The interactions among macroprices with leads and lags play a significant role in explaining the behavior of an aggregate price index. Thus, to understand inflation and deflation, it is essential to explore the mechanism according to which these macroprices interact with each other. On the basis of a new method, we show that, irrespective of the sources of shocks, a robust flow of changes occurs in domestic prices from upstream to downstream. Moreover, we demonstrate that macroprices change in clusters, and we identify these clusters. Firms are not symmetric. Overall, our analysis suggests that the inertia arising from input/output linkages in production explains the behavior of aggregate prices.

Payers and purchasers in the United States seek to moderate drug prices and align them with the incremental clinical benefit offered by individual medications; some policymakers have proposed linking ...
Evidence is limited and mixed as to how improved price transparency affects patients' demand for healthcare. Price transparency usually affects both the supply and the demand side of healthcare. Howev...
To mitigate the effect of high prices, in 2008 Mexico established a commission that negotiates single procurement prices for patented medicines in the public sector.
External reference pricing (ERP) seeks to rationalize prices and contain costs using foreign prices as a reference for the determination of domestic prices and is often used as the starting point for ...

Coronary angiography is now mainly performed via the radial route rather than the femoral route. At the end of the procedure, the sheath is removed and a band is inflated to obtain hemosta...
Deflation of the pneumatic tourniquet used in lower limb surgery is usually associated with hemodynamic instability, metabolic and respiratory changes. These changes are usually tolerated ...
After performing a radial angiography/percutaneous coronary intervention (CAG/PCI), the sheath is removed and a compression device is used to achieve hemostasis. Recent studies have indica...

A group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of alpha- or beta-xylosidic linkages. EC 18.104.22.168 catalyzes the endo-hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-D-xylosidic linkages; EC 22.214.171.124 catalyzes the endo-hydrolysis of 1,3-beta-D-xylosidic linkages; EC 126.96.36.199 catalyzes the exo-hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-D-linkages from the non-reducing termini of xylans; and EC 188.8.131.52 catalyzes the exo-hydrolysis of 1,3-beta-D-linkages from the non-reducing termini of xylans. Other xylosidases have been identified that catalyze the hydrolysis of alpha-xylosidic bonds.
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
