Spending on Antineoplastic Agents in the United States, 2011 to 2016.

Recent cancer drug approvals are lauded as being more effective with relatively fewer adverse effects, but these treatments come with a great cost to the US health care system. There is little information on recent trends in actual antineoplastic expenditures representative of the whole US health care system or by sector. Therefore, the objective of this study was to describe antineoplastic expenditures in the United States by year and sector.

Interactive reservoir computing for chunking information streams.

Chunking is the process by which frequently repeated segments of temporal inputs are concatenated into single units that are easy to process. Such a process is fundamental to time-series analysis in biological and artificial information processing systems. The brain efficiently acquires chunks from various information streams in an unsupervised manner; however, the underlying mechanisms of this process remain elusive. A widely-adopted statistical method for chunking consists of predicting frequently repeate...

This article describes the qualitative results of a mixed-methods study of nine home care nurses' experiences caring for Veterans. Three themes emerged from the data: Challenges Coordinating Care, Building a Rapport Takes More Time, and Recognizing Impact of Mili...

"Like Heart Valve Clinic, it Probably Saves Lives, but… Who Has Time for That?" The Challenge of Disseminating Multidisciplinary Cancer Care in the United States.

Multidisciplinary care is much advocated, little practiced. Prabhu Das and colleagues report on their comprehensive review of the published literature from the United States on the effects of this model of care delivery and demonstrate the dearth of high-quality studies of the process and outcome benefits of this structural model of cancer care delivery. See referenced original article on pages 1-11, this issue.

Sexuality, a topic that surgeons should discuss with women before risk-reducing mastectomy and breast reconstruction.

While sexual health is an important aspect of quality of life, sexual issues usually go unaddressed during patient-provider communication. Breast cancer treatments and specifically breast surgery impact women's sexual well-being. However, women do not receive adequate information on this subject. Women who underwent prophylactic mastectomy and breast reconstruction invariably reported that they had underestimated the impact of mastectomy and reconstruction on their sexuality, and expressed a need for inform...

A Mobile Health Wallet for pregnancy-related healthcare in Madagascar: a mixed-methods study on opportunities and challenges.

Mobile savings and payment systems have been widely adopted to store money and to pay for a variety of services, including healthcare. However, the possible implications of these technologies on financing and payment for maternal healthcare services - which commonly require large one-time out-of-pocket payments - have not yet been systematically assessed in low-resource settings.

Quantum Hall Effect in Electron-doped Black Phosphorus Field-effect Transistors.

The advent of black phosphorus field-effect transistors (FETs) has brought new possibilities in the study of two-dimensional (2D) electron systems. In a black phosphorus FET, the gate induces highly anisotropic two-dimensional electron and hole gases. While the 2D hole gas in black phosphorus has reached high carrier mobilities that led to the observation of the integer quantum Hall effect, the improvement in the sample quality of the 2D electron gas (2DEG) has however been only moderate; quantum Hall effec...

Impact of Videotaped Information on the Experience of Parents of Children with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Videotaped information has been shown to be effective in reducing parental anxiety and facilitating knowledge transfer in various clinical settings. There is lack of literature on the use of videotaped information during the pediatric oncology initial family disclosure meeting. The purpose of this study was to deliver an informative DVD, highlighting information on childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), to parents of children with newly diagnosed ALL and to assess if the DVD provided increased levels...

The importance of access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including abortion: A statement from women's health professional organizations.

Barriers to women's reproductive healthcare access, particularly for termination of pregnancy, are increasing at the local, regional, and national levels through numerous institutional, legislative, and regulatory restrictions. Lack of access to reproductive healthcare has negative consequences for women's health. Twelve women's healthcare organizations affirm their support for access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including abortion.

Differences in healthcare outcomes between teaching and non teaching hospitals for patients with delirium: a retrospective cohort study.

The physician workforce at teaching hospitals differs compared to non-teaching hospitals, and data suggest that patient outcomes may also be dissimilar. Delirium is a common, costly disorder among hospitalized patients and approaches to care are not standardized.

The hunt for elusive molecules: Insights from joint theoretical and experimental investigations.

Rotational spectroscopy is an invaluable tool to unambiguously determine the molecular structure of a species, and sometimes even to establish its very existence. This article illustrates how experimental and theoretical state-of-the-art tools can be used in tandem to investigate the rotational structure of molecules, with particular emphasis on those that have long remained elusive. The examples of three emblematic species --- \textit{gauche}-butadiene, disilicon carbide, and germanium dicarbide--- highlig...

S100A7 in Psoriasis: Immunodetection and Activation by CRISPR technology.

Psoriasis, an inflammatory autoimmune skin disease, is the result of a chronic interaction between hyperproliferative keratinocytes and infiltrating activated immune cells. The mechanisms underlying psoriasis pathogenesis remain largely unknown, although a combination of genetic and environmental factors plays an important role in its development. S100A7 is overexpressed in psoriasis, and there is growing evidence that S100A7 may be involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Since the mechanisms underlying ...
