In the present study, we have investigated the protective effect of a heterologous prime-boost strategy with priming plasmid DNA followed by recombinant adenovirus, both expressing BmAMA1, against Babesia microti infection. Four groups consisting of 3 hamsters per group were immunized with pBmAMA1/Ad5BmAMA1, pNull/Ad5BmAMA1, pBmAMA1/Ad5Null and pNull/Ad5Null, followed by challenge infection with B. microti. Our results showed that hamsters immunized with plasmid and adenovirus expressing BmAMA1 developed a ...
The JOSPT/Movement Science Media (MSM) Board of Directors is pleased to announce its appointment of the first woman Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of the Journal, Clare L. Ardern, PT, PhD. Dr Ardern succeeds J. Haxby Abbott, DPT, PhD, FNZCP, who held this position for 2 years from January 2016 through December 2017. Beginning July 1, 2018 and for the next year, Dr Ardern will work collaboratively as EIC Elect with Guy G. Simoneau, PT, PhD, ATC, FAPTA, who is currently serving as Interim EIC and previously served as ...
The United States prohibited federal funding for syringe exchange programs for people who inject drugs nearly continuously from 1988 to 2015, despite growing scientific evidence, diminishing AIDS-related controversy, and tens of thousands of deaths from injection-related AIDS. This study investigates the political and institutional bases of this long-term failure to support lifesaving public policy.
In best linear prediction (BLP), a true test score is predicted by observed item scores and by ancillary test data. If the use of BLP rather than a more direct estimate of a true score has disparate impact for different demographic groups, then a fairness issue arises. To improve population invariance but to preserve much of the efficiency of BLP, a modified approach, penalized best linear prediction, is proposed that weights both mean square error of prediction and a quadratic measure of subgroup biases. T...
To develop a prostate tumor habitat risk scoring (HRS) system based on multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) referenced to prostatectomy Gleason Score (GS) for automatic delineation of Gross Tumor Volumes (GTVs). A workflow for integration of HRS into radiotherapy (RT) boost volume dose escalation was developed in the framework of a Phase II randomized clinical trial (BLaStM).
It is well established that test anxiety is negatively related to examination performance. Based on attentional control theory, the aim of this study was to examine whether increased effort can protect against performance debilitating test anxiety. Four hundred and sixty-six participants (male = 228; 48.9%; White = 346, 74.3%; mean age = 15.7 years) completed self-report measures of test anxiety and effort that were matched to performance on a high-stakes secondary school examination. The worry and bodily s...
In France, accessibility to primary health care seems to be threatened by the existence or the emergence of underserved areas often called "medical deserts". These areas are characterized by several parameters such as a poor number of health professionals, remoteness or high needs of care. We discuss here different methods to measure primary health care accessibility or imbalance between health care providers and needs. Thus, we aim to show the confusion generated by the concept of "medical deserts" and the...
Free-living amoebae are widespread in freshwater ecosystems. Although many studies have investigated changes in their communities across space, the temporal variability and the drivers of community changes across different habitat types are poorly understood. A total of 108 surface water samples were collected on a seasonal basis from four reservoirs and two rivers in Xiamen city, subtropical China. We used high throughput sequencing and qPCR methods to explore the occurrence and abundance of free-living am...
In surgical training, most assessment tools focus on advanced clinical decision-making or operative skill. Available tools often require significant investment of resources and time. A high stakes oral examination is also required to become board-certified in surgery. We developed Individual Clinical Evaluation (ICE) to evaluate intern-level clinical decision-making in a time- and cost-efficient manner, and to introduce the face-to-face evaluation setting.
From 2012 through 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided funding to 5 health departments for demonstration projects using HIV surveillance data to link people with newly diagnosed HIV to care. We assessed how well these health departments established linkage to care, how the demonstration projects helped them with this work, and if they sustained these activities after CDC funding ended.
The method used to collect, store, and analyze data can affect the quality of data obtained. Many studies have shown the advantages of electronic systems over paper. Numerous tools are available for this purpose; however, they tend to be implemented only in high-budget protocols as they tend to be expensive.
Robotic-assisted unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) has gained popularity over the last decade claiming enhanced surgical precision and better joint kinematics, with peer-reviewed publications about this new technology also increasing over the past few years. The purpose of our study was to compare manuscripts about robotic-assisted UKA to those about standard UKA in terms of industry funding, author conflict of interest, scientific quality, and bibliometrics.
The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements' (NCRP) vision for the future is to improve radiation protection for the general public and workers. This vision is embodied within NCRP's ongoing initiatives: preparedness for nuclear terrorism, increasing the number of radiation professionals critically needed for the nation, providing new guidance for radiation protection in the United States, addressing the protection issues surrounding the ever-increasing use of ionizing radiation in medicin...
A new oral antidiabetic drug class, sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2 inhibitors), has been covered by national health insurance in Taiwan since May 2016. This study estimated the impacts of insurance coverage for SGLT-2 inhibitors on the replacement effects of antidiabetic drug use and the overall budget for antidiabetic drugs in Taiwan.
District team problem solving (DTPS) was developed by WHO in the 1980s to explicitly engage local stakeholders in decentralized planning and, in later iterations, budgeting of health services. It became WHO's global flagship approach to district-level health priority-setting and planning. DTPS entails multisectoral stakeholders (the team) using local data to prioritize and fund services, and should enhance capacity in management of decentralized healthcare. From the late 1990s, DTPS evolved through several ...
Few patient populations are as helpless and in need of advocacy as children with cancer. Pharmaceutical companies have historically faced significant financial disincentives to pursue pediatric oncology therapeutics, including low incidence, high costs of conducting pediatric trials, and a lack of funding for early-stage research.
