Clinically Significant Fibrosis is Associated With Longitudinal Increases in Fibrosis-4 and NAFLD Fibrosis Scores.

There is limited knowledge regarding the longitudinal utility of biomarkers of fibrosis, such as the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) fibrosis score (NFS) or the fibrosis-4 score (FIB-4) score. We examined longitudinal changes in the NFS and the FIB-4 score in patients with NAFLD, with and without clinically significant fibrosis (CSF).


Comparative study of pressure (ankle-brachial pressure index) and flow (strain gauge plethysmography and reactive hyperaemia) measurements in diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease in patients with severe aortic stenosis.

The measurement of the ankle-brachial pressure index is a straightforward method for the detection of peripheral disease in the lower limbs. Only a few old studies with small numbers of patients have been conducted comparing the gold standard, ankle-brachial pressure index measurement, with strain gauge plethysmography and reactive hyperaemia for detecting peripheral arterial disease. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and accuracy of strain gauge plethysmography values compared with ...

Clinical factors contributing to postoperative aqueous flare intensity after 27-gauge pars plana vitrectomy for the primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

To investigate the perioperative clinical factors, which contribute to the postsurgical aqueous flare intensity (AFI) following 27-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (27GPPV) for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD).


Mental imagery for brain-computer interface control and communication in non-responsive individuals.

People who survive severe brain damage may eventually develop a prolonged consciousness disorder. Others can regain full consciousness but remain unable to speak or move because of the severity of the lesions, as for those with locked-in syndrome (LIS). Brain-computer interface techniques can be useful to disentangle these states by detecting neurophysiologic correlates of conscious processing of information to enable communication with these individuals after the diagnosis.

A simple risk score model for predicting contrast-induced nephropathy after coronary angiography in patients with diabetes.

Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a common complication in patients undergoing coronary angiography (CAG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and associated with poor outcome. Some previous studies have already set up models to predict CIN, but there is no model for patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) especially. Therefore, we aim to develop and validate a simple risk score for predicting the risk of CIN in patients with DM undergoing CAG/PCI.

Clinical prediction score of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in adolescent girls with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS-HS index).

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is common in obese adolescents with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), but there are no inexpensive ways to accurately identify NAFLD in PCOS. The objective was to develop a simple clinical score to screen for NAFLD risk in obese adolescents with PCOS.

Pilot study of a lifestyle intervention for bipolar disorder: Nutrition exercise wellness treatment (NEW Tx).

Individuals with bipolar disorder (BD) are more likely than the general population to develop risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in this clinical population. To address this disproportionate medical burden, we developed Nutrition Exercise and Wellness Treatment (NEW Tx), a lifestyle intervention for individuals with BD.

H2FPEF Score as a Prognostic Value in HFpEF patients.

The H2FPEF score is recognized as a simple method to diagnose heart failure (HF) with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF). We investigated the value of the H2FPEF score in predicting subsequent cardiovascular events in HFpEF patients.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION ON JAPANESE PUBLIC OPINION SURVEYS (2006-17) ABOUT NUCLEAR AND RADIATION APPLICATIONS.

Public opinion on the application of nuclear technology and radiation could change when a nuclear related event occurs. Japan Atomic Energy Relations Organization has tracked its variation through a nationwide opinion survey in Japan by almost the same way every year since FY 2006. We can identify a continuous long-term fluctuation of Japanese opinion before and after the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster using the data. In this study we focused on the trends of public opinion for nuclear energy, imp...

The developed analytical method consists of analytes separation from the biological matrices by protein precipitation (blood plasma) or solvent extraction (brain tissue), derivatizat...

The Ottawa score performs poorly in cancer patients with incidental pulmonary embolism.

The Ottawa score was previously developed to predict recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in cancer patients with VTE. The performance of this score in patients with incidental VTE is currently unclear.

Prognostic Value of a New Lung Ultrasound Score To Predict Intensive Care Unit Stay in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery.

lung ultrasound (LUS) in pediatric cardiac surgery is gaining consensus. We evaluated: 1) the prognostic value of a new LUS-score in paediatric cardiac surgery, and 2) compared LUS-Score to conventional risk factors including age, STAT-score, cardiopulmonary-bypass time-CPB, and prognostic biomarkers including brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and Cystatin-C.

Genetic causes of surfactant protein abnormalities.

Mutations in genes encoding proteins critical for the production and function of pulmonary surfactant cause diffuse lung disease. Timely recognition and diagnosis of affected individuals is important for proper counseling concerning prognosis and recurrence risk.

Defining the Genetic, Genomic, Cellular, and Diagnostic Architectures of Psychiatric Disorders.

Studies of the genetics of psychiatric disorders have become one of the most exciting and fast-moving areas in human genetics. A decade ago, there were few reproducible findings, and now there are hundreds. In this review, we focus on the findings that have illuminated the genetic architecture of psychiatric disorders and the challenges of using these findings to inform our understanding of pathophysiology. The evidence is now overwhelming that psychiatric disorders are "polygenic"-that many genetic loci c...

Multicenter prospective study validating the efficacy of a quantitative assessment tool for frailty in patients with urological cancers.

We prospectively validate the efficacy of the frailty discriminant score (FDS) in individuals with urological cancers, as there has been growing importance in evaluating frailty in clinical practice. A prospective, multicenter study was conducted from February 2017 to April 2019. We enrolled 258 patients with urological cancers and 301 community-dwelling participants who were assessed for frailty. Frailty was assessed using FDS that includes ten items, such as physical, mental, and blood biochemical tests. ...

Precision Retargeting: A Selective Covalent Inhibitor Illuminates CDK7 Biology.

In this issue of Cell Chemical Biology, Olson et al. (2019) develop the first selective CDK7 irreversible inhibitor. Elegant cell-based studies using a CDK7 mutant that is not covalently engaged by the probe helped decipher the effects of inhibiting the kinase on the cell cycle and gene transcription.

The role of parental genotype in predicting offspring years of education: evidence for genetic nurture.

Similarities between parent and offspring are widespread in psychology; however, shared genetic variants often confound causal inference for offspring outcomes. A polygenic score (PGS) derived from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) can be used to test for the presence of parental influence that controls for genetic variants shared across generations. We use a PGS for educational attainment (EA3; N ≈ 750 thousand) to predict offspring years of education in a sample of 2517 twins and both parents. ...

Polygenic adaptation: From sweeps to subtle frequency shifts.

Evolutionary theory has produced two conflicting paradigms for the adaptation of a polygenic trait. While population genetics views adaptation as a sequence of selective sweeps at single loci underlying the trait, quantitative genetics posits a collective response, where phenotypic adaptation results from subtle allele frequency shifts at many loci. Yet, a synthesis of these views is largely missing and the population genetic factors that favor each scenario are not well understood. Here, we study the archi...

Individuals with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) frequently have sleep disturbances, daytime sleepiness, and/or circadian rhythm abnormalities. This article reviews recent advancements and key future directions: examining group differences across the life span, advancing a developmental psychopathology perspective, moving from correlation to causation, conceptualizing ADHD as a 24-hour disorder, understanding sleep in relation to other health behaviors, and evaluating sleep in interventions ...

Development of a prognostic risk score to aid antibiotic decision-making for children aged 2-59 months with World Health Organization fast breathing pneumonia in Malawi: An Innovative Treatments in Pneumonia (ITIP) secondary analysis.

Due to increasing antimicrobial resistance in low-resource settings, strategies to rationalize antibiotic treatment of children unlikely to have a bacterial infection are needed. This study's objective was to utilize a database of placebo treated Malawian children with World Health Organization (WHO) fast breathing pneumonia to develop a prognostic risk score that could aid antibiotic decision making.

CP Violation in Higgs-Gauge Interactions: From Tabletop Experiments to the LHC.

We investigate the interplay between the high- and low-energy phenomenology of CP-violating interactions of the Higgs boson with gauge bosons. For this purpose, we use an effective field theory approach and consider all dimension-six operators arising in so-called universal theories. We compute their loop-induced contributions to electric dipole moments and the CP asymmetry in B→X_{s}γ and compare the resulting current and prospective constraints to the projected sensitivity of the LHC. Low-energy measur...

Mindfulness for psychosis: a humanising therapeutic process.

Mindfulness for psychosis has been slow to develop, in part because of the fear and stigma that surrounds psychosis. Breakthrough research showing how to adapt mindfulness groups for people with current distressing psychosis has led to a growing research base and it is now clear that adapted mindfulness for psychosis is both safe and therapeutic. However, how it works is less clear. This article argues that at its heart is a core humanising therapeutic process, characterised by key metacognitive insights an...

A practical composite risk score for the development of Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome from Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli.

Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome (HUS) is a serious complication of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) infection and the key reason why intensive health protection against STEC is required. However, although many potential risk factors have been identified, accurate estimation of risk of HUS from STEC remains challenging. Therefore, we aimed to develop a practical composite score to promptly estimate the risk of developing HUS from STEC.
