Eosinophilia and reduced STAT3 signalling affect neutrophil cell death in autosomal-dominant Hyper-IgE syndrome.

The autosomal-dominant hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES), caused by mutations in signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3), is a rare primary immunodeficiency which predisposes to mucocutaneous candidiasis and staphylococcal skin and lung infections. This infection phenotype is suggestive of defects in neutrophils, but data on neutrophil functions in HIES are inconsistent. This study was undertaken to functionally characterize neutrophils in STAT3-deficient HIES patients and to analyse whether the ...

With Roots In California, Managed Competition Still Aims To Reform Health Care.

Managed competition is a concept that was born in California and has achieved a measure of acceptance there. As California and the United States as a whole continue to struggle with the challenge of providing high-quality health care at a manageable cost, it is worth asking whether managed competition-with its tools for harnessing market forces-continues to hold promise as a means of improving value in health care, and whether the standard conceptualization of managed competition should be modified in any w...

Does California's Low Carbon Fuel Standards reduce carbon dioxide emissions?

The Low Carbon Fuel Standards (LCFS) represents a new policy approach designed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by applying standards to all stages of motor fuel production. We use the synthetic control and difference-in-differences econometric methods, and Lasso machine learning to analyze the effect of the LCFS on emissions in California's transportation sector. The three different techniques provide robust evidence that the LCFS reduced carbon dioxide emissions in California's transportation sector by ...

Beyond The ACA: Paths To Universal Coverage In California.

California has long sought to achieve universal health insurance coverage for its residents. The state's uninsured population was dramatically reduced as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). However, faced with federal threats to the ACA, California is exploring how it might take greater control over the financing of health care. In 2017 the state Senate passed the Healthy California Act, SB-562, calling for California to adopt a single-payer health care system. The state Assembly did not vote on the ...

Reducing Access Disparities in California by Insuring Low-Income Undocumented Adults.

While the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law in 2010, expanded health insurance coverage to millions of Californians, it did not extend eligibility for coverage to undocumented U.S. residents. Federal policy prohibits the use of federal funds to provide Medicaid to undocumented individuals. In 2015, the state of California extended Medi-Cal (California's Medicaid program) to undocumented children using state funds, and policies to extend eligibility to undocumented adults have...

Transcutaneous bilirubinometer use and practices surrounding jaundice in 150 California newborn intensive care units.

Transcutaneous bilirubin measurements (TcBs) provide a noninvasive method for screening infants for hyperbilirubinemia and have been used extensively in term and late preterm newborns in well baby nurseries, offices, and outpatient clinics. Several studies have also demonstrated the utility of TcBs as a screening tool for infants > 28 weeks' gestation and their ability to reduce the need for blood sampling.
