Results suggest that a fixed monthly income and a 10-year guarantee period are two signific...

Consumer and product-specific characteristics influencing the effect of nutrition, health and risk reduction claims on preferences and purchase behavior - A systematic review.

The research on nutrition, health, and risk reduction claims (NHR claims) shows a lack of consensus as to whether these claims have a positive or negative effect on consumer's preferences and purchase behavior. This issue has been highlighted by many authors. Therefore, a comprehensive literature review was performed to find reasons for contradictory results. First, a theoretical framework was developed which divided the determinants of the effects of NHR claims on consumers' preferences and purchase behavi...

'It depends what you mean by leadership': An analysis of stakeholder perspectives on consumer leadership.

Contemporary mental health policies call for increased involvement of consumers in leadership across mental health service design, delivery, and evaluation. However, consumer leadership is not currently well understood within academia or in mental health services themselves. This study investigates how consumer leadership is currently conceptualized by stakeholders at the service delivery level. To this end, semistructured interviews were conducted with 14 mental health organization members identifying as c...

Visual field testing in the era of portable consumer technology.

Consumer profile and acceptability of cooked beef steaks with edible and active coating containing oregano and rosemary essential oils.

Fresh animal products are highly perishable and characterized by a short shelf-life. Edible coatings with natural antioxidants (essential oils: EOs) could improve stability, ensure quality, and increase the shelf-life of fresh products. Due to the strong flavor of EOs, their use should consider consumer preferences and sensory acceptability. This study evaluated the effects of edible coating (with oregano and rosemary essential oil) on beef in relation to consumer preferences, besides the determination of h...

Effects of consumer use practices on nanosilver release from commercially available food contact materials.

Migration evaluation involving nano-enabled food contact materials (FCMs) mostly focuses on potential nanoparticle release from new unused products. This may not represent consumer use practices encountered by the FCMs in their lifecycle. In order to determine if product use impacts the release of nanoparticles or other FCM components, it is necessary to perform migration evaluations under typical consumer use scenarios. A quantitative assessment of nanoparticle release from a commercially available nanosil...

Caffeine content of pre-workout supplements commonly used by Australian consumers.

The stimulant properties of caffeine are often promoted in 'pre-workout' supplements (PWS) to assist with training, reduce the perception of fatigue, and for some brands, assist body fat loss. While manufacturers of PWS often indicate the inclusion of significant amounts of caffeine, no independent verification of the caffeine content of these products exists. The aim of this investigation was to independently assess the caffeine content of popular PWS in Australia and compare these values to nutrition info...

Effects of Dissolution Medium pH and Simulated Gastrointestinal Contraction on Drug Release from Nifedipine Extended-Release Tablets.

In contrast to nifedipine matrix-based extended-release dosage forms, the osmotic pump drug delivery systems have a zero-order drug release independent of external variables such as pH, agitation rate, and dissolution media. The objective of this study focuses on the in vitro evaluation of the mechanical properties of osmotic pump and polymer matrix-based formulations in dissolution media and the potential impacts that media pH and simulated gastrointestinal contraction have on drug release. Two strengths o...

Bayesian additive adaptive basis tensor product models for modeling high dimensional surfaces: an application to high-throughput toxicity testing.

Many modern datasets are sampled with error from complex high-dimensional surfaces. Methods such as tensor product splines or Gaussian processes are effective and well suited for characterizing a surface in two or three dimensions, but they may suffer from difficulties when representing higher dimensional surfaces. Motivated by high throughput toxicity testing where observed dose-response curves are cross sections of a surface defined by a chemical's structural properties, a model is developed to characteri...

Past, present and future of bioequivalence: Improving assessment and extrapolation of therapeutic equivalence for oral drug products.

The growth in the utilization of systems thinking principles has created a paradigm shift in the regulatory sciences and drug product development. Instead of relying extensively on end product testing and one-size-fits-all regulatory criteria, this new paradigm has focused on building quality into the product by design as well as fostering the development of product-specific, clinically relevant specifications. In this context, this commentary describes the evolution of bioequivalence regulations up to the ...
