The study's objectives were to assess the extent to which packaged water producers follow product registration procedures and to assess the relationship between product registration and drinking water quality in Accra, Ghana. Following preliminary analysis of a national water quality survey, 118 packaged sachet water samples were collected by sampling all brands sold by 66 vendors. A sample of vendors was selected from two high-income and two low-income areas of Accra, Ghana. Sachet packaging and labelling ...
Proprietary names are often used when prescribing drug products in the United States. The purpose of this study is to describe prescribers' use of proprietary names for generic products, branded-generic names, on prescription orders and to identify prescribing practice trends to inform the development and evaluation of new proprietary names.
To identify if proprietary names are used by health care practitioners when prescribing over-the-counter (OTC) drug products. These findings can inform evaluation of proposed proprietary names for both prescription and OTC drug products.
The types of place names and the level of geographic detail that patients report to clinicians regarding their intended travel itineraries vary. The reported place names may not match those in published travel health recommendations, making traveler-specific recommendations potentially difficult and time-consuming to identify. Most published recommendations are at the country level; however, subnational recommendations exist when documented disease risk varies within a country, as for malaria and yellow fev...
Only recently, regulations on the names of medicines were developed. Regulations are mainly focused on avoiding the approval of medicine names that may be confusing to others. Furthermore, legal requirements do not include testing for human factors, such as potential users' preferences.
Deformable registration has been one of the pillars of biomedical image computing. Conventional approaches refer to the definition of a similarity criterion that, once endowed with a deformation model and a smoothness constraint, determines the optimal transformation to align two given images. The definition of this metric function is among the most critical aspects of the registration process. We argue that incorporating semantic information (in the form of anatomical segmentation maps) into the registrati...
The current status of the names Clostridium difficile and Clostridioides difficile is explained in view of the current confusion about the correct name of this well-known pathogen. Both names have been validly published under the provisions of the Prokaryotic Code and both names can be used.
A key question in cognition is whether animals that are proficient in a specific cognitive domain (domain specific hypothesis), such as spatial learning, are also proficient in other domains (domain general hypothesis) or whether there is a trade-off. Studies testing among these hypotheses are biased towards mammals and birds. To understand constraints on the evolution of cognition more generally, we need broader taxonomic and phylogenetic coverage. We used Australian eastern water skinks (Eulamprus quoyii)...
A fast and accurate intraoperative registration method is important for Computer-Aided Orthopedic Surgery (CAOS). A-mode ultrasound (US) is able to acquire bone surface data in a non-invasive manner. To utilize A-mode US in CAOS, a suitable registration algorithm is necessary with a small number of registration points and the presence of measurement errors. Therefore, we investigated the effects of (1) the number of registration points and (2) the Ultrasound Point Localization Error (UPLE) on the overall re...
Nearly half of the new names of prokaryotic taxa between the ranks of subspecies and class that were effectively published in journals other than the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (IJSEM) in the period 2014-2017 were never submitted for validation. A survey of such effectively published names that include information on the etymology of the name, a description of the taxon, and for species and subspecies generally at least one culture collection deposit, shows that for mo...
Homebirths are common in low and middle income countries and are associated with poor child survival. We assessed the feasibility of using smartphones by village health workers for pregnancy registration and the effectiveness of health text messages (SMS) sent to pregnant women through village health workers in reducing homebirths in rural Uganda.
Self-rated health (SRH) is a predictor of future health. However, the association between SRH in adolescence and health problems and health care utilization in adulthood has rarely been investigated. The aim of this study was to examine adolescent SRH as a predictor of general practitioner consultations in adulthood.
Image registration is a fundamental issue in multispectral image processing, and is challenged by two main characteristics of multispectral images. First, the regional intensities can be essentially different between band images. Second, the local contrasts of two difference band images are inconsistent or even reversed. Conventional measures can align images with different regional intensity levels, but may fail in the circumstance of severe local intensity variation. In this paper, a new measure called no...
Clinical trial registry is a free, open access platform which registers clinical trials, often done prospectively, minimizing the risk of selective reporting, publication bias and replication of trials, as well as allowing individuals to participate in the study. A prospective clinical trial registration has been made mandatory by International Committee of Medical Journals Editors (ICMJE), FDA US, World Medical Association (WMA) and International Society of Physical Therapy Journal Editors (ISPJE), followe...
In cardiac interventions, such as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), image guidance can be enhanced by involving preoperative models. Multimodality 3D/2D registration for image guidance, however, remains a significant research challenge for fundamentally different image data, i.e., MR to X-ray. Registration methods must account for differences in intensity, contrast levels, resolution, dimensionality, field of view. Furthermore, same anatomical structures may not be visible in both modalities. Current...
This paper presents a case study of sound symbolism, cases in which certain sounds tend to be associated with particular meanings. We used the corpus of all Japanese Pokémon names available as of October 2016. We tested the effects of voiced obstruents, mora counts, and vowel quality on Pokémon characters' size, weight, strength parameters, and evolution levels. We found that the number of voiced obstruents in Pokémon names correlates positively with size, weight, evolution levels, and general strength p...
A large body of research has identified cognitive skills associated with overall mathematics achievement, focusing primarily on identifying associates of procedural skills. Conceptual understanding, however, has received less attention, despite its importance for the development of mathematics proficiency. Consequently, we know little about the quantitative and domain-general skills associated with conceptual understanding. Here we investigated 8-10-year-old children's conceptual understanding of arithmetic...
There is debate whether both subjective and objective measures of socioeconomic status (SES) are needed to predict health, and whether these factors are explained by psychosocial characteristics. The aims were to investigate the association of socioeconomic and psychosocial variables with oral health impact and general health utility.
The objective of the study was to analyze the relationship between patient characteristics and the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) among patients with hepatitis C at the start of treatment, 2-12 weeks of treatment and ≥3 months post treatment using Short-Form 36 (SF-36). The eight domains and two composite scores of SF-36 were analyzed using 236 individuals. Compared to US general population norms, on average, the physical health scores were significantly lower for the studied hepatitis C populatio...
Practice-based registration could identify 'general' and 'homeopathic' prognostic factors for therapeutic success in patients who seek complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)/homeopathic treatment. Identification of 'best homeopathic cases' within a database could inform clinical research and improve homeopathic practice.
Despite experiencing higher rates of physical and mental health conditions compared with the general population, people with intellectual disability face inequitable access to healthcare services. Improving education of healthcare professionals is one way to reduce these inequalities.
Technology-based screening of young people for mental health disorders and health compromising behaviors in general practice increases the disclosure of sensitive health issues and improves patient-centered care. However, few studies investigate how general practitioners (GPs) and practice support staff (receptionists and practice managers) integrate screening technology into their routine work, including the problems that arise and how the staff surmount them.
Non-rigid registration is a common part of bioengineering model-generation workflows. Compared to common mesh-based methods, radial basis functions can provide more flexible deformation fields due to their meshless nature. We introduce an implementation of RBF non-rigid registration with iterative knot-placement to adaptively reduce registration error. The implementation is validated on surface meshes of the femur, hemi-pelvis, mandible, and lumbar spine. Mean registration surface errors ranged from 0.37 to...
An important technical issue in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) usage is how accurately the specific brain areas activated by TMS are assessed. However, in practice, electric field induced in TMS is dispersed and therefore actual estimation is still difficult. As a preliminary step, the projection line which is perpendicular to the TMS stimulation coil beneath the center of the coil must be accurately estimated into the brain. Therefore, we have developed a new TMS-MRI co-registration procedure that...
