Surgeons frequently use orthopedic devices in an off-label manner. It is the responsibility of the surgeon to be familiar with the product and to use it based on scientific and clinical rationale. However, such practices are poorly publicized, and there remains paucity in the current literature surrounding the off-label use of orthopedic devices. Furthermore, the off-label use of devices is fraught with difficulty, including limitations in investigational studies and insurance reimbursement or coverage of u...
Multi-label learning is the problem where each instance is associated with multiple labels simultaneously. Binary Relevance (BR) is a representative algorithm for multi-label learning. However, it may suffer the class-imbalance issue especially when the label space is large. Besides, it ignores the label correlations, which is of importance to improve the performance. Moreover, labels might have positive and negative correlations in real applications, but existing methods seldom exploit the negative label c...
In the past two decades, many legislative and regulatory initiatives were taken globally to improve drug use in children. However, children are still found to be prescribed with off-label drugs. This study was conducted to provide an overview of the worldwide trend in off-label prescribing in children from the year 1996 to 2016.
Imago dispersal by the West Indian drywood termite, Cryptotermes brevis (Walker) (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae) potentially initiates or expands structural infestations by the establishment of incipient colonies. The prevention of drywood termite colonization in structures is difficult, but a substantial reduction may be obtainable. In this experiment, seasonal dispersal of C. brevis imagos commenced from infested wood in a laboratory building. A bioassay was developed to determine the efficacy of 100, 50, and ...
To evaluate the safety and maintenance of efficacy with ABT-122, a bi-specific monoclonal antibody targeting TNF and IL-17A, in patients with RA or PsA in open-label, 24-week extensions [open-label extensions (OLEs)] of 12-week, randomized, double-blind studies.
Although physicians are aware of the risks of prescribing long-term off-label antipsychotics in people with intellectual disability, attempts to discontinue often fail. This study aimed to identify potential determinants of successful and failed discontinuation. Long-term off-label antipsychotics were tapered in 14 weeks, with 12.5% of baseline dose every 2 weeks. Participants living in facilities offered by intellectual disability service providers, ≥6 years, with an IQ
We report the case of an 8-year-old boy who was taking amantadine off label for multiple childhood neurobehavioral disorders and subsequently developed livedo reticularis. Although this side effect is well-described in adult patients taking amantadine for Parkinson disease, it is now being seen in children as the off-label use of amantadine is expanded to this population.
Many of the medications prescribed to children are off-label and/or unlicensed because pharmacologic evaluations have not been performed in this age group.
To improve nutritional status and prevent chronic nutrition-related diseases, international organizations have recommended the use of multiple strategies, including front-of-package nutrition labelling (FOPL). In France, the Nutri-Score has been selected by health authorities in March 2017. However, to be effective in purchasing situations, the label needs to be well understood, which may be influenced by label format and sociodemographic characteristics. This study aimed at investigating the objective unde...
Open-label placebos are a novel treatment option, in which participants take placebos with full knowledge that they do not contain active medicine. Open-label placebo treatments have been shown to result in patient-reported symptom improvements, but they have not been tested on objectively measurable physiological outcomes such as wound healing.
This study analyzed the appropriateness of drug therapies prescribed for a particular category of patients: the seafarers. We investigated an important problem of this area: the off-label use of drugs, which resulted to be a consequence of major shortcomings in the on-board pharmacies of ships. The off-label use of drugs is allowed, but can lead to some not negligible ethical and health problems, compromising the quality of provided healthcare.
To evaluate the prevalence of off-label and unlicensed prescribing in inpatients at a major paediatric teaching hospital in Western Australia and to identify which drugs are commonly prescribed off-label or unlicensed, including factors influencing such prescribing.
G-quadruplexes are four-stranded nucleic acid structures typically stabilized by GGGG tetrads. These structures are intrinsically fluorescent, which expands the known scope of nucleic acid function and raises the possibility that they could eventually be used as signaling components in label-free sensors constructed from DNA or RNA. In this study we systematically investigated the effects of mutations in tetrads, loops, and overhanging nucleotides on the fluorescence intensity and emission wavelength of mor...
Densin is a scaffold protein known to associate with key elements of neuronal signaling. The present study examines the distribution of densin at the ultrastructural level in order to reveal potential sites that can support specific interactions of densin. Immunogold electron microscopy on hippocampal cultures shows intense labeling for densin at postsynaptic densities (PSDs), but also some labeling at extrasynaptic plasma membranes of soma and dendrites and endoplasmic reticulum. At the PSD, the median dis...
We used a visual oddball paradigm to investigate whether a shared verbal label makes two objects belonging to different conceptual categories less perceptually distinct. In Experiment 1, the critical images shared a label as well as some perceptual features referring to the color and the fruit), and in Experiment 2, the critical images shared a label but no perceptual features referring to the animal and the sports equipment). In both experiments comparison images were similar to each of the critical imag...
Off-label prescribing of psychiatric drugs is common, despite lacking strong scientific evidence of efficacy and potentially increasing risk for adverse events. The goal of this study was to characterize prevalence of off-label prescriptions of psychiatric drugs and examine patient and clinician predictors of off-label use. This manuscript presents a retrospective, cross-sectional study using data from the 2012 and 2013 National Ambulatory Medical Care Surveys (NAMCS). The study examined all adult outpatien...
Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have shown superior performance on the task of single-label image classification. However, the applicability of CNNs to multilabel images still remains an open problem, mainly because of two reasons. First, each image is usually treated as an inseparable entity and represented as one instance, which mixes the visual information corresponding to different labels. Second, the correlations amongst labels are often overlooked. To address these limitations, we propose a ...
Clinical trials of dupilumab have shown efficacy in treating moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) in adult patients. While a phase 2 trial of dupilumab has shown efficacy and safety in children, the medication awaits Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, and off-label use is limited by dosing currently available to adults. We present this case series to describe the efficacy and safety profile of off-label dupilumab use in six pediatric patients treated by one provider in a private practice.
In the version of this Article originally published, in Fig. 2c, the '+' sign and 'OSKM' were superimposed in the label '+OSKM'. In Fig. 4e, in the labels, all instances of 'Ant' should have been 'Anti-'. And, in Fig. 7a, the label '0.0' was misplaced; it should have been on the colour scale bar. These figures have now been corrected in the online versions.
In the version of this Article originally published, the word 'stereoisomerism' was erroneously included in the label of the upper-right box of Fig. 1. The label within the box has been corrected and it now reads: "Constitutional isomerism (same formula, different connectivity)". This has been corrected in the online version of the Article.
To evaluate post-marketing label changes in dosing information of biologicals.
Nutraceuticals are advertised and sold with the label claim of being natural and safe herbal products. Due to the absence of clear regulations and guidelines for safety assessments of these products, nutraceuticals are commonly adulterated in order to increase sales. The objective of the current study was to design a comprehensive evaluation system to assess the safety, efficacy, authenticity according to label claim and pharmaceutical quality, of herbal slimming products in between 2015 and 2017.
To evaluate the use of off-label and unlicensed medicines in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of a teaching maternity hospital specialized in high risk pregnancy.
Distance metric learning (DML) has achieved great success in many computer vision tasks. However, most existing DML algorithms are based on point estimation, and thus are sensitive to the choice of training examples and tend to be over-fitting in the presence of label noise. In this paper, we present a robust DML algorithm based on Bayesian inference. In particular, our method is essentially a Bayesian extension to a previous classic DML method - LMNN  and we use stochastic variational inference (SVI) to...
