Cross-border migration and initiation of others into drug injecting in Tijuana, Mexico.

Efforts to prevent injection drug use (IDU) are increasingly focusing on the role that people who inject drugs (PWID) play in facilitating the entry of others into this behaviour. This is particularly relevant in settings experiencing high levels of IDU, such as Mexico's northern border region, where cross-border migration, particularly through forced deportation, has been found to increase a range of health and social harms related to injecting.


Postoperative efficacy analysis of patients with facial nerve palsy associated with cholesteatoma otitis media: Our experience with 32 patients.

Patients who underwent surgery within 4 weeks after facial palsy had better outcomes than those who had surgery later. The results of partial and near-complete decompression were good, with no difference between the two methods. Even if the symptom duration of facial paralysis was > 4 weeks, surgery still had an impact. Unlike in surgery for facial paralysis due to other causes, the integrity of the sheath membrane should be preserved. There is a lag in the electroneurography test results. This article is p...

Guidelines in CHARGE syndrome and the missing link: Cranial imaging.

"CHARGE syndrome" is a complex syndrome with high and extremely variable comorbidity. As a result, clinicians may struggle to provide accurate and comprehensive care, and this has led to the publication of several clinical surveillance guidelines and recommendations for CHARGE syndrome, based on both single case observations and cohort studies. Here we perform a structured literature review to examine all the existing advice. Our findings provide additional support for the validity of the recently published...


Harnessing the power of social media in older adult nursing.

The adaptation of everyday practices in the adoption of chronic illness.

This article uses social practice theory to examine the role of information-seeking in the maintenance of existing lifestyle and illness-related adjustments in the context of chronic illnesses. The research findings are derived from a thematic analysis of 16 semi-structured in-depth interviews with Estonian Parkinson's disease patients. The coding scheme bases on the four practice elements outlined by Schatzki (practical understandings, rules, teleological structures and general understandings) and other ca...

The Role of Caregivers in Physical Activity for Older Adults With Alzheimer's Disease.

This study examined the determinants of physical activity (PA) for older adults with Alzheimer's disease (AD) to learn more about how to promote PA in this population. Caregivers of older adults with AD (N = 99) provided information related to care recipient's PA, as well as addressed sociodemographics and perceptions about their care recipient's PA. Gender of care recipient was a significant predictor of PA (β = .80, P < .05); men with AD participated in more PA than women with AD. Also, caregiver's outco...

Vacuolar ATPase as a possible therapeutic target in human acute myeloid leukemia.

V-ATPase is a proton pump expressed both in the membrane of intracellular organelles (e.g. endosomes, lysosomes, Golgi structures) and the plasma membrane. It is an important regulator of organellar functions, intracellular molecular trafficking, intercellular communication and intracellular signaling. It is therefore considered as a possible therapeutic target in the treatment of human malignancies. Areas covered: Relevant publications were identified through literature searches in the PubMed database. We ...

Main messages for primary care from the 2016 European Guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention in clinical practice.

In 2016, a new version of the European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Prevention was released, representing a partnership between the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and nine European societies, including Wonca-Europe. The ESC guidelines underscore the importance of a lifetime approach to cardiovascular (CV) risk since both CV risk and prevention are dynamic and continuous as patients' age and/or accumulate co-morbidities. Healt...

High-ACE Low Wage Workers: Occupational Health Nursing Research and Praxis Through a Trauma-Informed Lens.

Individuals with a history of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) disproportionately have poor mental and physical health outcomes. These experiences affect individuals across the life span extending beyond health with deleterious impact on work-related outcomes. Low-wage workers are particularly at risk. Social service and health organizations are becoming aware of the extent to which the populations they serve have been affected by these experiences. Employment support programs may serve high-ACE individ...

Barcoding in trypanosomes.

Trypanosomes (genus Trypanosoma) are parasites of humans, and wild and domestic mammals, in which they cause several economically and socially important diseases, including sleeping sickness in Africa and Chagas disease in the Americas. Despite the development of numerous molecular diagnostics and increasing awareness of the importance of these neglected parasites, there is currently no universal genetic barcoding marker available for trypanosomes. In this review we provide an overview of the methods used f...

Prevention: Saving lives: the importance of having Resolve.

A laboratory heterodyne emission spectrometer at submillimeter wavelengths.

We present first results on a newly built broadband emission spectrometer for the laboratory making use of a double sideband (DSB) heterodyne receiver. The new spectrometer is perfectly suited for high-resolution emission spectroscopy of molecules of astrophysical importance. The current SIS receiver operates at RF frequencies between 270 and 390 GHz, coincident with Band 7 of the ALMA telescope. The instantaneous bandwidth is 5 GHz (DSB). In this work the full spectrometer and its components are described....

Comparison of subchronic immunotoxicity of four different types of aluminum-based nanoparticles.

Nanoparticles (NPs) have recently emerged as an inhalable pollutant, owing to their applications, aluminum-based NPs (Al-NPs) have been prioritized for toxicity testing. In the current study, we compared the pulmonary biopersistence and subsequent toxicity of four different types of Al-NPs (two rod-type aluminum oxide NPs [AlONPs] with different aspect ratios [short (S)- and long (L)-AlONPs], spherical aluminum cerium oxide NPs [AlCeO3 , AlCeONPs] and spherical γ-aluminum oxide hydroxide nanoparticles [AlO...

Oral health status among children and adolescents in governmental and private schools of the Palestinian Territories.

Political conflicts in the Palestinian Territories (PT) have resulted in systematic deterioration of socio-economic conditions and health. The World Health Organization (WHO) has emphasised the negative impacts of social crisis on children' oral health and quality of life.

Eye gaze perception in bipolar disorder: Self-referential bias but intact perceptual sensitivity.

Deficits in social cognition predict poor functional outcome in severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and autism. However, research findings on social cognition in bipolar disorder (BD) are sparse and inconsistent. This study aimed to characterize a critical social cognitive process-eye gaze perception-and examine its functional correlates in BD to inform psychopathological mechanisms.

Comparative studies of critical physiological limits and vulnerability to environmental extremes in small ectotherms: how much environmental control is needed?

Researchers and practitioners are increasingly using comparative assessments of critical thermal and physiological limits to assess the relative vulnerability of ectothermic species to extreme thermal and aridity conditions occurring under climate change. In most assessments of vulnerability, critical limits are compared across taxa exposed to different environmental and developmental conditions. However, many aspects of vulnerability should ideally be compared when species are exposed to the same environme...

The hidden pathogenic potential of environmental fungi.

Invasive fungal infections are a growing threat to immunocompromised patients, highlighting the importance of monitoring fungal pathogens. Global warming (including climatic oscillations) may select for environmental species that have acquired thermotolerance, a key step toward pathogenesis to humans. Also, important virulence factors have developed in environmental fungi, because they are essential for yeast survival in the environment. Thus, fungi traditionally regarded as nonpathogenic to humans have vir...

How social stigma sustains the HIV treatment gap for MSM in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

There are gaps in HIV care for men who have sex with men (MSM) in African settings, and HIV social stigma plays a significant role in sustaining these gaps. We conducted a three-year research project with 49 HIV-positive MSM in two districts in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, to understand the factors that inform HIV care seeking behaviors. Semi-structured focus group discussions and interviews were conducted in IsiZulu, SiSwati, and some code-switching into English, and these were audio-recorded, transc...

Social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn have been used as tools in health care research, opening new horizons for research on health-related topics (e.g., the use of mobile social networking in weight loss programs). While there have been efforts to develop ethical guidelines for internet-related research, researchers still face unresolved ethical challenges. This article investigates some of the risks inherent in social media research and discusses how researchers should handle challe...

Healing Hands.

For the last seven years, my bride of 45 years has been working very hard to recover from a series of heart problems and two strokes. In 2015, after hundreds of therapies following her 2012 stroke, we were fortunate enough to find a therapist who understood the importance of compassion and empathy in clinical situations. Within a few months, my wife's physical, cognitive, mental, and emotional condition improved profoundly. As a photographer and author, I had been documenting her survival, recovery, and flo...

Assessment of uncertainty in discrete fracture network modeling using probabilistic distribution method.

There have been widespread concerns about solute transport problems in fractured media, e.g. the disposal of high-level radioactive waste in geological fractured rocks. Numerical simulation of particle tracking is gradually being employed to address these issues. Traditional predictions of radioactive waste transport using discrete fracture network (DFN) models often consider one particular realization of the fracture distribution based on fracture statistic features. This significantly underestimates the u...

Deep Convolutional Neural Network-Based Early Automated Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy Using Fundus Image.

The automatic detection of diabetic retinopathy is of vital importance, as it is the main cause of irreversible vision loss in the working-age population in the developed world. The early detection of diabetic retinopathy occurrence can be very helpful for clinical treatment; although several different feature extraction approaches have been proposed, the classification task for retinal images is still tedious even for those trained clinicians. Recently, deep convolutional neural networks have manifested su...

Off-Nadir Hyperspectral Sensing for Estimation of Vertical Profile of Leaf Chlorophyll Content within Wheat Canopies.

Monitoring the vertical profile of leaf chlorophyll (Chl) content within winter wheat canopies is of significant importance for revealing the real nutritional status of the crop. Information on the vertical profile of Chl content is not accessible to nadir-viewing remote or proximal sensing. Off-nadir or multi-angle sensing would provide effective means to detect leaf Chl content in different vertical layers. However, adequate information on the selection of sensitive spectral bands and spectral index formu...
