Assessing the performance of only HRP2 and HRP2 with pLDH based rapid diagnostic tests for the diagnosis of malaria in middle Ghana, Africa.

Rapid diagnostic test (RDT) kits have been useful tools to screen for the presence of infection with malaria parasites. Despite the improvement, false results from RDTs present a greater challenge. The need for quality test kits is desirable. We evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of three malaria RDTs.

Pharmacists and patients sharing decisions about medicines: Development and feasibility of a conversation guide.

In Australia, the Home Medicines Review (HMR) is a nationally-funded program, led by pharmacists to optimize medication use for older people. A Medicines Conversation Guide was developed for pharmacists to use in the context of a HMR.

The European Medicines Agency and Family Doctors.

A pilot trial of the peer-based distribution of HIV self-test kits among fishermen in Bulisa, Uganda.

HIV self-testing (HIVST) addresses barriers to HIV diagnosis among men, but current approaches to distributing HIVST kits only reach a subset of the men requiring testing.

False memory at short and long term.

False memories are well-established long-term memory (LTM) phenomena. Recent reports of false recognition at short term suggest that working memory (WM) could also give rise to false memories, supporting the unitary view of memory. Alternatively, we hypothesized that the emergence of false memories at short term results from the impairment of WM maintenance, memory performance relying then on LTM. More specifically, we assumed that false memories rely on the retrieval of gist traces of the memory items whil...

Marketing authorisation applications submitted to the European Medicines Agency by small and medium-sized enterprises: an analysis of major objections and their impact on outcomes.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are an important source of innovative medicines. Compared with their larger counterparts, they experience challenges as a result of insufficient human and financial resources that can hamper drug development and regulatory compliance. This analysis reviews the profile of major objections raised in applications for medicines for human use submitted by SMEs to the European Medicines Agency between 2011 and 2015 and their impact on the outcome of applications. It showe...

Using a Social Network Strategy to Distribute HIV Self-Test Kits to African American and Latino MSM.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) continue to be disproportionately impacted globally by the HIV epidemic. Studies suggest that HIV Self-testing (HIVST) is highly acceptable among MSM. Social network strategies to increase testing are effective in reaching MSM, particularly MSM of color, who may not otherwise test. We tested a social-network based strategy to distribute HIVST kits to African American and Latino MSM.

Quality of medicines: Deficiencies found by Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA) on good manufacturing practices international inspections.

The circulation of poor quality medicines, especially in the developing countries, is a public health concern. Compliance with good manufacturing practices (GMP) is essential to ensure the quality, efficacy, and safety of medicines. This study evaluated the outcomes of the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency's (ANVISA) international inspections of two years (2015 and 2016) and compared these to those of other regulatory authorities. The information from 255 inspection reports was analyzed, and the type and e...

Improving STD service delivery: Would American patients and providers use self-tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia?

Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhea (GC) are the most frequently reported notifiable diseases in the United States and costs for diagnosis and treatment of these two infections are approximately $700 million per year. A proposed new method for screening for these two infections is self-tests; similar to at-home pregnancy and HIV tests which do not include sending collected specimens to a laboratory for diagnosis. However, no such self-tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STD) have been ap...

Can Aspergillus fumigatus conidia cause false-positive results in the galactomannan enzyme immunoassay test?

Several factors can cause false-positive results in the galactomannan (GM) test; however, others remain unknown. Presently, the impact of airborne contamination by Aspergillus conidia during enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) remains uninvestigated.

Preparing Clinicians for Transitioning Patients Across Care Settings and Into the Home Through Simulation.

Assuring home care staff competencies through simulation has the potential to improve care transitions and clinical outcomes. Recreating a home environment can be used for orientation of home care staff and to meet other learning needs. Lessons learned from the use of simulation in a geriatric nursing course in a prelicensure program can be used to prepare clinicians for transitioning patients across care settings. With simulation, learners can identify challenges in patient safety, pain management, and man...

Naloxone Effectiveness: A Systematic Review.

Opioid abuse and overdose is a public health concern as it relates to increased morbidity and mortality.

Administration of mycophenolic acid is not associated with malformations in descendants from kidney transplanted males.

In pregnant women, the use of Mycophenolic acid (MPA) is associated with teratogenicity. Recently, the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the Spanish Agency of Medicine and Sanitary Products (AEMPS) warned about the potential teratogenic effects of MPA. These adverse events may occur even in children from males on treatment with MPA. However, evidence of malformations in offsprings of male kidney transplanted patients (KT) exposed to MPA is limited. Thus, the present study aimed to evaluate the incidence ...

Improving the calling of non-invasive prenatal testing on 13-/18-/21-trisomy by support vector machine discrimination.

With the advance of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) has been developed and employed in fetal aneuploidy screening on 13-/18-/21-trisomies through detecting cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) in maternal blood. Although Z-test is widely used in NIPT NGS data analysis, there is still necessity to improve its accuracy for reducing a) false negatives and false positives, and b) the ratio of unclassified data, so as to lower the potential harm to patients as well as ...

Intellectual factors in false memories of patients with schizophrenia.

The current study explored the intellectual factors in false memories of 139 patients with schizophrenia, using a recognition task and an IQ test. The full-scale IQ score of the participants ranged from 57 to 144 (M = 100, SD = 14). The full IQ score had a negative correlation with false recognition in patients with schizophrenia, and positive correlations with high-confidence true recognition and discrimination rates. Further analyses with the subtests' scores revealed that false recognition was ne...

Efforts included Zika virus training, distribution of Zika prevention kits, a mass media campaign, and free home mosquito spraying. We used telephone interview data from pregnant women participating in Puerto Rico's Women, Infants, and Children Program to test associations between program participati...

Cognitive screening instruments: how much overdiagnosis do they create?

Overdiagnosis appears to be an umbrella term, or an overarching category with various components, such as overdetection, overdefinition, or overselling. How these qualitative elements map on to the quantitative categories (true positives and negatives, false positives and negatives) as defined in screening test accuracy studies is not clear to me. Whilst on face value overdetection might seem to be equivalent to false positives, Brodersen and his colleagues are explicit that overdiagnosis is not a false pos...
