Advancing the Use of Patient Preference Information as Scientific Evidence in Medical Product Evaluation: A Summary Report of the Patient Preference Workshop.


Female cognitive performance and mass are correlated with different aspects of mate choice in the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata).

A female's cognitive ability may influence her mate preferences through various mechanisms. These mechanisms include the direct effect of cognitive ability on the information-processing skills used during mate choice, and the indirect effect of cognitive ability on quality when females mate assortatively. Here, we examined whether the ability to learn a novel foraging task, a cognitive skill which has been associated with reproductive success in other capacities, was correlated with song preferences in fema...

Picture recognition of food by sloth bears (Melursus ursinus).

Pictures are often used in cognitive research to represent objects and many species have demonstrated the ability to recognize two-dimensional pictures as representations of their three-dimensional counterparts. However, for ursids picture recognition has been reported in only one study of a single 11-year-old female American black bear (Johnson-Ulrich et al. 2016). We tested the picture recognition abilities of an additional species, the sloth bear. After a food preference test by which the bears' food opt...


Fos expression is increased in oxytocin neurons of female rats with a sexually conditioned mate preference for an individual male rat.

Evidence suggests an important role of Pavlovian learning in sexual partner selection. Female rats that experience paced copulation with a male scented with a neutral odor selectively solicit and receive ejaculations from the scented male relative to an unscented male. Exposure to the conditioned odor alone induces Fos protein in regions of the brain associated with sexual excitation. Here we tested whether female rats can be conditioned to show a sexual preference for an unscented male rat of the same stra...

Increased alcohol preference and intake in nicotine-preferring rats.

Alcohol and tobacco are among the leading substances that are misused together and shared genetic vulnerability is likely. Increased susceptibility to nicotine self-administration has been shown in alcohol-preferring rat-lines. However, a nicotine-preferring (nP) rat-line has not been studied for alcohol preference. To evaluate alcohol preference and intake in male and female nP rats. We hypothesized that nP rats and females would drink more ethanol than control rats and males, respectively. nP rats are bei...

Shared decision making when patients consider surgery for lumbar herniated disc: development and test of a patient decision aid.

Shared decision making (SDM) is a systematic approach aimed at improving patient involvement in preference-sensitive health care decisions. Choosing between surgical or non-surgical treatment for lumbar disc herniation, can be difficult as the evidence of a superior treatment is unclear, which makes it a preference-sensitive decision. The objectives of this study was therefore to assess the degree of SDM and afterwards to develop and test a patient decision aid (PtDA) to support SDM during the clinical enco...

Female Patient with Simultaneous Occurrence of Subacute Thyroiditis and Focal Autonomy.

A 57-year-old female patient presented at the emergency department with fatigue, increased sweating, flushing symptoms, loss of appetite, drowsiness and severe diarrhea. Besides she also mentioned painful left-sided sore throat radiating to the temples, beginning two weeks after a flu and subfebrile temperatures.

Gastric Bypass in Female Rats Lowers Concentrated Sugar Solution Intake and Preference Without Affecting Brief Access Licking After Long-Term Sugar Exposure.

In rodents, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) decreases intake of and preference for foods or fluids that are high in sugar. Whether these surgically-induced changes are due to decreases in the palatability of sugar stimuli is controversial. Here, RYGB and SHAM female rats were used to test the influence of prolonged ingestive experience with sugar solutions on the motivational potency of these stimuli to drive licking in brief-access tests. In Experiment 1, RYGB attenuated intake and caloric preference of 0....

If we build it, will they come? And will they stay? Commentary on Holmes et al. "Examining patterns of dose response for clients who do and do not complete Cognitive Processing Therapy".

Although evidence-based practice is becoming more widely accepted, the issue of patient preference has been relatively ignored. As noted by Holmes and colleagues (2019), when delivered in a community setting, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) can have a relatively high dropout rate (42 % in the Holmes et al. study). In this commentary, issues about the conceptualization of treatment dropout as one index of patient preference are discussed. Dropout can be conceptualized as a potential reflection of poor fit...

Using the Threshold Technique to Elicit Patient Preferences: An Introduction to the Method and an Overview of Existing Empirical Applications.

Patient preference information (PPI) is a topic of interest to regulators and industry. One of many known methods for eliciting PPI is the threshold technique (TT). However, empirical studies of the TT differ from each other in many ways and no effort to date has been made to summarize them or the evidence regarding the performance of the method. We sought to describe the TT and summarize the empirical applications of the method. Forty-three studies were reviewed. Most studies estimated the minimum level of...

Factors Complicating Discharge to Home Following Total Knee Arthroplasty-A Single Institution Initiative.

Recently, with the Medicare bundled payments initiative for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), there has been a move by many institutions to further streamline costs associated with the entire operative and perioperative process. One of these cost-saving strategies has been to favor discharging patients to home with outpatient services as opposed to discharging to the relatively more expensive rehabilitation facilities. Our aim was to determine the success of a teaching institute's initiative in discharging pat...

Provider Preference in Exam Room Layout Design and Computing.

 The introduction of the electronic health record (EHR) has had a significant impact on provider-patient interactions, particularly revolving around patient-centeredness. More research is needed to understand the provider perspective of this interaction.

Effects of pair-housing on voluntary alcohol intake in male and female Wistar rats.

A number of different voluntary alcohol intake paradigms are available for home cage drinking studies. Traditionally these paradigms involve single housing in order for individual intake to be measured. This study aimed at investigating the effects of pair-housing on voluntary alcohol intake. Male and female Wistar rats were housed in pairs or individually for studies of voluntary alcohol intake using the modified intermittent access paradigm with alcohol access during three consecutive days per week follow...

Female finches prefer courtship signals indicating male vigor and neuromuscular ability.

Female songbirds use male song to discriminate among individuals and evaluate their quality as potential mates. Previous behavioral experiments in many species, including the species studied here, have shown that females will solicit copulation in response to song even if no male is present. Those data demonstrate that female mate choice is closely tied to song features, but they leave open the question of which song parameters are most influential in female mate selection. We sought to identify features of...

Role of the treatment environment in the effects of aripiprazole on ethanol-induced behavioral sensitization and conditioned place preference in female mice.

Evidence suggests that aripiprazole, a partial dopamine D2 and serotonin 5-HT1A receptor agonist and 5-HT2A receptor antagonist, show significant efficacy in reducing alcohol use. We have previously demonstrated that treatment with aripiprazole blocked the reinstatement of cocaine-induced behavioral sensitization in a context-dependent manner, suggesting that the treatment environment may modulate the therapeutic effects of aripiprazole. The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of treatment with arip...

Involvement of ventral pallidal vasopressin in the sex-specific regulation of sociosexual motivation in rats.

The ventral pallidum (VP) is a critical node of the mesocorticolimbic reward circuit and is known to modulate social behaviors in rodents. Arginine vasopressin (AVP) signaling via the V1A receptor (V1AR) within the VP is necessary for the expression of socially motivated affiliative behaviors in monogamous voles. However, whether the VP-AVP system regulates socially motivated behaviors in non-monogamous species remains unknown. Here, we determined the extent of AVP fiber innervation in the VP as well as the...

Acquired thrombotic-thrombocytopenic purpura - patient management with the advent of novel therapeutic agents.

 A 42-year-old female patient presented with pyelonephritis. Two days later she complained of hematomas and petechia of the extremities.

Preference Consistency: Veteran and Non-Veteran Nursing Home Resident Self-Reported Preferences for Everyday Living.

Understanding patient preferences is core to person-centered care. The consistency of everyday preference reporting was assessed comparing responses of Veteran (VA) and non-VA nursing home (NH) residents on the Preferences for Everyday Living Inventory (PELI) at baseline and 5 to 7 days later. Non-VA NH residents demonstrated higher perfect agreement than VA residents (66% vs. 56%, respectively) and higher acceptable agreement (95% vs. 88%, respectively). Multiple regression analyses examined significant pr...

Office-based anesthesia: an update on safety and outcomes (2017-2019).

Although both cost and patient preference tend to favor the office-based setting, one must consider the hidden costs in managing complications and readmissions. The purpose of this review is to provide an update on safety outcomes of office-based procedures, as well as to identify common patient-specific factors that influence the decision for office-based surgery or impact patient outcomes.

Murine model of OPRM1 A118G alters oxycodone self-administration and locomotor activation, but not conditioned place preference.

Mu-opioid receptors (MORs) mediate the rewarding properties of oxycodone and other prescription opioid medications, which have played a central role in the current opioid epidemic in the United States. The human mu-opioid receptor gene (OPRM1) contains a functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), A118G, which has been associated with altered opioid addiction risk, however the mechanisms responsible for this are not well understood. To explore this, we examined oxycodone conditioned place preference (C...

Liver and skeletal muscle injury in a 12-year-old female patient after scoliosis correction in prone position: a case report.

We report the case of a 12-year-old female, otherwise healthy patient, who underwent surgery for scoliosis correction in prone position under total intravenous general anesthesia, with CardioQ and sensory-motor-evoked potentials for hemodynamic and neurological monitoring. The patient showed severe intraoperative hypotension, lactic acidosis, and complete abolition of motor-evoked potentials during the positioning of posterior corrective bars. During the postoperative period, the increase in muscle and live...

Effects of Preference on Outcomes of Preventive Interventions among Ethnically Diverse Adolescents At-Risk of Depression.

Patient-centered care includes efforts to align treatment with patient preferences to improve outcomes and has not been studied in adolescent depression prevention. Within a school-based randomized trial, we examined the effects of offering a preference between two evidence-based preventive interventions for youth at risk of depression, Learning to BREATHE (L2B) and Interpersonal Therapy-Adolescent Skills Training. We examined the effects of 3 preference factors (assignment condition [preference vs. random]...

Uveal Metastasis Based on Patient Sex in 2214 Tumors of 1111 Patients. A Comparison of Female Versus Male Clinical Features and Outcomes.

Lacking in previous studies on uveal metastasis is a robust statistical comparison of patient demographics, tumor features, and overall survival based on patient sex.

The bladder is an unreliable witness: The case for urodynamic investigations in female stress urinary incontinence.

For some years, the role of urodynamics (UDS) in female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has been a topic of intense debate. The findings of the VaLUE and VUSIS-II randomised clinical trials (RCTs) published in 2012 appeared to suggest that UDS is not useful in women with uncomplicated SUI, with the result that several authoritative guidelines were amended and the routine use of UDS in this setting fell sharply. However, many experts have raised concerns about the design of these two RCTs and their subsequ...
