Screening for Excessive Gambling Behaviors on the Internet

2015-04-16 11:23:21 | BioPortfolio


The Internet medium is particularly vector for gambling problems. Since the opening of the online gambling sector in France, no screening for excessive gambling behaviours is provided for by the law, although it is known that preventive actions are more effective if they are implemented early in the gambler's career.

The investigators propose to develop a model for screening excessive gambling practices based on the gambling behaviours observed on French gambling websites, coupled to a clinical validation. The objective is to lead to early preventive measures directed towards the more vulnerable gamblers and adapted for each type of gambling.

This study will therefore contribute to setting up an innovative measure of prevention, to inform and protect gamblers as early as possible.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The stage in the first meiotic prophase, following ZYGOTENE STAGE, when CROSSING OVER between homologous CHROMOSOMES begins.

The process of TOOTH formation. It is divided into several stages including: the dental lamina stage, the bud stage, the cap stage, and the bell stage. Odontogenesis includes the production of tooth enamel (AMELOGENESIS), dentin (DENTINOGENESIS), and dental cementum (CEMENTOGENESIS).

The earliest developmental stage of a fertilized ovum (ZYGOTE) during which there are several mitotic divisions within the ZONA PELLUCIDA. Each cleavage or segmentation yields two BLASTOMERES of about half size of the parent cell. This cleavage stage generally covers the period up to 16-cell MORULA.

Serologic tests based on inactivation of complement by the antigen-antibody complex (stage 1). Binding of free complement can be visualized by addition of a second antigen-antibody system such as red cells and appropriate red cell antibody (hemolysin) requiring complement for its completion (stage 2). Failure of the red cells to lyse indicates that a specific antigen-antibody reaction has taken place in stage 1. If red cells lyse, free complement is present indicating no antigen-antibody reaction occurred in stage 1.

The immature stage in the life cycle of those orders of insects characterized by gradual metamorphosis, in which the young resemble the imago in general form of body, including compound eyes and external wings; also the 8-legged stage of mites and ticks that follows the first moult.
