As undiagnosed and untreated hypertension is one of the largest drivers of cardiovascular disease in sub-Saharan Africa approaches are needed to optimize the hypertension care cascade. The HIV treatment platform in low and middle income countries provides a robust, scalable foundation to address other chronic care priorities, such as hypertension. This proposal will evaluate an evidence-based intervention designed to improve chronic care services (the Systems Analysis and Improvement Approach (SAIA)) for hypertension detection and management in people living with HIV, and will build evidence on how to achieve rapid, sustainable and scalable improvements in services that can dramatically improve population health in resource-limited countries.

Arterial hypertension (AHT) is responsible for important morbidity and mortality. The cardiac repercussion of AHT is usually assessed by electrocardiography and echocardiography, time-cons...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the benefit of interventricular (V-V) delay optimization in reducing the non-responder rate in patients with cardiac resynchronization defibrillator...
After the implantation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), many patients continue to experience exercise intolerance. LVAD echo guided optimization (EO) determines a more favorable...
Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women in sub-Saharan Africa, and the majority of cervical cancer mortality occur in low and middle income countries (LMICs). Many of the dispar...
This paper addresses task assignment (TA) for multivehicle systems. Multivehicle TA problems are formulated as a combinatorial optimization problem and further as a global optimization problem. To ful...
Clinical presentations associated with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) at rest are highly similar. Differentiating between CTEPH and PAH...
Pediatric hypertension is increasing in incidence, but remains greatly underrecognized, despite its severe long-term health consequences. Often discovered as incidental to another complaint, pediatric...
Oryeong-san (ORS) is a traditional formula that has long been used for the treatment of dysfunctions of body fluids and electrolyte homeostasis in Korea, China and Japan. Recent reports have shown tha...

Comprehensive, methodical analysis of complex biological systems by monitoring responses to perturbations of biological processes. Large scale, computerized collection and analysis of the data are used to develop and test models of biological systems.
An integrated professional approach to screening, evaluation, control, and reduction of abnormal WEIGHT GAIN.
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
A precursor of noradrenaline that is used in the treatment of parkinsonism. The racemic form (DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine) has also been used, and has been investigated in the treatment of orthostatic hypotension. There is a deficit of noradrenaline as well as of dopamine in Parkinson's disease and it has been proposed that this underlies the sudden transient freezing seen usually in advanced disease. Administration of DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine has been claimed to result in an improvement in this phenomenon but controlled studies have failed to demonstrate improvement.
