A Rare Case of Gingival Cyst in a Child
The Oncologist, Nurse, and Patient Partnership in AML: Multiple Perspectives on Integrating Targeted Therapy Into Care
CONCLUSION: The NGT exercise resulted in 21 candidate SLE classification criteria. The next phases of SLE classification criteria development will require refinement of criteria definitions, evaluation of the ability to cluster criteria into domains and evaluation of weighting of criteria.

CONCLUSION: One-third of patients with refractory anti-HMGCR had improved strength or other evidence of improved disease activity following RTX treatment. PMID: 30554155 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: At OMERACT 2018, PsAID12 was the first patient-reported outcome measure provisionally endorsed as a core outcome measure for disease-specific HRQOL in PsA clinical trials. PsAID12 discrimination and improvement thresholds will be studied in future RCT. PMID: 30554154 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: CDUS showed adequate diagnostic properties for detection of sacroiliitis and is a useful tool in patients with IBP. PMID: 30554153 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: TOMS longitudinal reliability was moderate-good. Limited change hampered assessment. PMID: 30554152 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: van Roon AM, Huisman CC, van Roon AM, Zhang D, Stel AJ, Smit AJ, Bootsma H, Mulder DJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the presence of a systemic sclerosis (SSc) pattern on nailfold capillary microscopy (NCM) in patients with Raynaud phenomenon (RP) and to explore its association with abnormal pulmonary function tests (PFT). METHODS: NCM patterns were assessed in 759 consecutive patients with RP. Patterns were classified as normal (n = 354), nonspecific (n = 159), or SSc pattern (n = 246). Abnormal PFT was defined as forced vital or diffusion capacity
We examined the conjecture that a similar trend of increasing effect of genes/declining family environmental effect characterizes other status-related outcomes when arranged in typical age-graded sequence over adolescence and early adulthood. We used DeFries-Fulker (1985) (DF) analysis with longitudinal data on 1576 pairs of variously-related young adult siblings (MZ twins; DZ twins; full siblings; half siblings; cousins; and nonrelated siblings; mean age 28) to estimate univariate quantitative genetic decompositions for fifteen status-related outcomes roughly ordered along the early life course: Verbal IQ, High school GPA...
Publication date: January 2019Source: Learning and Individual Differences, Volume 69Author(s): Kelsey K. Will, Andalusia Masad, Haley A. Vlach, Panayiota KendeouAbstractThe aim of the present study was to examine the effect of refutation texts on generating explanations and explore individual differences in quality of explanations. Seventy-five undergraduates read refutation and non-refutation texts addressing common scientific misconceptions and completed a two-tier post-test including True/False and open-ended questions. Readers' written post-test explanations were coded on accuracy and quality dimensions. The analysis o...
We describe the properties of a constraint satisfaction network that is able to reason and decide rationally in strategic games. We use the structure of Bidirectional Associative Memory (BAM), a minimal two-layer recurrent neural network, and assume that network layers represent self and other strategies, whereas connection weights encode best responses. We apply BAM to finite-strategy two-player games, and show that network activation in the long run is restricted to the set of rationalizable strategies. The network is not guaranteed to reach a stable activation state, but any pure strategy profile that constitutes a stab...
