Analysis of Temporal Variability in the Short-term Effects of Ambient Air Pollutants on Nonaccidental Mortality in Rome, Italy (1998 –2014)

Conclusions: Mean concentrations of air pollutants have decreased over the last two decades in Rome, but effect estimates for a fixed increment in each exposure were generally consistent. These findings suggest that there has been little or no change in the overall toxicity of the air pollution mixture over time. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP19 Received: 23 February 2016 Revised: 07 November 2016 Accepted: 07 November 2016 Published: 28 June 2017 Address correspondence to M.

This study investigates the distribution of femoral metastases in cancer patients, specifically addressing the incidence of distal femoral metastases. PET/CT examinations routinely extend only to mid-thigh level, precluding detection of distal metastases. We found a total of 208 femoral metastases in 112 patients. 30% had distal femoral metastases in addition to other areas of involvement. 7% of patients with femoral metastases had only distal femur disease. 6 patients had distal pathologic fractures. Exclusion of the distal femur during PET/CT may result in a missed or delayed diagnosis that could contribute to the develo...

ABSTRACTX ‐linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) is characterized by increased activity of circulating FGF23 resulting in renal phosphate wasting and abnormal bone mineralization. Hyperparathyroidism may develop in XLH patients; however its prevalence, pathogenesis and clinical presentation are not documented.This observational study (CNIL 2171036 v 0) recruited XLH adult patients in a single tertiary referral center. Each patient was explored in standardized conditions and compared with two healthy volunteers, matched for sex, age and 25 ‐OH vitamin D concentrations. The primary endpoint was the proportion of patients with hy...

Authors: Xu H, Dong L, Bin Z, Yansong H, Shaofeng L, Chang L, Chen C, Changli W Abstract Despite the excellent efficacy and low toxicity of photoresponse therapy, which has attracted considerable attention for use in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) therapy, unsatisfactory cellular permeability, and instability, both in vitro and in vivo have limited further clinical applications of indole cyanine photosensitizers. Here, we explore the supramolecular self-assembly of a 'hyalurosome' that is mediated by calcium phosphate nanonuclei. Through hyaluronate-mediated CD44 targeting, the constructed hyalurosome...

Despite the increasing morbidity and mortality of the opioid epidemic, the rates of pain medication use among the urogynecology patient population is not known. Our objective was to describe the baseline prevalence of preoperative opioid and neuropathic pain medication use in patients presenting for urogynecologic surgery and to determine whether this rate changed before and after passage of anti-opioid state legislation.

The Body Image in Pelvic Organ Prolapse questionnaire (BIPOP) is a validated measure to assess body image impact in women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP). BIPOP consists of 10 items and 2 subscales, attractiveness and partner-related. Previously, we demonstrated similarity of body image themes in Latinas with symptomatic POP with those found in BIPOP, which was developed and validated in white women. Our objective was to examine the psychometric properties of a Spanish-translated version of the BIPOP (BIPOP-S) in Spanish-speaking Latinas.

Our objective was to evaluate the utility of concomitant injection of a human plasma derived exosome product (Purified Exosome Product; PEP) during surgical repair of anal sphincter injuries in a porcine model of obstetric anal sphincter injury. We aimed to evaluate the impact on anorectal manometry parameters and wound healing.
