In this study, we asked people in an open-ended way about their desire for longer life: Would you like to have more time? What age would you like to become? This was something more specific than asking about a preference for survival without reference to any length of time; about one's plans for the future; or whether people see the future as open or limited, as in studies of future time perspective. Our attempt was to discover whether there were preferred temporal spans with which older adults framed their futures and plans. The two-question series about extra years and desired age ("How old would you like to ...

Authors: Phillips PK, Caldis MW, Hristov AD, Lee AS, Lucey MR Abstract The manufacture and consumption of alcohol are ubiquitous and as old as time.

Liver transplantation (LT) remains the treatment of last resort for life-threatening liver disease. LT...

Authors: Li Q, Li X, Deng CL Abstract OBJECTIVE: To further investigate the occurrence mechanism of diabetic hepatic fibrosis through observing the effects of insulin and glucose in different concentrations on hepatic stellate cell (HSC) proliferation, and mRNA expressions of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1) in rats, so as to provide a theoretical and experimental basis for the occurrence, prevention and treatment of diabetic hepatic fibrosis (HF). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The HSCs in rats were cultured in vitro with high glucose alone and high ...

CONCLUSIONS: MNA-SF can be used for the nutritional screening of high-risk stroke groups in community. For the high-risk stroke groups in community, the rational nutritional diet should be publicized, blood sugar should be controlled in a scientific manner and physical exercise should be moderately increased.

ConclusionsThe results provide the first indication that PTPN2 variants contribute to the risk of Type 1A diabetes, independently of known risk SNPs. PTPN2 coding variants possibly induce non‐specific Type 1A diabetes phenotypes in individuals with human leukocyte antigen‐mediated disease susceptibility. Our findings warrant further validation.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Conclusions: Reward-dependence and self-transcendence scores were significantly lower in patients with MOH than in those with EM. These results suggest that people with lower reward-dependence and self-transcendence scores may not adequately respond to prescribed medications, leading them to the frequent use of multiple drugs at higher doses. A multidisciplinary approach to management may be suggested for migraine patients, and it is reasonable to consider behavioral therapy in conjunction with pharmacotherapy to ameliorate comorbid conditions.
