CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence of smoking and illicit drug use were high among adolescent boys. This study confirmed the association between adolescents' smoking and substance use with psychosocial context, and suicidal behaviors. Addressing these predictors would be crucial in the development of effective strategies targeting the prevention of smoking and substance use, which might consequently reduce suicidal behaviors among adolescents.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo provide an overview of the mechanistic and epidemiologic evidence linking sleep-related exposures, such as short sleep duration, obstructive sleep apnea, shift work, and insomnia, with type 2 diabetes risk in adults.Recent FindingsBoth poor sleep habits and sleep disorders are highly prevalent among adults with type 2 diabetes. In observational studies, short sleep duration, obstructive sleep apnea, shift work, and insomnia are all associated with higher risk of incident type 2 diabetes and may predict worse outcomes in those with existing diabetes. However, interventional studies addressing sle...

Originally described in 1923 by Pierre Robin, Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is a condition characterized by a triad consisting of micrognathia, glossoptosis and breathing problems due to obstruction of the upper airway [1]. The prevalence of PRS is highly variable and reported to be between 1 in 2000 to 1 in 30,000 [2]. PRS can be found as isolated disease or in association with other syndromes such as Stickler sundrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Monosomy 22q11 or DiGeorge Syndrome [3]. Although the strong concurrence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and PRS has been known, no previous study has reported other sleep problems and ...
