FreimuthAbstractVaccine confidence depends on trust in vaccines as products and trust in the system that produces them. In the US, this system consists of a complex network connecting pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, and the healthcare system. We explore narratives from White and African American adults describing their trust in these institutions, with a focus on influenza vaccine. Our data were collected between 2012 and 2014 as part of a mixed-methods investigat...

Authors: Wu Y, Jia K, Wu H, Sang A, Wang L, Shi L, Jiang K, Dong J Abstract Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a severe microvascular complication of diabetes and the primary cause of vision loss in diabetic patients. Previous research has revealed that long non‑coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) play pivotal roles in the pathogenesis of DR. However, the roles of lncRNA‑miRNA‑mRNA interactions in DR are poorly understood. In the present study, we aimed to compute a global triple network of competitive endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) in order to pinpoint essential molecules. We found that there were 802 ...

Melatonin attenuates renal fibrosis in diabetic mice by activating the AMPK/PGC1α signaling pathway and rescuing mitochondrial function. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Nov 29;: Authors: Li J, Li N, Yan S, Lu Y, Miao X, Gu Z, Shao Y Abstract Mitochondrial homeostasis is a highly regulated process that serves a critical role in the maintenance of renal structure and function. The growing interest in the field of mitochondrial homeostasis promises to provide more information regarding the mechanisms involved in diabetic renal fibrosis, and aid in the development of novel strategies to combat the disease. In the ...

TYPE 2 DIABETES symptoms may not be obvious for many years and can be mistaken for less serious conditions. But recognising all the warning signs is very important because left untreated, life-threatening complications can occur. One sign to be wary of can be evident in your urine.

Conclusions: For 2016, 29 EV-D68–related AFM cases were identified in mostly Western Europe. This is likely an underestimation, because case identification is dependent on awareness among clinicians, adequate viral diagnostics on respiratory samples and the capability of laboratories to type EVs.

As an observer, it can be difficult to find out what ’s happening with value-based contracts (VBCs). The fanfare that accompanies the announcement of a deal invariably gives way to a long period of silence, a good sign if you subscribe to the mantra that no news is good news, but if you don’t, there is cause for concern.The smattering of reports on the topic suggest that green shoots are emerging. A recent survey of 120 payers conducted by the ORC International and commissioned by Change Healthcare, found that payers reported an average saving in medical costs of 5.6% from VBC strategies with an accompanying 77...

The national health impact could be substantial, preventing more than 190,000 cases of diabetes and 16,000 cases of cancerWe don ’t often equate the kilojoules we drink in our glass of wine or pint of beer with the weight that accumulates around our middle. Butour new study shows increasing the price of alcohol is the foremost value-for-money policy option to prevent obesity in Australia.The study, released today, shows if we increase alcohol taxes by standardising them across different types of alcohol, overall alcohol consumption would go down. This would lead to substantial reductions in the kilojoules Australians...

AbstractIn a study of 199 couples in which one person had type 1 diabetes, we examined how patient appraisal of the diabetes as shared versus individual was associated with collaborative, supportive and unsupportive behavior and whether patient shared illness appraisal was most beneficial for health when it occurred in the context of supportive behavior. We assessed illness appraisal among patients with type 1 diabetes and their partners and had patients complete relationship and health measures. Results showed partners were more likely than patients to hold shared illness appraisals. Patients ’ shared appraisals wer...
