Longer-Term Impact of High and Low Temperature on Mortality: An International Study to Clarify Length of Mortality Displacement

Conclusions: These results provide strong evidence that most deaths associated in daily analyses with heat and cold are displaced by at least 1 y. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1756 Received: 10 February 2017 Revised: 25 September 2017 Accepted: 26 September 2017 Published: 27 October 2017 Address correspondence to B.

CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that careful clinical history taking to document specific neurodevelopmental features may be informative in screening for individuals with schizophrenia who are at higher risk of carrying known SCZ-associated CNVs. Identification of genomic disorders in these individuals is likely to have clinical benefits similar to those demonstrated for other neurodevelopmental disorders.

ConclusionsThese observations suggest that SYD is effective in the enhancement of antioxidant ability via activation of Nrf2 pathway and the up-regulation of Nrf2-downstream phase II enzymes expression. The anti-inflammation and antioxidant action of SYD together contributes to the prevention and treatment of ulcerrelated colorectal cancer.Graphical abstract

This study aimed to develop a novel scale, predicting the need for Delayed Intubation after inhalation injury (PDI) score.MethodsWe retrospectively identified patients with inhalation injury at four tertiary care centers in Japan between 2012 and 2018. We included patients aged 15 or older and excluded those intubated within 30 min after hospital arrival. Predictors for delayed intubation were identified with univariate analyses and scored on the basis of odds ratios. The PDI score was evaluated with the area under the receiver operating characteristic (AUROC) curve and compared with other scaling systems for burn injuries...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Research in Developmental Disabilities, Volume 98Author(s): Yael Barak-Levy, Na'ama Atzaba-PoriaAbstractIn accordance with the determinant of parenting model (Belsky, 1984), a conceptual model is proposed in which parental stress mediates the links between child, proximal, and distal risk factors and parental behavior. Participants were 156 families with children aged 4–7 years (M = 5.64 years, SD = 0.62; 59 % boys); research group: 75 two-parent families having children with mild intellectual disability (MID); control group: 81 two-parent families with typically developed ...

Conclusions: Hyperuricemia and hypertension may have a synergistic interaction towards renal function loss in addition to their independent impacts. Our findings may provide a straightforward illustration which is easy for the public to realize the hazard of coexistent hypertension and hyperuricemia on renal injury.

Within its guidelines for influenza pandemic plans, WHO has developed a framework of detailed ethical considerations in order to ensure that overall concerns (such as protecting human rights and the special needs of vulnerable and minority groups) are addressed in pandemic influenza planning and response. Experts from the EU Science-in-society funded ASSET project performed a semantic analysis of national pandemic plans published on ECDC website. The analysis was based on two keyword lists: one represent areas of possible ethical interest; a second related to ethical issues actually addressed in each national pandemic plan...
