Seasonal Work and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Farmers.
CONCLUSIONS: Farmers in this study were physically active, ate consistent diets, and reported high health status ratings throughout the year. Cardiovascular disease risk was positively correlated with age and body mass index (P
AbstractEndometriosis is a gynecological condition affecting 10% of women in reproductive age. High rates of depression and anxiety are observed in these patients. The mechanisms underlying endometriosis-induced behavioral alterations are still elusive. Animal models provide a useful tool to study the temporal sequence and biological pathways involved in this disease and comorbid states. Here, we sought to characterize time-related behavioral alterations in rats submitted to endometriosis model (EM) induced by peritoneal auto-transplantation of uterine tissues weekly for three weeks. Corticosterone stress reactivity, oxida...
“Be proactive not reactive, for an apparently insignificant issue ignored today can spawn tomorrow’s catastrophe.” – Ken Poirot Do you ever have one of those mornings where the battle against annoying minutiae begins before you’re even truly awake? One of those days where you feel the illusion of control fully slipping away. You try to grasp and pull it back, but you really have no control over this day or its outcome, at all. We dread these types of days, don’t we? The control freak in me gets uncomfortable thinking about it. Even the Meet The Parents movies make me unsettled, because a...
This study demonstrates the potential of optional therapist support to meet the needs and preferences of patients and to also reduce therapist costs in routine care.
ConclusionsPE and RT are well-tolerated, feasible, and effective for older adults, though treatment gains were not maintained at follow-up.
ConclusionsOur results provide evidence that PROMIS-57 and PROMIS-29 are highly reliable and valid instruments among kidney transplant recipients. We propose it as a valuable tool to assess important domains of the illness experience.
ConclusionBased on our findings, the instrument can be used, albeit with caution, for comparing depression and anxiety scores between male and female adolescents as well as child self-reports and parent proxy-reports.
ConclusionsThis study has identified potential targets for interventions to improve QoL in the oldest old. Further research should address causal pathways between QoL and functional and mood decline, perceived health and loneliness.
ConclusionsCancer survivors in rural China have deteriorated HRQoL, and a substantial number of survivors have pain/discomfort problems. Our study provides detailed data on HRQoL of rural cancer survivors for future supportive and survivorship care in China.

These symptoms might be linked to dysfunction in core neurocognitive networks subserving self-referential mental processing (default mode network, DMN), detection of salient stimuli (salience network, SN) and c...
