ConclusionsFindings suggest that self-harm behavior and psychiatric disorders are associated with increased ED utilization for subsequent chronic disease-related ED utilization. Chronic disease among adolescent psychiatric patients should be attended to, potentially involving new models of clinical follow-up care.

Conclusions: If perceived QOL is used as an indicator of the success of intervention programs, certain factors accompanying the adoption of measures for the prevention of falls may mask the results (failure or success) of the intervention. Because most determinants of QOL are modifiable and physical activity has the potential to improve QOL, this research suggests that physical activity programs should be a component of health care for older adults.

In this study, to estimate the states that are not directly available from the Bergman minimal model a high-order sliding mode observer is proposed. Then fractional calculus is combined with sliding mode control (SMC) for blood glucose regulation to create more robustness performance and make more degree of freedom and flexibility for the proposed method. Then an adaptive fractional-order SMC is proposed. The adaptive SMC protect controller against disturbance and uncertainties while the fractional calculus provides robust performance. Numerical simulation verifies that the proposed controllers have better performance in t...

This paper deals with the design of robust observer based output feedback control law for the stabilisation of an uncertain nonlinear system and subsequently apply the developed method for the regulation of plasma glucose concentration in Type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients. The principal objective behind the proposed design is to deal with the issues of intra-patient parametric variation and non-availability of all state variables for measurement. The proposed control technique for the T1D patient model is based on the attractive ellipsoid method (AEM). The observer and controller conditions are obtained in terms of linear mat...

[Guardian] Researchers are unanimous that talc or talcum powder can cause lung, ovarian, stomach and endometrial (uterine) cancers. They said talc consisting of asbestos is generally accepted as being able to cause cancer if it is inhaled or/and used regularly in the genital area. Evidence on asbestos-free talc is however less clear.

Could a simple blood test catch cancer before symptoms appear?Nicola Davis goes beyond the hype and investigates the future of blood diagnostics and cancerA blood test that could detect cancer earlier than current methods has long been a dream of oncologists. The hope is that these “liquid biopsies” could save countless lives by diagnosing cancer before symptoms show. They’re less invasive, quicker and easier than what is available now.However, this area of research has been plagued with hype. This happened most notably when a Silicon Valley startup –Theranos– allegedlyduped investors out of h...

The Growing Toll of Our Ever-Expanding WaistlinesBy  JANE E. BRODY NOV. 13, 2017Paul Rogers I hope you ’re not chomping on a bagel or, worse, a doughnut while you read about what is probably the most serious public health irony of the last half century in this country: As one major killer — smoking — declined, another rose precipitously to take its place: obesity.Many cancer deaths were averted after millions quit lighting up, but they are now rising because even greater numbers are unable to keep their waistlines in check.Today, obesity and smoking remain the two leading causes of pre...

Conclusions/interpretationDiabetes was associated with a 26% increased risk of death from any cancer in Asians. The pattern of associations with specific cancers suggests the need for better control (prevention, detection, management) of the growing epidemic of diabetes (as well as obesity), in order to reduce cancer mortality.

Introduction: It is estimated that by 2030 pancreatic cancer will be the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. Currently, only 9% of newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer is localized and 5-year survival is 7%. Due to most pancreatic cancers (PC) presenting at a later stage with poor overall survival, early detection methods must be implemented to improve treatment outcomes. Yet, effective early screening guidelines do not exist for pancreatic cancer. Our Early Detection Program (EDP) provides personalized early detection including risk assessment, screening, and genetic testing. We aim to evaluate risk assessment c...

The obesity epidemic continues to dominate headlines--and for good reason. Obesity is a leading cause of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and stroke. Many of these conditions occur in adults but often begin in childhood. This September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. By knowing the facts and taking steps to help your children live a healthier lifestyle, childhood obesity and its resulting complications may be prevented. The Facts According to the Centers for Disease Control &Prevention (CDC), one in three children in the U.S. is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity doubled in children a...
