CONCLUSIONS: Although adults with WRA were more likely to have received asthma self-management education, results suggest missed opportunities to provide asthma self-management education. Every healthcare visit should be used as an opportunity to discuss asthma self-management. PMID: 31001992 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsLack of social responsibility, inadequate awareness of food risks, pursuit of short-term economic benefits and poor processing technology are the root causes of food safety incidents in China. Based on the analysis of food safety regulation system in China and comparison with the systems in other developed counties. The authors proposed two suggestions. The first suggestion is to reform food safety system, such as formulating food safety laws, enforcing social supervision and so on. The other suggestion is to encourage small and medium food companies to implement product and system certifications.

ConclusionsIn the US, 1.1% of all ED visits for dog bites are due to K-9 intervention with no change in incidence, even though this study spanned the time when it was encouraged to change K-9 intervention; from “find and bite” to “find and bark”. The K-9 dog bite patient is nearly always male, more commonly Black, occurred away from home, and has a 3.7% hospital admission rate. Bites to the head/neck are less common compared to the non K-9 dog bite group.

Authors: Shrader MW, Wimberly L, Thompson R Abstract Hip dysplasia is common in children with cerebral palsy (CP), especially in those children with notable functional impairment. Severity of hip dysplasia has been shown to correlate with higher Gross Motor Function Classification System levels. Migration percentage measured on AP pelvis radiographs is the key radiographic measure quantifying hip displacement in CP. Hip surveillance programs for children with CP exist in Europe, Australia, and parts of Canada and have been adopted as standard of care. These programs have demonstrated improved detection of hip sublu...

Authors: Li J, Zhang Y, Shen Y, Yao J, Grinspan Z Abstract Limited research exists on the influence of top-ranked medical schools on students' speciality choice. We surveyed medical students (n = 468) at eight medical schools in the United States including two ranked in the top 10. Significance tests and logistic regressions were used to determine the relationship between school ranking and preferences for various speciality attributes. An analysis was conducted separately for students in lower (1st and 2nd) years versus higher (3rd and 4th) years of medical school. Among students in lower years, speciality prefere...

Boiss is one of the most important endemic medicinal plants in Iran, which has three main terpenoid compounds including ferutinin, stylosin and tschimgine. Ferutinin is the strongest natural phytoestrogen that has agonistic activity on estrogen receptors, particularly α-receptors. To determine the amount of ferutinin in F. ovina roots, we firstly used HPLC-UV method. In the HPLC method, the resolution of ferutini...
