Nonsuicidal self-injury and religiosity: A meta-analytic investigation.

Nonsuicidal self-injury and religiosity: A meta-analytic investigation. Am J Orthopsychiatry. 2019 Mar 14;: Authors: Haney AM Abstract Nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a potentially life-threatening behavior with significant public health implications that may potentiate suicide risk. Religiosity has been identified as a significant protective factor against suicide attempts, and more broadly acts as a buffer against negative mental and physical health outcomes. Whether religiosity may reduce risk for NSSI is unclear. To understand the nature of the association between NSSI and religiosity, correlations from 16 samples (total N = 24,767) were computed to evaluate the magnitude and direction of the association between NSSI and religiosity. Gender, age, location, publication status, and method of religiosity measurement were included as moderators.

It plays critical roles in the development and homeostasis of cardiac tissues. However, excessively stimulated apoptotic activity induced by a myriad of deleterious stimuli can result in too much cardiomyocyte death. The regenerative potential of the adult cardiomyocytes is limited. The cardiomyocyte loss cannot be compensated by efficient cell proliferation. It inevitably leads to various heart diseases. Therefore, the inhibition of cardiomyocyt...
