ConclusionAvailable data suggest that the information needs of people with low back pain are centred around their desire for a diagnosis, potentially contributing to expectations for and overuse of imaging. People with low back pain expressed a strong desire for clear, consistent and personalised information on prognosis, treatment options and self-management strategies, related to healthcare and occupational issues. To correct unhelpful beliefs and optimise delivery of evidence-based therapy, patient and healthcare professional education (potentially by an integrated public health approach) may be warranted.

Publication date: Available online 19 June 2019Source: Polymer TestingAuthor(s): Bo Wang, Lijuan Sun, Bing PanAbstractAs a new manufacturing technology, 3D printing is gradually attracting more interest in both the academic community and the industrial field. To realize its full potential in engineering applications, it is necessary to characterize the mechanical behaviors and properties of 3D printed materials and structures under external loading. Although surface deformation of 3D printed materials has been extensively investigated, the 3D internal deformation measurement and further mechanical analysis using digital vo...

Abstract The present study explores the longitudinal development between Grade 3 word level reading skills and higher level semantic skills to Grade 10 reading comprehension for 3,157 students. In particular, this work focused on how the developmental relations varied for subsamples of students who are English learners (EL; N = 308), students identified as specific learning disability (SLD; N = 133), and general education (Gen Ed; N = 2,716) students who have no formal classification or diagnoses. Multiple group structural equation modeling showed that the relation between Grade 3 vocabulary and Grade 10 reading c...

A 67-year-old woman with a history of metastatic melanoma on therapy presented to the oncology clinic with worsening fatigue for 2 weeks. She had subjective fevers, chills, and a pruritic rash. Her melanoma had progressed on pembrolizumab and so she had recently been started on combination therapy with ipilimumab and nivolumab about 3 months previously. Because of concerns for disease progression, she underwent a positron emission tomography –computed tomography (PET-CT) before being seen in the clinic.

Intestinal regulation of oxalate absorption is a complex mechanism, not exclusively reliant on the oxalate-degrading anaerobe Oxalobacter formigenes. Using metagenomics, Miller et  al. were able to describe a network of bacterial taxa co-occurring with Oxalobacter formigenes in fecal samples from non–stone forming controls and less represented in stone formers. These findings may help to illuminate why previous intervention studies with probiotics have failed to reduce the risk of hyperoxaluria, opening new possibilities for future research.
