In just a blink oft Earth's eye (approximately three decades), obesity has become a global epidemic and an urgent health crisis due to its impact on health services and the loss of human capital. It is not just a crisis for health professionals, health economists, and government officials managing finite resources and considering the economics of premature loss of life and economic productivity: it is a major societal concern that chall...

I’ve struggled with professional identity from time to time, but after completing my PhD thesis looking at how people live well with pain, I’ve developed a new understanding of how occupational therapists add value in this area of practice. Occupational therapists joke that “no-one knows what an occupational therapist does” – and sadly, that’s true. It’s not because what we do isn’t important, it’s because our view of people and the way we work with people differs from most health professions. Occupational therapists don’t treat disease per se, we work with peo...

This study aimed to evaluate patients' satisfaction with their interactions with PIC staff and whether sociodemographic factors, depression and anxiety symptoms were associated with their perceptions of these interactions. In this cross-sectional study, we collected data from 84 patients receiving inpatient care in three psychiatric settings in Sweden. The patients' perceptions of interactions with staff and self-reported degrees of depression and anxiety were evaluated through questionnaires. Overall, patients were satisfied with the patient-staff interaction. However, significantly higher scores were related to staffs' p...

Abstract Sinogastromyzon sichangensis is a hillstream loach endemic to the upper Yangtze River, China. It is unclear whether this fish lives in a very restricted area or may be dispersed over a long distance. In the present study spatial connectivity of populations of S. sichangensis was investigated based on 343 individuals collected from 12 sites of Chishui River and employing 22 microsatellite loci. The results of genetic diversity analysis showed that observed heterozygosity (HO) and polymorphism information content (PIC) ranged from 0.5653 to 0.6999 and 0.8513 to 0.8819, respectively. Population structure ana...

Abstract Sika deer (Cervus nippon) in Japan are classified into southern and northern groups. However, previous studies primarily relied on maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The paternally inherited Y-chromosome is useful for analyzing the contribution of males to the population genetic history of sika deer. In total, approximately 16 kb of partial sequences of four Y-chromosomal genes, Y-linked, sex-determining region Y, DEAD-box helicase 3 Y-linked, and Zinc finger protein Y-linked, were sequenced to investigate intraspecific variation. As a result, we identified nine intronic single nucleotide pol...

The objective of this study was to prepare the liver targeting drug delivery system (TDDS) of artesunate (ART)-loaded polyethylene glycol (PEG)-Poly (D, L-lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) nanoparticles (NPs) modified by glycyrrhetinic acid (GA), and evaluate its in vitro cytotoxicity.Significance: The GA-PEG-PLGA-ART NPs enhanced the in vitro cytotoxicity on HCC cell lines. The development of GA-PEG-PLGA NPs will greatly push the clinical applications of ART as a novel anticancer drug.Methods: The NPs were prepared using solvent evaporation method, and the formulation was optimized through an orthogonal design. In addition,...

Authors: Kato M, Sugimoto A, Atsumi T Abstract INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), also referred to as group 1 pulmonary hypertension, occurs either primarily or in association with other diseases such as connective tissue diseases (CTD). Of CTD, systemic sclerosis (SSc), systemic lupus erythematosus and mixed connective tissue disease are commonly accompanied with PAH. It is of note that SSc-PAH is associated with distinctive histopathology, an unfavorable outcome, and a blunted responsiveness to modern PAH therapies. AREAS COVERED: The data in articles published until May 2020 in peer-reviewe...
