This study was conducted from October 2018 to May 2019 and used a cross-sectional design. Based on literature reviews and results of focus groups, a 28-item role strain scale was developed and administered to 519 women with diabetes in Taiwan. Item analysis, exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, concurrent validity, and reliability testing were used to examine the psychometric characteristics of the scale. Results A 9-item role strain scale including subscales for role guilt and role conflict, supported by exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis, was produced. High role strain s...

AbstractAims/hypothesisCardiovascular risk in diabetes is at least in part attributable to defective angiogenesis. Since diabetes negatively affects blood cells involved in angiogenesis, we herein evaluated whether diabetes impairs proangiogenic granulocytes (PAGs).MethodsWe characterised and quantified PAGs as CD49d+ granulocytes in peripheral blood of participants with type 2 or type 1 diabetes and in non-diabetic control participants. We evaluated PAG antigenic profile and assessed in vitro functional properties of CD49d+ granulocytes using 2D and 3D angiogenesis assays. We also quantified PAGs before and after glucose ...

In 2011, Ginther et al. first demonstrated that African American and Black applicants to the National Institutes of Health received grant awards at a lower rate than their white counterparts (Ginther 2011). Since then, multiple studies have reproduced and extended this finding (Ginther 2011; Ginther 2016; Hoppe 2019; Erosheva 2020). Recently we reported that African American and Black (AAB) PIs are more likely to propose research on topics that are less likely to be funded (Hoppe 2019). We found that topic choice has little or no effect on whether an application is chosen for discussion, but after consideri...
