Authors: Heissel A, Pietrek A, Rapp MA, Heinzel S, Williams G Abstract The role of perceived need support from exercise professionals in improving mental health was examined in a sample of older adults, thereby validating the short Health Care Climate Questionnaire. A total of 491 older people (M = 72.68 years; SD = 5.47) attending a health exercise program participated in this study. Cronbach's alpha was found to be high (α = .90). Satisfaction with the exercise professional correlated moderately with the short Health Care Climate Questionnaire mean value (r = .38; p

In conclusion, BR echogenic signal alterations in TCS can be a biomarker for depression in epilepsy, but it might not be associated with epilepsy itself. The alterations of SN echogenic area and TV width in TCS may reflect a potential role of SN and diencephalon structure in the pathogenesis of epilepsy, which needs to be further elucidated.

Conclusions: Alcohol use was prevalent and under-reported among pregnant WLWH in South Africa and Uganda, similar to nonpregnant participants, and associated with depression. General health care and antenatal clinic settings present opportunities to provide integrated alcohol-based counseling and depression treatment.

It is warranted to design programs, including family interventions, peer-support groups, and community programs, to help the rural elderly improve activities of daily living and obtain the social support they need to prevent suicidal behaviors.

The presence of comorbid anxiety symptoms does not appear to predict the likelihood that older patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) will respond to the antidepressant venlafaxine, according to astudy inDepression&Anxiety.“[R]emission of depression was just as likely in more and less anxious participants,” Yasmina M. Saade, M.D., of Washington University in St. Louis and colleagues wrote.Previous studies show that older depressed adults with comorbid anxiety often have more severe depression symptoms and cognitive decline and are at greater risk of suicide compared with older depressed adults withou...

Conclusion: The study shows that nearly half of the T2DM patients that exhibited low level of functional health literacy had low diabetes self-management.  Our findings also show that gender significantly affects diabetes self-management in which odds are a lot higher among females than males with diabetes self-management. This study underscores the importance of proper counselling and education about diabetes control on both patients and family members. PMID: 31707414 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: Biosensors and BioelectronicsAuthor(s): Leixia Meng, Ke Xiao, Xiaohua Zhang, Cuicui Du, Jinhua ChenAbstractDNA methylation catalyzed by M.SssI methyltransferases (MTase) has important roles in gene expression and other cellular activities, and relates to some diseases, especially cancers. Therefore, it is important to develop a sensitive sensing platform for M.SssI MTase activity assay. Here, taking zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) polyhedra as the carriers of graphene quantum dots (GQDs), GQDs-embedded ZIF-8 polyhedra (denoted as GQDs@ZIF-8 polyhedra) were...
