Increased Risk Of Sleep Disorder In Children Who Received Swine Flu Vaccine

Results consistent with findings from Finland and Sweden, but may still be overestimated A study published on bmj.com today finds an increased risk of narcolepsy in children and adolescents who received the A/H1N1 2009 influenza vaccine (Pandemrix) during the pandemic in England. The results are consistent with previous studies from Finland and Sweden and indicate that the association is not confined to Scandinavian populations...

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2018Source: Journal of Environmental SciencesAuthor(s): Lin Chen, Chengyi Wang, Shanshan Liu, Liang ZhuAbstractThe adsorption and desorption behavior of Cr(VI) in membrane capacitive deionization (MCDI) was investigated systematically in the presence of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and KCl with different concentrations, respectively. Results revealed that Cr(VI) absorption was enhanced and the adsorption amount for Cr(VI) increased from 155.7 to 190.8 mg/g when KCl concentration increased from 100 to 200 mg/L in the adsorption process, which was attributed to the stronger dr...

Due to differences in brain maturity at time of insult, severity of hypotension and duration of insult, there are four distinct patterns of brain injury. Magnetic resonance imaging is the most sensitive modality for evaluating these patterns of brain injury. Additional role of Diffusion weighted imaging and ADC values can be useful in the ...

In this study we extended the range of stimulation frequencies, using also low and medium stimulation frequencies (4, 6, 8, 12, 20, 40 Hz) and studied their susceptibility to the loss of consciousness in NREM sleep (N2 and N3 stages).Effects of NREM sleep were examined in power domain with relative power (RP), and in phase domain using inter-trial phase coherence (PC) parameter. The activity in power domain was also compared to no-stimulation data. Regions displaying significant waking-NREM sleep differences were selected using non-parametric suprathreshold cluster test. For 4, 6, 20 and 40 Hz stimulation relative powe...

This study aimed to evaluate the intra- and interobserver agreement for fracture classifications of the glenoid, using either plain radiographs, computed tomography (CT) scans. The study was retrospective, using images with a variety of fracture types. Six observers classified the fracture patterns. Classifications of Ideberg, OTAAO, Mayo and Euler/Ruedi were used. Agreement was determined using kappa coefficients. Currently used glenoid fracture classification systems have a fair to moderate intraobserver reliability. Combining plain radiographs and CT scans led to a better observer agreement. For interoberserver reliabil...

In this study, we generated VLPs containing hemagglutinin (HA), neuraminidase (NA) or M1 proteins derived from the A/California/04/09. Mice were immunized intramuscularly with HA-M1, NA-M1 or M1 VLPs and protective immunity was evaluated by assessing lung virus loads against low (5LD50) or high (100LD50) lethal dose of homologous virus challenges. High levels of virus-specific serum IgG antibody responses were induced in mice after HA-M1 VLPs immunization, whereas low or no IgG antibody responses were detected from immunization with NA-M1 VLPs or M1 VLPs, independently. Mice that were immunized with HA-M1 VLPs showed below...

For a well-established product like the hearing aid, the market is a dynamic one with incredible growth opportunities. “There’s only about a 20% penetration in the space,” reported Dave Olson, CEO of Elevated Technologies/Elevated Hearing. “A lot of people can’t afford hearing aids or think wearing them would be unappealing. But there are a lot of forces at work to make them more appealing and affordable.” The market for these devices is growing about 8%, according to market research firm ResearchAndMarkets, whose es...

ConclusionsThe current study indicates that a history of OSAS/CSAS, myocardial infarction and BMI > 30 might be related to ICU admission in influenza patients. Second, ICU patients develop more pulmonary co-infections. Last, (pre-existent) renal failure and diabetes mellitus are more often observed in non-survivors.
