Comparison of the association of risperidone and quetiapine with deteriorating performance in walking and dressing in subjects with Parkinson’s disease: a retrospective cohort study using administrative claims data
This retrospective cohort study was performed to investigate the association between risperidone and deteriorating performance in walking and dressing in subjects with Parkinson’s disease using the Japanese Diagnosis Procedure Combination data. These data include inpatient claims including information from the time of admission to discharge from 89 acute phase National Hospitals in Japan. The data were evaluated by implementing the inverse probability of treatment weighting, using propensity scores estimated from the clinical characteristics of subjects prescribed risperidone or quetiapine. The generalized estimation equation was used to estimate the adjusted risk ratios (aRRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). In total, 304 subjects were eligible for participation, and were hospitalized between April 2012 and March 2017 (108 and 196 for risperidone and quetiapine groups, respectively). The performance of walking deteriorated at discharge, with 22.2% and 10.2% recorded at admission for the risperidone and quetiapine groups (aRR, 1.7; 95% CI, 0.9 to 3.4), respectively. The performance of dressing also deteriorated: 24.1% and 10.7% in the risperidone and quetiapine groups (aRR, 1.9; 95% CI, 1.04 to 3.7), respectively. These results suggest an association between risperidone and deteriorating performance in dressing in subjects with Parkinson’s disease in comparison with quetiapine.
Houston-based Christus Foundation for Healthcare received a $3 million donation to finish construction on its East End clinic. Christus Foundation for Healthcare received the gift from Irving, Texas-based Catholic nonprofit health system Christus Health, according to a Nov. 11 press release.

The clinic is nearly doubling in size — from 4,500…
Authors: Nagy P, Molnar B, Nemes B, Schupbach P, Windisch P Abstract The aim of this case series was the histologic evaluation of guided tissue regeneration utilizing deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) when regenerative surgery was combined with (test) or without (control) early orthodontic tooth movement. Core biopsy samples were harvested from previously defected sites after 9 months. The histologic section showed integration of DBBM particles in newly formed bone in the apical and middle thirds of the defect, while in the coronal part, graft materials were mainly embedded in connective tissues in the contr...
Authors: Al Balbeesi HO, Al Kawari HM, Al Tamimi AS, Al Mubarak I, Al Ibrahim KI, Divakar DD Abstract In the present study, the authors evaluated the association of canine impaction with different skeletal discrepancies in two planes of space (sagittal and vertical). Cephalometric and orthopantomographic radiographic images of 45 patients with one or more impacted canines were used in this retrospective study. Five radiographic morphologic parameters-ANB angle, canine angulation, angle between the Frankfort horizontal plane and the mandibular plane (FH-MP), Wits appraisal analysis, and axial inclination of the maxi...
