However, the cell quality varies and cell number is limited as both depend on donations. Moreover, dissociated MSC delivered to an inflammatory lesion are subject to challenges to their survival and functions. Here we demonstrate that dropping of spheres of MSC derived from human embryonic ...

e M Abstract Body Dysmorphic Disorder: Diagnosis, Treatment and Challenges in the General Practice Abstract. Body dysmorphic disorder (point prevalence: 1.7-2.4 %) is characterized by excessive preoccupation with one or more subjectively perceived blemishes of the appearance, as a result of which those affected show a high burden of disease due to avoidance behavior and time-consuming rituals, and often secondary problems (including depression, suicidal tendencies). The disorder is often accompanied by pronounced shame and is therefore associated with challenges in diagnostics, which is why the indication and spec...

Purpose of review In recent years there has been interest in the use of machine learning in suicide research in reaction to the failure of traditional statistical methods to produce clinically useful models of future suicide. The current review summarizes recent prediction studies in the suicide literature including those using machine learning approaches to understand what value these novel approaches add. Recent findings Studies using machine learning to predict suicide deaths report area under the curve that are only modestly greater than, and sensitivities that are equal to, those reported in studies using more co...

I had an idyllic childhood. I was a cheery kid with great parents, raised in a wonderful neighborhood, always cared for and never wanted for anything. When people hear this background from someone whose addiction was so strong that they planned their methamphetamine use around their pregnancy, it can be hard to reconcile. There is no blueprint for addiction; this disease has no face. Not one person in my life would have guessed I’d be homeless with multiple DUIs, totaled a number of vehicles, and would have my son taken away by authorities twice before his second birthday, but it happened. And despite how absurd it m...
