Multimorbidity and mortality risk in hospitalized adults with chronic inflammatory skin disease in the United States

AbstractChronic inflammatory skin diseases (CISD) represent a significant burden of skin disease in the United States, and a growing number of studies demonstrate that CISD are associated with multiple comorbidities. However, few studies examined multimorbidity in adults with CISD. We sought to determine whether hospitalized US adults with chronic inflammatory skin disorders have increased multi-morbidity and mortality risk. Data from the 2002 –2012 Nationwide Inpatient Sample were analyzed, including a representative 20% sample of US hospitalizations. Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) and mean estimated 10-year survival were calculated. Multivariable linear regression models were constructed with CCI score and mean estimated 10-year sur vival as the dependent variables and chronic inflammatory skin diagnosis, age and sex as the independent variables. CCI scores were significantly higher in bullous pemphigoid (P = 0.0005) and dermatomyositis (P

Chauncey DeVega interviews Steve Hassan, a cult expert with personal experience. (He was a Moonie.) It's definitely worth your while to read the whole thing. He explains how cults of personality work and why Trump cultists are impervious to facts or logic. For those of us on the outside, it seems incomprehensible how this repulsive, stupid, malicious, narcissistic pathological liar, bully and coward can possibly attract the admiration of anyone or find anyone to believe the constant flow of bullshit out of his mouth. To Hassan, it seems, it's no mystery. I'll give you a taste, but you have to read it.Donald Trump fits the ...

Christopher A. PrebleAs the United States struggles to contain the coronavirus outbreak, it has revivedthe perennial guns versus butter debate. Or, in this case, guns versus medical equipment. Might some of the money spent on the U.S. military have been better spent on more useful things closer to home? Might a few million additional N ‑95 masks have protected more Americans than a few additional M1 Abrams tanks? Might the money spent on even a single F ‑35 fighter plane have saved more lives — in April and May of 2020, at least — if it had been used to buy a few thousand more ventilator...

Male infertility is a common and devastating disease. Despite the advances in the field, we still struggle to identify, diagnose, and treat this condition. Furthermore, the field of reproductive urology trails at least 20 years behind that of female infertility. With 1% of children in the United States now born through in  vitro fertilization and up to 2% to 3% in Europe, some recent high-profile papers highlighting declining sperm counts around the world, and other data linking male infertility to poor individual and familial somatic health, it is vital that we focus our efforts on understanding this disease.

Although infertility is now recognized as a disease by multiple organizations including the World Health Organization and the American Medical Association, private insurance companies rarely include coverage for infertility treatments. In this review, the authors assess the current state of care delivery for male infertility care in the United States. They discuss the scope of male infertility as well as the unique burdens it places on patients and review emerging market forces that could affect the future of care delivery for male infertility.
