What are scal­able best prac­tices to spread smart health?

What are scal­able best prac­tices to spread smart health? from SharpBrains: Tracking Brain Health Innovation You can now enjoy the slide deck from this session, which took place at the 2013 SharpBrains Virtual Summit (September 19-20th).What are scal­able best prac­tices to spread smart health?  Max­i­miz­ing health and well-being requires qual­ity decision-making and pos­i­tive lifestyles across mil­lions, if not bil­lions, of indi­vid­ual decision-makers. How can we accel­er­ate the adop­tion of smart health behav­iors in scal­able and sys­tem­atic ways, ensur­ing ben­e­fits at both the indi­vid­ual and pop­u­la­tion lev­els, and empow­er­ing con­sumers, patients and professionals?

CONCLUSIONS: Advance and concurrent request EAS cases differ in age, duration of illness, and past experience. Advance request EAS cases were complicated by ambiguous directives, patients being unaware of the EAS procedure, and physicians' difficulty assessing "unbearable suffering." Notably, some concurrent request patients were quite impaired yet deemed competent by appeals to previous statements. PMID: 31537470 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: 1 November 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: Physical, Volume 299Author(s): Dorsa Fahimi, Omid Mahdavipour, John Sabino, Richard M. White, Igor PaprotnyAbstractExposure to fine airborne particulate matter (PM), i.e., PM with an aerodynamic diameter (AD) less than 2.5 μm, is associated with many adverse health effects, including impaired pulmonary function, asthma, cardiovascular diseases, and Alzheimer. Consequently, there is a strong need for the development of small, low-cost wearable PM2.5 sensors that can be used by regular citizens to monitor their PM exposure. This work presents the design, ...

Authors: Kim BK, Kim SA, Baek SM, Lee EY, Lee ES, Chung CH, Ahn CM, Park SK Abstract Curcumin, a compound found in Indian yellow curry, is known to possess various biological activities, including anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer activities. Cur2004-8 is a synthetic curcumin derivative having symmetrical bis-alkynyl pyridines that shows a strong anti-angiogenic activity. In the present study, we examined the effect of dietary supplementation with Cur2004-8 on response to environmental stresses and aging using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model system. Dietary intervention with Cur2004-8 significantly...

Abstract Aim: To investigate the effect of crocin on the learning and memory acquisition of AD rats and its underlying mechanisms. Methods: A total of 48 healthy male SD rats were randomly divided into control group, AD model group, resveratrol group, and crocin group, with 12 rats per group. AD model was established by injecting Aβ 25-35 to the lateral ventricle of rats, and thereafter the rats were administrated with resveratrol (40 mg/kg), crocin (40 mg/kg), or PBS daily for 14 days. Y-maze test and sucrose preference test were used to detect the learning and memory acquisition of rats. Neuronal apopt...

Abstract Computational drug repositioning, designed to identify new indications for existing drugs, significantly reduced the cost and time involved in drug development. Prediction of drug-disease associations is promising for drug repositioning. Recent years have witnessed an increasing number of machine learning-based methods for calculating drug repositioning. In this paper, a novel feature learning method based on Gaussian interaction profile kernel and autoencoder (GIPAE) is proposed for drug-disease association. In order to further reduce the computation cost, both batch normalization layer and the full-conn...

AbstractMisfolded or unfolded proteins are accumulated in lumen of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) in ER stress condition. It has been implicated in many pathological conditions such as Alzheimer ’s disease, diabetic retinopathy, atherosclerosis, β-cell apoptosis and lung inflammation. We found a series ofN-substituted-2-arylcarbonylhydrazinecarbothioamides to potently decrease ER stress signal, showing up to almost 300-fold better activity than 1-hydroxynaphthoic acid and tauro-ursodesoxycholic acid, positive controls, respectively. Structure −activity relationship (SAR) study showed that 2-arylcarbonyl moiety...

We report a case that illustrates a migration pattern seen a century ago that is currently in the process of repeating itself. Using information from a neuropathological examination, genetic analyses, and historical sources, we linked a patient with autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease in Hawai'i with her ancestors in Puerto Rico. In this patient we identified the G206A PSEN1 mutation, previously identified as being linked to a founder effect from Puerto Rico. At the turn of the twentieth century, due to devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the island's new status as a possession of the United States, over 5,000 Pue...

Early evidence suggests gait could be a marker of d...

However, the method for effectively conducting voxel-wise analysis on tau PET images still needs to be improved. In the present study, we introduced a tau PET...
