Abstract Human health and environmental risks are increasing following air pollution associated with vehicular and industrial emissions in which particulate matter is a constituent. The purpose of this review was to assess studies on the health effects and mortality induced by particles published for the last 15 years. The literature survey indicated the existence of strong positive associations between fine and ultrafine particles' exposure and cardiovascular, hypertension, obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus, cancer health risks, and mortality. Its exposure is also associated with increased odds of hypertensive...

In this study, we targeted people, both male and female, in the age group of >20 and <60, excluding pregnancy and genetic factors. This paper qualifies as a tutorial article on how to use different ML methods to identify potential risk factors of obesity/overweight. Although institutions such as “Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)” and “National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE)” guidelines work to understand the cause and consequences of overweight/obesity, we aimed to utilize the potential of data science to assess the correlated risk factors of ob...

AbstractPurposeLifestyle changes in diabetes mellitus leads to metabolic syndrome, thus resulting in a hike in micro and macrovascular complications in diabetes mellitus patients. The main objective of the study  was to identify the occurrence of metabolic syndrome and to evaluate the gender-associated difference in each component of metabolic syndrome by using International Diabetic Federation (IDF) and National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III)criteria.MethodsThis is a cross-sectional study conducted in 350 type II diabetes mellitus patients. All the study participants withi...

Rationale: Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome is a serious and rare disease, which is secondary to preeclampsia in most cases. Hypertension is usually considered as a premonitory symptom of HELLP syndrome. In some patients with HELLP syndrome; however, they develop hypertension very late, even after liver enzymes are elevated or platelet count is decreased. This condition is known as atypical HELLP syndrome. Patient concerns: We screened and identified 4 cases of atypical HELLP syndrome in our hospital database from January 2007 to December 2018. All patients had a history of nonspec...

(Abstracted from J Pediatr 2019;215:64–74) Fetal growth restriction (FGR) and preterm birth are associated with an increase in morbidity and mortality during infancy. Growth-restricted and preterm newborns are also at an increased risk of developing obesity, hypertension, non–insulin-dependent diabetes, and atherosclerosis later in life.

Authors: Schaller S, Knippel AJ, Verde PE, Kozlowski P Abstract Objective: Concordance-analysis and evaluation of existing algorithms detecting late-onset preeclampsia during first trimester screeningMethods: Retrospective cohort study investigating risk algorithms of late-onset preeclampsia during first trimester screening in a German prenatal center. Three previously developed algorithms including anamnestic factors (Apriori) and biophysical markers (BioM) were investigated by using detection rates (DR) with fixed FPR 10% and fixed cutoff>1:100. Furthermore, we set up a concordance-analysis of test results in ...

One of the worst symptoms of any plague is uncertainty—who it will strike, when it will end, why it began. Merely understanding a pandemic does not stop it, but an informed public can help curb its impact and slow its spread. It can also provide a certain ease of mind in a decidedly uneasy time. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 pandemic from TIME’s readers, along with the best and most current answers science can provide. A note about our sourcing: While there are many, many studies underway investigating COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-19, the novel coronavirus that causes the illn...

Abstract Excessive weight is associated with periodontitis because of inflammatory mediators secreted by the adipose tissue. Periodontal impairments can occur during pregnancy due to association between high hormonal levels and inadequate oral hygiene. Moreover, periodontitis and excessive weight during pregnancy can negatively affect an infant ’ s weight at birth. Objective This observational, cross-sectional study aimed to evaluate the association between pre-pregnancy overweight/obesity, periodontitis during the third trimester of pregnancy, and the infants' birth weight. Methodology The sample set was divided int...

The role of paternal health in fertility outcomes has become increasingly clear during the past decade. Environmental exposures, such as tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana, can impair semen parameters. In addition to well-established conditions, such as varicocele and hypogonadism, paternal comorbidity in the form of obesity, diabetes, and hypertension have now been shown to have significant impact on semen parameters. Beyond the semen analysis itself, sperm quality as measured by deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) fragmentation has been implicated in many clinical pathologies including recurrent pregnancy loss and failure of in &nb...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: We assessed the incidence, risk factors and adverse birth outcomes associated with elevated liver enzymes and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome. DESIGN: A retrospective population-based cohort study. SETTING: Canada (excluding Quebec), 2012/13-2015/16. POPULATION: Mothers with a singleton hospital live birth or stillbirth at ≥24 weeks gestation (N=1,078,323). METHODS: HELLP syndrome was identified using ICD-10-CA diagnostic code from delivery hospitalization data. We used logistic regression to identify independent risk factors for HELLP syndrome by obtaining adjusted ...
