Conclusions: In the context of this framework, cortisol may serve as a biomarker for the development of AUD, as well as a biomarker of risk or relapse. This review ends with both theoretical and clinical implications, as well as directions for future research. PMID: 32493131 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The objective of this study was to provide an overview of whether adherence to brain trauma foundation (BTF) guidelines improved outcomes following TBI utilizing intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring. Methods: This cohort study between 2000 and 2013 involved 1848 patients who sustained severe blunt TBI. Outcomes were correlated with whether or not ICP monitoring was utilized based on BTF guidelines. Results: The BTF guideline adherence rate for utilizing ICP monitoring in patients with TBI was 30% in 1848 patients. Adherence rates positively correlated with younger age, high injury severity scores, lower Glasgow C...
AbstractThe current study examined whether husband ’s controlling and domineering attitudes moderated the association between husband’s alcohol consumption and women’s physical violence experience. Using data from the Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), a total of 20,101 nationally representative married women in Nigeria reported on h usband-perpetrated physical violence, husband’s alcohol consumption, and husband’s controlling and domineering attitudes. Weighted data were analyzed using zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) regression models. The models revealed that women whose hus...

CONCLUSIONS: Both WFO and WFG PRK using a Schwind Amaris 750S laser for low to moderate myopia were safe and effective at improving visual and refractive outcomes. However, WFG PRK induced fewer spherical aberrations than WFO PRK and may be more advantageous for eyes with high HOA root mean square or spherical aberration. PMID: 32495529 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Patients are not always aware of the risk of oral cancer. Accurate information should be provided to patients as well as to specialists rather than just dentists as regard as the risk factors for oral cancer, the importance of referral to specialized departments and timing. The use of new technologies should be widespread. PMID: 32489088 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
[Daily Maverick] Government has under-estimated how much the banning of alcohol and cigarettes boosted illicit trade. With alcohol now back on sale, it would be good for the country if the ban on tobacco products was lifted as soon as possible.
Abstract Alkenes and ketones are two classes of ubiquitous, toxic organic compounds in natural environments produced in several biological and anthropogenic processes. In spite of their toxicity, these compounds are utilized as primary carbon and energy sources or are generated as intermediate metabolites in the metabolism of other compounds by many diverse bacteria. The aerobic metabolism of some of the smallest and most volatile of these compounds (propylene, acetone, isopropanol) involves novel carboxylation reactions resulting in a common product acetoacetate. Propylene is metabolized in a four-step pathway in...
CONCLUSION: the proportion of admissions due to decompensated HCV-related cirrhosis has decreased by almost 30 % since the introduction of the DAA. In addition, the characteristics of patients admitted have changed since the application of interferon-free regimens. PMID: 32496126 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: our study suggested that GLP-1RAs may improve LFF, BMI and adiponectin in patients with NAFLD. Furthermore, the potential efficacy to treat NAFLD was also shown. More high-quality RCTs are needed to validate our findings. PMID: 32496108 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
