Association between screen time and sleep habits in 11-to-12-year-old French middle school students.

[Association between screen time and sleep habits in 11-to-12-year-old French middle school students]. Rev Epidemiol Sante Publique. 2020 May 24;: Authors: Messaadi N, Bayen S, Beghin L, Lefebvre JM, Colleau S, Deken V, Cottencin O, Quersin F, Descamps A, Vanhelst J Abstract BACKGROUND: Screen media usage has become increasingly commonplace in daily life with children initiating themselves to screen media at an early age. Given the high prevalence of screen viewing among children worldwide, its impact on children's health has become a cause for concern. Unfortunately, little information on the independent association between sleep habits and screen time in French children is currently available. The main aim of this study was to assess possible relationships between screen time and sleep habits (quality, duration, etc.) among young middle school students in France. METHODS: A total of 448 (55 % girls) 11-to-12-year-olds from 5 schools were included. Body weight and height were measured according to standard procedures and BMI percentiles were determined based on international reference values. Sleep parameters were obtained by sleep diaries and visual estimations. A sleep diary was maintained for one week to record sleeping and waking times and related information. Information on lifestyle habits (sedentary behaviours, physical activity, and dietary intake) was obtained via standardised questionnaires. RESULTS: Participant...

Conclusion: Alteration of signal transduction by a drug is the goal of chemogenomics, a new branch formed by combination of chemistry and genomics. The proliferation, angiogenesis and apoptosis of cancer cells are regulated by cellular signaling of transcription factors, protein kinases, transmembrane receptors, extracellular ligands and some external factors like oncogenic mutations, ubiquitin-proteasome pathway with epigenetic changes. Traditional anticancer drugs either alter DNA synthesis or control cell division while new drugs retard tumor growth or induce apoptosis. The deterioration of dopaminergic neurons in subst...

Background: Nurses providing home visits were concerned that some mothers were not routinely using safe sleep practices for their newborns and infants. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to listen to how home visit nurses offer education to their African American clients about the safe to sleep guidelines during the prenatal and postpartum periods and discuss ways nurses could support mothers to be more successful in using safe sleep practices. Study Design and Methods: A focus group was conducted with home visit nurses who partner with pregnant mothers and follow them through the first 2 years of their child's...
