Trade secret laws and initial public offering underpricing
AbstractThis paper examines the impact of trade secret laws on the underpricing of initial public offerings (IPOs) in the United States, where we focus on the Uniform Trade Secret Act and/or the inevitable disclosure doctrine. Given that trade secret laws help firms protect their know-how in the form of trade secrets, we propose that trade secrets protected by these laws may result in increased corporate opacity, leading to greater IPO underpricing. Empirically, the average first-day returns of IPOs in states with trade secret laws are 12.7% higher than those in states without such laws. Using the information disclosed in ...

Two-year outcomes of Xen 45 gel stent implantation in patients with open-angle glaucoma: real-world data from the Fight Glaucoma Blindness registry
CONCLUSIONS: The Xen 45 gel stent implant offers acceptable long-term efficacy for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma. However, there is a significant rate of reoperation and needling, and outcomes are less effective if combined with cataract surgery.PMID:38789132 | DOI:10.1136/bjo-2023-325077 (Source: The British Journal of Ophthalmology)

The 'Reasonable Patient' of 2027: A Vision Paper
Stud Health Technol Inform. 2024 May 23;314:70-74. doi: 10.3233/SHTI240060.ABSTRACTThe verdict of the UK Supreme Court in the case of Bellman versus Boojum-Snark Integrated Care Trust (2027) will have profound implications for medical practice, medical education, and medical research, as well as the regulation of medicine and allied healthcare fields. Major changes will result from the definition of person-centred care built into the expanded definition of informed and preference-based consent central to the judgment made in favour of Bellman's negligence claim. (For the avoidance of doubt this is a vision paper.).PMID:387...

Evaluation of a Conference on Cancer-Related Financial and Legal Issues: A Potential Resource to Counter Financial Toxicity
This study describes the conception, development, and growth of the Triage Cancer Conference hosted by Triage Cancer, a national nonprofit organization providing free legal and financial education to the cancer community. We conducted a retrospective analysis of post-conference participant surveys. Descriptive statistics were calculated for participant demographics, and acceptability, feasibility, and appropriateness were evaluated. From 2016-2021, 1239 participants attended the conference and completed post-conference surveys. Participants included social workers (33%), nurses (30%), and cancer patients/survivors (21%), w...

Reframing wildlife disease management problems with decision analysis
Conserv Biol. 2024 May 24:e14284. doi: 10.1111/cobi.14284. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTContemporary wildlife disease management is complex because managers need to respond to a wide range of stakeholders, multiple uncertainties, and difficult trade-offs that characterize the interconnected challenges of today. Despite general acknowledgment of these complexities, managing wildlife disease tends to be framed as a scientific problem, in which the major challenge is lack of knowledge. The complex and multifactorial process of decision-making is collapsed into a scientific endeavor to reduce uncertainty. As a result, contemp...

The Development and the Assessment of Sampling Methods for Hard-to-Reach Populations in HIV Surveillance
AbstractDue to stigma or legal issues, populations with higher HIV risk are often hard to reach, which impedes accurate population estimation of HIV burden. To better sample hard-to-reach populations (HTRPs) for HIV surveillance, various sampling methods have been designed and/or used since HIV epidemic following the first reported AIDS cases in 1981. This paper describes the development and the assessment (i.e., validity and reproducibility) of approximately eight sampling methods (e.g., convenience sampling, snowball sampling, time location sampling, and respondent-driven sampling) for HTRPs in HIV surveillance, with a f...

IJERPH, Vol. 21, Pages 675: Amazon Wildfires and Respiratory Health: Impacts during the Forest Fire Season from 2009 to 2019
This study aims to assess the relationship between forest fire occurrences, meteorological factors, and hospitalizations due to respiratory diseases in the Legal Amazon region from 2009 to 2019. Employing simultaneous equation models with official data, we examined the association between deforestation-induced fires and respiratory health issues. Over the studied period, the Legal Amazon region recorded a staggering 1,438,322 wildfires, with 1,218,606 (85%) occurring during August–December, known as the forest fire season. During the forest fire season, a substantial portion (566,707) of the total 1,532,228 h...

State-corporate legal symbiosis and social harm: the case of the steel factory ‘Ilva’ in Taranto, Italy
AbstractFor more than a decade, epidemiological surveys have shown that Taranto, Italy, has a critical health situation. In particular, two epidemiological reports have established a causal link between mortality and morbidity in Taranto and the industrial production of Ilva, one of Europe ’s largest steel mills. Despite its negative impact on local health, Ilva has been allowed to produce thanks to a favorable legal framework. In particular, this article focuses on seven years central to the recent history of Ilva (2011–2017), in which the state has engaged in frenetic and compul sive lawmaking aimed to establish a fa...

House panel takes Fauci adviser to task for allegedly evading public records laws
This week brought more bad news for scientists connected to a nonprofit U.S. research organization, the EcoHealth Alliance, some of whose critics allege it helped spark the COVID-19 pandemic with risky virus studies. A congressional panel yesterday grilled a top scientific adviser to former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci about email exchanges the witness had with his longtime friend Peter Daszak, EcoHealth’s embattled president. Both Democrats and Republicans on the panel suggested the adviser tried to evade public records laws and offered inappropriate help to the Ec...
