Prognostic importance of long-term SBP variability in high-risk hypertension
Objective: In addition to high blood pressure variability (BPV), low BPV was associated with adverse cardiovascular prognosis in selected high-risk patients. We explored this issue in the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) using a nonlinear approach with BPV as a continuous variable. Methods: Long-term systolic BPV (SBPV) (coefficient of variation, CoV %) was calculated on quarterly visits until a fatal/nonfatal cardiovascular event or all-cause mortality, excluding titration period and patients with missing visits. We used Cox proportional hazard models with penalized smoothing splines to shape the r...

Possible Roles for Basal Levels of (p)ppGpp: Growth Efficiency Vs. Surviving Stress
Two (p)ppGpp nucleotide analogs, sometimes abbreviated simply as ppGpp, are widespread in bacteria and plants. Their name alarmone reflects a view of their function as intracellular hormone-like protective alarms that can increase a 100-fold when sensing any of an array of physical or nutritional dangers, such as abrupt starvation, that trigger lifesaving adjustments of global gene expression and physiology. The diversity of mechanisms for stress-specific adjustments of this sort is large and further compounded by almost infinite microbial diversity. The central question raised by this review is whether the small basal lev...

Involuntary Autobiographical Memories in Schizophrenia: Characteristics and Conditions of Elicitation
Involuntary autobiographical memories are mental representations of personally experienced past events that come to mind spontaneously, with no preceding attempt to recall them. They have been showed to be more frequent and more emotional in the psychosis continuum. Although schizophrenia is strongly associated with thought disorders, including cognitive intrusions of thought, images, semantic knowledge, research on patients' involuntary autobiographical memories is limited. We undertook two studies to compare involuntary and voluntary remembering in schizophrenia and the conditions in which involuntary memories occurs in ...

Dreaming, Mind-Wandering, and Hypnotic Dreams
Hobson's AIM theory offers a general framework for thinking about states of consciousness like wakefulness, REM dreaming and NREM mentations in terms of a state space defined by the dimensions of the level of brain activity, the source of input, and the type of neurochemical modulation. This account inspired theoretical models of other altered states of consciousness—including hypnosis—claiming that studying REM dreaming can advance our understanding of these phenomena as well. However, recent developments showed that hypnosis is not a sleep like stage, and that the REM-centric attitude toward dreaming is mistaken. At ...

IJERPH, Vol. 17, Pages 7345: Immediate Antiretroviral Therapy: The Need for a Health Equity Approach
obert H. Remien Immediate antiretroviral therapy (iART), defined as same-day initiation of ART or as soon as possible after diagnosis, has recently been recommended by global and national clinical care guidelines for patients newly diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Based on San Francisco’s Rapid ART Program Initiative for HIV Diagnoses (RAPID) model, most iART programs in the US condense ART initiation, insurance acquisition, housing assessment, and mental health and substance use evaluation into an initial visit. However, the RAPID model does not explicitly address structural racism and ...

Lemierre syndrome: Current evidence and rationale of the Bacteria-associated thrombosis, thrombophlebitis and LEmierre syndrome registry (BATTLE)
Lemierre syndrome is a rare but potentially fatal condition characterized by septic thrombophlebitis of the head and neck district, preferentially affecting adolescents and young adults and manifesting as a complication of a local bacterial infection – typically, a pharyngotonsillitis or an abscess. It is historically associated with the Gram-negative anaerobic rod Fusobacterium necrophorum and with thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. However, its definition has never been firmly established, and its spectrum within the continuum of bacteria-associated thrombophlebitis may be larger than what presumed so far.

Structural Anisotropy vs. Mechanical Anisotropy: The Contribution of Axonal Fibers to the Material Properties of Brain White Matter.
Abstract Brain's micro-structure plays a critical role in its macro-structure material properties. Since the structural anisotropy in the brain white matter has been introduced due to axonal fibers, considering the direction of axons in the continuum models has been mediated to improve the results of computational simulations. The aim of the current study was to investigate the role of fiber direction in the material properties of brain white matter and compare the mechanical behavior of the anisotropic white matter and the isotropic gray matter. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) was employed to detect the direction ...

Back to the Hospital for Chronic Care: a Hybrid Generalist Model
AbstractSingapore, like many countries, is attempting to meet the growing healthcare needs of an ageing population with a high burden of chronic diseases. Despite efforts to integrate and increase healthcare capacity, longstanding challenges remain difficult to overcome. Recently, policymakers have considered a new approach to building chronic and eldercare capacity —the Integrated General Hospital (IGH). The development of the IGH model is motivated by a combination of factors: the limit to which the primary care system can manage patients with increasingly complex chronic diseases, a longstanding preference of patients...

Heterotrophic eukaryotes show a slow-fast continuum, not a gleaner-exploiter trade-off Ecology
Gleaners and exploiters (opportunists) are organisms adapted to feeding in nutritionally poor and rich environments, respectively. A trade-off between these two strategies—a negative relationship between the rate at which organisms can acquire food and ingest it—is a critical assumption in many ecological models. Here, we evaluate evidence for this trade-off...

The continuum between GH deficiency and GH insensitivity in children
AbstractThe continuum of growth hormone (GH)-IGF-I axis defects extends from severe to mild GH deficiency, through short stature disorders of undefined aetiology, to GH insensitivity disorders which can also be mild or severe. This group of defects comprises a spectrum of endocrine, biochemical, phenotypic and genetic abnormalities. The extreme cases are generally easily diagnosed because they conform to well-studied phenotypes with recognised biochemical features. The milder cases of both GH deficiency and GH insensitivity are less well defined and also overlap with the group of short stature conditions, labelled as idiop...

Mental Health Identification Practices of Jails: The Unmet Needs of the "Silent" Population: Special Issue: Criminal Justice and Community Psychology: Our Values and Our Work.
Authors: Comartin EB, Milanovic E, Nelson V, Kubiak S Abstract The overrepresentation of individuals with mental illness in the criminal/legal system is well documented. While professional associations urge diversion towards treatment, little is known about the practices these institutions use to identify this population. One understudied space in the criminal/legal continuum is jails. This exploratory study compares two types of mental health identification at jail booking to assess jail- and community-based service outcomes by identification type (N = 2956): (a) staff observation and (b) a standardized screenin...

A Structured Approach to the Diagnosis of Peripheral Nervous System Disorders
This article describes the nature and pattern of sensory and motor deficits associated with lesions of specific spinal nerve roots, plexus, or peripheral nerves. It also describes the patterns of sensory and motor deficits that suggest multifocal or generalized disorders of the motor neurons, sensory neurons, and peripheral nerves. RECENT FINDINGS The pattern of sensory and motor deficits may be used to distinguish lesions of the peripheral nervous system from those of the central nervous system. The spinal roots, nerve plexus, and peripheral nerves supply specific muscles and receive sensory input from distinctive cuta...

Completion and Factors Associated with Maternity Continuum of Care among Mothers Who Gave Birth in the Last One Year in Enemay District, Northwest Ethiopia.
Conclusions and Recommendation. This study showed that less than half of the participants had achieved the continuum of care and education level, and both respondents and their husband's occupation, parity, autonomy in health care decision, exposure to the mass media, and wantedness of pregnancy were associated with the completion of the maternity continuum of care; therefore, working on enhancing the capacity of women's autonomy in health care and decision-making and preventing unintended pregnancy helps to improve the completion of the maternity continuum of care.

Conceptual Model for the Hepatocellular Carcinoma Screening Continuum: Current Status and Research Agenda
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) continues to have a dismal prognosis, with 5-year survival below 20%. This poor prognosis can be in part attributed to failures along the cancer screening process continuum such as underuse of screening in at risk patients and appropriate treatments for patients with HCC. Better understanding these process failures, and how they compare to those seen in other cancer types, can help inform potential intervention targets and strategies to reduce HCC-related mortality.

The Genomic Landscape of Divergence Across the Speciation Continuum in Island-Colonising Silvereyes (Zosterops lateralis)
Inferring the evolutionary dynamics at play during the process of speciation by analyzing the genomic landscape of divergence is a major pursuit in population genomics. However, empirical assessments of genomic landscapes under varying evolutionary scenarios that are known a priori are few, thereby limiting our ability to achieve this goal. Here we combine RAD-sequencing and individual-based simulations to evaluate the genomic landscape of divergence in the silvereye (Zosterops lateralis). Using pairwise comparisons that differ in divergence timeframe and the presence or absence of gene flow, we document how genomic patter...
