Time to Follow-up After Colorectal Cancer Screening by Health Insurance Type
ConclusionsThis study found that patients with Medicaid were less likely than those with commercial insurance to complete follow-up colonoscopy after a positive fecal immunochemical test and had longer average times to follow-up. With the future of coverage mechanisms uncertain, it is important and timely to assess influences of health insurance coverage on likelihood of follow-up colonoscopy and identify potential disparities in screening completion.

When it is invasive, this cancer affects the deeper tissues of the cervix and may have spread to other parts of the body. Cervical cancer is caused through acquisition of HPV virus (Human Papillomavirus) when a woman is sexually active and the virus has been acquired. Some women then develop pre cancer lesions but in about 66% to 70% of these women, the body normally clears it away. However,

Design and development of a self-microemulsifying drug delivery system of Olmesartan Medoxomil for enhanced bioavailability.
Authors: Komesli Y, Ozkaya AB, Ergur BU, Kirilmaz L, Karasulu E Abstract Olmesartan Medoxomil (OM) is a hydrophobic antihypertensive drug with low bioavailability (26%) and is known to have adverse effects such as celiac disease and enteropathy. The purpose of this study was to develop SMEDDS to increase bioavailability and decrease potential side effects of OM. Hydrophilic lipophilic balance was calculated by testing solubility of OM in different oils, surfactants and cosurfactants to obtain the most suitable combination of SMEDDS. Pseudoternary phase diagram was used to select the better oil/water formulation of ...

Pore size effect on the separation of polymers by interaction chromatography. A Monte Carlo study.
Abstract When the polymers are studied by interaction chromatography (IC) in porous media, the IC separation mechanism competes with the size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) mechanism and under specific conditions close to the critical adsorption point (CAP), the elution times of monodisperse polymer samples nonmonotonically depend on pore sizes. We performed Monte Carlo (MC) simulations to elucidate this intriguing effect. By analyzing the behavior of self-avoiding and intersecting chains in two-dimensionally (2D)-confining square pores and in 1D-confining slits in good and Θ-solvents, we confirmed that the dimen...
