COVID-19 meets neurointervention on the pages of JNIS
As 2019 came to a close, a novel B-coronavirus, labeled by the World Health Organization as COVID-19, was noted to be spreading in China.1 The COVID-19 virus is an enveloped single-strand, positive-sense RNA, which means that the virus can use its RNA as the template from which to create proteins needed for propagation and, ultimately, spread. The name coronavirus refers to the characteristic crown-like appearance of these viruses that is seen on electron microscopy. By spring 2020, COVID-19 was spreading rapidly throughout the United States and Europe, and neurointerventionalists soon found themselves on the frontline.2 T...

International Nursing Collaboration to Establish the Philippine Quit Line: Using a Conceptual Model for Partnership and Sustainability in Global Health
Tobacco use remains the single most preventable cause of death and disability worldwide. In the Philippines, 28.3% of the people are current tobacco smokers, which is one of the highest smoking rates in Asia. The World Health Organization estimates that 10 Filipinos die every day from cancer, stroke, and lung and heart disease caused by cigarette smoke and approximately 24 million Filipinos are exposed to secondhand smoke in the home. Although there are quit lines in all 50 U.S. states and territories, there was no access to this smoking cessation program in the Philippines before the initiation of the international collab...

How to Keep Alzheimer ’s From Bringing About the Zombie Apocalypse
I tried to kill my father for years. To be fair, I was following his wishes. He’d made it clear that when he no longer recognized me, when he could no longer talk, when the nurses started treating him like a toddler, he didn’t want to live any longer. My father was 58 years old when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He took the diagnosis with the self-deprecating humor he’d spent a lifetime cultivating, constantly cracking jokes about how he would one day turn into a zombie, a walking corpse. We had a good 10 years with him after the diagnosis. Eventually, his jokes came true. Seven years ...

Let Plants be Thy Medicine – You Are What You Eat
Credit: Busani Bafana/IPSBy Esther Ngumbi and Ifeanyi NsoforILLINOIS, United States / ABUJA, Oct 16 2019 (IPS) United Nations World Food Day is celebrated around the world on October 16 under the theme: “Our Actions ARE Our Future. Healthy Diets for a Zero Hunger World”. This theme is timely, especially, because across Africa and around the world, there has been a gradual rise in malnutrition and diet-related non communicable diseases, as highlighted in The Lancet study and a United Nations Report published earlier this year. While 45 percent of deaths in children are from nutrition-related causes, mainly malnu...

A Copernican Approach to Brain Advancement: The Paradigm of Allostatic Orchestration
The objective of this presentation is to explore historical, scientific, interventional, and other differences between the two paradigms, so that innovators, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, patients, end-users, and others can gain clarity with respect to both the explicit and implicit assumptions associated with brain advancement agendas of any kind. Over the course of three decades, a series of brain-centric, evolution-inspired insights have been articulated with increasing refinement, as principles of allostasis (Sterling and Eyer, 1988; Sterling, 2004, 2012, 2014). Allostasis recognizes that the role of the ...

A Novel Deep Neural Network Model for Multi-Label Chronic Disease Prediction
Conclusions concludes this work along with future work. Dataset and Data Preprocessing In the work, we mainly focus on multiple chronic disease classification. It can be formulated into a multi-label classification problem. There are three common chronic diseases are selected from the physical examination records: hypertension (H), diabetes (D), and fatty liver (FL). In the experiments, the physical examination datasets are collected from a local medical center, which contain 110,300 physical examination records from about 80,000 anonymous patients (Li et al., 2017a,b). Sixty-two feature items are selected from over 100...

Harnessing the Four Elements for Mental Health
DiscussionAs detailed above, the “elements” in both a classical and a contemporary sense have effects on our mental health and are potentially modifiable aspects that can be harnessed as therapeutic interventions. The most robust interventional evidence currently available shows tentative support for several use of the elements via horticultural and nature-exposure therapy, green exercise/physical activity, sauna and heat therapy, balneotherapy, and breathing exercises. It should be noted that, in many cases, these interventions were not studied in definitive diagnosed psychiatric disorders and thus it is pre...
