Ancient Chinese medical ethics and the four principles of biomedical ethics. (1/200)

The four principles approach to biomedical ethics (4PBE) has, since the 1970s, been increasingly developed as a universal bioethics method. Despite its wide acceptance and popularity, the 4PBE has received many challenges to its cross-cultural plausibility. This paper first specifies the principles and characteristics of ancient Chinese medical ethics (ACME), then makes a comparison between ACME and the 4PBE with a view to testing out the 4PBE's cross-cultural plausibility when applied to one particular but very extensive and prominent cultural context. The result shows that the concepts of respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice are clearly identifiable in ACME. Yet, being influenced by certain socio-cultural factors, those applying the 4PBE in Chinese society may tend to adopt a "beneficence-oriented", rather than an "autonomy-oriented" approach, which, in general, is dissimilar to the practice of contemporary Western bioethics, where "autonomy often triumphs".  (+info)

To give or sell human gametes--the interplay between pragmatics, policy and ethics. (2/200)

The ever-growing acceptance and use of assisted human reproduction techniques has caused demand for "donated" sperm and eggs to outstrip supply. Medical professionals and others argue that monetary reward is the only way to recruit sufficient numbers of "donors". Is this a clash between pragmatics and policy/ethics? Where monetary payments are the norm, alternative recruitment strategies used successfully elsewhere may not have been considered, nor the negative consequences of commercialism on all participants thought through. Considerations leading some countries to ban the buying and selling of sperm, eggs and embryos are outlined and a case made that the collective welfare of all involved parties be the primary consideration in this, at times heated, debate.  (+info)

Contribution of APOA5 gene variants to plasma triglyceride determination and to the response to both fat and glucose tolerance challenges. (3/200)

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of APOA5 variants on fasting lipids and to the response to both an oral fat tolerance test (OFTT) and an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). The association of two APOA5 SNPs [S19W (SNP5), -1131T>C (SNP3)] and an APOA4/A5 intergenic SNP [-12238T>C (SNP4)] were examined in healthy young men (n=774) who had undergone both an OFTT and an OGTT. Both -1131T>C and S19W rare alleles were associated with triglyceride (TG)-raising effects (11%, P=0.008; 21% (in cases), P<0.026, respectively) and showed additive effects on TG. None of the variants influenced the responsiveness to the OFTT after correcting for baseline TG. Homozygosity for the -12238T>C rare allele was associated with higher waist to hip ratio (P<0.0006), systolic blood pressure (P=0.012) and AUC and peak of insulin after OGTT (P=0.003 and P=0.027, respectively), traits that define the metabolic syndrome. Our results strongly support the role of APOA5 in determining plasma TG levels in an age-independent manner and highlight the importance of the APOC3/A4/A5 gene cluster in both TG and metabolic homeostasis.  (+info)

Maternal lung cancer and testicular cancer risk in the offspring. (4/200)

It has been hypothesized that smoking during pregnancy could increase the offspring's risk for testicular cancer. This hypothesis is indirectly supported by both ecological studies and studies of cancer aggregations within families. However, results from analytical epidemiological studies are not consistent, possibly due to methodological difficulties. To further study the association between smoking during pregnancy and testicular cancer, we did a population-based cohort study on cancer risk among offspring of women diagnosed with lung cancer. Through the use of the Swedish Cancer Register and the Swedish Second-Generation Register, we identified 8,430 women who developed lung cancer between 1958 and 1997 and delivered sons between 1941 and 1979. Cancer cases among the male offspring were then identified through the Swedish Cancer Register. Standardized incidence ratios were computed, using 95% confidence intervals. We identified 12,592 male offspring of mothers with a subsequent diagnosis of lung cancer, and there were 40 cases of testicular cancer (standardized incidence ratio, 1.90; 95% confidence interval, 1.35-2.58). The association was independent of maternal lung cancer subtype, and the risk of testicular cancer increased stepwise with decreasing time interval between birth and maternal lung cancer diagnosis. Our results support the hypothesis that exposure to cigarette smoking in utero increases the risk of testicular cancer.  (+info)

Continuity of care from a patient's point of view: context, process, relation. (5/200)

BACKGROUND: It is easy to forget about the real human experience when faced with the pressure of output measurement, organizational change, and large-scale statistical studies. This article takes a different perspective and provides a glimpse into one man's life to show the many relationships that can be involved when someone is ill. METHODS: The information in this paper is based on interviews with multiple individuals involved in the care of one patient. The theoretical framework is narrative--it takes discourse as its material base--and introduces the concept of the "signifier" to organize the data. RESULTS: The interview results demonstrate the theoretical strength of the signifier concept and reveal the process and context of the work of three particular physicians and the nature of the relations they were able to establish with this one patient and his son. CONCLUSIONS: This way of conceptionalizing the process of care from the patient's point of view enables us to reflect on the changing nature of continuity of care as a core value for family physicians  (+info)

Genetic Analysis Workshop 13: simulated longitudinal data on families for a system of oligogenic traits. (6/200)

The Genetic Analysis Workshop 13 simulated data aimed to mimic the major features of the real Framingham Heart Study data that formed Problem 1, but under a known inheritance model and with 100 replicates, so as to allow evaluation of the statistical properties of various methods. The pedigrees used were the 330 real pedigree structures (comprising 4692 individuals) with some minor changes to protect confidentiality. Fifty trait genes and 399 microsatellite markers were simulated by gene dropping on 22 autosomal chromosomes. Assuming random ascertainment of families, a system of eight longitudinal quantitative traits (designed to be similar to those in the real data) was generated with a wide range of heritabilities, including some pleiotropic and interactive effects. Genes could affect either the baseline level or the rate of change of the phenotype. Hypertension diagnosis and treatment were simulated with treatment availability, compliance, and efficacy depending on calendar year. Nongenetic traits of smoking and alcohol were generated as covariates for other traits. Death was simulated as a hazard rate depending upon age, sex, smoking, cholesterol, and systolic blood pressure. After the complete data were simulated, missing data indicators were generated based on logistic models fitted to the real data, involving the subject's history of previous missing values, together with that of their spouses, parents, siblings, and offspring, as well as marital status, only-child indicators, current value at certain simulated traits, and the data collection pattern on the cohort into which each subject was ascertained.  (+info)

Variance components linkage analysis for adjusted systolic blood pressure in the Framingham Heart Study. (7/200)

We performed variance components linkage analysis in nuclear families from the Framingham Heart Study on nine phenotypes derived from systolic blood pressure (SBP). The phenotypes were the maximum and mean SBP, and SBP at age 40, each analyzed either uncorrected, or corrected using two subsets of epidemiological/clinical factors. Evidence for linkage to chromosome 8p was detected with all phenotypes except the uncorrected maximum SBP, suggesting this region harbors a gene contributing to variation in SBP.  (+info)

Use of a random coefficient regression (RCR) model to estimate growth parameters. (8/200)

We used a random coefficient regression (RCR) model to estimate growth parameters for the time series of observed serum glucose levels in the Replicate 1 of the Genetic Analysis Workshop 13 simulated data. For comparison, a two time-point interval was also selected and the slope between these two observations was calculated. This process yielded four phenotypes: the RCR growth phenotype, a two time-point slope phenotype, and Time 1 and Time 2 serum glucose level phenotypes. These four phenotypes were used for linkage analyses on simulated chromosomes 5, 7, 9, and 21, those chromosomes that contained loci affecting the growth course for serum glucose levels. The linkage analysis of the RCR-derived phenotype showed overwhelming evidence for linkage at one locus (LOD 65.78 on chromosome 5), while showing elevated but nonsignificant LOD scores for two other loci (LOD 1.25 on chromosome 7, LOD 1.10 on chromosome 9), and no evidence of linkage for the final locus. The two time-point slope phenotype showed evidence for linkage at one locus (LOD 4.16 on chromosome 5) but no evidence for linkage at any of the other loci. A parallel cross-sectional approach, using as input phenotypes the endpoints of the two-point slope phenotype, gave strong linkage results for the major locus on chromosome 5 (maximal LOD scores of 17.90 and 27.24 for Time 1 and Time 2, respectively) while showing elevated but nonsignificant linkage results on chromosome 7 (maximal LOD scores of 1.71 and 1.48) and no evidence for linkage at the two remaining loci. The RCR growth parameter showed more power to detect linkage to the major locus than either the cross-sectional or two-point slope approach, but the cross-sectional approach gave a higher maximal LOD score for one of the minor loci.  (+info)

This country is seeing a dramatic incline in the aging of one of its largest populations, the baby boomer generation, bringing to the surface an unprecedented demand for needs and services in the adult child population as they transition among increasingly blurring familial roles, boundaries, and expectations. Shulman and Sperry (1992) defined adult children of aging parents as caregivers (p. 427), and state that they tend to range in age from 40 to 60 years of age, and that women account for approximately 72%. Stein, Wemmerus, Ward, Gaines, Freeberg, and Jewell (1998) asserted that in fact, despite such dramatic shifts in family roles, researchers have paid relatively little attention to the obligations that accompany parent-child relationships throughout adulthood ...

My views regarding my mother have changed in recent years.. Presently, she is someone who exists as part of a story in my life, catalyzing a significant examination of myself and those who surround me. I often contemplate whether that was her purpose, but intertwined in those thoughts; there is guilt. Parents make sacrifices for their children, and perhaps hers was the loss of our relationship, forcing me to embark on a new path.. However, I dont think shell ever be cognizant of that.. I have fond memories of her, times when she was a picturesque, doting mother, ferrying my friends and me to practice, taking us to the mall, and covering for me when I exceeded my curfew..

Fifty years ago in these pages, Kannel and colleagues (1) presented Framingham Heart Study data on "factors of risk" for coronary heart disease. Thirteen years earlier, the National Institutes of Health established an epidemiologic cohort study in Framingham, Massachusetts, in partial response to an epidemic of cardiovascular disease. Kannel and colleagues enrolled 5127 adults between the ages of 30 and 62 years who were free of coronary heart disease. During 6 years of follow-up, 186 men and women developed disease. The authors found that elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol concentration, and electrocardiographic evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy were strong independent predictors of risk. However, despite their compelling findings, the authors cautioned, "Whether or not the correction of these abnormalities once they are discovered will favorably alter the risk of development of disease, while reasonable to contemplate and perhaps attempt, remains to be demonstrated" (1). In ...

The needs for support among children with a seriously ill parent, who is waiting for heart transplantation, are unknown today. The aim was to describe now adult childrens experiences of social support in relation to a parents heart transplant during childhood. Nine females and four males were interviewed. The median age for the children was 18 at the transplantation and their parents had been ill before for 18 months (median) and on waiting list for 161 days (mean). Three categories emerged: health care professionals approaches, family and friends approaches, and society approaches. Our results show that there was lack of support for children of heart transplantation patients. Support in the shape of information was in most cases provided by the sick or healthy parent. It is of great clinical importance to develop psychosocial support programs for children with a seriously ill parent waiting for heart transplantation (before, during, and after surgery).. ...
Adult children sometimes feel concerned that theyre invading their parents privacy when raising money issues. Parents, meanwhile, can feel threatened, or worry about losing their independence. Still, it can be helpful to have a dialogue with your parents about their finances as they get older.. "If youre lucky, your parents are happy if you offer to help," said Amy Goyer, AARPs family and caregiving expert. "Or, you might get the reaction that this is none of your business.". Not surprisingly, many adult children and their parents sidestep the issue.. Recent studies confirm that parents avoid having conversations about aging and money, assuming that their adult children either know or will figure out what needs to happen. On the flip side, adult children are also unlikely to start a conversation about financial topics with their parents. But avoidance may lead to problems down the road.. Here are some tips to get these conversations started and to help make "the money talk" a successful ...

We developed a novel Bayesian model for analysis of multiple longitudinal traits and multi-variant models in family genetic studies. This is a significant advance because previous studies have looked at bivariate models, longitudinal data, or multi-SNV models separately. For the first time, we have developed an analytic approach that can incorporate all of these issues jointly. The model considers bivariate random family and random subject effects to account for correlation between outcomes, family members, and repeated measures of the same individual. The seemingly unrelated regression technique is used to correlate the residuals of the 2 outcomes measured at the same time for the same individual. Inherent in this method is Bayesian multiplicity for the control of false positives. Using the GAW18 simulated data set, we demonstrated the feasibility of the proposed model.. Compared to the Bayesian univariate model in which the 2 outcomes are modeled separately, our method had similar power, but ...
OBJECTIVE: To refine and validate the Parental Illness Impact Scale (PIIS), a questionnaire designed specifically to measure the quality of life of adolescent and adult children of neurologically affected parents. METHODS: Key informant interviews and a literature review were conducted to ensure all relevant themes were incorporated in the revised PIIS (PIIS-R). Pre-testing was achieved through a 17 member expert panel and cognitive interviews with eight adolescent and adult children. The revised instrument was administered to 169 adolescent and adult children of people with Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke and subjected to psychometric analysis. RESULTS: Principal components analysis resulted in eight subscales accounting for 60.6% of explained variance. The PIIS-R showed good concurrent and discriminant validity through correlations with established measures of quality of life and psychosocial well-being. Internal consistency was high (Cronbachs alpha .92), and test-retest

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Author(s): Tennille J. Checkovich & Steven Stern. 2002 Abstract: This paper uses a nonstructural, ordered discrete choice model to measure the effects of various parent and child characteristics upon the independent caregiving decisions of the adult children of elderly parents sampled in the 1982 and 1984 National Long Term Care Survey (NLTCS). While significant effects are noted, emphasis is placed on test statistics constructed to measure the independence of caregiving decisions. The test statistic results are conclusive: The caregiving decisions of adult children are dependent across time and family members. Structural models taking dependencies among family members into account note effects similar to those in the nonstructural model.

In todays world, its common for family members to live in different cities and states. As a result, many adult children must help their parents from afar. This task can be difficult, stressful and time consuming.. Families whose members live at a distance from one another have many difficult questions and issues to address. For example, most long-distance caregivers arent able to visit frequently and cant provide care in the home. Yet, despite valid reasons, adult children often feel guilty that they cant spend more time with their parents. They may also feel overwhelmed by the challenges of arranging services long distance.. One of the most difficult aspects of long-distance caring can be knowing when your help is needed and when you should make the trip in person. Clear emergencies - fire, accident, natural disaster, a serious medical problem - obviously require a trip. Other situations can be difficult to assess over the phone.. You may feel guilty because you can t be present to take ...

Lets talk about what happens if you experience a health crisis, are unable to make decisions for yourself, and do not have advance care directives in place. Without guidance from a Living Will, or your designated Health Care Power of Attorney, a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate Order) and/or POLST (Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment), medical personnel use all available measures to keep you alive. As soon as possible they turn to your next of kin for guidance, your spouse, parents, or adult children. All these steps might be fine with you. However, how would you feel if you were separated from your spouse, yet he or she is your next of kin and the only person available? What if you prefer to have a partner or friend make health care decisions for you rather than a parent or adult child? The person you want to make decisions for you may not be able to do so unless there is a health care directive in place. Its easy to see how in an emergency, when decisions must be made quickly, someone, ...

Recent progress in DNA-sequencing technologies has ushered in an era of rapid and cost-effective genome sequencing, enabling clinical applications [1] and the potential for personalized systems medicine [2] through the understanding of an individuals genetic risks and by integration with longitudinal phenotype measurements [3].The detailed knowledge of an individuals genotype poses a significant interpretation challenge: while genetic variants disrupting transcript structure and protein-coding sequences (for example, nonsense mutations) have long been considered "low hanging fruit" relative to variants in non-coding sequences, the field still struggles with interpreting missense mutations, which are more common, and more frequently associated with disease [4]. This has led to an increasing number of variants of uncertain significance (VUS). To address the resulting annotation and reporting challenges [5, 6], the American College for Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the Association for ...
How the advent of propofol - the drug associated with the deaths of Joan Rivers and Michael Jackson - changed the meaning of the term "sedation". "Twilight! She has to have twilight," insisted the adult daughter of my frail, 85-year-old patient. "She cant have general anesthesia. She hasnt been cleared for general anesthesia!". We were in the preoperative area of my hospital, where my patient - brightly alert, with a colorful headband and bright red lipstick - was about to undergo surgery. Her skin had broken down on both legs due to poor circulation in her veins, and she needed skin grafts to cover the open wounds. She had a long list of cardiac and other health problems.. This would be a painful procedure, and there would be no way to numb the areas well enough to do the surgery under local anesthesia alone. My job was to figure out the best combination of anesthesia medications to get her safely through her surgery. Her daughter was convinced that a little sedation would be enough. I wasnt ...

Allegedly the deli clerks were making fun of his adult daughter. (This is what he told us.). The deli staff had a different story to tell. Allegedly the two girls were joking back and forth and he assumed they were laughing at him and his daughter.. Now I dont know what actually took place that caused such a commotion.. What I do know is this: ...
With the trend for women to delay childbearing into their 30s and 40s, more parents, and want-to-be grandparents, appear willing to spend their savings to pay for their adult daughters to freeze their eggs, and when necessary, their IVF treatments.

I have just been told my son likely has PANDAS. I knew nothing about it. After reading quite a bit I am putting pieces together. He was given amoxicillin the same day as his MMR when he was 18 months old, for strep, I think... still checking to be certain as it may have been for massive ear infections, if which he had many. Another piece of the family auto immune puzzle is that this same time he regressed into a world of autism. Yet another, I have an adult daughter 15 years older who is on the spectrum. But here is my reason for posting: does anyone know of or has anyone heard of a documented or researched connection to autoimmunity disorders related to infections other than strep? I had recurrent TSS for 25 years and nearly died from sepsis month after month when doctors at a prestigious clinic in Phoenix dismissed it as imaginary. Fortunately, I found a great doctor. Could staph have a similar reaction as strep in people who may develop PANDAS, people who are constantly exposed to it or are ...
Going through a season I never thought in my life I would have to go through - I even wondered if I ever would. We were a normal family with our own ups and downs. Hubby and I getting older, adjusting to an empty nest and fighting our own golden years ailments. Well, now no more wondering. I have joined the club where your adult daughter calls and tells you they have been diagnosed with a possible rare brain disease (Moyamoya). Shock and denial set in along with buckets of tears, anxiety and worry. Doesnt help that we live a days drive away. My devotional time with the Lord has been the strongest its ever been and its a good thing, I dont know what I would do without Him and growing close to Him like I never have before. TRUST has been the key, it hasnt been easy but its a day to day trust. Besides my devotional time in the Word, Im also being blessed with Ruth Choe Simons new devotional called, Gracelaced. She is a painter artist and a gifted writer, I encourage you to get her book. I ...
IF youre like me, you probably regret that the pace of modern life keeps you from staying absolutely current on our nations sordid, tabloid-trash fascination with what other people do with their pee-pees and wee-wees, and so possibly even missed altogether the fact that some Columbia professor managed to get arrested for performing unspecified (and, reportedly, consensual) sexual acts with his adult daughter, acts we can only imagine, over and over and over again while the very fabric of the Republic is rent, tearing, perhaps, like a cheap chemise, with an audible gasp and the sudden exposure of an inviting fecund fullness, the slightly chill air arousing our ardor in these climactic times, energizing our efforts, plunging us repeatedly into the precious honeypot of Liberty, faster, now, and yet faster still, our singular purpose distilled now to a hot white point of light like a thousand suns before it bursts forth, and we roll over and go to sleep ...
Findings from interviews with HIF-infected parents, their minor and adult children, and caregivers suggest that disclosure of HIV status should be done within a family context.
Eva Brown, who coined the acronym ACMI (Adult Children of the Mentally Ill), wrote this book as a supportive and encouraging guide for dealing with the challenging legacy of growing up with a mentally ill parent. Richly peppered with quotes from interviews with ACMIs, My Parents Keeper covers issues ranging from being a parentified child to dealing with unstable aging parents.
Recent evidence suggests that a mothers diet during pregnancy can influence the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in their adult children. Currently my research focuses on determining how this occurs. I speculate that maternal diet during pregnancy can influence gene expression in children through epigenetic processes, defined as heritable changes in gene expression that occur without a change in the DNA sequence of the gene.
When someone wishes me a Happy Mothers Day they have no idea what it means to me; if you have an adult child with mental illness perhaps you can understand
Rachel Allison. One of the many advantages that come with being "grandma age" is that I have figured out my strengths and weaknesses. Im grateful for my strengths, and Im patiently working on my weaknesses. One of my strengths: I dont ignore the elephant in the room. I remember my mom telling me that recognizing the problem and then focusing time, attention, and ingenuity on solutions can resolve 85% of all difficult situations. The most damaging problems are those that are ignored.. 1. Most recently I have watched an aged neighbor and friend as they have prepared to move out of their home. Their age doesnt allow them to help much. They have six adult children, and all six children live nearby. The problem: Only one daughter is helping with the move. She is frustrated and exhausted.. 2. A couple I know is having problems finding time to be alone, communicate, and plan. Their young children have no designated bedtime. These children are often up until 10 or 11 p.m. The problem: The parents ...

Like most of the people who come here to study, life away from Oxford is very busy. Setting aside time to study is just impossible at times. Family, ministry, running a home, being available to meet the needs of young and adult children as well as elderly family takes its toll. The last time I came to Oxford I was dealing with the sickness of my father. My whole world seemed in turmoil. I was rushing between Oxford and the hospital in London. Speaking what seemed a foreign language of medical terminology with medical staff and dealing with multiple generations, languages and cultures of my family on 3 continents was exhausting, frustrating and seemingly endless. On the day after my dad died there was a sudden stillness. Everything stopped.. I had nowhere to be and no one to belong to, so I went to OCMS chapel. Overwhelmed by grief and the feeling of being orphaned and far from my siblings and children I found I had another family of scholars and staff from all over the world. Once again multiple ...

PUBLISHED: November 18, 2019. Assembly Bill 68, entitled "Land Use: Accessory Dwelling Units," is one of the new housing bills that Gov. Newsom recently signed. It is an example of the State Legislatures poor planning.. This detrimental bill eliminates single family zoning and enables the transformation of beneficial accessory dwelling units (second units and granny flats) into overcrowded multifamily triplexes with potentially multiple adverse impacts.. There are various advantages to adding an accessory dwelling unit or second unit to a home. For homeowners, the extra unit can provide additional income, support family members such as adult children or aging parents and house on-site caregivers. In addition, the units sometimes provide additional affordable housing for low income residents, although this is not guaranteed. When local jurisdictions craft careful accessory dwelling unit ordinances, these second units can fit seamlessly into an established community.. Unfortunately, by stripping ...
This article originally appeared on Kaiser Health News. House Republicans unveiled their much anticipated health law replacement plan Monday, slashing the laws Medicaid expansion and scrapping the requirement that individuals purchase coverage or pay a fine. But they opted to continue providing tax credits to encourage consumers to purchase coverage, although they would configure the program much differently than the current law.. The legislation would keep the health laws provisions allowing adult children to stay on their parents health insurance plan until age 26 and prohibiting insurers from charging people with preexisting medical conditions more for coverage as long as they dont let their insurance lapse. If they do, insurers can charge a flat 30 percent late-enrollment surcharge on top of the base premium, under the Republican bill.. RELATED: How to Tell If Youre Not Getting Enough Sleep. In a statement, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said the proposal would "drive down costs, ...
ApoE4 testing is a sticky issue because either a positive or negative result is fraught with uncertainty. As a genetic marker, ApoE4 is neither necessary nor sufficient for developing AD, which means that a person with the high risk variant may never get the illness, and conversely, one lacking the liability may still come down with the disease. On top of that, there is currently no effective treatment or reliable prevention. As author Farrer puts it, "The test has a predictive value issue, and then you have layered on top of that the question of what is the benefit of having the information.". The REVEAL study did not aim to answer that question, but instead focused on the issue of whether it was harmful to people to know their ApoE4 status. The investigators adopted a randomized clinical trial design, starting with subjects with a familial history of AD in order to enrich their sample for ApoE4 carriers. They first genotyped 162 asymptomatic adult children of parents with AD and then ...
