Vitamin D status in different subgroups of British Asians. (1/2333)

To assess the effect of religious dietary practices and social customs on the vitamin D status of Asian immigrants, we kept records of the dietary intake and time spent out of doors of 81 Ugandan Asian men, women, and girls (9-19 years old). Sera were analysed for 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OHD3), and 28% of the subjects were found to have levels below the lower limit of normal. The (vegetarian) Hindus had the lowest dietary intakes, least time out of doors, and lowest serum 25-OHD3. The Goan (Roman Catholic) Asians, despite more pigmentation, had 25-OHD3 levels similar to those found among indigenous British people and had the most satisfactory vitamin D intakes. Among Asians, whose exposure to sunlight may be limited, dietary vitamin D becomes the major determinant of serum 25-OHD3.  (+info)

Novel endotheliotropic herpesviruses fatal for Asian and African elephants. (2/2333)

A highly fatal hemorrhagic disease has been identified in 10 young Asian and African elephants at North American zoos. In the affected animals there was ultrastructural evidence for herpesvirus-like particles in endothelial cells of the heart, liver, and tongue. Consensus primer polymerase chain reaction combined with sequencing yielded molecular evidence that confirmed the presence of two novel but related herpesviruses associated with the disease, one in Asian elephants and another in African elephants. Otherwise healthy African elephants with external herpetic lesions yielded herpesvirus sequences identical to that found in Asian elephants with endothelial disease. This finding suggests that the Asian elephant deaths were caused by cross-species infection with a herpesvirus that is naturally latent in, but normally not lethal to, African elephants. A reciprocal relationship may exist for the African elephant disease.  (+info)

Obstetric and neonatal outcome following chronic hypertension in pregnancy among different ethnic groups. (3/2333)

We retrospectively studied pre-eclampsia rate and obstetric outcome in a cohort of 436 pregnancies amongst 318 women of different ethnic backgrounds attending an antenatal hypertension clinic from 1980-1997, identifying 152 women (213 pregnancies) with chronic essential hypertension. The ethnic breakdown was: White, 64 (30.0%) pregnancies in 48 (31.5%) women; Black/Afro-Caribbean, 79 (37.1%) pregnancies in 56 (36.8%) women; and Indo-Asians, 70 (32.3%) pregnancies in 48 (31.6%) women. The prevalences of pre-eclampsia in White, Black and Indo-Asian women were 17.2%, 12.7% and 18.6%, respectively (p = 0.58). Pregnancies of Indo-Asian women were of shorter gestation, and babies in this group also had lower birth weight and ponderal index compared to those of White and Black women (all p < 0.05). The proportions of overall perinatal mortality were 1.6% for Whites (1/64), 3.8% for Blacks (3/79) and 10.0% for Indo-Asians (7/70), suggesting increased risk in the Indo-Asian group. Indo-Asian women with chronic essential hypertension need careful antenatal care and observation during pregnancy.  (+info)

Biochemical indices of osteomalacia in pregnant Asian immigrants in Britain. (4/2333)

Serum calcium, phosphate and alkaline phosphatase, and urinary calcium excretion were examined during the second trimester of uncomplicated normal pregnancy in Asian immigrants to Britain and in local Caucasians. The mean serum calcium was significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians, and the mean serum alkaline phosphatase was significantly higher in Asians. The geometric mean of the urinary calcium excretion was highly significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians. The variances of the serum calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase, and urine calcium excretion did not differ significantly in the two populations. This indicates that there is a shift in values of immigrant Asians as a group compared with Caucasians. A comparison with figures obtained on normal nonpregnant persons of both suggests that the shift is not an inherent feature of the Asian population.  (+info)

Biodiversity of Lactococcus garvieae strains isolated from fish in Europe, Asia, and Australia. (5/2333)

Lactococcus garvieae (junior synonym, Enterococcus seriolicida) is a major pathogen of fish, producing fatal septicemia among fish species living in very diverse environments. The phenotypic traits of L. garvieae strains collected from three different continents (Asia, Europe, and Australia) indicated phenotypic heterogeneity. On the basis of the acidification of D-tagatose and sucrose, three biotypes were defined. DNA relatedness values and a specific PCR assay showed that all the biotypes belonged to the same genospecies, L. garvieae. All of the L. garvieae strains were serotyped as Lancefield group N. Ribotyping proved that one clone was found both in Japan, where it probably originated, and in Italy, where it was probably imported. PCR of environmental samples did not reveal the source of the contamination of the fish in Italy. Specific clones (ribotypes) were found in outbreaks in Spain and in Italy. The L. garvieae reference strain, isolated in the United Kingdom from a cow, belonged to a unique ribotype. L. garvieae is a rising zoonotic agent. The biotyping scheme, the ribotyping analysis, and the PCR assay described in this work allowed the proper identification of L. garvieae and the description of the origin and of the source of contamination of strains involved in outbreaks or in sporadic cases.  (+info)

Ancestral Asian source(s) of new world Y-chromosome founder haplotypes. (6/2333)

Haplotypes constructed from Y-chromosome markers were used to trace the origins of Native Americans. Our sample consisted of 2,198 males from 60 global populations, including 19 Native American and 15 indigenous North Asian groups. A set of 12 biallelic polymorphisms gave rise to 14 unique Y-chromosome haplotypes that were unevenly distributed among the populations. Combining multiallelic variation at two Y-linked microsatellites (DYS19 and DXYS156Y) with the unique haplotypes results in a total of 95 combination haplotypes. Contra previous findings based on Y- chromosome data, our new results suggest the possibility of more than one Native American paternal founder haplotype. We postulate that, of the nine unique haplotypes found in Native Americans, haplotypes 1C and 1F are the best candidates for major New World founder haplotypes, whereas haplotypes 1B, 1I, and 1U may either be founder haplotypes and/or have arrived in the New World via recent admixture. Two of the other four haplotypes (YAP+ haplotypes 4 and 5) are probably present because of post-Columbian admixture, whereas haplotype 1G may have originated in the New World, and the Old World source of the final New World haplotype (1D) remains unresolved. The contrasting distribution patterns of the two major candidate founder haplotypes in Asia and the New World, as well as the results of a nested cladistic analysis, suggest the possibility of more than one paternal migration from the general region of Lake Baikal to the Americas.  (+info)

The transmyocardial laser revascularization international registry report. (7/2333)

AIMS: This report aimed to provide an analysis of the data submitted from Europe and Asia on transmyocardial laser revascularization. METHODS AND RESULTS: Prospective data was recorded on 967 patients with intractable angina not amenable to conventional revascularization in 21 European and Asian centres performing transmyocardial laser revascularization using the PLC Medical Systems CO2 laser. Patient characteristics, operative details and early complications following transmyocardial laser revascularization were recorded. The in-hospital death rate was 9.7% (95% confidence interval 7.8% to 11.6%). Other early complications were consistent with similar cardiothoracic surgical procedures. There was a decrease of two or more Canadian Cardiovascular Score angina classes in 47.3%, 45.4% and 34.0% of survivors at 3, 6 and 12 months follow-up, respectively (P=0.001 for each). Treadmill exercise time increased by 42 s at 3 months (P=0.008), 1 min 43 s at 6 months (P<0.001) and 1 min 50 s at 12 months (P<0.001) against pre-operative times of 6 min. CONCLUSION: Uncontrolled registry data suggest that transmyocardial laser revascularization may lead to a decrease in angina and improved exercise tolerance. It does, however, have a risk of peri-operative morbidity and mortality. Definitive results from randomized controlled trials are awaited.  (+info)

Molecular evolution of swine vesicular disease virus. (8/2333)

Phylogenetic analysis was used to examine the evolutionary relationships within a group of coxsackie B viruses that contained representatives of the major serotypes of this group and 45 isolates of swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV) from Asia and Europe. Separate analyses of sequence data from two regions of the viral genomes encoding the VP1 and 3BC genes both revealed that the SVDV belonged to a single monophyletic group which could be clearly distinguished from all other sampled coxsackieviruses. Regression analysis revealed that within the SVDV clade at least 80% of the synonymous variation in evolutionary divergence between isolates was explained by time, indicating the existence of an approximate molecular clock. Calibration of this clock according to synonymous substitutions per year indicated the date of occurrence of a common ancestor for the SVDV clade to be between 1945 and 1965.  (+info)

Results WC increased with age for both sexes, rising more steeply at the upper centiles after the age of 6 years. Overall, UK South Asian children, similar to indigenous South Asian populations, had higher WC values than the British WC references. However, compared with their UK white peers, UK South Asian children had significantly (p,0.001) lower mean WC (UK white SDS=0.74 and SDS=0.64 vs UK South Asian SDS=0.32 and SDS=0.21 for boys and girls, respectively). Obesity prevalence was greater using WC than BMI for both ethnicities. At the 90th centile, for UK South Asian children, prevalence was 21.5% vs 24.4% for boys and 17% vs 24.5% for girls based on BMI and WC, respectively. ...
Introduction Chronic HBV (cHBV) and HCV (cHCV) are frequent causes of cirrhosis and liver cancer. cHBV and cHCV are prevalent in subjects from South Asian countries and many infected individuals are unaware of their condition. A previous case finding pilot for HBV in the British-Chinese community of the NE of England found that 9% of subjects tested were HBsAg positive.1 Targeted screening for HBV and HCV is recommended by the AASLD2 and the European Liver Patients Association3 in subjects born in endemic areas (HBsAg prevalence ≥2%). However, there are no current UK guidelines. Our aim was to apply AASLD recommendations to British South Asian community of NE of England. ...

INTRODUCTION: Low vitamin D status is prevalent among South Asians living in the UK. The relationship, however, between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D level (25OHD), serum parathyroid level (PTH) and bone mass in this group of women is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the association between serum PTH, 25OHD and bone mass in a population based sample of young UK South Asian women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Names of South Asian women aged 18 to 36 years of Pakistani origin living in the Greater Manchester area were identified from primary care registers using validated computer software. Subjects were invited to attend for (i) a blood test for assessment of serum calcium (Ca), albumin, PTH and 25OHD and (ii) for bone mineral density (BMD) scanning using the following: areal BMD at the hip (femoral neck, total hip) and lumbar spine using dual X-ray absorptiometry (Hologic QDR 4500), and volumetric BMD at the distal radius using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (Norland Stratec XCT 2000).

People in the UK from south Asian communities are about twice as likely to develop diabetes compared with people from white European backgrounds. South Asian people are also more likely to develop diabetes at a younger age.. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is also more common in south Asian people, as is the risk of dying early from CHD. Experts arent sure why this is the case, but it may be linked to diet, lifestyle and different ways of storing fat in the body. ...

In 2010, Meador et al. published a report on the neurological development of children breastfed by mothers with epilepsy. Eighty four breastfed newborns were assessed for 3 to 24 months (average of 6 months) compared with 115 non-breastfed newborns. The results showed that at 3 years of age, the average IQ in the breastfed group was 99 compared to 98 in the non-breastfed group. The conclusion was that in the study assessing the intelligence quotient in children of mothers with epilepsy taking AEDs and breastfeeding their children, at the age of 3, no negative effects of drugs such as CBZ, LTG, PHT or VPA used during breastfeeding were found. Considering the fact that the intelligence quotient at the age of 6 allows better prediction of school results, the impact of the exposure to AED through ...
Inappropriate use and overuse of antibiotics are among the most important factors in resistance development, and effective antibiotic stewardship measures are needed to optimize outcomes.
The principal function of NILTs is to identify patients with high probability of having advanced fibrosis at the time of testing. Currently, decisions such as management in primary or secondary care or consideration for clinical trials are largely based on the results of these NILTs. As with any clinical test, there is a danger that if applied or interpreted inappropriately, wrong decisions can be made and, ultimately, harm may come to a patient. Despite the relatively small sample size, our data show that the sensitivity of commonly used NILTs is lower in patients of South Asian ethnicity suggesting that large numbers of South Asian patients may be inappropriately reassured that they do not have advanced disease. We recorded self-reported ethnicity and not first or subsequent generation immigration. Nevertheless, our data suggest that NASH may be more aggressive in South Asian patients who are almost a decade younger, have lower BMI and less severe BMI category than white patients with ...
When the South Asia Development Marketplace for innovative ideas to tackle stigma and discrimination relating to HIV/AIDS was launched in November 2007 by the HIV/AIDS Group in the South Asia Region of the World Bank and its partners, civil society groups across South Asia sent in almost a thousand proposals. People fear HIV/AIDS because of the association with sex, drugs, illness, and death. In South Asia, the epidemic is driven largely by high risk practices - buying and selling sex, injecting drugs, and unprotected sex among men having sex with men. This compounds the fear and stigma around HIV/AIDS, as sex workers, injecting drug users, and men having sex with men are already stigmatized.
The short answer is yes, although not immediately, and not inevitably. My reasons for an affirmative answer are partly demographic and partly economic. Asia has a large fraction of the worlds population, and their biggest economies are generally experiencing rapid growth as they narrow the gap in living standards with the West. To start with the demographics, about 4 billion persons, or almost 60% of the worlds population, live in Asia. India and China alone have about 2 ¬Ω billion individuals. Other Asian countries with populations in excess of 100 million are Japan, Indonesia, Pakistan and Bangladesh, while Vietnam and...
Ki67 Immunohistochemistry. Uncontrolled proliferation is a hallmark of cancer. In breast cancer, the most widely practiced method for comparing proliferation between tumor samples involves the immunohistochemical assessment of Ki67 antigen (also known as antigen identified by monoclonal antibody Ki-67 [MKI67]), a nuclear marker expressed in all phases of the cell cycle other than the G0 phase. Potential uses include prognosis, prediction of relative responsiveness or resistance to chemotherapy or endocrine therapy, estimation of residual risk in patients on standard therapy and as a dynamic biomarker of treatment efficacy in samples taken before, during, and after neoadjuvant therapy, particularly neoadjuvant endocrine therapy. Increasingly, Ki67 is measured in these scenarios for clinical research, including as a primary efficacy endpoint for clinical trials, and sometimes for clinical management.. Reference: Dowsett M, Nielsen TO, AHern R et al. Assessment of Ki67 in breast cancer: ...
The current study aimed to explore some important insights into the breast cancer mortality (BCM) trends and projections among four Asian countries by using five advanced stochastic mortality models. BCM data over 28 years from 1990-2017 with ages 20-84 were retrieved from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study 2017 for four Asian countries, namely, China, India, Pakistan, and Thailand. Five stochastic mortality models with the family of generalized age-period-cohort were implemented to find the present and future BCM trends in these four Asian countries. Based on Cairns-Blake-Dowd (CBD) model and Lee-Carter model (LCM), overall, results revealed that BCM increased with the passage of time. Aging factor was the most influential factor of elevated BCM in each Asian country under consideration. Projection of BCM showed that mortality rates might continue to grow with time, especially in older ages in each Asian country under study. The highest forecasted BCM rates were observed in Pakistan as compared

Malcolm Williams, a Rand Corp. health policy researcher, said another reason for the insurance gap could be the fear of revealing personal information to the government on health insurance applications if some family members are undocumented.. Asians, on the other hand, have had a smoother path to immigration over the decades. Many have been sponsored for immigration by relatives in the U.S., or have education, employment or investment ties here that eased their quest for American citizenship. As a result, theyve been able to start assimilating more quickly than many Latinos.. Henry Liem, a philosophy professor at San Jose City College and longtime observer of the South Bays Vietnamese emigre community, said that when many immigrants were growing up in Vietnam and other Asian countries, the only way to receive government services was to pay a bribe.. But in America, he said, Asians have learned to embrace government programs that they view as nondiscriminatory, low-cost and reliable. Liem also ...

Fifty percent of patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Asia failed to achieve treatment goals mainly because they did not stick to medication, according to the largest Pan-Asian survey CEPHEUS. Findings of the survey were released at 2009 Asia-Pacific CV Summit held here Saturday, which brought together medical professionals from the region in the field of CVD treatment. CEPHEUS, conducted by leading cardiologists in Asia, is to evaluate the current treatment status of hypercholesterolemia (high levels of cholesterol in blood). Elevated cholesterol level is a key risk factor for CVD. CEPHEUS surveyed over 7,000 patients and doctors in Asia Pacific region. Nearly 44.1 percent of patients said they sometimes forgot to take tablets, and one in four patients thought it is OK to miss medication. Jeong Euy Park, Professor of Medicine at Sungkyunkwan University, Republic of Korea, and Asian lead investigator for CEPHEUS, said Patients are not aware that sticking to medication is the best way ...

The world economy today presents itself as a diverse canvas full of challenges and opportunities. Advanced economies continue to struggle towards recovery, with the US on its way to tighten monetary policy as the economy picks up while a still weak Eurozone awaits quantitative easing to kick in. At the same time, plunging oil prices have set in motion significant real income shifts from exporters to importers of oil. Astonishingly, amidst all this turmoil, South Asia has emerged as the fastest growing region in the world over the second half of 2014. Led by a strong India, South Asia is set to further accelerate from 7 percent real growth in 2015 to 7.6 percent by 2017, leaving behind a slowing East Asia gradually landed in second spot by China ...
OTTAWA - Brampton Centre MP Ramesh Sangha has been kicked out of the Liberal caucus for allegedly levelling unsubstantiated accusations against fellow Liberal MPs.Government whip Mark Holland said in a statement Monday he was made aware late last week that Sangha had made baseless and dangerous accusations against a number of his caucus colleagues.Holland did not specify what those accusations entailed.But Sangha last week gave a Punjabi-language interview to Y Media, a streaming news channel for the South Asian community in Canada, in which he criticized Liberal MP Navdeep Bains and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, both of whom are Sikhs.In that interview, Sangha suggested Bains and Sajjan are both Khalistani extremists who support the creation of an independent Sikh homeland, known as Khalistan, in the Punjab region of India.

MsCaroline has no idea which, if any of these are true - her family, like most expats, flushes, and has had no problems. However, after almost 3 years back in Asia, she has seen any number of toilet arrangements throughout the region: squat toilets, toilets that include buckets of water next to them for manual flushing, toilets with no paper anywhere around them, toilets with overflowing paper bins (her least favorite) toilets with no doors, unisex toilets where one casually strolls past the gent standing at the urinal on ones way into the stall, toilets with hoses lying on the ground (presumably for both flushing and cleaning oneself.) On the other side of the coin, some of the public toilets she has run across in Asia are more luxurious than anything she will ever have in her home, and include things like automated air fresheners, privacy bells (masking sounds for the timid,) bidets, heated seats (not unlike the Ass-blaster 9000 in the Asia Vus first apartment), and lovely family ...

After lots of online research and advice from friends, I thought I was as prepared for Asia as I could be. Here are some of the best hints and tips I would recommend for anyone thinking about travelling to Asia.. So…. DONT TRAVEL TO ASIA WITHOUT…. 1. Learning to squat (especially girls). I am not only recommending this one because am a bit of a fitness freak, but I actually think that if you build up a bit of leg strength before coming out to Asia, youll thank me for it after! Carrying a big heavy rucksack around in 30 degree heat is no easy task, climbing up 1000s of stairs at the temples in 30 degree heat, again, no easy task! Also in particular girls, as horrible as it is, when having to use some of the toilets out in Asia, you are going to want the be able to hold a squat!. 2. Learning to be blunt. Tuc-tuc drivers, taxi drivers, market stalls sellers, street food sellers are all out to try sell to you as you walk pass in the streets. If you show even the slightest hesitation before ...
The hominin record from southern Asia for the early Late Pleistocene epoch is scarce. Well-dated and well-preserved fossils older than ~45,000 years that can be unequivocally attributed to Homo sapiens are lacking. Here we present evidence from the newly excavated Fuyan Cave in Daoxian (southern China). This site has provided 47 human teeth dated to more than 80,000 years old, and with an inferred maximum age of 120,000 years. The morphological and metric assessment of this sample supports its unequivocal assignment to H. sapiens. The Daoxian sample is more derived than any other anatomically modern humans, resembling middle-to-late Late Pleistocene specimens and even contemporary humans. Our study shows that fully modern morphologies were present in southern China 30,000-70,000 years earlier than in the Levant and Europe. Our data fill a chronological and geographical gap that is relevant for understanding when H. sapiens first appeared in southern Asia. The Daoxian teeth also support the ...

BACKGROUND: As the epidemic of Zika virus expands in the Americas, countries across Africa and the Asia-Pacific region are becoming increasingly susceptible to the importation and possible local spread of the virus. To support public health readiness, we aim to identify regions and times where the potential health, economic, and social effects from Zika virus are greatest, focusing on resource-limited countries in Africa and the Asia-Pacific region. METHODS: Our model combined transportation network analysis, ecological modelling of mosquito occurrences, and vector competence for flavivirus transmission, using data from the International Air Transport Association, entomological observations from Zikas primary vector species, and climate conditions using WorldClim. We overlaid monthly flows of airline travellers arriving to Africa and the Asia-Pacific region from areas of the Americas suitable for year-round transmission of Zika virus with monthly maps of climatic suitability for mosquito-borne

On 22 July 2016, a side event, co-organized by FAO, the Asia-Pacific Network for Sustainable Forest Management and Rehabilitation (APFNet), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the World Resource Institute (WRI), was held during the 23rd Session of the Committee on Forestry (COFO 23) at FAO Headquarters to discuss the draft Strategy and Action Plan on Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) in the Asia-Pacific region.. This draft Strategy and Action Plan was developed by FAO, together with key partners and in close consultation with countries, agencies and experts in the region, based on the recommendations from the 26th session of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) held in February 2016. The meeting was chaired by Mr. Marcial C. Amaro Jr., Assistant Secretary of Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the Philippines, and chair of the 26th APFC session.. APFNet and ASEAN-ROK Forest Cooperation (AFoCo), two active organizations in the region working on ...
The key findings of this analysis of RE-LY are that the effects of dabigatran against stroke and SE are similar in Asian and non-Asian patients for both doses of dabigatran compared with warfarin. The second key finding is that although Asian patients on warfarin had considerably more time below therapeutic range and were younger, there was a trend for more bleeding in Asian than in non-Asian patients. For total bleeding and for hemorrhagic stroke, the rates in Asian patients on warfarin were significantly higher than in non-Asians. Finally, for total bleeding there was a statistically significant interaction between treatment and region (Asian versus non-Asian) indicating that dabigatran reduced the risk of bleeding outcomes more in Asians than in non-Asians.. The rates of all bleeding outcomes (major, gastrointestinal major, life-threatening major, minor, total, intracranial, and hemorrhagic stroke) on warfarin were numerically higher in Asians than non-Asians (Tables 3 and 4). This may be ...
South Asian populations are the largest visible minority group in Canada; however, there is very little information on the mental health of these populations. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence rates and characteristics of mental health outcomes for South Asian first-generation immigrant and second-generation Canadian-born populations. The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) 2011 was used to calculate the estimated prevalence rates of the following mental health outcomes: mood disorders, anxiety disorders, fair-poor self-perceived mental health status, and extremely stressful life stress. The characteristics associated with these four mental health outcomes were determined through multivariate logistic regression analysis of merged CCHS 2007-2011 data. South Asian Canadian-born (3.5%, 95% CI 3.4-3.6%) and South Asian immigrant populations (3.5%, 95% CI 3.5-3.5%) did not vary significantly in estimated prevalence rates of mood disorders. However, South Asian immigrants

Mr Chairman, excellencies, ladies and gentlemen. It gives me great pleasure to take part in this event. The theme, Achieving the MDGs in Asia-Pacific through Partnership is highly significant and timely as we approach the UN Summit on MDGs in September 2010.. Partnerships have been a cornerstone of strategies, policies and programmes adopted to achieve the MDGs. The global and regional partnerships enshrined in the MDG-8 call on developed countries, multilateral donors, and the private sector to assist developing countries through development finance, market access, technology, knowledge sharing, and other resources as they focus their policies on achieving MDG 1 to 7. In the dynamic Asia-Pacific region, these partnerships at the regional level have a great potential. With the increasing recognition of the regional interdependence first highlighted by the 1997 Asian financial crisis, numerous regional partnerships have been formed in the Asia-Pacific region and deepened. This is reflected in ...
The use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in commerce improves the commercial structure and economic capacity of a country. This study empirically assesses the impact of ICTs on international trade in 36 countries in Asia and the Pacific, at the sectoral level, between 2007 and 2018. The study evaluates whether ICTs improve international trade by hiring the gravity model of international trade and increasing it with the ICT variable. An ICT development indicator (IDI) is formed by joining seven different ICT variables that show ICT infrastructure, use, and skills. Using the Poisson pseudo-maximum likelihood (PPML) estimation technique, this study shows that ICTs improve trade by reducing transaction costs. The findings reveal that information and communication technology positively and significantly influence international trade in all sectors of the Asia-Pacific region, and that trade intensifies when both trading partners have a high endowment of information and ...

Background: People of South Asian origin are at high risk of chronic kidney disease. Some have suggested that the usual level of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in South Asians may be lower than in populations of European origin. However, measured GFR in a general adult population of South Asian origin has not been studied. Design: Cross-sectional observational study. Setting & Participants: 530 Patients 40 years or older randomly selected from communities in Karachi, Pakistan, using multistage cluster sampling. Patients with both diabetes and hypertension were excluded. Predictor: Age, sex, diabetes, and hypertension. Outcome: Measured GFR using urinary clearance of inulin. Results: Mean age of participants was 49.7 +/- 9.5 (standard deviation [SD]) years, 51% were men, 34.9% had hypertension, and 30.5% had diabetes. Mean measured GFR was 94.1 +/- 28.6 mL/min/1.73 m(2). GFR was lower by 0.79 +/- 0.11 mL/min/1.73 m(2) for each 1-year older age. The 5-year age- and sex-specific mean GFR of the study

The results displayed on the NCBI dbGaP include all autosomal SNPs, regardless of genotyping call rate, HWE p-value or MAF; adjustable filters for these factors are provided. In our manuscripts, we present results for SNPs that satisfy genotyping call rates ≥ 80%, HWE p-value ≥ 0.001, and MAF ≥ 10%. The proportion of SNPs satisfying a genotyping call rate of ≥80% is 97.4%; 91% of SNPs satisfied a call rate of ≥90%.. We expect only a small percentage of all tested SNPs to be truly associated with any phenotype. Therefore, to obtain an approximation of the null distribution of p-values, we examined the distribution of p-values for 415 phenotypes from the Metabolic Working Group and 14 CVD event phenotypes. If one assumes that only a few true associations exist for each phenotype, these p-value distributions approximate the null distribution, because only a few SNPs out of the large total number tested would be ...

A Broad and Complex Perspective of the Asian Region The architecture of the Asian region has gradually changed during the past three decades. From a region that was based on and influenced by bilateral alliances, it has become a multilateral region with an increasing number of institutions that play an important role in Asia. These institutions include Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Korean Energy Development Organization (KEDO), ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Six Party Talks, and others. The changing interactions in Asia raise important questions that this edited volume deals with: What is the vision of the changing face of Asia? What attitudes do the Asian nations have toward the new multilateral environment? How do they envision the role of the international organizations in the region, regionalism in Asia, and the Asian community, and what are their assumptions toward the U.S. role in Asia? These ...
Primordial prevention involves prevention of risk factors themselves. Across world regions, risk factors for HF vary greatly, with CAD most prevalent in Europe and North America, hypertension prevalence highest in Eastern and Central Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, and cardiomyopathy and rheumatic heart disease most common in Latin America, the Caribbean and sub-Saharan Africa,8 and therefore primordial prevention strategies for HF will vary greatly by region and ethnicity. High rates of diabetes and hypertension in South Asian communities at country or community level suggest that prevention might vary based on the ethnic diversity of the target population, necessitating context-specific research in ethnic minorities. In the Leicestershire study, the young age of South Asians undergoing ICD implant signals the need for greater primordial prevention. There is a complicated interplay between ethnicity and other social determinants of health, such as socioeconomic status and demographic factors. ...
Pardeep Mor earned a penalty corner in the 13th minute and Harmanpreet came up with a grounder to beat Ali on the latters right to give the 1-0 crucial lead.. India, having scored the opening goal, seemed to ease their nerves and they played smooth and fluent hockey thereafter. The way they did the build-up play through the back and midfield unsettled Pakistan and the latter ran out of patience.. It resulted in two quick field goals through Talwinder in the 21st and 24th minutes. The first one was a brilliant team goal, as a Mandeeps cut-back from the left byline to S.V. Sunil, stationed in front of the goal, saw him drive the ball to a waiting and unmarked Talwinder at the far post, who just had to tap it in. Three minutes later, Talwinder dinked past goalkeeper Ali from the right to make it 3-0.. Harmanpreets second goal, an unchallenged drag-flick three minutes after the half-time break, gave India a handsome 4-0 lead, putting the game beyond doubt.. Trailing by four goals, Pakistan showed ...

In the past decade, tensions in Asia have risen as Beijing has become more assertive in maritime disputes with its neighbors and the United States. Regional leaders have expressed concern that Chinese gray zone coercion threatens to destabilize the region by undermining the rules-based order and increasing the risk of conflict. Yet, despite the threat posed to regional security and prosperity, the United States and its allies and partners in East Asia have struggled to develop effective counters to maritime coercion. The inability of U.S. policymakers to deter coercive actions or to articulate a coherent gray zone strategy has raised questions about Washingtons ability to protect U.S. interests, to integrate China into the international order, and to maintain existing alliance commitments. As a result, experts in the United States and in East Asia are searching for new approaches to counter coercion in the East and South China Seas.. A new CSIS study, Countering Coercion in Maritime Asia: The ...
Low social position and South Asian ethnicity are both associated with increased risk of dying from coronary heart disease,1 2 but the impact of differential access to medical care on these inequalities remains uncertain. If access to coronary management matched coronary incidence, then low social position and South Asian ethnicity would be associated with higher rates of use. For social position, most studies,3-10 but not all,11-13 find the opposite-high social deprivation is associated with lower rates of coronary angiography and revascularisation. Several studies, mainly small and retrospective, report less aggressive treatment of South Asian people with coronary disease compared with white patients.14-22 Such potential healthcare disparities have stimulated calls in the United States and United Kingdom for remedial action.23 24. Three interrelated questions remain unanswered. Firstly, in a general population that exhibits social and ethnic differences in rates of coronary heart disease, do ...
Building on two decades of engagement with Southeast Asia, the OECD Southeast Asia Regional Programme aims to bring the relationship to a new and more strategic level, providing a whole-of-government approach to countries in the region. The Programme fosters the exchange of good practices and mutual learning among policy makers in OECD and Southeast Asian countries. The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Blueprint 2025, launched during the 27th ASEAN Summit in November 2015, specifically mentions the OECD as one of the institutions for strategic collaboration. It envisages a highly integrated, cohesive, competitive, innovative and dynamic Southeast Asia, with enhanced connectivity and integrated into the global economy. In addition, the Programme works with Southeast Asia in strong partnerships and complementarity with several regional organisations. These regional partners include the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Asian Development ...

Aerosol radiative effects and thermodynamic responses over South Asia are examined with the Weather Research and Forecasting model coupled with Chemistry (WRF-Chem) for March 2012. Model results of aerosol optical depths (AODs) and extinction profiles are analyzed and compared to satellite retrievals and two ground-based lidars located in northern India. The WRF-Chem model is found to heavily underestimate the AOD during the simulated pre-monsoon month and about 83 % of the models low bias is due to aerosol extinctions below ~2 km. Doubling the calculated aerosol extinctions below 850 hPa generates much better agreement with the observed AOD and extinction profiles averaged over South Asia. To separate the effect of absorption and scattering properties, two runs were conducted: in one run (Case I), the calculated scattering and absorption coefficients were increased proportionally, while in the second run (Case II) only the calculated aerosol scattering coefficient was increased. With the same ...
Fifteen years after the Millennium Development Goals were launched, Asias results for goals 4 and 5 - reducing child mortality and maternal health - are mixed. According to UN figures, the mortality rate for children under five in South-Eastern Asia dropped from 71 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1990 to 30 in 2012. And while maternal mortality has decreased in Asia, Southern Asia still accounted for 24% of all maternal deaths in 2013 and only 51% of deliveries in Eastern Asia were attended by health professionals.. These regional numbers obscure local differences. While Indonesia, for example, has earned praise for its successful birth control policies, maternal mortality has increased from 227 per 100,000 life births to 359 between 2007 and 2012. This rise is in part due to lack of funding and lack of health care services, which is hard to organize in an archipelago of more than 18,000 islands. Therefore, an integrated whole-country approach which addresses disparity between regions, ...
Not that there is nothing to celebrate about, with Cambodia, India, Myanmar and Thailand reducing their HIV infection rates significantly, and Cambodia being one of the just 8 countries of the world providing antiretroviral therapy to more than 80% of the people eligible for it. But still more than 60% of the people of this region who are eligible for treatment are unable to access it. Then again, although there is an estimated 15% decrease in new HIV infections among children, regional coverage of services to prevent new infections in children lags behind global averages, especially in South Asia ...
