Eligibility and response guidelines for phase II clinical trials in androgen-independent prostate cancer: recommendations from the Prostate-Specific Antigen Working Group. (1/25)

PURPOSE: Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein that is found almost exclusively in normal and neoplastic prostate cells. For patients with metastatic disease, changes in PSA will often antedate changes in bone scan. Furthermore, many but not all investigators have observed an association between a decline in PSA levels of 50% or greater and survival. Since the majority of phase II clinical trials for patients with androgen-independent prostate cancer (AIPC) have used PSA as a marker, we believed it was important for investigators to agree on definitions and values for a minimum set of parameters for eligibility and PSA declines and to develop a common approach to outcome analysis and reporting. We held a consensus conference with 26 leading investigators in the field of AIPC to define these parameters. RESULT: We defined four patient groups: (1) progressive measurable disease, (2) progressive bone metastasis, (3) stable metastases and a rising PSA, and (4) rising PSA and no other evidence of metastatic disease. The purpose of determining the number of patients whose PSA level drops in a phase II trial of AIPC is to guide the selection of agents for further testing and phase III trials. We propose that investigators report at a minimum a PSA decline of at least 50% and this must be confirmed by a second PSA value 4 or more weeks later. Patients may not demonstrate clinical or radiographic evidence of disease progression during this time period. Some investigators may want to report additional measures of PSA changes (ie, 75% decline, 90% decline). Response duration and the time to PSA progression may also be important clinical end point. CONCLUSION: Through this consensus conference, we believe we have developed practical guidelines for using PSA as a measurement of outcome. Furthermore, the use of common standards is important as we determine which agents should progress to randomized trials which will use survival as an end point.  (+info)

Prevention of recurrent nephrolithiasis. (2/25)

The first episode of nephrolithiasis provides an opportunity to advise patients about measures for preventing future stones. Low fluid intake and excessive intake of protein, salt and oxalate are important modifiable risk factors for kidney stones. Calcium restriction is not useful and may potentiate osteoporosis. Diseases such as hyperparathyroidism, sarcoidosis and renal tubular acidosis should be considered in patients with nephrolithiasis. A 24-hour urine collection with measurement of the important analytes is usually reserved for use in patients with recurrent stone formation. In these patients, the major urinary risk factors include hypercalciuria, hyperoxaluria, hypocitraturia and hyperuricosuria. Effective preventive and treatment measures include thiazide therapy to lower the urinary calcium level, citrate supplementation to increase the urinary citrate level and, sometimes, allopurinol therapy to lower uric acid excretion. Uric acid stones are most often treated with citrate supplementation. Data now support the cost-effectiveness of evaluation and treatment of patients with recurrent stones.  (+info)

US-Japan workshops in medical mycology: past, present and future. (3/25)

The Extramural Mycology Program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has organized and implemented a five workshop series in medical mycology during a critical period in the evolution of contemporary medical mycology (1992 to 2000; http://www.niaid.nih.gov/research/dmid.htm). The goals of the workshop series were to: initiate interactions; build collaborations; identify research needs; turn needs into opportunities; stimulate molecular research in medical mycology; and summarize recommendations emerging from the workshop proceedings. A recurring recommendation in the series was to foster communications within and beyond the field of medical mycology. US-Japan interactions were noted as one specific example of potential information exchange for mutual benefit. The first formal action directed at this recommendation was the workshop Emergence and Recognition of Fungal Diseases convened under the auspices of the US-Japan Cooperative Medical Science Program (USJCMSP; http://www.niaid. nih.gov/dmid/us%5Fjapan/default.htm) in Bethesda, Maryland USA on 30 June 1999 (D.M. Dixon & T. Matsumoto, co-chairs). A major goal of the workshop was to present contemporary medical mycology to the Joint Committee of the USJCMSP through representative research presentations in order to make the Committee aware of current status in the field, and the potential for scientific interactions. The second formal action is the workshop, under the auspices of the Japanese Society for Medical Mycology Medical Perspectives of Fungal Genome Studies scheduled for 28 November 2000 in Tokyo, Japan (T. Matsumoto & D.M. Dixon, co-chairs). The NIAID Mycology Workshop series recommended interactions between the following groups: academic and pharmaceutical; medical and molecular (model systems); medical and plant pathogens; basic and clinical; mycologists and immunologists. The first two US-Japan workshops can be viewed as consistent with these recommendations, and serve as a Western/Eastern gateway for exchange. The focus of the second US-Japan workshop on genome projects for the medically important fungi provides an excellent model for international communications. Given the tsunami of information that is flowing from genomics and bioinformatics, it is clear that global interactions will be essential in managing and interpreting the data.  (+info)

Guidelines and algorithms: perceptions of why and when they are successful and how to improve them. (4/25)

Medicine is increasingly complex, a reality created by the explosion of knowledge during the last 50 years. The cost of applying this knowledge creates a daunting economic challenge. As a result, there has been a profusion of guidelines intended to influence medical practice. This report explores the interrelated issues and concepts that impact the value and success of guidelines. These include medical quality and error, compliance, and the impact on outcomes in an evidence-based medicine context. Lessons learned from previous guidelines must be understood in relation to human behavior. Legal implications of the guidelines must be considered because both an increase and a decrease in liability can be anticipated. Many products have been labeled "advocacy guidelines" with a negative context. They are believed to express motivation rather than optimizing care. The ideal of professionalism is challenged, and there is potential for the growing use of guidelines in enforcing punitive actions. Constructive experience has emphasized the appropriate required elements for practice guidelines: a systematic review of the literature, an assessment of the volume and level of the evidence, and development of a review process by an appropriate multidisciplinary group for consistency, clinical impact, and resource implications leading to clearly stated and reasonable recommendations. The dissemination of guidelines, beyond conventional publication in a journal, will impact the success of the intended outcomes. The exploitation of electronic avenues, including the Internet and the evolving interactive electronic medical record, seems to be essential for future success in these endeavors.  (+info)

Revised 2003 consensus on diagnostic criteria and long-term health risks related to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). (5/25)

Since the 1990 NIH-sponsored conference on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), it has become appreciated that the syndrome encompasses a broader spectrum of signs and symptoms of ovarian dysfunction than those defined by the original diagnostic criteria. The 2003 Rotterdam consensus workshop concluded that PCOS is a syndrome of ovarian dysfunction along with the cardinal features hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovary (PCO) morphology. PCOS remains a syndrome and, as such, no single diagnostic criterion (such as hyperandrogenism or PCO) is sufficient for clinical diagnosis. Its clinical manifestations may include: menstrual irregularities, signs of androgen excess, and obesity. Insulin resistance and elevated serum LH levels are also common features in PCOS. PCOS is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular events.  (+info)

The NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy in asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism: are they too limited? (6/25)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether preoperative and postoperative symptoms and outcome differ in patients who meet or fail to meet the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: The NIH Consensus Conference on primary hyperparathyroidism in 1990 defined criteria for surgical intervention suggesting that some patients can be safely managed without surgery. METHODS: Over a 3-year period, 202 consecutive patients undergoing parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism at a tertiary referral center were prospectively given a questionnaire regarding their symptoms and associated conditions during their initial and follow-up office visits as were 63 thyroid control patients. The 178 patients who completed the follow-up questionnaire were assigned to 2 groups according to the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy. The frequency of preoperative symptoms and conditions associated with primary hyperparathyroidism as well as postoperative improvement in symptoms and surgical outcome were compared. RESULTS: Of the 178 parathyroid patients, 103 met the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy whereas 75 did not. Patient profiles were similar in each group except mean ages, 55 versus 65, and preoperative serum calcium levels, 11.5 mg/dL versus 11.0 mg/dL (NIH and non-NIH groups, respectively; P < 0.001). The incidence of preoperative nonspecific somatic and neuropsychiatric symptoms and associated conditions was equivalent in both groups and more common than in the 63 thyroid control patients. After parathyroidectomy, symptomatic improvement was dramatic and equal between the 2 parathyroid groups. Postoperative mean serum calcium levels were similar (8.78 mg/dL, NIH group, versus 8.75 mg/dL, non-NIH group). CONCLUSION: Symptoms were more common in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism versus thyroid controls, but were not different between those patients who met the NIH criteria for parathyroidectomy and those who did not. Patients in both parathyroid groups benefited symptomatically after successful parathyroidectomy.  (+info)

The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. An interpretive history of the cholesterol controversy, part IV: the 1984 coronary primary prevention trial ends it--almost. (7/25)

As of the early 1980s, despite the wealth of evidence from experimental animal models, the extensive epidemiologic evidence, the powerful genetic evidence, and the strongly suggestive clinical intervention trial results, most clinicians still remained unpersuaded regarding the relevance of the lipid hypothesis. What was needed was a well-designed, large-scale, long-term, double-blind study demonstrating a statistically significant impact of treatment on coronary heart disease events. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) had laid the groundwork for such a study as early as 1970, but the study was not completed and the results published until 1984. This study, the Coronary Primary Prevention Trial, showed that treatment with a bile acid binding resin reduced major coronary events in hypercholesterolemic men by 19%, with a P value of 0.05. The NIH followed this up with a national Consensus Development Conference on Lowering Blood Cholesterol to Prevent Heart Disease. For the first time, the NIH now went on record advocating screening for hypercholesterolemia and urging aggressive treatment for those at high risk. The Institute initiated a national cooperative program to that end, the National Cholesterol Education Program. For the first time, preventing coronary heart disease became a national public health goal.  (+info)

Gastrointestinal surgery for severe obesity: National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference Statement. (8/25)

The National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on Gastrointestinal Surgery for Severe Obesity brought together surgeons, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, and other health care professionals as well as the public to address: the nonsurgical treatment options for severe obesity, the surgical treatments for severe obesity and the criteria for selection, the efficacy and risks of surgical treatments for severe obesity, and the need for future research on and epidemiological evaluation of these therapies. Following 2 days of presentations by experts and discussion by the audience, a consensus panel weighed the evidence and prepared their consensus statement. Among their findings, the panel recommended that (1) patients seeking therapy for severe obesity for the first time should be considered for treatment in a non-surgical program with integrated components of a dietary regimen, appropriate exercise, and behavioral modification and support, (2) gastric restrictive or bypass procedures could be considered for well-informed and motivated patients with acceptable operative risks, (3) patients who are candidates for surgical procedures should be selected carefully after evaluation by a multidisciplinary team with medical, surgical, psychiatric, and nutritional expertise, (4) the operation be performed by a surgeon substantially experienced with the appropriate procedures and working in a clinical setting with adequate support for all aspects of management and assessment, and (5) lifelong medical surveillance after surgical therapy is a necessity. The full text of the consensus panel's statement follows.  (+info)

The rate of cesarean delivery in the United States is at a record high and continues to increase. Conversely, rates of vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC) have declined (to 12.7 percent in 2002 from 28.3 percent in 1996). Childbirth accounts for about one quarter of hospital admissions for U.S. women. Guise and colleagues conducted an extensive review to evaluate the benefits and harms of VBAC and elective repeat cesarean delivery.. The authors searched electronic databases for relevant published articles, systematic reviews, clinical trials, and reports. They also sought evidence from reference lists and contacted experts for recommendations. Relevant evidence arising since the 1980 National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on VBAC was sought. Clinical studies conducted in developed countries were eligible for inclusion if they contained at least 10 patients and provided data about uterine rupture, VBAC rates, and maternal and fetal outcomes, and were not focused ...

Neurofibromas are benign tumors of perineural cell origin that arise from elements of the peripheral nervous system (1). The majority of neurofibromas are often solitary lesions that occur in the dermis or subcutis. Neurofibromas in the skin are more common than those occurring in the deeper soft tissues. Neurofibroma of the breast is very rare (1-5). It is most commonly associated with neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1). The diagnosis of NF1 is based on clinical criteria established by the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference (6). The most common clinical manifestations are six or more café au lait spots, two or more neurofibromas, two or more Lisch nodules, axillary or inguinal freckling, sphenoid wing dysplasia or thinning of a long bone cortex and optic glioma. Two or more of the criteria are required for diagnosis. Tumors occur in NF1 patients include neurofibroma, optic nerve glioma, leukemia, rhabdomyosarcoma, pheochromocytoma, and malignant peripheral nerve sheath ...

Search Strategy. A search strategy was developed by a consultant to the project, and searches of EMBASE and MEDLINE resulted in a database of 807 annotated references. The annotated references were read independently by at least two people to achieve consensus on 94 that were selected for retrieval. The reference lists in those 94 were then checked, and studies that appeared to be related to our questions were added, producing a final database of 162 references.. Ideally, the evidence should have been selected from high-scoring studies with strong design, as described in criteria of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR). Many studies, however, were both weak in design and of limited value. Since the evidence on management of root caries is rarely supported by more than a few studies, recommendations on how to do so can only be tentative.. Findings on Prevalence. Prevalence estimates of root decayed and filled surfaces (RDFS) were taken from the NHANES III study. The adjusted ...
Denis OMullane, B.D.S., Ph.D., F.D.S., F.F.D., and John Clarkson, B.D.S., Ph.D.:. The extent to which practitioners make use of new methods for identifying patients at risk of dental caries and for diagnosing early carious lesions is not known. However, a worldwide increase in sales of new instruments for carrying out these tasks would seem to indicate rising interest in new techniques.. It is likely that dental practitioners choose combinations of appropriate preventive approaches for arresting or reversing early carious lesions. In the systematic review conducted by Research Triangle Institute (Bader, Shugars, Rozier, et al., 2000), it is pointed out that surprisingly few studies have been conducted on the results obtained with combined methods. For example, only four studies were found that had examined the effectiveness of combining chlorhexidine and fluoride (Spets-Happonen, Luoma, Forss, et al., 1991; Luoma, Ronnberg, 1987; Tenovuo, Hakkinen, Paunio, et al., 1992; Petersson, Magnusson, ...
The rationale for recommending daily intakes of 1,000-1,500 mg of calcium, especially in older subjects with diabetes,[lxxx][80] is based on the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine Food and Nutrition Board[lxxxi][81] and the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Panel on Osteoporosis Prevention, Diagnosis, and Therapy.[lxxxii][82] This recommendation appears to be safe and likely to reduce the incidence of osteoporosis in older individuals with diabetes.

Objective: To review alternate treatments (Tx) of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - those other than psychoactive medication and behavioral/psychosocal Tx - for the November, 1998 National Institute of Health (NIH) Consensus Development Conference on ADHD. Method: The literature was searched on Medline and Psychinfo 1963-1998 and investigators known to be interested in alternate Tx were contacted for unpublished data. Results: Twenty-three alternate Tx were identified, ranging in scientific documentation from discrediting controlled studies through mere hypotheses to positive controlled double-blind clinical trials. Many of them are applicable only to a restricted etiological subgroup. The oligoantigenic or few-foods diet has convincing double-blind evidence of efficacy in multiple trials for a properly selected subgroup. Enzyme-potentiated desensitization to foods, relation/EMG biofeedback, and deleading also have controlled evidence of efficacy. Glyconutritional ...

no nation other than the United States routinely screens premenopausal women by mammography. In this context, it may be noted that the January 1997 National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference recommended against premenopausal screening (24), a decision that the NCI, but not the ACS, accepted (4). However, under pressure from Congress and the ACS, the NCI reversed its decision some three months later in favor of premenopausal screening. The U.S. overkill extends to the standard practice of taking two or more mammograms per breast annually in postmenopausal women. This contrasts with the more restrained European practice of a single view every two to three years (4 ...

Kent. He was a friend. I dare to say even a good friend. Thats pretty strange for some to accept, considering that he and I only spent a total of an hour together in person. Seumas was a computer programmer. A computer game programmer. And so am I. We "met" online through an electronic mailing list about computer graphics. At first, we just saw each others messages go past. Eventually, when youve seen the list for a while, you start to recognize peoples names and styles. You begin to learn about point of view, and which people are usually sensible, and which ones are off-the-wall. His messages were always short and to the point, well-written and well-considered. He was clearly one of the "good guys". At a game development conference last year, someone who knew us both in person briefly introduced us. I was shocked -- he looked like a pimply-faced kid! Turns out he was just getting over a serious case of the chicken pox. But he was still a kid. This intelligent, sensible graphics programmer ...

A number of definitions of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), or chronic lung disease, have been used. A June 2000 National Institute of Child Health and Human Development/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Workshop proposed a severity-based definition of BPD for infants ,32 weeks gestational age (GA). Mild BPD was defined as a need for supplemental oxygen (O2) for , or =28 days but not at 36 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) or discharge, moderate BPD as O2 for , or =28 days plus treatment with ,30% O2 at 36 weeks PMA, and severe BPD as O2 for , or =28 days plus , or =30% O2 and/or positive pressure at 36 weeks PMA. The objective of this study was to determine the predictive validity of the severity-based, consensus definition of BPD. Data from 4866 infants (birth weight , or =1000 g, GA ,32 weeks, alive at 36 weeks PMA) who were entered into the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network Very Low Birth weight (VLBW) Infant Registry between January ...

The prognosis of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is influenced by its anatomic site; however, few studies on the prognosis of gastric GISTs have been reported. The aims of this study were to evaluate long-term prognoses of patients who underwent surgical resection for gastric GISTs and to compare the clinical efficacy of two staging systems: the National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus criteria and the 7th Union for International Cancer Control/American Joint Committee on Cancer (UICC/AJCC) tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging system. We conducted a retrospective observational study of 145 patients who underwent surgical resection for gastric GISTs between February 2001 and June 2012 at Pusan National University Hospital (Busan, Korea). Recurrence and 5-year recurrence-free survival (RFS) rates were analyzed. During a median follow-up period of 44 months (range, 6-144 months), 11 recurrent lesions were detected in 9 patients (6.4%). On multivariate analysis, tumor size (|5 cm), mitotic count
In October 2000, the NIH published a Consensus Development Conference Statement for screening and management of PKU. Since then, new treatments, including pharmacological, have emerged.

Several interventions have been demonstrated to be effective in reducing the prevalence of behaviors that place adolescents at risk for acquisition of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).1-6 These programs have in common a small-group and face-to-face method of delivery, an emphasis on skills development referent to decision making, communication, negotiation and condom use, use of a wide variety of instructional formats and approaches to intervention delivery, and grounding in social learning theory.2-6 Despite the encouraging results that accompany these studies with reference to adolescent risk reduction, new challenges have emerged. First, the few studies that have followed participants beyond the immediate intervention period (6 months or less) have noted a decay of intervention effect on behavior over time,5,6 prompting members of the National Institutes of Health Consensus Panel: Intervention to Prevent HIV Risk Behavior to identify sustainability of program effectiveness as 1 of the most ...

WR) 304. The Fourth Aim: A Toolkit for Medical Educators to Develop Resilience, Maintain Professional Satisfaction, and Restore Joy to Teaching and Medical Practice. Research on burnout in medicine has revealed an epidemic. Higher prevalence (40 to 80%) is noted among medical residents and fellows compared to medical students, physicians, or college graduates of similar age. Among internists, burnout approaches 60%. High rates of burnout also apply to medical educators, which is especially troubling given that we serve two constituencies: patients and learners. There is potential for triple damage: to ourselves, our patients, and our learners. This erosion of professional satisfaction in a profession charged with healing is troubling. It forces us to ask a difficult question; How can we effectively enhance a sense of self-worth and physical integrity in the people we serve, if we ourselves have become seriously deficient (even impaired) in these areas? The Triple Aim, developed by the Institute ...

The good news is that much has been achieved since the publication of the Maitland Commissions famous Missing Link report. Measured in conventional terms, such as teledensity or percentage of households with a telephone, there has been a substantial narrowing of the gap. Africa now has more than twice as many main telephone connections as Tokyo and 85 percent of todays world population share 45 percent of all telephone lines (see Figure 1). In comparison, in 1984, 90 percent of the worlds people used only ten percent of all telephone lines.. The bad news is that the mismatch between the technology-rich and the technology-poor seems to be a step ahead and while we are still filling the gap of the 1980s, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) wave of the 1990s risks digging new holes behind our back. The two major market trends that have characterized the last decade - the growth of mobile communications and the development of the Internet - were not foreseen in the Maitland report. ...

Functional MRI is potentially useful for the evaluation of brain function in Alzheimers disease (AD). We compared fMRI and perfusion SPECT in 16 probable AD patients (NIH criteria), and 10 normal age-matched controls. The MR system (GE Signa 1.5T) was equipped with an Advanced NMR Systems Inc. echo planar coil. We used an axial spin echo technique, and injected gadoteridol (Bracco Inc) as a bolus over 6 sec at 20 sec into the scanning sequence. Calculation of CBV maps was performed by the method of Belliveau et al. SPECT was obtained with a digital annular system (DSI Inc) 20 minutes after a 20 mCi injection of Tc99m HM -PAO. Each SPECT dataset was superposed (registered) to its corresponding MR image dataset, using a computerized iterative surface fitting algorithm. A polar grid system was used to divide a mid-axial fMRI or SPECT slice into 120 regions. The correlation of mean regional activity (counts/pixel) on SPECT and mean signal intensity on fMRI, assessed with Pearsons product moment ...
At the same time, the UNs International Labour Organisation released figures concluding that levels of anxiety, burnout and depression are spiralling out of control, costing employers billions of pounds in lost working time.

Aims/hypothesis According to the consensus criteria developed for type 1 diabetes, an individual can be diagnosed with insulitis when ,= 15 CD45(+) cells are found within the parenchyma or in the islet-exocrine interface in ,= 3 islets. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of individuals with type 2 diabetes fulfilling these criteria with reference to non-diabetic and type 1 diabetic individuals. Methods Insulitis was determined by examining CD45(+) cells in the pancreases of 50, 13 and 44 organ donors with type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes and no diabetes, respectively. CD3(+) cells (T cells) infiltrating the islets were evaluated in insulitic donors. In insulitic donors with type 2 diabetes, the pancreases were characterised according to the presence of CD68 (macrophages), myeloperoxidase (MPO; neutrophils), CD3, CD20 (B cells) and HLA class I hyperstained islets. In all type 2 diabetic donors, potential correlations of insulitis with dynamic glucose-stimulated insulin secretion ...

At the 2013 Academic Emergency Medicine global health consensus conference, a breakout session to develop a research agenda for resuscitation was held. Two articles are the result of that discussion. This second article addresses data collection, management, and analysis and regionalization of postresuscitation care, resuscitation programs, and research examples around the world and proposes a strategy to strengthen resuscitation research globally. There is a need for reliable global statistics on resuscitation, international standardization of data, and development of an electronic standard for reporting data. Regionalization of postresuscitation care is a priority area for future research. Large resuscitation clinical research networks are feasible and can give valuable data for improvement of service and outcomes. Low-cost models of population-based research, and emphasis on interventional and implementation studies that assess the clinical effects of programs and interventions, are needed to ...

SIDS has been a diagnostic entity since 1969 when a National Institutes of Health Consensus Committee codified "Sudden Infant Death Syndrome."1 The committee defined SIDS as "the sudden death of any infant or young child, which is unexpected by history, and in which a thorough post-mortem examination fails to reveal an adequate cause for death." The typical SIDS case identified in the committees 1969 report occurred in the winter months, unwitnessed during sleep, and involved infants two to four months old from a lower socioeconomic level. No single pathological process or mechanism of death became apparent as a cause of death after many nonspecific autopsies.

An independent panel convened by the National Institutes of Health has concluded that the name of a common hormone disorder in women, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), causes confusion and is a barrier to research progress and effective patient care.. Timothy R.B. Johnson, M.D., chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan, is among the panel members.. Panel members reported that the current name focuses on a criterion - ovarian cysts - which is neither necessary nor sufficient to diagnose the syndrome. In a report released today, the panel recommended assigning a new name that more accurately reflects the disorder.. Three diagnostic classification systems are currently in use for PCOS: the NIH Criteria, the Rotterdam Criteria, and the Androgen Excess and PCOS Society Criteria. The panel found that the use of multiple systems hinders the ability of clinicians to successfully partner with women in addressing the health issues that concern them.. "To resolve any confusion ...

Speaking at the Growing Kalgoorlie-Boulder 2018 Economic Development Conference in Perth, Mr Reed said the proposed site was well situated, 70km from its part-owned Mt Marion lithium mine, and provided an opportunity to minimise costs while capitalising on the lithium market rise.. "The mine is 70km from road from the proposed refinery site," Mr Reed said.. "Currently, we are exporting that out of Kwinana up into China, so it gives us an advantage - we save ourselves 700km of transport.. "It will give us a competitive advantage over the Chinese lithium hydroxide converters and theyre currently about 70 per cent of the market.". The two-year option provides Neometals the time needed to undertake due diligence on the touted refinery, on which it plans to make an investment decision by June next year.. Neometals and City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder council have also signed a memorandum of understanding to help obtain infrastructure and utilities for the plant.. The agreement comes after the company last ...
BACKGROUND: New criteria for the diagnosis and classification of chronic graft-versus-host disease were developed in 2005 for the purpose of clinical trials with a consensus sponsored by the National Institute of Health. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to present the results of a multicenter pilot study performed by the Brazil-Seattle chronic graft-versus-host disease consortium to determine the feasibility of using these criteria in five Brazilian centers. METHODS: The study was performed after translation of the consensus criteria into Portuguese and training. A total of 34 patients with National Institute of Health chronic graft-versus-host disease were enrolled in the pilot study between June 2006 and May 2009. RESULTS: Of the 34 patients, 26 (76 percent) met the criteria of overlap syndrome and eight (24 percent) the classic subcategory. The overall severity of disease was moderate in 21 (62 percent) and severe in 13 (38 percent) patients. The median time from transplant to onset of ...

In our series, in 10.6% of the cases, the discordances between pre- and post-natal diagnoses led to incorrect prediction of neonatal potential intervention. In addition, the long-term care strategy was changed in 7.7% of the cases. Finally, the global severity scale, designed to predict the "quality of life" after a fetal diagnosis of CHD was modified in one-tenth of the patients. Our results suggest that the most accurate precision is needed for pre-natal diagnosis of CHD as anatomical details may modify the therapeutic plans and the need for in utero transfer. These limitations should be part of the information given to the parents during pre-natal interviews. Of note, all fetal echocardiographies were performed by expert fetal cardiologists after a 3-step process (screening, CHD confirmation, and expertise), and prognostication of the outcomes was defined with the final diagnosis. As the discrepancies between first-line sonographers and expert fetal cardiologists are well known, this ...
There is no consensus on the pathologic conditions or severity implied by the term "hippocampal sclerosis" (HS). In this study, a panel of experienced neuropathologists evaluated inter-rater agreement for pathologic diagnoses in the hippocampus and proposes consensus recommendations on the use of the term "HS." In a group of 251 cases of HS selected from a large autopsy cohort (1,388; 18%), a coordinating group identified 5 patterns of degenerative or vascular pathology. Four independent neuropathologists assessed a single set of hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections following descriptive definitions to classify the appearances and assign the diagnosis of HS, if appropriate. Diagnostic agreement (range, 36%-70%) was highest for vascular lesions. Subsequent joint review of all cases highlighted the need to identify neurodegenerative lesions using immunohistochemistry. Initial agreement in assigning the diagnosis of HS varied from 0% to 86%. After a joint review, the group recommended that the ...

Most people consult primary care physicians for ulcers. Although its use is now well established among gastroenterologists, antibiotic therapy aimed at eradicating H. pylori is still embraced by only a minority of the primary care physicians who treat ulcers.. But after the 1994 NIH consensus, doctors "have no excuse if they ignore H. pylori," says Marshall, who is now a clinical associate professor of medicine at the University of Virginia Health Sciences Center and disseminates information through the Internet for the International Foundation for Helicobacter and Intestinal Immunology (http://www.helico.com), which is partially funded by a grant from Glaxo Wellcome. By last year, he adds, the bacterium had gained new renown. "Patients were shopping around for doctors interested in H. pylori.". Some practicing physicians, however, say they are reluctant to jump on the antibiotics bandwagon because they are cautious about overusing antibiotics, uncertain about which regimen to use and concerned ...

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study by using DT tractography to investigate the association between microstructural features of WM tracts and neuropsychologic performance in patients with ALS. In line with previous findings in ALS,1 some degree of cognitive involvement was present in 69% of our nondemented patients with ALS. Overall, the cognitive profile of our sample is consistent with a subtle dysfunction of the executive resources, whereas 2 patients had a mild frontotemporal syndrome according to current consensus criteria.18 Some patients also showed spatial short-term memory and visuospatial ability deficits. We found that patients with ALS scoring below the cutoff on at least 1 cognitive test showed more widespread extramotor WM damage relative to those patients with normal cognitive tests. The performances at executive function tests correlated with the DT MR imaging measures of corpus callosum and major corticocortical association tracts passing through the frontal ...

BOS is the pulmonary manifestation of cGvHD post-allogeneic HSCT. Survival and treatment of this often fatal complication have not improved over the last 20 years and there is no clear standard of care. For the past 10 years, BOS was treated in our center with monthly cycles of HDPS. We reviewed the outcomes of patients with post-HSCT BOS who met the diagnostic criteria for BOS as per the NIH consensus and were treated with at least one cycle of methylprednisolone at a dose of 10-30 mg/kg/d×3 d. We collected demographic and clinical data, responses to treatment and results of pulmonary function tests at several time points ...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with poor outcome in critically ill children. The reported incidence rate of AKI in children admitted to pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) range from 8% and 89% [1-6]. AKI has been associated with prolonged hospital stay, progression to chronic kidney disease, and a significantly higher relative risk of in-hospital death [7-10]. The epidemiology and outcomes of adult AKI have been validated through large, multi-center studies describing over 20,000 adult patients [11-13]. Unfortunately, the current pediatric literature lacks such extensive studies. To date, the largest study about AKI in children admitted to PICU was carried by Schneider et al. on 3396 children [1]. Despite the large population size, this was a single-center study and also did not use the pediatric RIFLE criteria to define AKI, the standard for pediatric AKI definition before the recent KDIGO consensus criteria [4,14]. Aside from a few single center studies, most knowledge of ...

A consensus statement is a comprehensive analysis by a panel of experts (i.e., consensus panel) of a scientific or medical issue related to diabetes. A consensus statement is developed immediately after a consensus conference at which presentations are made on the issue under review. The statement represents the panels collective analysis, evaluation, and opinion based, in part, on the conference proceedings. The need for a consensus statement arises when clinicians or scientists desire guidance on a subject for which there is a relative deficiency of comprehensive evidence that might otherwise allow for a more definitive statement to be made.. Consensus statements are published in American Diabetes Association journals and other scientific/medical journals, as appropriate. Once written by the panel, a consensus statement is not subject to subsequent review or approval and does not represent official association opinion. Listed below are recent consensus statements..

The unexpected or fortuitous encounter of some abnormalities on computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head is often higher than what we could predict in patients suffering from migraine or tension-type headache. Fortunately, the majority of these lesions are benign anomalies.The incidence of such abnormalities depends on the age, gender, and race of the patient as well as the environmental or geographic influences, which may predominate in a given population. Since pain is a subjective complaint, the indications for neuroimaging examination for patients with headache are still disputed with. In 1982, the recommendations for CT scan, to investigate patients with headache, by the National Institutes of Health Consensus Conferences1, were: 1) severe headache, 2) unusual headache, and 3) headache associated with abnormal neurological signs. In 1994, the Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology2, by analyzing a total of 17 studies (class ...
Persons with schizophrenia and related disorders may be particularly sensitive to a number of determinants of service use, including those related with illness, socio-demographic characteristics and organizational factors. The objective of this study is to identify factors associated with outpatient contacts at community mental health services of patients with schizophrenia or related disorders. This cross-sectional study analyzed 1097 patients. The main outcome measure was the total number of outpatient consultations during one year. Independent variables were related to socio-demographic, clinical and use of service factors. Data were collected from clinical records. The multilevel linear regression model explained 46.35% of the variance. Patients with significantly more contacts with ambulatory services were not working and were receiving welfare benefits (p = 0.02), had no formal education (p = 0.02), had a global level of severity of two or three (four being the most severe) (p < 0.001), with one

There is one prescription that is applicable to almost everyone, healthy or not: Exercise. "Use it or lose it," we say. "Movement is life," we hear. Exercise is especially helpful to cancer survivors - a population that is happily ever increasing. There are now more than 15.5 million cancer survivors in this country, and that number continues to rise.1 However, although the benefits of exercise are becoming increasingly clear, actually putting it into practice can be difficult for someone who is fatigued, older, or returning to work while continuing to cope with their disease as well as comorbidities. Although in the past cancer patients were advised to rest and remain inactive, that changed in 2010 when guidelines advising the opposite were drawn up by experts in exercise and oncology. At that time, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) met with oncology specialists and concluded that studies of survivors of breast and prostate cancers showed clear benefit from participating in ...
Piotr J Gorecki, MD, Kendra M Black, MA, MD, Ankeet Udani, MD, Krystyna Kabata, PA, Anthony Tortolani, MD. New York Methodist Hospital. Introduction: It has been shown that morbid obesity is associated with a chronic inflammatory state and is associated with increased C-reactive protein (CRP) levels. In this study, we examine the dynamics of serum CRP levels with long term follow up in patients who underwent laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB).. Methods and Procedures: All patients met the NIH criteria for Bariatric surgery and were operated upon by a single surgeon (PG) in a single institution between June 2006 and January 2008. Demographic data, weight, BMI, comorbidities and perioperative data were entered into the database prospectively. The same clinical pathways and the same technique were utilized for all patients. There were no postoperative mortalities. Serum CRP levels were obtained during routine pre-operative blood work and every year post-operatively up to 6 years. Yearly ...
The Injury Severity Score (ISS) is an established medical score to assess trauma severity. It correlates with mortality, morbidity and hospitalization time after trauma. It is used to define the term major trauma. A major trauma (or polytrauma) is defined as the Injury Severity Score being greater than 15. The AIS Committee of the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) designed and improves upon the scale. The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) is an anatomically based consensus-derived global severity scoring system that classifies each injury in every body region according to its relative severity on a six-point ordinal scale: Minor Moderate Serious Severe Critical Maximal (currently untreatable). There are nine AIS chapters corresponding to nine body regions: Head Face Neck Thorax Abdomen Spine Upper Extremity Lower Extremity External and other. The ISS is based (see below) upon the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS). To calculate an ISS for an injured person, the body is ...
