Follow-up of American Cancer Society Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship recipients. (1/63688)

A follow-up study of the 44 recipients of American Cancer Society, Inc., Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from 1962 to 1973 revealed that 11 of 21 M.D. candidates obtained their second (Ph.D.) degree at the end of training. By contrast, all but one among the 23 Ph.D. candidates were awarded the second (M.D.) degree. A great majority of either group remain in active research, regardless of whether or not they obtained the second degree. A very high percentage of their research is cancer related.  (+info)

Superimposed histologic and genetic mapping of chromosome 9 in progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia: implications for a genetic model of multistep urothelial carcinogenesis and early detection of urinary bladder cancer. (2/63688)

The evolution of alterations on chromosome 9, including the putative tumor suppressor genes mapped to the 9p21-22 region (the MTS genes), was studied in relation to the progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia by using whole organ superimposed histologic and genetic mapping in cystectomy specimens and was verified in urinary bladder tumors of various pathogenetic subsets with longterm follow-up. The applicability of chromosome 9 allelic losses as non-invasive markers of urothelial neoplasia was tested on voided urine and/or bladder washings of patients with urinary bladder cancer. Although sequential multiple hits in the MTS locus were documented in the development of intraurothelial precursor lesions, the MTS genes do not seem to represent a major target for p21-23 deletions in bladder cancer. Two additional tumor suppressor genes involved in bladder neoplasia located distally and proximally to the MTS locus within p22-23 and p11-13 regions respectively were identified. Several distinct putative tumor suppressor gene loci within the q12-13, q21-22, and q34 regions were identified on the q arm. In particular, the pericentromeric q12-13 area may contain the critical tumor suppressor gene or genes for the development of early urothelial neoplasia. Allelic losses of chromosome 9 were associated with expansion of the abnormal urothelial clone which frequently involved large areas of urinary bladder mucosa. These losses could be found in a high proportion of urothelial tumors and in voided urine or bladder washing samples of nearly all patients with urinary bladder carcinoma.  (+info)

Persistent damage to Enterocytozoon bieneusi, with persistent symptomatic relief, after combined furazolidone and albendazole in AIDS patients. (3/63688)

AIM: To investigate morphological changes in Enterocytozoon bieneusi and the duration of symptomatic relief after combination treatment with furazolidone and albendazole in AIDS patients. METHODS: Four severely immunocompromised AIDS patients with symptomatic E bieneusi infection of the gut received an 18 day course of combined furazolidone and albendazole (500 + 800 mg daily). All patients were monitored for parasite shedding in stool by light microscopy at the end of treatment and monthly during follow up. At the end of treatment, duodenal biopsy specimens obtained from three patients were studied by transmission electron microscopy by two pathologists blind to the patients' treatment or clinical outcome. Duodenal biopsy specimens obtained from one of the patients two months after completion of treatment were also studied electronmicroscopically. RESULTS: All patients had long lasting symptomatic relief, with a major decrease--or transient absence--of spore shedding in stools from completion of treatment. After treatment, changes in faecal spores were persistently found by light microscopy in all cases, and there was evidence of both a substantial decrease in the parasite load and ultrastructural damage in the parasite in all biopsy specimens. The treatment was well tolerated, and no patient had clinical or parasitological relapse during follow up (up to 15 months). CONCLUSIONS: The long lasting symptomatic relief observed in all four treated patients correlated with the persistent decrease in parasite load both in tissue and in stool, and with the morphological changes observed in the life cycle of the protozoan. These data suggest that combined treatment with furazolidone and albendazole is active against E bieneusi and may result in lasting remission even in severely immunocompromised patients.  (+info)

Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in cervical squamous cell carcinoma--a clinicopathological study. (4/63688)

AIM: To evaluate the intracellular and peritumoral expression of matrix proteins in squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix using immunohistochemistry. METHODS: 71 squamous cell carcinomas and 10 controls were stained for laminin, fibronectin, and collagen IV. Cytoplasmic staining in tumour cells and peritumoral deposition of matrix proteins were evaluated. The association between staining results and patient age, tumour stage, histological grade, and survival was studied. RESULTS: Positive cytoplasmic staining for laminin, fibronectin, and collagen IV was observed in 17 (23.9%), 27 (38%), and 10 (14.1%) cases, respectively. Staining for laminin was most pronounced in the invasive front of tumour islands, while for fibronectin and collagen IV it appeared to be diffuse. Peritumoral staining for laminin and collagen IV was detected in 12 cases (16.9%). Early stage (Ia1-Ia2) tumours were uniformly negative for all three proteins. Cytoplasmic staining for laminin correlated with positive staining for fibronectin and collagen IV, and with the presence of a peritumoral deposition of collagen IV and laminin. There was no correlation with any of the three markers between staining results and patient age, stage, grade, or survival. CONCLUSIONS: Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in some cervical squamous cell carcinomas might reflect the enhanced ability of these tumours to modify the peritumoral stroma. This ability seems to be absent in early stage tumours. The correlation between intracytoplasmic and peritumoral expression of matrix proteins supports the evidence of their synthesis by tumour cells. However, this property did not correlate with disease outcome in this study.  (+info)

Reproductive factors and fatal hip fractures. A Norwegian prospective study of 63,000 women. (5/63688)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of reproductive variables (age at menarche, menopause, first and last birth as well as parity, lactation, and abortions) on hip fracture mortality. DESIGN AND SETTING: A prospective study in Norway with more than 60,000 women followed up for 29 years. A total of 465 deaths as a result of hip fracture were recorded. MAIN RESULTS: Statistically significant linear relations (p < or = 0.02) were found between both age at menarche and length of reproductive period (defined as age at menopause to age at menarche) and the mortality of hip fractures in women aged less than 80. The death rate for women with a late menarche (> or = 17 years) was twice that of the women with relatively early menarche (< or = 13 years). Compared with women with less than 30 years between menopause and menarche, the mortality rate ratio in women with more than 38 reproductive years was 0.5. We also found an inverse relation with age at first birth. CONCLUSIONS: This study supports by hypothesis that an early menarche and a long reproductive period protect against hip fracture mortality. High age at first birth may also be protective.  (+info)

Reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileoanal pouches. (6/63688)

OBJECTIVE: A retrospective review was performed to determine the results after surgical reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileal pouch-anal procedures for ulcerative colitis and familial colonic polyposis at a university medical center. METHODS: During the 20-year period from 1978 to 1998, 601 patients underwent colectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, familial colonic polyposis, or Hirschsprung's disease. A J pouch was used for 351 patients, a lateral pouch for 221, an S pouch for 6, and a straight pull-through for 23. Acute complications after pouch construction have been detailed in previous publications and are not included in this study. Chronic pouch stasis with diarrhea, frequency, urgency, and soiling gradually became more severe in 164 patients (27.3%), associated with pouch enlargement, an elongated efferent limb, and obstruction to pouch outflow, largely related to the pouch configuration used during the authors' early clinical experience. These patients were sufficiently symptomatic to be considered for reconstruction (mean 68 months after IPAA). Transanal resection of an elongated IPAA spout was performed on 58 patients; abdominoperineal mobilization of the pouch with resection and tapering of the lower end (AP reconstruction) and ileoanal anastomosis on 83; pouch removal and new pouch construction on 7; and conversion of a straight pull-through to a pouch on 16. RESULTS: Good long-term results (mean 7.7 years) with improvement in symptoms occurred in 98% of transanal resections, 91.5% of AP reconstructions, 86% of new pouch constructions, and 100% of conversions of a straight pull-through to a pouch. The average number of bowel movements per 24 hours at 6 months was 4.8. Complications occurred in 11.6% of reconstructed patients. Five of the 164 patients (3.1%) required eventual pouch removal and permanent ileostomy. The high rate of pouch revision in this series of patients undergoing IPAA is due to a policy of aggressive correction when patients do not experience an optimal functional result, or have a progressive worsening of their status. CONCLUSIONS: Although occasionally a major undertaking, reconstruction of ileoanal pouches with progressive dysfunction due to large size or a long efferent limb has resulted in marked improvement in intestinal function in >93% of patients and has reduced the need for late pouch removal.  (+info)

Intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma: long-term results of treatment and prognostic factors. (7/63688)

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the long-term results of treatment and prognostic factors in patients with intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Recent studies have demonstrated the usefulness of re-resection, transarterial oily chemoembolization (TOCE), or percutaneous ethanol injection therapy (PEIT) in selected patients with intrahepatic recurrent HCC. The overall results of a treatment strategy combining these modalities have not been fully evaluated, and the prognostic factors determining survival in these patients remain to be clarified. METHODS: Two hundred and forty-four patients who underwent curative resection for HCC were followed for intrahepatic recurrence, which was treated aggressively with a strategy including different modalities. Survival results after recurrence and from initial hepatectomy were analyzed, and prognostic factors were determined by univariate and multivariate analysis using 27 clinicopathologic variables. RESULTS: One hundred and five patients (43%) with intrahepatic recurrence were treated with re-resection (11), TOCE (71), PEIT (6), systemic chemotherapy (8) or conservatively (9). The overall 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year survival rates from the time of recurrence were 65.5%, 34.9%, and 19.7%, respectively, and from the time of initial hepatectomy were 78.4%, 47.2%, and 30.9%, respectively. The re-resection group had the best survival, followed by the TOCE group. Multivariate analysis revealed Child's B or C grading, serum albumin < or = 40 g/l, multiple recurrent tumors, recurrence < or = 1 year after hepatectomy, and concurrent extrahepatic recurrence to be independent adverse prognostic factors. CONCLUSIONS: Aggressive treatment with a multimodality strategy could result in prolonged survival in patients with intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection for HCC. Prognosis was determined by the liver function status, interval to recurrence, number of recurrent tumors, any concurrent extrahepatic recurrence, and type of treatment.  (+info)

Serum triglyceride: a possible risk factor for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. (8/63688)

BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine the relationship between ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and serum concentrations of lipids and apolipoproteins. METHODS: A cohort of 21 520 men, aged 35-64 years, was recruited from men attending the British United Provident Association (BUPA) clinic in London for a routine medical examination in 1975-1982. Smoking habits, weight, height and blood pressure were recorded at entry. Lipids and apolipoproteins were measured in stored serum samples from the 30 men who subsequently died of ruptured AAA and 150 matched controls. RESULTS: Triglyceride was strongly related to risk of ruptured AAA. In univariate analyses the risk in men on the 90th centile of the distribution relative to the risk in men on the 10th (RO10-90) was 12 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 3.8-37) for triglyceride, 5.5 (95% CI: 1.8-17) for apolipoprotein B (apoB) (the protein component of low density lipoprotein [LDL]), 0.15 (95% CI : 0.04-0.56) for apo A1 (the protein component of high density lipoprotein [HDL]), 3.7 (95% CI: 1.4-9.4) for body mass index and 3.0 (95% CI: 1.1-8.5) for systolic blood pressure. Lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) was not a significant risk factor (RO10-90 = 1.6, 95% CI: 0.6-3.0). In multivariate analysis triglyceride retained its strong association. CONCLUSION: Triglyceride appears to be a strong risk factor for ruptured AAA, although further studies are required to clarify this. If this and other associations are cause and effect, then changing the distribution of risk factors in the population (by many people stopping smoking and adopting a lower saturated fat diet and by lowering blood pressure) could achieve an important reduction in mortality from ruptured AAA.  (+info)

Objective: This study tested the impact on response and psychological measures of different follow-up schedules for participants in a study screening for type 2 diabetes risk. Study Design and Setting: Participants were randomly allocated either to limited follow-up (n = 213), with a single questionnaire at 1 year, or to intensive follow-up (n = 218), with questionnaires sent 1, 6, and 12 months after screening. Results: There were no statistically significant differences between the groups at 1 year in either response rate (P = .08) or change from baseline to 1-year follow-up in scores on the short form of the Spielberger State Anxiety Inventory (SSAI-SF; P = .13), although there was a statistically significant but small difference between the groups in the change score of the 12-item Well-Being Questionnaire (WBQ-12; P = .003). The proportion of participants completing a WBQ-12 measure at 1 year was significantly greater in the intensive follow-up group (P = .03). Conclusion: This study shows no

Background: Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is the most effective approach following a cardiovascular event as a secondary preventive strategy. It consists of a multidisciplinary approach to overall cardiovascular risk reduction. Evaluation of the patients cardiovascular risk factor profile is a crucial part for the management of CR patients. There is strong evidence about the short-term benefits of CR programmes in the control of the cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF), reducing mortality and improving quality of life. However, the beneficial effect of CR programmes on the risk reduction is not clear longer term. Objective: Our aim was to determine the long-term control of CVRF, after a 3-year follow-up period, in patients referred to the CR programme of Santa Caterina Hospital of Girona, after suffering an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods: A retrospective observational follow-up study was conducted on a cohort of 213 patients (mean age 56 years) referred to the CR programme of Santa Caterina ...
SILVA, L.C. da et al. Long term follow-up and patterns of response of ALT in patients with chronic hepatitis NANB/C treated with recombinant interferon-a. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 1995, vol.37, n.3, pp.239-243. ISSN 1678-9946. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46651995000300010.. The response to interferon treatment in chronic hepatitis NANB/C has usually been classified as complete, partial or absent, according to the behavior of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT). However, a more detailed observation of the enzymatic activity has shown that the patterns may be more complex. The aim of this study was to describe the long term follow-up and patterns of ALT response in patients with chronic hepatitis NANB/C treated with recombinant interferon-a. A follow-up of 6 months or more after interferon-a was achieved in 44 patients. We have classified the serum ALT responses into six patterns and the observed frequencies were as follows: I. Long term response = 9 (20.5%); II. Normalization ...

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a one-week marine science education program, UNCWs MarineQuest program, on the participants knowledge and attitudes towards the marine environment. This study is the second of a multi-year assessment examining the effectiveness of an informal environmental education program. Subjects were instructed on creating concept maps using techniques developed by Novak and Gowin (1984). Knowledge content and structure scores were obtained from concept maps and multiple choice surveys. Attitude scores were obtained using the Marine Life Attitude Inventory created by Andrews (2003) based on Kellerts (1985) attitudinal dimensions towards wildlife. Data sets (2003 and 2006) were combined and analyzed using Chi-squared, Kruskal-Wallis, Wilcoxon, and Tukey- Kramer tests. The results of this study show significant differences favoring the Experimental Group I in structural complexity and knowledge content of participants. Differences in ...
The purpose of this study was to gather long-term follow-up data on patients treated with the Plicator in a previous open-label multi-center study. Originally, 64 subjects were treated at seven U.S. sites. A subset of those patients were subsequently reassessed via symptom questionnaires in this long-term (60-month) follow-up analysis. The initial open-label study was completed and officially closed at the completion of 1-year follow-up. This current study was designed to collect long-term follow-up data on previously plicated subjects all of whom were recruited de novo from the original study population. Study endpoints were prospectively defined. The primary study objectives were to assess: reduction in GERD symptoms through analysis of the GERD Health Related Quality of Life (HRQL) questionnaire and the Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale (GSRS); reduction in use of GERD medications, and change in overall physical and psychological health as measured by the Short Form Health Survey (SF-36 ...

Risikoforebygging er en viktig del av alt helsearbeid, men det meste av evidens med hensyn på forebyggende helsearbeid er fremkommet ved studier utført på middelaldrende befolkningsgrupper med ulik ekstern validitet, med variabel oppfølgingstid, og med overvekt av menn. Modifiserbare risikofaktorer har potensielt ulik innvirkning i ulike aldersgrupper, i ulike faser av en lengre oppfølgingstid og med hensyn på forskjellige endepunkter (dødelighet: total og årsaksspesifikk). Målsetning: å studere forskjeller og likheter i effekten av livsstilsrelaterte risikofaktorer (særlig kroppsmasseindeks, fysisk aktivitet og lungefunksjon) på total dødelighet og årsaksspesifikk dødelighet som følge av hjerneslag og koronar hjertesykdom i ulike aldersgrupper av menn og kvinner i en generell norsk befolkning med 42 års oppfølgingstid. Materiale og metode: 6811 tilfeldig utvalgte menn og kvinner i alderen 20-79 og bosatt i Bergen i 1964 ble invitert til en utvidet helseundersøkelse etter ...

The Bruneck Study is a prospective population-based survey on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of atherosclerosis that started in 1990. The study population was recruited as a sex- and age-stratified random sample of all residents age 40 to 79 living in Bruneck (n = 4,739), Northern Italy. Detailed follow up examinations including high-resolution ultrasound of the carotid vessels were performed every 5 yr. The present analysis focuses on the evaluation in 2000 (n = 682 with complete data including carotid ultrasound), which served as the baseline for this analysis, and on the 10-yr follow-up period between 2000 and 2010. Follow-up for clinical endpoints was 100% complete (n = 682, mean and median follow up time 8.6 and 10 yr), whereas follow up ultrasound examinations in 2005 and 2010 were available in 558 men and women (i.e., 91.9% of survivors or 81.8% overall). The study protocol was approved by the Ethics Committees of Verona and Bolzano, and all participants gave their written informed ...

Background: The cancer risk associated with gastric non-invasive neoplasia (formerly dysplasia) is debated. This prospective long term follow up study investigates the clinicopathological behaviour of non-invasive gastric neoplasia (and related lesions), focusing on the cancer risk associated with each different histological phenotype. Patients and methods: A total of 118 consecutive cases (nine indefinite for non-invasive neoplasia; 90 low grade non-invasive neoplasia; 16 high grade non-invasive neoplasia; and three suspicious for invasive adenocarcinoma) with a histological follow up of more than 12 months (average 52 months; range 12-206) were prospectively followed up with a standardised protocol. Patients in whom gastric cancer was detected within 12 months from the initial diagnosis of non-invasive neoplasia were excluded, assuming that invasive carcinoma had been missed at the initial endoscopy procedure. Results: Non-invasive neoplasia was no longer detectable in 57/118 cases (48%), was ...

According to the article: "Tragedy has plagued Chantix ever since it was approved in May, 2006, even as the drug has helped some smokers kick the habit. By mid-2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had received reports of nearly 100 suicides, 200 attempted suicides and close to 5,000 serious psychiatric events overall. Hundreds of reports of side effects have continued to stream in this year. A review of the drugs history shows that Pfizer Inc., the giant pharmaceutical company that makes Chantix, failed in its years of clinical trials to test the product on the mentally ill or those with a recent history of depression - even though millions of smokers suffer from psychiatric problems. Moreover, FDA regulators approved Chantix after a speeded-up "priority review" process, and did not request a follow-up study on mentally ill patients using the medication, even though the agencys own safety reviewer reported that the exclusion of such smokers may have undermined the clinical trials. It ...
This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of a training program to improve the knowledge, attitudes, and self-efficacy of palliative care staff and thus enable them to better detect and manage depression among palliative care patients and their families. Participants were 90 professional carers who completed a four-session training program. Knowledge, attitudes, self-efficacy, and barriers to working with depressed patients were assessed preintervention, post-intervention, and at a three-month follow-up. The results demonstrated that compared to the control group, the intervention group had improved in all of these areas. Improvements were maintained at the three-month follow-up in all areas except attitudes. The results of this study indicate the importance of training in managing depression among palliative care staff. Booster sessions will likely be needed to ensure that training program gains are maintained.

Thirty-nine trials (2326 participants) fulfilled our inclusion criteria, of which 37 provided data for meta-analyses. There were multiple sources of bias in many of the trials; randomisation was adequately concealed in 14 studies, 15 used intention-to-treat analyses and 12 used blinded outcome assessors.. For the 35 trials (1356 participants) comparing exercise with no treatment or a control intervention, the pooled SMD for the primary outcome of depression at the end of treatment was -0.62 (95% confidence interval (CI) -0.81 to -0.42), indicating a moderate clinical effect. There was moderate heterogeneity (I²= 63%).. When we included only the six trials (464 participants) with adequate allocation concealment, intention-to-treat analysis and blinded outcome assessment, the pooled SMD for this outcome was not statistically significant (-0.18, 95% CI -0.47 to 0.11). Pooled data from the eight trials (377 participants) providing long-term follow-up data on mood found a small effect in favour of ...
Objective. To assess the effect of demographic and neonatal risk factors and outcome at the last available assessment on the probability of full responders, postal responders (those who only responded to the mailed questionnaire), or nonresponders in a follow-up study of 19-year-old adolescents who were born as preterm infants. Design. The 19-year follow-up program was part of a large ongoing collaborative study in the Netherlands on the long-term effect of prematurity and dysmaturity on various medical, psychological, and social parameters. In the original cohort, 1338 infants (94%) with a gestational age of ,32 weeks and/or a birth weight of ,1500 g were enrolled. Neonatal mortality was 23% (n = 312), and another 67 children had died between the ages of 28 days and 19 years, leaving 959 survivors (72% of the original cohort) for follow-up at the present assessment. To study the effect of nonresponse, we divided the 959 survivors into 3 groups: full responders (596 [62.1%]), postal responders ...

Background: Despite optimal staging and treatment, up to 40% of stage I and II breast cancer (BC) patients will develop recurrent disease over time. These patients are believed to have disseminated tumour cells (DTC) at the time of diagnosis. Detection of minimal disease in bone marrow (BM) has been suggested to be a more direct approach to select metastasis-prone patients among this good prognosis group. Peripheral blood (PB) sampling however is more convenient. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the detection of DTC in either PB or BM predicts overall survival (OS). The initial analysis was published with a mean follow up time of 786 days (Benoy et al., BrJC 2006). We now report on these data after a mean follow up of nearly 5 years.Material and methods: PB and BM samples were collected from 148 patients with primary (M0, n=116) and metastatic (M+, n=32) BC before the initiation of any local or systemic treatment. PB of healthy volunteers and BM of patients with a nonmalignant ...
Integrating whole genome sequencing into primary care and heart disease care is unlikely to substantially increase the costs of health care utilization and follow-up tests, according to research presented at the American Society of Human Genetics 2015 Annual Meeting in Baltimore. On average, patients whose genomes were sequenced incurred a cost of $719 in follow-up tests and care over the following year, including out-of-pocket expenses, while standard treatment and follow-up averaged $430 per patient.

Patients and tissues. The tumors for this study were obtained from a consecutive series of 112 stage I (T1-2 N0 M0) NSCLC patients surgically treated at the Department of Surgery, University of Pisa (Pisa, Italy) between 1993 and 1994. The study was conducted on 101 of these patients for which tissues and complete follow-up data were available. Informed consent was obtained from all patients under study. In each case, tumor and macroscopically normal lung tissue samples (taken as far as possible from the neoplastic area) were snap-frozen in liquid nitrogen within 10 minutes of excision and stored at −80°C. Pieces of tumor and normal tissues, immediately adjacent to the corresponding frozen samples, were fixed and processed for light microscopy. In all tumor specimens, the amount of tumor cells equaled or exceeded 80% of the overall sample, confirmed by histopathologic examination. Similarly, all the macroscopically normal samples were judged to be histologically normal. The study population ...

Objective: A multi-centre 3-year follow-up study was carried out to assess the efficacy of a home-based supervised maintenance program of Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) to preserve the benefits obtained during a primary PR period, in comparison with usual care.. Methods: We included 143 COPD patients:mean age 64(8)yrs; 127/16 m/f; mean FEV1 34(9)%; mean BODE 4.7. (1.58). After completion of a 8-wk PR, patients were randomized to control group (CG) or treatment group (TG), who attended outpatient sessions every two weeks and received a telephone call every other week. Variables (6WT, BODE, HRQoL, exacerbations, hospital admissions) were analyzed at points 2, 12, 24 and 36 months.. Results: 64 out of 143 completed the follow-up period, without any difference in the dropout rate between groups. Patients who finished the study showed better results in 6WT and HRQoL at baseline: 6WT:406(5) vs 348(98)m, p=0,002; CRQd 4.66 vs 3.88 points , p=0.001; CRQf 4.43 vs 3.84, p=0,008; CDQef 4.91 vs 4.37, ...

Well, following up on the lump that I had ultrasounded this morning, I arrive at the Imaging Centre, and am ushered through by one of 2 of the women working there, I change into my gown and am then shown to the room where my ultrasound is to take place.. After pouring some warm sticky goop onto my breast, she begins the ultrasound... This took quite some time, so she was making small talk, asking questions of whether I had children, if I work and where.. and so forth. So I thought, we seem to have a friendly repour, I decided to ask.. "Does the lump seem like it has any cause for concern?".. She bluntly replies "Im not allowed to discuss that with you".. So Im laying there with my titties out for her to examine, and shes telling me that she cant discuss my own body with me.. Freakin Hell!!! However, I do understand her position.. It just pissed me off. So after a lengthy examination, I was then shown to an area to be seated and told to wait for her, she dissapeard into an office like room, ...

The Children and Families Act 2014 sets out substantial new rights and protections for young people. These require a new way of working; in particular, local authorities and their partners will need to work together with young people to help them achieve successful long term outcomes, such as getting a job or going into higher education.Planning for this will begin from an early age and will be done by working together with multiple agencies, providers, parent carers and the young people themselves.

Correction (02/11/12): Graph updated using calendar year mean HadCRUT4 data instead of meteorological year mean.. The La Niña event that persisted into 2012 (as with 2011) produced a cooler year in a global sense than 2010, although there were extensive regional warm extremes (particularly in the US). Differences between the observational records are less than they have been in previous years mainly because of the upgrade from HadCRUT3 to HadCRUT4 which has more high latitude coverage. The differences that remain are mostly related to interpolations in the Arctic. Checking up on the predictions from last year, I forecast that 2012 would be warmer than 2011 and so a top ten year, but still cooler than 2010 (because of the remnant La Niña). This was true looking at all indices (GISTEMP has 2012 at #9, HadCRUT4, #10, and NCDC, #10). This was the 2nd warmest year that started off (DJF) with a La Niña (previous La Niña years by this index were 2008, 2006, 2001, 2000 and 1999 using a 5 month ...

Purpose : To report the outcome of 34 patients of retinoblastoma with anterior chamber invasion with a long term follow up. Methods : This was a retrospective review of 307 enucleations over a period of 6 years (from July 2007 to June 2012), having IIRC E retinoblastoma. 34 patients with at least 6 months of follow up who were found to have anterior chamber invasion on histopathological examination of enucleated eye were included for the study. Eyes showing anterior chamber seeding along with other high risk features were administered adjuvant chemotherapy (Group 1). Eyes with only anterior chamber seeds and no other high risk features were not given adjuvant chemotherapy (Group 2). Results : In the 6 year period, 307 enucleations were performed. 38.76% (119) of these eyes had high risk features. 34 of the 307 eyes showed anterior chamber seeds on histopathological examination and were included in the study. Mean follow up of these eyes was 38.7 months with a range of 6 months to 84 months. Only ...
Older people frequently attend the emergency department (ED) and have a high risk of poor outcome as compared to their younger counterparts. Our aim was to study routinely collected clinical parameters as predictors of 90-day mortality in older patients attending our ED. We conducted a retrospective follow-up study at the Leiden University Medical Center (The Netherlands) among patients aged 70 years or older attending the ED in 2012. Predictors were age, gender, time and way of arrival, presenting complaint, consulting medical specialty, vital signs, pain score and laboratory testing. Cox regression analyses were performed to analyse the association between these predictors and 90-day mortality. Three thousand two hundred one unique patients were eligible for inclusion. Ninety-day mortality was 10.5 % for the total group. Independent predictors of mortality were age (hazard ratio [HR] 1.06, 95 % confidence interval [95 % CI] 1.04-1.08), referral from another hospital (HR 2.74, 95 % CI 1.22-6.11),
DOI: 10.11607/ijp.4933 Purpose: The aim of this study was to report the distribution of patients with early implant failures after implant treatment in the edentulous jaw with regard to age at surgery and association with patient mortality over a 15-year period. Materials and Methods: All consecutively treated patients treated in the edentulous jaw at a single specialist clinic from 1986 to 1997 were included and followed up for 1 year for implant failures and for 15 years with regard to patient mortality. Patients were arranged into age groups, and life tables for patients and reference groups of patients with comparable age (based on national population data) were calculated. Log rank test was used to test differences in patient survival between those with reported early implant failures and those with no early failures. Mantel-Haenszel chi-square test was used to test association between proportions of implant failures and age groups. Results: A total of 55 patients were excluded because they ...
PMID: 9610316 Although patient attrition might be a serious threat to the validity of treatment-outcome studies on temporomandibular disorders (TMD), studies on TMD patient attrition are scarce. Of the 1405 consecutive TMD patients examined in a recent 10-year period, 367 (26.1%) drop-out pati ents or patients identified with a control group were sampled. A mailed questionnaire failed to reach 41 patients, and 203 (62.3%) were returned. The questionnaire elicited information on reasons for dropping out, changes in symptoms, treatment received in other clinics after dropping out, present treatment needs, and current signs and symptoms. Dropouts were divided into two groups: (1) those who failed to show up for their first scheduled appointment after the clinical examination; (2) those who failed to complete treatment. A group of patients who were judged by the examiner not to need treatment were included as a control group. The main reasons for dropping were environmental obstacles, perceived ...
A census-type survey of every household in the City of canterbury identified 1,608 physically impaired people of whom 1,534 were subsequently interviewed. During the following two years the Citys Social Services Department made special efforts to meet the needs of the more severely disabled people identified in the survey. At a subsequent follow-up survey, it was found that 206 people had died (13.4 per cent of those originally interviewed), 79 (5.1 per cent) had been admitted to a hospital or residential home on a more or less permanent basis, and 75 (4.9 per cent) had left the district (including 8 people who were not traced). Ninety six people refused interview, so in the follow-up survey 1,078 people were interviewed, representing 67 per cent of all those originally identified as physically impaired and 92 per cent of the original cohort who were still in private households in the City at that time. Information was obtained from the people interviewed in the follow-up survey about ...
The border area between Finland, Russia and Norway is called the GreenBelt, a network of forests, peatlands and arctic fells. It is the largest and the most significant area of unspoilt natural habitat in Western Europe . The Finnish Forest Research Institute Metla has initiated a research project aiming to monitor how various methods of restoration will help to restore forests and drained peatlands in areas where natural diversity has been reduced due to forestry. The study is partly linked to the LIFE project funded by the EU, managed by Metsähallitus. Metla and the Kainuu Region Federation of Municipalities are also participating in the project. The aim of the LIFE project is to safeguard the favourable conservation status of thirteen Natura 2000 sites in Koillismaa and Kainuu in the GreenBelt area in eastern Finland. The safeguarding measures will include restoring natural forest habitats where forestry has reduced natural diversity, restoring drained peatlands, reforesting unused forest ...

Abstract: Abstract Background Although linear growth during childhood may be affected by early-life exposures, few studies have examined whether the effects of these exposures linger on during school age, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. Methods We conducted a population-based longitudinal study of 256 children living in the Brazilian Amazon, aged 0.1 y to 5.5 y in 2003. Data regarding socioeconomic and maternal characteristics, infant feeding practices, morbidities, and birth weight and length were collected at baseline of the study (2003). Child body length/height was measured at baseline and at follow-up visits (in 2007 and 2009). Restricted cubic splines were used to construct average height-for-age Z score (HAZ) growth curves, yielding estimated HAZ differences among exposure categories at ages 0.5 y, 1 y, 2 y, 5 y, 7 y, and 10 y. Results At baseline, median age was 2.6 y (interquartile range, 1.4 y-3.8 y), and mean HAZ was −0.53 (standard deviation, 1.15); 10.2% of ...
Aim: To determine the reported duration of illness, the functional and educational long-term outcomes, predictive factors for recovery and seek feedback regarding management in pediatric/adolescent myalgic encepahalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).Methods: A cohort observational study of 784 young people, mean age 14.6 (6-18) years, with ME/CFS diagnosed at a specialist pediatric hospital and receiving regular care, was conducted with follow-up for a mean 8 (range 1-21) years after onset. Baseline symptoms, history, depression and anxiety questionnaires were available from 418. The remaining 366, did not have similar standardized baseline information. Questionnaires requested functional rating, persistent symptoms, duration of illness if
Pterygium is a common ocular surface disorder often treated by surgical excision. One of the major limitations of pterygium excision is the high rate of postoperative recurrence. To reduce the recurrence rate adjunctive therapy such as β irradiation, mitomycin C, and 5-fluorouracil have been advocated. Raiskup and coworkers report the findings of a prospective non-comparative interventional case series of the use of mitomycin C following surgical excision of pterygium. In this series long term follow up revealed the use of mitomycin C is generally safe but a strict selection of patients and long term follow up are required.

Methods: Participants went for follow-up visits to one Japanese clinic which specializes in internal cardiovascular medicine and they were given diagnoses of CHF. 104 outpatients participated in this study and randomized control trial was implemented. An educational program was implemented for 6 months. The data were collected at baseline, 3, 6, 9, 12 months from both intervention and control groups and at 24 and 36 months from the intervention group. Results: There was significant improvement in New York Heart Association (NYHA) in the intervention group between baseline and 36 months. Improvement in weight monitoring and activities or exercise in the intervention group continued up to 36 months. Meanwhile, sodium restricted diets
FINDINGS: At a median follow-up of 11 years, the comparison of IFN 13 months versus IFN 25 months versus observation yielded estimated hazard ratios (HR) for RFS of 0.94 versus 0.84 (p = 0.06); for DMFI 0.95 versus 0.82 (p = 0.027); for DMFS 0.95 versus 0.84 (p = 0.07); and for OS 0·95 versus 0.84 (p = 0.08), respectively. The impact of treatment was greatest in the ulceration group, whereas in patients with non-ulcerated primaries the impact was null (HR ≥ 1.0). In patients with ulcerated melanoma the HR for IFN 13 months versus 25 months versus observation were for: RFS 0.82 (p = 0.16) versus 0.61 (p = 0.0008); DMFS 0.76 (p = 0.06) versus 0.57 (p = 0.0003); OS 0.80 (p = 0.13) versus 0.59 (p = 0.0007). In stage IIB/III-N1 (microscopic nodal involvement only) patients with ulcerated melanoma the HR estimates were for: RFS 0.85 versus 0.62; DMFS 0.80 versus 0.56; OS 0.77 versus 0.54 ...
p,,b,BACKGROUND: ,/b,The aim of this work was to establish recommendations for the medical follow-up of workers currently or previously exposed to lung carcinogens.,/p,,p,,b,METHODS: ,/b,A critical synthesis of the literature was conducted. Occupational lung carcinogenic substances were listed and classified according to their level of lung cancer risk. A targeted screening protocol was defined.,/p,,p,,b,RESULTS: ,/b,A clinical trial, National Lung Screnning Trial (NLST), showed the efficacy of chest CAT scan (CT) screening for populations of smokers aged 55-74 years with over 30 pack-years of exposure who had stopped smoking for less than 15 years. To propose screening in accordance with NLST criteria, and to account for occupational risk factors, screening among smokers and former smokers needs to consider the types of occupational exposure for which the risk level is at least equivalent to the risk of the subjects included in the NLST. The working group proposes an algorithm that estimates ...
Some athletes can manifest trivial abnormalities of 12 leads ECG without evidence of structural heart disease and are a difficult diagnostic problem because the natural history of these subjects it is still unknown. This article concerns a large series of top level athletes with long term follow up and demonstrates that markedly abnormal ECGs in young and apparently healthy athletes may represent the initial expression of underlying cardiomyopathies that may not be evident until many years later and that may ultimately be associated with adverse outcomes. Athletes with such ECG patterns merit continued clinical surveillance. Athletes with normal ECG during the inclusion did not manifest, during a long term follow up, any problem This article reinforces the usefulness of 12 leads ECG during athletes screening both in subjects with normal and in those with abnormal 12 leads ECG.. Evaluation of athletes ...

Since 1978 more than 300,000 sera from normal individuals were screened serologically in NPC high risk areas and prospective studies were carried out. Many patients were diagnosed in early stage. For example, in Wuzhou city, 20,726 persons over 40 years of age were screened; 1,138 persons were found to have IgA VCA antibody. Among them 18 NPC cases were detected; an additional 21 NPC patients were found within 5 year follow-up studies. Altogether there were 39 NPC patients. As compared to the patients in outpatient clinics, the frequency of NPC in stage I increased from 1.7% to 38.5% and in early stage (I + II) increased from 32% to 92.3%. IgA VCA antibody can be detected 5 years before the diagnosis of NPC in early stage was made. The detection rate of NPC from IgA VCA antibody-positive persons is 38-374 times the incidence rate of NPC in the general population of the same age group. Follow-up studies on the change of IgA VCA antibody titer in antibody-positive and antibody-negative groups were ...

Moderately early corticosteroid therapy (started at 7-14 days) reduces neonatal mortality and CLD, but at the cost of important short term adverse effects. Limited evidence concerning long term effects is provided by the trials included in this review. The methodological quality of the studies determining the long-term outcome is limited in some cases, the children have been assessed predominantly before school age, and no study has been sufficiently powered to detect important adverse long-term neurosensory outcomes. Therefore, given the risk:benefit ratio of short-term effects and the limited long-term follow-up data, it seems appropriate to reserve moderately early corticosteroid treatment to infants who cannot be weaned from mechanical ventilation and to minimise the dose and duration of any course of therapy. More research is urgently needed, including long term follow-up of survivors included in previous and any future trials, before the benefits and risks of postnatal steroid treatment, ...

Disc Height and Sagittal Alignment in Operated and Non-Operated Levels in the Lumbar Spine at Long-Term Follow-Up: A Case-Control Study
The investigators found that 24 rebleeds had occurred more than 1 year after treatment; of these, 13 were from the treated aneurysm (10 in the coiling group and three in the clipping group; log-rank P = .06 by intention-to-treat analysis). There were 8,447 person-years of follow-up in the coiling group and 8,177 person-years of follow-up in the clipping group. Four rebleeds occurred from a pre-existing aneurysm and six from new aneurysms. At 5 years, 11% (112 of 1,046) of the patients in the endovascular group and 14% (144 of 1,041) of the patients in the neurosurgical group had died (log-rank P = .03). The risk of death at 5 years was significantly lower in the coiling group than in the clipping group (relative risk, 0.77; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.61-0.98; P = .03), but the proportion of survivors at 5 years who were independent did not differ between the two groups: endovascular 83% (626 of 755) and neurosurgical 82% (584 of 713). The standardized mortality rate, conditional on survival ...

AASLD: "Incidence and pattern of "de novo" hepatocellular carcinoma in HCV patients treated with oral DAAs" Navigatore Study Group- (11/17/16) this was an oral presentation, authors conclude: "the results of this ongoing prospective study indicate that cirrhotic patients with HCV treatment with DAAs are not at increased risk of developing HCC compared to untreated patients. Development of HCC during/after DAAs was associated with more advanced disease and with treatment failure. A subgroup of patients treated with DAAs developed a more aggressive type of HCC suggesting that immunological/molecular changes in the liver mircoenvironment, possibly induced by rapid suppression of HCV replication, might boost growth and spread of microscopic and therefore initially invisible HCC foci. further studies are needed to better clarify this observation and to identify prospective markers. HCV patients treated with DAAs with advanced liver disease should continue to be closely monitored for HCC ...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic bronchitis (EB) presents as a chronic cough and sputum eosinophilia without airflow limitation and bronchial hyperreactivity. The long-term clinical courses remain unknown. OBJECTIVE AND METHOD: The aim of this study was to evaluate how frequently EB recurs and whether it develops into chronic airway obstruction. Cough severity, FEV1, PC20 methacholine and sputum eosinophil percentages were serially measured in 36 subjects for up to 48 months. RESULT: Five subjects developed recurrent episodes of EB (RG) between 4 to 6 months after the first episode of EB. Asthma developed in the 9th month of the study in one of these subjects and a progressive FEV1 reduction exceeding 20% was observed in two. Nineteen subjects had no recurrence of EB (NRG). However, sputum eosinophilia recurred between 4 and 24 months in 10 subjects of the NRG, though this was without cough or FEV1 reduction. The follow-up eosinophil percentages were significantly higher in the RG than NRG group with ...

The BARI 2D trial reported no significant differences in the primary end point of all-cause mortality or in the principal secondary end point of all-cause death/MI/stroke between patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus undergoing revascularization and those undergoing IMT or between strategies of IS and IP. However, in the CABG stratum, a significant reduction in major cardiovascular events (all-cause mortality/MI/stroke) was seen with CABG compared with IMT, largely because of a reduction in MI in patients within the IS strategy.7 In our original report, MI rates included only nonfatal MI events; in this article, the MI rates reported include both fatal and nonfatal MI events.. In BARI 2D, 43% of the total mortality was attributed to cardiac causes over the average 5.3-year follow-up. Cardiovascular deaths accounted for 37% to 53% of all-cause mortality in the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes Study Group (ACCORD), Veterans Affair Diabetes Trial (VADT), Action in Diabetes and ...
article{de66a93b-1594-4340-b9c4-beaf1b1f71f6, abstract = {Long term follow up of 16 homosexual men and 78 intravenous drug abusers who were chronic carriers of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) showed fundamental differences between the two groups. Viral replication, expressed by the presence of hepatitis B e antigen, lasted for four years or more in 10 out of 14 (71%) of the homosexual men whereas it was not present in 43 out of 73 (59%) of the drug addicts within one year. This shows a difference in the immunological response between homosexual HBsAg carriers and addicts that is not related to infection with human T cell lymphotropic virus type III. Severe histological damage such as chronic aggressive hepatitis, cirrhosis, or primary liver cancer was found in more than half of the homosexual men who underwent biopsy examinations. In drug addicts chronic persistent hepatitis was a regular finding in the absence of markers of delta infection, but in those addicts infected with the delta agent ...
Objective: To assess the long-term prognostic value of plasma N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) after major vascular surgery.. Design: A single-centre prospective cohort study.. Patients: 335 patients who underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair or lower extremity bypass surgery.. Interventions: Prior to surgery, baseline NT-proBNP level was measured. Patients were also evaluated for cardiac risk factors according to the Revised Cardiac Risk Index. Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) was performed to detect stress-induced myocardial ischaemia.. Main outcome measures: The prognostic value of NT-proBNP was evaluated for the endpoints all-cause mortality and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) during long-term follow-up.. Results: In this patient cohort (mean age: 62 years, 76% male), median NT-proBNP level was 186 ng/l (interquartile range: 65-444 ng/l). During a mean follow-up of 14 (SD 6) months, 49 patients (15%) died and 50 (15%) experienced a MACE. Using receiver ...
