Respiratory symptoms and long-term risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and other causes in Swedish men. (1/10952)

BACKGROUND: Depressed respiratory function and respiratory symptoms are associated with impaired survival. The present study was undertaken to assess the relation between respiratory symptoms and mortality from cardiovascular causes, cancer and all causes in a large population of middle-aged men. METHODS: Prospective population study of 6442 men aged 51-59 at baseline, free of clinical angina pectoris and prior myocardial infarction. RESULTS: During 16 years there were 1804 deaths (786 from cardiovascular disease, 608 from cancer, 103 from pulmonary disease and 307 from any other cause). Men with effort-related breathlessness had increased risk of dying from all of the examined diseases. After adjustment for age, smoking habit and other risk factors, the relative risk (RR) associated with breathlessness of dying from coronary disease was 1.43 (95% CI : 1.16-1.77), from stroke 1.77 (95% CI: 1.07-2.93), from any cardiovascular disease 1.48 (95% CI : 1.24-1.76), cancer 1.36 (95% CI : 1.11-1.67) and from any cause 1.62 (95% CI: 1.44-1.81). An independent effect of breathlessness on cardiovascular death, cancer death and mortality from all causes was found in life-time non-smokers, and also if men with chest pain not considered to be angina were excluded. An independent effect was also found if all deaths during the first half of the follow-up were excluded. Men with cough and phlegm, without breathlessness, also had an elevated risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and cancer, but after adjustment for smoking and other risk factors this was no longer significant. However, a slightly elevated independent risk of dying from any cause was found (RR = 1.18 [95% CI: 1.02-1.36]). CONCLUSION: A positive response to a simple question about effort related breathlessness predicted subsequent mortality from several causes during a follow-up period of 16 years, independently of smoking and other risk factors.  (+info)

A review of statistical methods for estimating the risk of vertical human immunodeficiency virus transmission. (2/10952)

BACKGROUND: Estimation of the risk of vertical transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has been complicated by the lack of a reliable diagnostic test for paediatric HIV infection. METHODS: A literature search was conducted to identify all statistical methods that have been used to estimate HIV vertical transmission risk. Although the focus of this article is the analysis of birth cohort studies, ad hoc studies are also reviewed. CONCLUSIONS: The standard method for estimating HIV vertical transmission risk is biased and inefficient. Various alternative analytical approaches have been proposed but all involve simplifying assumptions and some are difficult to implement. However, early diagnosis/exclusion of infection is now possible because of improvements in polymerase chain reaction technology and complex estimation methods should no longer be required. The best way to analyse studies conducted in breastfeeding populations is still unclear and deserves attention in view of the many intervention studies being planned or conducted in developing countries.  (+info)

Hygiene behaviour in rural Nicaragua in relation to diarrhoea. (3/10952)

BACKGROUND: Childhood diarrhoea is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Nicaragua. Amongst the risk factors for its transmission are 'poor' hygiene practices. We investigated the effect of a large number of hygiene practices on diarrhoeal disease in children aged <2 years and validated the technique of direct observation of hygiene behaviour. METHODS: A prospective follow-up study was carried out in a rural zone of Nicaragua. From the database of a previously conducted case-control study on water and sanitation 172 families were recruited, half of which had experienced a higher than expected rate of diarrhoea in their children and the other half a lower rate. Hygiene behaviour was observed over two mornings and diarrhoea incidence was recorded with a calendar, filled out by the mother, and collected every week for 5 months. RESULTS: Of 46 'good' practices studied, 39 were associated with a lower risk of diarrhoea, five were unrelated and only for two a higher risk was observed. Washing of hands, domestic cleanliness (kitchen, living room, yard) and the use of a diaper/underclothes by the child had the strongest protective effect. Schooling (>3 years of primary school) and better economic position (possession of a radio) had a positive influence on general hygiene behaviour, education having a slightly stronger effect when a radio was present. Individual hygiene behaviour appeared to be highly variable in contrast with the consistent behaviour of the community as a whole. Feasible and appropriate indicators of hygiene behaviour were found to be domestic cleanliness and the use of a diaper or underclothes by the child. CONCLUSION: A consistent relationship between almost all hygiene practices and diarrhoea was detected, more schooling producing better hygiene behaviour. The high variability of hygiene behaviour at the individual level requires repeated observations (at least two) before and after the hygiene education in the event one wants to measure the impact of the campaign on the individual.  (+info)

Comparison of active and cancer registry-based follow-up for breast cancer in a prospective cohort study. (4/10952)

The authors compared the relative effectiveness of two distinct follow-up designs in prospective cohort studies--the active approach, based on direct contact with study subjects, and the passive approach, based on record linkages with population-based cancer registries--utilizing available information from the New York University Women's Health Study (WHS) and the New York State Cancer Registry (NYSCR). The analyses were limited to breast cancer cases identified during the period 1985-1992, for which follow-up was considered reasonably complete by both the WHS and the NYSCR. Among 12,947 cohort members who reported a New York State address, 303 pathologically confirmed cases were identified through active follow-up and 284 through record linkage. Sixty-three percent of cancers were identified by both sources, 21% by the WHS only, and 16% by the NYSCR only. The agreement was appreciably better for invasive cancers. The percentage of cases identified only by the NYSCR was increased among subjects whose active follow-up was incomplete, as well as among nonwhites, obese patients, and parous patients. This suggests that relying on either type of follow-up alone may introduce certain biases in evaluating risk factors for breast cancer. Combining both approaches appears to be a better strategy in prospective cohort studies.  (+info)

Capture-recapture models including covariate effects. (5/10952)

Capture-recapture methods are used to estimate the incidence of a disease, using a multiple-source registry. Usually, log-linear methods are used to estimate population size, assuming that not all sources of notification are dependent. Where there are categorical covariates, a stratified analysis can be performed. The multinomial logit model has occasionally been used. In this paper, the authors compare log-linear and logit models with and without covariates, and use simulated data to compare estimates from different models. The crude estimate of population size is biased when the sources are not independent. Analyses adjusting for covariates produce less biased estimates. In the absence of covariates, or where all covariates are categorical, the log-linear model and the logit model are equivalent. The log-linear model cannot include continuous variables. To minimize potential bias in estimating incidence, covariates should be included in the design and analysis of multiple-source disease registries.  (+info)

Premature morbidity from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in women with systemic lupus erythematosus. (6/10952)

OBJECTIVE: To determine rates of morbidity due to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases among women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: I used the California Hospital Discharge Database, which contains information on all discharges from acute care hospitals in California, to identify women with SLE who had been hospitalized for treatment of either acute myocardial infarction (AMI), congestive heart failure (CHF), or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) from 1991 to 1994. I compared the proportions of hospitalizations for each cause among women with SLE with those in a group of women without SLE, for 3 age strata (18-44 years, 45-64 years, and > or =65 years). RESULTS: Compared with young women without SLE, young women with SLE were 2.27 times more likely to be hospitalized because of AMI (95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.08-3.46), 3.80 times more likely to be hospitalized because of CHF (95% CI 2.41-5.19), and 2.05 times more likely to be hospitalized because of CVA (95% CI 1.17-2.93). Among middle-aged women with SLE, the frequencies of hospitalization for AMI and CVA did not differ from those of the comparison group, but the risk of hospitalization for CHF was higher (odds ratio [OR] 1.39, 95% CI 1.05-1.73). Among elderly women with SLE, the risk of hospitalization for AMI was significantly lower (OR 0.70, 95% CI 0.51-0.89), the risk of hospitalization for CHF was higher (OR 1.25, 95% CI 1.01-1.49), and the risk of hospitalization for CVA was not significantly different from those in the comparison group. CONCLUSION: Young women with SLE are at substantially increased risk of AMI, CHF, and CVA. The relative odds of these conditions decrease with age among women with SLE.  (+info)

Gallstones, cholecystectomy and risk of cancers of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas. (7/10952)

To examine the association between gallstones and cholecystectomy, we conducted a nationwide population-based cohort study in Denmark. Patients with a discharge diagnosis of gallstones from 1977 to 1989 were identified from the Danish National Registry of Patients and followed up for cancer occurrence until death or the end of 1993 by record linkage to the Danish Cancer Registry. Included in the cohort were 60 176 patients, with 471 450 person-years of follow-up. Cancer risks were estimated by standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) stratified by years of follow-up and by cholecystectomy status. Among patients without cholecystectomy, the risks at 5 or more years of follow-up were significantly elevated for cancers of liver (SIR = 2.0, CI = 1.2-3.1) and gallbladder (SIR = 2.7, CI = 1.5-4.4) and near unity for cancers of extrahepatic bile duct (SIR = 1.1), ampulla of Vater (SIR = 1.0) and pancreas (SIR = 1.1). The excess risk of liver cancer was seen only among patients with a history of hepatic disease. Among cholecystectomy patients, the risks at 5 or more years of follow-up declined for cancers of liver (SIR = 1.1) and extrahepatic bile duct (SIR = 0.7), but were elevated for cancers of ampulla of Vater (SIR = 2.0, CI = 1.0-3.7) and pancreas (SIR = 1.3, CI = 1.1-1.6). These findings confirm that gallstone disease increases the risk of gallbladder cancer, whereas cholecystectomy appears to increase the risk of cancers of ampulla of Vater and pancreas. Further research is needed to clarify the carcinogenic risks associated with gallstones and cholecystectomy and to define the mechanisms involved.  (+info)

Cancer incidence in the south Asian population of England (1990-92). (8/10952)

Cancer incidence among English south Asians (residents in England with ethnic origins in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh) is described and compared with non-south Asian and Indian subcontinent rates. The setting for the study was areas covered by Thames, Trent, West Midlands and Yorkshire cancer registries. The study identified 356 555 cases of incident cancer (ICD9:140-208) registered between 1990 and 1992, including 3845 classified as English south Asian. The main outcome measures were age specific and directly standardized incidence rates for all cancer sites (ICD9:140-208). English south Asian incidence rates for all sites combined were significantly lower than non-south Asian rates but higher than Indian subcontinent rates. English south Asian rates were substantially higher than Indian subcontinent rates for a number of common sites including lung cancer in males, breast cancer in females and lymphoma in both sexes. English south Asian rates for childhood and early adult cancer (0-29 years) were similar or higher than non-south Asian rates. English south Asian rates were significantly higher than non-south Asian rates for Hodgkin's disease in males, cancer of the tongue, mouth, oesophagus, thyroid gland and myeloid leukaemia in females, and cancer of the hypopharynx, liver and gall bladder in both sexes. The results are consistent with a transition from the lower cancer risk of the country of ethnic origin to that of the country of residence. They suggest that detrimental changes in lifestyle and other exposures have occurred in the migrant south Asian population.  (+info)

EUROTRANSFER Registry is a prospective, international, web-based European Registry on Patients with ST-Elevation MI Transferred for Mechanical Reperfusion (PCI) with a Special Focus on Upstream Use of Abciximab.. This registry is designed to collect data on approximately 1800 patients during a 12 month enrollment period in up to 20 interventional cardiology centres with hospital transfer networks from all over Europe.. Analysis of this registry should allow to monitor transfer timelines of patients arriving to the cath-lab from the regional hospital with or without upstream start of abciximab and scheduled for mechanical reperfusion (PCI) as well as to monitor regional differences across Europe in regard to the impact that time of various stages of the treatment chain may have on clinical outcomes. ...
Background-Conflicting evidence exists regarding sex-based outcomes following coronary stenting. Methods and Results-Data on 426,996 patients ≥65 years old (42.3% women) from the National Cardiovascular Data Registry® CathPCI Registry® (2004-2008) were linked to Medicare inpatient claims to compare in-hospital outcomes by sex and long-term outcomes by sex and stent type. In-hospital complications were more frequent in women than men : death (3869 [2.2%] vs. 3737 [1.6%]; adjusted odds ratio [OR] 1.41, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.33-1.49), MI (2365 [1.3%] vs. 2858 [1.2%]; OR 1.19, 95% CI 1.11-1.27), bleeding (7860 [4.4%] vs. 5627 [2.3%]; OR 1.86, 95% CI 1.79-1.93), and vascular complications (2381 [1.3%] vs. 1648 [0.7%]; OR 1.85, 95% CI 1.73-1.99). At 20.4 months, women had lower adjusted risk of death (hazard ratio [HR] 0.92, 95% CI 0.90-0.94), but similar rates of MI, revascularization, and bleeding. Relative to bare metal stent (BMS), drug-eluting stent (DES) use was associated with ...
American Cancer Society (NAACCR Member). A validation study was conducted to compare verified self-reports of cancer diagnoses to information in population based cancer registries. Results demonstrate that linkage with the nationwide network of state cancer registries can be a highly sensitive method of identifying diagnoses of most types of cancer among participants in large nationwide research studies.. For the study, registry staff at 23 state cancer registries conducted standardized linkages with a subset of participants in Cancer Prevention Study 3 (CPS-3), a relatively new American Cancer Society (ACS) study including over 300,000 cancer-free U.S. men and women enrolled in 35 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. ACS researchers plan to follow CPS-3 participants through linkage with state cancer registries for at least 20 years in order to study how a wide range of lifestyle, nutritional, medical, genetic, environmental, and other factors are related to risk of cancer.

The transition to value-based care requires accountability for patient outcomes, evaluating the effectiveness of interventions, and making technical and organizational changes - all within an evolving and sometimes complicated payment system. The ability to demonstrate and quantify the value of physical therapist interventions is powerful leverage, when it comes to fair payment for physical therapist services currently covered under insurance plans, as well as for some services not covered, such as prevention. Data analytics tools - and particularly clinical data registries - can help providers meet these challenges in their own clinics and position the profession for success within the health care ecosystem.. In APTAs strategic plans for 2013 and 2014 one of the highest objectives was the development of the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry (Registry).. Upon the launch of the registry in 2017, APTA President Sharon L. Dunn, said, The Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry will provide data from ...
It is difficult to maintain a registry on sex workers as they move from one place to another but the government has been able to reach out to them and HIV infection among them has gone down, the Rajya Sabha was told. In a written reply to the upper house, Minister of State for Health Dinesh Trivedi said despite not maintaining a registry, they have been able to reach out to the community.

Sex workers move from one place to another and assume different names which makes it difficult to keep a registry, he said ...
The most successful outcomes-oriented patient registries incorporate direct utilization of the data within the day-to-day operations of the clinical setting. A critical component to this approach is the development of clinical reports that facilitate the efficient and accurate comprehension of data. In additional to general organization, the following design techniques are explored: color, spatial relationships, prioritization (high-frequency questions), summation, minimization, standardized timeline, clinic note generation, and key item extraction. A case example using an epilepsy patient registry in Studytrax is presented. Why A Clinical Report?. Patient registries are a common mechanism used for the advancement and understanding of the natural history and treatment of various disease states. All patient registries are both over-and-under inclusive depending on the aims which will be the topic of multiple upcoming articles. For this article, it is important to note that irrespective of whats ...

Poor-grade aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) is associated with very high mortality and morbidity. Our limited knowledge on predictors of long-term outcome in poor-grade patients with aSAH definitively managed comes from retrospective and prospective studies of small case series of patients in single center. The purpose of the AMPAS is to determine the long-term outcomes in poor-grade patients with different managements within different time after aSAH, and identify the independent predictors of the outcome that help guide the decision on definitive management. The AMPAS study is a prospective, multicenter, observational registry of consecutive hospitalized patients with poor grade aSAH (WFNS grade IV and V). The aim is to enroll at least 226 poor-grade patients in 11 high-volume medical centers (eg, |150 aSAH cases per year) affiliated to different universities in China. This study will describe poor grade patients and aneurysm characteristics, treatment strategies (modality and time of
Cameroon began modernising its civil registration and vital statistics system in 2009, and from 2011 as part of the Programme for the Rehabilitation of the Civil Registration System. The subordinate National Civil Registration Authority, established in 2015, is to support the implementation of the national reform. But the standards recommended by the United Nations for civil registration systems, namely the continuous, mandatory, permanent and universal collection of vital events, have not been met. The statistical function of the civil registration system has also not yet been achieved. The module target is: the Ministry of Dezentralisation and Local Development, the National Civil Registration Authority and selected municipalities are in the position to ensure the implementation of an inclusive and accountable system of civil registration and vital statistics..

For facilities with new tumor registrars, CCR offered training sessions and a 100 percent evaluation of their abstracts ...
Trauma registries are essential to trauma systems, to enable collection of the data needed to enhance clinical knowledge and monitor system performance. The King Saud Medical City (KSMC) in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is aiming to become a Level 1 Trauma Centre, and required a trauma registry in order to do so. Our objective was to establish the Saudi TraumA Registry (STAR) at the (KSMC) and ready it for national deployment. The challenge was that no formal trauma data collection had occurred previously and clinicians had no prior experience of trauma registries. To develop the registry, a novel 12 step implementation plan was created and followed at the KSMC. Registry criteria and a Minimum Dataset were selected; training was delivered; database specifications were written; operating procedures were developed and regular reporting was initiated. Data collection commenced on August 1st 2017. The registry was fully operational by April 2018, eight months ahead of schedule. During the first year
Introduction: Community ECG screening programs estimate the prevalence of long QT syndrome (LQTS) at 4/10000. Detection of individuals by such screening is controversial due to the poor sensitivity and specificity of the ECG. An alternative approach is the active identification of probands and screening of family members using a clinical registry. This analysis considers the effectiveness of such an approach in a cardiac/genetic registry in operation for 13 years.. Methods: A consent-based clinical registry for LQTS patients has been in operation in the Northern region of New Zealand (population 2.06 million) since 1999 and has been accompanied by efforts to raise awareness of LQTS. Living probands are referred by pediatric or cardiology services, and unexplained sudden death victims are referred by pathologists. Cascade clinical and genetic screening is carried out in family members to identify presymptomatic individuals at risk. Individuals were defined as either definitely affected (QTc ...

View more ,Background and Purpose: Despite evidence to support the prescription of antihypertensive medications before hospital discharge to promote medication adherence and prevent recurrent events, many patients with stroke miss out on these medications at discharge. We aimed to examine patient, clinical, and system-level differences in the prescription of antihypertensive medications at hospital discharge after stroke. Methods: Adults with acute ischemic stroke or intracerebral hemorrhage alive at discharge were included (years 2009-2013) from 39 hospitals participating in the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry. Patient comorbidities were identified using the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (Tenth Edition, Australian Modification) codes from the hospital admissions and emergency presentation data. The outcome variable and other system factors were derived from the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry dataset. Multivariable, multilevel logistic ...

On February 8, 2018, the Physician Clinical Registry Coalition submitted a letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expressing our ongoing concerns about information blocking by electronic health record (EHR) vendors.. The Coalition strongly advocated for the information blocking language included within the 21st Century Cures Act to prevent EHR vendors from blocking the transmission of clinical outcomes data to third parties, such as clinical data registries. The Cures Act prohibits EHR vendors from interfering with, preventing, or materially discouraging the access, exchange, or use of electronic health information, and grants the HHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) the authority to investigate and impose penalties upon an EHR vendor that engages in such information blocking. The ability of clinical data registries to access patient information from EHR ...
Data on the mean age at childbearing can be obtained from three sources: civil registration systems, sample surveys and censuses. Civil registration systems are considered the best source of information on the mean age at childbearing. However, some countries, especially those in the less developed regions, either lack a civil registration system or have a registration system whose coverage is too incomplete to be utilized for statistical purposes. Civil registration systems are considered to be complete if they cover 90 per cent or more of all live births taking place within a country or area.. In countries where civil registration systems are lacking, surveys and censuses can be utilized to estimate the mean age at childbearing. Such information is generally obtained from questions regarding the number of live births that occurred in the household in the 12 months preceding the census or survey enumeration, questions on the date of birth of the last child born alive in the household or, in the ...

So, could you save Emilys life? You may be an eligible donor.. The Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry states that bone marrow registration requires blood, taken through a needle in the arm. They would ideally take up to 470ml, as this would constitute a blood donation as well. Your bone marrow tissue type would be determined and the details recorded on the registry. There is a 1 in 1000 chance, per year, of being identified as a potential match. If so, more blood is required to harvest stem cells. Potential donors are retired form the registry on their 60th birthday.. The recruitment and education of potential bone marrow donors is essential. New members worldwide are needed to allow sufficient genetic diversity in the donor pool to meet patient needs. Only 1 in 3 donors are found from a patients family, with 2 out of 3 relying on bone marrow from international registries. The European registries have been established over a longer period of time. It is time now to educate the Asian ...
The EORP AF General Registry was conducted by the European Society for Cardiology (ESC) within the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) and was designed to provide information on the implemention of the current ESC guidelines in the everyday medical care of patients with atrial fibrillation and the influence of different therapies on the course of the disease. As an extension of the European registry, AFNET (Atrial Fibrillation Network) has initiated the AFNET-2 Registry (EORP) together with the ESC and the „German Society for Cardiology (DGK). In this registry the current treatment status of patients in Germany with atrial fibrillation was documented. Since the European EORP AF General Registry included cardiologic study sites, these data did not reflect the standard of treatment of atrial fibrillation in Germany. In Germany, most patients are not treated in cardiological departments or practices, but by general practitioners or specialists for internal medicine without a focus on ...

IMPORTANCE:The Hispanic epidemiologic paradox is the phenomenon that non-US-born Hispanic mothers who immigrate to the United States have better pregnancy outcomes than their US-born counterparts. It is unknown whether this advantage extends to childhood cancer risk. OBJECTIVE:To determine whether the risk for childhood cancers among Hispanic children varies by maternal birthplace. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS:In this population-based case-control study conducted in June 2015, cohort members were identified through California birth records of children born in California from January 1, 1983, to December 31, 2011. Information on cancer diagnoses was obtained from California Cancer Registry records from 1988 to 2012. Cases (n = 13 666) were identified from among children younger than 6 years in the California Cancer Registry and matched to California birth certificates. Control children (n = 15 513 718) included all other children born in California during the same period. Maternal birthplace ...

To our knowledge, this study represents the first evaluation of a tobacco use registry used in a fashion similar to other chronic disease registries and reporting positive provider behaviors. Multiple corroborating pieces of evidence demonstrate that the use of the tobacco use registry decision support tool resulted in significant changes (a 2- to 4-fold increase) in the adoption of evidenced-based tobacco use treatments (counseling and pharmacotherapy). In many cases these increases are far beyond those achieved with other system-based interventions.18 While others have reported the impact of different delivery modes in the provision of the 5 As in the primary care setting, the studies have not included the application of a chronic disease registry or the use of broad measures associated with tobacco use, such as pneumococcal vaccine.13 Our tobacco registry form included depression screening prompts, which also were included in the other chronic disease registries.14 We have not reported on ...

There is no privacy with tracking registries Texas privacy invasion will become common among the several states The article below has confirmed our worst fears about the true nature of statewide vaccine tracking registries. Dawn Richardson, founder of PROVE in Texas, initiated legislation in that state to require parental consent prior to children being placed in a vaccine data registry. When Idaho introduced its vaccine tracking registry in SB 1183, there was so much opposition that there were five pages of amendments added to the original bill, which included requiring parental consent to be placed in the registry. Our biggest concern was that despite all the amendments, there was no penalty for being placed in the registry without parental consent. After all, what good is a database of this sort statistically if you have selective participation? There also is no protection for those who choose to abstain from vaccinations as well as the registry. Discrimination against those who choose to ...
Results In total, 7.5% (95% CI 7.2 to 7.9) of all spontaneous births were preterm. The prevalence of preterm birth according to the mothers BMI was 7.3% (95% CI 6.9 to 7.7) for normal weight, 7.6% (95% CI 6.4 to 8.9) for underweight, 8.2% (95% CI 7.4 to 9.1) for overweight and 8.3% (95% CI 7.0 to 9.6) for obese women. The risk of spontaneous preterm birth was increased in overweight women compare to normal weight mothers (crude OR 1.15, 95% CI 1.13 to 1.31). After adjustment for marital status and education, increased risks of preterm delivery were found in both overweight (OR 1.18, 95% CI 1.04 to 1.34) and obese women (OR 1.21, 95% CI 1.00 to 1.45). Further adjustment for age, parity, infant sex, smoking and alcohol abuse, reduced the associations to non-significant level. ...

Европейский регистр ведения инфекции Helicobacter pylori: особенности диагностики и лечения в Казани
Background: Various studies have produced conflicting results on whether statins increase the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) yet many studies show a protective effect for those on statins at the time of acute ischemic stroke (AIS). This study assesses the characteristics and outcomes of patients having intracerebral hemorrhage and statin use in the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry (PCNASR).. Methods: There were 103,491patients with AIS and 16,319 with ICH enrolled in the PCNASR during 2009-2011. Chi-square tests were used to test for association of clinical characteristics with ICH and ICH with statin use. Logistic regression analysis was used to assess factors associated with odds of ICH vs. AIS and mortality among ICH patients.. Results: Of 16,319 patients with ICH, 5,522 were on statins at the time of ICH (33.8%). Among ICH patients, mean age was 72.8 for statin users (S) and 65.3 for non-statin users (NS) (p,0.0001). Median NIHSS score was 7 for ICH on S and 9 for ICH ...
In this multiethnic population of patients with stroke with long-term follow-up, we found significant associations of SED with many provisions of acute and long-term stroke care. More indicators of stroke care seemed to be inversely related to SED in black patients than in white patients. There were more inequalities in stroke care in those whose stroke occurred before 2001.. To our knowledge the current study is the first to compare SED impact on stroke care between white patients and black patients who live in high-income countries. The SLSR data includes the largest proportion of black and minority ethnicity patients in the world. Although living in the same society in the UK, black people generally have lower levels of education and occupational class and are poorer than white people.

A much earlier multicenter study performed with the collaboration of the World Health Organization21 showed that the incidence rates for all types of stroke in Israel are similar to those in several European countries, but they are significantly less than those in Japan and Finland. The reasons for the discrepancy between Israel and other countries can only be speculated on; they apparently include genetic factors, stress, diet, lack of alcoholism, and the nature of the medical services providing treatment of risk factors such as hypertension.. As in ...

Methods and analysis All adults (,18 years of age) alive and living in Denmark in 1996-2017 will be identified in The Danish Civil Registration System. Incident patients with RA are identified in the Danish National Patient Registry (DNPR) and the nationwide rheumatology registry, DANBIO, in which information on, for example, antirheumatic treatments, disease characteristics and smoking is collected prospectively in routine care. Information on comorbidities, invasive procedures and prescribed drugs are identified in the DNPR and in The Register of Medicinal Product Statistics. Socioeconomic status is evaluated in national registers on income and education. Incident cases of first-time SAB are identified in The Danish National SAB Database. All registers are linked on an individual level by unique civil registration numbers. Incidence rates and incidence rate ratios will be analysed using Poisson regression models and the impact of possible risk factors will be evaluated. ...

We did a retrospective, case-only analysis of pancreatic cancer cases in the California Cancer Registry (CCR) database. The CCR is the largest contiguous-area, population-based cancer registry in the world, collecting ,130,000 new cancer cases per year in California, as described elsewhere (6, 14). The state of California legally mandated cancer reporting in 1988; standardized data collection procedures and quality control procedures have been in place ever since (15, 16). The CCR is part of the National Cancer Institutes Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program. Case reporting is estimated at 98% for the entire state of California, and follow-up completion rates exceed 95% (17, 18). Because of data completeness, timeliness, and accuracy, CCR has received the highest level of certification from the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (19). Data were abstracted from medical and laboratory records by trained tumor registrars according to Cancer Reporting in ...
Rather than traveling miles to a registry center or to see a specific doctor, patients who wish to enroll in the registry may do so on their own, for free, from the comfort of their own home. The registration process may be conducted entirely online or by mail. Patients provide basic contact, demographic, and clinical information, which is stored in a secure database system at Sanford. Only researchers who have secured Institutional Review Board and advisory board approval from Sanford Research and staff may view the de-identified data. If a researcher wishes to contact an enrolled patient, the researcher must first contact CoRDS. CoRDS in turn contacts the patient with the researchers information. It is up to the patient whether he or she wishes to proceed by contacting the researcher. If the patient wishes to enroll in the researchers study, the patient goes through an entirely separate consent process specific to the study. This process gives patients greater access to registry services and ...

Age/sex registries have been examined as a method of estimating the number of individuals served by a primary care practice. These data can be used in estimating disease frequency from primary care encounter data. The experience with age/sex registries in the Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network (ASPN) has identified three major sources of error when registry data are used to estimate disease rates: (1) studies using medical encounter data exclude those individuals who do not seek medical care, (2) visitation is not random and is a function of variables in addition to disease incidence, and (3) encounter data from primary care practices are incomplete due to reporting problems and patient-initiated visits to other health care providers. Despite these limitations, age/sex registries can provide a practical tool for estimating disease rates in appropriate settings, assessing the generalizability of results, and assessing the feasibility of studies in practice based research. Further research about ...
Canadian Cancer Statistics 2007 is prepared, printed and distributed through a collaboration of the Canadian Cancer Society, the Public Health Agency of Canada, the National Cancer Institute of Canada, Statistics Canada, provincial/territorial cancer registries, as well as university-based and provincial/territorial cancer agency-based cancer researchers.. Notes:. Five-year relative survival is the proportion of people alive five years after their diagnosis, adjusted for the deaths expected for people of the same age in the general population. Relative survival is the most often used method for analyzing the survival of cancer patients across a population.. Survival is calculated from the date of diagnosis to five years after diagnosis. In Quebec the date of diagnosis is determined differently than other provinces and, as a result, Quebec survival cannot be compared with survival data from other provinces.. Age-standardized rates refer to the number of people per 100,000 who are diagnosed, or ...
Importance With increasing prevalence of atopic dermatitis (AD) and its manifestation in most countries, together with the supporting evidence of the progression to other atopic phenotypes, AD has developed into a worldwide public health concern.

A bridal registry or wedding registry, is a service provided by a website or retail store that assists engaged couples in the communication of gift preferences to wedding guests. Selecting items from store stock, the couple lists desired items and files this list with the chosen merchant. The list is then made available to wedding guests, either by the couples family or by the merchant. Upon the purchase of a listed item, the merchant updates the gift registry accordingly. In addition to providing valuable information for the buyer, the system helps prevent the receipt of duplicate or unwanted gifts, potentially saving time for both giver and recipient. The Chicago-founded department store Marshall Fields first instituted the practice of a bridal registry in 1924 at its Marshall Field and Company Building as a means for the engaged couple to indicate chosen china, silver and crystal patterns to family and friends. US-based Target stores pioneered the electronic self-service gift registry in ...

Purpose of the study: Examining long-term patterns of mortality among cancer survivors compared to the general population may inform planning for surveillance and follow-up care. We investigated excess mortality after endometrial cancer using conditional relative survival estimates and standardized mortality ratios (SMRs). Methods: Women diagnosed with endometrial cancer during 2000-2017 (N = 183,153) were identified in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. SMRs were calculated as observed deaths among endometrial cancer survivors over expected deaths among demographically similar women in the general U.S. population. Five-year relative survival was estimated at diagnosis and each additional year survived up to 12 years post-diagnosis, conditional on survival up to that year. Results: For the full cohort, 5-year relative survival was 87.7%, 96.2%, and 97.1% at 1, 5, and 10 years post- diagnosis. respectively. Conditional 5-year relative survival first exceeded 95%, ...
