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

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searched on Medline and Psychinfo 1963-1998 and investigators known to be interested in alternate Tx were contacted for unpublished data.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

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

The good news is that much has been achieved since the publication of the Maitland Commissions famous Missing Link report. Measured in conventional terms, such as teledensity or percentage of households with a telephone, there has been a substantial narrowing of the gap. Africa now has more than twice as many main telephone connections as Tokyo and 85 percent of todays world population share 45 percent of all telephone lines (see Figure 1). In comparison, in 1984, 90 percent of the worlds people used only ten percent of all telephone lines.. The bad news is that the mismatch between the technology-rich and the technology-poor seems to be a step ahead and while we are still filling the gap of the 1980s, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) wave of the 1990s risks digging new holes behind our back. The two major market trends that have characterized the last decade - the growth of mobile communications and the development of the Internet - were not foreseen in the Maitland report. ...
WR) 304. The Fourth Aim: A Toolkit for Medical Educators to Develop Resilience, Maintain Professional Satisfaction, and Restore Joy to Teaching and Medical Practice. Research on burnout in medicine has revealed an epidemic. Higher prevalence (40 to 80%) is noted among medical residents and fellows compared to medical students, physicians, or college graduates of similar age. Among internists, burnout approaches 60%. High rates of burnout also apply to medical educators, which is especially troubling given that we serve two constituencies: patients and learners. There is potential for triple damage: to ourselves, our patients, and our learners. This erosion of professional satisfaction in a profession charged with healing is troubling. It forces us to ask a difficult question; How can we effectively enhance a sense of self-worth and physical integrity in the people we serve, if we ourselves have become seriously deficient (even impaired) in these areas? The Triple Aim, developed by the Institute ...
At the same time, the UNs International Labour Organisation released figures concluding that levels of anxiety, burnout and depression are spiralling out of control, costing employers billions of pounds in lost working time. In the UK, it says, three out of every ten employees experience mental health problems and work-related stress and resulting illnesses are common.. More doomladen statistics are expected to be revealed next week as thousands of human resources professionals gather in Harrogate for the annual Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development conference, where a major survey on the work-life balance among UK workers will be released.. Cynics might suggest people have always moaned about work, and all that has changed is people have simply become more vociferous.. Americanisation.

Speaking at the Growing Kalgoorlie-Boulder 2018 Economic Development Conference in Perth, Mr Reed said the proposed site was well situated, 70km from its part-owned Mt Marion lithium mine, and provided an opportunity to minimise costs while capitalising on the lithium market rise.. "The mine is 70km from road from the proposed refinery site," Mr Reed said.. "Currently, we are exporting that out of Kwinana up into China, so it gives us an advantage - we save ourselves 700km of transport.. "It will give us a competitive advantage over the Chinese lithium hydroxide converters and theyre currently about 70 per cent of the market.". The two-year option provides Neometals the time needed to undertake due diligence on the touted refinery, on which it plans to make an investment decision by June next year.. Neometals and City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder council have also signed a memorandum of understanding to help obtain infrastructure and utilities for the plant.. The agreement comes after the company last ...
The rate of cesarean delivery in the United States is at a record high and continues to increase. Conversely, rates of vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC) have declined (to 12.7 percent in 2002 from 28.3 percent in 1996). Childbirth accounts for about one quarter of hospital admissions for U.S. women. Guise and colleagues conducted an extensive review to evaluate the benefits and harms of VBAC and elective repeat cesarean delivery.. The authors searched electronic databases for relevant published articles, systematic reviews, clinical trials, and reports. They also sought evidence from reference lists and contacted experts for recommendations. Relevant evidence arising since the 1980 National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on VBAC was sought. Clinical studies conducted in developed countries were eligible for inclusion if they contained at least 10 patients and provided data about uterine rupture, VBAC rates, and maternal and fetal outcomes, and were not focused ...

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