Downloadable (with restrictions)! Using the non-parametric rank tests proposed by Breitung (2001), we set out in this study to determine whether any non-linear long-run equilibrium relationship exists between the stock and real estate markets of Western European countries. We go on to adopt the threshold error-correction model (TECM) to determine whether a similar relationship is discernible possibly non-linear functions of the log-price of these two markets. The findings clearly point to the existence of long-run unidirectional and bidirectional causality between the real estate market and the stock market in regions both above and below the threshold level. Finally, we find the existence of both wealth and credit price effects in the real estate markets and stock markets of Western European countries, which thereby offer financial institutions and individual investors in their construction of long-term investment portfolios within these two asset markets.
The occurrence of AIDS led in every Western European country to exceptional innovations in prevention, patient care, health policy and questions of civil rights. This exception can be explained above all by the fact that not only was a health catastrophe feared but also civilizational harm in the field of civil rights. Despite national differences, this brought about similar exceptionalist alliances consisting of health professionals, social movements and those affected. With the failure of a catastrophe to arise, signs of fatigue in the exceptionalist alliance and increasing possibilities of medical treatment, exceptionalism in Europe is drawing to a close. Four phases are distinguished between in this process, given nationally different patterns of development: Approx. 1981-1985: emergence of exceptionalism. The reasons underlying exceptionalism are investigated. Approx. 1986-1991. consolidation and performance of exceptionalism. The investigation centers on the exceptionalist policy model. ...
Epidemiological studies have indicated a relationship between coronary heart disease (CHD) and periodontitis. Recently, CDKN2BAS was reported as a shared genetic risk factor of CHD and aggressive periodontitis (AgP), but the causative variant has remained unknown. To identify and validate risk variants in different European populations, we first explored 150 kb of the genetic region of CDKN2BAS including the adjacent genes CDKN2A and CDKN2B, covering 51 tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms (tagSNPs) in AgP and chronic periodontitis (CP) in individuals of Dutch origin (n=313). In a second step, we tested the significant SNP associations in an independent AgP and CP population of German origin (n=1264). For the tagSNPs rs1360590, rs3217992, and rs518394, we could validate the associations with AgP before and after adjustment for the covariates smoking, gender and diabetes, with SNP rs3217992 being the most significant (OR 1.48, 95% CI 1.19 to 1.85; p=0.0004). We further showed in vivo gene ...
More than 26,000 cases of measles and 115 outbreaks of the disease have been reported across 36 different European countries in 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported on Friday.. Furthermore, France had the largest number of reported measles cases with more than 14,000, according to statistics published in the December 2 edition of the Weekly Epidemiological Record (WER). BBC News also noted that 83% of all cases were in Western European countries, with slightly less than 1,000 confirmed measles cases in England and Wales combined.. "These occurred predominantly among older children and young adults who had not been vaccinated or whose vaccination history was unknown," the WHO report said. "The primary reason for the increased transmission and outbreaks of measles in the region is failure to vaccinate.". The British news organization also notes that measles outbreaks have resulted in nine European deaths so far this year, as well as nearly 7,300 hospitalizations. The WHO has also ...

Belfast ECMC is leading on the pan-European MErCuRIC project involving 13 partners from eight different European countries. This multicentre phase Ib/II clinical trial will assess the combination of a MEK inhibitor with a MET inhibitor to combat metastasis, improve survival and change current clinical practice for colorectal cancer patients with KRAS mutant and wild type tumours. Next generation sequencing and xenopatients will be used to identify patient subgroups that will gain maximum benefit from this novel treatment strategy. The MERCURIC trial has completed its dose escalation of the combination of cMET and MEK inhibitors. A limited dose escalation component will investigate the combination of our CMET inhibitor crizotinib with a new MEK inhibitor binimetinib. Once the recommended phase II dose and schedule are established, additional ECMCs will join us in late 2016 for the expansion phase limited to patients with biomarker-defined metastatic colorectal cancer. ...

There have been 18 confirmed deaths and over 1,500 individuals infected with a rare strain of Escherichia coli bacteria in 10 different European countries. Austria, Denmark, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K. have reported cases of the infection. The outbreak does not seem to be slowing and is causing great concern among health officials in Europe and the United States, who have stated that it is the worst in recorded history. The bacteria responsible for the deadly outbreak has been identified as a strain of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) designated O104:H4. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the strain has been "seen in humans before but never in an EHEC outbreak". This bacterium is particularly virulent and can cause hemorrhagic colitis with bloody diarrhea, which can ultimately develop into hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). HUS is characterized by hemolysis of blood cells resulting in anemia and thrombocytopenia and ...

In Belgium, since 1969, sport is a competence under the control of public authorities defined according to the linguistic regime. As in most Western European countries, sport has been compartmentalised by giving rise to three main types of practice: professional, traditional and alternative sports (Diegel, 1995). Clubs linked to sports federations constitute the local setting up of the sports organization, which is largely a majority (Zintz, 2014). Other operators from the public domain and the private sphere coexist (Cloes, 2012). In the school environment, sport can be found in three contexts: within the compulsory curriculum (physical education), integrated to extracurricular activities (activities organized during recess or free periods), ...

OBJECTIVES: To develop evidence based recommendations for the management of hand osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: The multidisciplinary guideline development group comprised 16 rheumatologists, one physiatrist, one orthopaedic surgeon, two allied health professionals, and one evidence based medicine expert, representing 15 different European countries. Each participant contributed up to 10 propositions describing key clinical points for management of hand OA. Final recommendations were agreed using a Delphi consensus approach. A systematic search of Medline, Embase, CINAHL, Science Citation Index, AMED, Cochrane Library, HTA, and NICE reports was used to identify the best available research evidence to support each proposition. Where possible, the effect size and number needed to treat were calculated for efficacy. Relative risk or odds ratio was estimated for safety, and incremental cost effectiveness ratio was used for cost effectiveness. The strength of recommendation was provided according to research
Hot and dry weather conditions are associated with increased aflatoxin and fumonisin production by the fungi from Aspergillus and Fusarium species. Weather is therefore the most important factor in determining whether aflatoxin and fumonisin contamination will be a problem or not.". Uncertain mycotoxin situation in 2015 led Nutriad to conduct several mycotoxin surveys in different European countries (UK and Ireland, Poland, Spain). Each survey was conducted on 60-70 samples of wheat or maize.. The Spanish Nutriad Mycotoxin Survey, executed in Q4 2015, covers 60 locally produced maize samples from across Spain. More than 400 analyses were conducted to test for the occurrence of the seven mycotoxins most frequently found in agricultural commodities that are intended for animal feed production.. The survey provided an insight into the incidences of aflatoxin B1 (AfB1), zearalenone (ZEN), deoxynivalenol (DON), T-2 toxin, fumonisin B1 (FB1), fumonisin B2 (FB2) and ochratoxin A (OTA) across all ...
by Nicolai Netz and Fabian Kratz.. The past decades have witnessed an enormous expansion of programmes to support the international mobility of students, the most popular example being ERASMUS. Lots of money has been invested to this end. Both policy-makers and scientists have therefore become increasingly curious to know whether international student mobility (ISM) pays off for the mobile students.. Several studies from different European countries have addressed this question. They mostly came to the conclusion that graduates who spent part of their studies abroad indeed receive higher wages. It is still unclear, however, whether this wage advantage really reflects a causal effect of ISM. And if so, which precisely are the mechanisms that explain the often observed monetary returns to ISM? This is the question that we addressed in an article recently published in Studies in Higher Education. To answer our research question, we first developed a conceptual framework for analysing monetary ...

In the present work, the prognostic value of the genotype in localized GIST, along with the already known prognostic factors for DFS, was investigated in a large prospective series of patients with GIST, diagnosed in four different European countries with the longest follow-up time published to date. On multivariate analysis, relapse was predicted by MI ,10 mitoses/50 HPF, tumor size ,10 cm, primary nongastric tumor location, and independently by a specific tumor genotype. In particular, the effect of tumor size (HR, 6.75) and mitotic count (HR, 5.7) was remarkable, and also evident for tumor location (HR 1.64). Surprisingly, tumor rupture has not been shown to be an independent predictor of outcome on multivariate analysis. The reasons for the latter remain speculative, but the completeness of reporting of tumor rupture might have had a role, because this parameter was frequently not reported in the older cases and was lacking in nearly 20% of patients. In addition, the intrinsic ...

This study focused on the molecular characterization of a small cryptic, mobilizable plasmid (6038 bp) sequenced from an E. faecium 9631160-1 of poultry origin. Sequence analysis of pRI1 revealed seven open reading frames. pRI1 contained an IS 100% identical to ISEfa4. This insertion element disrupted a putative mobilization gene (mobA) which presented 99% similarity to the one described in plasmid pJS42 (NC_010291). pRI1 harbored a cluster of four coding sequences which exhibited a homology to those described in contig 658 (from nucleotide 8940 to nt 10515) of E. faecium DO. In addition, a rep almost identical to the repA from the pEFNP1 and pKQ10 plasmids from E. faecium was also identified. Presence of the pRI1 replication initiation gene (rep) was analyzed in a panel of 159 E. faecium isolates of human and animal origin from different European countries, of which 60 tested positive for the presence of pRI1-rep. Conjugation experiments verified transfer of the pRI1 together with conjugative ...

All ages and truncated (35 to 64 years) mortality rates from all neoplasms and from cancers of the lung, stomach, intestines, and breast for the six calendar quinquennia from 1960-1964 to 1985-1989 were computed from official death certification data and population estimates obtained from the World Health Organization database for total Europe (excluding former Soviet Union) and for three broad European areas: (a) member countries of the European Economic Community for the last period of the study; (b) other Western European countries; and (c) Eastern European countries. In Europe, mortality rates for all neoplasms increased for men and decreased for women. The increase in men can be largely explained by the major tobacco-related lung cancer epidemic throughout Europe. Lung cancer mortality rates rose steeply in Eastern Europe, where the truncated rates reached the highest levels ever observed, and there is no evidence of a leveling off. Stomach cancer mortality decreased in all Europe for both ...

Respondents expressed disappointment at the limited variety of providers in the market that could help them implement a PEP. However, Mercer surveyed 25 providers about their PEP plans and found that six already claim to have Pan-European products offering a package of investment, administration, communications and plan management.. Of those six, half use Belgiums Organisation for Pensions (OFP) as one of the vehicles. A further five providers expect to have a Pan-European product within the next 12 months with another eight following in the next two to three years. Over half of the providers (13) intend to offer or use more than one legal vehicle for their services. "Our research highlights a lack of awareness and understanding around provision in this market," said Mr Mack ...

Modelling the implementation of current European guidelines on arterial hypertension [13] on a general population of Norwegian adults, aged 20-89, we found that 93.4% of all individuals with blood pressure of ≥120/80 mmHg (i.e., 74% of the total, adult population) would be eligible for regular clinical attention and/or drug treatment, based on their total CVD risk profile. In terms of the primary care workforce, a larger number of GPs would be needed for the sole purpose of implementing the hypertension guidelines, than the number of doctors who currently serve all primary care needs of this population - which is affluent as well as long-lived and healthy-living, by international comparison. These findings raise important questions related to the scientific validity, clinical sustainability and social responsibility of the guidelines.. Some limitations and other methodological considerations related to our implementation model have to be taken into consideration. Compared with other European ...

Nicolai says the successful CAT 365 experience also demonstrates how the interest is high for exporting FETISH technology to the telecom and mobile sectors, for example. Additionally, he notes several projects in different European Commission initiatives within its Information Society Directorate-General (Eumedis, IST), as well as national ones, are evaluating the use of FETISH network technology to achieve their goals. "The FETISH network technology is the building block of the Digital Business Ecosystem project under the European Commissions Sixth Framework Programme for research starting 1 November 2003. IBM, INTEL, SUN, London School of Economics, T6, and several universities and research centres have committed to use FETISH network technology as the founding open source technology of the project," he says, adding that the services will be deployed in many regional catalysts in Europe (Tampere, Aragon and Midlands) in order to enable the local SMEs to take advantage of it ...
article{2140901, abstract = {Background: Job strain (i.e., high job demands combined with low job control) is a frequently used indicator of harmful work stress, but studies have often used partial versions of the complete multi-item job demands and control scales. Understanding whether the different instruments assess the same underlying concepts has crucial implications for the interpretation of findings across studies, harmonisation of multi-cohort data for pooled analyses, and design of future studies. As part of the IPD-Work (Individual-participant-data meta-analysis in working populations) consortium, we compared different versions of the demands and control scales available in 17 European cohort studies. Methods: Six of the 17 studies had information on the complete scales and 11 on partial scales. Here, we analyse individual level data from 70 751 participants of the studies which had complete scales (5 demand items, 6 job control items). Results: We found high Pearson correlation ...

Effort-reward imbalance (ERI) is an established conceptualisation of work stress. Although a validated effort-reward questionnaire is available for public use, many epidemiological studies adopt shortened scales and proxy measures. To examine the agreement between different abbreviated measures and the original instrument, we compared different versions of the effort-reward scales available in 15 European cohort studies participating in the IPD-Work (Individual-participant-data meta-analysis in working populations) consortium. Five of the 15 studies provide information on the original (complete) scales measuring effort and reward, whereas the 10 remaining studies used partial scales. To compare different versions of the ERI scales, we analyse individual-level data from 31,790 participants from the five studies with complete scales. Pearsons correlation between partial and complete scales was very high in case of effort (where 2 out of 3 items were used) and very high or high in case of

Objective: To build up sufficient knowledge of a healthy diet. Here, we report on the assessment of nutritional knowledge using a uniform method in a large sample of adolescents across Europe.. Design: A cross-sectional study.. Setting: The European multicentre HELENA (Healthy Lifestyle in Europe by Nutrition in Adolescence) study conducted in 2006-2007 in ten cities in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece (one inland and one island city), Hungary, Italy, Spain and Sweden.. Subjects: A total of 3546 adolescents (aged 12,5-17,5 years) completed a validated nutritional knowledge test (NKT). Socio-economic variables and anthropometric data were considered as potential confounders.. Results: NKT scores increased with age and girls had higher scores compared with boys (62% v.59 %;P,0,0001). Scores were approximately 10% lower in immigrant adolescents or in adolescents with immigrant mothers. Misconceptions with respect to the sugar content in food or in beverages were found. Overall, there ...

article{7030734, abstract = {Background and Objective: Adequate concentrations of leptin, cortisol, and insulin are important for a suitable metabolism and development during adolescence. These hormones jointly with glucose play a major role in fat metabolism and development of childhood obesity. Our main objective was to quantify biomarkers as leptin, cortisol, insulin and glucose status in European adolescents to contribute to establish reference ranges. Methods: A representative sample of 927 adolescents (45\% males, 14.9 +/- 1.2 years for the overall population) from ten European cities of the HELENA study was used to obtain fasting blood samples for these biomarkers. The percentile distributions were computed by sex and age and percentiles were associated with BMI classification. Results: Serum leptin concentration in adolescents varied significantly according to BMI, sex and age (all p{\textlangle}0.001). Cortisol presented a tendency to increase with age, both for females and males, while ...
INTRODUCTION: Data on the survival of all incident cases collected by population-based cancer registries make it possible to evaluate the overall performance of diagnostic and therapeutic actions on cancer in those populations. EUROCARE-3 is the third round of the EUROCARE project, the largest cancer registry population based collaborative study on survival in European cancer patients. The EUROCARE-3 study analysed the survival of cancer patients diagnosed from 1990 to 1994 and followed-up to 1999. Sixty-seven cancer registries of 22 European countries characterised by differing health systems participated in the study. This paper includes essays providing brief overviews of the state and evolution of the health systems of the considered countries and comments on the relation between cancer survival in Europe and some European macro-economic and health system indicators, in the 1990s. OVERVIEW OF THE EUROPEAN HEALTH SYSTEMS: The European health systems underwent a great deal of reorganisation in ...
As obvious as the idea was to gather every group responsible for the functioning and further development of the health care industry shortly after a significant enlargement of the European Union and in a phase in which the consolidation of the European Union (EU) was really taking off, the general scepticism was just as enormous", stated EHFG President Dr. Günther Leiner, recalling the forums beginnings. "It was simply doubted that instead of the usual encounters in the scope of tough negotiations the divergent groups would also be in a position to attempt the open exchange of ideas that is indispensable for such an event.". In the ten years of its existence the EHFG has been regularly granted the function of a platform for new concepts and ideas in European health care policy. In the first place, it should be mentioned that from the very start the EHFG subscribed to the thought that in the interest of citizens, patients (and taxpayers) health care policy must shift from a national to a ...

During the Middle Ages under the influence of the Catholic Church, many countries in western Europe moved the start of the year to one of several important Christian festivals - December 25 (the Nativity of Jesus), March 1, March 25 (the Annunciation), or even Easter. Eastern European countries (most of them with populations showing allegiance to the Orthodox Church) began their numbered year on September 1 from about 988.[citation needed]. In England, January 1 was celebrated as the New Year festival, but from the 12th century to 1752 the year in England began on March 25 (Lady Day). So, for example, the Parliamentary record notes the execution of Charles I as occurring on January 30, 1648, (as the year did not end until March 24), although modern histories adjust the start of the year to January 1 and record the execution as occurring in 1649.. Most western European countries changed the start of the year to January 1 before they adopted the Gregorian calendar. For example, Scotland changed ...
An overview is given of serum and urine prostate cancer markers that are currently under investigation and subsequently the P-Mark project is introduced. There are many markers showing promise to overcome the limitations of prostate specific antigen (PSA). Eventually, these markers should be able to increase the specificity in diagnosis, differentiate between harmless and aggressive disease and identify progression towards androgen independence at an early stage. In the P-Mark project, several recently developed, promising markers will be evaluated using clinically well-defined biorepositories. Following successful evaluation, these markers will be validated on a sample set derived from two large, European, prostate cancer studies and used for the identification of special risk groups in the general population. In addition, novel markers will be identified in the same biorepositories by different mass spectrometry techniques.

The creation of MELODI is the result of this globally increasing preoccupation: of society and the general public on the one hand, and of the scientific community and international research organisations on the other. Considering the complexity of the biological mechanisms in question, it is fundamental to create a long-term alliance which combines the available scientific resources at the European, and even global level, with a multi-disciplinary approach. Five European Member States (Finland with STUK, France with IRSN and CEA, Germany with BfS, Italy with ISS and the United Kingdom with the Health Protection Agency), in association with the European Commission, created a think tank in 2008, the HLEG (High level expert group on low dose risk research), which then proceeded to identify the priority research themes (see below SRA) and recommended that this research be governed by a structure associating the different European stakeholders in this field: MELODI. The transnational European ...
The idea of having a pan-European funding mechanism for basic research has been discussed and supported for a long time. However, its realisation was held back at the political level because the founding treaties of the European Union was interpreted as allowing union funding only to strengthen the scientific and technological base of European industry - that is, only funding for applied research rather than basic research. In conjunction with the Lisbon declaration in 2000, leaders of the EU, in particular the European Commissioner for Research at the time, Philippe Busquin, realised that the European Treaty had to be reinterpreted; a transformation of European economy from traditional manufacturing to a knowledge-based economy has to involve the enhanced support at the European level for science of all kinds, including both fundamental and applied research. In 2003, a report from the ERC Expert Group (ERCEG), chaired by Professor Federico Mayor, described how the ERC could take shape. In 2004, ...
Background: Androgens acting via the androgen receptor (AR) stimulate production of PSA, which is a clinical marker of prostate cancer. Because genetic variants in the AR may have a significant impact on the risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer, the aim was to investigate whether AR variants were associated with the risk of having PSA above clinically used cutoff thresholds of 3 or 4 ng/mL in men without prostate cancer.. Methods: Men without prostate cancer history (n = 1,744) were selected from the European Male Ageing Study cohort of 40 to 79-year-old men from eight different European centers. Using linear and logistic regression models, with age and center as covariates, we investigated whether AR variants (CAG repeat-length and/or SNP genotype) were associated with having serum PSA concentrations above 3 or 4 ng/mL, which often are set as cutoff concentrations for further investigation of prostate cancer.. Results: Carriers of the SNP rs1204038 A-allele (16% of the men) were more ...
Order no. 13400157. The publication of the European health report every three years is an opportunity to focus on progress towards genuine health and well-being for all. Whether the reader is a policy-maker, a politician, a public health specialist or journalist, the report gives a vital snapshot of health in the WHO European Region. It shows trends and progress towards the goals of Health 2020, the European health policy, and reveals some gaps in progress, inequalities and areas of concern and uncertainty, where action must be taken.. The 2015 report shows that improvements in health continue throughout the European Region, and some of the inequalities in health between countries, notably in life expectancy and infant mortality, have decreased in recent years. In real terms, however, these differences still amount to 11 years of life and 20 healthy babies per 1000 live births between the best- and worst-performing countries. Absolute differences between countries remain unacceptably large, ...

Two small studies reported suboptimal therapy adherence in Parkinsons disease. We conducted a larger multicenter European study to assess medicine-taking behavior. Parkinsons disease patients taking dopaminergic therapy were enrolled in 8 centers in 5 countries, and disease severity and demographics recorded. Antiparkinson drug adherence was measured for 4 weeks using electronic monitoring bottles which record the date and time of cap opening (Aardex®, Switzerland). One hundred twelve patients, mean age 65 years (standard deviation (SD) 10), with Parkinsons disease for 7.7 (SD 8.2) years completed the study. Total median adherence (doses taken/doses prescribed) was 97.7% (interquartile range [IQ] 90.6-100), days adherence (correct dose days) was 86.2% (IQ 61.1-96.2) and timing adherence (doses taken at correct time intervals) was 24.4% (IQ 5.3-56.5). Fourteen patients (12.5%) took less than 80% of prescribed doses, which was defined as suboptimal adherence. Patients with satisfactory ...
BACKGROUND: Neutralizing antibodies (NAb) affect efficacy of interferon-beta (IFN-b) treatment in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. NAbs evolve in up to 44% of treated patients, usually between 6-18 months on therapy. OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether early binding antibody (BAb) titers or different IFN-b biomarkers predict NAb evolution. METHODS: We included patients with MS or clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) receiving de novo IFN-b treatment in this prospective European multicenter study. Blood samples were collected at baseline, before and after the first IFN-b administration, and again after 3, 12 and 24 months on that therapy; for determination of NAbs, BAbs, gene expression of MxA and protein concentrations of MMP-9, TIMP-1, sTRAIL, CXCL-10 and CCL-2. RESULTS: We found that 22 of 164 (13.4%) patients developed NAbs during a median time of 23.8 months on IFN-b treatment. Of these patients, 78.9% were BAb-positive after 3 months. BAb titers ≥ 1:2400 predicted NAb evolution with a ...
immune Uncategorized Angptl2, BI 2536 Current European policies define targets for future direct emissions of new car sales that foster a fast transition to electric drivetrain technologies. use. The results suggest that fostering vehicle weight reduction could produce greater cumulative emissions savings by 2050 than those obtained by incentivising a fast transition to electric drivetrains, unless there is an extreme decarbonization of the electricity grid. Savings promoted by weight reduction are immediate and do not depend on the pace of decarbonization of the electricity grid. Weight reduction may produce the greatest savings when mild steel in the car body is replaced with high-strength steel.

The present European survey seeks to assess quality of life and satisfaction with treatment in people with T2DM and to appreciate disease and treatment variables including hypoglycaemia and level of glycaemic control. It will also provide relevant information on other important aspects such as the level of correlation of objective measures such as HbA1c with health status, QoL and satisfaction with current treatment. Overall 5000 randomly selected patients will be invited to participate from a representative sample of clinical practices during a pre-specified period. The study will entail a single patient visit. Patients who agree to the study and give their informed consent will complete questionnaires which, combined with retrospective notes review & an HbA1c test, will allow patient, disease and treatment variables to be collected. An HbA1c test is a finger prick test to measure glycosylated haemoglobin in the blood indicating the level of blood glucose over the last 8-12 weeks ...
HCPs have generally positive attitudes towards vaccination. In the EVM study, 84% of the 800 healthcare professionals interviewed affirmed very positive perceptions of vaccines and the value of vaccination, and another 14% had somewhat positive perceptions [19, 20]. However, their level of information on vaccination issues was not always optimum. Surprisingly, education on vaccines and vaccination is poor or nonexistent in the medical curricula in most western European countries. The recent renewal process of the medical curricula at many European universities provides an opportunity to incorporate more extensive training on vaccinology for future generations of physicians. Similar efforts should be made for pharmacy and nursing curricula. A survey to assess the current state of vaccine-related teaching in the formal education of HCPs is recommended as a first step in improving the system.. HCPs often lack precise information on specific issues. In an American study [43], over 90% of 268 ...
Published November 2013. ISBN: 978-1-909453-13-5. Major efforts have resulted in significant improvement in air quality in Europe in the past few decades. However, air quality impairment is still an important cause of loss of life expectancy, as well as increased morbidity, and atmospheric particulate matter (PM) and tropospheric ozone (O3) remain the most health-relevant air pollutants. In eleven chapters authored by expert air quality scientists and specialists from academia and city administrations, this book describes the problem of urban PM air pollution and combines the experiences of different European cities concerning the selection, implementation and evaluation of the effectiveness of specific measures to improve air quality.. ...

At the moment the PALANTE project is in progress. The administration of the baseline survey has been completed and the collected data are under analysis. A second survey is currently in the field to gather data on patients experience after six months of service use. While it is not yet known whether the eHealth functionalities positively affect patient activation, the PALANTE Consortium argues that the solutions implemented for its assessment might per se offer an original, valuable and viable way to overcome the limitations of the traditional generation of evidence in EC projects and, more generally to publicly-funded inter-national projects. The EC needs to ground its policy-making on significant―in terms of size and robustness―sources of evidence that come from both local and pan-European projects. Furthermore, European Regions look to such research projects for reliable and pertinent evidence when making development decisions for their healthcare systems. To support this, we have ...
Environmental factors may play a role in the genesis of pulmonary hypertension, especially in endothelial dysfunction. One widespread environmental factor associated with systemic endothelial dysfunction is cigarette smoke. It may well be that cigarette smoking is not only a risk factor for systemic but also for pulmonary vascular diseases and herewith may interact with other risk factors such as a genetic background and associated conditions. The existing studies which deal with this subject are only small single center case control studies providing less data. Therefore a large European multicenter study is necessary.. The investigators hypothesis are:. ...

In 1995, a large meta-analysis including a total of 33,148 patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) found an increased mortality rate in patients with diabetes (summary OR 1.3 [95% Cl 1.1-1.5]), which was comparable to the risk of male sex in this analysis (summary OR 1.3 [95% CI 1.2-1.4]) (35). However, this analysis did not adjust for confounding within the individual trials, and misclassification of hyperglycemic patients may have biased the results. Based on the results of a large prospective study, blood glucose level, but not diabetes, was later incorporated into the Pneumonia Severity Index, a prognostic score for 30-day mortality.. A retrospective matched case-control study using a large database of administrative data from Canada (n = 513,749 in each group) reported a higher risk for infection-related mortality in diabetic patients (RR 1.9 [95% CI 1.8-2.1]) (31). Higher mortality rates in diabetic patients were also reported in several different European studies. Thomsen et al. ...
Our findings, which focused only on prescription NSAIDs, might apply to NSAIDs obtained over the counter as well. Although over-the-counter NSAIDs are probably typically used at lower doses, by younger people, and for shorter durations than prescribed NSAIDs, they are sometimes available at the same doses than those prescribed36 and may be inappropriately overused.37 Therefore, our findings could have large scale consequences in public health and further research needs to assess the safety of over-the-counter NSAIDs under the conditions they are typically used.. The present study, conducted as part of the EU funded SOS Project, is based on data from large and unselected populations and obtained by combining different healthcare databases together. The same approach was considered in several other EU funded projects addressing various issues on drug safety, such as the arrhythmogenic risk of drugs (ARITMO project), safety of vaccines (VAESCO project), and detection of adverse drug reactions (EU ...

The dairy sheep industry in Western European countries is mainly based on the production of high quality PDO cheeses. Thus dairy sheep selection has been oriented towards milk yield and milk composition (protein and fat content) to maintain competitiveness of this production. Due to the evolution of the EU agricultural policy and consumers demand, more attention has been now given to traits related to the reduction of production costs (milkability, functional traits, longevity), health (resistance to mastitis or parasitic diseases) and safety food (milk content in fatty acids related to human health). In most situations, only a part of these new traits is extensively recorded in the nucleus flocks of the purebred breeding schemes (Barillet, 1997; Rupp et al., 2002 ; Sanna et al., 2002). Therefore research combining classical quantitative approach and QTL detection is needed, either on-farm by implementing experimental recording schemes, or in experimental flock especially for traits difficult ...

Palo Alto, California and Copenhagen, Denmark, September 13th, 2011 - Ascendis Pharma, a privately held specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced positive results of a Phase 2 clinical study of ACP-001 in growth hormone deficient adults. The Phase 2 clinical study met all primary and secondary endpoints, the primary efficacy endpoint being the change in IGF-I levels from baseline compared to daily growth hormone. Conducted in a number of Western European countries, the Phase 2 trial was designed to investigate safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in 37 adult patients with growth hormone deficiency. The study was a randomized, four-week, multiple-dose study comparing three dose levels of once-weekly ACP-001 to daily growth hormone.. ACP-001 administered once-weekly was as effective in stimulating IGF-I as seven daily injections of the equivalent weekly dose of growth hormone. ACP-001 stimulated a doseproportional increase in IGF-I levels across the three dose ...

I dont have kids, but when I was a baby the health care system I grew up under (some western European country) did not prescribe many of the vaccines in the early 80s that are now on the regular vaccine schedule. The only vaccines I got as a baby were BCG, Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (all separate) and some vaccine for a particular strain of meningitis transmitted by ticks. No MMR, no varicella, no Hep, and I got mumps, measles and the chicken pox (yes, the diseases). Mumps and the chicken pox werent so horrible, but measles was absolutely awful and terrifying. I was out of school for 6 weeks, and spent most of that time hallucinating from high fever and trying to keep anything from touching my skin, since I didnt really have red dots, but my entire body was swollen, puffy and bright red, even between my toes and fingers ...

The publication of randomised trials demonstrating the ability of regular faecal occult blood testing (FOBT) to reduce the risk of death from colorectal cancer39 40 was the starting point of FOBT based screening activities in several European countries (such as France and the UK). Similarly, sigmoidoscopy trials40 and strong and longstanding observational data41 42 supporting the effectiveness of colonoscopy screening helped establish endoscopy as the primary screening procedure for colorectal cancer in the USA as well as in many European countries (for example, Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Poland).43 44 45 However, it was only until the 2000s that European governments and health authorities set out to engage in more structured screening strategies for colorectal cancer-either through the publication of guideline recommendations or organisation of screening programmes. Currently, all European countries have a system of opportunistic screening (that is, individual initiative or ...

Im afraid you are mixing up u and v, I think. As Imber Ranae explained earlier in the thread, V (as in inscriptions) with the cursive form u should be regarded as the traditional letter. U and v are the later inventions. No one is arguing for abolishing u, so it is pointless to defend it. I am comparing j with v, both consonants.) But, it is probably true that the pronunciation of the letter v is more consistent in different European languages, than that of j. However, it is consistently different from /w/, the classical pronunciation. So, for the individual learner (who, as you mention, look at it from the perspective of their native tongue), I maintain that they are, for the most part, analogous. How is it any different for an English pupil to learn to pronounce v in a foreign way (i.e. /w/), than it is to learn to pronounce j in a foreign way (i. e. as y in yes - which conveniently is denoted /j/ in the International Phonetic Alphabet ...

The EU is of growing importance for national health policy. Especially the EU´s impact on national organizational competencies for health care systems has been increased by recent European Court of Justice decisions. The aim of the project is to analyze the impact of EU policy on national health care systems and in particular on national actors in the pharmaceutical sector. This task requires the identification of centers of decision in the policy formulation process and the analysis of the formulation of positions by the member states and non state actors. Of particular concern is the institutionalization of permanent negotiation systems, in which the involved actors negotiate on the future role of the EU level for health care systems. Specifically, the project aimed at (a)an analytical narrative of the initiation and establishment of the European level negotiation system on the completion of the Single Market for Pharmaceuticals as an example of an international negotiation system in statu ...
It has become abundantly clear during the first few months of the Obama Administration that he desires to emulate Europe in socialization of our democracy. But it wont work. The reason that several European countries have had limited success in expanding social programs is that America has provided them with a huge subsidy in the form of our military dominance. Nations not encumbered by the cost of completely defending their own territory have a few extra bucks in the treasury to spend on feel-good programs. However, should the U.S. choose a similar political path under Obama, those same countries will have to pick up the slack in defending themselves, as the Democrats here use cuts in the military budget to help fund their own social programs. The result? Either those nations currently depending on American military might will have to go on as in the past and increase their exposure to foreign aggressors, or the social programs of which they are so proud will begin to founder. They could, ...

Despite limitations of the Food and Drug Administration label, novel drugs can usually be used at any stage of the disease in the United States where the availability of AHSCT is also largely unrestricted. There are parts of the world, including several European countries, where certain treatment options are restricted to specific phases of the disease or are not available at all. When drug availability is restricted by disease phase, management is easier. Thus, MPT and MPB are commonly used as induction therapy in Europe, but not lenalidomide combinations. Where there is no access to these drugs at all, the situation is much more difficult. MP or dexamethasone are reasonable choices for induction and salvage therapy under such circumstances. Periodic cyclophosphamide is also a simple, inexpensive, and widely available choice. The simple fact is that AHSCT, and novel agents improve survival substantially and must be considered integral parts of therapy. Issues regarding their limited ...
