Genetic alteration of laboratory rodents may affect their welfare. In compliance with EU Directive 2010/63, potentially harmful phenotypes must be characterised and their effects reduced to what is strictly necessary for the experiment.. These guidelines have been published in Laboratory Animals. In addition to background information on severity classification, they include examples of the classification of the symptoms in a range of disorders: lethal factors, behavioural disorders, alterations of the skin and coat, diseases of the sensory organs, neurological diseases, diseases of the immune system, cardiovascular and haematological diseases, diseases of the respiratory tract, metabolic diseases, reproductive diseases, cancer, renal diseases and alterations of the locomotor system ...

Objective To develop a disease activity index for patients with primary Sjögrens syndrome (SS): the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Sjögrens syndrome disease activity index (ESSDAI).. Methods Thirty-nine SS experts participated in an international collaboration, promoted by EULAR, to develop the ESSDAI. Experts identified 12 organ-specific domains contributing to disease activity. For each domain, features of disease activity were classified in three or four levels according to their severity. Data abstracted from 96 patients with systemic complications of primary SS were used to generate 702 realistic vignettes for which all possible systemic complications were represented. Using the 0-10 physician global assessment (PhGA) scale, each expert scored the disease activity of five patient profiles and 20 realistic vignettes. Multiple regression modelling, with PhGA used as the dependent variable, was used to estimate the weight of each domain.. Results All 12 domains were ...

Behavioral response studies (BRSs) aim to enhance our understanding of the behavior changes made by animals in response to specific exposure levels of different stimuli, often presented in an increasing dosage. Here, we focus on BRSs that aim to understand behavioral responses of free-ranging whales and dolphins to manmade acoustic signals (although the methods are applicable more generally). One desired outcome of these studies is dose-response functions relevant to different species, signals and contexts. We adapted and applied recurrent event survival analysis (Cox proportional hazard models) to data from the 3S BRS project, where multiple behavioral responses of different severities had been observed per experimental exposure and per individual based upon expert scoring. We included species, signal type, exposure number and behavioral state prior to exposure as potential covariates. The best model included all main effect terms, with the exception of exposure number, as well as two ...
It can take up to a fortnight for symptoms to even start appearing when you have Hepatitis A. Different severities of the virus show different symptoms. In older and those with pre-existing liver diseases there will be higher severity than that of younger children and adults. The typical symptoms include fever, muscular pains, vomiting/nausea, diarrhoea, weight loss, abdominal pain and the yellow discolouration of the skin and eyes.. ...

Using international expert collaboration, we have developed an MLD MR severity scoring system, similar but not identical to the scoring system used in X-ALD. It is designed to be applicable to the standard MR imaging examination and reproducible by any neuroradiologist or other individual familiar with neuroanatomy and MR imaging of the pediatric brain. It should be more useful than a descriptive summary of abnormal brain involvement in these patients. It was developed to address the need for quantitative biomarkers of disease severity that can be used to assess the efficacy of novel therapeutics.. On the basis of our imaging results, we found it useful to categorize positive brain MR scores into 3 groups: mild disease (score, 1-6), moderate disease (score, 7-15), and severe disease (score, 16-34). On initial scans, 8 patients had mild disease (range, 1.92-10.25 years; mean, 3.73 years), 5 patients had moderate disease (range, 4.17-9.4 years; mean, 6.27 years), and 14 patients had severe disease ...

This ointment has a fairly good reputation among consumers. It can be found in numerous discussion forums. However, it has a disadvantage that is worth knowing about. Despite the high effectiveness, quite a lot of people complain about the long duration of this treatment. A complete cure is possible even after a few months of use. If we do not care about express results, it will not be a problem to use it for several months. It is enough to be patient and follow the recommendations. Do not overdose the product, which will lead to greater skin irritation and prolonged treatment. The majority of patients express their opinions on this subject in a rather positive way, praising it:. It works very well, the first ones were noticeable in different ways already after two months. Redheads have become faded and with time they begin to disappear, I will wait until a full cure.. Acne, like other diseases, can have different severity of symptoms. It is not always necessary to treat it immediately with such ...

A peripheral arterial study is used to document the presence of disease, determine its functional severity, localize the site of involvement, define the lesion as a stenosis or occlusion, measure its length and provide baseline information for future comparisons. When neuro - musculoskeletal symptoms are present the study helps to determine how much arterial insufficiency contributes to the patients symptoms. Principal clinical indications for peripheral arterial studies include: ...
Cigarette smoking is associated with more severe multiple sclerosis disease course with lower lifetime cigarette smoking load and smoking cessation having no significant effect on disease severity.
The figures for survival corrected for initial disease severity are of prime importance. They indicate quite clearly that outcome was equally good for all babies ⩽32 weeks gestation, irrespective of the type of unit that provided their neonatal care. Taking the study population as a whole, there is evidence that the service is working in an integrated manner. The larger units, appropriately, attract a group of infants who are sicker than those whose care is entirely in the smaller units. The babies transferred for neonatal care tend to be sicker than those that normally receive treatment in the small units.. Focusing on babies: ⩽28 weeks gestation reveals a slightly different pattern. Here CRIB scores indicate that those infants not involved in transfer are similar, in terms of disease severity, in both types of unit and outcomes are equally good. Those babies that are transferred do not have a higher predicted mortality. This suggests that, among these infants, selection for transfer relies ...

Symptom Intensity assessment values: 0 None, 1 A little, 2 A lot, 3 Extreme.. This data demonstrates that while negligible before use, a significant number of PFS patients develop LUTS after 5ari exposure, with a moderate severity on average. These symptoms are atypical for men in their mid thirties. We assert that LUTS are induced by 5ari exposure in the young men who develop PFS with these symptoms. LUTS constitute an important part of the heterogeneously distributed symptom profile of PFS. It is also unfortunate that duration of finasteride use was not correlated to severity of clinical findings in this publication. It is important that clinical studies ascertain this, as many of the most severely affected patients took a low dose of finasteride for an extremely short time. Investigations in the past have used an arbitrary minimum use period in considering PFS patients, and this is not coherent with the clinical reality of the disease. PFS frequently progresses degeneratively in the absence ...

Data from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 449 patients of 3 doses of belimumab (1, 4, 10 mg/kg) or placebo plus standard of care therapy (SOC) over a 56-week period were analyzed. The Safety of Estrogens in Lupus Erythematosus: National Assessment (SELENA) version of the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI) and British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) SLE disease activity instruments, the Short Form 36 health survey, and biomarker analyses were used to create a novel SRI. Response to treatment in a subset of 321 serologically active SLE patients (antinuclear antibodies ≥1:80 and/or anti-double-stranded DNA antibodies ≥30 IU/ml) at baseline was retrospectively evaluated using the SRI. ...
An SRI response is defined as a reduction from baseline in the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI 2K) score of at least 4 points, no worsening in Physicians Global Assessment (PhGA) (with worsening defined as an increase in PhGA of more than 0.30 point from baseline), no British Isles Lupus Assessment Group A (BILAG A) organ domain score, and no more than 1 new BILAG B organ domain score from baseline ...
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disorder characterized by broad clinical manifestations including cardiovascular and renal complications with periodic disease flares and significant morbidity and mortality. One of the main contributing factors to the pathology of SLE is the accumulation and impaired clearance of immune complexes of which the principle components are host auto-antigens and antibodies. The contribution of host lipids to the formation of these autoimmune complexes remains poorly defined. The aim of the present study was to identify and analyze candidate lipid autoantigens and their corresponding anti-lipid antibody responses in a well-defined SLE patient cohort using a combination of immunological and biophysical techniques. Disease monitoring in the SLE cohort was undertaken with serial British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) scoring. Correlations between specific lipid/anti-lipid responses were investigated as disease activity developed from active flares
The association between etanercept serum concentration and psoriasis disease severity is poorly investigated and currently etanercept serum concentration monitoring aiming to optimize psoriasis treatment lacks evidence. In this prospective study, we investigated the relation between etanercept exposure and disease severity via measuring etanercept concentrations at five consecutive time points in 56 psoriasis patients. Disease severity assessments included the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI), Body Surface Area (BSA) and Physician Global Assessment (PGA), and etanercept and anti-etanercept antibody concentrations were determined every three months for a period of one year. The present study demonstrated that the association between etanercept concentration and psoriasis severity is age-dependent: when patients were stratified into three groups, patients in the youngest age group (-50 years) showed a lower PASI at a higher etanercept concentration (β = -0.26), whereas patients in the ...
Abstract Background COVID-19 has a broad clinical spectrum We investigated the role of serum markers measured on admission on severity as assessed at discharge and investigated those which relate to the effect of BMI on severity Methods Clinical and laboratory data from 610 COVID-19 cases hospitalized in the province of Zheijang, China were investigated as risk factors for severe COVID-19 (assessed by respiratory distress) compared to mild or common forms using logistic regression methods Biochemical markers were correlated with severity using spearman correlations, and a ROC analysis was used to determine the individual contribution of each of the biochemical markers on severity We carried out formal mediation analyses to investigate the extent of the effect of body mass index (BMI) on COVID-19 severity mediated by hypertension, glycemia, Lactose Dehydrogenase (LDH) at the time of hospitalization and C-Reactive Protein levels (CRP), in units of standard deviations Results The individual markers
To explore the inadequacies of health service and its impact on clinical outcomes of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in China. A total of 210 SLE patients were randomly recruited between January 2017 and January 2018. Each patient received self-report questionnaires to assess medication adherence [Compliance Questionnaire for Rheumatology (CQR)], beliefs about medicines [Beliefs about Medicines Questionnaire (BMQ)] and satisfaction about medicine information [the Satisfaction with Information about Medicines Scale (SIMS)]. Associations between SLE disease activity index (SLEDAI-2 K) and observed factors were analyzed by multiple logistic regression. Based on CQR, only 28.10% patients were adherent. The score of BMQ was 2.85 ± 5.42, and merely 32.38% patients were satisfied with the information about their prescribed medicines. Disease activity was associated with SIMS, EuroQol five-dimensions [EQ5D], Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC), depression, use of NSAID
OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of the patients sex on the manifestations and outcome of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).. METHODS: We studied SLE patients who were ages 16 years or older and had a disease duration of , or =5 years at the time of enrollment in the LUpus in MInorities, NAture versus nurture cohort, a multiethnic cohort consisting of Hispanic, African American, and Caucasian patients. Socioeconomic/demographic, clinical, and serologic features, as well as disease activity (by the Systemic Lupus Activity Measure, Revised) and damage accrual (by the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology Damage Index) were compared between male and female patient groups. Multivariable analyses using male sex and damage accrual as dependent variables were then performed.. RESULTS: Sixty-three male SLE patients (10.2%) from all ethnic groups were included. The mean ages of the male and female patients were comparable. Factors that were either more ...
Environmental severity is rarely uniform and can vary widely across different locations and regions. There are many factors that contribute to the severity of a given environment, including climatological, geographical, biological, and human. These factors can vary within a given location and can change year-to-year based upon usage, natural weather patterns, and economic development. The specific environmental factors considered by the environmental severity characterization methods evaluated by this study, either directly or indirectly, can include temperature, humidity/atmospheric moisture, precipitation, salinity, topography, UV, winds, chloride deposition, sulfur dioxide deposition and other pollutants. Recognizing the effects these factors have on the corrosion susceptibility of facilities and prioritizing the mitigation of these effects can significantly impact not only life cycle cost but readiness and safety as well. Characterization of environmental severity for DoD locations and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The relevance of heart failure severity for treatment with evidence-based pharmacotherapy in general practice. AU - Pont, Lisa G.. AU - Van Gilst, Wiek H.. AU - Lok, Dirk J A. AU - Kragten, Hans J A. AU - Haaijer-Ruskamp, Flora M.. PY - 2003/3. Y1 - 2003/3. N2 - Aims: Internationally, research indicates that pharmacotherapy for chronic heart failure (CHF) is sub-optimal. Traditionally, assessment of drug use in heart failure has focused on the use of individual agents irrespective of CHF severity. This study investigates drug use for CHF patients in general practice with respect to the available evidence, incorporating both disease severity and the use of combination drug regimes. Methods and results: A cross-sectional survey of 769 Dutch CHF patients was performed as part of IMPROVEMENT of HF study. For each New York Heart Association severity classification the minimum treatment appropriate for the heart failure severity according to the scientific evidence available at the ...

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson presented this week results of two analyses from a Phase 2 study of Stelara®*(ustekinumab) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The studies highlight not only the sustained clinical benefit of ustekinumab - an anti-interleukin (IL) IL-12/23 p40 neutralising monoclonal antibody - on SLE disease activity at one-year, but also show a reduction in the rate of severe flares.. They also provide new insights into the possible pathway through which ustekinumab is acting in SLE patients who respond to IL-12/23 p40 blockade.1,2. The Phase 2 study, presented by lead study investigator Ronald van Vollenhoven MD PhD and colleagues, is a global randomized, placebo-controlled trial in 102 adults with seropositive SLE by Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC) criteria and active disease despite ongoing standard of care therapy (steroid, antimalarial and/or immunosuppressive therapies).1Patients were randomized (3:2) to receive ...

The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR)/American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 2019 Classification Criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have been validated with high sensitivity and specificity. We evaluated the performance of the new criteria with regard to disease duration, sex and race/ethnicity, and compared its performance against the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC) 2012 and ACR 1982/1997 criteria.Twenty-one SLE centres from 16 countries submitted SLE cases and mimicking controls to form the validation cohort. The sensitivity and specificity of the EULAR/ACR 2019, SLICC 2012 and ACR 1982/1997 criteria were evaluated.The cohort consisted of female (n=1098), male (n=172), Asian (n=118), black (n=68), Hispanic (n=124) and white (n=941) patients; with an SLE duration of 1 to ,3 years (n=196) and ≥5 years (n=879). Among patients with 1 to ,3 years disease duration, the EULAR/ACR criteria had better sensitivity than the ACR criteria (97% vs 81%). The ...
The primary end point of this reanalysis of the URICO-ICTUS data showed that compared with placebo UA therapy doubled the rate of excellent outcome after acute ischemic stroke in women but not in men. Importantly, we identified a significant interaction between treatment (UA or placebo) and sex on the rate of excellent outcome and confirmed that this finding was also significant in multivariate models that accounted for the differences observed between women and men at study onset in demographics, risk factors, initial severity of stroke, and creatinine levels.. In the study, we did not find different rates of vessel recanalization after thrombolysis between women and men as previously suggested in some25-27 but not all cohorts.28,29 Furthermore, the effect of UA therapy on functional outcome was assessed in models adjusted for stroke subtype, age, initial severity of stroke, and for the variable effects of risk factors. Therefore, it is sensible to think that the clinical response to UA therapy ...
Ischemic stroke is a global health problem.The major subtype of ischemic stroke is large artery atherothrombosis (LAA). Depending on the lesion location, there were two different type of LAA, including intracranial and extracranial stenosis. The etiological mechanisms between intracranial and extracranial stenosis are unclear. Previous studies speculated that high lipid level or insulin resistane may result in different severity between intracranial and extracranial stenosis. Therefore, the aim of this project is to explore the role of lipid metabolism, glucose homeostasis, their inducible anti-oxidant and inflammatory related genes, and their phenotypes on risk, severity and prognosis of intracranial and extracranial stenosis. A total of 1800 LAA stroke patients, including 1500 intracranial stenosis and 300 extracranial stenosis patients, diagnosed with computerized tomographic (CT) scan and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will be recruited from seven participant hospitals (NTUH, SKH, WFH , ...

Manifestation of SARS-CoV-2 infections may range from asymptomatic infections or mild symptoms to severe courses of disease with a high risk of fatal outcome (2). In this study, we show that SARS-CoV-2-specific immunological characteristics in patients with a severe course are clearly distinct from infected individuals who recovered from mild disease that could be managed in an outpatient setting. Both groups were analyzed at the same time after onset of COVID-19 symptoms. As main findings, we show that patients with severe disease had high levels of SARS-CoV-2-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cells as well as high titers of specific IgG and IgA antibodies as compared with convalescent individuals, where levels were significantly lower. However, SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells in severe cases had a restricted cytokine expression profile with fewer multifunctional cells and strongly expressed CTLA-4 as a hallmark of T cells in the contraction phase of an immune response after active encounter with the virus. ...
Genetic and clinical characterization: All samples are derived from subjects who undergo a detailed clinical evaluation. Detailed genotyping is performed as well to fully characterize all samples. The clinical evaluation includes measurement of overall disease severity score, age of symptom onset, the strength of the muscle sampled, and the severity of the underlying pathological changes. Genetic analysis includes D4Z4 repeat size analysis on chromosomes 4 and 10, haplotype analysis (4qA or 4qB backgrounds and SSLP analysis) and D4Z4 methylation analysis. The details of the methods used to collect and characterize these samples are available here ...
The new 2019 SLE European League Against Rheumatism/American College of Rheumatology (EULAR/ACR) classification criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have been recently published.1 These criteria have been developed to find a better equilibrium between specificity and sensitivity compared with the previous criteria (SLE ACR-19972 and SLE Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC)3). Even if these criteria have been built for classification, they could be useful in clinical practice in patients with a suspicion of systemic autoimmune disease (AID) to differentiate patients with SLE from patients with another systemic AID, such as primary Sjögrens syndrome (pSS), scleroderma or myositis. SLE and pSS share biological and clinical similarities. In clinical practice, it is frequently difficult to differentiate these two diseases. Moreover, SLE and Sjögrens syndrome (SS) may overlap. The aim of this study was to explore the utility of the 2019 SLE EULAR/ACR criteria ...

In the United States, current concerns exist that the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will use G codes to determine changes in policy or payment. A study recently published in the Physical Therapy Journal finds that the G-code functional limitation severity modifier lacks validity for determining functional changes. G Codes were mandated by CMS in July 2013 as part of Middle Class Tax Relief and Jobs Creation Act of 2012. Therapists (occupational or physical) choose one of four G code categories: mobility; changing and maintaining body position; carrying, moving, and handling objects; and self care. Therapists select one of out seven functional limitation severity modifier codes. These G Codes reflect the amount of impairment from zero to one hundred percent. Diane and Alan Jette completed a retrospective observational study of therapists (occupational and physical) at the Cleveland Clinic to assess the validity of G code functional severity limitation modifier codes. Patients ...
The Glaucoma Staging Program (GSP) is useful in early detection of Glaucoma.. The GSP software grades examination findings into visual field classes (normal, glaucomatous, artifactual and neuro) based solely on their appearance. In addition, risk classes (normal, suspect, pre-perimetric, early stage, moderate and severe) are also assigned to findings of different severities that are classified as normal or glaucomatous. The examination results are presented in easy to understand green, yellow and red bar charts.. The striking novelty of the GSP is its ability to detect subtle changes in the visual field associated with early stage Glaucoma. Findings in the suspect and pre-perimetric risk classes contain reductions in the visual field that cannot be readily seen by the examiner. They usually remain undetected by the standard perimetric indices.. The Glaucoma Likelihood Index (GLI) summarizes the results of the GSP classification into a single parameter, presenting a value of between 0 (normal) ...
There are limited data regarding the relationship between interstitial lung disease (ILD) and the natural course of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In this study, we investigate whether patients with ILD are more susceptible to COVID-19 than those without ILD and evaluate the impact of ILD on disease severity in patients with COVID-19.A nationwide cohort of patients with COVID-19 (n=8070) and a 1:15 age-, sex-, and residence-matched cohort (n=121 050) were constructed between January 1, 2020 and May 30, 2020 in Korea. We performed a nested case-control study to compare the proportions of patients with ILD between the COVID-19 cohort and the matched cohort. Using the COVID-19 cohort, we also evaluated the risk of severe COVID-19 in patients with ILD versus those without ILD.The proportion of patients with ILD was significantly higher in the COVID-19 cohort than in the matched cohort (0.8% versus 0.4%, p,0.001). The odds ratio [OR] of having ILD was significantly higher in the COVID-19 cohort ...

My twin daughters were born at 23 weeks and 5 days, yes 23w 5d!. They just turned 2 in May. Both my girls have different severities of Cerebral Palsy. My daughter, Joy has fluctuated in weight bewtween 14-15 pounds for just over a year now. She weighs no more than 15 lbs and no less than 14 pounds at every doctors appointment. She has been on a Pediasure Plus diet for almost 6 months and still nothing. She doesnt eat solid foods, only purees and eats 4oz every 3-4 hours. She eats purees at least 2 times a day. Everything is high calorie for her. But still no weight gain. Joy is very immobile due to the severity of CP, so she doesnt move around much, so we know that is not the cause of her lack of wieght gain ...
Objective Specific comorbidities and old age create a greater vulnerability to severe Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19). While obesity seems to aggravate the course of disease, the actual impact of the body mass index (BMI) and the cutoff which increases illness severity are still under investigation. The aim of the study was to analyze whether the BMI represented a risk factor f qor respiratory failure, admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) and death. Research Design and Methods A retrospective cohort study of 482 consecutive COVID-19 patients hospitalised between March 1 and April 20, 2020. Logistic regression analysis and Cox proportion Hazard models including demographic characteristics and comorbidities were carried out to predict the endpoints within 30 days from the onset of symptoms. Results Of 482 patients, 104 (21.6%) had a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. At logistic regression analysis, a BMI between 30 and 34.9 kg/m2 significantly increased the risk of respiratory failure (OR: 2.32; 95% CI: ...
MODEL RELEASED. Psoriasis on the back after treatment. Psoriasis on the skin of the back of a patient before treatment with UVB light. Psoriasis is caused by excessive skin production resulting in red scaly patches and inflammation. The treatment here resulted in a reduction of the PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) score by 75 percent (PASI 75). For a sequence showing the treatment, see images C014/2541 to C014/2543. - Stock Image C014/2543

Damage accrual in SLE patients is an independent predictor of mortality, but which of the 12 domains of the SLICC damage index is the most important has been unknown. The investigators studied 635 SLE patients aged 16 years or older. Of these, 570 (89%) were women who had a mean age of 36.5 years. All subjects had disease duration of five years or less at enrollment. Disease activity was assessed by the investigators using the Systemic Lupus Activity Measure-Revised (SLAM-R) at diagnosis and damage at the last visit ...
The SAE Severity Index is supposed to be an approximation to tolerance limit data, but there are incongruities in its derivation which renders the formula unsupportable. The same logic on which the Severity Index appears to be based can be used to support a wide range of possible values for the expo

For a typical assessment the three factors to be assessed are:. Severity: What is the severity of the effect? A failure inevitably creates an effect and the severity of the effect is judged on a scale of 1 to 10. A rating of 1 indicates a low severity of effect should a failure occur and a rating of 10 indicates a very high severity of effect should a failure occur.. Probability: What is the probability of the failure occurring? A failure can be likely to unlikely and the probability of failure occurring is judged on a scale of 1 to 10. A rating of 1 indicates a low probability that a failure will occur and a rating of 10 indicates a very high probability that a failure will occur.. Detection: What is the likelihood that a failure will be detected before it becomes critical? A potential failure may be easily detected and avoided or very difficult to detect and avoid. A rating of 1 indicates a high probability of detection and avoidance before failure and a rating of 10 indicates a very low ...
