RCT of an integrated CBT-HIV intervention on depressive symptoms and HIV risk

Depression and depressive symptoms mediate the association between drug use and HIV risk. Yet, there are few interventions that target depressive symptoms and HIV risk for people who use drugs (PWUD). This study was a randomized controlled trial of an integrated cognitive behavioral therapy and HIV prevention intervention to reduce depressive symptoms, injection risk behaviors and ...

Methodology for implementing power plant efficiency standards for power generation: potential emission reduction

Some methods of generating power such as power generation through coal, natural gas, oil result in inevitable emissions of greenhouse gases. While power generation is necessary due to its increasing demand, it is important for power companies to generate their power in an efficient manner to reduce its effect on the environment. One of the most effective ways of tackling ...

Teachers’ Experiences Providing One-on-One Instruction to Struggling Readers

This study examined the experiences of 12 kindergarten, first-, and second-grade classroom teachers who provided one-on-one intervention instruction for struggling readers within the general classroom context. Teachers were interviewed at the end of the project. Interview statements clustered into four themes: Managing One-on-One Intervention, Observing Student Growth, Acquiring ...

Effects of genetic polymorphisms on the OCT1 and OCT2-mediated uptake of ranitidine

Background Ranitidine (Zantac®) is a H2-receptor antagonist commonly used for the treatment of acid-related gastrointestinal diseases. Ranitidine was reported to be a substrate of the organic cation transporters OCT1 and OCT2. The hepatic transporter OCT1 is highly genetically variable. Twelve major alleles confer partial or complete loss of OCT1 activity. The effects of these ...

Correction to: Impact of surgeon experience on routine prolapse operations

The article "Impact of surgeon experience on routine prolapse operations", written by Emil Nüssler, Jacob Kjær Eskildsen, Emil Karl Nüssler, Marie Bixo, and Mats Löfgren, was originally published without open access.

Contrasting amino acid profiles among permissive and non-permissive hosts of Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus, putative causal agent of Huanglongbing

Huanglongbing is a devastating disease of citrus. In this study, a comprehensive profile of phloem sap amino acids (AA) in four permissive host plants of Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas) and three non-permissive Rutaceae plants was conducted to gain a better understanding of host factors that may promote or suppress the bacterium. The AA profiles of Diaphorina citri nymphs ...

Dynamic MRI to quantify musculoskeletal motion: A systematic review of concurrent validity and reliability, and perspectives for evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders

Purpose To report evidence for the concurrent validity and reliability of dynamic MRI techniques to evaluate in vivo joint and muscle mechanics, and to propose recommendations for their use in the assessment of normal and impaired musculoskeletal function. Materials and methods The search was conducted on articles published in Web of science, PubMed, Scopus, Academic search ...

Correction to: Metastasectomy for Tumor-Infiltrating Lymphocytes: An Emerging Operative Indication in Surgical Oncology

In the original article the middle initial of Nicholas D. Klemen was inadvertently omitted. On the first page of the original article, under the heading A Novel Way to Fight Cancer, there was an error in the third sentence. The corrected text is as follows: For example, the presence of T cells within tumors of colorectal origin can be a superior predictor of patient survival ...

Purpose: To explore teachers’ opinions about the design and deployment of teaching materials in class, with specific focus on the implications for professional development of self-produced resources.Design/methodology/approach: A mixed methods research design involving the administration of a questionnaire to a sample of 864 teachers and the implementation of two case studies of ...

Models and algorithms for energy-efficient scheduling with immediate start of jobs

We study a scheduling model with speed scaling for machines and the immediate start requirement for jobs. Speed scaling improves the system performance, but incurs the energy cost. The immediate start condition implies that each job should be started exactly at its release time. Such a condition is typical for modern Cloud computing systems with abundant resources. We consider two ...

Synthetic data for open and reproducible methodological research in social sciences and official statistics

Open and reproducible research receives more and more attention in the research community. Whereas empirical research may benefit from research data centres or scientific use files that foster using data in a safe environment or with remote access, methodological research suffers from the availability of adequate data sources. In economic and social sciences, an additional drawback ...

Quality of life of patients with locally advanced head and neck cancer treated with induction chemotherapy followed by cisplatin-containing chemoradiotherapy in the Dutch CONDOR study: a randomized controlled trial

Purpose The CONDOR study showed that docetaxel/cisplatin/5-fluorouracil (TPF) followed by conventional radiotherapy with cisplatin 100 mg/m2 on days 1, 22, and 43 (cis100 + RT; n = 27)) versus accelerated radiotherapy with cisplatin weekly 40 mg/m2 (cis40 + ART; n = 29) in locally advanced head and neck cancer (LAHNC) patients was not feasible. Here, we report the analysis of ...

Are There Gender Differences in Emotion Comprehension? Analysis of the Test of Emotion Comprehension

This article examines whether there are gender differences in understanding the emotions evaluated by the Test of Emotion Comprehension (TEC). The TEC provides a global index of emotion comprehension in children 3–11 years of age, which is the sum of the nine components that constitute emotion comprehension: (1) recognition of facial expressions, (2) understanding of external ...

Recovery after critical illness: putting the puzzle together—a consensus of 29

In this review, we seek to highlight how critical illness and critical care affect longer-term outcomes, to underline the contribution of ICU delirium to cognitive dysfunction several months after ICU discharge, to give new insights into ICU acquired weakness, to emphasize the importance of value-based healthcare, and to delineate the elements of family-centered care. This ...

Restrictive surgical approach to palliate angina in a patient with coronary three vessel disease and biventricular metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma

Metastatic cardiac tumors may cause different symptoms including angina, symptoms of heart failure and/or arrhythmia. In patients with concomitant coronary artery disease, it may be difficult to distinguish between angina caused by metastases to the heart, for example, by stealing perfusion from the coronary arteries, and angina caused by coronary stenosis. Identifying the origin ...
