Internet use among urban Malaysians: Network diversity effects

This study examines social network diversity in urban areas relative to residents’ usage of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Individual-level variation in social network diversity was measured using position generator data collected as part of a survey conducted in Malaysia’s Klang Valley (N = 808). Regression analyses were performed to assess the extent to...

A fixed point theorem for smooth extension maps

Let X be a compact smooth n-manifold, with or without boundary, and let A be an -dimensional smooth submanifold of the interior of X. Let be a smooth map and be a smooth map whose restriction to A is ϕ. If is an isolated fixed point of f that is a transversal fixed point of ϕ, that is, the linear transformation is nonsingular, then the fixed point index of f at p satisfies the...

Factors associated with grade 1 hypertension: implications for hypertension care based on the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) in primary care settings

Background A Reference Framework for Hypertension Care was recently developed by Hong Kong government to emphasise the importance of primary care for subjects with high blood pressure (BP). The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) interventional regime was recommended for patients aged 40–70 years with grade 1 hypertension (having systolic BP of 140-159 mmHg and/or...

A Transdiagnostic Community-Based Mental Health Treatment for Comorbid Disorders: Development and Outcomes of a Randomized Controlled Trial among Burmese Refugees in Thailand

In a randomized controlled trial, Paul Bolton and colleagues investigate whether a transdiagnostic community-based intervention is effective for improving mental health symptoms among Burmese refugees in Thailand. Please see later in the article for the Editors' Summary

Interior fixed points of unit-sphere-preserving Euclidean maps

Schirmer proved that there is a class of smooth self-maps of the unit sphere in Euclidean n-space with the property that any smooth self-map of the unit ball that extends a map of that class must have at least one fixed point in the interior of the ball. We generalize Schirmer’s result by proving that a smooth self-map of Euclidean n-space that extends a self-map of the unit...

Recognizing thyrotoxicosis in a patient with bipolar mania: a case report

Background A thyroid stimulating hormone level is commonly measured in patients presenting with symptoms of mania in order to rule out an underlying general medical condition such as hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis. Indeed, many cases have been reported in which a patient is initially treated for bipolar mania, but is later found to have a thyroid condition. Several case...

Serum S100B: A Potential Biomarker for Suicidality in Adolescents?

Background Studies have shown that patients suffering from depression or schizophrenia often have immunological alterations that can be detected in the blood. Others reported a possible link between inflammation, a microgliosis and the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in suicidal patients. Serum S100B is a marker of BBB function commonly used to study cerebrovascular wall function...

Nkx6.1 Controls a Gene Regulatory Network Required for Establishing and Maintaining Pancreatic Beta Cell Identity

All pancreatic endocrine cell types arise from a common endocrine precursor cell population, yet the molecular mechanisms that establish and maintain the unique gene expression programs of each endocrine cell lineage have remained largely elusive. Such knowledge would improve our ability to correctly program or reprogram cells to adopt specific endocrine fates. Here, we show that...
