Misclassification of child body mass index from cut-points defined by rounded percentiles instead of Z-scores

Using data from the TARGet Kids primary care network we conducted a cross-sectional study among 5836 children < 6 years of age. The World Health Organization growth standards were used to calculate BMI-for...

Validation of two multiplex platforms to quantify circulating markers of inflammation and endothelial injury in severe infection

Biomarkers can prognosticate outcome and enable risk-stratification. In severe infection, focusing on multiple markers reflecting pathophysiological mechanisms of organ injury could enhance management and pathway-directed therapeutics. Limited data exist on the performance of multiplex biomarker platforms. Our goal was to compare endothelial and immune activation biomarkers in...

Given that patients provide most of their own diabetes care, patient self-management training is an important strategy for improving quality of care. Web-based interventions have the potential to bridge gaps in diabetes self-care and self-management...

Differences in the Volume of Pharmaceutical Advertisements between Print General Medical Journals

Background Pharmaceutical advertisements have been argued to provide revenue that medical journals require but they are intended to alter prescribing behaviour and they are known to include low quality information. We determined whether a difference exists in the current level of pharmaceutical advertising in print general medical journals, and we estimated the revenue generated...

However, participation in self management programs is low. In addition, the efficacy of current behavioural interventions wanes over time, reducing the impact of self...
