A Review of Surgical Outcomes and Advances for Macular Holes

The surgical outcomes of macular holes (MHs) have improved greatly in recent years. The closure rate is as high as 90–100%, but the outcomes of some special types of MHs remain unsatisfactory. Internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling dramatically improves the anatomic success rate, but recent studies have found that it could also cause mechanical and subclinical traumatic changes...

Approaches to the selection of cold chain logistics enterprises under hesitant fuzzy environment based on decision distance measures

Hesitant fuzzy sets are very useful in dealing with decision making problems for imprecise information. Taking account that there exist differences among the decision information given by decision makers and the hesitant fuzzy information given is in different accurate levels, we propose the concept of accuracy weight vector based on the decision distance measures for hesitant...

Association of ABO Blood Types and Clinicopathological Features of Prostate Cancer

Purpose. To investigate the association between ABO blood types and clinicopathological characteristics in patients with prostate cancer (PC). Methods. A total of 237 pathologically diagnosed PC patients were enrolled. All patients were classified as low–middle or high-risk group. The correlation of ABO blood types with high-risk PC was determined by univariate and multivariate...

Fine mapping of a male sterility gene ms-3 in a novel cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) mutant

Key message The cucumber male sterility gene ms - 3 was fine mapped in a 76 kb region harboring an MMD1 -like gene Csa3M006660 that may be responsible for the male sterile in cucumber. Abstract A cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) male sterile mutant (ms-3) in an advanced-generation inbred line was identified, and genetic analysis revealed that the male sterility trait was controlled...

Economic Modeling of Heart Failure Telehealth Programs: When Do They Become Cost Saving?

Telehealth programs for congestive heart failure have been shown to be clinically effective. This study assesses clinical and economic consequences of providing telehealth programs for CHF patients. A Markov model was developed and presented in the context of a home-based telehealth program on CHF. Incremental life expectancy, hospital admissions, and total healthcare costs were...

PIM1-minicircle as a therapeutic treatment for myocardial infarction

PIM1, a pro-survival gene encoding a serine/ threonine kinase, influences cell proliferation and survival. Modification of cardiac progenitor cells (CPCs) or cardiomyocytes with PIM1 using a lentivirus-based delivery method showed long-term improved cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI). However, lentivirus based delivery methods have stringent FDA regulation with...

Prevalence of Depression among Chinese University Students: A Meta-Analysis

Background Depression is a major mental health issue worldwide, and university students with heavy burdens of study are at a high risk for depression. While a number of studies have been conducted regarding depression among university students in China, there is a lack of information regarding the national prevalence of depression among Chinese university students. Therefore, we...

A Nomogram to Predict Adequate Lymph Node Recovery before Resection of Colorectal Cancer

Increased lymph node count (LNC) has been associated with prolonged survival in colorectal cancer (CRC), but the underlying mechanisms are still poorly understood. The study aims to identify new predictors and develop a preoperative nomogram for predicting the probability of adequate LNC (≥ 12). 501 eligible patients were retrospectively selected to identify clinical-pathological...
