A cross-sectional investigation into the occupational and socio-demographic characteristics of British police force employees reporting a dietary pattern associated with cardiometabolic risk: findings from the Airwave Health Monitoring Study

Purpose The aims of this study were to (1) determine the association between diet quality using the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) score and cardiometabolic risk in a British working population and (2) identify employee characteristics associated with reporting a poorer quality dietary pattern. Methods British police employees enrolled (2007–2012) into the Airwave...

Salinity in Drinking Water and the Risk of (Pre)Eclampsia and Gestational Hypertension in Coastal Bangladesh: A Case-Control Study

Background Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy are among the leading causes of maternal and perinatal death in low-income countries, but the aetiology remains unclear. We investigated the relationship between salinity in drinking water and the risk of (pre)eclampsia and gestational hypertension in a coastal community. Methods A population-based case-control study was conducted in...

A search for protein biomarkers links olfactory signal transduction to social immunity

Background The Western honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) is a critical component of human agriculture through its pollination activities. For years, beekeepers have controlled deadly pathogens such as Paenibacillus larvae, Nosema spp. and Varroa destructor with antibiotics and pesticides but widespread chemical resistance is appearing and most beekeepers would prefer to eliminate or...

Estimating Laboratory Precision of Urinary Albumin Excretion and Other Urinary Measures in the International Study on Macronutrients and Blood Pressure

Microalbuminuria is a risk factor for renal failure, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. However, estimating laboratory precision for albumin excretion is problematic because of its highly skewed distribution and the presence of values below assay detection limits. The authors used 781 quality control pairs from 24-hour urine samples collected between 1996 and 1999 in the...
