Physicians’ preferences for bone metastases treatments in France, Germany and the United Kingdom

Several bone-targeted agents (BTAs) are available for preventing skeletal-related events (SREs), but they vary in terms of efficacy, safety and mode of administration. This study assessed data on European physicians’ treatment preferences for preventing SREs in patients with bone metastases from solid tumours. Physicians completed a web-based discrete-choice experiment survey of...

Treatment patterns and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) goal attainment among patients receiving high- or moderate-intensity statins

Background European clinical guidelines recommend a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) goal of < 70 mg/dL. Statin use varies and past studies suggest low rates of real-world goal attainment. This study describes LDL-C goal attainment among atherosclerotic CV disease (ASCVD) patients with various utilization patterns of moderate- or high-intensity statins in routine care...

Longitudinal patterns of bone-targeted agent use among patients with solid tumors and bone metastases in the United States

Purpose This study examined real-world long-term use of guideline-recommended bone targeted agents (BTA) among patients with metastatic solid tumors. Methods Adults with a solid tumor diagnosis followed by a bone metastasis diagnosis in 2012–2014 were identified from electronic medical records in the Oncology Services Comprehensive Electronic Records (OSCER) database. Patients...

Intraoperative tremor in surgeons and trainees

OBJECTIVES Tremor may be expected to interfere with the performance of fine motor tasks such as surgery. While tremor is readily quantified in inactive subjects, it is more challenging to measure tremor as the subjects perform complex tasks. The objective of this work was to quantify tremor during the performance of a realistic simulated surgery.

Quantized Passive Dynamic Output Feedback Control with Actuator Failure

This paper investigates the problem of passive dynamic output feedback control for fuzzy discrete nonlinear systems with quantization and actuator failures, where the measurement output of the system is quantized by a logarithmic quantizer before being transferred to the fuzzy controller. By employing the fuzzy-basis-dependent Lyapunov function, sufficient condition is...

Identification of genes affecting alginate biosynthesis in Pseudomonas fluorescens by screening a transposon insertion library

Background Polysaccharides often are necessary components of bacterial biofilms and capsules. Production of these biopolymers constitutes a drain on key components in the central carbon metabolism, but so far little is known concerning if and how the cells divide their resources between cell growth and production of exopolysaccharides. Alginate is an industrially important linear...

Three Different Approaches to the Inferior Mesenteric Artery during Robotic D3 Lymphadenectomy for Rectal Cancer

Background In rectal cancer surgery, proximal ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) with radical lymphadenectomy is the accepted standard of care.1 Our purpose is to describe three different standardized technical approaches for the management of the IMA during D3 lymphadenectomy.2 Methods Operative videos of three robotic D3 lymphadenectomy procedures for rectal...

An Allele Real-Coded Quantum Evolutionary Algorithm Based on Hybrid Updating Strategy

For improving convergence rate and preventing prematurity in quantum evolutionary algorithm, an allele real-coded quantum evolutionary algorithm based on hybrid updating strategy is presented. The real variables are coded with probability superposition of allele. A hybrid updating strategy balancing the global search and local search is presented in which the superior allele is...
