BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Sleep disorder and depression are prevalent in patients on dialysis but less investigated in earlier-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of depression, anxiety, health anxiety, and sleep disturbance and explore the association between CKD stage, psychological symptoms and sleep quality. METHODS: We recruited 326 patients with CKD (stage 1-5) not on dialysis from the nephrology clinic. All participants completed the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Health Anxiety Questionnaire (HAQ), and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI)...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Substantial progress was made in acute kidney injury (AKI) over the past 10 years, but no therapeutic interventions have been shown to prevent AKI or accelerate functional recovery after injury. A large number of preclinical studies supports the use of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) to prevent AKI, but the clinical trial data are inconclusive. To address concerns about preclinical study design and reporting in AKI, we here presented our rigorous experiments on the use of rHuEPO in a mouse model simulating the most common post-ischemic AKI in patients...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: This study was conducted to evaluate the influence of mucogingival parameters, including keratinized mucosa (KM) and attached gingiva (AG), on the outcome of non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT). METHODS: A total of 204 non-smoking patients with generalized chronic periodontitis who received NSPT between 2012 and 2014 were included. The Mantel-Haenszel chi-square test was used to assess the associations between initial mucogingival parameters and initial clinical parameters on the buccal aspect, and the associations between initial mucogingival parameters and outcome clinical parameters on the buccal aspect of the sites with severe periodontal destruction...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Night eating syndrome (NES) is a diagnosis newly introduced in the fifth version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This study investigated the characteristics of NES in individuals with eating disorders and the clinical significance of NES in individuals with bulimia nervosa (BN).

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a chronic autoimmune disease affecting oral health. Evidence shows possible association between T1DM and periodontal diseases (PDs). We conducted a nationwide population-based study in Taiwan, with a 14-year follow-up to investigate the risk of PDs in T1DM patients. METHODS: We used data from the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan. The T1DM cohort was identified with newly diagnosed T1DM from 1998 to 2011...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: We aimed to identify the risk factors of first-time occurrence of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) among aspirin users after adjusting for confounding factors like age, gender, underlying co-morbidities, and medications. METHODS: Using the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan and matching age, gender, underlying co-morbidities and enrollment time by propensity score, 11105 aspirin users and 11105 controls were identified for comparison from a cohort dataset of 1,000,000 randomly sampled subjects...

BACKGROUND: Colonic angiodysplasia (AGD) is a common cause of gastrointestinal bleeding. However, information on the characteristics and prevalence of colonic AGD is limited. We determined the clinical features of and risk factors for active bleeding in colonic AGD in a Taiwanese population. METHODS: From February 2007 to December 2016, 13,047 patients undergoing 16,760 colonoscopies at the Tri-Service General Hospital were included in this study. Eighty-four patients were diagnosed with AGD...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is common and associated with certain comorbidities. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of selected comorbidities in patients with RAUs and to compare the risks of comorbidity between the two cohorts of patients with or without RAUs based on the Taiwanese National Health Insurance Research Database. METHODS: This case-control study included patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis (the RAS cohort) and patients without recurrent aphthous stomatitis using 1:1 matching for year of index date, age, sex, monthly income, geographical location, and urbanization level (the non-RAS cohort)...

North America experienced life-threatening outbreaks of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) in 2014. We retrospectively detected EV-D68 from a child with Wilson's disease in 2008 in Taiwan. After comparing this EV-D68/Taiwan/2008 strain with EV-D68 genomes obtained from the public domain, it was classified as genome type 1-B; it is phylogenetically related to the predominant EV-D68 viruses that circulated in 2009 in Vietnam. It is necessary to strengthen EV-D68 detection globally, including in children with acute liver failure...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Sofosbuvir (SOF) and daclatasvir (DCV) treatment achieves excellent efficacy and safety in treating chronic hepatitis C (CHC) with various genotypes. Real world experience of SOF/DCV regimen to treat genotype 2 CHC was scanty in Asia. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of SOF/DCV with or without ribavirin to treat genotype 2 CHC patients in real world practice in Taiwan. METHODS: Patients with genotype 2 CHC treated with 12-week of SOF/DCV or SOF/DCV/ribavirin were enrolled prospectively...

Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine), secreted by the pineal gland is known to perform multiple functions including, antioxidant, anti-hypertensive, anti-cancerous, immunomodulatory, sedative and tranquilizing functions. Melatonin is also known to be involved in the regulation of body mass index, control the gastrointestinal system and play an important role in cardioprotection, thermoregulation, and reproduction. Recently, several studies have reported the efficacy of Melatonin in treating various pain syndromes...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the gaps between expectation and the perception of service quality in the care setting of prolonged mechanical ventilation (MV). METHODS: We conducted this prospective study at the Respiratory Care Center (RCC) of a medical center from February 2017 to January 2018. Family members of the patients admitted to the RCC completed a questionnaire based on the SERVQUAL instrument in two sections - expectation and perception, consisting of 22 questions each in five dimensions...
