As the partner of Integrative Zoology, Wiley established the co-publishing relationship with the journal back in 2006. Over the past ten years, we have all witnessed the continuous, steady growth and development of the journal, which led the journal to be one of the highest-ranking journals in Zoology published worldwide. Starting with no Impact Factor at the beginning to entering the first quartile among all the Zoological journals indexed by SCI, Integrative Zoology has achieved a tremendous accomplishment over the past decade...

On behalf of the Advisory Board, I wish to congratulate the Integrative Zoology, on the 10th Anniversary of the journal Integrative Zoology. Ten years ago, in 2006, Integrative Zoology was launched as the new multidisciplinary flagship journal of the newly formed ISZS, and became central to our founding mission to promote zoology as an integrative discipline and to provide an attractive publishing venue for original research and reviews that present a broader perspective of zoological inquiry. Its debut issue, formed by a compilation of selected landmark papers from the first International Symposium of Integrative Zoology, are still some of the most downloaded and cited articles to this day...

BACKGROUND: Rising rates of childhood obesity have become a pressing issue in public health, threatening both the mental and physical well-being of children. Attempts to address this problem are multifaceted, and in England include the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) which assesses weight status in English primary school children in reception class (aged 4-5) and in year 6 (aged 10-11), with results being sent out to parents. However the effectiveness and impact of this routine parental feedback has yet to be fully understood...

Parental perceptions of their children's weight status may limit their willingness to participate in or acknowledge the importance of early interventions to prevent childhood obesity. This study aimed to examine potential differences in Hispanic mothers' and fathers' perceptions of childhood obesity, lifestyle behaviors and communication preferences to inform the development of culturally appropriate childhood obesity interventions. A qualitative study using focus groups was conducted. Groups (one for mothers and one for fathers) were composed of Hispanic parents (n = 12) with at least one girl and one boy (≤ 10 years old) who were patients at a pediatric clinic in Tennessee, USA...

The results of previous studies evaluated the accuracy of serum, and urinary measurements of cytokeratin-19 fragment (CYFRA 21-1) for the diagnosis of bladder cancer were inconsistent. We read with great interest the recent systematic review of diagnostic accuracy of CYFRA 21-1 for bladder cancer by Huang et al. The systematic analysis demonstrated that the pooled sensitivities and specificities for serum and urine CYFRA 21-1 were 0.42 (95 % confidence interval (CI), 0.33-0.51), 0.82 (95 % CI, 0.70-0.90), 0...

There's never been a more exciting time to be involved with health informatics. In the last few decades, health informaticians have established the knowledge base and practical expertise to facilitate the development of ever-more capable technical systems, increasing connectivity, expanding access and greater mobility of e-health and information management systems. We have seen the evolution from simple computer based records to systems that allow intra-organisational, national, even international communication and information exchange...

UNLABELLED: Singing has long been used as a technique to enhance and reeducate temporal aspects of articulation in speech disorders. In the present study, differences in temporal structure of sung versus spoken speech were investigated in stuttering. In particular, the question was examined if singing helps to reduce VOT variability of voiceless plosives, which would indicate enhanced temporal coordination of oral and laryngeal processes. Eight German adolescents who stutter and eight typically fluent peers repeatedly spoke and sang a simple German congratulation formula in which a disyllabic target word (e...

The proposed new United States allocation system incorporates extensive research into an elegant plan designed to reduce wait list mortality while preserving post-transplant outcomes. All architects are to be congratulated. However, the future cannot be reliably modeled from the past as listing practices will evolve in response to new criteria. The new system should provide a major advance if and only if it is combined with a commitment to limit the number of listed patients overall and within each high priority status to the number that could reasonably undergo timely transplantation...

We read with great interest the recent original article published in the November issue of the Journal by CH Chang's group entitled 'Cardiovascular risks associated with second-line oral antidiabetic agents added to metformin in patients with Type 2 diabetes: a nationwide cohort study' [1], a comparison of the cardiovascular (CV) risk associated with acarbose add-on metformin. The authors are to be congratulated for providing more data regarding the treatment of patients with diabetes. The authors' conclusions confirm the findings from another recent analysis using the same Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI) database, which reported that prolonged use of acarbose in patients with diabetes reduced CV risk [2], but are in contrast to latest publication from Chang's own group [3]...
