BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Primary skin cancer prevention campaigns are essential and more effective among children, not only because of the importance of sun exposure effects during this period, but also because at this age is when individuals are developing behaviors. The Brazilian Society of Dermatology - Regional State of Sao Paulo developed and conducted, the program named "The Sun, Friend of Childhood", a school health education and disease prevention project for children and parents...

BACKGROUND: Rikuzentakata was one of the cities most devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. Many buildings were swept away or destroyed and affected families were placed into temporary housing. OBJECTIVES: To determine the impact of long term temporary housing on the BMI of elementary school children living in Rikuzentakata City. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of students attending 1st -3rd grade in 2010, 4th -6th grade in 2013, in 8 elementary schools in Rikuzentakata City...

Top-down proteomics using liquid chromatogram coupled with mass spectrometry has been increasingly applied for analyzing intact proteins to study genetic variation, alternative splicing, and post-translational modifications (PTMs) of the proteins (proteoforms). However, only a few tools have been developed for charge state deconvolution, monoisotopic/average molecular weight determination and quantitation of proteoforms from LC-MS1 spectra. Though Decon2LS and MASH Suite Pro have been available to provide intra-spectrum charge state deconvolution and quantitation, manual processing is still required to quantify proteoforms across multiple MS1 spectra...

Health education is fundamental in the management of RA patients. This study explored patient needs for educational material appropriate for RA patients in our region through a website. This study includes seven focus groups and semi-structured interviews across 4 countries (Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico) with 71 RA patients. Transcripts were analyzed by anthropologists using qualitative analysis (QA), resulting in themes and subthemes to be developed. Five themes and over 50 subthemes of interest were identified by patients...

COMICS is an interactive and open-access Web platform for integration and visualization of molecular expression data in anatomograms of zebrafish, carp and mouse model systems. Anatomical ontologies are used to map omics data across experiments and between an experiment and a particular visualization in a data dependent manner. COMICS is built on top of several existing resources. Zebrafish and mouse anatomical ontologies with their controlled vocabulary (CV) and defined hierarchy are used with the ontoCAT R package to aggregate data for comparison and visualization...

Infectious diseases is known as a serious medical discipline. Nevertheless some experiences related by patients and unusual studies can bring a smile on your face. In this article, you will find a sample of rare and original studies in this field, extracted from a collection of comical published medical articles.

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Jagannath M Muzumdar, Nicholas L Pantaleo
This study compared the following effects of two vaccine information flyers-one developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) versus one adapted from this information to a comic medium (comic)-on adults: (a) attitude toward the flyer; (b) perceived informativeness of the flyer; (c) intention to seek more information about adult immunizations after viewing the flyer; and (d) intention to get immunized after viewing the flyer. A between-group, randomized trial was used to randomly assign adults (age 18 years or older) at an ambulatory care center to review the CDC or comic flyer...

Research across domains has suggested that agents, the doers of actions, have a processing advantage over patients, the receivers of actions. We hypothesized that agents as "event builders" for discrete actions (e.g., throwing a ball, punching) build on cues embedded in their preparatory postures (e.g., reaching back an arm to throw or punch) that lead to (predictable) culminating actions, and that these cues afford frontloading of event structure processing. To test this hypothesis, we compared event-related brain potentials (ERPs) to averbal comic panels depicting preparatory agents (ex...

BACKGROUND: Self-help cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a useful approach for the treatment of psychological problems. Recent research on the effectiveness of self-help internet-based CBT (ICBT) indicates that the paradigm moderately improves psychological problems. Furthermore, previous studies have shown that food and drinks containing supplements improve various health conditions. We investigated the effect of a brief self-help ICBT administered with a supplement drink on psychological well-being and somatic symptoms...

This paper addresses the lack of accessibility of the comics for deaf or hard-of-hearing readers. Comics are a major cultural object, used in many different contexts with, as much as different purposes (leisure, education, advertising, etc.). We report here the results of an experimentation during a communication operation, including a regular exhibition made of panels and a digital mirroring of the contents, with extra materials and information. This digital part, accessible through our institution website, is the basement of this paper...

BACKGROUND: This study examined whether the comic book Neta and the Medikidz Explain JIA would improve disease-related knowledge and treatment adherence among patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, JIA patients answered 20 multiple-choice knowledge questions about their disease, before and after reading the comic book. Demographic, clinical, health-related quality of life and adherence data were recorded and correlated to the responses...

Angela Willey
Following Lynne Huffer's work on queer feminism, this abridged essay centers the figure of the lesbian in order to develop a dyke ethics that engenders nuanced thinking about both monogamy and embodiment. The essay reads Alison Bechdel's comic strip, Dykes to Watch Out For, to elaborate a "dyke ethics of anti-monogamy." Grounded in notions of friendship, community, and social justice, this ethics decenters the sexual dyad in a way that polyamory does not. It also insists upon a theoretical and ethical disposition of respect for the simultaneously political and embodied nature of desire...

Health literacy, the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand health information and services needed to make health decisions, is an essential element for early adults (aged 18-44 years) to make informed decisions about cancer. Low health literacy is one of the social determinants of health associated with cancer-related disparities. Over the past several years, a nonprofit organization, a university, and a cancer center in a major urban environment have developed and implemented health literacy programs within healthcare systems and in the community...
