BACKGROUND: The majority of research about employment discrimination in the U.S. Mining, Quarrying, and Oil/Gas (MQOGE) industries has concentrated on gender and race, while little attention has focused on disability. OBJECTIVE: To explore allegations of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title I discrimination made to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by individuals with disabilities against MQOGE employers. METHODS: Key data available to this study included demographic characteristics of charging parties, size of employers, types of allegations, and case outcomes...

Background: We sought to evaluate the impact of adjuvant chemotherapy on overall survival (OS) in patients with stage I endometrioid epithelial ovarian cancer (EEOC) or ovarian clear cell cancer (OCCC) using a national database. Patients and methods: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database was used to identify patients diagnosed with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage I EEOC or OCCC from 2000 to 2013. We sought to identify predictors of chemotherapy use and to assess the impact of chemotherapy on OS in these patients...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this survey study is to investigate behaviors in conflict with the ethical standards of the Medical Physics Residency (MedPhys) Match (MPM) process as stated in the MPM rules (a) and with the nondiscrimination regulations of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) (b), in addition to other behaviors that may in other ways erode the fairness of the system. METHODS: A survey was sent to all applicants and program directors registered for the 2015 and 2016 MPM...

BACKGROUND: An editorial expression of concern (EEoC) is issued by editors or publishers to draw attention to potential problems in a publication, without itself constituting a retraction or correction. METHODS: We searched PubMed, PubMed Central (PMC), and Google Scholar to identify EEoCs issued for publications in PubMed and PMC up to 22 August 2016. We also searched the archives of the Retraction Watch blog, some journal and publisher websites, and studies of EEoCs...

Lymphatic complications are a common occurrence after staging surgery for early-stage ovarian cancer (eEOC). We investigated whether the introduction of minimally invasive surgery influences the risk of developing lymphoceles and lymphorrhea in patients undergoing staging for eEOC. For this purpose, data of consecutive patients affected by eEOC undergoing staging surgery between January 1980 and January 2016 were retrospectively reviewed, and a systematic review and meta-analysis was performed. This systematic review was registered in the International Prospective Register of Systematic Review...

Few studies investigated the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of early-stage epithelial ovarian cancer (eEOC). In this context, we aimed to review the current evidence comparing laparoscopy and the laparotomic approach for staging procedures in eEOC. This systematic review was registered in the International Prospective Register of Systematic Reviews. Overall, 3065 patients were included: 1450 undergoing laparoscopy and 1615 undergoing laparotomic staging. Patients undergoing laparoscopy experienced a longer (but not statistically significant) operative time (weighted mean difference [WMD] = 28...

PURPOSE: To investigate behaviors that may be in conflict with ethical standards of the Medical Physics Residency (MedPhys) Match process and with best practices for adhering to non-discrimination regulations of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). METHODS: A confidential survey was sent to registered applicants and program directors for the 2014/2015 MedPhys Match. Survey questions included demographics, application, interview and post-interview experiences, match results, and overall satisfaction with the process...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Growing evidence supports the safety of a laparoscopic approach for patients affected by apparent early-stage ovarian cancer. However, no well-designed studies comparing laparoscopic and open surgical staging are available. In the present investigation we aimed to provide a balanced long-term comparison between these 2 approaches. DESIGN: Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING: Tertiary center...

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) is issuing a final rule to amend the regulations implementing Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 as they relate to employer-sponsored wellness programs. This rule addresses the extent to which an employer may offer an inducement to an employee for the employee's spouse to provide information about the spouse's manifestation of disease or disorder as part of a health risk assessment (HRA) administered in connection with an employer-sponsored wellness program...

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) is issuing its final rule to amend the regulations and interpretive guidance implementing Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to provide guidance on the extent to which employers may use incentives to encourage employees to participate in wellness programs that ask them to respond to disability-related inquiries and/or undergo medical examinations. This rule applies to all wellness programs that include disability-related inquiries and/or medical examinations whether they are offered only to employees enrolled in an employer-sponsored group health plan, offered to all employees regardless of whether they are enrolled in such a plan, or offered as a benefit of employment by employers that do not sponsor a group health plan or group health insurance...

BACKGROUND: The current West African outbreak of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) began in Guinea in December 2013 and rapidly spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. On 20 July 2014, a sick individual flew into Lagos, Nigeria, from Monrovia, Liberia, setting off an outbreak in Lagos and later in Port Harcourt city. The government of Nigeria, supported by the World Health Organization and other partners, mounted a response to the outbreak relying on the polio program experiences and infrastructure...

OBJECTIVE: Fertility-sparing surgery (FSS) is a strategy often considered in young patients with low-grade (G1-2) early-stage epithelial ovarian cancer (eEOC), while is still controversial in high-risk patients. We investigated the role of FSS in low and high-risk eEOC patients undergoing comprehensive surgical staging. METHODS: We analyzed data from patients operated for an eEOC from 1975 to 2011, focusing on patients submitted to FSS. Seventy patients out of 307 with eEOC were identified...

OBJECTIVE: Fertility sparing surgery (FSS) is a strategy often considered in young patients with early epithelial ovarian cancer. We investigated the role and the outcomes of FSS in eEOC patients who underwent comprehensive surgery. METHODS: From January 2003 to January 2011, 24 patients underwent fertility sparing surgery. Eighteen were one-to-one matched and balanced for stage, histologic type and grading with a group of patients who underwent radical comprehensive staging (n=18)...

Diabetic nephropathy is the most frequent single cause of end-stage renal disease in our society. Microvascular damage is a key event in diabetes-associated organ malfunction. Early endothelial outgrowth cells (eEOCs) act protective in murine acute kidney injury. The aim of the present study was to analyze consequences of eEOC treatment of murine diabetic nephropathy with special attention on endothelial-to-mesenchymal transdifferentiation, autophagy, senescence, and apoptosis. Male C57/Bl6N mice (8-12 wk old) were treated with streptozotocin for 5 consecutive days...

BACKGROUND: Comprehensive surgical staging plays an important role in apparent early-stage epithelial ovarian cancer (eEOC). However, few studies have evaluated how often upstaging occurs solely as a result of microscopic metastases identified from omentectomy and random peritoneal biopsies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the significance of omentectomy and random peritoneal biopsies for normal-appearing tissues in eEOC. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed of patients with eEOC [International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) Stages I-IIIA] between 1991 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: Early endothelial outgrowth cells (eEOCs) protect mice from acute kidney injury (AKI). Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPAR-α) has been shown to mediate renoprotective effects under different experimental conditions. The aim of the study was to investigate consequences of fibrate treatment of murine eEOCs in a cell-based therapeutic approach to AKI. METHODS: Male C57/Bl6N mice, subjected to unilateral renal ischemia (40 min) post-uninephrectomy, were systemically injected with 0...
