L C Miccio-Fonseca
Response to Ross on his comments regarding my purported misunderstanding of Ross's article and the DSM-V (Ross, 2015). Although Ross claims he offered no personal opinions of any kind in his commentary, undeniably there were two separate and independent comments in (Miccio-Fonseca (2015) and DeFeo (2015) addressing similar issues. Is this coincidental? This author maintains the stance expressed in the cited commentary.

I am a young doctor who graduated from the Medical University of Silesia in 2014. After 13 months of postgraduate training, passing a state examination and successful completion of the admission process I made a decision to specialise in Respiratory Medicine. I started working in a large clinical hospital that provides junior doctors with excellent opportunities for training and career development. The respiratory unit is highly specialised and deals with sleep-related medical problems, interstitial lung diseases and respiratory failure, which may be treated using noninvasive mechanical ventilation...

The day starts at 8:00 h with a clinical session in the Respiratory Service of the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, in Barcelona, Spain; from 8:00 to 9:00 h, a colleague discusses and explains to the rest of the department the most important articles published in the past month in his assigned respiratory journal. I run out at 8:55 h as I am about to start a respiratory outpatient clinic, where I will see 24 patients over the next few hours. Hopefully I'll have a break at 15:00 h so that I have the opportunity to have lunch and recover my energy to immerse myself in the evening-night shift...

When I agreed to contribute a short piece about my experiences as a junior doctor in respiratory medicine I was spending the night on call at my workplace, the Department of Pulmonology, Semmelweis University. So it seemed pretty straightforward to write about my very recent journey through that night, including details to give you a general overview of my nights spent on call. I decided to write this essay the next morning, to ensure I would still be in the same mood.

[Purpose] Hormone replacement therapy has been reported to be effective for alleviating menopausal symptoms, its side effects have been a concern. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate methods that could alleviate menopausal symptoms but with fewer side effects. Few previous reports have investigated the effects of simplified, viable manual lymph drainage, particularly the effects of one-time therapy on physiologically active substances and other variables. Effects of one-time simplified lymph drainage performed at salon A were investigated in females with any type of menopausal symptoms, such as edema or a sense of fatigue...

Question Parents of a 12-month-old boy are bringing their son in to my family practice clinic for his well-baby visit. As the infant is due for his 12-month vaccine series, the parents are concerned after hearing about the association between certain vaccinations and an increased risk of febrile seizures, and are wondering if they should administer prophylactic antipyretics to decrease the risk of febrile seizure. What vaccinations are associated with increased risk of febrile seizure, and is there evidence supporting prophylactic administration of antipyretics to prevent febrile seizures? Answer Vaccinations associated with increased risk of febrile seizure include the following: the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine; the measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine; the combined diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, polio, and Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine; the whole-cell pertussis vaccine; the 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine; and concomitant administration of the trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine with either the 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine or the diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis vaccine...

BACKGROUND: Overall, 30%-45% of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) are non-adherent and have difficulties taking their medications; this non-adherence increases the risk of clinical relapse 1.4- to 5.5-fold. This study aimed to clarify the strategies patients employ to facilitate adherence and determine whether the strategies had an impact on good adherence. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional survey using a self-administered questionnaire and review of medical records...

Carol V Robinson
Twenty-five years ago, we obtained our first mass spectra of molecular chaperones in complex with protein ligands and entered a new field of gas-phase structural biology. It is perhaps now time to pause and reflect, and to ask how many of our initial structure predictions and models derived from mass spectrometry (MS) datasets were correct. With recent advances in structure determination, many of the most challenging complexes that we studied over the years have become tractable by other structural biology approaches enabling such comparisons to be made...

BACKGROUND: Electronic personal health records (PHRs) can support patient self-management of chronic conditions. Managing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) viral load, through taking antiretroviral therapy (ART) is crucial to long term survival of persons with HIV. Many persons with HIV have difficulty adhering to their ART over long periods of time. PHRs contribute to chronic disease self-care and may help persons with HIV remain adherent to ART. Proportionally veterans with HIV are among the most active users of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) PHR, called My HealtheVet...

This article is a combination of an autobiography and a review of outstanding research done by over 70 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scientists along with excellent collaborators during my over-40-year career as a professor of reproductive physiology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I have also shared thoughts on mentoring, how research has changed over the years, and the future of reproductive physiology. I provide the reader with a snapshot of the challenges faced by a woman eager to obtain a PhD under the guidance of renowned professors in the early 1970s and to be hired as the first woman, and the only permanent female faculty member, for more than 20 years on a faculty of 40 men...

From the 1920s to the 1950s, California sterilized approximately 20,000 people in state homes and hospitals based on a eugenic law that authorized medical superintendents to perform reproductive surgeries on patients deemed unfit and "suffering from a mental affliction likely to be inherited." Working with a unique resource - a dataset created from 19,000 sterilization recommendations - my team and I have reconstructed patterns and experiences of institutionalization of sterilizations. This article presents several of our important initial findings related to ethnic and gender bias in sterilization policies, and reflects on the relevance of the history for contemporary issues in genomics and social justice...

My husband Richard - known to everyone as Jake - had been admitted to ward 21 at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in Shropshire with side effects from stage five small bowel cancer. We knew his diagnosis was terminal, but at this point we thought he still had 18-24 months to live, following seven cycles of chemotherapy.

This study investigates the relationship between the general question, "Is your child/are you back to normal?" and a validated postconcussive symptom scale when assessing symptom resolution following concussion. Children with acute concussion were enrolled during an emergency department visit. Sensitivity and specificity analyses compared the true/false question, "My child is/I am back to normal" at 3 days postinjury with the Concussion Symptom Inventory (CSI; gold standard). A total of 201 participants were enrolled in the study with complete data...

PURPOSE: A recent dose-finding study showed no significant differences in number of mature oocytes, embryos and top-quality embryos when triptorelin doses of 0.2, 0.3 or 0.4 mg were used to trigger final oocyte maturation in oocyte donors co-treated with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist. This analysis investigated whether triptorelin dosing for triggering final oocyte maturation in oocyte donors induced differences in follicular fluid (FF) hormone levels and granulosa cell gene expression...

REVIEW
Mengliang Zhang
Monoamine neurotransmitters play an important role in the modulation of sensory, motor and autonomic functions in the spinal cord. Although traditionally it is believed that in mammalian spinal cord, monoamine neurotransmitters mainly originate from the brain, accumulating evidence indicates that especially when the spinal cord is injured, they can also be produced in the spinal cord. In this review, I will present evidence for a possible pathway for two-step synthesis of dopamine and serotonin in the spinal cord...

In this paper, I analyze the disruptive impact of Darwinian selectionism for the century-long tradition in which the environment had a direct causative role in shaping an organism's traits. In the case of humans, the surrounding environment often determined not only the physical, but also the mental and moral features of individuals and whole populations. With its apparatus of indirect effects, random variations, and a much less harmonious view of nature and adaptation, Darwinian selectionism severed the deep imbrication of organism and milieu posited by these traditional environmentalist models...
