Dong Chen, Dennis Petrie, Kam Tang, Dongjie Wu
The Chinese population is aging rapidly while both the pension system is underdeveloped and the traditional family care arrangement is in retreat. This article's objective is to assess the relationship between concerns over retirement saving sufficiency and the mental health status of middle-aged and older Chinese adults, and identify the socioeconomic and demographic profile of those with insufficient retirement savings. A survey from about 2000 respondents collected information on self-assessed physical and mental health status based on the EQ-5D-5L framework, self-assessed longevity, retirement plans and financial preparedness and socioeconomic status...

Tobias Krettenauer, Rosemary Victor
Moral identity research to date has largely failed to provide evidence for developmental trends in moral identity, presumably because of restrictions in the age range of studies and the use of moral identity measures that are insensitive to age-related change. The present study investigated moral identity motivation across a broad age range (14-65 years, M = 33.48; N = 252) using a modified version of the Good Self-Assessment Interview. Individuals' moral identity motivation was coded and categorized as external, internal, or relationship-oriented...

Currently, definite diagnosis of sleep bruxism requires polysomnography. However, it is restrictedly available, and too cumbersome and expensive for the purpose. The aim of this study was to introduce an ambulatory electrode set and evaluate its feasibility for more cost-effective diagnostics of sleep bruxism. Six self-assessed bruxers (one male, five females; aged 21-58 years) and six healthy controls (four males, two females, aged 21-25 years) underwent a standard polysomnographic study and a concurrent study with the ambulatory electrode set...

Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) is the common pre-malignant B cell disorders with a general prevalence of 3-5 % at age over 50. Because of the potential malignant transformation and immune insufficiency, pre-transplant MGUS recipient should be carefully followed after allograft transplantation. The post-transplant prognosis and quality of life (QOL) in patient with MGUS have not yet been fully determined. The aim of this study is to evaluate function and pathology of the renal allograft and self-assessment QOL changes during 2 years after transplantation in our case of MGUS-bearing recipient...

Sexual maturity rating (SMR) is important in population studies and in clinical care. Pubertal staging allows doctors to assess the maturation of adolescents to correlate several pubertal phenomena such as age at menarche, growth spurt and final height, to advise and manage patients appropriately and to have sensitive "sensors" of the effects of environmental exposure on human populations. The commonly used markers of the timing of female puberty are thelarche and menarche. Appearance of the breast bud is the first indicator of puberty onset in 90% of girls...
