INTRODUCTION: The improvement of clinical departments' learning climate is central to achieving high-quality residency training and patient care. However, improving the learning climate can be challenging given its complexity as a multi-dimensional construct. Distinct representations of the dimensions might create different learning climate groups across departments and may require varying efforts to achieve improvement. Therefore, this study investigated: (1) whether distinct learning climate groups could be identified and (2) whether contextual factors could explain variation in departments' learning climate performance...

Ilhami Kiki
Since the demonstration that hematopoietic cells are present in circulating blood, peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) has become an area of interest. The invention of growth factors such as the granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and the availability of apheresis techniques allowed the wide application of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) in both autologous and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation settings. It has been since 1986 that clinically introduced, peripheral blood stem cells replaced bone marrow as a stem-cell source to nearly 100% in the autologous and to approximately 75% in the allogeneic transplantation setting...

Autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (AHCT) is a routinely used procedure in the treatment of adult patients presenting with multiple myeloma (MM), Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and various subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in upfront and relapsed/refractory settings. Successful hematopoietic progenitor cell mobilization (HPCM) and collection are the rate limiting first steps for application of AHCT. In 2015, almost 1700 AHCT procedures have been performed for MM, HL and NHL in Turkey. Although there are recently published consensus guidelines addressing critical issues regarding autologous HPCM, there is a tremendous heterogeneity in terms of mobilization strategies of transplant centers across the world...

OBJECTIVES: Clinical data suggest that the response of rheumatoid arthritis patients to treatment with golimumab is much lower among those who switched from adalimumab than among those who switched from etanercept. To elucidate the mechanism behind this difference in response to sequential biologic treatment, we examined the effect of TNF inhibitors on ex vivo cytokine production profiling. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, blood samples were obtained from patients before the start of a biologic...

Meaningful sounds represent the majority of sounds that humans hear and process in everyday life. Yet studies of human sound localization mainly use artificial stimuli such as clicks, pure tones, and noise bursts. The present study investigated the influence of behavioral relevance, sound category, and acoustic properties on the localization of complex, meaningful sounds in the horizontal plane. Participants localized vocalizations and traffic sounds with two levels of behavioral relevance (low and high) within each category, as well as amplitude-modulated tones...

The bouba-kiki effect refers to the correspondence between arbitrary visual and auditory stimuli. Previous studies indicate ASD persons' reduced bouba-kiki effect compared to controls. This study examines the relation between ASD symptomology and performance on the bouba-kiki task. Twenty ASD participants and 20 matched controls were presented the bouba-kiki task. Autism-Quotient (AQ) scores and several cognitive measures were obtained for all participants. Results demonstrate that among all measures, only AQ scores were significantly correlated to the performance on the bouba-kiki task in the ASD group...

BACKGROUND: Early predictors of response and remission in pediatric mania are lacking, requiring further study. METHODS: This was a post hoc analysis of a 3-week, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of olanzapine conducted between November 2002 and May 2005 in 161 adolescents aged 13-17 years who were diagnosed with a DSM-IV acute manic or mixed episode of bipolar I disorder. Data from the olanzapine arm were analyzed to investigate the predictive power of early response or early nonresponse (≥25% or < 25% reduction in Young Mania Rating Scale [YMRS] score, respectively) at week 1 for ultimate response or nonresponse (≥ 50% or < 50% reduction in YMRS score, respectively) and for remission (YMRS total score ≤ 12 [standard definition] or ≤ 8 [stringent definition]) at week 3...

Eighty-seven years ago, Köhler reported that the majority of students picked the same answer in a quiz: Which novel word form ('maluma' or 'takete') went best with which abstract line drawing (one curved, one angular). Others have consistently shown the effect in a variety of contexts, with only one reported failure by Rogers and Ross. In the spirit of transparency, we report our own failure in the same journal. In our study, speakers of Syuba, from the Himalaya in Nepal, do not show a preference when matching word forms 'kiki' and 'bubu' to spiky versus curvy shapes...
