Background: Immigrants comprise 16.8% of the population in Norway and meet General Practitioners (GPs) as their first point of contact with most health care services as do others in Norway. While Norwegian GPs are not trained in cultural competence, little is known about the extent to which they see good care for immigrants as relying on specific strategies. Objectives: To explore the thoughts of GPs in Norway about strategies they might use with immigrant patients...

In this article, we describe ethical tensions we have faced in the context of our work as intervention scientists, where we aim to promote social justice and change systems that impact girls involved in the juvenile legal system. These ethical tensions are, at their core, about resisting collusion with systems of control while simultaneously collaborating with them. Over the course of designing and implementing a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of an ecological advocacy intervention for girls, called ROSES, ethical paradoxes crystalized and prompted us to engage in critical reflection and action toward the aim of moving away from conducting research on legal-system-involved girls and moving toward a more democratic, participatory process of inquiry with girls...

PURPOSE: Despite a growing understanding of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and its determinants in hemodialysis (HD) patients, little is known about the effects and interrelationships concerning the perception of autonomy support and basic need satisfaction of HD patients on their HRQOL. Based on self-determination theory (SDT), this study examines whether HD patients' perceived autonomy support from health care practitioners (physicians and nurses) relates to the satisfaction of HD patients' basic needs and in turn influences their HRQOL...

BACKGROUND: The number of clinical trials including older patients, and particularly patients with cognitive impairment, is increasing. While statutory provisions exist to make sure that the capacity to consent is assessed systematically for each patient, many gray areas remain with regard to how this assessment is made or should be made in the routine practice of clinical research. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this review was to draw up an inventory of assessment tools evaluating older patients' capacity to consent specifically applicable to clinical research, which could be used in routine practice...

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) can be C-terminally extended without significant affinity loss for the PTH1 receptor (PTHR1). We developed fusion protein ligands with enzymatic activity to probe PTHR1s at the cell surface. Two fusion proteins were generated by linking PTH to the N-terminus of either horseradish peroxidase (PTH-HRP) or the genetically modified soybean peroxidase APEX2 (PTH-APEX2). Alternatively, myc-tagged PTH (PTH-myc) was combined with antibodies, some of which HRP-conjugated, in the extracellular fluid...

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: In recent years, there has been increased recognition in Canada of the need to strengthen mental health services in primary health care (PHC). Collaborative models, including partnerships between PHC and specialized mental health care providers, have emerged as effective ways for improving access to mental health care and strengthening clinical capacity. Primary health care physicians and other health professionals are well positioned to facilitate the early detection of mental disorders and provide appropriate treatment and follow-up care, helping to tackle stigma toward mental health problems in the process...

BACKGROUND: Physicians will be called upon to care for patients who bear the burden of disease from the impact of climate change and ecologically irresponsible practices which harm ecosystems and contribute to climate change. However, physicians must recognize the connection between the climate, ecosystems, sustainability, and health and their responsibility and capacity in changing the status quo. Sustainable healthcare education (SHE), defined as education about the impact of climate change and ecosystem alterations on health and the impact of the healthcare industry on the aforementioned, is vital to prevention of adverse health outcomes due to the changing climate and environment...

The surge in luteinizing hormone (LH) in preovulatory ovarian follicles triggers the resumption of oocyte meiosis accompanied by expansion of surrounding cumulus cells and ovulation of cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) into the oviduct. Over the last 15 years, substantial progress has been made in elucidating the key pathways by which the LH signal spreads within the preovulatory follicle and in identifying the molecules responsible for maintaining oocyte arrest and meiosis resumption. It is now clear that the adenylcyclase-mediated rise in intracellular cAMP leads to activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) network in granulosa and cumulus cells...

Platelets interact with tumor cells and promote metastasis. The importance of platelets in post-transplant hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence is unclear. Thus, we aimed to evaluate the association between preoperative platelet count and HCC recurrence after living donor liver transplantation. Of 359 recipients of livers from living donors for HCC, 209 of 240 patients who had preoperative platelet count ≤75 × 10(9) /L were matched with 97 of 119 patients who had preoperative platelet count >75 × 10(9) /L using propensity score matching, with an unfixed matching ratio based on factors such as tumor biology...

Spinel Li4 Ti5 O12 , known as a zero-strain material, is capable to be a competent anode material for promising applications in state-of-art electrochemical energy storage devices (EESDs). Compared with commercial graphite, spinel Li4 Ti5 O12 offers a high operating potential of ∼1.55 V vs Li/Li(+) , negligible volume expansion during Li(+) intercalation process and excellent thermal stability, leading to high safety and favorable cyclability. Despite the merits of Li4 Ti5 O12 been presented, there still remains the issue of Li4 Ti5 O12 suffering from poor electronic conductivity, manifesting disadvantageous rate performance...

Organ-transplant recipients (OTR) have a 100-fold increased risk of cutaneous squamous-cell carcinoma (cSCC). We prospectively evaluated the association between beta-genus human-papillomaviruses (betaPV) and keratinocyte carcinoma in OTR. Two OTR cohorts without cSCC were assembled: cohort 1 transplanted in 2003-2006 (n=274) and cohort 2 in 1986-2002 (n=352). Participants were followed until death or cessation of follow-up in 2016. BetaPV infection was assessed in eyebrow hairs using PCR-based methods. BetaPV IgG seroresponses were determined by multiplex serology...

Diphenyl ether offers competing docking sites for methanol: the ether oxygen as a common hydrogen bond acceptor and the pi-system of each phenyl ring allowing for OH-pi interactions driven by electrostatic, induction and dispersion forces. Based on investigations in the electronic ground state (S0) we present a detailed study on the electronically excited state (S1) and the ionic ground state (D0), in which an impact on the structural preference is expected compared to the S0 state. Dispersion forces in the electronically excited state are analyzed by comparing the computed binding energies at the coupled-cluster-singles and approximate coupled-cluster-singles-doubles levels of theory (CC2 approximation)...

OBJECTIVE: Digit ratio (2D:4D) is a negative correlate of sports performance, although this relationship may be weak in open-skill sports such as basketball. The primary aim was to quantify relationships between 2D:4D and game-related statistics in semi-professional female basketball players. The secondary aim was to quantify the differences in mean 2D:4Ds between players based on their position in the starting lineup. METHODS: Using a cross-sectional design, 64 female basketball players who competed in the South Australian Premier League were measured in-season for height, mass, and 2D:4D, with game-related statistics collected end-season...

We used Chinese prenominal relative clauses (RCs) to test the predictions of two competing accounts of sentence comprehension difficulty: the experience-based account of Levy () and the Dependency Locality Theory (DLT; Gibson, ). Given that in Chinese RCs, a classifier and/or a passive marker BEI can be added to the sentence-initial position, we manipulated the presence/absence of classifiers and the presence/absence of BEI, such that BEI sentences were passivized subject-extracted RCs, and no-BEI sentences were standard object-extracted RCs...

Surveillance for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been recommended in patients with cirrhosis. In this work, we examine the extent to which the competing risk of hepatic decompensation influences the benefit of HCC surveillance, by investigating the impact of availability of liver transplantation (LTx) and rate of progression of hepatic decompensation on survival gain from HCC surveillance. A multistate Markov model was constructed simulating a cohort of 50-year old patients with compensated cirrhosis. The primary outcome of interest was all-cause and HCC-specific mortality...

Beginning parenting programs in the prenatal and early postnatal periods have a large potential for impact on later child and maternal outcomes. Home-based parenting programs, such as the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), have been established to help address this need. Program reach and impact is dependent on successful engagement of expecting mothers with significant risks; however, NFP attrition rates remain high. The current study qualitatively examined engagement and attrition from the perspectives of NFP nurses and mothers in order to identify mechanisms that enhance service engagement...
