AIM: To explore young women's health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and investigate if menstrual and menarche experiences and objectification predict mental and physical health components of HRQOL. BACKGROUND: Menstruation plays a fundamental role in female biology, in women's relationship to their bodies and consequently in women's health and their HRQOL. DESIGN: Cross-sectional explorative survey design. METHOD: A questionnaire that included the SF-36v2, the Self-Objectification Questionnaire, the Body Surveillance and Body Shame subscales of the Objectified Body Consciousness Scale, the Belief and Attitudes Towards Menstruation Questionnaire (4 subscales), and questions on menarche and menstruation was administered at the end of 2013 to 319 Icelandic women who represented the population by age...

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is influenced by the disease state, associated complications and their management. In patients with liver cirrhosis co-morbidity, severity of liver disease and their complications are likely to affect the QOL. The aim of the study was to determine the factors that are likely to influence the domains of HRQOL using SF-36 in patients with liver cirrhosis. For the study, 149 patients with liver cirrhosis were compared with age-gender matched healthy controls for physical and mental components of SF-36 score and the effects of age, co-morbidity severity of liver disease and complications of liver cirrhosis on HRQOL were assessed using the same questionnaire...

OBJECTIVE: The considerable heterogeneity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) related fatigue is the greatest challenge to determining pathogenesis. The identification of homogenous sub-types of severe fatigue would inform the design and analysis of experiments seeking to characterise the likely numerous causal pathways which underpin the symptom. This study aimed to identify and validate such fatigue sub-types in patients with RA. METHODS: Data were obtained from patients recruited to the British Society for Rheumatology Biologics register for RA, as either receiving traditional Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARD cohort, n=522) or commencing anti-TNF therapy (anti-TNF cohort, n=3909)...
