BACKGROUND: Food insecurity is a very common problem in developing countries particularly among the poorer households. Very few studies have tested the association between adult smoking and food insecurity. METHODS: We analysed the data from a nationally representative sample of 10,826 households in which women and men (in a sub sample of 4121 households) aged 15-49 years were interviewed in Nepal Demographic and Health Survey 2011. Data from households in which both men and women were interviewed were analysed for association of household food insecurity access score (HFIAS), with tobacco use among men and women, socio-demographic and spatial factors...

BACKGROUND DATA: Patients with severe acute liver failure (ALF) have extreme physiologic dysfunction and often die if transplantation is not immediately available. Patients may be supported with MARS (Baxter International Inc., Deerfield, IL) until transplantation or spontaneous recovery occurs. We present the largest series in the United States of MARS therapy as temporary hepatic replacement for ALF. METHODS: MARS was used to support patients with severe liver trauma (SLT), in ALF patients as a bridge to transplantation (BTT), and as definitive therapy for toxic ingestion or idiopathic liver failure (DT) in a level 1 trauma center and large transplant center...

Purpose Worldwide, in recent years, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) has developed into a very successful therapy for glaucoma. Material and Methods The article provides a review of the literature from PubMed and clinical experience. Results SLT is equally efficacious to argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT) and to a first-line glaucoma medication. SLT can be used in most common forms of open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. In contrast to ALT, SLT is repeatable and requires much less energy. SLT has been reported to be also successful in some rare forms of ocular hypertension/glaucoma...
