It is estimated that four million people in Germany are living with a rare disease; in the EU, approximately 30 million people are affected. All rare diseases are chronic, linked to invalidity and/or restricted life expectancy, and their symptoms are often already manifest in childhood. Some 80% of rare diseases are genetically determined; they can rarely be cured. Furthermore, the pathogenesis of many rare diseases is unknown.In a move to ameliorate the situation of persons with rare diseases, the National Action League for People with Rare Diseases (NAMSE) published the National Plan of Action for People with Rare Diseases containing 52 measures that aim to achieve the desired improvements...

REVIEW
Y Duan, Z Xie, F Dong, Z Wu, Z Lin, N Sun, J Xu
To summarise evidence about the effectiveness of home blood pressure telemonitoring (HBPT) and identify the key components of intervention. We comprehensively searched PubMed, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library for relevant studies. The authors were contacted for additional information. Two authors independently extracted the data and assessed the risk of bias. 46 randomised controlled trials including a total of 13 875 cases were identified. Compared with usual care, HBPT improved office systolic blood pressure (BP) and diastolic BP by 3...

WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of diabetic nephropathy continues to rise and it remains a strong predictor of morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients. Patients diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy are actively excluded from most trials involving diabetic medications and it is important to understand the prescription patterns in this subset of patients with diabetes. METHODS: Using the IMS Health's National Disease and Therapeutic Index, we analysed the medication prescription patterns for six classes of medications from 2010 to 2014 among patients, 35 years or older, with diabetic nephropathy...

The aim of the present research is to verify the immune status against tetanus in students and workers exposed to risk and to ascertain whether a decennial booster is necessary. Antibodies against tetanus were measured in 1433 workers and students of Padua University (Italy). The enrolment criterion was the ability to provide a booklet of vaccinations released by a public health office. The influence of age, gender, the number of vaccine doses, and the interval since the last dose was determined. Ten years after the last dose, the majority of subjects (95·0%) displayed an antibody titre above the protective level (⩾0·10 IU/ml), and half of these (49·1%) had a long-term protective level (⩾1·0 IU/ml)...

BACKGROUND: Optimal utilisation of the out-of-hours primary care (OOH-PC) services remains a concern in public health policy. We need more knowledge on potentially avoidable contacts. This study examines the frequency of medically assessed inappropriate OOH-PC calls from adults, explores factors associated with such assessment, and examines the relation to patient-assessed severity of health problem and fulfilment of expectations. METHODS: We performed secondary analyses of data from a large cross-sectional survey on contacts to Danish OOH-PC...

Michiel J Bos, Sylvia Buis
PURPOSE: Automated office blood pressure monitoring during 30 minutes (OBP30) may reduce overtreatment of patients with white-coat hypertension in primary health care. OBP30 results approximate those of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, but OBP30 is much more convenient. In this study, we compared OBP30 with routine office blood pressure (OBP) readings for different indications in primary care and evaluated how OBP30 influenced the medication prescribing of family physicians. METHODS: All consecutive patients who underwent OBP30 for medical reasons over a 6-month period in a single primary health care center in the Netherlands were enrolled...

Virtual reality (VR) can be used in the treatment of gambling disorder to provide emotionally charged contexts (e.g., induce cravings) where patients can practice cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) techniques in the safety of the therapist's office. This raises practical questions, such as whether the cravings are sufficient to be clinically useful but also manageable enough to remain clinically safe. Pilot data are also needed to test the development of a treatment manual and prepare large randomized control trials...

Mobile technology has changed the way we live and operate, with co-working, flexible spaces and home office solutions that offer us the freedom to work when and where we choose. However, when disaster strikes the workplace, people are often the last to be considered in the recovery process. This paper examines strategies for businesses and their employees to continue working after a disaster strikes. It explores the trends in the market, the benefits and drawbacks of different approaches and the attitudes of continuity experts and small business owners who have the responsibility to ensure that businesses, and people, continue to function, even when their main place of work is inaccessible...

Grassroots non-governmental organizations (NGOs) played pivotal roles in HIV prevention among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China. Their governance and sustainability issues were under-studied. This nation-wide study surveyed leaders of 202 of the HIV related NGOs in China.58.4% of the leaders believed that their NGO would last for ≤5 years; which was negatively associated with perceived good relationship with CDC. 65.3% mentioned ≥3 non-sustainability issues; associated factors included perceived inadequacies in prevention skills, management skills, policy support, technical support, operational support, and CDC's support; a reverse association was found for frequent collaboration with organizations in China...

The Malawian Farm Input Subsidy Programme (FISP) has received praise as a proactive policy that has transformed the nation's food security, yet irreconcilable differences exist between maize production estimates distributed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Malawi Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MoAFS) and the National Statistical Office (NSO) of Malawi. These differences illuminate yield-reporting deficiencies and the value that alternative, politically unbiased yield estimates could play in understanding policy impacts...

The use of low-dose epinephrine in hand surgery has made it possible to perform a wide range of surgical procedures in the office setting. Low-dose epinephrine use is safe, and its vasoconstrictive effects are reversible with phentolamine. In this report, we present late-onset finger ischemia beginning 3 hours after an ipsilateral carpal tunnel and A1 pulley release of the middle finger anesthetized with local anesthetic and low-dose epinephrine (1:100,000). Finger ischemia lasted 14 hours until rescued with phentolamine injection...
