Midwifery students feel unprepared to deal with commonly encountered emergencies, such as neonatal resuscitation. Clinical simulation of emergencies may provide a safe forum for students to develop necessary skills. A simulation exercise, for neonatal resuscitation, was developed and evaluated using qualitative methods. Pre and post-simulation questions focussed on student confidence and knowledge of resuscitation. Data were analysed using a thematic analysis approach. Pre-simulation questions revealed that most students considered themselves not very confident/unsure about their level of confidence in undertaking neonatal resuscitation...

BACKGROUND: The mean population mood has been demonstrated to strongly correlate with the prevalence of depression in European populations. Mean population mood has, therefore, been proposed as both a metric to measure the impact of population-level interventions to prevent depression and a target for public health policy. AIM: To demonstrate the relationship between mean population mood and the prevalence of depression using Australian data in order to broaden the applicability of this finding to the Australian population...

Currently, 1% of the United States population holds a diagnosis for celiac disease (CD), however, a more recently recognized and possibly related condition, "non-celiac gluten sensitivity" (NCGS) has been suggested to affect up to 6% of the United States public. While reliable clinical tests for CD exist, diagnosing individuals affected by NCGS is still complicated by the lack of reliable biomarkers and reliance upon a broad set of intestinal and extra intestinal symptoms possibly provoked by gluten. NCGS has been proposed to exhibit an innate immune response activated by gluten and several other wheat proteins...

Effort-based decision-making paradigms are increasingly utilized to gain insight into the nature of motivation deficits. Research has shown associations between effort-based decision making and experiential negative symptoms; however, the associations are not consistent. The current study had two primary goals. First, we aimed to replicate previous findings of a deficit in effort-based decision making among individuals with schizophrenia on a test of cognitive effort. Second, in a large sample combined from the current and a previous study, we sought to examine the association between negative symptoms and effort by including the related construct of defeatist beliefs...

Constitutional mismatch repair deficiency (CMMRD) is a rare and often under-recognized tumour predisposition syndrome, presenting with both extracranial and malignant brain tumours that occur in children and/or young adults [1]. The genetic defects underlying this disease are biallelic germline mutations in one of the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes leading to a constitutional DNA repair defect that causes a cancer predisposition syndrome with early onset [2]. This mechanism is different from Lynch syndrome (LS) where a heterozygous germline loss-of-function mutation is observed and the patients are more prone to develop colon and genitourinary cancers as adults [1]...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes and vice versa, and a growing body of evidence indicates that these diseases are connected both at epidemiological, clinical and molecular levels. Recent studies have begun to reveal common pathogenic mechanisms shared by AD and type 2 diabetes. Impaired neuronal insulin signaling and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress are present in animal models of AD, similar to observations in peripheral tissue in T2D. These findings shed light into novel diabetes-related mechanisms leading to brain dysfunction in AD...

BACKGROUND: Functional assessment of non-infarct-related artery lesions during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) might be useful to avoid revascularization of nonsignificant stenosis and staged procedures, thus reducing hospital stay. We aimed to assess the diagnostic performance of instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR) as compared with fractional flow reserve (FFR) in this setting. METHODS: In the WAVE study, a prospective, observational, single-center registry (NCT02869906), paired iFR and FFR measurements were performed at the level of non-IRA lesions in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction both during primary PCI and during staged procedures (5-8 days after)...

Melanotic neuroectodermal tumour of infancy is an uncommon pigmented neoplasm of neural crest origin. It was first described in 1918 by Krompecher, known as congenital melanocarcinoma at that time. Although it is generally agreed upon that it is a benign entity, it is locally aggressive and has a significant recurrent risk, reported to be between 10-15%. There have also been prior reports of malignant behaviour in these tumours, although extremely rare. The majority of cases of this tumour (about 70%) arise from the maxilla and its occurrence in the cranial vault represents approximately 15...

Membrane lipid composition varies greatly within submembrane compartments, different organelle membranes, and also between cells of different cell stage, cell and tissue types, and organisms. Environmental factors (such as diet) also influence membrane composition. The membrane lipid composition is tightly regulated by the cell, maintaining a homeostasis that, if disrupted, can impair cell function and lead to disease. This is especially pronounced in the brain, where defects in lipid regulation are linked to various neurological diseases...
