Seroepidemiological studies aim to understand population-level exposure and immunity to infectious diseases. Their results are normally presented as binary outcomes describing the presence or absence of pathogen-specific antibody, despite the fact that many assays measure continuous quantities. A population's natural distribution of antibody titers to an endemic infectious disease may include information on multiple serological states - naiveté, recent infection, non-recent infection, childhood infection - depending on the disease in question and the acquisition and waning patterns of immunity...

INTRODUCTION: Postpartum depression (PPD) among women is a common mental health concern. It occurs at a time of major life change, coupled with the increased responsibilities associated with the care of a newborn infant. In Vietnam, the prevalence of depressive symptoms after giving birth has not been fully investigated. Research in the Northern provinces, in Ho Chi Minh City, and in Hue suggests postnatal depressive symptoms among women are common. This research aims to (1) estimate the prevalence of PPD symptoms among married women in one Vietnam city (Danang) and (2) identify the social and personal factors associated with postpartum depressive symptoms...

In Vietnam, especially central Vietnam, patients with fascioliasis are increasingly being reported. Since the fascioliasis is zoonotic, survey on the cattle fascioliasis should be informative for the control of human fascioliasis. In this study, the prevalence of cattle fascioliasis as well as the density of the intermediate host snails, Lymnaea swinhoei and L. viridis, were studied in Thua Thien Hue (TTH) province during 2014-2015. A total of 572 cattle feces were examined from 27 communes in 9 districts. Fasciola eggs were detected in cattle from 24 communes with an average prevalence of 23...

In patients with complete venous occlusion requiring venous access for cardiac device lead placement, venous revascularization is a viable option. A percutaneous approach to venous revascularization has gained popularity. This method reduces patient exposure to more invasive therapies. In this case series, we describe two cases of a total venous occlusion that were successfully revascularized using a "wire externalization" technique. This technique requires the use of antegrade and retrograde access.

Despite improvements in guidewire technologies, the traditional antegrade wire escalation approach to chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization is successful in only 60-80% of selected cases. In particular, long, calcified, and tortuous occlusions are less successfully approached with a true-to-true lumen approach. Frequently, the guidewire tracks into the subadventitial space, with no guarantee of distal re-entry into the true lumen. The ability to manage the subadventitial space has been a key step in the tremendous improvement in success rates of contemporary CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), whether operating antegradely or retrogradely...

Microemulsion has the potentials to enhance dissolution as well as facilitate absorption and permeation of poorly water-soluble drugs through biological membranes. However, its application to govern a controlled release buccal delivery for local treatment has not been discovered. The aim of this study is to develop microemulsion-based mucoadhesive wafers for buccal delivery based on an incorporation of the microemulsion with mucoadhesive agents and mannitol. Ratio of oil to surfactant to water in the microemulsion significantly impacted quality of the wafers...

The subtle energetic differences underpinning adjacent lanthanide discrimination are explored with diglycolamide ligands. Our approach converges liquid-liquid extraction experiments with solution-phase X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and density functional theory (DFT) simulations, spanning the lanthanide series. The homoleptic [(DGA)3Ln](3+) complex was confirmed in the organic extractive solution by XAS, and this was modeled using DFT. An interplay between steric strain and coordination energies apparently gives rise to a nonlinear trend in discriminatory lanthanide ion complexation across the series...

Neurodegenerative disorders (NDs) are typically referred to Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and prion disease. These are commonly debilitating and, unfortunately, have few therapeutic options. One of the main difficulties in fighting against NDs is to overcome the shielding of blood-brain barrier (BBB), which greatly limits the penetration of various therapeutic drugs, which sometimes leads to severe side effects. Nanotechnology, by engineering materials of a size scale usually within 1-100 nm, fortunately offers an alternative approach for novel, promising and innovative solutions...

Successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) has been associated with significant clinical benefits, but remains technically demanding. Failure to cross the CTO with a guidewire is the most common cause of CTO PCI failure. CTO crossing can be achieved in the antegrade or retrograde direction and can be accomplished by maintaining true lumen position throughout or via subintimal dissection/reentry techniques. A procedural plan should be created prior to the procedure through careful angiographic review of four key parameters: (a) morphology of the proximal occlusion cap; (b) length of the occlusion; (c) quality of the distal vessel and presence of bifurcation at the distal cap; and (d) suitability of collateral circulation for retrograde crossing...
