BACKGROUND: The main goal of newborn screening (NBS) for sickle cell disease (SCD) is to detect affected neonates so that specific preventive care can be implemented. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) used for NBS has high sensitivity and specificity, but we lack guidelines for quantitative hemoglobin (Hb) fraction interpretation. The purpose of this study was to determine cutoff values to standardize quantitative interpretation in SCD NBS for different clinical situation such as, red blood cell transfusion or beta-thalassemia, which can be real screening pitfalls...

Although one in four women in the United States experience severe intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetimes and are at greater risk for homelessness and housing insecurity than women who have not experienced IPV, the factors increasing the vulnerability of women with an IPV history to housing instability have not been examined. This cross-sectional study utilized baseline data from interviews with 218 IPV-exposed women from diverse ethnoracial backgrounds participating with their children in the Kids' Club and the Mom's Empowerment Program, joint interventions designed to improve outcomes in families who have experienced IPV...

Joint replacement surgery is a standard treatment of advanced osteoarthritis (OA). Since 2000, cobalt-chromium (CoCr) metal-on-metal (MoM) implants were widely used in hip arthroplasties. Some patients developed "adverse reaction to metal debris" (ARMD) around the prosthesis, resulting in a need for revision surgery. In the present study, we addressed the pathogenesis of ARMD by genome-wide expression analysis. Pseudosynovial ARMD tissue was obtained from revision surgery of Articular Surface Replacement (ASR, DePuy, Warsaw, IN, USA) hip arthroplasties...

Adverse Reaction to Metal Debris (ARMD) is a major cause of implant failure leading to revision surgery in patients with metal-on-metal (MoM) hip arthroplasties. However, the pathogenesis and its association to implant wear are poorly understood and previous studies have yielded discrepant results. We sought to investigate the associations between histological findings, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion concentrations and periprosthetic tissue metal concentrations in patients with MoM total hip replacements and hip resurfacings revised for ARMD...

BACKGROUND: Failure to restore femoral offset in metal on polyethylene total hip arthroplasty (THA) causes polyethylene wear and aseptic loosening. To our knowledge, no study to date has investigated the relationship between femoral offset and wear in metal-on-metal (MOM) THA. AIMS: In this study, we investigated the relationship between femoral offset and wear by measuring circulating metal ion levels in MOM THA. METHODS: In this retrospective study, we identified patients who had undergone MOM THA with the ASR XL system (DePuy International Ltd...

Metalimnetic oxygen minimum zones (MOMs) commonly develop during the summer stratified period in freshwater reservoirs because of both natural processes and water quality management. While several previous studies have examined the causes of MOMs, much less is known about their effects, especially on reservoir biogeochemistry. MOMs create distinct redox gradients in the water column which may alter the magnitude and vertical distribution of dissolved methane (CH4 ) and carbon dioxide (CO2 ). The vertical distribution and diffusive efflux of CH4 and CO2 was monitored for two consecutive open-water seasons in a eutrophic reservoir that develops MOMs as a result of the operation of water quality engineering systems...

OBJECTIVE: Mothers of premature infants confront barriers to coming to volume (CTV; ≥500 mL/day mother's own milk [MOM] by postpartum day 14), a strong predictor of continued MOM provision at neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) discharge. We sought to determine concentrations of secretory activation biomarkers (MOM sodium, total protein, lactose, and citrate) during the first 14 postpartum days and to describe relationships among these biomarkers, pumped MOM volume, CTV, and pumping frequency...

Hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis-Dutch type (HCHWA-D) is an early onset hereditary form of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) caused by a point mutation resulting in an amino acid change (NP_000475.1:p.Glu693Gln) in the amyloid precursor protein (APP). Post-mortem frontal and occipital cortical brain tissue from nine patients and nine age-related controls was used for RNA sequencing to identify biological pathways affected in HCHWA-D. Although previous studies indicated that pathology is more severe in the occipital lobe in HCHWA-D compared to the frontal lobe, the current study showed similar changes in gene expression in frontal and occipital cortex and the two brain regions were pooled for further analysis...

Trait stereotypes of men tend to be more fixed and negative than those of women. The current studies test whether stereotypes of men can be shifted through leveraging their social role as fathers. Trait attributes perceived to characterize women and moms were highly redundant, but those of men and dads were less so; moreover, men were perceived more negatively than dads, women, and moms (Study 1). Perceivers for whom the social role father was made salient rated men more similarly to dads, and no less similarly to men, and rated men more positively relative to a control condition (Study 2)...

BACKGROUND: There are four distinguishable types of THA devices in wide use, as defined by the femoral and acetabular bearing surfaces: metal-on-polyethylene (MoP), ceramic-on-polyethylene (CoP), metal-on-metal (MoM), and ceramic-on-ceramic (CoC). Metallic head THAs (MoP and MoM) can potentially induce cardiac toxicity because cobalt species, generated at the head-neck trunnion, and in the case of MoM devices, at the articular surface as well, can be absorbed systemically. However, studies have provided inconsistent results...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The high complexity of pediatric reference ranges across age, sex, and units impairs clinical application and comparability of steroid hormone data, e.g., in congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). We developed a multiples-of-median (MoM) normalization tool to overcome this major drawback in pediatric endocrinology. METHODS: Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry data comprising 10 steroid hormones representing 905 controls (555 males, 350 females, 0 to > 16 years) from 2 previous datasets were MoM transformed across age and sex...

BACKGROUND: Social media are potentially powerful channels for communicating relevant health information in culturally sensitive and influential ways to key audiences. Moreover, these channels hold promise for promoting awareness and knowledge of health risks, prevention, and treatment by utilizing opinion leaders for message dissemination. Despite limited empirical evidence to-date, early promising results suggest that blogs are a form of social media that should be examined as worthy channels for health communication...
