Background: Occupational and environmental airborne asbestos concentrations are too low and variable for lifetime exposures to be estimated reliably, and building workers and occupants may suffer higher exposure when asbestos in older buildings is disturbed or removed. Mesothelioma risks from current asbestos exposures are therefore not known. Methods: We interviewed and measured asbestos levels in lung samples from 257 patients treated for pneumothorax and 262 with resected lung cancer, recruited in England and Wales...

International guidelines recommend assessing women's satisfaction with breast cancer screening programmes; however, validated tools are needed. A systematic review to identify and evaluate the quality of validated instruments for screening satisfaction, from 01/1965 until 11/2017 was performed. From 3283 individual citations, six instruments were identified. Evaluation of the MammoGraphy Questionnaire using the COSMIN checklist resulted in 'good' to 'excellent' scores in most assessed domains, while the other tools were mostly 'poor'/'fair' quality or did not provide enough information for assessment...

This article explores the scope of 'religion-psy dialogue' in the mid-twentieth century, via a case study from Japan: Kosawa Heisaku, a Buddhist psychoanalyst based in Tokyo. By putting this case study in brief comparative perspective, with the conversation that took place in 1965 between Paul Tillich and Carl Rogers, the article discusses both the promise and the pitfalls of the modern and contemporary world of 'religion-psy dialogue', alongside the means by which specialists in a variety of fields might investigate and hold it to account...

The field of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) owes its inception to the concept of gate control theory (GCT), put forth by Wall and Melzack in their landmark 1965 paper, which proposed that "control of pain may be achieved by selectively activating the large, rapidly conducting fibers". The first reported clinical application of dorsal column stimulation came 2 years later, and the field has gradually expanded ever since. Today, an estimated 50,000 spinal cord neurostimulators are implanted annually...

Membrane proteins interact with a myriad of lipid species in the biological membrane, leading to a bewildering number of possible protein-lipid assemblies. Despite this inherent complexity, the identification of specific protein-lipid interactions and the crucial role of lipids in the folding, structure, and function of membrane proteins is emerging from an increasing number of reports. Fundamental questions remain, however, regarding the ability of specific lipid binding events to membrane proteins to alter remote binding sites for lipids of a different type, a property referred to as allostery [Monod J, Wyman J, Changeux JP (1965) J Mol Biol 12:88-118]...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) was first described by the French pathologist Paul Destombes in 1965. It frequently affects children or young adults and is characterized by the presence of large histiocytes with emperipolesis. More than 50 years after this first description, the pathogenesis of this rare disease is still poorly understood. The revised classification of histiocytoses published in 2016 identified various forms of RDD, from familial RDD to IgG4-associated RDD. Almost 90% of the patients with RDD have cervical lymph nodes involvement although all the organs may virtually be involved...

Screening for Hepatitis C virus (HCV) was recommended in 2012 by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for the population born between 1946-1965. Reminder systems are effective at promoting HCV screening, but the yield of positive tests among various population subgroups and the linkage to specialty HCV treatment is not well understood. We sought to determine: 1) the effect of the CDC recommendation alone, and the effect of an EMR reminder on the proportion of the population screened; 2) the yield of positive HCV tests as screening strategies have evolved, and according to a patient's history of serum aminotransferase testing; 3) the proportion of positive cases followed-up for HCV treatment...

Chlorophyll a is the most commonly used indicator of phytoplankton biomass in the marine environment. It is relatively simple and cost effective to measure when compared to phytoplankton abundance and is thus routinely included in many surveys. Here we collate 173, 333 records of chlorophyll a collected since 1965 from Australian waters gathered from researchers on regular coastal monitoring surveys and ocean voyages into a single repository. This dataset includes the chlorophyll a values as measured from samples analysed using spectrophotometry, fluorometry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)...
