Objective: To systematically review literature reporting interventions for weight change following paediatric acquired brain injury (ABI).

Method: A systematic search of the literature was conducted using advanced search techniques. The retrieval identified 1562 papers, of which 30 were relevant. The total number of paediatric participants was 759.

Results: There is a paucity of higher quality evidence to support the use of weight change interventions following paediatric ABI. Substantial variation in screening, outcome measures, intervention, and reporting were demonstrated. Some support was found for the use of hypothalamic-sparing surgery as a method to prevent obesity following craniopharyngioma resection.

Interpretation: There is a need for further study in this area to inform clinical and research practice; recommendations are given.

DNA methylation changes in endometrium and correlation with gene expression during the transition from pre-receptive to receptive phase.

Sci Rep 2017 Jun 20;7(1):3916. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Competence Centre on Health Technologies, Tartu, Estonia.

The inner uterine lining (endometrium) is a unique tissue going through remarkable changes each menstrual cycle. Endometrium has its characteristic DNA methylation profile, although not much is known about the endometrial methylome changes throughout the menstrual cycle. The impact of methylome changes on gene expression and thereby on the function of the tissue, including establishing receptivity to implanting embryo, is also unclear. Read More

Formaldehyde induces toxicity in mouse bone marrow and hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells and enhances benzene-induced adverse effects.

Arch Toxicol 2017 Feb 23;91(2):921-933. Epub 2016 Jun 23.

Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, CA, 94720, USA.

Formaldehyde (FA) is a human leukemogen and is hematotoxic in human and mouse. The biological plausibility of FA-induced leukemia is controversial because few studies have reported FA-induced bone marrow (BM) toxicity, and none have reported BM stem/progenitor cell toxicity. We sought to comprehensively examine FA hematoxicity in vivo in mouse peripheral blood, BM, spleen and myeloid progenitors. Read More

Mortality from external causes in Africa and Asia: evidence from INDEPTH Health and Demographic Surveillance System Sites.

Glob Health Action 2014 29;7:25366. Epub 2014 Oct 29.

MRC/Wits Rural Public Health and Health Transitions Research Unit (Agincourt), School of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa; WHO Collaborating Centre for Verbal Autopsy, Umeå Centre for Global Health Research, Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden.

Background: Mortality from external causes, of all kinds, is an important component of overall mortality on a global basis. However, these deaths, like others in Africa and Asia, are often not counted or documented on an individual basis. Overviews of the state of external cause mortality in Africa and Asia are therefore based on uncertain information. Read More

Background: Ectopic pregnancy (EP) is a medical-surgical emergency. Rupture of an ectopic pregnancy is a serious complication and may develop severe life-threatening to the patient.

Aim: To determine correlation between vital signs and hemoperitoneum in ruptured ectopic pregnancy and the association between abnormal vital signs and tubal rupture. Read More

Electrocoagulation removal of Cr(VI) from simulated wastewater using response surface methodology.

J Hazard Mater 2009 Dec 25;172(2-3):839-46. Epub 2009 Jul 25.

Department of Botanical & Environmental Sciences, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar 143005, India.

The present study envisages the performance of a laboratory scale electrocoagulation system for the removal of Cr(VI) from 100 mg l(-1) solution using Al-Al electrodes with an effective surface area of 100 cm(2), and placed 15 mm apart. The interaction between voltage x time, and amperage x time best explained the Cr(VI) reduction efficiency with the coefficient of determination (R(2)) being 0.8873 and 0. Read More
