Quality of life of cancer patients at palliative care units in developing countries: systematic review of the published literature.

Qual Life Res 2021 Feb 18;30(2):315-343. Epub 2020 Sep 18.

Institute for Medical Epidemiology, Biometrics and Informatics (IMEBI), Interdisciplinary Center for Health Sciences, Medical School of the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Magdeburger Strasse 8, 06097, Halle (Saale), Germany.

Purpose: This systematic review aims to summarize factors that influence the quality of life (QOL) of advanced cancer patients in palliative care (PC) in developing countries. Understanding this context in developing countries milieu is necessary; however, this outcome is rarely reported.

Methods: Following the PRISMA guidelines, the electronic databases MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, and Web of Science were systematically searched using the search terms: QOL, cancer, PC, and names of all developing countries. Read More

Malaria remains a major public health threat in tropical and subtropical regions across the world. Even though less than 1% of malaria infections are fatal, this leads to about 430,000 deaths per year, predominantly in young children in sub-Saharan Africa. Therefore, it is imperative to understand why a subset of infected individuals develop severe syndromes and some of them die and what differentiates these cases from the majority that recovers.

Exploring the Use of Molecular Biomarkers for Precision Medicine in Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

Mol Diagn Ther 2018 06;22(3):315-343

Department of Ophthalmology, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University Medical Centre, Philips van Leydenlaan 15, 6525 EX, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Precision medicine aims to improve patient care by adjusting medication to each patient's individual needs. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a heterogeneous eye disease in which several pathways are involved, and the risk factors driving the disease differ per patient. As a consequence, precision medicine holds promise for improved management of this disease, which is nowadays a main cause of vision loss in the elderly. Read More

Progress in Deciphering the Controls on the Geochemistry of Fluids in Seafloor Hydrothermal Systems.

Ann Rev Mar Sci 2018 01 30;10:315-343. Epub 2017 Aug 30.

Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, Massachusetts 02543.

Over the last four decades, more than 500 sites of seafloor hydrothermal venting have been identified in a range of tectonic environments. These vents represent the seafloor manifestation of hydrothermal convection of seawater through the permeable oceanic basement that is driven by a subsurface heat source. Hydrothermal circulation has fundamental effects on the transfer of heat and mass from the lithosphere to the hydrosphere, the composition of seawater, the physical and chemical properties of the oceanic basement, and vent ecosystems at and below the seafloor.
