Electronic address:

Ten-eleven translocation protein (TET) 1 plays a key role in control of DNA demethylation and thereby of gene expression. Dysregulation of these processes leads to serious pathological states such as oncological and neurodegenerative ones and thus TET 1 targeting is highly requested. Therefore, in this work, we examined the ability of hydrazones (acyl-, aroyl- and heterocyclic hydrazones) to inhibit the TET 1 protein and its mechanism of action. Read More

An exponential effect persistence model for intensive longitudinal data.

Psychol Methods 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

RAND Corporation.

We develop an effect persistence model for intensive longitudinal data under a general assumption of an exponential loss of association between exposure and outcome over time. The working model proposed may be useful for understanding the complexity of phenomena for which subjects can be repeatedly exposed to an intervention or a naturally occurring event, while, the effect of any one exposure is expected to diminish over time. Under the main assumption, we specify a semilinear model with extensions to generalized linear models. Read More

Proximal predictors of gun violence among adolescent males involved in crime.

Law Hum Behav 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

School of Criminology & Criminal Justice, Arizona State University.

The growing public health and legal concerns regarding gun violence has led to a call for research that investigates risk factors for gun violence across a variety of domains. Individual and sociocontextual risk factors have been associated with violence more broadly, and in some instances gun-carrying, however no prior research has investigated the role of these factors in explaining gun violence using longitudinal data. The current study utilized a subsample (N = 161) from the Pathways to Desistance Study, which is a longitudinal sample of serious adolescent offenders to evaluate interindividual and intraindividual differences in relevant risk factors of gun violence.

Female Sex and Longer Fusion Constructs Significantly Increase the Risk of Total Hip Arthroplasty Following Spinal Fusion.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2019 Apr;101(8):675-681

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, UC Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, California.

Background: Previous studies have noted the progression of arthritis due to increased forces in articular structures adjacent to a fused joint. It is unknown whether spinal fusion generates increased forces at the hip joint causing progression to arthritis leading to total hip arthroplasty (THA). We sought to determine (1) is there a relationship between spinal fusion and THA, (2) what are risk factors for subsequent THA, and (3) is there a time interval from spinal fusion to THA?

Methods: A large patient discharge dataset was utilized to evaluate all patients who underwent spinal fusion and subsequent THA in California from 2004 through 2013. Read More
