Genetic Polymorphisms of CCDC26 rs891835, rs6470745, and rs55705857 in Glioma Risk: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Biochem Genet 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Departamento de Biología Molecular, Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chávez, Ciudad de México, Mexico.

A genetic component is accepted in the etiology of the glioma. Evidence from candidate genes studies and GWAS reveal that CCDC26 gene could increase the risk of glioma. We performed a systematic review and up-to-date meta-analysis to explore if polymorphisms of CCDC26 gene (rs891835, rs6470745, and rs55705857) may be a susceptibility factor in developing glioma.

[Follow-up recommendations for the late preterm infant].

An Pediatr (Barc) 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Grupo SEN34-36/ACUNA, Sociedad Española de Neonatología, España; Servicio de Pediatría-Neonatología, SCIAS, Hospital Barcelona, Barcelona, España.

The population of late preterm infants (PT), those born between 34+0 and 36+6 weeks of gestation, accounts for 70-74% of all premature infants, and is not specifically included in most of the follow-up protocols for preterm infants. For many years, PTs have been handled as if they were term newborns, which has led to a limited knowledge of their outcome in the medium and long term. Their neonatal morbidity is associated with a higher incidence of postnatal complications, with an increased rate of hospital re-admissions due to malnutrition, hyperbilirubinaemia, and respiratory problems, when compared to term infants.

[Functional adaptation and disorders of the autistic spectrum].

Medicina (B Aires) 2019 ;79 Suppl 1:10-15

IGAIN, Instituto Global de Atención Integral al Neurodesarrollo, Barcelona, España.

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are neurodevelopmental disorders that affect social communication and present stereotyped behaviors; 30% of the cases diagnosed with ASD have intellectual disability and 2/3 an intellectual capacity within the norm. Although cognitive ability is related to better functional adaptation, however, the vast majority of people with ASD in adulthood have limited autonomy and are dependent on adults. In this article we review the concept of functional adaptation, its relationship with ASD, factors that influence a better functional adaptation, how to evaluate it and implications for treatment.

Salud Publica Mex 2018 Nov-Dic;60(6):703-712

Center for Infection in Cancer Research, Moffitt Cancer Center.Tampa, FL, USA.

Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of a combined strategy of human papillomavirus virus (HPV) vaccination and high-risk HPV screening to reduce the occurrence of anogenital and oropharyngeal neoplasms among men who have sex with men, people with HIV, homeless people, transgender women, female sex workers and rape victims.

Materials And Methods: This mixed methods study evaluates the effectiveness of a combined vaccination-screening strategy to reduce HPV prevalence/incidence and occurrence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasms grade 2+ and/or anal intraepithelial neoplasms grade 2+, using Kaplan-Meier. The time-to-event method will evaluate time from positive results for specific anogenital HPV to incidence of anogenital lesions containing that HPV type. Read More

The family doctor incorporates clinical ultrasound as an exploration and diagnosis technique in his care activity, the same way as the rest of the specialists. His generalist role makes him a potential user of all possible applications of this technique, which can provide a high impact on his ability to manage, focus and solve a large number of clinical situations.

Numbers that Matter: Right to Health and Peruvian Maternal Strategies.

Med Anthropol 2019 Jan 18:1-15. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

a Department of Applied Health Science , School of Public Health, Indiana University , Bloomington , Indiana , USA.

Strategies of Intercultural Birthing and Maternal Waiting Houses were purported to reduce maternal deaths, while extending the right to health to marginalized indigenous women. Based on 17 months of field research in Peru, I argue that the narrow focus on achieving "good numbers" creates and sustains coercive modes of strategy applications. Read More
