    Job stress models for predicting burnout syndrome: a review.
    Ann Ist Super Sanita 2016 Jul-Sep;52(3):443-456
    Servizio Sanitario della Polizia di Stato, Ministero dell'Interno, Rome, Italy.
    In Europe, the Council Directive 89/391 for improvement of workers' safety and health has emphasized the importance of addressing all occupational risk factors, and hence also psychosocial and organizational risk factors. Nevertheless, the construct of "work-related stress" elaborated from EU-OSHA is not totally corresponding with the "psychosocial" risk, that is a broader category of risk, comprising various and different psychosocial risk factors. The term "burnout", without any binding definition, tries to integrate symptoms as well as cause of the burnout process. Read More

    Graham Hughes Lupus Research Laboratory, King's College London School of Medicine, London, UK.
    Introduction: Antibodies to the domain 1 of beta 2 glycoprotein I (β2GPI-D1) have been suggested as a risk marker for thrombosis in patients with the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). This cross-sectional study aimed to analyze the clinical utility of a novel chemiluminescence assay for the detection of anti-β2GPI-D1 antibodies.

    Patients And Methods: Sera collected from patients with primary or secondary APS (n = 106; 72 with and 34 without history of thrombosis) and controls (n = 272) were tested for anti-β2GPI-D1 IgG by chemiluminescence assay (QUANTA Flash) and by two anti-β2GPI IgG assays (QUANTA Lite and QUANTA Flash β2GPI IgG).
