The impact of illness identity on recovery from severe mental illness: A test of the model.

J Clin Psychol 2021 May 8. Epub 2021 May 8.

Richard L Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Objective: The Illness Identity model posits that self-stigma reduces hope and self-esteem among persons with severe mental illnesses, impacting a range of outcomes. The "insight paradox" anticipates that the negative effects of self-stigma are amplified by insight. This study tested these predictions using both cluster and path analyses. Read More

Towards standardized reporting of service organization in rehabilitation for clinical trials.

J Rehabil Med 2021 May 7. Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Hannover Medical School, Carl-Neuberg-Str.1, DE-30625 Hannover, Germany. E-mail:

Meta-analysis of clinical trials in rehabilitation is often inconclusive, even when similar interventions are investigated. A possible reason for this is the influence of the settings in which rehabilitation services are delivered. Examples show that factors related to service organization in rehabilitation can influence study outcomes. Read More

DHA-enriched phospholipids from large yellow croaker roe regulate lipid metabolic disorders and gut microbiota imbalance in SD rats with a high-fat diet.

Food Funct 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Engineering Research Centre of Fujian-Taiwan Special Marine Food Processing and Nutrition, Ministry of Education, Fuzhou, 350002, Fujian, P.R. China. and College of Food Science, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, Fuzhou, 350002, Fujian, P.R. China.

Large yellow croaker roe phospholipids (LYCRPLs) have great nutritional value because they are rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is an n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 PUFA). In previous research, we studied the effect of LYCRPLs on the inhibition of triglyceride accumulation at the cellular level. However, its lipid regulation effect in rats on a high-fat diet and its influence on the gut microbiota has not yet been clarified. Read More

Geographic Pattern of Sushi Product Misdescription in Italy-A Crosstalk between Citizen Science and DNA Barcoding.

Foods 2021 Apr 2;10(4). Epub 2021 Apr 2.

Department of Biological, Geological and Environmental Sciences, Section of Animal Biology "M. La Greca", University of Catania, Via Androne 81, 95124 Catania, Italy.

The food safety of sushi and the health of consumers are currently of high concern for food safety agencies across the world due to the globally widespread consumption of these products. The microbiological and toxicological risks derived from the consumption of raw fish and seafood have been highlighted worldwide, while the practice of species substitution in sushi products has attracted the interest of researchers more than food safety agencies. In this study, samples of sushi were processed for species authentication using the Cytochrome Oxidase I (COI) gene as a DNA barcode. Read More

Distributions of LRS in varying environments.

Ecol Lett 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Laboratoire de Biométrie et Biologie Evolutive, Université de Lyon, Villeurbanne, France.

The lifetime reproductive success (LRS) of individuals is affected by random events such as death, realized growth or realized reproduction, and the outcomes of these events can differ even when individuals have identical probabilities. Another source of randomness arises when these probabilities also change over time in variable environments. For structured populations in stochastic environments, we extend our recent method to determine how birth environment and birth stage determine the random distribution of the LRS. Read More

Perioperative Opioid Exposure Patterns in Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Ten-Year Administrative Database Study.

Cureus 2021 Mar 16;13(3):e13927. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Division of Orthopaedics, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, USA.

Introduction: Variation in opioid exposure has been documented in many pediatric fields; however, little is currently known about the extent of these findings during the perioperative period. The purpose of this study was to examine perioperative opioid exposure on a national level among patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using an administrative database. Our aims were to assess the impact of hospitals and a variety of demographic factors on (1) the likelihood of perioperative opioid exposure and (2) the variability in relative opioid exposure.

Population-scale tissue transcriptomics maps long non-coding RNAs to complex disease.

Cell 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Genetics, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA; Department of Pathology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA. Electronic address:

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) genes have well-established and important impacts on molecular and cellular functions. However, among the thousands of lncRNA genes, it is still a major challenge to identify the subset with disease or trait relevance. To systematically characterize these lncRNA genes, we used Genotype Tissue Expression (GTEx) project v8 genetic and multi-tissue transcriptomic data to profile the expression, genetic regulation, cellular contexts, and trait associations of 14,100 lncRNA genes across 49 tissues for 101 distinct complex genetic traits.
