Intravitreal anti-VEGF use in France: a cross-sectional and longitudinal Nationwide observational study.

Acta Ophthalmol 2021 Jun 14. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

EPI-PHARE (French National Agency for Medicines and Health Products Safety (ANSM) and French National Health Insurance (CNAM)), Saint-Denis, France.

Purpose: To describe the sociodemographic, medical and management characteristics of patients using intravitreal (IVT) anti-vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF) in France.

Methods: An observational study was conducted in patients treated with IVT ranibizumab or aflibercept, aged 18 years or older using the French National Health Insurance Databases covering 99% of the French population. Patients currently treated in 2018 were included in a cross-sectional approach to describe treatment history over the previous 6 years. Read More

Safety and efficacy of antiplatelet use before intravenous thrombolysis for acute Ischemic stroke.

J Neurol Sci 2021 06 15;425:117451. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, United States of America.

Aim: To study the effects of pretreatment with Antiplatelet (AP) before IV thrombolysis (IVT) on the rate of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH) and functional outcome in patients with Acute Ischemic stroke (AIS).

Method: In this retrospective study, the medical records and cerebrovascular images of all the patients who received IVT for AIS in our center in a 9.6-year period were reviewed. Read More

Statins Use and Outcome of Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients after Systemic Thrombolysis.

Cerebrovasc Dis 2020 14;49(5):503-508. Epub 2020 Sep 14.

Department of Neurology, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, Buffalo, New York, USA.

Aim: The aim of this was to study the effects of statins and their intensity on symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH) and outcome after IV thrombolysis (IVT) for acute ischemic stroke (AIS).

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records and cerebrovascular images of all the patients treated with IVT for AIS in our center in a 10-year period. Patients were further characterized as any statin users versus non-users on admission to the emergency department. Read More

Applying natural language processing techniques to develop a task-specific EMR interface for timely stroke thrombolysis: A feasibility study.

Int J Med Inform 2018 04 8;112:149-157. Epub 2018 Feb 8.

Department of Information Management and Institute of Healthcare Information Management, National Chung Cheng University, Chiayi County, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Objective: To reduce errors in determining eligibility for intravenous thrombolytic therapy (IVT) in stroke patients through use of an enhanced task-specific electronic medical record (EMR) interface powered by natural language processing (NLP) techniques.

Materials And Methods: The information processing algorithm utilized MetaMap to extract medical concepts from IVT eligibility criteria and expanded the concepts using the Unified Medical Language System Metathesaurus. Concepts identified from clinical notes by MetaMap were compared to those from IVT eligibility criteria. Read More

Massed versus spaced practice in vocology: effect of a short-term intensive voice training versus a longer-term traditional voice training.

Int J Lang Commun Disord 2018 03 5;53(2):393-404. Epub 2017 Dec 5.

Department of Speech-Language and Hearing Sciences, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium.

Background: In contrast with most medical and pharmaceutical therapies, the optimal dosage for voice therapy or training is unknown.

Aims: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of a short-term intensive voice training (IVT) with a longer-term traditional voice training (TVT) on the vocal quality and vocal capacities of vocally healthy non-professional voice users.

Methods & Procedures: A pre-/post-test randomized control group design with follow-up measurements was used. Read More

Efficient detection of contagious outbreaks in massive metropolitan encounter networks.

Sci Rep 2014 Jun 6;4:5099. Epub 2014 Jun 6.

National Information and Communications Technology Australia, University of Melbourne, Victoria 3010, Australia.

Physical contact remains difficult to trace in large metropolitan networks, though it is a key vehicle for the transmission of contagious outbreaks. Co-presence encounters during daily transit use provide us with a city-scale time-resolved physical contact network, consisting of 1 billion contacts among 3 million transit users. Here, we study the advantage that knowledge of such co-presence structures may provide for early detection of contagious outbreaks. Read More

IV thrombolysis and statins.

Neurology 2011 Aug 17;77(9):888-95. Epub 2011 Aug 17.

Department of Neurology, University Hospital Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

Objective: To examine whether prior statin use affects outcome and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) rates in stroke patients receiving IV thrombolysis (IVT).

Methods: In a pooled observational study of 11 IVT databases, we compared outcomes between statin users and nonusers. Outcome measures were excellent 3-month outcome (modified Rankin scale 0-1) and ICH in 3 categories. Read More

ArrayInitiative - a tool that simplifies creating custom Affymetrix CDFs.

BMC Bioinformatics 2011 May 6;12:136. Epub 2011 May 6.

Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics, University of North Carolina - Charlotte, Charlotte, NC 28223-0001, USA.

Background: Probes on a microarray represent a frozen view of a genome and are quickly outdated when new sequencing studies extend our knowledge, resulting in significant measurement error when analyzing any microarray experiment. There are several bioinformatics approaches to improve probe assignments, but without in-house programming expertise, standardizing these custom array specifications as a usable file (e.g. Read More
