  1. Epigenetics and Suicidal Behavior Research Pathways

    Gustavo Turecki
    Suicide and suicidal behaviors are complex, heterogeneous phenomena that are thought to result from the interactions among distal factors increasing predisposition and proximal factors acting as precipitants. Epigenetic factors are likely to act both distally and proximally. Aspirational Goal 1 aims to find clear targets for suicide and suicidal behavior intervention through greater understanding of the interplay among the biological, psychological, and social risk and protective factors associated with suicide. This paper discusses Aspirational Goal 1, focusing on the research pathway related to epigenetics, suicide, and suicidal behaviors. Current knowledge on epigenetic factors associated with suicide and suicidal behaviors is...

  2. PEDIATRICS WORLDWIDE THE KURDISTANI CRADLE STORY A Modern Analysis of This Centuries-Old Infant Swaddling Practice

    Aaron Bloch; Ch. B
    Israeli immigrants from Iraq tie their infants into the Kurdistani cradle, a low wooden rocking bed, from birth until they are ready to walk. Movement is impossible. Is this a danger to children? What are the public health aspects of this custom? A pediatrician tells the fascinating story of his search for an-swers to these and related questions. It is a classic example of the impact of modern preventive medicine upon traditional child-rear-ing customs. ONE of the more attractive as-U pects of preventive medicine work in the new immigrant moshavim (collective farms) of Israel lies in the encounters it provides...

    Aim To determine whether maternal characteristics and treatment needs are associated with dental health services utilization (DHSU) in school children. Material and methods A cross-sectional study in 1373 school children aged 6-12 years in elementary schools in Campeche, Mexico collected family and sociodemographic characteristics; an oral examination was conducted. The dependent variable was DHSU in the year preceding the study. Results DHSU prevalence was 65.5%. The variables associated (p<0.05) with DHSU in the final multivariate model were age (OR=1.27), maternal schooling (OR=1.07), mother's attitude toward oral health (OR=1.39), frequency of tooth brushing (OR=1.83), enamel defects (OR=1.55), and unmet oral health...

    Electrocardiograms were recorded as part of a survey of 1,303 men and 1,348 women past 15 years of age belonging to a large religious isolate inhabiting regions of northwestern U.S.A. and southwestern Canada. The ECGs were classified according to the Minnesota Code and the abnormalities were related to constitutional charac-teristics, blood pressure, and serum cholesterol. Major codable ECG items included abnormal Q waves (54 cases), abnormal left axis deviation (44 cases), bundle-branch block (left 10, right 10), T-wave abnormalities (257 cases), prolonged P-R interval (80 cases), and occasional premature beats (143 cases) and showed no significant sex differences. ST-segment depressions...

  8. Naturopathic Medical Education: Where Conventional, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine Meet

    Douglas Poorman Phd; Paul Mittman

Complementary Health Practice Review, Vol. 7, No 2, Winter 2001 Naturopathic medicine marries ancient curative remedies with modern medical tech-nology; intuitive healing processes with clinical investigative skills; and natural medicinal powers with pharmaceutical capacity. Above all else, naturopathic medicine embraces preventive care....

  9. Pre-Clinical Grades Predict Clinical Performance in the MBBS Stage II Examination at the University of the West Indies, Mona

    Lauriann E. Young; Georgiana M. Gordon-strachan; G. Carroll
    Summary: In the preclinical sciences, statistically significant predictive values have been reported between the performances in one discipline and the others, supporting the hypothesis that students who perform well in one discipline were likely to perform well in the other disciplines. We therefore decided to conduct a retrospective study to investigate the predictive effects of preclinical subjects on clinical subjects from 87 students of The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus who took the MBBS Stage II examination at various times between May 2000 and May 2002. The grade in Pathology was significantly predicted by scores in Anatomy...

  10. Open Journal of Preventive Medicine The effects of 90-day feeding of D-psicose syrup in male

    Wistar Rats; Tatsuhiro Matsuo; Reika Ishii; Yoko Shirai
    D-Psicose is a rare sugar present in small quan-tities in natural products. In a previous study, we showed that D-psicose suppresses increase in plasma glucose and reduces body fat accu-mulation in rats. Based on acute and chronic toxicity testing in rats, D-psicose is classified as an ordinary and safe substance. Recently, we developed a high D-psicose syrup (PS) made from high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) by the alkaline isomerization method. However, the safety of PS as a food additive has not been demonstrated. In this study, we investigated the effects of 90-day feeding of PS in male Wistar rats. The...

    It is a matter of great concern that most developing countries including Pakistan are lagging behind in areas of human development including health related indicators, and this is despite growing evidence that efforts are being made to promote equity.1 This concern is validated by the existing disparities in health indicators that are widespread. For example, life expectancy at birth is 65.4 years in Pakistan, in comparison to a developed country such as Japan where it is 83 years.2 Interesting to note is that despite these disparities, health indicators are better in countries with strong primary care emphasis in their healthcare...

    shown great value in the management of chronic disease (CD), but has limited application in prevent-ing these diseases that remain a huge burden to the society. Technological advances have made determination of genetic predisposition to disease possible and have gained wide use in oncology to develop more effective and individualized treatment strategies—Personalized Medicine. There is growing interest in the application of these genetic tests in predicting risk for complex genetic diseases; even, direct-to-consumer tests are increasingly becoming available and affordable. CH has shown great po-tential in collecting phenotypic data, which can be overlaid on genomic data to deliver a more...

    Burnout syndrome and common mental disorders among community-based health agents OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of the burnout syndrome and of common mental disorders among community-based health agents, also identifying associated factors. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was carried out in 2006 with 141 community-based health agents who had been working for at least six months in primary care units in the city of São Paulo (Southeastern Brazil). The participants answered three questionnaires: one about sociodemographic, health- and work-related characteristics, the Self Reporting Questionnaire, and the Maslach Burnout Inventory, which allows the assessment of three dimensions of the burnout syndrome: emotional...

  20. The clinic HELP initiative: promoting health education in primary care clinics. Health Promotion Practice

    Medical clinics have had treating disease astheir main mission, but, as the populationchanges and chronic diseases becomemore prevalent, clinics are being forced to consider the importance of prevention and health pro-motion. Unfortunately, most clinics are not equipped to meet the health education and health promotion needs of their clients. Physicians and nurses are pressed for time and are often not prepared academically to provide health promotion education. At the same time, most clinics do not have a sufficient number of health educa-tion staff to provide the needed services to their clients or the community around them. Although those educating primary...
