Effect of Race/Ethnicity and Smoking on Diurnal Variations in Testosterone Levels

Ram B Jain

Article Type: Research article | First Published: December 10, 2015

The effect of race/ethnicity and smoking on diurnal variations in total serum testosterone level (T-TST) was evaluated by analyzing data from NHANES for 2011-2012 for adolescent and adult males. For adolescent males, diurnal variability in T-TST levels was substantially smaller among smokers than nonsmokers for non-Hispanic white (NHW) and Hispanics but the reverse was true for non-Hispanic black (NHB). For adult males, morning levels of T-TST were 21-31% higher than the T-TST levels during evening among NHW and there was no diurnal variation in T-TST levels among NHB nonsmokers but NHB smoker...

The Impact of Renal Transplantation on Lower Limb Perfusion

Paul Alexander, Emma Aitken, David Mansouri and David Kingsmore

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 25, 2015

The benefits of renal transplantation are now more accessible to older, more comorbid patients. Currently, those with peripheral vascular disease are often excluded partly due to the theoretical risk of post transplantation limb ischemia, where blood is diverted away from an already under-perfused leg. This study aims to determine if renal transplantation affects lower limb perfusion....

Fernando Lana, Susana Marcos, Laia Molla, Ana Vilar, Victor Perez, Mireia Romero and Josep Marti

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 16, 2015

Systematic reviews of psychodynamic psychotherapy for individuals with psychosis have reported mixed results. However, mentalization-based therapy (MBT), a manualized psychodynamic psychotherapy, has been proven effective in controlled studies in non-psychotic patients with severe mental disorders. Although MBT is currently being used to treat psychotic patients, to date no studies have evaluated outcomes and treatment-related adverse effects....

Maciej Wiewiora, Jerzy Piecuch and Krystyn Sosada

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 12, 2015

Hemorheological alterations in obesity, including disturbances in the blood's rheological behavior such as increased blood and plasma viscosity and enhanced red blood cell (RBC) aggregation, have been reported by various authors. Blood and plasma viscosity are risk factors for arteriosclerosis. Other studies have shown that erythrocyte rheological changes have been observed in patients with hypertension and diabetes mellitus, which are more often associated with obesity....

Influence of SOC on the Mental Health Status of Postgraduate Trainee Dentists in Japan

Tohru Takarada, Yoshihisa Sumi and Yoshinori Higuchi

Article Type: Original Research Report | First Published: November 14, 2015

In Japan, a one-year compulsory postgraduate dental training program was started in April 2006. The aim of this training is to supplement the lack of clinical training in the undergraduate curriculum and to meet social requirements. New-entry dentists, who are called trainee dentists, have had their working conditions greatly improved, and are consequently able to concentrate on their clinical training. Trainee dentists must be paid reasonably and their work hours are limited to 40 hours a week by law, with no night duty or holiday work....

Article Type: Review article | First Published: November 14, 2015

Objectives: Ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures [IFNSF] are uncommon. The existing literature is characterized by a diversity of small reports with a lack of consensus. We performed a systematic review to examine the epidemiology and diagnosis of this injury. Methods: Nineteen databases were used to find articles published between January 1990 and June 2015 with no language restriction. Inclusion criteria were studies describing a minimum of five patients 16 years old or older with acute IFNSF and adequate extractable data. Exclusion criteria were trochanteric fracture and malignancy...
