Second Line and Maintenance Therapy for Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer without Driver Mutation: An Evolving Paradigm

Stephanie Brule and Paul Wheatley-Price

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: May 02, 2016

Lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst men and women combined, and is responsible for the greatest number of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) represents about 85% of all lung cancers, and is the umbrella term that includes the most common histological subtypes: adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and large cell carcinoma. Due to the fact that it is frequently diagnosed at an advanced stage or recurs after potentially curative treatment, t...

Relationship between Socio Demographic Characteristics and HIV Indicators among Women in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia and Malawi Based on DHS Data

Samuel Kalibala, Erick Oweya and Lyson Phiri

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 25, 2016

In sub-Saharan Africa women have disproportionately higher HIV prevalence than men. This is in spite of the wide availability of HIV information, condoms and HIV testing services. UNAIDS has proposed that due to women's fear of stigma and rejection by their partners, women are not able to seek HIV testing and other HIV services. In order to inform targeted programming for women it is important to examine to what extent women in Africa have attained HIV information and positive attitudes and whet...

Stealth Embolics for Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Alexandre Laurent, Laurence Moine, Laurent Bedouet and Michel Wassef

Article Type: Short Review | First Published: June 15, 2016

Once fibroid ischemia is achieved by the blockade of the uterine arteries with particles, there is no longer the need for these particles which act as permanent foreign bodies in the uterus. They generate inflammation and will compromise the physiological adaptation of the uterine arteries during pregnancy. After having played their role, the particles have to disappear. The time for resorbable biomaterials has come. Promising degradable microspheres are being developed from various biomaterials...

Hba1c Variability, Absolute Changes in Hba1c, and the Risk of Poor Glycemic Control among Older Adults with Diabetes Enrolled in Medicare Advantage Plans

Dingwei Dai, Susannah Higgins and Natan Szapiro

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 01, 2016

Healthcare claims data for all diabetes patients aged 65 years or older and continuously enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans in Independence Blue Cross from 2013 to 2014 and had ≥ 3 HbA1c measurements in the 2013 measurement year (MY). We used patients' zip codes to link to US census data to get socioeconomic status information. Poor glycemic control was identified as the most recent HbA1c level > 9.0% during the MY. HbA1c variability was defined as within-subject standard deviation of Hb...

The Impact of Energy Drink Consumption on Vascular Endothelial Function

R Matthew Brothers

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 07, 2016

Vascular endothelial dysfunction contributes to a variety of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Despite anecdotal reports of adverse cardiovascular and hemodynamic effects of energy drink consumption there has been very little scientific research conducted on this important topic. Furthermore, the limited research available has not yielded consistent results. This study tested the hypothesis that consumption of a commercially available energy drink would have no effect on endothelial functio...

Piriform Margin Augmentation as a Treatment for Persistent Nasal Valve Dysfunction: A Cadaveric Investigation and Report of Initial Clinical Results

Randolph B Capone, Michael M Kim and Dane J Genther

Article Type: Clinical Study | First Published: June 02, 2016

Background: Revision nasal valve reconstruction is one of the few treatment options available for patients with persistent nasal valve dysfunction after primary functional rhinoplasty. Revision nasal surgery is challenging, hampered by the presence of scar tissue, incorporated grafts, and the morbidity of obtaining additional autologous cartilage. Objective: In order to enhance nasal valve function while avoiding revision nasal surgery, a sublabial technique was developed to increase the project...
