Scott L Lee

Article Type: Perspective | First Published: September 01, 2016

Juliana S Ee, Cristobal S Berry-Caban, Dana R Nguyen, Madina Boyd, Nick Bennett, Thomas Beltran and Michele Williams

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 20, 2016

nsomnia is a highly prevalent sleep disorder in the US. Among the military population, 41% of active duty service members reported less than 5 hours sleep per night, and there was nearly a 20-fold increase in incidence of insomnia among service members between 2000 and 2009. Given that most soldiers with insomnia seek initial treatment in the primary care setting, an understanding of soldiers' treatment expectations and preferences may contribute to treatment success....

Malin Kele and Anna Falk

Article Type: Mini-Review | First Published: August 17, 2016

A decade has passed since Shinya Yamanaka published his landmarking publication on how to produce pluripotent stem-cell-like cells and the term induced pluripotent stem cells, iPS cells, was coined. This past decade has been a decade devoted to pluripotent cells, scrutinizing molecular mechanisms in cell identity, and optimizing derivation methods, culture conditions and characterization methods to xenofree and chemically defined clinical-grade pluripotent stem cells....

Evaluation of Vitamin D, IL6 and Hs-CRP in Different Stages of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Their Correlation with Severity of Disease and Frequency of Exacerbations

Balakrishnan Menon, Charanjeet Kaur, Harsh Vardhan, Arya Gopi and Md Yousoof Dar

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 30, 2016

The role of systemic inflammation in COPD has been proved in recent studies. It is associated with increased level of inflammatory cytokines such as IL-6 (Interleukin 6) & inflammatory mediators such as hs-CRP (high sensitivity C Reactive Protein). There is also extensive evidence supporting the action of vitamin D in immunity & inflammation. Low blood levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D have been associated with a higher risk of respiratory infections in general populations and higher risk of exacerb...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 10, 2016

Data was collected from Malmo Diet and Cancer Study, with baseline examinations between 1991 and 1996. Out of 17035 women who completed all study parts, 765 women with incident breast cancer were included in this study. Kaplan Meier and Cox Proportional Hazards analyses, with 95% confidence intervals (CI), were used to study OC in relation to breast cancer-specific and overall survival. All analyses were stratified on age at diagnosis....
