Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 30, 2015

Background: While adding sitagliptin to insulin therapy for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) showing poor response to therapy with premixed insulin alone, we compared the efficacy and safety and satisfaction from continuing treatment with the premixed insulin versus switching of the premixed insulin to basal insulin therapy. Methods: The study was an open-label, randomized controlled trial conducte...

Mohammed H Al-Thani, Al-Anoud Al-Thani, Walaa F Al-Chetachi, Shamseldin AH Khalifa, Hammad Akram, Benjamin V Poovelil, Badria A Almalki, Ahmad Haj Bakri, Paul Arora and Alaa Badawi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 10, 2015

Obesity is a complex, chronic disorder characterized by excessive fat accumulation in the body due to an imbalance between calorie intake and energy expenditure. Obesity is also directly related to the socio-economic status, physical environment, and behavioral and cultural aspects of a community. In addition, genetic factors may play an important role in the development of obesity, especially in ...

Mother's Autonomy and Health Outcome in Nepal

Prem B Bhandari

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: October 14, 2015

This paper investigates the influence of women's autonomy and husbands' roles in decision making on the utilization of antenatal care, a primary indicator of women's health and well-being. Using data on 4,018 Nepalese mothers who had at least one birth within the last 5 years, I employ multilevel logistic regression and find that women's autonomy in decision making significantly and positively con...

Can Alzheimer's Patients Receive and Store Information in Late Stage of the Disease and Can Memory be Restored if the Amyloid Plaques are Removed?

Fredrik C Stormer

Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: September 30, 2015

Never underestimate an Alzheimer's patient. Patients with Alzheimer's disease may be able to use information from the past and also use information that was accumulated during the disease if they get rid of the amyloid plaques. Recently the removal of beta amyloid plaques in a mouse model has been reported. Beta amyloid plaques accumulates in the spaces between neurons and interfere with communica...

Development of a Comprehensive NGS Workflow for the Analysis of Tumor BRCA1 and BRCA2 Mutations and Large Rearrangements

Zhengwei Dong, Hua Dong, Xiaorong Zhong, Zuxiang Peng, Xuehua Zhu, Yun Sun, Yunqin Chen, Changting Liu, Xiaolu Yin, Guanshan Zhu, Hong Zheng and Yi Gu

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 28, 2015

Patients with germ line or somatic BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations are sensitive to PARP inhibitor treatment. However, current clinical testing of BRCA1/2 is limited to germ line mutations in blood samples. In the present study, we have developed and validated a work flow for BRCA1/2 mutation test in patient tumor samples, which can identify both germ line and somatic mutations. Our approach combined ta...

Enhanced Detection of Longer Insertions and Deletions in Clinical Exome Sequencing Improves Diagnostic Yield

Deepali N. Shinde, Jefferey Chen, Soren Fischbach, David J. Salvador, Kelly Farwell, Hsiao-Mei Lu and Sha Tang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 17, 2015

Whole exome sequencing (WES) has been remarkably successful as both a diagnostic and novel gene discovery tool since its introduction to the clinical laboratory in 2011. Where traditional diagnostic methods have been uninformative in discovering the pathogenic etiology in patients, diagnostic exome sequencing (DES) has provided answers for roughly one-third of patients tested, thus contributing to...

Patient Health Literacy and Perception of Provider Communication: Is there a Link?

Erin Vaughn, Kristie Hadden and Benjamin Doolittle

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 21, 2015

Inadequate health literacy is a common problem that contributes to poor patient-provider communication. Health literacy screening and specific provider communication practices may be important in clinics where patients are at high risk for inadequate health literacy. This study assessed patients' health literacy and their perception of provider communication practices in a primary care residency p...

Safeguarding Public Health from Higher Education

Doug Dix

Article Type: Perspective | First Published: October 19, 2015

It is common to assume that colleges and universities provide service to the public. In the U.S., these institutions are granted tax-exemption on this assumption. In times long past, education, in itself, may have been a public service. But it isn't that anymore as the unintended consequences of progress degrade human habitat and social fabric. Education for progress could easily do more harm than...
