Using Observational Data to Estimate the Effect of Hand Washing and Clean Delivery Kit Use by Birth Attendants on Maternal Deaths after Home Deliveries in Rural Bangladesh, India and Nepal.
BACKGROUND: Globally, puerperal sepsis accounts for an estimated 8-12% of maternal deaths, but evidence is lacking on the extent to which clean delivery practices could improve maternal survival. We used data from the ...
Prevalence of human papillomaviruses in the mouths of New Zealand women.
AIM: Human papillomavirus (HPV) in the oral cavity has been retrospectively associated with an increased risk of developing HPV-positive head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The aim of this study was to determine ...
Utility of mosquito surveillance data for spatial prioritization of vector control against dengue viruses in three Brazilian cities.
BACKGROUND: Vector control remains the primary defense against dengue fever. Its success relies on the assumption that vector density is related to disease transmission. Two operational issues include the amount by which ...
Endothelial function and insulin sensitivity during acute non-esterified fatty acid elevation: Effects of fat composition and gender.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: We have reported that adverse effects on flow-mediated dilation of an acute elevation of non-esterified fatty acids rich in saturated fat (SFA) are reversed following addition of long-chain (LC) n-3 ...
Single-molecule folding mechanisms of the apo- and Mg(2+)-bound states of human neuronal calcium sensor-1.
Neuronal calcium sensor-1 (NCS-1) is the primordial member of a family of proteins responsible primarily for sensing changes in neuronal Ca(2+) concentration. NCS-1 is a multispecific protein interacting with a number of ...
