Daily intake of antioxidants in relation to survival among adult patients diagnosed with malignant glioma.
(BMC Cancer, 2010-05-19)
BACKGROUND: Malignant glioma is a rare cancer with poor survival. The influence of diet and antioxidant intake on glioma survival is not well understood. The current study examines the association between antioxidant intake ...
Survey of methadone-drug interactions among patients of methadone maintenance treatment program in Taiwan.
(Subst Abuse Treat Prev Policy, 2012-03-20)
BACKGROUND: Although methadone has been used for the maintenance treatment of opioid dependence for decades, it was not introduced in China or Taiwan until 2000s. Methadone-drug interactions (MDIs) have been shown to cause ...
Pilot randomized trial on mindfulness training for smokers in young adult binge drinkers.
(BMC Complement Altern Med, 2013-09-03)
BACKGROUND: We report results of a pilot study designed to test a novel smoking cessation intervention, Mindfulness Training for Smokers (MTS), in smokers age 18-29 years with regular episodes of binge drinking. Mindfulness ...
Refusal in testicular cancer patients: implications for surveillance.
(Br J Cancer, 1992-05)
Age mediation of frontoparietal activation during visual feature search.
Activation of frontal and parietal brain regions is associated with attentional control during visual search. We used fMRI to characterize age-related differences in frontoparietal activation in a highly efficient feature ...
Changing epidemiology of serious bacterial infections in febrile infants without localizing signs.
(PLoS One, 2010-08-27)
OBJECTIVE: Historically, management of infants with fever without localizing signs (FWLS) has generated much controversy, with attempts to risk stratify based on several criteria. Advances in medical practice may have altered ...
Utility of telomerase-pot1 fusion protein in vascular tissue engineering.
(Cell Transplant, 2010)
While advances in regenerative medicine and vascular tissue engineering have been substantial in recent years, important stumbling blocks remain. In particular, the limited life span of differentiated cells that are harvested ...
Management of prostate cancer in older men: recommendations of a working group of the International Society of Geriatric Oncology.
(BJU Int, 2010-08)
Prostate cancer is the most prevalent cancer in men and predominantly affects older men (aged >or=70 years). The median age at diagnosis is 68 years; overall, two-thirds of prostate cancer-related deaths occur in men aged ...
The architecture of cross-hemispheric communication in the aging brain: linking behavior to functional and structural connectivity.
(Cereb Cortex, 2012-01)
Contralateral recruitment remains a controversial phenomenon in both the clinical and normative populations. To investigate the neural correlates of this phenomenon, we explored the tendency for older adults to recruit prefrontal ...
Adult age differences in functional connectivity during executive control.
Task switching requires executive control processes that undergo age-related decline. Previous neuroimaging studies have identified age-related differences in brain activation associated with global switching effects (dual-task ...
