Risk factors for and estimated incidence of community-associated Clostridium difficile infection, North Carolina, USA.
(Emerg Infect Dis, 2010-02)
We determined estimated incidence of and risk factors for community-associated Clostridium difficile infection (CA-CDI) among patients treated at 6 North Carolina hospitals. CA-CDI case-patients were defined as adults (>18 ...
Racial differences in the prevalence and outcomes of atrial fibrillation among patients hospitalized with heart failure.
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2013-09-26)
BACKGROUND: The intersection of heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) is common, but the burden of AF among black patients with HF is poorly characterized. We sought to determine the prevalence of AF, characteristics, ...
The relation between insecure attachment and posttraumatic stress: Early life versus adulthood traumas.
(Psychological trauma : theory, research, practice and policy, 2015-07)
The present study examined the relations between insecure attachment and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms among community-dwelling older adults with exposure to a broad range of traumatic events. Attachment ...

Patterns in blood pressure medication use in US incident dialysis patients over the first 6 months.
(BMC Nephrol, 2013-11-12)
BACKGROUND: Several observational studies have evaluated the effect of a single exposure window with blood pressure (BP) medications on outcomes in incident dialysis patients, but whether BP medication prescription patterns ...
Bacterial vaginosis as a risk factor for high-grade cervical lesions and cancer in HIV-seropositive women.
(Int J Gynaecol Obstet, 2011-09)
OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of bacterial vaginosis (BV) on the risk of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) among HIV-seropositive women. METHODS: A hospital-based prospective cohort study of HIV-seropositive ...
Thrombolysis in myocardial infarction risk score in an observation unit setting.
(Crit Pathw Cardiol, 2013-09)
OBJECTIVE: The Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) score is a validated tool for risk stratification of acute coronary syndrome. We hypothesized that the TIMI risk score would be able to risk stratify patients in ...

Associations of genotypes and haplotypes of IL-17 with risk of gastric cancer in an eastern Chinese population.
Interleukin-17 plays a crucial role in inflammation-related carcinogenesis. We hypothesize that genetic variants in IL-17 are associated with gastric cancer (GCa) risk, and we genotyped five potentially functional single ...
