Do measures matter? Comparing surface-density-derived and census-tract-derived measures of racial residential segregation
TLDR
Census tract- derived measures of segregation are highly correlated with recently introduced spatial segregation measures, but the residual differences among measures are not uniform for all areas, and use of surface-density-derived measures provides researchers with tools to further explore the spatial relationships between segregation and health disparities.
Characteristics of a cohort of children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and JIA-associated Uveitis
TLDR
Young age at JIA diagnosis and the oligoarticular JIA subtype as predictors of uveitis development are confirmed and AA children appeared to have a more severe disease course manifested by increased ocular complications, vision loss and blindness.
Karyotype versus microarray testing for genetic abnormalities after stillbirth.
TLDR
Microarray analysis is more likely than karyotype analysis to provide a genetic diagnosis, primarily because of its success with nonviable tissue, and is especially valuable in analyses of stillbirths with congenital anomalies or in cases in which karyotypes cannot be obtained.
Pregnancy outcomes in female childhood and adolescent cancer survivors: a linked cancer-birth registry analysis.
TLDR
Infants born to female survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer were not at increased risk of malformations or death, and increased occurrence of preterm delivery and low birth weight suggest that close monitoring is warranted.
The infant aphakia treatment study: design and clinical measures at enrollment.
TLDR
The Infant Aphakia Treatment Study was designed to provide empirical evidence of whether optical treatment with an IOL or a contact lens after unilateral cataract surgery during infancy is associated with a better visual outcome.
Timeliness of childhood immunizations: a state-specific analysis.
TLDR
The authors' analysis of timeliness of administration shows that children rarely receive all vaccinations as recommended, and states can use the modified Bonferroni comparison to appropriately compare their results with other states.
Submacular hemorrhage removal.
TLDR
Pars plana vitrectomy to evacuate massive subretinal hemorrhage can improve visual acuity, but final visual acuteness is limited by the underlying disease.
Ophthalmologic features of Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
Ocular complaints suggesting ocular surface irritation, altered tear film, visual hallucinations, blepharospasm, decreased blink rate, and decreased convergence amplitudes were more common in PD patients than in control subjects, and likely account for many of the visual difficulties commonly encountered by PD patients.
Risk Markers of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis-associated Uveitis in the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) Registry
TLDR
It is described a decreased likelihood of uveitis in AA children and further exploration of race as a risk factor in a larger population of AA children is recommended.
