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.

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.

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.
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.

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 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.
The infant aphakia treatment study: design and clinical measures at enrollment.
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.

Excessive maternal alcohol use is associated with an increased risk of newborn infection in this patient sample and increased awareness and further clinical investigations are warranted to address the detrimental effects of fetal alcohol exposure on the developing immune system.
