Child adiposity and maternal feeding practices: a longitudinal analysis.
The results were more consistent with a "child-responsive" model whereby a mother's choice of feeding practice is influenced by her children's weight status rather than her feeding practices influencing the child's weight gain. Expand
Associations between children's appetitive traits and maternal feeding practices.
This study explored associations between child eating behaviors and maternal feeding practices, specifically testing the hypotheses that maternal "restriction" is associated with having a child withExpand
Overview of the current ISO tests for photocatalytic materials
The current eight published ISO standards associated with semiconductor photocatalysis are considered. These standards cover: (1) air purification (specifically, the removal of NO, acetaldehyde andExpand
Should healthy eating programmes incorporate interaction with foods in different sensory modalities? A review of the evidence
Prior exposure to a new food's non-taste sensory properties might facilitate the food's introduction into the child's diet, by providing the child with an opportunity to become partially familiar with the food without invoking the distress associated with tasting it. Expand
MVPA Is Associated with Lower Weight Gain in 8–10 Year Old Children: A Prospective Study with 1 Year Follow-Up
The hypothesis that weight gain over one year in 8–10 year olds would be more strongly predicted by moderate and vigorous physical activity (MVPA) than total physical activity or sedentary behaviour is tested and the results strongly support promotion of MVPA in children. Expand
Adiposity and ‘eating in the absence of hunger’ in children
EAH is a behavioural phenotype that is not specific to overweight children but instead shows a graded association with adiposity across the weight continuum, particularly in boys, although in this study, the effect was less pronounced in girls. Expand
Navigating the challenges of digital health innovation: considerations and solutions in developing online and smartphone-application-based interventions for mental health disorders
An analysis of challenges and considerations when developing digital mental health innovations is presented and collaborative working between clinicians, researchers, industry and service users is recommended to ensure e-therapies are engaging, acceptable, evidence based, scalable and sustainable.

Psychosocial correlates of objectively measured physical activity in children.
PA self-efficacy and self-concept are significant correlates of objectively measured PA in UK boys, and are significantly associated with time spent in MVPA. Expand
The community pharmacy-based anticoagulation management service achieves a consistently high standard of anticoagulant care.
CPAMS provides safe reliable anticoagulant care with a consistently high level of anticogulant control, according to a clinical audit of patients managed through CPAMS over two years from 1 January, 2013. Expand
A randomized, controlled dose‐ranging study of risedronate in children with moderate and severe osteogenesis imperfecta
The most appropriate dose of risedronate for children with moderate to severe osteogenesis imperfecta in this study was 2 mg/kg per week, and bone mass increased and bowing deformities reduced with increasing risingronate dose. Expand
