Clear differences in perceptual and neural processing of faces of different species have been reported, implying the contribution of visual experience to face perception. Can these differences be revealed by our eye scanning patterns while we extract salient facial information? Here, we systematically compared non-pet-owners' gaze patterns while exploring(More)
OBJECTIVE Management of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is complex and variability in practices exists. Guidelines have been developed to help improve the management of SLE patients, but there has been no formal evaluation of these guidelines. This study aims to compare the scope, quality, and consistency of clinical practice guidelines on the diagnosis,(More)
OBJECTIVE Disease activity, organ damage, and treatment burden are often substantial in children and adolescents with systemic lupus erythematous (SLE), and the complex interplay among the developing child, parents, and peers makes effective management difficult. We aimed to describe the experiences and perspectives of adolescents and young adults diagnosed(More)
BACKGROUND Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a life-threatening genetic disorder and has multiple complications including, infection, pain, intracranial aneurysm and kidney failure leading to significantly impaired quality of life and reduced survival. These outcomes are well described, but patient perspectives and experiences of(More)
OBJECTIVE Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic, progressive autoimmune disease with major end-organ involvement. Much attention has been focused on the management of physical and clinical manifestations; however, the effect of the disease and treatment on the patient's identity, relationships, functioning, and mental well-being are less known. We aimed to(More)
AIM This study aimed to identify consumer perspectives on topics and outcomes to integrate in the Kidney Health Australia Caring for Australasians with Renal Impairment (KHA-CARI) clinical practice guidelines on autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). METHODS A workshop involving three concurrent focus groups with 18 consumers (patients with(More)
The chemical modification caused by prolonged exposure to X-rays on a series of para-substituted phenyl moieties (-NO2, -CN, -CHO, -COOH, -CO2Me, and -CO2(1)Bu) at the surface of thiolate-Au self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) has been investigated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Furthermore, the influence that the phenyl group has on the chemical(More)
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the commonest inherited cause of renal failure in adults, and is due to loss-of-function mutations in either the PKD1 or PKD2 genes, which encode polycystin-1 and polycystin-2, respectively. These proteins have an essential role in maintaining the geometric structure of the distal collecting duct in(More)
INTRODUCTION The integration of patient and caregiver input into guideline development can help to ensure that clinical care addresses patient expectations, priorities, and needs. We aimed to identify topics and outcomes salient to patients and caregivers for inclusion in the Kidney Health Australia Caring for Australasians with Renal Impairment (KHA-CARI)(More)
OBJECTIVE Managing juvenile-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is particularly challenging. The disease may be severe, adolescent patients have complex medical and psychosocial needs, and patients must navigate the transition to adult services. To inform patient-centered care, we aimed to identify the healthcare and research priorities of young(More)
