OBJECTIVES To determine the effects of risk and payment on subjects' willingness to participate, and to examine how payment influences subjects' potential behaviours and risk evaluations. METHODS A 3 (level of risk) x 3 (level of monetary payment), between subjects, completely randomised factorial design was used. Students enrolled at one of five US(More)

In this paper, a parallel VLSI processing architecture for MPEG-4 standard motion estimation implementation is proposed. It possesses the characteristics of low memory bandwidth and low clock rate requirements, thus primarily aiming at 3G mobile applications. Based on one dimensional tree architecture, the processing core employs dual-register/buffer(More)
OBJECTIVES Animal studies and clinical trials have examined the potential benefits of statins in asthma management with contradictory results. The objective of this study was to determine if asthma patients on concurrent statins are less likely to have asthma-related hospitalisations. DESIGN A retrospective cohort study using Mississippi Medicaid data for(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to ascertain the psychometric properties of EuroQol Five Dimensional Questionnaire (EQ-5D-3L) in primary caregivers of children with autism. The convergent validity, discriminant validity, known-groups validity, internal consistency reliability, and floor and ceiling effects of EQ-5D-3L were analyzed. METHODS A cross-sectional(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular fibrinolytic balance is maintained primarily by interplay of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1). Previous research has shown that polymorphisms in genes from the renin-angiotensin (RA), bradykinin, and fibrinolytic systems affect plasma concentrations of both t-PA and PAI-1 through a(More)
Exercise-induced inflammation has been shown to be necessary for successful skeletal muscle regeneration post-injury. Accordingly, numerous investigations have demonstrated consequences of COX-inhibitors, anti-inflammatory drugs which prevent prostaglandin formation. In addition to its roles in inflammation, prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) also mediates vital(More)

The effect of symbols on conveying health information has been studied in a variety of contexts and populations. This investigation assessed whether short-term recall of prescription medication information could be enhanced in a low health literate population through the use of symbols. Participants recruited from various nonpharmacy educational service(More)
