Promotion of Breastfeeding Intervention Trial (PROBIT): a randomized trial in the Republic of Belarus.
TLDR
The authors' experimental intervention increased the duration and degree (exclusivity) of breastfeeding and decreased the risk of gastrointestinal tract infection and atopic eczema in the first year of life. Expand
Reduction of Hospital Utilization in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Disease-Specific Self-management Intervention
TLDR
A continuum of self-management for COPD patients provided by a trained health professional can significantly reduce the utilization of health care services and improve health status. Expand
Breastfeeding and child cognitive development: new evidence from a large randomized trial.
TLDR
These results, based on the largest randomized trial ever conducted in the area of human lactation, provide strong evidence that prolonged and exclusive breastfeeding improves children's cognitive development. Expand
Smoked cannabis for chronic neuropathic pain: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
A single inhalation of 25 mg of 9.4% tetrahydrocannabinol herbal cannabis three times daily for five days reduced the intensity of pain, improved sleep and was well tolerated, and no differences in mood or quality of life were found. Expand
Transfusion strategies for patients in pediatric intensive care units.
TLDR
In stable, critically ill children a hemoglobin threshold of 7 g per deciliter for red-cell transfusion can decrease transfusion requirements without increasing adverse outcomes. Expand
Effects of prolonged and exclusive breastfeeding on child height, weight, adiposity, and blood pressure at age 6.5 y: evidence from a large randomized trial.
TLDR
The breastfeeding promotion intervention resulted in substantial increases in the duration and exclusivity of breastfeeding, yet it did not reduce the measures of adiposity, increase stature, or reduce blood pressure at age 6.5 y in the experimental group. Expand
Long-term risk of CKD in children surviving episodes of acute kidney injury in the intensive care unit: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
In tertiary-care pediatric ICU patients, ∼10% develop CKD 1-3 years after AKI, which may be higher with further follow-up because several patients were identified as being at risk of CKD. Expand
Effectiveness of intensive rehabilitation on functional ability and quality of life after first total knee arthroplasty: A single-blind randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The IFR was effective in improving the short-term and mid-term functional ability after uncomplicated primary TKA and more intensive rehabilitation should be promoted in the subacute recovery period after TKA to optimize functional outcomes in the first year after surgery. Expand
Infant growth and health outcomes associated with 3 compared with 6 mo of exclusive breastfeeding.
TLDR
Exclusive breastfeeding for 6 mo is associated with a lower risk of gastrointestinal infection and no demonstrable adverse health effects in the first year of life, compared with 3 compared with 6 mo of exclusive breastfeeding. Expand
Use of antidepressants and risk of colorectal cancer: a nested case-control study.
TLDR
A population-based nested case-control study of people aged 5-85 years who were registered with Saskatchewan Health and eligible for prescription-drug benefit to assess whether SSRI use was associated with a decreased risk of colorectal cancer, and tricyclic-antidepressant use with an increased risk of colon cancer.
