Assessment of chitosan nanoparticles in improving the efficacy of nitazoxanide on cryptosporidiosis in immunosuppressed and immunocompetent murine models
Cryptosporidiosis is one of the major causes of diarrhea in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. It is self-limited in immunocompetent individuals. However, in the immunocompromised it canExpand
Modeling the impact of players’ workload on the injury‐burden of English Premier League football clubs
  • C. Fuller
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Scandinavian journal of medicine & science in sports
  • 2018
TLDR
The kinetic model predicted higher match and lower training injury burdens and a higher overall injury burden for successful teams competing in both national and European club competitions compared to teams competing only in national competitions. Expand
Development of a composite outcome score for a complex intervention - measuring the impact of Community Health Workers
TLDR
This simulation of a population household structure based on household composition data from the 2011 England and Wales census is a useful first step towards a process-centred composite score of practical value in complex community-based interventions. Expand
Application of whole genome amplification for the investigation of genomic mutations in Hodgkin’s lymphoma AND comparing and contrasting different approaches to identifying predictive biomarker combinations
TLDR
This study attempts to design a biomarker tool based on steroid metabolic excretion data containing 32 distinct adrenal derived steroid secretions obtained from 102 ACA patients and 45 ACC patients using Variable selection was performed by forward selection, stepwise selection, and all subset combination methods using logistic regression.

Editorial: Detailed guidelines for reporting quantitative research in Health & Social Care in the Community
TLDR
This article gives a more detailed explanation of the structure, layout and content expected for manuscripts reporting the results of empirical quantitative research and covers the reporting of commonly-used methods. Expand
Assessment of total body fat using the skinfold technique in full‐term and preterm infants
TLDR
Evaluated the potential of a published method, based on measurements of SFT, to assess total body fat (TBF) of infants; and to calculate the fat content of adipose tissue (AT) in infants using previously published information regarding AT volume and total body water. Expand
A novel high specificity COVID-19 screening method based on simple blood exams and artificial intelligence
TLDR
An artificial intelligence classification framework, ER-CoV, is built aiming at determining which patients were more likely to be negative for SARS- CoV-2 when visiting an ER and that were categorized as a suspect case by medical professionals. Expand
COVID-19 EM DEBATE
Objective: To compare the postoperative bleeding between the skeletonized grafts and pedicled internal thoracic artery (ITA) in coronary artery bypass. Material and Method: 132 elective patientsExpand

TLDR
This chapter provides an overview of all elements of the research proposal, from the title to the potential results that the researcher might expect. Expand
Epidemiology, prevention and control of Legionnaires’ disease in Europe
TLDR
It is found that hotel size and previous association with multiple cases were predictors of the occurrence of a further case of LD, and weaknesses in data collected in the surveillance scheme are highlighted. Expand

Efficacy of BCG vaccine in the prevention of tuberculosis. Meta-analysis of the published literature.
TLDR
Protection against tuberculous death, meningitis, and disseminated disease is higher than for total TB cases, although this result may reflect reduced error in disease classification rather than greater BCG efficacy. Expand

TLDR
Finding and analyzing all therapeutic trials in a given field has become such a difficult and specialized task that the clinical experts called on to summarize the evidence in a timely fashion need access to better databases and new statistical techniques to assist them. Expand
Overview of randomised trials of diuretics in pregnancy.
TLDR
It is suggested that extremely large, ultra simple randomised trials are needed, of a size sufficient to permit direct assessment of the effects of treatment not on pre-eclampsia but on perinatal mortality itself, which may require the study of tens of thousands of pregnancies. Expand

TLDR
If one aim of a study is to detect interactions, the size of the study will have to be at least four times larger than if attention were confined to detecting main effects of the same magnitude. Expand
