The aim of the study was to determine association between osteoarthritis and metabolic syndrome stratified by age and gender categories. A final sample of 16,149 US residents aged 17 years or older was analyzed using the database National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NAHNES III). Variables assessed include age, gender, race, education, poverty income ratio, body mass index, smoking history, metabolic syndrome and its risk components. Continuous and categorical variables were…

Factors associated with metabolic syndrome among the elderly in the northeast of Brazil

A maior prevalencia de SM entre as mulheres e a associacao da SM com osteoartrite nesse grupo merece atencao, uma vez that essa pode causar limitacao funcional, comprometendo a qualidade of vida do idoso.

Classification Systems for Bacterial Protein-Protein Interaction Document Retrieval

The authors focus on article retrieval and define the task as binary classification where PPI-relevant articles are positives and the others are negatives, and consider learning with only positive labeled documents as learning from a noisy and imbalanced training set where unlabeled documents have great importance.

Application of Artificial Bee Colony Algorithms to Antenna Design Problems for RFID Applications

In this chapter, the ABC algorithm and its variants are presented and applied to spiral antennas design for RFID tag application at the UHF band and the optimization results show that the ABC family of algorithms is a powerful tool that can be efficiently applied to antenna design problems.

Introduction: A Survey of the Evolutionary Computation Techniques for Software Engineering

The idea of putting together the application of evolutionary computation and evolutionary optimization techniques in software engineering problems provided to the researchers the possibility to study some existing abSTraCT techniques.

Pseudo-Cut Strategies for Global Optimization

A framework for general pseudo-cut strategies in global optimization that provides a broader and more comprehensive range of methods and provides mechanisms for generating trial solutions that can be used with or without the temporary enforcement of the pseudo-cuts.

Discrete Particle Swarm Optimization for the Multi-Level Lot-Sizing Problem

This paper presents a Discrete Particle Swarm Optimization (DPSO) approach for the Multi-Level Lot-Sizing Problem (MLLP), which is an uncapacitated lot sizing problem dedicated to materials

A Hybrid Meta-Heuristic Algorithm for Dynamic Spectrum Management in Multiuser Systems: Combining Simulated Annealing and Non-Linear Simplex Nelder-Mead

A low-complex algorithm based on a combination of simulated annealing and non-linear simplex to find local (almost global) optimum spectra for multiuser DSL systems, whilst significantly reducing the prohibitive complexity of traditional OSB.

A Study of Tabu Search for Coloring Random 3-Colorable Graphs Around the Phase Transition

The authors present an experimental investigation of tabu search (TS) to solve the 3-coloring problem (3-COL). Computational results reveal that a basic TS algorithm is able to find proper

Berezin Number Inequalities of an Invertible Operator and Some Slater Type Inequalities in Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Spaces

A reproducing kernel Hilbert space (shorty, RKHS) H=H(Ω) on some set Ω is a Hilbert space of complex valued functions on Ω such that for every λ∈Ω the linear functional (evaluation functional) f→f(λ)



Prevalence of cardiovascular disease risk factors among US adults with self-reported osteoarthritis: data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

National survey data suggest that, on average, US adults with OA have a high prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors, which highlights the need to consider patients' comorbidites when selecting the appropriate treatment options.

Comorbidity in arthritis.

The data indicate that the burden of illness among people with arthritis is higher than for nonarthritics and that this burden appears to be increasing over time, particularly in RA.

The economic burden associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and hypertension: a comparative study.

The economic burden incurred by RA significantly exceeds that related to OA and HBP, while differences between patients with a diagnoses of OA without HBP or a diagnosis of HBP alone were non-significant, largely owing to the influence of comorbidities.

Body weight, body mass index, and incident symptomatic osteoarthritis of the hand, hip, and knee.

It is found that body weight was a predictor of incident osteoarthritis of the hand, hip, and knee and the results suggest that obesity is associated with the development of incident arthritis at all joints studied.

The impact of body mass index on later total hip arthroplasty for primary osteoarthritis: a cohort study in 1.2 million persons.

There was a strong dose-response association between BMI and later total arthroplasty for OA of the hip and participants who were overweight at a young age maintained an excess RR for arthro Plasty throughout the followup period.

Metabolic syndrome and a course of osteoarthrosis

Relationship of OA symptoms with metabolic factors may point to participation of the latter in the development and progression of OO, which resulted in 2.5 times greater nosological load on patients.

Estimates of the prevalence of arthritis and selected musculoskeletal disorders in the United States.

Given the limitations of the data on which they are based, this report provides the best available prevalence estimates for arthritis and other rheumatic conditions overall, and for selected musculoskeletal disorders, in the US population.

Obesity and osteoarthritis: more complex than predicted!

It is speculated that obesity may induce cartilage damage through activation of mechanoreceptors at the surface of chondrocytes, which are sensitive to pressure and link extracellular environment to intracellular signalling cascades.
