Genetics and inflammatory profile in tobacco dependence

mutations and confirmed by the association between nicotine dependence and rs16969968. This allele mutation rs16969968 is responsible for increased addiction in adulthood to those who initiated smoking before 16 years of age. Thus, those who have the present mutation and initiate smoking under the age of 16 have an increased risk of becoming heavy smokers. Although the genetic risk factor for nicotine addiction is present from birth, the distinct development of smoker/nonsmoker phenotypes and the degree of addiction is also influenced by the environment, which can

Long-acting injectable antipsychotics in patients with schizophrenia: systematic review and mixed treatment meta-analysis

estimating the log hazard ratios, instead of odd ratios when calculating pair-wise comparisons. Like typical survival analysis, it should be noted that this current analysis relies heavily on the proportional competing risk assumption and constant hazard ratios in each arm [ 20 , 22 , 46 ]. Nevertheless, limitations in our analysis are noted. We only considered LAIs that are available in Thailand. Therefore applying our findings in other settings with different comparative medications might show different outcomes. Our searching strategy was limited to English

Prevalence and risk factors for cryptosporidiosis: a global, emerging, neglected zoonosis

. The most commonly isolated Cryptosporidium sp. was C. hominis . Although the number of cases reported in Germany is lower than in England, it was a 1.6 fold increased since 2007 [ 90 ]. The suggested reasons for this increase include climatic changes, such as heavy rainfall, contaminated drinking water, and better reporting. Nevertheless, there was no direct evidence of secondary transmission from parents to children. Moreover, specific causes of Cryptosporidium spp. infection were not identified, despite case interviews. The prevalence of Cryptosporidia in
