Promoting mother-infant relationships and underlying neural correlates: Results from a randomized controlled trial of a home-visiting program for adolescent mothers in Brazil
DEVELOPMENTAL SCIENCE, v.24, n.6, 2021
Poverty and teenage pregnancy are common in low-and-middle-income countries and can impede the development of healthy parent-child relationships. This study aimed to test whether a home-visiting intervention could improve early attachment relationships between adolescent mothers and their infants...
Implication of the New AJCC pT Classification of SCC of the Lip Comparing With Other Oral Subsites
LARYNGOSCOPE, v.131, n.11, p.E2770-E2776, 2021
Objective To determine the implication of the new AJCC staging system for pT classification in a cohort of patients with SCC of the lip mucosa and compare it to other oral cavity sites. Methods Retrospective cohort of 744 patients treated between 2002 and 2017, by the Head and Neck Surgery Depart...
The effects of treadmill exercise in animal models of Parkinson's disease: A systematic review
NEUROSCIENCE AND BIOBEHAVIORAL REVIEWS, v.131, p.1056-1075, 2021
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive disabling brain disorder. Physical exercise has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of PD and, consequently, improve patient quality of life. Exercise mechanisms involved in beneficial effects on PD have been widely investigated. This study aims to syste...
Machine Learning for Prediction of Stable Warfarin Dose in US Latinos and Latin Americans
FRONTIERS IN PHARMACOLOGY, v.12, article ID 749786, 13p, 2021
Populations used to create warfarin dose prediction algorithms largely lacked participants reporting Hispanic or Latino ethnicity. While previous research suggests nonlinear modeling improves warfarin dose prediction, this research has mainly focused on populations with primarily European ancestr...
Proximity of schools to roads and students' academic performance: A cross-sectional study in the Federal District, Brazil
ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, v.202, article ID 111770, 7p, 2021
Investigations of the educational implications of children's exposure to air pollutants at school are crucial to enhance our understanding of the hazards for children. Most of the existing literature is based on studies performed in North America and Europe. Further investigation is required in l...
Regadenoson-induced T-wave heterogeneity complements coronary stenosis detection by myocardial perfusion imaging in men and women
EUROPEAN HEART JOURNAL-CARDIOVASCULAR IMAGING, v.22, n.11, p.1341-1349, 2021
Aims We analysed whether incorporating electrocardiographic interlead T-wave heterogeneity (TWH) with myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) during pharmacologic stress improves detection of flow-limiting lesions (FLL). Methods and results Medical records of all 103 patients at our institution who un...
Warm-Up Intensity Does Not Affect the Ergogenic Effect of Sodium Bicarbonate in Adult Men
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SPORT NUTRITION AND EXERCISE METABOLISM, v.31, n.6, p.482-489, 2021
This study determined the influence of a high- (HI) versus low-intensity (LI) cycling warm-up on blood acid-base responses and exercise capacity following ingestion of sodium bicarbonate (SB; 0.3 g/kg body mass) or a placebo (PLA; maltodextrin) 3 hr prior to warm-up. Twelve men (21 +/- 2 years, 7...
Update on Desensitization
CURRENT TREATMENT OPTIONS IN ALLERGY, v.6, n.4, p.519-537, 2019
Purpose of reviewRapid drug desensitization (RDD) is a high-risk protocol that allows patients with hypersensitivity reactions to remain on first-line therapy for their underlying conditions through titration of dose increments and infusion rates. The aim of this paper is to review the most recen...
