Evidenced‐Based Criteria for Differential Treatment Planning of Implant Restorations for the Partially Edentulous Patient
Abstract Evidence‐based criteria for differential implant planning for the partially edentulous patient have been lacking despite the exponential use of implant reconstructions. Anecdotal reports are often the basis for training of dental students and the continuing education of dentists and specialists. Decision‐making metrics for optimal dental treatment are best predicated on a comprehensive assessment of the systemic, local, and patient‐mediated factors evaluated through the lens of the best available evidence. The purpose of this article is to delineate the benefits/risks/alternatives calculus for patients consi...

A Survey of Removable Partial Denture Casts and Major Connector Designs Found in Commercial Laboratories, Athens, Greece
Conclusions: Analysis of the casts revealed that the type of major connectors selected does not comply with the indications for their applications, considering the lack of dental history and clinical examination. This notes the need for further training dentists and dental technicians in aspects of RPD framework design.

How mistimed and unwanted pregnancies affect timing of antenatal care initiation in three districts in Tanzania
Conclusion: Late ANC initiation is a significant maternal and child health consequence of mistimed and unwanted pregnancies in Tanzania. Women should be empowered to delay or avoid pregnancies whenever they need to do so. Appropriate counseling to women, especially those who happen to conceive unintentionally is needed to minimize the possibility of delaying ANC initiation.

V-TIME: a treadmill training program augmented by virtual reality to decrease fall risk in older adults: study design of a randomized controlled trial
DiscussionThis randomized controlled trial will demonstrate the extent to which an intervention that combines treadmill training augmented by virtual reality reduces fall risk, improves mobility and enhances cognitive function in a diverse group of older adults. In addition, the comparison to an active control group that undergoes treadmill training without virtual reality will provide evidence as to the added value of addressing motor cognitive interactions as an integrated unit.Trial Registration: NIH NCT01732653

Soy isoflavone intake and breast cancer risk in Japan: From the takayama study
Abstract The effects of soy or isoflavone intake on breast cancer need to be examined further in epidemiologic studies. We assessed the associations of soy and isoflavone intake with breast cancer incidence in a population‐based prospective cohort study in Japan. Participants were members from the Takayama study, aged 35 years or older in 1992. The follow‐up was conducted from the time of the baseline study (September 1, 1992) to the end of March, 2008. Cancer incidence was mainly confirmed through regional population‐based cancer registries. Breast cancer was defined as code C50 according to ICD‐10. Soy and isofla...

What stresses men? predictors of perceived stress in a population-based multi-ethnic cross sectional cohort
Background: Perceived stress (PS) is a risk factor for a variety of diseases. However, relatively little is known about age- or ethnicity-specific differences in the effect of potential predictors of PS in men. Methods: We used a population-based survey of 6,773 White, 1,681 Black, and 617 Hispanic men in Southeastern Pennsylvania to evaluate the relationship of self-reported PS and financial security, health status, social factors, and health behaviors. Interactions across levels of age and ethnicity were tested using logistic regression models adjusted for overall health status, education, and household poverty. Results:...

Medication communication during ward rounds on medical wards: Power relations and spatial practices
This article examines power relations and spatial practices surrounding medication communication between patients and health professionals including doctors, nurses and pharmacists during ward rounds. Data were collected in two medical wards of a metropolitan teaching hospital in Melbourne, Australia. Data collection methods involved participant observations, field interviews, video-recordings, together with individual and group reflexive interviews. A critical discourse analysis was undertaken to identify the location sites where power relations were reproduced or challenged in ward rounds. Findings demonstrated that trad...
