Research suggests that racial/ethnic disparities in COVID-19 in the US are largely driven by higher rates of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 among Hispanic/Latino and Black populations.
This study uses the China Health and Nutrition Survey data to investigate the relationship between infrastructure construction and health inequality, particularly by exploring a quasi-natural experime
Self-management of type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a difficult task that involves different actions and decisions and requires various types of knowledge.

The performance of probiotic bacterial strains is influenced by the carrier food and its functional components which while buffering the probiotic through the gastro-intestinal tract, contribute to


Digital Signal Processing: A Review Journal, Volume 119, December 2021

The field of digital histopathology has seen incredible growth in recent years.

This study supports SDGs 3 and 6 by showing that a handwashing intervention involving disgust-inducing messages, combined with the provision of handwashing stations in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, successfully increased rates of handwashing with soap after toilet use. These findings demonstrate the effectiveness of combining health-based messaging with non-health-based messaging when implementing water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water pose a serious threat to human health due to their toxic effects. This manuscript evaluates various drinking water treatment processes to remove these compounds from drinking water, in order to assure the quality of water intended for human consumption.
Relative number of participants with a diagnosis of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) in studies that assessed its association with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
In studies of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, white women are overrepresented. There is limited and heterogeneous reporting of race and ethnicity information across studies and few include race and/or ethnicity variables in statistical analysis.
MiRNA mouse models are emerging tools to study the protective and/or deleterious effects of miRNAs in human diseases. In the current study, miR-455-3p TG and KO models were successfully generated by using pronuclear injection of miR-455-3p transgene to mouse embryo and CRISPER/Cas9 knockout techniques.
"A diverse range of biochemical and cellular assays are used by medicinal chemists to guide compound optimization. The data collected from these assays influence decisions taken on structure-activity relationship (SAR) campaigns. Therefore, it is paramount that medicinal chemists have a solid understanding of the strengths and limitations of each assay being used to characterize synthesized analogs. This Perspective Article takes a look at assays relevant to Gaucher, Pompei, Wolman, and Fabry disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Cystic Fibrosis."
