Diagnostic and Clinical Utility of the GAD-2 for Screening Anxiety Symptoms in Individuals With Multiple Sclerosis To assess the diagnostic and clinical utility of the 2-item Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale (GAD-2) for screening anxiety symptoms in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS).Cross-sectional.University-affiliated MS neurology and rehabilitation center.The sample comprised adults (N=99) (ages 19-72; mean ± SD=46.2±13.0; 75% women) with a physician-confirmed MS diagnosis who were (...) clinically significant anxiety symptoms. Alternatively, a cutoff score of ≥2 provided excellent sensitivity (1.00) and fair specificity (0.76).The GAD-2 is a clinically useful and psychometrically valid tool for screening anxiety symptoms in MS rehabilitation and neurology care settings. Importantly, this tool has the potential to identify individuals with MS who are at risk for anxiety disorders and who may benefit from rehabilitation psychology interventions to ultimately improve functioning

Development and clinimetric assessment of a nurse-administered screening tool for movement disorders in psychosis Movement disorders associated with exposure to antipsychotic drugs are common and stigmatising but underdiagnosed.To develop and evaluate a new clinical procedure, the ScanMove instrument, for the screening of antipsychotic-associated movement disorders for use by mental health nurses.Item selection and content validity assessment for the ScanMove instrument were conducted (...) by a panel of neurologists, psychiatrists and a mental health nurse, who operationalised a 31-item screening procedure. Interrater reliability was measured on ratings for 30 patients with psychosis from ten mental health nurses evaluating video recordings of the procedure. Criterion and concurrent validity were tested comparing the ScanMove instrument-based rating of 13 mental health nurses for 635 community patients from mental health services with diagnostic judgement of a movement disorder neurologist

Screening for Syphilis Infection in Pregnant Women: US Preventive Services Task Force Reaffirmation Recommendation Statement. Untreated syphilis infection in pregnant women can be transmitted to the fetus (congenital syphilis) at any time during pregnancy or at birth. Congenital syphilis is associated with stillbirth, neonatal death, and significant morbidity in infants (eg, bone deformities and neurologic impairment). After a steady decline from 2008 to 2012, cases of congenital syphilis (...) markedly increased from 2012 to 2106, from 8.4 to 15.7 cases per 100 000 live births (an increase of 87%).

Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma Tumor Stage at Diagnosis in the 1945‐1965 Birth Cohort Reflects Poor Use of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Screening Individuals from the 1945-1965 birth cohort account for the majority of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cases in the United States. Understanding trends in HCC among this birth cohort is vital given the increasing burden of chronic liver disease among this group. We retrospectively evaluated trends and disparities in HCC tumor stage at the time (...) to non-Hispanic whites (odds ratio, 0.73; 95% confidence interval, 0.68-0.78; P < 0.01). Conclusion: From 2004 to 2014, the burden of newly diagnosed HCC among the 1945-1965 birth cohort increased by 5.9% per year. While improvements in earlier staged HCC at diagnosis were observed, the majority of patients with HCC among the 1945-1965 birth cohort were beyond the Milan criteria at diagnosis; this may reflect poor utilization or suboptimal performance of HCC screening tests.

Chemical genetic-based phenotypic screen reveals novel regulators of gluconeogenesis in human primary hepatocytes Insulin resistance is a pathophysiological hallmark of type 2 diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Under the condition of fat accumulation in the liver, suppression of hepatic glucose production by insulin is diminished. In order to gain deeper understanding of dysregulation of glucose production in metabolic diseases, in the present study, we performed an unbiased (...) phenotypic screening in primary human hepatocytes to discover novel mechanisms that regulate gluconeogenesis in the presence of insulin. To optimize phenotypic screening process, we used a chemical genetic screening approach by building a small-molecule library with prior knowledge of activity-based protein profiling. The "positive hits" result from the screen will be small molecules with known protein targets. This makes downstream deconvolution process (i.e., determining the relevant biological targets
