  • Assessing the efficiency of Iran health system in making progress towards universal health coverage: a comparative panel data analysis. [Journal Article]
    Cost Eff Resour Alloc. 2020; 18:20.Sajadi HS, Goodarzi Z, … Majdzadeh R
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a growing demand for efficiency improvements in the health systems to achieve UHC. While there are no defined set of indicators or precise methods to measure health system efficiency, EDEA helped us to draw the picture of health system efficiency in Iran. Our findings highlighted the essential need for targeted and sustained interventions, i.e., allocation of enough proportion of public funds to the health sector, to improve universal financial coverage against health costs aiming to enhance the future performance of Iran's health system, ultimately. Such tailored interventions may also be useful for settings with similar context to speed up their movement towards improving efficiency, which in turn might lead to more resources to reach UHC.
  • Taking a Stand for Office-Based Workers' Mental Health: The Return of the Microbreak. [Journal Article]
    Front Public Health. 2020; 8:215.Mainsbridge CP, Cooley D, … Pedersen SJ
  • There is evidence that movement-based microbreaks can improve the cardiovascular health of desk-based employees, but their effect on mood states is yet to be investigated. As daily work tasks can potentially result in the loss of physical and psychological resources, the objective of this study was to measure the effect of movement microbreaks during formal work time on mood states. In a randomiz…

  • Recurrent convolutional neural kernel model for stock price movement prediction. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2020; 15(6):e0234206.Liu S, Zhang X, … Feng G
  • Stock price movement prediction plays important roles in decision making for investors. It was usually regarded as a binary classification task. In this paper, a recurrent convolutional neural kernel (RCNK) model was proposed, which learned complementary features from different sources of data, namely, historical price data and text data in the message board, to predict the stock price movement. …
  • Shifting from tobacco growing to alternatives in Malawi? A qualitative analysis of policy and perspectives. [Journal Article]
    Health Policy Plan. 2020 Jun 11 [Online ahead of print]Lencucha R, Moyo T, … Makoka D
  • Tobacco is the primary export commodity in Malawi and an important contributor to foreign earnings. The entrenchment of tobacco interests within government has partly explained why Malawi has lagged in its efforts to address the health consequences of tobacco and has been a vocal opponent of global tobacco control. Despite the extensive historical and entrenched relationship between the economy o…
  • Annexin A5 prevents amyloid-β-induced toxicity in choroid plexus: implication for Alzheimer's disease. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2020 Jun 10; 10(1):9391.Bartolome F, Krzyzanowska A, … Carro E
  • In Alzheimer's disease (AD) amyloid-β (Aβ) deposits may cause impairments in choroid plexus, a specialised brain structure which forms the blood-cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) barrier. We previously carried out a mass proteomic-based study in choroid plexus from AD patients and we found several differentially regulated proteins compared with healthy subjects. One of these proteins, annexin A5, was pre…

  • Freedom and evolution in the dynamics of social systems. [Journal Article]
    Biosystems. 2020 May 25 [Online ahead of print]Bejan A
  • This is a review of recent work on how the physics of evolution accounts for the origin, changes and future of social systems. Evolution means the changes (spatial, temporal) that happen with discernible direction in time. Changes are everywhere because physical features of 'freedom to change' are in every moving and flowing system. With freedom comes evolution, and with evolution come all these …
  • Precision Physical Distancing for COVID-19: An Important Tool in Unlocking the Lockdown. [Journal Article]
    Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2020 May 18 [Online ahead of print]Bausch DG
  • In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the more routine public health measures, many countries have implemented "lockdowns"-closing borders, restricting international travel, and placing severe limitations on individual movement and group gatherings. While lockdowns may be an important tool to limit transmission, they come at a potentially great cost with regard to economic impact, …

  • Chemistry and slavery in the Scottish Enlightenment. [Journal Article]
    Ann Sci. 2020 Apr; 77(2):155-168.Stewart J
  • The Scottish Enlightenment has long been identified with abolitionism because of the writings of the moral and economic philosophers and the absence of slaves in Scotland itself. However, Scots were disproportionately represented in the ownership, management, and especially medical treatment of slaves in the British Caribbean. Sugar and cotton flowed into Glasgow and young, educated Scots looking…

  • 5-Hydroxytryptamine Receptors and Tardive Dyskinesia in Schizophrenia. [Journal Article]
    Front Mol Neurosci. 2020; 13:63.Pozhidaev IV, Paderina DZ, … Ivanova SA
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found significant associations in rs1928040 of HTR2A and for rs1801412 of X-bound HTR2C in female patients. The associations were particularly related to the orofacial type of TD. Excluding patients using relevant antagonists particularly affected rs1801412, but not rs1928040-related associations. This suggest that rs1801412 is directly or indirectly linked to the functioning of HTR2C. Further study of variants of the HTR2C gene in a larger group of male patients who were not using HTR2C antagonists is necessary in order to verify a possible functional role of this receptor.
