Results from the algorithms tested where quite ambiguous for both experiments; however all programs consistently identified the least stable candidate gene. BestKeeper provided rankings that were consistent with the independent analysis for both experiments. When an inappropriate candidate reference gene was used to normalise the expression of a hepatically expressed target gene, the ability to detect treatment-dependent changes in target gene expression was lost for multiple groups in both experiments. Conclusion: We have highlighted the need to independently validate the results of reference gene selection programs. In addition, we have provided a reference point for those wishing to study the effects of thermal challenge and/or hormonal treatment on gene stability in Atlantic salmon and other teleost species.]]> Tue 16 Oct 2018 11:59:02 AEST ]]> Molecular characterization and analysis of a truncated serotonin receptor gene expressed in neural and reproductive tissues of abalone.

Agreement ranged from poor to excellent for laboratories using the manual RIA, while the precision of the semi-automated Liaison® system was consistently poor. Conclusions: Recent interest in the relevance of vitamin D to human health has increased demand for 25(OH)D testing and associated costs. Our results suggest clinicians and public health authorities are making decisions about treatment or changes to public health policy based on imprecise data. Clinicians, researchers and policy makers should be made aware of the imprecision of current 25(OH)D testing so that they exercise caution when using these assays for clinical practice, and when interpreting the findings of epidemiological studies based on vitamin D levels measured using these assays. Development of a rapid, reproducible, accurate and robust assay should be a priority due to interest in population based screening programs and research to inform public health policy about the amount of sun exposure required for human health. In the interim, 25(OH)D results should routinely include a statement of measurement uncertainty.]]> Tue 08 Nov 2016 15:02:29 AEST ]]> The Use of Computer Game Technology to Create Simulations with Validity for Enhancing Confidence and Competence in Technical and Non-Technical Healthcare Skills Development Thu 30 Jan 2020 10:43:47 AEST ]]> Umbilical cord blood banking, donation and cord clamp timing: Exploring health professionals’ knowledge, attitudes and practice Thu 30 Jan 2020 10:36:50 AEST ]]> Coordination during multi-agency emergency response: issues and solutions Thu 27 Jun 2019 11:36:36 AEST ]]> Improving discharge care: the potential of a new organisational intervention to improve discharge after hospitalisation for acute stroke, a controlled before–after pilot study Thu 22 Mar 2018 09:58:39 AEST ]]> What predisposes siblings to anterior cruciate ligament injury?

A cross-sectional study 6.9 mmol/L). By contrast, 9.9% had a HOMA2-IR score >2.0 (suggesting development of IR) and 11.7% (n=90) had a score between 1.5 and 2. Further, there was a positive correlation between BMI and HOMA2-IR (r=0.44, p<0.001). Participants in the upper third of HOMA2-IR scores are characterised by younger age, higher BMIs and depression as a primary diagnosis. HOMA2-IR was predicted by younger age (β=0.19, p<0.001) and higher BMI (β=0.49, p<0.001), together explaining 22% of the variance (F(2,361)=52.1, p<0.001). Conclusions Emerging IR is evident in a significant subgroup of young people presenting to primary care-based mental health services. While the major modifiable risk factor is BMI, a large proportion of the variance is not accounted for by other demographic, clinical or treatment factors. Given the early emergence of IR, secondary prevention interventions may need to commence prior to the development of full-threshold or major mood or psychotic disorders.]]> Mon 17 Jun 2019 15:26:42 AEST ]]> Identifying age-friendly behaviours for bus driver age-awareness training Mon 17 Aug 2015 16:27:39 AEST ]]> Preparedness for and Impact of Tropical Cyclone Yasi in North Queensland, Australia Mon 17 Aug 2015 09:20:40 AEST ]]> Increased caveolae density and caveolin-1 expression accompany impaired NO-mediated vasorelaxation in diet-induced obesity Mon 16 Oct 2017 11:56:53 AEST ]]> Conjugative transfer of ICESde3396 between three β-hemolytic streptococcal species Mon 12 Sep 2016 09:29:03 AEST ]]> Palliative care in paramedic practice: A retrospective cohort study 17years) attended by paramedics in the Australian state of Victoria between 1 July 2015 and 30 June 2016 where terms associated with palliative care or end of life were recorded in the patient care record. Secondary transfers including inter-hospital transport cases were excluded. RESULTS:: A total of 4348 cases met inclusion criteria. Median age was 74years (interquartile range 64-83). The most common paramedic assessments were 'respiratory' (20.1%), 'pain' (15.8%) and 'deceased' (7.9%); 74.4% ( n=3237) were transported, with the most common destination being a hospital (99.5%, n=3221). Of those with pain as the primary impression, 359 (53.9%) received an analgesic, morphine, fentanyl or methoxyflurane, and 356 (99.2%) were transported following analgesic administration. Resuscitation was attempted in 98 (29.1%) of the 337 cases coded as cardiac arrest. Among non-transported cases, there were 105 (9.6%) cases where paramedics re-attended the patient within 24h of the previous attendance. CONCLUSION:: Paramedics have a significant role in caring for patients receiving palliative care. These results should inform the design of integrated systems of care that involve ambulance services in the planning and delivery of community-based palliative care.]]> Mon 01 Apr 2019 15:40:14 AEST ]]> Resilience in Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics and its relationship with well-being and general health Fri 30 Aug 2019 16:19:43 AEST ]]> Measuring alcohol craving: Development of the Alcohol Craving Experience questionnaire Fri 30 Aug 2019 16:12:55 AEST ]]> Developing teamwork assessment: satisfying solutions for the real world Fri 28 Nov 2014 13:11:54 AEST ]]> Treatment of scabies using a tea tree oil-based gel formulation in Australian Aboriginal children: protocol for a randomised controlled trial Fri 28 Jun 2019 13:26:04 AEST ]]> A capacity-building conceptual framework for public health nutrition practice Fri 28 Jun 2019 13:10:37 AEST ]]> Perceptions of Assessment Among Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students of Four Health Sciences Disciplines Fri 27 Jul 2018 16:25:20 AEST ]]> SPANDx: A genomics pipeline for comparative analysis of large haploid whole genome re-sequencing datasets Fri 27 Jan 2017 13:12:55 AEST ]]> Recombinase polymerase amplification of infectious diseases and diagnostic applications in resource-limited settings Fri 26 Oct 2018 13:00:39 AEST ]]> ‘Better to save one life than build a seven-storied pagoda’: a qualitative study of health education for patients with acute coronary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus in Shanghai, China Fri 22 Feb 2019 09:00:43 AEST ]]> Co-Sleeping and Bed Sharing in Postnatal Maternity Units: A Review of the Literature and Critique of Clinical Practice Guidelines Fri 21 Sep 2018 12:44:23 AEST ]]> Preparing Chinese patients with comorbid heart disease and diabetes for home management: A mixed methods study Fri 18 Oct 2019 14:20:47 AEST ]]> Clinical supervision and continuing professional development for midwives in Queensland, Australia: Findings from an online survey Fri 15 May 2015 15:44:37 AEST ]]> Midwives' experiences of work-related musculoskeletal problems Fri 12 Oct 2018 15:39:25 AEST ]]> Irish occupational therapists' views of electronic assistive technology Fri 08 Apr 2016 09:50:00 AEST ]]> Securing All intraVenous devices Effectively in hospitalised patients—the SAVE trial: study protocol for a multicentre randomised controlled trial Fri 08 Apr 2016 08:52:15 AEST ]]> Does the summative assessment of real world learning using criterion-referenced assessment need to be discipline specific?
