Sep 16th, 2021 - Type 2 diabetes (T2D), with its prevalence and disability-causing nature, is a challenge for primary health care. Most patients with T2D are multimorbid, i.e. have one or more long-term diseases in addition to T2D. Multimorbidity may play a role in the achievement of T2D treatment targets, but is still not fully understood. The aims of the present cross-sectional, register-based study were to e...

Journal of Opioid Management; Ghosh A, Naskar C et. al.

Sep 15th, 2021 - Availability and access to opioid agonist treatment (OAT) are limited despite its evidence of effectiveness in treating opioid use disorders (OUDs). COVID-19 pandemic has inadvertently exacerbated the problems of restricted access to OAT and, at the same time, has increased odds of harm due to opioid use. We examined (a) adaptations conceived or implemented in the buprenorphine (BPN)-based OAT ...

https://doi.org/10.5055/jom.2021.0644
Journal of Opioid Management; Jamshidi N, Athavale A et. al.

Sep 15th, 2021 - Urine drug screens (UDS) assist in clinical planning and assessment of adherence in opioid agonist treatment (OAT). Urine drug screens may also be used in criminal justice and child protection settings. Buprenorphine (BPN) UDS testing is complex. Immunoassay often does not detect BPN and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is needed. A limited understanding of testing can negatively in...

International Journal of Gynaecology and Obstetrics: the ... Valencia CM, Mol BW et. al.

Sep 15th, 2021 - Iatrogenic preterm birth is a planned delivery that occurs before 37 weeks of gestation due to maternal and/or fetal causes. However, in some cases, such deliveries also occur with no apparent medical indication. The increasing numbers of iatrogenic preterm deliveries worldwide have led researchers to identify modifiable causes that allow the formulation of preventive strategies that could impa...
