BACKGROUND: Cancer is a major cause of death in low A large number of studies have shown that some of the metabolic risk factors (MRFs) tend to cluster in individuals. We examined the synergistic effects of multiple MRFs and cancer risk among Iranian adults. METHODS: Among 8593 (3929 men) participants aged >/= 30 years, the self-organizing map (SOM) was applied to clustering of four MRFs including high fasting plasma glucose (HFPG), high total cholesterol (HTC), high systolic blood pressure (HSB...

Abstract Background and aims We investigated whether the presence of metabolic risk factors in one spouse is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the other spouse. Methods A total of 4390 married participants (2152 men and 2238 women free of CVD at baseline) aged ≥20 years were included in this study. The association between spousal risk factors and incident CVD was estimated separately for men and women (as index individuals) using Cox regression models, with spousa...

We investigated the association between metabolic risk factors in one spouse with incident hypertension in the other. Study sample included 1528 men and 1649 women aged >/=20 years from the Tehran lipid and glucose study with information on body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), and dyslipidemia. The hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were estimated for the association of spousal metabolic factors and incident hypertensio...

We estimated the average numbers of years lived with and without cardiovascular disease (CVD) in normal weight, overweight, and obese individuals, aged ≥30 years. A total of 7529 participants were recruited. The multi-state Markov model was used to obtain hazard ratios (HRs) for three transitions (CVD free to nonfatal CVD, CVD free to all-cause death, and nonfatal CVD to all-cause death) stratified by body mass index (BMI) categories at baseline and adjusted for confounders including sex, age, s...

We aimed to evaluate the relationship between different lifestyle patterns and blood pressure. This study is based on the national survey of the risk factors for non-communicable diseases in Iran in 2012. A total of 8244 people aged 25–70 years old have been enrolled in the survey. Clustering on the individual data of lifestyle factors (nutrition, physical activity, and smoking) were carried out using self-organizing neural network method. Multivariable regression models were used to determine t...

Since 2000, many countries have achieved considerable success in improving child survival, but localized progress remains unclear. To inform efforts towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3.2—to end preventable child deaths by 2030—we need consistently estimated data at the subnational level regarding child mortality rates and trends. Here we quantified, for the period 2000–2017, the subnational variation in mortality rates and number of deaths of neonates, infants and children unde...

Background: Burn injuries are one of the traumas seen in all parts of the world and children are usually one of the vulnerable groups. The aim of this study was to determine the factors related to unintentional burns in children, using data mining algorithms. Methods: In this hospital-based case-control study conducted in Kermanshah province, Iran, data were collected over a period of 15 months. Children under the age of 15 years old who were referred to the burn ward of Imam Khomeini Hospital, ...

Abstract Objective We conducted a systematic review of primary models to predict intensive care unit (ICU) readmission. Review methods We searched MEDLINE, PubMed, Scopus, and Embase for studies on the development of ICU readmission prediction models that are published until January 2017. Data were extracted on the source of data, participants, outcomes, candidate predictors, sample size, missing data, methods for model development, and measures of model performance and model evaluation. The qua...
