Abstract Background Routine vaccination for children drastically reduces measles cases. Nonetheless, the global resurgence of measles since 2018 highlights the need for evaluating vaccine-induced immunity in an era of high vaccination coverage, especially in international travelers. This study aims to identify high-risk persons via analyzing the impact of age and different vaccination schedules on seroprevalence of measles in a country with high vaccination coverage, attempting to provide sugges...

(1) Background: Dynapenia is defined as lower muscle strength alone. Only a few studies have investigated muscle quality in subjects with dynapenia. (2) Methods: The muscle quality, characterized by texture parameters of biceps brachii, triceps brachii, rectus femoris, and medial gastrocnemius muscles, were collected using ultrasonography. The risk of dynapenia was assessed by the multiple logistic regression model. (3) Results: There were a total of 36 participants (72.7 ± 5.8 yrs, 1:1 case-con...

High prevalence of child underweight and stunting in high-altitude areas has often been reported. However, most previous studies on this topic were cross-sectional. Another critical concern is that using the World Health Organization (WHO) Child Growth Standards to evaluate child growth in high-altitude areas may lead to overestimations of underweight and stunting. Our study aimed to evaluate the long-term growth pattern of children (3 to 18 years) above the altitude of 3500 m in Ladakh, India. ...

BACKGROUND&AIMS: There are sparse data on the epidemiology of fatty liver in the elderly Asian population. We evaluated for predictors of fatty liver and high risk of advanced fibrosis in a community-based elderly population. METHODS: A total of 1091 participants (mean age was 74.6+/-6.3 years) were enrolled from 2017 to 2018. Subjects with age younger than 65 years, alcoholism, history of hepatitis B and hepatitis C were excluded. Fatty liver was diagnosed with abdominal ultrasound by using ult...

Background: The number of breast cancer patients has increased each year, and the demand for breast cancer detection has become quite large. There are many common breast cancer diagnostic tools. The latest automated whole breast ultrasound (ABUS) technology can obtain a complete breast tissue structure, which improves breast cancer detection technology. However, due to the large amount of ABUS image data, manual interpretation is time-consuming and labor-intensive. If there are lesions in multip...

BACKGROUND: Immunotherapy for Alzheimer's disease(AD) has gained momentum in recent years. One of the concerns over its application pertains to Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) from population average and specific subgroup differences, as such a therapy is imperative for health decisionmakers to allocate limited resources. However, this sort of CEA model considering heterogeneous population with risk factors adjustment has been rarely addressed. METHODS: We aimed to show the heterogeneity of CE...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an emerging epidemic worldwide and is regarded as a hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Only a few studies have discussed the biological features associated with quantitative assessment of ultrasound for characterizing NAFLD. Our aim was to delineate relevant metabolic characteristics using a new quantitative tool, the ultrasound quantitative diagnostic index (QDI). A total of 394 ultrasound data were analyzed to extract texture-feature...

Few studies have investigated the association between selenium and metabolic syndrome. This study aimed to explore the associations between the serum selenium level and metabolic syndrome as well as examining each metabolic factor. In this case-control study, the participants were 1165 adults aged ≥40 (65.8 ± 10.0) years. Serum selenium was measured by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry. The associations between serum selenium and metabolic syndrome were examined by multivariate logist...

: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of home health care (HHC) for disabled patients.We conducted a nationwide population-based retrospective cohort study. A total of 5838 disabled patients with HHC were identified to match by propensity score with 15,829 disabled patients without HHC receiving tube or catheter care (tracheostomy tube, nasogastric tube, urinary catheter, cystostomy tube, nephrostomy tube) or stage 3 or 4 pressure sore care from the Taiwanese National Health Insuran...
