Although integrated primary care (IPC) is growing, several barriers remain. Better understanding of behavioral health professionals' (BHPs') readiness for and engagement in IPC behaviors could improve IPC research and training. This study developed measures of IPC behaviors and stage of change. The sample included 319 licensed, practicing BHPs...

Precise duplication of the human genome is constantly threatened by a variety of genotoxic insults. During S-phase, those damaged template bases could be overcome by DNA damage tolerance (DDT) pathways that bypass such obstacles instead of repairing them, allowing replicative machinery to resume beyond the offending lesions. Two distinct...

Aging leads to central artery stiffening and associated hemodynamic sequelae. Because healthy arteries exhibit differential geometry, composition, and mechanical behaviors along the central vasculature, we sought to determine whether wall structure and mechanical function differ across five vascular regions-the ascending and descending thoracic...

The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and outcomes of incidental breast lesions detected on nonbreast specific cross-sectional imaging examinations. A retrospective review of the medical records was performed to identify all patients without a known history of breast cancer, who had an incidentally discovered breast lesion detected...

The stand-alone pathogenicity of fowl adenoviruses (FAdVs) had long been disputed, given the ubiquity of the viruses versus sporadic outbreaks, and variation between experimental studies. However, a globally emerging trend of FAdV-associated diseases has marked the past two decades, with hepatitis-hydropericardium syndrome mainly in Asia besides...

The purpose of the study was to examine a possibility of functional assessment of the great saphenous vein (GSV) with the help of a day orthostatic loading test for prognosis of restoration of the function of the GSV afterremoving its varicose tributaries in patients with primary varicose veins. Our prospective study included a total of sixty-five...

Africa is the birthplace of the species Homo sapiens, and Africans today are genetically more diverse than other populations of the world. However, the processes that underpinned the evolution of African populations remain largely obscure. Only a handful of late Pleistocene African fossils (∼50-12 Ka) are known, while the more numerous sites...
