JOURNAL ARTICLE
Lu Sun, Xinxu Chen, Fei Li, Shengchun Liu
BACKGROUND: /Purpose: Cuproptosis may play a significant role in breast cancer (BC). We aimed to investigate the prognostic impact of cuproptosis-related lncRNAs in BC. METHODS: Consensus clustering analysis categorized TCGA-BRCA samples into 3 clusters, followed by survival and immune analyses of the 3 clusters. LASSO-COX analysis was performed on cuproptosis-related lncRNAs differentially expressed in BC to construct a BC prognostic model. Gene Ontology/Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (GO/KEGG) enrichment, immune, and drug prediction analyses were performed on the high-risk and low-risk groups...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Curative technologies improve patient's survival and/or quality of life but increase financial burdens. Effective prevention benefits all three. We summarize estimation methods and provide examples of how much money is spent per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) or life year (LY) on treating a catastrophic illness under a lifetime horizon and how many QALYs/LYs and lifetime medical costs (LMC) could be potentially saved by prevention. METHODS: We established cohorts by interlinkages of Taiwan's nation-wide databases including National Health Insurance...

BACKGROUND: Septic shock is a lethal disease, and identifying high-risk patients through noninvasive and widely available biomarkers can help improve global outcomes. While the clinical impact of chloride levels on critically ill patients remains unclear, this study aims to investigate the association between hypochloremia and mortality following ICU admission among septic shock patients. METHODS: This is an analysis of data stored in the databases of Medical Information Mart for Intensive Care IV (MIMIC-IV)...

BACKGROUND: /purpose: The use of high-flow nasal cannulas (HFNC) in patients admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) has gradually increased worldwide; however, details on clinical efficacy remain limited in Taiwan. Therefore, we explored the clinical characteristics and outcomes of pediatric patients using HFNC in the PICU. METHODS: Medical records were retrospectively collected from pediatric patients (aged <18 years) who received HFNC support from December 2021 to January 2023 in the PICU of a medical center...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Vaccination is the most important preventive measure to protect people from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Governments worldwide have prioritized their vaccination policy against COVID-19. However, there is a lack of relevant research on Taiwanese attitudes and considerations toward COVID-19 vaccination. This study aimed to investigate the cognition, preventive behaviors, and attitudes toward COVID-19 vaccines that influence people's willingness to get vaccinated in Taiwan...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with hypervascular spinal tumors may have severe blood loss during tumor resection, which increases the risks of perioperative morbidity and mortality. However, the preoperative evaluation of tumor vascularity may be challenging; moreover, the reliability of the data obtained in conventional preoperative noninvasive imaging is debatable. In this study, we compared conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and subtraction computed tomography angiography (CTA) in terms of their performance in vascularity evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin D deficiency is associated with mortality and morbidity in critically ill patients. This study investigated the safety and effectiveness of enteral high-dose vitamin D supplementation in intensive care unit (ICU) patients in Asia. METHODS: This was a multicenter, prospective, randomized-controlled study. Eligible participants with vitamin D deficiency were randomly assigned to the control or vitamin D supplementation group. In the vitamin D supplementation group, the patients received 569,600 IU vitamin D...

BACKGROUND: Current guidelines advocate for maintaining BP level below 180/105 mmHg during EVT, determining the safe lower boundary remains primarily consensus-driven by experts. This study aims to delve into the correlation between various targets of lower boundary for systolic and diastolic BP (SBP and DBP) during EVT and 3-month functional outcomes. METHODS: A cohort study was conducted across two EVT-capable centers, enrolling patients with large artery occlusion undergoing EVT within 8 h of stroke onset...

BACKGROUND: Patient-centered care (PCC) is a crucial objective for enhancing healthcare in the 21st century. PCC has demonstrated effectiveness in caring for patients with chronic conditions. However, the process from PCC to patient outcomes has not been thoroughly studied, particularly for patients with chronic hepatitis. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between PCC and the outcomes of hepatitis patients and determine the key mediator in the connection between PCC and outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Whether adjuvant chemotherapy should be different for patients with stage II and III gastric cancer is unknown. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the effects of adjuvant chemotherapy on the outcomes of 140 and 256 patients with stage II and III gastric cancer, respectively, between January 2008 and December 2018. Chemotherapies were stratified as fluoropyrimidine plus platinum versus fluoropyrimidine alone, tegafur/gimeracil/octeracil (S-1)-containing versus non-S-1-containing regimens, and S-1 plus cisplatin versus S-1 alone...

BACKGROUND: Coffee and tea consumption has been linked to dementia. However, it remained unknown how sex and vascular risk factors modify the association. We aimed to investigate the association of coffee and tea consumption with dementia and whether sex and vascular comorbidities modified the association. METHODS: We included 278 elderly patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 102 patients with vascular dementia (VaD) from three hospitals; controls (N = 468) were recruited during the same period...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Taiwan is one of the countries with the lowest birth rate in the world. We investigated factors associated with the time to diagnosis and treatment of infertility in Taiwan. METHODS: The study was conducted through an online questionnaire in December 2021. The questionnaire was adapted from a previously published multinational survey, and culture-specific questions were added. 91 infertile patients and 89 partners of patients in Taiwan, aged 20- to 45- year-old, were included...

The purpose of this study is to establish a deep learning automatic assistance diagnosis system for benign and malignant classification of mediastinal lesions in endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) images. EBUS images are in the form of video and contain multiple imaging modes. Different imaging modes and different frames can reflect the different characteristics of lesions. Compared with previous studies, the proposed model can efficiently extract and integrate the spatiotemporal relationships between different modes and does not require manual selection of representative frames...

BACKGROUND: /Purpose: The Pediatric Eating Assessment Tool-10 (Pedi-EAT-10) is a caregiver-administrated subjective questionnaire for evaluating swallowing and feeding disorders among children. This study translated the Pedi-EAT-10 into Traditional Chinese and tested the translated version's reliability and validity. METHODS: Pedi-EAT-10 was translated into Traditional Chinese by experts and finalized after discussion and testing. A total of 168 participants, consisting of 32 children with dysphagia from a tertiary medical center and 136 healthy controls from its Children Care Center for Employees, were recruited...
