Trajectories of participation in daily life among individuals newly diagnosed with cancer: A 5-month longitudinal study by Allison J L’Hotta

CONCLUSION: People newly diagnosed with cancer experience impaired participation, but they are infrequently referred to supportive services such as rehabilitation. The use of PROs to assess participation, physical function, and mental health can promote access to supportive care services by identifying patients who may benefit from rehabilitation beyond those identified through routine clinical care.

Examining the Relationship Between HIV-Related Stigma and the Health and Wellbeing of Children and Adolescents Living with HIV: A Systematic Review by Abbie Robinson

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) affects millions of people globally. The associated stigma remains a challenge for individuals living with HIV and children and adolescents face the additional challenge of withstanding the peer, pubertal and identity challenges associated with growing up. The current systematic review aimed to define and explore the major stigma-related challenges of children…

Pulsed Focused Ultrasound Reduces Hippocampal Volume Loss and Improves Behavioral Performance in the Kainic Acid Rat Model of Epilepsy by Po-Chun Chu

Focused ultrasound (FUS) has the potential to modulate regional brain excitability and possibly aid seizure control; however, effects on behavior of FUS used as a seizure therapy are unknown. This study explores behavioral effects and hippocampal restoration induced by pulsed FUS in a kainic acid (KA) animal model of temporal lobe epilepsy. Twenty-nine male Sprague-Dawley…

Anionic Regulation toward Bi3+ Selective Occupation for Full-Spectrum White Light Emission by Sheng Wu

An activator’s selective occupation of a host is of great significance for designing high-quality white light-emitting diode phosphors, while achieving a full-spectrum single-phase white light emission phosphor is challenging. In this study, a boron phosphate solid-solution Na(2)Y(2)(BO(3))(2-x)(PO(4))(x)O:0.005 Bi^(3+) (NYB(2-x)P(x)O:0.005 Bi^(3+)) white phosphor was designed by selectively occupying Bi^(3+) activators in the mixed anionic groups. The…
