2. Use of Complementary and Alternative Medicine among Children Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Match Strength: 7.965
This study examined the prevalence of the use of different types of conventional, complementary and alternative therapies by children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Of 112 families surveyed, 74% were using complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for their child with ASD. CAM use was most strongly associated with parent report of child's diagnosis. Most CAM was reported by families to be either helpful or without effect, but not harmful. The main reasons for choosing CAM were related to concerns with the safety and side effects of prescribed medications. Conventional ... Read More »

3. The use of complementary and alternative medicine in children with chronic medical conditions.
Match Strength: 6.444
OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to examine whether progressive medical conditions lead to greater use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as compared with more stable conditions, to see whether disease severity influences CAM use, and to identify the main motivations behind CAM use. METHODS: Subjects were selected from outpatient clinics at Hotel Dieu Hospital. Surveys were conducted by mail and telephone. Medical diagnosis and severity were obtained from medical files. Statistical tests included chi, Kruskal-Wallis, and correlations. RESULTS: One hundred ninety-four ... Read More »

4. Alternatives for protecting privacy while respecting patient care and public health needs.
Match Strength: 5.979
This paper begins with a discussion of the value of privacy, especially for medical records in an age of advancing technology. I then examine three alternative approaches to protection of medical records: reliance on governmental guidelines, the use of corporate self-regulation, and my own third hybrid view on how to maintain a presumption in favor of privacy with respect to medical information, safeguarding privacy as vigorously and comprehensively as possible, without sacrificing the benefits of new information technology in medicine. None of the three models I examine are unproblematic, yet ... Read More »

OBJECTIVE: Increased attention has been focused on the growing use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM); however, few studies have included children in the general US population. The present study investigated children's visits to CAM providers and factors associated with these visits. METHODS: Analysis of cross-sectional data from the 2001 United Way Outcomes and Community Impact Program telephone survey, a representative sample of households in San Diego County, California. We selected households with children younger than 19 years of age (N = 1104). Parents reported on children's ... Read More »

7. Life after the women's health initiative: evaluation of postmenopausal symptoms and use of alternative therapies after discontinuation of hormone therapy.
Match Strength: 4.767
STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine the number of women who have menopausal symptoms after discontinuing hormone therapy, to determine how many of these women subsequently require nonhormonal alternatives to manage their symptoms, and to assess the effectiveness of those therapies. DESIGN: One-year retrospective study. SETTING: Department of Family Medicine outpatient clinic at a university medical center. PATIENTS: From 378 postmenopausal women who discontinued hormone therapy between August 1, 2002, and August 31, 2003, we randomly selected 78 using electronic medical records to provide a sample ...

Match Strength: 3.994
OBJECTIVE: To explore Bambara language terminology and classification for locally available antimicrobial medicines in order to better target promotional messages and improve evaluation measures in Bougouni District, Mali. METHODS: Mothers (n = 20) and drug vendors (n = 15) were asked to freelist medicines used to treat childhood illnesses, and to identify all medicines that corresponded to each of the listed terms from an array of medicines displayed with their packaging. RESULTS: Each Bambara language medicine term can refer to numerous modern medicines, and each modern medicine has several ... Read More »

9. Histopathological types of breast cancer in Nigerian women: a 12-year review (1993-2004).
Match Strength: 3.717
To determine the commonest histological types of breast cancer in Nigerian women in Edo State and the mean age at diagnosis, we reviewed the histological slides of breast cancer received in the pathology department of University of Benin Teaching Hospital over a twelve-year period (January 1993-December 2004). The clinical data was obtained from the original request form and case notes where necessary. The mean age of the patients was 45.7 (SD= 13.4, SEM = 0.7). Invasive ductal carcinoma (not otherwise specified) constituted the majority of breast cancer accounting for 75.5% while papillary ... Read More »

10. Evidence for symptom management in the child with cancer.
Match Strength: 3.594
The use of complementary/alternative medicine (CAM) has been well documented among children with cancer. This report summarizes the research evidence on the role of CAM therapies for prevention and treatment of the most commonly reported cancer-related symptoms and late effects among children with cancer. Small clinical trials document evidence of effectiveness for select therapies, such as acupuncture or ginger for nausea and vomiting, TRAUMEEL S for mucositis, and hypnosis and imagery for pain and anxiety. Several relatively small clinical trials of varying quality have been conducted on ... Read More »

12. The promise of pharmacogenetics: assessing the prospects for disease and patient stratification.
Match Strength: 2.543
Pharmacogenetics is an emerging biotechnology concerned with understanding the genetic basis of drug response, and promises to transform the development, marketing and prescription of medicines. This paper is concerned with analysing the move towards segmented drug markets, which is implicit in the commercial development of pharmacogenetics. It is claimed that in future who gets a particular drug will be determined by their genetic make up. Drawing on ideas from the sociology of expectations we examine how pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are constructing, responding to and realising ... Read More »
