KOL-Index: 134
KOL-Index: 24 Risk prediction scores are important tools to support clinical decision-making for patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The objective of this paper was to validate the 4C mortality score, originally developed in the United Kingdom, for a Canadian population, and to examine its performance over time. We conducted an external validation study within a registry of COVID-19 positive ...

KOL-Index: 11 A prospective ultrasound study was performed between 18 and 38 weeks' gestation on 29 fetuses in a high-risk population, defined by the presence of structural anomalies, in order to investigate the usefulness of fetal ear measurements in the prenatal prediction of chromosomal abnormality. The prevalence of abnormal chromosomes was 34 per cent. The sensitivity (SE), specificity (SC), positive ...

KOL-Index: 9 Extra care housing enables older people to remain in their ‘own home’, while providing appropriate housing and access to health and social care services that are responsive to their needs. This type of provision is very much in line with the government policy of fostering people's sense of control and independence, and is a priority area for expansion. We explored the current levels of ...

While the NAFTA renegotiations and WTO shake-up are not taking place under circumstances Canada ...

KOL-Index: 4 The boom in self-publishing has created a market of hundreds of thousands of new books a year. The Library of Congress doesn't catalog most of these. Is it fair to dismiss these books as "vanity publications," or are there some valuable resources in this book glut for collections-development librarians to explore? Are there sensible ways of acquiring these books? And how do Web searches ...
KOL-Index: 2 Cancers that have spread to the liver from the primary cancer location (liver metastases) that cannot be removed surgically (unresectable) can be treated with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. Previous research has shown that tumours often have abnormal blood vessels that may reduce the effect of radiation therapy. New drugs, known as "anti-angiogenic" drugs have been shown in animal ...

KOL-Index: 2 Many cancer patients, especially those with pancreatic cancer, suffer from severe lower back / upper abdominal pain. This pain is often poorly managed with standard treatments; the doses of painkiller required often induce side effects, whereas nerve block procedures (where a needle is deeply inserted into the back) are both invasive and of limited benefit.This clinical trial investigates a ...

KOL-Index: 2 Palliative radiotherapy is radiation treatment given to help reduce pain or discomfort, or other symptoms related to cancer. This is used commonly for cancer that has spread to the bones and brain, and for many other primary cancers that are too advanced to be cured, including lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and head and neck cancer. The benefits of palliative radiotherapy for advanced liver ...
