  • Determinants of morbidity and mortality following emergency abdominal surgery in children in low-income and middle-income countries
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: BMJ Global Health. - : BMJ Publishing Group Ltd. - 2059-7908. ; 1:4
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Child health is a key priority on the global health agenda, yet the provision of essential and emergency surgery in children is patchy in resource-poor regions. This study was aimed to determine the mortality risk for emergency abdominal paediatric surgery in low-income countries globally.Methods: Multicentre, international, prospective, cohort study. Self-selected surgical units performing emergency abdominal surgery submitted prespecified data for consecutive children aged <16 years during a 2-week period between July and December 2014. The United Nation's Human Development Index (HDI) was used to stratify countries. The main outcome measure was 30-day postoperative mortality, analysed by multilevel logistic regression.Results: This study included 1409 patients from 253 centres in 43 countries; 282 children were under 2 years of age. Among them, 265 (18.8%) were from low-HDI, 450 (31.9%) from middle-HDI and 694 (49.3%) from high-HDI countries. The most common operations performed were appendectomy, small bowel resection, pyloromyotomy and correction of intussusception. After adjustment for patient and hospital risk factors, child mortality at 30 days was significantly higher in low-HDI (adjusted OR 7.14 (95% CI 2.52 to 20.23), p<0.001) and middle-HDI (4.42 (1.44 to 13.56), p=0.009) countries compared with high-HDI countries, translating to 40 excess deaths per 1000 procedures performed.Conclusions: Adjusted mortality in children following emergency abdominal surgery may be as high as 7 times greater in low-HDI and middle-HDI countries compared with high-HDI countries. Effective provision of emergency essential surgery should be a key priority for global child health agendas.

  • Bayesian methods for meta-analysis of causal relationships estimated using genetic instrumental variables
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Statistics in Medicine. - : John Wiley and Sons Inc.. - 0277-6715 .- 1097-0258. ; 29:12, s. 1298-1311

    • Genetic markers can be used as instrumental variables, in an analogous way to randomization in a clinical trial, to estimate the causal relationship between a phenotype and an outcome variable. Our purpose is to extend the existing methods for such Mendelian randomization studies to the context of multiple genetic markers measured in multiple studies, based on the analysis of individual participant data. First, for a single genetic marker in one study, we show that the usual ratio of coefficients approach can be reformulated as a regression with heterogeneous error in the explanatory variable. This can be implemented using a Bayesian approach, which is next extended to include multiple genetic markers. We then propose a hierarchical model for undertaking a meta-analysis of multiple studies, in which it is not necessary that the same genetic markers are measured in each study. This provides an overall estimate of the causal relationship between the phenotype and the outcome, and an assessment of its heterogeneity across studies. As an example, we estimate the causal relationship of blood concentrations of C-reactive protein on fibrinogen levels using data from 11 studies. These methods provide a flexible framework for efficient estimation of causal relationships derived from multiple studies. Issues discussed include weak instrument bias, analysis of binary outcome data such as disease risk, missing genetic data, and the use of haplotypes.

  • Gene-centric Association Signals for Lipids and Apolipoproteins Identified via the HumanCVD BeadChip
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Human Genetics. - : Cell Press. - 0002-9297. ; 85:5, s. 628-642
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Blood lipids are important cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors with both genetic and environmental determinants. The Whitehall II study (n = 5592) was genotyped with the gene-centric HumanCVD BeadChip (Illumina). We identified 195 SNPs in 16 genes/regions associated with 3 major lipid fractions and 2 apolipoprotein components at p < 10(-5), with the associations being broadly concordant with prior genome-wide analysis. SNPs associated with LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B were located in LDLR, PCSK9, APOB, CELSR2, HWGCR, CETP, the TOMM40-APOE-C1-C2-C4 cluster, and the APOA5-A4-C3-A1 cluster; SNPs associated with HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein AI were in CETP, LPL, LIPC, APOA5-A4-C3-A1, and ABCA1; and SNPs associated with triglycerides in GCKR, BAZIB, MLXIPL, LPL, and APOA5-A4-C3-A1. For 48 SNPs in previously unreported loci that were significant at p < 10(-4) in Whitehall II, in silico analysis including the British Women's Heart and Health Study, BRIGHT, ASCOT, and NORDIL studies (total n > 12,500) revealed previously unreported associations of SH2B3 (p < 2.2 x 10(-6)), BMPR2 (p < 2.3 x 10(-7)), BCL3/PVRL2 (flanking APOE; p < 4.4 x 10(-8)), and SMARCA4 (flanking LDLR; p < 2.5 x 10(-7)) with LDL cholesterol. Common alleles in these genes explained 6.1%-14.7% of the variance in the five lipid-related traits, and individuals at opposite tails of the additive allele score exhibited substantial differences in trait levels (e.g., > 1 mmol/L in LDL cholesterol [similar to 1 SD of the trait distribution]). These data suggest that multiple common alleles of small effect can make important contributions to individual differences in blood lipids potentially relevant to the assessment of CVD risk. These genes provide further insights into lipid metabolism and the likely effects of modifying the encoded targets therapeutically.

  • Efficient photo catalysts based on silver doped ZnO nanorods for the photo degradation of methyl orange
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Ceramics International. - Oxford : Elsevier. - 0272-8842 .- 1873-3956.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this study, the doped ZnO nanorods with silver (Ag) as photosensitive material are prepared by the solvothermal method. The structural and optical characterization is carried out by the scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive spectroscopy and UV–visible spectroscopy. The use of Ag as dopant did not alter the morphology of ZnO except sample 4 which has flower like morphology. The Ag, Zn and O are the main constituent of doped materials. The XRD revealed a hexagonal phase for ZnO and cubic phase for silver and confirmed the successful doping of Ag. The photocatalytic activity of Ag doped ZnO nanorods was investigated for the photo degradation of methyl orange. The photocatalytic measurements show that 88% degradation of methyl orange by the sample 4 within the 2 h of UV light treatment (365 nm) is significant advancement in the photocatalyst and provide the inexpensive and promising materials for the photochemical applications. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.
