Extrapyramidal side effects (EPSEs) are serious potentially reversible side effects of antipsychotic and other medications that can cause distress for patients. A core principle of palliative care involves optimising quality of life. If side effects of medications are burdensome, it is imperative that we address this issue. The aim of the study was to determine and describe the burden of EPSEs in a specialist inpatient unit.Consenting patients who met inclusion criteria were assessed for EPSE…

Due to the mechanistic role of myostatin and follistatin in modulating muscle mass, shifts in the follistatin to myostatin ratio (F:M) may help explain changes in muscular size in response to resistance training (RT). The present study examined whether differential responses in follistatin and myostatin occur based on the amount of active musculature in a RT program in middle-aged men.Forty middle-aged men (age = 46.5 ± 3.1 years) were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 groups, upper-body RT (UB; n …

Postmenopausal women have a higher prevalence of hypertension than age-match men. Evidence from animal studies have demonstrated the antihypertensive effects of pumpkin seed oil (PSO). We examined the effects of PSO supplementation on vascular function and heart rate variability (HRV) in postmenopausal women with elevated blood pressure (BP).Participants were randomly assigned to either a PSO (n = 12) or a placebo group (n = 11). Participants in the PSO group consumed 3 g/day of PSO. Brachial…

Aims To explore the integration and delivery of oncology led referrals to palliative care (PC) by examining physician attitudes and referral practices. Methods An online survey was circulated to oncologists and PC physicians in Ireland. Results The study (N = 100) comprised sixty-nine oncologists (69%) and thirty-one PC physicians (31%). Ninety-two(92%) believe patients with advanced cancer should receive concurrent treatment, however only 53% of oncologists(N = 37) routinely refer. Regarding…

The "Preparing Cybersecurity Advanced Professionals for Teaching Next Generation of Cybersecurity students (CyberTeach)" project will prepare 30 experienced cybersecurity professionals, currently enrolled in a doctoral program in cybersecurity, to become effective educators at the high school (dual-enrollment), community college, and 4-year university levels. There is currently a shortage of cybersecurity educators and academic jobs in cybersecurity vastly outnumber applicants. Only 20% of tr…

Digital evidence is a fundamental element in cyber-forensics and judicial processes. However, the work of forensic examiners is becoming more challenging as the volume digital content and files increases. In this paper, we use machine learning especially deep learning to detect stealthy watermarks in various types of files. We use a black box approach which is different from current steganographic and cryptographic methods to find patterns of candidate file locations for hidden data We studie…

The present study examined the effects of a 12-week low intensity resistance exercise training (LIRET) regimen on heart rate variability (HRV), strength and body composition in obese postmenopausal women. Participants were randomly assigned to 12 weeks of either LIRET (n= 10) or non-exercising control group (n= 10). HRV, leg muscle strength and body composition were measured before and after 12 weeks. There were significant decreases (P < 0.05) in sympathovagal balance (LnLF/LnHF) and sympath…

Pain is a common symptom in patients who survive cancer and in those who live with progressive advanced disease. Evidence from meta-analyses suggests that pain remains poorly controlled for a large proportion of patients; barriers to good management include poor assessment of pain, inadequate support for patient self-management and late or inadequate access to strong opioid analgesia in those with advanced disease.The European Pain Federation (EFIC) established a Task Force in 2017 which conv…

Falls are a major health care concern in individuals with Alzheimer disease (AD) and their caregivers. Vestibular impairment is a known risk factor for falls, and individuals with AD have been shown to have an increased prevalence of vestibular loss compared with age-matched controls. Vestibular physical therapy (VPT) is effective in improving balance and reducing fall risk in cognitively-intact persons with vestibular impairment. However, the effectiveness of VPT in improving balance and red…

Project Summary Early detection of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is vital if treatments are to be most effective, yet for myriad reasons, a staggering number of older Americans do not receive diagnostic services. Recent technological breakthroughs show considerable promise to identify biomarkers for AD, but nonetheless still require costly and often invasive in-person testing. What is needed is a new approach that can rival current technologies in terms of diagnostic accuracy, while also permittin…
