A Spatial Scan Statistic for Compound Poisson Data, Using Negative Binomial Distribution and Accounting for Population StratificationDownload
Since the interest in studying spatial relations in plant populations was raised in the 1950s, much effort has been devoted to the development of methods for spatial data analysis. One such development focused on techniques for detecting spatial clusters of cases and events in the biological...
The topic of spatial cluster detection gained attention in statistics during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Effort has been devoted to the development of methods for detecting spatial clustering of cases and events in the biological sciences, astronomy and epidemiology. More recently, research...
An examination of five spatial disease clustering methodologies for the identification of childhood cancer clusters in Alberta, CanadaDownload
Cluster detection is an important part of spatial epidemiology because it may help suggest potential factors associated with disease and thus, guide further investigation of the nature of diseases. Many different methods have been proposed to test for disease clusters. In this paper, we study...
Objectives: To conduct a systematic review of the clinical trials evaluating the role of antibiotics for prevention or treatment of meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS). Methods: We searched several electronic databases including MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, SCOPUS (until September 2013), and CENTRAL...
Background The rate of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in moderately premature infants has decreased dramatically with improved care in the neonatal intensive care unit. A low rate of this disorder was unexpectedly observed among infants treated with intravenous D-penicillamine to prevent...
Emergency Health Care Use among Sociodemographic Groups of Children Presenting to Emergency Departments for Self-Harm in Alberta
Emergency Health Care Use among Sociodemographic Groups of Children Presenting to Emergency Departments for Self-Harm in AlbertaDownload
Objective: To examine sociodemographic variations among children <18 years in (1) rates of self-harm visits to emergency departments (EDs) and (2) physician follow-up after the self-harm visit in Alberta. Methods: A retrospective, population-based cohort (2002–2011) of ED visits for self-harm by...
In this paper, generalized additive mixed models are constructed for the analysis of geographical and temporal variability of cancer ratios. In this class of models, spatially correlated random effects and temporal components are adopted. Spatio-temporal models that use intrinsic conditionally...
Low-dose heparin for prolonging the patency of peripheral intravenous catheters in adults: A Systematic review and Meta-analysisDownload
Objective: To assess evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) about the efficacy of low-dose heparin for prolonging patency of peripheral intravenous catheters in adults. Design: Systematic review and meta-analysis. Data Sources: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL and Cochrane Central...
Non-invasive versus invasive respiratory support in preterm infants at birth: systematic review and meta-analysisDownload
Objective To assess the role of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) initiated at birth for prevention of death and bronchopulmonary dysplasia in very preterm infants. Design Systematic review. Data sources PubMed, Embase, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and online...
Primary Outcomes Reporting in Trials (PORTal): a systematic review of inadequate reporting in pediatric randomized controlled trialsDownload
Objective: Conduct a systematic review of pediatric randomized controlled trials published in high impact journals to assess the reporting of primary outcomes and the psychometric properties of their measures. Study Design and Setting: Systematic review with screening and simultaneous data...
