Analysis of risk factors for Tuberculosis Recurrence using a population-based TB/HIV integrated surveillance database in Chiang Rai, ThailandDownload
TB recurrence is defined as a new episode of bacteriologically positive TB in a patient previously declared “successfully completed treatment.” Our study objective was to identify risk factors of recurrence among HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected TB patients. Based on a population-based TB/HIV...
The prevalence of childhood obesity has increased dramatically over the last three decades in Canada with substantial consequences for the physical, mental, and economic wellbeing of the population. The overarching objective of this thesis was to examine the various aspects of childhood obesity...
Differential expression of hypothalamic metabolic and inflammatory genes in response to short-term calorie restriction in juvenile obese- and lean-prone JCR ratsDownload
Background: Childhood obesity is an important early predictor of adult obesity and associated comorbidities. Common forms of obesity are underpinned by both environmental and genetic factors. However, the rising prevalence of obesity in genetically stable populations strongly suggests that...
Background When gambling opportunities are made available to the public in a given jurisdiction, some individuals participate occasionally and others more frequently. Among frequent gamblers, some individuals develop problematic involvement and some do not. This study addresses the association...
Effect of obesity on short- and long-term mortality postcoronary revascularization: a meta-analysis.Download
Objective: Overweight and obesity are often assumed to be risk factors for postprocedural mortality in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, recent studies have described an “obesity paradox”—a neutral or beneficial association between obesity and mortality postcoronary...
Effects of High-Intensity Aerobic Interval Training on Cardiovascular Disease Risk and Health-related Quality of Life in Testicular Cancer Survivors: The HIITTS TrialDownload
Background: Testicular cancer (TC) survivors (TCS) are an understudied, high-risk group susceptible to late-onset treatment-related cardiovascular disease (CVD), psychosocial, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) deficits in the years following treatment. Importantly, despite having the...
Influenza pandemic occurs when a novel influenza virus subtype for which humans do not have sufficient immunity emerges and spreads quickly from person-to-person worldwide. Influenza pandemics result in serious consequences on human health and economy. In April 2009, the World Health Organization...
Ethnic and Regional Differences in Prevalence and Correlates of Chronic Diseases and Risk Factors in Northern CanadaDownload
"Introduction: We investigated ethnic and geographic variations in major chronic diseases and risk factors in northern Canada, an area that is undergoing rapid changes in its social, cultural, and physical environments. Methods: Self-report data were obtained from the population-based Canadian...
Food choices and practices during pregnancy of immigrant and Aboriginal women in Canada: a study protocolDownload
Background: Facilitating the provision of appropriate health care for immigrant and Aboriginal populations in Canada is critical for maximizing health potential and well-being. Numerous reports describe heightened risks of poor maternal and birth outcomes for immigrant and Aboriginal women. Many...
Chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis and cancer are now the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Inflammatory processes and oxidative stress underlie the pathogenesis of these pathological conditions. Bioactive peptides derived from food proteins have been evaluated for...
