Elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is a major modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), a leading cause of death in the United States. Despite clinical practice guidelines aimed at facilitating LDL-C control, many Veterans do not achieve guideline-recommended LDL-C levels.

Lessons learned when innovations go awry: a baseline description of a behavioral trial-the Enhancing Fitness in Older Overweight Veterans with Impaired Fasting Glucose study.

Hide Abstract
Individuals diagnosed with impaired glucose tolerance (i.e., prediabetes) are at increased risk for developing diabetes. We proposed a clinical trial with a novel adaptive randomization designed to examine the impact of a home-based physical activity (PA) counseling intervention on metabolic risk in prediabetic elders. This manuscript details the lessons learned relative to recruitment, study design, and implementation of a 12-month randomized controlled PA counseling trial. A detailed discussion on how we responded to unforeseen challenges is provided. A total of 302 older patients with prediabetes were randomly assigned to either PA counseling or usual care. A novel adaptive design that reallocated counseling intensity based on self-report of adherence to PA was initiated but revised when rates of non-response were lower than projected. This study presents baseline participant characteristics and discusses unwelcome adaptations to a highly innovative study design to increase PA and enhance glucose metabolism when the best-laid plans went awry.

Individual progress toward self-selected goals among older adults enrolled in a physical activity counseling intervention.

Hide Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine what happens to goals over the course of a physical activity counseling trial in older veterans. At baseline, participants (N = 313) identified 1 health-related goal and 1 walking goal for their participation in the study and rated where they perceived themselves to be relative to that goal at the current time. They rated their current status on these same goals again at 6 and 12 mo. Growth-curve analyses were used to examine longitudinal change in perceived goal status. Although both the intervention and control groups demonstrated improvement in their perceived proximity to their health-related and walking goals (L = 1.19, p < .001), the rates of change were significantly greater in the intervention group (? = -.30, p < .05). Our results demonstrate that this physical activity counseling intervention had a positive impact on self-selected goals over the course of the intervention.

Seroprevalence of antibodies to hepatitis E virus in two large communities in Havana, Cuba.

Hide Abstract
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is an important cause of acute viral hepatitis in tropical and sub-tropical regions that occurs both as epidemic episodes and sporadic cases. The aim of this investigation was to estimate the prevalence of total immunoglobulin (Ig) anti-hepatitis E virus (anti-HEV) and the risk factors associated to two communities in Havana City. Serum samples (n=469) obtained from healthy individuals with no history of viral hepatitis were screened for total anti-HEV by enzyme immunoassay (EIA). An overall prevalence of 10% (47/469) (95% CI; 7.52-13.19%) was obtained. Higher anti-HEV prevalence was found in the municipality of Marianao (12.1%) compared to Playa (7.1%). Analysis of risk factors revealed a significant association of total anti-HEV prevalence in age group 41-60 years old, with a risk ratio of 3.21 (95% CI: 1.09-9.7) (P=0.01). No relation was found between anti-HEV and other variables such as gender, risk occupations, surgery and transfusions. The detection of total anti-HEV in individuals with no overt acute hepatitis suggests the existence of sub-clinical or anicteric HEV infection in these municipalities.

Responding to the death of a resident in aged care facilities: perspectives of staff and residents.
Geriatr Nurs
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A qualitative study using individual semistructured interviews was undertaken to explore the perceptions and experiences of 23 aged care residents with mild dementia concerning the deaths of coresidents. The views of 25 facility staff members were also explored. The study was based in 3 aged residential facilities in Victoria, Australia. Interview data indicated that residents and staff had differing views. Residents reported that the impact of the death of a coresident was much less than staff members thought. Residents generally wanted to be told about the death of someone they knew and considered attempts to hide the death and the removal of the body both unnecessary and disrespectful. Both groups agreed that the celebration of the life of a resident was important, although they differed in their preferences for the way this is done. These findings have implications for staff education and practice.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
