Data are limited on temporal trends in outcomes of hospitalization and surgery in pediatric Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Thus, we evaluated the U.S. nationwide temporal trends for incidence of hospitalization and intestinal resection along with associated resource utilization. We used the Kids' Inpatient Database (1997, 2000, 2003, 2006, and 2009) to identify all admissions for children aged 18 years or younger with a primary CD (International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision [ICD-9]: 555.X) or UC (ICD-9: 556.X) diagnosis or a secondary CD or UC diagnosis and procedural code of intestinal resection. Poisson regression analysis was performed to evaluate time trends in the incidence of hospitalization, intestinal resection, and hospital resource utilization. The annual incidence of hospitalization was 5.7 and 3.5 per 100,000 children for CD and UC, respectively, with significant increases over time for CD (annual percent increase [API], 3.8%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 3.0%-4.5%) and UC (API, 4.5%; 95% CI, 4.3%-4.7%). Median hospital days per hospitalization for CD and UC remained stable, whereas median charge per hospitalization increased for CD (API, 4.1%; 95% CI, 2.6%-5.6%) and UC (API, 4.7%; ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
