A comparison of chronic conditions and their risk factors between women living in major cities and other cities in Indonesia 15 years old participating in the fourth wave of the Indonesia Family Life Survey. Chronic condition risk factors – systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP and DBP), body mass index (BMI), and tobacco use – among women in four major cities in Indonesia (Jakarta, Surabaya, Medan, and Bandung) were compared against other cities. Fractional polynomial regression models were applied to examine the association between living in the major cities and SBP, DBP, BMI, and tobacco use. The models were also adjusted for age, education, employment status, migration status, ethnic groups, and religion. The patterns of SBP, DBP, and BMI were plotted and contrasted between groups of cities. Results: Chronic condition prevalence was higher for women in major cities than in contrasting cities (p<0.005). Living in major cities increased the risk of having higher SBP, DBP, BMI and being a current smoker. Chronic disease risk factors in major cities were evident from younger ages. Conclusions: Women residing in Indonesia’s major cities have a higher risk of developing chronic conditions, starting at younger ages. The findings highlight the challenges inherent in providing long-term healthcare with its associated cost within major Indonesian cities and the importance of chronic disease prevention programmes targeting women at an early age.]]> Wed 25 May 2016 16:48:03 EST ]]> Prevalence and geographic distribution of edentulism among older Ghanaians Wed 25 May 2016 16:48:01 EST ]]> Race to the bottom: the destruction of the wages and conditions of US auto workers Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:26 EST ]]> Fatty acid profile of pregnant women with asthma Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:24 EST ]]> Quality factor enhancement of an atomic force microscope micro-cantilever using piezoelectric shunt control Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:23 EST ]]> Grazing constants are not constant: microzooplankton grazing is a function of phytoplankton production in an Australian lagoon Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:21 EST ]]> Healthy eating and active living for diabetes in primary care networks (HEALD-PCN): rationale, design, and evaluation of a pragmatic controlled trial for adults with type 2 diabetes Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:20 EST ]]> Rational homogeneous algebras 1, then A2 = 0.]]> Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:19 EST ]]> Reactivity study of two coal chars produced in a drop-tube furnace and a pulverized coal injection rig Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:16 EST ]]> A pilot randomized controlled trial of the feasibility of a self-directed coping skills intervention for couples facing prostate cancer: rationale and design Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:07 EST ]]> Feasibility of a protein-enriched diet after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding: results from a pilot intervention Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:04 EST ]]> Design and control of a novel non-raster scan pattern for fast scanning probe microscopy Wed 25 May 2016 16:41:03 EST ]]> Strangulated intercostal liver herniation subsequent to blunt trauma.

Cell-free supernatant was collected after 1 h for neutrophil elastase (NE) and matrix metalloproteinase- (MMP-) 9 measurements or after 24 h for CXCL8 release. Results: Constitutive NE was enhanced in AGood neutrophils compared to HC. fMLF stimulated neutrophils from ASubopt but not AGood produced 50% of HC levels. fMLF induced MMP-9 was impaired in ASubopt and AGood compared to HC. fMLF stimulated CXCL8 but not MMP-9 was positively correlated with FEV1 and FEV1/FVC. ASubopt and AGood responded similarly to other stimuli. Conclusions: Circulating neutrophils are different in asthma; however, this is likely to be related to airflow limitation rather than asthma control.]]> Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:14 EST ]]> Effect of clarification on the polyphenolic compound content and antioxidant activity of commercial apple juices Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:13 EST ]]> Vascular assessment techniques of podiatrists in Australia and New Zealand: a web-based survey Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:09 EST ]]> Nutritional solutions to reduce risks of negative health impacts of air pollution Mon 30 May 2016 16:00:09 EST ]]> Education of ICU nurses regarding invasive mechanical ventilation: findings from a cross-sectional survey Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:51 EST ]]> A critical review of chronic traumatic encephalopathy Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:47 EST ]]> Investigation of gene expression underpinning partitioning of seed storage compunds in legumes Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:41 EST ]]> Structural, electronic and optical properties of titania nanotubes Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:38 EST ]]> Saving Private Hegel: Australian Liberalism and the 1914-1918 war Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:37 EST ]]> Computer simulations of particle-bubble interactions using discrete element method Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:36 EST ]]> Risk assessment of drug-induced QT prolongation Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:28 EST ]]> Management of chronic refractory cough Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:25 EST ]]> A criterion space search algorithm for biobjective integer programming: the balanced box method Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:24 EST ]]> Transfert de langue, transfert de culture: la traduction en français du roman Southern Steel de l'Australienne Dymphna Cusack Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:16 EST ]]> Scientism as a social response to the problem of suicide Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:11 EST ]]> Wavelet analysis of wall turbulence to study large-scale modulation of small scales Mon 30 May 2016 15:53:08 EST ]]> An experimental investigation of unsaturated clay: volume change and microstructural considerations Mon 30 May 2016 15:46:10 EST ]]> The E3 ubiquitin ligase midline 1 promotes allergen and rhinovirus-induced asthma by inhibiting protein phosphatase 2A activity Mon 09 May 2016 17:49:48 EST ]]> Covalent surface modification of biomimetic silica particles Fri 27 May 2016 16:43:56 EST ]]> The paradoxical effects of workforce shortages on rural interprofessional practice Fri 27 May 2016 16:43:47 EST ]]> Stop-signal response inhibition in schizophrenia: behavioural, event-related potential and functional neuroimaging data Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:12 EST ]]> Mandatory corporate social responsibility as a vehicle for reducing inequality: an Indian solution for Piketty and the millennials Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:09 EST ]]> Distributed stars (D-Stars): a system topology for microgrids Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:08 EST ]]> Dual time-frequency domain system identification Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:04 EST ]]> Numerical simulation for stochastic transient stability assessment Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:03 EST ]]> The fusion of unattended duration representations as indexed by the mismatch negativity (MMN) Fri 27 May 2016 16:37:01 EST ]]> Optimal dispatch of electric vehicles and wind power using enhanced particle swarm optimization Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:55 EST ]]> Definition of the Anthropocene: a view from the underworld Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:54 EST ]]> Non-uniform capacitor voltage ripple in a cascaded H-bridge StatCom Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:49 EST ]]> Physical chemical analysis of marine sediment cementation from the Gulf of Guinea Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:48 EST ]]> Multigoal heuristic model predictive control technique applied to a cascaded H-bridge StatCom Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:45 EST ]]> Albumin nanoparticles increase the anticancer efficacy of albendazole in ovarian cancer xenograft model Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:40 EST ]]> Welcome to Woodside: Inverbrackie alternative place of detention and performances of belonging in Woodside, South Australia, and Australia Fri 27 May 2016 16:36:35 EST ]]> A floating self-propelling liquid marble containing aqueous ethanol solutions Fri 27 May 2016 16:29:50 EST ]]> Probiotic viability and physico-chemical and sensory properties of plain and stirred fruit yogurts made from goat's milk Fri 27 May 2016 16:29:47 EST ]]> Analysis of nonlinear phenomena in a thermal micro-actuator with a built-in thermal position sensor Fri 27 May 2016 16:29:43 EST ]]> Introducing feedback quantizer -
