Economic evaluations of medical devices in paediatrics: a systematic review and a quality appraisal of the literature

31 Mar 2024  |  BioMed Central
This systematic review and quality appraisal study focuses on the economic evaluations (EEs) of medical devices used in pediatrics. It identifies a gap in the development of pediatric-specific devices, with most approved devices being designed for adults. The study highlights the challenges in designing and approving pediatric devices due to stringent safety and ethical requirements, small market size, and the prevalence of 'off-label' use of adult devices in children. It emphasizes the need for robust EEs to inform Health Technology Assessment (HTA) decisions and discusses methodological gaps and recommendations for future research. The study also assesses the quality of reporting in existing literature using the CHEERS 2022 checklist and identifies a lack of reporting on conflicts of interest and funding sources. The review concludes that there is a need for more informed HTA decisions that consider the unique needs of child health and calls for methodological advancements in EEs for pediatric devices.

Retirement age rises to 66 years and seven months in 2025

29 Nov 2023  |  sicnoticias.pt
The retirement age in Portugal will increase by three months in 2025, reaching 66 years and seven months. This rise is linked to the evolution of life expectancy, which also affects the penalties for early retirement starting next year. In 2024, it will still be possible to retire at 66 years and four months, but the minimum age for retirement will be delayed by three months starting in 2025. Life expectancy had decreased due to mortality during the pandemic, but has recovered to a level close to that of 2022, according to the National Institute of Statistics, adjusting the social security sustainability index.

Post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 is characterized by diminished peripheral CD8+β7 integrin+ T cells and anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgA response

01 Oct 2023  |  Nature
Post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC) is characterized by persistent immune dysregulation, particularly in CD8+ T cells, which remain activated and express higher levels of effector molecules like perforin and Eomes. PASC patients show diminished peripheral CD8+β7 integrin+ T cells and elevated levels of specific IgA against SARS-CoV-2 antigens, suggesting viral persistence in mucosal tissues. The study highlights the importance of monitoring immune parameters in convalescent COVID-19 patients and suggests that antiviral treatments may be beneficial for managing PASC.

Attractors in Pattern Iterations of Flat Top Tent Maps

13 Jun 2023  |  mdpi.com
The paper explores the control of chaos in one-dimensional dynamical systems through the use of flat-topped maps, known as simple limiter control. The study introduces limiters in the tent map according to a binary sequence iteration pattern, defining local and Milnor attractors in a non-autonomous context. The existence and coexistence of these attractors are examined in relation to the limiter value and the iteration pattern. Symbolic dynamics are utilized to characterize and describe the attractor families. The research finds that non-autonomous systems exhibit a variety of behaviors not possible in autonomous cases, including the potential coexistence of multiple attractors. The findings have implications for controlling chaos in various fields, such as cardiac dynamics, telecommunications, and market dynamics, with potential for reducing implementation costs.
