Abstract: In this manuscript, we compare the effectiveness of gamma and inverse Gaussian distributions for frailty term in modeling survival data for heterogeneous populations. Different baseline hazards were considered including exponential, Weibull and Gompertz. We derived the closed-form expressions for unconditional hazard and survival functions under each baseline distribution for both gamma and inverse Gaussian frailty models. We applied both graphical and simulation approach to compare the models based on unconditional hazards and survival functions. General overview from the graphical approach indicates that gamma distribution under the Gompertz and Weibull baseline hazards is better compared to inverse Gaussian in modeling survival data for heterogeneous populations. Results from simulation also show the superiority of gamma distribution in modeling survivals for heterogeneous population especially when the sample size is small. For large samples, inverse Gaussian is more efficient compared to a gamma distribution. In most cases when exponential baseline hazard is used, results appeared to be poor compared to when Weibull or Gompertz baseline hazards were used for both gamma and inverse Gaussian frailty models.

Keywords: Frailty, Conditional hazards, Bootstrap resampling technique, Laplace transform.

Paper Title: Association between alcohol consumption and health-related characteristics in seniors.

Abstract: Alcohol consumption patterns in the senior population might vary in different generations and cultures. Generally, daily consumption of alcohol intake increases health risk, falls, interaction with medication, and morbidity. At the same time, adequate alcohol consumption has a positive health effect. According to the National Health and Nutrition survey in 2017, 30.4% of men and 5.2% of female over 60 are reported to have daily alcohol habit that is quite a large number in men. As we are expecting to live in a more aging society, health-related intervention with regards to alcohol consumption might necessary to avoid premature long-term care and mortality but there is little evidence between daily alcohol habits and health-related characteristics. The purpose of this study examines the daily alcohol consumption rates and their relation to health and social related characteristics.

Methods

A cross-sectional study of community-dwelling older people was recruited in a town of Tochigi prefecture Japan in 2015. 1062 volunteers aged over 60 were completed a questionnaire and 995 without missing data were included in the analysis. Self-reported demographic information, alcohol taking habit, health conditions, and psychosocial functioning were corrected. A chi-square test is used to see the difference among age groups and daily alcohol consumption with health-related factors.

Results

The average age of the sample was 71.7 years (60-98). 40.6% of men and 7.7% of women aged 60 and over were taking alcohol daily. The percentage of daily drinkers was different among age groups. Among daily alcohol consumers, 89% (p = 0.017) reported having a good subjective health. It seems to have a more active lifestyle and good sleep quality among daily drinkers. 52% of those reported to have hypertension.

Discussion

This is the first survey to examine daily alcohol consumption and health-related factors. However, the amount and what kind of liquor were not evaluated. In future research should consider including harmful revel of alcohol intake which may differ individuals.

Keywords: Alcohol consumption, seniors, health

Paper Title: Antimicrobial activity of Frankincense resin from Boswellia sacraPls Note: This is a corrected abstract previously submitted. Disregard previous version

Abstract: With the increasing burden of antimicrobial resistance, continued exploration of new sources of antimicrobials must be supported. This work describes the antimicrobial properties of extracts of frankincense from the Boswellia sacra tree. Frankincense was extracted using two solvent methods: 0.05:60:40 TFA:acetonitrile: methanol and 2:1 methanol: chloroform. Volatile components were extracted using the same buffers. These extracts were fractionated using reversed-phase HPLC using a C18 column and the resulting fractions were tested against organisms that are Gram-positive (Clostridium difficile, Staphylococcus epidermidis), Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) and fungus (Candida albicans). Although the aqueous extractions generally showed no significant results, there was significant inhibition observed by both the raw and smoke organic extractions. Fractions 4 and 5 of the organic smoke extraction, in particular, showed a significant zone of inhibition for each of the microbes tested. These results suggest that frankincense is a viable source of new antimicrobials and further testing should be expanded to identify the specific components particularly active against Clostridium difficile and Candida albicans.

Paper Title: How can we use neurotransmitters in emotion and reward systems to study depression?

Abstract: Major depressive disorder is caused by social, psychological, and biological factors. Many hypotheses are associated with biological factors involved in the etiology of depression such as genes and neurotransmitters. Three neurotransmitters are involved with major depression disorder: dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. Based on the function of these neurotransmitters, antidepressant drugs have been developed to treat depression. Although helpful, antidepressant drugs have other negative health outcomes on users such as side effects. Research on antidepressants has led to the development of new drugs such as nasal spray and skin patch which has shown to improve the health of patients. Furthermore, other non-medical factors such as social engagement and physical activity are also involved in treating depression.
