To accurately characterize drug efficacy, 3D cell culture holds great promise as opposed to conventional 2D monolayer culture. Due to the advantages of cell manipulation in high-throughput, various microfluidic platforms have been developed for drug screening with 3D models.

However, the dissemination of microfluidic technology is overall slow, and one missing part is fast and low-cost assay readout. In this work, we developed a microfluidic chip forming tumor spheres for drug testing, and the platform is supported by automatic image collection and cropping for analysis. In this manner, we precisely estimated drug efficacy of three chemotherapy drugs, doxorubicin, oxaliplatin, and irinotecan. We also cross-validated the trained networks of doxorubicin and oxaliplatin and found common bright-field morphological features indicating sphere viability.

The discovery suggests the potential to train a generic network using some representative drugs and apply it to many different drugs in large-scale screening. More importantly, the presented method allows viability estimation in a label-free and nondestructive manner.

In short, with image processing and machine learning, the presented method provides a fast, low-cost, and label-free method to assess tumor sphere viability for large-scale drug screening in microfluidics. Detailed methods for image acquisition and neural network structure and additional figures including automatic sphere chamber cropping, neural network structure and trained filters for prediction, cancer sphere classification, and drug inhibition score regression for doxorubicin, oxaliplatin, and irinotecan PDF.

Method: This study enrolled a stratified equal probability sample of older residents in LTC institutions in Taiwan. Latent profile analysis and latent class analysis were conducted to explore the profiles for environment and activity participation. Multilevel modeling was performed to elucidate the hypothesized relationships. Results: Three environment profiles Low- Moderate- and High-Support Environment based on physical, social, and attitudinal environment domains and two activity profiles Low- and High-Activity Participation across seven activity domains were identified.

Compared to the Low-Support class, older adults in the Moderate- and High-Support Environment classes had better mental health. Older residents in those two classes were more likely to be in the "High Activity Participation" class, which in turn, exhibited better mental health.

Conclusion: Environment and activity participation directly relate to older residents' mental health. Activity participation also mediates the link between environment and mental health. A combination of enhanced physical, social, and attitudinal environments, and continual engagement in various activities may optimize older LTC residents' mental health. Keywords: Functional disability; depressive symptoms; latent class analysis; latent profile analysis; morale.

With the increase in cancer survival rate, how to control children's cancer-related fatigue during treatments or the coexisting period with the disease to further increase their quality of life has become the focus of medical teams who provide care to children with cancer.

Objectives: The objective of this systematic review was to synthesise the best available evidence concerning the effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions on fatigue in children and adolescents with cancer.

Search strategy: The search strategy aimed to find studies published between andin either the English or Chinese languages. Reference lists of studies that met the inclusion criteria were also searched for additional studies. Types of studies: This review included randomised controlled trials and quasi-experimental studies that examined the effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions for fatigue in children and adolescents with cancer.

Types of participants: Children and adolescents aged between one to 18 years old, with cancer either during or after the chemotherapy. The types of cancer included were acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, acute myeloid leukaemia, lymphoma and solid tumours. Types of interventions: Non-pharmacological interventions for fatigue in children and adolescents with cancer including: activity enhancement exercise, physical activitypsychosocial interventions, cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, relaxation, nutrition consultation, massage and educational interventions.

The intervention descriptions included the length, frequency, setting and intervention providers. Types of outcome measures: The outcome measures considered fatigue scores assessment. Types of setting: The review considered studies conducted either in a hospital or a community setting.

Data collection and synthesis: The data were extracted and synthesised using the standardised data extraction tool and synthesis function offered by the Joanna Briggs Institute Meta-Analysis of Statistics Assessment and Review Instrument. Results: The review included six studies - five English-language papers and one Chinese-language paper. Meta-analysis did not show a statistically significant impact on the effectiveness of exercise interventions in reducing overall fatigue in children and adolescents with cancer.

Conclusions: The results of this systematic review show that exercise interventions can effectively reduce the level of general fatigue of children aged six to 18 years. No strong conclusions can be made for the use of massage therapy or health education measures, as there was only one article for each of these interventions.

Implications for practice: The review provides an evidenced-based guide to future priorities for clinical practice. Exercise intervention could reduce the level of general fatigue of children aged six to 18 years. In particular, exercise interventions for fatigue are feasible and safe.The following scripts will help you get conversations going with your 9- to 12-year-old: Your child is just starting middle school and you know that eventually, he will be offered drugs and alcohol.
