Student drug use surveys provide an essential source of information about the prevalence and frequency of substance use, associated harms, socio-demographic correlates, and identification of high-risk groups in a youth population. Surveys that ask about drug use are conducted intermittently in nine of Canada’s 10 provinces. Unfortunately, there is large variability in methodologies employed and […]

Saewyc E, Warf C. (2011). Sexual orientation development and health issues of the adolescent patient. Treatment Strategies-Pediatrics, 2(1), 32-34

Clinicians and parents share the goal of promoting the healthy development of children and their maturation into healthy, engaged, and happy adults who will have positive and mutually supportive relationships. A core component of healthy development is the development of one’s sexual identity, shaped by one’s sexual orientation. Though contemporary thinking conceptualizes sexual orientation as […]

Poon C., Saewyc E., Chen, W. (2011). Enacted stigma, problem substance use, and protective factors among Asian sexual minority youth in British Columbia. Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health. 30(2), 47-64.

This study examined enacted stigma and problem substance use among Asian sexual minority youth and the buffering role of protective factors. Logistic regression analyses of a weighted sample of 5,423 Asian youth who completed the 2003 BC Adolescent Health Survey indicated that sexual minority youth were more likely to be victimized compared to heterosexual peers.

The aim of this study was to provide a clinical reference for the acute postoperative changes to lipids and inflammation following premenopausal hysterectomy with bilateral oophorectomy and compare them to normal reference values. The study design was a planned secondary analysis of data from a randomized double-blind trial comparing the effectiveness of two different hormone […]

Langsetmo L., Nguyen T.V., Nguyen N.D., Kovacs C.S, Prior J.C., Center J.R., Morin S., Josse R.G., Adachi J.D., Hanley D.A., Eisman J.A. and the CaMos Research Group (2011) Independent External Validation of Nomograms for Low Trauma Fracture and Hip Fracture Risk in a Population of Canadian Men and Women Ages 55-95. Canadian Medical Association Journal 183(2):E107-14.

A set of nomograms based on the Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study predicts the five- and ten-year absolute risk of fracture using age, bone mineral density and history of falls and low-trauma fracture. We assessed the discrimination and calibration of these nomograms among participants in the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study. We included participants aged 55–95 years […]

Previous research has shown that dietary patterns are related to the risk of several adverse health outcomes, but the relation of these patterns to skeletal fragility is not well understood. Our objective was to determine the relation between dietary patterns and incident fracture and possible mediation of this relation by body mass index, bone mineral […]

Leslie WD, Kovacs CS, Olszynski WP, Towheed T, Kaiser SM, Prior JC, Josse RG, Jamal SA, Kreiger N, Goltzman D; CaMos Research Group (2011) Spine-Hip T-Score Difference Predicts Major Osteoporotic Fracture Risk Independent of FRAX(®): A Population-Based Report From CAMOS. Journal of Clinical Densitometry,14(3):286-93.

The WHO fracture risk assessment tool (FRAX®) estimates an individual’s 10-yr major osteoporotic and hip fracture probabilities. When bone mineral density (BMD) is included in the FRAX calculation, only the femoral neck measurement can be used. Recently, a procedure was reported for adjusting major osteoporotic fracture probability from FRAX with femoral neck BMD based on […]

Osteoporosis International, 22(6):1873-83.

A procedure for creating a simplified version of fracture risk assessment tool (FRAX®) is described. Calibration, fracture prediction, and concordance were compared with the full FRAX tool using two large, complementary Canadian datasets. The Canadian Association of Radiologists and Osteoporosis Canada (CAROC) system for fracture risk assessment is based upon sex, age, bone mineral density […]

Prior JC (2011) Progesterone for Symptomatic Perimenopause Treatment – Progesterone politics, physiology and potential for perimenopause. Facts, Views and Vision in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 3(2):109-120.

Perimenopause, women’s normal midlife reproductive transition, is highly symptomatic for about 20% of women who are currently inaccurately counseled and inappropriately treated with oral contraceptives, menopausal hormone therapy or hysterectomy. About 80% of perimenopausal women experience vasomotor symptoms (VMS), 25% have menorrhagia, and about 10% experience mastalgia. The majority of women describe varying intensities of […]

We report menstrual and mid-cycle patterns of self-reported “fluid retention” in 765 menstrual cycles in 62 healthy women. Self-reported “fluid retention,” commonly described as bloating, is one element of the clinical assessment and diagnosis of premenstrual symptoms. These daily diary data were collected as part of an observational prospective one-year study of bone changes in […]
