, urinary dysfunction and general health perception. Compared to whole-gland therapy, focal cryotherapy was associated with higher rates of urinary continence and statistically equivalent rates of recurrence-free survival at 60 months. A cost-effectiveness study found that cryotherapy was unlikely to be cost-effective compared with other PCa treatments.

Pruritus is a common symptom in patients with various hepa- tobiliary disorders, including cholestasis of pregnancy. 138–140 The skin in hepatic pruritus is often generally hyperpigmented and excoriated. 141 The hands and feet are often the worst- affected areas. 139 Pruritus in association with fatigue at presen- tation may be a marker for more aggressive disease, for exam- ple primary biliary cholangitis. 142 There is a poor correlation between pruritus and bile acid levels, suggesting that other

Two studies have examined (...) the impact of education on knowledge acquisition, and demonstrated that education in PR does improve health knowledge (31, 35).

. The study, Heavy Episodic Drinking among Post-secondary Students: Influencing Factors and Implications, examined student perceptions and attitudes, expectations, reasons and consequences influencing heavy episodic drinking. The study also explored three high- risk drinking issues: alcohol-induced blackouts, pre-drinking and drinking to cope. The findings from the report continue to demonstrate the extreme nature of heavy episodic drinking and the risks posed to students. In response, this study suggests (...) perceptions and attitudes towards alcohol, expectations about excessive drinking, reasons for excessive drinking, positive and negative consequences experienced from drinking, and student suggestions for addressing the issue. General Findings ? The majority of students did not recognize what constituted heavy episodic drinking, did not see it as an issue in the post-secondary context, and considered drinking a part of the post- secondary experience. ? Most students stated that the average student could

In a follow-up study from the same group(12), the authors exam- ined paired oral fluid and urine specimens from a chronic pain population (n=133). Upon screening of both specimens for each patient, they found 21.3% of specimens positive in both matrices and 63.7% negative in both matrices, for an overall agreement rate of 85%. Of the 15
