All schoolchildren could be screened for stuttering By Piriya Mahendra.

As reported in the Journal of Fluency Disorders, all analyses both excluded and included whole-word repetitions in stuttering severity scores. The model that screened fluent children from all kids who stutter excluded whole-phrase repetitions and was validated for children across a range of ages. Howell discovered that all models accomplished a specificity and sensitivity of 80 percent. He also observed that models in which whole-term repetitions were excluded had been always better than those that included them. Validation of the model that screened for fluency with whole-word repetitions excluded correctly classified 84.4 percent of fluent children and 88.0 percent of children who stutter.We expect that our research plan will result in safer smallpox vaccination for atopic dermatitis individuals and a far more thorough protection of our people against a bioterrorist strike using the smallpox virus, said Dr. Leung. Furthermore, it should result in a better knowledge of atopic dermatitis, far better treatments, and possibly methods to prevent the disease. Furthermore to National Jewish Research and Medical Center, the Clinical Research Consortium of the Atopic Dermatitis and Vaccinia Network will include research teams at Oregon Health & Technology University; Boston Children's Medical center; University of California, NORTH PARK; Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center; and the University of Bonn.
