The mechanisms of aging increase susceptibility of the distal lung epithelium to influenza infection and delay the lung repair process contributing to the severity of the infection in the elderly.
Strict adherence to the DSM-5 criteria results in fewer delirium diagnoses than when DSM-IV are used, whereas applying ‘relaxed’ DSM-5 criteria identifies a comparable number of cases, supporting a more relaxed approach for delirium diagnosis.
Hans-Christoph Diener and colleagues discuss screening methods for atrial fibrillation (AF) and call for immediate research into self-administered AF screening techniques using mobile technology which may aid the detection of pulse irregularities.

Avian Research, previously entitled 'Chinese Birds', is jointly sponsored by Beijing Forestry University and the China Ornithological Society. It publishes research articles and reviews on all aspects of ornithology including research in fossil birds.
The Editor-in-Chief of Avian Research is Professor Guangmei Zheng, Beijing Normal University, China. Prof. Zheng is an academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as a senior member of International Ornithological Committee, vice-Chairman of World Pheasant Association and President of China Ornithological Society. Under his leadership, a well-established international editorial board has been recruited.
For more information please take a look at the launch editorial by Deputy Editor-in-Chief Prof. Yong Wang and Editor-in-Chief Prof. Guangmei Zheng.
Clinical Diabetes and Endocrinology is now accepting submissions
