• #### Evaluation of shared genetic aetiology between osteoarthritis and bone mineral density identifies SMAD3 as a novel osteoarthritis risk locus ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2017-10-01)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common complex disease with high public health burden and no curative therapy. High bone mineral density (BMD) is associated with an increased risk of developing OA, suggesting a shared underlying ...
• #### Evaluation of stroke services in Anglia Stroke Clinical Network to examine the variation in acute services and stroke outcomes ﻿

(2011-02-28)
Abstract Background Stroke is the third leading cause of death in developed countries and the leading cause of long-term disability worldwide. A series of national stroke audits in the UK highlighted the differences in ...
• #### Evaluation of sulfate resistance of calcined dolomite activated ground granulated plastfurnace slag ﻿

(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-08-27)
Aggressive environments significantly influence the durability and serviceability of hardened cement and concrete. This paper presents an evaluation of the resistance of ground granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS) activated ...
• #### Evaluation of System Mapping Approaches in Identifying Patient Safety Risks ﻿

Objective: While many system mapping approaches (SMAs) have been broadly used in safety-critical industries, few have so far been employed in the healthcare field to assist in the identification of patient safety risks. ...
• #### An evaluation of the effectiveness of self-management interventions for people with type 2 diabetes after an acute coronary syndrome: a systematic review ﻿

(Wiley, 2016-08-03)
${\bf Background:}$ Type 2 diabetes is highly prevalent in patients with acute coronary syndrome and impacts negatively on health outcome s and self-management. Both conditions shar e similar risk factor s. However, there ...
• #### Evaluation of the Indian Migration Study Physical Activity Questionnaire (IMS-PAQ): a cross-sectional study ﻿

(2012-02-09)
Abstract Background Socio-cultural differences for country-specific activities are rarely addressed in physical activity questionnaires. We examined the reliability and validity of the Indian Migration Study Physical ...
• #### Evaluation of the performance of different atmospheric chemical transport models and inter-comparison of nitrogen and sulphur deposition estimates for the UK ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-08-06)
An evaluation has been made of a number of contrasting atmospheric chemical transport models, of varying complexity, applied to estimate sulphur and nitrogen deposition in the UK. The models were evaluated by comparison ...
• #### Evaluation of the response of a vaulted masonry structure to differential settlements using point cloud data and limit analyses ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-09)
Differential settlements have adverse effects on the serviceability and stability of vaulted masonry structures. However, the existing monitoring and assessment techniques do not capture these effects in sufficient detail. ...
• #### Evaluation of the role of location and distance in recruitment in respondent-driven sampling ﻿

(2011-10-18)
Abstract Background Respondent-driven sampling(RDS) is an increasingly widely used variant of a link tracing design for recruiting hidden populations. The role of the spatial distribution of the target population has not ...
• #### Evaluation of Three Human Cervical Fusion Implants for Use in the Canine Cervical Vertebral Column ﻿

(2016-09-06)
OBJECTIVE: To assess technical feasibility and mechanical properties of 3 locking plate designs (Zero-P, Zero-P VA, and Uniplate 2) for use in the canine cervical spine. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective ex vivo study. ANIMALS: ...
• #### Evaluation of two-phase flow solvers using Level Set and Volume of Fluid methods ﻿

(Wiley, 2015-12-24)
Objectives: Evaluation of urine albumin:creatinine ratio, urine cystatin C:creatinine ratio, urine protein:creatinine ratio and urine specific gravity as screening tests for azotaemic chronic kidney disease in cats. Methods: ...
• #### Evaluation of velocity-sensitized and acceleration-sensitized NCE-MRA for below-knee peripheral arterial disease ﻿

(Wiley, 2017-06-01)
$\textbf{PURPOSE}$ To evaluate the diagnostic performance of velocity- and acceleration-sensitized noncontrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (NCE-MRA) of the infrageniculate arteries using contrast-enhanced MRA ...
• #### An evaluation tool for Age-Friendly and Dementia Friendly Communities ﻿

Purpose: This article reports how an evaluation tool originally developed for Age-Friendly Cities was pilot-tested in the context of the Dementia Friendly Community initiative of the city of Sheffield/UK. It presents finding ...
• #### An evaluation tool kit of air quality micro-sensing units. ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-01-01)
Recent developments in sensory and communication technologies have made the development of portable air-quality (AQ) micro-sensing units (MSUs) feasible. These MSUs allow AQ measurements in many new applications, such as ...
• #### Evanescent ergosurfaces and ambipolar hyperkähler metrics ﻿

(Springer, 2016-04-20)
A supersymmetric solution of 5d supergravity may admit an ‘evanescent ergosurface’: a timelike hypersurface such that the canonical Killing vector field is timelike everywhere except on this hypersurface. The hyperkähler ...
• #### Evangelical Christianity in post-socialist Mongolia : an ethnography of an encounter. ﻿
