    Health literacy in Europe : The development and validation of health literacy prediction models
    Heide, Iris van der; Uiters, Ellen ; Sørensen, Kristine ; Röthlin, Florian ; Pelikan, Jürgen ; Rademakers, Jany ; Boshuizen, Hendriek - \ 2016
    European Journal of Public Health 26 (2016)6. - ISSN 1101-1262 - p. 906 - 911.

    Background: Health literacy is an important determinant of health, but national health literacy levels are known for only some European countries. This study aims to examine to what extent national health literacy levels can be estimated based on publicly available census data. Method: Multivariate models were used to predict two types of health literacy on population level. Predictors were selected based on literature, the European Health Literacy Survey (HLS-EU) and the Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey (ALL). The HLS-EU provides insight into self-assessed health literacy and the ALL into the performance of individuals on health literacy tasks (performance-based health literacy). Dutch HLS-EU and ALL data were used to construct prediction models based on 2/3 of this data, which were validated in the remaining 1/3 of the data and (in case of self-assessed health literacy) in data from seven other European countries. Results: Education is a significant predictor of perceived and performance-based health literacy. Age and working status are significant predictors of performance-based health literacy, whereas gender and income are significant predictors of self-assessed health literacy. Both typologies of health literacy can satisfactorily be predicted within samples of the Dutch population. The accuracy of estimated self-assessed health literacy varied between the seven other European countries. Conclusion: Prediction models based on publicly available census data can be used for estimating self-assessed and performance-based health literacy on population level. Observed health literacy levels or better prediction models are required when one is interested in ranking European countries.

    Transgenic plants are increasingly used as production platforms for various proteins, yet protein expression levels in the range of the most abundant plant protein, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase have not yet been achieved by nuclear transformation. Suitable gene regulatory 5' and 3' elements are crucial to obtain adequate expression. In this study an abundantly transcribed member (rbcS1) of the ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase small-subunit gene family of chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat.) was cloned. The promoter ofrbcS1 was found to be homologous to promoters of highly expressedrbcS gene members of the plant families Asteraceae, Fabaceae and Solanaceae. The regulatory 5' and 3' non-translated regions ofrbcS1 were engineered to drive heterologous expression of various genes. In chrysanthemum, the homologousrbcS1 cassette resulted in a ?-glucuronidase (gusA) accumulation of, at maximum, 0.88 f total soluble protein (population mean 0.17Å1/2 In tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.), thegusA expression reached 10 f total soluble protein. The population mean of 2.7 as found to be 7- to 8-fold higher than for the commonly used cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S promoter (population mean 0.34Å1/2RbcS1-driven expression of sea anemone equistatin in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), and potato cystatin in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) yielded maximum levels of 3-7 f total soluble protein. The results demonstrate, that the compact 2-kbrbcS1 expression cassette provides a novel nuclear transformation vector that generates plants with expression levels of up to 10 f total protein.
