According to a substudy of the ANRS IPERGAY trial, Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) with doxycycline can sharply reduce the risk of chlamydia and syphilis in high-risk men who have sex with men (MSM). The impact on the selection of antibiotic resistance in chlamydia and syphilis,
Until recently, researchers have associated post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with being a victim of trauma. Now, new findings from the US suggest that the act of killing or perpetrating violence could be even more traumatic than being a victim.
The study confirms that blood metal ion levels specific to the type of hip implant used can help predict patients who are at low risk of ARMD. The study findings were published in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery. Patients with "metal on metal" (MoM) artificial hips are at risk of complications caused by adverse reactions to metal debris (ARMD).
Researchers have shown a significant relationship between personality disorders, and the type of crime committed and substance used among prisoners. Thus, attention to psychological and behavioural aspects of prisoners, in addition to the criminological and sociological aspects of their behaviour, by judicial officials is recommended.
An interdisciplinary research team led by the National University of Singapore (NUS) has recently discovered a unique panel of urine biomarkers that could accurately diagnose nephrolithiasis, also commonly known as kidney stones. These urine biomarkers may potentially be used to screen individuals at a higher risk of developing the disease. Early intervention strategies could greatly reduce the economic and social burden of the increasingly prevalent and highly recurrent disease.
Air pollution trapped by winter inversions along Utah's Wasatch Front, the state's most populated region, is estimated to send more than 200 people to the emergency room with pneumonia each year, according to a study by University of Utah Health and Intermountain Healthcare. Bad air quality especially erodes the health of adults over age 65, a population particularly vulnerable to the effects of pneumonia.
According to a new study, children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often have a hard time switching gears from one task to another. However, being bilingual may actually make it a bit easier for them to do so. The study findings were published in the Child Development.
A new study has suggested that a specific group of bile acids could directly burn away the lipids in fat depots, effectively making it a new therapy against obesity.When bile acids concentration in the blood reaches a certain level, it can turn up the thermostat and increase fat burning for energy and heat production.
New research from Duke Health suggests baseball scouts looking for a consistent, conscientious hitter may find clues not only in their performance on the field but also in front of a computer screen.
In the quest for a new and more effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC looked to a primate. It was a particular peptide only found in Old World monkeys, called θ-defensin 1 (RTD-1), that the researchers believed had the potential to stop or even reverse the progression of rheumatoid arthritis. The promising results of their study were published in PLOS ONE.
"The study confirms several previous studies that show the HLF gene's significance in blood formation", says Mattias Magnusson who led the new study. The results can have important applications in bone marrow transplants, as well as contribute to our knowledge of how leukemia develops.
