Genital warts are one of the most common forms of the sexually-transmitted disease, but their epidemiology has yet to be thoroughly elucidated. The present study was designed to shed light on the prevalence of clinically-confirmed, self-reported genital warts (GWs) in a representative sample of the university population.

Zika virus is an emerging arbovirus of the family Flaviviridae and genus Flavivirus that until 2007 was restricted to a few cases of mild illness in Africa and Asia. Researchers reveal a case of atrial fibrillation during a Zika virus infection epidemic.
Inhaled drug delivery is the cornerstone treatment for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, use of inhaler devices can be challenging, potentially leading to critical errors in handling that can significantly reduce drug delivery to the lungs and effectiveness of treatment.
Health Care Workers (HCWs) are known to be at risk of acquiring tuberculosis in the workplace. In response to this risk, the WHO published guidelines for prevention of TB in health care facilities and policy on TB infection control. In India, studies have also reported an increased risk of TB among HCWs. The government has issued airborne infection control recommendations for healthcare settings. However, due to structural, administrative, and behavioral factors, implementation of these guidelines has been poor.
Adult full-thickness cutaneous wound repair suffers from an imbalanced immune response, leading to nonfunctional reconstructed tissue and fibrosis. Although various treatments have been reported, the immune-mediated tissue regeneration driven by biomaterial offers an attractive regenerative strategy for damaged tissue repair.
The study is based on the review outcomes and experience of artificial urinary sphincter implantation for patients with refractory urinary incontinence from different causes.
According to new research from the University of Sydney, a child's birth month should not affect their long-term prospects in high-level sport and those who hold off on specializing until later years may be the most successful.
A team of scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a way to wirelessly deliver light into deep regions of the body to activate light-sensitive drugs for photodynamic therapy (PDT).
Researchers have described severe, life-threatening toxicity in monkeys and piglets given high doses of gene therapy delivered using an adeno-associated virus (AAV9) vector capable of accessing spinal cord neurons. The liver and neuronal toxicity reported here are different than the immune-related toxicity described with other AAV vectors, as reported in an article published Human Gene Therapy .
A new study revealed that following the analysis of five evidential components (bones, mites, soil chemistry, nematodes and soil micro-eukaryotes) the following course of events can be proposed for the case: human remains were found in a Swiss Plateau forest. Mite evidence, however, suggests that the corpse was translocated from its original crime scene to the forest soil.
A new Tel Aviv University study published in Addiction finds that only eight out of 100 smokers who take smoking cessation medications will have benefited from taking smoking medications after one year's time. The researchers conclude that this low rate of success should lead policymakers to find better methods to help smokers quit — and to prevent young people from taking up smoking, to begin with.
A new study estimated the global amount of phosphorus from human activities that entered Earth's freshwater bodies from 2002 to 2010.The study was published in the journal Water Resources Research.
