According to a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, a bivalent meningococcal B vaccine targeting factor H-binding protein (MenB-FHbp, Trumenba) elicits bactericidal responses against diverse meningococcal B strains after the second and third doses in adolescents and young adults.

U.S. researchers study suggests that Pregnant and breastfeeding women who travel to places with high risk of diseases like malaria and yellow fever are less likely than other women travelers to be protected by vaccines and drugs. The study findings were published in the Obstetrics & Gynecology
According to a new research, newly recognized biomarkers might be capable to differentiate fatal from nonfatal Ebola infections and eventually enabling clinicians to prioritize scarce treatment resources. The study findings were reported in the journal Cell Host and Microbe.
A new study published in JAMA Ophthalmology has revealed that ophthalmologists' perceptions of financial and clinical productivity following electronic health records (EHR) implementation declined. The study results highlight the fact that companies that design EHR systems should further address the efficiency and usability of those systems.
A new Florida Atlantic University (FAU) study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health has reported a new form of self-harm behaviour in adolescents has emerged and is cause for concern. The behaviour: digital self-harm, self-trolling, or self-cyberbullying, where adolescents post, send or share mean things about themselves anonymously online. The concern: it is happening at alarming rates and could be a cry for help.
Fewer than 1 in 1,000 women who undergo genital testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea also undergo rectal testing for those conditions, U.S. researchers report. More than one-third of women (age 18-44 yeras) report ever having had anal intercourse, which puts them at risk for rectal chlamydia and gonorrhea, HIV infection, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and anal cancer.
India's decision to ban condom ads on daytime television drew widespread ridicule as a retrograde step that threatened progress on sexual and reproductive health. India's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ordered television channels not to air condom adverts between 6 a.m and 10 p.m. as they could be "indecent" and "inappropriate" for children.
High blood levels of the chemokine eotaxin-1 (CCL11) have recently been associated with aging and dementia, as well as impaired memory and learning in humans. Importantly, eotaxin-1 was shown to pass the blood-brain-barrier (BBB) and has been identified as crucial mediator of decreased neurogenesis and cognitive impairment in young mice after being surgically connected to the vessel system of old animals in a parabiosis model.
An international team of researchers has shown that a new small-molecule drug can restore brain function and memory in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease. The drug works by stopping toxic ion flow in the brain that is known to trigger nerve cell death. Scientists envision that this drug could be used to treat Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and ALS. Researchers published their findings in EMBO Molecular Medicine.
A new study led by the Columbia University showed that patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) have decreased bone mineral density (vBMD) and stiffness in the distal tibia, compared with healthy individuals.
A new study published in the journal European Urology Focus revealed that the one-month duration hypo-fractionated radiation therapy (HRT), was associated with a significant improvement in recurrence compared to the two-month duration conventionally fractionated high dose external beam radiation therapy (CRT) and therefore would be reasonable to consider in men with intermediate risk prostate cancer and who do not have risk factors that could predispose the patient to bladder side effects several years after the treatment is complete.
In the perioperative period, it may be inappropriate to monitor vital signs during endotracheal intubation using the same interval as during a hemodynamically stable period. The aim of the present study was to determine whether it is appropriate to use the same intervals used during the endotracheal intubation and stable periods to monitor vital signs of patients under general anesthesia.
