Brachytherapy Proves Safe for Patients With Cervical Cancer

Previously, there have been concerns that brachytherapy for locally advanced cervical cancer might increase the risk, although the treatment itself is associated with better survival. However, a new study presented at the ESTRO 37 conference from two large international trials shows that intracavitary and interstitial (IC/IS) brachytherapy is safe and does not increase the risk of ureteral stricture.

Children Have Muscles Like Endurance Athletes

Researchers from Edith Cowan University and the Université Clermont Auvergne in France have investigated how young children seem to be able to run around all day without getting tired. The study, published in Frontiers in Physiology, suggests it's because their muscles resist fatigue and recover very quickly in a similar way to those of elite endurance athletes.

Antimicrobial Resistance Genes Are Detected In The ISS Environmental Surface

A Comprehensive study, to Minimize the threat, astronauts detected immunocompromised and thus at a greater risk of infection from antimicrobial resistant pathogens. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health issue. The Study of the ISS “resistome’ was conducted. Using whole-genome sequencing (WGS) and disc diffusion antibiotic resistance assays, nine biosafety level 2 organisms isolated from the ISS were assessed for their antibiotic resistance.

A Pediatric Tracheocutaneous Sinus Years After Repair Of A Tracheocutaneous Fistula

A study examined the rare type of tracheocutaneous sinus after repair of a tracheocutaneous fistula and to review management strategies. A tracheocutaneous fistula is a common sequela of pediatric tracheostomy and can occur in as many as one in three pediatric patients. There is a debate in the literature regarding optimal surgical management. Advances in perinatal medicine and healthcare access have increased the number of premature infants requiring the assistance of prolonged ventilation.
