HIV-Positive Women: Less Likely To Be Treated For Cervical Pre-cancer

Women living with HIV are more likely than HIV-negative women to have residual or recurring abnormal cells after treatment for pre-cancerous cervical lesions, according to research recently published in Clinical Infectious Diseases. This systematic review and meta-analysis found that treatment for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), or abnormal cells that could progress to cancer, was nearly three…

The Ebola's Pandemic: Hunting The Origin

The outbreak of Ebola that started in 2013 in West Africa. It infected nearly 30,000 people and killing 11,000 before it ended in 2016.

Epidemics: By Obesity, Climate Change & Under-nutrition

A Lancet Commission report says these three co-occur, interact with each other to produce epidemics. And they share common underlying societal drivers. The report shows that the three “pandemics” are interplaying with each other and terms it as “global syndemic”. A result of a three-year project, the new Lancet report is authored by 43 experts…

Effects of Radiotherapy in Early-Stage, Low-Recurrence Risk

Radiotherapy after breast conservation has become the standard of care. Prior meta-analyses on the effects of radiotherapy predated availability of gene expression profiling (GEP) to assess recurrence risk and/or did not include all relevant outcomes. This analysis used GEP information with pooled individual-level data to evaluate the impact of omitting radiotherapy on recurrence and mortality.…

'Superbug gene'

In One Of The Most Remote Places On Earth: 'Superbug gene' Discovered

Antibiotic-Resistant Genes (ARGs) that were first detected in urban India. Scientists found them 8,000 miles away in one of the last ‘pristine’ places on earth. Soil samples taken in Svalbard have now confirmed the spread of blaNDM-1 into the High Arctic. Worldwide spread of  blaNDM-1 and other antibiotic-resistant genes is a growing concern because they often…

Medical Care For Patients: Heart Valve Modeling Technique

Engineers at The University of Texas have developed a new noninvasive technique. It can stimulate repairs to the heart’s mitral valve. And also with levels of accuracy reliable enough for use in a clinical setting. Mitral valve (MV) disease is one of the most common valve-related heart conditions, newly diagnosed in 5 million Americans each…

Diverse metabolic reactions during fasting

Ramping Up Human Metabolism: By Fasting

Research uncovers previously unknown effects of fasting, including notably increased metabolic activity and possible anti-aging effects. Fasting may help people lose weight, but new research suggests going without food may also boost human metabolic activity, generate antioxidants, and help reverse some effects of aging. “Our research is on aging and metabolism for many years. We…
