The BMSS wants to play a key role in the professional development of medical students by involving them in national and international training programs. The Bangladesh Medical Students’ Society (BMSS) is hosting the fourth National General Assembly (NGA) on October 5. In preparation for the event, the BMSS is currently offering training to medical students through a pre-NGA workshop, which will host a total of seven training sessions.

Suspected cholera cases have nearly tripled in the past three months in Hodeida, the Yemeni port city on the front line between a pro-government alliance and rebels, Save the Children said.
New research from the University of British Columbia suggests that reducing mutated Huntington disease protein in the brain can restore cognitive and psychiatric impairments in mice
An international research team from the CRyPTIC Consortium has taken a critical step forward in the fight against tuberculosis: a large-scale genome analysis of over 10,000 pathogen strains has shown that genome sequencing can improve tuberculosis treatment. Furthermore: the method has the potential to completely replace time-intensive phenotypic resistance testing. The results of this study, led by the University of Oxford, have been published in the current issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Scientists with the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute say a gene involved in the body's circadian rhythms is a potential target for therapies to help patients with a deadly form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
A substantial proportion of pediatric liver-transplant patients with normal liver tests have varying degrees of subclinical chronic allograft injury, according to new findings.
While liver biopsies are powerful and reliable, they are also invasive, painful, limited and subject to complications. These effects may soon be a thing of the past for some patients thanks to new research showing PET imaging with the 18F-FAC radiotracer can be used as a non-invasive substitute. The study is featured in the October issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
In May, just before one of the hottest summers on record, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning about diseases lurking in recreational water facilities like swimming pools and water playgrounds. The culprit in nine out of ten cases in which an infectious cause was identified was the microscopic parasite Cryptosporidium.
In the largest multi-institutional study to date, led by researchers from Penn Medicine, the team found that among patients who underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), a high number experienced severe and moderate cases of prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM), meaning the implanted heart valve is too small for the patient which can lead to inadequate blood flow.
The team also found that the risk of death and of heart failure readmissions were 19% and 12% higher, respectively, after one year as compared to patients without severe PPM. Results of the study were presented today as a late-breaking abstract at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2018 meeting in San Diego and simultaneously published online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Cancer epidemiologist Lifang Hou's father was a lifelong smoker, and she urged him to quit all through her medical training. He insisted that because his parents smoked for decades and died of natural causes, he was not at risk of cancer.
New research from the University of British Columbia and the University of Saskatchewan is adding new evidence in support of midwives as a safe option for prenatal care, especially for women who have low socioeconomic status
