A study showed that scarlet fever outbreak is in England and Wales, which is seen the highest number of cases reported in the first quarter of a year since Public Health England (PHE) began collecting data in 1982. Cases of scarlet fever are always more common in the spring, but 15,549 cases were reported in the first three months of this year more than twice as many as last year. However, cases are showing signs of falling, with 1624 cases reported in the week ending April 1 compared with 2105 in the previous week.

A novel nutraceutical called nicotinomide riboside has been found to kick-start the same biological pathways as calorie restriction does, and boost arterial health in people with mild hypertension.
According to a new study, uncrossmatched type O whole blood can be safely used to transfuse injured children with hemorrhagic shock.
The divide that separates conservative and liberal values might be as wide now as it has ever been in the U.S. it shows diversity in areas of everyday life, and healthcare is no exception. But do doctors' political beliefs influence their work?
Some patients with POCD experience memory problems; others have difficulty multitasking, learning new things, following multistep procedures or setting priorities. Unlike delirium, an acute, sudden-onset disorder that affects consciousness and attention POCD can involve subtle, difficult-to-recognize symptoms that develop days to weeks after surgery. Most of the time, POCD is transient and patients get better in several months. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

When comparing the effects of red meat, poultry, fish or vegetarian diets to cancer development in specific subsites of the colon, a study found that those regularly eating red meat compared to a red meat-free diet had higher rates of distal colon cancer.
Researchers from the University of Iowa have identified a new population of lung stem cell that repairs the organ's gas exchange compartment following severe injury. The cells, known as glandular myoepithelial cells (MECs), were found to be surprisingly flexible. The study, published in Cell Stem Cell, shows that MECs can self-renew and differentiate into seven distinct cell types in the airway, making them the most plastic lung stem cell.
A medical device coated with new bacteria resistant materials, discovered by a team at the University of Nottingham, has been approved for use by hospitals in the UK and Europe
