A strain of Escherichia coli (E. coli) found in retail chicken and turkey products may cause a wide range of infections in people, according to a study published today in the American Society for Microbiology's open access journal mBio

Compared with non-drinkers, men who consumed at least seven drinks per week during adolescence (ages 15-19) had three times the odds of being diagnosed with clinically significant prostate cancer
A specific wavelength of ultraviolet light, now delivered through light-diffusing optical fibers, is highly effective at killing drug-resistant bacteria in cell cultures, according to a new study led by David J. Brenner, Ph.D., a professor of radiation biophysics at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons
New global research led by Western Sydney University has found major problems with the management of short peripheral catheters – with two-thirds of catheter insertions found to be placed in non-recommended sites or at risk of failure, and one in five catheters found to be unnecessarily painful or malfunctioning
More than 80 percent of the 250,000 Americans living with a spinal cord injury lose the ability to urinate voluntarily after their injury. According to a 2012 study, the desire to regain bladder control outranks even their wish to walk again
Nearly six percent of urinary tract infections analyzed by a California emergency department was caused by drug-resistant bacteria in a one-year study period, according to new research in the Annals of Emergency Medicine. The bacteria were resistant to most of the commonly used antibiotics. And, in many cases, patients had no identifiable risk for this kind of infection, the study found
Men with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) have more problems with sexual function and are more depressed than men in the general population, a new pilot study suggests
A new clinical guideline from the Women's Preventive Services Initiative (WPSI) recommends annual screening for all women, even adolescents, for urinary incontinence, but editorialists say this recommendation is premature and relies on insufficient evidence
Aquablation, which uses robotically guided waterjets to remove excess prostate tissue, appears to improve lower-urinary-tract symptoms (LUTS) in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and large prostate glands, researchers report
In the present retrospective study, scientists explained that higher PIRADS scores are associated with a higher likelihood of the diagnosis of prostate cancer
Certain molecular drivers of cancer growth are "undruggable—it's been nearly impossible to develop chemicals that would block their action and prevent cancer growth. Many of these molecules function by passing cancer-promoting information through a gate in the nucleus, where the instructions are carried out.
Researchers at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center—Jefferson Health have found a way to block the nuclear gates used by these molecules, and show that this inhibition can halt aggressive prostate cancer in mice bearing human tumors.
In the present study, researchers suggested that men who wear boxers most of the time may be more fertile than those who opt for jockeys and briefs
