In this study, we detected for just the second time a SINV infection in a diseased wild bird (common wood pigeon) from Central Europe. SINV was isolated by cell culture and the complete SINV genome sequence was determined. Phylogenetic analyses revealed a close affiliation to SINV genotype I with a high similarity to human isolate sequences from Finland, Sweden and Russia. The isolate was genetically distinct from the first avian isolate suggesting the circulation of at least two different SINV strains in Germany.In order to reveal the infection frequency in SINV positive mosquito regions 749 bird blood samples were assaye...

Authors: Sarikaya I, Albatineh A, Sarikaya A Abstract Aim: Standardized uptake value (SUV) normalized by body weight is affected by amount of body fat. Higher (overestimated) SUV is measured in normal tissues and lesions in obese patients than the patients with normal body mass index (BMI). SUV calculated/normalized by lean body mass (LBM, fat free body mass) (SUVLBM or SUL) instead of total weight is recommended to provide more accurate SUV results. Given importance of a quantitative PET parameter particularly when comparing PET studies, in this study we aimed to re-visit and re-assess the effect of obesity on SUV...

Conclusion: Bariatric surgery when combined with dietary and exercise changes gave significant results in terms of weight loss, knee pain and function. It is an approach that tackles both obesity and OA. It is a major step forward in stemming the global epidemic of these two interlinked conditions.

ConclusionMore than half of all persons with symptomatic knee OA are younger than 65 years of age. As many of these younger persons will live for 3 decades or more, there is substantially more time for greater disability to occur, and policymakers should anticipate health care utilization for knee OA to increase in the upcoming decades. These data emphasize the need for the deployment of innovative prevention and treatment strategies for knee OA, especially among younger persons.

Conclusion: Over half of all persons with symptomatic knee OA are younger than 65 years of age. As many of these younger persons will live for three decades or more, there is substantially more time for greater disability to occur and policymakers should anticipate healthcare utilization for knee OA to increase further in upcoming decades. These data emphasize the need for the deployment of innovative prevention and treatment strategies for knee OA, especially among younger persons. This article is protected by copyright.

NHS data has shown that the number of hip replacement operations on people aged under 60 has risen 76% in the last decade. More and more people under the age of 60 are turning to hip replacement surgery as a remedy for chronic hip pain, according to new NHS data. The Royal College of Surgeons has analysed statistics released by the Health &Social Care Information Centre showing that hip replacements are becoming more common among younger patients, which is indicative of growing confidence in this type of treatment. The growing demand for hip replacements According to the data, there were 89,919 hip replacement operatio...
