Clinical and Epidemiological Characterization of Laboratory-Confirmed Autochthonous Cases of Zika Virus Disease in Mexico

CONCLUSIONS ZIKV epidemic poses new challenges to public health, our knowledge about this virus is incipient. In Brazil, a relationship between ZIKV and microcephaly has been mentioned since November 20157 which has not been reported in ZIKV outbreaks in other areas of the world. Several research groups are working on this topic. Guillain Barré Syndrome also has been reported as a complication of ZIKV; however, there are still many questions unanswered regarding the complications caused by this virus. Provide information to the population, following recommendations and preventive measures, taking actions to reduce the density of the vector, and preventing mosquito bites, constitute the best tools to hold in check this Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Competing Interests The authors have declared that no competing interests exist.

CONCLUSION: Rates of perinatal complications in our series are more reassuring than the ubiquitously quoted rates from small and dated studies. The diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism may be easily missed during pregnancy, owing to its non-specific presentation. A high index of suspicion and measurement of ionized calcium levels is encouraged, especially for patients with excessive nausea and vomiting, nephrolithiasis, atypical presentations of hypertensive disorders, or isolated polyhydramnios. Mild degrees of calcium derangement do not preclude adverse perinatal outcomes. Surgery appears to be safe, even in the thir...

One of the biggest challenges of this unsettling time is the isolation we feel as we’re separated from friends and family, all the people for whom we care most deeply. But just being alone is only part of the difficulty. Our sense of remoteness is intensified by a pall of unease we can’t define: Loss and sorrow are also in the air. We fear losing—or we may have already lost—people we love. And when we work up the courage to look beyond our individual personal spheres, we see that many people who have made our world better, in big and small ways, have vanished before we were ready to let them go. But...

Abstract Ayurveda oil contains numerous source of biological constituents which plays an important role in reducing the pain relief caused during bone fracture. The aim of the study is to fabricate the polyurethane (PU) scaffold for bone tissue engineering added with ayurveda amla oil using electrospinning technique. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analysis showed that the fabricated nanocomposites showed reduced fiber diameter (758 ± 185.46 nm) than the pristine PU (890 ± 116.91 nm). Fourier Infrared Analysis (FTIR) revealed the existence of amla oil in the PU matrix by hydrogen bond formation. T...
