Zika virus may cause men's testicles to SHRINK by up to 90 per cent
Experts at Washington University School of Medicine in Missouri warn that if the 'dramatic' findings, in mice, apply to humans it could lead to an epidemic of infertility caused by the disease.
Conclusions: The OSPRO-ROS tool may be used to improve the prediction of persistent musculoskeletal pain at 12 months in conjunction with comorbidities and pain intensity (baseline and 4 weeks). These are potentially important findings because persistent pain was not commonly evaluated in previous screening studies; however, it is a relevant outcome in an era of front-line nonpharmacological pain management.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewObesity is currently seen in epidemic proportions globally and is one of the largest contributors to the development of NAFLD. The spectrum of NAFLD, particularly the progressive forms of NASH, is likely to become the leading cause of liver disease in the next decade.Recent FindingsSoluble molecules, encoded by the stomach tissue, have been shown to have pleiotropic effects in both central and peripheral systems involved in energy homeostasis and obesity regulation. As such, the stomach is one of the important players in the complex, multi-system deregulation leading to obesity and NAFLD.SummaryThe...

AbstractIn the past 2 years, Zika virus has emerged from obscurity onto the world stage—traversing and transcending clinical specialties, basic science disciplines, and public health efforts. The spread of Zika virus has serious implications for the specialty of reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Our patient s, practices, and labs—worldwide and specifically in the USA—have been impacted by this teratogenic, sexually transmitted, largely asymptomatic virus. While the World Health Organization’s Public Emergency of International Concern designation has lapsed as major epidemics have sub...
