Inactivated bacterial whole cell vaccines have been widely used to prevent many bacterial infections because they elicit good immunogenicity due to the presence of various antigens and are relatively inexpensive and easy to manufacture. Recently, gamma-irradiated whole cells of none...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewOpioids are the cornerstone for pain treatment with significant recent increases in the number of prescriptions. Sexual dysfunction (SD) is a major side effect of opioid therapy. The goal of this review is to examine the current literature on the effects of opioids on male SD (erectile dysfunction [ED], hypogonadism, ejaculatory dysfunction) and infertility.Recent FindingsHigh prevalence of SD exists in men with opioid use as compared to the general population, with an abundance of evidence suggesting an association between opioid use and ED and hypogonadism. There appears to be a role for testoste...

AbstractTesticular apoptotic cell death (TACD) contributes to diabetes  mellitus (DM)-induced male infertility. MicroRNA-34a (miR-34a) is a pro-apoptotic RNA that targets sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) which provides protection against complications of (DM). However, the specific role of miR-34a in (DM)-induced TACD is unknown. MiR-34a targetsSirt1 mRNA, resulting in apoptosis. However, whether or not SIRT1 is a major target of miR-34a in (DM)-induced TACD is unclear. The present study aimed to define the role of miR-34a/SIRT1 in (DM)-induced TACD. C57BL/6 male mice were induced to (DM) by streptozotocin, for a period of 24  ...

Discussion Of the 30 different microbes which can be transmitted by sexual contact, 8 have the greatest incidence of transmitting disease. Four are curable (Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis) and 4 are incurable at present (Hepatitis B, Herpes simplex virus (HSV), Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Human papillomavirus (HPV)). Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are important as they can cause: Increased rates of acquisition of other STIs (ie HSV and syphilis increase the rate of HIV infection acquisition) Pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility Stillbirth and neonatal death Neonatal morbidity i...
