Glasgow women to march in their fight for equal pay
Hundreds of women will march on George Square in Glasgow tomorrow as they continue their fight for equal pay. And as the UK marks the centenary of the first limited suffrage for women, the link to today’s struggle will be highlighted when the march is led by 30 women dressed as suffragettes. The women are part of UNISON’s equal pay campaign. Having won their legal case they are now demanding a fair and transparent pay and grading scheme and full compensation for the pay they have been denied. UNISON recently won a legal case on the issue and Glasgow City Council agreed not to appeal against a court decision last year over its grading system. The council has agreed to “negotiation not litigation” to discuss a settlement with UNISON and other trade unions. UNISON Glasgow city branch chairperson Carol Ball said: “This is not about robbing Peter to pay Pauline. It’s about equality and justice. We must focus on delivering equal pay now and in the future. “The council did not want to pay the cost of equality in 2006 and ordinary working people of Glasgow should not have to pay the price of inequality with loss of jobs and services. “This will be one of the largest re-distributions of wealth in the history of Glasgow. We are rightly putting money in the pockets of Glasgow’s low-paid women. But our fight for equality is far from over. “There is plenty of money in society – it’s just in the wrong hands and the peo...

Authors: Mumcuoglu KY, Leibovici V, Reuveni I, Bonne O Abstract BACKGROUND: Delusional parasitosis (DP) is a somatic type of delusional disorder, usually mono-symptomatic, in which the patients are convinced they are being infested with animal parasites while no objective evidence exists to support this belief. The complaints are usually about skin infestation, but involvement of the gastrointestinal tract has also been described. Numerous samples are brought for examination from skin, clothes, and environmental sources, while a detailed description of the "parasite" is given. In primary DP, the delusion ...

CONCLUSIONS: As described by French, osteotomy has the ability to correct the varus deformity only in the coronal plane. However, our research supports the assumption that hyperextension in the sagittal plane might be corrected spontaneously. PMID: 30109795 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Gentileschi S, Vitale A, Rigante D, Lopalco G, Emmi G, Orlando I, Di Scala G, Sota J, Fabiani C, Frediani B, Galeazzi M, Lapadula G, Iannone F, Cantarini L Abstract BACKGROUND: Clinical research is needed to identify patients with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) who are more likely to be responsive to interleukin (IL)-17 inhibition. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate short-term efficacy of secukinumab in the management of axSpA. METHODS: Twenty-one patients (7 males, 14 females) with axSpA were consecutively treated with secukinumab. Laboratory and clinical assessments were based on erythrocyte sedimentation ...
CONCLUSIONS: Ten years of data on BCs, focusing on six PCPs, demonstrates a significant, yet insufficient reduction in the rate of contamination. High creatinine level, isolation of Streptococcus viridans, and multiple positive BCs were predictors of TrueB, while growth of CoNS was strongly predictive of contamination. This model could assist in diagnostic and therapeutic decision making. PMID: 30109793 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Dental appliances may be considered an appropriate second-choice option to treat severe OSA in patients who are noncompliant with CPAP. This study helps physicians identify patients with extremely severe OSA who are suitable for dental appliance treatment. Well-designed large-scale studies are needed to reach definitive conclusions.
