Prevalence of Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Asymptomatic Renal Transplant Recipients.

CONCLUSIONS: Sexually transmitted diseases may occur more frequently in sexually active asymptomatic renal transplant recipients than in nontransplanted individuals. Real-time multiplex polymerase chain reaction analysis may be a suitable method for determining these pathogens. PMID: 29619908 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study, for instance, attributes a patient’s waitlist/transplant outcome to the very last dialysis facility the patient was associated with.  In epidemiology speak, this means the causal inference authors are trying to draw between for-profit status and good transplant outcomes is subject to time-varying confounding. As an example, if one is seeking an association between testosterone levels and risk of a heart attack, using the last testosterone level available would be a poor way of doing this study because testosterone levels are known to vary over time. The same applies to dialysis facilities. Patie...

BACKGROUND: Premarital sex can increase the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in adolescents, and lack of premarital sex can be considered as a reliable policy for STD prevention, which is used by some countries such as Iran. Since the success o...

This study aimed to explore the relationship between short-term exposure to ambient pollutants and daily outpatient visits for HPV infections in China. Data of daily outpatient visits for HPV infections were obtained from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2018 (1826 days). Over-dispersed Poisson generalized additive models were applied by adjusting weather conditions and day of the week. We identified a total of 39,746 cases for HPV infections. A 10 μg/m3 increase of PM10, PM2.5, SO2, and NO2 or a 0.1 mg/m3 rise of CO in concurrent day (lag 0) concentrations was related to an elevation of 0.822% (95% Cl: 0.282%,...

Lung transplantation can dramatically transform the lives of patients with a variety of end-stage lung diseases. Yet, there remain insufficient organs for all who need them. The shortage of organs has led to a decades-long search for alternative sources of donor lungs. One intriguing area of research, which has been spurred on by advances in tissue engineering, involves the use of donor organ decellularized scaffolds that are “reconstituted” by seeding recipient epithelial and endothelial cells onto the scaffold to create an entirely new and ostensibly fully compatible organ.

Biofilms formed by the fungal pathogen Candida albicans are resistant to many of the antifungal agents commonly used in the clinic. Previous reports suggest that protease inhibitors, specifically inhibitors of aspartyl proteases, could be effective antibiofilm agents. We screened three protease inhibitor libraries, containing a total of 80 compounds for the abilities to prevent C. albicans biofilm formation and to disrupt mature biofilms. The compounds were screened individually and in the presence of subinhibitory concentrations of the most commonly prescribed antifungal agents for Candida infections: fluconazole, amphote...
