Universal approaches to the prevention and treatment of human diseases fail to take into account profound immune diversity resulting from genetic variations across populations. Personalized or precision medicine takes into account individual lifestyle, environment, and biology (genetics and immune status) and is being adopted in several disease intervention strategies such as cancer and heart disease. However, its application in infectious diseases, particularly global diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), is far more complex and in a state of infancy. Here, we discuss the impact of human genetic variations on immune respons...

Purpose of review Orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT) significantly improves morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage heart disease. Despite advances in surgical technique, immunosuppressive therapies, and patient monitoring, long-term risk of arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD) in the denervated heart remains unchanged. Recent findings SCD is responsible for approximately 10% of all posttransplant deaths with a pooled incidence rate of 1.30 per 100 person years and is strongly associated with cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV). Risk factors for SCD and CAV include higher donor age, younger recip...

Men of color in the United States continue to experience significant gaps in health conditions and mental health treatment options for cancer, diabetes and heart disease as compared with other ethnic groups. This is not a new issue, but rather a continuing problem that has plagued both the health and mental healthcare industry for decades. While all racial ethnicities are worthy of attention; African American men presenting with erectile dysfunction (ED) after treatment of prostate cancer in a mental health setting are the focus of this work. Reports of ED among African American men are far more common in medical settings ...

Let’s talk about the “S” word. New research shows that sex can help keep your mind sharp as tack as you grow older — and I’m not surprised. Sex can be a great tool for protecting or improving your health Researchers in the U.K. recently tested more than 6,800 people between the ages of 50 and 89. Those with active sex lives scored an amazing 23% higher on cognitive word tests than those with inactive sex lives.1 That’s because your sex hormones are linked to your brain’s reward center. And reward processing plays a fundamental role in motivation, learning and cognition —...

It is open season on erectile dysfunction. First, a politician in South Carolina introduced a bill to make it hard to get Viagra and then a politician in Kentucky. If the bills pass, they will hold patients with erectile dysfunction hostage to unrelated agendas. You might think that erections would be as politically untouchable as guns. After all, erections are nearly as popular as they are common. So how can erectile dysfunction be politically impotent? Our society has a bipolar relationship to erections. It is so extremely bipolar that it leaves little room for authentic conversation: Real men, who are neither studs nor ...

You may have heard of Dry January, a campaign run in the U.K. by Alcohol Concern. To promote alcohol awareness, it involves (as you’ve likely gathered) completely abstaining from alcohol for the month of January. It’s a valuable campaign with noble intentions, but a minority of participants may unfortunately miss the wider point. A month of strict abstinence does lead some to drink more than they should come February 1. Remaining alcohol free for a month is an achievement which deserves to be rewarded, but compensatory drinking is not what Dry January is trying to advocate. A healthy attitude towards consu...
