Post-Onset Shingles Rx Fails to Cut Ischemic Stroke Risk Post-Onset Shingles Rx Fails to Cut Ischemic Stroke Risk

The higher risk for stroke with herpes zoster was not attenuated by antivirals or Zostavax vaccination in older patients, but that shouldn't slow vaccination rates or further study.Medscape Medical News

To understand the causes of the slow progress in tuberculosis control, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supported a patient-pathway analysis that identified significant gaps with patients being “lost” at all points along the care cascade. Although each country differed in the reasons for failure, some comm...

Here, we performed an in silico based proteome-wide screening for antigenic B-cell derived T-cell epitopes and their following use to design a multi-epitope peptide vaccine that can effectively engage...

Abstract Strokes causing similar lesions and clinical states can be followed by diverse regains of neurological functions, indicating that the clinical recovery can depend on individual modulating factors. A promising line to disclose these factors, to finally open new therapeutic strategies, is to search for individual indices of recovery prognosis. Here, we pursued on strengthening the value of acute phase electrophysiological biomarkers for poststroke functional recovery in a wide group of patients. We enrolled 120 patients affected by a monohemispheric stroke within the middle cerebral artery territory (70 lef...

Conclusions: Adopting a pharmacist-involved team-based hypertension model could substantially improve BP control and cardiovascular outcomes in the United States. Net cost-savings among groups 2 and 3 make a compelling case for Medicare, but favorable economics may also be possible for private insurers, particularly if innovations could moderately lower the cost of delivering an effective intervention.

CONCLUSION: Mortality in CS patients due to decompensated severe AS is high, regardless of interventional treatment strategy. Both eBAV and eTAVR seem feasible. As eTAVR is associated with better initial improvements in hemodynamics and simultaneously avoids sequential interventions, it might be favorable to eBAV in select patients. If eTAVR is not available, eBAV might serve as a "bridge" to elective TAVR. PMID: 31611428 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Healthy Diets for a Zero Hunger World”. This theme is timely, especially, because across Africa and around the world, there has been a gradual rise in malnutrition and diet-related non communicable diseases, as highlighted in The Lancet study and a United Nations Report published earlier this year. While 45 percent of deaths in children are from nu...
