Yet Another Study Shows There ’s No Link Between the Measles Vaccine and Autism

In this study, the scientists addressed some potential criticisms of how previous studies were designed in order to provide additional evidence to inform concerned parents. “We see vaccine skepticism growing,” says the study’s lead author Anders Hviid, an investigator at the Statens Serum Institut, the national public health organization in Denmark. “So we thought it was a good idea to revisit the hypothesis and try to get scientific answers to the different criticisms from skeptics of the original study.” Hviid and his colleagues analyzed data involving more than 650,000 children born in Denmark between 1999 and 2010, and followed them for up to 13 years. Because Danish identification records include detailed health information, the team could link MMR immunizations and autism diagnoses. Overall, the children vaccinated with MMR did not develop autism at a significantly different rate than those who were not vaccinated. The researchers also separately analyzed children who might be at higher risk of developing the disorder, including those from families with other siblings with autism, or children with risk factors for autism. They found no higher rate of autism among these children. The researchers also looked at the timing of autism diagnoses and found that they did not cluster soon after an MMR vaccination. They found no higher rate of autism among kids who received other childhood vaccinations. Hviid and his colleagues published similar wor...

This study investigates the distribution of femoral metastases in cancer patients, specifically addressing the incidence of distal femoral metastases. PET/CT examinations routinely extend only to mid-thigh level, precluding detection of distal metastases. We found a total of 208 femoral metastases in 112 patients. 30% had distal femoral metastases in addition to other areas of involvement. 7% of patients with femoral metastases had only distal femur disease. 6 patients had distal pathologic fractures. Exclusion of the distal femur during PET/CT may result in a missed or delayed diagnosis that could contribute to the develo...

Authors: Xu H, Dong L, Bin Z, Yansong H, Shaofeng L, Chang L, Chen C, Changli W Abstract Despite the excellent efficacy and low toxicity of photoresponse therapy, which has attracted considerable attention for use in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) therapy, unsatisfactory cellular permeability, and instability, both in vitro and in vivo have limited further clinical applications of indole cyanine photosensitizers. Here, we explore the supramolecular self-assembly of a 'hyalurosome' that is mediated by calcium phosphate nanonuclei. Through hyaluronate-mediated CD44 targeting, the constructed hyalurosome...

To determine the adherence to the recommended practices for performing a risk-reducing bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (RRBSO) as described by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and Society of Gynecologic Oncology. We sought to determine if adherence differed by type of training i.e., gynecologic oncologists versus benign gynecologists. Additionally, we aimed to determine the incidence of ovarian cancer diagnosed at the time of RRBSO in a large cohort of patients with a BRCA mutation.

The increasing number of cancer patients and prolonged periods of illness have led to an increase in nurses' stress and various other problems. This research aimed to identify the stress resulting from caring for cancer patients and the methods for coping with stress among cancer care nurses. The research subjects were 180 clinical nurses caring for cancer patients in a hospital in Korea. Stress caused by excessive workloads, inappropriate compensation, and interpersonal conflicts with physicians was high. There was a difference in stress according to age. Coping strategies differed according to religion, education, occupa...

The rise of vaccine-preventable illnesses, such as measles and hepatitis, in the United States and around the globe has been alarming in recent years. For women — especially those hoping to become pregnant, as well as women who are pregnant or have recently had a baby — vaccines can be a worrisome topic. There are many misconceptions about vaccine safety in and around pregnancy that can lead to confusion and unnecessary fear of a lifesaving medical tool. As a practicing ob/gyn, I often discuss vaccines with my patients and help them sort out fears versus facts. Which vaccines should you consider before concepti...
