Rallis Viral skin infections often affect the sports community. The aim of this study was to assess the rates, location sites, and seasons of appearance of common viral cutaneous diseases in beach volleyball athletes in Greece. Five hundred and forty-nine beach volleyball athletes participated in this study. The average age was 28.4 years. The viral infections were herpes simplex (type 1), molluscum contagiosum and warts. The measured parameters included: gender, age, the season when athletes may be more susceptible to infections and the location of infection in the body. Practicing information such as the number of t...

Susana Caxaj, Helene Berman, Deanna Befus Housing, Care and Support, Vol. ahead-of-print, No. ahead-of-print, pp.- People experiencing homelessness are uniquely vulnerable to the impacts of a pandemic, such as COVID-19. Therefore, governments across Canada have been implementing a patchwork of responses to address the needs of those who are homeless at this time. The purpose of this study is to both compile and assess the varying responses by exploring the breadth of actions presented i...
ConclusionThere is no association between early initiation of adjuvant chemotherapy and post-operative complications including wound healing. Early initiation of chemotherapy ( ≤ 7 days) is feasible in unilateral WT or high-risk neuroblastoma patients who are otherwise doing well without resulting in a preponderance of wound healing complications.

DEMENTIA is a general term for symptoms associated with progressive brain decline, such as memory loss. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine , you should "avoid" a particular vitamin supplement because it can contribute to your risk of the progressive brain decline.
We present a case of an otherwise healthy 34-year-old male who developed end-stage pulmonary fibrosis following COVID-19 infection. He achieved haemodynamic stability with mechanical ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) but did not show any sign of weaning off ECMO; however, he successfully underwent bilateral lung transplantation.
DIABETES is a lifelong condition that can cause serious health woes for those affected by it - here are the 10 hidden symptoms to look out for.
Background: Recurrent acute otitis media in the first years of life can be explained by immune dysfunction. Consequently, it would be expected that otitis-prone (OP) children would be more susceptible to other infectious diseases, especially respiratory infections, since a component of the immune problem involves nasopharyngeal innate immunity. Design: Cohort study with prospective identification of all physician-diagnosed, medically attended respiratory illness visits in children 6 months to 5 years of age to determine the incidence of pneumonia, acute sinusitis, influenza and other bacterial and viral infectio...
This study assessed whether disparities in MIS-C in the United States by race and ethnicity exceed known disparities in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) incidence. Methods: We compared the distribution of race and ethnicity among patients with MIS-C (
