Why the measles outbreak has roots in today's political polarization

♪ Seizing our newborn infants,Blighting their lives with pain;Filling their veins with poison,Tainting each tender brain ♫So go the lyrics of theAnti-Compulsory Vaccination Hymn, circulated not by the modern-day anti-vaccine bandthe Refusers but by the Anti-Vaccination Society of America....

This study aimed to evaluate: (i) the effectiveness of plasma activated water (PAW) on the germination capacity of mung bean seeds and (ii) the antimicrobial capacity of PAW. A specially designed set-up composed of two electrochemical cell was used to produce two different types of PAW, by surface plasma discharge ignited from copper cathode and copper anode, respectively. The germination capacity of mung bean seeds was assessed over 96 h incubation in the dark at 25 °C. The antimicrobial capacity of PAW was assessed against 6 h exposure to Escherichia coli NCTC 12900. The anodic PAW (rich in NO3−) indicate...

Previous studies demonstrated that secondary bacterial infection could enhance HP-PRRSV infection-mediated inflammatory responses, but it is unknown whether early bacterial infection could enhance the HP-PRRSV MLV-like infectio...

Authors: Kikutani K, Itai J, Ota K, Chosa K, Yamane Y, Shime N Abstract Bronchial artery aneurysms are a rare but potentially life-threatening complications because of the massive hemothorax or hemoptysis that occurs with ruptures. A 79-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital because of the sudden onset of back pain, syncope, and subsequent hypotension. Computed tomography showed a left bronchial artery aneurysm with bilateral hemothorax and hemomediastinum. Transcatheter bronchial artery embolization failed because of the anatomical location, and she went into cardiopulmonary arrest. Cardiopulmonary resusci...

Authors: Zakir HM, Masuda Y, Kitagawa J Abstract Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) is a polymodal receptor channel, which plays an important role in pain transduction. It is important to understand the functional expression of this channel under neuropathic pain (NP) conditions. A novel method was used to investigate the dynamics of functional expression of this channel on regenerated neurons under NP conditions following trigeminal nerve injury using a combination of a permanently charged sodium channel blocker (QX-314) and a TRPV1 agonist (capsaicin; QX-CAP). The combination was originally introduc...

This study conducted experiments to assess (1) whether neural activity, indicated by Fos expression in an NRM that has experienced MM injury, is affected by the stress of repeated forced swim tests (FST); and (2) whether the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine administered daily after an FST could affect the number of Fos-positive neurons in the NRM. Results revealed that the stress from repeated FSTs significantly increased the number of Fos-positive neurons in an NRM that had been affected by MM injury. Fluoxetine inhibited increases in the number of Fos-positive neurons in the NRM that occurred as a result...

In this study, we describe the titration tools elaborated to assess the titre of rVSV-ZEBOV productions.- A streamlined Median Tissue Culture Infectious Dose (TCID50) assay to determine the infectious titer of this vaccine was established.- A digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) assay to assess the total number of viral particles present in cell-free culture supernatants of rVSV productions was developed.- These assays are used to titre rVSV-ZEBOV samples and characterize the ratio of total particles to infectious units for monitoring process robustness and product quality attributes and can be used to titre samples ge...

Conclusion Doctors often assure parents that vaccines are safe, using phrases like “one in a million” and “rare” to describe adverse reactions. Yet, with sad stories like RD’s, thousands of adverse events reported to VAERS, and the creation of a special court for vaccine injuries, informed parents know those vaccine safety claims are simply not true. If you have not already done so, please consider the overall safety of vaccinations. A federal program has awarded billions of dollars, through an arduous, emotionally painful process, to people whose family members have suffered injury or death a...

Germany is expecting up to 1.5 million asylum-seekers in 2015 who need shelter, food, and access to basic services. The continued influx of migrants is a major challenge for Germany’s health care system, which is tasked with providing essential medical services for the new arrivals — and may have to deal with novel and unexpected challenges such as mushroom poisoning among foraging asylum-seekers and refugees. How does a system geared toward providing comprehensive coverage to a population of 80 million deal with a large number of new migrants? And how can policies be crafted to respond to this challenge? Acces...
