A retrospective study of dog bite occurrence and anti-rabies vaccination of dogs in a state veterinary hospital in Ogoja, Cross River State, Nigeria - Isek TI, Umoh J, Dzikwi AA.

Rabies is one of the world's major zoonoses. Controlling rabies continues to pose a major public health challenge. The issues surrounding dog bites and the vaccination of dogs against rabies are important to consider in implementing programmes to control t...

Abstract Introduction: Exposure to different prehospital emergencies (PE) may have a different impact on Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) based on the characteristics and circumstances of the emergency. The present study aimed to prioritize PE types according to their stressfulness as well as their correlation with post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). Method: In this cross-sectional study, all EMTs in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) of Hamadan province were invited to participate, voluntarily. The study questionnaire comprised of two parts: a) personal characteristics and prioritizing PE types in ...

Conclusion: The perception of health risk of contracting influenza and a primary healthcare physicians' recommendation played an important role in shaping participants' decisions towards vaccination. Primary healthcare physicians are invited to assess and if necessary adjust inappropriate prevention behaviour through their everyday patient consultations as well as add to the knowledge about influenza severity and influenza vaccination benefits to their patients.

Vamadevan, Luciano De Andrade, Jose Zelaya, Dina Balabanova, Mahmoud Umar SaniAbstractBackgroundWidespread access to good quality antihypertensive medicines is a critical component for reducing premature cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Poor-quality medicines pose serious health concerns; however, there remains a knowledge gap about the quality of cardiovascular medicines available in low- and middle-income countries.ObjectivesThe aim of ...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Nano TodayAuthor(s): Rein Verbeke, Ine Lentacker, Stefaan C. De Smedt, Heleen DewitteAbstractIn the early nineties, pioneering steps were taken in the use of mRNA as a therapeutic tool for vaccination. In the following decades, an improved understanding of the mRNA pharmacology, together with novel insights in immunology have positioned mRNA-based technologies as next-generation vaccines. This review outlines the history and current state-of-the-art in mRNA vaccination, while presenting an immunological view on mRNA vaccine development. As such, we highlight the chal...

ConclusionsThis study showed that levetiracetam was the most commonly prescribed AED. It also demonstrated no statistically significant difference in the rate of early PTSs in patients with TBI, with or without prophylactic AEDs. This is in keeping with other contemporary studies, and therefore the routine administration of prophylactic AEDs may need to be re-examined.

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Anas R. Alashram, Giuseppe Annino, Nicola Biagio MercuriAbstractWalking impairments consider one from common secondary impairments post-traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI). As the evidence showed that RAS is effective in improving the gait ability in those with other neurological disorders, we propose that RAS is also effective in those with TBI and SCI. The aim was to test our hypothesis. Two pilot studies were included. In the first study, eight individuals with TBI participated in RAS experimental 1....

This study examined the effect of NH3 on the immune response to infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) vaccination and protection against homologous serotype challenge in commercial broiler chickens. One-day-old chicks were administered IBV vaccine and exposed to 30-60 ppm of NH3. At 28 DOA, birds were challenged oculonasally with a pathogenic homologous IBV, and protection was measured by viral detection, clinical signs, ciliostasis, and presence of airsacculitis. IBV-specific serum IgG and lacrimal fluid IgA titers, as well as Harderian gland (HG) immune cell phenotypes, were evaluated. Ammonia exposure was associated ...

This study describes the establishment and validation of a method using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry for a reliable differentiation between various members of the C. diphtheriae group at species level as well as a reliable sub-level identification of C. ulcerans isolates of the WBC variant. For this study 93 C. ulcerans isolates from wildlife animals, 41 C. ulcerans isolates from other animals and humans, and 53 isolates from further representatives of the C. diphtheriae group, as well as 26 non-diphtheriae group Corynebacteria collected via the MALDI user platform from seven MALDI users were used. By assigning 86 C. ulcera...

Conclusions: These data indicate the severity of cartilage damage subsequent to MCLT+MMT surgery is related to the rat's age at the time of injury. However, despite greater levels of cartilage damage, the level of intra-articular inflammation was not necessarily affected in 3, 6, and 9 month old male rats.
