Compassion & Choices Annual Report

Compassion &Choices has released its 2018-2019 annual report.   Here are a few excerpts: Compassion &Choices realized transformational progress in 2018-2019. We passed medical aid in dying in New Jersey, cheered a second victory in Maine and advanced legislation in dozens more states." "We took on the reality that current medical aid-in-dying laws are in fact too restrictive — placing too many needless hurdles in front of eligible, profoundly anguished patients." "We expanded efforts to address disparities in end-of-life care within communities of color, promoting the awareness and tools necessary for more of their members to seize their own empowerment." "At a time of profound division in our country, we are heartened that the universal idea of patients having a voice in their own care is a value everyone can agree on."

The main aim of this study was to assess possible...

Conclusions: EVs from buffaloes infected with Theileria spp. were successfully isolated and characterized. This is an advance in the knowledge of host-parasite relationship that contributes to the understanding of host immune response and theileriosis evasion mechanisms. These findings may pave the way for searching new EVs candidate-markers for a better production of safe biological products derived from buffaloes.

Conclusion: Our results suggest a different biochemical composition of S. polymorpha venom, based on the different effects of four venom fractions on the cells tested, according to statistical evidence. Fractions F6 and F7 caused the most important alterations.
