This article will explore 5 of our favourite examples of technologies that were initially alien to healthcare but are becoming integral parts of it. 1. Want to cure diseases? Let’s play a game! If your Mum told you as a child that video games aren’t any good, then now you might want to give her a call to tell her that she was wrong. Case in point: Foldit, an online computer game where players can contribute to better understand proteins and ultimately, help curing diseases. By solving puzzles, anyone, without any prior biochemistry knowledge, can try to fold protein structures as perfectly as possible to ...

ConclusionsThrough review of the literature on flu vaccination in immunocompromised patients we show how this could be extrapolated to patients with significant burns. We propose a guideline to aid in the decision to prescribe flu vaccine to patients with significant burns taking into account age, % TBSA burn and comorbidity. The decision to recommend the flu vaccine in this group should be considered on an individual basis. However, flu vaccination represents a simple, low-risk measure which could prevent the dangerous complications of influenza in an at risk group.

This study demonstrates for the first time that senescent cells secrete functional LTs, significantly contributing to the LTs pool known to cause or exacerbate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Against Senolytics https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/against-senolytics/ There is no consensus in science that is so strong as to have no heretics. So here we have an interview with a naysayer on the matter of senolytic treatments, who argues that the loss of senescent cells in aged tissues will cause more harm to long-term health than the damage they will do by remaining. To be clear, I think this to be a ...

This report presents data on cVDPV outbreaks detected during January 2018-June 2019 (as of September 30, 2019). Compared with January 2017-June 2018 (3), the number of reported cVDPV outbreaks more than tripled, from nine to 29; 25 (86%) of the outbreaks were caused by cVDPV2. The increase in the number of outbreaks in 2019 resulted from VDPV2 both inside and outside of mOPV2 response areas. GPEI is planning future use of a novel type 2 OPV, stabilized to decrease the likelihood of reversion to neurovirulence. However, all countries must maintain high population immunity to decrease the risk for cVDPV emergence. Cessation ...

TAUNTON (CBS) – Flu season is here, and for a Taunton family with two babies battling a rare disease, the months are particularly stressful. From the outside, they appear picture-perfect: Amanda and Billy Bettuchi and their three beautiful kids. But you can’t tell a whole health story just by looking. “It’s Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), so Shane was born with no immune system at all. They have to go through chemo first for 10 days and then they get the bone marrow transplant after that at three months old,” mom Amanda (Acorn) Bettuchi explained. Sweet Shane, not even a year old, is ...

Abstract Poliovirus (PV) environmental surveillance was established in Haiti in three sites each in Port-au-Prince and Gonaïves, where sewage and fecal-influenced environmental open water channel samples were collected monthly from March 2016 to February 2017. The primary objective was to monitor for the emergence of vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) and the importation and transmission of wild polioviruses (WPVs). A secondary objective was to compare two environmental sample processing methods, the gold standard two-phase separation method and a filter method (bag-mediated filtration system [BMFS]). In ad...

Abstract During May 19-September 28, 2019,* low levels of influenza activity were reported in the United States, with cocirculation of influenza A and influenza B viruses. In the Southern Hemisphere seasonal influenza viruses circulated widely, with influenza A(H3) predominating in many regions; however, influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 and influenza B viruses were predominant in some countries. In late September, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended components for the 2020 Southern Hemisphere influenza vaccine and included an update to the A(H3N2) and B/Victoria-lineage components. Annual influenza vaccination i...
