Vaccination Capability Inventory of Community, Migrant, and Homeless Health Centers: A Survey Report

Discussion: Health centers provide most adult vaccines to their patients despite financial and technological barriers to optimal provisioning. Further studies at point of care could help identify mechanisms for system improvements.

In conclusion, our results suggest a previously unknown mechanism whereby the canonical NF-κB cascade and a mitochondrial fission pathway interdependently regulate endothelial inflammation. Lin28 as a Target for Nerve Regeneration https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/05/lin28-as-a-target-for-nerve-regeneration/ Researchers here show that the gene Lin28 regulates axon regrowth. In mice, raised levels of Lin28 produce greater regeneration of nerve injuries. Past research has investigated Lin28 from the standpoint of producing a more general improvement in regenerative capacity. It improves mitoch...

The paper here offers a good overview of recent research and development aimed at improving the effectiveness of vaccines in old people. Vaccines are only poorly effective in the old because of the age-related decline of the immune system. A great deal of effort, with only some success, has gone into trying to improve vaccine effectiveness in older populations. Even if tinkering with vaccines boosts the percentage of patients who exhibit an immune response, however, that response is always going to be more anemic than that of a younger person, given the effects of aging on the immune system. This time and funding would per...

This article summarizes the clinical questions and bottom-line answers from the top 20 POEMs of 2019. Taking blood pressure medications at night results in a large mortality reduction over six years compared with morning dosing. Automated devices are the best way to measure blood pressure. Nonfasting lipid profiles are preferred over fasting lipid profiles, and nonfasting and fasting lipid profiles are equally effective at predicting risk. The benefit of statins for primary prevention in people 75 years and older is uncertain at best. Aspirin has no net benefit for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and has no ef...

The objective of this study is to characterize trends in HZV utilization, racial disparities, and treatment patterns in the United States. Data from the 1993 –2015 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey were analyzed, including 15,400,000 weighted primary acute HZV visits in adults. Overall, the weighted frequency (95% confidence interval) of HZV visits increased from 1993–1998 to 2007–2015 (1,269,815 [565,455–1,974,175]–8,017,911 [6,424,491– 9,611,331],P = 0.0001). HZV visits were associated with African–American (38.8% [35.8–41.7%] vs. 8.2% [7.4–9.0%]) ...

For this month ’s issue of Annals, which focuses on vaccines, I’ve selected 3 article summaries from recent Allergy Watch that reviewed studies on various aspects of vaccines. The first reports data from the pivotal study showing the improved efficacy of the new recombinant subunit herpes zoster vaccine. The n ext review describes a report of a unique vaccine for cats that induces IgG blocking antibodies for Fel d 1. The last review shows discrepant results of pneumococcal titers from different labs.

For this month's issue of Annals, which focuses on vaccines, there are 3 article summaries from recent AllergyWatch columns that reviewed studies on various aspects of vaccines. The first reports data from a pivotal study on the improved efficacy of the new recombinant subunit herpes zoster vaccine. The second review describes a report of a unique vaccine for cats that induces immunoglobulin G –blocking antibodies for Fel d 1. The third review reports discrepant results of pneumococcal titers from different laboratories.
