Physicians ’ Experiences of Recommending the HPV Vaccine to Females with an Intellectual Disability

In conclusion, physicians were supportive of the HPV vaccine for females with an ID and perceived parents as wanting to protect their child, but uncertain about the vaccine’s necessity. Further research is needed to better understand this population’s gynecological health care needs.

Breast cancer is a leading cause of morbidity, disability and mortality in women, worldwide.[1] In 2020, breast cancer became the most diagnosed malignancy overall, surpassing lung cancer for the first time in history. It is also a major cause of death from cancer among women, accounting for 15.5% of cancer-related deaths. Breast cancer is the most prevalent malignancy with more than 7.7 million women living five years from diagnosis.[2] Data from population-based registries show that the survival at 5 years after a diagnosis of breast cancer exceeds 90% in high-income countries but is considerably lower in many low- and m...

CONCLUSION: There is a good number of cancer patients among patients referred abroad for health care. The estimated costs incurred by patients referred abroad for cancer care are far greater than funds needed to setup modern cancer care centres in Burundi.PMID:35036843 | PMC:PMC8751540 | DOI:10.24248/eahrj.v5i2.668

In conclusion, our studies suggested that engrafted OPCs promoted the recovery after ischemic stroke by enhancing endogenous oligodendrogenesis, neurite growth, and synaptogenesis; the last two being mediated by the Netrin-1/DCC axis. Rejuvenating the Gut Microbiome of Aged Mice in Various Ways The gut microbiome changes with age in a number of different ways that are detrimental to long term health. Firstly, inflammatory microbial populations increase in number, rousing the immune system to constant...

We examined prescription medication use and identified correlates of polypharmacy —taking multiple medications—in adolescent and young adult cancer survivors (AYAs), who experience early-onset chronic conditions.MethodsOur cross-sectional study pooled data (2008 –2017) from the national Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. We estimated prevalence of polypharmacy (≥ 5 unique prescription medications over an approximate 1-year period) in AYAs (age 18–39 years with a history of cancer) and age- and sex-matched controls, overall and by sociodemographics, clinical factors, and health indicato...

After cardiovascular disease, cancer is the second most prevalent cause of death in our species. One of the most important parts of a future toolkit of diverse rejuvenation therapies is a robustly effective, low-cost universal cancer therapy, one that can be applied to near all cancers with little need for customization. The best approach to that end is likely some form of interference in telomere lengthening. Unlike other known differences in cancer cells, this is plausibly the one aspect of cancer biochemistry that is both vital and immune to mutational change. A cancer can evolve its way out from under many forms of tre...

In Australia, injury is the leading cause of death and disability in children, accounting for more potential life years lost than cancer and heart disease combined[1]. There were over half a million paediatric presentations to Australian Emergency Departments (EDs) following injury or poisoning in 2018-19[2]. Routinely collected details about children sustaining major injury in NSW is limited to those treated at designated trauma centres, with only minimum data available with mortality as the main outcome measure.

ConclusionsExisting research suggests approximately 25% of people with constitutionalPTEN mutations may meet criteria for or have characteristics of ASD. Studies have also begun to establish a range of possible cognitive impairments in affected individuals, especially when ASD is also reported. However, further large-scale studies are needed to elucidate psychological/behavioural corollaries of this mutation, and how they may relate to physiological/physical characteristics.
