[The global measles crisis-a diversity of causes from armed conflicts to vaccination skepticism].
CONCLUSION: The reasons for the global measles crisis are manifold and in some cases have existed for decades. However, the consequences appear to be accumulating and have had a dramatic impact on case numbers since 2018. The goal of measles elimination and maintenance of the necessary vaccination programs is a constant challenge that requires strict and permanent compliance with WHO recommendations. The number of measles cases reported in Germany is still at a level above the key target for measles elimination specified in the national immunization plan. Timely and/or locally restricted as well as nationwid...

CONCLUSION: SPHC is used more frequently than previously reported, while PPC is declining. Utilization seems to be based less on objective needs than on region-specific framework conditions. Besides needs criteria, further development of palliative care should be oriented more towards outcomes and relevant framework conditions.

[Healthcare provision for asylum seekers in reception centres : Qualitative survey from the perspective of healthcare providers].
Abstract During the time of increased in-migration of asylum seekers to Germany in 2015 and 2016, different models of healthcare provision were established in reception centres, often on an ad hoc basis and influenced by local actors. The goal of this study was to map different care models and identify challenges in the implementation of effective and needs-based health service structures.Data was generated through 13 semi-structured interviews and in an interactive workshop with group discussions. An analysis was conducted using a qualitative content analysis method. Participants were stakeholders from ...

[Brain death criterion and organ donation: current neuroscientific perspective].
Abstract In academic and public debate, the meaning of irreversible loss of brain function as a reliable sign of death (brain death criterion) is repeatedly challenged. In the present article, six prototypical theses against the brain death criterion are discussed: 1) the nonsuperiority of brain versus other organs, 2) the unreliability of brain death diagnostics, 3) the preserved perception of pain in brain death, 4) the (spontaneous) sexual maturation and preserved reproductive function in brain death, 5) the symmetry of brain death and embryonic stage, and 6) the equaliza...

Some infants show psychological or somatic stress in the form of early regulatory disorders. While the close connection between parental psychological stress, early regulatory disorders, and the development of the parent-child relationship is well documented, current data on effective treatment options are lacking. Previous care services mostly operate on a preventive basis; evidence-based psychotherapeutic services with a special focus on the parent-child relationship are rare.SKKIP...

Abstract Novel immune therapies are more and more based on the molecular differentiation of disease patterns and related clinical studies are thus more often characterized by so-called adaptive study designs (umbrella or basket studies including platform studies), which are continuously adjusted based on novel results. This paper analyses new study designs beyond the often-postulated need for regulation in order to identify ethical problems based on typical structural features and to - whenever possible - suggest solutions. Additionally to the relationship between social and scientific values of a study as we...

Abstract Biosimilars are medicinal products that are highly similar to approved biopharmaceuticals. Biosimilars enable patient access to biological therapies that would otherwise be restricted or delayed due to cost reasons. After the successful introduction of low-molecular biosimilars in 2006, highly complex monoclonal antibodies have also been available since 2013 as biosimilars for treating autoimmune diseases and oncologic indications. In principle, the biosimilar concept can be applied to all well-characterized biologicals; in the future, blood clotting factors or drugs containing nucleic acids, such as DNA ...

[Individualized immunotherapy for malignant tumors using peptide vaccines-maybe it does work after all?]
MW Abstract The physician and scientist Paul Ehrlich put forward the thesis that the immune system not only fights infections but can also fight cancer. The possible positive effects of a simultaneous infection on the course of cancer were reported in ancient Egypt around 2600 BC. However, it was not until the 1960s that it became apparent that the immune system could specifically fight cancer cells, and it was not until the 1990s that researchers slowly clarified how this happens.Against this background, the efforts over the last 30 years to develop therapeutic vaccines against cancers are briefly summ...

Abstract Sera of animal origin and hyperimmunoglobulins have dominated serum therapy for a century.

Abstract The interest in using geographic methods for health monitoring has grown strongly over the last two decades.

The application in health monitoring is possible mostly due to broader technical possibilities and more available datasets. In this article, we show which geographic aspects are adapted in health monitoring at different levels (federal, state, municipality).For example, at the federal level, surveillance methods are used; at the state level health atlases are created; and on the muni...

In view of the highly effective medical intervention options for syphilis, HIV, and hepatitis B, the aim should be to test pregnant women in Germany as completely as possible. The reasons for the lack of screening must be further investigated and starting points for increasing the use must be identified.

[Genetic counseling in Germany: development of demand].
DISCUSSION: Demand for genetic counseling has steadily increased at an average rate of approximately 6% per year since 2009. This increase started well before the enactment of the GenDG and may be attributed to a multiplicity of factors. Change in demand for genetic counseling is characterized by increasing self-referrals and by increasing referrals by specialists other than obstetricians/gynecologists. Waiting times between 2011 and 2016/2017 have increased. While demand has been growing, the number of key service providers, the contracted medical specialists in human genetics, has remained almost constant. It is for...

[Health reporting as part of public health surveillance: the example of diabetes].
e T Abstract The continuous collection and analysis of health data on relevant diseases (surveillance) is at the core of public health. The surveillance enables the implementation of measures to protect the populations' health. Therefore, relevant information needs to be provided in a timely and target-group-specific manner to the respective stakeholders.A dissemination strategy supports the effective communication of results and considers three key questions: (1) "What content is relevant to the surveillance?", (2) "Who requires which information?" and (3) "How ar...
