;n Torres F Abstract Seasonal influenza is a major public health problem, particularly in older people. Influenza vaccine is the most effective way to prevent influenza virus infection and its complications, but due to immunosenescence, older people do not respond efficiently to immunization. In 2009, a high-dose trivalent influenza vaccine (IIV3-HD), containing four times more antigen than the standard-dose vaccine, was approved in the United States for the immunization of people aged 65 years and over. Numerous clinical trials, carried out at different seasons and using different methodologies, have shown that t...

CONCLUSIONS: This systematic review shows that screening programmes followed by DAAs treatment is cost-effective not only for high risk population but for general population too. Because today HCV can be easily cured and its long-term consequences avoided, a universal HCV screening plus DAAs therapies should be the recommended strategy to achieve the WHO objectives for HCV eradication by 2030.

In adults 40 years and older, it affects more than 10% of the population and has enormous personal, family and social burden. Tobacco smoking is its main cause, but not the only one, and there is probably a genetic predisposition that increases the risk in some patients. The paradigm of this disease is changing in Spain, with an increase of women that has occurred in recent years. Many of the physio pathological mechanisms of th...
