Why a common antibiotic treating diarrhea is failing
(University of Houston) Clostridioides difficile (C-diff), a bacterium that causes diarrhea and colitis, is easily picked up in hospitals, but not so easily fought. After 30 years, the most commonly prescribed antibiotic used to fight it, metronidazole, known commonly by the brand name Flagyl, is no longer as effective as it used to be and a University of Houston pharmaceutical researcher aims to find out why.

The Use of Amoxicillin (500mg) Plus Metronidazole (500mg) For 7 Days Adds Adjunctive Benefits For Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy, But Limited Evidence Supports Higher/Longer Dose
ConclusionsBased on the studies reviewed, no recommendations for the optimal duration of the antibiotic course can be given. However, based on the principles of responsible antibiotics use, the highest dose with the shortest duration of time is recommended to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance. Therefore, a 7-day regimen of 500/500 mg or 500/400 mg of amoxicillin and metronidazole would be most appropriate. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

Analysis of Fusobacterium persistence and antibiotic response in colorectal cancer
Colorectal cancers comprise a complex mixture of malignant cells, nontransformed cells, and microorganisms. Fusobacterium nucleatum is among the most prevalent bacterial species in colorectal cancer tissues. Here we show that colonization of human colorectal cancers with Fusobacterium and its associated microbiome—including Bacteroides, Selenomonas, and Prevotella species—is maintained in distal metastases, demonstrating microbiome stability between paired primary and metastatic tumors. In situ hybridization analysis revealed that Fusobacterium is predominantly associated with cancer cells in the metastatic les...

Laparoscopic modified radical hysterectomy for cystadenoma – Clare ’ s story
The post Laparoscopic modified radical hysterectomy for cystadenoma – Clare’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I was referred to a gynaecologist for post menopausal bleeding 3 months ago. He did a vaginal ultrasound and saw a cyst. Removal of the ovary was mentioned as a possibility because of my age (55) but he first ordered a MRI for further information because of the bleeding. This showed a solid area in the cyst which I was told could mean borderline or early ovarian cancer so the decision was taken to do a BSO and hysterectomy within 30 days with the possibility of further surgery to the l...

The STD You've Probably Never Heard Of
The Basics Trichomoniasis (trich) is a common STI caused by a tiny parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. An estimated 3.7 million people are infected, but because only about 30 percent show symptoms, most people don't know they have it until they get a positive test result. How You Get It The parasite gets passed during unprotected vaginal sex (can be from penis to vagina, vagina to penis, or vagina to vagina). Trich usually doesn't affect other areas, like the mouth or anus, which means this is one STD that is relatively uncommon for gay and bisexual men. What's It Like? Here's where the not-fun part comes in: When trich...
