Health And Climate Change: An Urgent Need For Action
The human face of climate change is its impact on our health. Higher temperatures intensify air pollution and respiratory illness. Changing weather patterns lead to drought and then famine, while increasing rains in other areas will create the breeding ground for disease and pandemics. While the policy changes needed to blunt climate change are surely substantial, the cost of ignoring the science behind climate change will be felt through its harmful effects on our health.

In vitro and in vivo antifungal profile of a novel and long acting inhaled azole, PC945, on Aspergillus fumigatus infection.
The profile of PC945, a novel triazole antifungal, designed for administration via inhalation, has been assessed in a range of in vitro and in vivo studies. PC945 was characterized as a potent, tight-binding inhibitor of Aspergillus fumigatus sterol 14 α-demethylase (CYP51A and CYP51B) activity (IC50, 0.23 μM and 0.22 μM, respectively), with characteristic type II azole binding spectra. Against 96 clinically isolated A. fumigatus strains, the MIC values of PC945 ranged from 0.032∼>8 μg/ml, whilst those of voriconazole ranged from 0.064∼4 μg/ml.

Parents told to use pram covers to protect babies from air pollution
Conclusion This study aimed to investigate the pollution that babies and young children are exposed to, whether in the pram or carried by adults, on different school drop-off and pick-up walking routes. It generally found that the concentrations of fine particulates (PMC and PNC) were higher during morning hours, particularly around traffic intersections and bus stops. Experimental studies like this one are useful for testing hypotheses but there are a few points worth noting: The study assessed a single town. They would need to compare their findings with many more assessments on different routes, and in different towns...
