Lower-extremity Dynamometry as a Novel Outcome Measure in a Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Feasibility Trial of Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) for HIV-associated Myelopathy
Conclusion: We conclude that an adequately powered clinical trial of IVIG for HIVM would likely require a prolonged recruitment period and multiple participating sites. Lower limb dynamometry is a useful outcome measure for HIVM, which might also be useful in other HIV-related gait disorders.

Commentary on: Hines DA, Douglas EM. Health problems of partner violence victims: comparing help-seeking men to a population-based sample. Am J Prev Med 2015;48:136–44. Implications for practice and research High blood pressure, asthma, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are health indicators of female-to-male partner violence (PV).

Abstract 5267: Comorbidity and cause of death in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)
Conclusions. Despite the advanced age at CLL diagnosis, the frequent presence of comorbidities, and the indolent nature of the disease, CLL progression is the ultimate cause of death in 51% of newly diagnosed CLL patients, with an additional 26% dying of causes potentially related to CLL, such as infections and second cancers. The influence of comorbidities and other clinical factors at diagnosis (e.g. smoking, Charlson Comorbidity Index) on survival and ultimate cause of death are being abstracted, and will be presented at the meeting.Citation Format: Paolo Strati, Kari Chaffe, Sara Achenbach, Timothy Call, Neil Kay, Jame...

NICE: 'schools should provide morning-after pill'
Conclusion Everyone makes mistakes, but if you find yourself relying on the morning-after pill as a regular method of contraception, you may want to speak to a healthcare professional about what would be the most suitable form of ongoing contraception for you to use. This could include methods that do not involve needing to take a daily pill, such as contraceptive patches, injections or an implant. However, none of these methods will protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Condoms are cheap, free of side effects and they will protect you against STIs such as chlamydia.
