COVID-19 and the assault on fundamental rights
By C R AbrarMay 11 2020 (IPS-Partners) A spectre is haunting the conscientious citizens of Bangladesh—the spectre of the Digital Security Act, 2018 (DSA). By now the law has become synonymous with curtailment of freedom of expression and repression.

Individualized mosaics of microbial strains transfer from the maternal to the infant gut
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Researchers have used a microbiome 'fingerprint' method to report that an individualized mosaic of microbial strains is transmitted to the infant gut microbiome from a mother giving birth through vaginal delivery. They detailed this transmission by analyzing existing metagenomic databases of fecal samples from mother-infant pairs, as well as analyzing mouse dam and pup transmission in a germ-free, or gnotobiotic, mouse model, where the dams were inoculated with human fecal microbes.

This study is open also to patients with lung cancer or urothelial cancer. In the trial, the use of cabozantinib will be combined with standard-of-care Alimta, the chemotherapy drug generically known as pemetrexed. The study is designed to establish a safe and effective dosage level for both agents when used together. Cabozantinib is known as an inhibitor.
