    Clinical score predicts COPD mortality

    A clinical score predicts short-term mortality risk in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that attend the emergency department, suggesting the score could help guide clinical decision making.

    Verbal autopsy can quantify SCD burden

    Verbal autopsy tools have strong agreement with hospital diagnoses in identifying sickle cell disease (SCD) as a cause of death in children, suggesting they will be useful to quantify the contribution of SCD to childhood mortality in Africa.

  • TNF alpha inhibitor therapy can decrease erosion

    Axial spondyloarthritis patients receiving tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha inhibitor therapy experience greater fat metaplasia and less erosion in the sacroiliac joints in comparison to standard therapy.

  • Surveillance leads to rabies reduction

    Introduction of a national surveillance programme for rabies has led to a reduction in incidence of the disease with regulation of post-exposure prophylaxis quality together with improved management and vaccination of domesticated animals key for its success.

    Understanding retinal regeneration

    Following injury of the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE), dedifferentiation and increased FGF2 expression initiate repair, but Del Rio-Tsonis and colleagues identify the importance of the RNA binding factor Lin28, which can direct the complete reprogramming of the RPE in this regeneration process in the chick eye.
