In refugees from 90 camps, there are low rates of primary care visits for emotional disorders and substance use compared with epilepsy, despite contrasting prevalence rates, suggesting these problems may be unattended by refugee health services.
Prof Brian Timms reviews the biology of Australian halophilic Anostracans, an order of crustaceans of which very little is known about their physiology and ecology.
Sessa and colleagues report on the new vascular connector (NVC), a hypothetical design of a vascular device, for creation and maintenance of sutureless vascular anastomosis. The authors claim that introduction of the safe and reliable NVC would shorten operation times and prevent operative and post-operative complications.
Multi-drug resistance is associated with a three-fold increase in the risk of hospital mortality in sepsis due to Gram-negative bacteremia
A tool for genome-wide visualization and analysis of mutations in Candida albicans, allowing interrogation of copy number variation,SNPs and loss of heterozygosity.
Tsompana and Buck provide an up-to-date analysis of chromatin accessibility assays, giving a perspective on future improvements necessary for moving the field of chromatin profiling forward.
Whole genome sequencing of multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii in a prolonged hospital outbreak in Birmingham, UK, advises on control and prevention strategies.
A read-mapping based tool for fast and accurate detection of genes, alleles and multi-locus sequence types from whole genome sequences for common bacterial pathogens.
Osteoblasts from osteoarthritis patients show enhanced susceptibility to Ross River virus infection, indicating osteoarthritis as a risk factor for alphavirus-induced bone pathology.
In a randomized clinical trial, sudden deafness refractory to systemic corticosteroid therapy is responsive to topical application of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), providing an alternative for patients resistant to systemic glucocorticoids.
