Susy Yusung and Jonathan Braun comment on a modeling study suggesting no molecular mimicry between measles antigens and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), highlighting that the findings support the safety of pediatric MMR vaccines.
Peter Byass comments on new estimates for the global burden of liver cirrhosis mortality, highlighting the challenges of this analysis and discussing the ways in which the data could be used for risk-reduction strategies.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients undergoing outpatient protease-inhibitor-based triple therapy can find the treatment physically, emotionally and socially draining, and need systematic support from specially trained professionals in symptom management.
Screens in yeast can be used to identify conserved interactions with the mismatch repair pathway to provide new avenues for cancer therapy based on synthetic lethality.
Consent for clinical tumor sequencing in children is more dependent on emotional aspects than race or ethnicity, while genomic privacy concerns are low.
Inter-hospital transfer of critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) does not increase risk of death or dialysis dependence 30 days after the initiation of acute renal replacement therapy.
There is a log-linear relationship of caries to sugar intake from 0% of energy intake (E) to 10%E sugar at where a costly burden of caries is induced, suggesting public health goals should set sugar intakes ideally less than 3%.
Peter Carmeliet reviews how metabolic pathways in endothelial cells regulate angiogenesis during cancer development, providing a hugely useful resource for the cancer metabolism field
Bronchial epithelial cells (BECs) from patients with Z variant alpha-1 antitrypsin (Z-AAT) deficiency, express and secrete Z-AAT and its polymers, suggesting that these cells are involved in the pathogenesis of emphysema and BEC dysfunction.

BioMed Central news
Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology is now accepting submissions.
Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology (NPEP) will provide a venue for researchers and clinicians interested in the applications of electrophysiological techniques for probing basic electrophysiological aberrations in neuropsychiatric disorders.
Led by Editor-in-Chief Dr Nash Boutros (University of Missouri-Kansas City), NPEP will span basic neuroscience theory, technology and methodology, as well as clinical research and practice, with a focus on moving electrophysiology laboratory findings from the bench to bedside. The journal is supported by an expert Editorial Board, and is the latest addition to our portfolio of psychiatry journals.
Cerebellum & Ataxias has now fully launched
We are delighted to announce that Cerebellum & Ataxias has now fully launched with BioMed Central and published its first articles. It is the sister journal to The Cerebellum (published by Springer), and is devoted to cerebellar research and cerebellar disorders, including scientific reports and clinical cases of the numerous forms of ataxias.
Neurovascular Imaging is now accepting submissions
Neurovascular Imaging will provide a venue for researchers and clinicians interested in neurovascular imaging techniques in health and disease, allowing for the comparison and juxtaposition of different imaging modalities, and research into the use of imaging techniques in the study, diagnosis and long-term clinical assessment of neurovascular disorders and their pathological mechanisms.
Porcine Health Management (PHM) is now accepting submissions.
BioMed is pleased to announce that this new society journal is accepting submissions. It is the official publication of the European Association for Porcine Health Management (EAPHM) and European College for Porcine Health Management (ECPHM). Both societies have institutional memberships with BioMed Central and will cover all article processing charges for their members.
PHM aims to cover all aspects of swine health medicine and production. This will include research on swine health and production, including infectious and non-infectious diseases, reproduction, epidemiology, management, economics, genetics, housing, nutrition, animal welfare and ethics, legislation, food safety, drugs and surgery.
The Editors-in-Chief of PHM are Stanley Done (just retired after a long career at the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency UK) and Guy-Pierre Martineau, an experienced veterinarian at the French National Veterinary School in Toulouse, and the journal is supported by an international editorial board of swine experts.
