    Prognosis and clinical practice

    Peter Croft et al. argue that decision making in clinical practice should be based on patient prognosis as well as disease diagnosis, highlighting that this prognostic model may improve future patient outcome by incorporating more information.

    Random factors act on P. falciparum infection

    In a mathematical model, the timing of infection by Plasmodium falciparum malaria mostly depends on random factors, suggesting that parasite growth rate could be more useful than time-to-infection measures in estimating protective immunity.

  • What can we learn from animal models?

    As part of the cerebral multi-morbidity series, Baker and Götz review the contribution that transgenic animal models have made to a better mechanistic understanding of the causes and consequences of co- or multi-morbidity.

    Fetal liver affected by exposure to cigarettes

    Exposure to cigarette smoke leads to sex-specific epigenetic changes and disruption to key metabolic pathways in human fetal liver tissue (from 11-21 weeks of gestation), highlighting the impact of maternal smoking in early pregnancy.

    Nutrition supplement improves CD4 count

    A lipid-based nutritional supplement (LNS) with added micronutrients does not decrease mortality in malnourished HIV-infected adults compared with LNS alone, but improves the CD4 count, suggesting this intervention may provide clinical benefits.
