Nowadays, paralytic polio occurs in few people in developed countries, and it's because of polio ... more

Vasovagal syncope

Vasovagal syncope

The most common cause of fainting is vasovagal syncope. When someone’s body reacts to such triggers as extreme emotional distress and the sight of blood in an exaggerated way, this condition occurs. A sudden drop in the heart rate and blood pressure will be caused by the trigger, which will reduce blood flow to the brain and cause the person to briefly lose consciousness.

Enterocele

Enterocele

The muscles and ligaments (pelvic floor) that support the bladder, uterus, colon and small intestine could be weakened due to childbirth and aging, causing one or more of these organs to drop or prolapse. One of the conditions that results from this is an enterocele.   When the small intestine, also called small bowel, drops into the lower pelvic cavity and protrudes into the vagina creating a bulge, an enterocele occurs, which ... more

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

The Lancet, 380/9838 Published: 2012-07-21

Strong evidence shows that physical inactivity increases the risk of many adverse health conditions, including major non-communicable diseases such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers, and shortens life expectancy. Because much of the world's population is inactive, this link presents a major public health issue

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

The Lancet, doi:10.1016 Published: 2012-07-23

The emergence and spread of high levels of HIV-1 drug resistance in resource-limited settings where combination antiretroviral treatment has been scaled up could compromise the effectiveness of national HIV treatment programmes. We aimed to estimate changes in the prevalence of HIV-1 drug resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV since initiation of rollout in resource-limited settings.
