Intestinal ischemia is the condition of a diminished blood flow to the small intestine or colon. Intestinal ischemia can result in pain and make it difficult for the intestines to function. Loss of blood flow to the intestines in severe cases can lead to damaged or dead intestinal tissue, not unlike what happens to the heart ... more

Bartholin cyst

Bartholin cyst

Located on each side of the vaginal opening are the Bartholin’s glands, which secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina. In some cases, fluid backs up into the gland due to the obstruction of the openings of these glands, which causes a relatively painless swelling called a Bartholin cyst. In other cases, when the fluid is infected, a small area of puss is created, surrounded by inflamed tissue (abscess). Depending on the pain, ... more

Journal's Abstract

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.
