    Thu, 19 Sep 2019
    The intensity of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) transmission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo increased slightly from last week, with 57 new confirmed cases reported in North Kivu and Ituri provinces from 11-17 September 2019, versus 40 in the previous week.

    Mon, 16 Sep 2019
    On 16 August 2019, Regional Health Authorities in Andalusia, Spain, reported an outbreak of listeriosis, caused by the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes), associated with the consumption of a chilled roasted pork meat product manufactured in Spain by Magrudis Company Limited and sold under the brand name “La Mechá”.

    Thu, 12 Sep 2019
    Ebola virus disease (EVD) transmission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo continued to ease this past week, with 40 new confirmed cases reported in North Kivu and Ituri provinces; this is the lowest weekly incidence since March 2019. While these signs are promising, it remains too soon to tell if this trend will persist. Emerging hotspots continue to pose challenges in terms of accessibility, insecurity, and violence. Surveillance indicators highlight that public health risks of further spread remain very high.

    During the past 21 days (from 21 August through 10 September 2019), a total of 157 confirmed cases were reported form 15 health zones (Table 1, Figure 2), with the majority coming from the health zones of Kalunguta (19%, n=30), Beni (18%, n=28), Mambasa (16%, n=25), and Mandima (13%, n=20). Alimbongo, Oicha, and Pinga health zones recently passed 21 days without a new confirmed case of EVD.

    Thu, 28 Dec 2017
    In a study of medical records gathered on hundreds of thousands of African-American women, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have evidence that women with a common form of hair loss have an increased chance of developing uterine leiomyomas, or fibroids.
  • More Tumor Mutations Equals Higher Success Rate With Cancer Immun...
    Wed, 20 Dec 2017

    The “mutational burden,” or the number of mutations present in a tumor’s DNA, is a good predictor of whether that cancer type will respond to a class of cancer immunotherapy drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors, a new study led by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers shows. The finding, published in the Dec. 21 New England Journal of Medicine, could be used to guide future clinical trials for these drugs.

    Mon, 18 Dec 2017
    In a study using genetically engineered mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have uncovered some new molecular details that appear to explain how electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) rapidly relieves severe depression in mammals, presumably including people. The molecular changes allow more communication between neurons in a specific part of the brain also known to respond to antidepressant drugs.

    2019-09-17
    Urinary catheterization is an essential component of many surgical procedures but increases the risk of urinary tract infection (UTI). In the United States, as many as 79% of patients in adult critical care units have indwelling catheters1; overall, 23.6% of hospital patients are catheterized.2 Decreasing catheter duration significantly lowers UTI risk,3 but the risk is still substantial: as high as 38% in the 6 weeks following catheter removal among women undergoing short-term catheterization for elective gynecological surgery.

    2019-09-17
    Throughout the 20th century, the incidence of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (MDRAB) bloodstream infections (BSIs) increased.1 MDRAB BSI can develop secondary to infections at other sites, and can be fatal.2,3 As the risk of MDRAB BSI is higher in bacterially colonized patients,3,4 identification of risk factors is important for preventing MDRAB BSI. In this study, we investigated risk factors for BSI among patients colonized with MDRAB.

    2019-09-11
    Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a major global public health concern due to its high morbidity and mortality.1 Approximately 240 million people are reported to have chronic HBV infection, an infection that exhibits high endemicity in Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.2 The World Health Organization Global Health Estimates for the year 2016 showed that the years lost due to disability that could be attributed to acute HBV infection exceeded 165,000, with approximately 111,000 deaths; furthermore, the consequent liver cirrhosis and liver cancer resulted in 394,000 and 98,000 years lost due to disability and 486,000 and 382,000 deaths, respectively.
