Study reveals how herpes virus tricks the immune system
3 Feb 2016 at 3:17pm

Scientists have captured atomic images of the virus that causes cold sores in action.

The Real Reason You Get Sick After A Stressful Period Has Ended
24 Jan 2016 at 9:06am

Have you ever wondered how you manage to get through a particularly stressful period – whether it's an intense deadline at work, final exams in school or a spate of holiday houseguests – only to get sick after the stress has lifted? It's not a fluke. It's a phenomenon that's often referred to as "the let-down effect," a pattern in which people come down with an illness or develop flare-ups of a chronic condition not during a concentrated period of stress but after it dissipates, explains psychologist Marc Schoen, an assistant clinical professor of medicine at the University of California–Los Angeles and the author of "When Relaxation Is Hazardous to Your Health." Research has linked the let-down of perceived stress with an increase ...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK. Find the best Christmas presents too.

We May Resurrect The Mammoth Sooner Than You Think
18 Dec 2015 at 4:15am

Of all the varied and incredible possibilities presented by the controversial new gene-editing technique known as CRISPR-Cas9, perhaps the most intriguing are efforts to bring animals back from extinction. Candidates for de-extinction, as the process is known, include species like the passenger pigeon (the last one died in captivity in 1914), the dodo (last seen in 1662) and the sea cow (1768, a mere 27 years after it had been discovered by Europeans.) These projects are not pipe dreams.  Dr. George Church, a molecular biologist at Harvard University who is working on such projects, estimates that a variation of the first new woolly mammoth (which disappeared some 4,000 years ago) may be born as soon as seven years from now. Like other proponents of de-extinction, he hopes the an...

Do statins interfere with the flu vaccine?
30 Nov 2015 at 8:00am

Statins are powerful, unusual, and, like El Niño and Tom Cruise, not well understood. Statins have a huge upside. They improve survival after heart attacks and lower the risk of recurrent strokes. They are also the only cholesterol-lowering medications that have been clearly shown to reduce heart attacks and deaths in high-risk patients without heart disease. In addition to reducing cholesterol, statins also lower levels of inflammation in the body. Reducing inflammation probably helps statins to prevent heart attack and stroke. However, evidence is emerging that these statin effects may also have a downside, hindering the ability of the immune system to fight infections. Teasing out the relationship between statins and immune response Two recent studies examined the relationship between ...

One of the best things about America is that we can all say exactly what we choose. And one of the worst things about America is, well, that we can all say exactly what we choose. That especially true when grossly misinformed people with very large megaphones take advantage of that liberty. Which brings us to Jenny McCarthy.

Everything You Think You Know About Herpes Is Wrong
16 Nov 2015 at 4:55pm

By Kristine Thomason Hate to break it to you, but you probably have herpes. Turns out, nearly two-thirds of the global population is infected with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), according to a recent report released by the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO researchers estimated that 3.7 billion people under the age of 50 are infected with HSV-1, which is best known as a cause of cold sores. Another 417 million people worldwide aged 15-49 have HSV-2, the type most often thought of as a sexually transmitted disease. But get this-140 million adults have genital infections caused by HSV-1, meaning half a billion people could sexually transmit either virus. While this news may be shocking--don't freak out. Herpes has been seriously stigmatized for years, but the fact is, if you don...

What Does a Post-HIV Gay Culture Look Like?
26 Aug 2015 at 3:09pm

I have recently been confronting my personal issues with Truvada and in the process learning a lot about myself. But it got me wondering, what exactly will sex between men look like after HIV is effectively contained or eradicated? How will it affect gay male culture? And is that the goal of safe sex education and advocating for the use of PrEP? I believe a lot of gay media outlets are being disingenuous in the extreme by pretending as if PrEP and Truvada aren't about barebacking.

Every 20 minutes of every day someone is diagnosed with an HPV related cancer! 6 million HPV infections are diagnosed every year with the vast majority being found in young people.    The vaccine can be given as young as 9 years of age but is recommended between 11 and 12.  Antibodies in the vaccine are more robust in children of that age then those who are 16 years and older.  It is important for kids to get the vaccine before they b...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK.

UCLA researchers create smartphone-based device that reads medical diagnostic tests quickly and accurately
27 Jul 2015 at 12:30pm

Enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay, or ELISA, is a diagnostic tool that identifies antigens such as viruses and bacteria in blood samples. ELISA can detect a number of diseases, including HIV, West Nile virus and hepatitis B, and it is widely used in hospitals. It can also be used to identify potential allergens in food, among other applications. A team of researchers from the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has developed a new mobile phone-based device that can read ELISA plates in the field with the same level of accuracy as the large machines normally found in clinical laboratories. The research, published online in the journal ACS Nano, was led by Aydogan Ozcan, associate director of the California NanoSystems Institute, along with Dino Di Carlo, professor of bioengineering, a...

Why your children should get the HPV vaccine — and why they should get it early
2 Feb 2016 at 7:04am

If there’s something we can do to prevent our children from getting cancer, we should do it. Plain and simple. That’s why the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that youth be vaccinated against Human Papilloma Virus, starting as young as 9 years old. Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV, is the leading cause of cervical cancer. It can cause other cancers as well in both men and women, and is the cause of genital warts. The vaccine, which is given as three doses over 6 months, is very effective. And yet, some parents don’t want me to give the vaccine, especially when their children aren’t teenagers yet. Here’s what seem to be the two biggest reasons: They worry the HPV vaccine is not safe. There are lots of rumors about problems with the HPV vaccine.

HPV vaccines protect against high-risk types of the virus that cause most cervical cancers. The virus is also linked to cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and throat. Despite this, vaccination rates across the US remain low. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 40% of girls and 21% of boys in the US have received all 3 doses of the vaccine.

Who Should Get the HPV Vaccination and Why

By Stacy Simon Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the US according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It’s so common that nearly all sexually active men and women will have it at some point in their lives. In most cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems. But when HPV does not go away, it can cause genital warts and cancer. Almost all cervical cancer is caused by HPV. The virus has also been linked to cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and throat.

We know it's effective. So why is there opposition to the HPV vaccine ?
11 Jan 2016 at 10:44am

Over 90% of cervical cancers are caused by HPV. But squeamishness about sex and unsupported safety fears are threatening vaccination programmes Human papillomavirus (HPV) has long haunted humankind; almost all sexually active adults carry some of HPV’s 170 strains. And although many of these are harmless, amongst the myriad mutants there are those whose effects are anything but benign: subtypes 6 and 11 can lead to genital warts; subtypes 16 and 18 (amongst others) can lead to cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile, anal and oral cancers. This is not some mere hypothetical risk – over 90% of cervical cancers are caused by HPV, a cancer which claimed the lives of 270,000 women in 2012 alone. Luckily, the HPV vaccine Gardasil is extraordinarily effective at preventing infection, being at leas...


What You Need to Know About Testing for Cervical Cancer

By Stacy Simon During the past several decades, screening – testing for cancer before symptoms develop – has reduced deaths from cervical cancer, as doctors have been able to find cancer early and treat it, or prevent it from ever developing. However, those declines have begun to taper off—especially among younger women. From 2007 to 2011, death rates from cervical cancer remained the same among women younger than 50, while decreasing by 1.1% per year among women 50 years of age and older. And many women are missing the opportunity to be screened. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), 8 million women who should be getting screening tests for cervical cancer aren’t getting them.

Why Public Schools Should Require the HPV Vaccine
14 Sep 2015 at 12:54pm

If you live in Rhode Island and your children go to public school, they will need to be vaccinated against the Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV. This is a new requirement—and not everyone likes it. Those who oppose the change point out that you catch HPV through sex, unlike infections like measles or whooping cough that you can catch if someone in the classroom has it and coughs on you. Why, they say, should the HPV vaccine be required for school? Because it could save lives, that’s why. HPV is the leading cause of cervical cancer. It’s also the cause of many other cancers, and genital warts. The vaccine, which can be given as early as 9 years of age, is highly effective against the strains of HPV that cause problems, assuming that youth get all three doses.
