– ‘On the map: Ensuring Africa’s place in Rectal Microbicide Research and Advocacy ‘the result of an intensive two-day consultations with more than 40 African and allies, which took place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in early December 2011 is carried out. It calls for a series of activities related to research and community mobilization fully engage fully engage Africans, including a knowledge, attitudes and behavior study on anal sex, advocacy for increased condom compatible lubricant access, communication and educational activities.. ‘Our diverse sexualities in Africa should defined not be only by avoiding tools that we have available HIV prevention tools to make our sexuality needs to be adjusted.

Source: Gentium S.Microscopic wonder – Nanomedicine is already bringing clinical benefits for thousands’Nanotechnology’is a newly fashionable area, but in the world of drug development, it is certainly not new, Professor Ruth Duncan of the Welsh School of Pharmacy, has at Cardiff University , the British said Pharmaceutical Conference .
The first nanomedicine already bringing clinical benefits for thousands of patients, said Professor Duncan in her Conference Science Chair’s Address. ‘Progress in the development of nano-sized hybrid therapeutics and nano-sized drug delivery systems over the last decade has been remarkable An increasing number of products already secured regulatory approval and are in turn a healthy a healthy clinical development pipeline, including products ,, to treat hepatitis and arthritis.

‘now that we know that there is an important interaction between a protein on the parasite surface and sugars on the human cell that lead to the cell invasion is there are. Potential therapeutic agents that are designed to disrupt thus therefore frustrate develop infection ‘.
Currently, a wide range of highly complex terms conditions in the spectrum of Soweto heart disease. These include infectious diseases in general in the African populations, such as rheumatic heart valve disease, cardiomyopathies expected connected pericardial tuberculosis and diseases exacerbated by HIV incidence. However, also included are newer non-communicable diseases associated with advanced clinical presentation in in high-income countries in particular,hypertensive heart disease and coronary heart disease are reported are linked.. This study, the authors say , have important effects on measures for the prevention and treat heart disease, not just in Soweto, but also for other urban communities in Africa, which are currently experiencing similar epidemiological changes in their disease profiles.

represent rainfed areas 80 % of the world’s arable land, said Dr. Theib Oweis, a researcher with ICARDA When drylands are within countries to ensure food security in the face. It is particularly urgent that they unlock the potential of rainfed agriculture through efficient practices such additional irrigation and rainwater harvesting. .

In addition to the studies with liver cells in lab dishes, they also demonstrated the relationship between lipid peroxidation and reduced production of bad lipoproteins in living mice. Fisher plans to conduct further experiments in mice experiments confirm these results. Direct experiments in humans the inner workings the inner workings the liver is difficult, says Dr. ‘but there is already observational studies in normal humans have shown that a diet high in polyunsaturated fatty acids enriched blood levels of lipid peroxides increased and decreased levels of VLDL and LDL. For example,ntioxidants, there are positive effects on other parts of the body, says Dr. The molecules, for example, in some animal experiments proved the arteries from atherosclerosis and the pancreas and other organs from damage ‘ by diabetes.

But there is some good news. The negative effects in the bones are all from a specific transcription factor, such as AP-1 is known to shows their testimony. Tucker husband says it may now be possible to to fine-tune glucocorticoid drugs, so they do not lead to this AP-1 interaction.
Further experiments by Wan and colleagues show some of the other players. They find that the side effects of rosiglitazone on bone transcriptional coactivator PGC1b PGC1b that coordinates with another molecular actor known as ERRA involved. Strikingly, they report, animals PCG1b missing in their osteoclasts grow completely resistant to rosiglitazone – induced bone loss. Continue reading
