Peter Hotez and Serap Aksoy, co-Editors in Chief of PLOS Neglected Tropical Diaseases, contemplate the recent rises in various vector-borne NTDs around the world. In 2013 both chikungunya and Zika virus infection are believed to have first emerged in the Western Hemisphere where both viruses now affect much of the population of Latin America and the Caribbean region and also threaten the United States. Chikungunya made its first appearance on the Caribbean island nation of Saint Martin at the end of 2013 and has since spread throughout much of the Americas, including the first locally acquired case in Texas reported this year. Similarly, molecular clock studies indicate that Zika probably first entered the Americas between May and December of 2013 before also spreading throughout Latin America and the Caribbean region, and there are fears that transmission of Zika might start by later this summer in the continental US.. While the rapid dissemination of these arbovirus infections in the Western ...
The rate at which the Caribbean corals have been declining is truly alarming…They are a major oceanic ecosystem, this is a tragedy that must be reversed," says Carl Gustaf Lundin, Director of IUCNs Global Marine and Polar Programme. But the study, Status and Trends of Caribbean Coral Reefs: 1970-2012, "brings some very encouraging news: the fate of Caribbean corals is not beyond our control and there are some very concrete steps that we can take to help them recover ...
This is an advance summary of a forthcoming article in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Latin American History. Please check back later for the full article.Yellow fever was one of the most dreaded diseases in the Caribbean region from its first appearance in the 1650s until the confirmation of its spread via the bites of infected mosquitos in 1900. Fear of the disease resulted from not just its high mortality rate, but also the horrifying manner in which it killed its victims: after several days of fever, chills, and body aches, the skin and eyes of those who were most seriously infected would turn yellow as their livers failed, they would bleed from the eyes and nose, and they would succumb to the vomiting of coagulated blood. Because the virus caused only mild symptoms in children and a single episode confers lifetime immunity, the disease did not heavily impact natives of the region. Instead, it was newcomers in the Caribbean who suffered the worst ravages.
The neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) represent some of the most common infections of the poorest people living in the Latin American and Caribbean region (LAC). Because they primarily afflict the disenfranchised poor as well as selected indigenous populations and people of African descent, the NTDs in LAC are largely forgotten diseases even though their collective disease burden may exceed better known conditions such as of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, or malaria. Based on their prevalence and healthy life years lost from disability, hookworm infection, other soil-transmitted helminth infections, and Chagas disease are the most important NTDs in LAC, followed by dengue, schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, trachoma, leprosy, and lymphatic filariasis. On the other hand, for some important NTDs, such as leptospirosis and cysticercosis, complete disease burden estimates are not available. The NTDs in LAC geographically concentrate in 11 different sub-regions, each with a distinctive human and environmental ecology
The latest reports explaining how five women have died from bacterial infections after taking the RU-486 abortion pill is further evidence of the abortion industrys pursuit of a reckless path of destruction that leaves millions of victims dead in its wake," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. "How many more women and preborn children must die before this lethal drug is taken off of the market?". American Life League has been a steadfast opponent of RU-486 and has repeatedly demanded its recall. After the much publicized death of Holly Patterson, the 18-year old California girl who died after taking the RU-486 pill she obtained from a Planned Parenthood clinic, American Life League led the charge in opposing the drug.. "This drug has no beneficial qualities," said Brown. "Its one and only purpose is to end the life of a preborn child. As we are seeing more and more, this deadly concoction not only kills the baby, but can kill the mother as well. The abortion industry seems to ...

Impact of specimen source on detection of ZIKV RNA.The specimen types most frequently cited for ZIKV RNA detection have been plasma or serum, with viral titers of 5.0 × 100 to 3.7 × 106 copies/ml (mean of 9.9 × 104 copies/ml) being determined with the CDC Trioplex ZIKV rRT-PCR for serum samples collected within the first 7 days PSO (59). A 2016 longitudinal study of travelers returning from the Caribbean region or Central or South America showed prolonged detection of ZIKV in WB samples, compared to plasma or serum samples, with median durations of ZIKV viremia of 22 days versus 10 days. Comparison of the last ZIKV-rRT-PCR-positive samples for those patients showed that viral loads were 2.7 to 3.9 log copies/ml in WB and 2.2 to 2.8 log copies/ml in plasma, suggesting that WB may be a more sensitive ZIKV source than other blood fractions (60). While WB appears to be the optimal specimen type for ZIKV rRT-PCR, challenges associated with its long-term storage and extraction have limited the ...
The U.S. Department of State, in coordination with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), submitted a multi-year Caribbean strategy to Congress on June 19 that establishes a framework for enhancing the security and prosperity of the United States and its Caribbean partners. Considered the "third border" of the United States, the Caribbean is a vital part of our efforts to counter organized crime and illicit trafficking, support democracy throughout the Western hemisphere, strengthen energy security, and create jobs through increased trade and investment. A secure and stable Caribbean contributes to a safer and more prosperous United States by securing the U.S. border, protecting U.S. citizens abroad, and increasing opportunities for U.S. exports. The United States will continue to work with the Caribbean region to support commitments in the multi-year strategy; encourage private sector-led growth and job creation; reduce energy costs through diversification, regulatory reform, ...

The novel bromotriterpene polyethers aplysqualenol A (1) and B (2) have been isolated from the Caribbean sea slug Aplysia dactylomela, collected in Puerto Rico, and their structures and relative configurational assignments established from spectroscopic data aided by quantum mechanical calculations of NMR chemical shifts. Although both these compounds may be conceived as polyoxacyclic derivatives of the C30 squalene skeleton, it is notable that 1 and 2 each possess an unprecedented C15-to-C24 flexible chain of (14S*) spatial disposition that contains a unique ether bridge between C16 and C19. Biological activity screening tests revealed that, although aplysqualenol A (1) does not have significant antiinfective properties, it possesses potent antitumoral and antiviral activities.

The problem racially with Hispanics is that they arent a race. One of the interesting factoids about Vicente Fox was that he was the first Hispanic looking President of Mexico is quite some time. The rest of them could just as easily come straight off the streets of Madrid. Ditto for most of their TV stars. Most of the Hispanics I see on a daily basis have a large percentage of (American) Indian blood - which is to say Oriental by race. Mostly you can tell them apart from our native Indians, who are most typically Navajo and related tribes, coming out of a much later migration. As I understand it, it is more a class thing - the ruling aristocracy is still fairly European throughput much of Latin America, and has been for 500 years now. And those on the bottom are almost entirely American Indian, with everyone else somewhere between. But then, different places of origin have different racial and ethnic histories, with a fair amount of Black blood in some of the Caribbean countries. Etc. By ...
But there also appear to be both genetic and environmental influences. The African diaspora offers insight revealing a progression of obesity rates and cardiovascular risk as migration progressed. Women of African ancestry living in rural Africa have relatively low rates of obesity and CV risk. Populations of women of African ancestry living in African urban areas have higher rates of obesity and CV risk. Women with essentially the same genetic background living further west in Caribbean countries have even higher rates. And women of African ancestry living in the United States have much higher rates of obesity and CV risk.8 Obesity rates among these African-American women, especially in the south, have risen dramatically in the last few years.. These data suggest a potential underlying racial/gender difference in a tendency to obesity that is only expressed in an environment that fosters lower physical activity and a higher intake of calorie-dense foods. The environmental influences likely ...

By Olaf StorbeckLONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - Sundays election will turn Germany into Jamaica. A coalition resembling the colours of the Caribbean countrys flag - black for Chancellor Angela Merkels conservatives, yellow for the pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP), plus the Greens - is the only viable option for a majority in the German parliament. Europes largest economy is facing a period of weak and unstable government.Though Merkel will return for a fourth term, her Christian Democratic Union and its current coalition partner, the Social Democrats (SPD), suffered their worst electoral result in postwar history. The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) more than doubled its share of the vote compared with 2013 and is now the countrys third-largest party. The SPD will lick its wounds in opposition. So Merkel will need to team up with smaller parties.The FDPs return to parliament means that a group with semi-eurosceptic views is likely to be a core pillar of the next government. Party
We now turn from a more abstract discussion of legal and faith-based principles to practical application of criteria for capacity to marry.. If an assessment were requested, the clinician could rely on criteria articulated in the literature, with appropriate, culturally competent interpretation for the Caribbean. To develop a framework for culturally based assessment, a clinical example may be useful. Relevant case studies in the English-speaking Caribbean are scant. However, for this discussion, we derive an example compiled from our collective clinical experience in the Caribbean context.. A clinician was called to consult about a patient after a suicide attempt by ingestion of Gramoxone (an organophosphate used as herbicide). Gramoxone ingestion is one of the most common means of attempted and completed suicide in some Caribbean countries10 and, unfortunately, it is extremely lethal.11 The patient was in acute distress and vomiting profusely; there was objective evidence of autonomic ...

Known as "The Great Killer" and "The White Plague," few diseases influenced American life as much as tuberculosis. Sufferers migrated to mountain or desert climates believed to ameliorate symptoms. Architects designed homes with sleeping porches and verandas so sufferers could spend time in the open air. The disease even developed its own consumer culture complete with invalid beds, spittoons, sputum collection devices, and disinfectants. The "preventorium," an institution designed to protect children from the ravages of the disease, emerged in this era of Progressive ideals in public health. ...

Since August 23rd of this year I have interacted daily with our American Health Care system and often done so to the exclusion of virtually all other business. It is not undercover reporting, and it is not an expert study of the field, but since that day, when my father slid, seemingly benignly, out of his bed and onto the floor of his home, I have experienced with growing amazement and with multiplying anger, the true state of our hospitals, our doctors offices, our insurance businesses, our pharmacies.. My fathers story as a patient and mine as a secondary participant and a primary witness has been eye-opening and jaw-dropping. And we are among the utterly lucky ones, a fact that, by itself, is terrifying and infuriating.. And thus tonight, for all those who we have met along the way, those with whom we have shared the last two months inside the belly of the beast, and for everyone in this country who will be here and right soon tonight, Countdown will be devoted entirely to a Special ...

The scope and content of the 1978 study is basically the same as in 1971. Respondents were asked questions about housing, city and neighborhood, nation, friends, family and marriage, education, health, employment, leisure activities, and financial status. In addition to broad questions about satisfaction with each of these areas, there are also questions about life (in general) ...
There is no longer any doubt about the business Planned Parenthood has engaged in with StemExpress and possibly others in using baby body parts for clinical research and experimentation. The published quotations that the Center for Medical Progress has posted, excerpted from the latest video featuring StemExpress employees discussing the brain tissue of preborn babies, ought to give any right-thinking person the chills. But then again, it is obvious that the folks involved in the sale and acquisition of baby body parts are not right-thinking. Otherwise such transactions would not exist.. Lets look at an example.. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has argued that those who produced the video series attempted to "entrap doctors," and says their efforts have not succeeded. In fact, she tells us: "Women in a very few places are allowed to donate fetal tissue for lifesaving medical research, research that is developing cures for Parkinsons and for Alzheimers, ...
