Serial quantitation of BCR-ABL mRNA levels is an important indicator of therapeutic response for patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia, but there is substantial variation in the real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction methodologies used by different testing laboratories. To help improve the comparability of results between centers we sought to develop accredited reference reagents that are directly linked to the BCR-ABL international scale. After assessment of candidate cell lines, a reference material panel comprising 4 different dilution levels of freeze-dried preparations of K562 cells diluted in HL60 cells was prepared. After performance evaluation, the materials were assigned fixed percent BCR-ABL/control gene values according to the International Scale. A recommendation that the 4 materials be established as the first World Health Organization International Genetic Reference Panel for quantitation of BCR-ABL ...
During 2005-2006, nine measles virus (MV) genotypes were identified throughout the World Health Organization European Region. All major epidemics were associated with genotypes D4, D6, and B3. Other genotypes (B2, D5, D8, D9, G2, and H1) were only found in limited numbers of cases after importation from other continents. The genetic diversity of endemic D6 strains was low; genotypes C2 and D7, circulating in Europe until recent years, were no longer identified. The transmission chains of several indigenous MV strains may thus have been interrupted by enhanced vaccination. However, multiple importations from Africa and Asia and virus introduction into highly mobile and unvaccinated communities caused a massive spread of D4 and B3 strains throughout much of the region. Thus, despite the reduction of endemic MV circulation, importation of MV from other continents caused prolonged circulation and large outbreaks after their introduction into unvaccinated and highly mobile communities ...
The guidelines also recommend that anyone on a failing first-line regimen that does not contain dolutegravir should switch to a second-line regimen of dolutegravir plus a new NRTI backbone.. The new recommendations stress the importance of switching to dolutegravir in settings where resistance to non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) is rising. Dr Silvia Bertagnolio told a symposium organised by WHO that resistance to NNRTIs is present in over 15% of people starting antiretroviral treatment in Uganda, 20% in South Africa and over 25% in Honduras. Use of efavirenz in these settings is likely to result in treatment failure and further transmission of drug-resistant virus.. Implementing the recommendations is an urgent priority for countries as they work towards achieving the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets - 90% of people living with HIV knowing their status, 90% of those diagnosed being on antiretroviral therapy and 90% of those on treatment having viral suppression by 2020. ...
Financial and fiduciary management. The audit identified unsupported expenditures amounting to $9.6 million. In addition, the audit revealed significant delays in the procurement of non-health commodities. Further, the audit identified lapses in fiduciary controls over procurement, the management of advances, and contract management.. Programmatic and performance management. The OIG said that the increase in the number of HIV patients on treatment will result in a treatment funding gap of at least $232 million by 2017. That number rises to $328 million if treatment is initiated when the CD4 count falls below 500 (which is the current World Health Organization recommendation). If the funding gap is not filled, the OIG said, this will result in commodity shortages and treatment disruptions by as early as mid-2016.. The OIG said that the government has not met its commitment to purchase antiretroviral medicines in 2014-2015 and that the governments plans to raise additional funding are unlikely to ...
In this study, we assessed a multi-modal intervention to improve implementation of WHO guidelines for vital sign collection and diagnosis of severe illness among hospitalized adolescents and adults in western Uganda. Our results suggest that severe illness is under-recognized and associated with substantial mortality in public and private community hospitals in a rural district of Uganda. After introducing the SIMS platform, we observed significant improvements in vital sign collection and diagnosis of key severe illness conditions, although overall rates of vital sign collection remained sub-optimal. Similar theory-informed, multi-modal implementation studies have been conducted to improve care for severely ill children in low-income settings [8]. However, to our knowledge, this is among the first to evaluate such an approach in severely ill adults and adolescents.. We found that by the end of the intervention period, nearly one in four admitted patients had met triage criteria for one or more ...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today alerted health care professionals to a change in heparin manufacturing that is expected to decrease the potency of the common anti-clotting drug.. To ensure the quality of heparin and to guard against potential contamination, the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), a nonprofit standards-setting organization, adopted new manufacturing controls for heparin. These changes include a modification of the reference standard for the drugs unit dose.. Manufacturers in the United States label the amount of heparin included in their products based on USP standards. The changes adopted by the USP for the heparin unit dose match the World Health Organizations International Standard (IS) unit dose definition that has been in use in Europe for many years. The revised USP reference standard and unit definition for heparin is about 10 percent less potent than the former USP unit.. A unit is the measure of a drugs activity in the body. For heparin, a unit dose is the ...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular risk-prediction models are used in clinical practice to identify and treat high-risk populations, and to communicate risk effectively. We assessed the validity and utility of four cardiovascular risk-prediction models in an Asian population of a middle-income country. METHODS: Data from a national population-based survey of 14,863 participants aged 40 to 65 years, with a follow-up duration of 73,277 person-years was used. The Framingham Risk Score (FRS), SCORE (Systematic COronary Risk Evaluation)-high and -low cardiovascular-risk regions and the World Health Organization/International Society of Hypertension (WHO/ISH) models were assessed. The outcome of interest was 5-year cardiovascular mortality. Discrimination was assessed for all models and calibration for the SCORE models. RESULTS: Cardiovascular risk factors were highly prevalent; smoking 20%, obesity 32%, hypertension 55%, diabetes mellitus 18% and hypercholesterolemia 34%. The FRS and SCORE models showed good ...
Being overweight can raise the likelihood of being diagnosed with cancers of the stomach and digestive tract, as well as certain brain and reproductive tumors, international researchers said.. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine adds eight more kinds of cancer to the list of those already known to be more likely among overweight people.. In 2002, the World Health Organizations International Agency for Cancer on Research (IARC), based in France, said excess pounds could raise the risk of colon, esophagus, kidney, breast and uterine cancer.. Now, it has added stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, ovary and thyroid cancers, as well as a type of brain tumor known as meningioma and the blood cancer multiple myeloma, the report said.. Researchers reviewed more than 1,000 studies of excess weight and cancer risks, saying that limiting weight gain over decades can help to reduce the risk of those cancers.. "The burden of cancer due to being overweight or obese is more extensive than what ...

The authors reviewed 222 articles, following 92,000 light drinkers and 60,000 non-drinkers, and showed that taking up to one alcoholic drink a day is associated with increased risk for cancer of the mouth and throat, esophagus and breast (Annals of Oncology, Feb 2013; 24(2):301-308). In 2007, the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) found that drinking alcohol is associated with cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, colon, rectum, and female breast.
Resumo: BACKGROUND: The projected rise in the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) could develop into a substantial health problem worldwide. Whether insulin secretagogues (sulphonylureas and meglitinide analogues) are able to prevent or delay T2DM and its associated complications in people at risk for the development of T2DM is unknown. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of insulin secretagogues on the prevention or delay of T2DM and its associated complications in people with impaired glucose tolerance, impaired fasting blood glucose, moderately elevated glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) or any combination of these. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE, PubMed, Embase, ClinicalTrials.gov, the World Health Organization International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, and the reference lists of systematic reviews, articles and health technology assessment reports. We asked investigators of the included trials for information about ...

Basic protocol information on ongoing and completed trials of any intervention type can be retrieved via the World Health Organizations International Clinical Trials Registry Platform Search Portal (www.who.int/trialsearch/). This searches records from national and international trial registries that meet certain standards, including WHO Primary Registries and ClinicalTrials.gov. Users can search the main registry fields using key words related to the study topic, sponsor, recruitment status, and sites. When the same ...
CALIFORNIA, United States, Monday August 22, 2016 - As body weight goes up, so does cancer risk, and the longer a woman is overweight or obese, the more her risk of cancer is likely to increase.. A new study on postmenopausal women reveals that the duration of having a high body mass index (BMI) is linked to a higher risk of developing several types of cancer, from breast to endometrial.. The study, which was published in the journal PLOS Medicine, is the first to explore the relationship between overweight duration and cancer risk in a large cohort of women, according to Melina Arnold, a scientist at the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and lead author of the study.. "Given the result from previous studies supporting the overall link between obesity and cancer, our results are in line with what we know about this relationship," Arnold said. "Yet it adds to current scientific evidence by suggesting that there seems to be a cumulative effect of ...
Blood pressure is defined by two values: systolic (contraction of the heart), the highest value, and diastolic (dilation of the heart), the lower. The Sixth Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (JNC-VI) and the World Health Organization/International Society of Hypertension Guidelines subcommittees have agreed that both systolic and diastolic blood pressure should be used to classify hypertension. Systolo-diastolic hypertension is diagnosed when systolic and diastolic blood pressure are over 160 and 90, respectively. Isolated systolic hypertension refers to systolic blood pressure over 160 and diastolic blood pressure under 90.. Misdiagnosis may be more frequent in the elderly due to various factors, including inappropriate length of the cuff due to obesity or very low weight, fluctuations in blood pressure due to postural hypotension, and/or anxiety (white coat effect). The difficulty of measuring blood pressure in ...
Glyphosate, an herbicide and the active ingredient in Monsanto Cos popular Roundup weed killer, will be added to Californias list of chemicals known to cause cancer effective July 7, the states Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) said on Monday.. Monsanto vowed to continue its legal fight against the designation, required under a state law known as Proposition 65, and called the decision "unwarranted on the basis of science and the law.". The listing is the latest legal setback for the seeds and chemicals company, which has faced increasing litigation over glyphosate since the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer said that it is "probably carcinogenic" in a controversial ruling in 2015.. Dicamba, a weed killer designed for use with Monsantos next generation of biotech crops, is under scrutiny in Arkansas after the states plant board voted last week to ban the chemical.. OEHHA said the designation of glyphosate under Proposition 65 will ...
Until today, the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) had said that there were no adverse health effects from the use
Even the Government Accountability Office (GAO) bluntly stated the FDA isnt testing nearly enough in size and scope to matter, and that glyphosates werent even tested in 2014. The agency reported, "FDA tested less than one-tenth of 1% of imported shipments.". The GAO also chided the FDA for not disclosing that it does not "test for several commonly used pesticides with an EPA established tolerance (the maximum amount of a pesticide residue that is allowed to remain on or in a food)-including glyphosate, the most used agricultural pesticide.". The GAOs criticism makes it clear that the dangers of pesticides and herbicides arent taken seriously by federal agencies. This is not because of omission or negligence.. The FDA only started testing for glyphosates in February 2016, after being criticized for not doing so-following the release of a damning report on glyphosate dangers by the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which re-classified glyphosate ...
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), characterised by a severe dysfunction of the heart muscle, often results from a myocarditis, which could be caused by a variety of organisms or mediated by autoimmune responses to the exposure of cardiac specific antigen, such as myosin, after cardiomyocyte damage. DCM of humans can be experimentally reproduced in susceptible mouse strains by immunisation with purified cardiac myosin.1 Moreover, chlamydia infection may mediate heart disease through an antigenic mimicry between the chlamydia outer membrane protein and muscle specific α myosin of the heart.2 The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection by measuring the serum IgG and IgA antibodies against C pneumoniae in patients with DCM.. Twenty six consecutive patients with DCM, aged 56.9 (15.5) years, diagnosed according to the World Health Organization/International Society and Federation of Cardiology criteria,3 were enrolled. Twenty eight healthy subjects, mean (SD) ...

Infant formula marketing decision welcomed. The Infant Nutrition Council (INC) welcomes the Commerce Commission confirmation of the authorisation of the INCs Code of Practice for marketing infant formula.. The Code of Practice restricts the advertising and marketing of infant formula by members.. It has been in place since 2012 and is consistent with New Zealands commitment to the World Health Organisations International Code of Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes (WHO Code).. INC Chief Executive Jan Carey says INC applied to the commission for authorisation of the Code to reassure its members that it was the appropriate response in New Zealand to the WHO Code and that they comply with the law.. "Commerce Commission Chair Dr Mark Berry said After considering the feedback from a number of interested parties, the commission has reached the view that the public benefits arising from higher breastfeeding rates outweigh any lessening of competition from the arrangement", and INC agrees totally ...
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has announced that it will proceed with international harmonisation of drug names used in Australia from April 2016. For the past decade or so, since the United Kingdom moved to the World Health Organizations International Nonproprietary Names (INNs), weve been in the anomalous situation of using former British Approved Names despite these no longer being used in the UK (nor listed in the British Pharmacopoeia). The TGA website has a list of affected drugs.. Some changes are trivial:. ...
Why would anyone ever consider that statin-type cholesterol-lowering drugs could be linked to ALS?

By Kristen Rapoza, Harvard Health Letters. Like many women, you may have memorized the minimum daily calcium requirement - 1,000 milligrams (mg) a day for women ages 50 and younger and 1,200 mg for women over 50 - and followed it faithfully in an effort to preserve your bones. Youll probably be surprised to learn that many health authorities dont agree with that recommendation. Dr. Walter Willett, chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, thinks youre likely to do just as well on half as much calcium.. "Essentially, I think that adults do not need 1,200 mg of calcium a day," he said. "The World Health Organizations recommendation of 500 mg is probably about right. The United Kingdom sets the goal at 700 mg, which is fine, too. It allows for a little leeway.". Why the 1,200 mg recommendation?. Adequate calcium is necessary for good health, and not just because its a major component of our bones. It also plays a vital role in keeping our organs and ...
There are many negative effects of the medicalization of birth, but lets keep it simple. Childbirth is more medicalized now than ever, with more interventions, more drugs, and more surgeries. Our Caesarean section rate is up to around 30 percent, despite World Health Organization recommendations of 15 percent. Are women and babies healthier? Safer? Happier? The answer is no. The United States continues to rank near the bottom of developed countries in relation to infant mortality, coming in second to last in 2006. Experts disagree on why. Some cite sub par health care for low-income pregnant women, while others point to increasingly complicated neonatal surgical interventions for otherwise unviable pregnancies. The simple fact is that Americans have one of the most costly health care systems in the world, but in many respects our health outcomes are nothing to brag about among our developed-world peers. Beyond all of this, what the birthing rights movement addresses is the narrowing scope of ...
Hepatitis E (genotype 1 and, to a lesser extent genotype 2) is endemic and can cause outbreaks in Southeast Asia, northern and central Africa, India, and Central America.[5][45] It is spread mainly by the fecal-oral route due to contamination of water supplies or food; direct person-to-person transmission is uncommon.[5][19] In contrast to genotypes 1 and 2, genotypes 3 and 4 cause sporadic cases thought to be contracted zoonotically, from direct contact with animals or indirectly from contaminated water or undercooked meat.[5][46] Outbreaks of epidemic hepatitis E most commonly occur after heavy rainfalls, especially monsoons because of their disruption of water supplies; heavy flooding can causes sewage to contaminate water supplies.[47][48]:78 The World Health Organization recommendation for chlorine on HEV inactivation, a free chlorine residual of 0.5 mg/L (6.7×10−5 oz/US gal) for 30 min (pH, ,8.0)[49] Major outbreaks have occurred in New Delhi, India (30,000 cases in 1955-1956),[50] ...

Low-level HIV viral load, above the limit of detection, is an important warning signal for future treatment failure and World Health Organization guidelines on spotting treatment failure need to be revised to encourage greater vigilance and swifter action by healthcare providers in lower- and middle-income settings, investigators report in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.. The study, carried out by Annemarie Wensing and colleagues at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and University of Witwatersrand in South Africa, looked at the relationship between having a detectable viral load below 1000 copies/ml after at least six months on antiretroviral treatment and the subsequent risk of treatment failure - a virological rebound above 1000 copies/ml that should lead to a switch in treatment. In its 2016 antiretroviral treatment guidelines for lower- and middle-income settings, the World Health Organization (WHO) did not recommend any action should be taken in cases where a person has a ...
Faculty: Christopher Przybycin, MD and Jordan Reynolds, MD, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH and Ming Zhou MD, PhD, New York University, New York, NY Diagnosis and classification of renal tumors have undergone tremendous changes in the last decade. Many new entities have been discovered. The molecular mechanisms of many tumors have been unraveled and consequently many new biomarkers and molecular tests have been increasingly used in the diagnosis and prognotification of renal tumors. Targeted therapy is available for many specific subtypes of renal tumors. All these changes will be included in the new World Health Organization Classification of Renal Neoplasia, which will be published in early 2016. It is imperative for practicing pathologists to keep abreast with the "new" tumor entities, diagnostic criteria, diagnostic markers and tests, and recent changes to the grading and staging criteria for renal cell carcinomas. Rather than a rote list of tumors with characteristics, this practically ...

After all, this will be the maximum measures that member states can impose. We should be more motivated in our determination to tackle the proliferation of this death product.,. "Moving in the direction of fully standardised packaging as recommended by the World Health Organisations guidelines, recommending covering the whole of the pack, is the right one. "The tobacco industrys marketing strategy which is to attract new users of its products, i.e. young impressionable people, must be restricted in the most stringent of terms..

In many areas of the world most severely affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, insect and water-borne diseases such as malaria and diarrheal disease are common causes of illness and death. In addition, diarrhea and malaria are more common and more severe among adults and children infected with HIV. These infections may modulate the immune system, affect the replication of the HIV virus and could result in more rapid HIV disease progression in co-infected individuals. Access to practical, inexpensive and easy to use interventions to prevent these diseases may be effective in delaying HIV progression.. Current Kenya government and World Health Organization guidelines recommend the use of cotrimoxazole (trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole [TMP/SMX]) to prevent co-infections, including malaria. Despite the provision of TMP/SMX to HIV-infected adults, infections with malaria and pathogens causing diarrhea remain common causes of morbidity and mortality in many resource-limited settings. In addition, TMP/SMX ...

N2 - Background: Updated World Health Organization guidelines have amplified debate about how resource constraints should impact monitoring strategies for HIV-infected persons on combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). We estimated the incremental benefit and cost effectiveness of alternative monitoring strategies for east Africans with known HIV infection. Methods. Using a validated HIV computer simulation based on resource-limited data (USAID and AMPATH) and circumstances (east Africa), we compared alternative monitoring strategies for HIV-infected persons newly started on cART. We evaluated clinical, immunologic and ...
As elucidated in the World Health Organization guidelines, pain medications are to be administered in a three-step ladder according to the intensity and pathophysiology of symptoms and individual requirements. For mild pain, the recommended baseline drugs are NSAIDs. Patients with moderate-to-severe pain generally require an opioid agent such as codeine or oxycodone; severe pain requires a stronger opioid such as morphine.. ...
Low-level HIV viral load, above the limit of detection, is an important warning signal for future treatment failure and World Health Organization guidelines on spotting treatment failure need to be revised to encourage greater vigilance and swifter action by healthcare providers in lower- and middle-income settings, investigators report in The Lancet Infectious Diseases. The study ...
A randomized, placebo-controlled, multinational clinical trial was executed. In this trial, 481 patients (nearly all of whom were negative for the human immunodeficiency virus) were assigned different dosages of delamanid. 161 patients were given a dose of 100mg twice daily, 160 patients were given a dose of 200mg twice daily, and 160 patients were given a placebo. This was done for two months in combination with a background drug regimen, developed according to World Health Organization guidelines.. Sputum-cultures were assessed weekly with the use of both liquid broth and solid medium; sputum-culture conversion was defined as a series of five or more consecutive cultures that were negative for growth of mycobacterium tuberculosis.. Among patients who received the background drug regimen plus 100mg of delamanid twice daily, 45.4% had sputum-culture conversion in liquid broth at 2 months, as compared with 29.6% of patients who received a background drug regimen plus the placebo. The group that ...

If these targets are met, then 73% of people in the world living with HIV will be virally suppressed. Modelling suggests that that if these targets are met, then by 2030 the world will be able to end the AIDS epidemic. The report discusses how these ambitious targets can be achieved.. Consolidated guidelines on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for key populations. This report brings together all the current World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines relevant to the WHO five key populations: men who have sex with men (MSM), people who inject drugs, people in prisons and other closed settings, sex workers and transgender people. The guidelines lay out the steps necessary for countries to increase access to HIV testing, treatment and care for these five populations. Comprehensive HIV packages for the five key populations are outlined in the guidelines, including measures to better manage sexual and reproductive health, mental health and co-infections such as tuberculosis and hepatitis. ...

The first assessment indicated that improving dietary intake, either energy or micronutrient intakes, to meet the recommended for HIV-infected children (CLHIV) would be able to improve growth of these children. We implemented the nutrition support program through the two strategies aiming to increase dietary intake for all children to meet the current World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations which the recommended energy requirements are increased by10% for asymptomatic CLHIV and increased by 20 to 50% for children who require catch up growth or experiencing opportunistic infections. The nutrition support program composed two strategies. Firstly is providing nutrition education to caregivers and also children. Secondly, revision food menus by caregivers with assisting from the nutritionists of the project. After this program have been implemented for 6 months, reassessment is needed to evaluate the changes of nutritional status and health outcomes in this children aiming to further ...
A new study from the Harvard Medical School and affiliated Brigham and Womens Hospital concludes that the current World Health Organization (WHO) estimate of childhood cases of tuberculosis are likely half of what actual numbers are. Conventional TB tests, already not easily available enough in many of the regions where TB is a real issue, are designed for diagnosing adults, and subsequently are not as good a predictor when used on children. This means that too many children go undiagnosed in countries with real problems with the respiratory illness.. In the study published today, March 23, in the medical journal The Lancet, it is described how researchers used data previously available to the public to implement a novel method correcting for the current under-diagnosis in children, thought to be mainly caused by the lack of testing designed for the younger population. They then came up with two models: one to estimate regional numbers and one to estimate global numbers. What they found is that ...
London [PAA] Some 12.6 million people across the globe die every year due to unhealthy environments, according to a new World Health Organisation (WHO) report.. Almost one in four of all deaths are due to living or working in unhealthy conditions, accounting for at least 1.4 million deaths every year in Europe, the studys authors estimated.. The WHO said environmental risk factors, such as air, water and soil pollution, chemical exposure, climate change and too much sun contributed to more than 100 diseases and injuries.. And it said working environments - such as a poor ability to maintain a work/life balance, stress and sitting for too long - contributed to poorer mental health and skeletal problems such as back pain.. The report - Preventing Disease Through Healthy Environments: A Global Assessment Of The Burden Of Disease From Environmental Risks - said deaths due to air pollution (including exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke), are responsible for as many as 8.2 million of the global ...

Tips from this months issue. Small breaches could become a big problem (p. 1) 1.Regional offices were advised to increase investigations of breaches affecting fewer than 500 individuals. Investigators will look for evidence of systemic noncompliance, such as multiple small breaches and common root causes.. 2.Implementing OCRs directive may be a tall order for resource-strapped regional offices, and its difficult to predict what the outcome will be.. 3.Because small breaches werent investigated on the same scale as large breaches, OCR has much less data on them. Stepping up small breach investigations will mitigate that and may lead to improved guidance on key HIPAA pain points.. 4.Although large breaches grab attention, theyre statistically less likely than small breaches.. 5.But even a breach involving a single patients records can have serious consequences for the individual and even impact his or her safety if the medical record becomes compromised as a result.. 6.Large health systems ...
