Early diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus infection status in vertically exposed infants in a low resource setting.
Sub-Saharan Africa is the eye of the HIV epidemic. This study was conducted when treatment for the majority of HIV-infected patients in low resource settings was considered unattainable and the risks of diagnosing HIV often outweighed the benefits. Coupled with the complexities of HIV diagnosis in infancy, children typically were only diagnosed once already ill or not at all. Key strategies to address the paediatric epidemic focused on preventing mother to child transmission and reducing mortality and morbidity of infected children predominantly with co-trimoxazole prophylaxis. Both strategies required early diagnosis of HIV infection in infancy for monitoring prevention programs and identifying infected children respectively. The diagnostic algorithm for resource limited settings recommended the use of inexpensive, technically simpler HIV antibody detection assays that are unsuitable for use in HIV-exposed children under 12-months of age. Paradoxically this algorithm provided a barrier to HIV ...http://wiredspace.wits.ac.za/handle/10539/1978?show=full
Study Tour: The Burden of NCDs in Low Resource Settings | MSH & LIVESTRONG Foundation Study Tour 2014
I'm excited to be spending the week with US policy makers and representatives from the LIVESTRONG Foundation and MSH in Uganda and Rwanda. We're here to look at the burden of Non-Communicable Disease and how they are, or are not, taken into account in the national health systems of the two countries. So far, over a very short period of time we've been privileged to meet with many of the top decision-makers and senior management of Uganda's health system and have heard first hand of the challenges and triumphs they've experienced in dealing with NCDs in low resource settings.. The great challenge of combating NCDs in a country like Uganda is that they are just one of many critical priorities within the health sector; not surprisingly most of Uganda's health budget and donor aid for health are channeled into fighting communicable disease and funding child survival and maternal health programming.. There is ...http://studytours.msh.org/mshlf2014/2014/02/27/study-tour-the-burden-of-ncds-in-low-resource-settings/
Improving access to pathology in low resource settings. Improving access to pathology in low resource settings. Oncology videos...
I thought it was a very interesting discussion. I started with an overview of the role of pathology in managing patients in developing countries and why pathology is important. So in order to treat a patient and manage a patient appropriately we need the correct diagnosis and that's where pathology comes to assess whether at first their tumour is benign or malignant, whether it needs to be taken out or not, what type, how aggressive it is, the nodal status and so on, all the prognostic parameters that tell us how to manage the patient and what's the likelihood for this patient to survive. There was an overview as well of the resources in these countries and how little pathology is supported there. The number of pathologists is low and there are four countries, for example, in sub-Saharan Africa with no pathology at all. So this was really eye-opening.. Then we talked about some experiences from the pathologists in the UK helping out pathologists in Africa, particularly in Nigeria and Egypt, ...http://ecancer.org/video/6338/improving-access-to-pathology-in-low-resource-settings.php
Rapid Methods to Assess the Potential Impact of Digital Health Interventions, and their Application to Low Resource Settings |...
Assessing the impact of digital health projects and applications is a key challenge, especially in low resource settings. Full evaluative field studies are resource-intensive and time-consuming. Less demanding approaches that could provide rapid insights would be helpful. This paper presents some "short-cut" approaches for rapid assessments that can provide useful early indications of strengths and weaknesses and can ensure that evaluative efforts are focused on key uncertainties, are not wasted on unpromising interventions, and make the most of what is already known.. ...http://hesp-news.org/2017/07/12/rapid-methods-to-assess-the-potential-impact-of-digital-health-interventions-and-their-application-to-low-resource-settings/

Improving Outcomes in the Treatment of Breast Cancer (Video) - ADC Review ADC Review
Over the last few decades scientists have tried to change - and improve - the way clinical trials are conducted. Their purpose… Improving the process and improving the way novel pharmaceutical drugs are being developed. But it still takes many years and huge investments to successfully bring a new drug to market.. But despite their efforts there is still a huge unmet medical need.. While there are many novel drugs being developed to help improve the outcome and improve survival, resources are limited. Optimal use of resources requires better understanding of cancer biology, the identification of novel therapeutic targets, and the ability to address inefficiencies in the cancer clinical trials system. This may especially be so in how we treat women with metastatic, high risk, breast cancer.. Based on the current limitations in how we conduct clinical trials, scientists of The Biomarkers Consortium, at the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, are ...https://adcreview.com/news/improving-outcomes-treatment-breast-cancer-video/
ESTABLISHMENT AND OPERATION OF CULTURE COLLECTIONS
CULTURE COLLECTIONS. A growing awareness of the importance of biodiversity and the hidden genetic potential has resulted in both an increased recognition of the value of collections of cultures of microorganisms and an increase in the number of such collections. However, not all parent organizations are fully aware of the responsibilities inherent in maintaining a public service to appropriate standards. A culture collection is a long-term commitment, as explained in the guidelines of the World Federation for Culture Collections (WFCC) (Hawksworth et al., 1990): "It is important to consider the level of funding, both now, and likely to be forthcoming on an on-going basis. This must be adequate to provide the range of services being planned, and at a standard users would expect. If secure resources are limited, in general it is preferable to restrict the primary objectives of the collection to those which have a strong probability of maintaining in the long-term. Collections require a clearly ...http://www.cabri.org/guidelines/micro-organisms/M101.html

There are a number of issues where Thorne & cook-kallio voted differently that are telling on how they see things. I'm thinking of Cook-kallio not wanting to allow rebutle agreements on the Oak Grove referendum & then changing her mind once she saw that Thorne was going to support allowing the arguments. How about her yes vote for Measure B1 the perpetual tax where Thorne voted no. Then I'm thinking of the vote on supporting the Castlewood union & the Peace foundation--both items beyond what our city government should be working on especially in these economic times where resources are limited. Then there was the Cunningham house where they voted differently even though she had led the applicant to believe she would support the house. How about wanting to have a discussion about requiring conditional use permits for all retail. (She backed away from that after the Chamber had a conversation with her.)

By Elizabeth Meier. June is AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) awareness month in the United States - a month to create awareness of the virus that has taken the lives of more than 25 million people since 1981. Education and awareness has given way to improved care, and a higher survival rate, however, AIDS remains a critical world health issue and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, states the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). The pulmonary complications of HIV/AIDS are a common issue adding "significantly to patient morbidity and mortality. Imaging plays a vital role in the diagnosis and management of lung of complications associated with HIV. Accurate diagnosis is based on an understanding of the pathogenesis of the processes involved and their imaging findings. Imaging also plays an important role in selection of the most appropriate site for tissue sampling, staging of disease and follow-ups… Almost 70% of the patients suffer at least one respiratory ...http://mriblogs.com/page/2/
