Esophageal Varices

Esophageal Varices

Esophageal varices are the abnormally enlarged veins in the lower part of the esophagus, the tube that connects the throat and stomach. Cirrhosis or other serious liver diseases could cause esophageal varices, along with other complications.   When normal blood flow to the liver is blocked, blood backs up into smaller, more fragile blood vessels in the esophagus and sometimes in the stomach or rectum as well, causing vessels to ... more

Barrett's esophagus

Because of repeated exposure to stomach acid, the color and composition of the cells lining a person’s lower esophagus can change, causing Barrett’s esophagus. In most cases, long-term gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the cause of exposure to stomach acid. GERD is a chronic regurgitation of acid from the stomach into the lower esophagus. Although once Barrett’s esophagus is diagnosed there’s a greater ... more

Stroke

When the blood supply to a part of the brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients, a stroke occurs, and brain cells begin to die within a few minutes.

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

The Lancet, 380/9838 Published: 2012-07-21

Strong evidence shows that physical inactivity increases the risk of many adverse health conditions, including major non-communicable diseases such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers, and shortens life expectancy. Because much of the world's population is inactive, this link presents a major public health issue

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

The Lancet, doi:10.1016 Published: 2012-07-23

The emergence and spread of high levels of HIV-1 drug resistance in resource-limited settings where combination antiretroviral treatment has been scaled up could compromise the effectiveness of national HIV treatment programmes. We aimed to estimate changes in the prevalence of HIV-1 drug resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV since initiation of rollout in resource-limited settings.
