Although in some rare cases anthrax skin lesions may be contagious, usually it isn’t transmitted from one person to another. A person can become infected through a wound in their skin, eating contaminated meat or inhaling the ... more

Acoustic neuroma

Acoustic neuroma

Also called vestibular schwannoma, acoustic neuroma is one of the most common types of brain tumors. This tumor develops adjacent to the brain on a portion of the eighth cranial nerve, which runs from the brain to the inner ear. Luckily, acoustic neuroma is benign (noncancerous) and usually slow growing. Although acoustic neruoma doesn't invade brain tissue like cancer does, but it causes hearing loss, which is one of its symptoms that ... more

Spinal Tumor

Spinal Tumor

A growth, whether cancerous or noncancerous, that develops within or near the spinal cord or within the bones of the spine is called a spinal tumor. Even though back pain is usually due to stress, strain and aging, however, it is also the most common indication of a spinal tumor. Noncancerous tumors usually aren't something to worry about in most areas of the body. However, they are very dangerous when they occur on the spine, because ... more

Cervical Spondylosis

The general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the joints in the neck is cervical spondylosis, also known as cervical osteoarthritis. This condition, which progresses with age, usually occurs in men and women older than 40 years of age.

If someone experiences back pain that shoots down their leg, everyday activities may become difficult or even intolerable. The spine is made up of bones called vertebrae, which are cushioned by small oval pads of cartilage or disks that consist of a soft inner layer called nucleus, and a tough outer layer called ... more

The rare neurological disorder that impairs the body's involuntary (autonomic) functions such as digestion, heart rate, blood pressure and bladder function is known as multiple system atrophy (MSA), formerly called Shy-Drager syndrome.

Journal's Abstract

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.
