The cryptocurrency market surpassed the barrier of $100 billion market capitalization in June 2017, after months of steady growth. Despite its increasing relevance in the financial world, a comprehensive analysis of the whole system is still lacking, as most studies have focused exclusively on the behaviour of one (Bitcoin) or few cryptocurrencies. Here, we consider the history of the entire market and analyse the behaviour of 1469 cryptocurrencies introduced between April 2013 and May 2017. We reveal that,...
Teaching Vaginal Hysterectomy via Simulation: Creation and Validation of the Objective Skills Assessment Tool for Simulated Vaginal Hysterectomy on a Task Trainer and Performance Among Different Levels of Trainees.
The use of simulation-based education to train surgeons is widely accepted. Although many authors describe the use of an Objective Skills Assessment Test (OSAT) to assess performance of various surgical procedures, there is a paucity of research on use of this modality to evaluate vaginal surgery skills. We created a vaginal hysterectomy procedure-specific checklist (PSC) to complete the OSAT (which is composed of a PSC and a global rating scale [GRS]). The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the...
A common justification for high cancer drug prices is the sizable research and development (R&D) outlay necessary to bring a drug to the US market. A recent estimate of R&D spending is $2.7 billion (2017 US dollars). However, this analysis lacks transparency and independent replication.
Of the key technologies listed as "ready to propel industries and transform our world" in the 2017 report Top 50 Emerging Technologies: Growth Opportunities of Strategic Imperative, most fall under the scope of biomedical engineering (BME). Issued by the major market research and analysis company Frost and Sullivan , the report's findings are no surprise to the researchers, clinicians, and others who are heavily invested in this field.
The Global Virus Network (GVN) was established in 2011 to strengthen research and responses to emerging viral causes of human disease and to prepare against new viral pandemics. There are now 40 GVN Centers of Excellence and 6 Affiliate laboratories in 24 countries. The 2017 meeting was held from September 25-27 in Melbourne, Australia, and was hosted by the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity and the Institut Pasteur. This report highlights the recent accomplishments of GVN researchers in se...
Due to the remarkable global surge in activity in rare diseases research over the last six years, including contributions by the International Rare Diseases Research Consortium (IRDiRC), the Consortium's 2020 goals have been largely achieved by 2017. Though these developments are gratifying, enormous challenges remain. With this paradox in mind, IRDiRC set new global rare disease goals for the coming decade with the ultimate aim of improved health for people living with rare diseases worldwide. This article...
Accurate incidence estimates are needed to characterize the HIV epidemic and guide prevention efforts. HIV Incidence assays are cost-effective laboratory assays that provide incidence estimates from cross-sectional surveys. We conducted a global market assessment of HIV incidence assays under three market scenarios and estimated the economic value of improved incidence assays.
For many people, the need for parenthood remains unfulfilled due to biological reasons and a remedy for these individuals is assisted reproduction (AR). Because of widely differing and sometimes incompatible legislations around the world related to AR, there is considerable confusion across national borders. Within Europe, Greece seems to be in a comparatively favorable position because of lower restrictions and the availability of decent quality specialized medical facilities. This research is a market stu...

The aim of the study was to determine the utility of vaginal pH as a marker of menopause and vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA) before and after local estrogen treatment.
Building and strengthening capacity for cardiovascular research in Africa through technical training workshops: a report of the joint course on health research methods by the Clinical Research Education Networking and Consultancy and the Ivorian Society of Cardiology.
Africa bears a quarter of the global burden of disease but contributes less than 2% of the global research publications on health, partially due to a lack of expertise and skills to carry out scientific research. We report on a short course on research methods organised by the Clinical Research Education Networking and Consultancy (CRENC) during the third international congress of the Ivorian Cardiac Society (SICARD) in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Results from the pre- and post-test evaluation during this cours...
Primary vaginal melanoma is a rare mucosal neoplasm, which is more aggressive than cutaneous melanoma. Information regarding its morphologic patterns is limited. In particular, the rhabdoid phenotype, mostly observed in metastatic or recurrent cutaneous melanomas, has yet to be reported at this anatomic location. Hence, a potential diagnostic difficulty may arise because of the inability to recognize this unusual histologic variant and its immunohistochemical aberrance. In this report, we describe the case ...
Rheumatic heart disease remains an important preventable cause of cardiovascular death and disability, particularly in low-income and middle-income countries. We estimated global, regional, and national trends in the prevalence of and mortality due to rheumatic heart disease as part of the 2015 Global Burden of Disease study.
Preoperative fistulas are rare in patients with bladder mucosa-invading gynecological tumors. This is the first reported case of a vesico-vaginal fistula identified using 2-deoxy-2-[fluorine-18]fluoro-d-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET/CT) in a patient with vaginal cancer. A 61-year-old woman with vaginal cancer underwent (18)F-FDG-PET/CT for assessment of the mass and lymph nodes. Assessment was difficult because overlap of FDG uptake occurred on (18)F-FDG-PET/CT imag...
A 32-y-old married woman was admitted with intense vaginal discharge with foul odor, itching, groin pain, and infertility for the past 5 y. Candida albicans was isolated from the culture of vaginal swab. The patient was diagnosed with chronic vaginal candida infection. She failed to respond to integrative medicine methods prescribed. Recovery was achieved with the application of apple cider vinegar. Alternative treatment methods can be employed in patients unresponsive to medical therapies. As being one of ...

The prevalence of narrow provider networks on the ACA Marketplace is trending down. In 2017, 21% of plans had narrow networks, down from 25% in 2016. The largest single factor was that 70% of plans from National carriers exited the market and these plans had narrower networks than returning plans. Exits account for more than half of the decline in the prevalence of narrow networks, with the rest attributed to broadening networks among stable plans, particularly among Blues carriers. The narrow network strat...
The aim of the present study was to compare cardiac structure as well as global and regional cardiac function in athletes with and without myocardial fibrosis (MF). Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging with late gadolinium enhancement was used to detect MF and global cardiac structure in nine lifelong veteran endurance athletes (58 ± 5 years, 43 ± 5 years of training). Transthoracic echocardiography using tissue-Doppler and myocardial strain imaging assessed global and regional (18 segments) longitu...
Traditional azole antifungal formulations suffer from poor retention in the vaginal cavity, irritation and burning of the vaginal area. In the present work, we aim at the development of a novel miconazole (MCZ) microsponges gel as an attractive dosage form for vaginal candidiasis. The proposed formula has the potential to minimize the local side effects of the drug due to the controlled release characteristic, which increases patient compliance. Moreover, the mucosal retention effect of the microsponges in ...
