This is a single-arm interventional study of 1000 male circumcision procedures using the ShangRing device. The primary objective of the study is to enhance understanding of the potential c...
This prospective study will evaluate the safety and acceptability of the ShangRing device for medical male circumcision (MMC) during routine service delivery in Namitete, Malawi
In this study of neonatal male circumcision (NMC), the investigators will examine acceptability of among parents, feasibility of training providers and implementing services in various cli...
Background: Novel HIV prevention approaches are urgently needed in Botswana and elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa. Although adult male circumcision has been shown to reduce the acquisition o...
Background: Medical male circumcision (MMC) for HIV prevention is a priority in 14 East and Southern African countries, and the long-term sustainability of MMC programs could best be achie...
Voluntary medical male circumcision has been promoted in high HIV prevalence settings to prevent HIV acquisition in males. However, the uptake of circumcision in many sub-Saharan African settings rema...

Grade V post-circumcision penile injury is known as "total phallic loss". It is usually seen with the use of mono-polar electro-cautery for circumcision resulting in penile necrosis. We report on a ne...
An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.
Excision of the prepuce of the penis (FORESKIN) or part of it.
Electrodes with an extremely small tip, used in a voltage clamp or other apparatus to stimulate or record bioelectric potentials of single cells intracellularly or extracellularly. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A general term encompassing three types of excision of the external female genitalia - Sunna, clitoridectomy, and infibulation. It is associated with severe health risks and has been declared illegal in many places, but continues to be widely practiced in a number of countries, particularly in Africa.
