Today is World Osteoporosis Day, 2019!

World Osteoporosis Day (WOD), on October 20 each year, marks a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. WOD aims to make osteoporosis and fracture prevention a global health priority by reaching out to health-care professionals, the media, policy makers, patients, and the public at large. In 2019 the campaign will feature “THAT’S OSTEOPOROSIS” as a headline, and, for the first time, will highlight emotionally impactful visuals and stories of real people living with osteoporosis in all regions of the world.

The campaign will emphasize the direct link between osteoporosis (the silent, underlying disease) and broken bones, which have a serious, life-changing impact in terms of pain, disability, lost independence and inability to carry out tasks of everyday life.

World Stroke Day, 2018!

 

world-stroke-day-bentham-science-avail-discount-banner-3

Around 80 million people living in the world today have experienced a stroke and over 50m survivors live with some form of permanent disability as a result. While for many, life after stroke won’t be quite the same, with the right care and support living a meaningful life is still possible. As millions of stroke survivors show us every day, it is possible to get #UpAgainAfterStroke.

World Polio Day, 2018!

 

World-Polio-Day-bentham-science-avail-discout-banner-2.jpg

 

World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Use of this inactivated poliovirus vaccine and subsequent widespread use of the oral poliovirus, developed by Albert Sabin, led to the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988. As of 2013, GPEI had reduced polio worldwide by 99%.

Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. There is no cure, but there are safe and effective vaccines. Polio can be prevented through immunization. Polio vaccine, given multiple times, almost always protects a child for life. The strategy to eradicate polio is therefore based on preventing infection by immunizing every child until transmission stops and the world is polio-free.

ARTICLE TO READ ON WORLD HEART DAY, 2018!

 

Hypertensive Heart Disease and the Role of Aldosterone Antagonists

 

Author(s): Chanwit Roongsritong, Ashwani Kumar, Leigh Ann Jenkins.

 

 

Abstract:

Hypertensive heart disease (HHD) encompasses a spectrum of abnormalities resulting from structural and functional adaptations to chronic pressure overload. The clinical manifestations of HHD range from asymptomatic left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) to symptomatic heart failure. HHD has been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and all cause mortality. However, regression of LVH by antihypertensive therapy has been associated with improved outcome. The pathogenesis of HHD involves various hemodynamic and nonhemodynamic factors including neurohormone, aldosterone. Aldosterone enhances myocardial fibrosis through its direct effect on mineralocorticoid and angiotensin II receptors leading to excessive collagen deposition within the myocardium. Increased myocardial fibrosis is a major determinant of hypertensive remodeling and the transition to heart failure. Aldosterone antagonists are effective antihypertensive agents. Additionally, they have been shown to improve LV structural remodeling, systolic and diastolic function in patients with HHD independent of its effect on blood pressure. Data on long-term benefit of these agents have thus far been limited to patients with advanced systolic heart failure and post-acute myocardial infarction LV systolic dysfunction. The potential benefit of aldosterone antagonists in patients with heart failure and preserved LV systolic function is currently being investigated in large scale clinical trials.

The Role of Myocardial Collagen Network in Hypertensive Heart Disease

 

Author(s): Javier Diez, Begona Lopez, Arantxa Gonzalez, Ramon Querejeta.

 

Abstract:

It is time to recognize that the quality, not quantity, of myocardium in hypertensive heart disease is responsible for adverse cardiovascular events. Experimental and clinical available data indicate that myocardial fibrosis due to the exaggerated accumulation of collagen type I and type III fibers predisposes to an enhanced risk of diastolic and/or systolic ventricular dysfunction, symptomatic heart failure, ischemic heart disease, and arrhythmia in patients with hypertensive heart disease. Thus, management of these patients must not only focus on detection and regression of left ventricular hypertrophy. Far more sensible are interventions aimed to detect and target hypertensive myocardial fibrosis. The available data on the use of biochemical and/or imaging methodologies to address excessive accumulation of collagen fibers in the myocardium of hypertensive patients are promising. On the other hand, preliminary data suggest that the goal of reducing myocardial fibrosis is achievable in patients with hypertensive heart disease treated with specific anti hypertensive agents. Collectively, these findings set the stage for larger trials where-in noninvasive measures and reparative strategies of myocardial fibrosis to prevent heart failure could prove useful.

World Heart Day, 2018!

 

 

world-heart-day-avial-discount-banner.jpg

 

World Heart Day is part of an international campaign to spread awareness about heart disease and stroke prevention. This is the perfect day to quit smoking, get exercising and start eating healthy – all in the name of keeping your ticker in good working order, and improving the health and well being of people the world over.

The World Heart Federation have found that heart disease and strokes are the world’s leading cause of death, killing 17.1 million people every year – that’s more than victims of cancer, HIV and AIDS and malaria.

“We all know that National Nutrition Week is being observed from 1st to 7th September. The main objective of this event highlights the importance to learn and spread awareness about the importance of child nutrition. Moreover, this week is surrounded by the notion that is to intensify awareness generation on the importance of nutrition for health,which directly and indirectly puts significant impact on the productivity, development and economic growth, eventually affecting the Nation’s Development”

ARTICLE TO READ ON WORLD YOUTH DAY 2018

Using Digital and Social Media Metrics to Develop Mental Health Approaches for Youth

Author(s): Christina Carew, Stan Kutcher, Yifeng Wei, Alan McLuckie.

 

 

 

Abstract:

Objective: The objective of this project was to investigate the online behaviors of adolescent and adult populations with respect to mental health information seeking, and identify differences in approaches within age groups and geographical location.

Method: This content analysis approach identified and mapped patterns in online conversations. The search data was able to quantify who was looking for teen mental health information, where they were looking, and what they were looking for. Additional analysis included the preferred format of information presentation and how mental health searches varied over time.

Results: The results of the analysis revealed that between 2006 (baseline) to 2010, a 200% increase in online activity regarding mental health was identified. Adults were most likely to ignite (initiate) conversations online about depression, followed by: anxiety, doctors, suicide, treatments, and OCD. For teens, depression was also the most ignited topic area, followed by: anxiety, alcohol, suicide, sexting and marijuana. While adults were often seeking information about the disorders and treatment options, teens tended to discuss concerns through the use of personal stories.

Conclusion: This research provides insight into how digital and social media can be used to engage both youth and adult discussions about mental health. We report substantive audience driven differences that can inform the development of targeted mental health knowledge translation methods and activities. A broader understanding of the key mental health topics of interest was garnered, in addition to how online use varied between audiences. These results have several implications for mental health knowledge translation including tactics to connect with various stakeholders.
