Breakthrough in managing yellow fever disease
(University of California - Riverside) Found in South America and sub-Saharan Africa, each year yellow fever results in 200,000 new cases and kills 30,000 people. About 900 million people are at risk of contracting the disease. Now a research team led by a biomedical scientist at UC Riverside has determined that the yellow fever virus, a hemorrhagic fever virus, replicates primarily in the liver; other organ failures that often follow in people with the disease are due to secondary effects.

Christine Brock obituary
My friend Christine Brock, who has died from cancer aged 61, was a lifelong animal rights campaigner, and a biomedical scientist engaged in research to expose scientific and ethical flaws in animal experimentation.Daughter of Karin and Douglas Brock, Chris was born in Exeter. Because of her father’s various RAF postings, the family moved around a lot; Chris received most of her secondary education at Downer grammar school in Edgware, Middlesex. Continue reading...

Teratomas: the tumours that can transform into ‘evil twins’
Look away if you’re squeamish – our bodies are capable of creating macabre structures when our cells go awry, and this lump of bone, hair and teeth is just one of themMaking the weird news last week was Yamini Karanam, who underwent surgery in Los Angeles after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The benign lump became a sensation when it turned out to be a grotesque growth containing bone, hair and teeth. Known to medical science as a teratoma (from the Greek for “monstrous tumour”), news wires quoted Karanam’s post-surgical joke that it was her “evil twin sister” who’d been torturing her.Her sentiment wa...

8 Rare 'House, M.D.' Cases That Can Actually Happen (And How To Avoid Them)
"House, M.D.," starring Hugh Laurie as a pill-popping genius, was conceived as the medical version of "Sherlock Holmes" and ran for eight seasons on Fox. Sunday, Nov. 16, marked the 10-year anniversary of the premiere. Though it's easy to look back on the show and focus on some of the unbelievable details of the cases, it might surprise you to learn that "House" was actually much more realistic than you thought. Yeah, the odds of all these rare medical cases coming to one hospital in New Jersey are pretty slim, but a variety of sources -- including Andrew Holtz, former CNN Medical Correspondent and author of Medical Scien...
