Oxfam: World must do more to stop Ebola becoming ‘disaster of our time’

NewsWorld365 - October 19, 2014
ebola

Countries must step up efforts to tackle the spread of Ebola in west Africa by providing more troops, funding and medical staff to prevent it from becoming the “definitive humanitarian disaster of our generation”, Oxfam has warned. The charity said the world had less than two months to curb the deadly virus, which has killed 4,500 people, but noted a crippling shortfall in military personnel to provide logistical support across the countries worst affected – Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Its stark warning came as Britain and the US said the international community will be responsible for a substantial loss of life […]

Diabetics at a higher risk of heart failure

People with diabetes who otherwise appear healthy may have a six-fold higher risk of developing heart failure regardless of their cholesterol levels, shows an alarming study. “It looks like diabetes may be slowly killing heart muscle in ways we had not thought of before,” said lead researcher Elizabeth Selvin, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. To reach this conclusion, researchers employed an ultra-sensitive test to identify minute levels of a protein called troponin that is released into the blood when heart cells die. For the study, researchers measured troponin concentrations in […]

Canada to donate untested Ebola vaccines

The first two doses of an experimental serum created to treat Ebola went to American missionaries. Then the drug was sent to treat a Spanish priest. The two Americans, Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, appear to be recovering. The priest, Miguel Pajares, died Tuesday morning. That’s the problem with experimental drugs that have never been clinically tested in humans: No one knows whether they’ll work — and if they do, in whom. This week, the World Health Organization gathered a group of ethicists to decide whether unproven medications and vaccines should be used in the current Ebola outbreak. As the death toll […]

l Say hello to a runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing fits: It’s the start of allergy season for more than 24.2 million Americans. And this year, say experts, symptoms may be worse than ever. “Global warming is extending the growing and pollinating season, and that extends the allergy season,” explains Bryan Martin, vice president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and director of Ohio State University’s allergy/immunology fellowship program. Thanks to a wetter and longer-than-normal winter, “we’re going to have a walloping allergy season this year.” Even if you’re familiar with the symptoms of allergies, you may have […]

Researchers have uncovered evidence that sugar has a direct effect on risk factors for heart disease, and is likely to impact on blood pressure, independent of weight gain. Research Fellow with Otago’s Department of Human Nutrition Dr Lisa Te Morenga, Professor Jim Mann and colleagues have conducted a review and meta-analysis of all international studies that compared the effects of higher versus lower added sugar consumption on blood pressure and lipids (blood fats or cholesterol) – both of which are important cardiovascular risk-factors. They located dietary intervention trials published in English-speaking journals between 1965 and 2013, comparing diets where the […]

 Sixty-eight and counting. An outbreak of measles in Ohio has infected 68 people, adding to what is already an 18-year high of measles cases in the United States. That’s disturbing news for health professionals. The contagious infectious disease was considered eliminated in the United States in 2000. The outbreak in Ohio began with unvaccinated travelers to the Philippines, the state’s Department of Health said Monday. Philippines is experiencing a very large measles outbreak; at least 20,000 confirmed and suspected cases have been reported in the Asian nation. California, another state also reporting a high number of measles cases this year, […]

Passive smoking causes lasting damage to children’s arteries, prematurely ageing their blood vessels by more than three years, say researchers. The damage – thickening of blood vessel walls – increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes in later life, they say in the European Heart Journal.

Tackling pneumonia among children in Bangladesh is proving to be difficult, an official has admitted. According to Dr Shams El Arifeen, director of the centre for child and adolescent health at Icddr,b, progress in dealing with a number of widespread health issues in the country has been made in recent years. However, he stated that driving down pneumonia rates among children “remains a challenge”. Indeed, Dr El Arifeen said just one in three youngsters who are believed to have the condition receive care from a health worker or facility. “In 2011, we measured treatment with antibiotics with some surprising results […]

Poor diagnosis driving global multidrug-resistant TB, WHO warns

 Half a million people fell sick with dangerous superbug strains of tuberculosis (TB) in 2012, but fewer than one in four were diagnosed, putting the rest at risk of dying due to the wrong medicines or no treatment at all. Latest data from the World Health Organisation (WHO), which says drug-resistant TB is a “global health security risk”, showed a third of the estimated 9 million people who contract TB in any form each year do not get the care they need. This has led to drug resistance spreading around the world at an alarming rate and has given rise […]
