https://doi.org/10.1186/s12872-023-03164-4
BMC Cardiovascular Disorders; Tayae E, Amr E et. al.

Mar 16th, 2023 - Rapid diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the subject of many clinical studies as it enables an effective therapy, preventing adverse progression of AMI and increasing survival rates. Recent studies have revealed that specific blood-based long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are deregulated in patients with AMI and serve as promising diagnostic and prognostic tools. The current study ai...

BMC Infectious Diseases; Hu S, Lu Y et. al.

Mar 16th, 2023 - The HIV epidemic is still expanding among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China, but HIV testing rates remain suboptimal. Network-based interventions, such as secondary distribution, have shown promise to expand HIV self-testing (HIVST) among partners of MSM living with HIV (MLWH) but have not been widely implemented. Monetary incentives could enhance the secondary distribution of HIVST in s...

Public Health Research & Practice; Stone E, Dodd RH et. al.

Mar 16th, 2023 - Lung cancer causes nearly 2 million deaths per year worldwide, and cases continue to rise. Most lung cancer is diagnosed at late, incurable stages, and the five-year survival is a fraction of that for other common cancers, including breast, prostate, melanoma and colorectal cancer. Lung cancer screening (LCS) in high-risk populations using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) could potentially s...
