Think Globally, Act Locally

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

“Think globally, act locally” is a popular global health idea that encourages people to consider the health of the entire planet while taking actions in their own cities and communities. And it’s an idea that inspired a group of students in the Perelman School of Medicine to join with other medical schools in Philadelphia and start a group dedicated to the growing field of global surgery. Until recently, surgery has been largely omitted from global health efforts, taking a back seat to infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. But as progress is made to treat and prevent these diseases, it has become clear that there is a significant need to focus on treating people in resource-limited settings who are in need of surgical care. And this need touches almost every aspect of health care from cancer to obstetrics to orthopedics. In fact, according to the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, more than 18 million people die each year from lack of surgical care.

Biologists Discover Source for Boosting Tumor Cell Drug Sensitivity

University of California San Diego

Biologists have discovered a new way of re-sensitizing drug-resistant tumor cells to DNA-damaging agents, the most widely used group of cancer drugs. Researchers describe how a gene known as Schlafen 11 controls the sensitivity of tumor cells to DDAs. Their research may pave the way to new strategies to overcome chemotherapeutic drug resistance.

HIV-Positive Infants Are at High Risk for Acquiring Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

Infants who also were infected before birth by the virus that causes AIDS were especially prone to CMV infection. The researchers found that 23 percent of the infants who became infected with HIV during the mother’s pregnancy also were infected with CMV; 18 percent who were infected with HIV either during pregnancy or birth acquired congenital CMV; and 4.
