Ebola is a viral illness of which the initial symptoms can include a sudden fever, intense weakness, muscle pain and a sore throat, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Airborne transmission of Ebola virus has been hypothesized but not demonstrated in humans. Ebola is not spread through the air or by water, or in general, by food. However, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats. The disease infects humans through close contact with infected animals, including chimpanzees, fruit bats, and forest antelope. Ebola virus can be transmitted by direct contact with blood, bodily fluids, or skin of patients with or who died of Ebola virus disease. As of late October 2014, the World Health Organization reported 13,567 suspected cases and 4922 deaths, although the agency believes that this substantially understates the magnitude of the outbreak. Experimental vaccines and treatments for Ebola are under development, but they have not yet been fully tested for safety or effectiveness. © 2014 The Authors.

Cervical cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer in women worldwide. One way by which the incidence of this malignant disease can be minimized is by imparting knowledge through health education. This study aimed at developing an educational package on cervical cancer (EPCC) and determining its effectiveness in terms of significant increase in knowledge of rural women regarding cervical cancer. A one group pre-test, post-test design was adopted. Thirty rural women were selected using a convenient sampling method. Data were collected using a demographic questionnaire and a structured knowledge questionnaire developed by the researchers. The EPCC was designed for a duration of one hour and 10 minutes. The structured knowledge questionnaire was first administered as the pre-test, following which knowledge on cervical cancer was imparted using the EPCC. On the 8th day, the post-test was administered. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The mean post-test knowledge score of the women regarding cervical cancer was significantly higher than that of their mean pre-test score, indicating that the EPCC was effective in improving the knowledge of rural women on cervical cancer. The association between pre-test knowledge scores and selected demo-graphic variables were computed using chi-square test showed that pre-test knowledge score of the women regarding cervical cancer was independent of all the socio-demographic variables. It was concluded that the EPCC is effective in improving the knowledge of women, regarding cervical cancer. Since the prevalence of cervical cancer is high, there is an immediate need to educate women on prevention of cervical cancer.

In search of potential therapeutics for tuberculosis, we describe herewith the synthesis, characterization and antimycobacterial activity of 1,5-dimethyl-2-phenyl-4-([5-(arylamino)-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl]methylamino)-1, 2-dihydro-3H-pyrazol-3-one analogues. Among the synthesized compounds, 4-[(5-[(4-fluorophenylamino]-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)methylamino]-1,2-dihydro-1, 5-dimethyl-2-phenylpyrazol-3-one (4a) was found to be the most promising compound active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H 37Rv and isoniazid resistant M. tuberculosis with minimum inhibitory concentrations, 0.78 and 3.12 μg/mL, respectively, free from any cytotoxicity (>62.5 μg/mL). © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The developing world is still endemic to rabies, tetanus, leprosy, and malaria. Globally more than 55. 000 people die of rabies each year, about 95% in Asia and Africa. Annually, more than 10 million people, mostly in Asia, receive postexposure vaccination against the disease. World Health Organization estimated tetanus-related deaths at 163. 000 in 2004 worldwide. Globally, the annual detection of new cases of leprosy continues to decline and the global case detection declined by 3.54% during 2008 compared to 2007. Malaria is endemic in most countries, except the US, Canada, Europe, and Russia. Malaria accounts for 1.5-2.7 million deaths annually. Much of the disease burden related to these four infections is preventable. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Cardiovascular disease prevention is a continuum that encompasses the life-course. This article discusses preventive strategies focusing on policy and clinical initiatives including primordial prevention (lifestyle changes involving smoking, diet and exercise), primary prevention (risk factor control), and secondary prevention (acute and chronic disease management). Combined use of all the three strategies can have an immediate and large impact on reducing CVD morbidity and mortality. © 2011.
