Sure result: pregnancy test – the timing must be right

Women often cannot wait for the first pregnancy test. Timing is everything. Not only is the right time in a woman’s cycle important, but also the time of day.

In order for a pregnancy test to be meaningful, women should use it when they first go to the toilet in the morning. This is what the Federal Association of German Pharmacists’ Associations advises in its magazine “Neue Apotheken Illustrierte”.

Urine that has collected in the bladder overnight contains most of the pregnancy hormone choringonadotropin (hCG) – this is the hormone the test detects.

The woman should wait to take the test until she normally has her period. However, there are also early tests that are able to detect hCG beforehand. If the test is negative but there is still no menstrual period, it is worth doing a new test a few days later.

Before today’s common test strips were developed, pharmacists kept frogs in terrariums. They discovered that the African clawed frog produces sperm cells when urine from a pregnant woman is injected under its skin. Pharmacists started offering this service in the 1930s, reports the magazine. It wasn’t until 1960 that chemical methods were used to detect hCG. (dpa)

Legionellosis outbreak in Quebec in 2012: the collective action group is growing | News | The sun

Dn a judgment rendered on Monday, the Superior Court authorized the request to modify the group of the class action filed by the attorneys of Solange Allen, whose spouse died on August 19, 2012 from legionellosis.

The prosecutors of Ménard Martin Avocats got their hands last February on the file of the epidemiological investigation of the regional director of public health of the Capitale-Nationale, which established at approximately 180 the number of victims of legionellosis. In the meantime, they have received calls from people claiming to have had the disease. These people sent them their medical files. By comparing the two lists, plaintiff’s attorneys found a discrepancy.

These people would have contracted the bacteria without there being a declaration made to the Regional Director of Public Health under the MADO system (notifiable diseases). Either they were diagnosed with Legionellosis following a positive urine antigen test without their doctor notifying public health, or they showed symptoms of the disease without having a positive urine test.

According to expert Jean Joly, whose report was filed in the Court’s file, the urine test would only be valid in 80% of cases of people with legionellosis. In other words, 20% would be sick without the urine test confirming it.

More than 200 victims

In total, some 37 people would have contracted legionellosis in Quebec in 2012 without their case being transmitted to public health, according to lawyer Jean-Pierre Ménard. These victims, who are in addition to the 180 others, are thought to reside in large part in Quebec. An Australian visiting the capital that summer is also said to have contracted the disease.

Public health authorities, the Attorney General of Quebec and the CSQ, owner of the cooling tower at the origin of the outbreak, opposed the request of Solange Allen’s attorneys, arguing in particular that the recourse of people not covered by the initial authorization to bring a class action was prescribed.

The defendants also pleaded that the only way for a possible new member to join the group is to have had a positive urine test and for their case to have been referred to public health.

In its judgment, the Superior Court reiterates that the Civil Code contains a provision which allows a person not to be opposed to the prescription of his recourse: the impossibility of acting. She stresses that people called to be part of the group of legionellosis victims cannot know whether or not a declaration has been produced about them, this document being sent only to public health.

“Should the potential new members of the group, victims of Legionellosis, be penalized because their doctor did not complete a form?” [de déclaration d’une MADO]? Can we penalize a victim who does not know that he is no longer part of the group? To ask the question is to answer it, ”writes Judge Clément Samson.

Judge Samson considers, moreover, that at the stage of modifying the group, it is “not useful” to discuss the criteria enabling a person to be affirmed that a person is suffering from Legionella, these questions having to be debated on the merits.

Health: Vitiligo is often associated with other autoimmune conditions

In Vitiligo, also known as white spot disease, the skin cells responsible for pigment formation gradually die off. The result is bright spots on the skin. Those affected should get a medical diagnosis as soon as possible.

If the skin loses its color in places, Vitiligo can be behind it. The Professional Association of German Dermatologists (BVDD) advises that a doctor should clarify at an early stage whether it is actually the so-called white spot disease or another pigment disorder. This is not only important to curb the spread of the disease. Early diagnosis also makes sense because every third Vitiligo patient has another autoimmune disease. Thyroid disorders, diabetes or lupus erythematosus, for example, are possible and should also be treated specifically.

In Vitiligo, the skin cells responsible for pigment formation gradually die off. Science does not yet know exactly why this is so. According to the BVDD, the face, hands, feet, armpits, the skin around the navel or in the genital area are particularly affected. The white spots rarely disappear again, but sometimes some of them become smaller. (dpa)

Fashion: Dirt and sebum: what activated charcoal should do in cosmetics

Many cosmetics contain activated charcoal. But why actually? And what is so-called activated carbon?

It is a form of coal obtained by heating wood or other organic substances in the absence of air. This is explained by the experts in the magazine “Öko-Test” (issue 1/2016). It is activated by reacting with chemicals or gases. The special property: activated carbon has a high adsorption capacity, so it can bind substances to itself.

It is used in cosmetics, among other things, because of this adsorbing effect – to bind dirt and excess sebum, for example. However, it has not yet been scientifically proven sufficiently whether the activated carbon in cosmetics actually works as desired, according to the “Öko-Test”. She has currently tested 15 products with activated carbon. The result was mixed – for example because some products contained questionable ingredients. (dpa)

Antibiotics, too automatic, threaten global health

Global antibiotic consumption increased 65% between 2000 and 2015, boosted by booming use in middle and low-income countries but posing a threat to global health, researchers reported.

Because these experts recalled from the start of their report that “antibiotic resistance, caused by the consumption of antibiotics, is a growing threat to global health”.

Published Monday in the American journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), this study, based in part on projections, makes you dizzy: “The total global consumption of antibiotics in 2015 was estimated at 42.3 billion doses daily determined “.

In the 76 countries studied, the absorption of antibiotics increased from 21.1 billion daily doses determined in 2000 to 34.8 billion in 2015.

Correlated to the increase in their gross domestic product (GDP), the level of antibiotic consumption has particularly increased in middle and low income countries (LMIC): + 114% in 16 years, to reach 24.5 billion determined daily doses.

For Eili Klein, a researcher at the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy and one of the study’s authors, this increase means “better access to needed drugs in countries with many diseases that can be treated effectively with antibiotics “.

But the researcher warns: “As more countries gain access to these drugs, these (consumption) rates will increase (…) which will lead to higher rates of resistance” to antibiotics.

However, this bacterial resistance is responsible for 700,000 deaths per year worldwide according to a group of international experts formed in 2014 in the United Kingdom.

– 77% increase –

Consumption is lower for high income countries (HICs), with 10.3 billion daily doses. And between 2000 and 2015, the increase was only 6%.

The consumption rate per 1,000 inhabitants per year remains much higher in high-income countries. But in 16 years, this rate has increased by 77% for middle- and low-income countries, while it has fallen by 4% for rich countries.

And some LMIC countries have exceeded the antibiotic consumption rate of high income countries.

In 2015, Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria and Romania were among the six countries with the highest antibiotic consumption rates, while in 2000, the top five all belonged to the category of countries with the highest levels of antibiotics. returned.

Another example, in 16 years, the consumption of antibiotics has doubled in India, increased by 79% in China and 65% in Pakistan. These three countries are the largest users of antibiotics among the LMIC countries.

On the contrary, the increase was only marginal in the three leading countries of consumption in high-income nations, the United States, France and Italy, explains the study.

– Salvation from humanity –

Researchers are sounding the alarm for the future: “Projections of global antibiotic consumption in 2030, assuming no change in policy, are up to 200% higher than the 42 billion daily doses determined in 2015”.

“Eliminating this unnecessary use (of antibiotics) should be a first step and a priority for each country,” Eili Klein told AFP.

“30% of the use in high-income countries is inappropriate,” he adds, adding that the considerable consumption of antibiotics in some LMIC countries also suggests that they are being used inappropriately there.

Antibiotic resistance could cause ten million deaths per year by 2050, a recent British study reported.

The salvation of mankind could then perhaps come from the platypuses. This animal, which lives in Australia, is one of the few mammals that lay eggs. An Australian team recently discovered that a protein contained in the breast milk of the platypus could have therapeutic benefits for humans.

Biebricher visits DRK Middle Rhine

How many people are currently accommodated in the two initial reception facilities for refugees operated by the DRK-Mittelrhein? How many employees take care of them? And what are the plans for the next few months? Andreas Biebricher, member of the Landtag (MdL), recently dealt with these questions during a visit to the DRK Middle Rhine. “In Bubenheim we currently look after 123 people and on Asterstein there are 58”, says Katharina Göricke, head of the initial reception facilities. While the camp on the Asterstein is to be closed at the end of June, operations in Bubenheim only just started in December. The maximum occupancy of up to 800 people is possible here until April. 25 employees will then take care of the diverse concerns and needs of the refugees. “At the moment everything is going very well,” says Göricke, “and the bus connection to the city of Koblenz is particularly popular.”

The DRK Middle Rhine has had particularly good experiences on the Asterstein with the support of local residents and local associations. “I was very impressed by the great amount of volunteer work,” says Andreas Biebricher, “I would like to thank everyone who worked for the refugees.” The DRK Middle Rhine also received a lot of support from the State Fire Brigade and Disaster Protection School (LFSKS). “The cooperation has always worked very well,” says Leo Biewer, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the DRK-Mittelrhein. The DRK Middle Rhine is now hoping for similar positive reactions on the Asterstein and in Stolzenfels. According to previous plans, a facility for unaccompanied minor refugees will open in Stolzenfels at the beginning of February. Up to 18 young people will live there in three residential groups. “For us this is a very exciting, but also completely new task,” says Volker Grabe, managing director of the DRK-Mittelrhein. The focus of supervision will be on learning the language, structuring everyday life and professional orientation.
