Study: HPV Shot Even Helps Women Who Didn't Get It

By Amy Norton HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- The vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) is highly effective in young women -- and may even offer some protection to those who don't get it, a new study suggests. Researchers said the findings add to evidence that the vaccine -- which ultimately cuts the risk of several cancers -- is a boon to public health. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause genital warts. In some people, HPV infection becomes persistent, and that can eventually leads to cervical cancer, or tumors of the vagina, penis, anus...

What determines the birth weight of a baby?

Washington: Recent findings have discovered links between genetic code and birth weight of human beings which explain how mothers' and babies' genes influence birth weight. Scientists have long known that babies who are particularly small at birth have a higher risk of birth complications, and also tend to be more prone than average weight babies to high blood pressure in adulthood. Findings of the study were published in the Journal of Nature Genetics. As part of the study, the researchers looked at genetic information from 230,069 mothers, with the birth weight of one child each, in addition to genetic information...

Body clock disruption to affect circadian level

Washington: A recent study suggests that eating time is important knowledge for the human body which impacts the health of people. Furthermore, researchers identified insulin as a primary signal that helps communicate the timing of meals to the cellular clocks located across our body, commonly known as the body clock. The team behind the research believes this improved understanding may lead to new ways to alleviate the ill-health associated with disruption to the body clock. The body clock - also known as the circadian rhythm - is a 24-hour biological cycle that occurs individually in every cell of the body,...

That is a reality for some -- women in particular -- who suffer from severe tinnitus, new research shows. The survey of 72,000 Swedish adults found that 9% of women who suffered from severe tinnitus had attempted suicide, as had 5.5% of men. After analyzing the data, European researchers found that the association between ringing ears and risk for attempted suicide was only significant for women. "It is...
