first_imgBeset with injury worries but bolstered by the return of talismanic skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni from a break, world number one India take on the West Indies in the first Test of a three-match series, starting in Kingston, Jamaica, on Monday.Opener Murali Vijay, who was non-starter till Monday morning, has been declared fit. But Munaf Patel is still in doubt for the Test and if he missed out, it would be a huge blow for a side which is already without senior batsmen Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan.Vijay was hit painfully on his right forefinger in his very first net session in the Caribbean and went for an X-ray on Saturday.Munaf has been inactive for the better part of the week, having injured his right elbow during the preceding one-day series which India won 3-2.”Vijay is our first choice as an opener but if he is unfit, then Parthiv Patel will open the innings,” Dhoni said, while hoping Munaf will turn up fit on the morning of the Test.With replacement pacer Abhimanyu Mithun yet to arrive in the Caribbean due to visa issues, the visitors are seriously undermined in the bowling department.It now seems certain that Praveen Kumar will make his Test debut and give company to Ishant Sharma. Ishant has lately been a regular in India’s Test eleven but he is far from being the spearhead.India would have spinners Harbhajan Singh and Amit Mishra as the other frontline bowlers, which is ironical given the crying need for pacers on a hard and bouncy Sabina Park pitch.advertisementWest Indies players Kemar Roach, Ravi Rampaul, Devendra Bishoo and Ramnaresh Sarwan during practice in Kingston on Saturday. APWest Indies, on the other hand, could end up fielding fielding four fast bowlers to make the most of the prevailing conditions and carry the momentum of winning the last two ODIs.West Indies could play Fidel Edwards, Kemar Roach, Ravi Rampaul along with skipper Darren Sammy as its pace-bowling battery. Legspinner Devendra Bishoo will be the lone slow bowler.The hosts thus have a tailormade opportunity to catch the visitors napping as their fast bowlers can work their way past the untested openers and the batsmen can take advantage of a below- par Indian pace attack.The world’s top side is missing three of its regular batsmen but still has enough class to post a healthy total on the board.In Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman, the tourists have two batsmen who have 270 Tests and 47 centuries, besides nearly 20,000 Test runs between them.There would be some individual motivations for the Indians as Harbhajan Singh is just seven shy of the 400-wicket mark while Ishant Sharma (31 Tests) needs 10 more for his 100th wicket in Tests. Laxman (120 Tests) needs 97 runs to complete 8,000 runs.West Indies, despite missing on Chris Gayle, looks a reasonable side on paper. Opener Lendl Simmons was among the runs in the one-day series and left-hander Darren Bravo, along with the experienced Ramnaresh Sarwan, made a telling score in the final game. Veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul will add muscle to the middle order as would the underperforming Marlon Samuels. However, the hosts’ strength remains their bowling.- With inputs from PTI SquadsIndia: MS Dhoni (capt), Abhinav Mukund, Murali Vijay, Parthiv Patel, Virat Kohli, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra, Praveen Kumar and Ishant SharmaWest Indies: Darren Sammy (capt), Brendan Nash (vice-captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels and Ramnaresh SarwanMatch time: Live from Jamaica on TEN Cricket from 8:30 pmlast_img read more

first_imgDefinitionHIV infection is a condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The condition gradually destroys the immune system, which makes it harder for the body to fight infections.This article provides a general overview. For more detailed information, see:AIDSAcute HIV infectionAsymptomatic HIV infectionEarly symptomatic HIV infectionAlternative NamesHuman immunodeficiency virus infectionCauses, incidence, and risk factorsThe human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can be spread by the following:Through sexual contact — including oral, vaginal, and anal sexThrough blood — through blood transfusions, accidental needlesticks, or needle sharingFrom mother to child — a pregnant woman can transmit the virus to her fetus through their shared blood circulation, or a nursing mother can pass it to her baby in her breast milkRare ways the virus may be spreadinclude:Accidental needle injuryArtificial insemination with infected semenOrgan transplantation with infected organsBlood banks and orang donor programs screen donors, blood, and tissues thoroughly to prevent the risk of infection. HIV is NOT transmitted to a person who DONATES blood or organs. People who donate organs are never in direct contact with people who receive them. Likewise, a person who donates blood is never in contact with the person receiving it. In all these procedures, sterile needles and instruments are used.HIV infection is NOT spread by:Casual contact such as huggingMosquitoesParticipation in sportsTouching items that were touched by a person infected with the virusPeople at highest risk for getting HIV include:Injection drug users who share needlesInfants born to mothers with HIV who didnt receive HIV therapy during pregnancyPeoplewho haveunprotected sex, especially with people who have other high-risk behaviors, are HIV-positive, or have AIDSPeople who received blood transfusions or clotting products between 1977 and 1985 (before screening for the virus became standard practice)Sexual partners of those who participate in high-risk activities (such as injection drug use or anal sex)See also: AIDSadvertisementSymptomsPeople who become infected with HIV may not have any symptoms for up to 10 years, but they can still pass the infection to others. After you come in contact with the virus, it can take up to 3 months for a blood test to show that you have HIV.Symptoms related to HIV are usually due to a different infection in the body. Some symptoms related to HIV infection include:DiarrheaFatigueFeverFrequent vaginal yeast infectionsHeadacheMouth sores, including yeast infection (thrush)Muscle stiffness or achingRashes of different types, including seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasisSore throatSwollen lymph glandsNote: Many people have no symptoms when they are diagnosed with HIV.Signs and testsThe HIV ELISA and HIV Western blot tests detect antibodies to the HIV virus in the blood. Both tests must be positive to confirm an HIV infection. Having these antibodies means you are infected with HIV.If the test is negative (no antibodies found) and you have risk factors for HIV infection, you should be retested in 3 months.If the HIV ELISA and HIV Western blot tests are positive, other blood tests can be done to determine how much HIV is in your bloodstream.A complete blood count (CBC) and white blood cell differential may also show abnormalities.A lower-than-normal CD4 cell count may be a sign that the virus is damaging your immune system.TreatmentDoctors usually recommend medicine for patients who are committed to taking all their medications and have a CD4 count below 500 cells/mm3 (which is a sign that of a weakened immune system). Some people, including pregnant women and people with kidney or neurological problems related to HIV, may need treatment regardless of their CD4 count.It is extremely important for people with HIV to take all doses of their medications, otherwise the virus may become resistant to the drugs. Therapy always involves a combination of antiviral drugs. Pregnant women with HIV infection are treated to reduce the chance of transmitting HIV to their babies.People with HIV infection need to become educated about the disease and treatment so that they can be active participants in making decisions with their health care provider.Support GroupsSee: AIDS – support groupExpectations (prognosis)HIV is a chronic medical condition that can be treated, but not yet cured. There are effective ways to prevent complications and delay, but not always prevent, progression to AIDS.Almost all people infected with HIV will develop AIDS if not treated. However, there is a small group of people who develop AIDS very slowly, or never at all. These patients are called long-term nonprogressors.ComplicationsCancersChronic wasting (weight loss) from HIV infectionHIV dementiaHIV lipodystrophyOpportunistic infectionsBacillary angiomatosisCandidiasisCytomegalovirus infectionCryptococcal infectionCryptosporidium enterocolitis (or other protozoal infections)Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infectionPneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (previously called Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia or PCP)Salmonella infection in the bloodstreamToxoplasmosisTuberculosis (in the lungs or spread throughout the body)Viral infection of the brain (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy)Calling your health care provideradvertisementCall your health care provider if you have had a possible or actual exposure to AIDS or HIV infection.PreventionAvoid injecting illicit drugs. If you use injected drugs, avoid sharing needles or syringes. Always use new needles. (Boiling or cleaning them with alcohol does not guarantee that theyre sterile and safe.)Avoid oral, vaginal, or anal contact with semen from HIV-infected people.Avoid unprotected anal intercourse, since it causes small tears in the rectal tissues, through which HIV in an infected partners semen may enter directly into the other partners blood.If you have sex with people who use injected drugs, always use condoms.If you have sex with many people or with people who have multiple partners, always use condoms.People with AIDS or who have had positive HIV antibody tests can pass the disease on to others. They should not donate blood, plasma, body organs, or sperm. They should not exchange genital fluids during sexual activity.Safer sex behaviors may reduce the risk of getting the infection. There is still a slight risk of getting the infection even if you practice “safe sex” by using condoms. Abstinence is the only sure way to prevent sexual transmission of the virus.Use protection when having sexual contact with people you know or suspect of being infected with HIV. Even better, use protection for ALL sexual contact.ReferencesQuinn TC. Epidemiology of human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. In: Goldman L, Schafer AI, eds.

Warren Buffett has a great investment track record. So perhaps it’s no accident that he declined to offer $1 billion for correctly predicting the outcome of all World Cup knockout stage games, as he did for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament games.The odds of winning Buffett’s NCAA challenge were about one in 7.4 billion, assuming you chose the favorite in each game as selected by FiveThirtyEight’s NCAA model. But the odds of correctly filling out a 16-team knockout tournament such as the World Cup are much shorter.In fact, though there have been some thrilling matches in the knockout stage so far — six of 12 have gone to extra time and only two were decided by more than one goal — the favorite has advanced every time (at least as according to the FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup predictions).Here is the breakdown so far. The following table lists the win probability for the FiveThirtyEight favorite as of the day of the match, along with the cumulative probability of the model having called all knockout stages correctly up to that point in time.For instance, the probability of correctly identifying the winners in each of the first four knockout matches — Brazil over Chile, Colombia over Uruguay, the Netherlands over Mexico and Costa Rica over Greece — was about 23 percent, or one chance in 4.3. And the chance of going 12 for 12, as the FiveThirtyEight favorites have done so far, is just one in 75.It’s an upset, in other words, when all the favorites prevail. On average, we’d have expected three or four upsets through this point in the knockout round.Of course, there are four matches left — counting the World Cup’s third-place playoff between the two semifinal losers. According to the FiveThirtyEight forecasts, Brazil is favored over Germany on Tuesday (even after accounting for Neymar’s injury) and Argentina is slightly favored over the Netherlands on Wednesday. To complete a perfect knockout bracket, Germany would then need to beat the Netherlands in the consolation game while Brazil prevailed over Argentina in the final.All of the remaining matches look pretty close, so the FiveThirtyEight forecasts are likely to fail at some stage. If the model gets the matches right, however, it will have made good on a 1-in-553 chance of calling all 16 knockout stage winners correctly.Incidentally, this isn’t the huge success for the FiveThirtyEight model that it might seem. The FiveThirtyEight forecasts are probabilistic. Teams listed as 75 percent favorites are supposed to win about 75 percent of the time over the long run — not much less than that but also not any more often. There are supposed to be some upsets. If 75 percent favorites are winning 100 percent of the time over the long run instead, that means the forecasts are miscalibrated and overestimating the chances for the underdogs.In this case, the success of the favorites does seem to be mostly a matter of luck. Three games have gone to a penalty shootout so far — pre-match favorites might have a slight edge in those but not much of one. Mexico, meanwhile, was a few minutes away from defeating the Netherlands, and the U.S. was a few inches away from beating Belgium.The best way to test probabilistic forecasts is to check their calibration and to compare them against alternative probabilistic estimates. For example, if your model says that the U.S. has a 40 percent chance of beating Belgium and the consensus betting line gives the U.S. just a 25 percent chance instead, you should bet on the Americans — even though you expect Belgium to win most of the time. So far, the FiveThirtyEight forecasts have done well against consensus betting lines when used in this fashion — although that could reflect good luck, too. read more

and "Indo-China Stand-off in Dokalam". I was serving good, Nor must we fatalistically take the good with the bad.

S. at least 2 million Americans are diagnosed with an infection that doesn’t respond to antibiotics and according to conservative estimates 23000 of them will die from their infections The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledges that these figures are likely an underestimate: hospitals are not required by the federal government to report the number of superbugs they encounter and death certificates rarely mention them directly (instead complications from other ailments are often cited) Experts caution that the day is not far off when a paper cut or an ear infection turns lethal Economists predict that by 2050 as many as 10 million people per year will die from drug-resistant infections Tom Patterson and Steffanie Strathdee visit John Willson who received phage therapy in May at the University of California San Diego Jolynn Wilson Brown “This is a crisis” says Ry Young director of the Center for Phage Technology at Texas A&M University which studies phage treatments for superbugs “People are completely unaware of the danger we are in” Indeed the scope of the threat posed by superbugs remains poorly understood by the general population despite the fact that the World Health Organization calls superbugs an imminent threat to human health What’s more there isn’t much hope on the horizon when it comes to new drugs “There are no new antibiotics coming and if they do come bacteria tend to develop resistance to the drugs within a year” says Young The paucity of treatment options is fueling interest in phage which some researchers are calling a critical weapon against the kind of infections that threatened the lives of Mallory Smith and Tom Patterson For now however phage is not widely available in the US Only a handful of people have received it and it requires special clearance because it isn’t yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Before phage can go mainstream the science needs to catch up–which experts are hopeful will happen in 2018 when a number of trials will kick off in the US If the science bears out phage’s promise it would be life altering–and life saving–for the millions of people around the world who contract superbug infections every year Mallory Smith received the therapy at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in November Jacob Jonas Phages are the most ubiquitous bacteria fighters on the planet Scientists estimate that there are over 10 million trillion trillion phages which is more than any other organism in the world Phages work by injecting their DNA into bacteria cells where they rapidly replicate causing bacteria to burst open and die What’s special about phages is that for the most part each strain attacks only a specific kind of bacteria that they’ve evolved to kill which means phages provide a more personalized approach than say broad-spectrum antibiotics which target a wide range of bacteria–even the good kind Despite the elegance of the treatment the Western medical community had all but abandoned it until very recently Discovered by Frederick Twort in England in 1915 and Félix d’Hérelle in France in 1917 (there’s debate about who was truly first) bacteriophages were used in the US and around the world to treat infections throughout the 1920s and ’30s Even back then however the treatment was divisive in the medical world “From the very discovery of phage this field has seen personal attacks disputes of priority massive egos and international politics” wrote Dr William Summers a medical historian at Yale University in a 2012 paper on phage “All of these are part of the rocky history of phage therapy” When mass production of antibiotics took off in the 1940s and ’50s doctors moved away from phage and embraced the drugs Today more than 266 million antibiotic prescriptions are written in the US per year In the last century scientists in Eastern Europe continued to use phage but in the US it fell out of vogue developing a reputation as being an unsafe and clunky treatment Modern phage researchers say that’s because when phage therapy was first used in the US 100 years ago other aspects of science were too poorly understood (This was after all before the discovery of DNA) Still the reputation stuck Today people who want to try phage therapy are required to get what’s called an “emergency investigational new drug” application from the FDA indicating that they are out of other treatment options and are very sick That’s how Strathdee’s husband Tom Patterson was able to try it In late 2015 Strathdee and Patterson a professor of psychiatry at UCSD were celebrating Thanksgiving in Egypt when Patterson became violently ill Diagnosed with pancreatitis Patterson was flown for treatment to Frankfurt where physicians discovered that he was infected with a deadly superbug called Acinetobacter baumannii Patterson was given potent antibiotics and eventually got the green light to travel back home to San Diego Patterson was put under the care of several doctors including his friend Dr Robert “Chip” Schooley a professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases at UCSD “Tom was as sick as he could be” says Schooley “He was either going to die or we were going to come up with something very different” As an infectious-disease expert Strathdee understood the threat of antibiotic-resistant infections all too well She felt helpless watching her husband die so she started researching alternatives A colleague mentioned that a friend of hers had once traveled to Tbilisi Georgia to receive something called “phage therapy” and came back “cured” Strathdee approached Schooley about giving phage a shot Although he wasn’t convinced it would work he agreed With an emergency approval from the FDA Patterson was given a phage cocktail on March 15 2016 and another two days later Three days after that he woke up from his coma “I am still weaker than I was before” says Patterson who is back at work “But I feel I have a new life entirely and it’s wonderful to have that gift” Since Patterson’s success story was announced to the public in April 2017 nearly all the physicians involved in his care receive weekly emails from people whose loved ones are suffering from superbug infections (Strathdee also landed a deal for a book on the subject It’s due in 2019) Experts are hopeful that before too long phage will clear FDA approval making it more widely available to the people who need it most Phage therapy has some unique benefits over antibiotics For one bacteriophages can be found everywhere on earth even in sewage Second it attacks only the targeted bacteria not the so-called good bugs in the host Third it can be done quickly: scientists can create a phage cocktail and provide it to patients within 48 hours of a superbug-infection diagnosis in some cases And even though bacteria can become resistant to phage there are an infinite number of strains of the viruses–not so with antibiotics During Patterson’s treatment the bacteria grew resistant to his initial phages but the doctors were able to tweak the treatment with new strains until he cleared the infection Proponents of phage research say the treatment will never replace antibiotics altogether–for routine infections the drugs will always be more convenient and easier to use But if phage is approved by the FDA it could become a powerful antidote to increasingly common superbug infections For that to happen researchers need to perform clinical trials that produce a better understanding of the basic mechanisms of phage therapy so that successes in one person can be replicated in other people at scale In 2018 two small biotech companies in the US–AmpliPhi Biosciences and Adaptive Phage Therapeutics (APT)–will launch clinical trials that will attempt to answer some of the key questions about phage Bacteriophages which are viruses attack by invading and replicating inside drug-resistant bacteria causing them to explode D Simon Lee—;Getty Images/Science Source “In the future if we can cut the time down phage might be better than antibiotics” says APT founder Dr Carl Merril Merril a former National Institutes of Health scientist came out of retirement at the age of 80 to launch APT in October 2016 Merril has long been an advocate for using phage–he was featured in a 1971 issue of TIME for his work on the viruses–but his research never made it beyond the lab and into human testing Merril says he had long since given up on the possibility that phage therapy would ever become a mainstream treatment That is until Strathdee called him for advice about how to save her husband’s life “This is sort of like a dream” says Merril who advised doctors on how to administer phage to Patterson It was Patterson’s stunning recovery that inspired Merril to start APT “I am very old and I remember what it was like before penicillin” says Merril “I lost a lot of my classmates It could happen again If we don’t deal with antibiotic resistance in real time it will get worse” APT is working on perfecting ways to scan bacteria samples against a massive library of bacteriophages that was collected by the US Navy Using proprietary algorithms that rely on artificial intelligence APT then hopes to be able to quickly match bacterial strains with the phages that might be able to thwart them Merril envisions a time when APT can provide pharmacies with kiosks of phage strains which APT has already trademarked as PhageBanks If his dream comes true then within one hour infection samples would be screened and matched with the appropriate phages which could be dispensed from the kiosks in single-dose vials APT estimates that there’s a $60 billion market opportunity for phage-based treatments Researchers caution that before that happens–before phage is embraced as a standard treatment as opposed to an experimental last resort–there’s a lot of work to be done “It’s unsustainable how we are doing it now” says Texas A&M’s Young who worked on both Tom Patterson’s and Mallory Smith’s cases “Every time we try phage on a new patient it’s automatically a crisis because you have someone who is dying Everyone wants to help but we need a system” Young says he worries that if mistakes are made in the rush to get phage to patients the field could end up in “we told you so” territory “People should understand that an old therapy is back” he says “But it’s not yet commercially exploitable” Since treating Patterson in 2016 the medical team at UCSD has treated three other people using phage and two appear to be doing well “Thank God for Steffanie” says Josephine Willson whose husband John was treated with phage at UCSD in May after contracting a resistant Pseudomonas infection “If she didn’t fight for her husband I wouldn’t have mine here today” Josephine says her experience with her husband’s infection which he’d been fighting for over six months before receiving phage therapy has woken her up to the ever growing threat of superbugs “All I knew was that overuse of antibiotics could be detrimental at some point in time” she says “I did not know we are already at a point where antibiotics cannot kill a bacteria you have I did not know that” Schooley who now travels across the US educating medical groups about phage says tackling the superbug problem will require more education as well as better use of antibiotics and new therapies “We need to use antibiotics intelligently” says Schooley “But even if we stop using every antibiotic there is there will still be multidrug-resistant organisms We need to minimize their ongoing evolution by using antibiotics appropriately in the hospital and in agriculture–and we also need to think about novel approaches to head off these superbugs” Many scientists have renewed hope that phage will be one of those solutions “An international community has been galvanized” says Strathdee “We need to keep up the momentum” Mallory Smith’s parents also want to help phage research continue so that it may one day help other people–even though it couldn’t save their daughter By the time the phages made their way to Mallory in Pittsburgh it was too late She started the therapy but died the next day “We were two days short” Strathdee says “Mallory’s case symbolizes so much” Contact us at editors@timecom This appears in the December 25
