Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:41:33 +0100 | TIME: Top Science and Health Stories
California does not often make common cause with Mississippi and West Virginia. America’s blue-red divide doesn’t come any wider than it does between the liberal laboratory of the Pacific West and the conservative cornerstones of the old south. But with a single signature on a single bill, California Gov. Jerry Brown could ensure that the largest state in the nation joins the two far smaller ones in what ought to be a simple, primal mission: keeping children healthy.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 19:39:10 +0100 | Healthy Living - The Huffington Post
ICYMI Health features what we're reading this week. This week, first-person essays by individuals affected by stigmatized diseases and disorders caught our eye. We spent time with the account of a writer struggling with chronic kidney damage from the lithium she has used to manage her bipolar disorder for 20 years. We had our hearts broken reading about a sister who had to pick up the pieces after her talented sibling died of a drug overdose. And we tuned in when a handful of a celebrities described how it feels to have a panic attack -- a good reminder that anxiety can affect anyone, regardless of life circumstances.

Alginate microbead-encapsulated silver complexes for selective delivery of broad-spectrum silver-based microbicides
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents

Currently there is no effective vaccine against HIV and therefore the use of topical microbicides for the prevention of viral entry at the cervico-vaginal surface is an important alternative means of preventing HIV infection via vaginal intercourse . Sub-Saharan Africa also has the highest rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) per capita worldwide and the contribution of STIs to HIV transmission remains high in this region, with 50% or more of HIV transmission attributed to STIs [3,4].
