Background: HIV and non-communicable disease (NCD) are syndemic within sub-Saharan Africa especially among older persons. The two epidemics interact with one another within a context of poverty, inequality and inequitable access to healthcare resulting in an increase in those aged 50 and older living with HIV and experiencing an NCD co-morbidity. We explore the challenges of navigating healthcare for older persons living with HIV and NCD co-morbidity. Read More

Most current Ebola virus (EBOV) vaccine candidates are based on viral vectors, some of which cause side effects or require complex manufacturing. Modified mRNA vaccines are easily produced, safe, and are highly immunogenic. We developed 2 mRNA vaccines based on the EBOV envelope glycoprotein, which differed by the nature of signal peptide for improved glycoprotein post-translational translocation. Read More

Inositol (1,4,5)-trisphosphate receptors (IP(3)Rs) release intracellular Ca(2+) as localized Ca(2+) signals (Ca(2+) puffs) that represent the activity of small numbers of clustered IP(3)Rs spaced throughout the endoplasmic reticulum. Although much emphasis has been placed on estimating the number of active Ca(2+) release channels supporting Ca(2+) puffs, less attention has been placed on understanding the role of cluster microarchitecture. This is important as recent data underscores the dynamic nature of IP(3)R transitions between heterogeneous cellular architectures and the differential behavior of IP(3)Rs socialized into clusters.

We present a case where the chronically occluded right coronary artery fed retrograde the acutely occluded left anterior descending artery. The "late-late" filling of the target vessel served as a good guide for the recanalisation procedure. Read More
