Heatwaves increase hospital admissions: What happened at The Alfred Hospital in 2009

In January 2009, Melbourne experienced a heatwave of three consecutive days above 43°C and six consecutive minimum temperatures above 20°C. During this time The Alfred Hospital "experienced an acute increase in [Emergency Department] presentations and a near-doubling of general medical admissions". The authors conclude that, as "heatwaves become more likely, we must be prepared to respond proactively in the community ... and reactively in hospitals".  Article: http://ow.ly/rU8hK

"Treatment as Prevention" - Australian doctors surveyed on care for HIV+ patients

A study exploring Australian prescribers' attitudes towards Treatment as Prevention (TasP) and their practices around initiating combination antiretroviral treatment (cART) for HIV has been recently published by Department of Infectious Diseases researchers. TasP is a strategy to reduce the level of virus in an infected individual, and thereby reduce risk of transmission to others. Australian GPs and physicians focus primarily on clinical benefit to individual patients rather than any population benefit. Virus load at which cART was initiated also varied.

Head injury prevention for bicyclists: Helmets make a difference

Helmets are still vital to the safety of cyclists according to an article recently published in the Medical Journal of Australia. Peter A Cameron (Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine), Frank McDermott (Department of Surgery) and Jeffrey V Rosenfeld (Department of Surgery) write that with the increase of cyclists on the road, helmets are becoming more and more important.

MAPrc leads world's largest research study in Body Dysmorphic Disorder

When people think of mental illness related to body image, the first thing that usually comes to mind is anorexia or associated eating disorders. However, it is the lesser known body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) that is five times more prevalent than anorexia and also causes higher levels of psychological impairment. In the largest neuroimaging research on this disorder in the world, Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre's Doctor of Psychology candidate Ben Buchanan’s findings have been published this month in the prestigious journal Psychological Medicine.

Sarah Charnaud: Central Clinical School PhD student profile

See video: 40 sec
Sarah Charnaud is a Research Assistant and a Central Clinical School PhD student based at the Burnet Institute, researching Malaria. Sarah's research is focused on understanding the Malaria parasite and how it survives inside the human body. It invades red blood cells, where disease happens. Her research is particularly focussed on a previously unknown protein which is produced by the parasite and exported into the red blood cell itself.  See Sarah's profile: http://www.med.monash.edu/cecs/education/profiles/charnaud.html and video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-tNO321GXU (Note, low sound so you'll need to turn up the volume to hear it.)

Social media for scientists - is it worth the bother?

What is social media good for? For scientists, that is. A PLOS Biology article says, "...scientists are increasingly using social media as a way to share journal articles, advertise their thoughts and scientific opinions, post updates from conferences and meetings, and circulate information about professional opportunities and upcoming events." The metrics, for all the caveats, indicate that if you tell people about your work, they look at it and are more likely to cite it. See:

Healthy volunteers needed for brain research: MAPrc

At the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc), we do a number of human studies where we explore how the brain works, and how we can make it work better in people who experience mental illness. This means that we are always in need of healthy volunteers to act as “control” participants. This may mean we are looking for volunteers to come into our centre and carry out behavioural or computerised tasks, or have a brain scan or undergo one of several brain stimulation techniques.

    Monash study identifies factors underlying ineffective response to HIV treatment

    Professor Jennifer Hoy
    A new study has looked at the factors which may decrease the chances of HIV treatment being successful. Patients with HIV are treated with antiretroviral therapy (ART), which has proven effective at improving their long-term outcomes and survival. The study, by A/Prof Allen Cheng, Dr Olga Vujovic and Prof Jennifer Hoy with the Monash Department of Infectious Diseases, aimed to discover the factors which lead to virological failure.

    "Beat the Bloat: IBS & the low FODMAP diet" 2013 CCS Public Lecture packed out

    Peter Gibson in conversation
    Professor Peter Gibson, HOD Gastroenterology, gave Central Clinical School's public lecture on 30 October 2013 on "Beating the Bloat: Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the low FODMAP diet". The event attracted a large audience. In brief, research shows that once the low FODMAP diet is followed for a certain period, symptoms will settle down for a high proportion of people, and there can be a careful reintroduction of higher FODMAP foods to ensure good nutrition including micronutrients.

    Studying the causes of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia: £200,000 research grant from AICR

    Professor Fabienne Mackay’s laboratory has received a generous £200,000 grant from the prestigious Association for International Cancer Research (AICR) to study the causes of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and potential new therapeutic strategies. CLL is the most common adult leukaemia in the developed world and still has no cure. Affected patients have severely compromised immunity, leaving them vulnerable to recurrent infections, which are a major cause of death. The underlying cause of CLL remains elusive, limiting current treatment options.

    Lancet review: The end of AIDS:HIV infection as a chronic disease

    Professor Sharon Lewin
     HIV infection is now no longer a death sentence, as antiretroviral (ART) treatment will hold the disease in check. However, the disease is not cured. ART must be taken for life as HIV is latent and may 'awaken' any time without ART. HIV-infected individuals have a higher risk of developing non-AIDS disorders, including chronic cardiovascular, kidney, liver, cancer and some neurological illnesses. Profs Steven Deeks, Sharon Lewin (HOD Department of Infectious Diseases) and Diane Havlir outline the issues in their Lancet review article.
