    Monash researchers are checking 
    out ingredients of the Mediterranean 
    by Anne Crawford

    The Mediterranean diet is one of the most researched, published and consumed diets on the planet. It’s been associated with health benefits that include delaying Alzheimer’s disease, better heart health, helping to fight certain cancers and reducing our risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But no one is completely sure why.

    Mounting epidemiological, clinical and experimental evidence have all pointed to the biological benefits of the diet but the chemical compounds responsible for them remain elusive. Monash scientists are investigating.

    More IV fluids during surgery is beneficial: RELIEF study

    Professor Paul Myles, lead researcher of
    the RELIEF study: more IV fluid is good
    A global study led by Monash University and The Alfred has found giving patients more IV fluids during surgery can reduce the risk of kidney damage and wound infection post-surgery, solving a decades-old debate.

    More than 300 million people worldwide undergo major surgery each year, and anaesthetists have fiercely debated whether to give patients more or less IV fluids during surgery and in the days following. Intravenous (IV) fluids – a “saline drip” – are given to patients to counteract extended periods of not being able to drink or eat before and after surgery, and also to restore the circulation if there is excessive bleeding.

    Participants sought: Treating the male partners of women with bacterial vaginosis

    may reduce reinfection rates. Image: MSHC
    Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a common vaginal condition among women which often comes back even after antibiotic treatment.

    Some of the bacteria associated with BV are present on the genitals of male partners of women with BV. We believe that reinfection from sexual partners may be contributing to the high rates of women getting BV again.
