Treatment with tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) was found to be effective in reducing the occurrence of liver cancer and disease progression in patients with chronic hepatitis B. The treatment also achieved significant viral suppression and improvement in liver fibrosis. This offers hope for individuals with chronic hepatitis B who are at risk of developing liver cancer.
Several studies of adult-onset multiple sclerosis (AOMS) patients have demonstrated that spinal cord volume loss is associated with disease progression and clinical disability; however, complementary studies of young patients with pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis (POMS) are lacking. In the context of SDG Goal 3, this retrospective study aimed to assess spinal cord volume in POMS patients compared with that in healthy controls.
People with any disabilities accounted for a quarter of total deaths. People with disabilities had higher average ages and poor economic conditions. All disability types presented higher mortality rates and lower life expectancy. The major causes of death differed according to the type of disability.
Recommends ways to maximise potential of autonomous vehicles to improve accessibility for disabled persons.
