Background: Empirical, updated country-level estimates on the proportion of cirrhosis attributable to viral hepatitis are required. We estimated the prevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in patients with cirrhosis at country, regional, and global levels as an approximation for the fractions of cirrhosis attributable to viral hepatitis. Methods: In this systematic review, we searched MEDLINE, Embase, Web of Science, and Scielo between Jan 1, 1993, and Aug 1, 2021.

Effects of aging on nitric oxide bioavailability, physiological function, and exercise performance.
Worldwide, individuals are living longer. This population aging is associated with an anticipated increase in the burden of the leading causes of death in modern societies — chronic, degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular, kidney and Alzheimer's disease — which is largely driven by age-related declines in physiological function. Engaging in healthy lifestyle practices that preserve physiological function with age has important implications for reducing the risk of morbidity and mortality and preserving healthspan — the period of an individual's life when one is generally healthy and devoid of serious chronic disorders. In this regard, regular exercise and physical activity are considered key “first line” strategies for healthy aging.
The United Nations General Assembly decided that International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples would be observed every year on 9th August. On this day, people from around the world are encouraged to help spread the UN’s message on the protection and promotion of the rights of indigenous peoples. Elsevier is pleased to share this special collection of freely available articles to help spread awareness about this important topic. Please feel free to download and share these papers.
PPI network analysis of potential targets of trans-UCA involved in spatial memory. (A) PPI network based on STRING database showed 39 potential targets. (B) PPI network based on Cytoscape 3.7.2 software showed 39 potential targets.
The results of this study suggest that trans-UCA facilitates spatial memory in the Y-maze test and OLR task and may offer therapeutic potential for Alzheimer's disease (AD).

This research provides the first evidence of AD-related Aβ pathology outside the brain. Lens Aβ can be noninvasively measured in vivo for early AD detection and monitoring.
These dashboards present data from the World Development Indicators (WDI) that help to monitor the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Each year, World Hepatitis Day is observed on 28 July to raise awareness of viral hepatitis, which causes inflammation of the liver that leads to severe disease and liver cancer. Elsevier is proud to present a freely available special collection of journal articles and book chapters highlighting hepatitis research.
