Abstract

The patient's choice of a contraceptive method is seemingly influenced by six factors: (a) her attitude toward contraception, (b) the physician's choice, (c) her assessment of risk, (d) her motivation and compliance for reliable contraception, (e) her previous experience with contraception and (f) her partner's influence. Recommendations are made for dealing with three groups of patients who present particular problems: (a) the patient who insists on the pill despite the contraindications for her emphasized by the physician; (b) the patient on the pill who is aging; and (c) the patient or couple who chooses tubal ligation at whatever age and regardless of the number of children she has borne.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Computational Methods for Protein Structures

Computational methods employing machine learning algorithms are powerful tools that can be used to predict the effect of mutations on protein structure. This is important in neurodegenerative disorders, where some mutations can cause the formation of toxic protein aggregations. This feed follows the latests insights into the relationships between mutation and protein structure leading to better understanding of disease.
