Russia says U.S. presence in Syria illegal, protects oil smugglers

Russia says U.S. presence in Syria illegal, protects oil smugglersRussia’s defense ministry on Saturday attacked U.S. plans to maintain and boost the American military presence in eastern Syria as “international state banditry” motivated by a desire to protect oil smugglers and not by real security concerns. U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Friday Washington would send armored vehicles and troops to the Syrian oil fields in order to prevent them from falling into the hands of Islamic State militants.

Congress’ spending bill protects medical pot states

Congress’ spending bill protects medical pot statesCongress extended protections to 44 states that have legalized medical marijuana in its proposed $ 1 trillion spending bill that funds the government through September. This amendment, championed by former Reps. Maurice Hinchey, D-N.Y., Sam Farr, D-Calif., and current Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., more than 10 years ago, finally became law in 2014 as part of the omnibus bill that funded fiscal year 2015. It was unclear if it would be included again this year, given the Trump administration’s harsher tone on legal marijuana.

Study finds anti-AIDS vaginal ring partially protects women

This photo provided by the International Partnership for Microbicides shows a ring that is coated with an anti-AIDS drug designed for women to insert into the vagina once a month to reduce the risk of HIV infection. Researchers say women who inserted a vaginal ring coated with an anti-AIDS drug once a month were partially protected against HIV infection. Two large studies in Africa found the effect was modest, reducing overall HIV infection by about a third. But surprisingly, the ring worked far better in women 25 and older, leaving researchers wondering if younger women who got little to no benefit simply didn’t use the device properly. (Andrew Loxley/International Partnership for Microbicides via AP)WASHINGTON (AP) — In a new approach to HIV prevention, women modestly reduced their risk of infection by inserting a vaginal ring coated with an anti-AIDS drug once a month, according to two long-awaited studies from Africa.

Pill protects against HIV in real-world settings

By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) – A once-a-day pill for preventing infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, has been effective in clinical trials, and new research suggests that it works in the real world, too. In a study conducted at sexual health clinics, participants taking the pills for so-called preexposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, had only two new HIV infections, although their rates of other sexually transmitted infections and condomless sex remained high, researchers found. “There were a number of clinical trials that looked at PrEP and showed it to be safe and effective in that research setting, but there was little information on how PrEP would be implemented outside of those research trials,” said lead author Dr. Albert Liu, of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

Experimental gel partially protects against genital herpes

By Gene Emery (Reuters Health) – An experimental vaginal gel containing a drug used to treat the AIDS virus could prevent half of cases of genital herpes, according to a study done in South Africa. Among women who used tenofovir gel, the annual rate of infection with the genital herpes virus, known as herpes simplex virus type 2 or HSV-2, was 10.2 percent versus a rate of 21 percent for women who used a placebo gel. If the gel were to be approved and manufactured, and “if a woman was concerned about acquiring herpes simplex virus type 2, this would be the best protection available,” chief author Dr. Salim Abdool Karim of the Centre for the AIDS Program of Research in South Africa told Reuters Health.
