Knut the polar bear may have met an early end but he wasn’t forgotten. The cute polar bear cub born at Berlin Zoo in 2006 and controversially reared by zookeepers, drowned as an adult after experiencing epileptic seizures. Now, the condition responsible for his death has been identified.
The cause of the seizures was unknown since no bacteria, virus or parasite could be found to explain the underlying brain inflammation. The mystery was finally solved by Harald Pruess from the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Berlin and his team, who normally study dementia in people.
They analysed samples of Knut’s cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes the brain and spinal cord, and found high levels of an antibody known to attack a glutamate receptor in the brain. In humans, this is a sign of a disease called autoimmune encephalitis. Knut’s case is the first ever reported in a non-human.

Although global efforts in the past decade have halved the number of deaths due to malaria, there are still an estimated 219 million cases of malaria a year, causing more than half a million deaths.

Their collective views highlight the challenges and opportunities, and explain how multi-factorial and integrated processes could eventually make malaria eradication a reality.

Si a uno le nombran un "Hospital Clínico Virtual" quizás nos imaginemos algo futurista. Cuando uno entra a la casa matriz de AccuHealth, la recepción y la sala de reuniones no son diferentes a cualquier oficina de la zona oriente de Santiago de Chile, pero al viajar un poco más al fondo del pasillo se adivierten colores que podrían evocar a una clínica y, más adelante, circulan profesionales de la salud enfundados en sus batas corporativas, tal como si trabajaran en contacto directo con los paci
