    Hoboken, NJ (April 2017)—When some people hear the words positive leadership they roll their eyes. That’s because they immediately think “Pollyanna positive,” where life is full of unicorns and rainbows. But best-selling author and keynote speaker Jon Gordon says the truth about real positivity is quite the opposite: Great leaders are not positive because life is easy; they are positive because life can be hard.“As a leader, you will face numerous obstacles, negativity, and tests,” says Gordon...

    Infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) can lead to cirrhosis as well as liver cancer. A Hepatology study from Taiwan has found that statins may provide benefits to patients with HBV- or HCV-related cirrhosis.When the liver fails to compensate for the functional overload resulting from disease, a situation called decompensation occurs. Decompensation significantly lowers the survival rate among patients with cirrhosis, and very few effective drugs are available. This...

    An analysis of published studies indicates that the antiviral drug tenofovir given to pregnant women in the second or third trimester can help prevent mother to child transmission of the hepatitis B virus (HBV).Universal vaccination of newborn babies has brought transmission rates down to 10-30%.

Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the study suggests that screening policies may need to be tailored to the higher-risk status of this population.Among black men in the United States, the incidence...
