ABSTRACT
The article presents news briefs related to medical research. The study conducted by the U.S. researchers shows that a history of stroke is connected with gradual memory loss. A trial in U.S. revealed that a new cervical cancer vaccine offers a high degree of long-term protection. A Swedish study suggests that patients with coeliac disease have increased risk of chronic renal disease.
