Published in the prestigious Nature journal, Molecular Psychiatry, the study tested a number of HIV ‘cure agents’ and found the two most promising of those, panobinostat and romidepsin, might not work effectively within the brain.
Publication: Cost effectiveness of chlamydia screening for pregnant women aged 16-25 years attending an antenatal service
Using clinical data from a previous study, and outcomes data from the literature, the authors modelled the short-term perinatal (12-month time horizon) incremental direct costs and outcomes from a government (as the primary third-party funder) perspective for chlamydia screening. Costs were derived from the Medicare Benefits Schedule, Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, and average cost-weights reported for hospitalisations classified according to the Australian refined diagnosis-related groups.

The SAGE pilot, an initiative by the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), is the first Australian trial of the Athena SWAN gender equity accreditation program.
The program is an evaluation and accreditation framework to help institutions improve their gender equity practices and gender representation and retention in science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM) disciplines.
Dr Bernadette Fitzgibbon (MAPrc neuroscientist) was interviewed together with Professor Nalini Joshi (applied mathematician) by ABC Radio on the initiative. See: www.abc.net.au/am/content/2015/s4313205.htm
