Screening for NAFLD in primary care: a preventative wonder or are we barking up the wrong tree?

The burden of chronic liver disease has a substantial health and economic burden within the UK. Chronic liver disease is the fifth most common cause of death in the UK and of those five, it is the only one with numbers that are rising. With this in mind, it would make sense that earlier detection of liver disease in primary care is key to improving outcomes and reducing costs.

Vertically transmitted endophyte improved plant-rhizobacteria interaction

Plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) have been identified as potential biofertilizers, eco-friendly, renewable and have been demonstrated to actively restore soil fertility. Beyond this, they have been shown to be a promising biological resource to augment chemical fertilizer, and drastically reduce its application and subsequent negative effects.
