Herd immunity is an important defense against outbreaks and has shown success in regions with good vaccination rates, but even small deviations from protective levels can allow for significant outbreaks due to local clusters of susceptibility. Vaccines must be effective and vaccination programs must be broadly adopted to protect populations. https://ja.ma/3nSFyAC

Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology: The incidence of early-onset colorectal cancer (CRC) is increasing worldwide for reasons that are currently unclear. Herein, the authors review the current epidemiological, clinical, pathological and molecular understanding of early-onset CRC that occurs in patients ≥50 years of age, drawing contrasts with later-onset CRC. They also discuss future research strategies for improved understanding, prevention, early detection and clinical management of early-onset CRC.

Nature Reviews Urology: Many aspects of human male reproduction can be modulated by cannabinoids and endocannabinoids (eCBs). Preclinical studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is involved in negative modulation of testosterone secretion, but the effect of in vivo exposure to cannabinoids on spermatogenesis remains a matter of debate. An improved understanding of the complex crosstalk between cannabinoids and eCBs might enable targeting of the ECS for modulation of human fertility. (£)

The role of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation for sickle cell disease in the era of targeted disease-modifying therapies and gene editing | The Lancet Haematology Sickle cell disease is one of the most common, life-threatening, non-communicable diseases in the world and a major public health problem. Following the implementation of simple preventive and therapeutic modalities, infant mortality has almost been abolished in high-income countries, but only a small amount of progress has been made in improving survival in adulthood. Progressive end-organ damage, partly related to a systemic vasculopathy, is increasingly recognised. With the availability of a variety of novel disease-modifying drugs, gene addition and gene editing strategies, matched sibling donor haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in children (offering an overall survival rate of 95% and an event-free survival rate of 92%), and encouraging outcomes after alternative donor HSCT, the new challenge is to risk stratify patients, revise transplantation indications, and define the best therapeutic approach for each patient. The ultimate challenge will be to enable these advances in low-income and middle-income countries, where disease prevalence is highest and where innovative strategies are most needed.
