What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

New screening pathway could help to identify a rare, single-gene form of diabetes NIHR DC | Signal - New screening pathway could help to identify a rare, single-gene form of diabetes Dissemination Centre Discover Portal NIHR DC Discover New screening pathway could help to identify a rare, single-gene form of diabetes Published on 23 January 2018 A screening pathway using blood and urine tests followed by two genetic (DNA) tests identified all people with a rare subtype of diabetes called (...) monogenic diabetes. The screening pathway performed better than current practice based on age at diagnosis and family history which misses 63%. It is, therefore, a useful approach for ruling out this form of diabetes and probably cheaper overall than offering every young person with diabetes DNA testing. Monogenic diabetes, caused by a mutation in a single gene can be misdiagnosed as type 1 diabetes, leading to unnecessary insulin treatment. Those recruited for this study were 98% white and tested

Surprisingly, financial incentives may even reduce the numbers of people attending screening. Retinopathy is a type of eye disease common to people with diabetes.

This trial examined the effectiveness of a small fixed fee incentive and a lottery incentive compared to an invitation letter. Contrary to expectation

In this approach, first, environmental DNA is cloned (...) to generate metagenomic libraries that are maintained in Escherichia coli, and second, the cloned DNA is screened for activities of interest. Typically, functional screens are carried out using E. coli as a surrogate host, although there likely exist barriers to gene expression, such as lack of recognition of native promoters. Here, we describe efforts to develop Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron as a surrogate host for screening metagenomic DNA from the human gut. We construct a B. thetaiotaomicron-compatible

Syphilis is sometimes hard to identify, and so it is important to screen and treat the sexual partners of infected persons to prevent transmission. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a treponema bacterium. During the year following the onset of infection, syphilis, which is contagious, is said to be early and comprises several clinical stages: primary syphilis (development of a chancre, not always visible depending on its location); secondary syphilis (skin rash); and early latent
