You don’t have to look far to hear about brilliant and exciting strides being made in medical science. 3D printing is being used to create artificial limbs and organs; diabetics can now control their condition with the artificial pancreas; news has broken in 2015 about revolutionary new treatments which provide hope for patients with skin cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. These outstanding breakthroughs are in fact part of a much bigger picture – our attitudes towards health, and our understanding of even relatively minor ailments like indigestion, headaches and insomnia have come on in leaps and bounds because of ongoing Clinical Trials like the ones carried out at Covance in Leeds. Perhaps treatments for period pain or body odour don’t grab the most front-page headlines, but a look at how medicines have been advertised over the last hundred years speaks volumes about just how far we’ve come and these 10 healthcare adverts illustrate that beautifully… 1 – La-Mar Reducing Soap A soap bar which washes away fat!? A dream come true, or too good to be true? (The global obesity epidemic suggests the latter!). In this brazen advert,  La-Mar Laboratories confidently assert that this product works ‘like magic’ to produce results which are ‘quick and amazing’, even statin...

by Christian Sinclair (@ctsinclair)We used to publish a lot more article reviews here on Pallimed. Sometimes the analysis would be quite deep and sometimes we would just lump together a while bunch of snippets from key articles. I have been keeping an ever-growing list of articles I would love to write up for the site*, but never seemed to have the time to get to them, and then new ones would come out, that I would want to write about, but they too would just get added to the list. At the end of the year, I would look back on key articles for our field and be pretty bummed out that I never got anything published here about...

This study determined if there are observable patient-, tooth- and crack-level characteristics markedly associated with whether a tooth with an external crack also has an internal crack. METHODS: Two hundred nine dentists in The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network enrolled 2,858 adults with a vital permanent posterior tooth having at least 1 observed external crack. Presence and characteristics of internal cracks were recorded for 435 cracked teeth that were treated. Generalized estimating equations were used to identify significant (P

The idea that lifestyle changes have made the disease more common is a gross exaggeration – but increasingly prevalent. We separate fact from fictionCancer is not up there withthe most likely explanations for what caused the mass extinction 66m years ago of the T rex and the triceratops.
