"It's A Scandal" -Daryl Hall on Doctors Denying Chronic Lyme

Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it. With six number ones and five additional top ten hits throughout the 70's and 80's Daryl Hall and John Oates are the number one duo in music history. Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed by eleven NYC doctors, I was homebound and in heart failure. On one of those terrifying, bleary days I caught the last half of a Dan Rather interview with Daryl. Near the end, Rather asked, "What's the worst thing that's ever happened to you?" Daryl exhaled, "Getting Lyme Disease is no fun, I'll tell you that right now." "I have to speak with him," I thought. "He looks so good! I need to know how he got better." So, here is my conversation with Daryl and with Dr. Richard Horowitz, Daryl's esteemed Lyme specialist, Board Certified Internist and Director of the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center, in Hyde Park, New York, and New York Times best-selling author of Why Can't I Get Better. His forthcoming book, How Can I Get Better, will be out later this year. Daryl, thank you for going on the record; many celebrities d...

Authors: Ye MB, Chen YL, Wang Q, An J, Ye F, Jing P Abstract OBJECTIVES: Stroke is a common condition after a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or minor ischemic stroke (IS). Adding clopidogrel to aspirin may yield more beneficial outcomes than aspirin mono-therapy; meanwhile, the risk of bleeding in the acute phase remains poorly understood. Therefore, there is increasing emphasis on the risks and benefits of clopidogrel with aspirin compared with aspirin mono-therapy in an effort to treat TIA/IS. DESIGN: We searched several electronic databases, including PubMed, Cochrane, and Embase, to identify eligible rando...

CONCLUSION: Arterial hypertension and elevated diastolic blood pressure are associated with a risk for AS requiring surgery in subjects below 60 years of age. Strict blood pressure control in this group is strongly advocated to avoid other cardiovascular diseases correlated to hypertension. If hypertension and elevated diastolic blood pressure are risk factors for developing AS requiring surgery need further investigations. Notably, elevated fasting glucose levels were related to AS requiring surgery in older adults without concomitant CAD. PMID: 31109205 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Trivino A, Gumireddy A, Meng F, Prasad D, Chauhan H Abstract The major goal of this research was to successfully formulate solid dispersion (SD) of the poorly soluble anticancer drug flutamide (FLT) using various hydrophilic polymers. Furthermore, to get more insight into SD, solid-state studies (miscibility and molecular interaction) were correlated with solution study (precipitation inhibition, dissolution). Hydrophilic polymers like PVP K90, HPMC, Eudragit EPO, and PEG 8000 were used at different drug-to-polymer w/w ratios. Solid-state miscibility studies were carried out using modulated differential sc...

Management of severe elbow arthritis in young or active patients presents a challenging problem. Interposition arthroplasty is a useful salvage procedure for these patients but has a significant failure rate associated with postoperative instability. Previous studies have sought to preserve the integrity of the medial elbow ligament complex to decrease postoperative instability and the need for external fixation. Our lateral epicondylar osteotomy technique preserves the native lateral elbow ligament complex. Potential advantages include bone-to-bone healing of the osteotomy, decreased postoperative instability, and the dec...

Ulnar-sided carpometacarpal (CMC) joint fracture dislocations are relatively uncommon, frequently associated with fractures of the metacarpal base and/or hamate, and often sustained by young male individuals secondary to striking a hard object. The complexity of ulnar-sided CMC fracture dislocations necessitates careful restitution of anatomic alignment and joint congruency for mobility and stability. Miniaturization of the external fixation device has allowed application to the hand. Spanning external fixation utilizes the principles of “ligamentotaxis”—indirect reduction through distraction forces of ca...

CONCLUSIONS: Current literature show similar risks for bacterial pathogens. Studies are limited for viral and parasitic pathogens. The evaluated risk-factors for PI-IBS varied among the included studies and the existing evidence is insufficient to identify pathogen-specific risk factors.

Hello everyone, I was fortunate enough to be accepted into dental school this upcoming summer. However, my senior year of high school I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and placed on intense medications. My rheumatologist says that my arthritis is on a mild scale and the medication makes me feel like I don't even have arthritis (except for a few occasional flare ups). I was curious if anyone has any advice going into dentistry with arthritis or if they know anyone with a similar... Advice For Dentistry With Arthritis

Authors: Perugi G, Pallucchini A, Rizzato S, Pinzone V, De Rossi P Abstract INTRODUCTION: ADHD is characterized by a developmentally inappropriate level of inattentiveness, impulsivity and/or hyperactivity. In adults, the disorder is frequently accompanied by Emotional Dysregulation (ED), associated to a variety of related psychiatric comorbidities, complicating its recognition and treatment management. Areas covered: This paper reviews randomized active comparator-controlled or placebo-controlled trials evaluating the use of pharmacotherapy in adults with ADHD and ED, other neurodevelopmental disorders, Bipolar Di...

So my MCAT was logged in for May 31st, but my genius self decided to play basketball yesterday and rolled my ankle yesterday. I have a fracture in the tarsal dome and my ankle is bruised up and swollen like a ball so I'm guessing ligament damage as well. I am in a lot of pain and can't even concentrate on studying because of my foot, I was thinking of moving my test to June 15th just to give me time to readjust. Would this be to late for the cycle? Any help appreciated!!
