What 1989 And The Golden Girls Tell Us About Medicine Today

Today, 1989 may be most associated with Taylor Swift: It is the album that won her a second Grammy for Album of the Year. Not only that, it happens to be the year Swift was born--such a long, long time ago! People under 35 have no personal memory of 1980s pop culture, which is ironic since Swift's album in part pays homage to it. In the real 1989 (no offense to Swift and the 10 co-producers who made the album), all sorts of revolutions took place: Mr. Gorbachev tore down that pesky wall, for example. America's greatest antagonist, the Soviet Union, collapsed in 1989. Brazil conducted its first democratic presidential election since 1960. And so on. Today, it's hard to say whether America's greatest existential threat may be Vladimir Putin or his Number-One American Fan, Donald Trump. If the CDC is to be believed, it's the Zika virus. Two years ago (2014, the year Swift's 1989 came out), the CDC was most concerned about Ebola, to the extent that the U.S. public health agency was criticized for "roughing up" humanitarian aid workers who had helped to treat those with Ebola who were suffering abroad. Way back in the early 80s, the CDC was criticized for doing too little about the emerging and little-understood AIDS crisis: Specifically, in 1982, the CDC cautioned the public that four groups of people had to worry about developing AIDS: homosexual or bisexual men, IV drug users, people with hemophilia, and Haitian people.

Authors: Peñailillo L, Mackay K, Abbiss CR Abstract Despite the terms often being used interchangeably it has been suggested that perceptions of effort and perceptions of exertion may differ. Eccentric cycling may provide a model of exercise by which differences between these perceptions can be examined. PURPOSE: of this study was to examine and compare perceptions of effort and exertion during eccentric and concentric cycling at four intensities. METHODS: Ten healthy male participants (mean ± SD; age: 29.8 ± 2.3 y) performed an incremental cycling test for the determination of maximal ...

CONCLUSION: Pooled results from 5 studies with low risk of bias showed low-quality evidence for small to moderate beneficial effects of exercise on hand pain, function, and finger joint stiffness postintervention. Estimated effect sizes were small, and whether they represent a clinically important change may be debated. PMID: 29032354 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: The findings suggest beneficial effects of dietary bioactive compounds such as SFN and EGCG and their effect on BC cells by restoring estrogen receptor gene expression, modulating epigenetic changes and events, and interfering with tumor growth rate. Publication bias limits the generalizability of the conclusions. High-quality studies are needed.J Nutrigenet Nutrigenomics 2017;10:126-135

Authors: Lowey SE Abstract Globally, there are 18-million individuals living with heart failure, a disease that is responsible for 12-15 million office visits and 6.5 million inpatient hospitalizations each year. As HF becomes advanced or end-stage, patients often live in a cycle of frequent transitions between care settings, and with unmet needs, including distress from inadequately managed symptoms. Prognostication in patients with heart failure can be challenging due to the unpredictable exacerbating-remitting illness trajectory that is associated with this progressive disease. Recurrent hospitalizatio...

In conclusion a hypothetic model for the implication of actual findings in everyday clinical practice is proposed. In this context personalized treatment could be used to tailor treatment to specific individuals according to their clinical endophenotypes. Moreover a potential target for the development of novel intervention strategies might be used.Neurosignals 2017;25:54 –73
