Niacin, Heart Disease And The Fallacy That All Older Drugs Are Safe And Effective

The bottom line is that no drug is perfect; all have side-effects. There is no guarantee that either the age or newness of a drug will confer better safety or efficacy. One thing you can be certain of, however, is that drugs approved today have been studied in greater depth than ever before.

Tiffany Grant, PhD, Assistant Director for Research and Informatics at the University of Cincinnati Health Sciences Library, applied and received a GMR award for a community partnership to improve health literacy and address health disparities. Project Background: Racial and ethnic minorities, those in rural and/or urban areas, and those living in medically underserved areas are at high risk for health-related disparities. Low-income wages, reduced government services, and low educational attainment are a few reasons why these population groups have significant barriers overcoming food insecurity, obesity, mental health is...

Why is it that despite so many interesting foods in the world, we sometimes fall into dietary rut? For busy working families, lapsing into a boring menu routine may be due to a lack of time, planning, or know-how. Years ago, when I anchored the local TV news at dinnertime, my husband Jay made noodles with takeout meatballs so often that our three kids (even the baby) would tease him about it. “I didn’t know how to cook and I didn’t give much thought to dinner until everybody was hungry,” remembers Jay, my prince who would work all day, pick up the kids, and feed them before I got home. “We&rsq...

We use pulmonary interventional procedures for the diagnosis of pulmonary diseases either for benign or malignant lesions. Flexible bronchoscopy with or without radial endobronchial ultrasound, convex-probe endobronchial ultrasound and electromagnetic navigation are procedures performed in centers with experience in diagnostic pulmonary medicine. The method of sedation and ventilation is very important in order to avoid or handle with success complications. Proper respiration during pulmonary (or other interventional) procedures is a key factor. Apart from the proper sedation method we have to choose the proper ventilation...

Conclusion: Collectively, chronic pain-enhanced carbonyl stress promotes myocardial ischemic intolerance by SIRT1 carbonylative inactivation and impairment of LKB1-AMPK interaction. ALDH2 activation and prevention of protein carbonylation may be a potential therapeutic target for myocardial ischemic vulnerability in chronic pain patients. Our results newly provided overlapping cellular mechanisms of chronic pain and myocardial dysfunction interplay.
