Pharmacoscopy improves therapy for relapsed blood cancer in a first clinical trial
(CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences) 88.2 percent of patients receiving pharmacoscopy-guided treatment achieved partial or complete remission, compared to 23.5 percent to their own previous treatment. Further, the median progression-free survival increased four-fold. Retrospectively, pharmacoscopy also predicted the response of AML patients to first-line treatment with 90 percent accuracy. These results show that pharmacoscopy can assist decision-making of the responsible clinicians effectively and thus represent a powerful tool for practical precise and personalized medicine. (...

Let’s be honest: most parents feel better when their sick child is prescribed an antibiotic. There’s just something so reassuring about having a prescription. It’s hard to feel like all you can do is wait and give your child TLC; it feels better to do something. Even when the doctor says that your child has a virus, and explains that antibiotics treat bacteria, not viruses, it’s common for parents to think: but what if there is even a little chance that there is a bacterial infection along with — or instead of — the virus? It can’t hurt to be safe, right? But that’s the thing...

This vaccine mutation resulted from an egg-based manufacturing process commonly used today.
