Odd new particles may be tunneling through the planet, and how the flu operates differently in big and small towns
Hoping to spot subatomic particles called neutrinos smashing into Earth, the balloon-borne Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) detector has circled the South Pole four times. ANITA has yet to detect those  particles, but it has twice seen oddball radio signals that could be evidence of something even weirder: some heavier particle unknown to physicists’ standard model, burrowing up through Earth. Science writer Adrian Cho joins host Sarah Crespi to discuss the possibility that this reading could lead to a big change in physics. Next, host Meagan Cantwell asks researcher Ben Dalziel what makes a b...

JAMA: 2010-08-25, Vol. 304, No. 8, Author in the Room™ Audio Interview
Interview with Ralph Gonzales, MD, MSPH, author of Does This Coughing Adolescent or Adult Patient Have Pertussis? Summary Points: 1. When evaluating adolescents and adults with persistent cough illness, the presence of classic symptoms of pertussis (paroxysmal cough, whooping cough, post-tussive emesis) modestly increase the likelihood of pertussis, and their absence modestly decreases the likelihood of pertussis; but they are not strong enough to rule-in or rule-out disease. 2. Most patients in whom pertussis is suspected will not derive symptomatic benefit from antibiotic treatment because their illness duration is usual...

Pandemic influenza
Nick Collins discusses planning for pandemic flu with Dr Jenni Parsons. The discussion focuses on the practical strategies general practices can employ to both prior to and during a flu pandemic. Although the process can seen daunting, simple starting points of good staff and patient education, maintaining good infection control practices, encouraging good ‘cough etiquette’ and improving practice triage procedures will make significant differences and will have benefits to the practice in managing other infections and local disasters and improving patient safety and care.
