Trump Takes Propecia, A Hair-Loss Drug Associated With Mental Confusion, Impotence
In a snicker-worthy disclosure by President Donald Trump’s longtime personal physician, readers of The New York Times learned Thursday that the leader of the free world takes a small daily dose of the drug finasteride ―  otherwise known as Propecia ― which is used to treat male-pattern baldness.  The revelation by Dr. Harold N. Bornstein that the president uses a prostate-related drug to grow scalp hair was not previously known publicly, according to the Times story, and appears to explain why Trump has a very low level of prostate specific antigen, or PSA, a marker sometimes us...

New laser therapy for low-risk prostate cancer shows promise
Conclusion This large randomised controlled trial indicates that the new treatment vascular-targeted photodynamic therapy for men with low-risk prostate cancer results in a greater chance of being declared cancer-free, and slows the progress of the disease. The treatment also reduced the number of men who needed to have further surgery or radiotherapy to 6%, compared with 29% in the active surveillance group. This is a well-designed trial conducted in several countries that followed men for a reasonably long period of time. It also analysed all men included in the study, regardless of whether they completed treatment or ...

With the smoldering embers of the outbreak fading, there was cause for celebration. But there remains the impotent fear of the unseen: Ebola is still out there, lurking. We just don't know where it's hiding or when it will be back. (Source: CNN.com - Health)

At most cancer hospitals today, medical oncologists routinely order genetic tests that help guide their drug treatment decisions.

A small but increasing number of radiation oncologists is hoping to change that. At the annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology next week in Boston, researchers will describe their hunt for gene activity profiles in tumors that can help determine how susceptible the cancer will be to radiation.

Many Commonly Used Drugs Are Useless
Some medications are life saving. I am so thankful for the trusty med that tames my atrial fibrillation. Many meds are helpful -- demonstrating superiority to placebo in ways that are clearly clinically significant and life enhancing. But many (perhaps most) drugs are probably no more than very expensive placebos. Patients get prescriptions from doctors when their symptoms are most severe and improve with time and positive expectation, not because the med is really effective. Doctors and patients need independent, objective information on drug efficacy and risks. The multibillion dollar pharma marketing machine can tu...

Semen analysis usually looks at the numbers and the condition of whole sperm.
