The Opportunity for Women’s Health in Emerging Markets
In this month’s article, I explore issues relating to the health of women in emerging markets. I will recommend that pharma companies wishing to maximize the opportunity in women’s health need to start from an understanding of how women are viewed by society in these markets and challenge awareness, attitudes and access barriers that can lead to their health outcomes being sub-optimal. As a starting point, it is necessary to establish a working definition of women’s health.  This isn’t as straightforward as it might seem, as women’s health can be considered at multiple levels.  The c...

Who Really Needs a Colonoscopy? (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
In the United States, several cancer experts said more Americans likely would get screened if their doctors offered them options. The most commonly suggested alternative: a simple take-at-home stool test that may suffice for healthy people who have no family history of the disease and aren't suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. If done annually, fecal immunochemical tests (FIT) have a strong track record for detecting hidden blood in the stool, an early sign of malignancy. A FIT do...

Boldly Going Where Few Have Gone Before: Meet Space Gynecologist Dr. Varsha Jain
Once upon a time, not so long ago, people feared that if a woman went into space while on her period, the blood would reverse its flow into her body -- also known as retrograde menstruation -- causing pain and possible death. This was one of many false notions that kept women from being included on space missions because back in those dark ages even the world's brightest operated under socio-cultural misperceptions surrounding the still-taboo subject of a woman's "time of the month." It's been more than three decades since the first American woman went where none had gone before, and times have certainly changed....

Signs and Symptoms of Colon Cancer

Electronic health records can help catch undiagnosed cases of Type 2 diabetes, UCLA researchers find
In 2012, a group of UCLA researchers set out to mine thousands of electronic health records for a more accurate and less expensive way to identify people who have undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes. The researchers got much more than they bargained for. Not only did they develop an algorithm with the potential to vastly increase the number of correct diagnoses of the disease by refining the pool of candidates who are put forward for screening; they also uncovered several previously unknown risk factors for diabetes, including a history of sexual and gender identity disorders, intestinal infections and a category of illnesses...

Half of the participants stood in a cluttered kitchen, which was scattered with piles of newspapers and dirty dishes and had a ringing phone. The other half of the women waited in an organized kitchen. Both kitchens contain...

Researchers investigate why obesity can trigger bowel cancer
ConclusionThis was an experimental animal study aiming to explore the possible biological mechanism by which obesity may be associated with the development of bowel cancer. The findings suggest it may be down to silencing a particular receptor – GUCY2C – located on the cells lining the bowel. The study found that excessive consumption of fat or carbohydrate in mice was associated with loss of the guanylin hormone responsible for turning on the GUCY2C receptor. Silencing this receptor led to tumour development. Further study confirmed this by showing that using a drug to increase production of guanylin...

Conclusion This was a pilot, double-blind randomised controlled trial that aimed to assess whether vitamin D supplementation would benefit people with IBS and also provide data to guide future studies. As expected, supplementation with vitamin D decreased the number of participants who were deficient, but did not provide a significantly better outcome for any of the symptoms of IBS. This was a well-designed trial that used computer-generated methods to create the sequence to assign participants to study groups. They also took steps to ensure that the allocated group was not revealed to any members of the research team unt...

In fact, your body is home to up to 100 times more microbes than your own cells, which make up your microbiome. While we provide them residence, these microbes help us out by providing a first line of defense against disease trying to invade our bodies, even breaking down food during digestion and producing vitamins. Now, the microbes that live in the digestive tract are helping us understand diabetes better. According to the Human Microbiome Project sponsored by the Nati...
