Probiotics for preventing acute otitis media in children
This Systematic Review concludes that Probiotics may prevent AOM in children not prone to AOM, but the inconsistency of the subgroup analyses suggests caution in interpreting these results. Probiotics decreased the proportion of children taking antibiotics for any infection. The proportion of children experiencing adverse events did not differ between the probiotic and comparator groups. The optimal strain, duration, frequency, and timing of probiotic administration still needs to be established. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

Vitamins for Depression
In trying to cope with the debilitating symptoms of depression, people often turn to vitamins, supplements, herbs, or home remedies first. And it’s no wonder — such efforts to alleviate symptoms are often far less expensive and easier to obtain. For some, it may be a part of their rationalization that their depression “isn’t all that bad,” if it can be treated with vitamins and supplements. Many people find relief in taking vitamins and supplements for depression. It is also one of the most well-researched topics, so we know what the science has to say about the efficacy of such treatments. Bu...

Internal Spray Developed At Harvard Could Heal Gut Wounds
BOSTON (CBS) – Local researchers have developed a novel approach to help heal wounds “inside” the body. If you get a cut or a scratch on your skin, you can simply cover it with a bandage to help it heal, but there is no such remedy for wounds in the gut because it’s coated with a layer of mucus that prevents bandages from sticking. Now, researchers at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University are using gut bacteria to produce a probiotic hydrogel which could be sprayed onto a wound in the intestine to form a seal – like a spray-on bandage for the gut. This technology could one day be used to tr...

Metal straws clink against ice and cocktail shakers rattle as patrons belly up to the marble bar. A woman fresh out of work reads and nurses a drink at a corner table. An early-thirties couple chats over a pre-dinner beverage, holding hands in the flattering dim lighting. This is New York City’s first permanent booze-free bar, and no one is drinking alcoho...

In a new review published in the Lancet, researchers came to a disappointing conclusion about recent studies on treating peanut allergies. They found that treating children by exposing them to small amounts of peanuts, which has shown success in several studies, is actually associated with an increased risk of allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. This approach, called oral Immunotherapy, involves repeated controlled exposure to whatever is causing an allergic reaction — in this case peanut allergens — to retrain the immune system. Allergic reactions occur when the immune system treats benign substances, l...
