Use of PRISM scores in triage of pediatric patients with diabetic ketoacidosis. (1/440)

Triage guidelines are needed to help in the decision process of intensive care unit (ICU) versus non-ICU admission for patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Pediatric risk of mortality (PRISM) scores have long been used to assess mortality risk. This study assess the usefulness of the traditional PRISM score and adaptation of that score (PRISM-ED, which uses presentation data only) in predicting hospital stay in pediatric patients with DKA. PRISM and PRISM-ED were tested for correlation with length of stay and length of ICU stay. A medical record review was conducted for patients admitted to The Children's Hospital of Alabama with DKA during an 18-month period (n = 79). Two scores were calculated for each study entrant: PRISM using the worst recorded values over the first 24 hours and PRISM-ED using arrival values. Median scores, median test, and Spearman rank correlations were determined for both tests. Median PRISM scores were PRISM = 11 and PRISM-ED = 12; Median PRISM and PRISM-ED scores for patients admitted to the ICU were less than median scores among floor-admitted patients: [table: see text] Spearman rank correlations were significant for both scores versus total stay: PRISM, rs = 0.29; P = 0.009; PRISM-ED, rs = 0.60, P < 0.001. Also, correlations were significant for both scores versus ICU stay: PRISM rs = 0.22, P = 0.05; PRISM-ED, rs = 0.41, P < 0.001. Triage guidelines for ICU versus floor admission for DKA patients could have significant economic impact (mean ICU charge = $11,417; mean charge for floor admission = $4,447). PRISM scores may be an important variable to include in a multiple regression model used to predict the need for ICU monitoring.  (+info)

Diabetes and automobile crashes in the elderly. A population-based case-control study. (2/440)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to estimate the association between diabetes and its complications and at-fault automobile crashes among older drivers. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This was a population-based case-control study. Case subjects were drivers aged > or = 65 years who had been involved in a crash during 1996 in which they were at fault. Two control groups were selected: 1) crash-involved not-at-fault subjects and 2) non-crash-involved subjects. Telephone interviewers collected information on demographic characteristics, driving habits, diabetes sequelae and treatment, other chronic medical conditions, and visual function. RESULTS: Overall, there was no association between diabetes and at-fault crash involvement. The adjusted odds ratio (OR) for diabetes was 1.1 (CI 0.7-1.9) when case subjects were compared with either control group. However, the adjusted OR for diabetes was 2.5 (0.9-7.2) among subjects who had been involved in a crash in the 4 years preceding 1996, while it was only 0.9 (0.5-1.7) among those who had not. There was no evidence of an association between treatment modalities and at-fault crash involvement. Case subjects were, although not significantly (P = 0.25), more likely (OR 2.4) to report neuropathy compared with both control groups, and retinopathy was not associated with increased crash risk. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides no evidence that older drivers with diabetes are at increased risk for automobile crashes. There remains the possibility that those with diabetes who have more severe disease or have had multiple crashes are at increased risk.  (+info)

Application of data mining to intensive care unit microbiologic data. (3/440)

We describe refinements to and new experimental applications of the Data Mining Surveillance System (DMSS), which uses a large electronic health-care database for monitoring emerging infections and antimicrobial resistance. For example, information from DMSS can indicate potentially important shifts in infection and antimicrobial resistance patterns in the intensive care units of a single health-care facility.  (+info)

Comparison of the PACE 2 assay, two amplification assays, and Clearview EIA for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis in female endocervical and urine specimens. (4/440)

Screening for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in a greater proportion of sexually active patients has become an accepted protocol by most health care providers. The purpose of this study was to compare the current test methods for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis used at the University of South Alabama, the PACE 2 assay (Gen-Probe) and the Clearview EIA (Wampole Laboratories), with two amplification technologies, the AMP CT (Gen-Probe) and LCx (Abbott) assays. In addition, a number of demographic parameters were ascertained by asking questions at the time of examination as well as for health care provider concerns and preferences. One urine and four endocervical swab specimens were collected in random order from 787 female patients attending one of four obstetrics-gynecology clinics. Eighty-seven percent of patients had no STD-related symptoms. Patients were considered positive for C. trachomatis if three or more assays (swab and/or urine) were positive. Abbott and Gen-Probe confirmed discrepant results by alternate amplified assays. A total of 66 true-positive specimens were detected by use of the combination of endocervical swabs and urine specimens. After discrepant analysis, sensitivities for endocervical swab specimens for the EIA and the PACE 2, LCx, and AMP CT assays were 50, 81, 97, and 100%, respectively. Sensitivities for the LCx and AMP CT assays with urine specimens were 98 and 81%, respectively. The prevalence of C. trachomatis was 8.4%, as determined by amplification technology. Overall, the amplification technologies were the most sensitive methods with either swab (AMP CT assay) or urine (LCx assay) specimens. The PACE 2 assay offered the advantage of a simpler and less expensive assay with acceptable sensitivity. The clearview CT EIA, while yielding a rapid in-office result, had unacceptably low sensitivity. The wide variation in performance with amplification assays with urine specimens as reported in both this study and the literature obviates the need to clarify optimal parameters for this specimen type.  (+info)

The Women's Health Trial Feasibility Study in Minority Populations: changes in dietary intakes. (5/440)

This randomized clinical trial examined the feasibility of low-fat dietary interventions among postmenopausal women of diverse backgrounds. During 1992-1994, 2,208 women aged 50-79 years, 28% of whom were black and 16% Hispanic, enrolled at clinics in Atlanta, Georgia, Birmingham, Alabama, and Miami, Florida. Intervention/support groups met periodically with a nutritionist to reduce fat intake to 20% of energy and to make other diet modifications. At 6 months postrandomization, the intervention group reduced fat intake from 39.7% of energy at baseline to 26.4%, a reduction of 13.3% of energy, compared with 2.3% among controls. Saturated fatty acid and cholesterol intakes were reduced, but intakes of fruits and vegetables, but not grain products, increased. Similar effects were observed at 12 and 18 months. Black and non-Hispanic white women had similar levels of reduction in fat, but the decrease in Hispanic women was less. Changes did not vary significantly by education. While bias in self-reported intakes may have resulted in somewhat overestimated changes in fat intake, the reported reduction was similar to the approximately 10% of energy decrease found in most trials and suggests that large changes in fat consumption can be attained in diverse study populations and in many subgroups.  (+info)

High prevalence of chlamydial and gonococcal infection in women entering jails and juvenile detention centers--Chicago, Birmingham, and San Francisco, 1998. (6/440)

The prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is high among women entering corrections facilities. Screening for STDs in these facilities, however, is difficult because of the large number of persons admitted each day and the frequent shortage of medical staff and examination space. New, sensitive urine tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia have made screening practical outside of medical settings. To assess the feasibility of screening women in corrections facilities for chlamydial and gonococcal infection using urine tests and to determine the prevalences of these infections, the Chicago Department of Public Health and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) began testing women and adolescent females entering the Cook County Jail and the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center in Chicago and the Jefferson County Jail and the Jefferson County Youth Detention Center in Birmingham, respectively, in 1998. The San Francisco Department of Public Health has been testing women at the San Francisco County jails for chlamydial and gonococcal infections using urine tests since 1996 and adolescent females at the San Francisco Youth Guidance Center since 1997. This report summarizes the findings for testing incarcerated women in 1998 in the three cities; preliminary results indicate that, in these facilities, testing for chlamydial and gonococcal infections is feasible and that a high percentage of women test positive for these infections.  (+info)

Medcast: evaluation of an intelligent pull technology to support the information needs of physicians. (7/440)

This study reports the initial results of an evaluation of Medcast, a commercial medical information service that uses intelligent pull technology to deliver medical information to practicing physicians. Medical news, CME, and other information are transferred by modem nightly to the physician's computers where this information can be accessed at a convenient time. A survey was faxed to 195 subscribers to the system. A total of 73 (39%) responded. The results indicate that prior to implementation of the Medcast system, almost 40 percent of the respondents did not use their computers for professional activities because of time constraints, costs and computer literacy problems. After implementation of Medcast, almost 70 percent of the respondents used the system two or more hours per week. Ninety percent of the respondents felt that use of the system has enhanced their practice. These findings have important implications for future efforts to implement medical informatics applications to support the information needs of practicing physicians. Experience with intelligent pull technology that is relatively easy to use may be a good way to break down attitudes and barriers to the use of computer systems to support clinical practice and may prepare physicians for a wider use of the Internet to support their future information needs.  (+info)

Teaching international animal agriculture. (8/440)

Students who major in animal science at U.S. institutions are generally exposed to a curriculum that emphasizes commercial, large-scale production of the few traditional food animals: cattle, poultry, sheep, and swine. Globally, most farmers live in lesser-developed countries under limited-resource conditions of land, feed supplies, equipment, and capital. The promotion of commercial animal production enterprises may not be appropriate for such farms because it can subject farmers to considerable economic risk. Rather, use of limited numbers of large livestock, locally adapted breeds, or smaller livestock (e.g., ducks, goats, guinea pigs, and rabbits) may be more appropriate under subsistence, integrated farming systems. In this global context, a course in international animal agriculture has been taught for 15 yr to undergraduate and graduate students. The course consists of a review of traditional and potential livestock species well suited for impoverished families on small farms and methods to implement sustainable livestock projects, including feasibility, design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation stages. To enhance student understanding, global food issues and challenges are illustrated with case studies. A term paper is also assigned for which students choose three suitable livestock species or local breeds that would be complementary on a small crop farm (< 5 ha). Daily dietary requirements of protein and energy per family member are calculated. Itemized enterprise budgets and production tables are prepared. Early in the course, the general consensus of students was that people who are malnourished and live in poverty have low personal ambition and motivation, and that their problems should be amenable to solution by application of American technology and expertise. The course modifies such attitudes and enhances a student's critical thinking and problem-solving abilities and communication skills. Course evaluations indicated that students believed that it is important to acquire some international knowledge and understanding when seeking a job, and that certain animal science courses should contain some international content. Students gain an understanding of global animal agriculture and an appreciation of the complexity of food production and hunger issues.  (+info)

The Alabama map turtle (Graptemys pulchra) is a species of emydid turtle endemic to the southern United States. Differentiation from other turtle species includes a black stripe running down the center of its back with knobs extruding from it, but these projections wear down with age. T.H. Bean and L. Kumlen first collected the Alabama map turtle in July 1876 from a lake near Montgomery, Alabama. Type locality for this species is Montgomery County, Alabama. Baur described and named the Alabama map turtle in 1893. The genus Graptemys includes nine species of mostly aquatic turtles. The Alabama map turtle has a unique location to its habitat in the Southeast. It is endemic to the Mobile Bay drainage basin and inhabits the lotic (flowing water) areas of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and possibly Louisiana. It ranges from the Pearl River in Mississippi and Louisiana eastward to the Yellow River in Florida and Alabama. The IUCN lists the Alabama map turtle as near threatened. Alabama lists ...

Most addicts reported getting selective, renting and then family friends and people who sold drugs, or to dealers they trusted. Addicts also reported that they thought that renting was a cheaper option to cash payments and that it safeguarded them from violence and humiliation at the hand of drug sellers, the experts said. An interview with Professor Lesley JonesUAB criminologists Heith Copes, Ph.D., and Rod K. Brunson, Ph.D., interviewed 30 respondents incarcerated in two prisons in Louisiana. Nineteen respondents admitted to renting vehicles owned by addicts in exchange for medications.29 percent for 14 individuals with more than 5 to 9 years since analysis and 27 percent for 15 individuals with more than 9 to 24 years since medical diagnosis .

Grammar and Style in British English: The modern essay is application essay, a fairly short piece of self evaluation essay class work of between 500 and 3,000 words, written on a well-defined subject intended for reading in a. single session. Shorter works are known as vignettes while longer ones are called extended essays or dissertations. A doctoral thesis can. reach100,000 words, after which the work becomes book size.

The opening of present-day Alabama to settlement when the Creek War of 1813-1814 ended inspired a wave of migration from the eastern United States that foreshadowed the large-scale westward movement of later decades. "Alabama Fever," an expression in use by 1817, referred to the frenzy to establish land claims in the area formerly known as West Florida or East Mississippi, which resulted in the admission of Alabama as a state by 1819. The driving force behind Alabama Fever was the global demand for cotton cultivation stimulated by new industrial textile manufacturing processes. The expression "Alabama Fever" has also been used by historians to describe the broader phenomenon of the expansion of the cotton frontier before 1860, from the seaboard states to Alabama and Mississippi and onward to northern Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. The establishment of cotton plantations in Alabama and the region as a whole transformed and expanded the global economy, producing unprecedented wealth in ...
OBJECTIVES: To examine changes in indoor tanning prevalence among Alabama high school students the year before and after its 2014 legal restrictions compared with Florida, which had more lenient legislation. METHODS: We analyzed the Alabama and Florida 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (n = 14 389; population = 1 864 241) by gender, age, year (2013, 2015), state (Alabama, Florida), and year-by-state interactions. RESULTS: Prevalence of indoor tanning was higher among Alabama youths, but the difference did not significantly change after the law was passed in Alabama (between-state change differences ranged from a 3.3% increase among 14-year-old Alabama girls to a 9.7% decrease among 14-year-old Alabama boys). CONCLUSIONS: We found no significant changes in indoor tanning among adolescents since the enactment of Alabamas tanning restrictions in 2014. More oversight and monitoring are needed to ensure that indoor tanning facilities are compliant with emerging laws.

In June 2006, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) requested assistance from CDC to investigate and control a multiyear epidemic of syphilis in Jefferson County. The county had experienced a decrease in primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis cases, from 279 in 1995 to nine in 2002. By 2005, the incidence had begun to rise substantially, culminating with 238 cases in 2006 and 166 in 2007. Beginning in August 2006, CDC assisted the Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) in investigating the increase in cases and in planning control measures. This report summarizes the results of that investigation, which found that the characteristics of cases during 2002--2004 differed substantially from cases during 2005--2007. Declines in U.S. syphilis rates, which reached their lowest point in 2000, led to optimism that syphilis elimination (defined as the absence of sustained syphilis transmission) in the United States was possible, and CDCs National Syphilis Elimination Plan was launched in ...

Originally named White Sulphur Springs, Sulphur Springs is an unincorporated, census-designated place (CDP) in Jefferson County located about two miles southwest of Pine Bluff (Jefferson County). It received its name due to its proximity to natural sulfur-rich springs. It was a spa and resort community during the mid-1800s and served as an important Confederate training and staging area during the Civil War. Following the war, the community once again returned to a resort community with dreams of expanding into a separate incorporated town. The expansion, however, was cut short by World War I, and the community was never incorporated. Following a flood that consumed much of southeast Arkansas in 1844, settlers began moving into the area southwest of Pine Bluff. The first settlers in what would become Sulphur Springs were George Brummitt and his family. Brummitt obtained land as an assignee of James Freel, who had purchased the land through a War of 1812 bond and sold the claim to Brummitt. While ...

Patients in Alabama will soon be able to be evaluated and, in certain cases, treated by physical therapists (PTs) without first having to obtain a physician referral. With the enactment of Alabama House Bill 163, Alabama becomes the 47th state to achieve some form of direct access. HB 163, sponsored by state Rep Ed Henry and signed by Gov Robert Bentley yesterday, goes into effect July 1. Prior to implementation of HB 163, PTs were prohibited from performing a physical therapy evaluation unless the patient had a referral. The new law provides for direct access to evaluation, fitness, wellness, and prevention services, and for treatment under certain conditions.. The legislation, which faced significant opposition, primarily from physician groups, is the culmination of many years of difficult work by the Alabama Chapter. Despite numerous obstacles, fierce and well-financed opponents, and the devastation of the April 27, 2011, tornado, the chapter was able to obtain a compromise from opponents on ...

Patients were treated with contaminated intravenous feeding bags.. Nine Alabama hospital patients who were treated with contaminated intravenous feeding bags have died and the maker has pulled the product off the market, state health officials said Tuesday.. Ten more people treated with the bags that provide nutrients through IV tubes also were sickened by the outbreak of serratia marcescens bacteria, health officials said. However, officials have not definitively tied the deaths to the bacterial outbreak at six hospitals, State Health Officer Donald Williamson said.. "There is nothing to suggest the deaths were directly related to the bacterial infection," says Williamson.. On March 16, two hospitals reported increased cases of serratia marcescens to the Alabama Department of Public Health. Officials linked the infection to TPN, a common nutritional supplement delivered by IV tubes.. A single pharmacy, Birmingham-based Meds IV, made the bags. Williamson said the company has notified its ...
Friday, June 21, 2013 By Bob Shepard. The Emergency Department at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Hospital will begin testing baby boomers for the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in August 2013. All patients born between 1945 and 1965 who present at the ED for any cause will be offered a blood test for HCV as part of their routine examination.. The testing is part of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) initiative designed to identify patients with HVC and get them into appropriate treatment. The CDC estimates that one-time testing of all Baby Boomers could detect 800,000 additional people with hepatitis C and save more than 120,000 lives because 75 percent of these infections are curable with new treatments.. "We anticipate screening between 8,000 and 12,000 Baby Boomers for HCV in 2013 and expect to identify between 260 to 400 new cases of HCV infection at UAB," said James Galbraith, M.D., associate professor of emergency medicine and head of the UAB HIV and HCV screening ...

There are many factors that may play a role, says University of Alabama at Birmingham exercise physiologist Gary Hunter, Ph.D., and tendon length may be an important one. In findings just published in Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise, a journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, Hunter shows that a longer Achilles tendon leads to greater energy efficiency in running, which in turn might enable better running performance.. "Longer Achilles tendons appear to generate more power because they stretch more," said Hunter, a professor in the UAB Schools of Education and Health Professions. "Its like a rubber band; the longer the stretch, the more force that can be generated to provide forward velocity while running.". When describing running, Hunter says muscles and tendons work together in a muscle/tendon complex. During the landing phase of running and jumping - as the foot hits the ground - the tendons, particularly the Achilles tendon, stretch. Longer tendons have more capacity ...

University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham AL 35294. A new discovery in physical rehabilitation is discussed in an article entitled Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy: A new family of techniques with broad application to physical rehabilitation--A clinical review, which appears in this issue of the Journal. Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CI Therapy) techniques induce patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA) and other types of injury to practice using an affected limb on an intensive or massed practice basis for consecutive weeks. The signature intervention for persons with CVA involves training use of the more-impaired arm in the clinic for at least 6 hours per day for from 10 to 15 consecutive weekdays and constraining use of the less-impaired arm both in the clinic and at home for the 2-3 week treatment period. Its most salient aspect is the demonstration in controlled studies that the treatment effect transfers to the real world where it substantially increases the actual ...
The Ministerial Health Certificate Program (MHCP) has been developed in collaboration with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Public Health’s Center for the Study of Community Health and Congregations for Public Health.

WASHINGTON : Eating foods rich in potassium, such as bananas and avocados, daily may prevent hardening of the arteries that can result in heart disease and death, researchers, including one of Indian origin, claim. Researchers at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in the US have shown, for the first time, that reduced dietary potassium promotes elevated aortic stiffness in a mouse model, as compared with normal-potassium-fed mice. Such arterial stiffness in humans is predictive of heart disease and death from heart disease, they said. Researchers, including Anupam Agarwal from UAB, also found that increased dietary potassium levels lessened vascular calcification and aortic stiffness. They unravelled the molecular mechanism underlying the effects of low or high dietary potassium. Such knowledge of how vascular smooth muscle cells in the arteries regulate vascular calcification emphasises the need to consider dietary intake of potassium in the prevention of vascular complications of
In 2005, The University of Alabama at Birmingham established a NIDDK-funded, interdisciplinary center of excellence in PKD-related research, with specific emphasis on recessive PKD. In the previous Core Center award period, we developed a Core Resource to capture clinical and mutational data for ARPKD patients (Core A: ARPKD Clinical and Genetic Resource, NCT00575705). However, studies in the last several years have demonstrated that ARPKD and other single gene disorders characterized by renal cystic disease and extra-renal phenotypes share numerous pathogenic features. In the current competitively- renewed Center, we have expanded this Core resource to include other hepato/renal fibrocystic diseases..

As a prognostic tool, fMRI may also be considered for predicting language deficits or nonverbal memory outcomes that may occur after a patient undergoes temporal lobe resection (both recommendations based on Level C evidence).. However, the test should be considered for predicting verbal memory outcomes in patients undergoing left medial lobe surgery (Level B).. "We now know there is evidence that supports the use of fMRI for presurgical evaluation," lead author Jerzy P. Szaflarski, MD, PhD, professor of neurology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and director of the UAB Epilepsy Center, told Medscape Medical News.. "People were already using it for this purpose. So we wanted to put this information in a form that allows clinicians to look at the evidence and decide what is best for the individual patient," added Dr Szaflarski.. Keep Reading at Medscape. ...
New research from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) says low potassium levels produce an increased risk of death or hospitalization in patients with heart failure and chronic kidney disease (CKD).

TUESDAY, Aug. 20 (HealthDay News) -- Higher levels of the key blood protein albumin might help explain why blacks are at elevated heart risk compared to whites, a new study suggests.. Elevated levels of albumin in urine-based tests are tied to an increased risk of coronary heart disease in black Americans but not whites, the study found.. Rising albumin levels in urine samples are a sign of kidney damage and a strong risk factor for heart disease, said lead researcher Dr. Orlando Gutierrez of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Blacks tend to have higher levels of albumin in their urine than whites, which "may contribute to racial disparities in cardiovascular outcomes," according to background information in the study.. Gutierrezs team examined data from more than 28,000 black and white adults aged 45 and older. Over a median (midpoint) four and a half years of follow-up, there were 616 heart disease events, including 421 nonfatal heart attacks, among the participants.. Blacks with the ...
A new study reveals that black Americans display lower levels of vitamin D and greater pain sensitivity than do white Americans. A Vitamin D deficiency may be a risk factor for increased knee osteoarthritic pain in black Americans, the authors conclude. Clinical practice guidelines state that vitamin D levels less than 20 ng/mL represent deficiency, and levels between 21 and 29 ng/mL represent insufficiency. Given that low levels of vitamin D are linked to chronic pain and other health conditions, especially in black Americans, the research team set out to investigate if variations in vitamin D levels contribute to racial differences in patients with knee pain caused by osteoarthritis (OA). Researchers at the University of Florida and the University of Alabama at Birmingham recruited 94 participants-45 black and 49 white patients with symptomatic knee OA-to complete questionnaires regarding their symptoms. The study group was 75% female and an average 56 years old. In addition, study ...

Dollard et al. (2007) report a weighted average of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) of 14.1% due to congenital CMV infection. Fowler and Boppana (2006) reported hearing loss in 8.7% of children with asymptomatic infections and in 41% with symptomatic infections. The most complete data on hearing loss among children with congenital CMV infection come from studies conducted at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Fowler et al. (1999) reported that 8% of all CMV-infected children identified with SNHL had a threshold of 30 dB or greater at 6 years of age, including 11% of children who were asymptomatic at birth and 36% of children who were symptomatic at birth (Fowler et al., 1999). Given that 59% of the children diagnosed with SNHL at 6 years of age had not been identified by 12 months of age, frequent and routine audiological follow-up is needed to identify children with CMV-related hearing loss (Fowler et al., 1999 ...
Whitsett, T. and Lamartineiere, C.A. Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Alabama at Birmingham. Even with the advent of new and aggressive therapeutics, breast cancer remains a destructive disease and a leading killer among cancers. There is and should be a concerted effort to prevent breast cancer. We have shown that the consumption of genistein, a major constituent of soy, in a prepubertal rat confers protection against chemically-induced mammary cancer.. Another polyphenol that has received much attention for health benefits is resveratrol, a component found in red grapes (red wine). We have investigated the chemopreventive properties of resveratrol using the DMBA model for mammary carcinoma in the Sprague-Dawley rat. Dietary administration of pure resveratroil (1 g/kg AIN-76A diet) was provided for the entirety of life. Control animals were maintained on AIN-76A diet, reportedly void of phytoestrogens.

In the first head-to-head comparison of the three most common drugs used at the time of a kidney transplant to prevent organ rejection, researchers found that the least expensive drug "" at one-half to one-fifth the price "" is as safe and effective as the other two, according to a paper published by University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers in the May 19, 2011, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.. Based at UAB, researchers in the INTAC trial spent three years following 474 patients who had undergone kidney transplants at 30 U.S. transplant centers. They compared the drugs basiliximab, antithymocyte globulin and alemtuzumab to definitively answer which of the three would be the most appropriate to prescribe to prevent rejection during the first six to 12 months following transplant surgery, when rejection is most likely.. "These are intravenous drugs given at the time of transplant in the operating room or early in the first week after transplant and are intensive ...

Back in med school, maybe even in undergraduate days, physicians learned of the inverse relationship between health status and income. The poorer someone is, the more likely he is to develop diabetes, cancer, or even a burst appendix. So it comes as no surprise that a study sponsored by the American Heart Association says that the odds of having heart failure are higher for elderly with low incomes.. Income is more a predictor than even education level. Someone with a college degree who happens to be poor seems to be more susceptible to heart failure than someone with a lower education level who is well off, says Ali Ahmed, MD, MPH, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine.. Ahmed unveiled his study at the American Heart Associations Scientific Sessions 2011. According to the AHA, Ahmeds study is the first to link low income with increased risk of heart failure in men and women of Medicare age. Those participants lived in the community, not in any hospital, clinic, or ...

Scientific Literature Reports. The FDA review concluded that there are relatively few reports in the scientific literature describing fatal cases of intoxication with carisoprodol. The FDA further found that there are inconsistencies in the literature with regard to what is considered a toxic concentration level (17, 22, 28-31). As carisoprodol is frequently abused in combination with other drugs, the specific contribution of carisoprodol to a fatality may be difficult to ascertain.. [[Page 77350]]. However, several publications have attributed therapeutic levels of carisoprodol at 10-40 mg/l, toxic levels at 30-50 mg/l, and a lethal level at 110 mg/l (31-33).. Davis and Alexander (31) reviewed carisoprodol-related deaths in Jefferson County, Alabama, from January 1, 1986 to October 31, 1997. Of a total of 8,162 Medical Examiner cases, toxicology analysis found 24 cases in which carisoprodol was in the decedents blood. Blood carisoprodol concentrations in decedents ranged from ,1 mg/l to 96.8 ...

Note: Long after Dow Corning went bankrupt, the National Academy of Sciences stated there is no proven link between silicone implants and systemic disease.. Since 1977 our law firm has represented a national plastic surgery organization, the largest state plastic surgery association, and the largest physician-owned medical malpractice company in the country. We believed ourselves fairly well-informed on plastic surgery and its practitioners. By 1991, silicone had been in medical use for many years, and the utilization of silicone breast implants in augmentation and reconstructive surgery was both widespread and unquestioned. Surgeons were regularly assured by the manufacturers that the product was efficacious and safe. Between 1974 and 1989, only 99 breast implant-related cases were filed against Dow Corning, the largest manufacturer of these implants.1. It is estimated that between one million and two million women had silicone breast implants between 1964 and 1992.2 Questions regarding safety, ...
