Precision Medicine is a medical approach that proposes to prevent and treat disease based upon a persons unique genetic makeup and their lifestyle habits. Precision medicine, the ability to accurately measure specific predictors of patient outcomes is implemented in personalized clinical care. Doctors have been performing precision medicine and personalized care for many years. For example, high blood pressure (hypertension) is commonly measured as a modifiable risk factor for vascular disease. However, advances in the basic knowledge of biology and disease, and advances in technologies now allow many more biomarkers to be measured to predict disease and target therapy. For example, in breast cancer the precision medicine involves the measurement of estrogen receptor as a biomarker for personalized use of anti-hormone therapy. Precision medicine incorporates the complexity of biology and disease though multi-scale analysis and systems biology. Such analysis often requires large scale data ...

AU - Goldstein, Daniel A.. AU - Koff, Jean L.. AU - Flowers, Christopher R.. PY - 2018/7/3. Y1 - 2018/7/3. N2 - Activated B-cell-like (ABC) diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is associated with worse survival after standard rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (RCHOP) chemoimmunotherapy compared to germinal center B-cell-like (GCB) subtype. Preliminary evidence suggests that benefits from novel agents may vary by subtype. Hypothesizing that treatment stratified by DLBCL subtype could be potentially cost-effective, we developed micro-simulation models to compare three first-line treatment strategies: (1) standard RCHOP for all patients (2) subtype testing followed by RCHOP for GCB and novel treatment for ABC DLBCL, and (3) novel treatment for all patients.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system that dates back nearly 4,000 years. Auricular acupuncture was first mentioned around 500 B.C. in the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine, which is the equivalent of the Bible for TCM practitioners. However, the method in which auricular acupuncture is practiced today is actually based upon discoveries that occurred in France in the 1950s. Modern auricular acupuncture is based upon the work done by Dr. Paul Nogier of France.. Auricular acupuncture is the stimulation of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions. These health conditions may be taking place anywhere throughout the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points can be done manually, with an acupuncture needle, a laser, magnets or ear seeds. Regardless of the means of stimulation, auricular acupuncture can be a very powerful addition to regular acupuncture treatments.. The current form of auricular acupuncture came about after Dr. Nogier noticed ...
Scutellaria baicalensis (or Baikal skullcap, as opposed to Scutellaria lateriflora, a skullcap native to North America) is a species of flowering plant in the Lamiaceae family. The plant is cultivated in Siberia, Mongolia, the Russian Far East, China and Korea. It is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine, where it has the name huáng cen (Chinese: 黄芩). As a Chinese traditional medicine, huang qin usually refers to the dried root of S. baicalensis Georgi, S. viscidula Bge., S. amoena C.H. Wright, and S. ikoninkovii Ju. Several chemical compounds have been isolated from the root; baicalein, baicalin, wogonin, norwogonin, oroxylin A and β-sitosterol are the major ones. It is important to use the Latin name, as the term skullcap is used for over 200 varieties, and various ailments, each with varying degrees of effectiveness. Sometimes, Scutellaria lateriflora (North American skullcap) is mistaken for S. baicalensis. This confusion can result in the intake of the ...

Given the absence of a framework to set a national vaccine-safety research agenda, the National Vaccine Plan should call for expanded funding for safety research and include establishing a permanent group to advise the government on safety issues, the report says. Little vaccine research supported by the National Institutes of Health appears to be geared toward safety, the committee noted. Moreover, as the number and kinds of vaccines have increased, funding to monitor safety has not. The monitoring system has successfully caught problems such as a rare but severe intestinal injury linked to a discontinued rotavirus vaccine, but the Immunization Safety Office within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention needs more resources to do its work. A new vaccine safety advisory group could guide efforts to address potential safety concerns and the development of a research agenda with clear priorities ...

Although the Institute of Medicines report on breast implants is now very outdated, there are still plastic surgeons and other breast implant advocates that quote it. The purpose of this article is to explain what that report did and did not include.. At the time the Institute of Medicine report was published in 1999, the major controversy about breast implants was whether it could cause connective-tissue diseases or autoimmune diseases. There were only 17 studies on the subject at the time, but the conventional wisdom was that these studies proved that breast implants are safe. However, a careful review of the results paints a different picture.. • These studies do not provide a comprehensive evaluation of diseases among breast implant patients. Most evaluate a few connective-tissue diseases, including such rare diseases as scleroderma and lupus. The studies would have to be much larger to determine whether implants cause these diseases. They would have to include a wider range of health ...

The hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) cation (Na+/K+) currents (If/Ih) are generated by 4 members of the channel family (HCN1-4).1 These currents contribute to the pacemaker function2 in heart and brain.3 The HCN4 current is known to play a crucial role in the automaticity of the sinus node through the generation of a slow diastolic depolarization during the phase 4 of the cardiac action potential.4 Thus, it is a crucial channel for appropriate pacemaker activity and conduction system function because it facilitates rapid repolarization. Interestingly, HCN4 has been shown to be expressed in essentially the entire heart tissue.5 Mutations in HCN4 have been associated mainly with sick sinus syndrome phenotype6; however, in recent years, a broad spectrum of phenotypes has been reported, including sinus bradycardia,7 inappropriate sinus tachycardia,8 early-onset atrial fibrillation,9,10 atrio-ventricular block,11,12 idiopathic ventricular tachycardia,13 left ventricular ...

The NIDDK is one of the National Institutes of Health.. "We are excited to embark on this project with our colleagues at UW," said Srinivas Iyengar, PhD, the Dorothy H. and Lewis Rosenstiel Professor of Pharmacological and Biological Chemistry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Director of the Mount Sinai Institute for Systems Biomedicine. "This is a unique opportunity to enhance care for many by shedding new light on the condition of the individual ...

We assessed implementation of precision medicine within the Veterans Health Administration. We analyzed the use of interleukin-28B (IL28B) pharmacogenetic test, which predicts interferon-alpha treatment response in patients with hepatitis C. Patients with favorable CC genotype exhibit a two-fold higher response than patients with less favorable genotypes (CT and TT). Linking IL28B tests to Veterans Health Administration clinical data, we analyzed test use, concordance with guidelines, subsequent interferon-a treatment, and site variations.
Undergraduate research training programs need to include experiences that go beyond bench work and poster presentations in order to increase the number of students that enter and complete PhD programs. The National Research Council and Institute of Medicine of the National Academies identified the lack of underrepresented minority basic and clinical researchers as an important issue that contributes to increasing in health disparities (Hahm and Ommaya 2006, National Academy of Sciences Report). In their report, opportunities to address clinical research workforce diversity needs for 2010, the committee stated that "those who belong to a group of interest are more likely to have a personal experience that will aid in the selection of testable hypotheses and methods appropriate to the population." The integration of "research with a purpose" philosophy could help undergraduate student to better appreciate a research career in Neuroscience.. The core of the Neuroscience Research Opportunity to ...
