Scientists fix fractures with 3D-printed synthetic bone
Thu, 29 Sep 2016 02:50:30 -0400
By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists in the United States have successfully treated broken spines and skulls in animals using 3D-printed synthetic bone, opening the possibility of future personalized bone implants for humans to fix dental, spinal other bone injuries. Unlike real bone grafts, the synthetic material - called hyper-elastic bone - is able to regenerate bone without the need for added growth factors, is flexible and strong, and can be easily and rapidly deployed in the operating room. Giving details in a teleconference, the scientists said the results of their animal trials - published on Wednesday in the Science Translational Medicine journal - were "quite astounding".

A file photo showing the EpiPen auto-injection epinephrine pens manufactured by Mylan NV pharmaceutical company are seen in WashingtonBy Diane Bartz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. federal health agency said on Wednesday it had "expressly advised" Mylan NV that the drugmaker had improperly classified its EpiPen emergency allergy treatment in a way that allowed it to pay lower rebates to state health programs.

A least one state has launched an investigation into whether Mylan failed to pay proper rebates to the Medicaid program for the poor.

Mylan classified the EpiPen with the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program as a non-innovator multiple source drug, which pays a rebate of 13 percent to states, rather than innovator, which pays a rebate of a minimum of 23.1 percent.


Old heart device wires tied to complications, death risk
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:14:04 -0400
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Patients with pacemakers and defibrillators are about twice as likely to have minor and life-threatening complications when having them removed if old wiring was left behind in earlier procedures to replace or upgrade devices, a U.S. study suggests. Researchers analyzed data on surgery outcomes for 1,386 patients having devices removed because of infections, including a subset of 323 people who had abandoned leads – the wires that deliver energy from pacemakers and defibrillators to the heart muscle. Doctors were unable to remove the devices and all of the leads without serious complications in 13 percent of patients who had abandoned wires, compared to a 3.7 percent failure rate for patients who didn’t have abandoned leads.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 16:49:44 -0400
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - NBTY Inc, one of the largest U.S. herbal supplement producers, has agreed to conduct an advanced form of genetic testing to ensure that its herbal products contain what their labels say they contain, New York's attorney general said on Wednesday.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 16:04:46 -0400
By Chris Bertram MANCHESTER, England Sept 28 (Reuters) - England striker Jamie Vardy is a "genetic freak" like nine-times Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt, Leicester City's head of sport science Kevin Paxton said. Vardy enjoys an unorthodox lifestyle in an era of increasing emphasis on marginal gains from advanced sports science, meaning his electric pace and immense stamina are largely natural. In his autobiography, the Leicester forward revealed his unusual warm-up methods which included drinking a glass of port the night before a game while on match days he consumed several cans of a popular energy drink as well as a cup of double espresso.

Treatment could lower crash risk for truckers with sleep apnea
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:16:42 -0400
By Carolyn Crist (Reuters Health) - Commercial truck drivers who get treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) for two years may reduce their crash risk to the level of drivers without apnea, a study from Italy suggests. For professional drivers, the screening, treatment and management of sleep disorders should be mandatory to reduce accident risk and improve road safety, the study authors write in the journal Sleep Medicine. “Screening for OSA in heavy vehicle drivers should be a major public safety priority,” senior author Luigi Ferini-Strambi, director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Universita Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan, told Reuters Health.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:57:45 -0400
By Marina Depetris and Tom Miles GENEVA (Reuters) - Syria's besieged enclave of eastern Aleppo has no anesthetists and only six intensive care beds after two hospitals were disabled by air strikes overnight, a doctor from the Syrian American Medical Society said on Wednesday. Russian or Syrian warplanes knocked a major Aleppo hospital out of service on Wednesday, hospital workers said, and ground forces intensified their assault on the city's besieged rebel sector, in a battle that has become a potentially decisive turning point in the civil war. Shelling damaged at least one other hospital and a bakery, killing six residents queuing up for bread under a siege that has trapped 250,000 people with food running out.
Back to school season may mean surge in concussion risk
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:46:35 -0400
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - When children return to school each fall they face at least twice the concussion risk they had during summer vacation, a U.S. study suggests. For boys aged 10 to 19, the concussion rate surges to 7.0 cases for each 1,000 people in the autumn from 2.9 cases per 1,000 in the summer, according to an analysis of medical claims for members of Blue Cross and Blue Shield health plans. While the study didn’t examine why injuries spike in the fall, it may have something to do with the type of sports kids play at this time of year, said Dr. Trent Haywood, chief medical officer for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Chicago-based federation of 36 independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:20:54 -0400

Writings describing Boko Haram are seen on the wall along a street in BamaBy Kieran Guilbert DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Living conditions for people uprooted by Boko Haram violence and seeking refuge in camps and towns across northeast Nigeria are more deadly than the conflict between the Islamist militants and the army, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said on Wednesday. Hunger and malnutrition is widespread among the displaced in Borno State, not just in remote, previously inaccessible areas, but also in the capital Maiduguri, the medical aid group said. Coordination of relief efforts must be drastically improved and food aid urgently delivered to people in need across Borno, where the humanitarian situation is reaching "catastrophic levels", said MSF emergency program manager Natalie Roberts.

Lifestyle tweaks can help you keep your heart happy.Its World Heart Day on September 29, the World Heart Federations biggest day to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and how to maintain a healthy heart. In a 2015 study published in the journal Circulation, researchers from the Harvard University Chan School of Public Health found that those who drank three to five cups of coffee a day were less likely to die from heart disease, as well as a range of other diseases, when compared to those who drank no coffee, or less than two cups a day. For those who prefer tea, an American study published earlier this year found that tea drinkers could be 35% less likely to suffer a heart attack or another major cardiovascular event, with just one to three cups a day of either black or green tea shown to be beneficial.


In-office tests may detect hip tendon problems before MRI
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 10:52:21 -0400
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Two simple tests that can be done in a doctor’s office may be able to rule in or out a painful hip condition that is usually hard to diagnose without magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), according to a small study. A common overuse injury, gluteal tendinopathy can be treated with rest and stretching. “It is important to identify the condition because this will help better target therapy and we believe this study has moved the field forward considerably in terms of our understanding of clinical tests that help us diagnose the condition,” said senior author Bill Vicenzino of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.
Moderate drinking may not affect women’s fertility
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 10:47:29 -0400
“We tell women not to eat seafood, or consume too much caffeine when trying to conceive,” Dr. Christina Porucznik of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City told Reuters Health by phone. “So it’s reassuring to know that if they drink a small amount of alcohol, it’s not going to prevent them from getting pregnant.” But she cautions that women who think they might be pregnant should still limit their alcohol intake. Lead author Dr. Ellen Mikkelsen, senior researcher in the Department of Clinical Epidemiology at Aarhus University in Denmark, didn’t respond to a request for comment.
