One In Four Elderly Cancer Patients Receives No Pain Medication
Research to be published in the June 17 issue of the Journal of American Medical Association indicates that daily pain is prevalent among nursing home residents with cancer and is often untreated, particularly among older and minority patients. Increasingly, nursing homes are the site of death for such frail and older individuals. (1998-06-17)

Taking meds after heart procedures may boost trouble-free survival rate
Regardless of heart procedure, patients who adhered to prescribed medication were more than twice as likely to have event-free rates of survival.

How humans and their gut microbes may respond to plant hormones
A bowl of salad contains more than vitamins and minerals. Plant matter also includes remnants of the hormones plants produce to control how they grow, age, and manage water intake. Recently, scientists have reported that our gut microbes and cells may respond to these hormones and even produce similar molecules of their own. In an opinion article published in Trends in Plant Science, researchers in France explore how plant hormones may influence human health. (2017-08-22)

Research from Everest: Can leucine help burn fat and spare muscle tissue during exercise?
Research on Mt. Everest climbers is adding to the evidence that an amino acid called leucine -- found in foods, dietary supplements, energy bars and other products -- may help people burn fat during periods of food restriction, such as climbing at high altitude, while keeping their muscle tissue. It was one of two studies reported here today at the 242nd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS). (2011-08-28)

Best use of drug-eluting stents
Compared with bare metal stents, drug-eluting stents substantially reduce the risk of angiographic and clinical recurrence but do not affect mortality or the short term or long term risk of myocardial infarction. The use of drug-eluting stents necessitates extended treatment with dual antiplatelet therapy (aspirin plus thienopyridine) which may cause bleeding complications and interferes with or even precludes surgery in case this is needed. (2008-08-31)

Aspirin might prevent development of oesophageal adenocarcinoma
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) such as aspirin might be effective in preventing the development of oesophageal adenocarcinoma in patients with Barrett's oesophagus, according to US researchers reporting online in The Lancet Oncology. (2005-11-07)

Studies explore lifestyle choices and heart risks
Genetics and family history play a large role in a person's risk for heart disease, but factors in diet, lifestyle and the environment are also thought to influence susceptibility to the disease. A number of studies presented today at the American College of Cardiology's 56th Annual Scientific Session look at how health-related behaviors can influence a person's risk for cardiovascular disease. (2007-03-24)

NSAIDs prevent colon cancer by inducing death of intestinal stem cells that have mutation
Aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) protect against the development of colorectal cancer by inducing cell suicide pathways in intestinal stem cells that carry a certain mutated and dysfunctional gene, according to a new study led by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and the School of Medicine. The findings were published online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. (2014-11-03)

To help your mind, take steps to help your heart, study says
Could the same actions that help prevent a heart attack or stroke also prevent or slow the memory loss, confusion and thinking problems of dementia? A new study suggests that for many people, the answer could be yes. And for some, the impact of steps like controlling blood pressure and cholesterol might be greater than the effect of high-priced memory-preserving drugs. (2004-12-14)

Study examines platelet function testing for guiding antithrombotic treatment before PCI procedures
Among patients with acute coronary syndromes undergoing a procedure such as angioplasty, those who received platelet function tests before receiving antithrombotic therapy to determine appropriate clopidogrel dosing and who had high residual platelet reactivity (platelets resistant to antithrombotic therapy) were at an increased risk of an ischemic event at short- and long-term follow-up of up to two years, according to a study in the Sept. 21 issue of JAMA. (2011-09-20)

Pain relief can now be based on solid evidence
A Cochrane Review of data relating to about 45,000 patients involved in approximately 350 individual studies has provided an evaluation of the effect you can expect to get if you take commonly used painkillers at specific doses. The review also identifies pain killers for which there is only poor or no reliable evidence. This review will help doctors and patients to make evidence informed decisions of which pain killers to use, and is published in the latest edition of the Cochrane Library. (2011-09-06)

Recipient's immune system governs stem cell regeneration
A new University of Southern California-led study, published in Nature Medicine, describes how different types of immune system T-cells alternately discourage and encourage stem cells to regrow bone and tissue, bringing into sharp focus the importance of the transplant recipient's immune system in stem cell regeneration. (2011-11-20)

Studies confirm celecoxib may help prevent colorectal cancer in high risk patients
During the past year, the study of the potential use of COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) inhibitors to prevent colorectal and breast cancer has come under intense scrutiny. Recent research questioned the safety of these medicines as pain relievers, which was the initial indication, as well as for chemoprevention of cancer. Now, the latest data show that COX-2 inhibitors are highly effective in preventing pre-malignant tumors of the colon, and therefore may be useful in preventing colorectal cancer among high-risk patients.

St. Jude finds 'dancing' hair cells are key to humans' acute hearing
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital investigators have found that an electrically powered amplification mechanism in the cochlea of the ear is critical to the acute hearing of humans and other mammals. The findings will enable better understanding of how hearing loss can result from malfunction of this amplification machinery due to genetic mutation or overdose of drugs such as aspirin.

Dose of transplanted blood-forming stem cells affects their behavior
Unlike aspirin, bone marrow doesn't come with a neatly printed label with dosage instructions. However, a new study published in Cell Reports provides clues about how the dose of transplanted bone marrow might affect patients undergoing this risky procedure, frequently used to treat cancer and blood diseases. (2016-05-25)

Nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord sense pain caused by physical insult
Researchers have shown that the protein COX2 in mouse nerve cells in the central nervous system (CNS) is crucial for hypersensitivity to pain caused by the physical insult associated with inflammation, but not pain caused by the heat associated with inflammation. As pain caused by physical insult is a major symptom of postoperative and arthritic inflammation, it seems that COX2 in nerve cells in the CNS is central to the pain that accompanies these conditions.
