Letter from the President

Memorial Day is not Political

     Today is a day we can all honor our fallen soldiers. I am not one who supports all of the wars our leaders have gotten us into but I do honor all of the soldiers who are willing to fight for us. Imagine what our lives would have been like without them…

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Tetrahydrobiopterin is a drug already FDA-approved for a metabolic disorder and now is being used to dial down the adrenaline level in kidney patients by Dr Jeanie Park, MD, MS and Assistant Professor at Emory University School of Medicine.
  •      Early embryo viability assessment (EEVA) is increasing the odds that an implanted embryo will result in a successful pregnancy and delivery. Thomas B. Pool, PhD, HCLD (ABB), Scientific Director at the Fertility Center of San Antonio says “we have been looking for over 30 years for some way to tell how viable an embryo is” so he is thrilled with this new test.
  •      A patient’s own fat is being used for reconstruction after mastectomy. Dr Michael Zenn, MD, MBA, Plastic Surgeon at Duke University Medical Center says it can work even 10 or 15 years later and it’s not big surgery.

     Our first special report is from USF Moffitt Cancer Center and it’s about the importance of cardiologists and oncologists working together when treating cancer because some of the medications can actually cause heart disease. Dr Michael Fradley, MD and Dr Roohi Ismail-Kahn are doing this. If you are on herceptin, anthracyclenes or taking radiation you need to read this story.

     Read “6 Heart Healthy Tips” and see if you are following them all. Taking vitamin D, drinking wine and having more sex are not that difficult, are they?

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesWhat Type of Exercise Is Best for Losing Weight? Premium Content in ArchivesSaturated Fatty Acids Directly Damage the Heart?. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     Our final report this week is “Wilms Study: Saving Kids, Saving Adults” from the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Norman Breslow, PhD has researched thousands of Wilms patients and he says 90 percent can be cured today.

And there's more where that came from...
