Better classification of dry eye disease will aid diagnosis, Tx

(HealthDay)—Attention to the subtypes of dry eye disease may better equip clinicians to diagnose and treat cases, according to a review article recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Janine A. Clayton, M.D., from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., conducted a literature review to describe current knowledge of the causes and treatment of dry eye, ongoing research, and future directions for advancing knowledge and treatment of the condition. Clayton explains that dry eye has many causes. It can occur with other conditions, as a consequence of environmental triggers, or as a side effect of medications,...

Influential U.S. panel backs PrEP HIV-prevention pills

(HealthDay)—For the first time, a highly influential panel of experts says doctors should offer a daily pill to prevent HIV transmission to people who are at high risk for infection with the AIDS-causing virus. This treatment is called pre-exposure prophylaxis—PrEP for short—and it has been shown to be highly effective at preventing HIV's spread, concluded the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. USPSTF panels regularly convene to issue evidence-based guidance on a wide variety of medical matters. Their advisories help inform care and insurance coverage. The benefits of taking PrEP far outweigh the risks, which can include kidney problems and nausea,...

Teen personality traits linked to risk of death from any cause 50 years later

Personality traits evident as early as the teenage years may be linked to a heightened or lessened risk of death around 50 years later, suggests observational research of 'baby boomers,' published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health. Energy, calmness, empathy, maturity and intellectual curiosity may be protective, while impulsivity may harm the chances of longevity, the findings indicate. Previous research suggests that traits in mid-life may predict the probability of dying earlier or later. But it's not clear if the potential seeds of this association might go back even further, as has already been suggested for IQ...

Aftermath of EU referendum linked to rise in antidepressant prescribing in England

Antidepressant prescribing in England rose relative to other types of drug in the immediate aftermath of the results of the European Union referendum in June 2016, when Britons voted in favor of Brexit, reveals research published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health. While this finding is open to interpretation, the trend might have been prompted by the increased uncertainty experienced by some sectors of the population, in the wake of the vote, suggest the researchers. Mental service provision may need to be strengthened during such periods they add. When the UK voted to leave the EU on...

Pace of US smoking rate decline mirrors rapid rise in popularity of vaping

The pace of the fall in smoking prevalence among teens and young adults in the US has mirrored the rapid rise in popularity of e-cigarettes, suggesting that the two may be linked, finds research published online in the journal Tobacco Control. While trying may prompt some to take up at the individual level, there is little evidence that this is the case at the , conclude the researchers. And these findings are consistent over several years, they emphasise. Earlier this year, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine published a report which concluded there was "substantial evidence" that among...

Families Push Officials to Tackle Mystery of AFM

Nov. 20, 2018 -- Katie and J.P. Bustamante’s youngest son, Alex, died at the age of 6 -- a year and a half after contracting acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. For the California couple, their child caught what they thought was just a cold, only to realize days later it is actually a rare and mysterious polio-like illness. First, it paralyzed their son at a shocking speed. Eventually, the family says, it killed him. Doctors, they say, never did understand what was happening to their boy or what to do about it. “There never was a consensus on how to...

CDC: Don’t Eat Any Romaine Lettuce, Throw It Out

Nov. 20, 2018 -- Just in time for Thanksgiving, the CDC says don’t eat any romaine lettuce and throw it away if it’s in your house. It could cause an E. coli infection. The CDC says stores and restaurants should also not serve or sell any until more about the outbreak is known. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available. In this case, romaine lettuce means any kind of romaine: whole heads, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring...
