WASHINGTON — In this video, Christopher F. Freer, DO, co-chair of the Tackling Addiction Task Force and system director of emergency medicine at RWJBarnabas Health, discusses efforts within his health care system to combat the opioid epidemic. Peer recovery specialists are an “intricate part” of these efforts, according to Freer, who is also chairman of the ED at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. These specialists are survivors of substance use disorders who assist patients at the bedside with managing opioid addiction. Freer also discusses the role of primary care providers in.

A moderate-intensity exercise regimen appeared to improve skeletal muscle microvasculature among patients with sickle cell disease, according to results of a randomized trial published in Blood. The regimen also appeared to partially reverse microvascular deficits frequently observed in these patients. The study adds to a growing body of research that suggests limited exercise may benefit patients with sickle cell disease, many of whom are told to avoid such activity because of risks for heart problems and vaso-occlusive crises, researchers noted. “When physical exercise is tailored to be.

HOUSTON — Researchers found no differences in outcomes between liver transplant recipients with a penicillin allergy label and matched controls, according to findings presented at the American College of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology Science Meeting. “In our cohort, having a penicillin allergy label did not impact outcomes in liver transplant recipients,” Gabriel Motoa Cardona, MD, a researcher in the division of pulmonology, allergy and sleep medicine at the Mayo Clinic Florida, said during the presentation. Cardona presented findings from a study looking at reduction of.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — There is an association between certain types of commensal urinary microbiome bacteria found in the urinary tract and a clinical response to bacillus Calmette-Guérin immunotherapy for patients with early-stage urothelial bladder cancer, according to results of an investigator-initiated, single institution pilot study presented at Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer Annual Meeting.

ATLANTA — Results of a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial showed a clear benefit of tofacitinib in controlling disease flares in juvenile idiopathic arthritis, according to a speaker at ACR/ARP 2019. Hermine Brunner, MD, MSc, director of the division of rheumatology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, addressed the need for novel therapies in JIA, particularly those that can be ingested orally, in an interview with Healio Rheumatology. “The oral formulation is appealing to children because currently available advanced medications for children.

An increased incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases is associated with an increase in proposed bills restricting vaccine exemptions, according to study findings published in JAMA Pediatrics. Specifically, researchers found that each standard deviation increase in vaccine-preventable diseases per 100,000 people was associated with 54% more proposed bills (95% CI, 27%-88%). Neal D. Goldstein, PhD, MBI, assistant research professor of epidemiology at Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health, and colleagues analyzed instances of vaccine-preventable diseases reported to the National.

A C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health demonstrated that one in four adolescents in middle and high school knows a peer with depression, and one in 10 knows a peer who has committed suicide. In addition, the results showed that although most parents reported feeling confident that they could recognize the signs and symptoms of depression in their children, two-thirds reported barriers that could hinder recognition. “I think these findings show that many parents are feeling uncertain,” Sarah J. Clark, MPH, codirector of the Mott poll, told.

SAN ANTONIO — A post hoc analysis evaluating the safety of Xeljanz in ulcerative colitis revealed comparable incidence rates of pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis in patients who did and did not receive the agent. However, researchers at the American College of Gastroenterology Annual Meeting stressed the need for more data to better understand the link between the agent and venous thromboembolic events after previous safety signals led to a change in prescribing guidelines in the United States. “On one level, these data are somewhat reassuring,” William J. Sandborn,

Study findings demonstrated the long-term presence of Ebola RNA in breast milk and semen samples from survivors of the West African epidemic, including almost 10% of male survivors who tested positive in at least one semen sample. Researchers detected Ebola RNA only rarely in breast milk and two other body fluids, saliva and urine. The presence of Ebola RNA was detected in the semen of one survivor for 512 days. “The majority of data on persistence of Ebola virus or RNA are from semen. Here, we studied —for the first time — large numbers of samples from other body fluids, in.

Among a cohort of adults with type 2 diabetes, HbA1c and fasting plasma glucose were effectively reduced via treatment with the small-molecule glucagon receptor antagonist RVT-1502, according to findings published in Diabetes Care. “Glucagon receptor antagonism to treat hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes by reducing hepatic glucose production has been pursued for several decades, but no drugs with this mechanism of action are currently available for clinical use,” Jeremy H. Pettus, MD, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the University of California, San Diego, and colleagues.

ATLANTA — Children with Down syndrome are at an increased risk for arthritis at a rate that is two to three times higher than previously reported, according to data presented here. However, diagnosis is often delayed for myriad reasons. “Children with Down syndrome ... have an increased risk of a number of medical conditions. For example, over 50% will be born with congenital heart disease, and they have an increased risk for autoimmune diseases,” Charlene Foley, MBBS BSc, MRCPCH, PhD, clinical researcher at the National Centre for Pediatric Rheumatology at Our Lady’s.

NEW YORK — Epi-Bowman keratectomy removes a patient’s epithelium in layers as atraumatically as possible during surface ablation and can reduce irregular ablation rates when compared with PRK, according to a speaker here. “The learning curve [with EBK] is zero. The basement membrane is spared, as well as Bowman’s layer. Because the epithelium is coming up in sheets, there is minimal rupture of the epithelial cell membranes,” Marguerite B. McDonald, MD, FACS, said at OSN New York 2019. The epi-Bowman keratectomy (EBK) device allows a surgeon to create an optimized.

Ibrutinib, a paradigm-changing drug for the treatment of various blood cancers, appeared to be more closely associated with new or worsened hypertension than previously thought, according to results of a study published in Blood. Researchers also found that patients with B-cell malignancies who experienced hypertension associated with ibrutinib (Imbruvica; Pharmacyclics, Janssen) were more than twice as likely to develop heart problems, including arrhythmias, compared with those without new-onset or worsening hypertension. “We noticed in our clinical practice that there seemed to be a.

According to study results, the MRI oblique trochlear view accurately evaluates trochlear morphology and better characterizes trochlear dysplasia in patients with patellofemoral instability compared with the standard MRI axial sequences. “Standard axial MRI cuts are perpendicular to the femoral shaft and provide meaningful images of the proximal trochlea,” Jack Farr, MD, told “However, for the mid and distal aspects, as the trochlea curves posteriorly, the cut becomes oblique and less clear. Using an oblique imaging cut improves the clarity of the mid.

PHILADELPHIA — Health care professionals’ decision-making processes may contribute to racial disparities in HF treatment. Researchers asked 422 physicians, nurses and other health care professionals to determine whether hypothetical black and white male patients should be referred for a heart transplant after reviewing patient photos and other health information. The hypothetical cases had identical medical and social history; the only variant was race. Survey responses suggested no difference in overall racial ratings for advanced HF therapies, according to the results. The.
