Bastian Teak medicine cabinets.

The mirror can detach and fall from the medicine cabinet door, posing an injury hazard.

4 Questions with Marietta director of sports medicine Jeff Hopp

2. The committee has met for a number of weeks now, often with significant news announced later that day or the next by Robin Hines, the GHSA’s executive director. What are those meetings like? Have there been times when the group was far apart on how to proceed, or how fast or how cautiously to open? “The SMAC has met virtually on a weekly basis for the last few months. We are looking at data from the CDC, Georgia Department of Public Health and other sources as well as the latest research. We are hearing from members of the committee on what is happening at their facilities or schools. GHSA also updates us on what is being reported from all the member schools. With that many people (about 15) from all over the state on the committee, there are always differing opinions. However, we all have the same goal of

Kawann Short

The Panthers’ Kawann Short, an E.C. Central grad, has played a key role on the defensive line.

Jim Hunsley

The big, bold and colorful mural on the outside wall of Columbus Drive Gyros hits you like a storm surge while entering the building.

It’s a life-size painting of hometown hero Kawann Short, defensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers, in his No. 99 uniform and holding the Super Bowl 50 trophy triumphantly in his right hand, an event that was not to be.

Throughout Northwest Indiana, there were banners, posters and pep rallies throughout the city in support of the E.C. Central grad. Social media kept him in touch daily with the Region, as if he were standing at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Indianapolis Boulevard, taking it all in.

One particular banner stretched across Columbus Drive at Alder Street, proclaimed: “East Chicago is proud of our hometown Kawann Short.

Bayshore recalls diabetes drug metformin for carcinogen

jhon pablo

Two lots of Type 2 diabetes drug metformin made by Bayshore Pharmaceuticals have been recalled for having more carcinogen NDMA than the FDA’s acceptable daily allowance.

The lots were sold to wholesalers and distributors nationwide, Bayshore’s FDA-posted recall notice says, so many different retailers might be involved. This is a check-your-label-and-bottle situation.

Those bottles of Metformin Hydrochloride Extended-release tablets will say either they’re filled with 1,000 tablets, 500 mg strength, lot No. 18641; or, 100 tablets, 750 mg strength, lot No. 18657, in 100-count bottles. The expiration date for each lot is May 2021.

The FDA tested the 500 mg lot and Bayshore testing turned up the problem in the 750 mg lot. Several makers’ metformin have been recalled this year for too much NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine).

Patients can keep taking the metformin until they come up with another treatment course in consultation with their doctor, pharmacist or medical professional.

Medicine, the practice concerned with the maintenance of health and the prevention, alleviation, or cure of disease.

The World Health Organization at its 1978 international conference held in the Soviet Union produced the Alma-Ata Health Declaration, which was designed to serve governments as a basis for planning health care that would reach people at all levels of society. The declaration reaffirmed that

health, which is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, is a fundamental human right and that the attainment of the highest possible level of health is a most important world-wide social goal whose realization requires the action of many other social and economic sectors in addition to the health sector.

In its widest form, the practice of medicine—that is to say, the promotion and care of health—is concerned

Upon welcoming an inaugural class of 64 students in August 2013, the University of New England College of Dental Medicine became the first dental college in Northern New England. Shortly thereafter, the College dedicated its gleaming new Oral Health Center on UNE’s Portland Campus.

SARS-CoV-2 entry factors are highly expressed in nasal epithelial cells together with innate immune genes

jhon pablo

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)1. Detection of the virus was first reported in Wuhan2, China and has since spread worldwide, emerging as a global pandemic3.

In symptomatic patients, nasal swabs have yielded higher viral loads than throat swabs4. The same distribution was observed in an asymptomatic patient4, implicating the nasal epithelium as a portal for initial infection and transmission. Cellular entry of coronaviruses depends on the binding of the spike (S) protein to a specific cellular receptor and subsequent S protein priming by cellular proteases. Similarly to SARS-CoV5,6, SARS-CoV-2 employs ACE2 as a receptor for cellular entry. The binding affinity of the S protein and ACE2 was found to be a major determinant of SARS-CoV replication rate and disease severity4,7. Viral entry also depends on TMPRSS2

The History of Medicine: 7 Surprising Facts

jhon pablo

Maintaining a comfortable state of health is a goal shared by much of the world’s population past and present, thus the history of health and medicine weaves a thread connecting us with our ancestors’ human experiences. Yet it’s easy to assume that studying it involves either celebrating the ‘eureka moments’ of well-known heroes or laughing at outdated therapies. But, as I set out to show in my book, The History of Medicine in 100 Facts (Amberley Publishing, 2015), medicine’s past features plenty of lesser-known but equally fascinating episodes…

Saqqara is a huge archaeological site about 20 miles south of present-day Cairo. Five millennia ago it was the necropolis for the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis, and remains home to one of the oldest surviving buildings in the world – the step pyramid of Djoser.
