Does Price Disclosure Make a Difference in High Drug Prices?

Drug prices and disclosure

Medication prices continue to rise faster than many people can keep up with. Long told that pharmaceutical companies needed to recoup their costs from research and development, recent studies have found this is not true. The price of research and development are often covered within the first few years the medication is released to the public. The companies, however, rarely lower the retail price they charge the patients who are in need of the medicine.

When Shameless Husband Tells His Wife He Is Not Attracted To Her Because of Her Weight

A few days ago I read a Facebook post by a young woman who wrote that her husband no longer wants to be married to her because he is not attracted to her and her weight is the issue. The woman had her picture posted and she looked slightly overweight. If the weight is the only issue then this is called shameless and irresponsible behavior. Let's call things by their proper names.

Fructose Connection with Kidney Function

Kidney doctor

With a rise in kidney illnesses, it is more important than ever to look for the underlying causes to slow its occurrence. One of the easiest ways we can influence our kidney function is to be mindful of how much sugary drinks like soda (soft drinks) we consume on a daily basis. This can decrease our propensity for obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders that can place undue stress on our kidneys.

Attempts to Find New Treatments and Better Understanding of Schizophrenia

Human brain

A large group of researchers have uncovered a novel mechanism of neurotransmitters is released in the brain during schizophrenia. This elevated protein was noted not only schizophrenia but also other mental illnesses. the study was the first to study the relationship between mental illness and the level of protein. This is important as schizophrenia affects nearly one in 100 American adults and remains poorly understood.

Brain size and Schizophrenia

In the picture above, the different lobes of the brain are color coded. According to the studies found concerning brain volume and schizophrenia, there are two main areas affected. These areas are colored green and the blue lobe that borders on the green. This illustrates why it is so important for research to continue in order to help those afflicted with schizophrenia as it is a lifelong disorder.

Workout Tips If You Are In a Competition To Lose Weight

Workout Exercise for weight loss competition

Weight loss competitions like the Biggest Loser are becoming very popular. I know a workplace where the staff members have a chart and each puts down 25 dollars and they compete to lose weigh by a specific date. However, it looks like friends do that too. Today in one of the largest weight loss groups on Facebook I read this message: "Me and my boyfriend are having a competition on who can loose more weight before February. I am in need of workout tips."

Autophagy: Potential target for treating neurodegenerative disorders

Neurodegenerative disorders targeting

Autophagy is a dynamic cellular pathway involved in the turn over of proteins, protein complexes, and organelles through lysosomal degradation. Defects in autophagy affect the intercellular communication and subsequently contributing to neurodegeneration. The presence of abnormal autophagy activity is frequently observed in selective neuronal populations in neurodegeneration seen in diseases like ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's disease.

Genetic Links Found for Autism and Schizophrenia

Mental health and human brain

Since the completion of the human genome project, researchers have been discovering changes to hundreds of places in the DNA. Some of these variants have been associated with psychiatric diseases such as autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. Researchers have found a roadmap for the development of new generation therapy for psychiatric conditions. In the last decade, scientists have conducted genetic studies of people with a psychiatric disease, comparing results to healthy individuals to find genes that have different sequencing in those diseases. This paper helps to explain the roles of tens of thousands of sections of regulatory DNA and proteins in the brain. Once again this study is but a jumping off place for further studies (Geschwind et al, 2018). Dendritic structure (dendrite is a short branched extension of a nerve cell along which impulses received from other cells at synapses are transmitted to the cell body) is tightly coupled with synaptic function in basal conditions. Many brain disorders are associated with an aberrant regulation of F-actin and impaired signaling. These alterations likely underlie the aberrant spine morphology found in these disorders. Further studies on the mechanism of structural plasticity of dendritic spines will provide new therapeutic targets and methods for the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders (Borovac et al, 2018).

Why Boscumin Is the Best Turmeric Supplement Available on the Market Today

Best Turmeric Supplement

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NIH), Americans spend over $30 billion annually on dietary supplements. More than 2/3 of adults are taking supplements, but the majority of them are unaware that the supplement industry is completely unregulated, sends over 20,000 people to the ER every year, and features misleading labels that frequently don’t actually contain what they claim as Dr. Sreek Cherukuri M.D. discovered in his research and will reveal in this interview. Dr. Cherukuri is working tirelessly to raise awareness about the unregulated and potentially hazardous supplements that may be posing danger to consumers. That’s why Dr. Cherukuri developed Boscumin, the first pharmaceutical-grade turmeric product available on the market today. In this article, we will explore why Boscumin is the best turmeric supplement available.

Wasp and Bee venom to fight antibiotic resistant organisms

Bee

Venomous animals are widely spread all over the globe. Several terrestrial vertebrates (reptiles, birds, insects, and mammals) are also venomous. Major arthropods (scorpions, bees, and wasps) have multicellular glands attached to the stinging apparatus. Bee venom obtained from stepwise fractionation has been reported to contain peptides (Prasasty et al, 2018). It has been known for many years that venom of insects like wasps and bees have compounds that can fight bacteria. Along with that, however, for many humans, these same insect venoms cause toxic reactions so without some kind of refinement was needed. researchers at MIT took the toxin from a South American wasp and created variants of the peptide that are potents against bacterial while nontoxic to human cells. As part of their immune defenses, many organisms produce peptides that can kill bacteria. To help fight the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, many scientists have been trying to adapt these peptides as potential drugs. The study found that the peptide from the venom is believed to kill microbes by disrupting the cell membranes on bacteria (Torres et al, 2018)

My Type 2 Diabetes Fuels My 70 Lbs Weight Loss Struggle, But I Am Hanging in There

Darryl Buck's 70 lbs weight loss

I have been on this rocky road since August to lose weight. I cut out all the junk. I did intermittent fasting, juicing and jogging. My cortisol levels are through the roof because of stress. I am struggling to maintain my weight loss, but hanging in there. The bitter harsh reality of being Type 2 diabetic keeps me going. I want to live longer. I want to be disease-free.

Connection between Vitamin D deficiency and neurological conditions

Vitamin D

Dementia is a syndrome usually progressive and chronic in nature. Global incidences of dementia is increasing at a rate of one new case every three seconds with associated medical social and health care costs far exceeding the capacity of most countries. Because of the degenerative nature of the disease sufferers lose their ability to perform routine tasks, experience poor quality of life and loss of autonomy. The role of vitamin D in the etiology of cognitive impairment and dementia is plausible and has been supported substantial mechanistic and epidemiological data. As people age, they tend to spend less and less time outdoors in the sun. It is of great importance as vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide pandemic and is seen most commonly in older adults residing in northerly latitudes, particularly during winter months. Further research needs to be done to see if increasing vitamin D level will improve cognitive health (Aspell, Lawlor, O'Sullivan, 2018).

Parkinson’s disease: What it is and possible treatment

Parkinson's disease is a prevalent disorder that affects approximately 40-1000 people per 100,000 with increased occurrence in older individuals. It is characterized by progressive neurodegeneration that can manifest in early stages as mild cognitive impairment and moderate motor dysfunction, rigidity and tremor. As the disease progresses, the severity escalates as well. This then includes falls, difficulty swallowing and neuropsychiatric complications including psychosis. this psychosis can occur in up to 75% of cases of this disease (Kitten et al, 2018).

Sickle Cell Anemia: Effects of the disease and potential treatment

human blood cells

This study found that a daily hydroxyurea pill may finally bring some relief for young children living with sickle cell anemia. This could be a big game changer for resource-challenged sub-Saharan Africa where the disease is prevalent and health care is suboptimal (Ware et al, 2018). Few studies had been done where the burden is greatest. The study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found treatment was feasible and safe in children living in the area of Africa most affected. It proved to reduce vaso-occlusive events, infections, malaria, transfusions, and death. These results illustrate a need for more access to treatments. In the US and Europe early identification of children with sickle cell by means of neonatal screening. This allows these children to be given simple effective, and lifesaving interventions (Tshilolo et al, 2018).
