Black men less willing to be investigated for prostate cancer
The incidence of prostate cancer among men of Afro-Caribbean origin is higher than in white men, they are more likely to be diagnosed as emergencies and their mortality rates are higher. Until now, it has been unclear why these disappointing outcomes exist. Researchers at the Universities of Exeter, Bristol and College London studied the preferences and choice of more than 500 men who were presented with a realistic hypothetical prostate cancer investigation scenario while attending general practices in Bristol.

Laughter is the best medicine for jittery dental students
Seven students in a classroom at the UCLA School of Dentistry are cracking each other up.  In a course far removed from “The Fundamentals of Caries” and “Oral Pathology,” dental students pair off and take turns improvising scenes based on characters and situations suggested by their instructor and fellow classmates. Two students role-play madcap bank robbers. Another pair pretends to be obsessive-compulsive campers gushing over the high thread count of their bed sheets. Then there are the lovers who, stunned at the revelation that they have syphilis, respond by microwaving popcorn and tuning into Netflix. It’s ...

Management consultants “only partly successful” in improving the quality of NHS commissioning

Despite The Stereotype, Study Suggests Doctors Are Not More Likely To Divorce
Anupam B. Jena, an assistant professor of health care policy and medicine at Harvard Medical School, couldn't escape the jokes about doctors and divorce -- the long-held belief that physicians' stress levels and long, irregular hours can ruin a marriage.

Divorce is actually less common among doctors than other professions, according to Jena's new study published in the journal The BMJ. He and his fellow researchers looked at census data from 48,881 physicians, 10,086 dentists, 13,883 pharmacists, 159,044 nurses, 18,920 healthcare ...

Cutting-edge technology optimizes cancer therapy with nanomedicine drug combinations
This study has the capacity to turn drug development, nano or non-nano, upside-down,” he said. “Even though FSC.II now enables us to rapidly identify optimized drug combinations, it’s not just about the speed of discovering new combinations. It’s the systematic way that we can control and optimize different therapeutic outcomes to design the most effective medicines possible.” The study found that FSC.II-optimized drug combinations that used nanodiamonds were safer and more effective than optimized drug-only combinations.
