How social media facilitates peer review
Much has been written about how Web 2.0 tools can change the healthcare landscape.  It would appear a recent set of circumstances has upped the ante. This story begins with a recent study that attempted to tackle the problem of ICU infections. ICU infections are a challenging problem, patients who are admitted to the ICU are at risk of worsening illness and death from infections such as MRSA which can be acquired while in the ICU setting. To counteract this risk, current practice is the performance of surveillance cultures on people who are admitted to intensive care. If the person tests positive for certain infections th...

Penn State Getting Huge Computer Screen to Collaborate on Health Science Research
Life science research often involves analyzing large quantities of data, but being to simultaneously visualize different charts, graphs, images, and photos can be a challenge. To help present all this information in a comprehensive way to groups of people, the Millennium Science Complex at Penn State just got a huge high resolution video wall. The screen is 7 feet x 13 feet (2.1 m x 4 m) and it’s soon to get touch functionality, so that it will operate like a gigantic tablet. The wall consists of 16 individual panels that work as one screen and can be manipulated by different people at the same time for each to sha...

Institute Urging Pregnant Women To Be Positive They’re Hiv Negative
The test is first offered to pregnant women in the first prenatal screening. I think that anyone who finds out that theyre pregnant is wanting the best health for their baby and so will take the steps possible in order to prevent that transmission if theyre given the information and provided care that does not include stigma and discrimination, said Eaton. If you are HIV positive and aware of this while pregnant, officials say there are very good prevention strategies to reduce the risk of transmission to your unborn baby. Without these prevention strategies the risk of mother-to-baby transmission is about 25 per cent but ...

Vaccines: An unprecedented use of state power?
One aspect of the endless vaccine debate is the aspect of coercion some parents feel about requiring children to be vaccinated before they can go to school. The government mandates vaccination. But this isn’t really an absolute requirement. Although all 50 states ostensibly require vaccination, all but 2  (Mississippi and West Virginia) allow parents to opt out for religious reasons, and 19 states allow this for philosophical reasons. (See here for a list.) Still, in general vaccines are required unless the child has a medical reason not to get them, such as having a problem with the immune system. Is this an unpreced...

Reel Bio-Horror
Victoria Sutton of Texas Tech very kindly put her new book, Reel Bio-Horror: The Things That Keep Us Up at Night, on the Biolaw bookshelf. The book has its own website and a Facebook fan page. It covers the genre of biohorror and biothriller movies, which depict infectious diseases, whether used as weapons or simply beyond human control, that wreak havoc and spawn terror. Vickie calls these movies "petri dish movies," by analogy to spaghetti Westerns. Naturally, the book has its own cinematic preview. I embed it below. Enjoy!

I would bet that most people in the US still think our health care system is highly regulated.  Some may thus conclude that the system is basically safe, because, for example, drugs have to be proven safe and effective to be approved by the government, and hospitals must be licensed and run by competent people who are thoroughly vetted.  Of course, some people still think that the US has, or had until recently, the best health care system in the world (look here).Furthermore, the view that less regulation is always better is no quite popular in the US and elsewhere.  For example, after the chemical spill thr...
