Making the Right Match
Getting the right drug to the right person is a constant source of friction in pharma, whether for payers, manufacturers or, crucially, the patients themselves. In particular, those who suffer from life-threatening or debilitating diseases are often interested in drugs which are still in development – but getting access to these is fraught with difficulties. Matching up patients in desperate need with the products which could help – but which are not yet on the market - is a headache for a variety of reasons.

Antidepressants and pregnancy: More research needed
Follow me at @Drmoniquetello For many women, pregnancy and the arrival of a new baby is a joyous time — but not for every woman. Recently, postpartum depression — extreme feelings of sadness and anxiety following the birth of a child — has come out from the shadows. But what about depression during pregnancy? It’s more common than you think: as many as 14% to 23% of pregnant women will experience symptoms of depression. It’s of sufficient public health concern that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends screening all pregnant women and new moms for depression. However, treating depression during preg...

Diary of a PMS Sufferer
Approximately five days before my period, the backwards countdown begins and my entry into the bowels of PMS hell have commenced. Day 5: The telltale headache and lower back pain herald the descent. Physical pain, I can take. Physical pain, please stay. Physical pain, you are strong, please beat back the crushing negativity that comes unbidden, every month and robs me of my joy.

Magic mushroom ingredient tested as depression treatment
Conclusion Depression is a disabling disease that affects many people in the UK. While antidepressants and therapy work for many people, some people don't fully respond to treatment. A treatment for depression that uses a drug that works in a different way from existing antidepressants could be very helpful. Having said that, this study doesn't tell us whether psilocybin is a useful drug for treating depression. This was a very small, early-stage trial that only aimed to see whether the drug was safe and has potential for use – the researchers did not set out to see if the drug is effective for treating severe depressi...

A narrow band of green light could improve migraines
(Oxford University Press) Most migraine and post-traumatic headache sufferers find their headaches get worse in light, leading them to quit their most fundamental daily tasks and seek the comfort of darkness. A new study from Harvard Medical School reveals that exposing these headache sufferers to pure-wavelength green light significantly reduces their photophobia, or sensitivity to light, and can even reduce the severity of their headaches. The results publish today in Brain. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Quick Facts About Anxiety Disorders
Most people experience feelings of anxiety before an important event such as a big exam, business presentation, or first date. These are normal feelings of anxiety that nearly everyone experiences from time to time in their lives.

Tormented by panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, or countless frightening physical symptoms, some people with anxiety disorders even become housebound.

Moyamoya and childhood stroke: Catching up with Tyler and Ryan
Ryan (above left) and Tyler Earle of Winnipeg, Canada had a ticking time bomb inside their heads.

What Causes Pelvic Pain?
Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...
