Medical Breakthroughs: First to Know

Propose Marriage or buy Krispy Kreme donuts today?

     For those of us who remember Sadie Hawkins, today is the day she caught her husband-to-be in the Al Capps cartoon. Sounds strange today, doesn’t it? I think I”d rather take Krispy Kreme up on their special offer all day today for an extra dozen donuts for just $2.29. I grew up with a Krispi Kreme store one block from my high school and nothing can make me pass that light in the window saying they have hot donuts coming out right now…in fact, I deliberately drive other ways so I can miss it because I do know my own weaknesses by now! But today I am headed straight over there…
     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:
  •      Allergy specialist Dr Deborah Gentile, MD at Alleghany Health Network in Pittsburgh is offering her patients a new treatment called sublingual immunotherapy or SLIT. She says , “The studies…suggest that three seasons worth of treatment will provide a lifelong cure.”
  •      Interventional Radiologist, David Prologo, MD at Emory School of Medicine is using cryoablation therapy to treat phantom limb pain.
  •      Professor of Neurology, Thomas Scott, MD at Drexel Univ School of Medicine is treating MS with a new drug that may stop and even reverse it. Dr Scott says seventy percent of the patients who were on Lemtrada for clinical trials are still in remission five years later.
     Our first special report is “Urolift Fixes Enlarged Prostate” and our second one is the full length interview with Dr Dennis Dass, MD and Board Cerfified Plastic Surgeon about a new fat melting technology that has just been FDA-approved called SculpSure Fat Melter.
     My favorite story this week is “Mcbaine Sniffs Out Ovarian Cancer” at Penn Vet Working Dog Center. The Penn Vet doctors teamed up with Monell Chemical Senses Center to study whether and how dogs sniff out ovarian cancer.

“While some smart people will profit from all the information now just a click away, many will be misled into a false sense of expertise. My worry is not that we are losing the ability to make up our own minds, but that it’s becoming too easy to do so.”
-- David Dunning, Cornell professor who studies ignorance, in “The man who studies the spread of ignorance,” BBC, Jan. 6, 2016
