ACP Internist: Genomics making warfarin easier to manage

Finally, in the specific case of warfarin, we are expecting the approval of two if not three new oral anticoagulants that will not require any INR testing at all. Warfarin genetic testing is solving a clinical problem that may not exist in a few years. I would prefer we devote our precious health research resources to creating tests that actually benefit doctors and patients, not just ones that enrich the testing companies.

Legislation Watch: Crimes Amendment (Forensic Procedures) Bill 2010

Elucubrator,  7 October 2010 12:54 PM I'm not sure of the purpose of this Bill: it smacks a little of grandstanding. Today is the last day that Parliament sits before the election is held on 24 November, when the Parliament is prorogued. At Bills before the House will then lapse, and must be re-introduced in the next session. That is — back to square one for the whole process. Perhaps the ALP is just testing the water? Dr Manhattan,  7 October 2010 1:55 PM Don't know, but I suspect you're right about the trial balloon. When introducing the Bill, Rob Hulls left open the door to either [more...]

Kazakhs Striving to Prove Genghis Khan Descent -- Signs of the ...

Arman Ahmuhanov, a 39-year-old horse trader from Almaty, recently sent a sample to FamilytreeDNA, a company in Houston, after being encouraged to do so by Chingizids' author Gizat Tabuldin. "He said 'If you want to be respected, and you want to know that you are really chingizid , then you have to have real proof,'" said Mr Amerkulov. Genghis Khan's conquest of a vast swathe of Eurasia has made his name synonymous with destruction and brutality in Europe and the Middle East, but in Kazakhstan and Mongolia he is a hero. Since Kazakhstan's independence in 1991, the [more...]

SBI Policy Favoring Prosecution Was in Writing | Raleigh Criminal ...

When a Raleigh newspaper reported this past summer that analysts in the crime lab of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation routinely withheld test results favorable to the defendant, the scientific community and defense attorneys urged the state to make the crime lab independent of the state's law enforcement agency. Those efforts may be redoubled in light of recent revelations. This week, the newspaper reported that it was not only the practice for analysts to withhold possibly exculpatory evidence, it was also the policy. According to the audit conducted in August, the SBI had [more...]

An ISET Healthcare portal for medical professionals in the Middle East Wednesday 13th October 2010 Anna McNaughton fell in love with the West Sussex seaside town of Worthing when she moved there two years ago. It’s a stone’s throw from Brighton, around an hour by train from London, and its bars, cafes and restaurants are edged by a tree-lined promenade. Having had a room in a shared house since moving, the 23-year-old wants her own space. The fact that McNaughton has no recognisable speech and is a profoundly physically disabled wheelchair-user doesn’t stop her feeling passionately [more...]

OGDEN -- When people have knee surgery and can't afford equipment to temporarily help them get around, they can check out what they need at the Tri-County Independent Living Center loan bank. They'll be assisted by Josh Rhees to get their walkers, wheelchairs and shower chairs. Rhees, who has cerebral palsy, works part time at the center as the data entry person for the loan bank. At 35, he's a father and stepfather of five, and he maintains his independence with his job as well as a government physical disabilities waiver.

Advocates discuss protecting streams and restoring rivers « New ...

Because testing for pharmaceuticals is expensive—about $800 per test— they sampled for pharmaceuticals at only three sites. These included the Angosturo Diversion Dam north of Albuquerque, where the river crosses beneath Interstate-25, and near the National Hispanic Cultural Center. “We found pharmaceuticals at all three sites, during all five sampling events,” said Jensen, who pointed out that these ranged from DEET and the active ingredient in sunscreen to anti-seizure medication, Tylenol and caffeine.  The levels they noted, he said, were comparable to those found during a US [more...]

Loren Weisman's Realistic Music Careers 101: Blog: The list of ...

Hearing a two-hundred thousand dollar recording when you're after a budget that is ten percent of that or less is the equivalent of a car salesman saying, “Hey, I know your price range is a Hyundai but let's test drive the BMW to give you a sense of it.” That makes no sense does it? Would you test drive the BMW? Hell, no. You'd find a salesman who actually listened to what you wanted and could afford. When a studio says that this band or that band recorded there, make sure you know the details. Just because someone has recorded in a room or a studio or worked with a producer or [more...]

Poli-Tea: Poll: Majority Support for Third Party Alternative to ...

His Republican opponent, Dan Webster, didn't attend. . . . Grayson shared the stage with Peg Dunmire of the Florida Tea Party; George Metcalfe, an independent; and Steven Gerritzen, a write-in candidate from the Whig Party. Webster cited a scheduling conflict in not attending the debate sponsored by the Central Florida Urban League at the Citrus Bowl's Varsity Club. But his campaign has also made it clear that he won't debate unless the match-up includes only him and Grayson.So the Republican, Dan Webster, states that he couldn't attend because of a scheduling conflict, but it turns out that [more...]

UBS Americas Unit More Independent Under McCann

The test now is how this new independence feeds the unit's bottom line. "If he can turn it into a profitable machine, he can use the proceeds for investing back in his own business, rather than relying on money from Switzerland every quarter," Pirker says. There has long been speculation that UBS might sell or spin off its U.S. unit at some point, and its greater independence is hardly likely to discourage that talk among its 6,760 advisors. But a UBS spokeswoman insisted, "This has never been part of the strategy, and it should not be used to confuse the market or our employees." A [more...]

Independent Lab To Test Sun Mountain Sports RainFlex Gear - News ...

A Missoula sports gear company is counting on independent researchers to explain why its rain gear apparently didn't work.The U.S. Ryder Cup Team used Sun Mountain Sports rain suits, but team members ditched the gear after claiming it didn't withstand the torrential downpour in Wales last week.It turned into an international public relations nightmare. But, now, some are blaming the woman who designed the suits. It turns out the team captain's wife, Lisa Pavin, apparently wanted players' names and stripes embroidered on the gear. One news article argues that embroidery left dozens of holes in [more...]

DNA testing for warfarin | interactmd.com

Lovenox is $90 a shot, two shots a day, as opposed to warfarin, which is $4 a month.  So if you need an extra five days of lovenox to wait for the results of warfarin genetic testing, that's another $900 per patient. In other words, what are doctors supposed to do while waiting to put their patients on warfarin?  We usually use lovenox in that setting, but if we are having to wait an extra several days to get a technical test result back, we've lost a lot of the incremental benefit. Another way of thinking about this is that Medco is trying to make an economic argument in favor of genetic [more...]

New DNA Testing in Texas Case of Possibly Innocent Man Already ...

CNN has more on this developing story. After nearly eight months of deliberation, Judge Paul Murphy ruled on June 11 that Jones' father Claude, executed in 2000 for the murder of a Point Blank, Texas, liquor-store owner, should have another day in court. Specifically, that the only physical evidence linking Jones to the crime — a one-inch piece of hair that somehow survived a destruction order years ago — had to be preserved, against the wishes of San Jacinto County, and transferred to an independent forensics laboratory for DNA testing that wasn't available during the original trial.

Driving test change introduces 'independent' section

"The test is being improved to help produce safer drivers, but that doesn't mean it's getting any harder. We know many instructors are already teaching independent driving." 'Necessary skills' Peter Rodger, chief examiner of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, welcomed the change and said it would indicate how candidates coped with "an integral part of day-to-day driving". But he urged the DSA to make testing on rural roads a compulsory element of the test, saying research has shown up to 75% of accidents take place there. Road safety minister Mike Penning said: "We want all new drivers [more...]

Bats Left/Throws Right: That's Edu-tainment!

We'd like to see her do it with independent observers there to make sure she isn't teaching to the test, and others making sure that Joel Klein isn't dumbing down the test itself. We wanna see her live on the income, make herself available 24/7 for student and parent calls, and have her pay cut at the whim of her boss, then be fired because she's accrued seniority. We still wouldn't believe her; that much is already settled. We just think it would be a good first step, like giving Eric Erickson and Jonah Goldberg fifteen-month hitches as forward artillery spotters, or putting a banker in [more...]
