Jack Researches Treatment Options for Polycythemia Vera After He Could Not Tolerate Hydroxyurea
 
07:47
A diagnosis of polycythemia vera (PV) prompted Jack to take an active role in his own care. Polycythemia vera is a rare and chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm (a blood cancer) in which the bone marrow makes too many red blood cells, along with white blood cells and/or platelets. The disease does not go away and may get worse over time. In this video, Jack describes the stages of his treatment regimen and how he responded to it. Learn what led him to research treatment options and enroll in a clinical trial. Are you living with polycythemia vera and have already taken a medicine called hydroxyurea and it did not work well enough or you could not tolerate it? Learn More Now! www.jakafi.com/polycythemia-vera.aspx Indications and Usage Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) is a prescription medicine used to treat people with polycythemia vera who have already taken a medicine called hydroxyurea and it did not work well enough or they could not tolerate it. Jakafi is also used to treat certain types of myelofibrosis. Important Safety Information Jakafi can cause serious side effects, including: Low blood counts: Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) may cause your platelet, red blood cell, or white blood cell counts to be lowered. If you develop bleeding, stop taking Jakafi and call your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will perform blood tests to check your blood counts before you start Jakafi and regularly during your treatment. Your healthcare provider may change your dose of Jakafi or stop your treatment based on the results of your blood tests. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you develop or have worsening symptoms such as unusual bleeding, bruising, tiredness, shortness of breath, or a fever. Infection: You may be at risk for developing a serious infection during treatment with Jakafi. Tell your healthcare provider if you develop any of the following symptoms of infection: chills, nausea, vomiting, aches, weakness, fever, painful skin rash or blisters. Skin cancers: Some people who take Jakafi have developed certain types of non-melanoma skin cancers. Tell your healthcare provider if you develop any new or changing skin lesions. Increases in cholesterol: You may have changes in your blood cholesterol levels. Your healthcare provider will do blood tests to check your cholesterol levels during your treatment with Jakafi. The most common side effects of Jakafi include: low platelet count, low red blood cell counts, bruising, dizziness, headache. These are not all the possible side effects of Jakafi. Ask your pharmacist or healthcare provider for more information. Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Ali El Marhabi, father of three children diagnosed with thalassemia: "I have three children, the fourth has passed away and if God wills it I will fight for these children. I was able to live in a room that costs fifteen thousand (riyals per month, 69.8 US dollars), as for work I don't have any pensions or anything. All I do is work hard for them and if there are any good willed people, they help us." 8.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Jameel Al Khayati, the manager of Yemeni Association for Thalassemia Patients and Genetic Blood Disorders: "The number of children who died because of thalassemia and genetic blood disorders has exceeded more than 100 (from late 2014 to the end of 2015). Children diagnosed with this disease die because of the lack of the main medicines needed that helps create stability in their life, to alleviate the pain, and most importantly the hydra (hydroxyurea, a treatment for sickle cell anaemia) and the medication that reduces the iron count. Lately, there hasn't been any medication entering the country or if allowed it would be very difficult. And the Ministry of Health does not have the potential to buy such medicines as it is very expensive. The situation we are in because of the siege, war and other things has caused the effect of the disease on children to increase." 16. Various of children in hospital beds LEADIN: Yemeni children with a potentially fatal blood disorder are struggling to find the medication they need to survive. The ongoing conflict is making it difficult for hospitals to get the drugs that treat thalassaemia. STORY LINE: Like all loving fathers, Ali El Marhabi worries about his children. But he has more reason to be concerned than most. His three children have been diagnosed with thalassaemia, a blood disorder that causes anaemia and reduces the blood's oxygen-carrying capacity. It can lead to organ damage, restricted growth, liver disease, heart failure and even death. El Marhabi has moved his family from the Hajjah governorate to Sanaa to find better medical treatment, but living conditions are tough. "If God wills it I will fight for these children," he says. "I was able to live in a room that costs fifteen thousand (riyals per month, 69.8 US dollars), as for work I don't have any pensions or anything. All I do is work hard for them and if there are any good willed people, they help us." To stay healthy, the children must head to the hospital once a fortnight to receive blood transfusions. Nine year-old Suleiman is the worst affected. He has thalassemia major and has had surgery to remove his damaged spleen. But the disorder is also giving him liver problems. Suleiman is treated by the Yemeni Thalassemia Association which offers its medical services free of charge. But the ongoing war means the organisation is struggling to secure the vital medication is needs for its patients. And the shortages are causing tragic consequences. The disorder is hereditary.

About Blood: Sickle Cell Disease
 
28:54
This half-hour television documentary explores how blood works in the body with a focus on sickle cell anemia, a genetic disease that affects red blood cells and is most common among African Americans. We tell the sickle cell story through the eyes of 25-year-old Akron resident, Arthur Brown, and his family. Brown was born with one of the most severe forms: when he was six-weeks old, his mother was told her infant son would likely not to survive to age five. We chronicle Brown's fight against this devastating disease from childhood to the present. Living and thriving as a young adult, Arthur Brown has come close to death more than once and shares his struggles and triumphs with a disease he considers to be both a curse and a gift.

MAJIC trial results: ruxolitinib compared to best available therapy for essential thrombocythemia
 
03:40
Claire Harrison, MD, DM, FRCP, FRCPath, of Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, discusses the MAJIC trial; the first randomized study comparing ruxolitinib to best available therapy in the UK for essential thrombocythemia (ISRCTN61925716). This is similar to studies that have been done in polycythemia vera (PV) and myelofibrosis, which looked at patients who were struggling with their current therapy, i.e. hydroxyethyl urea. Patients were randomized to receive either ruxolitinib or the best available therapy. Data presented at the EHA 2016 meeting demonstrated that the outcome with ruxolitinib is very similar to that with the best available therapy for controlling blood counts. Symptoms improved significantly in patients treated with ruxolitinib; however, there was also some increase in toxicity with regard to lowering of hemoglobin, anemia and infections. Data presented at the ASH meeting were analysed in more detail, looking at the occurrence of blood clotting, bleeding and transformation events. Further, Prof. Harrison highlights that they have performed next-generation sequencing (NGS) looking at allele burden and molecular responses, and correlating them to outcomes. The top-line data suggest that achieving molecular response doesn’t necessarily correlate with clinical response. However, it did correlate with aspects of symptom improvement. If a patient is anemic at the time of starting ruxolitinib, they are more likely to remain anemic or the anemia will get worse. Prof. Harrison also highlights that, although we know more about molecular responses now, we still need to do more research in order to understand the implications for disease management. Recorded at the 2016 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting, held in San Diego, CA.

The Double Burden of SICKLE-CELL DISEASE & Opportune Infections
 
06:16
Sickle-Cell disease by itself is a burden. Some of it's manifestations like excruciating pain - no human should go through. But imagine sickle cell with another disease, existing in the same body…the burden is worse. In this week's Health Focus, Florence Naluyimba talks about diseases like malaria, pneumonia or even HIV that sufferers should look out for in order to have good quality of life.

The N Engl J Med image of the week shows a color photo of a person’s lower extremities. We see a scaly erythematous rash with a bilateral distribution. The patient has weight loss and a pancreatic mass on CT. You are offered insulinoma, gastrinoma, glucagonoma, vipoma, and somatostatinoma. Only one of these neuroendocrine tumors is associated with a specific dermatitis. Subclinical thyroid disease during pregnancy may be associated with adverse outcomes, including a lower-than-normal IQ in offspring. It is unknown whether levothyroxine treatment of women who are identified as having subclinical hypothyroidism or hypothyroxinemia during pregnancy improves cognitive function in their children. We review the results of two parallel-randomized trials of these issues. Interleukin-31 may play a role in the pathobiologic mechanism of atopic dermatitis and pruritus. Investigators assessed the efficacy and safety of nemolizumab (CIM331), a humanized antibody against interleukin-31 receptor A, in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. In a phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 12-week trial, they assigned adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis that was inadequately controlled by topical treatments to receive subcutaneous nemolizumab (at a dose of 0.1 mg, 0.5 mg, or 2.0 mg per kilogram of body weight) or placebo every 4 weeks or an exploratory dose of 2.0 mg of nemolizumab per kilogram every 8 weeks. The dermatitis did not improve but there was less itching. Blinatumomab, a bispecific monoclonal antibody construct that enables CD3-positive T cells to recognize and eliminate CD19-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) blasts, was approved for use in patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell precursor ALL on the basis of single-group trials that showed efficacy and manageable toxic effects. We next learn that blinatumomab improves survival in adult ALL patients after relapse. A century ago, James Herrick identified the “peculiar elongated and sickle-shaped red blood cells” associated with the disorder. Herrick subsequently also showed that heart attack is caused by coronary artery occlusion. Hydroxyurea is the only treatment that improves outcomes in sickle-cell anemia, although not all patients respond. A gene therapy is needed. French investigators describe their first patient treated with lentiviral vector–mediated addition of an antisickling β-globin gene into autologous hematopoietic stem cells. Fifteen months after treatment, the level of therapeutic antisickling β-globin remained high (approximately 50% of β-like–globin chains) without recurrence of sickle crises and with correction of the biologic hallmarks of the disease. The N Engl J Med review is on the “informed consent” process. Here we learn that the erstwhile goal of protecting human subjects has largely changed to protect institutions and study sponsors. Thus, only lawyers can understand the pages and pages the patients have to sign. Another review is on patient-advocacy organizations. We learn that these patient rights groups are primarily industry sponsored and their boards of directors are often filled with former industry executives. Is this not a conflict of interests? The N Engl J Med patient of the week has a acute granulomatous liver disease. A transjugular liver-biopsy sample revealed a lymphohistiocytic infiltrate with small lobular and portal nonnecrotizing granulomas. Infection probably began with the inhalation of spores that originate in infected cattle, sheep, and goats. In the Lancet, investigators aimed to investigate whether oral methotrexate increases the efficacy of intra-articular corticosteroid therapy. It did. The efficacy of ceritinib in patients with untreated anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-rearranged non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is not known. We inspect a study of ceritinib that increased survival of these patients (barely P=0.0506). Bronchiolitis is the most common lung infection in infants and treatment focuses on management of respiratory distress and hypoxia. High-flow warm humidified oxygen is increasingly used, but has not been rigorously studied in randomized trials. We learn that oxygen via nasal cannula is just as good. The syndemics model of health focuses on the biosocial complex, which consists of interacting, co-present, or sequential diseases and the social and environmental factors that promote and enhance the negative effects of disease interaction. I had never heard of this word and could not find a German translation. I found out that the neologism “syndemic” refers to the aggregation of two or more diseases in a population in which there is some level of positive biological interaction that exacerbates the negative health effects of any or all of the diseases. We close with a 63-year-old man who presented to the department of dermatology and allergy in January, 2016, with a 32-year history of reddish-brown skin lesions, which had worsened over the preceding year.

Treatment For Psoriasis - How My Mom Beat Psoriasis For Good
 
03:53
http://www.dermasolve.com/indexSU.html There are several treatment for psoriasis and it all depends on the reaction of your body and the prior remedies you've made. It can be a start for a topical medicine applied to your skin and the next level involves remedies with ultraviolet light (phototherapy) and ultimately taking medicines internally. If the therapy became successful to a certain patient does not mean a success also to the second patient. Through this article will state to you a few of the immediate remedies research by dermatologist and surgeons. Treating a particular psoriasis will be an effort-and-error medication hinges upon the location of the infected area, the volume and the prior remedy you've made which induces your psoriasis condition. The first remedy that most patients of psoriasis get is the topical corticosteroids (topical steroids) and available over the counter upon prescription of your doctor with different strengths. The highest of all steroids are virtually a 1000 times stronger than the otc 1% hydrocortisone. It is these that are the Psorcon, Diprolene, Termovate, or Ultravate. The next therapy is a synthetic kind of vitamin D3 like Dovonex (clacipotriene). Regular vitamin D supplements cannot treat actually psoriasis and made use of in excess are dangerous. This ointment can be employed 2 times each day and it will control the abnormal manufacture of cells in psoriasis. The oldest and widely used treatments with no prescription needed and can be employed straight to your skin are the coal tars. Coal tar is safer than topical steroids but they are messy, smelly and less capable but it makes your skin more understanding of ultraviolet light. SCAT (Short Contact Anthralin Treatment), is a very old remedy for psoriasis but because of it stain skin and clothing brown or purple it became unfavorable. To limit the staining an especially washable form is used for a 15-30 minute application then wash with a lukewarm water. Salicylic acid is a non-prescription creams to remove scales mixed with topical steroids, anthralin or coal tar. Tazorac is a gel that can be efficient for psoriasis. It is also irritating when you apply it into your skin identical to the Dovonex. The advantage of this tazorac can clear psoriasis for a longer time of time compare to any other topical medicine. Upon using tazorac, you must unite this with topical steroids to minimize discomfort. Tazorac is not safe to all pregnant women. UVB Phototherapy uses a synthetic UVB light identical to sunshine rays. For more doctors, they advised to this therapy before applying any topical medications. The treatment will be carried out in your workplace or at home for three to five times weekly for twenty to thirty remedies overall. Soriatane is the most efficient vitamin A against pustular and erythrodemic psoriasis and it is also beneficial to any plaque psoriasis when you combined treatment with UVB. Methotrexate remedy can be taken pills, liquid or injection to operate the psoriasis. If you chose to use this therapy, you must closely monitor as it will in the end cause liver or blood producing bone marrow damage. If you are alcoholic cannot take this drug. Hydroxyurea is less toxic but not that effective also. Pregnant women or hoping to have an infant must avoid of using this sort of remedy. As a precautionary measure, before taking or deciding any of the above remedies must consult their skin doctor to help you determine what Psoriasis treatment can be created for you.

The N Engl J Med image of the week shows a tongue at different stages of the condition. Notably, no complaints are mentioned by the patient (perhaps there were none). Geographic tonuge, oral candidiasis, lichen planus, hairy leukoplakia and pemphigus vulgaris are in the differential diagnosis. We review these tongue conditions. Caplacizumab, an anti–von Willebrand-factor humanized single-variable-domain immunoglobulin (nanobody), inhibits the interaction between ultralarge von Willebrand factor multimers and platelets. In a phase 2, controlled study, investigators randomly assigned patients with acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura to subcutaneous caplacizumab (10 mg daily) or placebo during plasma exchange and for 30 days afterward. The primary endpoint was the time to a response, defined as confirmed normalization of the platelet count. Major secondary endpoints included exacerbations and relapses. The findings serve to elucidate thrombotic microangiopathy and could help those patients with deficiency of ADAMTS13. All say that the burden of dementia in old people is getting worse. Epidemiologists have addresed the issue. Participants in the Framingham Heart Study have been under surveillance for incident dementia since 1975. In this analysis, which included 5205 persons 60 years of age or older, epidemiologists used Cox proportional-hazards models adjusted for age and sex to determine the 5-year incidence of dementia during each of four epochs. They also explored the interactions between epoch and age, sex, apolipoprotein E ε4 status, and educational level. They examined the effects of these interactions, as well as the effects of vascular risk factors and cardiovascular disease, on temporal trends. The investigators found that oldsters are not becoming demented at the expected rate. Instead, the incidence of dementia seems to be decreasing. A new pacemaker technology is on the horizon. The Micra transcatheter pacing system, a leadless right ventricular pacemaker, was successfully implanted in 99.2% of 725 patients in whom implantation was attempted. The device met prespecified criteria for pacing capture threshold in 98.3% of the patients who were followed for 6 months. This follow-up study confirms the utility of the device. HIV-associated Cryptococal meningitis is generally treated with antimycotic drugs and corticosteroids so that the consequences of brain-stem inflammatory damage can be minimized. Data from TB patients support this strategy. We inspect a doubleblind trial testing corticosteroids against plebo in patients with Cryptococcal meningitis. Steroids did not help; as a matter of fact, the trial was stopped because the treatment made the disease worse. Antigen-driven selection has been implicated in the pathogenesis of monoclonal gammopathies. Gaucher’s disease is assoictated with the development of multiple myleomoa. An interesting paper suggests that long-term immune activation by lysolipids may underlie both Gaucher’s disease–associated gammopathies and some sporadic monoclonal gammopathies. The N Engl J Med review deals with urinary tract infection in elderly men. The case of the week is a woman with a cutaneous ulcer, lympadenopathy, and fever. She had spent much time out of doors in the woods of New England. Lancet investigators tested the effectiveness of the probiotic, Bifidobacterium breve BBG-001, to reduce necrotising enterocolitis, late-onset sepsis, and death in preterm infants. However, the strategy was a failure. The efficacy of hydroxycarbamide (hydroxyurea) in preventing stroke in sickle-cell anemia patients is unknown. Hydroxyurea as effective as transfusions. Treatment strategies in children with dermatomyositis have not been rigorously tested. A study suggests that combined treatment with prednisone and either ciclosporin or methotrexate at disease onset is more effective than prednisone alone. Finally, investigators assessed the safety and efficacy of the long-acting GLP-1 analogue, liraglutide, in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Liraglutide was safe, well tolerated, and led to histological resolution. We conclude with histiocytes in urine and subsequent systemic disease.

Keep Quacian Going

What would you do and how would you feel if you couldn't live your life to the fullest? Instead you wake up in pain, feel weak, and have to take the necessary precautions to prevent another medical crisis. Hello, my name is Quacian and this is my life in a nutshell. I was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia at the age of 3. Since then, I had to deal with a plethora of pain attacks and surgeries. Being diagnosed with this chronic illness is unbearable for me at times. However, with my attitude of determination, I always find ways to motivate myself, persevere, and manage to achieve great feats. My illness limits my ability to indulge in certain activities like going out and spending time with family and friends, playing sports, traveling, and working. One and a half years ago my doctor told me that my health took a turn for the worse, the experimental treatments would not work for me, and there was nothing more they could do. What would you do and how would you feel if you were told to leave school, go home, and enjoy what's left of your life? Imagine if doctors and nurses didn't believe you could be sick so often so they called you a drug addict because you are hospitalized once a month? Despite this, I ignored what the doctors said because I have faith in God and not man! I went back to school and earned my Bachelor's of Arts degree in 3 ½ years. I even spent, and continue to spend, my spare time serving mankind and giving back to communities through the work of my sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. My hope and fervent desire is to be healed. A Bone Marrow Transplant offers the only potential cure. I overcame one of the most difficult stages in the process, which is finding a donor. This procedure cost approximately $200,000. Even though I have insurance, it is not going to cover all of the expenses. Your donation would make a great impact in relieving a gigantic financial burden from my shoulders. Please help me so that I can live a normal healthy life.

Somebody needs to be the voice for us with sickle cell... i've been sufferening to long and silence and now i wanna be the voice for the one who cant or wont speak up... if you have any questions or just need somebody to talk to im hear for you. I hope I will be Successful in informing the world because knowleadge is power. what is sickle cell? Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder. Normally, red blood cells are disc-shaped and flexible. In sickle cell disease, however, hemoglobin (the chemical within red blood cells that carries oxygen around the body) is abnormal. This defect causes red blood cells to collapse into a crescent, or sickle, shape. These abnormal blood cells are destroyed at an unusually high rate, causing a shortage of red blood cells (anemia). In addition, they can suddenly clump together and clog up small blood vessels throughout the body. This clumping causes what is called a sickle cell crisis. When blood vessels are blocked by sickle-shaped red blood cells, parts of the body are deprived of oxygen. This can cause severe pain and damage to the organs and tissues that are deprived. Common triggers of sickle cell crisis include smoking, exercise, exposure to high altitudes, fever, infection, dehydration, and the drop in oxygen or changes in air pressure that can occur during airplane travel. Diagnosis of sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait (a condition in which a person has one of the two genes necessary to develop sickle cell disease) can be done through blood testing, using a technique called hemoglobin electrophoresis. Treatment involves managing the anemia, chronic pain, and organ damage caused by sickle cell disease. In addition, the drug hydroxyurea can reduce occurrences of sickle cell crisis. Of course, it is also important to minimize exposure to conditions or situations that can trigger sickle cell crisis.

What would you do and how would you feel if you couldn't live your life to the fullest? Instead you wake up in pain, feel weak, and have to take the necessary precautions to prevent another medical crisis. Hello, my name is Quacian and this is my life in a nutshell. I was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia at the age of 3. Since then, I had to deal with a plethora of pain attacks and surgeries. Being diagnosed with this chronic illness is unbearable for me at times. However, with my attitude of determination, I always find ways to motivate myself, persevere, and manage to achieve great feats. My illness limits my ability to indulge in certain activities like going out and spending time with family and friends, playing sports, traveling, and working. One and a half years ago my doctor told me that my health took a turn for the worse, the experimental treatments would not work for me, and there was nothing more they could do. What would you do and how would you feel if you were told to leave school, go home, and enjoy what's left of your life? Imagine if doctors and nurses didn't believe you could be sick so often so they called you a drug addict because you are hospitalized once a month? Despite this, I ignored what the doctors said because I have faith in God and not man! I went back to school and earned my Bachelor's of Arts degree in 3 ½ years. I even spent, and continue to spend, my spare time serving mankind and giving back to communities through the work of my sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. My hope and fervent desire is to be healed. A Bone Marrow Transplant offers the only potential cure. I overcame one of the most difficult stages in the process, which is finding a donor. This procedure cost approximately $200,000. Even though I have insurance, it is not going to cover all of the expenses. Your donation would make a great impact in relieving a gigantic financial burden from my shoulders. Please help me so that I can live a normal healthy life.

thought had somethen typed: Why did dr prescribe me valiums and pain killers knowing they are not good for anemic? an certain medications cause a person to become anemic? Yes, medications can cause anemia for many different reasons. For example, chemotherapeutic agents often cause anemia because they the bone marrow's ability to manufacture red blood cells, hemoglobin is carried by RBC's, If there are not enough RBC's, the body does not get the right amount of oxygen. Other types of medication-induced anemia are usually unpredictable, and not well understood (such as drug induced aplastic anemia). Some patients react to drugs because of inherited susceptibility, such as patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency. G-6-PD is an important enzyme that buffers the mature red cell against oxidative stress. In individuals who are deficient in G-6-PD, exposure to certain chemicals, drugs, or even some foods will result in the alteration of hemoglobin and breakdown of red blood cells. Medications (NSAIDs). Aspirin and drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen are called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). About 70% of long-term users of these medications have some sign of gastrointestinal bleeding, although it is rarely significant enough to cause anemia. Including hydration, hydroxyurea, NSAIDs and narcotic analgesics. Other medications that increase the risk for anemia are certain antibiotics, some antiseizure medications (phenytoin), immunosuppressive drugs (methotrexate, azathioprine), antiarrhythmic drugs (procainamide, quinidine), and anti-clotting drugs (aspirin, warfarin, heparin). Now the question is can you die from taking Valium? http://prescription-drug.addictionblog.org/can-you-die-from-taking-valium/ ...
