PCLS Announces Expansion of Cardiovascular Pharmacogenetic Testing Menu

Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) October 22, 2014

Physicians Choice Laboratory Services (PCLS) announces the expansion of its cardiovascular pharmacogenetics menu, which enables healthcare providers to individualize therapeutic treatments for improved patient outcomes. With PCLSs evidence-based results, healthcare providers are better able to assess patients individual needs and optimize their therapy, while minimizing risks for adverse drug reactions and interactions.

In the U.S., according to the FDA [1] more than 2.2 million adverse drug reactions (ADRs) occur annually and are the fourth leading cause of death, ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS and automobile deaths. Currently, 42 percent of patients do not receive relief from their prescription medications [2] and $ 300 billion is wasted annually on drugs that do not work for some patients based on how they metabolize certain medications. [3] These issues could easily be prevented with a one-time, cost-effective test from PCLSs pharmacogenetics testing lab.

PCLSs pharmacogenetic tests detect genetic variants that affect a patients ability to metabolize certain medications and/or identify the likelihood for adverse cardiovascular-related events. Some of the prevalent medications used to treat cardiovascular disease include:

New Video Depicts Best Treatment for PPP

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2014

In a new video released for Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, Dr. William Groff, an expert on the condition known as PPP, demonstrates a proven effective way of treating it. Pearly penile papules, or PPP, is a condition that affects mostly uncircumcised men in their twenties and thirties, although other men may be affected as well. The condition is characterized by small bumps surrounding the head of the penis.

While PPP is not a sexually transmitted disease and generally has no adverse symptoms, it can be embarrassing for many men, said leading dermatologist Dr. Groff of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology. Luckily, there is an effective, noninvasive treatment available. A CO2 laser treatment can completely remove the papules within one session.

PPP is not a widely known condition, and some people may think that it is some kind of sexually transmitted disease, or may confuse it with another condition such as genital warts. However, it is a harmless condition, with the only symptom being the extreme embarrassment it can cause in men affected by it. Many men may try to turn to home remedies rather than talking with a doctor about it, but a CO2 laser is the only proven effective method for eliminating PPP.

There are a lot of home remedies that claim to be able to eliminate PPP, but the only proven method is through a CO2 laser treatment, explained Dr. Groff. Men may be afraid to go to their doctor about PPP, but it is absolutely worth it to see a board-certified dermatologist who can provide instant results.

The CO2 laser treatment is absolutely painless, as a topical numbing cream is applied for thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment starts. The CO2 laser will then be used to carefully eliminate the papules one by one. After the treatment, there may be some scabbing, redness, swelling, or mild discomfort which will fade within one to two weeks.

Most men are able to resume their everyday activities and go back to work immediately following a CO2 laser procedure, said Dr. Groff. It typically takes one to two weeks to fully heal, after which the appearance of the penis will be significantly improved.

Men suffering from pearly penile papules shouldnt hesitate to seek the advice of a board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Groff. There is no need to live with the embarrassment or self-consciousness that may accompany PPP while there is a proven and painless method to be rid of the condition.

Dr. William F. Groff has been practicing dermatology in San Diego for more than fourteen years and is considered a leader and innovator in the field. Having given over 100 lectures in several countries across the globe, Dr. Groff has a passion for sharing knowledge with others in his profession to promote research and advanced treatment methods. With a unique knowledge of injectable treatments, Dr. Groff travels the country to serve as a key opinion leader and trainer for Allergan INC, the makers of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm Voluma, as well as Medicis and Merz Pharm. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, Dr. Groff helps patients achieve ideal cosmetic goals through custom treatment plans developed to address their exact needs.

New Jersey Litigations Continue to Add Ethicon, C.R. Bard Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2014

Transvaginal mesh ( lawsuits are continuing to be filed in New Jersey, where two separate litigations are moving forward in Atlantic County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.

According to Case Lists updated on September 5th, thousands of lawsuits have now been filed over devices marketed by C.R. Bard Inc., and Johnson & Johnsons Ethicon unit. In a consolidated proceeding involving cases against C.R. Bard, a total of 1,557 claims have now been filed, while the litigation involving Ethicons Gynecare product line now includes more than 7,000 lawsuits. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10) (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)

We are not surprised that the number of lawsuits continues to increase in the two mesh litigations underway in Atlantic County, as our Firm regularly hears from women who received implants from Ethicon, C.R. Bard and other companies, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free and confidential case evaluations to women who may have suffered pain, erosion, scarring, infection and other side effects allegedly caused by transvaginal mesh.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Transvaginal mesh lawsuits have continued to increase since 2008, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first warned about their potential to cause serious injuries. At the time, the FDA said it received at least 1,000 reports of serious injuries associated with pelvic mesh implants over three years. In July 2011, the federal agency issued a second Public Health Alert indicating that the number of transvaginal mesh injury reports had tripled since 2008. The FDA said at the time that such injuries were not rare, which was a modification of its previous stance that they were rare.

The nationwide law firm of Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively involved in New Jerseys consolidated mesh litigations. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is currently serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both the C.R. Bard and Ethicon proceedings. For the Ethicon litigation, Mr. Grandwas also a member of the Plaintiffs trial team in a case that concluded in March 2013 with an $ 11 million damage award to a woman who was injured by the companys Prolift device. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10)

At the federal court level, transvaginal mesh lawsuits are moving forward as well. Court documents show 19,380 Ethicon lawsuits now filed in a multidistrict litigation established in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, where nearly 9,600 claims over C.R. Bard have now been centralized in a separate proceeding established there. Mr. Grand is serving on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee in both these litigations, as well as those involving American Medical Systems, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp. (Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327), American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187).

On September 5th, the jury hearing the second bellwether trial in the federal Ethicon litigation returned a $ 3.27 million verdict in favor of a woman who suffered complications related to erosion of her Gynacare TVT O-Mesh device. (Huskey v. Ethicon, Case No. 12-5201)

Just days later, a jury in Texas state court ordered on September 8th that Boston Scientific pay $ 73 million in compensatory and punitive damage to a woman who was harmed by the companys Obtryx sling. (Salazar v. Lopez, No. DC-1214349, District Court for Dallas County, 95th Judicial District of Texas (Dallas))

According to court documents, all transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed in these litigations allege chronic pain, scarring, painful sexual intercourse and other injuries caused by the implants. Plaintiffs further accuse manufacturers of failing to adequately warn doctors and patients about risks that may be associated with their products.

Women who were allegedly injured as a result of transvaginal mesh may be able to pursue their own legal claim against the manufacturer of their device.

Bel Marra Health Reports on Harvard Study to Solve Food Addiction

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 11, 2014

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on research that suggests a new way to tackle food addiction.

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (, a new study has found a way to train the brain to like healthy foods that some find less than palatable.

The study, conducted by Harvard Medical School and Tufts University and published in the journal Nutrition & Diabetes, has revealed that unhealthy foods like donuts and chips can be made less appealing to the brain while healthier food can be made more appealing.

The brain is plastic when it comes to food addiction. Circuits in the brains reward center can be completely reversed. That can mean good things for your health, if the new information is used properly.

We dont start out in life loving French fries and hating, for example, whole wheat pasta, says senior author Susan Roberts, who teaches at Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.

This conditioning happens over time in response to eating repeatedly what is out there in the toxic food environment.

Researchers looked at the brains of 13 overweight and obese men and women. Eight of the participants were enrolled in a six-month behavioral weight-loss program designed by Tufts University while the remaining participants were not. All participants underwent brain scans at the beginning and end of the program.

The researchers found those who followed the weight-loss program lost a significant amount of weight, 6 kg on average, while the others put on an average of 2 kg.

The first group also saw an increase in the activity of their brains reward center that was only activated as a response to seeing images of low-calorie healthy foods at the end of the program and decreased activity in response to high-calorie foods.

Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, Food addiction is a very real concern. Make sure you notice the signs and take steps to make changes. Bad food habits can be hard to break the longer you hold onto them.

A common sign you may be experiencing a food addiction is if you are using food to feel better, or as a reward for overcoming an emotional issue. Food addicts will need to break the cycle of eating for reward to overcome the addiction.

This study brings new hope to overweight individuals looking to break the cycle and establish good eating habits.

ERASE Racism is One of the Organizations to Successfully Advocate for New Human Rights Legislation in Suffolk County

(PRWEB) September 14, 2014

After leading the effort in achieving a strengthened fair housing law in Nassau County, which included source of income as a protected class, which took effect in 2007, ERASE Racism, as an organizer of the Housing for All Coalition, is celebrating yet another victory in the pursuit for racial equity and protection of human rights.

On Tuesday, September 10th, 2014, HR 1620 passed the Suffolk County Legislature by a unanimous vote. Advanced by County Executive Steve Bellone, the bill expands the Countys Human Rights Law to provide residents protection from discrimination in areas including housing, employment, credit, and public accommodations. According to ERASE Racism, the changes passed in the bill are a step forward for human rights in Suffolk County, benefiting a myriad of residents, including veterans, immigrants, racial and ethnic minorities, single mothers with children, and seniors.

With this passage, Suffolk now joins Nassau in expanding protections for residents against discriminatory practices. The amendments strengthen housing provisions, prohibiting discrimination against individuals based on their lawful source of income, including income derived from Social Security or housing assistance such as the Housing Choice Voucher Program (also known as Section 8). In addition these amendments prohibit realtors or sellers from refusing to make properties available to individuals based on actual or perceived race, national origin, citizenship status, gender, sexual orientation, military status, and disability, among other things. The adoption of this bill not only protects Suffolk County residents against all forms of discrimination but promotes residential racial integration and economic equality.

ERASE Racism is especially pleased that residents of Suffolk County no longer have to face housing discrimination because of their source of income. In strengthening the Human Rights Law and furthering fair housing choice, ERASE Racism commends County Executive Steve Bellone and the Suffolk County Legislature for this action,” remarked ERASE Racism President Elaine Gross.

Please visit ERASE Racism’s website to view Elaine Grosss testimony in support of the bill.

About ERASE Racism: ERASE Racism is a regional organization that leads public policy advocacy campaigns and related programmatic initiatives to promote racial equity in areas such as housing, public school education and healthcare. It engages in a variety of research, education and consulting activities to identify and address institutional and structural racism, primarily on Long Island.
