There were many people hard at work trying to find a vaccine including an American researcher, Jonas Salk. Salk had created the vaccine years earlier but a lot of testing was required. He figured out that his vaccine worked about 86% of the time, which was better than any other vaccine. This vaccine was injected, but there was many side effects, including fevers and drowsiness but the good out weighed the bad. This was later to be called IPV (injected Polio Vaccine) because later OPV (Oral Polio Vaccine) was to be introduced.
We all know breast cancer is detected through mammograms and colon cancer can be caught early through a regular colonoscopy. When it comes to lung cancer, which kills the most Americans, there are only a few tests. Unlike mammography and colonoscopy, not everyone has to get screened. While lung cancer is diagnosed in people who’ve never smoked in their lives, a majority of the patients have a history of smoking. If you’ve quit smoking, you’re in much better health than if you were still lighting up.
The main medicine for reducing bad cholesterol is statins, but some patients cannot tolerate it or do not get enough help from the drug. The study involved both Praulent and a similar medication, Repatha, manufactured by Amgen. But Repatha works in a different way and lowers cholesterol much more. The study on Praulent took a longer time and involved patients at a higher risk of heart events. These were almost 19,000 patients who suffered a heart attack or serious chest pain the previous year that they had to be hospitalized.
Take medical field for example, by 1970, many people had super fear of Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) diseases. People who infected with AISD would be death for sure because there was no advanced medication to cure AISD. The average life time for aid patients was about nineteenth years. However, nowadays, the medication to cure AISD has been improved a lot. The formula
Although the effects of e-prescribing seem promising, this was one of the only few studies that have been done to prove its effectiveness in outpatient setting. I would recommend more studies to be conducted to convince more health care practices of the effectiveness of e-prescribing. Technological advances have improved patient safety and quality of care. E-prescribing is a technological development that can contribute to patient safety by reducing prescribing errors. The Food and Drug Administration receives about 300 medication errors a month.
That, coupled with the fear of the United States government cracking down with “The War on Drugs”, LSD being one of the most punishable drugs with a minimum of 5 years and a fine of no more than two million for possession of one to nine grams (LSD: Penalties for Sale and Possession). The Manson murders and the fear that illicit drugs are the sole reason to blame. The fear of death or being disassociated with yourself, with ego death and ego loss. And the fear of the taboo nature of drugs; are the reasons more countries and research labs do not focus on the possibilities of LSD-25. As powerful as many substances are, LSD remains one of the most potent with a threshold dose as low as 20 µg; it also remains one of the most life altering as it can help you
I have been very luckily treated for multiple generic disorders in America since 2001 as a result of advancing medical science and the stunning performance by physicians, surgeons, clinicians and therapists. The medical practitioners had introduced me hopes again and again. It was when I woke up from general anesthesia in Massachusetts General Hospital my surgeon explained to me the implantable device on clinic trial failed to correct my generic disorder; however he reassured me this was not the end of it and we’ll try another device expected to be available after FDA’s approval in a year. I would have a shortened life expectancy if this disorder was left untreated into my middle-age adulthood. Six years later, another doctor in South Carolina identified a
Although the use of medical cannabis is still illegal under federal law, as of 2015, twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have legalized its use. It is used to treat numerous conditions including: chronic pain, muscle spasms, nausea (often from chemo), appetite of those with AIDS/HIV, insomnia, neurological disorders, and glaucoma. The use of cannabis in the medical world is a controversial topic to begin with. The use of it for minors is even more so. Medical marijuana has been shown to decrease the number of seizures for those who have epilepsy.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with any form of chronic pain that hinders your everyday functionality and life then you may benefit from the positive effects of medical marijuana. More than half of the states have legalized medical marijuana in some way. 92% of patients who use medical marijuana say that it works. Patients suffering from chronic pain need the US Government and the American people to legalize medical marijuana to help ease patients’ suffering. The positive effects of medical marijuana can be extremely beneficial to a vast majority of chronic pain sufferers.
Birth control pills are pills that have to be taken daily in order to prevent pregnancy. The pills are a form of oral contraception. Once again, birth control pills work by releasing hormones (progestin and estrogen) into the body that prevent the ovaries from releasing ova (eggs) and thickening cervical mucus to prevent sperm from passing. Birth control pills are very effective if they are taken correctly and on the right time each day. Less than 1 out of 100 women will get pregnant each year if they take the pill correctly.
