New research to be presented Oct. 29 at the American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting in San Diego indicates that a common rheumatoid arthritis treatment may be effective for treating Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD). IgG4-RD has only been identified as a unified disease entity in the last ten years. It can mimic various infections and malignancies, particularly lymphoma and pancreatic, renal or lung carcinoma and is now known to link well over a dozen disease entities that were formerly regarded as single-organ conditions. In this work, a small group of 29 patients diagnosed with IgG4-RD were treated with the drug rituximab (Rituxan®) at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Mayo Clinic to promising results. Confirming the study’s findings in a larger, randomized trial is a critical future step to further investigation into this therapy.

MAYO CLINIC ON ASPIRIN ~ PASS IT ON Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that Sleep Apnea is to blame. 1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system. 2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar). Please read on. Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know.Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much ...
Get Paid to Lose Weight: A report from the Mayo Clinic at this month's American College of Cardiology scientif...
Women Power.   There are lots of great reasons for women to exercise. Improved strength, fat loss and increased bone density are all compelling reasons to begin a fitness program. While the same general principles of exercise apply to both men and women, there are several tips that you can use to tailor a fitness program to your own individual needs.   Strength is Critical   Most women are taught to lift light weight for lots of reps, because of the fear of getting too masculine looking. This is actually the opposite of what most women need. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, women's bodies simply don't respond to resistance training the way men's bodies do. Muscle is what gives the female body its shape. Strength training will only enhance, not diminish your natural curves.   Train for Strong Bones.   Although bone density later in life should be of concern to both men and women, the smaller, lighter skeletons of women, along with hormonal changes during menopause, make them more ...
Fibromyalgia Underdiagnosed, Report Mayo Clinic Experts Dec 26, 2012 The first population study to compare the prevalence of diagnosed fibromyalgia (FM) to the general population prevalence of people reporting symptoms that met the updated 2010 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) diagnostic criteria indicates that FM may be more common than previously thought and that most FM cases are not being diagnosed, especially in men. The researchers, led by Ann Vincent, MD, medical director of the Mayo Clinic's Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, report, in an article published online November 30 in Arthritis Care & Research, that FM prevalence was 6.4% in the general population of Olmstead County but that the age- and sex-adjusted prevalence of diagnosed FM was only 1.1%. Age-adjusted FM prevalence in men was 4.88% (95% confidence interval [CI], 2.08 -7.69) in the general population but only 0.15% (95% CI, 0.12 - 0.19) in the diagnosed cases. Age-adjusted prevalence in women was 7.71 ...

CT Colonography Shown to be Comparable to Standard Colonoscopy for People Ages 65 and Over A recent analysis of data collected in the National CT Colonography Trial conducted by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) confirms the efficacy of the exam as a front line colorectal cancer screening tool for seniors. Philadelphia (Feb. 23, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — Computerized tomographic (CT) colonography (CTC), also known as virtual colonoscopy, is comparable to standard colonoscopy in its ability to accurately detect cancer and precancerous polyps in people ages 65 and older, according to a paper published online today in Radiology. This is consistent with results of the ACRIN National CT Colonography Trial, published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2008, which demonstrated that CT colonography can serve as a primary colorectal cancer screening option for adults ages 50 and older, but did not specifically break out data for participants ages 65 and older included in the overall ana ...
