Party Lines

The divide that separates conservative and liberal values may be as wide now as it has ever been in our country. This divide shows itself in areas of everyday life, and health care is no exception.

But do doctors’ political beliefs influence the way they practice medicine, choose therapies and treat patients?

Which treatments and how much care to provide at the end of a patient’s life has been a notoriously contentious question in medicine. However, a physician’s party affiliation appears to have no bearing on clinical decisions in the care of terminally ill patients at the end of life, according to a new study led by researchers at Harvard Medical School. Previous research has looked at the role of physicians’ personal beliefs in hypothetical scenarios.

Results of the new study, believed to be the first to look at how doctors behave in real-life clinical practice, are published in

High School Basketball Star Jake Hansel Finds Silver Lining In Heart Disease

As a sophomore and the star point guard of the Camas (Washington) High School Papermakers, it seemed Jake Hansel had a world of opportunities when it came to playing college ball. But then that changed for Hansel, now a Gonzaga University freshman studying mechanical engineering.

The summer before his junior year, Hansel got an electrocardiogram that signaled a heart abnormality — something that runs in the Hansel family. Initially, doctors told Hansel the condition could be something called “athlete’s heart syndrome,” a nonthreatening diagnosis in which the heart is enlarged due to exercise and rests at a lower rate than usual. Hansel was cleared to continue playing basketball at the beginning of his junior season.

However, further tests revealed he had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a disease in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick, making it harder for the heart to pump blo

Study: Vaccine Suppresses Peanut Allergies In Mice

A vaccine may successfully turn off peanut allergy in mice, a new study shows.

Just three monthly doses of a nasal vaccine protected the mice from allergic reactions upon exposure to peanut, according to research from the Mary H. Weiser Food Allergy Center at the University of Michigan.

The study, funded by grants from Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) and the Department of Defense, was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

U-M researchers have spent nearly two decades developing a vaccine agent and have recently translated this work to the development of a vaccine to treat food allergies.

In the new study, immunizing peanut allergic mice can redirect how immune cells responded to peanuts in allergic mice. The new approach activates a different type of immune response that prevents allergic symptoms.

“We’re changing the way the immune cells respond u

What Does Asthma Have To Do With Your Allergies? Probably A Lot

People who have allergies often also have asthma. And people with asthma often have allergies. While the two may not seem related, studies show about two-thirds or more of those with asthma also have an allergy. May is Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, a great time to look at your symptoms and figure out if you’re suffering from asthma, allergies, or both.

“What many people don’t realize is that the same things that trigger your seasonal hay fever symptoms – things like pollen, dust mites, mold and pet dander – can also cause asthma symptoms,” says allergist Bradley Chipps, MD, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). “If you have allergies, and you are wheezing or coughing, see an allergist to find out if you also have asthma. Allergists are also specialists at treating asthma and can put together a treatment plan to help you deal with both allergi
