Botox to treat chronic migraines

NEW YORK - THE US Food and Drug Administration on Friday approved Allergan Inc's anti-wrinkle injection Botox to treat chronic migraines.

Botox injections would be given to adult sufferers of chronic migraines around the head and neck every 12 weeks in an attempt to dull future headaches, said the FDA in a statement.

Chronic migraine sufferers have a headache on most days of the month. Botox has not been shown to work for people who suffer headaches 14 days or less per month, the FDA said.

The United Kingdom was the first country to approve the use of Botox for migraine treatment in July. The approval comes just over a month after Allergan agreed to pay US$600 million (S$777.5 million) to settle a federal probe into its marketing practices for Botox. -- REUTERS

Mesothelioma Disease


When a patient learns of a mesothelioma diagnosis, confusion is often one of the first emotions experienced. What exactly is mesothelioma? Is it a disease? A virus? Mesothelioma is actually a rare type of cancer. When people refer to mesothelioma disease, they are actually referring to mesothelioma cancer. Mesothelioma develops in the mesothelium, the membrane that surrounds several body cavities. The mesothelium is comprised of mesothelial cells, which become abnormal and divide uncontrollably if mesothelioma is present.

Flibanserin: Pill designed to boost sxx drive in women


Development of a pill designed to boost sxx drive in women has been halted, the German manufacturer said.

Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH said this followed a sceptical response from US regulators.

The company said it made the decision because of the "complexity and extent of further questions that would need to be addressed to potentially obtain registration".

In a review in June, the Food and Drug Administration said two Boehringer studies failed to show a significant increase in sxxual desire in women who took the drug as recorded by them in a daily journal.

The company said that despite its decision it "continues to believe in the value" that its drug, called flibanserin, could have.

Boehringer Ingelheim said it would reallocate resources to areas such as stroke prevention, diabetes and cancer.

The Basics of Sxx Therapy

Some of the most common things that couples argue about are money, sxx, children, and in-laws. People are more and more likely to talk to a therapist about their families and money. However, many people still are too embarrassed to seek treatment for sxxual problems.

There are many kinds of sxxual problems. It is common for women to have trouble reaching orgasm or sxxual climax. It is common for men to have difficulty in delaying orgasm. Couples often have problems when one person wants to try something sxxual that the other person does not want to try. Sxx therapy can help with these and other problems.

As with any therapist, it is important to check the qualifications of the person you are going to see. Ask about degrees, training, memberships in associations, and so forth. Therapists should abide by guidelines set by the American Psychological Association and/or the American Medical Association. These guidelines forbid sexual contact between patients and therapists. Ask the State Board of Mental Health in your state about specialists who treat sxxual problems.

Beetroot juice boosts stamina

LONDON - SOME experts say adding beetroot juice to your diet - like other foods such as cherry juice or milk - could provide a performance boost even beyond the blood, sweat and tears of more training.

In two studies conducted at Exeter University on 15 men, Stephen Bailey and colleagues found cyclists who drank a half-litre (about a half-quart) of beetroot juice several hours before setting off were able to ride up to 20 per cent longer than those who drank a placebo blackcurrant juice.

Give saturated fat 2nd chance

WASHINGTON - RESEARCHERS backed by the US dairy industry say saturated fat is unfairly blamed for causing heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems.

Instead of blaming whole milk and cheeses for clogging arteries, they argue, people should reduce carbohydrates and eat more fish - alongside a glass of milk. That's the message from the Global Dairy Platform, promoting a series of research articles published in the October issue of Lipids.

'Although diets inordinately high in fat and saturated fat are associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk in some individuals, assuming that saturated fat at any intake level is harmful is an over-simplification and not supported by scientific evidence,' said Bruce German, a food science professor at the University of California.

The dairy industry says saturated fat intake has a limited impact on cardiovascular disease risk. For years they have argued that dietary advice wrongly blames saturated fat as the major cause of heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure.

Still, the American Heart Association advises that no more than seven percent of daily calories come from saturated fat, which occur naturally in many foods, including fatty beef, pork, cream, butter and other dairy products.

The AHA says, for example, that people who need 2,000 calories per day should get no more than 140 of them from saturated fats, which translates to about 16g of saturated fats per day. Total fat intake should not exceed 35 per cent of daily calories, the AHA advises. Remaining fat should come from nuts, fish and vegetable oils, which are sources of mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. -- AFP
