  • Alzheimer’s experimental drug may slow progression of disease, but there are risks: experts
    The experimental drug lecanemab has indicated a slowing of cognitive decline progression by 27% in patients with early-stage Alzheimer’s, according to a study published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. "These findings show that lecanemab offers promise for people with early Alzheimer’s disease, with a significant slowing of decline and a reasonable safety profile," the study’s lead researcher, Dr. Christopher H. Van Dyck, told Fox News Digital in an interview. Van Dyck is director of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Unit and a professor of psychiatry, neurology and neuroscience at the Yale University School of Medicine. ALZHEIMER'S DRUG STUDY YIELDS POSITIVE RESULTS IN EARLY STAGES OF DISEASE In the study, Van Dyck’s researchers said the drug lecanemab "reduced markers of amyloid in early Alzheimer’s disease and resulted in moderately less decline on measures of cognition and function than placebo at 18 months — but was associated with adverse… .....

  • California mom speaks out after losing infant son to RSV complications
    CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. - A Southern California mother who lost her infant son to RSV is sharing her tragic story to warn other parents, as a surge of the dangerous virus is spreading rapidly throughout the country. "He really was just the best baby and the sweetest little soul. We loved him. We love him so much," says Jessica Myers through tears. Myers lost her son William on Nov. 15. He was only 6 weeks old.  "The RSV treatments for him ended up being just too much. His little heart stopped, and it took them a long time to bring him back. When they did, my son was brain dead, and so we had a couple of days to say goodbye to him," says Myers. William Myers was only a few weeks old when he became sick with the virus.

  • Warnings about skin-whitening creams after woman suffers vision loss likely linked to excess mercury...
    Health experts recommend being wary of skin-whitening creams after a Minnesota woman apparently developed peripheral visual loss that may be permanent — likely from exposure of excess levels of mercury in her beauty creams, according to a report. "Mercury poisoning from skin-whitening creams can be very serious, as it causes nervous system damage that can be permanent," Dr. Eric Lavonas, a toxicologist with Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Safety in Denver, Colorado, and a spokesperson for the American College of Emergency Physicians, told Fox News Digital.  "The best way to protect yourself is to stick to clearly labeled and FDA-approved creams and cosmetics," he also said. SKIN-CARE SECRETS: DERMATOLOGIST REVEALS BEST WAYS TO KEEP SKIN LOOKING AGELESS Cosmetic product labels, by law, must note the countries where the products were manufactured, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) told Fox News Digital.

  • Teenage brains aged faster during the pandemic from stress, anxiety: study
    In addition to heavily increased rates of anxiety and depression, researchers at Stanford University discovered the COVID-19 pandemic aged teenagers' brains by almost three years, according to a study published Thursday. In "Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Mental Health and Brain Maturation in Adolescents," the group of seven researchers compared MRI scans taken of teenagers ages 15 to 18 before the pandemic to scans of the same age group taken during the pandemic. The images showed teenagers' brains looked almost three years older during the pandemic than they did before COVID. The scans also reportedly showed structural changes in the brain and changes to the parts of the brain responsible for memory, concentration, learning, emotion, reactivity and judgment. HEART DISEASE, STROKE DEATHS ROSE DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC: STUDY "Even though they were age-matched, their brains looked older," said lead author Ian Gotlib, professor of psychology at Stanford University, according to USA Today.… .....

  • Africa to receive its 1st vaccines for mpox, formerly known as monkeypox
    Africa's top public health body says the continent is set to receive its first batch of mpox vaccines as a donation from South Korea. The Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday the 50,000 doses will be used first for health workers and people living in the hardest-hit areas. No timing was given for the doses' arrival. HALF A MILLION SOMALI CHILDREN UNDER 5 AT RISK OF DYING FROM FAMINE The continent this year has recorded 202 deaths from mpox — formerly known as monkeypox — with a fatality rate of 19.3% across 13 countries. And yet African health authorities for months have pursued vaccines mostly in vain as major outbreaks were reported in rich, Western countries for the first time. Acting CDC director Ahmed Ogwell noted 51 new mpox cases in Congo in the past week and said Ghana and Nigeria are the other most affected countries. ..... Read More.
