“Will the FDA, the people who have the stick, finally make the companies do something?” asked Valbuena, who co-authored a study showing inaccuracies with pulse oximeters. Sylvia Jarrus for STATThe pulse oximeter was forged in a white population. I believe Caucasians get better treatment than Black and brown people, but it’s not the pulse oximeter. Kiani titled his editorial “Pulse Oximeters are not Racist.” But many argue that they are. By fixing pulse oximeters, the FDA could be fixing a whole lot more.4 months ago STAT News
Among deeply conservative and often Trump-backed congressional and gubernatorial candidates, calls to investigate or even jail Anthony Fauci have become regular campaign rallying cries. In some ways, the anti-science rhetoric is even more intense now than it was in the last election cycle. In races for governor, many Republicans have established themselves against the Biden administration’s Covid-19 response and what they argue is federal overreach. She’s since said on the campaign trail that she would make the malaria drug and another disproven treatment, ivermectin, available to Arizonans. Democrats’ health care messaging has focused far more on abortion rights and this summer’s passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes provisions to lower prescription drug costs — a typically bipartisan issue that should resonate with voters.5 months ago STAT News
Their guidelines, once called the “bible of concussion treatment recommendations,” informs concussion research, policies, and return-to-play protocols around the world. But in the CISG’s highly influential international concussion guidelines, girls and women make up barely 10% of the athletes studied. Concerted efforts are needed to remedy this profound inequity and ensure that concussion guidelines for all athletes are fully inclusive of all athletes. All athletes — not just professional athletes — deserve a truly inclusive, independent, and transparent process by which to craft the guidelines on which their brains depend. It is high time that we have an international concussion group that prioritizes that all-important goal.5 months ago STAT News
WASHINGTON — Federal regulators’ green light for pharmacists to dispense abortion pills is crashing into legal questions and simmering court battles. But it also puts abortion pills in a legal gray area in 12 of the country’s most abortion-restrictive states, where the procedure is banned from conception to six weeks. In two other states, Montana and Wisconsin, there are no clinics currently providing abortion, according to pro-abortion rights group the Guttmacher Institute. advertisementIn those especially restrictive states, it’s not entirely clear whether state laws can effectively prevent people from accessing a drug that the FDA has approved. In the face of certain legal challenges, the White House is relying on mail-order protections to keep mifepristone channels open.2 months ago STAT News
Henney led the agency at the time initial restrictions were put in place on the prescribing of the abortion pill. During the pandemic, the FDA stopped requiring that mifepristone be prescribed in-person, a change that was subsequently made permanent. Those who first imposed restrictions on the drug expected the rules would be revised as more data emerged. “It’s taken longer, quite frankly, than I thought it would,” said Jane Henney, who was the FDA commissioner in 2000, when mifepristone was approved. Do you wish the FDA had lifted all the restrictions entirely, so that mifepristone could be prescribed and distributed like any other drug that’s been proven safe and effective?2 months ago STAT News
Medical professionals generally understand how election results can affect their personal freedoms, the health of the communities they serve and live in, and even how they practice medicine. Yet in the past, many medical professionals have refrained from voting. advertisementIncreasing voter participation by medical professionals will require planning on their part and the part of their institutions. Your county of residence determines if you have the option to vote by mail, vote early in person, or can vote only in person on Election Day. Residents of Alabama, Connecticut, Mississippi, Missouri, or New Hampshire cannot vote early and need to make plans to vote on election day.5 months ago STAT News
