Have you ever taken an over the counter medication for heartburn? How about an antibiotic for an ear infection? At some point pretty much all of us have visited a pharmacy to pick up a drug, but likely didn't consider where these drugs come from or how they are made. Whether you're talking about something for seasonal allergies or your grandparent's arthritis medication, the act of bringing a drug to market is long and complex. I'm not an expert, but HCT intern Rachel Hoffman is, and with her help, that's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

WASHINGTON (WKRC) - A strain of drug resistant superbugs may be spreading more widely than previously thought. That's the result of a chilling new study of "CRE." The CDC said it caused an estimated 9,300 infections and 600 deaths per year. It generally spreads from patient to patient in hospitals and long term care facilities. There are usually no signs of any symptoms. The bug killed a Nevada woman over the summer of 2016. In her case, the bug was resistant to all 26 antibiotics available in the U.S.

On Dec. 11, 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced important steps to ensure the judicious use of antibiotics in food animals as one approach to addressing antimicrobial resistance in human medicine. In an effort to clarify what this ruling means to livestock producers and other industry professionals, members of the University of Illinois Extension Service will offer a webinar to address the new rules on Tues., Jan. 28 from noon to 1 p.m. The discussion will cover what the new steps mean to the livestock industry, what they don't mean, and how producers and others should respond. The webinar will be presented by professor emeritus James Pettigrew and professor Hans Stein of the Department of Animal Sciences and professor Larry Firkins of the College of Veterinary Medicine.. "This announcement is not a surprise; it has been anticipated for several months," Pettigrew said. Pettigrew explained that while the FDA's approach to antibiotic use in food animals had been published previously, the new documents issued this month describe the implementation of that approach. "The documents address only those antibiotics considered important in human medicine, which are all of them except the widely-used ionophores and a few others," Pettigrew said. "The new rules apply only to antibiotics used in feed or drinking water." The core of the FDA's approach includes: 1. No use of these antibiotics for production purposes (to improve growth rate or feed efficiency). 2. All uses of these antibiotics must be under veterinary oversight. 3. Disease prevention is specifically recognized as an approved judicious use of antibiotics.

Your tax-deductible donation will be matched up to $7,000 by two generous donors (Bailey Gimbel and John McCormick). This offer ends on December 31, or when all matching funds have been met. We have already raised $727,000 of the $771,000 needed for the Boulder study, with just $44,000 needed to complete the study. http://maps.org/donate Preliminary results from this study are showing that 56% of participants receiving MDMA-assisted psychotherapy experienced clinically significant (30% or more) decreases in PTSD symptoms two months after treatment, compared with only 17% of those receiving placebo. These results are even stronger one year after treatment, with 80% of participants experiencing significant improvements. This preliminary data reaffirms the promising results of our study published in 2011, which found that 83% of participants no longer had PTSD two months after treatment. By making a gift today, you're helping make psychedelic therapy a legally available treatment. http://maps.org/donate Data from this and other Phase 2 studies will be used to plan the larger Phase 3 studies necessary to demonstrate to the FDA that MDMA-assisted psychotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for PTSD. We estimate needing an additional $870,000 to complete Phase 2, and an additional $22.1 million to complete Phase 3 and establish MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a legally available treatment by 2021.

Description: There is a growing push to incorporate patient voices more directly at the FDA in decision making about investigational drugs, but what are the optimal parameters of patients' contributions? How should individual patient voices be weighed against the accumulated data about a drug? Can we better educate patients to equip them to engage in discussions about trial design, statistics, and evaluation? How should we consider financial relationships between patient advocacy groups and the pharmaceutical industry sponsor of a drug? To address these and other questions, we will consider two recent cases: flibanserin (the "female Viagra") for hypoactive sexual desire disorder in women and eteplirsen for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. In both cases, patients had a substantial voice in the data collection and FDA review processes, leading to controversial outcomes.

***READ*** SOOO MANY DRUGS - 450!!! Animals raised for meat in factory farms are often genetically manipulated to grow unnaturally large and hence more profitable for the agricultural industry. Chickens slaughtered in the United States, for example, are bred to weigh a staggering nine pounds today compared to just two pounds in the 1950s. They are bred to grow so fast, in fact, that debilitating deformities are common. According to a study by the Center for Food Safety, over 450 animal drugs, drug combinations, and other feed additives are administered to animals to achieve increased growth and keep them alive in conditions that would otherwise kill them. Indeed, 99.9 percent of chicken and 78 percent of beef consumed in the United States come from overcrowded factory farms. Since these factory farms are filthy and packed tightly with animals, disease and infection run rampant. To make matters worse, the Center for Food Safety found that drugs posing “significant threats” to humans, animals, and the environment are administered to animals. Shockingly, these have been approved by the FDA and are on the market. Of the drugs studied, 12 are banned for use as animal drugs in other countries, but not in the United States. Ractopamine is used to increase an animal’s muscle mass and overall weight before slaughter, but the risks posed to consumers and the environment are not fully known. As for animals, ractopamine has resulted in more reports of sickened or dead pigs than any other livestock drug. It also increases lameness, broken limbs, and immobility. Cardiovascular stress, musculoskeletal tremors, increased aggression, hyperactivity, acute toxicity, and genotoxicity are just a few of the behavioral changes and other problems linked to ractopamine. Despite mounting evidence of health risks from arsenic exposure, from 1940 to 2016 the FDA approved arsenic-based compounds, or arsenicals, for use in animal feed for growth promotion, improved feed efficiency, and desirable pigmentation. Consequently, cumulative exposure to arsenic greatly increased among Americans, with documented cases of arsenic residues in chicken products. Evidence that inorganic arsenic compounds are readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tracts of humans also abounds. Synthetic antioxidants, such as ethoxyquin, are used to slow down rot and increase meat’s shelf life. Although recognized by the FDA as poisonous, ethoxyquin is added to drinking water at poultry farms to enhance the yellow of egg yolks. Despite the FDA’s acknowledgement of the dangers, there has been no reevaluation or restriction of the drug for animals. Eighty percent of all antibiotics in the United States are administered to farmed animals to curb infections, treat diseases, or promote growth and feed efficiency. While the doses are low and nonlethal, they allow bacteria to mutate and become resistant. This heightens the threat of antibiotic-resistant infections, which are expected to kill approximately 10 million people each year by 2050, according to a 2015 study. Take a stand for your health, the environment, and the billions of animals who suffer and die each year. Withdraw your support from the cruel and immoral animal agriculture industry. Why are billions of our taxes still given to this unhealthy industry that has a large part in destroying our health care...NO free range (often not much better so know your source) and organic meats are not possible for 8 BILLION humans and is very wasteful, bad for our planet, health care and much more so simply leave animals alone and go vegan.

We are Anonymous, and we want justice. This corrupt government has proven that it won't serve true justice, today, let's look at the FDA. A harvard study revealed that the FDA approves multiple pharmacutical drugs that have proven to be deadly. Every week, 2400 people die as a result of taking prescription medication. That means 124,000 people die from prescription medication each year, 10 times that of terrorism worldwide in 2007! Do you still think the FDA is protecting you? And marijuana is illegal? Which, according to virtually every study, doesn't kill anybody! What else? They are allowing G-M-Os, that are known to be deadly, into our supermarkets, and I'm talking about a G-M-O that has been proven to be deadly. Monsanto uses the BT toxin in their corn, a toxin known to cause organ failure in rats. A lot of times, side effects in rats do occur in humans, who's to say that the BT toxin isn't contributing to organ failure? Is the FDA really protecting you? Doesn't the FDA inspect factories, make sure that they are safe? Well, what's to explain why, according to the CDC, there are 1,000 food-borne illness outbreaks every year, many due to a flaw in the factory or farming process? Also, in 2007, according to the U-S-D-A, there were over 30,000 food and beverage processing plants in the country, in 2006, one year before, the FDA conducted only 9,164 inspections, that means over 20,000 factories are getting by without inspection, is this really protecting you? No matter what the origins of your workers are, Robert Califf, this is unacceptable! Children are eating that food, prescription medication is killing innocent people! And perhaps the worst injustice of all, the FDA is allowing the food industry to basically, manufacture superbugs. Superbugs are bacterial infections immune to antibiotics, and are virtually untreatable. They are manufactured by either a, giving animals antibiotics, causing a superbug to form in the animal. Once the animal is killed, the superbug is in the meat and fed to the human, the human catches the superbug, and it spreads. Or b, too many antibiotics are given to people who don't need them, the superbug starts in their system, and it spreads. Both of these actions should be illegal, and heavily enforced by the FDA, yet, they aren't! It is estimated, that by 2050, 10,000,000 people will be killed worldwide by superbugs. 300,000 of those in North America. We are literally allowing deadly diseases to be created by other people! And numerous scientists have spoken out about the topic as well, yet, the government imposes no regulations. Personally, I'm fed up! You'll notice that a common theme in my videos is me, at the end, calling for anarchy. This one will be no different. Anarchy would fix this problem, modern anarchy would, probably, still have supermarkets, and with anarchy, would anyone really allow this? The manufacturing of superbugs?! A group of people would end it in any way they see fit, and don't think it will be murder. Murder will result in them being condemned, and probably in a guilty conscience. Another group of people would work together and inspect all of the food factories, and another would get the deadly prescription medications off the shelves. Why would they? Because they don't want to be given poison by either their doctor, or their local market. How would they band together, it's called the internet, I presume you're on it right now! We are Anonymous, we are all, we do not forget, yet we can forgive, expect us.
