The FDA has approved a new dry powder inhaler (marketed as Breo Ellipta) to increase airflow and reduce exacerbations in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The once-daily maintenance therapy combines the inhaled corticosteroid fluticasone furoate with vilanterol, a long-acting β2-adrenergic agonist (LABA).
In a laboratory experiment, acetaminophen modified how people responded to angst.
Neural circuits mediating physical and social pain (e.g., responses to rejection) closely overlap (JW Psychiatry May 2 2011), and acetaminophen has been shown to reduce social pain. These investigators conducted two double-blind studies to assess acetaminophen’s impact on another unpleasant emotion, distress accompanying unsettling uncertainties.
FDA approves morning-after pill without prescription for girls 15 and older
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that it approved the availability of the Plan B One-Step emergency contraception pill without a prescription for women 15 and older.
“Research has shown that access to emergency contraceptive products has the potential to further decrease the rate of unintended pregnancies in the United States,” said FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg in a statement. “The data reviewed by the agency demonstrated that women 15 years of age and older were able to understand how Plan B One-Step works, how to use it properly, and that it does not prevent the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease.”

I don’t remember if we posted our schedules or not but I’m sure if we didn’t we can do that soon to let you guys see the types of rotations we’re going to be doing.
If you guys have any questions about them feel free to ask =).
Liver failure caused by Tylenol overdose - This liver specimen is from the autopsy of a young woman who committed suicide by overdosing on Tylenol. The Tylenol caused extensive free radical damage resulting in the “nutmeg pattern” appearance of the liver. The “nutmeg” is actually blood from the congestion and necrosis caused by the free radicals. This patients liver sustained too much damage and failed, resulting in death.
