  • First NEJM article about Web 2.0 use in medicine? Harnessing the Web for Public Health Surveillance

  • Schizophrenia was associated with an increased risk of violent crime, confounded by substance abuse. In patients with schizophrenia, 13.2% had at least 1 violent offense compared with 5.3% of general population

  • Intramyocardial Bone Marrow Cell Injection for Chronic Myocardial Ischemia: modest improvement in myocardial perfusion

  • Tamsulosin within 14 days of cataract surgery associated with serious postoperative ophthalmic adverse events. Alpha-blockers used to treat BPH (other than tamsulosin) not associated with postoperative ophthalmic adverse events?
