Health News of the Day, part 2

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day.

  • FRAX is an electronic calculator of fracture risk on the basis of the bone mineral density of the femoral neck. FRAX calculator is used to decide on treatment only in those with osteopenia

  • Bladder cancer cells cloak themselves with a "don't eat me" signal (CD47) that scares off immune system cells

  • FDA Approves New Statin - pitavastatin, Livalo - 4 mg dose of Livalo was superior to a 40 mg dose of Pravachol

Medical news tweets are not research articles - they are 140-character messages - please always go to the original source, links, etc. The inclusion of a Twitter update (tweet) is not an endorsement or agreement of any kind. Tweets and links do not represent endorsement, approval or support.
