Latest NewsInnovative Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Program Marks 10th Anniversary

From left, Tomas Salerno, M.D., Eduardo J. de Marchena, M.D., Mauricio G. Cohen, M.D., and Carlos E. Alfonso, M.D.

A decade ago, open-heart surgery was the only available treatment for an aging adult with severe aortic stenosis, a life-threatening condition causing chest pain, fatigue and shortness of breath. But many high-risk patients whose diseased aortic valves were unable to pump an adequate flow of blood could not undergo surgery and faced a bleak outlook.

Today, its possible to replace an aortic valve through an interventional cardiovascular procedure pioneered in the United States at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in partnership with its affiliated cardiac institute, Clinica Angiografia de Occidente in Colombia. Since the first South Florida patient was treated on April 17, 2008, the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure has opened the door for patients from their 60s to their 90s to get new heart valves and enjoy a much higher quality of life.

Medicine | Define Medicine at Dictionary.com

n.

c.1200, “medical treatment, cure, remedy,” also used figuratively, of spiritual remedies, from Old French medecine (Modern French mdicine) “medicine, art of healing, cure, treatment, potion,” from Latin medicina “the healing art, medicine; a remedy,” also used figuratively, perhaps originally ars medicina “the medical art,” from fem. of medicinus (adj.) “of a doctor,” from medicus “a physician” (see medical); though OED finds evidence for this is wanting. Meaning “a medicinal potion or plaster” in English is mid-14c.

To take (one’s) medicine “submit to something disagreeable” is first recorded 1865. North American Indian medicine-man “shaman” is first attested 1801, from American Indian adoption of the word medicine in sense of “magical influence.” The U.S.-Canadian boundary they called Medicine Line (first attested 1910), because it conferred a kind of magic protection: punishment for crimes committed on one side of it could be avoided by crossing over to the other. Medicine show “traveling show meant to attract a crowd so patent medicine can be sold to them” is American English, 1938. Medicine ball “stuffed leather ball used for exercise” is from 1889.

Q: What is an interaction?

A: Mixing certain medicines together may cause a bad reaction. This is called an interaction. For example, one medicine may cause side effects that create problems with other medicines. Or one medicine may make another medicine stronger or weaker.

Q: How do you classify the seriousness of an interaction?

A: The following classification is used:

Contraindicated: Never use this combination of drugs because of high risk for dangerous interaction

Serious: Potential for serious interaction; regular monitoring by your doctor required or alternate medication may be needed

Significant: Potential for significant interaction (monitoring by your doctor is likely required)

Mild: Interaction is unlikely, minor, or nonsignificant

Q: What should I do if my medications show interactions?

A: Call your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned about an interaction. Do not stop taking any prescribed medication without your doctor’s approval. Sometimes the risk of not taking the medication outweighs the risk or the interaction.

Q: Why can’t I enter my medication?

A: There may be medications, especially otc or supplements, that have not been adequately studied for interactions. If we do not have interaction information for a certain medication it can’t be saved in My Medicine.

Q: Do you cover all FDA warnings?

A: WebMD will alert users to the most important FDA warnings and alerts affecting consumers such as recalls, label changes and investigations. Not all FDA actions are included. Go to the FDA for a comprehensive list of warnings.

Q: Can I be alerted by email if there is an FDA warning or alert?

A: Yes. If you are signed in to WebMD.com and using My Medicine you can sign up to receive email alerts when you add a medicine. To unsubscribe click here.

Q: Can I add medicines for family members?

A: Yes. Click the arrow next to your picture to add drug profiles for family or loved ones.

Q: Can I access My Medicine from my mobile phone?

A: Yes. Sign in to the WebMD Mobile App. Your saved medicine can be found under “Saved.”

Q: Why are there already medicines saved when this my first time using this tool?

A: If you have previously saved a medication on WebMD, for example, in the WebMD Mobile App, these may display in My Medicine.

A new research approach screens a library of 200,000 chemical compounds with more than 100 well-characterized, human lung cancer cell lines to identify ‘therapeutic triads’: potential drug candidates that would kill the cancer cells, biomarkers that would predict who may respond to the candidate drug, and the molecular targets of each active chemical.
