New drug for premature ejaculation

Now treatment for premature ejaculation has come to India. It works by altering levels of serotonin, a chemical in the brain. It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), which blocks the re–absorption of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Changing the balance of serotonin, which helps in transmitting messages between neurons, helps enhance mood. So far, premature ejaculation was being treated with anti–depressants. But the problem with anti–depressants is they have to be taken every day and they can delay orgasm. But the new pill promises same action on an SOS basis. It can be taken an hour or two ahead of the act, just like Viagra.

Emcure has launched the drug under the brand name Sustinex. It comes in a strip of six tablets and costs about Rs 24 per tablet. The drug, which is available for men aged 18 to 64, is a schedule H drug and is sold only under prescription from a sexologist, urologist, psychiatrist or venereologist.

Dapoxetine appears to be effective, based upon two randomized trials of nearly 2000 men with premature ejaculation who were randomly assigned to receive placebo or dapoxetine (30 mg or 60 mg/day). Unlike other SSRIs, which are taken daily, dapoxetine is taken on–demand one to three hours before intercourse. The mean ejaculatory latency time before treatment in all groups was approximately 0.9 minutes, while the mean intervals in the placebo and dapoxetine groups (30 and 60 mg) on treatment were 1.8, 2.8, and 3.3 minutes, respectively. The most common side effect with dapoxetine was nausea (8 and 20 percent with 30 and 60 mg, respectively).

(Ref: Pryor, JL, Althof, SE, Steidle, C, et al. Efficacy and tolerability of dapoxetine in treatment of premature ejaculation: an integrated analysis of two double–blind, randomised controlled trials. Lancet 2006;368:929).

MCI suggests major reforms in undergraduate course

NEW DELHI: The Medical Council of India (MCI) has recommended major reforms in the undergraduate course in medicine by converting conventional education into a competency–based module to develop skilled doctors through early clinical exposure. It has also suggested doubling the intake of medical students to meet the healthcare needs of the country in the coming years.

Distance education

Pointing out that the current undergraduate curriculum in medicine did not make an MBBS degree holder feel equipped with adequate skills and competence to take care of the common problems at the secondary and tertiary level, the Undergraduate Education Working Group has said this factor also prevents young doctors from going to practice in the rural and primary health centres. The goal of training is not focused on providing health care to the needy and the disadvantaged, the eight–member working group has said in its report. It recommends options for distance education towards a fellowship or diploma in areas such as diabetic care, HIV medicine, geriatric medicine, hospital infection control, hospital management, and inclusion of medical ethics, forensic medicine and hospital infection control in the regular curriculum.
Clinical training
Chaired by George Mathew, Principal of the Christian Medical College, Vellore, the group stressed the need for restructuring the MBBS course with a four–year course and six months elective with a one–year internship. Clinical training should be included from the first year itself. (Source: The Hindu, Jan 02, 2011)

Low muscle mass linked to diabetes

Being overweight is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes; however, a new study shows losing weight alone may not be enough to reduce risk of type 2 diabetes in people with low muscle mass and strength, particularly if they are over the age of 60. These are the findings of new research from Dr. Preethi Srikanthan of University of California, Los Angeles, and colleagues who performed a cross–sectional analysis of 14,528 people from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III. Dr. Srikanthan and colleagues concluded that age–related muscle loss, or sarcopenia, was associated with greater insulin resistance; and, sarcopenia, independent of obesity, may be an early predictor of diabetes. This association of sarcopenia and insulin resistance was strongest in those who were 60 years and older, the researchers warn.

Apart from these poor health outcomes, sarcopenia in older adults is also clearly associated with other health outcomes such as increased risk of falls, hip fractures, bone loss (osteopenia) and physical disability. Several earlier studies suggest similarly that a direct correlation exists between sarcopenia in people ages 60 and older and greater risk of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, regardless of body weight.

Ticagrelor may improve CABG survival

Ticagrelor, a new reversible antiplatelet agent ticagrelor was associated with lower mortality from coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) vs standard clopidogrel, according to a subanalysis of the key PLATO trial. In the trial, ticagrelor reduced total mortality by a relative 51% (4.7% vs 9.7%) and cardiovascular mortality by 48% (4.1% vs 7.9%). The study findings are reported online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Orange juice reduces diastolic BP in healthy volunteers

A small study reported in the January issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has found that healthy volunteers who drank orange juice or a control drink with hesperidin for a period of 4 weeks had significantly lower diastolic blood pressure than those individuals who drank a control drink plus placebo.

ACR hybrid score more sensitive than the ACR20 response criteria

Results of a post–hoc analysis show that ACR hybrid is more sensitive than the ACR20 response criteria in detecting response to therapy in rheumatoid arthritis. The hybrid score –– which combines the ACR20/50/70 scores with percent change from baseline in multiple disease domains. The study is reported in the January issue of Arthritis Care & Research.

CPAP for sleep apnea alleviates fatigue, sleepiness

As per results of a small randomized trial reported in the Jan. 1 issue of Sleep, use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment enhances energy and reduces daytime sleepiness in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.

World Medical Association Declaration – WMA 5th World Conference on Medical Education

The prime concern of all Medical Associations in every country should be to dedicate themselves to marshalling the resources needed to provide for and guide quality medical education. This should be done in the context of appropriately sized classes with access to adequate faculty member, facilities and funding.

  • To focus professional and public support for medical education, medical associations in all countries should be acutely aware of the needs, opinions, expectations and personal dignity of their citizens.
  • The goal of medical education should be to produce competent and ethical physicians, who respect their roles in the physician patient relationship.
  • The elements of competence must include knowledge, skills, values behaviors, and ethics which provide quality preventive and curative care for individual patients and the community.
  • Research, teaching and ethical patient care are inseparable and essential to achieving the goal of physician competence.
  • An international core curriculum should be developed that will produce and maintain a competent physician whose skills transcend international borders.
  • Internationally standardize methods of assessing professional competence and performance should be developed and applied in undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education.
  • Free and prompt international dissemination of professionally generated and analyzed medical information should be exchanged on epidemiological and public health problems to guide the development of public policies, the education of physician, and the public.
  • International standards should be established for the evaluation of educational programs across the country.

    ENT Update

Dr. Aru Handa MS, DNB (Department Co–coordinator and Senior Consultant Deptt. Of ENT Moolchand Medcity)

Why ear pain in diabetics should be taken seriously?

Otitis externa (inflammation of external auditory canal) in uncontrolled diabetics and in immunocompromised patients may spread to the soft tissues around external auditory canal leading to malignant/necrotizing otitis externa. The disease causes severe pain in the ear with granulations in external auditory canal. The infection is most commonly due to Pseudomonas. If not treated the infection may cause osteomyelitis along the skull base even going to opposite side via base of sphenoid, lower cranial nerve paralysis, 7th nerve paralysis, involvement of parapharyngeal space, facial bone. A biopsy from the ear and radiological investigations may help in early diagnosis. The disease is managed by controlling underlying condition and prolonged treatment with appropriate antibiotic.

Stroke

You can’t control some stroke risk factors, such as age, family history, sex or race. But you can take these steps to reduce your risk of stroke:

  • Don’t smoke.
  • If you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure, follow your doctor’s treatment recommendations.
  • Limit the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet. Try to avoid trans fat entirely.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Include physical activity in your daily routine.
  • If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar under control.
  • If you choose to drink alcohol, do so only in moderation.
    Legal Question of the Day

(Contributed by Dr MC Gupta, Advocate)

Q. Please answer the following questions:

  • Is it medicolegally correct for a pathologist to give an opinion on a laboratory report to the patient or discuss/explain the report if the patient so requests?
  • Can a pathologist, when consulted by the patient, directly advise further pathology investigations on the basis of other pathological reports so as to reduce the time for proper diagnosis/treatment in the interest of the patient (such as: Advising urine culture on finding pus cells in urine)?

A.

  • In response to the first question, we should not be unnecessarily tagged to the word "medico–legal". Your question is simply this "Is it against law for a pathologist to give opinion on a pathological report at the request of the patient?" The answer is obvious. It is not against any law.
  • In response to the second question also the same principle applies. The answer is "the pathologist can advise".
  • Please note that the patient may potentially allege later that the above opinion/advice resulted in damage to him and may claim damages from the pathologist. At that time the pathologist cannot repudiate the claim by saying that no fee was charged for rendering such opinion/advice.
  • A sound legal approach is as follows:
    • It is better for the pathologist to tell the patient that he should discuss the issue with his treating physician or should ask the treating physician to discuss the issue with the pathologist.
    • If any opinion or advice is rendered by the pathologist, he should feel free to charge fee for the same. This would decrease the tendency to seek/give free advice. The system of charging fee would, to some extent, compensate for any compensation for which the pathologist may be held liable later.
 
    Medilaw – Medicolegal Judgement

(Dr KK Aggarwal)

Lord Bridge stated:

"I recognize the logical force of the Canterbury doctrine, proceeding from the premise that the patient’s right to make his own decision must at all costs be safeguarded against the kind of medical paternalism which assumes that ‘doctor knows best’. But, with all respect, I regard the doctrine as quite impractical in application for three principal reasons. First, it gives insufficient weight to the realities of the doctor/patient relationship. A very wide variety of factors must enter into a doctor’s clinical judgment not only as to what treatment is appropriate for a particular patient, but also as to how best to communicate to the patient the significant factors necessary to enable the patient to make an informed decision whether to undergo the treatment. The doctor cannot set out to educate the patient to his own standard of medical knowledge of all the relevant factors involved. He may take the view, certainly with some patients that the very fact of his volunteering, without being asked, information of some remote risk involved in the treatment proposed, even though he described it as remote, may lead to that risk assuming an undue significance in the patient’s calculations. Second, it would seem to me quite unrealistic in any Medical Negligence action to confine the expert Medical evidence to an explanation of the primary Medical factors involved and to deny the court the benefit of evidence of Medical opinion and practice on the particular issue of disclosure which is under consideration. Third, the objective test which Canterbury propounds seems to me to be so imprecise as to be almost meaningless. If it is to be left to individual judges to decide for themselves what "a reasonable person in the patient’s position’ would consider a risk of sufficient significance that he should be told about it, the outcome of litigation in this field is likely to be quite unpredictable."

Lord Bridge however made it clear that when questioned specifically by the patient about the risks involved in a particular treatment proposed, the doctor’s duty is to answer truthfully and as fully as the questioner requires. He further held that remote risk of damage (referred to as risk at 1 or 2%) need not be disclosed but if the risk of damage is substantial (referred to as 10% risk), it may have to be disclosed. Lord Scarman, in minority, was inclined to adopt the more stringent test laid down in Canterbury.

    Lab Update

(Dr Arpan Gandhi and Dr Navin Dang)

Immunofluorescence Technique

Immunofluorescence (labeling of antibodies or antigens with fluorescent dyes) is often used to visualize the subcellular distribution of biomolecules of interest. Immunofluorescent–labeled tissue sections or cultures are studied using a fluorescence microscope. Immunofluorescence employs two sets of antibodies: a primary antibody is used against the antigen of interest; a subsequent, secondary ("indirect"), dye–coupled antibody is introduced that recognizes the primary antibody.

An Inspirational Story
(Contributed by Dr Prachi Garg)

Pickup in the Rain

One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her – generally unheard of in those conflict–filled 1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxi cab. She seemed to be in a big hurry! She wrote down his address, thanked him and drove away.

Seven days went by and a knock came on the man’s door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached. It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes but my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband’s bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."

Lessons:

  • Offer help to anyone who needs it
  • Thank others for helping you.
  • If you help someone. Someone will help you.

Skeleton in the Closet

A very large, old, building was being torn down in Chicago to makeroom for a new skyscraper. Due to its proximity to other buildings it could not be imploded and had to be dismantled floor by floor.

While working on the 49th floor, two construction workers found a skeleton in a small closet behind the elevator shaft. They decided that they should call the police.

When the police arrived they directed them to the closet and showed them the skeleton fully clothed and standing upright. They said, "This could be Jimmy Hoffa or somebody really important."

Two days went by and the construction workers couldn't stand it any more; they had to know who they had found. They called the police and said, "We are the two guys who found the skeleton in the closet and we want to know if it was Jimmy Hoffa or somebody important."

The police said, "It’s not Jimmy Hoffa, but it was somebody kind of important."

"Well, who was it?"

"The 1956 Blonde National Hide–and–Seek Champion."

Have Leg Artery Blockages? Walk on a Treadmill

A planned program of walking is good for people with blockage of leg blood vessels called peripheral arterial disease (PAD) said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

Normally when there is pain in the calf muscles in the leg on walking the general tendency is to rest and not walk. A study published in JAMA of 156 people with PAD showed that regular six–minute walks on a treadmill improved their endurance and quality of life.

The study examined patients with symptoms and without symptoms. Over the six months of the study, the participants who did their regular six–minute treadmill walks increased their walking distance by about 69 feet, while those who did not walk regularly saw a decrease of 49 feet.

There is the potential for greater oxygen extraction from the blood under maximum exercise conditions. The muscles can make better use of blood flow and the oxygen release that comes from it.

Such exercise leads to improvement in "collateral circulation" –– growth in the number of blood vessels supplying the legs. Clinicians should urge all PAD patients, whether or not they have symptoms, to engage in a regular, supervised exercise program.

Walking is a standard recommendation for people with PAD. A recommended regimen is a 40–minute walk three times a week for at least six months.

Persistent leg pain is an indication that help is needed. In the absence of that symptom, physicians can test for PAD by measuring the difference in blood pressure between an ankle and an arm.
