The "gold standard" for diagnosing a urinary tract infection (UTI) has been culturing the bacteria, waiting for it to grow, and after 24 to 48 hours, examining the results under a microscope. An alternative is to do a molecular test by analyzing the DNA of the bacteria. With this method, the bacterial strain can be correctly identified and any resistance to antibiotics can be determined. Diagnosing UTI's by using the molecular test method takes only about 5 hours. Hospitals and clinics can test bacterial DNA by using diagnostic kits manufactured by medical manufacturing companies. | Read More →Words: 448 Downloads: 0 Category: Drugs & Remedies By: K. R. Keene

Children who have a peanut allergy lead careful lives. Avoidance of peanuts and peanut products is of paramount importance. If an allergic child has ever had a close call, and gone into anaphylactic shock after accidentally eating or coming into contact with peanuts, diligence and fear can become a dominant part of their everyday lives. There is no cure for peanut allergy. But a new drug, Palforzia, was approved by the FDA in August 2020 and it can help build a tolerance to peanuts. A strict protocol must be followed when taking the drug, and for those who make it through the program, allergic reactions to peanuts become less frequent and less severe. Up to two peanuts can be ingested without causing an allergic reaction. | Read More →Words: 846 Downloads: 0 Category: Drugs & Remedies By: K. R. Keene
Since the FDA began allowing pharmaceutical companies to advertise on TV in 1997, the airwaves have become saturated with drug ads. Many of these ads are targeted to older people, who may have the diseases that the drugs are touted to relieve. In spite of the difficulty for the average person to obtain the drugs, since they are available only with a prescription from a doctor, the ads are successful in boosting sales.
