Data from several studies have indicated the need for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as early as possible, according to a report published in The Lancet Rheumatology.1 Early arthritis treatment has been used to improve long term outcomes and minimize structural damage resulting from both local and systemic inflammation. In addition, many researchers believe that treatment will be most effective with early intervention (eg, within 6 weeks after symptom onset).2 A recent study that included patients at risk for RA also found that multiple pathologic processes can be observed before symptoms develop, promoting the need for early intervention.3 Furthermore, data from a meta analysis4 found that patients who consulted with a rheumatologist 6 weeks vs 7 to 12 weeks and gt;12 weeks after symptom onset were 1.7 times more likely to achieve disease modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) free remission. This trend of being less likely to achieve DMARD free remission was observed to continue with initial visits after 12 weeks of symptom onset. Since DMARD free remission is considered a highly desirable outcome for patients with RA, the evidence supports more aggressive treatment during early stages of the disease. Authors of this report indicated that further assessing remission data (eg, at 5 years of DMARD free remission) could be useful in determining rates of sustained remission. Despite these findings, there was little difference in structural damage among patients with different time to encounters, which may be at odds with the long standing hypothesis that earlier intervention leads to minimized structural damage; however, this lack of correlation could suggest that small degrees of damage are less important for outcomes in patients who receive early treatment.Continue ReadingOverall, the authors of this report concluded that findings from various studies confirm the need for rapid referral and treatment of RA after symptom onset.

It has been 20 years since the gastroenterologist Andrew Wakefield co authored a now notorious and debunked medical paper that claimed to have found a link between autism and the use of a common children s vaccine. The paper, later retracted by The Lancet, helped lead to a drop off in vaccination rates and an increase in outbreak diseases such as measles, not only in Britain and Europe, but in the US. The doctor was subsequently found guilty by the British General Medical Council (GMC) of three dozen charges, including dishonesty and abuse of children, and struck off the medical register.
The struggling department store chain is selling 16 stores on the online auction site Real Insight Marketplace, which is working in partnership with commercial real estate services firm Cushman amp; Wakefield. The novel approach to selling stores is part of ongoing efforts by Sears Holdings, which also operates the Kmart chain, to extract money from its real estate to protect its financial liquidity amid chronic and deep sales declines. The stores being auctioned are for the most part connected to suburban malls and are located in Texas, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.According to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news, the Sears stores are being marketed as sale and lease back deals. While Sears has closed hundreds of stores in recent years, in many cases it has also simply sold a store and then leased it back to continue operating a store, or shrunk the space it occupies in a store and renting out the rest to a tenant, which have included retailers like Whole Foods Market in the past.

Way back in 1971, Wakefield Poole s gay porn film Boys in the Sand did more than arouse people. It became a legit hit at New York s 55th Street Playhouse, attracted a mixed crowd, including some surprising glitterati, and paved the way for the acceptance of porn on a mainstream level. Starring the blonde, game Cal Culver (who dubbed himself Casey Donovan after appearing in a film called Casey), Boys in the Sand was nicely photographed on Fire Island (on a budget) and had pleasantly evocative music backing its explicit sex acts a far cry from the raunchy stuff that was running in 42nd Street porn theaters at the time. It was gay positive, sex positive, and cash positive. Poole who had been a Broadway dancer choreographer entered a blazing new realm, and to keep the theater connection going, money made from Boys in the Sand actually helped fund the workshops for the musical classic A Chorus Line Poole was dubbed a naughty groundbreaker and went on to direct films like Bijou (1972), Bible (1974), and the inevitable Boys in the Sand II (1984). And now, he s the centerpiece of the documentary I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole, directed by Jim Tushinski. Starting today, the doc will be available for digital rental on Amazon Instant, iTunes, Google Play and Vimeo on Demand, also streaming on Fandor, along with Poole s famous films.

It s a subject that can test even the happiest of marriages: that of whether, and when, to send the children to boarding school. Last week Mike Tindall revealed he had no plans to follow Royal tradition and send his daughter, Mia, to board despite the fact that Mia s mother, Zara Phillips, and a long line of Royals before her, including Prince Philip and Prince Charles, attended the elite Gordonstoun school in Scotland. I know many people who say boarding was the making of them...but I don t really want her to be distanced from us, said the former England rugby captain, who attended Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Wakefield as a day student. Personally, I d rather she attend a school that s nearby, where we ll always be on hand if she needs us. Anything else goes against my instincts.
In 1998, Wakefield wrote a paper claiming he had found a link between autism and gastrointestinal problems. The paper did not find a link between vaccines and autism, but in a subsequent press conference, Wakefield said he thought the MMR vaccines should be given individually, and not as a set. Wakefield worried that the MMR vaccine could hurt a child's immune system and allow the measles virus to invade the intestines. Proteins that leak from the intestines could reach neurons in the brain, he wrote, affecting brain function. Dozens of studies since have refuted Wakefield's claims. One study, which examined close to 100,000 children. The study found absolutely no link between autism and the MMR vaccine.
