Mouse study suggests hearing loss risks from antibiotic drug

Antibiotic drugs are important weapons in the health care arsenal. Unfortunately, they also represent something of two-edged sword. They can knock out potentially deadly bacterial infections in the body. But experts generally agree that overuse has allowed bacteria to develop resistance. Some antibiotics aren't as effective as they once might have been.

FDA issues new 'scope' superbug prevention procedures

The use of the duodenoscope, which is used to examine a part of the small intestine, has been linked to the outbreak of drug-resistant so-called "superbugs" at hospitals in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the U.S. While some of the victims have filed product liability lawsuits against one of the device's leading manufacturers, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a new list of measures intended to clean the device between uses.

Studies published on SSRI antidepressants and birth defects

Study suggests simple way to improve chemo drug performance

Chemotherapy is a powerful tool in the fight against many different forms of cancer. The problem with it is that the chemicals that are used can be deadly. Doctors don't want to give patients too much of the stuff. If they do, the intended cure could be worse than the disease.

New studies released on Xarelto bleeding

Medical science and countless victims have known all about the risks of gastrointestinal bleeding associated with the anticoagulant Xarelto (rivaroxaban). The bleeding risk is at the center of Xarelto lawsuits that are being filed across the nation by bleeding victims or by their surviving next-of-kin who have sought legal counsel and who have decided not to suffer in silence. Nevertheless, a pair of studies published in 2015 focus - if you will - on eye bleeding.

Improving the way drugs are tested and marketed

Sometimes there is good news and not-so-good news in a trial that tests the effectiveness and safety of a potential new drug.
