    More pandemic-style price fixing won’t help global health

    This week, 19 House Ways and Means Committee members wrote to President Biden opposing broadening the pandemic-era waiver on intellectual property protections for COVID-19 vaccines. Despite evidence that the waiver failed to foster developing countries’ access to these vaccines, left serious supply-chain deficits unresolved and threatened future drug development and innovation, the Biden administration and World Trade Organization are contemplating extending it to include COVID-19 diagnostic tools and therapeutics. Undermining pharma giants and blaming them for excessive profits off patented medicines — even as these companies benefit from billions in public contracts and government-authorized liability waivers — has a lot of populist appeal. Unfortunately, fixing the price of intellectual property at zero deters new American drugs from being developed and brought to market, thus jeopardizing the…

    National Institutes Of Environmental Health Sciences Highlight Professor Upal Ghosh’s Work Cleaning Contaminated Waterways

    The positive environmental and health impacts of work led by Upal Ghosh, professor of chemical, biochemical, and environmental engineering at UMBC, was recently highlighted by the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). The agency showcased a low-cost technology that Ghosh and his colleagues developed to clean waterways contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), a group of likely carcinogenic chemicals that were used in insulation, coolants, and electrical equipment for decades before being banned in the U.S. in 1979.  The chemicals are stable and persist in the environment, often accumulating in fish that live in contaminated waterways and posing a risk to humans who consume those fish. NIEHS funded Ghosh’s research…

    IVF court ruling further upends women’s health care in Alabama

    AUBURN, Ala. — She removed the tiny vials from her refrigerator and began filling syringes laid out on her dining room table, determined to continue injections that could make her a mother. “I am going to keep fighting,” said Gabrielle “Gabby” Goidel, wincing as her husband gave her the first shot of an in vitro fertilization cycle precisely timed so a doctor could extract eggs, fertilize them and implant embryos before month’s end. Just a few days earlier, Alabama’s Supreme Court had ruled that frozen embryos are children and that people can be held liable for destroying them. The outcome had thrown countless women’s hopes and plans into doubt. Already,…

    Dietitian Explains Health Benefits and Foods to Try

    A new study is shedding light on the health benefits of the Atlantic diet. Like the Mediterranean diet, this style of eating is based on the dietary patterns of people living in a specific region of Europe, but this one hones in on northwest Spain and northern Portugal. These populations have some of the lowest incidences of heart disease. The most recent study in JAMA Network found that those who followed the Atlantic diet for a 6-month period had a lower risk of developing metabolic syndrome, a group of condition that increase risk of heart disease and diabetes. While this research is promising, the Atlantic diet is not that well-known. But…
