Podcast 58: A repeat of the July 31 interview with the CDC’s Denise Jamieson on treating pregnant women who have suspected 2009 H1N1.

Pregnant women are at greater risk for flu complications. This week, we repeat a conversation with a CDC researcher who’d just published a paper in Lancet urging prompt treatment with antivirals, even in the face of pending lab results.

Podcast 56: A conversation with two JAMA staffers on their research into “ghost” authorship and “honorary” authorship in the principal medical journals.

We’ve seen research into this area before — 18 months ago, in fact. (We interviewed Joseph Ross back then in Podcast #2.) This time we interview Joseph Wislar, a survey-research specialist at JAMA, and Annette Flanagin, its managing deputy editor. They’ve just presented the abstracted results of a survey on ghost and honorary authorship that […]

Podcast 55: A conversation with Prof. Gilles Montalescot about his JAMA paper on immediate versus delayed intervention in non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome

French researchers find that in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome, delaying intervention until the next day does not affect the occurrence of death, MI, or the need for urgent revascularization by the one-month mark.

Dr. Miquel Ferrer of the University of Barcelona took some time away from his holiday to talk with us about an article he’s just published in Lancet.

Podcast 51: In pregnant women with suspected H1N1, treat promptly! A conversation with Denise Jamieson of the CDC.

It’s simple: pregnant women (for un-simple reasons) are at greater risk for flu complications. It’s true even among hitherto apparently healthy patients. We’ve got a conversation with a CDC researcher who’s just published a paper in Lancet that urges prompt treatment, even in the face of pending lab results, with antivirals. Contact us at 1-617-440-4374. […]

Podcast 40: Tight control in type 2 diabetes — time to loosen up? A conversation with Mayo’s Victor Montori.

The Annals of Internal Medicine published an intriguing essay online last week about tight glycemic control in type 2 diabetes. Its authors argue that we’ve got it all wrong: imposing tight controls is only subjecting patients to stresses — related to the complexities and costs of treatment — that make control less likely to succeed.
