Fda news release - raw alfalfa sprouts linked to salmonella contamination
Written by NetDoc.com Medical News Feed   

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today recommended that consumers not eat raw alfalfa sprouts, including sprout blends containing alfalfa sprouts, until further notice because the product has been linked to Salmonella serotype Saintpaul contamination. Other types of sprouts have not been implicated at this time.
  
The investigation indicates that the problem may be linked to contamination of seeds for alfalfa sprouts. Because suspect lots of seeds may be sold around the country and may account for a large proportion of the alfalfa seeds currently being used by sprout growers, and cases of illness are spread across multiple states, FDA and CDC are issuing this general advisory.

FDA will work with the alfalfa sprout industry to help identify which seeds and alfalfa sprouts are not connected with this contamination, so that this advisory can be changed as quickly as possible.

integrated regional networks give communities rapid access
Written by NetDoc.com Medical News Feed   
Specialized, coordinated emergency networks dramatically reduce time-to-treatment for patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)—the most dangerous type of heart attack— according to a new study published in the April 2009 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Cardiovascular Interventions.

 

STEMI involves the sudden blockage of one of the three big coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart. Rapid intervention with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by specialists performing balloon angioplasty and stenting restores blood flow, saves heart muscle, and reduces the likelihood of death. Although primary PCI in the cardiac cath lab is the best treatment for a STEMI heart attack, it is a highly complex, multi-disciplinary and time-sensitive intervention that is only available in one out of five U.S. hospitals.
