The results of The Acreage cancer study were finally revealed on Friday.   According to the Florida Department of Heath, people in the community may be experiencing elevated levels of cancer.    While the report was not clear if the findings point to a cancer cluster in The Acreage,  the  Palm Beach Post said that the Florida health department is now set to launch a second phase of its investigation.

HIV Drug Associated with Deadly Skin Reactions

The maker of the HIV drug Intelence (etravirine) has warned that it has been associated with severe, and sometimes life-threatening skin reactions, which may be accompanied by liver failure.  According to a letter to health care providers from Johnson & Johnson’s Tibotec division,  those reactions include Stevens-Johnson syndrome and   toxic epidermal necrolysis.

Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a hypersensitivity complex affecting the skin and the mucous membrane.  The disorder causes blistering of mucous membranes, typically in the mouth, eyes, and vagina, and patchy areas of rash.  Toxic epidermal necrolysis presents with a similar blistering of mucous membranes. However, in addition to blistering, the entire epidermis peels off in sheets from large areas of the body. Both disorders can be life threatening. (more…)
