Austin's story
 
03:41
It seemed as if it would be a completely ordinary holiday, that Thanksgiving in 2009. John and Michele Streitmatter were at home near Tampa with their three young sons. Dinner was on the table and a family memory was in the making. But it was not the memory they expected. During the meal, the middle son, Austin, continually moved his leg and had trouble sitting. He wouldn't have been the first 8-year-old to ever fidget at the table, but this was different — his body was moving on its own.

Parkinson treatment shows positive results in clinical testing
 
01:53
Researchers from the University of Florida and 14 additional medical centers reported results today in the online version of The Lancet Neurology journal indicating that deep brain stimulation — also known as DBS — is effective at improving motor symptoms and quality of life in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease. The study, sponsored by St. Jude Medical Inc., tested the safety and effectiveness of a constant current DBS device developed by St. Jude Medical to manage the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. The device aimed to reduce tremors, improve the slowness of movement, decrease the motor disability of the disease and reduce involuntary movements called dyskinesia, which are a common side effect of Parkinson's drugs.

UF delivers promise of personalized medicine to heart patients
 
02:01
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Personalized medicine — a concept in which an understanding of a patient's genetic makeup is used to enhance treatment — has arrived at UF&Shands, the University of Florida Academic Health Center. Under a new standard of care, UF doctors are helping to ward off heart attacks or strokes after heart procedures by taking a person's genetic information into account before prescribing medications that prevent blood clots. Starting today, patients at Shands at UF medical center who undergo a procedure that involves passing a thin tube into the left side of the heart in order to diagnose or treat heart disease will now be routinely screened for biological signals in their blood that give clues about how they might respond to a common anticlotting drug called clopidogrel, also sold as Plavix.

Bed alarms not proven to prevent patient falls in hospitals, UF researchers say
 
01:44
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Equipping hospital beds with alarms does not decrease patient falls and related injuries, according to University of Florida researchers and colleagues. The findings, published today (Nov. 20) in the Annals of Internal Medicine, cast doubt on the merits of the widely touted alarms as a patient safety tool. "The idea that hospitals can magically eliminate the problem of falls by investing a lot of money and effort into bed alarms is not well-founded," said lead researcher Ron Shorr, M.D., a professor of epidemiology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions and College of Medicine and director of the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center at the Malcom Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center. "Does that mean bed alarms should never be used in hospitals? No — I think that alarms may have a use within the context of a well-developed fall prevention program." Funded by the National Institute of Health's National Institute on Aging, the study adds to the sparse data that exist on the effectiveness of alarms in fall prevention in hospitals, and could help inform the design and application of fall-reduction strategies. About one-quarter of falls among hospitalized patients result in injury, according to an analysis in the journal Clinics in Geriatric Medicine. Older adults are particularly at risk. Accidental falls lead to complications in 2 percent of hospital stays, according to various studies, including from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. And falls extend hospital stays and raise treatment costs by more than $4,000 per patient, on average, according to an analysis in the American Journal of Medicine. In 2008, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services stopped paying hospitals for excess costs incurred for treating injuries related to inpatient falls.

UF hosts national compounding competition for student pharmacists
 
01:32
The University of Florida College of Pharmacy hosted the second annual Student Pharmacist Compounding Competition in March, welcoming national leaders in compounding pharmacy and students competing from 14 U.S. pharmacy colleges. The weekend competition, sponsored by Medisca Group of Companies, was organized in three phases. Each university team of three student pharmacists conducted and documented a drug compounding preparation; prepared a written response to a posed regulatory issue; and presented a poster to illustrate the response. "The students participating in the competition were some of the best and brightest in the country. Given the high-pressure environment they were competing in, the preparations and responses they achieved were more like those of a practicing pharmacist, rather than of a student," said Rick Schnatz, Pharm.D, senior scientific liaison at U.S. Pharmacopeia and keynote speaker. Read the USP news announcement. UF Pharmacy Dean William H. Riffee, Ph.D. sees the competition as a way for education to foster the growth, development and integrity of the art and science of compounding. "Our many U.S. colleges of pharmacy have made great strides in providing quality pharmacy education with unique learning opportunities for students, and meeting the challenge of industry demands," Riffee said.

Gym equipment unlikely source of MRSA
 
01:48
A sweat-drenched treadmill seems a likely haven for germs to set up housekeeping, including the dangerous antibiotic-resistant bug MRSA. This is one of the reasons why most fitness centers sanitize equipment and supply members with antibacterial wipes. But these aggressive cleaning policies may not actually be necessary to prevent the spread of community-acquired form of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, according to a new University of Florida study published today (March 3) in the American Journal of Infection Control.
