California makes it harder for insurers to deny autism treatment

By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, California (Reuters) - California on Wednesday made it harder for health insurers to deny or delay coverage of key interventions for children with autism, the latest in an ongoing series of actions by U.S. states to help families obtain the expensive therapies. In tightening its rules on covering behavioral intervention for children with autism, California is tackling a problem encountered by numerous states seeking to improve access to therapies for children with autism, the state's top regulator said. "The insurance companies deny the treatment, or they delay, delay, delay," California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said in an interview. The new rules make it clear that insurers must cover behavioral interventions for children with autism at the same level that they cover visits to a medical doctor, Jones said.

Defend 'Obamacare' unabashedly, some Democrats say

FILE -This Dec. 5, 2012 file photo shows Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. on Capitol Hill in Washington. The political climate for “Obamacare” suddenly looks brighter, possibly giving Democrats a chance to fight back on the GOP’s top issue this fall. Democrats in at least one tight Senate race are openly embracing the new health law’s popular features, but several others are holding back. Republicans say the somewhat upbeat news _ higher enrollments, and lower cost projections _ won’t do much to change Americans’ negative view of the health care law. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File) WASHINGTON (AP) — The outlook for the president's health care overhaul suddenly appears brighter, and some Democrats are saying it's time for the party to openly embrace the law that Republicans consider their best campaign weapon.


Study: Diabetic heart attacks and strokes falling

The research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was reported in the Thursday, April 17, 2014 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Experts say video doesn't show Earhart wreckage

FILE - In this undated file photo, Amelia Earhart stands next to a Lockheed Electra 10E, before her last flight in 1937 from Oakland, Calif., bound for Honolulu on the first leg of her record-setting attempt to circumnavigate the world westward along the Equator. American aviator Earhart’s disappearance in 1937 is among aviation’s most enduring mysteries. Earhart, the first female pilot to cross the Atlantic Ocean, vanished over the Pacific with Fred Noonan during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. Seven decades later, people are still transfixed with the mystery. Theories range from her simply running out of fuel and crashing to her staging her own disappearance and secretly returning to the U.S. to live under another identity. (AP Photo/File) CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Experts retained by an aircraft preservation group say underwater video shot in the South Pacific yields no evidence of the wreckage of the missing plane piloted by aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart.

FSA to test for lamb meat substitution

(Reuters) - The Foods Standards Agency (FSA) said it will begin a new round of tests on lamb takeaway meals from restaurants across the UK after the consumer watchdog found evidence of cheaper substitutes such as beef and chicken. The FSA said local authorities were being asked to test 300 samples from restaurants providing takeaway meals and report their findings to the agency. An FSA review of local authority sampling data from July to December 2013 found that 43 out of 145 samples of lamb takeaway meals contained meat other than lamb. No samples were found to contain horse meat, it said.

New kind of trial aims to speed cancer drug development

File photo shows a visitor looking at plastinated lungs at an Gunther Von Hagens exhibition in Lima By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists and drugmakers are pioneering a new kind of clinical trial that changes the way cancer drugs are studied, potentially cutting both the time and cost of bringing them to market. Instead of testing one drug at a time, a novel lung cancer study announced on Thursday will allow British researchers to test up to 14 drugs from AstraZeneca and Pfizer at the same time within one trial. The aim is to quickly pinpoint medicines that can fight advanced lung cancer by targeting specific rare genetic mutations - and it upends the normal approach of putting a particular drug at the centre of a study. Harpal Kumar, chief executive of charity Cancer Research UK, which is working on the 25-million-pound project with the two drugmakers, said the new approach would "re-write the rule book on how we do clinical trials".

Off-season may not be enough for football players' brains

By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The time between football seasons may not be enough for players' brains to recover from hard hits to their heads during games and practices, suggests a new, small study. Researchers discovered changes in the white matter of 10 college football players' brains after one season, compared to people who didn't play sports. After six months of not playing, the athletes' brains were still different. "Our best guess is that it's mild brain injury - the same kind of injury that the brain would undergo after having a concussion," Dr. Jeffrey Bazarian told Reuters Health.

Diabetes complications show significant decline in past two decades

By Gene Emery NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Diabetes is becoming increasingly common in the United States, but the risks of complications from the blood sugar disease have declined since 1990, according to a new study. Better preventive care for adults with diabetes contributed to a 68 percent drop in their risk of heart attacks and a 64 percent drop in deaths from high blood sugar. The risks of strokes and lower-limb amputations both fell by about one half, researchers found, and there was a 28 percent drop in cases of kidney disease so serious that dialysis or a transplant was required. ...
