SCIENCE ARTICLE REPORTS DIRECT LINK BETWEEN BACTERIAL INFECTIONS AND HEART DISEASE -- CEDARS SINAI CLINICAL TRIAL STUDYING EFFECTIVENESS OF COMMON ANTIBIOTIC IN PREVENTING RECURRENT HEART ATTACKS
A common, inexpensive antibiotic could reduce a second heart attack in patients who have already suffered an acute heart attack.

WITH ALLERGY SEASON APPROACHING, NEW MEDICATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
Too many people suffer needlessly with allergies, according to Zab Mohsenifar, M.D., director of the Division of Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. In many parts of the country, allergy season begins in early to mid-March when pollens produced by a proliferation of blooming flowers, grasses and weeds attack allergy sufferers. Although studies suggest that the number of people with allergies is growing, there are now highly effective medications available that do not produce unwanted side effects such as drowsiness.
