Why do some people treated for psoriatic arthritisstop responding to their treatmenté Find out next.Study Confirms High Prevalence of ADAAdalimumabTreated Psoriasis Graeme M. Lipper, writingMedscape described a recent study that might shed lighton why some treatments for psoriatic arthritis may fail over time.Menting, Lumig, DeVries and colleagues published the results of a recent study entitledExtent and Consequences of Antibody Formation Against AdalimumabPatients With Psoriasis:OneYear Followup Adalimumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody(IgG1) that binds to and inactivates the proinflammatory

cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha, is ahighly effective treatment for moderate to severe psoriatic arthritis. Unfortunately,this ug may induce antiug antibodies (ADAs)almost one half of patients taking adalimumablongterm, and prior studies show that ADAs contribute to disease relapse and waning therapeuticresponse to adalimumab and other biologic therapies.In their study they found that 49 % of patients developed ADAs, with the vast majority (90%)forming antibody titers within the first 24 weeks of therapy.Comment: Interesting and answers a lot of questions about failing therapy.

Best Docs Network Dallas Fort Worth June 2 2013

It's a call that's telling me I'm here toserve. It's a need to make a differencethe world. 24 hours day or night these healinghands will make it right. Lookingtheir eyes I know that I'm changing lives, changinglives, changing lives for the better, for the better, changing lives. And hi again everyone,Jim Knox along with Kandace Krueger and welcome back to another edition of the Best Docs Networkwhich features some of the best sthe entire Dallas, Fort Worth area, Kandace,that helped change people's lives. That's right, we'll start off with our first best, it's pain management Ken Reed who helps another one of his patientswith their migraines. My migraine started

March of 2009 from a faulty spinal tap anight from there like my migraine never went away. I've gotten many treatments, a lot ofmediions and I've seen countless s and I just didn't get any relief. My mom andI went to Reed and he felt like I was like the perfect applicant for the stimulator.I remember when Anew camefor the perma unit, we had to decide which side to put thebattery on. It goesthe upper outer kind of rear gluteal region. Anew wanted it onI believe the left side because he's a baseball player. He slides on his right side so hewanted it on his left side. Which brings up an excellent point about the stimulators,there's no restrictions. Here's this very

active young man, baseball player slidingleft and right and no problem. He has done absolutely fine with the stimulator. So Igot my permanent stimulators implanted and they put a little battery right at the hipand it runs up your back and I have two leadsmy back, two leads on my temples and twoleads right here and I'm able to control the frequency and the intensity of the stimulationwith a remote. It's amazing what Reed has done and I'm so appreciative. He cameback recently having lost a lot of weight. He had lost so much weight, the little batteryhad gotten more superficial and I needed to replace it a bit deeper in. But he was doinggreat with it. He was looking forward to going

to college up at Texas Techa year. Likea lot of patients he's done very, very well. I think it's safe to say that it's changedhis life, certainly changed it for the better. I don't care about having these batteriesand these wires inside of me, I'm just so happy that my migraines have gone away. It'samazing what Reed has done. Welcome. Today we're joined by Denton Cooley, a nativeHoustonian and the actual founder of the Texas Heart Institute. What a pleasure to be withyou today Cooley. Thank you for joining us. You're welcome and thank you for visitingour institution. Can you tell us a little background about how the Texas Heart Institutebecame an entityé Well it I think began in

the mid 1950's when open heart surgery wasfirst introducedour Texas Medical Center and before long my program here at St. Luke'sand Chilen's was probably the most prolific of all institutionsthe countryincluding the Mayo and Cleveland and everything. We had a simplified techniqueof open heart surgery and soon began a leadership positionthis new field of cardiac surgery.Well then I decided to create this institute1962 so it's been a little over 50 yearsago. What is your most vivid memory about the Texas Heart Institute, about any typeof incredible learning that has been occurring here, what's your greatest memoryé Well ofcourse our heart institute was created with

two objectives, that is, research and eduion.Soeach of those aspects of our history I think there are certain exciting thingsthat have happened. And when the Texas Heart Institute first came into being cardio thoracicsurgery was high on the list of available procedures to be done for patients. Now wehave the artificial heart and the LVAD's and so would you tell the audience about thatéWell I think that it shows the evolution of cardiac surgery. First we started off replacingjust some of the components of the human heart, that is the valves and the great vessels andmodifying the ventricles and that sort of thing. And then the big breakthrough camein 1968 when we did the first successful heart
