Highlights in Family Medicine

Visceral adipose tissue predicts subclinical carotid atherosclerosis

As reported in Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, ultrasound measurement of visceral adipose tissue, unlike the waist circumference, is associated with ultrasound-measured carotid intima-media thickness and an independent predictor of carotid plaques.

Belimumab safe and effective in childhood-onset SLE

As reported in Arthritis and Rheumatology, belimumab (a human monoclonal antibody targeting soluble B-lymphocyte stimulator) is effective and well-tolerated in children with SLE (n=7). The mean follow-up was 9.3 months. The SLEDAI decreased from 6.4 to 4 and 57% of recipients were able to taper steroids. Clinical response was evident by 3 months.

CT screening for lung cancer in patients 55-80 years of age beneficial

As reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine, annual CT screening of ever-smokers between 55 and 80 years of age for lung cancer is beneficial. Such screening would result in 45-54% of diagnoses in stage I or II, a 14% reduction in lung cancer mortality, and 497 deaths averted.
