3-D printed meds for kids

Researchers are developing a new method of pharmaceutical 3D printing for children. They plan to design tablets into kid-friendly shapes, flavors, and doses. While the project’s focus is on pediatric AIDS, researchers believe it will become applicable to a wide variety of medications for children and adults alike.

FDA reviewers say OTC decongestant doesn’t work

The Food and Drug Administration has determined that oral phenylephrine does not work as a nasal decongestant. Nearly half of U.S. households today purchase over the counter medications containing phenylephrine, many doing so multiple times a year. The FDA document noted that buyers should make alternative choices but did not provide guidance on what those should be.

Dog bite deaths on the rise

Deaths from dog bites reached an all-time high in 2021, a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention proves. From 2011-2021, 468 deaths from dog attacks occurred. In recent years, more females than males were killed.
