Alcoholics tend to end up being deficient in both cognitive and emotional processes Previously, most brain-imaging research centered on cognition rather than emotion. A fresh study uses useful magnetic imaging to examine emotional processing, discovering that alcoholics possess stunted skills to perceive dangerous circumstances. Results are released in the September problem of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research.This morning the Food and Medication Administration reported that two manufacturers plan extra releases at the end of this week, of February by the end, and continuing into March, which it anticipates will meet up with all patient needs. While the Society is happy with this announcement, we understand the shortage is still important at many sites throughout the country and desire the FDA to ensure that once supplies are available, hematologists can have information on how to access this therapy for his or her critically ill patients. ASH has been spending so much time to handle the shortage, including reporting shortages to the FDA and Congress and urging the FDA to take immediate action to identify other producers to meet up demand, import items from abroad, and establish a crisis supply once there’s a release in order that supplies can be easily accessed.
