SOUND THERAPY FOR TINNITUS A sound-emitting device worn in the ear during sleep has been shown to train the brain to ignore chronic ringing in the ears, a new study suggests. People with the disorder, known as tinnitus, who used the devices felt less bothered than patients who used bedside noise machines, researchers found in a study funded by the device manufacturer. Tinnitus is caused by exposure to loud noise. While sound therapy is one of the treatments doctors recommend, it doesn’t work for all patients. For the current study, researchers assigned 60 patients with tinnitus to sleep with one of three sound therapy devices: a customized in-ear


device that played sounds matched to the ringing sounds patients typically heard; an in-ear device that let patients select a preset sound; or a bedside noise machine. After three months of


treatment, patients using the in-ear device reported a greater reduction in the perceived loudness of tinnitus than other participants.

ANTIBACTERIA WIPES: WASTE OF MONEY Those antibacterial wipes


aren’t as eff ective as you think. Experts with the BBC’s Trust Me, I’m a Doctor show discovered


microbes grow back within 12 hours of using


the wipes. Dr. Clare Lanyon, a


biomedical scientist from Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne, added that some bacterial colonies begin reforming within minutes. Her advice: Use simple soap and water, which appear to do a better job of cleaning kitchen counters of

bacteria. The findings echo the results of an FDA analysis that recently concluded there isn’t enough science to show that antibacterial soaps are better at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water. “Following simple handwashing practices is one of the most eff ective ways to prevent the spread of many types of infection,” says Dr. Theresa M. Michele, of the FDA’s Division of Nonprescription Drug Products.


SCORPION’S STING TO TREAT ARTHRITIS? Scorpion venom contains a compound that may combat rheumatoid arthritis, which


strikes nearly 1.3 million Americans. That’s the upshot of new research out of Baylor College of Medicine. Using animal models, scientists found it could reduce the severity of the disease with no side eff ects. Lead researcher Christine


Beeton, associate professor of molecular physiology and biophysics, said her team found a component of scorpion venom called iberiotoxin that blocks the action of cells that play a major role in arthritis. “We think that this venom component, iberiotoxin, can become the basis for developing a new treatment for rheumatoid arthritis,” Beeton said.
