ProfNet has added the following to items posted previously at http://www.profnet.com/organik/orbital/thewire/lst_leads.jsp?iLRTopicID=1752

1. JAMES HUBBARD, M.D., M.P.H., family physician and publisher of Family Doctor: The Magazine That Makes Housecalls: "The general public should not panic regarding the shortage of this year's flu vaccinations. There should be plenty to go around for those who need it, such as the elderly, very young and chronically ill. Other healthy people are only at a small risk for major complications. If they get the flu, at worst, they will have a week or so of symptoms." Hubbard can provide practical advice on what to do if you get the flu. News Contact: Leigh Ann Hubbard, managingeditor@familydoctormag.com Phone: +1-719-964-7464 (10/28/04)

2. JIM MANN, executive director of the HANDWASHING FOR LIFE INSTITUTE, is an expert source on the topic of warding off the flu virus due to the flu vaccine shortage. News Contact: Ron Bottrell, ron.bottrell@hillandknowlton.com Phone: +1-312-475 5905 (10/28/04)

ROUND-UP: UNIVERSAL HEALTH INSURANCE (continued)

ProfNet added the following to items posted previously at http://www.profnet.com/organik/orbital/thewire/lst_leads.jsp?iLRTopicID=1004

1. SALLY PIPES, author of the new book "Miracle Cure: How to Solve America's Health Care Crisis and Why Canada Isn't the Answer": "We have to put the individual back in the driver's seat. Programs like Health Savings Accounts, moving away from employer-provided health insurance and Association Health Plans would dramatically lower the number of uninsured. What's more, every American could be insured tomorrow if the money devoted to regulating health insurance was spent instead on health insurance."

LEADS

1. FITNESS: IS THE 10,000-STEP WALKING REGIMEN FOR EVERYONE? LEONARD KAMINSKY, professor of physical education and coordinator of adult physical fitness and cardio/pulmonary programs at BALL STATE UNIVERSITY: "While the U.S. Surgeon General is recommending the average person walk 10,000 steps a day to improve health, the program has come under fire for being less effective than other types of more strenuous exercise in improving fitness levels. The 10,000-step program is primarily targeted to sedentary or irregularly active people to promote health. The hope is that people will start slowly by walking and then actually transition to a more strenuous exercise program." News Contact: Layne Cameron, lscameron@bsu.edu Phone: +1- 765-285-5953 (10/28/04)

2. FITNESS: GIVING THE GIFT OF FITNESS FOR THE HOLIDAYS. KEVIN GRODZKI, president of LIFE FITNESS, a manufacturer of cardiovascular and strength- training equipment, can provide many home fitness equipment gift ideas: "Obesity is an epidemic that, unfortunately, is an extremely serious, very prevalent issue in today's society. So this holiday season, give the gift of good health and fitness to your loved ones. In 2003, Americans spent $5.5 billion (retail) on home exercise equipment. Sales continue to rise, with a projected increase to $5.8 billion in 2005." News Contact: Tracey Budz, tracey.budz@lifefitness.com Phone: +1-847-288-3456 (10/28/04)

3. HEALTH: SLEEP DISORDERS OFTEN MISDIAGNOSED AS ADD. DR. MERRILL WISE, physician with TEXAS CHILDREN HOSPITAL's Sleep Disorder Clinic: "Children who suffer from poor school performance, memory lapses and behavioral problems may have a relatively common and treatable sleep disorder. Sleep disorders may be undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, such as attention deficit disorder. Children may act out in ways that resemble hyperactivity when they just aren't getting enough sleep." News Contact: Laura Frnka, lafrnka@texaschildrenshospital.org Phone: +1-832-824-2645 (10/28/04)

4. HEALTH: PLASTIC SURGERY NOW MORE APPEALING. ROBERT R. HUMMEL, M.D. of THE PLASTIC SURGERY GROUP: "Once considered a secret among Hollywood celebrities, has exploded into the mainstream. Women and men from their 20s to upper 60s are taking advantage of the newest techniques to improve their skin or freshen their look. Plastic surgery has changed. People who wouldn't have considered a procedure 10 years ago are now seeking our services, and it falls across several generations." News Contact: Susan McDonald, smcdonald@jypublicrelations.com Phone: +1-513-388-4706 (10/28/04)

5. HEALTH: ONE'S HEALTH IS DIRECTLY IMPACTED BY THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. DR. BARBARA LEVINE, Ph.D., R.D., director of the Nutrition Information Center at CORNELL UNIVERSITY, can talk about the everyday factors that affect immune health, including yo-yo dieting, sun exposure, stress and even laughter: "Medical experts agree that our health is directly impacted by the immune system. It is the body's own protection mechanism that works hard to keep vital organs shielded from outside forces. It's astonishing that so few people are familiar with the everyday factors that can positively or negatively affect the immune system. It is so important to introduce this information to consumers and get them directly engaged in ways to maintain the body's natural defenses. People can do simple things everyday to support their immune health, including supplementing their diet." News Contact: Jennifer Humphrey, jhumphrey@hillandknowlton.com Phone: +1-323-966-5767 (10/28/04)

6. MEDICINE: PATIENTS ARE NEEDED FOR CLINICAL CANCER TRIALS. DR. GARY COHEN, administrative director of THE SIDNEY KIMMEL FOUNDATION FOR CANCER RESEARCH: "A shortage of adult patients is holding up clinical cancer trials. Patients often believe they'll receive a placebo, which is usually not the case. Family doctors are sometimes reluctant to refer a patient to a clinical trial for fear of losing that patient to an academic center. In some states, HMOs have curtailed insurance benefits for patients on clinical trials.

Patients believe that participation may require travel. Many trials can now be initiated by community-based physicians throughout the U.S. If some of these issues aren't addressed, few of the new breakthrough medications will be properly tested and developed."
