Lightning round version for match week…

NEJM 3/16 –
Paroxetine therapy for 2 years cuts the risk of depression recurrence in half in patients over 70 with Major Depressive disorder. But psychotherapy does not. [Article]

Papanikolaou shows that culturing embryos longer to the blastocyst stage allows for greater success of single-embryo in vitro fertilization. [Article] Hopefully this will reduce multiple embryo transfers and the high risk of mutiple gestations with IVF. And I just like to say “Papankolaou”.

The upcoming New England should be huge- stay tuned for:
Plavix + Aspirin is no better than Aspirin alone.

Evidence to treat pre-hypertension with ARBs.

and more evidence that Vitamins are bad for you.
