  5. WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS) — The FDA has declared a shortage of EpiPens. The agency says the products are currently available but manufacturing delays are causing a short-term shortage across the country. The Food Allergy Research & Education advocacy group has called on the FDA and the Trump administration to take action. According to a FARE survey, more than 400 people in 45 states reported difficulties obtaining an EpiPen. “I called around and found an Epipen Jr at Walgreens in Massachusetts but it expires in less than six months. Frustrating for such an expensive drug,” one survey respondent said. EpiPens are used to treat severe allergic reactions. Mylan, the company that makes them, says people can call 800-796-9526 if they can’t find EpiPens and they will help patients...

  10. EL PASO, TX (CBS Local) – An Army soldier who lost her ear received a revolutionary transplant in which doctors grew her a brand new ear on the patient’s own arm. Plastic surgeons at William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC) in El Paso successfully transplanted the ear onto Shamika Burrage after the Army Private lost her left ear in a one-car accident while on leave in 2016. Instead of finding a donor, surgeons took cartilage from Burrage’s ribs and carved it into the shape of an ear. The “ear” was then placed under the skin in the 21-year-old’s forearm so it could grow into a fully formed ear.

  14. QUINCY (CBS) – On Thursday it was confirmed that a child at a daycare and preschool in North Quincy had been diagnosed with typhoid fever, a disease rarely found in the United States. For many, the name brings to mind “Typhoid Mary,” but what exactly is typhoid fever? Here’s what WBZ-TV’s Dr. Mallika Marshall has to say: Typhoid fever, also known as enteric fever, is an infection caused by a type of salmonella bacteria. The infection causes chills, fever and belly pain, Dr. Marshall says. People with typhoid fever can also develop pink spots on their skin. (WBZ graphic) It can be contracted like any other intestinal infection, such as norovirus, by consuming contaminated food or water. Symptoms can develop between five and 20 days after becoming infected. It can be spread when so...
  15. BOSTON (CBS) – You’ve probably heard of second-hand smoke but what about third-hand smoke? A new study finds that residual chemicals from tobacco smoke can persist on indoor surfaces like furniture, carpets, and clothing even if no one has smoked there for many years. Researchers at Drexel university in Philadelphia analyzed the air in a non-smoking, unoccupied classroom over the course of a month. They themselves were surprised when they found a significant amount of chemical residue associated with tobacco smoke. The concern is that these potentially harmful chemicals could be absorbed through the skin, ingested or inhaled and can move through buildings easily through the HVAC system. Studies done on mice have shown these particles could have health effects but more research...
