SGLT2 INHIBITORS IMPROVE HEART FAILURE OUTCOMES - Empagliflozin (Jardiance®) and dapagliflozin (Farxiga®) have now both been found to significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization for heart failure in large trials. The most likely mechanism behind this benefit is the diuretic effect of SGLT2 inhibitors.

CANNABIS HAS ITS DAY IN EPILEPSY
The use of cannabis for seizure control has received much media attention. Up until now, there have been no good randomized, placebo-controlled trials to evaluate the effects of cannabis on seizure control. A recent study published in the NEJM compared the cannabis-derived compound cannabidiol (CBD) to placebo in children with drug-resistant Dravet syndrome.

FDA CLEARS MOBILE EKG SMARTPHONE DEVICE -

The FDA cleared two mobile devices that record a patient's EKG. One device (KardiaMobile) works with a smartphone and the other device (KardiaBand) works with an Apple watch. In both cases, the patient places their fingertips on a special pad, and the EKG appears on the device. The device is promoted as being able to capture atrial fibrillation in susceptible patients.

FINALLY, AN AFFORDABLE ASTHMA MAINTENANCE INHALER!

Teva pharmaceuticals launched two new asthma inhalers, AirDuo and ArmonAir. AirDuo is similar to Advair, and ArmonAir is similar to Flovent. In an unprecedented move, Teva simultaneously launched a generic version of AirDuo along with the branded version. The generic version of AirDuo is selling for $40 - $80/inhaler according to GoodRX.com. This is considerably less than its competitors which generally cost more than $300 an inhaler. Teva has not yet launched a generic version of ArmonAir.
