From Cleveland, according to research in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, binge drinking is most common among white males with higher incomes. In a study of over 62,000 adults from 14 states, researchers found that binge drinking was three times more common among men than women and was most common among white males with an annual household income of at least $50,000. From Houston, according to research in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, annual screening for early-stage ovarian cancer has not been effective. In a study of over 34,000 women, researchers found that more than 70% of cancers detected with ultrasound and biomarker testing had already progressed to advanced stages. Further research should determine the impact of screening on ovarian cancer mortality. And finally from Orlando, according to research presented to the American College of Cardiology, stem cell treatment could help repair heart attack damage. In a study of 31 heart attack patients, researchers found that those who received the highest doses of autologous bone marrow progenitor cells had improved blood flow to the area around the damaged tissue. A phase II study is expected to begin later this year. For Insidermedicine In 60, I'm Allison Chow from Queen's University. [Music Playing]
