We have a show that is historical and timely planned for this Monday. Our first hour is timely: new discoveries for a rare disease and new discoveries in digestive diseases. Our second hour is historical as we try to unravel some medical mysteries.
Hereditary angioedema. This rare genetic disease has historically had a fatality rate approaching 30%. People with the disease can literally choke themselves to death. And traditional therapies for throat swelling, such as antihistamines, just won't work. Join me and Dr. Donald McNeil, an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Ohio State University and in private practice at Midwest Allergy Associates, as we discuss this interesting medical problem. We will also be joined by a person who is suffering from the disease. Dr. McNeil is also the founder of Optimed Research.
