Monday, April 24, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!

You're probably not going to be surprised, but we are talking basic science and medicine today. Not the "translational" stuff, but the real, nitty gritty stuff that confuse even most physicians find difficult to understand.

The first thing brings together a modern evil with the stuff of the middle ages.  Dr. Victor J. Torres, Ph.D., of NYU, will be joining us to talk about the links between medieval medicines and Staph aureus, a problem in everything from gym bags to ICU's.  Turns out that our medieval ancestors knew more than we give them credit for.  Find out what, and how!

After that, we will have Gastroenterology Update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS! Or via Twitter, of course.

Continuing with our basic science theme, we are going to be talking HIV. Dr. Jenna Honeycutt, a PhD post-doc at the University of North Carolina, will be coming on to talk about how the HIV gene persists in a part of the body despite treatment (something similar happened with Ebola, if I remember correctly).  Find out how one discovery will (hopefully) lead to others and, potentially, a cure for HIV.

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira,where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me!  Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
