Mike shares from The Emperor of All Maladies on the development and progression of Lung Cancer, and talks with Joyce about Radiation exposure from Diagnostic Imaging.
Be sure to read THE EMPEROR OF ALL MALADIES, a kind of "biography" of cancer, by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee. See the New York Times book review for this important book, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/14/books/review/Weiner-t.html
In the conversation they refer to a previous interview with Dr. Madan Rehani, Chief of the Division of Radiation Protection for the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. Click here for the interview.
Joyce speaks from the Toronto airport, on her way to Varna, Bulgaria, to participate in the International Conference on Radiation Protection in Medicine, sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency based in Vienna. She will share more about this conference and about the survey she presented there in the coming weeks.
In the hour, we explore the post diagnostic implications of whole exome sequencing as it pertains to clinical practice with some eye opening data from our two speakers Julie Cohen and Dr. Alejandro Iglesias. Julie is a Genetic Counselor at Kennedy Kreiger Institute in Baltimore Maryland, and Dr. Alejandro Iglesias has been a pediatrician and geneticist for the last 25 years.

Bipolar Disorder is one of the top ten causes of medical disability and mortality in the World. Developing more effective and more rapidly acting treatments, especially for the depression phase which is the most debilitating, depends on a better understanding of the causes of bipolar disorders. This blog radio talk by two of Columbia University’s experts on bipolar disorder will describe the latest results from brain imaging studies and regulation of the body’s inflammatory defenses. It will explain how these findings can lead to new treatment approaches and diagnostic tools.
For more information on treatment for bipolar disorder, and to learn about research opportunities, please visit our division’s website at www.columbiapsychiatry.org/mind or call us at 646-774-7560.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. With the May 2013 publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, all autism disorders were merged into one umbrella diagnosis of ASD. Previously, they were recognized as distinct subtypes, including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome.
ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.
Autism appears to have its roots in very early brain development. However, the most obvious signs of autism and symptoms of autism tend to emerge between 2 and 3 years of age. Autism Speaks continues to fund research on effective methods for earlier diagnosis, as early intervention with proven behavioral therapies can improve outcomes. Increasing autism awareness is a key aspect of this work and one in which our families and volunteers play an invaluable role.
Please Welcome our special guests who have taken the time out to tell their stories.

Every year, there are more than 30,000 suicides and ten times as many suicide attempts in the United States. Better prevention is urgently required. That requires improving our knowledge of the causes of suicidal behavior. We know psychiatric disorders, most commonly major depression, are associated with suicide. But most people with a psychiatric disorder never attempt suicide. The group at higher risk of suicide have a predisposition to suicidal behavior. Learning about how genes and childhood experiences affect how we deal with stress, depression and make decisions, and how those functions are in turn related to brain functioning are key to understanding why people die by suicide. The Conte Center for Translational Neuroscience at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, has been at the forefront of this research.
Differences in brain circuitry in suicide attempters are linked to the predisposition to suicidal behavior and are the result of a combination of genes and childhood adversity. Evaluating brain circuitry of family members of those who have suicided or made serious nonlethal suicide attempts may identify a higher risk group. The Conte Center for Suicide Prevention uses two brain imaging modalities, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with several biobehavioral measures to study risk and resilience factors for suicide in patients with major depression.
In this radio program, we will describe how we seek to prevent suicide by studying the brain biology and abnormalities in stress coping and mood regulation that increase risk of suicidal behavior, and then seeking ways to reverse these effects.

Wondering how sugar affects human pH? Wondering why you should care? Dr. Canion talks to Shirley about how this works and why it’s important. In dentistry we know the teeth can withstand a critical pH of 5.5 before the teeth start to show effects. The body has a similar pH critical level. A healthy body is not acidic. Acidosis is one of the diagnostic tools that “alternative” medicine doctors use to make a diagnosis of disease and start treatments right away.
