OU Physicians Names Ozer Hematology/oncology Chair


Carter, Ray, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Howard Ozer has been named hematology/oncology chairman for OU Physicians and is currently seeing patients in the Cade Cancer Center in the OU Physicians Building, 825 NE 10th St.

Ozer was director of the Winship Cancer Center at Emory University and the Cancer Center at MCP Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. While there, he was the first to treat a patient with thrombopoietin -- the protein that controls growth and function of blood platelets -- and demonstrate that it dramatically accelerated platelet recovery after chemotherapy. He is currently providing treatments to people experiencing lymphoma and a type of leukemia called myelodysplastic syndrome. In addition, Ozer continues work begun earlier in his career in innovative treatments for non- Hodgkin's lymphoma and chronic leukemias, as well as other biological agents for the treatment of malignant disease.

Ozer is a graduate of the Yale Medical School program in immunology.

While serving as associate director of the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Medical Oncology Division Chief at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ozer pioneered a major advance in the control of fever and infection for patients receiving chemotherapy for small cell lung cancer.

Before moving to Edmond, Prabhu had a private practice in Lawton for more than seven years. His new office is at Northside Digestive Diseases, 105 S. Bryant Ave., Ste. 200 in Edmond.

Bone & Joint Hospital

Bone & Joint Hospital received two 5-star ratings from HealthGrades Inc. for orthopedic surgery excellence in total hip and total knee replacements.

"The ratings confirm what we have known about our hospital for a long time; that the quality of care patients receive at our hospital is some of the best nationwide," said Jim Hyde, CEO and president at Bone & Joint Hospital.

American Heart Association

The American Heart Association has declared Feb.23 as "Heart Trains Heroes" in Oklahoma City. As part of that day, the association hopes to teach CPR for free to at least 400 area residents at OSU-OKC Student Center, 900 N. Portland Ave.

The event is open to people 8 years and older. To register, call 942-2444.

Two training sessions are scheduled at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each session lasts two hours. Instructors will use the American Heart Association's CPR/basic life-support course called "CPR for Family and Friends." The course is not for professional certification.

For information on area training sites, call 942-2444.

Alliance for the Mentally Ill

The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill praised Gov. Frank Keating for exempting the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse from major reductions in his budget.

Keating's budget calls for spending $160 million from the state's "rainy day" fund to make up about 60 percent of a projected revenue shortfall of about $262 million, resulting in an actual budget reduction of about $100 million, to be made up by 6 percent cut at roughly one-third of government agencies.
