(EpiPens-Expiry)

A new study finds that EpiPens are still mostly potent long after their expiration date -- even by as long as four years.

Researchers tested long-expired EpiPens designed for adults and children to determine how much epinephrine they still contained, and found two-thirds of the expired adult EpiPens still had at least 90 per cent of the stated dose.

About 50 per cent of the EpiPen Juniors had the same amount, which the U-S Food and Drug Administration says is still acceptable for any medication coming out of the factory.

However, doctors caution that epinephrine can degrade when it is improperly stored, and remind patients not to rely on an expired EpiPen.

The study is published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. (ABC)

Katie Ray-Jones says the surge in such calls became noticeable in mid-2016 when Donald Trump was clinching the Republican presidential nomination amid calls for tough enforcement of immigration laws. (The Associated Press)

(Marijuana-Mice)

A new study suggests T-H-C -- the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis -- can improve learning and memory skills in older mice, but cause the opposite effect in younger rodents.

Researchers treated young, mature and older mice with low-dose T-H-C, and found the mature and older mice had improved memory skills and neuronal changes that made their brain cells more similar to younger animals.

But the study found the mice in the younger group performed worse on all tasks, and the same brain cells started looking like those seen in aging mice. …
