The IPL device produces hundreds of wavelengths of light, which travel through dermis, which is used to focus the light on the area to be treated.
The light targets the pigment in hairs, heating up the follicle and damaging the cells that cause hair growth. The hair is then prevented from growing any further.
It is an alternative to the traditional hair removal methods of shaving.
Recently Presented Long-Term Progression-Free Survival Data in Multiple Myeloma
(BPT) – Sponsored content by Bristol-Myers Squibb
Multiple myeloma is one of the most common types of blood cancer, with more than 30,000 Americans expected to be diagnosed this year.1 Formed by malignant plasma cells that are typically located within bone marrow, multiple myeloma often causes no symptoms until an advanced stage.2 Despite advances in treatment over the last decade, less than half of patients survive longer than five years after diagnosis.1
There have been numerous advancements in multiple myeloma research and treatment options that have improved the overall prognosis of the disease. Some of these advancements involve exploring potential ways to work directly with patients’ immune systems to fight multiple myeloma, an area of research known as Immuno-Oncology (I-O).3,4
Recently, research looking at follow-up data for relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma I-O treatment, Empliciti™ (elotuzumab), was presented at the 22nd Congress of the European Hematology Association. Empliciti is a prescription medicine used to treat multiple myeloma in combination with the medicines lenalidomide and dexamethasone in people who have received one to three prior treatments for their multiple myeloma.5 It is not known if Empliciti is safe and effective in children.
Empliciti in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone may cause the following serious side effects: infusion reactions, infections, risk of developing new cancers (malignancies) and liver problems. There are also other serious risks associated with lenalidomide to females and males of reproductive potential, including possible serious birth defects or death of an unborn baby, and specific requirements regarding birth control, pregnancy testing and blood and/or sperm donation.5 For more information, please read Important Safety Information below. Patients’ healthcare team will work with them to manage any side effects they may experience throughout treatment with Empliciti.
In the clinical trial of 646 multiple myeloma patients who had received one to three prior treatments (in which 321 received Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone, and 325 received lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone), more people in the Empliciti treatment arm were living with their disease under control after four years of follow-up. Empliciti, in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in patients who had received one to three prior therapies, is the only therapy that demonstrated a long-term benefit in progression-free survival that was maintained through four years versus lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone.6
After at least two years of follow-up, people who received Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone were at 30% less risk of their disease progressing or passing away from any cause, compared with people taking lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone. After at least four years of follow-up, results were similar.At the four-year follow-up, there was a 21% chance that people taking Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone were still living with their disease under control, compared with a 14% chance for people taking lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone.
The study was designed to look at progression-free survival at two years. Progression-free survival is the length of time during and after treatment of a disease that a patient lives with the disease, but it does not get worse.
The study was also designed to look at the overall response rate. Overall response rate is the percentage of patients who responded to treatment-for example, patients whose level of M protein was lowered by a certain amount. Overall response rates include complete response, very good partial response and partial response.
The main analysis for progression-free survival took place at two years. Patients still benefiting from treatment continued in the study, and a follow-up analysis was done at four years. Both evaluations were based on the entire population of 646 patients.
At two years, there was a 41% chance that people taking Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone were living with their disease under control, compared with a 27% chance for people taking lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone.
Also in this study, about four out of five people (78.5%) responded to treatment with Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone, compared to about two out of three people (65.5%) taking lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone.
The most common side effects of Empliciti in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone and lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone, respectively, were fatigue (61.6%, 51.7%); diarrhea (46.9%, 36.0%); fever (37.4%, 24.6%); constipation (35.5%, 27.1%); cough (34.3%, 18.9%); numbness, weakness, tingling, or burning pain in your arms or legs (26.7%, 20.8%); sore throat or runny nose (24.5%, 19.2%); upper respiratory tract infection (22.6%, 17.4%); decreased appetite (20.8%, 12.6%); and pneumonia (20.1%, 14.2%). These side effect rates were determined after the typical patient had received about 19 cycles of Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone or 14 cycles of lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone. These side effects were experienced by at least 20% of patients receiving Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone and at a 5% or greater rate than patients who took lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone.
The percentage of patients who stopped treatment due to side effects was similar for both treatment groups (6.0% for patients who received Empliciti with lenalidomide and dexamethasone and 6.3% for patients who received lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone).6
Researchers across the globe are continuing research into activating the body’s immune system to fight cancers, both hematologic and solid tumors, with the goal of providing more effective treatment options. The results of this follow-up analysis are an important step toward progress in supporting relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma patients.6
Empliciti is available by prescription only in 300 mg and 400 mg vials for injection for intravenous use. Empliciti may not work for all patients, and individual results may vary.

Hollywood and Bollywood stars have been long propagating “Detox Diets” in their routine and have been reporting wonderful effects from them. Today, it is the people around us who are talking about these diets. The internet has been flooded with articles on how “Detox Diets” work from weight loss to flushing out the body toxins to improving your energy levels. But wait? Is this just another one of the fad diets or it is a diet that actually does what it claims to do.
So, let’s start with what “Detox Diets” claim to do. They claim to flush out the “toxins” of your system. These diets take various forms. They involve consuming certain foods, special juices, consuming detox teas and other liquids and many propagate just fasting. Colon cleansing is also a part of “Detox Diets” to empty the intestines. Toxins according to the Merriam-Webster definition states:
“A toxin is a poisonous substance that is a specific product of the metabolic activities of a living organism and is usually very unstable, notably toxic when introduced into the tissues, and typically capable of inducing antibody formation.”
This means a toxin is a harmful substance and the body needs to eliminate to avoid harm to our bodies. If the toxins build up instead of being excreted you would be needing medical intervention urgently. But, in most of the cases – especially in healthy individuals there is no build up of toxins as our body has a built – in detox system. The kidneys, liver, skin and even the lungs are working overtime to eliminate them from our bodies.
So, how do people feel good as they claim after a “Detox Diet”? Detox diets promote natural foods – no processed and packaged foods high in saturated fats, sugars and salt. It also advocates the intake of fresh juices (vegetable and fruit). One ends up drinking more water and less or no caffeine or alcohol. These changes are generally good for the body and thus help in feeling better. And also since one has eliminated the intake of high calorie foods there is bound to be weight loss in an individual doing this diet. But, again this weight loss is temporary. This weight loss is mostly water loss and stored glycogen loss and it will be regained once one starts eating normally. So, it’s only the huffing and puffing along with clean eating habits that is going to be long term in terms of weight loss.
OUR VIEW: Dramatically limiting food intake through fasting or eliminating food groups can put the body under a lot of stress. Such diets result in nutrient deficiencies and give rise to many health problems. For example when macronutrients like carbohydrates, proteins and fats are missing one may feel dizzy, light headed or nauseated. Blood sugar levels may drop and body is fatigued. These diets may also trigger unhealthy eating behavior in young adults which can impact their long term health and well-being.
So, there is no scientific evidence to support the body’s need for detox through diet as the body is designed to detox, repair and regenerate on its own. Organs like liver, kidney, lungs, digestive system as well as the enzymes in the cells work towards eliminating the toxins from the body. By cutting back on key nutrients you may hamper the body’s natural process and harm the body instead. If one is looking to lose weight then detox is not the solution. Weight loss centers in Mumbai like Café Nutrition which offer weight loss programs can help you chalk out a balanced plan with all the necessary nutrients to help you lose the extra weight. For weight loss that is lasting, exercise and good food are the only healthy options.

Women ages 30 and older are growing increasingly aware of new wrinkles with each passing year. Yet, evidence suggests that sun spots may have as much of an impact on age-related appearance as wrinkles.
Nearly 63 percent of women older than age 35 experience sun or age spots, discolorations and uneven skin. The dark side? The problem reflects your apparent age — or lack of youth.
“Getting a clear, even skin tone without discoloration is just as important as wrinkle-fighting to achieving a rejuvenated, youthful appearance,” says Dr. Ellen Marmur, prominent New York City dermatologist and author of “Simple Skin Beauty.” “To some patients, it’s even more important.”
Dermatologists like Marmur call it hyperpigmentation, but its various types are commonly known as age spots, sun spots, liver spots, freckles and melasma, brown patches of skin triggered by a hormone imbalance. Age spots, sun spots and liver spots are all the same ailment — pouches of melanin where the skin pigment has overproduced and dumped uneven amounts, the majority of which are a result of sun damage.
