Text Messaging Program to Improve Lifestyle Factors Among Heart Attack Survivors + FDA Places Stricter Restrictions on Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine – Xtalks Life Science Podcast Ep. 61

Text Messaging Program to Improve Lifestyle Factors Among Heart Attack Survivors + FDA Places Stricter Restrictions on Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine – Xtalks Life Science Podcast Ep. 61

In this episode, Ayesha discussed a new study that evaluated a text messaging program designed to improve medication adherence and lifestyle factors among heart attack survivors. While the program did not lead to improvements in medication adherence, it did have a positive impact on lifestyle factors like diet. Hear more about the study and the importance of managing heart attack risk factors like hypertension and diabetes. This is especially relevant on World Hypertension Day (May 17) and May Measurement Month, which bring awareness to the importance of accurately measuring blood pressure.

Ayesha also talked about the FDA’s decision to place stricter restrictions on the use of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine given continuing concerns of the rare but serious side effect of blood clots. Hear about why the FDA revised the vaccine’s authorization, and why the FDA maintains that the vaccine’s benefits outweigh any known or potential risks.
