Your first clue is right there in the waiting room of Dr. Stephen A. Valenti's cardiology practice, HPV Heart, P.A. in Columbia. There, among the typical waiting-room magazines serving up the standard news, diet and fitness fare, is the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Valenti, 55, is a committed physician who acknowledges that he does not get to listen to music in the car because he is usually playing "medical CDs" so he can "keep up on stuff" in the field of cardiology. But his passion for music will be expressed tonight alongside 12 of his regular band members and three guests when his band, Stevie V. & The Heart Attackers, performs at the Bicentennial Gala for the University of Maryland School of Medicine at the Baltimore Convention Center.

While researchers emphasize that the results might not apply in humans, some scientists say they raise the possibility that during a vulnerable window in pregnancy and infancy, these drugs could alter developing human brains, too. Known as COX-2 inhibitors, this class of anti-inflammatories includes aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen and indomethacin.
