Q: Lately, I have noticed a pain in the calves of both legs after walking about a half-mile. After a short rest, the pain disappears and I can again walk for another half-mile before the pain occurs again. What could be causing this pain?A: You have described the typical symptoms of intermittent claudication, characterized by pain in the muscles of the leg, especially the calf muscles, and caused by peripheral vascular disease (PVD). PVD in turn is caused by atherosclerotic narrowing of the large arteries supplying blood to arms and legs.

An aortic aneurysm can burst and kill within minutes, but a simple test – an ultrasound like the kind that detects a baby's heart beat – can spot a bulge in the aortic wall and surgery can repair it. Blockages in the carotid arteries that run up both sides of the neck and into the brain can cause a major stroke. Yet that same ultrasound wand can spot a blockage and that, too, can be remedied. Dare to CARE is a program started by Annapolis vascular surgeon Dr. John Martin, and he has screened – for free – more than 30,000 people since 2000, half of whom were found to have some vascular disease.

Shares of United Therapeutics Corp. fell nearly 39 percent yesterday afternoon after the company announced that it expects to cease development of its drug Beraprost for peripheral vascular disease after it failed to significantly help patients taking it in a clinical trial. Shares lost $6.32, to close at $10.04 on the Nasdaq stock market. More than 2.8 million shares traded, nearly 11 times the average daily volume in the last six months. The Silver Spring company said the late-stage test, which involved 750 patients at 60 sites across the United States, failed to replicate the positive results of a similar trial in Europe.

ROCKVILLE - Otis Brawley tells the story with no rancor, no anger, but with more than a bit of sadness. It is a story of his mother. Brawley heads the federal Office of Special Populations Research for the National Cancer Institute here, essentially in charge of finding out why there is a gap in cancer care for minorities and other groups and how to change that. It is a warm spring day when he tells the story. But when it is over, there is a chill in the air. His mother has diabetes; she has had it for a long time.
