“Nudging” Doctors to Prescribe Cholesterol-Lowering Statins Triples Prescription Rates

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Pairing an online patient dashboard with “nudges” to doctors tripled statin prescribing rates in a clinical trial led by Penn Medicine researchers. The study used two nudges, active choice framing to prompt physicians to make a decision on prescriptions, and peer comparison feedback which provided physicians with information on their performance relative to other physicians.

Fat Production and Burning are Synchronized in Livers of Mice with Obesity

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Mice fed a fattening diet develop new liver circadian rhythms that impact the way fat is accumulated and simultaneously burned. The team found that as liver fat production increases, surprisingly, so does the body’s ability to burn fat. These opposing physiological processes reach their peak activity each day around 5 p.m., illustrating an unexpected connection between overeating, circadian rhythms, and fat accumulation in the liver.
