"Whole slide images are graphs": Our paper on effectiveness of graph modelling of WSIs in #cpath & Graph Neural Networks (#GNN) for receptor status prediction of #breastcancer from routine WSIs is accepted in Medical Image Analysis.
1. Motivation: Whole slide images are big and holistic modelling of interactions between different tissue components using only slide level labels is difficult with conventional "patch-then-aggregate" approaches used for weakly supervised learning in CPath.
2. We introduce a flexible #GNN based #ML framework (#SlideGraph+) that can holistically model WSIs for different large scale prediction problems
3. For HER2 status prediction, the method gives AUC 0.75-0.8 and can be used for case triaging & advanced ordering of tests.

Please take a break from your #doomscrolling and read this thread. If you have an even longer break read the paper @NEJM:… 1/7
This paper is about #PartD & cancer. It is also about #pharmacoequity (shoutout @UREssien). Not the way we typically think about equity, though. This is about how screwed you are if you need cancer treatment and your treatment happens to be covered by #PartD and not #PartB. 2/7
Half of cancer drugs are covered by #PartD. Whether you get a pill versus infusion is based on your cancer type or subtype. For #breastcancer the preferred regimens for #HER2+ cancer are infused (#PartB); for HER2-, ER/PR+ cancer preferred regimens include a #PartD drug. 3/7

Great article by @toyoufromlee on @KoningCorp #breastcancer as many of you know im super excited about this revolutionary company and how its a game changer for breast cancer…
detection with no compression and 3D accuracy. Lee Fan makes a compelling case for why its so revolutionary plus why their move into SAAS (screening as a service) will transform the industry and could catapult Koning as a market leader (existing cos like @Hologic have inferior

"Histology of mRNA vaxxinee lymph nodes shows abundant germinal centers

Vaccine spike antigen and mRNA persist for weeks in lymph node germinal centers."…
One very real hypothesis is that the substitution of pseudouridine for uridine to avoid the
@looking5452 immune response is working so well that the mRNA is completely evading the normal clearance/degradation pathways. Hence, mRNA that is not being incorporated into cells at the injection site, is migrating to the lymph nodes (and throughout the body as the non-clinical>
@looking5452 Pfizer data suggest?) and CONTINUING TO EXPRESS PROTEIN there. In this case, the cytotoxic protein antigen is SPIKE. SPIKE PROTEIN CAN BE DETECTED FOR AT LEAST 60 DAYS AFTER ADMINISTRATION OF DOSE. Note that the duration of the protein expression was ONLY TESTED FOR 60 days.>

Women considering hormone replacement therapy (#HRT) can be reassured about the risk of #BreastCancer. New research suggests that HRT is generally linked to only small increased risks. Different types of HRT were linked to different risks of breast cancer.
The researchers looked at data from 99,000 women with #BreastCancer aged between 50 and 79. Each was matched to five other women who did not have breast cancer. This was so researchers could look at the association between taking HRT and having a diagnosis of breast cancer.
The research team found that there was no increase in the risk of breast cancer for HRT taken for less than a year. Risks increased with the duration of HRT treatment and there were also different risks depending on a woman’s age and the type of progestogen taken.

I’m fed up of the media blaming GPs for the spike in late-stage #breastcancer. From my experience GPs refer anyone with a breast symptom to a clinic, no matter the age. They know, as I do, that the only way to exclude a cancer is to be examined and have …
… either an USS, mammogram or both. And even then, a cancer might be missed. Cancers can be sneaky. One month they might be too small to be felt or seen on a scan. Then 4 weeks later, there they are. I should know. I’m a breast surgeon. I have ‘expert hands’. I just thought…
… I had a cyst. Turned out it was a 6cm cancer sitting on top of a 13cm cancer. Yes you will hear about the rare cases when a GP didn’t send a young girl up. But remember - #breastcancer is RARE in women under the age of 40. Less than 4% of all cases. Most young women have …

Promising research into metastatic #breastcancer from the UK in @Nature

The FDA-approved antibiotic Bedaquiline (for multi-drug resistant tuberculosis) “downregulated ATP5F1C expression in vitro and prevented spontaneous metastasis in vivo”…
Bedaquiline prevented “spontaneous metastasis in a xenograft model, without affecting tumor growth, or inducing significant toxicity… consistent with the idea that ATP is a functional biomarker of metastasis.”
Small study: 12 female patients with a diagnosis of invasive breast carcinoma. Samples of lymph node metastasis (5) or distant metastasis alone (6). One sample included the primary tumor; axillary lymph nodal metastasis; plus skin and the liver metastases.

Returning from a trip to attend memorial services for a dear vegetarian friend who died of Cancer.

Almost everyone I saw has Cancer, too.

And they all say:

“Why am I sick? I eat such a healthy diet, mostly fruit, vegetables and plant based!”
When I suggest it might be a chronic lack of protein, B-12, carnitine, carnosine, minerals, collagen, saturated fats and iron...and too much sugar and oxalates they are in complete denial. #vegan #cancer #breastcancer Image
I ate a lot of hummus, nut butter, tahini, rice, vegetables and fruit. (To be polite.)

I secretly cooked steaks on a small stove I travel with.

I gotta vent! Chemo is scary af! I have to flush the toilet twice and preferably use a separate bathroom to keep the Chemo from other people. I can't have sex for 72 hours after infusion because my vagina can leak Chemo after infusion. Terrifying!
All of my clothes that I wore to my infusion and 72 hours after infusion I have to be washed separately from other people laundry. I can't share towels or anything for that matter. If my hubs comes in contact with my body fluids during this time he has to wash and flush...
the area that may have been contaminated. Signs he's been effected are a rash or worse. I'm toxic during that time for three days out of the week. It's scary. It's working as far as we can tell but it's scary!

Is it possible to predict signaling in single cell? 🤔
Our @attila_gbr with Marco Tognetti, @BodenmillerLab group, @tanevski, and @Sagebio designed a @DR_E_A_M challenge to crowdsource this question and our manuscript is out 🎊…. Here is what we learnt🧑‍🎓
we used this… rich dataset from the @BodenmillerLab and @Picotti_Lab labs: 80 millions of #singlecell from 67 #breastcancer cell lines, 36 measured markers, 5 kinase inhibitors, time courses #CyTOF + #proteomics , transcriptomics and genomics
Did the antibody stop working or you cannot measure a node? We can predict it’s activity from other measured nodes. Predictions correlate strongly with test data and are accurate across time and conditions. Watch out for rare signaling patterns though.

In-depth individual interviews of 25 #women #workers at the Ambassador Bridge produced #breastcancer risk understandings & agency narratives.

Kathy said: “put us all together, and pretty soon you have just got lots of stories that all have the same ending.”

A thread

The research captures & explains layered & multifactorial influences on women’s narratives of #breastcancer risks & related agency and to see how #health and health knowledge are constructed in a #nested set of relationships.

Multiple information sources influenced #women’s #breastcancer risk and agency narratives.

Social, cultural & experiential information were all included.

#Workplace & #environmental exposures & socio-cultural aspects of work & environment were critical to the narratives.
