*ATTENTION PLEASE*#AI #digitalhealth #tweeps Today @IndraJoshi10 and I at @NHSX are launching our new "Artificial Intelligence: How to get it right report" with help from A LOT of people across the digital health ecosystem… 1/ 14
The report goes into detail on our plans for the NHS AI lab but, more importantly, the research that sits beneath that - particularly the work on governance: ethics and regulation with invaluable input from @reformthinktank @oxfordethicslab @turinginst @FutureAdvocacy 2/14
We (@IndraJoshi10 & me) hope that the report makes it clear WHY we think #AI is important for health and care & HOW we can make sure it is utilised in the 'right' way - not just for the sake of it - within safe & ethical boundaries 3/14

Since my recent "tweetorial" about the history of ring sideroblasts & Prussian blue seems to have been well received, I thought I’d follow up with the fascinating and sordid history of the term, “Refractory Anemia” (RA). (This ugly #MDS image is from a book I edited years ago.)/1
The 1982 #FAB #MDS classification included chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), plus 4 categories with the term RA: 1) RA, 2) RARS (i.e., RA w/ ring sideroblasts), 3) RAEB (RA with excess blasts), and 4) RAEB-t (RAEB in transformation to #AML). But where did "RA" come from?/2
Iron salts had been used since the 17th century to treat “chlorosis” – i.e., the green sickness, characterized by weakness and pallor. Thomas Sydenham (1624–1689) is usually given credit for first rational use. Here's a classic painting of a young woman fainting from chlorosis./3

There is an interesting history behind these cells, so familiar to hematologists & pathologists: ring (formerly 'ringed') sideroblasts. While most commonly associated with #MDS or inherited disorders like #XLSA, they can also result from ethanol or TB drugs - even hypothermia./1
Sideroblasts and siderocytes - red cells and their precursors with iron granules in the cytoplasm visualized by a chemical reaction - were first described by Hans Grüneberg in 1942, a Jewish refugee from Germany working in London @ucl from 1933. /2
In 1955, Sven-Erik Björkman, working in Jan Gösta Waldenström's hematology unit @lunduniversity (thus far this tweetorial has 100% umlaut surnames!) noticed 4 of his anemic patients had weird sideroblasts: the iron granules encircled the nucleus. One of them developed leukemia./3

@fernandokrammer depois do silêncio adotado ao observar que NÃO foi nada inteligente apoiar o #Golpe feito na democracia #brasileira, é incoerente se acovardar diante as manobras direcionadas nos diferentes sistemas
