A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

Hey #tipsfornewdocs #medtwitter folks! I wanted to review side effects of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) for a non-#oncology audience. Immune-related adverse events (irAEs) present across all medicine specialties so we are all in this together. 1/x
The most common ICIs are against PD-1 (e.g. nivolumab, pembrolizumab) and PD-L1 (e.g. atezolizumab, durvalumab). I use a blanket term “PD-1” throughout. Anti-CTLA-4 (ipilimumab) is a distant second; often in combo or directly after PD-1 in #melanoma #lung #kidney cancers. 2/x
They have led to pharma riches and Nobel Prizes and lots of TV commercials because they work really well for some patients. People with advanced #melanoma, #lcsm etc who used to live ~1 year now can hope to live for several years or more. 3/x
