1/50 #Science is an ongoing process that serves to investigate phenomena, gain new insights or "correct prior knowledge" and this only works in #discourse. This includes diversity of #Opinion, #tolerance and a broad debate space. This is a large thread.
2/50 "#trust the science" is in my view the most #antiscience statement ever. #Questioning science is how you do #Science. This thread gives some examples and further questions.…
3/50 What about good ##scientific #Practice? I found a glaring example here (of all things, in what I consider to be a rush to #vaccine #approval). #blotgate…

1/ XBB.1.5 has a much stronger ability to infect people, binding stronger to ACE-2 receptors. We have these in our nose,& throat but also in our eyes & ears.

COVID as been known to infect through the eyes but its been fairly rare. XBB.1.5 will likely increase the odds.
2/ Pink eye symptoms will likely be a COVID infection for the next month or two, at least. There is a good chance it will be the XBB.1.5 variant. Searches for Conjunctivitis & Pinkeye are on the rise, as expected. Most people won't make the connection to COVID but now you know.
3/ An early study, "Our study found that the average duration of conjunctival congestion was 5.9 ± 4.5 days (mean [SD]), ranging from two to twenty-four days"
Initial top 3 symptoms:
Dry eye (20%)
Blurred vision (12.7%)
Foreign body sensation(11.8%)…

1/As promised & after reading $NTLA latest Q1 2022 financial report here is my analysis regarding @intelliatx latest corporate status. I have focused only on the main issues that I found to be the most interesting & relevant. #CRISPR #GeneEditing #BioTech #FinTwit #Genomics👇
2/NTLA-2001 is the most advanced In-Vivo #CRISPR/#Cas9 #GeneEditing program in $NTLA portfolio & is aimed to treat Transthyretin Amyloidosis - (ATTR). NTLA-2001 could potentially halt & reverse the disease in a “one time” treatment by knocking out the TTR gene with a single dose
3/In February $NTLA has presented an updated clinical data from its Phase 1 study of NTLA-2001 which included 15 patients with ATTR amyloidosis. IMO NTLA-2001 readout looks promising & here is a summary that I wrote shortly after @intelliatx’s presentation of NTLA-2001👇

Hi #medtwitter + new onc fellows! I treat patients with advanced #melanoma, especially rare ones like #uvealmelanoma (UM). This #tweetorial will discuss:

1) Why UM is unique
2) When does(n’t) immunotherapy work for UM
3) Why we prefer clinical trials for advanced UM

UM affects about 5/million, and about 3-5% of advanced melanomas in the US arise from the uveal tract (iris, ciliary body, choroid). Of these, iris is rarest + least aggressive, so we often call it “choroidal” melanoma.

Get your dilated eye exams, folks!

2/x Image
Choroid and cilio-choroid melanomas can be aggressive. ~50% of the largest tumors metastasize; about 20% of medium ones do.

Look at that lack of plateau! Plenty of mets happen late, >5 years out. It's sad but fascinating when immune system controls disease for years, then (🤬) Image
