We @statnews published this story on the first randomized trial evaluating #colonoscopy #screening for colorectal #cancer. tl;dr - results disappointed docs, but many nuances to consider.🧵continues on nuances, impt details, and health news you can use 1/8…
At first glance, intent to screen colonoscopy did not reduce colon cancer deaths in this trial. It did reduce cancer incidence by 18% which is great. Biggest caveat is that only 42% of the ppl in the screening group actually got a colonoscopy 2/8
When you compare just the people who got colonoscopy to those who didn't get it, colonoscopy looks like it has a 50% reduction in cancer mortality and 30% reduction in incidence. That was a secondary analysis called the per protocol analysis 3/8

May 8th = World Ovarian Cancer Day 2022 #WOCD2022

A thread 🧵 on some points I wish to relay as a Medical Oncologist with subspecialty in GYN oncology and based in fair Ireland 🇮🇪

The most common symptoms of ovarian cancer are the #BEAT symptoms - always get checked out by your GP if you have these or other symptoms that are not resolving


There is no reliable #screening test for ovarian cancer

❌ Pap smears do not diagnose ovarian cancer
❌ Ca125 is not a reliable test
❌ Pelvic/vaginal USS may miss a diagnosis or overdiagnose a normal cyst

Until we have better screening, symptoms are all we have #BEAT

1/ Welcome back to #StatswithCoreIM !

What would you tell this patient who inquires about lab cancer #screening test to help him “live longer”?

What types of bias can occur in determining whether a cancer screening test reduces mortality?
2/ Take a look at the bolded arrows below that illustrate that early detection doesn’t always mean better outcomes!

Length-time bias applies to slow-growing disease in which patients have a long phase without symptoms.
3/ Lead time bias applies to situations where patients are screened earlier, so they are diagnosed earlier, so they appear to live longer solely by nature of knowing they have the disease for a longer period of time.

Therefore, survival time⬆️⬆️

Dr. Sean McWeeny started this meta-analysis in 2018. He has become such a star in this area of work. He co-developed the SnowGlobe tool to automate searching each paper's refs and future citations to ensure we had excellent coverage of the literature.
Sean, PhD student Jinnie Choi, & a great team of undergraduates in the @nulearnlab screened well over 4,600 articles for inclusion in the analyses. Final count included 67 studies with 10,513 participants. We used analyses that let us look at multiple effect sizes within studies.

I wonder whose bright idea it was that if a #vagina managed penetrative #sexual activity, it must be pliable to #insertion of the speculum 😒. Whoever that was definitely disregarded the physiology of sexual #arousal & vaginal changes in the moment that facilitate #penetration.
@vagina_museum shows that everyone's apparatus is different then how can #Gynecology stick to a one size fits all model? #publichealth should strive to develop minimally invasive self administered #screening tests & #gynaecologist must #research on making procedures comfortable.…
This shows that topical #anesthetic agents reduce #pain and #discomfort during speculum manipulation. Why can't the usage of topical #anesthesia be a #standard process in #Gynecology? Why such blatant disregard for #patient #comfort? 😠 #misogyny much?

How enduring use of 150-year-old speculum puts women off smear tests #cervicalcheck #pain…
I was invited by @NHSEngland for routine #cervicalscreening and despite the efforts of my practice #nurse, even the smallest available #speculum caused me greatest amount of #pain and we had to stop the #procedure within a minute after insertion.
I have been in pain for 9hrs now. 😑 No test designed for #screening #population should be thus. It is hardly conducive for #uptake. Why has #gynaecology stuck with this 'instrument of torture', despite advances in #medicalinstrumentation? Could it be #apathy? @MamaDoctorJones

More info on the @CancerPrev_KCL & @CR_UK-run NHS-Galleri™ #screening trial:……

Worth noting you can't #volunteer for this trial, but if you are 50-77 & haven't been diagnosed with cancer in the past 3 years, you may be #invited... Image
The NHS-Galleri™ #screening trial is a proper #RCT, which means half of the 140,000 participants WON'T be tested (certainly not in the initial phase) and NONE will be told whether they have been #tested or not.

Of course if the test indicates *possible* markers for #cancer... Image
...then you will be contacted by the trial nurse by phone, and will be referred to an NHS hospital for further tests.

So every participant in the NHS-Galleri™ #screening trial should still attend standard screening & should contact their GP if they notice any unusual symptoms: Image

1/5 Which #TravelRestrictions were most effective to contain the spread of #COVID19?🌍New systematic review out now in the Journal of Infection (pre-proof):


@rki_de @CBcheraoui @Elie__Akl @SPARK_AUB @biainfection

2/5 In 2020, most countries switched from total to targeted #border closures followed by mandatory #quarantine and #screening of #travelers.
3/5 Evidence suggests: border closures may reduce the number of #COVID19 cases, disrupt disease spread across countries/between regions & slow #outbreak progression.

Early implementation, in combination with measures to reduce #transmission rates, likely enhances these effects.

Before #COVID19, #TB was the leading infectious disease killer

People with TB r not systematically screened for severe illness @ diagnosis. Something we do in COVID19

To #EndTBDeaths, @TbDivision recommends assessment of severity @ diagnosis n referral 4 inpatient care
Existing #TBProgramme guidance to assess severity among people with TB requires clinical capacity and diagnostic and radiology infrastructure

Yesterday, after a long discussion with a close family member who is a US MD phd, we agreed that with world's best #contagion models (% masks & social interaction) available in world today, the covid take-off could at best have been predicted 7 to 10 days before it exploded...2/
2/covid #Covid Pragmatic suggestion is to ban all #Social gatherings of > 7-10 people (indoors & outdoors), till curve turns down, but don't stop economic activity (w cumplusory masking, distancing). Once curve flattens, outdoor gathering restrictions can be eased with masking
3/covid Cities/towns/urban,/semi urban; rural markets/melas areas are where there is the greatest interaction between people (mobility & personal interaction are the key parameters in these virus spread models)

Der #Selbsttest und meine Gedanken, warum die Kritiker und Kritikerinnen häufig einen 🍏🍐 Vergleich machen. Es lohnt sich, @michaelmina_lab zu folgen. Er und sein Labor publizieren laufend zu #RapidAntigenTests in Fachjournals. #COVID19 #Coronavirus 1/X
Erstens, der Vergleich mit #PCR hinkt. Man will mit #Selbsttests nicht die gleichen Personen finden. Mit PCR will man #Infizierte finden. Der Test ist so sensitiv, dass man auch Infizierte findet, die noch sehr wenig Virus haben, oder deren Infektion 2 Wochen alt ist. 2/X
Selbsttests hingegen sind viel einfacher in der Handhabung als PCR und eignen sich für #Screening. #Selbsttests haben eine Stärke: sie erkennen hohe Mengen an #Virus, das heisst Personen mit hoher #Viruslast. Diese sind nachgewiesen diejenigen mit hoher Übertragungsgefahr. 3/X
