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

Welcome back, George.

Now, about that "race-to-the-bottom" slashing of #data #protections...

...which include the intent to (re)define "#ScientificResearch" 🤔🤔🤔

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.

Screening People with Tuberculosis for High Risk of Severe Illness at Notification: Programmatic Experience from Karnataka, India in journal #TMID via @MDPIOpenAccess

#OperationalResearch led by @SharathBN and me
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

This is usually not present in peripheral health institutes where patients are diagnosed

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

My @screener_in Story !

This is coming straight from my❤️ !

I have my regular job (8-9 hr just like most of us), need to take care of my India, US Equity & Crypto investments and above all need to spend some quality time with my family too.

@faltoo @ayushmitt

Finding right stocks which suits your profile isn't easy. Takes lot of time & info is scattered all over.
Compiling & making sense out of it is just cumbersome. Watching for alerts & news is another nuisance.
How to stay focused & not get diverted with new ideas every day ?

I faced all these CHALLENGES & I am sure most of us do. There is no one right solution. It's like trying to achieve salvation. No one path is right but Jumping paths will just leave you wandering.

I chose mine with @screener_in

Logik zum #Öffnungsplan der #Bundesregierung
Wo, wie und wie schnell infiziert man sich mit dem #Coronavirus? Solange die Regierung Entscheidungen - magels Datenlage - ohne Evidenz trifft, solange ist es Willkür, wann welche Bereiche geöffnet und andere geschlossen bleiben #Spahn
Die Mutante #B117 erreicht in diesen Tagen -in den ersten Bundesländern- ihre #Dominanz. #R steigt zeitgleich und die #Regierung erhöht per #Öffnungsplan die #Mobilität: B117, Öffnungsplan u. gesteigerte Mobilität sind drei Faktoren die logisch #R exponentiell beeinflussen können
Zeitgleich werden #Kitas u. #Schulen geöffnet, also die Versammlungsorte, vor deren Öffnung uns Experten und Ärzte aus #Israel u. Kanada warnen. Begründet wird die #Öffnung mit "Meinungen" von Wissenschaftlern, deren #Studien -manipulierte Daten- aus #Schweden zitieren #twlz #KMK

A more polished thread on #epigenomic #biomarkers for #LiquidBiopsy and #CancerScreening:
Epigenomic biomarkers are becoming more established for #LiquidBiopsy and #CancerScreening, and we have seen the big players positioning themselves in this #epigenomics race recently.
Catching signs of #cancer early is crucially important to the disease management and survival rates, so the question is: how can we find out if there is something wrong going on early enough, ideally in a low-cost assay that can be performed regularly on healthy individuals?

@sbarnettARK Epigenomic biomarkers are becoming more established for #LiquidBiopsy and #CancerScreening, and we have seen the big players positioning themselves in this #epigenomics race recently.
@sbarnettARK Catching signs of #cancer early is crucially important to the disease management and survival rates, so the question is: how can we find out if there is something wrong going on early enough?
@sbarnettARK The first generation of high-throughput technologies was predicated on finding mutated (tumor) DNA in the individual's body (somatic), different from their (normal) DNA. Tumor/Normal (T/N) comparisons of the individual's samples, biopsies or ctDNA will indicate if there

Österreich geht nun also bei der #Covid19-Strategie für #Schulen und Kindergärten den Weg der Schweiz beim Testen und Containment der #Kinder unter 10 Jahren.

"no test
no data
no proof
no problem" 1/2… ImageImage
#COVID19-Delegierter #Schweiz, #Koch 1.5.2020:

"Es wird nicht zu einer Epidemie unter den Schulkindern kommen. Und es ist keine Gefahr, weder für die Eltern zuhause, noch für die Lehrerschaft. Und dazu stehen wir auch." #Coronazitate

no data, no problem… Image
Als Hoffnung für ein reales Bild an den #Schulen in Österreich bleibt das #Screening.

Die repräsentativen Stichproben werden bei entsprechender #Covid19-Ausbreitung wohl aussagekräftig sein.

Die Infektionsketten aller anderen Fälle bleiben im Dunklen.

Achtung, das Lesen dieses Beitrags könnte Enttäuschung hervorrufen. Muss aber mal raus.

Das Video unten erklärt, was es eigentlich machen sollte. Dabei klaffen aber Anspruch und Wirklichkeit des @rki_de

weit auseinander. Robert Koch würde sich wahrscheinlich im Grabe umdrehen, wenn er wüsste, wofür sein Name missbraucht wird. Das #RKI ist absolut kein #Forschungsinstitut sondern zunächst mal eine Behörde, untergeordnet dem @BMG_Bund mit Dienstherr @jensspahn und übergeordnet den
Gesundheitsämtern. Offenbar war der Begriff #Gesundheitsamt zu schnöde. Wird am RKI geforscht ? Nein. Es werden lediglich Forschungsergebnisse anderer bewertet, zusammengetragen und veröffentlicht und digital abgeheftet. Es wird bei #Corona gezählt, Grafiken erstellt und als PDF

Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB), a #Thread

Myths & Rumors

A lot of rumors circulate around this selection and assessment centre e.g,

🔻 Only reserved for wards of Soldiers or those having a military background.

🔹 Totally wrong rather many wards of Soldiers / Senior officers (including Jernail de Puttar) get Not-Recommended.

🔻 Ethnicity or background matters in selection.
🔹Army damn cares about who you are & where you come from. Many senior officers or Influentials don't..

...send their kids or discourage them out of fear of 'Rejection' primarily they know their kids better (pun intended).

🔻 Preparing from ISSB Training Academies get immediate rejection.
🔹 This is #True, reason is ISSB has a whole paraphernalia of assessment officers..

Pubblicato il nuovo bollettino @istsupsan @MinisteroSalute monitoraggio #covid19

Lo trovate qui:…

Alcune considerazioni su #decessi, casi #sintomatici e #importati Image

Il documento riporta 35644 decessi, mentre la tabella @DPCgov del 15 agosto ne riporta 35392. Questo fa supporre che ci siano 252 decessi non ancora conteggiati.
Da aspettarsi quindi verifiche analoghe a quella di ieri di @RegioneER Image
#Sintomatici vs #Asintomatici parte 1
Il documento riporta 22906 casi attivi, ma non considera gli ultimi dati non consolidati e presenta ritardi.
Per 18062 è disponibile la gravità clinica:
51.5% asintomatici
8.9% pauci-sintomatici
22.6% sintomi lievi
15.7% severi
1.2% critici Image

Our research team @CUHKMedicine analysed >300 specimens from 14 #HongKong patients confirmed with #COVID19 and discovered that the virus was detectable in the #stool samples of all patients, regardless of the degree of illness.
3 out of 14 patients still had viruses in their #stool samples even though the virus was no longer found in #sputum, nasopharyngeal and deep throat saliva samples.
Our study suggests that virus shedding in stool may have public health implications. First, it may serve as an alternative #screening tool in people without #respiratory symptoms.
