Study from @salkinstitute found that partial reprogramming using the #Yamanaka transcription factors (#Oct4, #Sox2, #Klf4 & #cMyc) for short periods of time:

-restored a youthful #epigenetic signature to #aging cells & extends the life span of a #premature #aging mouse model.
-long-term partial reprogramming led to rejuvenating effects in different tissues, such as the #kidney & #skin, and at the #organismal level; duration of the treatment determined the extent of the beneficial effects.
-The rejuvenating effects were associated with a reversion of the #epigenetic clock and metabolic and #transcriptomic changes, including reduced expression of genes involved in the #inflammation, #senescence & #stressresponse pathways.…

What all steps can our friends with Diabetes take to keep their feet healthy?

Always remember, Prevention is better, cheaper and safer than cure.

Few pointers about footcare for patients with Diabetes. A thread 🧵

Do read and share.

#Diabetes #Footcare (1/n)
Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet🦶

Even a small cut can have serious consequences.

It can affect blood flow to the lower limbs, affecting healing and making prone to infection.

It can affect nerves leading to reduced sensation including pain. #Diabetes #Footcare (2/n)
If you have diabetes & develop a blister or cut or a sore, it could lead to a non healing wound that could progress & some cases requiring surgeries & even amputation. We see many cases in late stages, hence requires intervention. Many are PREVENTABLE. #Diabetes #Footcare (3/n)

We now know that #AVCT's Affimers are being used in at least 5 diagnostics products for #COVID19:

- LFT (with Cytiva)
- BAMS (with Adeptrix)
- ELISA (in-house)
- Microtox BT (with #SKIN)
- Microtox PD (with SKIN)

Working prototypes for all.

And people still doubt Affimers? 1/9
For BAMS and Microtox BT and PD, #AVCT's work is largely complete. It will simply be providing a regular supply of Affimers to Adeptrix and #SKIN, and enjoy steady royalties (which, as many of us are beginning to realise, could be for much longer than initially anticipated).

This frees up mgmt's time to focus on the proprietary tests, the (all-important!) LFT and the ELISA (which I believe most are under-estimating the earnings potential of).

Whilst some might point out that none of the 5 products have yet been commercialised, I would argue... 3/9

The lack of pumping from #AVCT following today's #SKIN update and indeed ever since this particular potential revenue stream was first published (13th July), along with their respect that this is a Integumen show, is worthy of note.
As AVCT stated today ;
"Once detailed validation of the sensors has been carried out using SARS-COV-2 virus samples at the University of Aberdeen, and we have reviewed those data, Avacta will provide a further update to the market."
So its again about having independent verified clinical data (not internal), before likely going into a full commercial agreement and then telling the market all about it.

That resonates once again with the approach to both the BAMS and LFT programmes.

Great news from #SKIN / #MWG / #AVCT: Affimers and Aptamers have been successfully incorporated into MWG's wastewater detection system for #COVID19, "Microtox PD".

Full beta testing to being shortly - commercial launch pencilled in for "early 2021".

Microtox PD could... 1/3
...ultimately become a major tool in the war against the #COVID19 pandemic.

Moreover, #SKIN has today announced a second #COVID19 diagnostics product: Microtox BT, a real-time breath analyser. Prototype built, "extensive internal testing" completed, more advanced trials now. 2/3
Microtox BT (if proved viable) could be launched start of 2021.

It's easy to see how the commercial opp. for each product is vast. I no longer hold #SKIN, but as an #AVCT shareholder - whose Affimers are used in both products - I am extremely excited by today's news.

Firstly a hearty congratulations to #SKIN on their progress to date and their announcement today.

Some #AVCT thoughts.

SKIN RNS 13th July ;
"Once initial testing on the Affimers is completed over the next few weeks,"
"validation of the sensors on the real SARS-CoV-2 virus will be carried out at the containment level 3 ("CL3") laboratory in the University of Aberdeen."

"Upon successful completion of the evaluation, Integumen and the Avacta will enter into a supply agreement"
Furthermore ;
"Microtox BT has undergone extensive internal testing"

"Microtox PD has now successfully completed initial spike protein testing and validation"

and detects "the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 in real-time for those with a high viral load."

Let's get back to the basics. A #dermtwitter #tweetorial on:


My plan is to make a #Derm101 series on #morphology and the #skin exam, so this will be the first in that series of #medthreads.

#MedEd #FOAMEd #medtwitter #medstudenttwitter pc:@dermnetnz Image
Why are #dermatologists so obsessed with description?

Well, for us, morphology is everything. We start with the exam and take the history afterward based on the possible differential we've come up with!

So let's start simple. What was that lesion in the prior tweet?
That was a PATCH of vitiligo.

PATCHES are flat lesions >1 cm wide, whereas MACULES are flat lesions <1 cm wide! Check out photo #1 of perioral vitiligo where macules are coalescing into patches!

In #2, you can see both macules and patches in these Cafe au lait lesions. ImageImage

1. #Skin Bleaching Affects Families

A thread (Please read to the end)

"Skin is Skin", so whatever your complexion, it’s important to use products that will help your skin and not damage it as skin bleaching will. Image
2. Skin bleaching has proven to be a growing trend with many people embracing it for different reasons. Medics, however, warn that the act comes with several risks that are extremely damaging to one’s health.
3. Currently, the active ingredients in skin-lightening products are hydroquinone, mercury, and corticosteroids. Most products on the market include one or all of these ingredients at concentrations that exceed the recommended value.

If a person is poisoned by bleach, fuel, acid, drugs, fumes, etc, the first aid treatment you give can prevent death!

What to do depends on type of poison & whether it's on the skin, eyes, inhaled or swallowed.

What to do:

1. If poison is on the #skin or clothes;

- quickly & carefully remove victim's clothes
- pour large amounts of #water over the skin for 15 minutes
- wash skin thoroughly many times with soap & water
- move to nearest hospital!
2. If poison is in the #eyes;

- remove any contact lenses
- pour CLEAN WATER in the eyes for 15 minutes (DON'T USE SOAP!)
- encourage blinking
- move to hospital instantly

Every second here matters & a slight delay could lead to permanent loss of sight!

'New' concrete news for #AVCT!

A third #COVID19 diagnostics collaboration, this one with AIM peers #SKIN and #MWG.

AVCT's Affimer reagents to be used in SKIN's next-generation sensors, which are incorporated into MWG's Microtox water contamination system to detect COVID-19. 1/6
"#MWG's Microtox system, which can detect the presence of contaminating bacteria, virus and toxins, is distributed by MWG and has a global footprint of over 3,000 installations."

"#AVCT's Affimer sensors would be consumable items to be replaced on a roughly monthly basis." 2/6
A welcome surprise for me - although in hindsight, it should not have been. #AVCT has repeatedly alluded to incorporating its Affimers into additional diagnostic platforms for #COVID19.

A few very exciting aspects of this collab:

i) Very near-term, monthly recurring revs... 3/6

Today, let's discuss a common #skin condition that is very challenging to treat- #ECZEMA.

Eczema (aka #atopicdermatitis) is a long-term type of dermatitis (inflamed skin) that usually runs in families.
When a person has eczema, they usually develop a patchy skin rash that Image
is itchy, red, scaly, and dry. Eczema affects adults and children alike—most people get it before age 5.

#Doctors don’t know what causes eczema but research has traced a scientific link between eczema and #stress.
When we experience a stressful situation, the body goes into fight-or-flight mode and responds by increasing the production of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. But when the body produces too much cortisol, it can suppress the immune system and cause an inflammatory

It is an enormous pleasure to be part of this #paper: #COVID-PIEL, the Spanish muticentric study of the #cutaneous manifestation of #COVID19 has just been published in the prestigious journal British Journal of Dermatology! 375 patients included! Conclusions here 👇 (#thread)
A new classification of #skin manifestations of #COVID19 is proposed: 1. Acral areas of erythema-oedema with some vesicles or pustules (19%); 2. Other vesicular eruptions (9%); 3 Urticarial lesions (19%); 4. Other maculopapules (47%) and 5. Livedo or necrosis (6%)
1⃣ Acral lesions, #COVIDtoes, pseudo-chiblains..., affected young patients and lasted a mean of 12,7 days to appear in the course of COVID. They were associated with less severe disease. Itchy (30%) or painful (32%).

Dermatologist are seeing more and more #skin symptoms related to #COVID19 . Acral lesions (i.e. hands and feet) are particularly frequent, specially in #children and #youngadult with no or few COVID symptoms. After seeing many cases, here is my vision: #Thread 👇
I think that these kind of lesions can be classified in four types. 1. Chilblain-like lesions, which are the most described, usually affecting many fingers / toes, either symmetrically or not. Pruritic and/or painful.
2. Insect-bite like lesions, that may also appear in the palm and the soles. Very #itchy and persistent (more than 2 weeks in some cases)
