A pathologist’s first words:

“red is dead, blue is bad.”

Only 53…leg. Didn’t suspect it. Only hx of prior nevi removed.
I suppose it’s obvious where the diagnosis is headed… ImageImageImageImage
I only did 3 stains, probably could have used just 1, but with the lack of history I guess it felt right to super-prove it . ImageImageImageImage

“The beauty of #Women's/#girls#hair & #skin mostly depends on their menstrual health”

I hv been proving this #Ayurveda concept on many female patients.

As usual, this lady also came 2 me 4 her EXCESSIVE HAIR FALL problem from last 7-8 yrs ( & NOT

#ayurvedictreatment 🧵 Image
for her #menstruation probs)

I often ask about the menstrual health of a lady if she comes for any health probs.
On asking, she revealed

📌Excessively heavy bleeding 🩸 for 6 DAYS per cycle (at 33 days interval)
📌Around 30-40% clots
📌Blackish 🩸 colour
📌Foul smell

the above probs were present from last 20 yrs (just from the MENARCHE)

She had been taking #Hempushpa like OTC #Ayurveda drugs from last many yrs. with no improvement.

She also consulted several Gynaecologist, but no improvement in menstrual probs.

EL ÓRGANO MÁS GRANDE del cuerpo es… ¡la piel! 🖐🏼🦵🏻👩🏻

Y al estar en contacto directo con el ambiente es un sitio inmunológicamente muy activo

Así que hoy les hablaré un poco sobre sus aspectos básicos 😁

#Skin #Immunology #Derma

La función principal de la #piel es la de ser una barrera entre nuestro interior y el exterior 🛡

Cuando esta función no se lleva a cabo adecuadamente aparecen enfermedades como la #dermatitis atópica, #psoriasis, ictiosis, dermatitis por contacto, etc 😖

El funcionamiento adecuado d la piel implica una comunicación constante y d una precisión exquisita entre #células inmunes y no inmunes. Por mencionar algunas:

No inmunes: queratinocitos, fibroblastos, #adipocitos,etc

Inmunes: Células dendríticas (DCs), #macrófagos, etc

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
