3/10 Be prepared for the start of your period. Always carry spare pads and tampons with you. Many women always have everything they need with them - they may need it themselves, or for a friend, colleague, or even a stranger who wore white pants on the wrong day. Image

Cancer and mycobacterium Tuberculosis, both ancient foes of humans

How did we get to the point of fighting cancer WITH a form of mycobacterium?

and what does this have to do with Rheumatology?

let's investigate! 🧵

#meded #cancer #urology @LCalabreseDO @HRheuminations
Let's start with a little background on BCG vaccine

Calmette and Guerin (the C and G), worked on a vaccine to protect people from the scourge that was/is mycobacterium tuberculosis

how to do this?

Step 1

Isolate a similar bacterium off a cow (M. bovis)

thanks cow
Step 2

Run it over a funky concoction of potatoes, glycerin and cow bile (delicious!)

M. Bovis lost virulence after multiple passages over cultures

(similar process done with rabies vaccine, so the Pasteur institute knew a thing or two about how to do this)

Fable says Pablo Picasso faced a similar paradox. One warm summer’s day he was sitting in a park when a woman recognised the artist, approached him, and insisted he sketch her. Smiling Picasso reached for his sketchpad and created her portrait with a single stroke of his pencil. Image

Comment posted in the @JAMANetworkOpen, because epidemiologic studies are very insightful, when done before RCTs. Congrats to the authors, who have tried their best to evaluate the impact of ADT on the increased survival. #antiandrogens #Covid_19 #urology @EricKleinMD Image

In last month’s issue of #SIUJ, @JessicaDeLong23 and @RamonVirasoro discuss the development of a GURS fellowship and training program in the Caribbean #OpenAccess #urology #urosome

With over 5 billion people lacking access to adequate surgical and anesthesia care across the globe, the global health community is focusing on reducing these health inequalities by improving access and overall outcomes.

During annual mission trips to Dominican Republic (DR), the authors recognized a need for more Urological Reconstructive Surgery trained physicians within the community. This need inspired the creation of a GURS in the DR.

We proudly share the first @CovidSurg @GlobalSurg paper published in @Anaes_Journal based on the world’s biggest data about surgery following SARS-CoV-2 infection. Hopefully, it will guide practice.

📃It is open access and you can read it here 👇…
@CovidSurg @GlobalSurg Week was an international, prospective cohort study with more than 140,000 surgical patients from 116 countries enrolled 🌏🌎🌍

We compared 30-day postoperative mortality in previously infected patients with SARS-CoV-2 vs patients who never were infected
Previously infected patients having surgery at 0-2, 3-4, 5-6 weeks after the infection have higher mortality rates than patients who never got infected with SARS-CoV-2 ImageImage
