For the third straight week, no NBA players tested positive for the coronavirus. As it turns out, we are not powerless to stop the deadly pathogen. With stringent measures in place and a robust testing program, it is possible to curtail it. That s the formula that s worked for other developed nations, and it s worked for the NBA, too. That may seem like rudimentary analysis five months into a pandemic that s killed nearly 160,000 Americans. But the NBA has implemented strict protocols that have not been tried in the U.S. on a universal scale.

There was a significant decline in newly diagnosed cancer patients in the U.S. during the initial months of the coronavirus pandemic, a new study shows.
Various treatments for hyperthyroidism were not found to be associated with significant differences in risk of death from solid cancers, according to the results of a large, multicenter cohort study published in JAMA Network. The study included data on 31,363 patients with hyperthyroidism who were part of the Cooperative Thyrotoxicosis Therapy Follow up Study, which was a cohort study of patients who were treated for hyperthyroidism at US and UK medical centers between January 1, 1946, and December 31, 1964. Treatments included radioactive iodine, antithyroid drugs, surgery, or a combination of therapies. US patients were followed through December 31, 2014, translating to a median follow up of 26 years. Most patients 71.3% were treated with an antithyroid drug alone or in combination; radioactive iodine alone or in combination and surgery alone or in combination were used less frequently (62.5% and 43.6%, respectively). Baseline characteristics for each treatment group varied by age, underlying diagnosis, and comorbidities. The analysis initially showed that patients treated with antithyroid drug only appeared to have increased mortality rates for solid cancer (standardized mortality ratio SMR 1.31; 95% CI, 1.11 1.53), breast cancer (SMR 1.85; 95% CI, 1.31 2.62), and nonbreast solid cancer (SMR 1.22; 95% CI, 1.01 1.46). However, when patients with prior cancers were excluded from analysis, these risks were attenuated. The elevated risks were found to be restricted to the first 5 years of follow up and disappeared when patients with prior cancers were excluded from the analysis.Continue ReadingIn an adjusted analysis, the hazard ratio (HR) of solid cancer death did not differ by treatment when patients with prior cancers were excluded. The analysis did, however, reveal a modest positive association between risk of solid cancer death and total administered activity among patients treated with radioactive iodine (HR 1.08 per 370 MBq; 95% CI, 1.03 1.13; P .001). After accounting for known sources of bias, we observed no significant differences in risk across treatment groups based on external and internal cohort comparisons, the study authors concluded. Notably, we found no evidence of an increased risk of solid cancer death associated with use of antithyroid drugs . Disclosure: A study author declared affiliations with the pharmaceutical industry.
