The total population involved in the study is about 103 people of whom the majority were none smokers, and all of them were from Taiwan. While in countries like only a small amount of none smoking populations contribute to lung cancer but in South Asian countries, its vice verse. While scientists we;re focusing on the genes of these patients, they found that the early stage cancers of none smokers are similar to those of advanced stages in the smoking population. They also found tumors behave differently in women because of the EGFR gene, whereas men have KRAS and APC genes. These differences mean that the therapeutics of the treating men and women will definitely very.Read Also: WHO confirms rising reports of airborne transmission of COVID 19

The court said that when pregnant women go for deliveries they cannot wait five to six days for carrying out the tests and declaration of the results. ;Immediately requests should be accepted and immediately results should be given,; the bench said.The Delhi government told the court that as per the advisory issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the tests results would be declared within an hour. The advisory was however silent on the timeline regarding processing of requests for testing, the Delhi government said, adding that it has issued a notification which states all applications for tests would be processed within 48 hours.The bench asked the Delhi government to place the advisory and notification before it and listed the matter for hearing on Thursday, July 9. The court also asked it whether negative outcome of a rapid test was acceptable or whether an RT PCR test result also be required before admitting a pregnant woman.The Delhi government counsel sought time to take instructions on the query raised by the bench. The court was hearing a PIL by a lawyer who has sought that test results of pregnant women be given priority.The high court on June 22 had remarked that 5 7 days cannot be taken for getting COVID 19 results for pregnant women prior to admitting them in hospitals for child birth and asked the ICMR and Delhi government to look at expediting it.Thereafter, Delhi government filed an affidavit stating that prior COVID 19 test was not mandatory for admitting pregnant women in hospitals for in patient interventions, including surgery and deliveries, and in emergent situations, treatment would not be denied for want of test results.The test can be conducted simultaneously with the treatment and if the result comes out to be positive, the pregnant woman would ideally be transferred to a dedicated COVID 19 hospital for further management, the Delhi government had told the high court.It had also said that it has "expanded " the use of Rapid Antigen Testing at hospitals to ensure availability of test results in quick time and this will further take care of difficulties being faced by people patients, including pregnant women.ICMR, in its response filed through central government standing counsel Vivek Goyal, had said it has issued guidelines for management of pregnant women during the COVID 19 pandemic and there are no restrictions for testing pregnant women for COVID l9 symptoms.
The congruence between the US and India has been increasing over the years both have strong leaders who responded bravely to the COVID 19 pandemic the results are for everyone to see. India is fast catching up with the US in terms of the total number of COVID 19 affected patients. It is thanks to a common feature shared by both Trump and Modi: stubbornness, not science being the guiding material.There is another commonality between the two, pertaining to the period of the pandemic. It is the large scale evictions of tenants in their respective countries by landlords. The only difference is that in India, it was the state apparatus which further compounded the effect of evictions by forcefully carrying out a spree of demolitions and eviction of its citizens.

The Affordable Care Act expanded Medicaid coverage for most adults in the United States with incomes up to 138% of the federal poverty level, and many states opted to do so starting in 2014. This led to increased enrollment in Medicaid, with most new enrollees reporting that they had previously been uninsured.Providing insurance coverage to these individuals may lead to more consistent care, including a greater likelihood that people will be routinely screened for cancer. To examine whether Medicaid expansion has led to earlier cancer detection, Uriel Kim, PhD, a medical student and researcher at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine s Center for Community Health Integration in Cleveland, Ohio, and his colleagues at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center analyzed information pertaining to 12,760 individuals in Ohio aged 30 to 64 years who were diagnosed with invasive breast, cervical, colorectal, or lung cancer in 2011 to 2016 and were uninsured or had Medicaid insurance at the time of diagnosis. The investigators compared data before Medicaid expansion (2011 to 2013) and after Medicaid expansion (2014 to 2016), noting whether patients were diagnosed with early (non metastatic) or advanced (metastatic) cancer.
Shushruta specialised in ophthalmic surgery (extraction of Cataracts). Shushruta was one of the first to study the human anatomy. In the Shusruta Samahita he has described in detail the study of anatomy with the aid of a dead body. Shusruta s forte was rhinoplasty (Plastic surgery) and ophthalmialogy (ejection of cataracts). Shushruta has described surgery under eight heads Chedya (excision), Lekhya (scarification), Vedhya (puncturing), Esya (exploration), Ahrya (extraction), Vsraya (evacuation) and Sivya (Suturing). The practice of surgery has been recorded in India around 800 B.C. This need not come as a surprise because surgery (Shastrakarma) is one of the eight branches of Ayurveda the ancient Indian system of medicine. The Ayurvedic practitioner was called vaidya, meaning a person of profound knowledge, who made use of what is called rational therapy. He examined the individual as a whole and not just his disease, took a careful note of the patient s innate physiology, mental state, and other factors such as age, food habits, and season of occurrence of disease. The vaidya conducted a thorough examination using both direct perception (pratyaksha) and inference (anumana). In addition, oral or written testimony of the personal experience of Ayurvedic experts was also accepted as a diagnostic tool (aptopadesha). The vaidya was also expected to question the patient in great detail (prashna), conduct a thorough physical examination using all his five senses (panchendriya pariksha), and confirm or negate his diagnosis through experimentation (yukti). Laying much emphasis on the vaidya s knowledge of drugs, he was supposed to keep in mind both its therapeutic and adverse effects. The Vaidyas laid equal emphasis on the cure of disease as well as prevention and health promotion. They prescribed a daily and seasonal routine as well as attention to nutrition for maintenance of a balanced state of health.Ayurvedic preceptors conceived the role of a physician as much more than mere treatment of diseases. He was to help an individual reach the ultimate spiritual goal of self emancipation, which would not be possible without a healthy mind and body. He was to educate the people about health and disease, and be able to communicate with the lay public and the scholars alike. This required wisdom and skilled communication. Charaka says this about the goal of the vaidya, Not for self, not for the fulfillment of any earthly desire or gain, but solely for the good of suffering, should you treat your patients and so excel all. Those who sell the treatment of diseases as merchandise gather dust and neglect gold. The ancient texts talk in detail about the doctor patient relationship. A vaidya was expected to be friendly and sympathetic toward his patients so that they do not fear him. Charaka recommends that the vaidya keep his conclusions to himself to avoid potential harm. Ayurvedic texts prohibit physicians from private conversations or indulging in jest with women.
NEW DELHI: India added a record number of coronavirus cases Sunday, approaching Russia as the world s third most infected nation as it opens a mass treatment center in the capital to fight the pandemic. The health ministry reported just under 25,000 cases and 613 deaths in 24 hours the biggest daily spike since the first case was detected in late January. The sharp rise came as Delhi started treating patients at a spiritual center converted into a sprawling isolation facility and hospital with 10,000 beds, many made of cardboard. About the size of 20 football fields, the facility will treat mild symptomatic and asymptomatic cases. State government officials fear the metropolis could record more than half a million cases by the end of the month. India s surge took the total tally to more than 673,000 cases and 19,268 deaths, with the country on the cusp of surpassing badly hit Russia. A strict lockdown in place since late March has gradually been lifted, allowing most activities as the economy nose dived amid the shutdown. Schools, metro trains in cities, cinemas, gyms and swimming pools remain closed however and international flights are still grounded. Authorities have made wearing masks mandatory in public places, while large gatherings are banned and shops and other public establishments are required to implement social distancing. The western state of Maharashtra, the worst hit state and home to financial hub Mumbai, recorded over 7,000 new cases. Southern Tamil Nadu state and the national capital New Delhi recorded more than 4,200 and 2,500 fresh cases respectively. Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, Tamil Nadu s capital, are the worst affected cities. The national government says it has tackled the virus well but critics allege India is conducting very few tests, leaving the true scale of the pandemic unknown. ROME: Ennio Morricone, one of the world s best known and most prolific film composers, died in Rome on Monday at the age of 91. Tributes poured in for the man who composed the music for about 500 films, including his old childhood friend Sergio Leone s 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Quentin Tarantino s The Hateful Eight for which he finally won an Oscar in 2016. Morricone died in hospital where he was being treated for a fractured femur following a fall, according to a statement from lawyer and family friend Giorgio Assuma. Morricone passed away in the early hours of July 6 with the comfort of his faith, the statement said. He remained fully lucid and with great dignity right until the end, it added. Tributes began pouring in for the maestro soon after his death was announced. We will remember forever and with infinite gratitude the artistic genius of maestro Ennio Morricone, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said. He made us dream, he moved us and made us think, writing unforgettable notes that will remain forever in the history of music and cinema, he said on Twitter. Italian film actress Monica Bellucci said of Morricone that there are people who have the ability to make the world better because they know how to create beauty, while Gilles Jacob, the former head of the Cannes film festival, described him as the emperor of film music. Famed Italian conductor Riccardo Muti called Morricone a master for whom I nurtured friendship and admiration, describing him as an extraordinary musician who could jump with ease from film scores to classical music. Born on November 10, 1928, Morricone began composing at the tender age of six, and at just 10 he enrolled in trumpet school at the prestigious Saint Cecilia conservatory in Rome. He played in jazz bands throughout the 1940s before beginning to ghost write for film and theater. In 1961, at the age of 33, he collaborated with director Luciano Salce in Mission Ultra secrete before going on to gain fame with the score for A Fistful of Dollars starring Clint Eastwood in 1964. Before winning the elusive Oscar for best film score at age 87 in 2016, the Rome born son of a trumpeter had been nominated no fewer than five times. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences embarrassed that such a talent had not been recognized sooner presented him with a lifetime achievement award in 2007. Morricone s previous nominations were for Days of Heaven (1978), The Mission (1986), The Untouchables (1987), Bugsy (1991) and Malena (2000). Although he is most closely associated in the public mind with Leone s westerns starring Eastwood, Morricone s composition for Roland Joffe s Jesuit drama The Mission is considered by many critics to be his cinematic masterpiece, an epic and eclectic reflection of South America s musical melting pot. Throughout his career, Morricone worked with some of Hollywood s most acclaimed filmmakers as well as arthouse directors. After his collaboration with Leone, he worked with Italian screen legends Federico Fellini and Pier Paolo Pasolini and later with the likes of Pedro Almodovar, Bernardo Bertolucci, Brian De Palma and Oliver Stone.

By ANASTASIA GORELOVA St. Louis Post DispatchST. LOUIS (AP) Veterinary researchers at Mizzou have had such success with a new immunotherapy approach for bone cancer treatment in dogs, the results have now helped secure FDA approval to test the method on human brain cancer patients.In collaboration with the biotech company ELIAS Animal Health, scientists treated 14 dogs with a personalized vaccine made from each dog;s cancer cells, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. They then boosted the animal;s immune response by removing the dog;s own white blood cells, growing them in a lab, and then reinjecting them into the dog to attack the tumors. Early results suggest the treatment allows dogs to live longer than standard care. "It ''s very clear that the approach caused an immune response that extended these dogs ' lives substantially, " said principal investigator Jeffrey Bryan, a professor at the University of Missouri ''s College of Veterinary Medicine.Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer treated by the scientists, is the most common type of bone cancer in dogs. Dr. Rhonda Feinmehl, an expert in veterinary oncology at the Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, said it makes up 85% of bone tumor cases.In large dogs, the tumor often appears in the limbs and grows rapidly and aggressively. Not only does the local bone cancer limit the dog ''s ability to move, but it also quickly spreads to other parts of the body. "By the time we diagnose osteosarcoma, it is often already microscopically spread, " Feinmehl said.
Seeking to facilitate the availability of experimental drugs for severely ill COVID 19 patients, the Union Health Ministry has issued a draft notification for "compassionate use" of any unapproved drug that is in the phase III clinical trial globally.The draft New Drugs and Clinical Trials (Amendment) Rules stipulate the manufacture and import of unapproved drugs based on a prescription by a hospital or medical institution. According to a gazette notification of the draft rules published on June 5, a hospital or medical institution may import the new drug for "compassionate use for the treatment of patients suffering from a life threatening disease or disease causing serious permanent disability or disease requiring therapy for unmet medical need", which has not been permitted in the country, but under Phase III clinical trial (human trial) in the country or abroad, by making an application to the Central Drug Regulator.
Among the many things that writer director Anvita Dutt s Bulbbul gets right, the role of the Thakur s haveli or mansion is particularly impressive. From the moment we see the film s protagonist, the titular Bulbbul (Tripti Dimri) arriving at the old house after her marriage to the eldest thakur scion Indranil (Rahul Bose), it s clear that this haveli, gloomy on the outside and tastefully decorated from the inside, is going to be an important character, almost, in the story.In a crucial scene, we see Bulbbul and Dr Sudip (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) telling the younger thakur Satya (Avinash Tiwary) about one of the good doctor s patients a woman who was clearly getting beaten up by her husband. Every time Dr Sudip s services were required, she would claim to have fallen down the stairs . As Bulbbul notes with a meaningful smile, There s only one house in the village that has stairs , alluding to the haveli. Later, we learn that this mirrors how Dr Sudip came to meet Bulbbul: after Indranil beat her up brutally, he called the doctor to dress her wounds and claimed that she had fallen down the stairs.
Trade boycotts or bans are especially costly when production is organised through global supply chains, as is the case with the pharmaceutical industry. Although India is the third largest producer of finished drugs in the world, it relies significantly on China for supplies of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), the key components in making medicines. An estimated 70 per cent of API requirements of India s pharmaceutical industry are sourced from China. For some drugs, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, this dependence is almost 100 per cent. This import reliance has been fuelled by environmental controls in India and competition with China, which has higher volumes of production and lower costs. Given this, restricting or banning the import of APIs would cause significant disruption to the Indian pharmaceutical industry which had $40 billion in revenues in 2018 19, according to Pharmexcil.Such a prospect is especially of concern to potential patients. A severe contraction of Indian pharmaceutical production and its almost $20 billion worth of annual exports, would affect access to medicines both in India and globally. The impacts would be especially high in low and middle income countries which have become increasingly dependent on affordable medicines supplied by India. In many African countries, in fact, India supplies almost 50 per cent of the medicines in value terms and even higher percentages in terms of volume.
Since the first COVID 19 case emerged in Wuhan in December last year, over 11 million people have tested positive globally while the number of deaths due to the novel coronavirus has crossed 5 lakhs. Doctors have reported that abnormal clotting of blood and cytokine storm are two of the most common reasons behind the death of COVID 19 patients.Studies have concluded that many of the COVID 19 patients admitted to hospitals had increased D dimer levels at the time of admission. Increased D dimer levels indicate an increased risk of abnormal blood clotting.
"This donation delivers on President Donald Trump''s generous offer of these critically needed supplies and supports Pakistan''s urgent response to the pandemic," the U.S. Embassy said in a statement Friday.The national tally of confirmed coronavirus cases in Pakistan, a country of 220 million people, has surpassed 222,000, with nearly 4,600 patients dying since officials detected the outbreak four months ago.
Bardelli s group discovered that KRAS, NRAS and BRAF mutated colorectal cancer patients do not respond to anti EGFR antibodies. His work also led the development of diagnostic tests, based on the pioneering use of liquid biopsies. He showed that the analysis of circulating tumor DNA (liquid biopsies) allows monitoring tumor s evolution and resistance to targeted therapies. The Bardelli s lab was the first to pinpoint the emergence of KRAS NRAS mutations in the blood of patients during EGFR blockade. These discoveries represent the first example of personalized therapies for colorectal cancer patients, and were reported by the Bardelli s group in Nature, Nature Medicine, Cell, Cancer Cell, JAMA, and Lancet Oncology.Overall, Bardelli has authored more than 200 scientific articles of which over 100 as an independent investigator.
”The more portion of the stomach we preserve, the better the quality of life for patients after the surgery, ” it said. ”We have confirmed that excising above one centimeter above the stomach has no difference in safety and recurrence rate. ” When gastric cancer develops, cancer cells can spread along the lymph nodes and blood vessels. Therefore, hospitals have to cut out the cancer affected areas and part of the duodenum where the small intestine begins.
The authors examined data on 10873 patients from 110 hospitals in 25 countries. 7155 patients (65.5%) had visible or gross haematuria while 3155 had (28.9%) had non visible or microscopic haematuria and 614 (5.6%) were referred for a reason other than haematuria. The rate of urinary tract cancer detected in secondary care varied between countries from 4.8% to 72% (median 26%, IQR 11.9 42.0).
