BIA-ALCL: Swissmedic lamentiert und kann nicht entscheiden

09. April 2019 – Seit einiger Zeit beschäftigt das Brustimplantat-assoziierte anaplastisches Großzell-Lymphom (BIA-ALCL) Patientinnen, Mediziner der Schönheits- und/oder der Rekonstriktions-Chirugie, und die Zulassungsbehörden weltweit.

So hat die französische Gesundheitsbehörde ANSM (l’Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament et des produits de santé) am 04.

Brustimplantat-assoziiertes anaplastisches Großzell-Lymphom: Ein Preis der Schönheit?

27. Februar, 2019 – Das Brustimplantat-assoziierte anaplastisches Großzell-Lymphom (BIA-ALCL), welches den Preis für einige Frauen mit Brustimplantaten darstellt, hat in letzter Zeit zunehmend an Aufmerksamkeit gewonnen. Vielleicht weniger in der Öffentlichkeit und/oder bei Frauen/Patientinnen, jedoch sicher bei verschiedenen Zulassungsbehörden.

Die Pille: Erhöhen gewisse Kontrazeptiva das Risiko für potenziell lebensbedrohende VTEs?

24. Dezember 2018 – Ja, das tun sie. Gemäss dem Bundesamt für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte (BfArM) sind kombinierte hormonale Kontrazeptiva (KHK), welche die Wirkstoffe Dienogest und Ethinylestradiol enthalten,  sowohl in Deutschland wie auch in vielen anderen Ländern zugelassen zur oralen hormonalen Kontrazeption und zur Behandlung von mittelschwerer Akne nach Versagen geeigneter topischer Therapien oder einer oralen Antibiotikabehandlung bei Frauen,

  • New type of taste cell discovered in taste buds August 13, 2020
    Our mouths may be home to a newly discovered set of multi-tasking taste cells that—unlike most known taste cells, which detect individual tastes—are capable of detecting sour, sweet, bitter and umami stimuli. A research team led by Kathryn Medler at the University at Buffalo reports this discovery in a study published 13th August in PLOS […]
  • Researchers discover genetic link to predict positive response to immunotherapy in patient August 13, 2020
    A Singapore team led by clinician-scientists and researchers from the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) discovered a genetic link to better predict treatment response for relapsed/refractory patients with natural-killer T-cell lymphoma (NKTCL), a highly aggressive form of blood cancer. The team performed whole-genome sequencing, to identify mutation in PD-L1 gene as a reliable biomarker to […]
  • Evolution and everyday stress have led to disproportionate suffering among women August 13, 2020
    We're 100% behind knowledge-based research, but sometimes you really do have to question evolution!
  • A cancer mystery more than 40 years old is solved thanks to epigenetics August 12, 2020
    Before the first oncogene mutations were discovered in human cancer in the early 1980s, the 1970s provided the first data suggesting alterations in the genetic material of tumors. In this context, the prestigious journal Nature published in 1975 the existence of a specific alteration in the transformed cell: an RNA responsible for carrying an amino […]
  • Combining genetic information with EMRs to pinpoint childhood epilepsies August 11, 2020
    A team of researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) affiliated with the CHOP Epilepsy Neurogenetics Initiative (ENGIN) further bridged the gap between genomic information and clinical outcome data by systematically linking genetic information with electronic medical records, focusing on how genetic neurological disorders in children develop over time. The findings were published today in […]
  • Employers reject transgender people August 13, 2020
    Employers in Sweden more often reject job applications from transgender people -- especially in male-dominated occupations. Moreover, transgender people face discrimination from two different grounds for discrimination. This is according to a study from Linköping University that was recently published in the journal Labour Economics.
  • How a protein stops cells from attacking their own DNA August 13, 2020
    Scientists at EPFL have demonstrated the mechanism that allows cells to fight off viral DNA without triggering an immune response against their own genetic material.
  • Global deaths due to smokeless tobacco are up by a third, according to new study August 13, 2020
    The number of deaths globally due to smokeless tobacco has gone up by a third in 7 years to an estimated 350,000 people, a new study suggests.
  • A watershed moment for US water quality August 13, 2020
    A new federal rule that determines how the Clean Water Act is implemented leaves millions of miles of streams and acres of wetlands unprotected based on selective interpretation of case law and a distortion of scientific evidence, researchers say in a new publication.
  • Study: Medical marijuana associated with fewer hospitalizations for individuals with SCD August 13, 2020
    Individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD) who receive medical marijuana to treat pain may require fewer visits to the hospital, according to a new study in Blood Advances. Adults with SCD who requested and obtained medical marijuana were admitted to the hospital less frequently than those who did not obtain it.
