1st gene therapy approved in Europe

The European Medicines Agency has for the first time recommended approval of a gene therapy, for the treatment of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency under "exceptional circumstances".

The drug alipogene tiparvovec (Glybera, uniQure) was designated an "orphan medicine" on March 8, 2004, and is recommended for use in a restricted group of adults with familial LPL deficiency who have severe or multiple pancreatitis attacks despite dietary fat restrictions.

LPL deficiency is a rare genetic disease that results from a defect in the gene for LPL, an enzyme that breaks down fats. The patient presents with pancreatitis attacks.

Glybera is made from an adeno–associated viral vector (AAV1) that has been modified so that it carries a gene for LPL but does not replicate. It is injected into a muscle, where it corrects the LPL deficiency by enabling muscle cells to produce LPL.

My Profession My Concern

Aditi Tandon/TNS

New Delhi, July 20

Any MBBS doctor wanting to do ultrasounds will now be required to do an MCI–approved 300–hour course in the basics of ultrasonography. Only MCI–recognised institutions can offer this course and not unrecognised teaching academies, as was the case till now. The government today mandated the new course under the Pre–conception and Pre–natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act 1993, which says any MBBS wanting to do ultrasounds must take six–month training in the area. The Act is however silent on the quality of training and the structure of the institution that can impart such training. Consequently, several private teaching shops have mushroomed and cases of MBBS graduates doing ultrasounds on fake training certificates have come to light.

"We have, for the first time, provided a framework for the six–month course the Act mandates. The 300–hour curriculum has been approved by an expert committee which had MCI members. Private teaching shops can no longer thrive by offering six–month training as was the case," Anuradha Gupta, Additional Secretary, Health, told TNS. MBBS doctors, already practicing ultrasonography on the basis of the old provision in the law, will need to clear a competency test at the time of renewal of their clinic’s registration. "If they pass, we will know they have the skill to do an ultrasound," Gupta said.

The course can only be offered by centres of excellence (AIIMS, JIPMER Puducherry and PGI Chandigarh), all MCI–recognised government and private medical colleges offering PG courses in obstetrics and gynaecology and all National Board of Examination–recognised institutions offering Diplomate of National Board PG certification.

The move will help improve the quality of ultrasonologists across India. In–service government doctors will get priority for the course. The move, officials said, would help government in providing ultrasound facilities down to the community health centre level. At present, such facilities are available only in district hospitals. In another major decision, the Central Supervisory Board, under the PNDT Act, decided to evolve a code of conduct for appropriate district authorities which monitor the law. Chief Medical Officers are the appropriate authorities at district–level. (Contributor: Dr. Harkanwaljit Singh Saini)

Ahmedabad’s green heritage: City has maximum number of aging giant trees

AHMEDABAD: The city is miserably low when it comes to number of trees per person. Surprisingly though, it is home to a huge number of big and old trees. A tree is called big when it has achieved a trunk girth of over 200 cm. The first ever tree count taken up by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has revealed that there are 14,150 trees in its jurisdiction with a girth of about 200 to 250 cm and 6,420 trees of 251 to 300 cm. The count also revealed that there are 2,310 trees which have girth of over 300 cm. The average tree size in Ahmedabad is bigger than all other cities of Gujarat. Of the 6.18 lakh trees in the city, there are 22,880 with a girth of 200 cm and above. It is 3.7 per cent of the total tree count in the city and is much higher than the same figure for Gandinagar, the greenest city in India. In the eight municipal corporations of Gujarat, there are a total of 33,619 trees with girth of over 200 cm. Additional principal chief conservator of forest of Gujarat H S Singh said, "In all eight municipal corporation, only 1.31 per cent of total trees have girth of over 200 cm. A heritage city, Ahmedabad has relatively more old trees than in the others." Certain areas such as Ahmedabad, and its satellite including Bopal, Sanand, and neighbouring Bhal region, are being filled up by concrete structures at the cost of wetlands, natural vegetation and agricultural lands, the official added. On the other hand, the average tree size much lower in Bhavnagar, which has overall higher count. This is due to a large number of small trees (Acacia Senegal) in Victoria Park in that city, said an official of forest department. (Source: The Economic Times, 23 Jul, 2012)

Novel TB regimen shows promise

In a small, proof–of–concept study, the combination was as effective at eliminating Mycobacterium tuberculosis over a 14–day period as standard treatment, according to Andreas Diacon, PhD, of Stellenbosch University in Tygerberg, South Africa, and colleagues. Because two standard first–line TB drugs –– isoniazid (Nydrazid) and rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane) –– were not included, the combination might be useful in drug–resistant TB, the researchers reported at the International AIDS Conference and simultaneously online in The Lancet. The combination included the investigational nitroimidazo–oxazine PA–824, as well as moxifloxacin (Avelox) and pyrazinamide. (Source: Medpage Today)

Can infection cause cancer?

As per Dr. Maurie Markman from Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia, in response to a paper in Lancet Oncology, "Global Burden of Cancers Attributable to Infections in 2008: A Review and Synthetic Analysis", many cancers are linked to infections. The comprehensive review of the 13 million new cases of cancer that occurred worldwide in 2008 analysed data with the specific idea of determining or estimating the percentage of these cases that might have been caused initially by viral infections, bacteria, or parasites. As per the review there are approximately 2 million cases of cancers caused by these varieties of infections worldwide. In certain areas of the world, particularly the less developed areas, a higher percentage of cancer cases were felt to be attributable to such infections –– as many as a third. In North America, approximately 4% of cancers were caused by these infectious diseases.

How can intrauterine adhesions be treated?

Laparoscopy is performed to visualize the uterine surface to guard against perforating (i.e. putting a hole in) the uterus during hysteroscopic lysis of extensive adhesions. Following removal of the adhesions, many surgeons recommend temporarily placing a device, such as a plastic catheter, inside the uterus in an effort to keep the walls of the uterus apart and to prevent adhesions from reforming. Hormonal treatment with estrogens and NSAIDs are frequently prescribed after surgery to lessen the chance of reformation of adhesions. In severe cases, more than one attempt at surgical removal of the adhesions may be necessary.

    An Inspirational Story

(Mr Paramjit Chadha)

The carpenter

Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict. It was the first serious rift in 40 years of farming side–by–side, sharing machinery and trading labour and goods as needed without a hitch. Then the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and it grew into a major difference and finally, it exploded into an exchange of bitter words followed by weeks of silence.

One morning there was a knock on John’s door. He opened it to find a man with a carpenter’s toolbox. "I ‘m looking for a few days’ work," he said. "Perhaps you would have a few small jobs here and there I could help with? Could I help you?"

"Yes," said the older brother. "I do have a job for you. Look across the creek at that farm. That’s my neighbour. In fact, it’s my younger brother! Last week there was a meadow between us. He recently took his bulldozer to the river levee and now there is a creek between us. Well, he may have done this to spite me, but I'll do him one better. See that pile of lumber by the barn? I want you to build me a fence an 8–foot fence –– so I won’t need to see his place or his face anymore."

The carpenter said, "I think I understand the situation. Show me the nails and the post–hole digger and I’ll be able to do a job that pleases you."
The older brother had to go to town, so he helped the carpenter get the materials ready and then he was off for the day. The carpenter worked hard all that day –– measuring, sawing and nailing. About sunset when the farmer returned, the carpenter had just finished his job.

The farmer’s eyes opened wide, his jaw dropped. There was no fence there at all.

It was a bridge… A bridge that stretched from one side of the creek to the other! A fine piece of work, handrails and all! And the neighbour, his younger brother, was coming toward them, his hand outstretched…

"You are quite a fellow to build this bridge after all I’ve said and done.

The two brothers stood at each end of the bridge, and then they met in middle, taking each other’s hand. They turned to see the carpenter hoist his toolbox onto his shoulder.

"No, wait! Stay a few days. I’ve a lot of other projects for you," said the older brother.

"I’d love to stay on," the carpenter said, "but I have many more bridges to build."

Remember this…

God won’t ask what kind of car you drove, but He’ll ask how many people you helped get where they needed to go.
God won’t ask the square footage of your house, but He’ll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
God won’t ask about the clothes you had in your closet, but He’ll ask how many you helped to clothe.
God won’t ask how many friends you had, but He’ll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.
God won’t ask in what neighbourhood you lived, but He’ll ask how you treated your neighbours.
God won’t ask about the colour of your skin, but He’ll ask about the content of your character.
God won’t ask why it took you so long to seek Salvation, but He’ll lovingly take you to your mansion in Heaven, and not to the gates of hell.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr MC Gupta)

What are the guidelines regarding withdrawal of life support measures in a terminally ill person?

Q. What are the guidelines regarding withdrawal of life support measures in a terminally ill person? Please comment on the following two recent events:

a. The daughter of Captain Lakshmi (Indian National Army), requested withdrawal of life support for her mother.

b. Mr. Rajesh Khanna reportedly requested to be sent home for a peaceful death.

Ans.

  • The guidelines regarding withdrawal of life support measures in a terminally ill person are as follows:
    • If he is adult and conscious and of sound mind, he can himself instruct the doctors to withdraw life support measures. Doctors would be bound by such instructions. If they persist with such measures, they would be committing an illegality for which the patient or his LRs can sue the doctor. However, this must be properly documented with, preferably, the LRs/attendants being a witness to such instructions.
    • If he is an adult who has previously authorised another through a so called living will, that another can take a decision, as the patient’s attorney, to instruct the doctors to withdraw life support. Though an ordinary will written even on a scrap of paper is valid, the law about living will for this purpose is not common in India and law has yet to evolve. In order to avoid complications for both the hospital and the patient and the family, it would be advisable, if possible, to have such a will properly prepared and documented in a legal manner.
    • In situations other than the above, the guidelines laid down in Aruna Shanbaug case will apply. In this case, decided in march 2011 by a Supreme Court bench comprising Justice Markandey Katju and Justice Gyan Sudha Misra, the plea for mercy killing of Aruna Shanbaug was dismissed. The Court distinguished between active euthanasia and passive euthanasia and elaborated that active euthanasia is when a lethal injection is given terminating a person’s life, whereas passive euthanasia is when patient’s life support mechanism is withdrawn. The bench held that while active euthanasia is illegal with no law allowing otherwise, passive euthanasia can be held legal albeit only after approval is granted from a high court with the state as a party. The court further laid down that the high court is required to grant or deny approval after consulting a committee of three doctors. The state will also be issued notice in the case. The bench clarified that the judgment will hold good and be applicable in cases of euthanasia until the parliament enacts a law on the same.
  • The fact remains that legal principles aside, it is a practical and everyday problem for private nursing homes as to what to do with patients in coma who are abandoned by the relatives or whose relatives themselves request for withdrawal of life support for the reason that they don’t want to prolong the agony or that the cost of treatment is unaffordable. There is no law under which a court can ask a private hospital to provide free treatment. Even government hospital beds cannot be allowed to be occupied by comatose/vegetative patients when patients needing urgent life- saving treatment are wait listed.
  • In the circumstances, all the world over, the practical solution to the problem is left to the doctors concerned taking the specific circumstances of each case into consideration.
  • As a specific answer to the question posed, the hospital should refer the case to its legal counsel who should guide the hospital and arrange/provide the services on the following lines:
    • Arrange a committee of three doctors to report on the medical aspects of the case that justify passive euthanasia;
    • Advise and facilitate the patient’s NOK to file an urgent writ petition in the High Court with the patient (through his next of kin) being the petitioner and hospital and the government being the parties;
    • The prayer in the writ petition should be:
      • To direct the hospital to accept the request for performing passive euthanasia;
      • To provide an amicus curie/advocate appointed by the court at court expense (in case the petitioner does not have adequate financial means);
      • To direct the government to arrange for transfer of the patient to a free government facility and till this is done, to pay the hospital bill, in case the request for passive euthanasia is not accepted (in case the petitioner does not have adequate financial means).
  • If the daughter of Captain Lakshmi (Indian National Army), requested withdrawal of life support for her mother without her having been appointed as her attorney as described above, such request would be against the principles laid down by the SC.
  • If Mr. Rajesh Khanna requested, while in a sound state of mind, to be sent home for a peaceful death, such request is legally binding on all concerned.

Suicide

The World Health Organization estimates that suicide is the 13th leading cause of death worldwide. The method varies dramatically amongst countries.

  • Over one million people commit suicide every year across the globe.
  • Suicide is derived from a Latin word suicidium, from Sui caedere, "to kill oneself."
  • Suicide is often committed out of despair, or attributed to some underlying mental disorder, which includes depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, alcoholism and drug abuse.
  • Financial difficulties, troubled interpersonal relationships and other undesirable situations play a significant role
  • The leading methods in different regions include hanging, pesticide poisoning, and firearms.
  • In India, 30% of suicides are from pesticides. The use of this method however varies markedly from 4% in Europe to more than 50% in the Pacific region.
  • In the United States, 52% of suicides involve the use of firearms however asphyxiation and poisoning are fairly common as well. Together they comprised about 40% of US suicides.
  • Other methods of suicide include blunt force trauma means jumping from a building or bridge, self, stepping in front of a train, or car collision, for example).
  • Bloodletting means slitting one’s wrist intentional drowning, self–immolation, electrocution, and intentional starvation are other suicide methods.
  • A study found increased rates of suicide following the television news stories regarding suicide.

Older people ‘should exercise to build muscle even into their 80s’

Older people should exercise to build their muscles even into their eighties, according to a review which suggests it will help them with everyday tasks, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India.

Climbing the stairs, housework, walking and even washing was made easier if elderly people worked out two or three times a week, said Chiung–ju Liu of the Department of Occupational Therapy at Indiana University.

People lose muscle as they age, which can make daily chores more difficult. Working out by using small weights or elastic bands can help to rebuild these muscles.

By "walking well", however, you power yourself around all day using muscles in your bottom, midriff and the backs of your thighs. This brings dramatic, sustainable results.
