New Vaccine Could Be The Cure For Heroin Addiction.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #HealthSkillet #HealthNews #UK #Vaccine #Cure #HeroinAddiction #RhesusMonkeys #ScrippsResearchInstitute #HumanTrials

The heroin epidemic just may finally have the answer it has been searching to find for years. If you’ve been following the process, a vaccine was invented a few years ago. It was tried on rhesus monkeys and it appears to have done very well. The vaccine just might be available for humans soon.

How does a vaccine help with heroin addiction? It actually blocks the heroin. That means the vaccine will keep the user from getting high. So, they won’t bang anymore heroin if it’s not going to do anything. That could eventually cure an addict.

They’ll still have the stuff going through them though. Could it lead to overdoses since the user might be inclined to do more heroin if they can’t get high? I’m sure this and other questions are concerns that researchers have to face.

But they feel good about their vaccine. The research is the product of the Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in which Kim Janda is the study leader.

“This validates our previous rodent data and positions our vaccine in a favorable light for anticipated clinical evaluation,” said Janda. “We believe this vaccine candidate will prove safe for human trials.”

Heroin

There are other studies for different drugs like fentanyl that is responsible for so many deaths these days. That would be a great drug to beat with so many overdoses that are in the news every day. But will a vaccine be the answer?

It certainly seems possible. The addict has to want it first, which I believe there are many addicts out there who want to quit. They just don’t have the ability. Once they start seeing the effects in action, they can use their resources to buy drugs as resources to get off of drugs. It’s definitely worth a shot that could save someone’s life one day.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #ITVNews #London #UK #SportsNews #WorldChampionship2017 #VomitingBug  #IrishHurdlerThomasBarr #IsaacMakwala

According to ITV news online, a number of athletes have been forced to pull out of events at the London 2017 World Championships after being struck down with gastroenteritis.

Botswana’s Isaac Makwala, a gold medal hopeful, had to withdraw from the 200m heats on Monday night after reportedly suffering food poisoning.

Irish hurdler Thomas Barr was also forced to pull out of his semi-finals after being struck down with the vomiting bug.

“I’m gutted…my whole year has been focused on the World Championships,” he said.

“Not being able to go out and compete…is beyond disappointing.”

Organisers of the World Championships confirmed other athletes staying at the same official hotel had also fallen ill.

A statement from London 2017 read: “There have been a number of cases of gastroenteritis reported by team members residing within one of the official team hotels for the World Championships.

“Those affected have been supported by both team and LOC (local organising committee) medical staff, in addition we have been working with Public Health England to ensure the situation is managed and contained.

“As a result, further advice and guidelines have been issued to team doctors and support staff – standard procedure for such an occurrence where a number of teams are occupying championship accommodation.”

Experts Have Called For Doctors To Stop Handing Out Antibiotics “Like Sweets”

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #ITVNews #HealthNews #Antibiotics #OverPrescription #AntibioticsResistantBugs #Superbugs #DavidCameron

Over-prescription is leading to resistance to the drugs that are used to fight infection, causing the rising threat of so-called ‘superbugs’.

Antibiotic resistant bugs have been described by doctors as potentially a bigger threat to humans than cancer.

The superbug threat: Everything you need to know

Lord Jim O’Neill published a global action plan – commissioned by Prime Minister David Cameron in 2014 – which sets out a series of measures aiming to tackle the threat:

  • Reducing the unnecessary use of antimicrobial drugs in healthcare settings
  • Monitoring and reducing superfluous use of the drugs in farming
  • Quicker progress to be made on banning or restricting antibiotics that are vital for human health from being used in animals
  • Better use of diagnostic tools to help reduce unnecessary use of the drugs
  • A global public awareness campaign about the problem of drug resistance
  • Increasing the supply of new antibiotic drugs

One of his proposals suggests that big pharmaceutical companies should “play or pay” – meaning they either join the search to hunt for new antibiotics or be forced to pay a fine. But those who do and find successful new treatments should be rewarded handsomely.

My review not only makes it clear how big a threat AMR is to the world, with a potential 10 million people dying each year by 2050, but also now sets out a workable blueprint for bold, global action to tackle this challenge. The actions that I’m setting out today are ambitious in their scope – but this is a problem which it is well within our grasp to solve if we take action now.

– LORD O’NEILL

The report points out that the process of determining whether or not a patient needs antimicrobial drugs, especially antibiotics, has not changed for decades.

“Rapid diagnostics would be able to reduce use of antibiotics by letting doctors know if a patient has an infection and if this infection is viral or bacterial, meaning that antibiotics will only be given out to patients who need them,” the report states.

Lord O’Neill, said that antibiotics are treated “like sweets” as he called on governments across the world’s richest countries to mandate that by 2020 antibiotics could only be prescribed following a rapid diagnostic test, wherever one exists.

He said that introducing this mandate will lead to advances in technology and diagnostic tools by opening a new market for them.

Health leaders from around the world have raised serious concerns about the growing resistance to antibiotics.

Lord O’Neill likened the problem to “facing a growing enemy with a largely depleted armoury”.

Without antibiotics, many key medical procedures such as surgeries and chemotherapy could become too dangerous to perform.

Projections suggest that if nothing is done to control the rise of antibiotic resistant bugs, there will be 10 million deaths each year by 2050.

Failure to act will also cost the world over $100 trillion in lost output between 2014 and 2050, the review suggests.

WHO “We Expect The Zika Virus To Spread To Europe By The Summer”.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #HealthNew #ITVNews #ZikaVirusSpread #WorldHealthOrganisation #Europe #UK

The likelihood of local Zika transmission if no preventative action is taken is “moderate” in 18 countries, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said.

While the UK is deemed to be “low” risk, global health chiefs have urged people to be prepared.

Officials will also continue to be alert to detect imported cases early and provide public health advice to travellers.

WHO said the risk is higher where the mosquito that carries the virus is present such as the island of Madeira and the north-eastern coast of the Black Sea.

Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO regional director for Europe, said: “With this risk assessment, we at WHO want to inform and target preparedness work in each European country based on its level of risk.

“We call particularly on countries at higher risk to strengthen their national capacities and prioritise the activities that will prevent a large Zika outbreak.”

The Zika virus, which is known to cause birth defects, is currently present in 58 countries.

The most recent figures show that 23 UK travellers have been infected after visiting affected regions.

Local Councils Have Been Given Powers To Issue Fixed Penalty Notices For Fly-Tipping.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #UK  #LocalCouncils #FlyTipping #PenaltyNotices  #FlyTipping

Councils have been given new powers to tackle Britain’s growing fly-tipping problem.

From this month, fixed penalty notices can be issued for small-scale offences such as dumping pieces of broken furniture, old televisions or mattresses.

Unsightly and anti-social, fly-tipping has become a menace to local councils and their budgets – and the Local Government Association is hopeful the new rules will help address the problem.

Councillor Martin Tett said: “Not only does fly-tipping create an eyesore for residents, it is also a serious public health risk, creating pollution and attracting rats and other vermin.”

Sky News followed Daniel and Liam, who work as neighbourhood safety officers, as they rooted through rubbish in an attempt to find the person who dumped bin bags in the road.

Soon enough, they found post with a name and address – allowing them to track the potential offender and issue a fine of anywhere between £150 and £400.

Government figures suggest councils are dealing with around 900,000 fly-tipping incidents annually, an increase of almost 6% between 2013/14 and 2014/15.

It is also expensive to clean up, costing nearly £50m in England alone.

“That’s all taxpayers’ money,” says Stuart Collins, a councillor for Croydon in south London.

“That could all be spent on more worthwhile things like schools and local services that people depend on.

“Our streets aren’t refuse sites, it’s all about people acting responsibly and if they acted responsibly we could use that money in a better way.”

Critics will ask whether the new powers go far enough, and may call for tougher penalties.

But the LGA says it is a step in the right direction, as the fines are likely to discourage minor offences.

To tackle big-scale dumping, often caused by an underground business of rubbish collection, a more aggressive clean-up may be needed.

Google Has Been Given Access To Over A Million UK NHS Patient Files To Build A New Medical App.

#WeGotItCovered #WeGotYourBack #BreakingNews #Google #UK #HealthNews #DataSharing #UKNHSPatients #MedicalRecords #Project #NewMedicalApp

Tech-giant Google has been given access to as many as 1.6 million UK patient files as part of a data-sharing agreement with the NHS , it has been claimed.

 

Details of the agreement, revealed in the New Scientist, reportedly show Google-owned artificial intelligence company DeepMind has permission to access healthcare data on more than a million Royal Free NHS Trust patients in London as part of an ongoing project to build a new medical app.

The arrangement is part of a project to build an app to alert doctors to patients at risk from kidney injuries but concerns have been raised by privacy campaigners over how much data is being made available.

  • How much data are we talking about?

According to a document seen by New Scientist “a wide range of healthcare data” on some 1.6 million patients who pass through London’s Royal Free NHS Trust run hospitals – Barnet, Chase Farm and Royal Free – each year are being made available to DeepMind.

Patient data from the last five years is also allegedly accessible to the Google-owned company too.

  • What type of data is involved?

The data reportedly includes information about people who are “HIV-positive, for instance, as well as details of drug overdoses and abortions”.

  • Why is data being made available to DeepMind?

According to the Royal Free London it approached DeepMind “with the aim of developing an app that improves the detection of acute kidney injury (AKI)” and patient data needed to be made available to do this.

The hospital trust said the app will improve the detection of AKI by immediately reviewing blood test results for signs of deterioration and sending an alert and the results to the most appropriate clinician.

Google said that since “there is no separate dataset for people with kidney conditions” it needed to be given access to all of the data in order to run the app effectively.

  • Is the shared patient data safe?

The Royal Free London has made assurances that shared patient data is safe and that it provides DeepMind with NHS patient data “in accordance with strict information governance rules and for the purpose of direct clinical care only”.

A statement on its website states: “No patient-identifiable data is shared with DeepMind. All information sent to and processed by DeepMind is encrypted and is only decrypted once returned to the clinician’s device.”

  • Why are privacy campaigners concerned?

Phil Booth, coordinator of patient data protection group medConfidential, has questionned the extent of the data being made available.

He said: “To ensure patient confidence, properly run projects require transparency on what is being done, and why. That is to protect patients from the confusion about what this data will be used for.

“Even now, we have no idea why Google needed so many sensitive details of every treatment for every patient in the hospital, covering over half a decade.”

  • What assurances have Google made?

Google has made assurances that the data collected is encrypted and “will not be used commercially” and that Google staff will be unable to personally identify patients.

DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman added: “This data will only ever be used for the purposes of improving healthcare and will never be linked with Google accounts or products.”

  • Can patients opt-out?

Yes.

The Royal Free London said: “With all information sharing agreements with non-NHS organisations, patients can opt out of any data-sharing system that the Royal Free London uses by contacting the trust’s data protection officer.”
