[Perspectives] Mary Gospodarowicz: focused on oncology's unfinished agenda
Richard Lane | thelancet.com | 2021-06-05
Marie Curie once said: "One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done", and these words have been at the heart of Mary Gospodarowicz's approach to her career in oncology during the past four decades. Gospodarowicz is Professor of Radiation Oncology at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network, and the University of Toronto, Canada. Most of her career has been based at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, including her role as its medical director from 2005 until 2020.

[Correspondence] Patient involvement in regulation: an unvalued imperative
Bruce Campbell, Art Sedrakyan | thelancet.com | 2021-06-05
There is now an imperative for medical regulators to involve patients and the public across the range of their work, in the same way as it has become accepted practice to involve patients in decisions about their medical care, as part of mainstream existentialist philosophy.1 However, patient involvement remains largely unvalued for its influence on decision making about approval of medicines and medical devices, or their withdrawal from use because of safety signals. Regulatory agencies worldwide are grappling with the range and complexity of ways in which patients and the public might be involved in regulation,…

[Correspondence] The CEPI centralised laboratory network: supporting COVID-19 vaccine development
Arun Kumar, Valentina Bernasconi, Mark Manak, Ana Paula de Almeida Aranha, Paul A Kristiansen | thelancet.com | 2021-06-05
With a wide range of COVID-19 vaccine development platforms and extensive variability between laboratory assays, comparison of results for vaccine trials can be challenging.1 The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) has established a global network of laboratories to centralise testing and enable comparison of immunological responses generated by COVID-19 vaccines.

Roman Protasevich, Casualty Of The Ryanair Incident In Belarus, Is Spilling The Beans
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2021-06-05
'Western' media, as well as other regime change activist claim that Protasevich must have been tortured to say what he says. However, aside from light handcuff marks at his wrists there is no evidence of that. Protasevich had previously been wounded when he fought in the fascist Ukrainian Azov battalion against the Donbas secessionists. He is a tough guy who will not be impressed by handcuffs which, by the way, police everywhere use for good reasons.

We fully agree with Jane Speight and colleagues' emphasis on the need to assess and manage diabetes-specific distress. In our Commission,1 we addressed, in no fewer than ten places, the possible causative and amplifying effects of psychosocial stress on diabetes self-management and disease control, and highlighted many of the contributing factors, such as rapid rural–urban migration, living conditions, social disparity, economics, work, family, and interpersonal relationships.Acknowledging the importance of diabetes-specific distress arising from worries about the condition's nature and quality of care, the…

A 35-year-old woman presented to our emergency room with a 3-day history of dizziness, nausea, and fatigue. The patient said she had been diagnosed with a brain tumour 2 years earlier; at that time, she reported having diplopia as well as dizziness and fatigue. A stereotactic tumour biopsy was considered, but not done because she made a full recovery with high-dose steroid treatment.

Jane Speight, Norbert Hermanns, Dominic Ehrmann, PsychoSocial Aspects of Diabetes Study Group of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes | thelancet.com | 2021-06-05
We commend the Lancet Commission on diabetes1 but the section on comorbidities and mental health is limited to psychiatric comorbidities. Mental wellbeing is not simply the absence of mental disorders.2 Diabetes-specific distress is the negative emotional impact of living with and managing diabetes, a sign of coping difficulties. Diabetes-specific distress is very common, affecting around a third of people with diabetes.3 We suggest that ignoring diabetes-specific distress contributes to the suboptimal outcomes highlighted by the Commission.
