Here is a quick roundup of the great pieces we’ve been reading lately:
- Men and women are obviously biologically different. Yet, “for decades medicine has worked on the basis that we are fundamentally the same. Remarkably, many of the drugs we commonly use have been trialled almost exclusively on males.” Check out this article from The Times: Why the drugs don’t work for women and what to do about it
- Bob Bradway, Amgen’s CEO, presents how his company is Putting Patients at the Center of Everything [they] Do. And how survivors and self-advocates support others. Their positive attitude is contagious. Very cool.
- A new type of drugs, targeting tumours according to their genetic make-up, rather than where they originate in the body, may soon become available to patients in the UK. The Telegraph explains how this will give hope to thousands of patients in cases which were previously untreatable.
- Comparing Artificial intelligence with Asbestos is taking it too far, I think. Yet, this article has a very good point: “It will take human logic and collaboration to reach meaningful conclusions.”
