NEJM 2017 Notable

LineA LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEFLine
Dear Reader,
2017 was the year of big data. One study took data from 61 million Americans and looked at the association between air pollution and mortality. The trial found that for every increase of 10 μg per cubic meter in fine particulate matter (PM2.5), there was an associated 7.3% increase in all-cause mortality. These findings stress the need for tighter regulation of air-pollutant levels, and make the point that we still have time to make a difference.
Another study analyzed data from 68.5 million people from 195 countries to find the trends in the prevalence of overweight and obesity among children and adults between 1980 and 2015. This study found that the global obesity epidemic is worsening in most parts of the world, but — as with the air pollution study — our future is not immutable.
As the medical information published in NEJM is regularly used in daily practice, we ensure each paper published meets exacting standards for editorial quality, clinical relevance, and impact on patient outcomes. Among all papers published in 2017, this “most notable” collection was selected by the editors as being the most meaningful in improving medical practice and patient care. We hope that you will take valuable insights from these articles.
Sincerely,
Jeffrey M. Drazen, M.D.

Scientific Understanding

Artist's impression of a supermassive black hole

Is There a Limit to Scientific Understanding?Artist's impression of a supermassive black hole


Albert Einstein said that the “most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.” He was right to be astonished. Human brains evolved to be adaptable, but our underlying neural architecture has barely changed since our ancestors roamed the savannah and coped with the challenges that life on it presented. It’s surely remarkable that these brains have allowed us to make sense of the quantum and the cosmos, notions far removed from the “commonsense,” everyday world in which we evolved.
But I think science will hit the buffers at some point. There are two reasons why this might happen. The optimistic one is that we clean up and codify certain areas (such as atomic physics) to the point that there’s no more to say. A second, more worrying possibility is that we’ll reach the limits of what our brains can grasp. There might be concepts, crucial to a full understanding of physical reality, that we aren’t aware of, any more than a monkey comprehends Darwinism or meteorology. Some insights might have to await a post-human intelligence.

Promoção e Proteção da Saúde do Aduilto e Idoso - UFRGS

Anteontem, no dia 12, fomos convidados pela gentil coordenadora - Professora Roberta Rigo Dalla Corte para mais um jantar de fim de ano da Disciplina PPSIII ou PPSAI. Estavam presentes também os Professores Sérgio Goldani e João José Oliveira Bianchini que deram sustentação à disciplina depois de minha aposentadoria, em anos difíceis nos quais ficaram sozinhos mantendo as atividades e as idéias que orientaram sua criação.  A trinta anos em 30 de junho de 1987 eu recebera a incumbência de coordenar a Disciplina Acompanhamento de Família III (MED 703) que estava fadada a desaparecer, momento em que surgiu a proposição de substituir as três disciplinas por novas com designação e objetivos diferentes. A nossa passou a se chamar Promoção e Proteção da Saúde com ênfase noAdulto, incluíndo o Idoso ou PPSIII (MED 114).
Presentes também coordenadores anteriores Professores. Sérgio Haussen e Emílio H Moriguchi (atual chefe do Departamento de Medicina Interna do Hospital de Clínicas). Também Professor Luciano Goldani (atual vice-diretor da Faculdade de Medicina). Como atuais membros da Disciplina Professores Andréa Carla Bauer Abauer, Rafael Mendonça Chakr e  Jonas Alex Morales Saute.
A propósito pretendo resgatar mais algumas histórias da Disciplina e colocar à disposição de quem possa interessar.

PRESS RELEASE

New and Expanded Risk Factors for Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer's Disease


– Verbal and sensory skills, hospitalization may predict future cognitive function –

LONDON, July 17, 2017 — Detection of dementia at the earliest stages has become a worldwide scientific priority because drug treatments, prevention strategies and other interventions will likely be more effective very early in the disease process, before extensive brain damage has occurred. Research results reported at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC) 2017 provide clues about associations between cognitive status in older people and several behavior and lifestyle factors, including verbal skill, hearing, and hospitalization.

"It is essential that we learn more about factors that indicate or impact risk for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, especially lifestyle factors that we can change or treat," said Maria C. Carrillo, PhD, Alzheimer's Association Chief Science Officer. "The Alzheimer's Association is committed to advancing scientific research to identify simple and accessible ways to spot the signs of cognitive decline."

Censo Nacional sobre Diabete (30 anos)

Parabéns ao AMICOR Reginaldo Hollanda Albuquerque e aos demais Diabetólogos.
Reginaldo escreveu o que segue e eu posso repassar os arquivos a quem estiver interessado.
Prezados(as) colegas: ao realizar hoje uma faxina no meu computador encontrei os docs básicos dos belíssimos  e importantes trabalhos que realizamos entre 1986-1988.  

Me emocionei ao reler os dois projetos básicos: o do Censo que foi um sucesso e a proposta do Plano Nacional de Atendimento ao diabético que não saiu do papel. Desejo-lhes e um feliz 2018 e que possamos nos encontrar no decorrer do ano para uma comemoração desta data. Quem sabe possamos continuar batendo nas mesmas teclas. Permanecem  atuais e fundamentais.

Breast Cancer Risk and contraceptives

All Hormonal Birth Control Is Linked to Increased Breast Cancer Risk, Study Shows

Here's what you need to know.
MIKE MCRAE
8 DEC 2017
New research has added to the growing pile of evidence that taking hormonal contraceptives increases your relative risk of developing breast cancer.
While these findings fall in line with what we already know, the study focussed mostly on formulations and delivery methods that have been developed since the mid-1990s - meaning that even newer contraceptives on the market are still adding to the problem./.../

Genes and Behavior

Do Genes Direct Our Behavior? [Video]

Studying the acute sense of smell may provide some answers
What do we do when we’re hungry? How do we react when people gather around us? Where do we go when we want to be alone? Humans have so many complex behaviors, yet researchers think many of them have developed directly from the ways animals act and react. Whether that is true can be revealed by studying how genes direct biological functions, and how those functions result in action.
Cori Bargmann, a neurobiologist at Rockefeller University, is hot on this trail.

primordial ‘soup’

Straining a strange soup for lessons on our Universe

Scientists have used collisions between protons to investigate strange hadrons, whose formation may provide deeper insights into the origins of our Universe, according to a study published in Nature Physics.
A few billionths of a second after the Big Bang, an extremely hot and dense primordial ‘soup’ formed from freely roaming quarks and gluons, the fundamental building blocks of the Universe. By studying the properties of this soup, known as a quark-gluon plasma, scientists can gain a better understanding into the origins of our Universe.
Using data from the ALICE detector at the Large Hadron Collider, an international team of physicists, including researchers from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, have observed for the first time the enhanced formation of strange hadrons, particles that contain at least one strange quark, which are indicative of the formation of the quark-gluon plasma, opening up a new way to study the origins of our Universe.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantations are now routine at a number of high-end hospitals around the world.
