Hyperlipidemia is protective against cancer comorbidities : But statins may the reason!! -Abstract submitted at BCS 2016 [OMG!!]

A research abstract accepted by British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) for BCS conference 2016, shows the “real quality of research and conference.”

“Abstract: HYPERLIPIDAEMIA REDUCES MORTALITY IN BREAST, PROSTATE, LUNG AND BOWEL CANCER

Conclusion: We have demonstrated for the first time that comorbid hyperlipidaemia has a highly protective effect on mortality amongst patients with the four most prevalent cancers in the UK. The underlying reasons for this are yet to be determined but treatment with statins may contribute. This potentially beneficial effect of lipid-lowering medications amongst cancer patients should be further investigated.”

Courtesy: Dr. Anand Srinivasan – “Whole world would appreciate if a famous group provides a conclusion like this. But the author has gone over board in including statin in the conclusion.”

Supporting info on Statins usage |”Statin-Taking Patients With LDL-C of 70–100 mg/dL at Decreased Risk of MACE” #Update

As the controversies regarding the Statin usage grow day by day, Clalit Research Institute, Tel Aviv_Israel has done a population-based study of more than 31,000 statin-taking adults in Israel who had stable ischemic heart disease showed no significant differences in major adverse cardiac events (MACE) between those with LDL-C levels that were between 70 and 100 mg/dL after 1 year of treatment and those with LDL-C <70 mg/dL. However, there was a significantly lower risk for MACE in those with LDL-C of 70 to 100 mg/dL vs those with LDL-C levels of 100 to 130 mg/dL (P<0.001).

Although the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) currently recommends that long-term statin treatment for patients with CAD should target LDL-C levels less than 70 mg/dL, new research suggests that the optimal level is actually a bit higher

Happy Doctors Day | “Do we need to celebrate it?”

Happy Doctors Day

I woke up to this  message from our IMPA Clinical Pharmacology group which made made me to feel weird. I don’t know why it made me to feel so! Then there were bunch of similar messages from various groups, friends and family. Then i started to reply all with this deep thought in my mind: “What have we done to celebrate this Doctor’s day?”

The picture above is Dr.Mohit Naredi, President of Junior Doctors Association-Indore, resident of MYHospital, Indore who was grievously injured after patient’s kin attack him with drip stand. This happened last year.

Clinicians treat and save patients. But for a para-clinical faculty, teaching and training the future doctors are the paramount responsibility vested upon them. If the budding doctors are not taught the basics well, they are definitely going to fumble in therapeutics which eventually leads to poor understanding of patient’s situation. Foundation is most important and teaching needs passion and commitment towards making the students to learn the medical subjects in a enjoyable way. Above all, As quoted by , every doctor needs compassion towards their patients.

Foundation is most important and teaching needs passion and commitment towards making the students to learn the medical subjects in a enjoyable way. Above all, As quoted by Dr.B.M.Hegde, every doctor needs compassion towards their patients.

Various countries celebrate Doctor’s day for various reasons and in India, it was established by the Government of India in 1991 to commemorate the birth of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, a renowned physician, freedom fighter and the first chief minister of West Bengal. Read about his contributions here.


“National doctors day celebration has been marked as the day of respect for entire professional doctors who have made their great efforts in saving the life of patients. Doctors day means a whole day which has been dedicated to the medical profession especially for doctors and physicians to commemorate their efforts and roles. It is a day to say them vote of thanks for their love, affection and priceless care of their patients. Sometimes people get stuck in the wrong hand of irresponsible and unprofessional doctors which becomes the reason of public violence and protests against those doctors. This awareness campaign is the great way of attracting all the doctors and physicians at one place to bring them at one track of responsibility towards the life saving medical profession.”


“National doctors day is being celebrated for years by the government and non-government healthcare organizations in order to get familiar with the doctors contributions. Staff of the healthcare organizations organizes variety of events and activities for the campaign celebration. “Rotary Club of the North Calcutta and North East Calcutta Social & Welfare Organization” organizes big event every year for the grand celebration of the doctors day.

A discussion program is organized to discuss about the various aspects of medical profession such as health check-up, cure, prevention, diagnosis, proper treatment of the disease and so many. Rotational medical services by the doctors are also promoted and encouraged in the community for better and healthy social development. Free medical checkup camps are organized at many health centers and public places by the health care organizations to promote quality medical services without cost among common public.

General screening test camps are also organized to assess the health status, health counseling, health nutrition talks and chronic diseases awareness among poor people and senior citizens. Free blood test, random blood sugar test, ECG, EEG, blood pressure checkup and etc activities are organized to aware people about the priceless roles of doctors in everyone lives.

Some of the activities at the schools and colleges level are also organized for encouraging more youth students toward the dedicated medical profession. Discussion on the medical topics, quiz competitions, sports activities, availing scientific tools to students for the creative knowledge, implementing new and effective educational strategies for making the medical profession strong and more responsible.”


“On the 1st of July, the patients greet their doctors by distributing greeting cards, appreciation cards, Ecards, giving them bunch of flowers or bouquets, greeting messages through the mails and etc. Special meetings, party and dinner are organized at the health centers, hospitals, nursing homes or at homes by the doctors in order to commemorate importance of day and contributions of doctors towards medical profession.”


Now watch this video:

This is just one of the many incidences happening recently in India. With a situation prevailing like this,  the question, everyone has to ponder about is: “Do i need to celebrate Doctor’s day?”
