Why aren’t we curing the world’s most curable diseases?

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Ivermetcin is the same drug that is in Heartguard, which is sold to prevent heartworms in dogs. I had my big dog, C-Boy, on Heartguard until I had to have him put down, earlier this year due to a large tumor on his back leg, his mobility problems of getting up and now, and his advanced age. I was surprised to learn from this article that ivermetcin prevents river blindness, although I knew from the packs that it prevented hookworms, heartworms, roundworms, pin worms, and whipworms. If this is the drug that was a penny a pill, the drug companies sure charge a lot for Heartguard, as it was close to a hundred dollars when I bought it for C-Boy! The drug companies in this country are greedy! I don’t know why the president doesn’t do something about it! Once upon a time, the world suffered.In 1987, 20 million people across the world were plagued by a debilitating, painful and potentially blinding disease called river blindness. This parasitic infection caused pain, discomfort, severe itching, skin irritation and, ultimately, irreversible blindness, leaving men, women and children across Africa unable to work, care for their families and lead normal lives.But the recent discovery of a drug called ivermectin was about to change it all. Not only was ivermectin cheap and easily synthesized, but it was also a powerful cure: With only one dose a year, it was possible to completely rid patients of disease and even halt the progression toward blindness. In short, ivermectin was a miracle drug – one whose discovery would lead to Satoshi Omura and William Campbell winning the Nobel Prize in medicine in 2015.There was no time to be wasted. Recognizing that the populations most at risk of disease were those least able to afford treatment, Merck & Co. pledged to join the fight to end river blindness. Thirty years ago this October, the pharmaceutical company vowed that it would immediately begin distributing the drug free of charge, to any country that requested it, “for as long as needed.” It was the final piece of the puzzle: an effective drug for a tragic and completely preventable disease. And we all lived happily ever after.Only… we didn’t.Merck’s generous offer should have been the final chapter of a brief story with an upbeat ending – the eradication of a tragic and preventable disease that had plagued humankind for centuries. But such was not the case: 30 years later, in 2017, river blindness rages on across the world, afflicting as many as 37 million people, 270,000 of whom have been left permanently blind.Neglected tropical diseases like river blindness stand in stark contrast to those like tuberculosis, which is estimated to affect a third of the world’s population due to the increasing prevalence of highly antibiotic resistant strains.In short, tuberculosis has stuck around because medicine has run out of drugs with which to treat it – which is why, as a molecular biologist, I am researching new ways we can finally defeat this stubborn disease.But this only increases the urgency for river blindness and other widespread diseases for which, unlike tuberculosis, science does have effective cures – and inexpensive ones at that. Even with all the necessary tools, the world has failed to cure the curable.Turning a blind eyeOne-and-a-half billion people across the world suffer from neglected tropical diseases, a group of infectious diseases that prevail in tropical and subtropical countries lacking good health care infrastructure and medical resources. These diseases typically do not kill immediately but instead blind and disable, leading to terrible suffering, creating losses of capital, worker productivity and economic growth.Thirteen diseases are universally recognized as neglected tropical diseases. At least eight of these diseases, including river blindness, already have inexpensive, safe and effective treatments or interventions.For less than 50 cents per person, the United States could cure a fifth of the world’s population of these severely debilitating and unnecessary diseases. In spite of this, the United States allocates nearly as little to treating and preventing neglected tropical diseases around the world as it does to drugs for erectile dysfunction.The forgotten feversConsider dracunculiasis, or Guinea worm infection, which occurs when people consume water contaminated with fleas carrying parasitic worms. The worms mature and mate inside the human body, where they can grow to be two to three feet long.A girl in Juba, South Sudan, has a Guinea worm extracted from her leg. Reuters/Skye WheelerAdult females eventually emerge from painful blisters at the extremities to lay eggs in stagnant water, where offspring will infect water fleas and begin the cycle anew.No drug exists that can cure Guinea worm, but because of a cohort of mostly privately funded public health efforts, the number of Guinea worm infections worldwide has dropped from 3.5 million in the 1980s to only 25 in 2016.Funding from the U.S. and other countries could help in the final push to eradication, and some argue that funding from the individual countries themselves could help.Another example, albeit more grim, is the group of soil-transmitted helminths, or worms. Roundworm, hookworm and whipworm collectively affect over a billion people across the world, all in the poorest areas of the poorest countries. All these worms infect the human intestines and can cause severe iron deficiency, leading to increased mortality in pregnant women, infants and children. Furthermore, hookworm infections in children retard growth and mental development, leading to absences from school and dramatically reduced labor productivity.However, soil-transmitted helminths can be expelled from the body with a single pill, each of which costs only one penny. What’s more, preventing infection in the first place is completely achievable through increased awareness and sanitation.The purse strings of nationalismWithout drastic increases in funding and public awareness, the plight of people affected by the neglected tropical diseases is unlikely to budge anytime soon.The U.S. spends over US$8,000 per person per year on health expenditures, compared to countries in Africa that spend around $10. While this opens the door to a critique on efficiency, it’s far more indicative of the disparities in health resources.Less than 20 percent of the world’s population lives in some of the most developed and economically high-functioning countries, including the United States – and nearly 90 percent of the world’s total financial resources are devoted to the citizens of these nations. And yet, low-income countries bear the majority of the world’s infectious disease burden. In short, the rest of the world does not suffer the same diseases the United States does, and Americans are doing little to nothing about it.At first glance, this is not so surprising. As a whole, the world suffers – but how many neglected tropical diseases currently penetrate American borders?Some experts predict that eliminating or controlling the neglected tropical diseases in sub-Saharan Africa alone, which shoulders over 40 percent of the global burden of neglected tropical diseases, could save the world $52 billion and over 100 million years of life otherwise lost to disease.Conversely, some global health experts estimate that for every dollar spent on neglected tropical disease control, we get back over $50 in increased economic productivity. By increasing awareness and funding of neglected tropical disease eradication, the United States will be making one of the best global investments possible. The rest of the world has waited long enough.Katherine Wu is a PhD candidate studying tuberculosis at Harvard University.

WHO Public Health Prize goes to Cuba

first_imgCuban medical professionals mobilized for New Orleans, 2005.At its 70th World Assembly in Geneva on May 26, the World Health Organization unanimously bestowed its Public Health award on Cuba’s Henry Reeve Brigade.The brigade won wide recognition and even favorable corporate news headlines in 2014 for providing West Africa with 250 frontline fighters against the Ebola epidemic, which had threatened to spread across the globe. Dr. Felix Báez Sarría, member of the brigade, accepted the presentation with Roberto Morales, Cuba’s minister of public health. After surviving an Ebola infection, Dr. Báez Sarría voluntarily returned to the West African frontlines.Fidel Castro, the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, formed the Henry Reeve Brigade on Sept. 19, 2005. At that time, nearly 2,000 Cuban medical professionals had been assembled to assist the people, most of them Black, who were stranded on New Orleans rooftops and packed into the sports coliseum because of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.But President George Bush rejected Cuba’s offer.Dr. Roberto Morales Ojeda, Minister of Health of Cuba, and Dr. Felix Baez, Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade, receive World Health Organization Prize for Public Health.These volunteers then became the Henry Reeve Brigade, named for a young internationalist combatant from the U.S. who died in 1876 fighting for Cuban independence from Spain. Shunned by the Bush administration, the Cuban doctors preparing to help the people of New Orleans were instead deployed to help earthquake survivors in Pakistan, high in the Himalayan mountains.According to a May 26 Prensa Latina report, the 7,254 Cuban medical professionals honored had assisted in emergency situations in 19 countries, including twice each in Haiti and Chile. “They attended to more than 3.5 million people and saved the lives of about 80,000 patients, according to estimates.”U.S. spends on military, Cuba on healthThe U.S., the richest imperialist country in the world, has a military budget that far exceeds the other top nine military spenders combined. President Donald Trump has just arranged to sell the ­Saudi kingdom, which has been slaughtering people in Yemen, $110 billion in new military hardware. Yet the budget being sent to Congress slashes domestic and international spending on health care, which impacts heavily on women.Spending for HIV/AIDS and malaria is being reduced. Cuban doctors have pointed out that deaths from malaria in Africa far exceed those from Ebola, but Ebola became the international priority when it was feared that the epidemic would spread beyond Africa.The U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary, Dr. Tom Price, spoke at the WHO assembly, saying the U.S. government was committed to “a cooperative, transparent and effective international response to outbreaks of infectious disease. These threats do not respect borders between countries, and can spread rapidly to endanger people anywhere around the globe.”However, Dr. Price is an advocate of dismantling the Affordable Care Act, thus denying health care to as many as 23 million U.S. residents. The U.S. is the only industrialized country without a national health system.By contrast, Dr. Morales Ojeda of Cuba told the assembly’s plenary session on May 24: “Cuba supports the strengthening of systems geared toward achieving universal health coverage, recognizing that health is a fundamental human right and at the center of public policies for sustainable development. … We have 493,000 health care sector workers and over 50,000 collaborators offering services in 63 countries.”Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine also trains doctors from underserved communities around the world — including U.S. inner cities and rural areas — so they can return home to serve the people.Cuba’s international health solidarity is a reflection of its internal commitment. Providing health care through a centralized, socialist, planned system has resulted in health statistics equal to or exceeding those in the U.S.Dr. Morales Ojeda reported that by the end of 2016, life expectancy at birth in Cuba was 78.45 years. Cuba has an immunization program that protects against 13 diseases. It produces most of the vaccines used, providing 98 percent of the population with coverage.In 2015, Cuba became the first country in the world to officially eliminate mother- to child transmission of HIV and syphilis.“‘The foundations for the National Health System in Cuba were drawn up in 1959, the driving force behind which was the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz,” Morales Ojeda told the assembly.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Week two of ‘Don’t Orchestrate Apartheid’

first_imgPicket of concert to protest Israel’s murder of Palestinians.For the second time, demonstrators gathered outside the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia on April 12 to denounce plans by the city’s philharmonic orchestra to tour and perform in Israel this June. This time, people attending an evening concert were greeted with musicians outside playing protest songs while carrying a 40-foot-long scroll showing pictures, with the names and ages, of 31 Palestinians murdered by Israeli snipers just since March 30.The Philadelphia Don’t Orchestrate Apartheid (PDOA) campaign is calling on the musicians to stop legitimizing Israeli oppression and apartheid against Palestinians. They see the planned tour as part of Brand Israel, the Israeli government’s propaganda strategy to use international artists and athletes to draw attention away from their oppression of Indigenous Palestinians.The planned tour is especially abhorrent in light of Israeli snipers intentionally murdering and wounding thousands of unarmed Palestinian demonstrators taking part in the Great Return marches in Gaza. “For the Philly orchestra to participate in a foreign government’s propaganda campaign is not okay, particularly when Israel is committing war crimes as we speak,” said PDOA spokesperson Susan Abulhawa.Other speakers at the demonstration included Abdul-Aliy Muhammad with the Black and Brown Workers Cooperative, Phil Gregory with Workers World Party, University of the Arts student Stephen Davies, Mike Wilson from Philly REAL Justice, and Karima Saab with Philly Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.Ted Kelly, who played guitar and sang Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War,” described performing at the Kimmel Center as a young violinist. Kelly noted that the planned trip to Israel would tarnish the image of the city’s music community. “I was 17 when I performed here — the same age as some of those murdered last week in Gaza.” The rally, which included a candlelight vigil, ended with the reading of the names of the Gaza martyrs.In an indication that PDOA’s campaign is being felt, a day after an April 6 demonstration that denounced the orchestra’s planned meeting with Israeli Minister of Culture and Sports Miri Regev, she was dropped from the itinerary. Regev has made blatantly racist and offensive comments about African asylum seekers, as well as Palestinians.However, a plan for orchestra members to tour an Israeli military base has been added to the orchestra’s schedule. This move is equally disgusting, considering the Israeli Defense Forces’ mass-scale, intentional shootings of unarmed Palestinians in Gaza.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Family recalls moment fast-moving avalanche swept over their truck

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The Goleman family was driving home from a Sunday ski trip in Colorado when they saw an avalanche barreling down the surrounding mountains toward them. Shaune Goleman said he considered hitting the breaks on his truck or speeding ahead, but the highway was icy and there were cars both in front and behind his. So he told his wife and daughter to hang on. “Right before the impact, I said, ‘Guys, there’s nothing I can do, just hold onto something,’” Shaune Goleman told ABC News in an interview that aired Wednesday on Good Morning America.“I took my foot off the gas, just tried to focus on the road in front of me and tried myself to stay on the road until the impact hit,” he said. His wife, Tram Goleman, told ABC News their daughter, Kiera, who was sitting in the backseat, was the first to spot the fast-moving avalanche. “The moment I saw it, I thought, ‘Oh no,’” Tram Goleman said. “‘Oh no, this is it.’” Within seconds, the avalanche plowed onto Interstate 70 in the Ten Mile Canyon area near the town of Frisco, some 72 miles west of Denver. A thick curtain of snow swept across the windshield of the Goleman’s truck, creating white-out conditions and causing the vehicle to shift sideways off the road. “That’s when I started thinking, ‘This could have us buried here,’” Shaune Goleman told ABC News, recalling the “sheer force” of the snow slide and its “loud” rumbling. The Colorado Avalanche Information Center reported the avalanche was likely a category 3, capable of destroying a home or a car. No one was seriously injured. The Goleman family was unharmed and their truck was not damaged. The vehicle was engulfed in mounds of heavy snow but they were able to escape through the sunroof. “I don’t see how you could see it as anything other than miraculous that we survived the way we did,” Shaune Goleman said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Sally strengthens to a hurricane as Paulette slams Bermuda

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A series of storms is moving through the Atlantic, marking the first time in almost 50 years there are five tropical cyclones simultaneously.A tropical wave is over the Gulf of Mexico, while Hurricane Sally is getting closer to making landfall in the Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, Hurricane Paulette and Tropical Storms Rene, Teddy and Vicky are out further in the Atlantic Ocean.The Gulf Coast is on alert for Hurricane Sally Monday, which strengthened to a hurricane mid-morning Monday with winds of 85 mph. As of 12 pm ET, the storm is about 135 east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River.A hurricane warning has been issued from Morgan City, Louisiana, to the Mississippi and Alabama border as well as Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas, including metropolitan New Orleans. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has issued a state of emergency, saying “bad weather is nothing to take lightly.”The latest path takes Sally just near the mouth of the Mississippi River sometime Tuesday morning as a Category 1 hurricane but, as of Monday morning, it’s hard to say if it will make landfall there.The storm is expected to slow down and move toward the Mississippi coastline on Tuesday afternoon, and then, possibly, make landfall. This could all change depending on how much it slows down and its turn to the north.Storm surge still remains a big threat even though it will likely be only a Category 1 storm as it makes landfall. Because of its slow motion, more water could pile up in the bays and inlets along the Gulf Coast.Storm surge warning is in effect for Port Fourchon, Louisiana, to the Alabama/Florida border, Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas and Lake Borgne, as well as Mobile Bay.Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has deployed the Texas A&M Task Force 1 to Louisiana at the request of FEMA in preparation for Sally.Flooding from rainfall is another major threat with Sally because of its slow motion, and some areas could see 15 to 20 inches of rain in the next several days with locally some areas seeing more than 20 inches.Elsewhere, Hurricane Paulette hit Bermuda and is moving away from the island as of mid-morning Monday. Strong winds and torrential rain is still impacting the island.The hurricane is expected to head east and not make further landfall.Elsewhere in the tropics, there is a new tropical storm, Teddy.Teddy is forecast to become a major hurricane by this weekend as it moves in the general direction of Bermuda, but it is too early to say if Bermuda will get hit again.Additionally, Tropical Storm Vicky formed in the eastern Atlantic, becoming the 20th named storm of the 2020 hurricane season. That storm is currently in open ocean and not threatening any major landmass.Vicky is the earliest 20th named storm on record. The previous record for reaching 20 named storms in a hurricane season was in 2005 — on Oct. 5.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
