Thank you for joining me in another episode of TNFro Medical Minute.

This week’s episode is the first in this month’s series Breast Cancer Awareness.

   Please leave comments on this episode Breast Health checklist: 

  • Are you over 40 or what is your family history?
  • When was your last mammogram?


 I will also discuss the use of AI to predict the development of breast cancer in suspicious mammogram, at least that is what MIT thinks. MIT News AI usage to predict breast cancer.

And the Advancement of Treatment available with cure a reality. The current treatments have advanced further than old school Ribivarin and TNF inhibitors current which are pretty nonspecific and full of side effects. Now, there are specific Hepatitis C antivirals that are specific and have a narrow profile of side effects they stop the spread of the disease. And in cool but only partially understood mechanism of action drugs like Harvoni, may keep the virus from copying itself and prevent the errors in replications that contribute to viral resistance. Best chance of cure is using medications like Epclusa which is a combination therapy itself,Sofosbuvir-velpatasvir , with Ribivarin. I am wondering if we have an algorithm to predict response base on genetic markers and several other factors… Now  that’s pretty baller!!
