17% increase in electrical fires

first_img– Fire Chief advises safe use of electricityWith a 17 per cent rise in electrical fires documented, the Guyana Fire Service (GFS) is advising safer use ofFire Chief Marlon Gentleelectricity, according to the Government Information Agency (GINA).GINA quoted Chief Fire Officer Marlon Gentle as saying that 135 external electrical fires have been reported this year compared to 115 for the same period last year.He asserted that most of these fires are observed to be stirring within the newly established villages, including Diamond (East Bank Demerara), Parfait Harmonie (West Bank Demerara) and Cummings Lodge (East Coast Demerara).“We’re still at the stage where persons are using drop cords or two or three households sharing the same power which is somewhat illegal also,” Gentle highlighted.The Fire Chief noted that electrical fires not only cause destruction to buildings but can result in the loss of lives through electrocution, thus emphasis is being placed on the need to use electricity safely.“If you need to use electricity, use it correctly, use it properly. Have a hired certified electrician to do your electrical installations,” Gentle advised.Though there has been an increase in electrical fires, the GFS reported a six per cent reduction in malevolent locations of fires and a 10 per cent decline in buildings being affected by fires.However, documentation shows an increase of “fire calls” totalling 1405 for the year but according to the Fire Service, this was due to the “dry spell” period endured by Guyana recently, where grass fires and bush fires erupted at various locations in the country.Additionally, there has also been an increase in “crank calls” to the Fire Service where Gentle explained the difficulty in detaining these callers because of the use of mobile phones. Nevertheless, it was stressed that falsely reporting a fire is a criminal offence.last_img read more

New radiomic signature offers predictive score for efficacy of immunotherapy in patients

first_img Source:https://www.gustaveroussy.fr/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Aug 27 2018A study published in The Lancet Oncology establishes for the first time that artificial intelligence can process medical images to extract biological and clinical information. By designing an algorithm and developing it to analyze CT scan images, medical researchers at Gustave Roussy, CentraleSupélec, Inserm, Paris-Sud University and TheraPanacea (spin-off from CentraleSupélec specializing in artificial intelligence in oncology-radiotherapy and precision medicine) have created a so-called radiomic signature. This signature defines the level of lymphocyte infiltration of a tumor and provides a predictive score for the efficacy of immunotherapy in the patient.In the future, physicians might thus be able to use imaging to identify biological phenomena in a tumor located in any part of the body without having to perform a biopsy.Up to now, no marker can accurately identify those patients who will respond to anti-PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy in a situation where only 15 to 30% of patients do respond to such treatment. It is known that the richer the tumor environment is immunologically (presence of lymphocytes) the greater the chance that immunotherapy will be effective, so the researchers have tried to characterize this environment using imaging and correlate this with the patients’ clinical response. Such is the objective of the radiomic signature designed and validated in the study published in The Lancet Oncology.In this retrospective study, the radiomic signature was captured, developed and validated in 500 patients with solid tumors (all sites) from four independent cohorts. It was validated genomically, histologically and clinically, making it particularly robust.Using an approach based on machine learning, the team first taught the algorithm to use relevant information extracted from CT scans of patients participating in the MOSCATO study, which also held tumor genome data. Thus, based solely on images, the algorithm learned to predict what the genome might have revealed about the tumor immune infiltrate, in particular with respect to the presence of cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CD8) in the tumor, and it established a radiomic signature.Related StoriesAI technique helps produce high quality CT images at lower dosagesUsing artificial intelligence to identify socially isolated prostate cancer patientsMachine learning identifies bugs that spread Chagas diseaseThis signature was tested and validated in other cohorts including that of TCGA (The Cancer Genome Atlas) thus showing that imaging could predict a biological phenomenon, providing an estimation of the degree of immune infiltration of a tumor.Then, to test the applicability of this signature in a real situation and correlate it to the efficacy of immunotherapy, it was evaluated using CT scans performed before the start of treatment in patients participating in 5 phase I trials of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy. It was found that the patients in whom immunotherapy was effective at 3 and 6 months had higher radiomic scores as did those with better overall survival.The next clinical study will assess the signature both retrospectively and prospectively, will use larger numbers of patients and will stratify them according to cancer type in order to refine the signature.This will also employ more sophisticated automatic learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to predict patient response to immunotherapy. To that end, the researchers are intending to integrate data from imaging, molecular biology and tissue analysis. This is the objective of the collaboration between Gustave Roussy, Inserm, Université Paris-Sud, CentraleSupélec and TheraPanacea to identify those patients who are the most likely to respond to treatment, thus improving the efficacy/cost ratio of the treatment.last_img read more
