New NICE Guidance: More People to Be Given Dye to Highlight Brain Tumours to Surgeons

 

 

 

|| July 11: 2018 || ά. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence:NICE has issued new Guidance in which it has said that the chemical dye, which can assist neuro-surgeons in the successful removal of a brain tumour should be used in initial surgery. Patients take five-amino levulinic acid:5-ALA, known as, the pink drink, prior to surgery and as a result tumour cells glow pink under ultra violet light. A surgeon using a non-standard fluorescence-detecting microscope is better able to identify which areas of the brain are cancerous and which are healthy.

The late Tessa Jowell, who passed away in May, urged the government to make 5-ALA available across the NHS in one of her final speeches to the House of Lords. The Prime Minister Mrs Theresa May announced in May £40 million of government funding topped up by £25 million from Cancer Research UK for the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission to stimulate innovative new research and clinical practice to boost outcomes of people diagnosed with brain tumours.

Each of England’s 27 neuro-surgical units is expected to have an average of around 55 patients requiring 5-ALA per year. This is likely to cost the NHS between £01-05 million a year. An estimated 11,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year in the UK and about a third of these would benefit from this new technology.

Symptoms of brain tumours are varied but could include headaches, changes in vision, seizures, nausea, drowsiness or impairment of normal brain function. The new NICE guideline makes recommendations about diagnosis, monitoring and treatment, as well as, the information and support, that should be offered to patients.

These include people with malignant brain tumours, gliomas and metastases but, also, for those with more long term problematic tumours, such as, meningiomas.

Dr Tom Roques, a Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Chair of the NICE Committee, said, "People with brain tumours will see great benefits when these NICE guidelines are implemented.

Going through cancer treatment is a very difficult time in a person’s life and we want patients to have the highest quality care possible. The roll out of 5-ALA will see more patients treated to a gold standard level of care and will help delay the recurrence of brain tumours.”

Professor Mark Baker, Director for the Centre for Guidelines at NICE, said, “The evidence examined by the committee shows using 5-ALA will improve tumour removal. This guidance and the roll out of 5-ALA, which, we hope, to see implemented in a timely manner at those units, who don’t currently have access to it, will greatly improve patient experience.”

Ms Cally Palmer, NHS England’s National Cancer Director, said, “NHS England is firmly committed to making 5-ALA universally available for all eligible patients in neuroscience centres across the country.

Plans to support and fund the roll out of the dye to improve the precision surgery for high grade glioma patients are already well in place and this should more people get treated this way going forwards.” :::ω.

|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.

To My England

My England takes off her land embroidered dress
And goes swimming wild in style soft and swift

She touches round all corners in watery craft 
And is all sure and glow a gentle rock that holds

My England is bound in voyage-vision’s terms
Abound she spells the multiple in a single rose

She is a poem written by green moss on white cliffs
Serenaded by creamy summer’s sun or April’s showers

My England weaves magic beyond man’s limitations
Where we find living is as much as letting others live

She is a cuddled up baby in water-mother’s womb
And she speaks to me in moonsphorescent a tongue

My England meets and greets our mother with joy
In her palms she holds an all abound arcadia wrapped


My England takes off her land embroidered dress
And goes swimming wild in style soft and swift

We publish this Poem, Titled, To My England, in honour and tribute to the Memories of Labour MP Jo Cox who had been stabbed and shot dead on June 16, 2016: This poem is from Neverbridge Stone Roses: Munayem Mayenin, London, United Kingdom: ISBN: 978-1-4477-1626-6: First Published: February 2008: Second Edition April 2010: Third Edition: May 2011. We invite all readers of The Humanion from the entire of the British Isles to Read To My United Kingdom, instead of To My England and send all the lights that you are made of towards Jo Cox's two young children and her husband and her entire family and friends.

Bright Star

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art-- 
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death.

Bright Star : John Keats

Home is not where the heart is 
Nor is it where things are kept 
A home is what skins the soul 
Without it a human is non-person 
Incomplete suffers slowly dying
