Deux Filles Distilbène en Cour d’Appel

Verdicts variables pour les deux plaignantes – 1

La cour d’appel a  estimé qu’il ne pouvait être prouvé que le médicament Distilbène® était bien à l’origine de la pathologie de Sophie Meyer, car les pièces fournies étaient insuffisantes. Et ce bien que la plaignante eut “présenté certaines malformations et anomalies décrites dans la littérature médicale comme étant les conséquences d’une exposition in utero au DES”, écrit-elle dans son arrêt.

  • La justice “oblige cette femme à justifier de documents contemporains” de son exposition à la molécule alors qu’elle n’en dispose pas, selon Maitre Martine Verdier. “L’arrêt de la cour d’appel de Paris est une porte ouverte pour ressaisir la Cour de cassation sur le cas de Sophie, afin qu’une règle qui fasse jurisprudence soit enfin établie“, expliquera Martine Verdier à francetv info.

2013 Revolutionary Research on Pancreatic, Ovarian and Lung Cancer Detection

My 3 Cents on Cancer: Jack Andraka at TEDxSanJoseCAWomen

Jack is a fifteen year old freshman in high school. He developed a paper sensor that could detect pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancer in five minutes for as little as 3 cents. He conducted his research at John Hopkins University. This research could change the face of cancer and promote early detection. He has been selected as the Intel 2012 ISEF winner and has won awards at multiple national and international math competitions. Jack is on the national junior whitewater kayaking team and enjoys playing with his dog and folding origami.

  • Jack’s method is 168 times faster, 26000 times cheaper, 400 times more sensitive and has a 90% success rate.
  • In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

BPA, BPS, Endocrine disruptors and Phthalates: from Research to Action, a Matter of Urgency

Human fertility under attack : From research to action on phthalates and endocrine disrupting chemicals

Non-communicable diseases currently represent a leading threat to human health and human development and pose one of the key challenges of the 21st century.

  • Video by RESenvsante, April 10th, 2012, Paris, Assemblée Nationale colloquium on EDCs – focus on phtalates and fertility, starring Shanna Swan
  • Today, endocrine disruptors constitute a key to understanding how prevention can be better applied on those diseases and how their progression can consequently be halted. It is a matter of urgency and we must act immediately by devoting a higher amount of resources to research, by upgrading healthcare practices, by developing regulatory as well as economic tools and providing safer alternatives to endocrine disruptors.

What Doctors don’t know about the Drugs they prescribe…

How Drug Companies mislead Doctors and harm Patients

When a new drug gets tested, the results of the trials should be published for the rest of the medical world — except much of the time, negative or inconclusive findings go unreported, leaving doctors and researchers in the dark. In this impassioned talk, Ben Goldacre explains why these unreported instances of negative data are especially misleading and dangerous.

Bisphenol A explained on Video…

What is BPA and where is it used?

Bisphenol A – or BPA for short – is one of the more contentious chemicals on the block at the moment. Companies making BPA, and the products that contain it, claim that the substance is safe if used sensibly. But others aren’t so sure. RiskBites will be delving more into the science behind BPA risks in later episodes. But before getting into the risks and benefits, it makes sense to talk about what the stuff actually is, and where it is used.
