O primeiro Dia Mundial de Perguntas e Respostas do Câncer de Rim destaca a carga global

O câncer de rim é uma doença silenciosa que está em ascensão. A incidência global de câncer de rim terá um aumento surpreendente de 22% até 2020. As explicações são incompletas, mas incluem fatores de risco como envelhecimento, obesidade, pressão arterial alta e tabagismo.

A falta de respostas é a razão pela qual a International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) [Aliança Internacional de Câncer do Rim] e organizações de câncer de rim em todo o mundo estão marcando o primeiro Dia Mundial de Perguntas e Respostas de Câncer do Rim (World Kidney Cancer Q&A Day). Em 22 de junho, pacientes, cuidadores, profissionais de saúde e organizações locais estarão fazendo perguntas e buscando respostas:

  • O que explica a incidência variada de câncer de rim em todo o mundo? A alta incidência das taxas é observada no norte e leste da Europa, América do Norte e Austrália, com as maiores taxas estimadas na República Tcheca?
  • Como podemos abordar a crescente lacuna nas taxas de mortalidade por câncer de rim entre economias emergentes e desenvolvidas?
  • Como podemos prevenir o câncer de rim, ou detectar mais cedo, quando os pacientes ainda podem ser curados?

“Precisamos de uma colaboração global para o câncer de rim - em pesquisa, conscientização e defesa - porque quando trabalhamos juntos, temos um maior impacto do que quando fazemos sozinhos e podemos gerar mudanças significativas para os pacientes", diz a Dra. Rachel Giles, presidente do IKCC.

Um novo artigo elaborado por especialistas líderes, The Global Burden of Kidney Cancer: A Call to Action (A carga global do câncer de rim, uma chamada para ação) (em revisão) destaca os desafios enfrentados no diagnóstico e manejo da doença.

O IKCC também lançou o Teste de Perguntas e Respostas do Dia Mundial do Câncer de Rim. Disponível em nove idiomas, o teste de sete perguntas avalia o que você sabe e o que precisa saber sobre câncer de rim. Para cada questionário preenchido, US$ 5 serão direcionados para um projeto de pesquisa de alta prioridade que beneficiará pacientes em todo o mundo.

Grande voz, grande causa
Juliet Ibrahim, humanitária e celebridade conhecida em todo o mundo, é a embaixadora global da campanha.

“Assim como a arte, o câncer de rim não conhece fronteiras. Trabalhando juntos – compartilhando nossa experiência e nosso conhecimento - fazemos a diferença para as pessoas afetadas pelo câncer de rim”, disse Juliet. A Juliet Ibrahim Foundation dá esperança para pacientes com câncer do rim em toda a África.

O Dia Mundial de Perguntas e Respostas do Câncer de Rim foi criado pelo IKCC (www.ikcc.org), um órgão mundial de 30 organizações de câncer centradas na melhoria da vida das pessoas afetadas pelo câncer de rim. A campanha é apoiada pela Bristol-Myers Squibb, Novartis, Pfizer, e Ipsen.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
