This policy paper will focus on minimizing infection of multi-patient lenses used in the clinical setting. Multi-patient use trial contact lens Trial contact lens permitted to be used on more than one person. Scope of the Problem Infection from a contact lens can occur by single or multiple microbial agents including bacterial, fungal, viral, parasitic or amoebic, or other transmissible origins. Each has different avenues and barriers to a lens, and its survivability can depend on the lens material (soft hydrogel lenses, gas permeable plastics, and variations in polymers from different manufacturers). Transmission of infection can occur in the tears, lids, lashes, cornea, and deeper layers of the eye, depending on the nature of the infector and where patients are most susceptible and vulnerable to infection. Left untreated, infections can cause compromised tissue, discomfort, light sensitivity, visual changes, scarring, and even permanent loss of vision. Diagnosis and treatment of infections from contact lenses should be swift and specific for the offending agent, for the best visual and ocular outcomes. Because this paper will focus on reusable contact lenses in the clinical setting, the emphasis will be on preventing vision and eye health compromise, among patients requiring a trial contact lens fit, from infecting agents on various trial lens materials. Offending Agents: Bacterial, Viral, Fungal, Parasitic/Amoebae and Other (Prion) Bacterial Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is becoming increasingly opportunistic, adapting and resisting some antibiotics. It is found on skin, soil, water, and most man-made Page | 1 October 2018 environments around the world and is citrate (acid), catalase (enzymatic) and oxidase (electron transfer) positive. These cytokines or chemokines recruit white blood cells, predominantly polymorphonuclear leukocytes, to the infection so that they can phagocytose and kill the P. Bacterial adherence to the epithelial surface occurs due to molecular interactions between bacterial surface proteins and protein receptors on the cell surfaces. Surface hydrophobicity of the contact lens has been found to enhance bacterial adhesion. Staphylococcus aureus is a gram-positive, round-shaped bacteria that is common in and on the human body (most commonly in the nose). It is catalase and nitrate positive and a facultative anaerobe (can grow without oxygen). The virus is usually transmitted through oral secretions or sores or via shared objects. Adenovirus is known to have over 50 species and most commonly cause upper and lower respiratory tract infections. Several trials are underway for the treatment of adenovirus, but the treatment toxicities are Page | 2 October 2018 usually more burdensome than letting the disease run its course. These patients may present with a range of asymptomatic infection to severe immunodeficiency and life-threatening infections, diseases, and cancers. Although the risk of transmission is low via tears and contact lenses, clinicians must be aware of the risk from opportunistic pathogens and the patient’s own increased risk of corneal infection with contact lens wear. Fungal Fusarium (Aspergillus and Candida species) are the most common fungal infections found in the eye. They are commonly known as molds and grow in environments of high-carbon contents such as sugar concentrations. The most common types of pathogen Aspergillus appear in sinus infections, causing fever, cough, and breathing problems, especially in those with auto-compromised conditions. When they enter the eye via surgery, trauma, or other lesions, they can cause endophthalmitis, resulting in severe eye pain and vision loss. Aspergillus endophthalmitis requires aggressive treatment with amphotericin B, voriconazole, caspofugin, and/or corticosteroids. Infections can occur in healthy individuals and those with auto-compromised conditions. Normally occurring bacteria digest Candida; so those taking antibiotics are at a higher risk for infection. Candida can spread via the blood to other organs, and in the eye can cause irritation, discharge, light sensitivity, and vision loss.

Lozano, ‘Deep brain stimulation for the treatment of Alzheimer disease and dementias’ (2013) 80(S28) World Neurosurgery e21–S28. It could happen to any one of us and, according to some researchers, would happen to everyone if they lived long enough. Consequently, this is a disease that ‘belongs’ to everyone, either by a iction or the sharing of a familial or community burden. Low cost–bene t ratio and justice are only two of the reasons why research into narrowly tailored therapeutic interventions is problematic when the burden of disease is so substantial. Yet even these highly compelling reasons do not justify abandoning such research in all instances. These reasons do suggest that if collective impact is to be prioritised in any meaningful way, some scrutiny should attend the 43 Tejas Sankar, M. The type of scrutiny needed at this phase could pertain to the claims made and the orientation of the research. This is knowledge that could serve the entire neurological research community and support the study of multiple neurological diseases. The problem arises when research goals and therapeutic goals are con ated in the presentation of both avenues. Even the neurophysiological e ect that it has been reported to have has been minimal and variable and its 44 impact on cognitive function even smaller and short-lived. Buried here is the dilemma arising when research that produces knowledge that can be used in further research on the development of therapies with no clear distinction between a goal of generalisable knowl edge versus a therapeutic e ect. But, of course, this is easier said than done, and is even more so in the context of a disease for which people are desperate for any type of disease-altering e ect. In essence, it would require, rst, an examination of the burden of disease and an assessment of the e ect the contemplated intervention would have if it were to prove e ective. This is not merely or even principally a question of how many people su er from a particular disease, but rather a call to deliberate regard of the overarching policy implications of certain research strategies. Policymakers and regulators have long recognised the importance of protecting research for diseases that a ict a relatively small population. This inquiry is driven by prin ciples of justice and solidarity that translate into shared goals of health and well-being. And, as articulated by Donna Dickenson, this includes a sense of shared burden and address –‘We Medicine’. A ‘We Medicine’ approach would scrutinise therapeutic research and would put forth questions regarding availability, accessibility, adequacy of infrastructure and availability of expertise. More di cult to analyse through the lens of collective versus indivi dual approaches is the phenomenon of early detection. A screening programme of some sort would need to become routine for healthy vibrant individuals at the prime of their functional lives. But if, in the future, the e ectiveness of a new drug is proven, but only if taken at a stage in the disease progression detectable by one of the technology-intensive early detection methods currently available, it is di cult to make a case that such an intervention should not be pursued, even if the centrality of early detection makes the treatment unavailable 132 robin pierce to a majority of patients. This would seem to leave us with little choice but to settle for a largely individualised approach to a widely dispersed burden. If early detection is essential, research should prioritise low cost, low-tech methods of detection that can be widely accessed. A neurodegenerative disease that requires consider able care and that is ultimately fatal exerts a great toll on individual patients and on family and caregivers. Yet, despite billions of dollars invested in research, no treatment or cure has been found. Consequently, the search for anything that might prove e ective in arresting this disease garners interest and support. The commitment to widely available inter ventions that would be accessible to the patient community as broadly as possible must be vigorously pursued. For the research enterprise to emerge with a narrowly tailored and inaccessible intervention would be a modest success, at best, in the face of the millions su ering from this dreaded a iction. Undoubtedly, what a commitment to ‘We Medicine’ looks like when there is no cure is complex. In a landscape barren of e ective treatment options, a certain degree of patience and exibility seems to be required. Nevertheless, regard for the collective burden would advise some priority for interventions that can be ‘up scaled’ to meet the challenge that faces communities worldwide. Admittedly, there is little pro t in the promotion of modi able lifestyle risk behaviours. Ideally, a lost and found o ce reconnects people with the objects they might lose in the course of their journey. To achieve the purpose somebody has to nd the lost object – it must be handed in at the o ce, catalogued, and thus be made available for retrieval. Like 1 Simmel’s famous gure of ‘the stranger’, they are products of moder nity’s complex forms of social organisation and mobility. Simmel notes that a ‘stranger’ unites what is far away in a social sense with that which is near in a physical sense, and that the ‘stranger’ is both an outsider to a social group, while concomitantly being granted a social position – that of stranger – thanks to the group. Sometimes what is ‘lost’ was never meant to be retrieved; it was lost on purpose, and sometimes it is retrieved by others than the original owner. The passage from being lost to being found can rede ne an object and make it into something 2 else for somebody else. Even when returned to the original owner, an object can acquire a new meaning and signi cance after having been lost. This chapter is about being lost and found in new places of intense tra c: the digital infrastructure for health data. It is about the passage from individual data to population data, where the interests of indivi duals are lost, as it were, and how these data can be used to create 1 G. Hetherington, ‘Secondhandedness: consumption, disposal, and absent presence’ (2004) 22 Environment and Planning D: Society and Spaces 157–73. Health data can operate as ‘strangers’ in the sense that users of data can experience physical nearness to data subjects despite social distance. Sometimes a researcher will know things about an indi vidual that not even close relatives would know, but still not know the individual as an actual person. As data change hands, they potentially change meaning and function, much like the stu in the lost and found o ce. Health data always relate in some way to individuals and, in the end, the various uses of this data are supposed to bene t individuals, one way or another. Bene ts are never guaranteed, however, and the routes to potential bene t are many and not always easily understood. As laid out in the introduction to this book, Dickenson suggests a distinction between We Medicine and Me Medicine to interrogate 3 contemporary developments in healthcare. With We Medicine, Dickenson refers to the publicly organised delivery of healthcare that takes solidarity as its primary starting point, while Me Medicine begins in the individual and transforms collective challenges to individual oppor tunities and risks. Using this distinction, this chapter explores how the ongoing data intensi cation relates to this spectrum of Me Medicine and We Medicine. The Nordic healthcare systems deliver universal access and they are primarily nanced through taxes. In the following discussion of infrastructures for data, I will take most of my examples from one Nordic country, Denmark, where public collection and use of 3 D. Thanks to the use of personal identity numbers in all encounters with public services, Danish health data can be com bined with data on socio-economic and educational status from employ 5 ers and tax authorities. The other Nordic countries have similar 6 elaborate register infrastructures, but Denmark has taken what can be seen as a more radical approach to research facilitation than the other 7 Nordic countries by allowing data to be used without consent. The remarkable opportunities for population-based research in Denmark have regularly been discussed in, for example, the journal 8 Science, describing the whole country as a ‘cohort study’. Ersboll, ‘Danish population-based registers for public health and health-related welfare research: Introduction to the supplement’ (2011) 39 (Suppl 7) Scandinavian Journal of Public Health 8–10; L. Ersboll, ‘When the entire population is the sample: strengths and limitations in register-based epidemiology’ (2014) 29(8) European Journal of Epidemiology 551–8.
Contraceptive patch: the patch releases hormones estrogen and progesterone through the skin into the blood circulation gastritis gallbladder removal order discount pantoprazole. One patch is effective for a week; there should be one week break after every 3 weeks diet of gastritis proven pantoprazole 20mg, in which you usually have your period gastritis diet zinc discount 20mg pantoprazole visa. Normal preferable areas for attaching the patch are buttock gastritis diet öâĺňű cheap 40 mg pantoprazole with mastercard, stomach, upper back or upper arm. Potential adverse effects from contraceptive patches are breast tenderness, headache, nausea or mood swings. It is also not recommended for women who have contraindications to hormonal contraception. Implant: this is a small, flexible, plastic tube (rod) of 40mm length which is inserted under the skin of the upper arm by a trained professional and lasts for 3 years. The tube releases progesterone to prevent ovulation thus thickens the cervical walls and thinner the womb lining. It can be done in two ways, either by using an emergency contraceptive pill or with a doctor inserting a copper coil into the uterus (Merch Sharp& Dohme Corp. Emergency contraceptive pills: Emergency contraceptive pills are also known as morning-after pills. It takes time for pregnancy to happen and be up to 6 days for the sperm and egg to meet after the intercourse. Hence, emergency contraception pills work by keeping woman’s ovary from releasing an egg for longer than usual. Condoms, spermicides, diaphragm, cervical cap are barrier methods (American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, 2014). It must be removed before the erection ends so the sperm can leak out and must not be reused. The female condom is a thin, strong plastic layer which is placed inside the vagina to prevent eggs and sperms from meeting. Spermicides: Spermicides are vaginal creams, foams, films, suppositories and sponges. They prevent pregnancy by forming a chemical barrier that either kills sperm or paralyzes them. However, spermicides should be used together with other 16 contraceptives to increase the effectiveness of contraception. Diaphragm: Diaphragm is a soft, cup-shaped contraceptive that fits in the palm of the hand, made from thin rubber (plastic or silicone). It fits inside the vagina of the woman and prevents the sperm from passing through the cervix. Before the intercourse, the woman should place it into the vaginal fornix, at the mouth of the womb, the cup side up. It can be reused, needs to be washed after each use and keep undamaged for the next use. There should always be spermicides accompanied with the diaphragm so that the contraceptive effectiveness is sufficient. Cervical cap: A cervical cap is a small, bowl-shaped device that fits over the woman’s cervix and can be removed by a strap. A woman uses cervical cap by putting spermicide inside the bowl and grooves around the outside of the cap then inserts it into the vagina. After intercourse, the cap should be left in the vagina for at least 6 hours but no longer than 48 hours. Sterilization: this is the most extreme method of contraception as it is considered as irreversible and is the only contraception methods controlled by law in some countries. It is also important to know that even sterilization is not guaranteed 100% contraceptive reliability. Male sterilization (vasectomy): Male sterilization or vasectomy is performed on a man to permanently keep him from being able to get a woman pregnant. After the local anesthesia is given, health care provider will make tiny incisions on the scrotum and the vas deferens are then cut, tied or blocked. After the vasectomy, a man will still produce semen (fluid that comes out of his penis when he has sex); it takes about 3 months to clear the sperm out of the system. A man also should still be using other birth control until his physician tells him there is no longer sperm in his semen. There might be surgery to reverse a vasectomy but it is normally considered a permanent procedure. The man can also freeze his sperm in case of future use before the procedure is given. It is considered a permanent form of birth control, but major surgery can sometimes restore the ability to get pregnant. Tubal ligation can also be done right after giving birth baby through a small cut in the navel. Tubal ligation can be very useful for the long run as it is permanent birth control with immediate effect. Women with tubal ligation can still be sexually active but require no daily attention for contraception. Breastfeeding, especially continuous breastfeeding inhibits the release of hormones that activate the release of an egg-ovulation. Since the effectiveness of this method depends on the exclusive breastfeeding, therefore if the mother is separated from the baby more than a few hours, she cannot expect a high level of contraception protection. Withdrawal method (coitus interruptus): Withdrawal method or coitus interruptus or pull out method, is the term used to describe the action of withdrawing the penis from the vagina and away from a woman’s external genitals before ejaculation to prevent sperm from reaching the vagina. This method requires much self-control and is not even considered as having a reliable effectiveness of birth control. Fertility awareness methods (natural family planning or periodic abstinence: this method is based on monitoring fertile days in menstrual cycle. Couple using this method to prevent pregnancy must avoid unprotected vaginal sex during the most fertile days by abstaining or using condoms. Fertility awareness methods are also for those who want to be pregnant as it requires keeping track of the menstrual cycle consistently. It is also predicted that the number of cases will grow dramatically due to social, demographic and migratory trends. The burden is mostly placed in developing countries, whereas developed nations also face the hard time to control it as a prevalence of non-curable viral infections, trends in sexual behavior and increased travel opportunities hindrance the management of these diseases. It is a common and curable infection in which the bacteria attack the cells of mucous membranes. The most common way of infection of Chlamydia is from an infected person to a partner through certain sexual activities such as anal or vaginal sex. Oral sex is believed to be less likely for Chlamydia to transmit (American Sexual Health Association, 2016 b). Chlamydia can be asymptomatic; in case there are symptoms, it can take weeks to appear. Even though there can be no symptoms of Chlamydia, the reproductive system still can be damaged as it can lead to infertility in women by causing pelvic infection. The most common symptoms of Chlamydia include abnormal vaginal discharge, burning sensation when urinating, discharge from penis, pain and swelling in one or both testicles, bleeding and rectal pains. A pregnant woman can also transmit Chlamydia to the child (Center of Disease Control and Prevention, 2016 a). Gonorrhea: Gonorrhea is caused by bacteria Neisseria gonorrhea that can be spread from person to person via vaginal, oral and anal sex. Like Chlamydia, Gonorrhea can be asymptomatic or only show minor symptoms in the initial phase (U. Women with Gonorrhea might suffer from painful or burning sensation while urinating, increase vaginal discharge and vaginal bleed between periods. Untreated Gonorrhea in women can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which can later cause complications of infertility, ectopic pregnancy, scar tissues in fallopian tubes and long-term abdominal pain. Among men, symptoms can be yellowish-white discharge from the penis, burning or pain when urinating, urinating more often than usual and pain or swelling of the testicles (American Sexual Health Association, 2016 c). Treatment of Gonorrhea can be difficult due to high antimicrobial resistance (Center of Disease Control and Prevention, 2015 a). Genital warts can be asymptomatic; however, depends on the size and location of warts that can cause pain and pruritus.
