Serious Disparities in Outcomes for Lung Cancer Patients According to Where You Live in Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 7 dicembre 2018

The World Health Organization estimates 387,913 Europeans will die of lung cancer in 2018.1 The preliminary findings from a new study by the Economist Intelligence Unit comparing 13 countries show that governments across Europe are responding in very different ways to the disease. Countries with better outcomes seem to have effective prevention policies in place and prioritize timely access to new, innovative treatments. Initial research from the study, which will run into early 2019 with in-depth country research and workshops, will be presented today by the Economist Intelligence Unit at the European Cancer Forum in Brussels, which is hosted by MSD. The audience of policy-makers, academics, healthcare professionals, industry, and patient representatives, will provide a first sounding-board for the study findings, and help focus the next phase of research. The EIU will be looking to understand whether countries are advancing, innovating and seizing the opportunities to save lives.Already, the study points to seven key findings from the 13 countries:
1. For the past 15 years the number of new lung cancer cases has been highest in the Netherlands and lowest in Sweden. The number of deaths caused by lung cancer is highest in Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Greece – but the numbers have gone down significantly in the past 15 years. Finland has made great progress, and now has the lowest death rate. All other countries have made little to no progress in the past 15 years.
2. We have seen an average increase in the percentage of patients who are still alive 5 years after diagnosis, from 12 percent to only 17 percent over 15 years. The average survival rate for all cancers combined is 50-60 percent.3 Austria, Sweden and Norway have the highest survival rates for lung cancer, with the lowest survival rates occurring in Romania, Finland and the United Kingdom.
3. Lung cancer is a strategic priority in those countries with (lung) cancer control plans and guidelines: Sweden and France score best here, while Finland has some catching up to do.
4. Since smoking is the primary risk factor for lung cancer, with around 80 percent of lung cancers linked to smoking, public health programs around tobacco control and smoking cessation, including regulation of e-cigarettes, are particularly important. The study shows that Finland and Norway lead in this area, while Romania has litte in place.
5. In terms of treatment, the study notes whether patients are getting treatment, tumour testing is available and reimbursed, and new, innovative medicines are reimbursed. Of the four most commonly used biomarkers for lung cancer, testing for all four is only reimbursed in a minority of countries.
6. Only Sweden and Poland have a specific lung cancer plan/section of the National Cancer Control Plan (NCCP), and only four countries (Austria, France, Romania and Greece) have updated their NCCP in the last five years.
7. Only half of the countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland,Spain, UK) have started or are involved in a trial to investigate whether or how screening could be introduced.

What world do you want to live in?

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 1 settembre 2018

Summer in the Northern Hemisphere this year has been brutal. In Japan, 65 people died in one week, as temperatures rose to over 40°C in metropolitan areas. In China, 22 counties and cities recorded their hottest July on record. Wildfires have been raging across Europe, from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean, and across America, including the largest ever recorded in California, where the Mendocino Complex Fire has engulfed more than 120,000 hectares of land.
Such extreme weather is just one of the expected consequences of climate change. Sustained, coordinated action is needed to prevent further disaster. That means bringing together actors from the private sector, governments, international organisations, civil society and citizens to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and find new, innovative models that allow the world to share a prosperous, low-carbon future.This summer shows that climate change is no longer a distant, abstract prospect. Time is short.

Invitiamo studenti, cittadini e associazioni culturali a portare vecchi quotidiani, riviste, periodici all’interno dello spazio della Pelanda, al Macro, dove domani l’artista Marco Nereo Rotelli realizzerà una performance live rielaborando questo materiale in un’opera.

Confidiamo in una grande partecipazione di tutti”, conclude Montanari.

Commedia live

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 marzo 2012

Roma 11 marzo, alle ore 20 a LIBRI COME, Auditorium Parco della Musica, GARAGE / OFFICINA 3 (viale De Coubertin 30) sarà proprio Ivano Marescotti, a ricreare le atmosfere suggestive dell’opera editoriale, declamando alcune tra le più famose cantiche di Dante.C’è voluta tutta la grande versatilità dell’attore di teatro, televisione e cinema (tra i suoi film Johnny Stecchino, il Mostro di Roberto Benigni), per affrontare il capolavoro della poesia italiana. E Marescotti ha dato il meglio della sua arte per far rivivere i grandi personaggi del Poema: Virgilio, Ulisse e il Conte Ugolino ai quali l’artista ha dato un’anima oltre la voce. Canto dopo canto l’attore ci accompagna nell’Inferno, Paradiso, Purgatorio. A restituire le atmosfere di desolazione e dolore, di speranza e spiritualità, di diavoli e di angeli hanno contribuito gli effetti speciali che hanno reso il mondo dantesco in tutta la sua “spettacolarità”. Tre fascicoli con l’intero testo completano quest’opera multimediale. Ogni canto è brillantemente introdotto e commentato da Riccardo Bruscagli (dantista e preside della Facoltà di Lettere presso l’Università di Firenze). Un Dante da ascoltare oltre che da leggere. Ecco la chiave di “lettura” spettacolare con cui la Commedia di Zanichelli aiuta a comprendere la “divina” poetica del Poeta fiorentino. “Se avessi studiato la Commedia a scuola in questo modo, l’avrei trovata persino divertente”.  Parola di Ivano Marescotti (commedia)

I’m where i live

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 17 dicembre 2010

Entra nel vivo la seconda fase del concorso di idee indetto da I’m where i live per una “Sala di progettazione e incontri per architetti, creativi e artisti”. Il 15 ottobre scorso si era chiusa la prima fase, quella dedicata al raccoglimento di tutti i materiali e delle proposte. Il concorso, finalizzato all’acquisizione di idee progettuali per la realizzazione di una sala di progettazione e incontri per architetti, creativi e artisti, che ha ricevuto un’ottima risposta da parte del territorio, non solo pugliese, passa alla fase più delicata, quella in cui la giuria dovrà vagliare i lavori ricevuti. In concorso si inserisce nel programma degli enti promotori, Una giuria d’eccezione che dovrà misurarsi con le proposte, tenendo conto di quelli che sono i presupposti contenuti nel bando, ovvero sia la promozione dell’utilizzo di materie prime locali e materiali naturali, energie e fonti rinnovabili unite alla crezione di un modello in bio-architettura che permetta lo sfruttamento dell’energia solare e/o eolica; il tutto tenendo conto della salvaguardia del nostro patrimonio paesaggistico, per un inserimento eco-visivo nel tessuto e nel contesto urbano, senza dimenticare la connotazione didatttica del progetto. Ecco quindi i componenti della giuria che vaglieranno ognuno dei singoli progetti pervenuti, Mariella Piscopo (giornalista per riviste di architettura, Condè Nast), Alice Fiorilli, fotografa (Il Sole 24 Ore, 24, Elle Decor France), “Echomaterico” (architetti e urbanisti presenti a Lecce e Barcellona), AD Design, (architett, Lecce/Milano), e infine i fotografi Flavio&Frank (Lecce). Il ruolo di mediatore per questa giuria di eccellenza è affidato a Bruno Conte, scrittore e giornalista televisivo.

Arriva il nuovo live di Nevada

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 27 novembre 2010

Napoli sabato 27 novembre alle ore 21,00Teatro Mediterraneo della Mostra d’Oltremare Le canzoni come messaggi per stimolare la comunicazione tra i giovani. Nuovo ed originale evento country a Napoli.  Nel nuovo spettacolo, promosso dall’associazione “Giovani del Sud”, il country partenopeo e le sonorità tipiche dell’artista partenopeo, saranno ancora più coinvolgenti. Balli, musiche originali, brani inediti. Il tutto reso possibile grazie alla presenza di 7 musicisti professionisti, 2 ballerine, 2 cowgirls, la partecipazione del giovane talento Milena Setola (voce femminile del brano “O’ primm’ ammore”) e dei Blue Gospel Singers, un coro di 25 elementi diretto da Mario Paduano.  Le esibizioni di Nevada saranno accompagnate da Davide De Liberato al basso, Alessandro Spalice alle tastiere, Luca Racise e Salvatore De Vita alle chitarre, Fredy Malfi alla batteria, Mimmo Di Domenico alle percussioni e Andrea Esposito al violino.   La campagna promozionale del concerto è stata caratterizzata da una nuova immagine di Nevada studiata e realizzata dalla Sprintgrafica di Maurizio Zaccone. L’artista, in una posizione tratta da una delle sue esibizioni live, senza abbandonare il look che lo caratterizza da oltre 20 anni, si sovrappone, in bianco e nero, sul coro Gospel che caratterizzerà lo spettacolo insieme ad altri giovani artisti. Il messaggio è chiaro e deciso: prima di tutto la musica dal vivo per comunicare.  Il testo, tutto in dialetto popolare che ricorda antiche epoche di Napoli, viene interpretato anche dalla voce di Milena Setola che ha già dimostrato le sue potenzialità canore in diverse manifestazioni regionali e classificata nelle prime tre posizioni all’ultima edizione di Emozionart, rassegna per giovani artisti ideata ed organizzata dall’associazione Giovani del Sud. Il brano “O’ primm’ ammore” si può ascoltare, con il relativo video pubblicato su internet, digitando sul canale youtube “Nevada, O’ primm’ ammore” ed anche sui siti http://www.giovanidelsud.it e http://www.nevada.it.

Live performance by Liuba

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 novembre 2010

Torino Artissima Art fair  via Bertola 34 (What is missing in the Art World) Fiera internazionale d’arte contemporanea. Liuba, artista e performer di livello internazionale, lavora con video, fotografia ed urban interactive performance.  In occasione di Artissima 2010, Liuba ha deciso di realizzare questa performance inedita incentrata sul tema dell’abbraccio con cui va a coinvolgere direttamente il pubblico della fiera.
L’idea della performance nasce dalla delusione dell’artista per le relazioni umane nell’ambito del mondo dell’arte e la freddezza dei rapporti che abitualmente si instaurano con le persone conosciute in vari contesti.  Su queste basi Liuba si è immaginata un’azione dove il protagonista è l’abbraccio, il contatto umano, lo stringersi di corpo contro corpo; il tutto in un contesto ‘formale’ e sociale come l’opening di un’ importante fiera d’arte, dove tutti si incontrano, si parlano, si scambiano opinioni, fanno affari … senza mai incontrarsi davvero. La performance ha suscitato reazioni estremamente positive: tutte le persone coinvolte sono rimaste estremamente contente ed hanno dimostrato il bisogno di questo affetto, calore, commozione… Liuba, guardando tutti negli occhi, è riuscita a creare una relazione empatia con la gente tanto da abbandonarsi al suo abbraccio senza riserve e con gioia.
