Escalating the Demographic War: The Strategic Goal of Israeli Racism in Palestine
Ramzy Baroud | counterpunch.org | 2020-11-10
The discussion on institutional Israeli racism against its own Palestinian Arab population has all but ceased following the final approval of the discriminatory Nation-State Law in July 2018.

"We Are Committing Mass Suicide": Laurie Garrett on Danger of Overturning ACA During Pandemic
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-11-10
Today, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments in a case seeking to overturn the Affordable Care Act, and millions of Americans could lose their healthcare in the middle of a pandemic. "In a way, we're committing mass suicide," says science journalist Laurie Garrett, who says scrapping the landmark Obama-era healthcare law would leave people "to potentially carry disease forward into the community, into their workplaces, and so on, without any treatment, any help, any assistance. That's just insane."

As U.S. Faces Out-of-Control Pandemic, Pfizer Raises Hope for Vaccine, But Many Questions Remain

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has announced that a Phase 3, late-stage study found their potential COVID-19 vaccine showed more than 90% effectiveness. The two-dose vaccine still faces several challenges, including how to store and transport it, since it must be refrigerated at subzero temperatures. Pulitzer Prize-winning science journalist Laurie Garrett says the news is hopeful, but urges caution. "There's been no scientific release. There's no published data," she says. "We don't have anything to go with except what the lawyers at Pfizer massaged carefully into a single-page press release. So, we have to take th…

Noninvasive Oxygenation Strategies for Acute Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure–Reply
Ferreyro BL, Angriman F, Scales DC. | jamanetwork.com | 2020-11-10
In Reply We agree with Dr Antonucci and colleagues that endotracheal intubation, the secondary outcome in our network meta-analysis of noninvasive oxygenation strategies for acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, may not be an appropriate outcome for patients who do not wish to receive invasive mechanical ventilation. As an end point, endotracheal intubation is also vulnerable to manipulation in trials in which blinding of treatment allocation is not possible. This was the main rationale for choosing mortality as the primary end point in our review. Of note, most of the studies included in our network meta-analysis…

New Statin Use and Mortality in Older Veterans
Whittle J. | jamanetwork.com | 2020-11-10
To the Editor The study on the association of new statin use with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in older veterans found a reduction in all-cause mortality that was significantly larger than the reduction in cardiovascular mortality with statin use. In studies of primary prevention using statins in largely younger populations and in meta-analyses of participants older than 75 years in randomized trials, an effect on noncardiovascular mortality has not been demonstrated. It is also surprising that the risk of mortality decreased during follow-up, with the greatest effect seen in the initial 2 years, when r…

Preprints Involving Medical Research–Do the Benefits Outweigh the Challenges?
Flanagin A, Fontanarosa PB, Bauchner H. | jamanetwork.com | 2020-11-10
A preprint is a complete manuscript posted to a preprint server by authors before peer review and publication in a journal. The goals of preprints are to enable authors to obtain timely feedback and comments on research before submission to a peer-reviewed journal, to claim provenance of an idea, and to facilitate and expedite dissemination of and access to research. Preprints can be amended or updated, commented on by others, and remain on the preprint server even if subsequently published in a journal. They can be cited and indexed and increasingly are given attention in the news and social media.

Noninvasive Oxygenation Strategies for Acute Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure

To the Editor The systematic review and network meta-analysis by Dr Ferreyro and colleagues found that noninvasive oxygenation strategies (ie, helmet or face mask noninvasive ventilation; high-flow nasal oxygenation) were associated with a lower risk of mortality and endotracheal intubation compared with standard low-flow oxygen therapy in adult patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. This study could support wider use of noninvasive ventilation during the current coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, especially if the availability of ventilators is limited.
