[Comment] First-line treatment for type 2 diabetes: is it too early to abandon metformin?
Francesco Zaccardi, Kamlesh Khunti, Nikolaus Marx, Melanie J Davies | thelancet.com | 2020-11-28

The evidence that underpins these recommendations is partly based on the efficacy results in a small subgroup of the UK Prospective Diabetes Study participants, which showed a reduction in macrovascular and microvascular complications in overweight people with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes randomi…

We thank Darren Powell for his insightful feedback. Members of the WHO–UNICEF–Lancet Commission1 agree with Powell that marketing of any products to children might encourage potentially harmful consumption for the child, the planet, and children's futures, and that more work in both academic and political spheres is needed to highlight the risks.1 Our Commission's analysis of children's wellbeing and rights extends to the dangers of the commercialisation of childhood.

[Therapeutics] Direct oral anticoagulants: evidence and unresolved issues
Noel Chan, Magdalena Sobieraj-Teague, John W Eikelboom | thelancet.com | 2020-11-28
Currently licenced direct oral anticoagulants selectively target thrombin (eg, dabigatran) or coagulation factor Xa (eg, apixaban, betrixaban, edoxaban, and rivaroxaban). Designed to be given in fixed doses without routine monitoring, direct oral anticoagulants have a lower propensity for food and drug interactions than do vitamin K antagonists, and in randomised controlled trials involving around 250‚Äà000 patients, they were at least as effective for prevention and treatment of thrombosis and were associated with a lower risk of life-threatening bleeding.

[Correspondence] Harmful marketing to children
Darren Powell | thelancet.com | 2020-11-28
The WHO–UNICEF–Lancet Commission1 identified an important threat to children's health and futures by stating that children across the globe are exposed to exploitative advertising and marketing by the private sector. Fast food and sugar-sweetened beverages, alcohol, tobacco, e-cigarettes, breastmilk substitutes, and gambling, were positioned as the key products that children are increasingly exposed to and harmed by. However, by focusing on the marketing of particular so-called unhealthy products, the Commission has made a critical oversight.

Tema Fodje, Esther Choo | thelancet.com | 2020-11-28
This year has been one of tremendous uncertainty for medical students, especially those entering their final year. The dynamics of selecting a specialty, preparing to apply for it, and entering the application process have been disrupted. Many rotations were cancelled or changed so the opportunities to fully explore a specialty were curtailed. Other research and extracurricular activities in support of such training were also constrained. Students entered application season with only the small comfort of knowing that everyone was pretty much in the same boat.
