Which is the correct symbol for Medicine? Rod of Asclepius or Staff of Hermes (Caduceus)? Let's talk about the extremely common and embarrassingly incorrect symbol that is used in India (and the rest of the world) and why it frustrates me. #MedTwitter

After lots of opinions on SHINE and lots have asked my view, here is a brief thread with a few thoughts: 1. Congratulations to the authors. MCL is uncommon and not easy to perform very large randomised trials in - its a huge effort that should be celebrated and recognised.

Yesterday at the hospital, a man said to me, I hear my country in your voice. I have been thinking about it ever since. He didn’t say, like a typical American, you have an accent. He placed an entire country in my being & in so doing walked both of us into this communal space.

#ASCO22 Concluding thoughts: So much amazing science was presented @ASCO last week. We must never forget that failure is 100% a part of research. Figuring out what does and does not work is essential. Presenting and publishing negative trials is important.✅ #ThatIsScience

My thoughts on the DETERMINATION trial in myeloma presented in the Plenary session of #ASCO22 and published simultaneously in @NEJM #ASCO22VR 1) This is not a trial of transplant vs no transplant. 2) It's ~ the 5th RCT of early vs delayed transplant
