iWeb celebrates national autism awareness day

1st April, 2014|

World Autism Awareness Day takes place on Wednesday 2nd April 2014.WAAD-2014
The day was unanimously declared as World Autism Awareness Day by the United Nations General Assembly in 2008 to highlight the need to improve the lives of children and adults who suffer from autism.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that manifests itself during the first three years of life and results from a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain.

The disorder mostly affects children and is prevalent across countries, genders, races and socio-economic backgrounds.

“The rate of autism in all regions of the world is high and it has a tremendous impact on children, their families, communities and societies,” the UN said in a statement.

Children affected by autism have impairments in social interaction, problems with verbal and non-verbal communication and show restricted or repetitive behaviour, interests and activities.

Scientists presume distinct causes for the complex disorder.

A recent study by the University of Chicago suggests that exposure to air pollutants can dramatically increase a child’s chances of developing autism.

According to a more recent research study by the University of California, the San Diego School of Medicine and the Allen Institute for Brain Science, autism begins during pregnancy and is largely genetic.

2014: Call for action

This year’s World Autism Awareness Day marks the celebration of the creative minds of people with autism and calls for all possible opportunities for education, employment and integration for them, according to the UN.

“World Autism Awareness Day is about more than generating understanding; it is a call to action. I urge all concerned to take part in fostering progress by supporting education programmes, employment opportunities and other measures that help realise our shared vision of a more inclusive world,” UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon said.

NIHR Announcement

3rd September, 2013|

clients7Congratulations to our strategic partner The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust appointed as the new local host.

The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT) is one of just 15 NHS Trusts/Foundation Trusts in England to be appointed to run a local branch of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network, it was announced (Tuesday 3rd September 2013).

The NIHR Clinical Research Network is the clinical research delivery arm of the NHS. It provides funding to hospitals and surgeries to pay for research nurses, scans, x-rays and other costs associated with carrying out clinical research in the NHS.

Since April 2013, the Network has been carrying out a selection process to identify 15 local “host” organisations, as part of a programme to simplify its administrative arrangements, while strengthening the infrastructure for carrying out clinical studies across the country.

As the chosen Trust for the West Midlands, RWT will be awarded a five year contract from the Department of Health through the NIHR, and will take responsibility for distributing £27 million of funding per year, to support clinical research across the whole area.

Commenting on the appointment, RWT Chief Executive David Loughton CBE said: “Clinical Research is vitally important to the NHS and the population as a whole. For the Trust to be chosen to host the West Midlands branch of the NIHR Clinical Research Network gives us a fantastic opportunity to drive forward research and use the evidence we gather to improve ongoing treatments and develop new, potentially life-saving treatments for our patients.

“Clinical research is on the rise in the NHS and we have been helping to spearhead the trend. We are now very much looking forward to working with other NHS Trusts in the West Midlands region to ensure we stay at the cutting edge of clinical research being carried out and to look at ways to encourage more and more patients to take part.”

Celebrating International Clinical Trials Day on Monday 20th May

20th May, 2013|

Each year, International Clinical Trials Day is celebrated around the world on or near the 20 May to commemorate the day that James Lind started his famous trial.

Scurvy was a deadly disease in 1700s and there were a lot of conflicting ideas about how to treat it. Lind carried out his trial whilst serving on HMS Salisbury in 1747 comparing six of the proposed remedies. All his scurvy patients were given the same general diet but this was supplemented with various additional items, including cider, elixir vitriol, vinegar, seawater, nutmeg and (crucially) oranges and lemons. In just six days, those patients taking citrus fruits were fit for duty. This enabled Lind to make the link between citrus fruits in the diet and prevention of scurvy. Find out more from the Welcome Trust website.

Thanks to James Lind, carefully regulated clinical trials are currently the most effective way to establish which new treatments are beneficial for human health. International Clinical Trials Day provides a focal point to raise awareness of the importance of research to health care, and highlight how partnerships between patients and healthcare practitioners are vital to high-quality, relevant research.
