Hello Henry. Sorry I was unable to be at the training session, however I should be online most of today and will be happy to help if I can. Feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if I can be of assistance. Rockpocket 10:33, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Your first barnstar[edit]

Hello Henry. Barnstars are awards given within Wikipedia for outstanding contributions. You have earned...

Real Life Barnstar.jpg The Real Life Barnstar
The Real Life Barnstar is yours for inviting Wikimedia UK into your workplace, Cancer Research UK, for a presentation and workshop which has enabled Wikipedia to benefit from you and your colleagues' expertise. MartinPoulter (talk) 21:55, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I too am glad to note that your article appears balanced. All too many times here we see users with professional or personal involvement in a subject writing content which struggles to stay neutral, but so far I'm glad to see that some detailed and professional content is being added and I hope everyone remains open to discussion no matter what our backgrounds. Good stuff. S.G.(GH) ping! 11:26, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Welcome/Thank you[edit]

I just read the BBC article about the work you are doing, and I wanted to extend a warm welcome and thank you for the work you have started. It's important work that you are doing here but sometimes thankless, so I hope that if/when your interactions with other editors becomes frustrating, you don't give up. - TheMightyQuill (talk) 15:53, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Adding links[edit]

Rather than just adding links it would be better if you worked to improve the content on Wikipedia. Please see WP:MEDRS for referencing requirements. Also it is best not to use sources you are associated with (ie published). Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 18:04, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

The Hallmarks of Cancer[edit]

Hi, Henry, I just expanded The Hallmarks of Cancer. I was surprised to find a WP entry, but those links are useful.

The Cell article is well worth reading. It gives a context to all those individual review articles on the genomics of cancer I've been reading. It was a lot simpler 11 years ago. --Nbauman (talk) 19:20, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Microtubules and Consciousness[edit]

Hi Henry. I would fully support the move of the Microtubules and Consciousness section to a new Wikipedia entry. I strongly feel that it does not belong on the Microtubule Wikipedia page. Are you willing to make that move? If not I can, but I am a new entry into the debate (although I have worked on microtubule associated proteins for 7 years). Orangutans (talk)

NICE statement at fulvestrant[edit]

Hi, noticed too late that you may have something to contribute here, do you have an opinion on Talk:Fulvestrant#NICE ? -- Richiez (talk) 19:58, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

will have a look now HenryScow (talk) 20:19, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
thanks. Just as a reminder for someone with a very fuzzy memory - how did NICE score in the Herceptin blunder? Richiez (talk) 23:11, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
IIRC they said no, for justifiable reasons (lack of data vs cost), then the Mail came along and whipped everyone up and the govt caved. Subsequent clinical data vindicated a 'yes' decision, but not a good way to do it. That's my late-night fuzzy memory take on it though! HenryScow (talk) 23:32, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
good refresh of my memory. Actually I remembered the controversy reasonably well but was not sure if NICE did exist or was involved at that time. In Old Europe we had the tendency to munch everything across the channel togehter as NHS (aka register for Tonsillectomy before your baby is born) so even a brilliant body such as the NICE has way to go stick out of this. The Herceptin controversy may be one of the better remembered issues, maybe it could be elaborated in the NICE article? It was gruesome to read all the newspaper articles about this affair. -- Richiez (talk) 22:21, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Palliative radiotherapy reference needed at "Lung cancer"[edit]

Hi, Henry. I am currently re-editing "Lung cancer". There is a sentence that states "Unlike other treatments, it is possible to deliver palliative radiotherapy without confirming the histological diagnosis of lung cancer." The sentence (not added by me) currently does not have a reference. I believe that the statement is true, but I am struggling to find a reliable source for this. Can you help? Thanks.

Disambiguation link notification for July 14[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Nucleolus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cells (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

More about Wikipedia Zero[edit]

Wiki Medicine[edit]


I'm contacting you because, as a participant at Wikiproject Medicine, you may be interested in a new multinational non-profit organization we're forming at m:Wikimedia Medicine. Even if you don't want to be actively involved, any ideas you may have about our structure and aims would be very welcome on the project's talk page.

Our purpose is to help improve the range and quality of free online medical content, and we'll be working with like-minded organizations, such as the World Health Organization, professional and scholarly societies, medical schools, governments and NGOs - including Translators Without Borders.

Hope to see you there! --Anthonyhcole (talk) 08:06, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

The Pulse (WP:MED newsletter) June 2014[edit]

The first edition of The Pulse has been released. The Pulse will be a regular newsletter documenting the goings-on at WPMED, including ongoing collaborations, discussions, articles, and each edition will have a special focus. That newsletter is here.

The newsletter has been sent to the talk pages of WP:MED members bearing the {{User WPMed}} template. To opt-out, please leave a message here or simply remove your name from the mailing list. Because this is the first issue, we are still finding out feet. Things like the layout and content may change in subsequent editions. Please let us know what you think, and if you have any ideas for the future, by leaving a message here.
