February 2011 Medicine Collaboration of the Month[edit]

Currently spinal cord injury has the most votes. Unless anyone nominates/votes on any other articles I think it is safe to say that it will most likely win but to be fair we should wait until this time tomorrow to see if anyone has any new articles to recommend or votes for other articles. Peter.C • talk 21:51, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

I have notified the people who supported that nomination of its selection and nudged folks at WT:MED. Peter, I think it would be useful to have you start a discussion on the article's talk page about something that needs to be improved. WhatamIdoing (talk) 18:37, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Template update[edit]

I've updated two templates to make the dates change automagically each month, and to fix the names of the articles and the date when they're subst'd rather than transcluded. WhatamIdoing (talk) 16:52, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks, in the name of the whole community :) NCurse work 20:24, 17 February 2011 (UTC)


It looks like pneumonia is currently the most popular; is that what we want to switch to on Friday? WhatamIdoing (talk) 22:10, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

It's now April, and Spinal cord injury has already been up for two months. Is anybody here? Are we ready to move on? WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:04, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Can't see any reason against this. Lets do it. Peter.C • talk • contribs 20:17, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes thanks... Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 23:49, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

May 2011 Medicine Collaboration of the Month[edit]

It's a new month so it's time for a new article. As Diabetes mellitus has the most votes I think we should switch to it by Tuesday 00:00 UTC. Any objections? Peter.C • talk • contribs 10:43, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

January 2012[edit]

I took the liberty of making pneumothorax, currently a featured article candidate, the collaboration of the month. --WS (talk) 13:18, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

seriously? pneumothorax has been the "project of the month" for the last 4 month? I'm sort of new here so I don't know about this sort of things, but is it always like this? I'm waiting for the next collaboration of the month so I can translate pneumothorax to french. Delage Clément (talk) 13:12, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Regarding August 2016's focus on transverse myelitis.....[edit]

This is an FYI, keep your ear to the ground alert as I have no citation for the following information. A friend was recently treated with immunotherapy for bladder cancer consisting of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) (a live attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis). Several months later, my friend developed rapidly progressive neuro-muscular failure of all 4 extremities and was airlifted to Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla, NY, a tertiary care center.

The diagnosis was TM caused by an autoimmune attack on the spinal nerves secondary to the BCG. Standard TM medications were administered and then a repeat round was given after a relapse occurred while at Helen Hayes Rehabilitation Hospital. This is apparently a rare cause for a rare condition, but with more frequent use of BCG immunotherapy for cancers, perhaps the incidence will rise in the future.
