John Appleby: Hoping for the “Appleby paradox”

John Appleby is 56 and practises the science of economics with a cheerful demeanour. As chief economist at the King’s Fund since 1998 he often has to spell out gloomy news about financial dangers and missed targets, as a barometer of the NHS’s financial and organisational health. Given politicians’ propensity for putting the best complexion on whatever muddle they find themselves in, Appleby provides a much needed reality check. Before joining the King’s Fund he worked for the NHS in Birmingham and London, as well as the NHS Confederation’s predecessor body, the University of Birmingham, and the University of East Anglia. He is a visiting professor at City University and Imperial College, both in London.

Reforming the Cancer Drug Fund

The Cancer Drug Fund was originally conceived as a temporary measure, until value based pricing for drugs was introduced, to give NHS cancer patients access to drugs not approved by NICE. Spending on these drugs rose from less than the £50m (€63m; $79m) budgeted for the first year in 2010-11 to well over £200m in 2013-14, and the budget for the scheme—now extended for a further two years—will reach £280m by 2016.1 The recent changes to the fund recognise the impossibility, within any sensible budget limit, of providing all the new cancer drugs that offer possible benefit to patients. More radical changes are needed to the working of the fund, given the failure to introduce value based pricing, so that it deals with the underlying problem of inadequate information on the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of new cancer drugs when used in the NHS.

Will rising tuition fees stop talented students becoming doctors?

Will the new tuition fees affect who can attend medical school? Will this lead to only students with financial backing becoming doctors. Will future doctors be in £45,000 of debt and will this put people off becoming doctors?

Is there any other source of hydrogen ions and lactate production in a cell apart from glycolysis?

Hi all, I was wondering if you know of any other source of hydrogen ions and lactate production in a cell APART from glycolysis? Is it produced by normal cellular processes? According to my understanding, H+ and lactate are produced under hypoxic conditions. Glucose is broken down into lactic acid with then dissociates into lactate and H+. Thanks!

What exactly means diuresis?

I always thought diuresis means (normal) urine production or urine excretion, but practically every single online dictionary (Webster, dictionary.com, medterms.com...) says diuresis means increased urination. Any thoughts?
