The report describes a complex problem and the steps that must […]

Always Good To Remember

Science-based Approach Following three strategies for both cancer prevention and weight loss are similar. Strategies for Cancer Prevention: 1. Eat mostly plant-based foods, which are low in energy density 2. Be physically active 3. Maintain a healthy weight (via steps 1 and 2, as well as reducing portion size) Strategies for Weight Loss: 1. Eat […]

You Already Know How to Defeat Cancer

There are more than 100 types of Cancers. To learn about them go to: cancer.org. It appears that there is not much to panic, because the matter of the fact is that if we look at what causes cancer, it is very obvious that majority of the cancers are preventable. Look at WHAT CAUSES CANCER Inherited (Hereditary) – about […]

Cancer

Cancer is a broad group of various diseases involving unregulated cell growth. It is medically known as a malignant neoplasm. In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably and invade nearby parts of the body. The cancer may also spread to more distant parts of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream, it is called […]

MRI and New Developments at Harvard Univ.

For decades, scientists have used techniques such as x-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging to gain invaluable insight into the atomic structure of molecules. Such efforts have long been hampered by the fact that they demand large quantities of a specific molecule, often in ordered and crystallized form, to be effective—making it all […]

Plantago as Chemopreventive or Chemotherapeutic

For thousands of years in Asia, Althaea rosea Cavanil (ARC) and Plantago major L. (PML) have been used as powerful non-toxic therapeutic agents that inhibit inflammation. However, the anticancer mechanisms and molecular targets of ARC and PML are poorly understood, particularly in epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced neoplastic cell transformation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the […]

Cancer epigenomes

Driver mutations of cancer epigenomes. Roy DM1, Walsh LA, Chan TA.  Protein Cell. 2014 Mar 14. [Epub ahead of print] Author information 1Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, 10065, USA. Abstract Epigenetic alterations are associated with all aspects of cancer, from tumor initiation to cancer progression and metastasis. It is […]

Cancer of blood vessels

Cancer therapy may be too targeted Genetic landscape of rare cancer acts as a guide for future clinical trials Researchers have identified two novel cancer genes that are associated with the development of a rare, highly aggressive, cancer of blood vessels. These genes may now act as markers for future treatments and explain why narrowly […]

Acetaminophen: over use and/or dose may damage your liver

According to the FDA, cases of severe hepatic injury with acetaminophen occurred in patients who exceeded the prescribed dose of an acetaminophen-containing product in a 24-hour period. Because of the risk for liver damage, the FDA is now asking clinicians not to prescribe combination prescription pain relievers containing more than 325 mg of acetaminophen per […]

Gut microbes spur development of colorectal cancer

The development of intestinal tumors (polyps) in mice (left) was prevented by modifying the composition of gut microbes (right). It is not only genetics that predispose to bowel cancer; microbes living in the gut help drive the development of intestinal tumors, according to new research in mice published in the March issue of The Journal […]

Biomarkers that provide insight into the risk of death: Predict the Unpredictable

To identify biomarkers for early identification of ambulatory persons at high short-term risk of death, the current study conducted high-throughput profiling of blood specimens in two large population-based cohorts. Background: A biomarker is a biological molecule found in blood, body fluids, or tissues that may signal an abnormal process, a condition, or a disease. The level of […]

Why Nicotine Is BAD for Your Fallopian Tube ?

Epidemiological studies have shown that cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for tubal ectopic pregnancy but the reason for this remains unclear. Here, the study was set out to determine the effect of smoking on Fallopian tube gene expression. An oviductal epithelial cell line (OE-E6/E7) and explants of human Fallopian tubes from non-pregnant women (n = 6) […]

The Effects of Anti-Vaccine Conspiracy Theories

The current studies investigated the potential impact of anti-vaccine conspiracy beliefs, and exposure to anti-vaccine conspiracy theories, on vaccination intentions. In Study 1: British parents completed a questionnaire measuring beliefs in anti-vaccine conspiracy theories and the likelihood that they would have a fictitious child vaccinated. Results revealed a significant negative relationship between anti-vaccine conspiracy beliefs […]

Optogenetic Stimulation and Real-Time EC Recording of Dopamine Release

Dopaminergic PC12 cells can synthesize and release dopamine, providing a good cellular model for investigating dopamine regulation. Optogenetic stimulation of channelrhodopsin-2 provides high spatial and temporal precision for selective stimulation as a powerful neuromodulation tool for neuroscience studies. The aim of this study is to measure dopamine release from dopaminergic PC12 cells under optogenetic stimulation using electrochemical recording of self-assembled monolayers modified […]
