  • Scientists finally solved the mystery of why this wasp's venom can target and kill cancer cells

    Business Insider ^ | 09/03/2015 | Caroline Reid, IFL Science
    Wasps get their fair share of bad press. They have painful stingers, and they're not as useful to us (or as cute) as bees. Their time to step in the spotlight, however, may be just around the corner: Their venom has been shown to attack cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone. The cancer-targeting toxin in the wasp is called MP1 (Polybia-MP1), and until now, how it selectively eliminates cancer cells was unknown. According to new research, it exploits the atypical arrangement of fats, or lipids, in cancer-cell membranes. Their abnormal distribution creates weak points where the toxin can interact...

    We’ve told you before about IceCure’s amazing tumor-freezing technology that destroys breast tumors by freezing them into ice balls. Now the company has set its sights on another killer – lung cancer. The Israeli biomedical company that pioneered the application of cryoablation (a process which uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy diseased tissue) as a treatment for benign breast tumors (fibroadenomas), intends to expand its technology to the treatment of lung cancer, with a new clinical trial to begin in Japan.Related articles The Israeli Blind Mole Rat May Hold The Key To Curing CancerIsraeli Doc Teaches Dogs To Sniff...

    TAMPA David Allison knew better than most his chances of surviving pancreatic cancer. His brother and sister had died from the disease. "I figured it was the beginning of the end," said the 75-year-old retired milk truck driver, who spends his winters in Oldsmar. Allison tried fighting the cancer with conventional chemotherapy and radiation in April. But the treatment made him weak. His appetite disappeared. He lost nearly 30 pounds. He had resigned to let the disease run its notoriously deadly course until a doctor told him about something that sounded promising: a novel approach to chemotherapy that...

    Many remember the haunting photograph: A woman wearing business attire and pearls is covered head-to-toe in white dust, her hands held out helplessly before her, as she makes her way out of the World Trade Center's damaged North Tower on September 11, 2001. She survived that day, getting out before both towers of the trade center crumbled and killed 2,753 people in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. But the woman in the photos, known to most as the "Dust Lady," died Tuesday, her family said. Marcy Borders was 42.

    Second cancers are on the rise. Nearly 1 in 5 new cases in the U.S. now involves someone who has had the disease before. When doctors talk about second cancers, they mean a different tissue type or a different site, not a recurrence or spread of the original tumor. The trend is partly a success story: More people are surviving cancer and living long enough to get it again.

Speaking on a political soapbox at the Iowa State Fair Friday, Cruz said there were parallels between the Obama and Carter administrations. "I think the parallels between this administration and the Carter administration are uncanny. Same failed domestic policy, same misery, stagnation and malaise.

    At a press conference today, former President Jimmy Carter revealed the ways he is tackling the melanoma cancer that has spread to his brain and liver: He'll receive radiation, as well as another lesser-known treatment called immunotherapy. Up until now, most cancer patients only had a few options. They could get chemotherapy or radiation that kills cancerous cells and stops them from dividing, or surgery to cut out the disease. Yet the success rate of these options is far from perfect. Now a new kind of cancer treatment has come into play: immunotherapies. These treatments, which include Carter's infusion called...

Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.

"I have never believed that Jesus would be in favor of abortion, unless it was the result of rape or incest, or the mother's life was in danger.

Galanes pointed out that both Carter and Woodson went door to door as Christian missionaries when they were younger. Woodson went as a Jehovahs Witness, but no longer practices. Galanes understood.

When asked in a Huffington Post interview whether Jesus would approve of same-sex marriage, the former president felt informed enough to pontificate in the affirmative on the question, even while admitting that he had no scriptural basis for his conclusion.
