  • Scientists Successfully Turn Breast Cancer Cells Into Fat to Stop Them From Spreading

    Science Alert ^ | 8.10.2019 | Jacinta Bowler
    Researchers have been able to coax human breast cancer cells to turn into fat cells in a new proof-of-concept study in mice. To achieve this feat, the team exploited a weird pathway that metastasising cancer cells have; their results are just a first step, but it's a truly promising approach. When you cut your finger, or when a foetus grows organs, the epithelium cells begin to look less like themselves, and more 'fluid' – changing into a type of stem cell called a mesenchyme and then reforming into whatever cells the body needs. This process is called epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT)...
  • HIV used to cure 'bubble boy' disease

    BBC ^ | 4/17/19
    US scientists say they used HIV to make a gene therapy that cured eight infants of severe combined immunodeficiency, or "bubble boy" disease. Results of the research, developed at a Tennessee hospital, were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The babies, born with little to no immune protection, now have fully functional immune systems. Untreated babies with this disorder have to live in completely sterile conditions and tend to die as infants. The gene therapy involved collecting the babies' bone marrow and correcting the genetic defect in their DNA soon after their birth. The "correct" gene - used...
  • Victor Davis Hanson on Trump: ‘Chemotherapy’ to Kill ‘Cancer’ of ‘Permanent Political Class’

    Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and professor of Classics Emeritus at California State University, likened President Donald Trump to “chemotherapy” used to cure the “cancer” of America’s “permanent political class.” Hanson joined Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow to discuss his latest book, The Case for Trump. He explained his motivation for writing the book. “I wrote it because I felt the literature so far had been either ra-ra fanatically pro-Trump without a lot of analysis, or had been just Trump Derangement Syndrome stuff,” said Hanson. “I felt that people who...
  • Ten years after ‘Berlin patient,’ doctors announce second person has been effectively ‘cured’ of HIV

    For the second time, doctors appear to have put HIV into “sustained remission” with a stem cell transplant — effectively curing the recipient. Their work, which was published in Nature and will be presented at the annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Seattle on Tuesday, may encourage scientists working on new gene therapies based on similar principles and give hope to those living with the infection. The case comes nearly 10 years after Timothy Ray Brown announced he was the so-called “Berlin Patient” — the first person who was functionally cured of HIV and able to stop taking...

"We believe we will offer in a year's time a complete cure for cancer," said Dan Aridor, chairman of the board of Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi). That's a bold prediction, and some scientists are urging caution. But here's how the treatment would work. "We didn't want to have another drug like everyone else that would give relief to some cancer patients and then the cancer would come back. We...

There are a number of very bold claims in both articles, many which are unsubstantiated with no evidence provided by the company.

    Surviving cancer is totally a function of getting good information. If you have good information your chances of surviving your cancer can be 90 percent or higher. Television is one of the sources of bad information. Those who believe what they hear on television are likely to use the largely ineffective cancer treatments. Those who dig deeper can find cancer treatments with 90 percent and higher cure rates. A secret war, which very few people know about, is going on right now. You or someone you love could be a victim of this war. This war is not being fought...

    In September of 2017 I started having mild abdominal pain. It didn’t seem serious; I was scared it would be a kidney stone. But after two weeks and some sleepless nights, we became worried enough to go the the ER. A scan soon showed that a large mass was growing near my intestines. The young doctor, who I think looked as scared as I felt, suggested that we be admitted immediately to diagnose the issue. I was transported to a new floor, and two days later we learned that I had Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma, a fast-growing type of...

Their mode of transport: a thermo-molded plastic lunch cooler, of the sort one might nab at Walmart to carry a baloney sandwich and some freshly cured herring out for a day of salmon fishing on Puget Sound. The little coolers are ubiquitous at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, which four decades...

    Activating T cells in tumors eliminated even distant metastases in mice, Stanford researchers found. Lymphoma patients are being recruited to test the technique in a clinical trial. Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found.

The treatment is delivered just once, a facet of gene therapy that poses unique pricing questions in an industry fueled by steady payments for chronic therapies.

Parker was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice as it discussed legislation banning abortions on babies with beating hearts.

    The president and director of Seattle's Fred Hutch Institute says cancer can be cured by 2025. Dr. Gary Gilliland made the claim while speaking at the Geewkire Summit at Seattle's Sheraton Hotel. It was part of a general discussion on technology as a way to reduce the rates of cancer. Gilliland said in particular genome sequencing costs are falling, and it has opened the door for personalized medicine and immunotherapy. He also says there have been advances and research, which has helped in preventive cures. Gilliland says HPV vaccinations for boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 13...

    DEMENTIA - including Alzheimer’s disease - still has no effective treatment. However, the first new drugs for 14 years are likely to be approved next year - and they might just be the cure. Dementia is a decline in mental ability, and Alzheimer’s disease is its most common type. There are currently 44 million people around the world who suffer from the debilitating condition, which can cause memory loss and problems thinking. Despite the fact it costs the UK Ł26 billion a year, scientists have remained unable to successfully treat Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Last month a clinical...

    BALTIMORE (TNS) — Hasini Jayatilaka was a sophomore at the Johns Hopkins University working in a lab studying cancer cells when she noticed that when the cells become too densely packed, some would break off and start spreading. She wasn’t sure what to make of it, until she attended an academic conference and heard a speaker talking about bacterial cells behaving the same way. Yet when she went through the academic literature to see if anyone had written about similar behavior in cancer cells, she found nothing. Seven years later, the theory Jayatilaka developed early in college is now a...

    Share this video with anyone and everyone   EBC-46 is an experimental drug candidate being studied pre-clinically by the Australian company Ecobiotics (specifically its drug discovery subsidiary Qbiotics). It was discovered through an automated screening process of natural products by selecting increasingly purified fractions of plant extracts, based on their ability to produce the desired activity profile. This is then followed by artificial synthesis of the isolated compound to confirm its chemical structure. EBC-46 is a phorbol ester which, along with other related compounds, acts as a protein kinase C regulator.   The initial lead came from observation that...
