  • Lincoln Project Tweets That McEnany is the “First Ghoul to Serve as Press Secretary,” Deletes a Minute Later

    08/26/2020 10:16:13 PM PDT · by Republican Wildcat · 25 replies ^ | August 26, 2020 | Jeremy Frankel
    On Tuesday night, during a montage of women who have served in both the Trump administration and campaigns, the anti-Trump phony conservative Lincoln Project tweeted that “Kayleigh McEnany is the first ghoul to serve as Press Secretary.” They deleted it only a minute later. This happened just the day after the group deleted another tweet claiming that an RNC audience member yelled “monkey” in reference to former President Barack Obama, which would’ve been an obvious racial slur. Even though the audio clearly said “spygate,” the phony “principled conservatives” still accused President Trump of enjoying the non-existent insult. While claiming to...

    Actress Kelly Preston has died following a two-year battle with breast cancer, husband John Travolta said in a social media post. She was 57. "It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife, Kelly, has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer," Travolta wrote Sunday in an Instagram post. "She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many." The actor praised doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston as well as Preston's "many friends and loved ones who have been by her side." "Kelly's love and life...

    GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – A team of scientists at the University of Northern Colorado believe venom from venomous snakes could carry the cure to cancer. Dr. Stephen Mackessy, professor at UNC’s School of Biology, says studies show venoms in different snakes can attack human cancer cells in unique ways. (credit: CBS) To conduct the study, Mackessy’s students are given access to hundreds of snakes from around the world, all of which are stored in a secured facility on the campus of UNC. From rattlesnakes to vipers, the students are able to extract venom from each snake to study the compounds...

    The T-shirts read "Fight like a girl." But while October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month brings messages of strength and familiar pink ribbons, a fight rages on for the disease's lesser-known victims: men. Though breast cancer strikes men much less often than women, a new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association [JAMA] reveals that three to five years after a breast cancer diagnosis, men are less likely to be alive.
  • 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)...
  • Converting Cancer Cells to Fat Cells to Stop Cancer’s Spread

    technologynetworks ^ | Jan 14, 2019 | Laura Elizabeth Lansdowne
    A method for fooling breast cancer cells into fat cells has been discovered by researchers from the University of Basel. The team were able to transform EMT-derived breast cancer cells into fat cells in a mouse model of the disease – preventing the formation of metastases. The proof-of-concept study was published in the journal Cancer Cell. Malignant cells can rapidly respond and adapt to changing microenvironmental conditions, by reactivating a cellular process called epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), enabling them to alter their molecular properties and transdifferentiate into a different type of cell (cellular plasticity). Senior author of the study Gerhard Christofori,...

    In February 2017, the Asia-Pacific Journal of Clinical Oncology published the “Epidemiology of breast cancer in Indian women.” Malvia, et al. found that from 1982-2005, the incidence of breast cancer had almost doubled. Breast cancer is now the leading cause of cancer deaths in women in India. India’s burden of breast cancer is ever increasing and now impacting 1.5 million women a year. Moreover women suffering from breast cancer were a decade younger than women in western countries. Most breast cancers in India occur in women in their 30s and 40s!

    Runner's World ^ | December 19, 2018 | Sarah Smith as told to Emily Shiffer
    Every time I work up a good sweat, I feel like my cancer cells are sweating, too. Over the past 7 years, running has been a constant for me. I ran cross country in middle school, but quit because I didn’t think I was good enough (silly me!). I’ve always been into fitness and ran casually in college, but it wasn’t until 2011 that I really buckled down and started running consistently. I ran my first marathon in 2012, and since then, I’ve run over 40 marathons and ultras. In fact, in September, I completed the Northcoast 24-Hour Endurance Run....

  • Biologists' new peptide could fight many cancers

    01/16/2018 2:30:48 PM PST · by Red Badger · 8 replies ^ | January 16, 2018 | by Anne Trafton, & Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    MIT biologists have designed a new peptide that can disrupt a key protein that many types of cancers, including some forms of lymphoma, leukemia, and breast cancer, need to survive. The new peptide targets a protein called Mcl-1, which helps cancer cells avoid the cellular suicide that is usually induced by DNA damage. By blocking Mcl-1, the peptide can force cancer cells to undergo programmed cell death. "Some cancer cells are very dependent on Mcl-1, which is the last line of defense keeping the cell from dying. It's a very attractive target," says Amy Keating, an MIT professor of biology...
  • Study Of 1.8 Million Women Links Birth Control And Breast Cancer

    Danish researchers have found there are approximately 13 additional breast cancer cases for every 100,000 women who use hormonal contraception for one year. Women who use hormonal birth control pills and other forms of contraceptives have a small but increased risk of developing breast cancer, a new study from Denmark has found — the latest in a string of dangerous side-effects researchers have discovered about the risks of hormonal contraceptives. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, followed 1.8 million Danish women for an average of more than 10 years. Of those women, researchers identified 11,517 cases...

    Several drugs are scoring big wins against common cancers, setting new standards for how to treat many prostate, breast and lung tumors. There's even a "uni-drug" that may fight many forms of the disease. What's especially striking: The drugs are beneficial in some cases for more than a year, much longer than the few months many new drugs provide.   Here are some highlights from the world's largest cancer meeting, the American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago:

    My wife has stage 4 metastatic cancer. She has battled this before and survived twice. This time the cancer has reached her brain and the doctors are a bit more apprehensive than before. Does anyone know about grants? All of her doctors are telling us to apply for grants to pay for her medicine. Any advice would be appreciated. I may not be able to respond right away, but I will do my best. Lots of planning and preparation on my part.

    Mammograms showing a normal breast (left) and a breast with cancer (right). Credit: Public Domain ============================================================================================================== Cancer cells often devise ways to survive even in the presence of toxic chemotherapy. Now, a research team led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) has found a way to attack a process that tumor cells use to escape the effects of standard cancer drugs. The discovery is published online today in the journal Nature Cell Biology. Cancer drugs are no longer limited to toxic chemicals that can cause significant side effects. Many are specially designed targeted therapies that seek out...
  • Worldwide cover-up of Abortion/Breast Cancer link continues to mount, plays catch-up

    It has been famously noted that facts—like the fact that abortion increases a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer (ABC link) — are stubborn things. One hopes that means that eventually, the truth always comes out. But along the way, we also see that necessity—like the political necessity to cover up the truth of the ABC link—is the mother of increasingly inventive ways to do just that. In fact, the latest technique is to resurrect a tired old bogeyman named “recall bias”, aka “response bias” or “reporting bias”, but in a particularly brazen way. The most recent study is yet...

    Please pray for Heidi Schmid, a 28 year old woman who I sadly discovered died last week of metastatic breast cancer. She worked as a pharmacy tech at the local Safeway where I pick up my prescriptions. She was with her family in Aurora, Colorado when she died and leaves two small children behind. I don't know if their father or grandparents are caring for them now. This is a truly evil disease in young women and deserves every bit of research money it can get. Please honor her memory with any contribution you can, especially now at Christmas. The...
