    Scientists examined how butyrate, one of the short-chain fatty acids found in the gut, suppresses the growth of different colon cancer cells in the laboratory. The results show that the benefit of butyrate is specific to the cell line studied and is apoptosis-dependent, a process of gene-directed cell death (this a molecular mechanism that plays a crucial role in removing damaged or mutated cells selectively from tissues in an orderly manner). Diet composition is among several factors that can contribute to the prevention of colon cancer. Consuming a healthy diet that is high in fiber can help maintain a healthy...

    A study found that a single dose of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG), the vaccine for tuberculosis (TB), reduced liver tumor burden and extended the survival of mice with liver cancer. The study is the first to show the promising effects of the vaccine in treating liver cancer. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type of liver cancer. BCG, the century-old TB vaccine, is considered safe and widely used around the world. BCG is also known to boost the body's immunity. The U.S. FDA has approved it for the treatment of bladder cancer. Yet, the potential effect of BCG in treating...
  • Research suggests natural compound could be promising new alternative treatment for colon cancer (Schisandra berry extract)

    03/01/2024 9:30:41 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 5 replies
    A new study has discovered a naturally occurring compound found in fruit has the potential to be an effective alternative treatment for colon cancer. A team of international scientists have found a polyphenol called Schisandrin B (Sch B) exhibits a remarkable anti-tumorigenic effect on colon cancer. The compound is found in the fruit of Schisandra chinensis, also known as the magnolia or five-flavor berry, which is native to forests of Northern China, the Russian Far East, and Korea. Wild varieties are also found in Japan and it is often used in plant-based foods and drinks. Existing research has shown Sch...
  • How chronic stress spreads cancer (4X metastasis concern - destress to help)

    02/29/2024 9:25:23 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 5 replies
    Stress is inevitable. Chronic stress can increase our risk for heart disease and may also help cancer spread. How this works has remained a mystery. They discovered that stress causes certain white blood cells called neutrophils to form sticky web-like structures that make body tissues more susceptible to metastasis. The finding could point to new treatment strategies that stop cancer's spread. The team arrived at their discovery by mimicking chronic stress in mice with cancer. They first removed tumors that had been growing in mice's breasts and spreading cancer cells to their lungs. Next, they exposed the mice to stress....
  • Intravesical gemcitabine/docetaxel as an alternative therapy for patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (Better results than with TB vaccine use)

    Bladder cancer is one of the more common cancers worldwide. Intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin (tuberculosis vaccine) has been used as adjuvant therapy by urologists since 1976. Unfortunately, BCG fails approximately 40% of patients in two years. Since 2012, BCG has been in a worldwide shortage situation. One of the most promising new strategies for NMIBC is the combination of intravesical chemotherapy drugs used as sequential therapy, one drug after the other, with one-hour bladder dwell time for each drug. Initial results with gemcitabine (Gem) and mitomycin C (MMC) appeared promising but shortages in MMC led to the need to substitute docetaxel...
  • Significant proportion of cancer drugs lack proof of added benefit, finds study

    British Medical Journal ^ | FEBRUARY 28, 2024
    Many cancer drugs approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) between 1995 and 2020 lack proof of added benefit, particularly those approved through expedited ("fast track") pathways, finds a study published by The BMJ. Despite pharmaceutical industry claims that high drug prices are needed to offset research and development (R&D) costs, the results show that more than half of these drugs, including those with minimal or no added benefit, recover R&D expenses within three years. As such, the researchers call for better alignment between regulatory and reimbursement processes, particularly for drugs approved through expedited pathways, to promote development of the...

    OAN ^ | February 28, 2024 | James Meyers
    A new study has discovered that tattoo inks could be linked to cancer or organ failure. An analysis of 54 inks commonly used in tattoo parlors across America has uncovered that a staggering 45 of them contained unlisted additives, including chemicals known to pose alarming health risks. Multiple inks contained 2-phenoxyethanol, which can cause toxic effects in high doses. Researchers involved in the study found the most common additive to be polyethylene glycol, which is a compound that can cause acute renal failure. The study was led by Jonn Swierk from the Department of Chemistry at Binghamton University, and was...

    Gary Sinise, the star of “CSI: NY,” has revealed that his son, McCanna “Mac” Sinise, died at 33. Mac died Jan. 5 after a five-and-a-half year battle with chordoma, a rare form of cancer. On Tuesday, the Gary Sinise Foundation took to Instagram to share a picture of Mac with the caption, “In Honor & Memory of McCanna ‘Mac’ Sinise 1990-2024.” Sinise, 68, had Mac with his wife, Moira Harris – the couple has been married since 1981, and also have daughters Sophie and Ella. Sinise, who has won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a Tony, is also known...
  • Coffee consumption associated with reduced mortality in people with colorectal cancer (37% less relapse risk with 4+ coffees a day)

    02/24/2024 9:33:25 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 45 replies
    There appears to be a significant link between the coffee intake of people with intestinal cancer and mortality, as well as the likelihood of the disease returning after remission. A team in which researchers participated have reached this conclusion. Previous research showed that coffee consumption reduced the risk of intestinal cancer. This new study investigated whether coffee also impacts the disease's progression. The researchers compared coffee intake to the return of the disease after remission and the mortality among patients. A total of 1,719 patients were questioned about their lifestyle, including the question of how much coffee they drank. The...

    It may take more than 10 years for someone injured by a COVID-19 vaccine to receive a decision on whether their claim is eligible for compensation by the government’s vaccine compensation program—if they receive a response at all. U.S. health officials responded to questions on America’s failing vaccine injury compensation system in a hearing that left the vaccine-injured feeling like addressing the system’s shortcomings is not a priority on Capitol Hill. As of Jan. 1, there were 12,854 claims filed for injuries caused by COVID-19 countermeasures with the government’s Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), including 9,600 related to injuries caused...

  • Addition of durvalumab, bevacizumab to TACE beneficial in liver cancer

    02/13/2024 9:23:30 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 2 replies
    For patients with embolization-eligible unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (uHCC), the addition of durvalumab (D) and bevacizumab (B) to transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) improves progression-free survival (PFS), according to a study. Riccardo Lencioni, M.D. and colleagues randomly assigned patients with embolization-eligible uHCC to D + B + TACE, D + TACE, or TACE in a 1:1:1 ratio (204, 207, and 205 patients, respectively). The primary end point was PFS for D + B + TACE versus TACE. The researchers found that PFS was significantly improved for D + B + TACE versus TACE (median, 15.0 versus 8.2 months; hazard ratio, 0.77). Across most...

    Lloyd Austin underwent an invasive surgical procedure called a prostatectomy for his prostate cancer. He was readmitted to the ICU ward of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center seven days later, on January 1st, due to complications caused by a severe infection. It appears he was septic. He concealed his inability to carry out his duties from Biden, Congress, the Pentagon, and his Deputy Secretary, Dr. Kathleen Hicks. On January 4th, finally becoming aware of Austin’s hospitalization, security adviser Jake Sullivan notified Hicks, who was on vacation in Puerto Rico. Even though Biden continued to back Austin, Austin was already...

    Vladimir Putin once again appeared to be unable to control a twitchy leg during his lengthy interview with US right-wing journalist Tucker Carlson earlier this week. The Russian president spent half an hour of the sit-down chat on an almost uninterrupted ramble covering 1,200 years of Eastern European history. But some viewers were distracted by his apparent need to physically push down his knee to prevent his leg from moving around. It’s been an odd habit of Putin’s for a while – stretching back at least as far as September 2022, when the appendage started twitching during a speech in...

    The technology used in Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine carries toxicity risks, scientists with the company said in a new paper.“A major challenge now is how to efficiently de-risk potential toxicities associated with mRNA technology,” the scientists wrote in the paper, which was published by Nature Reviews Drug Discovery on Jan. 23.The Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 shots use modified messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) technology. The mRNA is delivered by lipid nanoparticles (LNP).The toxicity risks include “lipid nanoparticle structural components, production methods, route of administration and proteins produced from complexed mRNAs,” the authors of the paper said.Authors of the paper include Eric Jacquinet...

    Paul Mann received chemotherapy and radiation treatments for metastatic prostate cancer. “It was just so hard,” he said. “Then I thought, I can’t give up. I have it written on my arm that I won’t.” He took ivermectin and supplements after traditional care and is in remission. (Photos from Paul Mann) After ten rounds of radiation and six of chemotherapy, Paul Mann, fifty-five years old, wanted to know his chances. “You’re squeaking by day to day,” his doctor told him. It had been five months since his diagnosis. He was referred to a hospice service and seen by a minister....

    Calling for governments to enact a "global moratorium" on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines could have been a death sentence for a scientist's career not long ago. Now it opens the door to a prestigious science publisher. The Springer Nature medical journal Cureus, sibling to Nature and Scientific American, published a peer-reviewed paper by high-profile mRNA vaccine critics last month, showing the growing mainstream openness to data and arguments once nitpicked if not ignored by publishers and suppressed by academia and Big Tech. The feds have struggled to keep interest high in each new formulation of the COVID vaccines, with fewer than...
