UT MD Anderson-led team identifies new potential treatment avenue to block an elusive target Scientists have connected two signature characteristics of pancreatic cancer, identifying a self-perpetuating "vicious cycle" of molecular activity and a new potential target for drugs to treat one of the most lehal forms of cancer. The research, reported in the journal Cancer Cell and led by scientists at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, connected the molecular dots between:...

Could preventing colon cancer be as simple as developing a taste for yerba mate tea? In a recent University of Illinois study, scientists showed that human colon cancer cells die when they are exposed to the approximate number of bioactive compounds present in one cup of this brew, which has long been consumed in South America for its medicinal properties. "The caffeine derivatives in mate tea not only induced death in human colon cancer cells, they also reduced important markers of...

Italian researchers found a DNA sequence that cause the most severe cases of lupus A "genetic accelerator" is responsible for the most severe cases of Lupus (systemic lupus erythemathosus), an autoimmune disease: the accelerator, called enhancer HS1.2, speeds up the activity of some critical genes of the immune system involved in the disease. A team of Italian researchers at the Catholic University of Sacred Heart in Rome found that the enhancer HS1.2 is like the accelerator of the car...

Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have identified a gene mutation that underlies the vast majority of cases of Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, a rare form of lymphoma that has eluded all previous efforts to find a genetic cause. The research (abstracts 261, 300, 434 and 597), to be presented at the American Society of Hematology's 2011 annual meeting on Monday, Dec. 12 at 2:45 p.m. PST, points to an error in a single digit of DNA -- one of three billion letters in the human...

Image 1 - Biochemical Cell Signals Quantified For The First Time

  Just as cell phones and computers transmit data through electronic networks, the cells of your body send and receive chemical messages through molecular pathways. The term “cell signaling” was coined more than 30 years ago to describe this process. Now, for the first time, scientists have quantified the data capacity of a biochemical signaling pathway and found a surprise — it´s way lower than even an old-fashioned, dial-up modem. “This key...

Nutri-Med Logic Corp.: According to a recent study, presently about 34 million people worldwide suffer from Alzheimer's and same is expected to triple over the next 40 years. Amongst seven (7) modifiable risk factors associated with Alzheimerâs, four have shown strongest correlation with chronic or even low-grade inflammation, re-affirming the importance of anti-inflammatory diets, such as Omega-3 diet. Miami, Florida (PRWEB) September 15, 2011 Nutri-Med Logic Corp: Should...

There are many kinds of cancers of the immune system, but one, Activated B-Cell Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, or ABC-DLBCL, is particularly common and pernicious. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine have shown for the first time that dogs that develop this disease spontaneously share the same aberrant activation of a critical intracellular pathway with humans. They also found that a drug designed to disrupt this pathway helps to kill tumor cells in...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
