Combination Therapy Kills Pancreatic Cell Tumors In Mice – Clinical Trials Can Proceed Quickly

Combination Therapy Kills Pancreatic Cell Tumors In Mice – Clinical Trials Can Proceed Quickly

Fisher

(Best Syndication News) There is new hope for those suffering from Pancreatic Cancer, according to researchers from the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Massey Cancer Center. A combination chemoprevention gene therapy (CGT) involving a dietary agent and a protein have been able to effectively kill established pancreatic tumors.

So far the research has only been done on mice. Chief investigator Paul B. Fisher, Ph.D. says “Our hypothesis was that certain non-toxic dietary agents that had the ability to promote reactive oxygen species (ROS) would break down pancreatic cancer cell resistance to therapy following administration of mda-7/IL-24 and be safe for human use.”

(Best Syndication News) A new pill may give you the benefits of exercise without actually having to perform at the gym. Researchers are calling the drug, AICAR, the couch potato pill, and it is in the third phase of experimental trials. Another drug, GW1516, can enhance endurance when combined with exercise.

The “exercise in a pill” has been tested on mice with great results, according to Ronald Evans of the Salk Institute. "When we gave the mice a small amount of daily exercise in the presence or not of the drug, all showed an increased ability to run. But those on the drug gained an additional hour,” Evans said.

Allergy Response Caused By Lack of Custom T-Cells – Treg Regulatory Cell Responsible For Remembering Allergens

Allergy Response Caused By Lack of Custom T-Cells – Treg Regulatory Cell Responsible For Remembering Allergens

Maria A. Curotto de Lafaille

(Best Syndication News) Researchers say that custom T cells are responsible for immune response (see the videos below). These specialized T-cells are programmed to remember foods, chemicals and other substances. Some of these substances are “remembered” as harmless and allowed to pass.

Scientists in New York have identified a class of these immune cells that block allergic reactions. Things can go awry when these T-cells are not created to specific substances and the lack of them may trigger an allergic response. These regulatory cells received their instructions and are created by a gene called Foxp3. Whenever we eat or inhale anything for the first time, a memory is created of that substance.

Autism Genes Identified – Therapy For Turned Off Genes Possible

(Best Syndication News) Researchers have found new genes that may cause autism making it easier to develop gene therapies to possibly treat or cure the disease. The good news is that most of the genes were not deleted or removed but were just not turned on. This makes it easier to develop treatments.

Since Middle Eastern parents may be closely related and have many children, the researchers focused on this region of the world. According to a paper from the Children's Hospital of Boston, in traditional Arab societies it is common for cousins to marry, increasing the likelihood that offspring will inherit rare mutations.

Give yourself a "Gene Makeover": 5 Tips for healthy bones

| |

As we age, our bones are at risk of becoming more brittle and prone to conditions like osteoperosis. Following are tips for protecting our bones as we age from renowned orthopedic surgeon and anti-aging physician, Frederick Buechel, Sr., M.D. Dr. Buechel co-authored the best-selling book The Gene Makeover: The 21st Century Anti-Aging Breakthrough.

1. Nutrition:

Healthy bones require proper amounts of protein, calcium, magnesium and organic phosphates to mature, and remain strong. Consider eating foods that are rich in these nutrients such as spinach, sardines (with bones), lean meats and poultry, as well as, small amounts of low-fat dairy products. Organic products are preferred.
