A third of all cancer deaths in the U.S. Are of this type.Avastin is the first drug approved by the FDA, designed to inhibit angiogenesis – the process of developing by which new blood vessels and feed a tumor. The drug is also approved. In combination with intravenous 5 – fluorouracil-based chemotherapy for first – or second-line treatment of patients with metastatic carcinoma of the colon or rectum.

In the U.S.proved by the FDA for the treatment of lung cancer combined treatmentThe FDA has approved the use of Avastin in lung cancer combination therapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel chemotherapy for the first-line treatment. Locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic non – squamous, non-small cell lung cancer – Avasting is now approved for the most common cancer. Continue reading

Betting shops and cafes.

They found staff exposed to harmful tobacco smoke had 95 % 95 %. Small particles in the air from cigarette smoke dropped from nearly hazardous levels in June to levels similar to the outdoor air in August and the staff had four times less cotinine in their blood, a byproduct of nicotine.. Researchers at the Tobacco Control Collaborating Centre in Warwick visited 59 establishments across the country in June and again in August, such as bars, bingo halls, betting shops and cafes.

The researchers examined the effect of salt and water consumption versus just water upon a group of 22 healthy men without high blood pressure. Participants in the study were blood pressure, rectal temperature, cardiac index , and urine output, one, two and three hours of supervised the men ingested either salt and water or water alone. Changes in rectal temperature were compared between the men identified as salt sensitive versus those who were salt resistant. Continue reading

FDA grants approval for the treatment of dementia of Parkinson’s diseaseThe Food and Drug Administration today Exelon for the treatment of mild to moderate dementia with Parkinson’s disease, a disease of the central nervous system. Exelon has for the treatment of for the treatment of mild , moderate to dementia of the Alzheimer type . It’s for nearly a decade that the dementia of patients with Parkinson’s disease differs from dementia in patients with Alzheimer’s disease has been recognized, said Dr. Steven Galson, director of the FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, but until now, there was no treatment that has been shown to be effective specifically helps for dementia with Parkinson’s disease today’s approval of Exelon unmet medical need unmet medical need . The use of Exelon has significant significant gastrointestinal side effects associated. In clinical studies, 47 % of patients with the drug developed nausea, and treated 26 % of women and 18 % of men on high doses of Exelon experienced significant weight loss. Other common side effects in patients who appeared Exelon include vomiting, anorexia, dyspepsia and asthenia . In some patients with Parkinson’s disease, treatment with Exelon was of tremor.

The data may be biased towards lower income groups.

Experts say, is the high rate of uninsured children in public before the recession studied studied involved children from families that were already struggling. Therefore, the data may be biased towards lower income groups.

They gathered clinical data on AHT cases in children under 5 years from January 2004 to June 2009. They defined a recession as the period between 1 December 2007 to 30 June 2009. Where AHT cases had occurred, rose from 8.9 gathered details about unemployment in every county in every quarter. There were 422 children diagnosed with AHT in 74 districts during the five-year period of the study -. The total increased from 8.9 per AHT 100th before the economy collapsed to 14.7 per 100,000 in the recession. There were about 65 cases per year before the recession, and about 108 annually while she. Continue reading

With 500 approximately 15 vs.

C vs . Difficile associated diarrhea is a major cause of morbidity and increasing health care costs in hospitalized patients difficile infections have increased dramatically in recent years, with 500 approximately 15,000n the United States each year about 15,000 deaths each year. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.

Target of another study unveiled today was to and inexpensive and inexpensive antimicrobial agents commonly in an effort to in an effort to fight difficile in hospitals. ‘For more than 2000 years ago in the Indian subcontinent, indigenous people have been using turmeric in their daily food,’explained Rattan Patel, ‘ ‘Traditional Indian medicine, Ayurveda, has been using this spice to help decrease the rate of gastrointestinal infection.’ – Found turmeric , Patel and his research all all strains from C. Difficile of turmeric extract were locked In the study, ‘ Inhibition of Hospital Infection of Toxigenic Clostridium difficile Using Natural Spice Associated. – ‘turmeric has been shown to be relatively safe in clinical trials with more than 40 clinical studies in the United States, using curcumin as an intervention within the clinical Trail database,’Dr. ‘It is likely that daily use of turmeric in the hospital, in foods like curry or soup, can potentially decrease the incidence of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea. Further studies are needed further studies are needed the mechanism of the mechanism of action of turmeric and the physiological effects of turmeric in animal models of pseudomembranous colitis, ‘said Dr. Continue reading

Can transport genetic material molecules to the right place.

Currently, natural deactivated viruses are the most commonly used vectors in clinical trials, but the side effects often limit therapeutic application.. DNA insert directly into the cell nucleus using protein nanodisks – One of the challenges of gene therapy – a set of methods in treating of several nucleic acid diseases is aimed – is to make sure that this material is directly arrives to the nucleus of the cell. Without a substantial amount on the way and without any side effects With this aim scientists experiment with the use of various types of vectors, can transport genetic material molecules to the right place.

It is usually tunes these mechanoreceptors. Moderately high frequencies in normal humans In mice lacking functional KCNQ4 channels these receptors may no longer distinguish between low and high frequencies.. Of course there are parallels to be heard, of Matthias of Matthias Heidenreich and Stefan Lechner of the groups of Thomas Jentsch and Gary Lewin In. A first step, the researchers created in the lab Jentsch a mouse model for deafness by creating a line, the mouse, the same mutation in the potassium channel as the patient performs this form of genetic hearing loss. The touch receptors in the skin, the fine tuning KCNQ4 potassium channel found not die due to the defective channel as they are in the ear, but showed altered electrical response to mechanical stimulation in the mutant mouse.

Surgeons and radiation oncologists have long tried.

Surgeons and radiation oncologists have long tried, at least a 1 – centimeter margin of treatment surrounding provide all aspects a localized breast cancer, and it was important to have a similar ensure surgical margin of lethal temperatures beyond all tumor cryotherapy cryotherapy ,, said Littrup. the good visualized ice margin by ultrasound CT or MR is actually only the 0-degree Celsius line or isotherm, which lethal lethal enough, but unfortunately has been confused with the actual treatment margin. We have made sure that the lethal isotherm of approximately-30 degrees Celsius extended beyond all tumor margins, said Littrup.

‘.. The research, which is currently available online in advance raises the February 2011 issue of Annals of Surgery, new questions about a medical practice developed decades ago that be the standard of care, despite a lack of scientific research into its validity. The researchers say that a binding pre-hospital infusions for all trauma patients – the case in many states, including Maryland – should be discouraged. Some groups are slow. Considering changes to its policies – ‘Giving infusions to patients until go to the hospital go to the hospital to delay transport,’says Elliott R. Associate Professor of Surgery, the 776th and Intensive Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the study guide. ‘Our study suggests it may be better to treat patients more quickly to the hospital.
