Promising cancer therapy advanced by chemical explanation

(Faculty of Science - University of Copenhagen) Radiation therapy: A chilling word that creates images of burn-injuries where the cancer killing ray went through the skin. For decades research hospitals have been investigating the alternative method Hadron therapy, or particle therapy, where runaway cells are bombarded with 'naked' atomic nuclei or protons. When the particles pass through sick cells the collision creates chemical reactions preventing further cell division. Now researchers at the Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen, have discovered an unknown reaction caused by the therapy.

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for colorectal cancer lung metastases (CRCLM) has been studied since 2000 and shown to be safe with promising short to mid-term survival data. RFA aims to be an alternative treatment for CRCLM that are unsuitable for lung resection. Recently, microwave ablation (MWA) has grown in popularity for CRCLM. However, short to long-term efficacy of both modalities have yet to be understood.

This study showed that potential vicious cycles underlying ARDs are quite diverse and unique, triggered by diverse and unique factors that do not usually progress with age, thus casting doubts on the possibility of discovering the single molecular cause of aging and developing the single anti-aging pill. Rather, each disease appears to require an individual approach. However, it still cannot be excluded that some or all of these cycles are triggered by fundamental processes of aging, such as chronic inflammation or accumulation of senescent cells. Nevertheless, experimental data showing clear cause and effect relationships...

IBD as a risk factor for prostate cancer: what is the link?, Published online: 11 February 2019; doi:10.1038/s41585-019-0157-7Chronic inflammation in the prostate is a suspected risk factor for prostate cancer. Burns and colleagues implicate chronic inflammation in prostate cancer development, albeit from an unexpected source — the gastrointestinal tract. This new study implicates a history of inflammatory bowel disease with an increased risk of a prostate cancer diagnosis.

But we are indeed doing it on the Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyles: Making America Thin Again—MATA—and getting people to lose weight, often considerable amounts of 30, 50, 70, 130 pounds, by essentially REJECTING conventional dietary advice. What conventional pieces of dietary advice are we rejecting in order to achieve this? Here are a few: Limit fat and calories—No way. This is a path to misery. It works in the short-term, fails in the long-run and, of course, ...

Abstract Despite significant progress in our understanding of the etiology, biology and genetics of colorectal cancer, as well as important clinical advances, it remains the third most frequently diagnosed cancer worldwide and is the second leading cause of cancer death. Based on demographic projections, the global burden of colorectal cancer would be expected to rise by 72% from 1.8 million new cases in 2018 to over 3 million in 2040 with substantial increases anticipated in low and middle income countries. In this meeting report, we summarize the content of a joint workshop led by the National Cancer Institute (...
