Narrow Mindedness

I realize that a lot of academia, where medical research often happens, primarily uses Apple computers - desktops, iPads, and iPhones. However just because they use iPhones doesn't mean anyone else does. Hence the problem.I received an email recruiting women for a study by the Army of Women on theRelationships among Cognitive Function, Lifestyle, and Exercise after Cancer Treatment (ReFLECT+). I said great. Let me see if I can sign up. I greatly appreciate what the Army of Women does and support them wholly. But I can't believe the narrow mindedness as part of their study.As they recruit for non-white participants, they gave themselves a big obstacle. Look at who can participate:You can join the Relationships among Cognitive Function, Lifestyle, and Exercise after Cancer Treatment (ReFLECT+) study if you match ALL of these MAIN categories:You are a woman age 21 or olderYou have been diagnosed with breast cancer at any time in your life. Women who have not undergone treatment, are currently undergoing treatment, or who have completed treatment are eligible to participate in this study.You have access to an iPhoneYou live in the United StatesYou self-identify as a racial/ethnic minority such as but not limited to African American, Hispanic/Latina, Asian, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, or more than one raceYou have to have an iPhone. I googled this and iPhone usage is around 15% of the country." However, its market share fell from 14.8% i...

(Cancer Research UK) A new type of scan that involves magnetizing molecules allows doctors to see in real-time which regions of a breast tumor are active, according to research funded by Cancer Research UK and published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences today. This is the first time researchers have demonstrated that this scanning technique, called carbon-13 hyperpolarized imaging, can be used to monitor breast cancer.

(University of Zurich) An imaging approach developed at UZH enables the study of breast cancer tissue in greater detail. It uses 35 biomarkers to identify the different cell types in breast tumors and its surrounding area compared to the current standard of testing single markers. This increases the precision of tumor analysis and classification - and improves personalized diagnostics for breast cancer patients.

Contributors : Girieca Lorusso ; Curzio RueggSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Mus musculusWe recently established an orthotopic breast cancer model of brain metastasis based on the injection of murine breast cancer cell lines into the mammary fat pad. This model is based on the use of 4T1 murine breast carcinoma cells. 4T1-derived tumors recapitulate the main steps of human breast cancer progression, including epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and metastases to lung and lymph nodes.Bioluminescence imaging revealed the appearance of secondary lesions to the lung and lymph nodes and sporadically to th...
