The Good Breast Cancer Charities

As you are asked to'pink'all through October, you are advised to give to the good charities and skip the pink crap.Charities are rated by Charity Navigator and Charity Watch. These two organizations list the following as the'good'ones to give to:Charity WatchBreast Cancer Research Foundation - a grade of A+, 90% of their funds go to programs (not overhead), and it costs them $7 to raise $100.National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund - A, 83%, $13Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (Formerly Breast Cancer Fund) - A-, 77%, $13Also recommended:Cancer Research InstituteMemorial Sloan Kettering Cancer CenterPrevent Cancer Foundation Entertainment Industry Foundation'sStand Up To Cancer. Charity NavigatorBreast Cancer Foundation  - received the highest rating of four stars. National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund - three starsBreast Cancer Prevention Partners - three starsNational Breast Cancer Foundation - four stars, score 96/100, 82.9% spent on program expensesDr. Susan Love Research Foundation - four stars, 92/100, 81.9%Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation - four stars, 90.9/100, 92.1%Bay Area Cancer Connections - four starsIt's the Journey - four starsCasting for Recovery - four starsSharsheret - four starsBreastCancer.org - four starsPrevent Cancer Foundation - four starsLiving Beyond Breast Cancer - four starsAmerican Italian Cancer Foundation - four starsA special note is provided on theSusan ...

Increased rates of locoregional recurrence are observed in patients with basal-like breast cancer (BC) despite the use of radiation therapy (RT); therefore, approaches that result in radiosensitization of basal-like BC are critically needed. Using patients’ tumor gene expression data from 4 independent data sets, we correlated gene expression with recurrence to find genes significantly correlated with early recurrence after RT. The highest-ranked gene, TTK, was most highly expressed in basal-like BC across multiple data sets. Inhibition of TTK by both genetic and pharmacologic methods enhanced radiosensitivity in mul...

Publication date: April 2020Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 109Author(s): Sevinc Ilkar Erdagi, Fahanwi Asabuwa Ngwabebhoh, Ufuk YildizAbstractThe current study explores the facile fabrication of multilayer self-assembled electrostatic oil-in-water Pickering emulsions (PEs) using quaternized nanocellulose (Q-NC) and diosgenin-conjugate alginate (DGN-ALG) particles as stabilizers to form hydrocolloid nanocarriers. The conditions of formulation such as storage time, pH, temperature and salt effect on the emulsion stability were evaluated. The results deduced showed good emulsion droplet stability over a p...

AbstractFamily history of breast and related cancers can indicate increased breast cancer (BC) risk. In national familial breast cancer (FBC) guidelines, the risk is stratified to guide referral decisions. We aimed to identify characteristics associated with the recommendation for referral in a large cohort of women undergoing FBC risk assessment in a recent primary care study. Demographic, family history, psychological and behavioural factors were collected with family history questionnaires, psychological questionnaires and manual data extraction from general practice electronic health records. Participants were women ag...

This study aimed at exploring the role of α-enolase (ENO1) in proliferation, invasion, and cell apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 breast cancer human cells, to provide a theoretical basis for the clinical treatment of breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 cells were randomly divided into five groups: normal control group (Control group), negative control group (negative control virus, NC group), and shENO1 (sh1, sh2, and sh3) group, respectively. The expressions of ENO1 mRNA and protein were measured by Quantitative Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blot, respectively....

Madhu, Rajasree Shanmuganathan, Kathirvel BrindhadeviAbstractThe current study aimed at developing gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) using the aqueous extract of the medicinal plant Commiphora wightii. The phytosynthesized gold nanoparticles (Cw@AuNPs) were evaluated for their anticancer activity against MCF-7 breast cancer cell model. The formation of AuNPs by Commiphora wightii leaf extract was confirmed by UV–Visible spectra where their surface plasmon resonance was found at 533&thinsp...

In this work, a green and facile strategy was presented to fabricate flexible N,S-reduced graphene oxide film (N,S-rGOF) by respiratory mechanism of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB). The used microbial method allows us to fabricate N,S-rGOF under green and mild c...

However, the potential photochemical activity of such agents on cancerous cells is largely unknown. The nanoclusters (BSA-Au NCs) were synthetized in the presence of BSA (an average hydrodynamic diameter was about 9.4 nm,...
