Who's To Blame For The High Cost Of Cancer Care (The Federal Government Or Justin Bieber?)

Although cancer care is increasingly becoming hospital or health system based, merger mania in oncology is probably not driven primarily as a way for hospitals to gain access to discounted drugs. Broader forces are at play.

Authors: Isaacsson Velho P, Carducci MA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite the heterogeneity of prostate cancer (PCa), androgen stimulation is fundamental to its development, growth and lethality. Therefore, the blockade of androgen receptor (AR) signaling is critical to controlling the disease, even after progression with castrate levels of androgens. Areas covered: We review the current understanding of new ways to block the AR, using novel antiandrogen inhibitors, which act on different parts of the AR signaling pathway in PCa. We also review new approaches, such as the use of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inh...

 Back in February, MD+DI got the low down from an obstetrics and gynecologist specialist in Lubbock, TX on a new vaginal rejuvenation device that her patients have been raving about.  Now it seems the manufacturer of that particular device, along with other companies selling laser- or energy-based devices for vaginal rejuvenation failed to get FDA's blessing. "We've recently become aware of a growing number of manufacturers marketing 'vaginal rejuvenation' devices to women and claiming these procedures will treat conditions and symptoms related to menopause, urinary incontinence, or...

The story began a year ago, as did my divorce, but I will try my best to explain my relationship with Blake Chadick, as it was a major impact on me this past year, waiting for my divorce to be finalized.  I realize my blog is reading backwards at the moment, but should only be several entries or so.First of all, he's married.  He said his wife Melissa was very sick from the radiation treatment she received when she had colon (among other) cancers in 2011.  She slept half of the day, was in the the bathroom for the other half, and had a medication the constipated her for about 2 hours a day so she could be ac...

For sensitive and selective detection, the anodic pole of the bipolar electrode was modified with the AS1411 aptamer, a specific aptamer for the nucleolin, and treated by the secondary aptamer modified gold nanoparticles. The...

Conclusion: The present study suggests sCTLA-4 levels are not affected by a polymorphism at + 49 A>G CTLA-4. Hence, levels of CTLA-4 are similar in both CaCx cases and control group.

Publication date: Available online 3 August 2018Source: Seminars in Cancer BiologyAuthor(s): Gwenola Manic, Antonella Sistigu, Francesca Corradi, Martina Musella, Ruggero De Maria, Ilio VitaleAbstractCancer stem cells (CSCs) are subpopulations of multipotent stem cells (SCs) responsible for the initiation, long-term clonal maintenance, growth and spreading of most human neoplasms. Reportedly, CSCs share a very robust DNA damage response (DDR) with embryonic and adult SCs, which allows them to survive endogenous and exogenous genotoxins. A range of experimental evidence indicates that CSCs have high but heterogeneous levels...
