Year round pinkification

Estee Lauder is going to new lengths to create year round pinkificaiton. In October 2014, they will offer story telling videos of four families facing breast cancer.

The first is that with breast cancer its a year round diagnosis, not just one month of the year. That is clearly been a complaint for decades. But the other is their multimillion dollar campaign won't fit into one month. I am sure they could have made it fit into one month but it doesn't really impress me yet.There will be personal touches through the storytelling.... "The company plans to add a personal touch through storytelling, via documentary-style online videos featuring four real-life families affected by the disease. Viewers are also encouraged to upload their own videos and stories, which may be featured on the site in the future."Will that include the hairless body and rushing to the bathroom. And maybe they will get extra Estee Lauder makeup to cover the chemo pallor."Some of the donations will also come straight from the company's own pocket.  The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will receive portions of sales from 15 "Pink Ribbon" products with brand names like Aveda, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, La Mer, Origins, and Estée Lauder itself.

Publication date: Available online 22 January 2020Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Yaqiu Wang, Can Liu, Zhihui Xie, Hong LuAbstractTripartite motif (TRIM) protein family is a group of proteins, which belongs to RING family of ubiquitin E3 ligases. TRIM proteins are involved in oncogenesis, while the roles in different cancers are controversial. However, the expression pattern and biological functions of TRIM47 in breast cancer remain unclear. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the function of TRIM47 in the progression and metastasis of breast cancer. TRIM47 was found to be significantly up-regul...

ConclusionsXJR played an important role in anti-BC through multi-component, multi-target and multi-pathway mechanisms, in which quercetin and ursolic acid may be the key active components. The anticancer effect of multi-component application was better than that of a single component. This study not only deepened our understanding of the role of TCM in the prevention and treatment of diseases, but also provided a reference for the in-depth research, development and application of the ancient medicine.Graphical abstract
