Scientists 'reverse engineer' brain cancer cells to find new targets for treatment
(University of Toronto - Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy) Glioblastoma is one of the most devastating forms of cancer, with few existing treatment options. It is also a leading cause of cancer-related death in children and young adults. Scientists have 'reverse engineered' brain cancer stem cells gene by gene, uncovering multiple potential targets for this hard-to-treat cancer. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

‘The City I Love Is Making People Sick.’ London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Making Polluters Pay
Two years before he became mayor of London in 2016, Sadiq Khan ran the capital’s famous marathon. He’d been healthy his whole life, but while training for the race, he found he had trouble breathing. He went to the doctor, who diagnosed him with adult onset asthma. It was bad news in a city like London, he says, where air pollution has been known to trigger or worsen the disease, sending four people to hospital everyday. Though you might not think of toxic air while walking down London’s tree-lined streets on a clear spring day, the capital has breached the legal annual air pollution limit every year sinc...

The FDA Is Investigating a Possible Link Between Vaping and Seizures
E-cigarettes are often thought of as a less dangerous alternative to cigarettes, since they contain fewer lung-cancer-causing chemicals. But preliminary research has also shown health risks associated with nicotine-rich e-cigarettes, including a higher probability of heart and lung problems. Now, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting Americans to a new potential health risk. Using e-cigarettes, also known as vaping, may be associated with seizures, especially among young people, the FDA announced Wednesday. The agency said it has received 35 reports of seizures following e-cigarette use since 2010. While the F...

During his tenure of just under two years, Dr. Gottlieb introduced a number of initiatives, including one aimed at aggressively regulating teenage vaping, reducing nicotine in cigarettes to non-addictive levels and banning menthol in cigarettes. He also oversaw the approval of a record number of new medicines, generic drugs and medical devices. Yet his departure leaves many questions unanswered, especially those that impact the med...

Science and health for all children with cancer
Each year ~429,000 children and adolescents aged 0 to 19 years are expected to develop cancer. Five-year survival rates exceed 80% for the 45,000 children with cancer in high-income countries (HICs) but are less than 30% for the 384,000 children in lower-middle-income countries (LMICs). Improved survival rates in HICs have been achieved through multidisciplinary care and research, with treatment regimens using mostly generic medicines and optimized risk stratification. Children’s outcomes in LMICs can be improved through global collaborative partnerships that help local leaders adapt effective treatments to local res...

How Common Is Unintentional Cannabis Ingestion?
Discussion “[Cannabis] is a genus of flowering plant with three main varieties: sativa, indica and ruderalis.” It has been used for hundreds of years for hemp or fiber and also for psychoactive and medicinal effects. The active compounds are collectively called cannabinoids, of which delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the most abundant. The floral buds or calyxes of the plant have the most cannabinoids, but other parts of the plant are also used such as leaves. Hash oil, hashish (or resin) and marijuana (dried leaves) are the common products from strongest to least strongest products. ...

In an International Journal of Cancer study of adolescents who were followed for 37 years, researchers observed a trend for higher RCC risk with increasing body mass index during adolescence, where one-unit increase in body mass index conferred a six percent increased risk of RCC.

How much each of those factors contribute to cancer is less clear.” Obesity is ...

The vast majority of cancers do not have one obvious cause, making them complex both to understand and treat.

Armed with this knowledge, experts have for decades stressed the importance of regular cervical cancer screenings, which can catch HPV infections and related abnormalities before they develop into deadly disease. And yet many women still don’t get tested as much as they should. The screening rate isn’t entirely clear. A study publis...
