FDA Cracks Down on Fake Mesothelioma Treatments
Stories abound of a “cancer-curing” tea from the forests of Canada. Herbal blends claim to “attack cancer at the DNA level.” For many years, mesothelioma patients have turned to alternative medicines like these as treatment options for the rare asbestos-related cancer. Sometimes these options are a last resort, after traditional treatments fail. They may be used in conjunction with standard treatment (complementary medicine) or on their own as the main approach. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued warning letters to companies that manufacture or market products claimin...

Why is breast cancer common but heart cancer rare?
Malignant cancers strike certain organs, such as the colon or breast, more often than others. In an Opinion publishing August 9 in Trends in Cancer, researchers propose that this vulnerability in some organs may be due to natural selection. Humans can tolerate tumors in large or paired organs more easily than in small, critical organs, (Source: World Pharma News)

Why is breast cancer common but heart cancer rare?
Malignant cancers strike certain organs, such as the colon or breast, more often than others. Researchers propose that this vulnerability in some organs may be due to natural selection. Humans can tolerate tumors in large or paired organs more easily than in small, critical organs, such as the heart, and so the larger organs may have evolved fewer mechanisms to defend against cancerous cells.

Inscribing Optical Excitability to Non-Excitable Cardiac Cells: Viral Delivery of Optogenetic Tools in Primary Cardiac Fibroblasts
We describe in detail a method to introduce optogenetic actuation tools, a mutant version of channelrhodopsin-2, ChR2(H134R), and archaerhodopsin (ArchT), into primary cardiac fibroblasts (cFB) in vitro by adenoviral infection to yield quick, robust, and consistent expression. Instructions on adjusting infection parameters such as the multiplicity of infection and virus incubation duration are provided to generalize the method for different lab settings or cell types. Specific conditions are discussed to create hybrid co-cultures of the optogenetically modified cFB and non-transformed cardiomyocytes to obtain light-sensiti...

When heart cancer hides in the brain
(ecancermedicalscience) The 59-year-old woman had complained of chest pain and shortness of breath. A biopsy revealed that she had an unusual type of 'heart cancer' called cardiac lymphoma. But a week after receiving treatment, the patient developed a headache and her motor skills began to deteriorate. Fortunately, doctors at the institute had seen a similar strange case just two years before. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Class, ancestry and medication are factors in cardiac risk for lupus patients
New research published in Rheumatology, the international, peer-reviewed scientific journal, has suggested that systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients of African descent and from lower socioeconomic groups face a higher risk of primary cardiac disease. However, those taking anti-malarial drugs reduce their risk.The research found that 14% of patients experience cardiac problems as a result of the auto-immune disorder within five years of diagnosis.
