What Are Common Gastrointestinal Polyposes in Children?
Discussion Bloody stools or blood in the diaper is a relatively common complaint in general pediatrics. For most patients it is often a minor concern. Commonly it is a transient problem (e.g. rectal fissure caused by constipation or trauma) or often not blood (e.g. urate crystals in the diaper, food, menses, etc.). Real blood does occur with an identifiable cause such as long distance running or heavy exercise, or milk protein allergy/sensitivity that improves with a milk-restricted diet. Many more serious causes are associated with heavier or more recalcitrant bleeding, increased defecation, abdominal pain, poor eating an...

Pancreatic cancer: The sign to spot when laying horizontally – ‘eased by sitting forward’
PANCREATIC cancer has one of the lowest survival rates. Sadly, around five percent of patients with the condition survive for 10 or more years. However, 37 percent of cases are preventable. The sooner a person acts, the better their chances of survival. One symptom to look out for, is in your back. (Source: Daily Express - Health)

Signaling mechanisms in pancreatic cancer cells could provide new target for treatment
Research led by scientists at theUCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center provides new insights into molecular “crosstalk” in pancreas cancer cells. The study, published in the journal Cell Reports, identifies vulnerabilities that could provide a target for therapeutic drugs already being studied for several different types of cancer. It was led by Dr. Caius Radu, a UCLA professor of molecular and medical pharmacology, and Dr. Timothy Donahue, a pancreatic cancer surgeon.The study centered  on an immune system signaling molecule that impairs the proliferation of cancer cells in lab studies but tends to have the oppos...

NCI Opens New Immunotherapy Clinical Trial for Mesothelioma
This study offers a reasonable chance of benefit. It would be nice to see if these patients again respond to immunotherapy.” The FDA approved Opdivo and Yervoy, an immunotherapy combination, for first-line treatment of pleural mesothelioma in 2020. It was the first new systemic approval in more than 16 years. However, it only increased the median overall survival time from 14.1 months to 18.1 months, when compared to standard chemotherapy.

Science Saturday: Identifying inherited gene mutations in pancreatic cancer can lead to targeted therapies, better survival
A new Mayo Clinic study finds 1 in 6 people with pancreatic cancer harbor inherited genetic mutations. Identifying hereditary gene mutations in pancreatic cancer can help determine individualized treatments and potentially prolong survival, according to new Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine research. In the study, which was published in Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology, nearly 1 in 6 people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer were found to have an inherited cancer-related gene mutation that likely predisposed… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)
