New therapy for aggressive blood cancer discovered
(University of Veterinary Medicine -- Vienna) Researchers at Vetmeduni Vienna and Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Cancer Research have identified a new therapeutic strategy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia. They found that the activity of the mutated oncogenic protein C/EBPα is dependent on MLL1 histone methyltransferase complex. Laboratory tests showed that functional perturbation of MLL1 complex led to death of AML cells with C/EBPα mutations. Inhibitor treatment released the differentiation block of cancer cells and restored normal maturation of blood cells. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

The polyvagal theory was developed by Stephen Porges and presented to the Society for Psychophysiological Research in 1994. The theory takes into account how our autonomic nervous system is constantly working to keep us safe. Very simply, the components are our ...
