    Dr. George Diaz — About a week into his course he got worse developed pneumonia. At that point given the reports we had gotten out of China… At that point we elected to give him… the experimental Remdesivir, antiviral medication. And within 24 hours he improved significantly. This was quite encouraging and he improved and thereafter remained without fever and felt much better. Over the next few days he improved to where we thought he could be discharged at home under the care of the local health district. Arthel Neville: And you said you used, I believe an experimental anti-viral...

    Ammonia bromine, known to “Mucosolvan”, is a respiratory lubrication phlegm medicine clinically commonly used in acute and chronic bronchitis and other diseases. Now, Chinese scientists have discovered the potential to treat a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) through artificial intelligence drug target screening. The results came from Wang Yuedan and the team of Chu Ming of Peking University’s School of Basic Medicine.On January 25, the team announced that after learning about the functional receptors of the new coronavirus 2019-nCoV, it used an independently developed artificial intelligence drug target screening system, focusing on 2,674 drugs already on the market and 1,500 Chinese...
  • Israeli Researchers Develop Treatment that Prompts Self-Destruction of Pancreatic Cancer Cells

    Isreali researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) found a molecule that can induce the self-destruction of pancreatic cancer cells. The research was conducted in human pancreatic cancer that was transplanted into mice. The mice were treated with a molecule called PJ34, which affects human cancer cells. This molecule causes an anomaly during the duplication of human cancer cells and prompts their self-destruction, and the treated cells died during their multiplication process. The treatment reduced the number of cancer cells by 90% in the developed tumors a month after it was administered. Pancreatic cancer is resistant to all existing treatments and...
  • Engineer Finds Way to Pull Diseases From Blood Using Magnets

    A British engineer has found a way to filter unwanted cells from blood using magnets — and his tool could be used in clinical trials as soon as next year.Thanks to existing research, biochemical scientist George Frodsham knew it was possible to force magnetic nanoparticles to bind to specific cells in the body. But while other researchers did so primarily to make those cells show up in images, he wondered whether the same technique might allow doctors to remove unwanted cells from the blood.“When someone has a tumour you cut it out,” he told The Telegraph. “Blood cancer is a tumour...
  • Two new drugs finally hit ‘undruggable’ cancer target, providing hope for treatments

    Cancer researchers are making progress toward a goal that has eluded them for more than 30 years: shrinking tumors by shutting off a protein called KRAS that drives growth in many cancer types. A new type of drug aimed at KRAS made tumors disappear in mice and shrank tumors in lung cancer patients, two companies report in papers published this week. It’s not yet clear whether the drugs will extend patients’ lives, but the results are generating a wave of excitement. And one company, Amgen, reports an unexpected bonus: Its drug also appears to stimulate the immune system to attack...
  • New blood filtering system could draw disease from the body using magnets

    An award-winning engineer has developed a new technology that could draw deadly infections such as malaria and sepsis from the body using magnets. ================================================================ George Frodsham designed the blood filtering system whilst studying how magnetic nanoparticles can bind to cells to make them detectable during imaging. He realized that if the nanoparticles can be made to magnetize cells so that they show up on scanners, it should also be possible to use them to draw cells from the blood. “In theory, you can go after almost anything” Theoretically, any bacteria, virus, or blood cancer, such as leukemia, could be bound...

    TAMPA, Fla. (FOX 13) - A 3-year-old cancer patient must undergo chemotherapy over the next 28 days despite the wishes of his parents, a Tampa judge ruled Wednesday afternoon. But she did not make a decision about treatment options after that. The ruling marks the latest twist in the case of Noah McAdams, who was was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia back in April. After two rounds of chemotherapy, his parents Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland decided they wanted to try a more natural, holistic approach. When they failed to show up for a chemo appointment at All Children’s Hospital...

    Sally joined a trial at Baylor College of Medicine using a therapy called CAR T. First, doctors removed some of Sally's T-cells, infection fighting white blood cells, and genetically modified them to recognize her sarcoma cancer as being enemy cells that should be destroyed. Millions of those new cells were then put back in Sally's body, ready to search out and destroy the cancer. Of 10 patients, three have stable disease and two, including Naser, have no evidence of cancer. Two CAR T therapies are already FDA approved for forms of leukemia and lymphoma. The next hurdle is proving it...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Could the secret to eternal youth be found in blood transfusions from young people? Some claim that transfusions with “young blood” from teenagers can reverse the aging process. It’s being tested in patients over the age of 35 as part of a clinical trial called ambrosia, where people paid $8,000 to get the rich growth factors found in bloods plasma platelets. “There are pretty much people from most states, people from overseas, people from Europe and Australia,” Dr. Jesse Karmazin said. Results of the trial have not been published. Dr. Karmazin, who plans to open a business...

  • Is It A Shameful Medical Hoax or a Long-Awaited Miracle Treatment For Stroke Victims?

    The Institute of Neurological Recovery (INR), located in Boca Raton,FL, claims that they have developed a patented treatment that can reverse stroke symptoms. Their claim is accompanied by many YouTube videos that show the almost miraculous recovery by stroke victims, Alzheimer patients and Sciatica sufferers. The procedure is not covered by Medicare or any other health insurance agency that I know of.

    Activating T cells in tumors eliminated even distant metastases in mice, Stanford researchers found. Lymphoma patients are being recruited to test the technique in a clinical trial. Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found.

  • The first effective therapy against glioblastoma by attacking telomeres

    Blocking TRF1 interrupts tumor growth and increases survival in various mouse models of glioblastoma. This is a potential therapeutic option for a disease for which there are no curative treatments. The Telomere and Telomerase Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) has shown that it is possible to block the growth of human and murine glioblastoma in mouse models by blocking the TRF1 protein; an essential component of the telomere-protective complex known as shelterin. The study, published in Cancer Cell, describes a new and promising way to combat this type of brain tumour, considered one of the most...

    Christiana Briganti-Dunn is a civil engineer who oversees design-build projects for the Virginia Department of Transportation, but two years ago, she found herself holding a set of paint swatches up against a wall like a homeowner planning a kitchen renovation. The wall was at Chapman Mill, a five-story stone gristmill built in the 18th century near Broad Run, Va. Christiana’s job was to pick colors that would be painted on a set of bridge abutments on nearby Interstate 66. Everyone wanted the bridges to look pretty. “When we were meeting with the communities of Haymarket and western Prince William County,...

    A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors 'shocked' his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as 'unexpected' and 'exciting' because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.
