By inducing these tumors in mice, Wagers says the scientists knew were in the mice and in the body where they develop, would be helping them to better understand the molecular and genetic pathways underlying disease form. With this knowledge researchers may be able to new intervention strategies interfere interfere with these genetic activities and stop. The growth of this type of tumor The sophisticated system that we developed, we can find new fragile points in the tumor target, says first author Simone Hettmer, a pediatric oncologist at the Dana-Farber/Children ‘s Hospital Cancer Center, who treats children with these tumors. Moreover, she adds, the system allows scientists to look at the genetic changes in sarcomas and how they interact with the development of tumors and sarcomas can be applied in tissues other than skeletal muscle..

In addition to determining funding for the Ryan White CARE Act, the Subcommittee proposed an increase of only $ 145 million to the National Institutes of Health and Centers for cutting funds Disease Control and Prevention. ‘The prevention and care situation is getting more dire Funds are encourage promote HIV prevention and funding must be increased to accommodate the growing number of customers and costs needs to provide medical care, support and life-saving drugs. Said Marylin Merida, president of the AIDS Institute.

The number of new people need services is growing due to an intensive and successful efforts by the administration to to increase HIV testing. Medicaid cuts in the state and federal levels only add to to cases already overburdened Ryan White CARE Act programs. .. . There are several reasons why the funding is needed for important and critical life-saving programs of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS resources Emergency Act so Copello.

‘. Metastatic melanoma prognosis prognosis and is one of the most common causes of cancer death in young patients, ‘said Keith Flaherty, Director of Developmental Therapeutics says Massachusetts General Hospital cancer Center, lead author of the NEJM article. ‘Until now, available therapies unreliable unreliable, so these findings can really change the outlook for patients whose tumors are this mutation this mutation. ‘.

New therapy promising for metastatic melanomaThe Phase 1 clinical trial? had 87 patients, was designed to test effective doses.While looking at genes in cancer patients in 2002, researchers found that 40 to 60 % of melanomas and 7 to 8 % of all cancers, a protein BRAF mutation was present known. With this mutation? the protein is? overreactive what to grow cancer cells. When researchers announced this targeted BRAF mutation using a drug as PLX4032, it stabilizes the mutation, shrink tumors and slow the progression of the disease in 81 % of patients treated.

Supply And DemandIn a study published in Cell Metabolism, scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory discovered in Heidelberg, Germany, that ensure a group of proteins named IRPs that iron balance is maintained and as such are for cell survival. In particular , they found that IRPs required for the functioning of the mitochondria of the cell energy factories.

– Mice whose liver cells can not produce IRPs from liver failure a few days after birth, die, says Bruno Galy, Staff Scientist in Matthias Hentze group at EMBL who cited the work: The mitochondria in the cells have structural defects do not function properly do not function properly because they do not have enough iron. .. Mitochondria need iron to function, days after birth to convert iron into other chemical forms in the cell: iron – sulfur clusters and haem one of the components of hemoglobin. Continue reading
