Fair vote on the issue of limiting non – economic damage awards.. In recent years, the Pennsylvania Medical Society, said our state medical liability insurance crisis is complex and work to on patient safety, insurance issues and legal reforms. Unfortunately, through a coordinated and well-funded national campaign groups and trial lawyers who own them have always denied access problems exist, and they have maintained that there is no such thing as lawsuit abuse. Instead, injury lawyers selected attack doctors and their patients, while blaming of the resulting high insurance premiums in any but himself denied their efforts Pennsylvanians.

Now independent groups have confirmed what doctors and patients have said for a long time. Patients lose access to basic complex and broken liability system care. Continue reading

– ‘We have found in a mouse model of the disease that there is a certain defect in neuronal function in the early stages of the disease, even before the death of neurons,’said lead author Vikram G. Shakkottai, Assistant Professor UM Department of Neurology. – ‘With further study, we that the that the early neuronal dysfunction, neuronal loss, could be relevant to understanding the motor problems in a broader range of ataxias. ‘.. In a paper published this week in the the Journal of Neuroscience, UM researchers found that a particular dysfunction in neurons occurs even before the death of neurons, which is typical for this ataxia. The dysfunction, a change in neuronal discharge, could be a target for potential treatments.

Since the 1970s, studies have reported in the U.S. And abroad, a lower than average risk of lung cancer for textile workers. Furthermore, studies have shown that the employees have in other professions with high endotoxin exposure, as dairy farmers reduced lung cancer risk as well. Although many researchers thought endotoxin with a reduced risk of lung cancer may be associated, no previous studies had quantified the relationship between endotoxin exposure and lung cancer risk.

Astrakianakis George, from the University of Washington in Seattle and colleagues compared the endotoxin exposure of 628 female cotton textile workers in Shanghai, about 7.6 diagnosed with lung cancer with a group of 3,184 female workers without lung cancer who were matched by age to the cancer patients. They appreciated the labor movement endotoxin exposure in textile factories based on their measurements of cotton dust exposure, the labor movement the labor movement jobs and duration of employment..

Adenovirus is is a DNA virus is widely used in cancer therapy, but which liver disease in mice. Professor Len Seymour and colleagues found that the introduction sites in the viral genome, that are recognized by microRNA 122 leads to hepatic degradation of important viral mRNA, and thereby reduces the virus to affect of the liver of the liver, while maintaining their ability to replicate in and kill tumor cells cells.

Although the current tumor – killing virus is useful in mice, the transfer of technology in the clinical setting will require re-engineering of the virus to virus diseases in humans seen to overcome and at least two at least two years before they can be tested in the hospitals. Or, or preparation of the manuscript.. Tumor killing replicating viruses are a hot topic in the biotherapeutics arena, with many ongoing clinical trials worldwide. Professor Seymour that group to set out and a mechanism a mechanism whereby wild type virus potency could be maintained in tumor cells, but the virus could be ‘ turned off ‘ in tissues vulnerable to pathology adds important information to the current base of knowledge. ‘This approach is surprisingly effective and very versatile, it could be a number of applications in controlling the activity of therapeutic viruses, both for cancer research and also a new generation of conditionally replicating vaccines, where the vaccine is pathogen engineering disabled in its primary sites of toxicity, ‘said Professor Seymour says.

The drug combination was also effective in an aggressive model of spontaneous pancreatic cancer in mice.The compound JP1201 in 2004 by UT Southwestern researchers created the effect the action of a protein called Smac. The researchers discovered Smac in 2000 and found that this protein plays an important role in the normal self-destruction process in each cell further researches . Or apoptosis, is activated when a cell must be terminated when a cell is defective or no longer available for the normal growth and development are required. In cancer cells, this self-destruct mechanism is disturbed and lead to breaks in the cell death cascade of events. The synthetic Smac, or Smac mimetic, developed at UT Southwestern inhibits these breaks so that the cell dying. In essence, we have inhibition are an inhibitor, Brekken said. And we are the apoptotic cascade at the start, resulting in the death of cancer cells. – as well as UT Southwestern researchers with Smac mimetics in breast and lung cancer research. Brekken said the next step was to develop a connection on JP1201 tested tested in human clinical trials is.

– Editorial A report on MA plans published in February by the Government Accountability Office has provided more evidence that these plans are a bad deal because they cost taxpayers more per recipient for some services than traditional Medicare and pad the profits of insurance companies a Des Moines Register editorial.
