The cancer drugs later in the development pipeline Geron will now take on the search for a partner on the stem cell program that includes not only the study of spinal cord injuries, but also cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cartilage damage. Do not enroll during Geron no new patients who decide invested in this branch of the company, so you could, say executives. It all depends on what is final agreement.

Geron’s chief financial officer, David Greenwood on Tuesday said on Tuesday said that stem cell research and development costs, if they to continue, would total about $ 25 million per year for the next few years? So the company? Has decided to oneself instead of two cancer therapies more have moved the research pipeline as stem cells and provide greater shareholder value. ‘We expect to have sufficient financial resources to achieve these important short-term value inflection points for shareholders without the need for additional capital,’said Scarlett.

About Soliris – was Soliris in March 2007 red by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as the first treatment for PNH, a rare, debilitating and life-threatening blood disease , which was approved by hemolysis, or the destruction of blood cells. In June has has approved the use of Soliris for the treatment of patients with PNH. Soliris is the first therapy approved in Europe for the treatment of PNH and was the first drug to receive EC approval under the EMEA Accelerated Assessment Procedure.

From one toPNH often strikes people in the prime of her life. With an average age of onset in the early 30s Approximately ten % of patients develop the first the first 21 years of age or younger. PNH develops without warning and can occur in men and women of all races, backgrounds and ages occur. PNH often unrecognized, with delays in diagnosis often. From one to more than 10 years The estimated median survival for PNH patients is between 10 and 15 years from the date of Diagnose.6).. About PNHPNH is a rare blood an estimated an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people in North America and Europe and, using similar prevalence estimates, potentially 1,000 patients in Japan.

The TCGA National Cancer Institute and National Human Genome Research Institute. The program started in 2006, the understanding of the molecular basis of cancer through full-scale, systematic studies on the human gene changes involved in all types of cancer. GBM is the first cancer studied under the program. A report on the full results of the study found found on the National Cancer Institute website. Niederhuber, MD NIH said in a statement. ‘There is now a dedicated cadre laboratory scientist fall this important information to new new life-saving therapies and diagnostics for cancer. ‘.

The study appears in the first June 2009 edition of Cancer Research, the peer-reviewed journal for the American Association for Cancer Research. ‘That was not before known that intestinal inflammation damages that are found throughout the body causes,’said Schiestl, the study’s senior. ‘This may help explain how inflammation causes these cancers. ‘.

Also DNA samples collected from men with the purpose of the investigation of the common polymorphisms in genes to reproductive hormone production and action. The current report is the first one of these studies, and it was focused on the distribution and endocrine and phenotypic effects of common polyglutamine repeat polymorphism in exon 1 of the androgen receptor . It is now known, 2878 activity of AR activity of AR and variants with more repeats encode functionally less active receptor protein. The correlations of this polymorphism with various endocrine and phenotypic features of the men have been extensively studied. But not all of of these studies show an inverse correlation of repeat length with androgenicity, which suggests that men with longer repeats have weaker overall androgen action. Found the phenotypes correlate directly with the CAG length are poor spermatogenesis and male-to-female transsexualism. Shorter repeats prostate cancer prostate cancer, adverse plasma lipid profile and male pattern alopecia related. Regarding circulating sex hormone levels or bone density no consistent correlations have been found. While many of the previous studies were too weak to detect small differences and may have cause for these conflicting results. Continue reading

When a cancer to by his birth place other metastasizes, it is not necessarily that the cells suddenly mobile and metastasis in a position, through the blood or lymph to float new houses. Indeed, these by the blood through the blood a patient floats for quite some time, and only occurs if one of these cells intrepid finally in the place where it is installed lungs lungs.

‘For over a decade we have known that the biggest challenge in the treatment of bladder cancer is the treatment or prevention of metastatic form of the disease, this study represents an advance in the latter. Spread of spread of bladder cancer in the lungs, we could improve the survival of patients, ‘says Dan Theodorescu, director of the University of Colorado Cancer Center, the paper ‘s senior author.

Testing for a Palladin gene mutation in families, Pancreatic cancer inherit potential . However, genetic testing is not likely for non-hereditary or sporadic pancreatic cancer useful. Brentnall and her team are hoping for a screening blood test for pancreatic cancer developed using the Palladin protein, as well as treatments that target mutations in Palladin . In addition, show first signs that the study of Palladin may also shed light on how and why other common cancers as well. More information about genetic testing are available at.

Pancreatic cancer is generally a fatal diagnosis. One of the deadliest cancers, it is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths overall , and third most common cause of cancer deaths in people aged 40 to 60 in the United States. Most people with the disease within a year of diagnosis kills about 95 % of patients die within five years. Researchers estimate that at least ten % of all pancreatic cancer cases are inherited. Substantiallyhe discovery also shows that the Palladin gene behaves abnormally both hereditary and non-hereditary or sporadic forms of pancreatic cancer. Previous studies by co-author Dr. Carol Otey, associate professor of physiology at the University of North Carolina , have shown when the Palladin gene working properly, there is a cell ‘s shape and enables the cell to move. In the case of pancreatic cancer, provides a mutation in the cell Palladin move much more rapidly than normal, substantially invasion of surrounding healthy tissues. Continue reading
