Research starts for pancreatic and lungGeorgia Tech and St. Joseph’s Hospital have joined in the first regional research program to begin the genetics and cell biology of pancreatic cancer study. Tissue and serum samples from patients with cancer are tested to identify the differences in the genetic and cellular functions between normal and tumor cells. Findings from this research will be used for the ultimate goal of the development of tests for the early detection and identification of specific, targeted therapies for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Saint Joseph’s and Georgia Tech plan on expanding collaborative research to lung cancer in April, as well as prostate and colon cancer in the coming months.The results demonstrate of social support Distress Levels After Blood and Marrow Stem Cell TransplantResearchers at the John Theurer Cancer Center recently published a study, the demarcation of the link between social support distress after stem cell transplant.

In recent years, the research in relation to intestinal hormones, such as peptide YY and glucagon-like peptide , as shown also release after a meal acts on the brain and induces satiety and meal termination . So far, concentrations of appetite hormones were not investigated in the context of different rates of eating. – In this study the subjects , the same test meal, 300ml ice, consumed at different speeds. Researchers took blood samples for the measurement of glucose, insulin, plasma lipids and gut hormones before the meal and at 30 minute intervals after the beginning of eating, until the end of the session, 210 minutes later. The researchers found that subjects who took the full 30 minutes the ice cream the ice cream had higher concentrations of PYY and GLP-1 and also tend to have higher fullness rating.

Other researchers involved in the study include Kleopatra Alexiadou, Nicholas Tentolouris, Despoina Kyriaki, Despoina Perr and Nicholas Katsilambros of Athens University Medical School in Greece, and Carel le Roux, Royce Vincent Mohammad Ghatei and Stephen Bloom of Imperial College London, United Kingdom. – The article Eating slowly increases the postprandial response of the anorexigenic good hormone, peptide YY and glucagon like peptide-1 will appear in the January 2010 issue of JCEM.

HER2 receptors promoting normal cell growth, and is found in small amounts in normal breast cells. But HER2-positive breast cancer cells contain many more receptors than usual, promoting a particularly aggressive type of tumor that 20 to 30 % of all patients are affected with breast cancer.

We are now working on methods that can be used to those medications every patient every patient , the tumor can be identified.
