Game-changing discoveries about how to harness and manipulate the immune system to fight cancer on Monday won the 2018 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for American James Allison and Japanese Tasuku Honjo. The scientists' work in the 1990s has since swiftly led to new and dramatically improved therapies for cancers such as melanoma and lung cancer, which had previously been extremely difficult to treat. "The seminal discoveries by the two Laureates constitute a landmark in our fight against cancer," the Nobel Assembly at Sweden's Karolinska Institute said as it awarded the prize of nine million Swedish crowns ($1 million). "Allison and Honjo showed how different strategies for inhibiting the brakes on the immune system can be used in the treatment of cancer," it said. The treatments, often referred to as "immune checkpoint therapy", have "fundamentally changed the outcome for certain groups of patients with advanced cancer", it added. Medicine is the first of the Nobel Prizes … [Read more...] about Medicine Nobel Awarded for Cancer Immunotherapies

A Pakistani study shows that the plum tree’s edible gum can deliver nanoparticles to target more than one disease. Natural gums are polysaccharides that dissolve in water. They are widely used in medicine and pharmaceuticals, being natural polymers that can deliver different drugs to target cells, tissues, and organs. The Sarhad University of Science and Information Technology (SUIT) study investigated plum gum loaded with stabilized … [Read more...] about Scientists look to the common plum as a potential natural remedy for cancer

These range from acting as an antibacterial agent to effectively suppressing the production of pro-inflammatory substances. But a team of researchers in China may have uncovered another potential benefit of this substance: protecting and treating women for postmenopausal osteoporosis. The investigative team chose vanillic acid because previous studies showed that it was capable of estrogenic activity. “Hence we hypothesize that [vanillic acid] may favor the anti-osteoporotic property by acting as estrogen analog. Since, estrogen plays a critical role in maintaining bone mineralization and remodeling (turnover) process via regulating the balance … [Read more...] about Sweet!
