Deshaies (Amgen) 3: Targeting the ubiquitin-proteasome system in cancer
Part 1: A primer on the ubiquitin-proteasome system: The ubiquitin-proteasome system is one of the principal means of degrading misfolded, mutated, or unwanted proteins in the cell. Part 2: Cullin-RING ubiquitin ligases: Over 200 types of cullin-RING ubiquitin ligases are formed by interchanging subunits. This carefully regulated system allows for great substrate specificity. Part 3: Targeting the ubiquitin-proteasome system in cancer: The ubiquitin-proteasome system is overworked in mutation-ridden cancer cells making it a potential target for anti-cancer drugs. https://www.ibiology.org/ibioseminars/cell-biology/targeting-ubiquitin-proteasome-system-cancer-proteotoxic-crisis-hypothesis.html Talk Overview: Neurons, blood cells and muscle cells have distinct morphologies and functions because they have different proteomes or collections of proteins. The proteome is maintained through the synthesis and degradation of different proteins.  In his first talk, Dr. Deshaies explains that the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) is the principal means of degrading proteins in the cytosol and therefore is key to maintaining the proteome.  Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be added to, or removed from, other proteins altering their function or targeting them for degradation. Deshaies describes the multiple mechanisms for regulating ubiquitin ligase activity and the importance of protein degradation in many cell signaling pathways and in the removal of defective proteins.   In Part 2, Deshaies delves more deeply into a specific group of ubiquitin ligases, the cullin-RING ligases (CRLs). By rearranging the subunits of CRLs in a combinatorial process, it is possible to generate more than 200 of these enzymes each with a specific substrate.  The formation and activity of CRL complexes in the cell is regulated by the conjugation/deconjugation (Nedd8) or binding/dissociation (Cand1) of other proteins to the CRL complex, and this, in turn, is influenced by the binding of substrate to CRL. This carefully regulated mechanism allows cells to match the level and specificity of ubiquitin ligation to the level of particular substrates in the cell. In many types of cancer, cells have a very high rate of mutation.  These mutated proteins are frequently less stable than normal proteins and need to be degraded by the UPS. In addition, cancer cells are often aneuploid leading to the overexpression of certain proteins. These extra proteins also need to be degraded by the UPS. In both cases, the UPS in cancer cells is overworked.  This suggests that cancer cells should be less able to tolerate inhibition of the UPS than normal cells.  In his last talk, Deshaies describes strategies to develop cancer drugs based on inhibition of the UPS. Speaker Biography: At the time that this video was recorded, Dr. Raymond Deshaies was a Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Deshaies will be transitioning to a new position as Senior Vice President for Discovery Research at Amgen, in 2017. Deshaies received his BS in biochemistry from Cornell University and his PhD, also in biochemistry, from the University of California, Berkeley.  It was as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, San Francisco, that Deshaies found that a cell cycle protein he was investigating was modified by the addition of ubiquitin.  This began a career-long interest in the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in regulating protein homeostasis, both in normal cell function and in diseases such as cancer. Deshaies has received numerous awards for his outstanding research.  He has been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2007), as a Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2011) and as a Member of the US National Academy of Sciences (2016).

Innovative Liver Cancer Research
Canadian Liver Foundation partners with Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation to fund $1.2 M research project. Primary liver cancer is not only one of the fastest rising but also one of the deadliest forms of cancer in Canada. Due to late diagnosis and disease severity, more than half of all liver cancer patients cannot be effectively treated with current therapies. In part this is because there are cells in the cancers that shield them from the body’s immune system. These cells are called tumour-associated macrophages (TAMs). If these cells could be targeted and destroyed, the cancers will be more vulnerable to being eliminated by the body’s immune system or by standard chemotherapy. Led by Dr. McGilvray, this multidisciplinary team will use nanotechnology to target and destroy TAMs. Nanotechnology uses tiny engineered particles (called nanoparticles) that can carry and deliver drugs. Using this technology, they hope to develop and test a new treatment option for patients diagnosed with liver cancer.

Life creation, life extension and alternative life forms
Are humans becoming a creative force that creates life from dead matter? Exploring new life forms, extending our life span tremendously, or even rejuvenating...it is now, at reach. Especially if we grow our own new organs thanks to stemcell research: will we become super evolved life forms with enhanced features and an extended life span? Original Title: The mind of the universe Lee Cronin, creator of alternative life: Non-biological life, you would say that this is impossible by definition. But that happens to be what he is trying to create. All life on Earth uses DNA or RNA and proteins, but is that the only option? Maybe this is just the only form that is left here on Earth, and we overlooked other life forms. And maybe there are other planets or life forms with a totally different basis. Cronin is looking for chemical reactions which are at the beginning of life: He does so with a kind of chemical search engine, that processes chemical structures endlessly. Will his lab create alternative forms of life? George Church, creator of new life forms: likes to think about the future, and foresees tremendous changes in everything we know about life. Especially thanks to genetics. The Church lab was the first one to use the new CRISPR-Cas technique to transform human stem cells: a new form of life. DNA programming then become a piece of cake. We're going to eradicate all kinds of diseases, dramatically extend our life span and then invest time and energy to bring life elsewhere in the universe. Will there be a variety of sophisticated genetic supermen that spread like wildfire across the galaxy? Hans Clevers, creator of mini organs: "I'm sure we will know exactly within one or two generations how our body builds itself and sustains". "And that means we basically can repair every sick organ. Probably with your own cells.". Clevers doesn't have enough with one life: he is the head of the investigation section of the Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology and of a research group at the Hubrecht Laboratory and is also Professor of Molecular Genetics. His research is all about stem cells and how we can get them to do what we want.

How Cancer Evolves Over Time | William Cross | TEDxGoodenoughCollege
As conventional cancer therapies can promote resistance and lead to relapse, can we increase cancer survival by understanding how it evolves? William Cross suggests that while cancer evolution will always be difficult to control when targeting the cells alone, we may have a better chance at controlling cancer by controlling its environmental conditions. William Cross is currently a PhD student at Barts Cancer Institute working with Dr. Trevor Graham and Prof. Sir Nick Wright in the Evolution in Cancer Laboratory. William is interested in how cancers genetically change over time and how this is related to therapeutic resistance and poor patient outcomes. William’s background is centred on cancer genetics and in recent years, has worked as a Bioinformatician, walking the line between computational analysis and the laboratory, which is essential to understanding the huge datasets that can be produced from modern experiments. After gaining his degree in 2005 from Cardiff University in Genetics, William worked as a Research Technician with Prof Huw Morris and as an NHS Healthcare Scientist with Dr Jerry Hancock at Bristol Genetics Laboratory. While working as a Healthcare Scientist, he helped determine the prognosis of children with Leukaemia and in the diagnosis of inherited cancers.

Snip, snip, cure: correcting defects in the genetic blueprint
Gene editing using ‘molecular scissors’ that snip out and replace faulty DNA could provide an almost unimaginable future for some patients: a complete cure. Cambridge researchers like Dr Alasdair Russell from the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute are working towards making the technology cheap and safe, as well as examining the ethical and legal issues surrounding one of the most exciting medical advances of recent times. “It’s like rewriting DNA with precision,” explains Dr Alasdair Russell. “Unlike other forms of gene therapy, in which cells are given a new working gene but without being able to direct where it ends up in the genome, this technology changes just the faulty gene. It’s precise and it’s ‘scarless’ in that no evidence of the therapy is left within the repaired genome.” Read more: http://www.cam.ac.uk/research/features/snip-snip-cure-correcting-defects-in-the-genetic-blueprint
Heart Failure After Cancer Treatment | Ellen's Story
30 years ago, Ellen was diagnosed with an advanced form of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She was treated with chemo and radiation therapy, which sent her cancer in remission, and she went on to graduate college and meet her husband, Bruce. Together, they started a family and had a great place down the shore. It was on one of their frequent trips to the beach that Ellen started experiencing discomfort. She just didn’t feel right and soon had trouble breathing. Bruce called an ambulance, but they couldn’t get her heart rate down and Ellen was put in a medically induced coma for two weeks. Although she had received treatment for cancer many years before, the radiation had other side effects, and she was now in heart failure. In congestive heart failure, blood flow slows down and begins to back up in the veins, causing excess fluids to accumulate in the body's tissues. There is most often swelling in the legs and ankles, but it can occur in other parts of the body as well. Sometimes fluid collects in the lungs and interferes with breathing, causing shortness of breath. Though the hospital tried a variety of treatments, Ellen was not improving and she and Bruce decided to seek a second opinion. They requested a transfer to Penn, where they met Dr. Michael Acker, Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery at Penn Medicine. Dr. Acker examined Ellen and found that her valve was the cause of her cardiac disease. He determined that a new valve would improve her quality of life. With this new care plan in place, Ellen and Bruce felt hope. On the day of the surgery all went as planned. Today, Ellen and her family are back to the life they love.

Naadiyoga I Patient-Akshat I Artificial Cervical Disc Insertion I Dr Ashish Gilhotra
Watch Our New Video - Naadiyoga I Patient-Akshat I Artificial Cervical Disc Insertion I Dr Ashish Gilhotra What Is Cervical Spondylosis? Cervical spondylosis is also called cervical osteoarthritis. It is a condition involving changes to the bones, discs, and joints of the neck. Cervical spondylosis is a general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of bones (bone spurs). Cervical spondylosis usually occurs in middle-aged and elderly people. As a result of the degeneration of discs and other cartilage, spurs or abnormal growths called osteophytes may form on the bones in the neck. These changes are caused by the normal wear-and-tear of aging. With age, the discs of the cervical spine gradually break down, lose fluid, and become stiffer. These abnormal growths can cause narrowing of the interior of the spinal column or in the openings where spinal nerves exit, a related condition called cervical spinal stenosis. Cervical spondylosis most often causes neck pain and stiffness. Factors for Cervical Spondylosis? *Aging is the major factor for developing cervical osteoarthritis (cervical spondylosis) *Another factor might be a previous injury to the neck. People in certain occupations or who perform specific activities -- such as gymnasts or other athletes -- may put more stress on their necks. *Poor posture might also play a role in the development of spinal changes that result in cervical spondylosis. The symptoms of cervical spondylosis -: *Neck stiffness and pain *Headache that may originate in the neck *Pain in the shoulder or arms *Inability to fully turn the head or bend the neck, sometimes interfering with driving *Grinding noise or sensation when the neck is turned *A1 video detail (after 10 days of treatment) reduce stiffness A2 (after 4 month) *Recover from problem

Cancer Doctor Gets 45 Years in Prison for Insurance Scheme
A judge sentenced a Detroit-area cancer doctor to 45 years in prison on Friday, for a massive scheme to collect millions from insurance companies while poisoning hundreds of patients through needless treatments that wrecked their health. US district judge Paul Borman this week heard stories of brittle bones and fried organs as patients chillingly described the effects of excessive chemotherapy at the hands of Dr. Farid Fata. The 50-year-old Fata pleaded guilty last year to fraud, money laundering and conspiracy and offered no excuses before getting his punishment. He later said, "I misused my talents, yes, and permitted this sin to enter me because of power and greed. My quest for power is self-destructive.” http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jul/10/detroit-cancer-doctor-insurance-scheme http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Breakthrough in neuroblastoma and breast cancer research identifies new treatment targets A team of researchers have discovered a completely new pathway in which a cell protein causes two common forms of cancer, neuroblastoma and breast cancer. In neuroblastoma, the most common tumour of infants, and breast cancer, levels of the Myc proteins are commonly elevated in tumour cells. High levels of the protein are also associated with poor treatment outcomes. However, the way in which these proteins cause cancer has remained unknown. For the first time, researchers at Children's Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research (CCIA), and collaborators in Italy, describe how the Myc proteins lead to tumour formation. "Our results show that Myc proteins cause cancer by switching off genes involved in cancer prevention, such as transglutaminase 2 (TG2)," says Professor Glenn Marshall, Head of CCIA's Molecular Carcinogenesis Program and Director of the Centre for Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders at Sydney Children's Hospital. "In addition to this, we have also shown that when the neuroblastoma and breast cancer cells are treated with a new class of anti-cancer drugs called histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs), they are able to turn the TG2 gene back on, which then inhibits tumour growth." The results which will be published this week in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Science USA journal, describe in detail the complex interaction between the Myc protein, TG2 gene and HDACI drug within tumour cells. "This work highlights the importance of HDACIs for the treatment of cancers caused by the high levels of Myc proteins," says Professor Marshall. "More importantly, we identify TG2 as a potential drug development target for the treatment of these cancers. "We believe that TG2 mimetics, combined with HDACIs in cancer therapy, will have potent anticancer effects in cells driven by Myc proteins." -ends- This work was supported by funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council, Cancer Council New South Wales, Cancer Institute New South Wales, United States National Cancer Institute, University of New South Wales, Italian Association for Research on Cancer, Italian Ministry of University and Research, University of Bologna, and Regional Program for Industrial Research-ITT Emilia Romagna Region, Italy. Children's Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research is affiliated with the University of NSW and Sydney Children's Hospital.

In medical oncology, our specialists treat cancers with medication. Chemotherapy, along with radiation and/or surgery, can completely destroy the disease in the early stages of cancer. In the advanced stages, it improves the quality of the patient’s life. In blood-related cancers, such as lymphomas and leukaemia, and germ-cell cancers, chemotherapy often plays a curative role. Today, there are a number of chemotherapeutic treatments available that root out the disease completely without harming the patient’s normal cells. Some drugs are available in oral form, thus eliminating the need for prolonged intravenous infusions and hospital stays. These newer medications are safer and less toxic than previously and are, therefore, better tolerated by the patient’s system.

Preclinical cancer-target validation: How not to be wrong
Preclinical cancer-target validation: How not to be wrong Air date: Wednesday, January 24, 2018, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 01:05:27 Description: Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Published and unpublished studies by investigators in the pharmaceutical industry indicate that a disturbingly high number of academic laboratories' reports nominating potential new cancer-drug targets are either non-reproducible or, if reproducible, are not sufficiently robust to form the basis for drug-discovery efforts. The reasons are likely multifactorial, including the ubiquitous use of "down" assays in cancer biology (e.g. decreased cell proliferation, decreased tumor growth, etc.) that incorporate chemical and genetic perturbants that are prone to cause off-target effects, failure to adequately correct for multiple hypothesis testing, flawed logic when inferring causality from correlative data, and publication bias in favor of "positive" results. Improving the veracity and robustness of preclinical target-validation studies will require setting higher standards in terms of the logic, controls, and corroboration underlying their conclusions. These standards will hopefully discourage the now common practice of relegating target identification and validation experiments to the last figures of papers in an (often gratuitous) attempt to justify their "clinically relevance." Real translation happens when one has finally gathered enough knowledge to know what can be done, not by coercing basic scientists to be translational scientists.

What Does That Really Mean? Episode 9: Immunotherapy
In this week's "What Does That Really Mean?", Medical Outreach Director Kaylen Jackson discusses what immunotherapy is and how it works. This is a new form of cancer treatment that is in the trial stages and will possibly be used as part of the treatment process for mesothelioma cancer patients. For more information visit us at www.asbestos.com Transcript: "Hi, I'm Kaylen and I'm the Medical Outreach Director for the Mesothelioma Center. And today I'm going to be talking to you about immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is a type of treatment that uses the body's own immune system to fight disease. It is designed to induce, enhance or suppress a natural immune response. In cancer treatment, immunotherapy is used to stimulate the body's own natural immune responses to more efficiently reject, attack and destroy the malignant cells that are responsible for the disease. Currently, around the world, there are a number of immunotherapy trials taking place to treat mesothelioma. Over the next few weeks I will be going over the history, current uses, and logistics of this up and coming therapy. I hope you'll tune in and join us, and in the meantime please contact us if you have any questions at all. Thanks for watching and see you next time."

Richard Wagamese - Indian Horse
Presented by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. In this emotional tale of Saul Indian Horse, Richard Wagamese tells the realistic story of a man whose life is drastically changed by one of Canada's most painful histories. When Saul was a child he was taken away from his family and forced into an Indian Residential School where he witnessed and experienced unimaginable abuses at the hands of the school's educators. In spite of the harrowing atrocities, it is at the school that Saul discovers his love of hockey, a game that, for a short time, serves as a means of escape. Saul's talent leads to a draft with a minor league team and a spot on Team Canada during the 1972 Canada-Soviet Summit Series. However, as Saul grows into a man, he struggles with racism and alcohol addiction. Saul's tumultuous adulthood eventually leads him back to his roots, where he confronts his past and begins a new journey towards healing. Richard Wagamese is an Ojibway author from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario. He is the author of several fiction and non-fiction works including For Joshua: An Ojibway Father Teaches His Son, Runaway Dreams, and Indian Horse. Wagamese has also been a journalist and, in 1991, became the first Aboriginal Canadian to receive the National Newspaper Award for Column Writing. His most recent novel, Indian Horse, was chosen as the winner of First Nation Communities Read, and is on the Globe and Mail's bestseller's list as well as the Canadian Booksellers Association's bestseller's list. Among his awards, Wagamese's memoir One Native Life was listed as one of The Globe and Mail's 100 Best Books of 2008. In 2010 he accepted an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Thompson Rivers University. Wagamese currently lives just outside of Kamloops, BC with his wife, Debra Powell, and Molly the Story Dog.

Risk of Breast Cancer in Black Women To Be Examined in New NIH Study
Overall survival rates for women with breast cancer have improved dramatically in recent decades. But according to UPI, black women are still more likely to die from the disease and are more likely to be diagnosed with more aggressive forms of it. In an effort to explain differences in breast cancer occurrence, severity and death among black women, researchers at the National Institutes of Health announced on Thursday they are launching a large study of genetics they hope will lead to better treatment. A $12 million grant is funding the Breast Cancer Genetic Study in African Ancestry Populations. The study will have researchers comparing the genomes of 20,000 black women with breast cancer to 20,000 genomes of black women without the disease, and then comparing them to those of white women with breast cancer. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/07/07/NIH-to-launch-study-of-breast-cancer-risk-in-black-women/1111467911099/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

News Techcology -  'Robot surgery' could save men from prostate cancer
News Techcology - 'Robot surgery' could save men from prostate cancer Surgeons have praised the pioneering use of robots in saving a record number of men from one of the UK’s deadliest cancers.The £1 million machines, known as Da Vinci robots, have performed life-saving surgery at University College London Hospitals on more than 500 men with advanced prostate cancer.Surgeons credit them with being quicker, safer and the procedures have fewer side effects than existing treatments in a move that has been described as a 'game changer'.The robot, controlled by a surgeon at a computer console, has six arms with tiny scissors and pliers, which make incisions in the patient's abdomen.They are able to remove small sections of tissue and glands affected by the cancer without making a large cut, as in 'open surgery.' This means the patient recovers much more quickly and can go home the next day, unlike conventional surgery, where patients can remain in hospital for five days or longer.Furthermore, as the robot is so precise, it is less likely to damage surrounding tissue.This means that men are are much less likely to suffer common side effects such as incontinence and impotence.Prostate cancer is the most common form of the disease in men, and one in eight will develop it at some point during their lifetime.Many men delay prostate cancer treatment over fears they may suffer incurable erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence and it is very difficult to predict whether the tumours are aggressive and deadly or slow-growing and relatively harmless.Prostate cancer is the most common form of the disease in men and the second biggest killer in men after lung cancer, causing 11,300 UK deaths a year.'It gives men their lives back after prostate cancer' Professor John Kelly, clinical lead for urology at University College London Hospitals at Westmoreland Street hospital, said: 'Although [conventional] surgery removes the cancerous tumour, patients are left with life-changing after-effects like incontinence and impotence, which can be devastating.'Robotic surgery has changed that - it gives us the precision to remove the cancerous tumour, preserving the tissues and functions around it.'It gives men their lives back after prostate cancer.' Patient can go home the next day The number of operations carried out by UCLH is expected to exceed 600 by the end of the year; the most ever performed by an NHS hospital in a year.Two Da Vinci robots are currently available and in use six days a week.Westmoreland Street hospital performs prostate surgery previously carried out at hospitals including Whipps Cross, Homerton, North Middlesex, Queen’s in Romford and Princess Alexandra in Harlow as part of the NHS' move to promote optimal cancer care.Patients are able to go home the next day rather than spending 18 days in hospital following conventional surgery.The latest Da Vinci Xi robot has been in use in several London hospitals, including the Royal Marsden and Guy’s, since 2015.Prostate cancer sufferer David Ferris, 66, an activist and polit Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5114551/Robot-surgery-save-men-prostate-cancer.html

NEET Medical Online Video on Human Reproduction - Structure of Testis: Class 12th Zoology
This Aakash iTutor video gives a thorough knowledge about the structure of a testis. The testis is surrounded by a connective tissue sheet called Tunica Albuginea. The connective tissue sheet divides the Testis internally into small lobules termed as testicular lobules. Tunica Albuginea also surrounds each lobule. There can be around 250-300 lobules in the testis. Within each lobule, there are fine loops that come out in the form of a narrow duct known as Seminiferous Tubule which forms a network called Rete Testis, and then that opens into Vasa Efferentia, and it opens into Epididymis Duct which then leads into the Vas Deferens.
