Invasive breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells spread into the surrounding breast tissue.. In 1997 , the FDA approved Evista for the prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and in 1999 for the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American women and accounts for 26 % of all cancers in women. An estimated 178,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the United States in 2007.
‘Today’s action provides an important new option for women at increased risk of breast cancer,’said Steven Galson, Director, FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. ‘Because Evista can cause serious side effects, should the benefits and risks of taking Evista be carefully evaluated for each individual woman. Women should talk with their doctor about whether the drug is right for them. ‘. Continue reading

– Kenneth Anderson, medical director of the Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center at Dana-Farber and author of the paper, the results of can we predict how patients on current treatments based on a genetic analysis of their response disease. In addition, the results identify many new genes in the cause and progression of myeloma involved, and the product of these genes can be targeted with new therapies. .. Not only the findings pave the way for treatments tailored to a patient’s specific form of the disease, but also narrow down areas of the chromosomes in myeloma cells likely to contain undiscovered genetic defects that drive myeloma, and which might be vulnerable to targeted designer drugs.

Avium and related pathogens were found in slimy ‘biofilms ‘ inside of inside of showerheads at more than 100 times the ‘background ‘levels of municipal water lumpy. ‘If you are getting a face full of water when you first turn your shower on, that means you are probably getting a particularly high load of Mycobacterium avium, which may not be too healthy.’He said.

Based on their studies, Raser and O’Shea believe they identifies the source of a major portion of of the random noise signal they observed. Our experiments point out that for the promoters we studied, a major source of noise is the act of preparing the promoter DNA, the regulatory region which is responsible for the transcription, said O’Shea. This preparation, she said, involves remodeling the protective structure, called nucleosomes, which surrounds the regulatory region of the gene so that the transcription machinery can access. And, the step, the noise is generated of removing the of removing the nucleosomes, mutations in genes of the transcription machinery and the regulatory proteins. Continue reading
