Detailed How To: The Potential for Respiratory Droplet–Transmissible A/H5N1 Influenza Virus to Evolve in a Mammalian Host

Relevance: 88%      Posted on: August 1, 2012

* This is information has been made public, I am leaving the figures out... Science 22 June 2012: Vol. 336 no. 6088 pp. 1541-1547 DOI: 10.1126/science.1222526 Abstract Avian A/H5N1 influenza viruses pose a pandemic threat. As few as five amino acid substitutions, or four with reassortment, might be sufficient for mammal-to-mammal transmission through respiratory droplets. From surveillance data, we found that two of these substitutions are common in A/H5N1 viruses, and thus, some viruses might require only three additional substitutions to become transmissible via respiratory droplets between mammals. We used a mathematical model of within-host virus evolution to study factors…

"We are in the process of eradicating polio worldwide, but if we eliminate the poliovirus and cease polio vaccinations, our immune systems wouldn't produce antibodies against polio, and Coxsackievirus could theoretically fill the niche of eradicated polio" he said.

Public release date: 19-Apr-2010 - "It's well known that meat cooked at high temperatures generates heterocyclic amines (HCAs) that can cause cancer," Genetic variants in metabolism pathway further raise likelihood WASHINGTON, D.C. - People who eat meat frequently, especially meat that is well done or cooked at high temperatures, may have a higher chance of developing bladder cancer, according to a large study at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center presented at the American Association for Cancer Research 101st Annual Meeting 2010. This risk appears to increase in people with certain genetic variants.

Painters at significantly increased risk of bladder cancer

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: February 14, 2014

Public release date: 19-Jul-2010 - They found that after taking account of smoking, painters were still 30% more likely to develop bladder cancer than the general population. Bladder cancer risk in painters: a meta-analysis Painters are at significantly increased risk of developing bladder cancer, concludes a comprehensive analysis of published evidence in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. And the risk increases the longer a person works as a professional painter, the analysis shows. The authors base their findings on almost 3000 cases of bladder cancer arising in professional painters, reported in 41 separate studies. Other related occupations, such as plasterers, glaziers,…

Frankincense oil — a wise man’s remedy for bladder cancer

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: April 24, 2009

Public release date: 17-Mar-2009  - The team found that frankincense oil is able to discriminate between normal and cancerous bladder cells in culture, and specifically kill cancer cells. Originating from Africa, India, and the Middle East, frankincense oil has been found to have many medicinal benefits. Now, an enriched extract of the Somalian Frankincense herb Boswellia carteri has been shown to kill off bladder cancer cells. Research presented in the open access journal, BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, demonstrates that this herb has the potential for an alternative therapy for bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is twice as common in males…

High fluid intake appears to reduce bladder cancer risk

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: May 6, 2014

Public release date: 24-Oct-2011 BOSTON — Drinking plenty of fluids may provide men with some protection against bladder cancer, according to a study presented at the 10th AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, held Oct. 22-25, 2011. Although the study did not determine why increased fluid intake might be protective, Jiachen Zhou, M.B.B.S., M.P.H., a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at Brown University, hypothesized that the fluids may flush out potential carcinogens before they have the opportunity to cause tissue damage that could lead to bladder cancer. Researchers evaluated the association between fluid intake and bladder cancer among…

The researchers injected a cold virus called Coxsackievirus A21 into mice that were engineered to be susceptible to this particular virus. However, instead of developing a cold, the mice unexpectedly displayed paralytic symptoms characteristic of polio. The researchers determined that administering the virus directly into muscles, instead of the virus's…

2 components of red meat combined with alteration in DNA repair increase risk for bladder cancer

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: October 15, 2014

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Two components of red meat — dietary protein and dietary iron — may combine to form powerful carcinogens, N-nitroso compounds, which increase risk for bladder cancer. Moreover, individuals with reduced ability to reverse the effects of N-nitroso compounds because of a genetic variation in their RAD52 gene could be at particularly high risk. Chelsea Catsburg, a doctoral student at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, presented these data at the 11th Annual AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, held here Oct. 16-19, 2012. Dietary protein is made…

Certain meat components may increase bladder cancer risk

Relevance: 58%      Posted on: February 16, 2014

Public release date: 2-Aug-2010 - People whose diets had the highest amount of total dietary nitrite (from all sources and not just from meat), as well as those whose diets had the highest amount of nitrate plus nitrite from processed meats had a 28 percent to 29 percent increased risk of developing bladder cancer compared with those who consumed the lowest amount of these compounds. A new study suggests that consuming specific compounds in meat related to processing methods may be associated with an increased risk of developing bladder cancer. Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the…

Your mom was right when she told you to eat your broccoli, or at least your broccoli sprouts. Researchers have found that this rich source of isothiocyanates (ITCs) – a well-known class of cancer prevention agents — could play a direct role in preventing bladder cancer. “The bladder is like a storage bag, and cancers in the bladder occurs almost entirely along the inner surface, the epithelium, that faces the urine, presumably because this tissue is assaulted all the time by noxious materials in the urine,” said senior author Yuesheng Zhang, M.D., Ph.D, professor of oncology at Roswell Park Cancer
