Dementia tied to hormone-blocking prostate cancer treatment
 
Quote

Alzheimer's disease may be a risk for older prostate cancer patients given hormone-blocking treatment, a large, U.S. government-funded analysis found.

Among 154,000 older patients, 13% who received hormone-blocking treatment developed Alzheimer's, compared with 9% who had other treatment or chose no therapy, the study found.

Studija potvrđuje da je većinski (i to značajno većinski) uzrok autizma - nasleđivanje:
 
 
  Association of Genetic and Environmental Factors With Autism in a 5-Country Cohort 
 
Quote

In a large population-based multinational cohort study including more than 2 million individuals, 22 156 of whom were diagnosed with ASD, the heritability of autism spectrum disorder was estimated to be approximately 80%, with possible modest differences in the sources of autism spectrum disorder risk replicated across countries.
 
The variation in the occurrence of autism spectrum disorder in the population is mostly owing to inherited genetic influences, with no support for contribution from maternal effects.

Menopause breakthrough will allow older women to have children after building a career, doctor claims  
 
Quote

The revolutionary procedure, which is being offered by the fertility expert who pioneered IVF, works by tricking women’s biological clocks into thinking they are far younger than they are.
The surgery freezes ovarian tissue at -150C. It is then stored in an ice bank until women reach the menopause when it is then thawed and transplanted back into the body years later when it will then kickstart women’s natural hormones and delay the menopause.

Svako ko je imao nekog bliskog sa malignom bolešću verovatno je makar čuo savet da kupi ulje od kanabisa jer je to nezvanično dobar tretman za kancer. E, sad, ova studija ukazuje da tu ipak, uz dosta ograda, ima nečega:

CRISPR Gene-Editing May Offer Path To Cure For HIV, First Published Report Shows 
 
Quote

Chinese scientists have published the first report in a scientific journal of an attempt to use CRISPR-edited cells in a patient--a 27-year-old man who is HIV-positive.
While the treatment did not rid the man of the AIDS virus, the researchers and others are calling the report promising. That's because it indicates that so far the gene-editing technique seems to safely and effectively make the precise DNA change intended.

Kome su fekalni transplantati već dosadni i "jučerašnji", evo priče o transplantaciji vaginalnih fluida:


Transplanting poop can be beneficial—swapping vaginal fluids may be even better


Zanimljivo zvuči i eto jednog primera inovativne zdravstvene terapije gde su žene u očiglednoj prednosti.

Nije baš budućnost ali je zanimljivo da u Kaliforniji sada možete PrEP pilule koje preventivno deluju protiv, jelte, HIV infekcije, da kupite OTC, dakle, bez recepta.

Baš sam pre neki dan pričao sa ćaletom o tome da sa svinja na ljude presađuju srčane zaliske (zbog sličnosti u imunosistemu itd.) a da kožu ne presađuju jer je debela, kad ono:

Kad smo već kod budućnosti, male boginje, dame i gospodo, bolest koju smo praktično eliminisali a onda su se pojavili pametnjakovići sa pričama da su vakcine štetne i da su male boginje ionako sitan zdravstveni problem. Tekst je, naravno, navijačkog tipa ali objašnjava epidemiologiju, metode izračunavanja broja slučajeva i rezonovanje za kampanju vakcinisanja:
 
 
 Measles deaths 'staggering and tragic' 
 
Quote

More than 140,000 people died from measles last year as the number of cases around the world surged once again, official estimates suggest.
Most of the lives cut short were children aged under five.

  Chinese scientist who edited babies' genes jailed for three years

pored svih etičkih problema, fascinantna je arogancija i ubeđenost da će se sa trenutno postojećom tehnikom doći do vrlo specifične mutacije u CCR5, ne uzimajući u obzir da je CRISPR-Cas9 prilično specifičan al daleko od idealno specifičnog.
i naravno, dobilo se što se dobilo.
a što se tiče kineza, u zatvor su ga verovatno strpali jer nije uspeo u nameri. :lol:
btw, bila sam nedavno u pekingu na nekoj imunološkoj konferenciji, vidi se da kina ulaže ogromne pare u research. fakt je takođe i da retki pričaju, a još ređi razumeju engleski; stručna komunikacija je uglavnom teška, al za 30 godina biće to mnogo drugačije. premda, ta poslušnost koju osećaš u vazduhu je scary.
