Scientists have discovered that a genetic bone disease, FOP, is caused because a protein receptor is overactive and cells become oxygen starved causing lesions. This condition causes patients to have trouble swallowing, limited motion, and to have trouble breathing. They have discovered that a cancer drug known as Gleevec, can spark those protein receptors to work normally again, and have a lot of confidence that this method will soon have clinical use. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/05/02/Preventing-low-oxygen-response-stops-flare-ups-in-bone-disorder/9041462216259/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Drug for bone loss may protect women from breast cancer
Просмотров: 23 WPTV News | West Palm Beach Florida
www.rxwiki.com Nearly all postmenopausal women with early-stage, HR+ breast cancer are treated with aromatase inhibitors. But these drugs can significantly compromise bone health and up the risk of fractures. For this reason, high-risk patients are often prescribed the osteoporosis drug denosumab (brand name Prolia) to reduce their risk of fractures. But denosumab may have another benefit, a new study found. Adding denosumab to aromatase inhibitor therapy may improve disease-free survival in postmenopausal women with early-stage, HR+ breast cancer. Because denosumab is currently only approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for breast cancer patients who are at high risk for fractures, the drug is typically only added to the treatment regimens of patients with established osteoporosis. Osteoporosis a condition that causes the bones to become weak and brittle.

Around the world, millions of older women and a smaller number of older men have been taking a drug to prevent hip fractures and fight osteoporosis, a disease caused by low bone mass and bone deterioration. Now some doctors are concerned that patients who have taken the drug, Fosamax, and similar medications for four to five years may be at risk for sudden fractures of the femur, the main thigh bone. VOA's Melinda Smith has details about possible side effects of the drugs, and what the U.S. government's health agency is doing about it.

We teach you about hormonal therapy for breast cancer. Drugs such as tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors are key treatment options for most breast cancers. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Medical Oncologist: 1. What type of hormonal therapy do you recommend? 2. Will I also benefit from chemotherapy? 3. What are the side effects of hormonal therapy? 4. Will I need 5 or 10 years of these medications? 5. Would the genomic assay Oncotype DX be helpful? 6. What is Hormonal Therapy? Anti-estrogen (estrogen-blocking) medications, prescribed as pills, are incredibly effective at treating certain types of breast cancer. Hormonal therapy is given to about 70 to 80% of women with breast cancer. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, is a more intense cancer treatment that is generally administered intravenously. Most patients will not need chemotherapy. Many women that do need chemotherapy will also benefit from hormonal therapy. These treatment decisions are complex ones with your medical oncologist. You will make better choices when you are well informed before meeting with your medical oncologist. Do my “Receptors” suggest Hormonal Therapy? When the estrogen circulating in your blood stream interacts with a breast cancer that has “Estrogen Receptors” (ER) present on its surface, it tends to flip the ER switch to the “on” or “grow” position for ER Positive tumors. The same can be said to a lesser extent for the “Progesterone Receptor,” if your cancer is found to also be PR positive. Patients with ER+ breast cancers almost always benefit from the anti-estrogen effects of hormonal therapy. These medications can make cancer cells die, or slow down their growth. If a few cancer cells have already spread to other parts of the body, these medications are incredibly effective at preventing these cells from growing and threatening your life in the future. In other words, those who take hormonal therapy for ER+ tumors have a more successful chance at long-term survival when compared to those who do not. About 80% of all breast cancers are ER+. Even if your medical oncologist recommends chemotherapy for you, if your tumor is ER+ you will also benefit from up to 10 years of hormonal therapy after chemotherapy. Hormonal therapy is never given during chemotherapy nor during radiation therapy. What is “Tamoxifen?” Tamoxifen is an anti-estrogen medication (pills) that has been used with great success with ER+ cancers for three decades. It is now the primary hormonal therapy for younger, pre-menopausal women. It is also the primary drug for men with breast cancer. It is used for some post-menopausal women. What are “Aromatase Inhibitors?” Aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are a class of anti-estrogen medications (pills) that have proven to be slightly more effective than Tamoxifen for post-menopausal women. It is not recommended for younger, pre-menopausal women, except in certain circumstances. The three most common versions are Anastrozole (Arimidex), Letrozole (Femara), and Exemestane (Aromasin). What are the side effects of Hormonal Therapy? Side effects vary greatly from one person to the next for both types of hormonal medications. Some have no symptoms at all. Most have very tolerable side effects. Some patients will need to change hormonal therapy medications to find the best balance of cancer benefit versus side effects. Several side effects that are rather common for both tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors are hot flashes, night sweats, joint pain, and vaginal dryness. Below, we list some of the other specific side effects for both drugs. Tamoxifen Side Effects: Increased risk of uterine (endometrial) cancer Increased risk of developing blood clots Slows normal bone loss in most women (a “good” side effect) Cannot be taken during pregnancy because of risk of birth defects or fetal death Can temporarily induce menopause in pre-menopausal women. Aromatase Inhibitor Side Effects: Can worsen bone loss (osteoporosis) in women Muscle and joint aches and pains Would an “Oncotype DX” assay help me? Patients who have a small, estrogen receptor positive, HER2 receptor negative tumor, and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX genomic assay. This cutting-edge test looks deeper into your cancer cells to better identify people who may also benefit from chemotherapy with ER+ breast cancers. The decision to undergo chemotherapy, in addition to hormonal therapy, is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist uses many factors to help decide if you will benefit from chemotherapy. An Oncotype DX analysis of a portion of your breast cancer tissue can be instrumental in this decision.

Is it possible to reverse osteoporosis? I have seen it happen many times with my patients. You can prevent/reverse osteoporosis with the tips i give in this video, as well as prevent/reverse osteopenia. Large drug companies would rather you not know this, but you deserve to know. Bones are living tissue that are constantly being remodeled, and they are built of what you have eaten over the past few years. Osteoclast are specialized cells which removed old & damaged bone tissue. Following behind them are Osteoblasts which are cells that lay down new bone matrix in a very strategic way. You diet and lifestyle determine if this remodeling process leads to stronger or weaker bones; what you do and what you eat literally decide how strong your bones will be. These specialized cells down dissolve old bone and lay down new bone in some willy-nilly fashion, they are very wise in this process of increasing your Meaningful Bond Density. Most of the prescription medications for Osteoporosis Treatment/Prevention hi-jack the actions of these specialized cells. Although these medications can increase your over-all bone density; this increased density often does not lead to meaningful increases in bone strength and flexibility...

Current treatment for prostate cancer is expensive, has numerous side-effects, and has a high mortality rate. It is astonishing how long this ailment has affected humanity without providing a reliable solution. Consequently, our team will examine how gold charged nanoparticles are used to aid the treatment of prostate cancer, specifically via drug delivery. These particles have a gold inner core and are coated with polyethylene glycol. Polyethylene glycol and gold are used due to their relatively inert state and non-toxicity. Gold is also used because, at a nanoscale, it is a catalyst for reactions. The surface chemistry of gold nanoparticles can be altered so that they can be coated with small polymers and other therapeutic agents such as cancer-treating drugs (specifically Docetaxel and Doxorubicin). This also gives the patient's DNA the ability to bond to the nanoparticle’s surface, which allows these nanoparticles to travel through the body without being rejected. These nanoparticles are spherical shaped, and while studies are beginning to show that non-spherical particles are more effective than spherical particles, researchers do not yet fully understand the shape effect non-spherical particles have on cancerous cells. The diameter of these nanoparticles is less than 170nm so that they can effectively fit through and diffuse inside cells and capillaries. Additionally, these nanoparticles are charged. Due to their charge, the nanoparticles repel each other, which prevents them from aggregating. Furthermore, it simply helps nanoparticles interact with cells and diffuse through concentration barriers more efficiently. This method of prostate cancer treatment is still being researched and has yet to be approved for medical use; however, it has the potential to replace current treatment methods, as it could be more effective and safer in practice.

A drug used for melanoma may have the ability to speed wound healing according to new research. Although researchers say more studies are necessary before it could be distributed for that use with patients. The melanoma drug vemurafenib, marketed as Zelboraf, activates proteins in skin. Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles say it holds promise for accelerated wound healing. Vemurafenib is one of several newer cancer drugs called BRAF inhibitors which block the effects of a mutated gene involved with cell signaling that has become a key target in treating cancer. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/08/01/Melanoma-drug-may-help-speed-wound-healing/6271470053533/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Many people experience joint pain in their knees, elbows and hands. Many people relate this to aging. Because of this, they believe it to be a normal pain and do not seek treatment for it. However, when the body is in pain, it experiences stress. Also, untreated knee pain can cause damage to the knees and cause shifting of the knee. Knee pain can be caused by excessive use, bone density, as well as wear and tear of the muscles and tissues. Vitamin deficiency is also a known cause of knee pain. Particularly, if the body lacks calcium, vitamin D and iron. Someone who lacks vitamin D and calcium is at risk for arthritis and inflammation of the joints. Many people also do not realize that this pain can be treated with a natural remedy which will leave them pain-free in just a matter of a few days. Today’s video will discuss how to prevent joint and knee pain, as well as how to relieve it. If someone experiences knee pain for over a week, there may be a more serious problem than just overuse and they should seek medical attention. It is also very important to eat a diet that is high in vitamins, bromelain and magnesium. A smoothie made from cinnamon, pineapple and orange juice is one natural remedy that is highly effective in treating and relieving knee and joint pain. This smoothie has anti-inflammatory properties, as well as silicon, bromelain, vitamin C and magnesium. Vitamin C is found in pineapple and is especially important to the body’s bones. Pineapple also contains a high amount of bromelain, which is an anti-inflammatory. Cinnamon helps the body’s blood to circulate more effectively. Orange juice also contains vitamin C that can help make ligaments and tendons strong. To make the smoothie, you will need: 2 small cups of diced pineapple; 1 cup of rolled oats; 2 cups of water; 1 glass of orange juice; 1 cinnamon stick; Raw, natural honey; Directions: Add water and oatmeal into a pot and allow to cook for a few minutes.

Don’t rely on routine tests alone to protect you from cancer. It’s just as important to listen to your body and notice anything that’s different, odd, or unexplainable. Here are some signs that are commonly overlooked: 1. Wheezing or shortness of breath One of the first signs many lung cancer patients remember noticing is the inability to catch their breath. 2. Chronic cough or chest pain Several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung tumors, can cause symptoms that mimic a bad cough or bronchitis. Some lung cancer patients report chest pain that extends up into the shoulder or down the arm. 3. Frequent fevers or infections These can be signs of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in the bone marrow. Leukemia causes the marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells, sapping your body’s infection-fighting capabilities. 4. Difficulty swallowing Trouble swallowing is most commonly associated with esophageal or throat cancer, and is sometimes one of the first signs of lung cancer, too. 5. Swollen lymph nodes or lumps on the neck, underarm, or groin Enlarged lymph nodes indicate changes in the lymphatic system, which can be a sign of cancer. 6. Excessive bruising or bleeding that doesn’t stop This symptom usually suggests something abnormal happening with the platelets and red blood cells, which can be a sign of leukemia. Over time, leukemia cells crowd out red blood cells and platelets, impairing your blood’s ability to carry oxygen and clot. 7. Weakness and fatigue Generalized fatigue and weakness is a symptom of so many different kinds of cancer that you’ll need to look at it in combination with other symptoms. But any time you feel exhausted without explanation and it doesn’t respond to getting more sleep, talk to your doctor. 8. Bloating or abdominal weight gain Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer overwhelmingly report unexplained abdominal bloating that came on fairly suddenly and continued on and off over a long period of time. 9. Feeling full and unable to eat This is another tip-off to ovarian cancer; women say they have no appetite and can’t eat, even when they haven’t eaten for some time. 10. Pelvic or abdominal pain Pain and cramping in the pelvis and abdomen can go hand in hand with the bloating that often signals ovarian cancer. Leukemia can also cause abdominal pain resulting from an enlarged spleen. 11. Rectal bleeding or blood in stool This is a common result of diagnosing colorectal cancer. Blood in the toilet alone is reason to call your doctor and schedule a colonoscopy. 12. Unexplained weight loss Weight loss is an early sign of colon and other digestive cancers; it’s also a sign of cancer that’s spread to the liver, affecting your appetite and the ability of your body to rid itself of wastes. 13. Upset stomach or stomachache Stomach cramps or frequent upset stomachs may indicate colorectal cancer. 14. A red, sore, or swollen breast These symptoms can indicate inflammatory breast cancer. Call your doctor about any unexplained changes to your breasts. 15. Nipple changes One of the most common changes women remember noticing before being diagnosed with breast cancer is a nipple that began to appear flattened, inverted, or turned sideways. 16. Unusually heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods Many women report this as the tip-off to endometrial or uterine cancer. Ask for a transvaginal ultrasound if you suspect something more than routine heavy periods. 17. Swelling of facial features Some patients with lung cancer report noticing puffiness, swelling, or redness in the face. Small cell lung tumors commonly block blood vessels in the chest, preventing blood from flowing freely from your head and face. 18. A sore or skin lump that doesn’t heal, becomes crusty, or bleeds easily Familiarize yourself with the different types of skin cancer —melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma — and be vigilant about checking skin all over your body for odd-looking growths or spots.

🔥 FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d4f?utm_source=ytube&utm_term=bone Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O4WHoZ how to increase bone density how to improve bone density low bone density Osteoporosis symptoms osteoporosis causes what causes osteoporosis exercises for osteoporosis Osteopenia Treatment Would you like to learn how to increase bone density? In this weeks video, I tackle Osteoporosis and offer some solutions to this degenerative disease. The facts: 1-2 females will have osteopenia or osteoporosis 1-5 males will have osteopenia or osteoporosis People will lose bone density because of: 1. Aging/sedentary lifestyle 2. Lack of a wide variety of proper nutrients; not just calcium 3. Certain medicine such as blood thinners, and certain anti inflammatory medicine Here are some solutions: Eat more vegetables. I always say that you can eat an unlimited amount of green veggies and this applies more than ever in this video. Spinach and kale are great. Have a minimum of 5 cups of veggies per day. Veggies are alkaline and will naturally decrease inflammation in our body. An adult needs 1000-1300mg of calcium per day If you think that milk is your answer for how to improve bone density you're wrong. There have been studies done that even though the milk we've been drinking for generations does have a lot of calcium, it does not necessarily lead to strong bones as the ads have claimed Calcium from milk and other animal products is absorbed at a much smaller rate than from plant based products. Beans, nuts, and especially green vegetables like kale have been shown to have a better effect on calcium absorption than milk. Just because its got a lot of calcium doesn't mean your body is absorbing all that calcium. Also eat more omega 3 fatty acids to help the absorption of calcium. Now lets get to what really works 100% of the time to increase bone density, recover from low bone density, and prevent you from ever losing it again...Exercise!!!! Many doctors believe in walking or running to increase bone density, but...I don't believe this is going to give you the results you want. I know a doctor being wrong about something and a trainer being right...mind blowing. Having extra weight on your bones, joints, and muscles during exercises is not only beneficial, but necessary for your survival. I'm sure you've heard the saying, "if you don't use it you lose it." Well the reason that you're losing bone density is because your not using it. Great movements to increase bone density are Squats, Lunges, push ups, and really almost any other basic weight bearing exercises I can think of. Start with low weight or just your body weight in the beginning and work your way up. Your bone density will improve more as you increase your weight and overall intensity over time. http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music how to increase bone density | how to improve bone density | low bone density | Osteoporosis symptoms | osteoporosis causes | what causes osteoporosis | exercises for osteoporosis | what is osteoporosis | how to fix osteoporosis | how to cure osteoporosis | how | to | increase | bone | density | Improve | Low | Osteoporosis | symptoms | causes | exercises | fix | cure | personal training West Freehold, NJ | Personal trainer West freehold, NJ |

April 9, 2008 presentation by Nobel laureate Harold Varmus for the Stanford School of Medicine Medcast lecture series. Nobel laureate Harold Varmus discusses the intersection of cancer biology and cancer medicine. Varmus, president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, earned his Nobel Prize for discovering retroviral oncogenes that can cause cancer. That work changed the way people thought about cancer: Rather than being a disease caused by environmental exposure, it could result from mutations in specific genes. Now, much cancer research and the search for therapeutics focus on genetic changes in cancer.

Men tolerate symptomatic pain differently. Age and generational differences may affect how a man responds to pain, states Neal D. Shore, MD, FACS. A spouse or caregiver may help in relaying the patient’s use of analgesics, and reporting of pain. Bone metastases can occur throughout the body, explains Shore, including in the axial spine, appendicular skeleton, scapula, femur, and skull.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. The amount of calcium in circulation is MAINLY regulated by 2 hormones: parathyroid hormone (PTH) and calcitriol. PTH is produced in the parathyroid gland while calcitriol is made in the kidney. When serum calcium level is low, PTH is UP-regulated. PTH acts to PROMOTE calcium release from bones and REDUCE calcium loss from urine. At the same time, it stimulates production of calcitriol, which promotes absorption of calcium in the small intestine while also INcreases RE-absorption in the kidney. Together, they bring UP calcium levels back to normal. The REVERSE happens when calcium level is high. This feedback loop keeps serum calcium concentrations within the normal range. HYPERcalcemia is generally defined as serum calcium level GREATER than 2.6 mmol/L. Because the total serum calcium includes albumin-bound and free-ionized calcium, of which only the LATTER is physiologically active, calcium levels must be corrected to account for albumin changes. For example, INcreased albumin levels produce HIGHER serum calcium values but the amount of FREE calcium may STILL be normal. On the other hand, in conditions with low blood pH, albumin binds LESS calcium; releasing MORE FREE calcium while the total serum calcium may appear normal. Most symptoms of hypercalcemia can be attributed to the effect it has on action potential generation in neurons. High levels of extracellular calcium INHIBIT sodium channels, which are essential for DEpolarization. Hypercalcemia therefore REDUCES neuronal excitability, causing confusion, lethargy, muscle weakness and constipation. In most cases, excess calcium in the blood is a direct result of calcium release from bones as they break down, becoming weak and painful. As the kidneys try to get rid of the extra calcium, MORE water is also removed, resulting in dehydration, excessive thirst and kidney stones. Extremely high extracellular calcium may also affect cardiac action potentials, causing arrhythmias. Typical ECG findings include short QT interval, and in severe cases, presence of Osborn waves. While hypercalcemia may result from a variety of diseases and factors, HYPERparathyroidism and cancers are responsible for about 90% of cases, with the former being by far the most common cause. In HYPERparathyroidism, PTH is OVERproduced due to benign or malignant growths within the parathyroid gland. An existing cancer elsewhere in the body can cause hypercalcemia in 2 major ways. First, some cancer cells produce a protein similar to PTH, called PTHrP, which acts like PTH to increase serum calcium. Unlike PTH, however, PTHrP is NOT subject to negative feedback; consequently, calcium levels may keep rising unchecked. Second, cancers may spread to bone tissues, causing bone resorption or osteolysis, and subsequent calcium release into the blood. Hypercalcemia treatment consists of lowering blood calcium levels with a variety of drugs, and addressing the underlying cause. While treatment outcome for hyperparathyroidism is generally excellent, prognosis for malignancy-related hypercalcemia is poor, possibly because it usually occurs in later stages of cancer.

According to UPI, and early and aggressive treatment for rheumatoid arthritis may help protect against progressive bone loss. Researchers from the International Osteoporosis Foundation found that disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs are effective in treating bone loss if used early in treatment. Bone loss often a harmful effect of chronic inflammation in the body caused by arthritis. The team's review of 28 studies found the field of study showed promise, but that further research needed to be done. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/11/07/Early-rheumatoid-arthritis-treatment-may-prevent-rapid-bone-loss/5091478538480/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Clodronate Prevents Breast Cancer : http://www.Fitnessential.co/ Find out more about Clodronate Is An Absolute Must for Bone and Breast Cancer Patients Clodronate Prevents Breast Cancer The treatment of clodronate stops breast cancer from spreading to bone cancer. NOTE: Unavailable in United states. The meals FDA's suppression of clodronate has caused the needless death of around 30, 000 American women every year! Clodronate belongs to a band of drugs which are called bisphosphonates. Bisphosphonates are generally used in treating bone thinning (osteoporosis). In a few situations, they could protect your bones against a number of the ramifications of secondary cancer of the bones, such as for example pain and weakness. Secondary bone cancer occurs if the original (primary) cancer spreads to form a second cancer (metastasis) in the bone. Clodronate is often given alongside other cancer treatments. As well as getting used in some types of secondary bone cancer, it is often been shown to be effective in people who have myeloma (cancer of plasma cells in the blood). Additionally it is used to lower an increasing calcium levels in the blood. Because of secondary cancer of the bone, calcium, which helps fortify the bones, may be lost from the damaged bone and seep to the bloodstream. An increasing amount of calcium in the blood is recognized as hypercalcaemia. This may cause symptoms like for example feeling/being sick (nausea and/or vomiting), tiredness, irritability and even confusion. Clodronate might help reduce high degrees of calcium. Secondary cancer inside the bones may make them weak, and in some situations they might break (fracture). Clodronate might help restrengthen the bones and decrease the risk of fractures. Cancer can impact the bones in different ways, and clodronate isn't helpful for all cancers that affect the bones. Your doctor or specialist nurse can tell you if it would be helpful for you. In normal bone, two types of cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts come together constantly to shape, rebuild and strengthen existing bone: osteoclasts which destroy old bone and osteoblasts which build new bone. Myeloma and some secondary bone cancers can produce chemicals that produce the osteoclasts work harder. Which means that more bone is destroyed than rebuilt, that leads to weakening of the affected bone. This may hurt and ensures that the bone can fracture or break easier. Clodronate targets areas of bone where the osteoclast activity is high. It helps bring the total amount of osteoclast and osteoblast activity back again to normal by reducing the experience of the osteoclasts. This may reduce pain and help fortify the bone. Additionally, it ensures that less calcium is likely to be lost from the bones. Clodronate is given as a tablet or capsule, frequently taken a couple of times each day. It is recommended that you just take the tablet or capsule in the morning and evening, and not within one or two hours of eating, having a milky drink or taking other medicines. It is because it's harder it to be absorbed to the bloodstream, which can make it much less effective. Avoid using clodronate with mineral supplements, such as for example multi-minerals, for the exact same reason.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and Prostate Cancer epidemiology, etiliogy, causes and symptoms, investigations, treatment and management. Handwritten full lecture for USMLE. ANATOMY of PROSTATE Central zone of prostate sorrounds ejaculatory duct. The Transitional zone of prostate encompases meddle part of urethra. Peripheral zone is placed outside. Prostate cancer is most common in peripheral zone (60-70%). The Central zone is the second most common site for prostate cancer (25%). The Transition zone only has an occurence rate of 5% for prostate cancer. Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is in the transition zone and that is why it presents mostly with urinary symptoms. BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA (BPH) Prostate is heavily influenced by DHT and testosterone, however, DHT is ten times more sensitive. Testosterone is converted to DHT by 5alpha reductase. This causes hyperplasia of collagen cells and the smooth muscle. The collagen will cause a physical obstruction while the smooth muscle will cause mechanical obstruction. Eventually there is bladder enlargement which may forma false diverticulum (outpouching of the bladder). Clinical Signs and Symptoms Obstructive symptoms - Consists of the patients experiencing hesitancy, difficulty voiding, straining, decrease in the force of stream and dribbling of urine. Irritation symptoms - increase frequency or urgency as well as nocturia. These symptoms occur as the bladder gets larger and begins to overflow. These symptoms can produce an International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS) which determines severity of Benign prostatic Hyperplasia through symptoms. Diagnosis of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Digital Rectum Exam is done initially, however it doesn't correlate well with symptoms and it is very difficult to palpate. Urinalysis is also done to rule out prostatitis. PSA is organ specific but can be elevated in cancer and prostatitis. Ultrasound or CT to look for complications such as bladder distention. Transrectal ultrasound is used before surgery. Treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) If the degree of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is minimal such as 0-7 on the IPSS score than watchful waiting because most spontaneously. So for these patients continue monitoring PSA and Digital Rectums Exams. If getting worse continue to medical treatment. Alpha 1 blocker allows relaxation of the smooth muscle that may be constricting the urethra. Finasteride is a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor to prevent formation of DHT from testosterone and help debulk the prostate. Commonly used drugs are terazosin and doxazosin but this can lead to hypotension. More specific is an Alpha A1 blocker such as tamsolusin which is more specific for the prostate and therefore hypotension is not present but can lead to retrograde ejaculation. Surgery - If medical therapy doesn't work for the Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Two procedures transurethral and prostatectomy. PROSTATE CANCER CLINICAL SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS of PROSTATE CANCER Can range from asymptomatic to completely fatal. Screening - Digital Rectal Exam is not helpful and PSA is the only method being used. Local Disease causes symptoms similar to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia symptoms, but this suggests involvement of the transition zone. Metastasis disease include symtpoms related to osteoblastic bone growth, primarily the spine leading to neurological symptoms and back pain. Prostatic Cancer patients may also have patients related to lower extremities due to lymphatic obstruction INVESTIGATION for PROSTATE CANCER Digital Rectal Exam shows a single nodule and correlates well with severity of disease. However, it may be a cyst or a stone. PSA normally should be less than 2.5ng/dL (some say less than 4 ng/dL). May also be helpful to measure as PSA Velocity and Free PSA versus Bound PSA. This helps distinguish Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia from Prostate Cancer. Transrectal Ultrasound may also be used. Biopsy uses the Gleasson Score which looks at the tissue of prostate under microscope and given a score out of 5. Staging of prostate cancer utilizes the TNM score. TREATMENT AND MANAGEMENT of PROSTATE CANCER Start with active surveillance by monitoring PSA/DRE/Biopsies. Radiation - Has a lot of GIT complications and may lead to erectile Dysfunction. Brachytherapy is the new treatment. Radical Prostatectomy - May lead to neruovascular damage causing Erectile Dysfunction and damage to urethra my lead to incontinence. After treatment continue to monitor PSA to look for Metastasis or resurgency of cancer. TREATMENT OF METASTASIS OF PROSTATE CANCER Castration - Orchiectomy (Gold Standard), Leuprolide/Ghrelin (GnRH) but these have a temporary increase in androgens, and Anti-Androgens (Flutamide). Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) are tumors that are still growing despite castration. Then use chemotherapy (Doxitexal, Mitoxantrone, Dosatinib)

Whats New - Source: How does broccoli help prevent cancer? Study sheds light. By Honor Whiteman. Past research has suggested that sulforaphane, a compound present in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetable, can help to prevent cancer or slow its progression. A new study may have discovered how. Researchers from Oregon State University found that sulforaphane reduced the expression of long noncoding RNAs lncRNAs in prostate cancer cells, which disrupted the cells' ability to form colonies a hallmark of metastatic cancer. Previously believed to be junk DNA with no significant function, lncRNAs have increasingly emerged as key players in the development of numerous cancers, including prostate, breast, stomach, and lung cancers. Studies have suggested that lncRNAs can regulate gene expression, the process by which genes are switched on or off in order to do their jobs. When lncRNAs become dysregulated, it is believed that they can fuel disease development. Not only does the new study provide further evidence of the role lncRNAs play in cancer, but it supports previous research hailing the anticancer effects of sulforaphane. It's obviously of interest that this dietary compound, found at some of its highest levels in broccoli, can affect lncRNAs, says principal study investigator Emily Ho, of the Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition and Preventive Health at OSU. This could open the door to a whole range of new dietary strategies, foods, or drugs that might play a role in cancer suppression or therapeutic control, she adds. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/316448.php Be sure to visit us at Twitter http://firstname.lastname@example.org link: http://stayingfittoday.com whatsnewmonty

Vitamin C is taking the fight to the "Big C." Scientists around the world are beginning to rethink how to fight cancer, and are looking to Vitamin C for help. Somewhere along the line, humans lost the ability to produce Vitamin C, and some scientists see this event as the point when human bodies began to deteriorate and became disease ridden without proper supplementation of Vitamin C from external sources. As ailments like heart disease, fibromyalgia, and cancer have ravaged human bodies, pioneering doctors like Ron Hunninghake from the Riordan Institute have developed new cancer treatment protocols using elevated dosages of Vitamin C with such promising results giving that big pharma has taken notice.

Although the current murine model of bone metastasis using intracardiac (IC) injection successfully recapitulates the process of bone metastasis, further progress in the study of bone metastasis requires a new model to circumvent some limitations of this model. Here, we present a new murine model of bone metastasis achieved by injecting cancer cells through the intra-caudal arterial (CA). This model does not require high technical proficiency, predominantly delivers cancer cells to bone marrow of hind limbs with much higher efficiency than IC injection, and greatly shortens the period of overt bone metastasis development. Moreover, CA injection barely causes acute death of mice, enabling us to inject a larger number of cancer cells to further accelerate the development of bone metastasis with a wide variety of cell lines. Our model may open a new avenue for understanding the bone metastatic processes and development of drugs preventing bone metastasis and recurrence.

Fish oil is one of the most eaten dietary supplements. It’s full of omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important for your health. Fish oil is the fat or oil that’s taken from fish tissue. It usually comes from oily fish like herring, tuna, anchovies, and mackerel. Sometimes it’s made form the livers of other fish, as is the case with cod liver oil. The World Health Organization (WHO) says to eat 1- 2 portions of fish every week. This is because the omega-3 fatty acids in fish has many health uses, like helping block some diseases. Another reason it’s important to get enough omega-3s is because the Western diet has traded a lot of omega-3s for omega-6s. This mixed-up rate of fatty acids may cause a lot of Western lifestyle diseases. If you don’t eat a lot of oily fish, taking a fish oil supplement could help you get enough omega-3 fatty acids. It’s important to note that the types of omega-3s found in fish oil have more health benefits than the omega-3s found in some plants. Here are some ways fish oil is helpful to your health. 1. Heart Health Studies have shown that people who eat a lot of fish have much lower rates of heart disease. 2. Brain Health Your brain is made up of nearly 60% fat, and much of this fat is omega-3 fatty acids. Therefore, omega-3s are important for the brain to work properly. In fact, some studies have shown that people with some mental disorders have lower omega-3 blood levels. Interestingly, studies have shown that taking fish oil can block or better the signs of some mental disorders. 3. Weight Loss Obesity can raise the risk of other diseases, like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and cancer. Using fish oil can better body composition and risk factors for heart disease in obese people. Also, fish oil can lower waist circumference. It may even help lower weight gain when used with other weight loss plans. 4. Reduce Inflammation Swelling is the immune system’s way of fighting infection and treating injuries to the body. But swelling can sometimes come at low levels over a long amount of time. This is called chronic inflammation. Fish oil brings down swelling and can help treat diseases that come with chronic inflammation. Also, taking fish oil can lessen joint pain, stiffness, and the need for medication in people with rheumatoid arthritis. 5. Skin Benefits The skin is the biggest organ in the human body, and it has a lot of omega-3 fatty acids. There are some skin disorders that can be helped by taking fish oil supplements. 6. Reduce Liver Fat Your liver breaks down most of the fat in your body and can be a big part of weight gain. Taking fish oil can help the liver work properly and bring down swelling, which may help lessen signs of NAFLD and the amount of fat in the liver. 7. Depression and Anxiety It’s said that depression will be the second leading cause of disease burden in the world by 2030. Interestingly, people with depression seem to have lower blood levels of omega-3s. Studies have shown that fish oil and taking omega-3 can lessen the signs of depression. 8. Prevent Mental Decline As you age, your brain slows down, and the risk for Alzheimer’s disease grows. If someone eats more fish, their brain will weaken slower in their old age. Studies have shown that fish oil may boost memory in healthy, older people. 9. Bone Health During old age, bones can start to lose their important minerals, which makes them more likely to break. This can lead to diseases like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Studies have shown that taking fish oil lowers signs of bone breakdown, which can help stop bone disease.

http://www.dailyrx.com/goserelin-might-help-prevent-ovarian-failure-and-allow-women-become-pregnant-after-breast-cancer It’s good news for young women who have had breast cancer treatment and still want a baby. A medication called goserelin may help prevent the ovarian failure often caused by chemotherapy. Women treated with goserelin (brand name Zoladex) were also more likely to become pregnant after chemotherapy than women who did not receive this medication. Goserelin may also improve overall survival rates for women with breast cancer.

Imetelstat, a novel drug that targets telomerase, has demonstrated potential value in treating patients with myelofibrosis, according to the results of a study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. "We observed that Imetelstat was active and induced morphologic and molecular remissions in some patients with myelofibrosis," says Ayalew Tefferi, M.D., a hematologist at Mayo Clinic and lead author of the study. "We also observed that Imtelstat demonstrated selective anti-clonal activity, inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, which we had not previously documented with other drugs." Myelofibrosis is a chronic myeloid cancer in which bone marrow cells that produce blood cells develop and function abnormally. The result is the formation of scar tissue in the bone marrow (fibrosis), severe anemia that often requires transfusion, weakness, fatigue, and an enlarged spleen and liver. Patients with myelofibrosis harbor one of several genetic mutations in their blood stem cells, including JAK2, MPL, CALR, ASXL1 and spliceosome pathway mutations.3317325_0009"Typically, myelofibrosis is characterized by marrow scarring, and, although patients may derive symptomatic relief from other treatments, such as ruxolitinib, they usually do not revert back to normal bone marrow," Dr. Tefferi says. "Some patients treated with Imetelstat have reverted back to normal bone marrow." Imetelstat works by inhibiting telomerase activity in tumor cells, which leads to cell death.

Sweet Potatoes: Health Benefits, Risks & Nutrition Facts Although they're soft and creamy enough to be put in pies and called dessert, sweet potatoes are also a surprisingly nutritious vegetable. "Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and, due to their orange color, are high in carotenoids," said San Diego-based nutritionist Laura Flores. Plus, they're fat-free, relatively low in sodium and have fewer calories than white potatoes — although they do have more sugar. Sweet potatoes are one of the best sources of vitamin A; a large one contains more than 100 percent of the daily recommended intake, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Vitamin A is an antioxidant powerhouse, and is linked to anti-aging benefits, cancer prevention and the maintenance of good eyesight, according to the National Institutes of Health. Although the orange variety is the most common in the United States, sweet potatoes also come in white, yellow, pink and purple varieties, according to the Library of Congress. While the orange and yellow types contain the most vitamin A, the purple sort is an excellent way to get antioxidants, the Cleveland Clinic reports. Here are the nutrition facts for sweet potatoes, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which regulates food labeling through the National Labeling and Education Act: So it's clear that while sweet potato pie might be soul food, sweet potatoes themselves are a whole-body vegetable. Health benefits Heart health Sweet potatoes are a great source of B6 vitamins, which are brilliant at breaking down homocysteine, a substance that contributes to the hardening of blood vessels and arteries, according to the Harvard University School of Public Health. Sweet potatoes' potassium content is also helpful for your heart, as it lowers blood pressure by maintaining fluid balance, as explained by the American Heart Association. Potassium is also an important electrolyte that helps regulate your heartbeat. Controlling blood sugar and maintaining energy For as sweet as they are, sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index (which means they release sugar slowly into the bloodstream). "Sweet potatoes — unlike other starchy foods that elevate blood sugar rapidly after [they're consumed] due to their metabolism into sugar — will help steady the levels of blood sugar," Flores said. This means you won't get blood-sugar spikes, but you will get a steady amount of energy. Flores noted that this regulation occurs even in people with type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, the Beauregard sweet potato, an orange-skinned variety grown in North Carolina, is similar to a white-skinned variety used in Japan to make a dietary supplement called Caiapo, which is marketed to control blood glucose in people with diabetes, according to an article in Perspectives, the magazine of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University. Researchers have found that the Beauregard "has essentially the same protein patterns" as Caiapo. Therefore, consuming sweet potatoes, or extracts from sweet potatoes, may help control blood glucose, and may someday provide a less expensive treatment with fewer side effects, said Jon Allen, a professor of food science at North Carolina State University. As if that weren't sweet enough, sweet potatoes are a terrific source of manganese, according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. Manganese helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and thus maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and it can even stabilize your appetite. It also helps the body utilize antioxidants. Stress According to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, sweet potatoes contain magnesium, the go-to mineral for destressing. It promotes relaxation, calmness and a good mood, as well as artery, blood, bone, muscle and nerve health, according to Psychology Today. Immunity and anti-inflammatory properties "Due to the color-pigmented vitamins, sweet potatoes are high in anti-inflammatory benefits," Flores said. One sweet potato contains about half of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C. Vitamins A and E also support a healthy immune system and are powerful disease-fighting antioxidants. While orange sweet potatoes contain more vitamin A, purple sweet potatoes are packed with the antioxidant anthocyanin, which is responsible for red, blue and purple colors in fruits and vegetables. According to the Linus Pauling Institute, pigment-related antioxidants have anti-inflammatory properties, which are beneficial to overall health and help mitigate inflammatory disorders. Skin and hair Vitamin A may help protect against sun damage, according to a 2004 study in the journal Clinical Cancer Research, and vitamins C and E are well-known for their beauty benefits. They encourage healthy, glowing skin and collagen growth.
