New study shows yoga can regulate stress hormones and improve quality of life for women with breast cancer undergoing radiation therapy. For women with breast cancer undergoing radiation therapy, yoga offers unique benefits beyond fighting fatigue, according to research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The preliminary findings were first reported in 2011 by Lorenzo Cohen, Ph.D., professor and director of the Integrative Medicine Program at MD Anderson, and are now published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. This research is part of an ongoing effort to scientifically validate mind-body interventions in cancer patients and was conducted in collaboration with India's largest yoga research institution, Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana in Bangalore, India. http://www.mdanderson.org/education-and-research/departments-programs-and-labs/programs-centers-institutes/integrative-medicine-program/index.html Researchers found that while simple stretching exercises counteracted fatigue, patients who participated in yoga exercises that incorporated controlled breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques into their treatment plan experienced improved ability to engage in their daily activities, better general health and better regulation of cortisol (stress hormone). Women in the yoga group were also better equipped to find meaning in the illness experience, which declined over time for the women in the other two groups. The study also assessed, for the first time, yoga benefits in cancer patients by comparing their experience with patients in an active control group who integrated simple, generic stretching exercises into their lives. "Combining mind and body practices that are part of yoga clearly have tremendous potential to help patients manage the psychosocial and physical difficulties associated with treatment and life after cancer, beyond the benefits of simple stretching," said Cohen. To conduct the study, 191 women with breast cancer (stage 0-3) were randomized to one of three groups: 1) yoga; 2) simple stretching; or 3) no instruction in yoga or stretching. Participants in the yoga and stretching groups attended sessions specifically tailored to breast cancer patients for one-hour, three days a week throughout their six weeks of radiation treatment. Participants were asked to report on their quality of life, including levels of fatigue and depression, their daily functioning and a measure assessing ability to find meaning in the illness experience. Saliva samples were collected and electrocardiogram tests were administered at baseline, end of treatment, and at one, three and six months post-treatment. Women who practiced yoga had the steepest decline in their cortisol levels across the day, indicating that yoga had the ability to help regulate this stress hormone. This is particularly important because higher stress hormone levels throughout the day, known as a blunted circadian cortisol rhythm, have been linked to worse outcomes in breast cancer. Additionally, after completing radiation treatment, only the women in the yoga and stretching groups reported a reduction in fatigue. At one, three and six months after radiation therapy, women who practiced yoga during the treatment period reported greater benefits to physical functioning and general health. They were more likely to find life meaning from their cancer experience than the other groups. According to Cohen, research shows that developing a yoga practice also helps patients after completing cancer treatment. "The transition from active therapy back to everyday life can be very stressful as patients no longer receive the same level of medical care and attention. Teaching patients a mind-body technique like yoga as a coping skill can make the transition less difficult." Through a grant from the National Cancer Institute, Cohen and his team are now conducting a Phase III clinical trial in women with breast cancer to further determine the mechanisms of yoga that lead to improvement in physical functioning, quality of life and biological outcomes during and after radiation treatment. A secondary aim of the trial, but one of great importance, stressed Cohen, is assessing cost efficiency analysis for the hospital, health care usage costs in general and examining work productivity of patients. MD Anderson recognizes the growing body of research indicating that relaxation-based interventions can contribute to the well-being of people with cancer. Through the Integrative Medicine Program, complementary therapies, such as yoga, are offered at MD Anderson's Integrative Medicine Center, and are used in concert with mainstream care to manage symptoms, relieve stress, enhance quality of life and improve outcomes for patients and their caregivers.

In this video Q&A, we talk to Iain Frame and Sarah Cant from Prostate Cancer UK about the current challenges in prostate cancer research and policy and how these are being addressed. Read the full interview: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1741-7015/13/166 Visit Prostate Cancer UK: http://prostatecanceruk.org/ *** Iain Frame (IF): I think that there are three current challenges in prostate cancer research. The first is risk assessment – assessing a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer during his lifetime. The second is differential diagnosis and prognosis of aggressive versus non-aggressive cancer. The third is developing new treatments for advanced disease, but also working out how best to use existing treatments for optimal effect. These three areas are important because they are the three key areas that affect the outcome of a man’s diagnosis of having prostate cancer. There are a number of risk assessment tools effectively on the market that have been developed and validated. The problem is that they are not really in routine use. We looked at what was out there, and who was developing them, and we decided to develop a risk assessment tool that was suitable to be delivered through primary care, that was going to be reliable, relatively cheap, and suitable for a multi-ethnic population. […] Sarah Cant (SC): Diagnosis needs to be improved in two ways. There needs to be a better way of diagnosing that a man actually has a prostate cancer, in an easy way, but also that, prognostically, clinicians can understand whether or not that disease is going to harm that man in his lifetime, and how best to treat it. It is a very key role in the whole prostate cancer journey. One of the biggest issues is whether screening can be developed. Is there a tool or a test that can be developed in the future that would allow screening for men? That is a big policy question, and it is a big policy challenge. We know that the PSA test is not effective for screening at a population level, but we believe there must be something out there in the future that could help men understand their risk of developing the disease, whether they go on to have further tests, and whether there is a way of diagnosing and detecting aggressive cancers at an early stage, so that we can reduce the number of deaths from prostate cancer. IF: It is also important to monitor treatment. We need to be able to follow whether a treatment is working effectively or not. At the moment, it is purely based on PSA. We need to look at other biological markers or genetic markers that will determine whether or not a man is responding to treatment, and if not, then get him off that treatment and onto another treatment sooner. I think, ultimately, what I would like to see is the diagnostic and prognostic tests fitting in with the risk assessment, so they can be done at the same time. Yes, you’re at risk of prostate cancer – or, yes you do have prostate cancer – it is aggressive, and it will respond to this treatment. If we can obtain more knowledge as a package, it will help develop better treatments and we will be able to offer a man a better deal with greater availability of different treatment choices. SC: The final gap in care is in terms of support. At the moment, treatments do come with side effects. Many of those are unavoidable, but men can be supported – sometimes from before the treatment starts – to reduce the impact of that side effect, be that incontinence or erectile dysfunction, be that the psychological impact of prostate cancer, fatigue, or bowel incontinence. […] IF: Additionally, I think that we need to be looking at repurposing of existing drugs. We have seen some evidence coming through where drugs that have been used for different cancers could be potentially beneficial in prostate cancer. Repurposing drugs helps drugs to reach the market more cheaply; they have less of the rigorous trials to go through because they have already undergone a lot of safety testing. SC: From a policy perspective, there are some key areas for future development. We do need to really invest in research and advances in diagnosis and treatment and prevention, but we also need to use those advances – the advances that are coming through now – and translate that into the best possible care for men now. If we could ensure that every man across the country has the best available care today, we would already see improvements in outcomes. If we can build on that by ensuring that new advances and cost-effective new treatments are able to reach men quickly, then we would see even better outcomes for men. I think this is where we need to be focussing in the future. *** Music "Little Black Cloud" and "Grapefruit" by Podington Bear Available on the Free Music Archive: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Podington_Bear/Pensive_2/Little_Black_Cloud_1203 http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Podington_Bear/Pensive_2/Grapefruit_1062 CC BY-NC 3.0 licence

Patients with a rare, aggressive lymphoma caused by the Epstein Barr virus are finding new hope thanks to a treatment study at The James, where lymphoma research experts are looking for -- and discovering -- ways to attack the virus.
http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org At Cincinnati Children’s, researchers have made a remarkable discovery involving the virus that causes mono. In a recently published study, scientists report the Epstein-Barr virus also increases the risks for some people of developing seven other major diseases. The diseases include systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), multiple sclerosis (MS), rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), celiac disease, and type 1 diabetes. “This discovery is probably fundamental enough that it will spur many scientists around the world to reconsider the role of this virus in these disorders,” said John Harley, MD, PhD, director of the Center for Autoimmune Genomics and Etiology (CAGE) at Cincinnati Children’s. Dr. John Harley is the lead researcher and director of the Center for Autoimmune Genomics and Etiology. He has devoted much of his career to studying lupus and a connection to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). This most recent study shows that a protein produced by the virus, called EBNA-2, binds to multiple locations along the human genome that are associated with lupus and the six other diseases. So environmental factors, such as viral or bacterial infections, poor diets, pollution, can interact with the human genetic blueprint and as a result influence the risk for disease. “Now that we can do genomics that we couldn’t do 10 years ago, we asked the question well does the genomics of the virus interact with the host in a way that would be consistent with the possibility the virus might be causing the disease. So the answer to that so far is yes,” said Harley. “Not just for Lupus but all these other diseases too.” The Cincinnati Children’s research team at CAGE looked at how EBV takes over. It’s a process that involves tiny proteins called transcription factors. These proteins constantly move along the strands of our DNA turning specific genes on and off to make sure cells function as expected. “Before we’ve always thought about the transcription factors that regulate human gene expression being human which makes sense. But in this case, when this virus infects cells, it makes its own transcription factors and those sit on the human genome at Lupus risk variants and that’s what is increasing the risk for the disease,” said Leah Kottyna, PhD, an immunobiology expert with CAGE. To closer analyze the synergy between disease genetics and the Epstein-Barr virus, Dr. Matthew Weirauch, a computational biologist and his team at CAGE gathered massive sets of genetic data. Then, researchers created two new algorithms analyzing every genetic change affecting the activity of the virus. Through computer generated images, color blocks represent clusters of transcription factors. the more boxes filled in, the stronger the implications of the proteins in the disease. “That is basically saying that this same cast of characters is a villain in multiple autoimmune diseases. They’re playing that role through different ways, and doing it at different places in your genome, but it’s the same sinister characters and so if we could develop therapies to stop them from doing this then it would help multiple diseases,” said Weirauch. So far, no vaccine exists to prevent EBV infection. Researchers at CAGE hope their study will help expedite efforts that are currently underway. At Cincinnati Children’s, the research team at CAGE is already taking next steps. Their findings have already uncovered potential leads for many other diseases, including breast cancer. “The hope would be we could understand these disorders at a level that we could eliminate them. And so just the idea that scientific progress is entirely possible and we can make a difference and we can move things forward. This I hope turns out to be a small step in that direction,” said Harley.

(5 Jun 2017) LEADIN: Cancer patients are being urged to speak out about their symptoms after a study showing it can improve their chances of survival. Doctors studied a group of patients who were given home computers so they could report symptoms such as nausea and fatigue more quickly and they discovered patients improved their survival rate by almost half a year, outperforming some new cancer drugs. STORYLINE: If you're being treated for cancer, speak up about your symptoms. A study shows that patients using home computers to report problems like nausea and fatigue improved their survival rate by almost half a year. The online tool was intended as a quick and easy way for people to regularly report symptoms rather than trying to call their doctors, or waiting until their next appointment. Doctors hoped the questionaire would improve the patient's quality of life, but it also showed an improved survival rate. Dr. Ethan Basch is a researcher at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He explains: "So, in this study, we used a very simple online tool. This was an electronic questionnaire, through a web platform. And patients could self-report twelve very common and bothersome symptoms, using this platform, either from home, between visits, or when they came into the office, sitting in the waiting room before they saw their doctor and nurse." Basch and his colleagues were stunned by the results. He says: "So what we found was that was 31 percent of patients had improved quality of life, at six months, when they were using this symptom self-reporting tool, compared to standard care. We found that there was a 7 percent reduction in visits to the emergency room and we found that there was a two-month prolongation in how long people could tolerate receiving chemotherapy." The study was featured at the cancer group's annual meeting in Chicago on Sunday. Earlier studies suggest doctors miss about half of patients' symptoms. Sometimes patients just put up with a problem until their next exam. The study tested whether the online tool could catch symptoms sooner. It involved 766 people being treated for various types of advanced cancers at Sloan Kettering. Some were given usual care and the rest, the online symptom tool. Patients were aged up to ninety-one years old and although 22 percent of them had didn't have a high school education, using the computer proved easy. The online group was asked to report symptoms at least once a week and sooner if they had a problem. They were given a list of common problems such as appetite loss, constipation, cough, diarrhoea, shortness of breath, fatigue, hot flashes, nausea or pain. Doctors saw these reports at office visits, and nurses received email alerts when patients reported severe or worsening symptoms. Basch says: "So if we have a tool that can help us to better control people's symptoms and side effects, often times that means that we can continue chemotherapy for a longer period of time. And in this context, given that many of these chemotherapies are life-prolonging, this can potentially have an impact on people's longevity." During the study nurses responded immediately as much as eighty percent of the time. Six months later the patients in the study group reported their health-related quality of life had improved, they made fewer trips to an emergency room and were able to stay on chemotherapy up to two months longer on average. Median survival in the online group was 31 months versus 26 months for the others. In New York colon cancer patient James Sylvester is using a version of the one tested in the study to report his symptoms to his doctors at Sloan Kettering.

Pediatric cancer awareness month (http://bit.ly/18J6YMf) is recognized during September and Nationwide Children's Hospital cancer researchers (http://bit.ly/18J89LK) are studying a potential alternative to treat tumors, while preventing devastating side effects. Dr. Timothy Cripe (http://bit.ly/18J6plI) and his team are looking into how common cold sore viruses can actually help treat children diagnosed with certain types of cancers including neuroblastoma (http://bit.ly/18J9pyp) and sarcoma (http://bit.ly/18J9H8A). The approach is called viral therapy, which involves slightly altering a virus in the lab, injecting it directly into a solid cancer tumor which then causes the tumor to shrink and disappear altogether. For the damage that the virus does to the tumor, it does not have any effect on the healthy tissue surrounding the tumor and cells throughout the body. That means there are very few, if any, side effects from the treatment, and patients would not have to experience the common side effects from chemotherapy including hair loss, fatigue, nausea and weight loss/gain. Viral therapy has been studied in adults, though Nationwide Children's is one of only a few institutions studying it in kids.

Numerous external factors contribute to nursing burnout. Pediatric intensive care nurse, Alina Sato, discusses her personal struggle with burnout and how an internal experience with grief was the biggest culprit. But rather than giving in, she learned to reframe her natural response to pain and suffering, and instead of resisting it as a “thief of life,” came to embrace it as life-giving. Alina is a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) nurse. Prior to becoming a nurse, she conducted research amongst the frail elderly in nursing homes, which included toileting, feeding, and exercise interventions to demonstrate the need for greater staffing levels. The research work motivated her to become a bedside nurse, as she found herself drawn to both the science and the art of skillful, wholehearted nursing. Alina is now passionate about giving voice to the oft-hidden heart experience of nurses as they work in vulnerable closeness to the sick, suffering, and dying. As such, her writing has been featured in Off the Charts, the blog for the American Journal of Nursing (AJN), and the Oxford Handbook of Meaningful Work. Her essay titled “Intimate Strangers” will be published in the August 2017 edition of AJN. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Dr Ali Cooper from men’s health charity Prostate Cancer UK talks to Arise News about their new research study that found that one in four black men across the country will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime - double the risk faced by white men in the UK. The charity is taking to the road this summer in a double decker bus to bring an urgent health warning to the nation’s black men – know your risk of prostate cancer – and if you’re aged 45 or over speak to your doctor about it as it could save your life.

This is based on knowledge I have aquired mainly from books and the internet. I believe I am well today because of the research I have done and the excellent treatment from the Christies in Manchester. I am a cardiac nurse and like hard facts. Drs are not all aquainted with the drugs I obtain from Harley street. The drugs have been repurposed to help starve the cancer and kill stem cells also preventing chemotherapy resistance and work well alongside chemotherapy. This was my choice and Im not saying you have to take notice but I believe the addition of the drugs from Harley street are saving/prolonging my life. Most recently I only had one brain tumour to treat. 5 more disappeared. 18 brain tumours have previously been treated. I am reasonably and well at the moment.

Dr. John Bell and his team have been investigating cancer-fighting (oncolytic) viruses at Ottawa Hospital Research Institute for more than 10 years. Researchers from the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI), the University of Ottawa (uOttawa), Jennerex Inc. and several other institutions reported promising results of a world-first cancer therapy trial in renowned journal Nature. The trial is the first to show that an intravenously-delivered viral therapy can consistently infect and spread within tumours without harming normal tissues in humans.

This video is part of an online training program titled, “NIOSH Training for Nurses on Shift Work and Long Work Hours” DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2015-115). Because of the need for nursing services around the clock, some nurses have to work during the evening and at night. At times, long work hours cannot be avoided. These work schedules can cause problems with sleep and circadian rhythms and can strain family and social life. Several nurses share their personal experiences regarding these challenges.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4GilZA_vPM from original source The criminalization of science whistleblowers: A mind-blowing interview with Judy Mikovits, PhD https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-0... In one of the most shocking science videos you’ll see this year, molecular biologist Judy A. Mikovits, PhD, reveals the disturbing true story of how she was thrown in prison for blowing the whistle on deadly viral contamination of human vaccines. With a well established history of working for the National Cancer Institute as a cancer research, Dr. Mikovits worked with human retroviruses like HIV. Her work focused on immunotherapy research and involved HIV. In 2009, she was working on autism and related neurological diseases. She found that many of the study subjects has cancer, motor-neuron disorders and chronic fatigue Syndrome (CFS). She believed a virus may have been responsible for these symptoms, and through her research, she isolated the viruses that turned out to come from mice. She soon realized that these protein and viral contaminants were being introduced into the human population via contaminated vaccines. “Twenty-five million Americans are infected with the viruses that came out of the lab… into the humans via contaminated blood and vaccines.” In response to this discovery, she was fired from her job, indicted, prosecuted, jailed and ordered to retract her research and publicly claim she “made it all up.” She refused to cover up the scientific evidence and was targeted and punished by the “vaccine deep state” establishment. She was actually thrown in prison. “Just dragged out of my house in shackles… I refused to denounce the data… we have the data… they basically said tell everybody you made it all up and you can go home. If you don’t, we’ll destroy you. And they did.” This is what modern “science” has come to. Watch the full, astonishing video below, and check out Dr. Mikovitz’ book, Plague: One Scientists Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases.
