Andrea Wilson Woods is a writer who loves to tell stories, and a patient advocate who founded the nonprofit Blue Faery: The Adrienne Wilson Liver Cancer Association. Andrea is the CEO and co-founder of Cancer University, a for-profit, social-impact, digital health company. Her best-selling and award-winning book, Better Off Bald: A Life in 147 Days, is a medical memoir about raising and losing her sister, Adrienne, to liver cancer. ✨A few highlights from the show: 1. Even if there is resistance from the provider and healthcare team, always ask questions. Ask many as you need to ask until you get the information that you need in a way that you understand it. Your life or your loved one's life can depend on it. 2. You have to be a force of nature. You have to stand up for the patient because the patient's focus needs to be on getting well and resting. Often the patient doesn't have the time or energy to participate in those conversations. So the caregiver, whether it's a spouse or a friend, or a parent or sibling, the onus is on the caregiver often to take charge. 3. Always keep track of your medical records. Keep them organized in a binder and in a place where you can easily access them. It is a good idea to have electronic and paper copies. Always keep a medical journal with your notes and observations.

A new research paper was published in Oncotarget's Volume 14 on January 12, 2023, entitled, “Targeting CD74 in B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma with the antibody-drug conjugate STRO-001.” Overexpression of CD74, a type II transmembrane glycoprotein involved in MHC class II antigen presentation, has been reported in many B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) and in multiple myeloma (MM). STRO-001 is a site-specific, predominantly single-species antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) that targets CD74 and has demonstrated efficacy in xenograft models of MM and tolerability in non-human primates. In this new study, researchers Xiaofan Li, Cristina Abrahams, Abigail Yu, Millicent Embry, Robert Henningsen, Venita DeAlmeida, Shannon Matheny, Toni Kline, Alice Yam, Ryan Stafford, Trevor Hallam, Mark Lupher, and Arturo Molina from Sutro Biopharma reported the results of preclinical studies designed to elucidate the potential role of STRO-001 in B-cell NHL. “In order to explore the potential of STRO-001 in NHL, in the present study we investigated CD74 expression in cell types found in bone marrow, evaluated its cytotoxicity in NHL cell lines, and assessed its antitumor efficacy and toxicity in xenograft models of NHL.” STRO-001 displayed nanomolar and sub-nanomolar cytotoxicity in 88% (15/17) of cancer cell lines tested. STRO-001 showed potent cytotoxicity on proliferating B cells while limited cytotoxicity was observed on naïve human B cells. A linear dose-response relationship was demonstrated in vivo for DLBCL models SU-DHL-6 and U2932. Tumor regression was induced at doses less than 5 mg/kg, while maximal activity with complete cures were observed starting at 10 mg/kg. In MCL Mino and Jeko-1 xenografts, STRO-001 starting at 3 mg/kg significantly prolonged survival or induced tumor regression, respectively, leading to tumor eradication in both models. “In summary, high CD74 expression levels in tumors, nanomolar cellular potency, and significant anti-tumor in DLBCL and MCL xenograft models support the ongoing clinical study of STRO-001 in patients with B-cell NHL.” DOI: https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.28341 Correspondence to: Xiaofan Li - firstname.lastname@example.org, Arturo Molina - email@example.com Keywords: CD74, antibody-drug conjugate, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, xenograft models, STRO-001 About Oncotarget: Oncotarget (a primarily oncology-focused, peer-reviewed, open access journal) aims to maximize research impact through insightful peer-review; eliminate borders between specialties by linking different fields of oncology, cancer research and biomedical sciences; and foster application of basic and clinical science.

Faithfully ServingJeff Haymond can be easily spotted on campus as he drives up in his vintage Cutlass convertible. But his love for vintage cars is just one small thing that makes his life interesting. Jeff served in the United States Air Force for 29 years, reaching the rank of Colonel before retiring in 2010. During those 29 years, Jeff collected numerous stories. But one he will never forget was his day at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Not only did he serve his country, but he also served a stranger in a remarkable way. While on a base in California, Jeff and other military members all donated blood, with the possibility of being matched with a recipient in need. Later he got a phone call saying his blood was a life-saving match for a 15-year-old Australian girl. Without hesitation, Jeff donated his stem cells to a girl with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, knowing he'd never meet her. After retiring from the military, Cedarville had a faculty opening, and Jeff decided to pursue it. He started as a professor of business, moved to assistant chair, and now finds himself the Dean of the Robert W. Plaster School of Business. Jeff is passionate about equipping and training his students to be prepared to face a hostile culture as they enter the business world after graduation.

Megan Clifford, a.k.a. Disney, was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin's lymphoma when she was just 11 years old. Being diagnosed at such a young age, she often struggled to relate to her peers, find social support, and develop her own identity and voice. Once she reached her 20s, Disney took it upon herself to seek out support and found Epic Experience. At camp, she realized that she needed a community that understood what she had endured in her childhood years. Cancer has now been a part of her life for over 20 years, and Disney has taken those personal experiences and transformed them into a career in the oncology industry.
Prof. Dr. Ralf Küppers is the director of Institute of Cell Biology (Tumor Research), University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany. The work of Prof. Küppers revolves around B cell differentiation and function together with pathogenesis of human B cell lymphomas - both Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We discuss how micro-dissection and Sanger sequencing is still the method of choice when analysing Hodgkin lymphoma and the V-gene usage and mutations in CLL as prognostic indicators before talking about tracking pathogenic clones when surveying for relapse during clinical follow up. The episode is hosted by Dr. Ulrik Stervbo and Dr. Zhaoqing Ding. Comments are welcome to the inbox of email@example.com or on social media under the tag #onAIRR.

Lane Stokes spent five years as an ordained minister before moving toward counseling. Unlike most ministers, he pursued mental health rather than pastoral counseling. He believed it would help him to better understand his clients in whatever type of therapy he would offer. In the past 34 years of private practice as a mental health clinician, and marriage and family counselor, he believes that he was correct in that assumption. During the first 32 years, he developed programs to make marriage counseling quicker and thus less expensive. Lane helps people understand how their emotions operate and how to control them to give the person a way to obtain their needs and desires. He made a big discovery that he now refers to as Counseling Condensed Courses. They can give the participant abilities in three to five sessions that it has taken others three to five years to learn. One of these is the course "Let Us Teach You How to be Married" for married or unmarried couples. Another is "How Others Perceive You". ✨A few highlights from the show: 1. Anxiety isn't a rooted emotion. The rooted emotion is fear. 2. Your personality changes right after you get married. 3. People don't go to counseling because they don't know what is possible in marriage.

Angel Scale Biotech: Learn More Stephane Allard, MD and Peter MacGuire of Alissa Pharma explained the company's promising approach to treating cancers like Hodgkin's lymphoma or pancreatic cancer which over-express a certain protein on the surface of tumor cells. Alissa's therapy targets this protein with antibodies linked to radioactive material that decays quickly. The result is destruction of tumor cells with reduced toxicity. A really compelling chat. Sponsored by Purdue University entrepreneurship and Peter Fasse, patent attorney at Fish and Richardson. Highlights: Sal Daher Introduces Stephane Allard and Peter MacGuire What Alissa Pharma is Solving "... Then we can look at different indication because we already have preclinical data indicating that the product, the anti-ferritin combined with the radiotherapy could work in pancreatic cancer, in hepatic cancer, and in neuroblastoma..." How the Idea of the Product Came About "...What you've done is you have been able to create a more usable manufacturable chemistry ... which gives you better results, more stable results of the binding of the antibodies to the radioactive tracers or radioactive therapy..."

When Andrew Buerger's sister was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer, her courage and strength spurred Andy to turn pain into a passion. Andy founded Jodi's Climb for Hope, which raised more than $900,000 for research by leading mountain-climbing expeditions-an apt metaphor for the struggles women affected by breast cancer endure. In 2008 tragedy struck again when Andy's wife Jen was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Jodi's Climb for Hope expanded the scope of its mission into multiple sclerosis research as well. On an expedition in Iceland, Andy discovered something that he developed into B'More Organic, a protein drink that Inc. magazine ranked as the fifth fastest-growing natural brand. With engaging mountaineering, business, and personal stories, Andrew shares the guiding principles that have helped him navigate the peaks and valleys of his life. ✨A few highlights from the show: 1.

Becoming Alcohol-free is not easy; it is a journey that takes us to unexpected places such as redefining relationships, perusing mocktail recipes and figuring out what to do with an extra 2 to 5 hours a night. But, along the way, we get to find ourselves again. We get to venture deeper into our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. We start to trust ourselves and we slowly start to believe that everything is not only going to be alright, it's actually going to be better. Meet my friend Cheryl Hendry. Cheryl was several months along on her AF journey, challenging herself and learning lots of tools to navigate these new thoughts and emotions. And then she got sick. At first, Cheryl thought it was her gallbladder. A series of tests led to more tests and then a routine CT scan. Later that day, Cheryl received a call from her doctor: Cancer. In our interview today, Cheryl shares her journey fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We talk about the support she found from her alcohol-free community, her firm foundation, and her doctor's question that prompted an outpouring of gratitude. Cheryl also tackles the question, Is Cancer A Gift?. In the show notes, you can find Cheryl's list "6 reasons I No Longer Drink" and a link to my free guide "5 Healthy Reasons To Take A Break" so you can start building your firm foundation.

Jessica Stapleton, a.k.a. “Tree Hugger,” is a Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor who attended an Epic Experience weeklong camp this past summer. Before camp, Tree Hugger thought she was doing just fine with her cancer journey. Through her week of trying new activities and connecting with other survivors, however, she realized she hadn't truly processed her cancer experience. Tree Hugger came home with a new "Yes I can!" attitude that she's carried into her everyday life. It wasn't until her newfound mentality of “Yes I can” did she learn how amazing it felt to live life to the fullest, connect emotionally with others, and truly process her cancer survivorship.

Videos : Niall Ferguson – Woke Totalitarianism (0:19 to 18:14) Heather Mac Donald On How The Delusion of Diversity Destroys Our Common Humanity (11:14) Elon Musk: “Klaus Schwab Is LYING!!!” (9:45) Lycopene, lutein supplements show skin protection from within against UV radiation Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine (Germany), November 10, 2022 The study's findings, published in the British Journal of Dermatology , indicated that oral supplementation with the carotenoids changed the expression of genes that are indicators of oxidative stress, photo-dermatoses and photo-aging. “To the best of our knowledge we show here for the 1st time that (i) tomato nutrient complex as well as lutein do not only protect healthy human skin against UVB/A, but also against long wave UVA1 radiation, and (ii) that oral photo-protection of healthy human skin can be demonstrated at the level of HO-1, ICAM-1 and MMP-1 gene expression,” wrote researchers from IUF – Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine in Dusseldorf. Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) are reported to be UVA1/UVB radiation-inducible genes. “On top of that, as part of the photo-aging process we have evidence of the effect of our ingredients on the levels of expression of genes involved in collagen degradation, suggesting a link not only to skin health but also to skin appearance. This study suggests an effect of natural antioxidants on overall skin wellness, which is relevant for men and women in all age groups.” The new study included 65 healthy volunteers aged between 18 and 60. The participants were randomly assigned to randomly consume 20 mg per day of the tomato nutrient complex or placebo for 12 weeks, or 20 mg per day of lutein or placebo for 12 weeks. A two-week washout period separated the placebo and active intervention periods. At the beginning and at the end of each phase the skin was irradiated.Results of the placebo-controlled, double blinded, randomized cross-over study indicated that the tomato nutrient complex (TNC) totally inhibited the upregulation of HO-1, ICAM-1 and MMP1 mRNA by both UVA1 and UVA/B. On the other hand, lutein only completely inhibited gene expression if taken during the first 12 weeks (ie. prior to placebo), while a significantly smaller effect was observed if it was taken during the second 12 week phase (ie. after placebo), compared to TNC. (NEXT) Diallyl trisulfide in garlic induces apoptosis in primary effusion lymphoma Kyoto Pharmaceutical University (Japan), November 7, 2022 Reports from Kyoto Pharmaceutical University stated, “The allyl sulfides, including diallyl sulfide (DAS), diallyl disulfide (DAD), and diallyl trisulfide (DAT), contained in garlic and members of the Allium family, have a variety of pharmacological activities. Therefore, allyl sulfides have been evaluated as potential novel chemotherapeutic agents.” Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, “Here, we found that DAT inhibited nuclear factor-kB (NF-kB) signaling and induced apoptosis in primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), a subtype of non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma caused by Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). We examined the cytotoxic effects of DAS, DAD and DAT on PEL cells. DAT significantly reduced the viability of PEL cells compared with uninfected B-lymphoma cells, and induced the apoptosis of PEL cells by activating caspase-9. DAT induced stabilization of IkBa, and suppressed NF-kB transcriptional activity in PEL cells. We examined the mechanism underlying DAT-mediated IkBa stabilization. The results indicated that DAT stabilized IkBa by inhibiting the phosphorylation of IkBa by the IkB kinase (IKK) complex. Furthermore, DAT induced proteasomal degradation of TRAF6, and DAT suppressed IKKb-phosphorylation through downregulation of TRAF6. It is known that activation of NF-kB is essential for survival of PEL cells. In fact, the NF-kB inhibitor BAY11-7082 induced apoptosis in PEL cells. In addition, DAT suppressed the production of progeny virus from PEL cells. The administration of DAT suppressed the development of PEL cells and ascites in SCID mice xenografted with PEL cells.” According to the news editors, the research concluded: “These findings provide evidence that DAT has antitumor activity against PEL cells in-vitro and in-vivo, suggesting it to be a novel therapeutic agent for the treatment of PEL.” (NEXT) PTSD May Speed Up Cellular Aging Boston University, November 13, 2022 From birth to death, a lot may change, but our DNA—the long, double-helix molecule that contains all of a person's genetic code—stays the same. The instructions for reading that code can shift, however, as the chemical tags on and around a DNA sequence change throughout our lives, depending on our age, environment, and behavior. This outside influence on how our genes are read and expressed by cells is called epigenetics—and researchers studying it have discovered clues that may show why some veterans live longer than others. In a new study of military veterans published in Translational Psychiatry, researchers report findings that suggest former service personnel with PTSD are at greater risk of early death. “Our study found that PTSD and comorbid conditions, like substance misuse, are associated with a cellular marker of early death found in DNA methylation patterns,” says Erika Wolf, a professor of psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine and senior author of the study. The study included two samples of veterans that had representative levels of trauma and other psychiatric conditions, like substance use and personality disorders. One group included 434 veterans in their early 30s, who had served in post-9/11 conflicts; the other group included 647 middle-age veterans and their trauma-exposed spouses. Both groups were assessed for a range of psychological conditions, and had blood drawn to obtain genetic information and to test for levels of a variety of inflammatory molecules. The results indicate PTSD symptoms were a factor in faster cellular aging—.36 of a year faster. So, for every year that the cells of someone without PTSD age, the cells of someone with more severe PTSD symptoms age a year and a third. (NEXT) Higher sense of purpose in life may be linked to lower mortality risk Boston University, November 14, 2022 Growing research indicates that one's purpose—i.e., the extent to which someone perceives a sense of direction and goals in their life—may be linked to health-protective benefits such as better physical functioning and lower risks of cardiovascular disease or cognitive decline. Now, a new study led by a Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) researcher found that people with higher levels of purpose may have a lower risk of death from any cause, and that this association is applicable across race/ethnicity and gender. Published in the journal Preventive Medicine, the study results did suggest that this association is slightly stronger among women than it is among men, but there was no significant difference by race/ethnicity. “In another study I led, we found that the effect of purpose on lowering all-cause mortality may differ by socioeconomic status. In this study, we extended the prior evidence and found that the beneficial effect of purpose persisted regardless of gender and race/ethnicity.” For the study, the team assessed self-reported sense of purpose among more than 13,000 people, based on the “purpose in life” of the Ryff Psychological Well-being Scales, a widely used tool that measures different aspects of well-being and happiness. The researchers also examined mortality risk over an eight-year period beginning between 2006-2008. The results showed that people with the highest sense of purpose indicated the lowest risk of death (15.2 percent mortality risk), compared to people with the lowest sense of purpose (36.5 percent mortality risk). The team also gathered data on additional factors that can influence health, such socioeconomic status, other demographic characteristics, baseline physical health, and depression, and found that an increase in these factors was also associated with increases in a higher sense of purpose. (NEXT) Hibiscus compound shows anti-Alzheimer disease activity Pohang University of Science and Technology, November 16 2022. A report published in Alzheimer's Research & Therapy revealed that gossypetin, a flavonoid occurring in the calyx of the hibiscus flower, activates a process that reduces brain accumulation of amyloid beta, a protein that clumps to form toxic brain plaques in people with Alzheimer disease. Gossypetin has been reported to have antioxidant, antiatherosclerotic and anticancer effects. Earlier research had suggested a benefit for gossypetin, which is structurally similar to quercetin, against the aggregation of amyloid beta and tau proteins that occurs in Alzheimer disease. However, gossypetin's action in animal models of the disease had not been evaluated. Researchers at Pohang University of Science and Technology administered gossypetin or a control substance to mice that were bred to develop a condition similar to that of Alzheimer disease in humans. After 13 weeks of daily treatment, mice that received the flavonoid had less amyloid beta in the brain's hippocampus (an area involved in memory and learning) and cortex in comparison with the control mice. Gossypetin-treated animals also demonstrated better spatial learning and memory than untreated mice. Rather than affecting the production of amyloid beta, the research team found that gossypetin helped clear it by enhancing the scavenging ability of the brain's immune cells, which are known as microglia. Microglia normally consume amyloid beta but can become exhausted by continual exposure, which leads to a chronic damaging inflammatory reaction. (NEXT) Over a billion young people are potentially at risk of hearing loss from headphones, earbuds, loud music venues Mayo Clinic, November 15, 2022 More than 1 billion teens and young people are potentially at risk of hearing loss because of their use of headphones and earbuds and attendance at loud music venues, concludes a pooled data analysis of the available evidence, published in the open access journal BMJ Global Health. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 430 million people worldwide currently have disabling hearing loss. Young people are particularly vulnerable because of their use of personal listening devices (PLDs), such as smartphones, headphones and earbuds, and attendance at loud music venues, amid poor regulatory enforcement. Previously published research suggests that PLD users often choose volumes as high as 105 dB while average sound levels at entertainment venues range from 104 to 112 dB, exceeding permissible levels (80 dB for adults; 75 dB for children) even if for very short periods of time. A group of 33 studies, corresponding to data from 35 records and 19,046 participants, was included; 17 records focused on PLD use and 18 focused on loud entertainment venues. The pooled data analysis indicates that the prevalence of unsafe listening practices from PLD use and attendance at loud entertainment venues is common worldwide—24% and 48%, respectively, among teens and young people. Based on these figures, the researchers estimate that the global number of teens and young adults who could potentially be at risk of hearing loss as a result ranges from 0.67 to 1.35 billion.
