Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have established the safety and dosing of a new drug for treating blood cancers. The findings are published online July 27 in The Lancet Haematology.

The drug is a small molecule inhibitor that suppresses the activity of a signaling pathway believed to contribute to a variety of blood cancers’ eventual resistance to standard chemotherapy treatments.  

More specifically, preclinical research, funded in part by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), has shown that the drug coaxes dormant cancer stem cells, residing in the bone marrow, to begin differentiating and exit into the blood stream where they can be destroyed by chemotherapy agents targeting dividing cells.

The Value of Pathology
Dr. Keith J. Kaplan | July 20, 2015 |
Last month this blog turned 8 years old with nearly 2,700 posts to date or about 330 posts per year on average.  Along the way in addition to news items, my thoughts, stories and remembrances of medical education and the like there have been a few guest posts.

The 1,000th post was a guest post by another pathologist, Dr. Ed Uthman entitled “Online Pathology: Moving Forward, Standing Still“. A few other pathologists and some industry leaders have contributed as well over the years.

But in the 8 years of this, I believe there has only been 1 post in a patient’s words posted on this site directly about what and how important pathology is.  Paula Takacs wrote the below story after this site underwent a facelift about 2 years ago, in her own words. I was reminded of her story and passion and her words of praise for pathologists and pathology on the heels of the mentions of Jimmy Valvano during ESPN’s recent fundraising for his foundation for cancer research and weekend mentions of what would have been Stuart Scott’s 50th birthday.

Welcome to the all new Digital Pathology Blog! Thank you for your patience as we continue to update nearly 6 years of content, images and links to this new site.

In honor of a new site, new host, improved look, feel and speed, the first post is guest authored by Mrs. Paula Takacs. 

I first met Paula about a year ago, a member of our community in Charlotte who shared her story about being diagnosed with a large abdominal/pelvic sarcoma following the birth of her child 8 years ago.  Her story was one of strength and a motivation to fight and with her business skills, founded The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research, a 501(c)3 organization to raise awareness and funds for sarcoma research.  

We at Tissuepathology.com are pleased to help support Paula, her foundation and the cause by supporting The Sarcoma Stomp, a family fun run/walk to help raise funds for much needed continuing research.

For more information on Paula, her story and the race in April, go to The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research and The Sarcoma Stomp.

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

by Paula Takacs

paulaAsk a cancer patient who his or her doctor is, and they will invariably mention their oncologist. Some will throw in their surgeon, others might give a mention to their radiation oncologist. However, one name that is often overlooked, but incredibly critical to the entire cancer journey is the pathologist. This is where the journey begins and from where the road map will be based.

It always amazes me how people are so quick to trust a doctor who they met for the first time with their life, without a second opinion. It may be the doctor’s gentle manner or the diploma on the wall. Typically with pathology, it is a nameless face on a report that goes unnoticed, as their eyes scan to the word “cancer” on the page. Yet, literally sight unseen, many will put all their trust in a single report.

I think few cancer patients realize how critical the pathologist is to their oncological team. An incorrect path report can lead a patient down the wrong road for treatment, losing precious time. Having a very rare type of tumor increases the likelihood of a misdiagnosis because some subtypes are so rarely seen. I know of two women in which differing pathology reports created the question of whether the diagnosis was sarcoma or endometrial cancer, which impacted which specialist to see. Ironically, after significant deliberation, the final diagnosis for both was determined to be endometrial stromal sarcoma.

There are over 50 different types of sarcoma, which represent 1% of adult and 15% of adult cancer. To further complicate matters, even within my subtype of liposarcoma, there numerous types including well-differentiated, myxoid and/or round cell, and pleomorphic, all of which can have very different outcomes and respond differently to treatment. This is why the pathologist is so critical to the process. It is no wonder that each time I have gone to a major cancer center, they insist on having their own pathologists determine the diagnosis.

When we learned the results from my initial biopsy eight years ago, well-differentiated liposarcoma with spindle cells, my husband and I decided to search out who in our region was an expert in sarcoma pathology. We chose Sharon Weiss at Emory to get a second look. It was a relatively simple process, and one that resulted in a more informed decision by our team. She confirmed the diagnosis, but added that based upon the level of necrotic tissue that she believed that there was a higher grade element as well. She proved to be right. We followed that protocol and included chemotherapy in the plan.

So as a cancer patient of eight years, I thank the pathologists who have led my oncologists in the right direction throughout my own journey. I am grateful for those extra steps that they take to determine the exact nature of the cancer beast, and just wish everyone could give them the credit they deserve.

ex pharma sales rep gwenolsen.com explains the corruption in the medical industry, she says it's often like a system that wants to sell ever more pills :).  Same thing with vaccines, in 1940 the schedule had 10 times less vaccines and infectious disease was about the same?  More vaccines = higher profits for Big Pharma, not more health?  :)   More vaccines = more crippled people by side effects, more lifelong customers of millions of pills for hundreds of freshly invented "disorders" giving excuse to medicate every gullible person (who thinks all doctors and Big Pharma is made of 100% saints)?  :)  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_RJ9QPG70U explains the fraud behind the 3 billion dollar fine GSK got recently; the clip explains how Big Pharma pushes medicines on doctors via bribes disguised tickets-speaking gigs, how drugs made for one condition can be prescribed by doctors for other illnesses, without any clinical study proving it works for that illness.  Can you trust 100% a system where the FDA sometimes allows doctors to prescribe medicines without clinical studies showing it works for a given disease?  A third of deaths are due to medical mistakeshttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/allen-frances/why-are-medical-mistakes-_b_5888408.html.  

The video explains how ►►doctors can money launder millions of dollars in bribes thru speaking engagements for "medical education"◄◄.  Some people become doctors just to get rich.  

Most research studies arrive at false conclusions in the medical field ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/Z5zDfhHNDQ3, because there are SO MANY variables.  Medicine is not like physics or inorganic chemistry where variables are very limited.  In biochemistry we got 1 million trillion chemical reactions each second in a human being and trying to determine if eating this or that is good is harder.  In chemistry you got 2-3 chemicals mixed and fixed conditions of temperature and etc and you get reproducibility easily.  

Aluminum in foods, vitamins, medicines ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/2fNArZsPpYA

That's why one should not think a doctor is the All Knowing God.  Most people say a few lies a week (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/the-filter/11231817/The-science-of-why-we-lie.html), only a naive person imagines our medical science is right;  discovery channel explained how people got poisons recommended by doctors 150 years ago, since back then poisons were medicines;  same thing today, lots of poisons are thought of as medicines.

Many unwanted side effects exist and it takes ethics to mitigate them or to ban the products that cause them.

100 calories of steak = 8.8 grams of protein, 100 calories of spinach = 12.4 grams of protein, 100 calories of broccoli = 11.1 g of protein :)

Being vegan is good for you and the planet (less resources), you can even get B12 from vegan sources, but it's harder, so to be safe you can just take a multi vitamin pill every 1-3 days or so - so a few dollars per year.  Make sure the vitamin brand you choose (like the "One a Day" brand from Bayer for example) has no Aluminum lake colors or any kind of artificial colors known to have bad side effects.  This lack of Yellow 3, Blue 4 and other Poisons makes the vitamin pill look unaesthetic with a boring color, but it's much healthier.  

Vegetarians were shown to live several years longer than non-vegetarians.  Mahatma Gandhi was vegetarian, just like 500 million people in India today and Albert Einstein, Leonardo DaVinci, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Pythagoras.  World Peace comes easier with no meat eating. Did you know India is the most vegetarian country in the world?  :)  RED MEAT CAUSES CANCERhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/11316316/Red-meat-triggers-toxic-immune-reaction-which-causes-cancer-scientists-find.html

MORE INFO ON ADVANTAGES OF AVOIDING MEAT

Until we can live on energy, as Nikola Tesla was saying we will one day, practicing compassion for animals is noble - at least so they get a decent life in the farms + a painless death. When animals suffer for seconds/minutes during the sudden slaughter death, they release stress-fear hormones that make us more violent, that age and sicken us: goo.gl/yxY4h. fear hormones also prompt us into human-human conflict more often; we and animals share a lot of hormonal pathways, as neuroscience shows. Bill Clinton is vegan (goo.gl/0NjdS) and so are some CEOs (http://goo.gl/7laCI). Gandhi, Tesla, Edison, Einstein, Newton, DaVinci were vegetarian: goo.gl/IMJQJ. Here is a doctor (I talked to him) who did surgeries at 95: http://goo.gl/MQqn3, after decades of being vegan. 

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”  Einstein On a similar note he stated, “Our task must be to [widen] our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” And on the day he became a vegetarian, Einstein wrote in his diary, “So I am living without fats, without meat, without fish, but am feeling quite well this way. It always seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore.”

Thomas Edison (1847-1931), the greatest inventor in history and also a vegetarian wrote “[Vegetarianism has a] powerful influence upon the mind and its action, as well as upon the health and vigor of the body. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”

Sir Isacc Newton, “the father of physics,” and Leonardo Da Vinci, a part-time physicist who made major discoveries in hydraulics, optics and mechanics were both vegetarians. In fact, Da Vinci was so fervent about vegetarianism that he would buy caged chickens and set them free. In addition, Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920), considered the greatest mathematician of the last 1000 years, was also vegetarian.

Regarding the physical and moral benefits of vegetarianism, Tesla wrote:  "On general principles the raising of cattle as a means of providing food is objectionable. It is certainly preferable to raise vegetables, and I think, therefore, that vegetarianism is a commendable departure from the established barbarian habit. That we can subsist on plant food and perform our work even to advantage is not a theory but a well-demonstrated fact. Many races living almost exclusively on vegetables are of superior physique and strength. There is no doubt that some plant food, such as oatmeal, is more economical than meat, and superior to it in regard to both mechanical and mental performance. Such food, moreover, taxes our digestive organs decidedly less, and in making us more contented and sociable, produces an amount of good difficult to estimate. In view of these facts every effort should be made to stop the wanton, cruel slaughter of animals, which must be destructive to our morals."

Here are arguments that convinced me/others to be vegetarian and later vegan.  Studies show vegetarians live several years longer.

MORE INFO ABOUT LIVING WITHOUT EATING IN THE FAR FUTURE

We will live on energy as Nikola Tesla predicted, without eating.  From nitrogen in air and/or dust and/or water we will make all food we need to build material body  and live without eating eventually.  Food or water, food or dust, food or air are the same quarks rearranged, same protons, neutrons rearranged.  We'll get nutrients provided directly to cells, and waste chemicals recycled by nanobots so we don't eat.  We can add some coherent biophotons and other things that keep us young and we mimic natural fruits and veggies totally. In due time we will understand more about foods and what they have that keep us young.  A cell is like a small chemical factory with 100, 000 chemical reactions each second.   We will discover how trillions of cells work together and what biophotons, etc in foods facilitate that communication :)

The first transition era step will be creating foods that come from individual nutrients.  So we will jump from vegetarian-carnivore to eating mixes of individual compounds no longer needing to kill animals or plants.

With the chemistry advances it will be possible to get chemical nutrition in a simple shake that has all things you need, just drink it 2 times a day. We won't grow plants for food eventually, but make all individual compounds we need, essential nutrients, mix them and create flavored mixes, drinks, cakes, etc that are the "food".  

We will make individual compound synthesis so cheap for aminoacids, etc that it will be easier to eat aminoacids only no proteins anymore.  That way, we spend less energy breaking proteins into aminoacids in our digestive system.

It is really wasteful to spend hours a day shopping, cooking, thinking about food when you can just order a powder thrice a year and mix it with water and drink it.  This will give birth to a smart intellectual kind non-violent society, provided we focus on peace and compassion. :) 

Agriculture will become obsolete.   We will have shimmering gardens with flowers and levitating craft, not farms where we torture plants and animals.  Shimmering buildings, etc   Technology can eliminate brutality against animals :) and plants and the slavery of working endlessly to raise some plants and animals... Science can make us evolved refined Immortals who live without eating and the torture it implies with the bathroom, digestion, digestive system diseases, etc..

diet soda has a warning about phenylalanine. Is phenylalanine bad for your health?

Answers from Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.

Phenylalanine isn't a health concern for most people. However, for people who have the genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU) or certain other health conditions, phenylalanine can be a serious health concern.

Phenylalanine can cause mental retardation, brain damage, seizures and other problems in people with PKU. Phenylalanine occurs naturally in many protein-rich foods, such as milk, eggs and meat. Phenylalanine also is sold as a dietary supplement.

The artificial sweetener aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet), which is added to many medications, diet foods and diet sodas, contains phenylalanine. Federal regulations require that any food that contains aspartame bear this warning: "Phenylketonurics: Contains phenylalanine." This warning helps people with PKU avoid products that are a source of phenylalanine.

If you don't have PKU, you probably don't need to worry about harmful health effects of phenylalanine — with certain important exceptions. Aspartame in large doses can cause a rapid increase in the brain levels of phenylalanine. Because of this, use products with aspartame cautiously if you:

Take certain medications, such as monoamine oxidase inhibitors, neuroleptics or medications that contain levodopaHave tardive dyskinesiaHave a sleep disorderHave an anxiety disorder or other mental health condition

If you aren't sure if phenylalanine or aspartame is a concern for you, talk to your doctor.

SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_about.php
SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is a scientific area whose goal is to detect intelligent life outside Earth.
One approach, known as radio SETI, uses radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from space. Such signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology.

In 1995, David Gedye proposed doing radio SETI using a virtual supercomputer composed of large numbers of Internet-connected computers, and he organized the SETI@home project to explore this idea. SETI@home was originally launched in May 1999.

Protein sequence comparison is one of the most powerful tools in computational biology. It allows characterizing protein sequences based on the information that is preserved in evolution. Many computational methods in biology and medicine are based on protein sequence analysis, e.g. to predict the function and structure of genes and proteins. SIMAP facilitates these methods by providing pre-calculated protein similarities and protein domains

"J'AIME LES AUTRES ET N'EXISTE QUE PAR EUX" "Le verbe aimer est difficile conjuguer: son pass n'est pas simple, son présent n'est qu'indicatif, et son futur est toujours conditionnel."

Jean Cocteau, 1889-1963, écrivain français

I like people and exist because of them . . . without them I am a ghost. -
Jean Cocteau, 1889-1963.

I have not lost faith inGod. I have moments of anger and protest. Sometimes I've been closer to him for that reason. Elie Wiesel

I Love Tripoint Holistic Therapy because it has help me with several undiagnosed illness that several #Gulf War Veterans (Persian Gulf War 1990-1991) PGWV (GWS Gulf War Syndrome / GWI Gulf War Illness) have been suffering from and modern medicine has not been able to help with the pain. My Veterans Administrations Doctor Beatrice Golomb at La Jolla Hospital (and UCSD) has done research of GWI / GWS and she highly recommends treatments of natural remedies, herbs, acupuncture, vitamins CoQ10, Cod Live Oil. A co-worker recommended Geoff Thomas and I like him since he does "Pulse Reading," and works with ancient Chinese herbs which he customizes to my needs. Acupuncture and Suction Cups, massage specifically on tendons, joints, muscles and nerves has help me tremendously to be able to feel better (minimizing fatigue (#Fibro-Fog / #Concentration), #Fibromyalgia, #Energy #Levels, #Oxygen in my blood). I highly recommend Geoff at Tripoint Holistic Therapy!!!

I have been going to Tropical Star for the last 15 years on and off. Owners and Staff are friendly and the food is great. I like their Colombian dish with Tostones (Patacones -Green Platain), Yuca, Andean Potatoes, Arepa, Chorizo. I like their Bistec (steak with onions, home made (thin-slice) french fries). Empanadas, the South-American Andean Tropical Fruits Smoothies (either with milk or plain water) are sensational to those people with good taste buds and a very eccentric palate. They also sell the concentration/extraction of the fruit's pulp either frozen without sugar or in containers (with sugar) and ready to mix by adding only H2O, milk, almond unsweetened (diamond milk). I highly recommended specially if you are from any Latino American Country and are missing your mother home-cook meals.
