Dr. Ezra Cohen associate director for translational science and co-leader, solid tumor therapeutics program, at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health talks about immunotherapy treatments for cancer.
#cancer #immunotherapy
With traditional chemotherapy still the go-to method of treating many cancers, physicians and researchers are trying new ways to ease side effects and make the treatment less toxic

Santiago Horgan, MD, talked to San Diego Connect about a new incisionless weight loss surgery option. The procedure consists of an adjustable saline balloon placed in the stomach, which encourages food portion control and has been shown to reduce total body weight by 10 percent. Watch the video to learn more about this new weight loss option or visit http://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/surgery/bariatric/weight-loss-surgery/Pages/balloon.aspx

Southern California’s First Real-Time MRI-Guided Gene Therapy for Brain Cancer at UC San Diego Health System: Clinical trial advances Toca 511 gene therapy with precise drug delivery

Neurosurgeons at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center are among the first in the world to utilize real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance for delivery of gene therapy as a potential treatment for brain tumors.

Fate of the Heart: Researchers Track Cellular Events Leading to Cardiac Regeneration

Studies in zebrafish reveal abundant potential source for repair of injured heart muscle

In a study published in the June 19 online edition of the journal Nature, a scientific team led by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine visually monitored the dynamic cellular events that take place when cardiac regeneration occurs in zebrafish after cardiac ventricular injury.  Their findings provide evidence that various cell lines in the heart are more plastic, or capable of transformation into new cell types, than previously thought.

Yadira and Heather discuss nanomedicine—using tiny particles to deliver diagnostics and therapeutics—and how this approach helps overcome the biggest challenge to health care today: people. They talk to Adah Almutairi, PhD, associate professor and director of the Center for Excellence in Nanomedicine in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at UC San Diego.

Why Don’t We All Get Alzheimer’s Disease? Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine offer an explanation for why we all don't get Alzheimer's disease (AD) - a trick of nature that in most people maintains critical separation between a protein and an enzyme that, when combined, trigger the progressive cell degeneration and death characteristic of AD.

Immune System Molecule Promotes Tumor Resistance to Anti-Angiogenic Therapy: A team of scientists, led by Napoleone Ferrara, MD, has shown for the first time that a signaling protein involved in inflammation also promotes tumor resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy.

The findings by Ferrara – professor of pathology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and senior deputy director for basic science at the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center – and colleagues at Genentech, a biotechnology firm based in South San Francisco, are published in the August 4 Advance Online Publication of the journal Nature Medicine.
