One dollar blood test  :o  ;D using gold nanoparticles outperforms PSA screen for prostate cancer, study suggests

Date: April 3, 2015

Dr. Qun "Treen" Huo of UCF's NanoScience Technology Center has developed a prostate cancer test using gold nanoparticles. Pilot studies found it to be more accurate than the standard PSA test.

A test that costs less than a $1 and yields results in minutes has been shown in newly published studies to be more sensitive and more exact than the current standard test for early-stage prostate cancer.

The simple test developed by University of Central Florida scientist Qun "Treen" Huo holds the promise of earlier detection of one of the deadliest cancers among men. It would also reduce the number of unnecessary and invasive biopsies stemming from the less precise PSA test that's now used.

"It's fantastic," said Dr. Inoel Rivera, a urologic oncologist at Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, which collaborated with Huo on the recent pilot studies. "It's a simple test. It's much better than the test we have right now, which is the PSA, and it's cost-effective."

When a cancerous tumor begins to develop, the body mobilizes to produce antibodies. Huo's test detects that immune response using gold nanoparticles about 10,000 times smaller than a freckle.

When a few drops of blood serum from a finger prick are mixed with the gold nanoparticles, certain cancer biomarkers cling to the surface of the tiny particles, increasing their size and causing them to clump together.

Among researchers, gold nanoparticles are known for their extraordinary efficiency at absorbing and scattering light. Huo and her team at UCF's NanoScience Technology Center developed a technique known as nanoparticle-enabled dynamic light scattering assay (NanoDLSay) to measure the size of the particles by analyzing the light they throw off. That size reveals whether a patient has prostate cancer and how advanced it may be.

And although it uses gold, the test is cheap. A small bottle of nanoparticles suspended in water costs about $250, and contains enough for about 2,500 tests.

"What's different and unique about our technique is it's a very simple process, and the material required for the test is less than $1," Huo said. "And because it's low-cost, we're hoping most people can have this test in their doctor's office. If we can catch this cancer in its early stages, the impact is going to be big."

After lung cancer, prostate cancer is the second-leading killer cancer among men, with more than 240,000 new diagnoses and 28,000 deaths every year. The most commonly used screening tool is the PSA, but it produces so many false-positive results -- leading to painful biopsies and extreme treatments -- that one of its discoverers recently called it "hardly more effective than a coin toss."

Pilot studies found Huo's technique is significantly more exact. The test determines with 90 to 95 percent confidence that the result is not false-positive. When it comes to false-negatives, there is 50 percent confidence -- not ideal, but still significantly higher than the PSA's 20 percent -- and Huo is working to improve that number.

The results of the pilot studies were published recently in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. Huo is also scheduled to present her findings in June at the TechConnect World Innovation Summit & Expo in suburban Washington, D.C.

Huo's team is pursuing more extensive clinical validation studies with Florida Hospital and others, including the VA Medical Center Orlando. She hopes to complete major clinical trials and see the test being used by physicians in two to three years.

Huo also is researching her technique's effectiveness as a screening tool for other tumors.

"Potentially, we could have a universal screening test for cancer," she said. "Our vision is to develop an array of blood tests for early detection and diagnosis of all major cancer types, and these blood tests are all based on the same technique and same procedure."

Huo co-founded Nano Discovery Inc., a startup company headquartered in a UCF Business Incubator, to commercialize the new diagnostic test. The company manufacturers a test device specifically for medical research and diagnostic purposes.

Why Can't Naked Mole Rats Get Cancer?   

According to a study done by the University of Rochester in 2013, naked mole rats do not get cancer because they have complex sugars that prevent cells from clumping and turning into cancerous tumors.

Naked mole rats were selected for the study because they live very long, about 30 years, and do not seem to get cancer. The study revealed that the reason cells do not clump in naked mole rats is due to a complex sugar called hyaluronan in the extracellular matrix, the space between cells.



The study set off discussions about the possibility of altering hyaluronan sugars in humans or using this specific gene from naked more rats in the fight against cancer.

More about naked mole rats:


•The naked mole rat is a type of rodent which lives in burrows in soil. It spends most of its life in darkness.

•Contrary to popular belief, naked mole rats are not blind and they are not exactly hairless; they have very thin hairs that help them with navigation.



•Naked mole rats have a social structure similar to some insects. There are worker and fighter naked mole rats, and a queen who is the only one who breeds.

Making an informed decision requires being informed. Are you?   

 In the United States, cancer kills six hundred thousand people each year. Like most wars, the 'war' on cancer is expensive, and profitable. In that one year, chemotherapy will generate almost $100,000,000,000 (one hundred billion) of income.

 Chemotherapy is effective against certain types of cancer (leukemia, lymphoma/Hodgkin's), which, taken together, make up a fraction of all-cancer mortality (<1%). For the major metastatic cancer killers however (breast, lung, colon, pancreatic), five-year survival rates have not changed significantly since the advent of its widespread use. Its side effects are associated with significant morbidity and even further carcinogenesis (aka more costs/profits). One might wonder what happened to the Hippocratic Oath.

 Chemotherapy costs $50,000-$70,000 or more per treatment regimen. Unlike any other prescription drug or treatment, doctors prescribing chemo make direct profit per sale.

 And despite what most oncologists have been taught, if you are taking radiation or chemo, or both, ...take your anti-oxidants also. You're more likely to get better, with fewer and less severe side effects.

Be informed.

Medicine That Grows On Trees  ;D

David Wolfe, a leading authority on nutrition and raw food, points out the value of a simple mushroom growing on a tree stump.

 In these mushrooms is where you will find some of the strongest medicinal compounds.

 He shows us the cloud mushroom, so common it grows in every state of the US and Canada.

 It has tremendous healing properties: immune system enhancing and anti-cancer properties, and it detoxifies the liver not only of cancer causing agents but of plastic by-products!

 If you learn to identify it, you can simply harvest this mushroom, take it home and make a healing tea.

Agelbert NOTE: Did you know that ALL cancer cells (from ALL types of cancers) have mitichondrial dysfunction? Healthy mitochondria are the ultimate cancer cell suppressors. The importance of that fact for your health goes beyond cancer prevention to metabolic disease prevention and/or therapy.

How Metabolic Therapies Prevent and Treat Chronic Diseases

Story at-a-glance

Quote
֍ Mounting evidence shows conditions such as Alzheimer’s and cancer are metabolic diseases, which means you can prevent, treat and recover from them like other metabolic conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease

֍ A number of experts and researchers are now convinced the answer to our burgeoning cancer and Alzheimer’s epidemics is a ketogenic diet and other metabolic support, such as fasting, hyperbaric oxygen treatment and dietary supplementation

֍ During fasting or ketosis, your brain switches to using ketone bodies derived from dietary fats as its primary fuel, and ketones have potent neuroprotective effects and enhance brain function

֍ Healthy cells have the metabolic flexibility to use either glucose or ketones (obtained through your diet from carbohydrates and healthy fats respectively), whereas cancer cells cannot use ketones for fuel due to having damaged mitochondria

֍ Nutritional ketosis prevents and combats cancer by optimizing mitochondrial function, decreasing blood glucose and insulin, increasing tissue oxygenation, decreasing free radical generation, downregulating oncogenes and upregulating tumor suppressor genes

The Tax Scam Passed the Senate. What Now?

December 2, 2017

Republicans have jammed the Trump Tax Scam through the Senate, by a vote of 51-49. It’s hard to imagine how this bill could be worse: not only does it give massive tax cuts to the rich and corporations, it also allows drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, exacerbates growing inequality, and adds $1 trillion to the deficit—which will force deep cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security down the road.

The Tax Scam is not yet law. Republicans have two options for how to get the Tax Scam across the finish line, and then they have to immediately attend to funding the government. Here’s what comes next.

OPTION A: “GO TO CONFERENCE”

Since the House and Senate passed different versions of the Tax Scam, one option for Republicans is to merge them together by “going to conference.” This is where members of the House and Senate are appointed to a conference committee.  The goal is to work out the differences between the bills and put them together into one “conference report” which is then voted on by both the House and Senate.

There are a number of important differences between the two bills, first and foremost the repeal of the individual mandate that was included in the Senate version but not the House. There are also differences between the individual tax rates, the estate tax, and the alternative minimum tax.

Republicans have all publicly ;)  said they want to go to conference. Going to conference would more closely resemble “regular order” and allow for some review of what is in these bills. That extends the process of passing the Tax Scam by at least two weeks or so, because they have to appoint conferees, come up with the agreement, and then vote on it in both chambers. Given the deep unpopularity of the Tax Scam, it’s likely they’ll try to avoid conference at any cost by instead choosing Option B…

OPTION B: THE HOUSE PASSES THE SENATE BILL—AS IS

To really put the pedal to the metal on finishing the Tax Scam, Republicans can instead have the House pass the version just passed by the Senate. Even though Republicans have all said they want to go to conference, it would save them a ton of time and trouble to go this route instead. If the votes are there in the House to pass the Senate bill, they will.

Look for Speaker Ryan to quietly spend the weekend twisting arms behind the scenes. There is currently a vote scheduled on Monday, December 4 to “instruct conferees” (tell the members of the Conference Committee what to do)—but this could easily be turned into a vote on the Senate bill itself if the votes are there.

TURNING TO GOVERNMENT FUNDING AND DREAM

If Republicans go with Option A, it will mean the conference report on the Tax Scam takes a back seat to next week’s main event: finding a way to fund the government by the December 8 deadline. If they go with Option B, and the bill passes the House, it will mean Congress has finished its work on the Tax Scam.

Either way, our attention now needs to be on funding the government and holding Democrats to their commitment to secure inclusion of the DREAM Act in the funding bill. Democrats have promised for three months that they will use their leverage on the December spending bill to get the DREAM Act done. Now it’s time for them to deliver.

Nothing in this tax plan benefits anyone as far down the food chain as I am. I noticed that (as usual) that doctors and lawyers are explicitly denied the corporate tax loopholes, as has been the case for decades now. Bend over, citizens.

Yep.  :(

Thank you for this info. People need to know that even a professional like you with a degree in medicine is not going to benefit in comparison with the elite crooks this Tax Scam was pushed through for.

By the way, if you have the time, check out the video and the article I just posted. There is some fascinating new info on metabolic activity. For example, you and I were taught that the brain gets energy exclusively from glucose metabolism. It turns out that is not true. Ketone metabolism has been found to inhibit all sorts of deleterious activity like siezures and ischemic conditions. It's really strange because it turns out too much oxygen (study of U.S. Navy divers) caused seizures and ALSO anoxic condition ischemia and metabolic disease conditions can both be treated with ketone therapy. It's a bit involved for the average joe but you have all the years of study to understand this. It seems like a great avenue for improved health. If you find any flaws that they don't mention (e.g. ketosis downsides for our health), please fill me in.
