New Cancer Drug Is So Effective Against
Tumors, the FDA Approved It Immediately:

"A small but significant new study is blowing experts away after it found that a particular
cancer drug overwhelmingly helped shrink or eradicate tumors in patients whose cancer
had resisted every other form of treatment.

The study, which was published in the journal Science, followed 86 patients who had
advanced cancer of the pancreas, prostate, uterus, or bone. The patients were given
pembrolizumab, which also goes by the brand name Keytruda, and the results were very
promising. Sixty-six patients had tumors that shrank significantly and stabilized; among
them were 18 patients whose tumors disappeared and haven’t returned."

I wouldn't be surprised if the odds/% are higher for us US's peeps.

New diabetes treatment teaches rogue immune
cells to behave:

"A treatment targeting wayward immune cells in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes
may help even years later, a new study finds.

For the treatment, researchers take blood from a person with diabetes and separate out
the immune system cells (lymphocytes). They briefly expose those cells to stem cells
from umbilical cord blood from an unrelated infant. Then they return the lymphocytes to
the patient's body.

The researchers have dubbed this treatment "stem cell educator therapy," because when
exposed to the stem cells, the errant lymphocytes seem to re-learn how they should

A DIY Pharmaceutical Revolution Is
Coming—If It Doesn’t Kill Us First:

"Laufer has a doctorate in mathematics, not medicine. By day, he’s a math professor at
Menlo College, a small private college in the heart of Silicon Valley. He’s also a
pharmahacker, the most visible and outspoken member of a small community of hobbyist
chemists who believe that pharmaceuticals, like some software, should be open-source
and accessible to all. In 2015, he founded the Four Thieves Vinegar collective, a loose
consortium of hackers and scientists aiming to kickstart a DIY revolution for legal drugs.

“People should be able to take control of their own health choices,” he said."

Research holds Promise for Future Clinical
Therapies to Slow Aging:

"Researchers at Houston Methodist made a surprising discovery leading to the
development of technology with the ability to rejuvenate human cells. And that couldn’t be
more important for the small population of children who are aging too quickly – children
with progeria.

Cooke studied cells from children with progeria, a rare condition marked by rapid aging
that usually robs them of the chance to live beyond their early teens. They focused on
progeria, because the condition tells them a lot about aging in general that’s ultimately
relevant to all of us."

First implants of stem-cell pouches to ‘cure’ type 1 diabetes:

"Last week, two people with type 1 diabetes became the first to receive implants
containing cells generated from embryonic stem cells to treat their condition. The hope is
that when blood sugar levels rise, the implants will release insulin to restore them to

Repairing Organs With the Touch of a Nanochip:

"Researchers at Ohio State University developed a way to change cells inside the body
from one type to another—with just one touch from a nanochip. This new technology,
called “tissue nanotransfection,” could be used to repair and regenerate body tissues,
including organs, in a way that is non-invasive and painless."
