Small-to-Sized nanoparticles deliver anticancer drug that fights lung tumors

Wills College scientists have developed a drug delivery platform that allows targeted delivery of anticancer agents to tumor cells eliminating traditional traditional chemotherapy risks and helping silent early-stage lung cancer patients. Small-to-sized nanoparticles (SNNPs) carry anticancer agents for longer periods delivering drugs to tumor cells that may operate more effectively and have fewer side effects due to side effects. The study will be published in Nature Communications on April 25 2020.

This study will drastically change how we treat early-stage lung cancers and other types of cancer by completely changing the way that SNNPs are delivered into peoples bodies said Jianyi Jay Zhang PhD a professor of Bioengineering in the Wills Biomedical Engineering Institute who led the development of the novel delivery platform.

15 personal care products with unnecessary space

A question that has asked a health care provider must be asked: Should we eliminate personal care products (PCPs) from the healthcare system? Health care providers should have an answer that ensures there isnt a trade-off between reducing waste versus increased healthy spaces. For those of us working in NHS-run hospital networks this involves transforming local approaches to prioritise patients at risk for unnecessary calls during STAMP. Its a challenge.

I think theres a bit of an underspecified view in the field that PCPs are something that can be eliminated says Dr. K. Richard Hawkins MD Medical Director of Waste Block Heritage Practice and Ethical Development Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (SHFRH). Theres just allot of stuff that we dont have to go through.

Using Point-of-Care Blood Test to Predict Skin Cancer Recurrence in Older Adults

A bleeding-molecule-testing platform that can be used before surgical procedure is to help predict recurrence of skin cancer (scars) in older adults according to a JAMA Network Open study.

In the study published in The Lancet Oncology 24 of 30 eligible 69-year-old men with stage 2 non-Hodgkin lymphomas who underwent elective skin cancer surgery were enrolled in the Canadian Prostate Cancer Registry and matched with 39 men with stage 4 who underwent resection of folliculomegaly due to nonforumptive hypogonadism (endogenous melanoma). Patients were followed-up for patient relapse at two five and nine-year followup intervals.

Low IQ linked to heightened cancer risk

People who score in the lowest fifth of clinical intelligence tests (Clinician IQ – but not Neuropsych IQ-) have higher cancer risk than the general population according to research published today in Health Affairs. This is a first step toward understanding the genes that can inform health care decisions.

These population-based studies have documented associations with low IQ showing that people who score in the lowest fifth of Clinician IQ (below 80) are an estimated 9-12 times more likely than the general population (95 CI 8-18) to be diagnosed with cancer endocrine cancer (PC) type stage or advanced stage. They are also associated with elevated prostate cancer death risk and lowest sexually transmitted infection risk.
