New complimentary webinar from Science

This webinar is the third in a series focusing on the cancer pathways that support tumor development, the emerging research in identifying and targeting these pathways, and innovations in the development of increasingly effective cancer therapy options. Recent advances in our understanding of cancer have revealed that the disease cannot be understood through simple analysis of genetic mutations within the cancerous cells. Instead, tumors should be considered as complex tissues in which the cancer cells communicate directly and indirectly with the surrounding cellular microenvironment and evolve traits that promote their own survival. In this webinar we will explore how cancer cells are able to reprogram their metabolic pathways to enable energy production under conditions that are disabling to most normal cells. Of particular interest are how tumor-specific metabolic changes promote oncogenic progression and how these changes can be exploited to develop more effective treatment options.

Nevii pigmentari sau aluniţele

In mare parte aparitia alunitelor este programata genetic. Singurul factor asupra caruia putem interveni ar fi cantitatea de UV, care ajunge la nivelul pielii. Acest lucru nu inseamna ca nu trebuie sa mai stam la soare, ci doar sa respectem anumite reguli: nu va expuneti la soare intre orele 10.30- 17.00 folositi pe parcursul verii…

O DESCOPERIRE REVOLUTIONARA a medicilor romani de la Fundeni a ajuns in prestigioasa revista „Nature”

O echipă de medici de la Institutul Fundeni, în colaborare cu cercetători de la Universitatea din Singapore au făcut o descoperire care va revoluţiona metodele de diagnostic şi tratamentul cancerului la ficat. Reuşita lor se regăseşte în numărul de noiembrie al prestigioasei reviste „Nature Genetics”. Irinel Popescu, preşedintele Academiei de Ştiinţe Medicale, a anunţat astăzi…

Chromosomal translocations leading to activation of proto-oncogenes

In some cancerous cells; chromosomal translocations have been  discovered, where an oncogene of one chromosome is brought into the proximity  of an Ig locus on another chromosome (e.g. plasmacytomas in the mouse  and Burkitt lymphomas in man). Such translocations lead to activation of a  proto-oncogene like c-myc (Fig. 45.5), which is located on chromosome 8 …
