Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal and debilitating disease diagnosis, with an average life expectancy of two to five years.

Lou Gehrig's Disease: Promising New Drug Therapy Extends Lifespan By Nearly 2 Years

But an international team of researchers has figured out a treatment that extends lifespan by nearly two years — the longest and most successful drug therapy to date. Their study, published in the journal Neurology, gives hope to the 20,000 Americans reportedly living with ALS today. "We are shocked at how well this treatment can stop the progression of ALS," said the study's lead author Joseph Beckman, a professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the College of Science at Oregon State University, in a press release.

Beckman and his team of researchers respectively from Oregon State University, University of Melbourne, University of Texas Southwestern, University of Central Florida, and the Pasteur Institute of Montevideo worked to extend lifespan longer than any other treatment currently available on the market. MR imaging of ovarian masses: classification and differential diagnosis. The optimal assessment of an adnexal mass requires a multidisciplinary approach, based on physical examination, laboratory tests and imaging techniques.

MR imaging of ovarian masses: classification and differential diagnosis

An important issue to consider in the management of ovarian masses is that they are very common, but most of them are benign and only a small part is borderline or malignant. Preoperative biopsy should not be performed in ovarian masses, particularly if the mass appears to be surgically resectable at the moment, as this invasive procedure raises the risk of spreading cancer cells and potentially leads to iatrogenic upstaging worsening the prognosis. Diagnostic imaging Diagnostic imaging plays a crucial role in detection, characterization and staging of adnexal masses. Ultrasound (US) is often the first imaging study performed in the evaluation of a suspected ovarian lesion because it’s widely available, well accepted by patients, non-invasive and of low cost.

Der aufgeklärte Patient und das Recht auf wissenschaftliche Medizin

Und leider bekommt sie auch immer wieder Unterstützung aus einer unerwarteten Richtung, der Philosophie. Diese Unterstützung reicht von scheinbar plausiblen Argumenten für mehr Patientenrechte bis zu mystischen Verklärungen. Als Geisteswissenschaftler ist mir diese Unterstützung peinlich, und als aufgeklärter, sich aber der Grenzen seines medizinischen Fachwissens bewusster Mensch und Patient halte ich sie für gefährlich.

HIV Used to Fight Cancer

A genetically modified form of the HIV virus was used by scientists at the University of Pennsylvania to re-program cancer patients' own immune systems to attack cancer cells. BLOG: Phosphorescent Felines Fight AIDS The treatment seems to have knocked out cancer in two patients and weakened it in a third. All three suffered from chronic lymphocytic leukemia, but researchers believe the technique could be adapted to take down other forms of cancer. The technique was recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine. 1. 2. The modified HIV virus carries what Carl June, one of the doctors involved, called a "Rube Goldberg-like solution," in an interview with the New York Times. The modified T-cells then carry chimeric antigen receptors, proteins which allow them to recognize and kill multiple cancer cells. 3.
