NY Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium This week heralds a busy one with the upcoming annual NY Chemotherapy Foundation (Greenspan) meeting that begins tomorrow at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square with the Pediatric session in the afternoon and finishes on Saturday with the Nursing session. I’ll be at the Greenspan event from Weds to Fri, please do say hello if you see me around. In the meantime, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the number of signups to the conference newsletter (see the sign up widget in the right hand margin —>). The first one, from AACR on colon cancer, goes out this on Wednesday week, please sign up before then if you would like to receive it. More newsletters will follow soon on the Greenspan Meeting, ASH and SABCS. I’ve just added a new meeting to my January conference schedule and will be attending the 6th International Society of Gastroenterological Carcinogenesis in Houston, Texas.

RT @ericgarland: Scott Adams' fantastic suggestion to end political parties in America http://bit.ly/bCbrFF Imagine a democratic political system in which no one is allowed to be a member of a political party. How would things be different? My hypothesis is that confirmation bias, or cognitive dissonance, or something of that nature, influences voters to irrationally agree with the platform of their own party no matter what the facts suggest.

Our approach is based on the ideas that tumorigenesis is a continuous process and that the gene-expression signature underlying the development of bone metastases starts to form in the early stages of prostate tumorigenesis and becomes well developed in the later stages. We have assumed that combining meta-analyses of different steps of prostate carcinogenesis and assigning greater weight to more-specific data might improve identification of genes associated with prostate tumorigenesis, especially those involved in the development of bone metastases; therefore, we have up-weighted the third level of meta-analysis. First level of the meta-analysis The tendency of prostate tumor to metastasize to bone is a hallmark of prostate tumorigenesis. Breast and lung cancer also often metastasize to bone, although not as frequently as prostate cancer does. Bone-metastasizing cancers may share a gene-expression signature that predisposes them to form bone metastases. Abstract | Prioritizing genes associated with prostate cancer development

Companies that copy biotechnology drugs, led by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., will be able to bypass a new process set up by the U.S. health overhaul to get their products approved, regulators said. The Food and Drug Administration will allow generic-drug makers to use either the new system, which requires them to give proprietary data to brand-name drugmakers at the point they seek approval, or an older system used to clear novel biologics, which keeps that information private, said spokeswoman Sandy Walsh. While the FDA wasn’t expected to take an immediate stand on the process, Walsh said the new law accommodates both. Teva, Sandoz May Bypass New Pathway for Copying Biologic Drugs
