This particular combination has been especially gratifying because not only does the SD-101 therapy drug induce tumour shrinkage at the actual site where it’s injected, but it’s working in conjunction with pembrolizumab to shrink tumours outside of the ones we’re directly injecting,” said Dr. Deborah Wong, assistant clinical professor of medicine at the Geffen School of Medicine
GSLs inhibited by D-PDMP are prevalent in keratinocytes and other cells that compose the epidermis. Investigators observed that mice fed a diet high in fat and cholesterol were more likely to have hair discolouration (from black to grey to white), substantial hair loss, and skin inflammation with multiple wounds.
"Working with Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minn.), we showed that these clays also diminish populations of bacterial biofilms, as well as bacteria common in wounds that are more resistant to drugs,” said study co-author Lynda Williams, PhD, in a press release. Dr. Williams is a biogeochemist at Arizona State University in Phoenix. “The results support our efforts to design new antibacterial drugs using natur...
A design of the hybrid photosensitizers has been patented by Dr, Zhang and his team. It can be formulated into a spray or gel form. Once the spray is developed, medical professionals can put it on any surface and then illuminate it with blue or red light to clean away MRSA and other bacteria that may be present.
Results showed that all tumours, some of which were more aggressive than others, had IgE present. Further analysis of a larger cohort of patients showed that less dangerous or ‘low risk’ tumours contained more IgE-carrying cells, while more serious tumours had less. This suggests that IgE may also have a protective effect against the progression of cancer.
"We discovered that people who develop six or more basal cell carcinomas during a 10-year period are about three times more likely than the general population to develop other, unrelated cancers,” said senior author Dr. Kavita Sarin."
The nationwide Walk for Camp Liberté took place on June 7, 2018. More than 300 Galderma Canada employees—along with their friends, family, and pets—took part in the effort to raise funds for the summer camp for children with moderate-to-severe dermatological conditions. Camp Liberté has locations in Eastern and Western Canada and children attend the camp free of charge. Watch the video below to see the highl...
Individuals with epidermodysplasia verruciformis are vulnerable to ß-HPVs because their own genetic irregularities nullify those of the viruses, Dr. Jean-Laurent Casanova suggested in a press release. That is, the viruses can compensate for their missing proteins because the corresponding human defense mechanism is awry.
