    Biomarkers in Cancer Therapy

    in Health

    Ben Weintraub Ph.D. hosts this discussion with Dr. Antonio Jimeno. Dr. Jimeno is an assistant professor of Oncology and the Director of Developmental Therapeutics and Pharmacodynamic Laboratory at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. One of the biggest unknowns in oncology is how quickly we will be able to make better choices about the use of targeted cancer agents using predictive biomarkers. Therefore, the topic of today’s call is the state-of-the-art biomarkers in cancer therapy. You can hear the opening few minutes of this call. If you would like to join or start a discussion on this topic please join us at http://inthought.ning.com/.

    Dr. Bruce Gillis: Unique Immunology Patterns in Fibromyalgia

    in Health

    For decades, debate has raged over whether fibromyalgia (FM) is a real medical disease. Dr. Bruce Gillis talks about research at the University of Illinois at Chicago that shows what's happening with the immune system in FM.  Measurable biomarkers from this landmark study resulted in the first clinical test for fibromyalgia (Fm/a Test).  Dr. Gillis is a family practice physician whose company (EpicGenetics) is central to the fulfillment of the laboratory work necessary to unequivocally diagnose FM.  The study conclusion showed that cytokine responses to mitogenic activators or PBMC isolated from patients with FM were significantly lower than those of healthy individuals, implying that cell-mediated immunity is impaired in FM patients.  This novel cytokine assay revealed unique and valuable immunologic traits, which, when combined with clinical patterns, can offer a diagnostic methodology. 

    This scientific test offers the possibility for people who suspect they have fibromyalgia but have never been diagnosed to have a way to find out if their symptoms are actually fibromyalgia. Dr. Gillis discusses the study, how it was done, as well as a follow-up study that was presented at the 2013 American College of Rheumatology meeting.  This ground breaking research is poised to change the way fibromyalgia is viewed by the medical community and help to bring closure to skepticism experienced by people with fibromyalgia.

    The Frequencies of Aura, Color, Music and Medicine

    in Health

    You’ve seen it on TV. The scientist puts a drop of some mysterious substance in a machine that swirls and twirls and out the other end comes a frequency graph that magically identifies the substance as some snake venom, blood type or biochemical component.

    But where is your energy body?  Can you drink a frequency?  Can frequency make you sick, make you fat, cause you to feel high or depressed?

    Einstein proclaimed that there are no solids.  We exist in a universe completely made of energy (as measured as frequency). Our body is energy, our thoughts, our spirit can all be measured BioAcoustically as frequency/energy.

    Join us to learn how from birth to death we use frequency to express our need and emotions. Imagine a future in which our individual frequency is our only identification; where the use of frequency based biomarkers contained within our voice can be used to keep us healthy and emotionally balanced.

    Frequency is the basis of our universe.  Frequency is all there is.

    Clinical Trials in Prostate Cancer with Dr. Ian Thompson, UTHSC

    in Health

     Dr. Ian Thompson is Professor, Glenda and Gary Woods Distinguished Chair in GU Oncology at The University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. Dr. Ian Thompson received his undergraduate degree from West Point and his M.D. degree from Tulane University. After a Residency in Urology in San Antonio, he completed a fellowship in Urologic Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Thompson has published over 400 scientific papers, several dozen book chapters, and has edited five textbooks in medicine and surgery. He currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Early Detection Research Network of the National Cancer Institute and is Chair of the Genitourinary Committee of the Southwest Oncology Group, the largest clinical trials organization supported by the National Cancer Institute. Dr. Thompson is the Principal Investigator of the San Antonio Center for Biomarkers Of Risk of Prostate Cancer. This cohort study, with up to 8 years of followup, currently follows over 3,600 men for development of prostate cancer and has been the source of many recent important developments in the early detection of prostate cancer.

    Our prostate cancer panels are conducted in association with Prostate Cancer International and Prostate Cancer Foundation.

    Active Surveillance in Prostate Cancer with Dr. Laurence Klotz

    in Health

    We were honored to feature Dr. Laurence Klotz, an acknowledged authority on active surveillance for the management of low-risk prostate cancer. Dr. Klotz is Professor in the Department of Surgery, University of Toronto Division of Urology, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada. 

    Dr. Klotz and panelists discussed evidence supporting value of active surveillance as a management strategy for men who are diagnosed with low- or very low-risk forms of prostate cancer. Dr. Klotz spoke particularly about factors that are key to the high-quality implementation of active surveillance, including accumulating evidence that true Gleason 6 disease is not associated with any significant risk for metastasis, importance of early identification of patients who do, in fact, have real risk for disease progression over time, are therefore not good candidates for active surveillance, and managing these patients, evolving strategies to minimize need for overly frequent (i.e., annual) biopsies, including potential role of multiparametric MRIs and new biomarkers, as also whether active surveillance is appropriate for a subset of men with Gleason 3 + 4 = 7 disease who have a very small volume Gleason pattern 4 disease.

    On the panel were Mike Scott, Thomas N. Krik, Tony Crispino and Walter Green Jr.

    Help 4 HD with Dr. Diana Rosas - CREST-E III

    in Science

    Our incredible special guest tonight is Dr. Diana Rosas, MD, Director, Center for Neuro-Imaging of Aging and Neurodegenerative Disease. Dr. Rosas and her team have focused primarily on the development of biomarkers for use in the study of neurodegenerative diseases, to better characterize progression, to better understand genotype/phenotype correlations and to apply novel neuroimaging approaches in clinical trials with the overall aim of making them more efficient.

    Dr. Rosas’ lab has begun to develop models that may explain clinically heterogeneous phenotypes and variability in disease progression. The current models for both disease prediction and prediction of disease progression are insensitive and inaccurate. Dr. Rosas is planning to expand her efforts to include multi-modal and multi-spectral imaging approaches that promise both more precise measurements and may provide novel and important information on the neural underpinnings of HD and their clinical consequences.

    Dr. Rosas is Co-Principal Investigator for the CREST-E Study. CREST-E stands for Creatine Safety, Tolerability, & Efficacy in Huntington’s disease. The Huntington Study Group (HSG), in a partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the University of Rochester, is conducting a global, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in individuals 18 years of and older with Huntington’s disease (HD). Tonight is the third and final episode in the CREST-E Series. Tune in for another amazing episode about CREST-E.

    Mental Health: Evaluation, Detection, and Treatment

    in Health

    Dr. Jay Lombard speaks with Joyce about the need for better ways to evaluate a person’s mental state and stability, and to determine what drugs or nutritional elements might be helpful for this particular individual.  Good nutrition is essential to brain health.  Individuals may have subtle deficiencies of essential minerals.  There are thousands of drugs – which one is most likely to benefit this person?
    Dr. Lombard, a board certified neurologist, has published several books on the role of nutrition and the brain and has lectured extensively on this topic.
    The chief scientific officer of Genomind, Dr. Jay Lombard, says psychiatry needs objective biomarkers for diagnosis, and that solutions are on the way thanks to genetics, proteomics and epigenics.
