The Claire & John Bertucci Center for Genitourinary Cancers is one of the largest, most experienced centers in New England for the treatment and care of patients with bladder, kidney, prostate and other genitourinary cancers.
The Genitourinary Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program aims to provide a comprehensive, personalized consultation to meet the clinical needs and expectations of each patient. Prior to each visit the team will review available records including clinic notes, detailed family history, radiographic images, and pathology reports. Many patients will meet first with a genetic counselor who will review family history and other risk factors for cancer, explain the role of genetic testing for hereditary cancer syndromes, discuss the limitations and the implications of testing, and provide an overall cancer risk assessment. Patients with cancer or those with increased risk will have the opportunity to consult with a clinician well versed in hereditary forms of genitourinary malignancies. These visits will be to discuss the clinical aspects of their disease, unique aspects of hereditary forms of cancer, and specific diagnostic and treatment aspects based on the results of genetic testing. After the visit, ...
Research on promising new therapies and data on the relative benefits of established treatments for prostate cancer were released today, in advance of the fourth annual Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, being held February 2-4, 2012, at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, Calif.. The results of five studies were highlighted in a media presscast (press briefing via live webcast):. 1) Vigorous Exercise Linked to Expression of Certain Genes in Early-Stage Prostate Cancer: A study shows that men with early-stage prostate cancer who exercise vigorously at least three hours a week have more than 180 genes that are expressed differently in the prostate than those who did not exercise as intensively. These genes include known tumor suppressor genes and DNA repair pathways, suggesting a number of potential mechanisms by which vigorous exercise may help delay cancer progression, as prior studies have shown.. 2) IMRT Better Than Conformal Radiation Therapy for Reducing Prostate Cancer ...

Genitourinary cancers are comprised of physiologically complex and challenging-to-treat tumor types. In recent years, clinical and basic science research has resulted in many major advances in understanding the pathophysiology and management strategies of these diseases. In addition to the approval by the FDA of new pharmacological agents, the newly-gleaned insights and changing treatment strategies have led to the revision of current diagnosis and treatment guidelines.
Charles Drake, MD, PhD, discusses pairing immunotherapy with chemotherapy, the efficacy of current immunotherapy agents, and the future use of immunotherapy in the treatment of genitourinary cancers.
The upcoming 5th European Multidisciplinary Meeting on Urological Cancers (EMUC) is preceded by a special day-long ESU course on genitourinary cancer. The course is chaired by Profs. Palou and Van Poppel and features faculty from urological and oncological fields.. The ESU Medical Oncology course on Genitourinary Cancer (MOGUC) will take place on 14 November in Marseille, France, the day before the EMUC starts at the same venue. The course requires a separate registration, but a discount is available for people who attend both events. The MOGUC is accredited by the European Board of Urology within EU-ACME for 6 credits.. Prof. Hein Van Poppel, Executive Member of the EAU for Education and co-chair of the MOGUC explains the importance of the course for urologists: "Urologists must realise that treatment goes beyond surgery. Much of the cancer treatment in Europe is done by medical oncologists, and urologists must be familiarised with new procedures and treatments. That way, they can better inform ...

Prostate cancer is the most common male malignancy but its progression rate is only 30%. In autopsy series, it has been shown that it may be present in a greater percentage than usually estimated, from the 4th decade. More refined detection methods are increasing the number of patients undergoing radical surgical treatment for tumors that perhaps would not progress.. Due to the difficulties in obtaining samples for high throughput molecular analysis from early tumors, genes that could be decisive for the transition from a latent phase to an aggressive one leading to progression, are still unknown. Therefore, there are no clues to select patients for a less radical treatment. If genes distinguishing these groups were identified, a better knowledge of the natural history of prostate cancer could be gained, and it could be applied to better identifying patient risk and to designing more precise therapeutic strategies. ...

SAN FRANCISCO-The length of time from nephrectomy up until the diagnosis of metastatis has been confirmed as prognostic for patients whose renal cell carcinoma was treated with targeted therapies - just as it is in patients overall - according to a retrospective analysis reported to the ASCO Genitourinary Symposium by Professor Giuseppe Procopio, who is a clinical researcher specializing in medical therapies for genitourinary cancers at the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori in Milan. In his presentation, however, he highlighted the need for randomized controlled studies to determine the effects of nephrectomy on the disease process. He explained that currently it is unclear whether surgery is causative of a good outlook or whether patients whose metastases emerged later have more benign disease than those whose disease becomes metastatic sooner..

What Recent Advances Have Been Made in MS Research? Many advances, on several fronts, have been made in the war against MS. Each advance interacts with the others, adding greater depth and meaning to each new discovery. Four areas, in particular, stand out. Over the last decade, our knowledge about how the immune system works has grown at an amazing rate. Major gains have been made in recognizing and defining the role of this system in the development of MS lesions, giving scientists the ability to devise ways to alter the immune response. Such work is expected to yield a variety of new potential therapies that may ameliorate MS without harmful side effects. New tools such as MRI have redefined the natural history of MS and are proving invaluable in monitoring disease activity. Scientists are now able to visualize and follow the development of MS lesions in the brain and spinal cord using MRI; this ability is a tremendous aid in the assessment of new therapies and can speed the process of ...

Godfrey et al27 describe the key elements of the year long CF Foundation sponsored Learning and Leadership Collaboratives, an important mechanism for engaging CF care centres in quality improvement. We realised that reaching over 110 accredited care centres (comprised of over 250 distinct paediatric, adult and affiliate programmes) would take considerable time and resources. We initially focused on recruiting clinical leaders in the community and searched for early success stories that could be shared peer to peer. The development of coaches to support the teams participating in the collaboratives allowed us to reach more care centres faster. By furthering the knowledge and experience of the coaches, we garnered strong advocates for quality improvement and enhanced the sustainability of improvement at their centres.. Benchmarking visits to high performing centres demonstrated the importance of factors other than the technical delivery of care. Optimal outcomes at CF care centres were associated ...

The survival of organisms ranging from simple bacteria to complex metazoans relies on the ability of individual cells to sample the environment and respond appropriately. Understanding the molecular pathways involved in these responses is of fundamental importance for many areas of biomedical science including cancer biology and microbial pathogenesis, both of which are major research foci of our lab. A short description of our work in each of these areas is presented below. One of the major research areas in our lab focuses on determining molecular mechanisms by which breast cancer cells become resistant to the growth-inhibitory effects of a class of compounds called antiestrogens (competitive inhibitors of the estrogen receptor). This is a significant problem in breast cancer treatment, since approximately 50% of breast tumors never respond to antiestrogen therapy, and the majority of tumors that initially respond acquire resistance to these drugs over time. We have been investigating the ...

IBCPs research is focused on deciphering the three-dimensional organisation and properties of proteins to understand their biological function. An essential role of the cluster running at IBCP is to provide a powerful, integrated and easy-to-use Web resource that is accessible to a world wide community of scientists to further their research.. Ensuring the performance and availability of the cluster is integral to the success of the group and its research. The cluster processes an average of 4000 bioinformatics requests from around the world per day and downtime can create a backload of jobs that can reach into the thousands in only a few hours. The cluster is accessed 24x7 by internal and external researchers, which includes requests from various parts of the world with 25 percent coming from France, 33 percent from elsewhere in Europe, 33 percent from North America and the remainder from other geographic areas.. "Ensuring that the cluster is available and working properly is imperative to ...
As indicated in our initial project proposal for IGCP 499, a worldwide network of research groups is essential because the main objectives include a wide range of scientific aspects. To achive the goals of our project a comprehensive network between various specialists, such as palaeontologists, sedimentologists, geochemists and others has been established and the integration of regional working groups has been realized (see below). With respect to the main goals of the project the amount of publications in high ranking journals in 2005 (see report for 2005) and even in 2006 is impressive (see chapter 3.6) and underline both, the multidisziplinary cooperation and the high ammount of publications dedicated to the main objectives of the project listed above. For example, new results on Devonian isotope records with respect to stratigraphy, sea-level change and climate change have been published. Furthermore, a special volume of Bulletin of Geosciences is in progress comprising the main results ...

A group of MPs has called on the government to ensure 3 per cent of GDP is invested in research and development by 2020 or risk the UK falling behind
Llewellyn et al: "This paper [Smith et al. (2014)] was published in Fall 2014 at approximately the same time we submitted our paper for peer reviewed publication and we were unfortunately unaware of it; otherwise, we would have cited it in our article. Some have made the point that the water well where we identified 2‐BE was a replacement well provided to the homeowners by the gas company. This well was emplaced in an effort to provide the household with potable water immediately following the initial impacts. The well was installed by a local water well driller hired by the gas company. The driller grouted the casing in place with cement using good practice. Given the findings of Smith et al. (2014), we acknowledge that it is possible - but highly unlikely ‐‐ that the foam in this replacement well and the 2‐BE may have originated from this source. For example, in contrast to the small amount of cement used in the replacement well, approximately 42,500 gallons of cement was used to ...
My major research interest has been to identify the pathophysiology of clinical features of severe psychiatric illness. I have focused most of my career on linking the water imbalance that is found in about 25% of schizophrenic patients to structural and functional deficits in the central nervous system. Our current efforts are focused on establishing whether neuroendocrine deficits, particularly oxytocin, are responsible for increased vulnerability to psychological stress and impaired emotion ...[Read full text]My major research interest has been to identify the pathophysiology of clinical features of severe psychiatric illness.

Had a follow-up cystoscopy (bladder scope) today. Should have been routine, doctor found one small and one very small polyp. "If its cancer it would be really low grade" was his response. He explained that this wasnt as surprise to him, given my type of cancer (urinary cancer). The choice was to have a ten minutes surgery on a later date, or for him to laser the polyps today. I trust his judgement and he decided to do the procedure right then. It was gross and icky and uncomfortable and pretty intense. Apparently I did really well. When Shawn and I got back to the van I told him what happened and the tears flowed. I couldnt stop crying. I wasnt expecting news or bad news when I went today. I had to wait 1 1/2 hours for my turn because a little 91yrs old man was super late for his appointment before me. Tension. God sent me an angel: the man waiting with me for his appointment shared stories of his new grandbaby, his trip to South America, he gave me a smile and told me itd be alright. God ...

Research on auctions that involve more than one identical item for sale was,almost non-existing in the 90s, but has since then been getting increasing attention. External incentives for this research have come from the US spectrum, sales, the European 3G mobile-phone auctions, and Internet auctions. The policy relevance and the huge amount of money involved in many of them have helped the theory and experimental research advance. But in auctions where values are equal across bidders, common value auctions, that is, when the value depends on some outside parameter, equal to all bidders, the research is still embryonic.. This thesis contributes to the topic with three studies. The first uses a Bayesian game to model a simple multi-unit common value auction, the task being to compare equilibrium strategies and the sellers revenue from three auction formats; the discriminatory, the uniform and the Vickrey auction. The second study conducts an economic laboratory experiment on basis of the first ...
Community structure is one of the most relevant features encountered in numerous real-world applications of networked systems.
