Sorry I have been away moving from one house to another. Anyway, recent papers and studies that caught my eye; one has to do with the use of Celastrol--a anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory, compound isolated from Tripterygium Wikfordii. Has been used to fight obesity. This is what Gusgold calls his Thunder God Vine. Well we now have a legitimate study, showing that the active chemical is Celastrol, and it does kill Pca cells in vitro. Interestingly you can find this substance on Amazon. Not one I am adding, just reporting.
Another is Sanguinarine. This Chemical can be found in the Blood Root Plant, or the Mexican Prickly Poppy--considered quite toxic. Native Americans have used the Blood Root for Centuries, for a number of ailments. FDA does not approve of the use of Blood Root--but what the heck, I do not approve of the FDA. Not one I would add either, but the same group that did the work on Celastrol, confirmed the Apoptosis, also in vitro, of Pca cells.
As to new advances---The Wistar Institute in Philly, has come up with synthetic DNA. They have been able on a laboratory basis, using mice, to manipulate their synthetic DNA, so that when added to the white mice, with Pca, these preparations were able to repair the mutations causing the cancer. Right now it would be quite expensive. But it just goes to show, and compound what is being done in the area of Immunology. They say they will have more to come.
Another one and this is exciting for those of us with the PTEN mutation--as Dana Farber, has been able to Nano Formulate Olaparib, and this is shown to amplify PARP Inhibition, and does sensitize PTEN, as well as TP53. As one with the PTEN mutation, which has shown some promise against BRCA-2---this could be a one shot PARP for those that have both BRCA-2, and PTEN---again someone like me.
All for now!
