Researchers keep on developing new drugs to fight cancer, and while some are indeed effective, others never fulfill their promise. A new study now explains why many cancer drugs may not work in the way their developers think they do. But within the problem also lies the solution.
A new study finds that many new cancer drugs may not work as intended.
Cancer affects millions of people around the world, and in some cases, it does not respond to the forms of therapy that doctors usually prescribe.
For this reason, researchers keep on looking for ever more effective drugs that can stop cancer in its tracks. Sometimes, these new therapeutics live up to their developers’ expectations, while at other times they fall short.
As the search for improved anticancer drugs continues, a new study has discovered that many of the new medications that do work often target different mechanisms than those the scientists intended them for.
This may also explain why many new drugs fail to work.
A new blood test that looks for circulating tumor cells could significantly improve the diagnosis of prostate cancer and avoid unnecessary biopsies and treatments.
A new blood test could help many people at risk of prostate cancer avoid unnecessary biopsies.
Combining the new test with prostate specific antigen (PSA) results can yield a diagnosis of aggressive prostate cancer that is more than 90% accurate, according to a Journal of Urology study.
This level of accuracy is higher than that of any other biomarker for prostate cancer, says senior and corresponding study author Dr. Yong-Jie Lu, a professor of molecular oncology at the Barts Cancer Institute of Queen Mary University of London in the United Kingdom.
“This could lead to a paradigm shift in the way we diagnose prostate cancer,” he adds.
Circulating tumor cells are cancer cells that have left the original tumor and entered the bloodstream. Once cancer cells are in the bloodstream, they can spread to other parts of the

Oh my! You have just learned that your job has been eliminated or you’ve been demoted from your current role. What do you do? First of all, try not to panic.
Downsizing does happen… but not to me, you say? This is probably no comfort, but downsizing is not uncommon, and it can happen to anyone. So, take some deep breaths and move past the denial stage. Try to relax and put together an action plan. Just like anything else in life, you need to start taking steps to better your situation and get what you want.
First, let’s review some “housekeeping” issues.
Collect Your Final Paycheck
Make sure that you know when you will receive your last paycheck, and how it will be delivered to you. Some states require employers pay it immediately; others may allow a short time lag. Make sure you get everything that is due to you. Entitlements could include monies for overtime, back pay, accrued vacation, or sick leave. Talk to the appropriate person in your HR department to learn what yo
Medical Lake burger lovers prepare your palates – good things may be coming your way.
Debi Long and her husband Joe, of Ruby’s on Silver Lake, are working feverishly to open a new classic 50s-style, family hamburger restaurant at 711 East Lake St. they will be calling Jake’s.
“I’m just trying to help get this stuff going for her,” Joe said in the middle of working on an exhaust hood in the kitchen during a recent phone interview
The Long’s have been remodeling the restaurant’s interior from scratch, according to building owner Miranda Spilker.
“It was a completely empty building when I bought it,” Spilker said of the property she purchased about a year ago and is now leasing to the Longs.
According to local lore, the building has in the past housed the Donut Depot, the Emporium – called either a junk shop or antique store, depending on the person describing it – and a former local gas station and convenience store called Snode’s, where some locals recall buying penny candy as kids
How Building Trust Creates Confidence In Genomic and Diagnostic Recruiting
“I trust you.”
For many of us, these words are something abstract — a rather fluffy, sometimes fuzzy thing. Yet, trust is not some soft, ethereal or elusive quality you either have or do not. Rather, trust is a pragmatic, tangible, actionable asset that must be developed, and you can create it much faster than you might believe possible. This is important, as transcendent values, like trust and integrity, literally translate into profits and prosperity in whatever way you count real value.
In the end, we only work with those we know, like and TRUST. When you trust others, you feel assured in their abilities to do something or to remain true to and steadfast in a partnership. When you trust a brand or a product, you see it as reliable and dependable.
Simply put, trust is confidence. It is the ability to depend on the integrity, strength and skill of another to perform as promised and keep us informed o
September 11th is now known as “Patriot Day” in the United States, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance for the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Across the country, numerous events will solemnly honor the devastating loss of thousands of lives and the destruction designed to rip the very fabric of this great nation. We join in remembering those lost, celebrating those who bravely responded where terror struck, lifting up those who still suffer today as a result of the attacks, and honoring those who serve around the globe, fighting to protect freedom.
Eighteen years ago, 19 militants tied to the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda killed more than 3,000 people (including more than 400 police officers and firefighters) and wounded more than 10,000 others during three coordinated attacks on 9/11, masterminded by Osama bin Laden. It was the deadliest attack on the US in history and the most devastating foreign act of war on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor.

What do you use to measure success, improve process and keep score when recruiting great people to your team?
While there has been little consensus to date around standard definitions, frameworks, roles, processes, and fair measurements of the sourcing function, the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP) released its first measurement standards in the fall of 2018. Their set of four metrics for Sourcing was developed through in depth research to establish a standard for measuring sourcing functions and individual sourcing professionals across the Talent Acquisition field.
The four metrics they selected are:
Submittal to Business Acceptance
Time to Submit
Sourcing Satisfaction Score
