Oncotarget Research Pioneers Therapeutic Options for Breast and Thyroid Cancers

link to article recap:

The enigma of human cell carcinoma and potential cures are tirelessly researched. Since 2010, peer-reviewed bio-medical journal, Oncotarget covers such ongoing oncology analysis and diligently publishes categories on a multitude of topics, including breast and thyroid cancers. Since human tumors respond to targeted cancer therapies different than say, rodent models, successful treatment remains elusive, time-consuming and exponentially expensive resulting in continued disease mortality. Watch this video on Youtube.

One example of inadequate pharmaceutical results in human breast cell line MDAMB231. While carcinoma research for this area of cells identified opioid receptor antagonist-drug naloxone as successful at inhibiting estrogen positive cells, it was only those specific cells that responded. Since cancer is more than just one disease, and every human patient has a unique combination of malignant cell function, finding a drug combination to inhibit each specific tumor cell growth continues to be inadequately researched for human cancer cell combinations. Rather, we spend resources to advance traditional chemo and radio-therapies.

Know more:

While time is so often the enemy, one neoteric strategy is offering hope for drug-resistant cancers. On the cusp of a cure for both breast and more recently, recurrent thyroid cancer patients, the already FDA approved treatment for metastatic breast cancer palbociclib has Oncotarget’s full attention. Recurrent carcinoma frustrates both patient and oncologists because the original treatment stops responding effectively, allowing cancer to return. Excitement over palbociclib is to the extent that it works as a stronger “combination” with the original drug therapy vemurafenib, to induce ultimate cancerous cell death versus single drug treatment.

Protein complex cancers, especially common in thyroid cases, are more aggressive. Highly aggressive types of thyroid and breast cancer require ultimate vigilance and ongoing surveillance throughout the stages of treatment. Despite cancers that progress to an incurable state, there are still combinations yet to be found that will ultimately prolong life and enhance the quality of life for those being treated with poor prognosis.

Jason Hope: Understandably IoT

What is your favorite mobile device? It could be your phone, game system, or perhaps even a tablet. All these devices share one trait; they have been designed to make your life easier or more enjoyable. There are so many new technologies being created every single day with these motives in mind, it can be very difficult to keep up with them. Technology entrepreneur Jason Hope understands how difficult it can be on a first-hand basis. After starting his own mobile communications company, he went out into the market to discover the up-and-comers of the industry.

His e-book, “Understanding the Internet-of-Things Revolution: A Quick Guide for Thriving in the IoT Era” is a wonderful example of this. Throughout the e-book, Hope discusses the Internet-of-Things, or IoT, and the important role that it will play in the future of consumers. With the IoT set to grow to a value of over 7 trillion in coming years with over 30 billion devices, it is best for consumers to become familiar with it sooner rather than later.

The IoT is essentially the internet of things, such as mobile devices, that are connected and communicate with each other over the internet. They provide a portal, so to speak, for their users and allow easy access to information. This technology can aid in better technologies that offer a more personalized experience and faster encounters so that the users have more time for other things. Another big thing that the IoT offers is automation. Automation will be important for businesses and increase productivity meaning it can change a lot throughout multiple industries. It seems like the future will be loaded with IoT enabled devices.

Jason Hope has spent a lot of his time climbing the ranks of the business world. Throughout that time, he has gained a plethora of valuable knowledge. He has gathered that knowledge together to create a very meaningful and lasting impression of the technology world that readers can apply to their lives immediately. Readers will not only strengthen their knowledge, but they will go into the IoT era with a confidence they will not see with any of their friends. Interested consumers can purchase his e-book today at and learn why the future is understandably IoT.

What Altruism Does to You, with Jorge Moll

In Brazil, the field of neuroscience is steadily climbing itself on top of researches, studies, tests, and brain scans, and scientific research is getting closer and closer to answers that humankind has been asking since a long time ago.

Neuroscience is actually quite a strong field in the moderately-developed country that is Brazil, but even the statement that Brazil is not a developed country is entirely wrong. Because of the vast territory that it has, not every region is as advanced as the capital and the metropolitan centers of the nation. São Paulo, for example, is a state full of well-developed and financially active cities, including its capital, São Paulo city. Learn more about Jorge Moll at Google Scholar.

Rio de Janeiro is another region that has strong presence in the neuroscience field, and the most significant scientific researches often take place in the Universities of the country, including the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, acronym UFRJ.

Jorge Moll is one of the best researchers and scientists that represent Brazil, having graduated from UFRJ and currently studying and scanning brains to figure out new interactions in the human body that science was not aware of yet. Read more about Jorge Moll at

One of the most famous studies that Jorge Moll has conducted has to do with generosity and altruism, two ways of thinking that were often thought to be simple ethical and moral choices. That was without considering the effects that altruism has on the human’s well-being, the body’s health and what good “doing good” does for our brains.

Jorge Moll found amazing discoveries by having their patients do some good for others, like give a little bit of their time and attention to someone else, even though they are in a hurry; helping someone with a task, even though that person was completely fine with doing it alone; even donating a few coins to a homeless would trigger something in the brain.

As it turns out, the experienced scientist Jorge Moll discovered that acts of generosity do trigger a primitive part of the brain and releases chemical components that make us feel very good and improves our well-being.


Jorge Moll was amazingly pleased to see that our brains are hard-wired to want to help others.

Highland Capital Management – Giving to the Community

Highland Capital Management, led by founder James Donero, has managed to grow the company’s philanthropist budget to a staggering $3 million dollars! With this accomplishment, Mary Jalonick, President & CEO of The Dallas Foundation, and her team, were all hired to help manage the budget and ensure that the $3 million was used effectively to build and support North Dallas, Texas. Some really great contributions were taken into consideration, both through monetary and non-monetary means. Read this article at Dallas News.

James chose the Dallas Foundation because, over the years, they have exhibited a strong community tie to North Texas and have achieve so much non-profit success in the community.

Together,both James and Mary, built the Highland Dallas Foundation, Inc to best help realize James’s philanthropist vision.

James has always been a huge contributor to veterans, education and healthcare in the Dallas community. With this information in mine, Mary brilliantly incorporated such foundation to successfully build a philanthropist approach, leading to the Dallas Zoo, The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum and The Parot Museum of Nature and Science contributions.

In addition to partnering with Mary, James hires Linda Owens, the former president and CEO of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation, as a charitable giving manager.

Through her efforts, Linda was able to set up a $1 million challenge grant towards The Family Place’s campaign to build a new shelter. With this accomplishment, Linda helped to further the cause by conveniently holding a Mother’s day event at the Dallas Zoom for the The Family’s Place’s emergency shelter residents, which allowed James the opportunity to give beyond monetary means.

James made the right choice by partnering with The Dallas Foundation to build The Highland Dallas Foundation. Through their partnership, Highland Capital was able to make a huge impact on Northern Dallas and help improve the community to great measures and put many more smiles on the residents of North Dallas’ faces.
