RNA Nanoparticles Rubbery Properties Help Them To Target Tumors – Technology Networks

A new study by researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC James) shows that RNA nanoparticles have elastic and rubbery properties that help explain why these particles target tumors so efficiently and why they possess lower toxicity in animal studies.

RNA nanoparticles show great promise for the targeted delivery of anticancer drugs. Understanding their structure and behavior is essential for their possible future use.

This study, published in the journalACS Nano, reveals that RNA nanoparticles have elastic and rubbery properties that enable the molecules to stretch and return to their normal shape. Researchers say that these properties could help the particles target tumors by enabling them to slip through the poorly formed walls of tumor blood vessels and enter a tumor mass.

The researchers further proved that the same rubbery properties enable the RNA nanoparticle to slip through the kidney to excrete into the urine a half-hour after systemic injection, thereby eliminating them from the body relatively quickly. That, in turn, could reduce retention of the anticancer agent in vital organs, lowering an agents toxicity.

We show that RNA nanoparticles have a flexibility that allows for the assembly of molecular structures that have stretchable angles, says study leader and corresponding authorPeixuan Guo, PhD, professor in the College of Pharmacy and theSylvan G. Frank Endowed Chair in Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery. Guo is also in the OSUCCC JamesTranslational Therapeutics Research Program.

These findings demonstrate the rubbery properties of RNA nanoparticles and why these molecules hold great promise for industrial and biomedical applications, especially as carriers for targeted delivery of anticancer drugs, says Guo, who directs Ohio StatesCenter for RNA Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine.

For this study, Guo and his colleagues tested the elasticity of nucleic acid polymers by stretching and relaxing individual RNA nanoparticle while subjecting RNA nanoparticles to elasticity studies using dual-beam optical tweezers built in Guo Lab. Finally, they used animal models to study the biodistribution, excretion and retention of RNA nanoparticles. This included measuring excretion of the particles in urine along with the study on the effect of their shape and size.

Key findings include:

Overall, Guo says, we believe these findings further support the development of RNA nanoparticles for targeted delivery of anticancer drugs or therapeutic RNA.

Pandemics and transhumanism – The Times of India Blog

The pandemic has forced authorities around the world to scramble for solutions within the realm of possibility. One of the more futuristic, radical solutions which is still relegated to the sidelines is transhumanism. It is a branch of philosophy that believes in transcending the limitations of the human population through technological augmentation. From hearing aids, pacemakers, bionic arms, the manifestations of transhumanism are very much present in our lives. However, the radical applications of being able to tweak biology to suit ones interests and needs at a commercial cost is yet to see the light of day. The basic tenet of transhumanism is extension of human life. Yet, eternal life comes across as a utopian thought where inadequate manufacturing of PPE kits for doctors and nurses have us jolted back to the harsh realities of current pandemic dwelling.

Since the globalized nature of modern capitalistic order and the consequent interconnectedness of our lives has made the possibility of frequent pandemics ever so plausible, we find ourselves at the juncture of a major shift towards increasing receptivity to transhumanist solutions. The famous American inventor and futurist Kurzweil wrote in his book The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology about a journey towards a meshing point of humans and machine intelligence The Singularity. He envisioned nanobots which allowed people to eat whatever they want while remaining healthy and fit, provide copious energy, ward off infections or cancer, replace organs and augment their brains. There will come a future where human bodies will carry so much augmentation that they would be able to alter their physical manifestation at will.

Even if the coronavirus fades off without wiping humans off the planet, it has given an eerie trailer of what future outbreaks might hold in store. Hence due security measures have to be pondered upon -whether in the labs, where deadly pathogens are being researched upon or in the malicious possibilities of a biowarfare. Frontline workers can be provided tech enhancements to ensure better armament against infectious, mutating viral diseases. Protective exoskeletons, real-time blood monitors for pathogens, can bid riddance to any temporary means of protection which are vulnerable against quality and efficacy issues.

In 2011, surgeons in Sweden had successfully transplanted a fully synthetic, tissue-engineered trachea into a man with late-stage tracheal cancer. The trachea was created entirely in a lab with tissue grown from the patients own stem cells inside a bioreactor designed to protect the organ and promote cell growth. Under transhumanism, artificial organs would be superior to ordinary donor organs in several ways. They can be made to order more quickly than a donor organ can often be found; would be grown from a patients own cells and hence wont require dangerous immunosuppressant drugs to prevent rejection.

As of 2018, prototypes of artificial lungs are also surfacing at the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch, where the team spent the last 15 years developing the prototype. Upon completion, the bioengineered lungs were transplanted into four pigs. There was no indication of transplant rejection when the animals were examined at regular intervals for months after transplant. The researchers also observed that the bioengineered lungs became vascularized, establishing the necessary blood vessel networks to do its job. For diseases like covid-19, which affect a particular body organ, having an option of a bioengineered organ could very well be a safeguard.

But transhumanists are not just trying to extend human lives, they also want to revive them. They aim to merge bioengineering, AI capabilities, 3-D printing to resurrect the dead victims of any catastrophe much like the pandemic on our hands right now. Ways of dealing with grief at the loss of a loved one can possibly be placated with measures like interactive custom-holograms, social media feed powered by AI that could generate new messages based on the pattern of the old ones.

There are strong ethical considerations that also pop up in the discussion of transhumanism. Stefan Lorenz Sorgner, a German philosopher and bioethicist believes that processes like cryonics will go against most ecological principles given the amount of resources needed to keep a body in suspended animation post-death. Even though, transhumanism does not explicitly encourage breeding for the superiority of one specific group, the methods endorsed by some prominent transhumanists aim for physiological superiority. Considering that for the time being, solutions emanating will be heavy on the monetary end in the healthcare set-up, it could breed inequality in access. A huge gap in resources will be experienced in the society, as the affluent section amasses money and influence to set out an eternal timeline for themselves, coming at a lethal cost for the other half of the society.

Solving problems that will plague us in the future is a rising urge shared by leaders, philanthropists and billionaires around the world. This is why proponents like Zoltan Istvan fear the fact that the exponential rise of transhumanist technologies might leave governments fumbling to discuss and bring about policy directions to regulate and guard changes. Important questions like how far is too far? will need phased guidance as we have learnt from the chaotic response to systemic changes being implemented in the medical field during Covid-19. A conversation on transhumanism should not be put off any further and needs to permeate across different strata of stakeholders.

Penny Stocks To Watch If You Like Biotech; 1 Up 287% Year To Date – Penny Stocks

Putting Together Your List Of Penny Stocks To Watch?

Do you like biotech penny stocks? Youre likely among a unique group of investors that can handle risk if you said yes. When it comes to these cheap stocks, not only does volatility play a role, so does speculation. Most small-cap biotech stocks tend to experience extremes.

This goes for extreme jumps and extreme drops. It usually involves 1 of a few things. First, when biotech stocks are on the move higher, theres usually a news catalyst to look for. It might stem from something the company just announced. For more info on different ways to trade penny stocks, download our 60+ page eBook for free.

On the flip side biotech companies pre-announce important dates. So it could have something to do with an upcoming announcement. Usually, these entail things like phase trial results, data readouts, or new patient enrollment. You may also see things like PDUFA dates, IND submission or approvals, and NDA submission or approvals. These all have to do with different FDA events. Dont worry if you dont understand what these acronyms mean, Ill explain, briefly.

The FDAs IND or Investigational New Drug program allows pharmaceutical companies permission to begin human clinical trials and ship experimental drugs across state lines before a marketing application for the drug has been approved. Essentially it is a starting point for clinical investigations in the US. The main idea of an initial IND submission is to ensure the safety and rights of clinical trial participants.

In business, you generally see and NDA as a non-disclosure agreement. However, when it comes to biotech, NDA means something completely different. This refers to a New Drug Application. The NDA application sponsors formally propose that the FDA approve a new pharmaceutical for sale and marketing in the U.S. The data gathered during the animal studies and human clinical trials of an IND become part of the NDA.

PDUFA or Prescription Drug User Free Act was passed in the 90s and authorizes the FDA to receive fees from drug manufacturers. These fees are used to fund the drug approval process. The PDUFA date is a deadline for the FDA to review a new drug application. The typical review period can be anywhere from 6-10 months depending on priority.

Ok, so now youve got a basic understanding of some of the basic FDA forms. As I said above favorable outcomes to data readouts or any of these forms can trigger momentum in the market. On the flip side, if a company isnt granted permissions or misses trial endpoints, then the other side of the coin is a move to the downside. One thing to consider during times of negative readouts is managements commentary.

It can be a big blow to any stock, including penny stocks, but how management reacts is important. Are they fully giving up on the treatment or did they find some positives that suggest that theres still something to build upon? While the road may be long, many biotech penny stocks end up recovering in the end as they rework their trials. With this in mind, here are a few biotech penny stocks to watch right now.

VYNE Therapeutics (VYNE Stock Report) might appear as a new biotech company. However, it is one that weve discussed in the past under the name Menlo Therapeutics. While Menlo had its ups and downs throughout the year, it did experience several bouts of bullishness. This month, the name and symbol changes went into effect and now weve got VYNE stock.

The companys focus remains on dermatology treatments. In light of this, CEO David Domzalski explained, Having achieved FDA approval for our two commercial products AMZEEQ and ZILXI in a period of less than eight months is a testament to the value of our proprietary technology and is aligned to the symbolic meaning behind our new name strength, growth, endurance, and resilience.

Domzalski also filed a Form 4 recently showing the purchase of 75,000 of the companys stock. The average price per share was $1.38. CFO Andrew Saik also picked up a chunk as well. He purchased 40,000 at an average of $1.462. This week, VYNE appointed a new Director to its board, Patrick LePore. Considering the recent activity, will VYNE stock be on your watch list in September?

Unity Biotechnology Inc.(UBX Stock Report) is another one of the trending biotech penny stocks to watch. If youre unfamiliar with the company theres a reason for that. For most of this year, UBX stock rarely came close to penny stock territory. That all came to an end after shares plummeted from around $12.50 to recent lows of $2.72 in August. Remember what I was saying about the outcome of meeting or missing endpoints? In this case, Unity Biotech announced that its UBX0101, osteoarthritis treatment missed its primary endpoint.

After several weeks of sideways trading, volume began picking up this week. Price has also followed. Aside from participating in a few industry conferences this month, Unity also announced new developments. The company announced the initiation of a restructuring. Unity said it is to align programs in ophthalmology and neurology.

[Read More] Should Your List Of Penny Stocks Include These 3 Names?

The company said it will advance its UBX1325 to Phase 1 clinical development in patients with diabetic macular edema. Furthermore, it expects to dose the first patient in the second half of 2020. This corporate restructuring is also said to extend the companys cash runway through mid-2022.

Lipocine Inc. (LPCN Stock Report) is another one of the biotech penny stocks weve watched for months. In fact, year-to-date, LPCN stock is up more than 280%. A lot of the lead-in to the recent price movement came in light of its TLANDO treatment. This is the companys oral testosterone replacement therapy. Lipocine originally had its Prescription Drug User Fee Act goal date ofAugust 28, 2020. However, that was pushed back by the FDA. In light of this extension, the market lost a bit of its thunder and shares have slid nearly $1 a share in the course of about a month.

Although the FDA did not provide a timeline on a new action date, the FDA informed the Company that the review is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. The FDA has not asked for any additional data and the Company has provided the FDA with all information requested to date.

It has now been more than a few weeks since then. The company also just presented at the H.C. Wainwright Investment Conference on Monday. While trading volumes and price have picked up, is this just general speculation on that coming weeks statement? Obviously, well follow this closely, but its also important to note that this could also remain a high-risk situation depending on the PDUFA outcome whenever that may be.

Coping and Hoping: Mental Health Tips for Trying Times | University of Michigan – Michigan Medicine

Even before 2020 began, many Americans of all ages had mental health conditions and alcohol or drug issues that werent getting the attention and care that they deserved.

Now, six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, three months into a major social justice movement, two months away from a national election and with school starting, hurricanes blowing, wildfires burning and the economy slumping, its a fair bet that many more people are struggling with mental health concerns.

Thats why Michigan Medicine assembled a panel of experts for a recent webinar to offer concrete steps that might help, and links to further resources for helping to manage overall well-being.

This recording has a wealth of tips, from breathing exercises to family activities to advice about the kinds of healthy lifestyle choices that can bolster mental health and keep alcohol use in check. The U-M Department of Psychiatry also offers a wide range of resources and helpful links in its COVID-19 Toolkit.

If youre feeling overly stressed, depressed, anxious or concerned about your alcohol use or someone close to you is showing such signs you dont have to start with a specialist. In fact, primary care providers such as family doctors, general internists, pediatricians and primary care nurse practitioners, are trained to handle many mental health symptoms, says Jill Schneiderhan, M.D., a U-M family medicine doctor and mental wellness specialist.

So just as you would start by contacting them for a new physical symptom, dont be afraid to contact them about changes to your mental health and substance use. That includes a persistent low mood, finding things less enjoyable, and anxious thoughts that intrude on your everyday life.

Several of the experts focused on the things you can do to improve your mental state, including more regular bed times and wake times, cutting out screen use in bed, keeping up social connections even if its via video chat or phone calls, eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, engaging in a hobby, spending time outside, and engaging with art and music.

Elizabeth Duval, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in the U-M Department of Psychiatry, offers some specific breathing exercises and mindfulness activities that anyone of any age can do, almost anywhere.

Box breathing: Breathe in for a few seconds, hold for a few seconds, breathe out for a few seconds, and hold for a few seconds before breathing in again.

Try the 54321 exercise: Sitting or standing wherever you are, take a moment to notice and name out loud or to yourself five things you can see right now, four things you can touch, three things you can hear, two things you can smell and one thing you can taste.

When talking with someone, say what you are feeling inside. Just speaking it out loud can actually help defuse the feeling itself

If youre a parent, keep in mind that your children are noticing and reacting to the way youre handling these times, says Polly Gipson, Ph.D., a pediatric psychologist who heads U-Ms Trauma and Grief Clinic. Thats especially true if your family has lost someone to COVID-19, or you belong to a group or live in an area thats being especially affected by current events.

But you can be a model to them by engaging in healthy mental wellbeing self-care and finding ways to focus on positive memories, things to be grateful for, family togetherness because of the lack of scheduled activities, and more. She recommends the CALM method: Communicate with the child to share information, find out what they know and validate their feelings; help them stay Active and creative; Learn how children in general, or your child in particular, show distress; and Model self-care by using positive strategies and sharing them with children.

Childrens future mental health depends in part on how theyre affected by adverse experiences now, both their own and those that their larger community is going through. If you notice troubling behavior in the children in your life, speaking up to get help can make a major difference.

Alcohol and cannabis sales have shot up during the past six months, and jokes about drinking or using marijuana-derived products to cope with these times are rampant on social media. This is typical during stressful times, says Mark Ilgen, Ph.D., the addiction psychologist who directs the U-M Addiction Treatment Services. But he warns that as time goes on, what was once a short-term coping mechanism could develop into a substance-use problem.

Fortunately, he says, support groups, twelve-step groups and addiction care specialists have pivoted to offer online help. And newer medications can help people who have developed a dependence on alcohol, opioids and more. If youre not sure you need this level of help, he notes that many people can cut back on their substance use on their own, by setting targets for themselves including limits on daily or weekly alcohol or cannabis intake. If you find you cant stay within these self-imposed limits, thats a time to seek help. Find more information on the U-M Addiction Treatment Services COVID-19 Addiction & Recovery Resources page.

Above all else, the experts note, if you or someone youre in contact with have been feeling hopeless or even suicidal, its crucial to get help. Dont shy away from discussing the topic, and get in touch with a primary care provider if its not an urgent situation. For urgent or life-threatening situations, contact the National Suicide Prevention hotline at 800-273-8255 or call 911.

I Learned Proper Portion Control Through WW And Lost 107 Pounds In 2 Years – Women’s Health

My name is Katy Allen (@kallen_cooks), and I am 23. I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri, where I work as a labor and delivery nurse. I joined WW (formerly Weight Watchers) and learned proper portion controland I feel like my healthiest, happiest self.

My weight has fluctuated up and down my entire life. As a child and throughout middle school, I was heavier than my close friends and family members, and very aware of it. I was told I was just "big boned" and born "the opposite" of my tall and skinny sister.

My self worth revolved around my body image and how I was perceived by others, even at a young age. I would put myself on cleanses or fad diets, and spend hours exercising in the evening. Then I would binge on anything I could find in the pantry. This was a revolving cycle, and it was just my normal.

Once I began high school, I got into dance and joined the competitive poms team. I was in better shape those years but still had a very poor relationship with my body image. I saw myself as bigger than the other girls, and always felt self conscious in group settings. Throughout this time I had a poor sense of portion control and continued to eat mindlessly.

My senior year of high school through the end of my freshman year of college, I kicked it into high gear with exercise and healthier eating. I lost around 20 pounds. This was the first time I was ever able to lose a significant amount of weight, and I was hooked. I was running more than five miles a day, tracking my calories, and going to the gym before school at 6 a.m.

But gradually this lifestyle became less feasible with nursing classes, an ankle injury, and my first experiences with depression and anxiety. I stopped exercising and returned to an unhealthy diet of fast food, sugar, and whatever was accessible. By the end of college, I had gained around 80 pounds. I graduated college at my heaviest weight ever, 253 pounds at 21 years old.

I hardly slept and was chronically fatigued. Walking up a flight of stairs would leave me breathless and my joints would ache. My ankles and knees were in pain to the point that I was taking Aleve most days of the week and wearing a brace.

My blood pressure and blood glucose levels were high as well. My doctor was concerned that I was developing prediabetes and hypertension that would need to be managed with medication. These health problems, in my case, were preventableand uncommon for someone in their early 20s.

Aside from the physical health problems I had encountered, I was extremely uncomfortable in my own body. My clothes no longer fit, and I was wearing sizes bigger than those I was used to. I was also getting ready to begin my career as a nurse, where I would be constantly on my feet and expected to take care of multiple patients at a time. How could I take great care of others when I wasn't taking care of myself?

I was moving to a new city and starting fresh. I decided that the day I took my nursing boards my journey would begin. I began WW (Wellness Wins, formerly known as Weight Watchers) on June 26, 2018.

I knew that I was going to be in this for the long haul, so a quick cleanse or restrictive diet plan was not going to work for me. I heard of WW from family members and had seen it advertised at work, so I decided to give it a try. What has been the most helpful is adding the foods I eat to a daily tracker. Every food or recipe is assigned a SmartPoint value based on the ingredients and serving size.

With WW, no foods are off limits or considered "bad" foods, regardless of their SmartPoint value. This system has motivated me to measure my foods, rather than mindlessly eating from the bag or dumping a random amount into a recipe.

For the first year of my weight loss journey, I went to a conventional gym and took yoga classes here and there. I took my first Pure Barre class with a friend in June of 2019 and have been going regularly ever since!

I prefer low impact workouts rather than more strenuous activities such as HIIT or running. Pure Barre, combined with regular yoga, has helped improve my muscle tone, endurance, and self confidence.

I want other women to know that my weight loss and overall wellness journey has not been linear. There have been highs and lows, physically and emotionally, throughout this entire process. And there will continue to be!

Living a healthy lifestyle is a choice, and it is one that I make every single day. There is a small chance that I will stay this weight for the rest of my life, and that is okay. I now know that I have the tools to remain healthy and make the best choices for my body.

Herbalife Nutrition Extends Partnership With National Hispanic Council on Aging Under The Nutrition for Zero Hunger Initiative – PRNewswire

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Herbalife Nutrition (NYSE: HLF), a premier global nutrition company, together with the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, today announced an expanded partnership with the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA), the leading organization working to improve the lives of older Hispanic adults, their families and caregivers. The partnership empowers the aging Hispanic population with necessary tools to support their health by providing access to healthy nutrition, as well as nutrition education and fitness programs to promote healthy aging. NHCOA joins the Company's growing network of nonprofit organizations under its Nutrition for Zero Hunger (NFZH) initiative, further demonstrating the often-overlooked effects of hunger and malnutrition in different communities.

"Our Nutrition for Zero Hunger campaign is designed to do one thing: eradicate hunger around the world. Working with the National Hispanic Council on Aging, we will expand our reach as we tackle this global crisis," said Alan Hoffman, executive vice president, Global Corporate Affairs, Herbalife Nutrition.

According to NHCOA, by 2060 the aging Hispanic population is expected to grow to 21.5 million.

Herbalife Nutrition has partnered with NHCOA since 2014, supporting their health and nutrition programs, including their senior housing facility, Casa Iris, ensuring all residents have access to healthy nutrition. Over the six-year partnership, the Company has contributed nearly $200,000 to support ongoing programs, including over $60,000 of healthy nutrition products. In 2020, due to the overwelming needs of the community, the Company further supported Casa Iris residents with healthy nutrition needs, including individual nutrition packages containing products, blenders, healthy snacks and nutrition education materials including tips and heathy recipes.

The continued partnership under NFZH supports NHCOA's health and well-being programs, which consist of training sessions focused on health priorities including prevention and risk factors of diabetes, obesity, and cancer, and also promotes heathy eating habits and physical activity.

"We've seen how accessible health information can motivate people to do amazing things for themselves, their families and their communities," said Dr. Yanira Cruz, President and CEO of NHCOA.
