1/As promised & after reading $NTLA latest Q1 2022 financial report here is my analysis regarding @intelliatx latest corporate status. I have focused only on the main issues that I found to be the most interesting & relevant. #CRISPR #GeneEditing #BioTech #FinTwit #Genomics👇
2/NTLA-2001 is the most advanced In-Vivo #CRISPR/#Cas9 #GeneEditing program in $NTLA portfolio & is aimed to treat Transthyretin Amyloidosis - (ATTR). NTLA-2001 could potentially halt & reverse the disease in a “one time” treatment by knocking out the TTR gene with a single dose
3/In February $NTLA has presented an updated clinical data from its Phase 1 study of NTLA-2001 which included 15 patients with ATTR amyloidosis. IMO NTLA-2001 readout looks promising & here is a summary that I wrote shortly after @intelliatx’s presentation of NTLA-2001👇

10 minute reminder: @VanessaPorter will be on stage in the auditorium shortly with her talk: 'Identification of novel #genomic structures and regulation patterns at #HPV integration events in cervical #cancer'. #nanoporeconf
VP: HPV is a necessary driver of cervical cancer. HPV integration is present 70% of cervical cancers. Often disrupts E2 gene & causes structural rearrangements. #nanoporeconf
VP: HPV integration often upregulated neighbouring genes. #nanoporeconf

एका दिवसात होत नाही तर त्याची
पूर्वलक्षणे बरीच आधी पासून दिसतात.
या लक्षणांची माहिती असणे, त्याक़डे

दिल्यास या आजारापासून सुरक्षा करता येते.

We're also looking for support concerning cancer therapy. Funds and/or medicines needed.
Yesterday alone, we found lumps in the breast of three patients examined. The diagnosis alone will cost several hundred euros. Should chemotherapy follow, the costs will amount to several thousand euros. Per person!!
In addition, there are several patients with existing cancer therapy. Allegedly, these are partly provided by official health authorities or large humanitarian organizations, but our attempts were regularly rejected

Today, @AsthmaIreland made a public statement in support of Minister @EamonRyan's proposed Solid Fuel Regulations. We called on all parties to support the regulations in a bid to end the 1,300 premature deaths caused annually by fine particle emissions from burning solid fuels.
The new regulations would ban smoky coal and wet wood, and prohibiting the commercial sale of sod turf, will save lives, but provide for continued turf extraction by those with turbary rights and distribution within small communities. @Dept_ECC
Air pollution can cause as well as exacerbate #chronicillness like #COPD, #asthma, heart disease and #stroke, #cancer, #diabetes and #dementia. Irish clinical research also links spikes in air pollution with increased hospital admissions for asthma and heart disease @roinnslainte

🔬An international consortium, led by #IRBBarcelona & the biotech company @MerusNV, reports the discovery of MCLA-158, the first clinical candidate screened in #organoids targeting 🎯 #cancer #stemcells of solid tumors.



#IRBScience Image
Named Petosemtamab, the antibody MCLA-158 prevents the onset of #metastasis (that is, the spread of #cancer to other vital organs) and slows the growth of primary tumours in experimental models of cancer. Image
The study also lays the groundwork for the use of #organoids in the #DrugDiscovery process undertaken by pharmaceutical companies.

Organoids are patient-derived samples that can be grown in the laboratory, and they reproduce certain aspects of the tumour compartment. Image

New paper out! Our own David Zander has successfully published his thesis work in @cddpress’ Cell Death & Disease!

Just to highlight this: David is an MD but he worked his tail off pipetting this study! A big Thank You to @TRR179_2 for the stipend!

So what is it about?
• Damage to our cells’ genome DNA can lead to #cancer if it goes unnoticed (cell not committing suicide).
• Vice versa, many chemotherapies (and radiotherapy!) are based on killing cells by inducing #DNADamage.

In his study, David used…
…live cell microscopy (@EssenBioScience) to monitor cell proliferation and death upon treatment with doxorubicin (chemotherapeutic inducing DNA breaks) or gamma-irradiation (γIR). As expected, both treatments kill cells ⬇️

There’s a lot of overthinking going on, but there’s victory in mind. Someone is stuck in their head right now but there will be forward movement sooner than later. You might be waiting for someone…

There’s deep chemistry, attraction, and love felt between you both, and you might think about each other a lot, but someone is feeling the weight of their responsibilities mixed with the depth of their feelings and its been too much, so they’ve put focus back on themselves...

didn’t feel this was salvageable, but things are changing. This is someone you’ve known in a past life, so they might’ve triggered you like no one else could. This person, over time, was forced to grow in ways that were foreign to them all because they came in contact with you…
They are releasing negative thoughts and patterns they’ve seemed to pick up in previous connections in order to trust in the journey of this one. Sometimes trials and tribulations have a way of bringing connections closer together, and after some healthy…

I am a dr who has dedicated her career to people w/ #cancer.
I am the grateful daughter of a #lymphoma survivor.
I have #asthma.
Why wouldn't I #wearamask if it might prevent an illness, death, or #longcovid disability?
If you find masks uncomfortable, I can suggest some to try.
(And then I'm going to talk to you for the ENTIRE flight & all the way down the terminal to baggage claim & ground transportation about masks, so be ready if you're in the seat next to me & do this. Might be better just to #WearAMask.😂)

#MedTwitter #TrueStory
And then when I change your mind, you'll be in an airplane thumbs-up selfie with me wearing your favorite of the several brands of spare N95 masks I have in my backpack.

The more I think about airlines abruptly allowing mask removal w/o warning—mid-flight for many—the angrier I get. People who are #immunocompromised had no choice not to travel or to upgrade their protection at that point. Some will go on to die. As an oncologist, I am enraged.
If you haven’t had #cancer or been a caregiver to someone with it, you don’t know how much people endure. I’m a breast oncologist. Our patients have breasts amputated, lose their fertility, go bald, risk nerve damage, infection, & more from chemo, because they want to live.
The fact that the airlines made a corporate decision to drop masks w/o warning—any airline could’ve chosen to give crew/passengers hrs or days of notice—disgusts me. For an industry that prides itself on safety, this is a fail.

❤️ Love messages for #Aries #Virgo #Pisces #Leo #Aquarius #Cancer (s,m,r,v) “I fear that you are going to find someone better if I don’t get it sooner”. This person is beyond attracted by your physical beauty and more than love, at the moment they are driven by jealousy
and lust. Although they’re wanting to make an offer, but this isn’t in anyways benefiting you. Look at how this connection will affect your personal growth instead. At the moment, you both are draining yourself thinking about this connection. But instead of breaking the cycle,
you both keep giving in what happened in the past. You could be seeing 111 and the universe wants you to know that your thoughts have started to manifest, it is time you reconsider what you want/ manifest. For the most part there is breakthrough, atleast in the channel of

Hundreds of thousands of cancer patients in England face being diagnosed late in the coming years, the Health and Social Care Committee, @commonshealth, warns as it condemns the failure of ministers to tackle the NHS staffing shortages that risk survival rates going into reverse.
In a devastating 52-page report on cancer services in England, the Health and Social Care Committee, @commonshealth, says the absence of any serious attempt by ministers to fill gaps in the #cancer workforce is jeopardising efforts to improve survival rates.
Without urgent action, 340,000 cancer patients will be denied an early diagnosis, which could mean the difference between life and death. MPs found there is no detailed plan to address shortages of clinical oncologists, consultant pathologists, radiologists and specialist nurses.

There’s someone who’s acting cold and detached, but they are watching you carefully. They appear to be over this connection but they really want commitment. This person is hoping that you’ll begin to…
build again. They will be making an offer but they know you’ll be guarded. Spirit is asking that you soften your approach when it comes this individual. Right now your defenses might be up but this cycle of push and pull has to end. There needs to be some clear communication…
without the ego and pride involved. Your higher self wants to be in a more positive position with this individual, and if you’re being honest, you might be missing this person too. The communication coming in will be swift, and it may be a bit short, but someone…

There’s a connection that is currently in the middle of a transition. There might be some bickering and conflict that is currently keeping you both at odds, but there will be a coming together…
The time spent alone has allowed your person, or you both, to recognize how powerful this connection is despite you not seeing eye to eye. This person might’ve been weighing their options, but with your boundaries set in place, and time spent with themselves…
they realize your love feels too good to keep at a distance. Strength has been built between you both, and the bond you share is a spiritual one, so the lessons you learn within this connection help to facility growth not only within you, but between you…

now become their secret. This other individual that your person is currently in a connection with is a karmic that your person can’t seem to distance themselves from. I say all this because this person will be reaching out to you. They want to spend some quality time with…
just you, but they aren’t fully available. This person is interested in getting what they need from you. It seems they are very attracted to you, but they aren’t willing to make the necessary changes to take this connection serious. Keeping this person at a…

Drop the fear and stress because things will be changing quickly for you. This past season might’ve been filled with heartache and loss, but you can’t even begin to see what you’ve gained from this…
Right now it might be hard to have hope when it comes to your circumstances, or maybe your finances, but your rewards will be flooding in. Take a look at the obstacles and challenges you’ve been through so far, and realize how strong you’ve grown because of them…
We all know life is hard sometimes, but there’s a lesson in all seasons even if we don’t want to face them at times. Rejoice even in difficult seasons because once you’ve made it through the seeds you’ve planted and intentions you’ve set will start to come forward…
