¿Qué cáncer? ¿Cómo es que un tumor empieza a crecer sin control? ¿Por qué sigue creciendo?
Hoy les platicaré sobre las características que adquirieren las células cancerígenas para volverse ese enemigo que tanto dolor nos produce
#WorldCancerDay #DiaMundialContraElCancer
El cáncer en es un conjunto de más de 200 tipos de enfermedades en el que algunas células del cuerpo se multiplican sin control y se diseminan a otras partes del cuerpo (lo que llamamos metástasis)
En condiciones normales, las células se forman y se multiplican (división celular) para formar células nuevas a medida que el cuerpo las necesita. Cuando las células envejecen o se dañan, mueren y las células nuevas las reemplazan.

Today is #WorldCancerDay and I encourage all, but especially women, to please go to your doctor for regular check ups, listen to your body, and demand cancer marker tests be done. Ovarian, cervical, and breast cancers can and are treatable if caught early.
There is nothing as arduous as the battle with cancer. Even though I have been in remission for 3 years now, my body is still not back to its regular self and every 6 months I have to wait and see if it's happened to come back or not. #WorldCancerDay
I want us to be honest about it. I hated the faux positivity I felt I had to perform as a cancer patient and I had the performative empathy people gave me. On this #WorldCancerDay, the best thing you can do for a cancer patient is just fight alongside them, not pity them.

Today is #WorldCancerDay.

#Cancer is one of the world’s leading causes of death - accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly one in six deaths - despite the fact that all cancers can be treated and many can be prevented or cured.

The most common cancers are breast, lung, colorectal and prostate cancers

#cancer #WorldCancerDay Image
Around 1 in 3 deaths from #cancer are due to tobacco use, high body mass index, alcohol consumption, low fruit and vegetable intake and lack of physical activity

🔴🎥Watch LIVE as WHO/Europe holds a virtual press briefing on COVID-19 with @hans_kluge and technical experts, including a message from @aronanderson ahead of #WorldCancerDay…
The European Region has recorded 12 million new cases in the past week. This is the highest weekly case incidence since the start of the pandemic and is largely being driven by the highly transmissible Omicron variant, as it sweeps from West to East @hans_kluge
30% of all COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began have been reported this year alone.

We now have nearly 150 million reported cases of #COVID19 in Europe and Central Asia to date.

22% of all tests recorded are positive @hans_kluge

Cancer is a personal story for all of us.

This is why we are working on prevention, early diagnosis, and equal access to care.

Ahead of #WorldCancerDay and a year since the #EUCancerPlan, we are launching 4️new actions with specific objectives.
Here they are: ⬇️ Image
Objective 1 ➞ Everyone in our 🇪🇺 Union should get the cancer treatment they need.

Our Cancer Inequalities Registry will help identify and tackle inequalities in cancer prevention and care due to gender, educational attainment and disparities between regions.

#EUCancerPlan Image
Objective 2 ➞ Ensuring 90% of the EU population who qualify for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screenings are offered it by 2025.

Finding cancer at an early stage can save lives. This is why a cancer screening call for evidence is important.

#OnThisDay in 1915, American physicist Robert Hofstadter was born!
Hofstadter was awarded half of the 1961 @NobelPrize in Physics for his contributions towards our understanding of electron scattering as well as the structure of protons and neutrons. #TIL #WorldCancerDay
He is also known for his accurate prediction of two types of meson, which are subatomic particles consisting of one quark and one antiquark: the omega-meson and the rho-meson.
Hofstadter contributed to the development of nuclear medicine, specifically the use of gamma-ray spectroscopy techniques such as positron emission tomography. These medical imaging techniques are used for the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer as well as neurological conditions.

El cáncer es una de las principales causas de muerte en el mundo
Entre el 30 y el 50% de los cánceres se pueden evitar.

10 tips para prevenir

Abro 🧵

#cancerday #WorldCancerDay #DiaMundialContraElCancer
.1- Ejercicio: ¿Cuánto? ¿Entre 150-300 min a la semana…Toooodo cuenta, también la actividad física ligera y no continúa... así que estacionar coche lejos, subir escaleras, etc... si hacen la diferencia. Ojo: si tu ejercicio es al aire libre no olvidar bloqueador solar.
2- Tabaco: Es riesgo para casi todos tipos de cáncer, a todas las dosis y en todas las modalidades incluido el de tercera mano (lo que se impregna en ropa y muebles). El tabaquismo es el principal factor de riesgo y ocasiona aproximadamente el 22% de las muertes por cáncer

“This event is an opportunity to be reminded of where we are — we don’t stop for a single minute, and when it comes to cancer we can’t stop,” says @rafaelmgrossi, emphasizing the IAEA has been extremely active in supporting its Member States during the pandemic. #WorldCancerDay
#Radiotherapy has been an optimal treatment option during the #COVID19 pandemic for cancer patients b/c it doesn't compete for in-demand hospital resources such as intensive care unit beds & is amenable to treatments w/ shorter regimens of radiation.” — @IAEANA's May Abdel-Wahab

It's #WorldCancerDay so, let's talk about some of the utter nonsense that's promoted as cancer cure #quackery. Spoiler: none of them cure any kind of cancer. They might give you other health conditions to deal with, though.
(thread: 1/8)
MMS (sodium chlorite solution) & CD (chlorine dioxide). MMS is sold as "water purification drops" & it does do that. It's also touted as a cure for literally everything, inc. cancer. It doesn't cure anything. It does cause gastrointestinal distress.
Homeopathy: substances so extremely diluted in water or ethanol that no traces of the original molecule remain. In quite a few cases, that's a good thing--because the stuff in question is pretty nasty. Anyway, at best it's just sugar.

It’s #WorldCancerDay which is something I never thought I’d care about. But then I was diagnosed w bone marrow cancer aka Multiple Myeloma this past summer. I was 38, had a 4 month old. Didn’t feel sick at all but I knew something was wrong. Here’s some stuff I want you to know:
The first doctor I went to told me nothing was wrong and that I needed to lose weight. My second opinion doctor is the reason we discovered that my bone marrow was full of cancer. Always be the expert in your body. Advocate for yourself. Because these doctors are just people.
Then, the first oncologist I saw was a mess and sexist and AGAIN, I had to get a second opinion to get to the bottom of what was going on, even though he was “an expert.” I finally got an appt with a sought-after specialist who barely squeezed me in, and that changed everything.

On World Cancer Day, our hearts go out to all those who have struggled because of cancer, those who have survived, and those who have passed away #WorldCancerDay
We also want to raise awareness about patients who have been wrongly refused cancer treatment under current #NHS charging rules. #Cancer treatment should always be provided under the safeguards, but the rules are so complicated that hospitals are struggling to implement them

On #WorldCancerDay I call upon the medical fraternity & experts to raise awareness on cancer prevention among people.

Greater focus and attention must be paid towards early detection, diagnosis, treatment of cancer. Image
Periodic screening of people, especially those at risk of developing cancer must be undertaken in both rural and urban areas. #WorldCancerDay2020
I call upon the medical fraternity to create awareness among the people, particularly the youth, on the dangers posed by sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy dietary habits.

Two NEW modelling studies: Cervical cancer could be eliminated in countries worst affected by the disease, and 62 million women’s lives could be saved by 2120: 1)… 2)…
These studies quantify for the first time how many cervical cancer cases could be averted and how many women's lives saved in 78 LMICs if @WHO proposed measures for cervical cancer elimination are implemented [video of scenarios]
@WHO "The findings from these two modelling analyses show us that considerable progress can be made in reducing the intolerable and preventable global burden of #cervicalcancer"

The new year begins and I usher into a scientific journey where I shall be challenging myself with scientific quest and reviewing a scientific article/blog/interview/technique or facts on a daily basis. (or at least try😉) #365DaysOfScience
Let the journey begin.
The most cited article (over 300,000 times) is the @jbiolchem paper for a technique to estimate protein concentration in a solution. The paper is "Protein measurement with the folin phenol reagent".
Image: @nature Image
Yes, the classic Lowry's method was published in May 1951. This is a colourimetric assay which gives an estimation of the amount of protein based on a standard curve obtained from a protein of known concentration (usually BSA).
