         1. Two Nutrients Work Against Cancer Therapy (2nd week)

         2. New non-invasive device for diabetes patients 
According to data from the 2014 National Diabetes Statistics Report, over 9.3% of the American population has diabetes, and over 8.1 million cases were undiagnosed. Patients with the disease have to watch their blood glucose levels and the traditional way was through finger pricking and test strips. But researchers at the University of Leeds, UK have developed a device that uses a low-power laser that reads the levels without needing to puncture the skin. Professor Gin Jose, who help develop the device, said, “This will allow people to self-regulate and minimize emergency hospital treatment. This wearable device would then be just one step from a product which sends alerts to smart phones or readings directly to doctors, allowing them to profile how a person is managing their diabetes over time.” The device uses a Nano-engineered silica glass that uses ions to read the concentration of glucose in the patient’s blood. The glass is similar to the glass used on smartphones, making the device cheaper for hospitals and patients.

         6. Doctors find compounds that stop the growth of brain cancer cells and breast tumors
Researchers at the University of Hawai’i Cancer Center have developed two compounds that are found to inhibit signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) which is a gene found to be very active in certain cancers like brain and breast cancers. The compounds, hydroxamic acid-based inhibitor (SH5-07) and benzoic acid-based inhibitor (SH4-54) work by blocking vital functions of the STAT3 gene and prevent it from growing more cancerous cells. James Turkson, PhD, Chief Academic Lead of the University of Hawai’i Cancer Center said, “We would like to advance these studies to turn the chemical compounds into new anti-cancer drugs to help patients potentially have better survival chances.”
