These 5 Israeli advances could transform cancer treatment

This article is sponsored by the Israel Cancer Research Fund.

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States, responsible for 22.5 percent of American fatalities. Only heart disease is more deadly. In Israel, cancer is the No. 1 killer. That’s partly why Israel has become a research leader in the fight against the disease. Many of the world’s most effective cancer treatments have roots in Israeli research, sometimes going back decades. The work taking place in Israeli labs today may lead to lifesaving treatments years in the future.

Karcinom je drugi vodeči uzrok smrti u USA , odgovoran za 22,5% smrti. Samo su srčane bolesti smrtonosnije. U Izraelu je karcinom  "ubica" broj 1. To je i dijelom razlog zašto je Izrael postao vođa u istraživanjima  u borbi  protiv  te bolesti. Mnogi od najuspješnijih tretmana u svijetu imaju korijene u istraživanjima u Izraelu. Rad koji se danas odvija u izraelskim laboratorijima mogu dovesti do tretmana koji će spašavati živote u godinama koje dolaze .

Postoje pet područja istraživanja koja obećavaju  u studijama za bolju detekciju i tretman karcinoma.

  Ovdje ćemo navesti samo njihove originalne nazive , a detalji   se nalaze u originalnom članku na JTA Daily Briefing 

Mutant reeducation camp and the fight against ovarian cancer

In a program at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science financed in part by the Israel Cancer Research Fund, Dr. Varda Rotter is looking for ways to fight the disease on the molecular level using a protein known as the “king of tumor suppressors.”  The protein, p53, stops the formation of tumors......  Rotter hopes her team’s research will result in methods that can be applied along with immunotherapy to give women with ovarian cancer a better chance of beating the disease.

Restoring infertility? Hit the restart button.

For many cancer patients, surviving is just the first part of the battle. They often face serious lifelong problems, such as infertility or the loss of healthy tissue that is highly difficult to regrow. “How do you replace damaged body parts?” asked Dr. Jacob Hanna of the Weizmann Institute. The key, Hanna and many others believe, lies in stem cells. . Hanna is using ICRF funding to research ways to take cells from healthy areas of the patient’s body and turn them back into induced embryonic stem cells... “We want to make mature human cells in the Petri dish,” Hanna said. “If this is successful, it could be a major breakthrough for solving infertility problems in general, not only for women who underwent chemotherapy.”

To fight brain cancer, think small. Very, very small.

Glioblastoma, a particularly aggressive and deadly form of brain cancer, carries a very grim prognosis: Patients have a median survival time of about 15 months from the day of discovery.
Tel Aviv University researcher Dr. Dan Peer is seeking ways to fight brain tumors using a targeted nanoparticle platform to transport drugs directly to the sites that need treatment rather than a more general chemotherapy or surgery. Targeted treatments the size of a nanometer – a millionth of a millimeter — would minimize the effects on the rest of the body by targeting only the cancer cells and avoiding healthy cells nearby....
