anti-vaxxers
[...]
Unvaccinated children and those with suppressed immune systems – like Montantes – are the most vulnerable to measles, which kills between one and two people for every 1,000 it infects. The virus can also cause brain inflammation, called encephalitis, and permanent brain damage at about the same rate. In 2017, measles killed 110,000 people, mostly children under five, according to the World Health Organization.

Doctors hail world first as woman’s advanced breast cancer is eradicated | Science | The Guardian
A woman with advanced breast cancer which had spread around her body has been completely cleared of the disease by a groundbreaking therapy that harnessed the power of her immune system to fight the tumours.

It is the first time that a patient with late-stage breast cancer has been successfully treated by a form of immunotherapy that uses the patient’s own immune cells to find and destroy cancer cells that have formed in the body.

Chemicals in packaging, carpets and non-stick pans 'may contribute to obesity' | Science | The Guardian
Chemicals used to make non-stick pots and pans, stain-resistant carpets, and food packaging may contribute to high levels of obesity by disrupting the body’s ability to burn calories, scientists say.

Researchers at Harvard University examined the effects of compounds called perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), which have already raised concerns among some health experts after animal experiments and other studies linked them to cancer, high cholesterol and immune problems.

New breast cancer vaccine ‘stops disease in its tracks’ - The Scotsman
The new treatment helped stimulate the immune systems of 80 per cent of women who took part in a clinical trial and almost one quarter of patients experienced tumour shrinkage, according to researchers from the US. However the jab proved most effective in the very earliest stages of the disease. The vaccine targets a molecule that cancer cells use to hide themselves from our natural defences.

Sleep deprivation 'costs UK £40bn a year' - BBC News
Sleep-deprived workers are costing the UK economy £40bn a year and face a higher risk of death, says a new study.
The calculation is based on tired employees being less productive or absent from work altogether.
Research firm Rand Europe, which used data from 62,000 people, said the loss equated to 1.86% of economic growth.
The biggest impact was on health, with those sleeping less than six hours a night 13% more likely to die than those sleeping between seven and nine hours.
The study evaluated the economic cost of insufficient sleep in the UK, US, Canada, Germany and Japan.

Guido Westerwelle hat den Kampf gegen sein Krebsleiden verloren.
Guido Westerwelle hatte inständig gehofft, die tückische Krankheit Leukämie überwunden zu haben. In einem langen Gespräch mit dem SPIEGEL hatte er im Herbst 2015 einen Satz gesagt, der jeden Menschen anrühren musste, der zur Empathie fähig ist: "Ich will unbedingt weiterleben."
Mit dem früheren "Stern"-Chefredakteur Dominik Wichmann hatte Westerwelle ein Buch veröffentlicht, das ebenfalls den Blutkrebs thematisierte, der ihn von einem Tag auf den anderen heimgesucht hatte. "Zwischen zwei Leben: Von Liebe, Tod und Zuversicht." Der Ton: ernst, gleichwohl optimistisch.

Doch zuletzt ging es ihm wieder schlechter, seit Ende November lag Westerwelle wieder in der Universitätsklinik Köln. Nun ist er an den Folgen der Leukämie-Behandlung gestorben - mit nur 54 Jahren.

Radical cancer treatment seeks to control rather than destroy tumours | Science | The Guardian
Instead of eradicating cancer, the new goal for doctors needs to be prevention of cancer disease, she adds. “We need to stabilise tumour growth and enable gradual, controlled regression over time.” Charles Swanton, a scientist at the Francis Crick Institute in London, who is part-funded by Cancer Research UK, said: “How cancers become resistant to treatment has been one of the greatest challenges facing doctors and their patients. This work tries to find a way around a phenomenon known as ‘competitive release’, where drug resistant cancer cells survive and take over the tumour once the drug-sensitive cells have been killed off. “When this happens in cancers, the disease is often much harder to treat due to the limited number of drug options available.

Genetics of cancer tumours reveal possible treatment revolution | Science | The Guardian
[Immunotherapy does] not work in everyone [and every cancer]. One approach releases the brakes on the immune system, unleashing the full force of killer T cells, which are otherwise dampened down by cancer cells. But to work, the patient’s immune system must first recognise the cancer as the enemy. Charles Swanton, an expert on cancer evolution who led the latest study at the Francis Crick Institute in London, said the discovery of surface proteins shared by all of a patient’s cancer cells provided an “achilles heel” for future therapies to target. [...] As tumours grow, they evolve. Over time, mutations scramble the DNA, and one part of the tumour starts to look very different to another. [And chemo stops working.] [...] [NOT CHEAP!] //&! bit.ly/1WJVe59 - Experimental therapy tested in mice could lead to patients living healthy lives with tumours constantly kept in check with low doses of medicine //&! bit.ly/1RM5yIO

‘This is unprecedented’ says researcher after more than half of terminally ill blood cancer patients experienced complete remission in early clinical trials [...] Tests so far have only targeted certain blood cancers, and the researchers acknowledged they needed to work on tumors and track how long patients would remain in remission. Cancer cells can sometimes hide unnoticed by the body’s defenses, or simply overwhelm them and throw the immune system into overdrive. [...] “Much like chemotherapy and radiotherapy, it’s not going to be a save-all,” Riddell said of the new therapy, adding: “I think immunotherapy has finally made it to a pillar of cancer therapy.” A paper on the ALL research is currently under review and pending publication. //&! bbc.in/1OdNqlX
