Progen Industries . Announced today positive preliminary results from a Phase II study of PI-88 for the treatment of patients with primary liver cancer following surgical resection of the tumor. The study showed that PI-88 increased time, results, arecurrence by 76 percent.
The treatment of patients in a post – resection liver cancer setting is a very good match for the biological mechanism of action of PI-88 We know despite the patient’s surgery to remove the tumor are still small tumors. Available. PI-88 works through a process called angiogenesis, or the inhibition of the growth of new blood vessels to these tumors, and also to the spread of tumors or metastases. It is this dual mechanism of action that we believe PI-88 has the potential an exciting an exciting alternative to current cancer therapies.
In the next 40 years, nearly all of the 2.3 billion projected increase will be in the less developed regions, with nearly half in Africa. Continue reading “Progen Industries.”

The researchers were able to check the exact location of tumor, even when they were about 1 inch in diameter, Professor with scanning patients with a 2D/3D imaging technique called Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography localize with conventional computed tomography scan. By using these two scanning methods, the team had able to determine where the drug was attached insulinoma cells.. In contrast to other NETs, insulinomas have no receptors for a hormone called somatostatin in sufficient numbers and density recognized by recognized by the established OctreoScan.

Driving is a very different challenge. 45 percent of the Peli and his research team compared 12 subjects with hemianopia to 12 visually normal people, matched by age, gender and years of driving experience. All subjects drove for about 120 minutes on city streets and country roads. During the journey pedestrians appeared at random intervals along the roadway and at intersections.. More than one million people suffer from hemianopia, a condition in which one half of the visual field is blind in both eyes , usually the result of a stroke or head injury.
