Antibiotics for pneumoconiosis have recently been developed in Taiwan and approved by the U.S., Taiwan and mainland China FDAs. We also developed new drugs to treat pancreatic cancer and a new diagnostic tool for early detection of cervical cancer. We have affiliation with the WHO in distributing our antibiotics to developing countries. We are also carrying out clinical trials for a dengue vaccine in neighboring countries. Since we have very good control of malaria, our team has been sent to Sao Tome and Principe and case numbers decreased rapidly. Entire hospitals are almost vacant because malaria patients were all cured. This weekend is the one year anniversary of President Tsais inauguration. Can we expect her to make any statement to try and resolve this or come to a compromise with China over this issue? I think its very important, in her mind, that we try our best to keep sustainable, predictable and also consistent cross-strait relations with mainland China.

“We are investigating the ‘immune landscapes’ of oral cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, to understand which immune cell types infiltrate these tumours and how we can activate these cells to kill the cancer cells. We are also working on gall bladder and pancreatic cancers which have emerged as cancers associated with infection and inflammation,” she says. Her team is researching on identifyingimmune signatures” or biomarkers that will help in predicting the response to therapy. “We want to develop immune cell-based therapies for cancer patients. But we still do not have adequate infrastructure and regulatory policies developed to promote cancer research. We need to develop a strong network between research organisations engaged in cancer research and this has been initiated by the Tata Memorial Centre through National Cancer Grid (NCG),” adds Chiplunkar.

OncoMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:OMED) tumbled as its key drug demcizumab flopped in another cancer trial. All trials currently underway involving demcizumab have been halted after the phase II DENALI trial showed no benefit over a placebo in a combination treatment for non-small cell lung cancer. In fact, placebo patients showed better results sparking a complete review of the demcizumab program with partner Celgene. Last year, a trial of demcizumab for metastatic pancreatic cancer failed to meet either its primary endpoint of progression-free survival or even the secondary endpoint of overall survival. Oncomed reported a first quarter loss of US$22.6 mln, or a 61c per share loss (US$27.2mln, or 90c) with cash in hand reduced to US$156.9mln from US$184.6mln. The company added its expenses this year would amount to around US$90mln with its cash sufficient to keep it funded until the third quarter of 2019.

Family possessions should stay with family…Are you f*****g kidding me? How much more money do you possible need? PHOTOS:‘Slap In The Face!’ Patrick Swayze’s Widow Lisa Niemi Sells His Beloved Ranch To StrangerIgnores Pleas From Family & Fans To Make It A Museum Niemi, who inherited the Ghost actor's entire $40 million estate after his 2009 death from pancreatic cancer, defended herself in her own Facebook post, claiming she had offered some the items to the Swayze clan – but they refused . Actually, months ago I offered items to them, Lisa wrote, claiming several of Patrick's relatives received the mementos, but others did not contact her. I'm sure you've seen that they have not always treated me kindly, but I didn't factor that in when I pulled these treasures aside for them, she wrote. Still waiting for an address.

And like many who get a diagnosis of a serious illness at an advanced age, her first decision wasnt what the best treatment plan might be but rather whether she should seek treatment at all.
