Diet & Colon Cancer Risk | AMAZING TIPS to follow a HEALTHY DIET – Dr. Ravindra BS | Doctors’ Circle [Video]

Dr Ravindra BS | Appointment Booking No. 8762910298Consultant Gastroenterologist & Hepatologist | Meenakshi Gastro Liver Care,BengaluruDiet is one of the common reasons for colon cancers especially when we use red meat. That is carcinogenic in Western countries it has been proven and the use of stale foods lot of fats is also one of the things lot of oils and fried things and nowadays we use lot of soft drinks that are carbonate sometimes they can also cause. By and large red meat and chemicals what we consume. So with the food we eat if we don’t wash them they enter the small intestine. Red meat is better to be avoided. The fatty food it can accelerate in those who have genetic issues, also the use of carbonated drinks can also accelerate the problem. That is why it is better to have a good diet with vegetables fruits with vegetables fruits , yoghurt, curd, buttermilk, even fishes, eggs are good and better to avoid red meat. #expertskisuno#ColonCancer#dietandcancer

Interrogating mechanisms of tumor specific T cell exhaustion and activity in pancreatic ductal adeno [Video]

Presented By: Adam Burrack, M.S., Ph.D.Speaker Biography: Dr. Burrack obtained B.S. in Biology at the University of Wisconsin and a M.S. in Physiology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He went on to complete his PhD in Immunology at the University of Colorado – Anschutz Medical Campus. Family history of both type 1 diabetes and pancreatic cancer have greatly influenced Dr. Burrack’s scientific interests and research experiences. During graduate school, Dr. Burrack studied autoimmune diabetes recurrence and transplant recognition in a mouse model of type 1 diabetes in the laboratory of Ronald Gill. He then pursued post-doctoral at the University of Minnesota where he defined antigens that are recognized by alloreactive T cells direct transplant recognition. Webinar: Interrogating mechanisms of tumor-specific T cell exhaustion and activity in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomaWebinar Abstract: Progress developing immune-based treatments to treat the highly lethal pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) has lagged behind other cancer types. This may be due, in part, to a fibroinflammatory and immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment (TME). To investigate mechanisms of resistance, we developed a novel mouse model to track pancreatic-tumor specific T cells. While expression of the bioluminescent molecule click beetle red (CB) by tumor epithelial cells permits longitudinal imaging of pancreatic tumor growth in vivo, CB also and unexpectedly generates an immunodominant CD8 T cell epitope (CB101-109:H-2Db) in C57Bl/6 mice. Orthotopic implantation of CB+ PDA cells into syngeneic immunocompetent mice results in the activation, expansion and intratumoral accumulation of CB-specific T cells, thereby modeling the large fraction of PDA cases that have a significant T cell infiltrate.Earn PACE Credits:1.

Cells, Gene Programs, and Spatially Organized Immune Hubs in MMRd and MMRp Colorectal Cancer [Video]

Speaker: Karin Pelka, Gladstone InstitutesKarin Pelka earned her PhD in innate immunity from the University of Bonn in Germany, where she discovered a key regulatory mechanism that controls the detection of infection- or danger-associated nucleic acids by sensors of the innate immune system. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Broad Institute, she led a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional single-cell RNA-sequencing and spatial profiling effort on human colorectal cancer. She joined UCSF this fall and is now an assistant investigator at Gladstone Institutes and an assistant professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at UCSF. She is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research, the German Society for Immunology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Immunologie), and the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer. Her work aims to understand how immunological processes are regulated in human tissues in order to leverage the immune system in the fight against diseases such as cancer.This talk was given at the Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology Symposium on November 3, 2021.
