Don't know how many of you have tried to read and comprehend articles that are published in "scholarly" ,"professional-type" publications, so I present the following for your amusement or edification(sorry I don't know how to do links and it does take some time to enter this in menu bar).....don't let title scare you too much and after a few sentences that get your head spinning, go to "Discussion" part and try to read that, esp if you've heard of wnt or COX2......i really don't know what most of this article is about...... but it sounds interesting to me.....its at


Try this as well:www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2407/11/154/abstract

(also not an easy read--just another example of "science-speak")

Many sites I've cited here are those that provide summaries or rewrites (medicalnewstoday, for instance)so we can understand stuff that was originally written like the two I present here......

some other interesting items about CRC on the internet lately.........

Imprime PGG may be of use to those with both wild and mutated Kras (medicalnewstoday.com/articles/222984.php)

Zaltrap/afilbercept, designed to block blood supply to tumor, is proving effective...numerous sites

medicalnewstoday.com/articles/223354.php on CTNNB1,obesity and CRC

physorg.com/print219654726.html "The past,present and future of cancer"

The following is deemed one of the most-read articles from the journal "Cell":The Hallmarks of Cancer"


and to all a good day.........steve

Apoptosis Inducing Effect of Plumbagin on Colonic Cancer Cells Depends on Expression of COX-2

The natural triterpene maslinic acid induces apoptosis in HT29 colon cancer cells by a JNK-p53-dependent mechanism

Imprime PGG may be of use to those with both wild and mutated Kras

on CTNNB1,obesity and CRC

Is Clinical Connections.com. You can see all the latest studies and clinical trials for all types of cancer. Search around a little, there is a lot going on, and it is pretty easy reading and gives all the contact information. I check there often to see if there is anything new going on by way of clinical trials.

Take care - Tina

relevant for my exercise thread. i have been pushing this for months here.
so few joined the post alas, i am exercising and not eating sugar.

now science proof about it.


"These results provide evidence for a possible interactive effect of tumor CTNNB1 signaling and patients' energy balance status in determining tumor cell behavior. Our data support the hypothesis that progression of a tumor with an inactive WNT-CTNNB1 signaling pathway might be influenced by energy intake and expenditure, whereas a tumor with an active WNT-CTNNB1 signaling pathway might progress independent of energy balance status. Although our data need to be confirmed by independent data sets, tumor CTNNB1 status may serve as a predictive biomarker for response to a prescription for physical activity (exercise) in clinical practice. Because physical activity is a modifiable lifestyle factor, our data may have considerable clinical implications," the authors write.
