U.S. regulators expand number of vehicles affected by Takata recalls http://t.co/NTG7RTSRrG
— The Truth 24.(@TheTruth24US) October 22, 2014
excerpts: The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said in a statement the number of vehicles from 10 automakers covered by recalls this year and in 2013 is now 7.8 million, up 28 percent from the 6.1 million announced on Tuesday. The NHTSA said the new number corrected the vehicle list provided in prior safety bulletins this week, adding some vehicles and excluding others from previous bulletins.
The NHTSA has urged owners of certain Toyota (7203.T), Honda (7267.T), Mazda (7261.T), BMW (BMWG.DE), Nissan (7201.T), Mitsubishi (7211.T), Subaru (9778.T), Chrysler (FCHA.MI), Ford (F.N) and General Motors (GM.N) vehicles to replace installed air bags as soon as possible.
In the expanded bulletin, Honda accounts for almost 5.1 million of the vehicles, Toyota 877,000 vehicles, Nissan almost 695,000 vehicles, BMW nearly 628,000 vehicles and Chrysler more than 371,000 vehicles.

Treatment inhibits key process that enables cancer cells to multiply.
Researchers in London plan to begin clinical trials on a significant new treatment for multiple myeloma by the end of next year.
In laboratory testing, the drug, known as DTP3, killed myeloma cells within human cells and mice without causing any toxic side effects. In a paper published on October 13, 2014 in Cancer Cells, researchers outlined how the drug inhibits a key process that allows cancer cells to multiply.
“Lab studies suggest that DTP3 could have therapeutic benefit for patients with multiple myeloma and potentially several other types of cancer, but we will need to confirm this in our clinical trials, the first of which will start next year,” said lead researcher Professor Guido Franzoso in a press release.
DTP3 was developed through an evaluation of the mechanisms that enable cancer cells to continue multiplying beyond their normal lifespan. Specifically, the researchers studied a protein called nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB), which plays a key role in inflammation, in addition to immune and stress response systems.
“We had known for many years that NF-kB is very important for cancer cells, but because it is also needed by healthy cells, we did not know how to block it specifically,” Franzoso said. “The discovery that blocking the GADD45β/MKK7 segment of the NF-κB pathway with our DTP3 peptide therapeutic selectively kills myeloma cells could offer a completely new approach to treating patients with certain cancers, such as multiple myeloma.” – See more at: http://www.specialtypharmacytimes.com/news/New-Multiple-Myeloma-Drug-Set-to-Begin-Clinical-Trials#sthash.XGAUTmks.Gyz2Cy02.dpuf

Since the city that never sleeps has two international airports in the region — JFK and Newark — that see more people arriving from virus-ridden west African nations than any other part of the country, the Democratic lawmaker urged the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday to dispatch specialized teams to the city as a way to “remain vigilant” against the threat of Ebola.
“We’re also asking, while that team is on the ground here, that they go around and do the same thing our city and state health departments are doing, go inspect the hospitals to make sure that they have everything in place,” Schumer said Sunday.

this pressed for your right to know: Obama Says Ebola Travel Bans Could Make Things Worse – NBC News.com
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Saturday urged Americans to avoid hysteria over Ebola, and played down the idea of travel bans from Ebola-ravaged countries in West Africa, explaining that restrictions could make things worse. Lawmakers this week urged Obama to bar people from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea from entering the United States. Obama has said he is not philosophically opposed to travel bans, but in his weekly address made it clear that he is not leaning toward them.
“We can’t just cut ourselves off from West Africa,” Obama said, explaining it would make it harder to move health workers and supplies into the region, and would motivate people trying to get out the region to evade screening, making it harder to track cases. “Trying to seal off an entire region of the world – if that were even possible – could actually make the situation worse,” he said.

Administration officials insist that a travel ban could actually hurt efforts to fight the virus. The move would “slow down the ability of the United States and other international partners to actually get expertise and capabilities and equipment into the affected areas,” White House Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco said earlier this month.

The idea of a travel ban is certain to come up at a congressional hearing on the U.S. response to Ebola Thursday afternoon. Seven of the panel’s 14 Republicans say it’s time for the administration to at least consider restricting the flow of people from West Africa to the U.S., and House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday afternoon that a temporary travel ban, “is something that the president should absolutely consider” in response to the crisis.

A second US nurse who treated Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan has tested positive for the disease, raising concerns that more of the dozens of hospital staffers involved in Duncan’s care may come down with the virus. Further concerns were raised after it emerged that the sickened nurse took a commercial flight the night before she was diagnosed. Health officials are now assessing the flight’s 132 passengers for any signs of illness, though the likelihood of transmission at that time was remote. More… Discuss
Vulnerabilities in Ebola planning
The infection of two Dallas health care workers has highlighted vulnerabilities in the CDC’s protocols for those dealing with Ebola patients. The current protocol allows for potential skin exposure of caregivers. The CDC is revising those guidelines and will likely make them more similar to those used in biological containment facilities.

In many sports, athletes caught doping are slapped with suspensions, presumably to both penalize them and allow time for the effects of the drugs to wear off. However, new research suggests that these athletes could still be benefitting from past use of performance-e nhancing drugs long after they have been allowed to return to competition. Some of the physiological changes triggered by anabolic steroid use appear to persist for decades, giving those who have used such drugs a long-term, perhaps even lifelong, advantage over their competitors.

this pressed-for your informantion: Pitt researcher finds pathway that leads to multiple myeloma growth – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
When stressed cells go into survival mode and try repairing themselves, bad things can happen. One impact is a biological pathway that can support cancer and promote its progression.
This is a story about one such pathway in multiple myeloma, the most devastating tumor-bone disease.
The associate professor of dental medicine, with a doctoral degree in oral health sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, is an endodontist, or root-canal specialist. Her research is what excited the NIH.
“We’ve identified a novel pathway and the role of that pathway in modulating the bone-marrow environment on a microenvironment level in support of multiple myeloma,” Ms. Ouyang said…
Health screenings reveal that eight infants have tested positive for tuberculosis following the discovery that a nurse’s assistant infected with TB worked at an El Paso hospital’s nursery.
El Paso Public Health Director Robert Resendes said Thursday that of the eight, five babies had been vaccinated previously against TB and their results may be false positives. Preventive medical treatments have been offered for all eight.
None of the babies have active TB, the deadly and contagious form of the disease.
Health authorities also raised to 860 the number of infants possibly exposed at Providence Memorial Hospital. The hospital says it passed the first inspection by federal health authorities and inspectors will return in December.

DALLAS (AP) — A Texas health care worker who was in full protective gear when they provided hospital care for an Ebola patient who later died has tested positive for the virus and is in stable condition, health officials said Sunday. If the preliminary diagnosis is confirmed, it would be the first known case of the disease being contracted or transmitted in the U.S.
Dr. Daniel Varga, of the Texas Health Resources, said during a news conference Sunday that the worker wore a gown, gloves, mask and shield when they provided care to Thomas Eric Duncan during his second visit to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Varga did not identify the worker and says the family of the worker has “requested total privacy.”

In 1994, North Korea signed the “Agreed Framework,” consenting to dismantle its nuclear facilities, but it covertly continued to pursue nuclear technology. On October 3, 2006, North Korea announced its intention to detonate a nuclear device. The test was conducted six days later, but its explosive force was so small that many question whether the test was truly successful. After the UN Security Council levied sanctions on October 14, how did North Korean president Kim Jong Il allegedly respond? More… Discuss

MONROVIA, Liberia (CBSDFW/AP) – The Liberian man infected with Ebola who brought the disease to the United States will be prosecuted when he returns home for lying on his airport screening questionnaire, Liberian authorities said Thursday.
With an Ebola epidemic raging in West Africa, passengers leaving Liberia are being screened for fever and are asked if they have had contact with anyone infected.
On the form obtained by The Associated Press and confirmed by a government official, Thomas Eric Duncan answered “no” to questions about whether he had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of someone who had died in an area affected by Ebola.
Duncan left for the U.S. on Sept. 19 to visit family. After passing through Washington D.C. he arrived in Dallas
Duncan was diagnosed with the disease on Sept. 30 after contracting it in his native Liberia, where Ebola has infected about 7,500 people, killing half. He had come to the country to marry his girlfriend, Louise Troh, who is now being quarantined and has not yet shown symptoms of the disease.
“It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 am,” Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital said in a statement today.
Sept. 26, after doctors failed to diagnose him with Ebola. He was brought back to the hospital in an ambulance two days later.

When confronted by police, the shop owner admitted to having laced his noodles with the banned substance. More… Discuss
The longstanding debate about the advisability of replacing sugar in one’s diet with artificial sweeteners just got a little more complicated. Researchers found that the no-calorie sugar substitutes, meant to help keep things like weight and blood sugar levels in check, alter the balance of gut microbes linked to metabolic diseases like diabetes and may lead, or contribute, to elevated blood sugar levels. The research focused on three common artificial sweeteners: saccharin, sucralose, and aspartame. More… Discuss

Childhood obesity is on the rise, but parents’ ability to discern whether their children are overweight is not keeping pace. Parents of overweight and obese youngsters are increasingly identifying their children as “about the right weight,” a problem because they are then less likely to take steps to foster healthy behaviors in their kids. The issue is compounded by the fact that many overweight and obese children underestimate their weight problems and are therefore less likely to push themselves to get healthy. More… Discuss
