Oncotarget involves all pathways, cellular and molecules functions in aging and cancer, lymphocytes, neurons, atherosclerosis, microbes and cancer cells in an individual. It involves extensive research and applications of the results acquired.It is an international, journal that is peer reviewed which focuses on the pathological basis of cancers and potential patients for treatment and therapy protocols engaged to manage and control cancer patients. The journal focuses on therapeutic protocols and focuses on the impact of patient’s perspectives such as satisfaction, quality of life and adherence. This journal dives deep the existing and new therapies that improve the patient’s outcomes and overall the patients’ health care.
Oncotarget has free access and publishes it papers weekly and can be printed to the viewers on special demand. The journal’s main purpose is to make scientific results of diseases known and readily available for those in need. To maximize the impact of research through precise reviews, the journal allows exceptional discoveries to be widely viewed. To make clinical science and basic applications help fight diseases. To eliminate boundaries between specialties.Under the leadership of scientists Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov, the journal helps researchers contribute to development in science. The journal’s main goal is to live a life without diseases. Oncotarget has led to the launch of sections beyond oncology.Gastric cancer is the third most common lead of death in women and men all over the world. The prognosis of this cancer is irreversible giving patients less than a year to live. This has led to research to know new therapeutic targets of gastric cancer patients.
Tyrosine kinase c-MET, a receptor, is encoded by a protein known as the MET Proto-oncogene. In gastric cancer, these activations of MET have contributed to gene amplification leading to regrowth of the body cells that cancer has eaten away.Our aim is to investigate the MET application in other genetically altered diseases and gastric cancer. The MET application was assessed by initial screen test of the patient followed by FISH analysis obtained from the surgery. The effects of the treatment are also measured to check on the changes that it makes for the patient.As a member of the receptor tyrosine kinase family, c-MET plays a big role in tumor survival, growth metastasis, and angiogenesis. Its overexpression in gene application occurs in a significant position of gastric cancers.
Arthur, Marila Lima’s baby, is one of the many babies born with a condition known as microcephaly. It is a birth defect that has been found to have a link with the Zika virus, which was discovered in Brazil. Although the relationship has not been quite proven, International and Brazilian doctors think there’s a connection between both.
Lima was infected with the mosquito-born virus as she carried her baby in the womb. That time, there wasn’t much information about the virus, and her doctors assured her that there was nothing to worry. When she went for prenatal check up, the problem became more evident with the fetus. After giving birth, her son was noted to have very small head. Severe brain damage is proven to affect all aspects of the development of a child, including mental and physical.
Arthur doesn’t suckle as normal babies and he is hard and fretful to soothe. He has problems from the eyes to the hip and bones in both his arms and legs. Although Lima enjoys huge support of friends, family and her husband, she still believes that the government is not doing much about the babies as well as the parents. She also says that she puts all the blame to the government for her plight, as she believes that authorities have neglected their efforts in eradication, something that has largely contributed to more spread of the Zika virus.
Zika virus did not arrive in Brazil long. It has been about a year according to dino.com since it was realized in Latin America, but the country has reported not less than 1 million cases. The virus has also spread to more countries. In fact, countries like the United States warned pregnant mothers against travelling to these countries, including Brazil. To control the situation and try put a stop at the virus; Brazil has now started to fund research to help establish a vaccine for the Zika virus. The country has also sent drones to the fields to track down any stagnant waters, as well as sending the army into various cities to offer manpower.
Dr. Sergio Cortes Discusses Zika Virus
According to National Public Radio, Zika virus was first discovered in the 40s in various African countries such as Tanzania, Sierra Leon and Uganda. Over the years it spread throughout Asia to places like Thailand and India. He continues and says that the virus again resurfaced and continued to spread in 2015, reaching Latin American countries, which include Colombia, Mexico and Brazil. This lead to the World Health Organization to issue warnings on the disease’s dangers and the possible consequences and impacts it can generate.
Dr. Sergio also teaches people to know about the symptoms of Zika virus as opposed to those of Dengue. He says that, although both are characterized by symptoms such as red spots appearing on the skin, body aches and high fever, Zika virus is associated with microcephaly , a factor that is under research.
