Teasing Vaccines From Tobacco (Notes work by ASU, VAXX)
02/24/2010 | Wall Street Journal | Gautam Naik
The U.S. Department of Defense, caught off guard by the swift spread of the H1N1 flu virus last year and delays in producing a vaccine, is backing an unusual plan to use tobacco plants to make the vaccine. Flu vaccines are typically grown in chicken eggs. Although the technique is slow and expensive, vaccine makers have done little to improve on this reliable method for more than 60 years. The urgent need for a better way became apparent last year.

No Im not dead; I've just been really busy. Took a trip to Garden Grove, CA with the Rivera clan. It was a chance to get a way from the desert for a coupe of days.
School is progressing nicely and I now know exactly what classes I need to graduate next year. Work is also going well, and I feel settled. I have a decent summer internship lined up with Innexus, and am looking forward to being back in a wet lab setting.
My green card status has finally moved up; It has changed from a 7 year wait to them giving me a decision or a request for an interview within 60 days! This is by far the best news of the year...so far...

But that hasn't deterred Ray Woosley, CEO of the C-PATH Institute, whose sole mission is to foster private-public cooperation to fulfill CPI's grand vision. Woosley is a glass-half-full realist and C-PATH is starting to justify his steady confidence.

[Source: TGen] - Researchers for TGen Clinical Research Services at Scottsdale Healthcare (TCRS) have identified a way to predict which patients with small-cell lung cancer may be resistant to first-line chemotherapy.
The study, Tumor MicroRNA Biomarkers Associated with De Novo Chemoresistance in Small Cell Lung Cancer, will be presented today in San Diego at a joint conference of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC).
This breakthrough is critical since patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) often do not get a second chance at therapies to combat this aggressive type of cancer.
