Re: Progressive stage

Let me in the trial and don't count me in results if I do not make good progress. What you're asking is not possible. That's called experimenter bias and careers have been lost due to that very thing. If it becomes known that a researcher selectively eliminated parts of their data set in order for ...

Re: MS/Infection

Do you want to know why Stratton, Sriram and David refer to "A small subset"? It is because of a need to actually get into print in the first place. David did a small study of local people he treated who he saw regularly: Seven out of ten people responded to treatment, two out of ten were doubtful ...

Re: Tovaxin (was 'MS/infection')

... the much anticipated tovaxin has been tried on something like 15 people! and only half of them benefitted! Have you got a link for this? I have only read of much higher results. From one of my earlier posts ... During the interview, David McWilliams indicates that they are obtaining a 90% reduc...

Re: Autoreactive T-Cell Generation (hypothesis)

I wonder how it's progressed in the time since. You could always try searching for articles by the same group of researchers. Another option is to use a citation index to search for articles which have referenced this one. Note that your local library may have access to a citation index, if not, th...

Re: P53

Thanks for those links. It's good to hear that you found those slides helpful in understanding p53. Here's some more general information on p53 from another biochem supplier and this page has a link to an interactive p53 pathway diagram though I admit the last one is a bit overwhelming. NHE

Re: Definitions

I have heard of only one person, so far with significant benefits from Tovaxin. The phase IB/IIA study with Tovaxin was rather small if I remember correctly, perhaps 15 or so patients. This might explain the apparent lack of people jumping up and down waving their arms about touting its benefit. Fo...

In general, p53 is a signaling protein which plays a role in stimulating apoptosis which is programmed cell death. Here are a couple of links to research slides which briefly highlight the role that p53 plays in apoptosis. Note that lines in the diagrams that have arrow heads indicate a stimulatory ...
