Today is #RareDiseaseDay 2017! Today, with events taking place in over 90 countries all around the world, we hope to raise more awareness than ever for rare diseases! With the theme of research, and the slogan, 'With research, the possibilities are limitless', #RareDiseaseDay 2017 is an opportunity to call on all researchers, universities, students, companies, policymakers and clinicians to do more research and to make them aware of the importance of research for the rare disease community. This year's Rare Disease Day video, which has been viewed over a hundred thousand times and translated into over 30 languages, draws a parallel with a routine that many of us go through multiple times a day - searching for an answer on the internet. The video highlights how isolating it is when you search on the internet but receive the response 'your search had no results'. It also highlights the hope and promise that comes with additional research into rare diseases, something that must be continuously strived for. You are still able to participate in raising awareness of the day and be part of the change, by sharing the video, the poster, or any Rare Disease Day material on your Facebook, Twitter or other social media platforms. This year, on the tenth edition of the day, Rare Disease Day events will be held for the first time in four African nations, Botswana, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan. Events will also be held for the first time in Saint Pierre and Miquelon.
http://www.alltrials.net/2014/guest-post-people-with-rare-diseases-need-results-from-all-trial/ Guest Post: People with rare diseases need results from all trials 7th April 2014 By Rob Pleticha is the Online Community Manager of RareConnect.org, a EURORDIS project This is a personal opinion The International Rare Diseases Research Consortium plan to have 200 new rare diseases therapies by year 2020. In Europe a disease or disorder is defined as rare when it affects fewer than 1 in 2000 citizens.(1) Researchers studying rare diseases have difficulty gathering a sufficient number of people to join clinical trials in order to reach statistically significant results that can impact treatment. Clinical trial transparency and sharing of clinical trial data is fundamental in advancing rare disease research.
Curcumin acts as anti-tumorigenic and hormone-suppressive agent in murine and human pituitary tumour cells in vitro and in vivo http://erc.endocrinology-journals.org/content/16/4/1339.full Also Growth suppression of mouse pituitary corticotroph tumor AtT20 cells by curcumin: a model for treating Cushing's disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20405005 And Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) inhibits cell proliferation, induces apoptosis, and decreases hormone levels and secretion in pituitary tumor cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18450960 After eating curry in my eggs and tuna every chance I get I've noticed a difference in certain things. I know that there is evidence to suggest curcumin is anti carcinogenic and anti inflammatory and I attribute the changes to the anti inflammatory effect. But I still got curious....so I decided to look up turmeric/curcumin and pituitary tumors and this is what I found. Just thought it was interesting.
