How Cells Sense Oxygen Levels: Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
"The Nobel Assembly Caroline Skins that has today decided to ward the two thousand Nineteen Nobel Prize in physiology discoveries of how south sounds and adapt to oxygen availability. Thomas Perlman Secretary of the Nobel Assembly shortly after five thirty am eastern time Greg Samantha was born in Nineteen fifty six in New York he performed his prize winning studies at Johns skains university in Baltimore where is still active Sir Peter Ratcliffe was born in Nineteen fifty four in Lancashire you're in the UK he performed his prize winning studies at Oxford University and he's continuing to do his research soared university and he's also at Francis Crick Institute in London and William Calin born in Nineteen fifty seven in work he performed his price winning studies at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston we're still active in his own lab yeah I will not turn to professor Roundell Johnson a member of the Nobel Assembly who will describe some detail and background binder works so please ramble this year's Nobel prize is awarded for determining how oxygen levels are sensed by cells oxygen is essential for life and is used by virtually all animal cells in order to convert food to usable energy however the amount of engine available to cells tissues animals themselves can vary greatly this prize is for three physician scientists who found them switch that regulates how our cells adapt when oxygen levels drop the most fundamental use of oxygen by the cell is to convert food to usable energy just as a candle needs the right amount of oxygen to burn cleanly cells need to adjust their metabolic rates based on how much oxygen they have available to them this allows each cell and indeed our bodies to efficiently and safely burn fuel so as to create heat do work and build new tissues cells and tissues are constantly experiencing changes in oxygen availability as an embryo grows develops as muscles work the oxygen available changes as the tissues themselves change cells need a way to adjust to the amount of oxygen they have while still doing their important jobs sometimes oxygen levels change across the entire body such as when we high altitudes and sometimes they change and very small parts of our bodies such as when we get a wound that interrupts the local blood supply this triggers adaptive process called the hypoxia response which in turn can induce processes in the body as diverse as new blood vessel formation or genesis new red blood cell formation or rith rope and metabolic adaptations of cells including by Colossus before things get too complicated I want to jump to an interview Randall. Johnson did after the Nobel announcements Johnson's research on the effects of low oxygen so he really knows is this stuff he spoke to an unidentified interviewer but based on the programs in past years I believe she was Swedish journalist Joanna rose this use your water in the discovery of cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability. What does this mean well it's basically a price that says in your cell if you're an animal cell you have to always have some level of oxygen almost all cells use it to do there pollick processes and basically it is just like a candle burning or any other kind of furnace or engine you are burning things in order to make heats in order to make Gede and that's really what we do of course we need oxygen or do those things the problem is cells inside three-dimensional structure like the body are just getting different amounts of oxygen can depend on different levels and blood flow can depend on the fact that the the tissue itself might be using a lot of oxygen at any given time my brain is probably using fair amount right now my heart because it's eating a bit faster and so that's maybe got sort of its using oxygen and if I'm lying down and sleeping and so the because the cell has very tightly regulated little furnace in it it has to adjust to these different levels of oxygen fine-tuned way and if it does badly it can even be fatal for the cell so this is really the prizes for this sort of almost like a reestablish or a thermostat for the oxygen levels a damper that you'd have on your furnace to let in more or less oxygen at any given time so it's just right the flame

Over processed foods add 500 calories to your diet every day
"Their new diet studies out this week and they add more evidence that when it comes to staying healthy. It may not be enough to just count. Those calories what you choose to eat really does matter in pairs Rb reports on what researchers learned when they tracked the diets and health of thousands of women over two decades when the women's health initiative study began back in the nineteen nineties about twenty thousand women were put on a diet. They were told to cut back on fatty foods such as red meat and full fat, dairy, and they were told to add in more plant based foods, here study, author Rowena Boesky of the Los Angeles biomedical research institute at harbor UCLA medical center, but we ask them women to eat more fruits vegetables, and grains, but also to reduce their total. Fat intake, two decades later, what he and his colleagues have found is that women who were put on this diet at twenty one percent lower risk of death from breast cancer. Compared to women who didn't change their diets. This is significant because this is the first intervention study at anytime targeting breast cancer, where reduction in deaths from breast cancer has been seeing this study adds to the evidence that what you eat can be an important driver of health, but it also raises new questions about exactly which changes the women in the study made that may have been most beneficial. Here's Jennifer Liga belt a medical oncologist at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, there's been a walk that we've learned in the time since the study started about healthy fat, and unhealthy fat at a time when we're told to eat, plenty of healthy fats sources such as KADO 's and olive oil. Was it really an overall reduction in fat during the study that worked in the women's favor? Or was it due to other factors such as all of the good, nutrients and fiber that come from eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole, grains, Schabowski says it's just not clear. We can't really separate out at the present time. Which component was important. But we have blood on all forty eight thousand women, and now we will be a number of analyses to see if we can dissect out which were the important components. So there's much more to learn now. One interesting point, the women in the study were not told to count calories or reduce calories, but overall, they did lose weight. We didn't target caloric intake reduction, but the women did reduce their weight by about three percents. I think it's a message of dietary moderation the signings fit with another new study out this week that evaluated the effects of an ultra process diet compared to minimally processed diet it to finds that an overall healthy diet containing plenty of fruits vegetables, and whole grains can help prevent weight gain Darya schmo, Zafar, Ian is dean of the Friedman school of nutrition at Tufts University. The effects are really consistent with a lot of research coming out, over the last decade that you can't judge a food by its calorie count. And when it comes to eating healthy the quality. And range of foods, you choose matter

Bone Building Needs Bit of Breakdown First
"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Karen Hopkin. Exercise builds muscle, but it also strengthens bones. Exactly how exercise boosts bone strength is a matter of debate and a subject of scientific scrutiny. Now, a new study in mice shows how a hormone secreted by active muscle cells triggers, bone remodeling, physical activity stimulates the release of multiple molecules from skeletal muscle take Iran, for example, this hormone named after the Greek messenger. Goddess iris is produced by running rodents and by us humans when we do high intensity Arabic training once it's generated iris and improves bone density and strength to find out how Bruce Spiegelman and his colleagues at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School took cultured bone cells and located the receptor to which Iran binds, this receptor protein is particularly abundant on cells called osteo sites. These cells of the master regulator of. Bone remodeling and the most abundant cell type in bone. What we found interesting in. This paper is the magnitude of the effects, we get in terms of iris and acting to stimulate osteo sites and preventing their death in culture. Also their ability to make a key protein sclera Sten under the stimulation of iris scores. Ten is a protein that actually stimulates the breakdown of bone that Iran, which builds bone would promote the production of sclera Ston which destroys it may seem counterintuitive but Spielman says that this bit of bone breakdown that signals the body to engage in some skeletal renovation the results appear in the journal cell boning up on the actions of Irishman could help us work out. How we can derive the most from our workouts and possibly keep our bones dense enough to keep us dancing in our dotage. And the new work identifying the receptor. Also allows us to really a much more easily identify. What are other target cell types for IRA Sinn with particular reference to neural cell types, where there is suggestive evidence by us and others that iris in may play a neuro protective effect in disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and a LS? Thanks for listening for scientific Americans, sixty seconds science. I'm Karen Hopkin.

"It's definitely a stressful situation for everyone involved in here to discuss as mayo clinic psychologist, Dr Sarah McCarthy. Welcome to the program. And welcome to mayo clinic, Dr maccarthy, thank you so much for having me. I'm thrilled to be here. Both Fred here and in Rochester, do you work somewhere before you came to mail? I did I actually was at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. So I did my fellowship there. And then spent seven years on faculty there. And what attracted you to Rochester. Actually a lot. The first time. I came to mayo. I was interviewing for a job that I told them I wasn't going to take and encourage me to come down. Anyway. And I was just so drawn by the people here and the work that's being done. And so when another position opened up in pediatric psychology, I actually jumped on the opportunity and relocated here. Danafarber. Great place to. Yes. Absolutely wonderful. I suspect your job can be pretty difficult at times. Yeah. It's so funny. When people ask me what I do. And I tell them that I work with pediatric oncology. They usually look at me like, I'm crazy. But. I have every day to work with just absolutely amazing children, and parents and siblings as well as providers, nurses, physicians child, life specialists, and pediatric cancer is difficult. And there are times that it can be really devastating, but at the heart of it, it's children. And so every day, I get to go to work, and I work with children and children are resilient and positive an absolutely incredible. And that's why I do what I do what does a typical day. So they're oftentimes isn't an additive, but many days, I will see outpatient consults in the morning. And so these are ninety minute slots for children and parents oftentimes dealing with medical illnesses. So not just on college. But other illnesses, well and the referred to me for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's a judgment to the news at the diagnosis. This is often a time for many. But especially pediatric cancer where families really struggle and research has shown that this is actually where distress for most families. That's the highest that they've heard those words your child has cancer. And oftentimes, they're just absolutely devastated and in shock, and so sometimes meet with me to process just what this means. I will sometimes meet with parents to talk with them about how best to tell the child about their cancer. What words to use? How do we explain treatment to them in one thing? We know is that it is so important to be honest with children about their diagnosis and about their treatment and by doing so and explaining their illness to them in a way, that's appropriate for their age. It actually is very helpful to prepare them for what's coming. And and this can be just a very powerful thing. And so how talk with sometimes families about that amounts of meat with children and families who are at the other end of the spectrum, and so may be approaching end of life and can help us locate some of those very difficult conversations. With the child's wishes what they understand and and supporting the parents and siblings. What is the importance or explain to me why you think it's important that a child be part of the decision making of their treatment. Why that is something that is so key. So you know, I think that it first of all it this is the child's body. And so what we know is that when children don't have information, they make up things that that's just how all of our minds work, and and that's especially true with children. And so if we don't tell children what's going on. Oftentimes, they will think this is so bad that they're not telling me, and they'll go to a situation, which is even worse than what the actual situation is. And so, you know by giving them information that's appropriate for their age. How we explain cancer to five year olds it's very different than how he would explain it to a seventeen year old, but giving them information that is appropriate for their age can actually really reducing diety because then they know what's going on. They know why they're coming into the hospital even explaining things like port access many children with. Cancer have to have some kind of central access either a porta-cath or a central line and with a catheter. Yes. So it's so many children with cancer have ports, and so these are actually placed underneath their skin. And so when they're not access they can do all the things that kids should be doing running around playing swimming things like that. And then when they are access access by cleaning it and putting needle and so simply explaining and showing a tout what that's gonna look like before it happens can be very important to them. We use things like medical play. We have mazing child life specialists who will put ports in stuffed animals dolls you name it they've done it. And so we do a lot of preparation with the kids, and that has been shown to actually really decreased airing throughout their treatment. When a child is going to be different from everybody else because they've got this thing going on. They lose their hair, whatever it might be. How do you help it kid get through that part? Yeah. Cancer diagnosis. So we talk about it again. I think the losing of the hair it's something that is I would say one of the most difficult things especially for parents and for teenage girls, but often. The younger kids sometimes aren't as bothered with it. But we definitely prepare them for it. And we give them a lot of choice. I recommend giving on a lot of choice about you know, how this is going to look. And so for some kids, they are not at all interested in cutting their hair before, and it's not until their hair is really coming out. And oftentimes it's once it starts getting in their food that that's when they want it gone. But really not for letting the child shoes, you know, when if and when they want the haircuts, and so then also talking to them about it. So if the kids are in school, then talking about, you know, if someone says something to you, what do you think you're going to say, and so we do some role playing and brainstorming about what they can say. And so then when they go into that situation, they're more prepared. Do you meet with the with the child and the parents together or sometimes individually, sometimes just the parents and then the kid I it's all combination. So it really depends, but the family needs so initially I often China meet with everybody together just to get a sense of you know, who they are as a family. With the when I meet with the kid a lot of my job, especially at the beginning. It's really just getting to know them, and and getting to know them beyond. There are a lot more than just that cancer diagnosis. And so, you know, some of us to sit in on one of my first few sessions, it looks like I'm just talking with younger kids, we do a lot of playing, but what I'm really doing is starting to establish a relationship with them and same thing with the parents that I'm getting to know the parents getting to know this family what that allows me to do is. Then if and when my services are needed when the crisis comes up or an issue comes up, we have a relationship to took off of and so I really think that this with children with serious medical illnesses. Whether it's cancer or something else, I think it it really is so important to be able to have that time to get to know the families before craziest come up because we're just I'm able to provide much better services, if I know them, and when they know me siblings as well. Yes. And I think siblings are often. A little bit forgotten about. And that's what they tell us how they feel that you know, when a child is diagnosed with cancer all attention goes to that child and family routines are so disruptive oftentimes for children at at least at the beginning of cancer treatment. There's a prolonged hospital stay, and so they might actually be physically separated from the child with cancer and their and their parents so siblings are at a definite risk for having difficulty. And so not only do I meet with siblings. I also when I when I meet with families, initially, I always try to talk about prepare parents for what could happen and give them a heads up. It also do some anticipatory guidance around ways to help facilitate the siblings adjustment. Even as we're just getting started with the treatment process can be very difficult on marriage too. Yeah. Yeah. Unfortunately, we do see higher rates of divorce in families who have experienced a serious medical unless there. Child, and it is so extraordinarily stressful. I mean, it really this is like the one of the most stressful things a parent will ever have to have to deal with people handle stress differently. And so again, I think that's an issue that I I try to talk with parents about up front of just, you know, how do you cope with stress has their partner cope with stress, you know, and how can we continue to support each of you, and how can you continue to support each other during this because one of the things that we know that child's adjustment to their onus has really greatly influenced. For the more. We can do for the parents end up. Laura, you're talking about the emotional toll childhood cancer has on families. With mayo clinic psychologist Dr Sarah McCarthy McCarthy, thanks so much. We're going to take a short break when we come back here from another member of a pediatric cancer care teams learned about.

"My name's dot support each. And I'm from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. So what we sought to do with this abstract was to inform people about on the one hand the success of clinical trials in terms of patient, selection, efficacy and safety. But then look to a real world comparison of what we actually had reported in the community setting for durations of treatment and outcomes for combinations. Given in accordance with clinical trials that led to their approval, the real differences that will most striking were in the fan that tolerability of treatment is absolutely essential. Because what we're seeing shortage rations of therapy for certain agents compared to others and just to use some examples from the analysis combinations. Incorporate? Eating poem. I'd for example, proved for gerbil, and, you know, duration of therapy was prolonged and outcomes very consistent with the data published. We sold the same for example. So for the anti bodies where things sort of started to differentiate was actually in the protozoan at a space, and what we saw there was for example. Although obviously exams relatively new terms of approval the use of an oral proteome inhibitor once a week. Clearly, the durations of therapy will convince row with what we had seen in the trials perhaps somewhat surprising, some of the other drugs in this space were less prolonged in terms of the jury of treatment and pass the most striking one was fills amid more actually the jurisdiction of USA was shorter than was in the trials. And obviously, we're trying to understand those reasons, and I think that speaking specifically to fill some very potent, very active. We've got great data at this meeting from the sponsor showing survival benefits. So it didn't emphasizes the importance of being able. To deliver these drugs for prolonged period. Because clearly if you're gonna survival benefit it's worth the push. What it also tells us though, is we have to be very aware of the side effect profiles and beware. How to manage them? And I think in that vein or a number of important posters here to address all of those issues in a variety of settings and one of them. Interesting was one of the concerns about Phil's move is cardiac. Toxicity and is very nice poster from the group at Vanderbilt showing that yes, this is real, you know, there is really a cardiovascular toxicity to the drug the good news from their analysis with kaffa monitoring, it's manageable. And so I think that the takeaway from fills move as an example was if you manage side effects, you know, you can continues we have to be aware of the fact in clinical trials that we do Kathleen select patients, and what happens in terms of regulatory approval. And that context also means we need to be aware of the fact that you know, will move these drugs to the real world, then may be differences and. That I think behold us is research community to make sure that provide as a well educated in side effect management in how best optimized jurisdiction of care because what we do know is a guiding principle in Milo is that continuous therapy Mattis, you can find links in the show notes on novel talk.

I'm an associate professor at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Harvard Medical School moss in Massachusetts, and the allergen is an immune determinant. So it's a peptide that can be recognized by immune cells. That originates because of a mutation in DNA, and what happens is if you have a mutation and DNA that alteration can result in a change in amino acid, and that amino acid in turn can change the way that immune cell can recognize a tumor cell Neo. Antigens have been always conceptualized as ideal cancer antigens because there are only present on tumor cells and not on normal cell. So if you target them, they should only hit tumor and not have collateral damage against normal tissue. So why isn't you antigen so appealing one it's exquisitely tumor specific the second is that it's highly immune genyk, just like any of those other antigens that we encounter in our external environment that we are hardwired to protect ourselves against the idea of targeting mutations is nothing.
