Heavy episode of the simpsons are namesake and our patron saint our patron saint. our telephone. Number say is interesting in this podcast. Dr nick rivera That we are discussing a homer's triple bypass the season four episode. Which is eleven to the best of our recollection. It's the most dr nick. Heavy one yes. And we are joined once again by dr greg winter. Hi everybody he got a time. That was a really Balance a great doctor neck. I i'm okay. i'm okay in the times of kovin. Yeah we are once again recording semi remotely because of everything being garbage jackson. I know why you chose this episode. Anyone who listens to this podcast knows why you chose this episode but jackson. Why did you choose this episode. Because there's a lot of doctrine. Nick also are namesake is higher everybody which is strongly implying that we really like the simpsons. Heck if you've looked at our logo we use the simpsons fond it feels like there's some copyright infringement a little bit but you know. I really liked dr. Nick i think he's. He's my favorite character in the simpsons. I have like a drawing behind me. I know this is an audio podcast. It's great for me to describe. What's around me. Dr nick holding a textbook. So i really like dr nick and this is a great episode to discuss. How bad of a doctor. He is but also some fun. Medical stuff right The most unrealistic aspect of this episode is the fact that this triple bypass only cost thirty thousand dollars. Four hundred thousand dollars. Sorry one twenty nine.

Kristen's purse, Greg found three different types of drugs in an angry Email. Kristen attempt to explain away each of the pills. He found as something innocent, she accused Greg of violating her trust by searching through reverse in even alleged she wanted great define the pills to prove a point that he doesn't trust her. On October twenty. Fifth, two thousand Christian celebrated her twenty four th birthday the night before Dr Robertson hit roses and chop it in her desk perhaps has been gave her two dozen red roses. Christon running low on math and also the funds to obtain. It began looking into alternate sources to maintain her daily habit that day at work. She made several web searches on how to synthesize meth. That evening. She logged onto Greg's computer at home and conducted searches on quote, making crystal Matt easy, unquote. That same evening Dr Robertson road Kristen, a two and a half page letter urging her to make a lifelong commitment to him and hinting. He would leave her and move on. If she didn't act. Now. The whole situation was playing out like a soap opera. On the Friday before Greg's death Christian became obsessed with attaining more meth. She continued web searches for making the drug and desperation. She took an extended lunch crossed over the border and met a local taxi driver in Tijuana instantly became her drug dealer. You gave her his card and told her in the future to call him directly, and he wouldn't beat her at the bridge with drugs. On Thursday, November second, Kristen, alleges. She was at home reading a love letter from Dr Robertson when Greg Qatar after he wrestled the letter out of her hands and read it, he then accused Kristen of being on drugs. Again, she stated quote, he almost struck me. He read the letter, wasn't furious, feared by it and was storming around unquote. Kristen, grab the letter and attempted to shred it. And according to Kristen, Greg snatched it from the shredder and attempted to tape it back together. At what point Greg allegedly became so incensed that he threatened to take a letter to the medical examiner in reveal her fare along with her drug relapse. The next day Kristen stopped smoking meth in the event that Greg winter boss, and she was asked to take a drug test. She then went to Dr Robertson's office and told him about Greg's ultimatum. That evening Kristen's parents took Greg and Kristen out to dinner for Greg's upcoming twenty seventh birthday and Kristen's twenty four th birthday. The raw soms would later say that Greg was acting odd that night. Kristen's mom tried to talk into leaving with them that night, but unbeknownst to her parents, Kristen had to plant of her own. Greg threat to expose her affair and drug relapse has scared her. Meanwhile, Greg was at home tending hangover from the drinks. His wife had given him the night before during a phone call that morning with his brother. Bertrand, he complained feeling tired and hung over this phone call.

"And was that because we need change change of leadership, what's wrong with the way the state's going now, bankrupt though the pension funds are not funded. That's the palm. Now you brought up a very controversial point. Gina Raimondo and what she did with the pensions. Is that something that still bothers you? That's still allows me and people thought I walk with that have pensions that have been cut. That's wrong back when Gina Raimondo was state treasurer and Rhode Island was bleeding cash. She cut cost of living increases for Rhode Island's pension system. And on that issue memories are long, but for twenty five year old, Amanda Mirka Dante is also breaking. Sweat on her morning, walk the choices clear. I'm a big Gina fan. I just like that the economy has gotten better with her. We can actually see results. She cares about schools. Would you think she deserves the credit for the economy? I think she's done a lot in. I would give her a good deal of the credit. The question is how many people will agree with her in November for here. Now I'm Peter O'Dowd. Talks between the UK and the European Union broke up yesterday without a deal. Just a few days before a key summit on Brexit. The Irish border remains the key stumbling block norther. Ireland is part of the UK. The Republic of Ireland is not. So there's concern that there will be a hard border between the two when the UK is no longer part of the e u border issues could also affect collaborations between scientific researchers in the UK and the EU and joining us now to talk about that is professor Mark Wolpert who is chief executive of UK research and innovation. That's the government agency that oversees some nine billion dollars in public funding for research and innovation professor while ports, sir, wellpoint welcome to here. Now, thank you, empties. In how concerned are you about Brexit and the impact of Brexit on research? What I mean, the first thing to say is that research and innovation is a worldwide activity. One of the reasons I'm here is that we have many, many collaborations with the United States, but indeed countries around the world. But of course, Europe is an extra. Henry important partner. We have very many scientific and innovation research innovation partnerships across Europe, and those will continue, but will it be more difficult for researchers from mainland Europe to work with researchers in the UK after Brexit? Well, I mean the ulcers. The shouldn't be. The government has indicated that mobility for the sort of people that are working in recession, invasion will remain possible, but a unit is a big disruptive process and. Sounds division is any part of it. It depends on an overall deal being done. What are your concerns right now? My main concerns about people at the end of the day UK recession, innovation is an extraordinary international activity. You go to any university, you go to any laboratory in the UK, and you will find people from all over the world including very many people from Europe. Because of course, geographically it is our closest partner. And so that is really important. That continues because it's in the same United States. Are you in the United States in part because you wanna do more collaboration with people in the United States, especially after Brexit? It's not simply about a compensation. No, we hit because actually the the truth is that the US is number one international partner. So we're building on extremely strong and deep relationships. The Nobel prize for chemistry. Had a British scientists, Greg winter, bark biology to American scientists working in the same area. And in fact the it's the twelfth Nobel prize for research done in the department of biology since nineteen fifties quite extraordinary record. So where are the UK and the US collaborating right now in an enormous number of areas. So many scientists have sort of foam Buffum up collaborations, but just exactly year ago that the fest ever UK US hunts and technology agreement was signed, and there are some very important, big international projects. So the deep underground neutrino experiments. We are the major international collaborates on that. We're working together onto standing what's going on in Antarctic onto a glacier called the weights, glacier and in the Allston humanities as an important collaboration between autzen administers such come so and the Smithsonian and in fact, just yesterday morning, I was at a.

"Mascot is deciding for itself there is a tournament manager which is kind of application which is running on our on bought software in which decides when the instruments are turned on for example, or if the mobility has to be activated. And if I'm right when we're talking mascot has been there for about twelve or thirteen hours. So I guess it's working time is almost over if based on the estimation, which we have from our experience and our test, then we. Expect roughly sixteen hours of operation, but I have to admit that. Although I'm very tired. I would be happy to stay far more hours. Well, he's absolutely brilliant. When you get this arms back. We'll definitely going to talk to you again. Thank you so much for talking to an action. Thank you throw me ho of the German, aerospace centre, finally. That time of year when scientists wonder whether they'll get that call from Stockholm saying that their work has been marked above all others is worthy of a Nobel. Find selection came up this week, including the first woman to get the call from the physics committee in fifty five years before that for the medicine prize, James Allison and Tatsuko hun-jo for their discoveries that lead to immunotherapy for cancer home. People tell me that they have recovered from grave illness and can healthy, thanks to my treatment methods. And that to me that about everything else makes me realize that my research has been truly meaningful, and it makes me this morning when the committee member, call me Nobel, you know, he said, this is the first time we've ever given on award for any kind of cancer therapy. So yeah. Well, good that should give people James Allison on the BBC early this week getting the chance to explain his groundbreaking work. The last thirty years fed figure out how T-cells work, you know, the soldiers immune system, we figured out mid nineties or two signals required to get started one antigen receptor signal just Cadillac ignition. Switch on a car another molecule kind of like the gas pedal, but ten mid-nineties we show them another. You'll actually served as the break stop at immune response before it can damage normal tissues. So I had the idea that, you know, maybe this break was stopping immune responses before they could totally eliminate cancers. And if we just disabled the brakes temporarily we conducted teachers keep going for as long as they needed to completely eliminate tumors two thousand one. Succeeded in getting the first phase one clinical trial. Their objective response is the very first trial. Of course, we didn't notice time, but one of the people in that trial. They got a single treatment is still alive. Eighteen years later, I'm joined by James Gallagher, BBC health and science correspondent James immunotherapy really is a big game changer in cancer treatment. It absolutely is. If you go back near even decade, or so you had surgery you had radiotherapy had drugs that talked to the cancer. Immunotherapy is now the fourth pillar of cancer treatment, and it is being used in hostels all around the world down. Now. What's interesting about this price is you can talk about the applications of it. But it goes back some very pure science. It does it comes down to how the immune system works. And if you think about your immune system, we all think which role in attacking infections virus or bacterium notes in the wrong place. But it also make sure that our own cells are doing what they're supposed to be doing. And if they start going. Rogue then it kills them off. Now, how does it do that? Because he needs to have checks and balances, and it needs to have ways of going with this is a danger. I need to be more aggressive, but also ways of going, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Let's calm everything down. Everything's okay here. And James Allison talked a nations about brakes and acceleration and taking off the break was the phrase used exactly. So what Kansas do is they find a way of tapping into those breaks, they find ways of turning off the immune system. Therefore, they become practically invisible and can proliferate and become a foreign Chima. Now, there are a couple of ways they do that. So more than shake my hand on a chemical level role. And that is how immune cells and other cells communicate with each other. They from chemical handshakes one of these chemicals ACT LA four because I know you love getting right? And that's the one Allison discovered. I and what that does is it what's known as immune checkpoint, and it disables the immune Salva t Selva comes along to kill us out. And if the cancer has it, then it's. Visible and continues to grow. What he discovered was. If you broke that with an immune checkpoint inhibitor, then that stops the disabling if he needs system, and it can keep on killing the cancer. So that's the kind of Greece or a blocker to stop the handshake. Exactly. Just imagine that we going Tajik and certainly app producer fi get in the middle of it goes. Fee is a cancer drug, and it can be applied in a whole range of cancers. The big work so far has been on things like melanoma and lung cancer. And the reason it started there is because they're so heavily mutated because they're exposed to things like smoking or UV damage, they they become very visible to the immune system normally. But yet it's being investigated everywhere. Now, what's very interesting for me is the chemistry prize. This year comes in two parts, one of which again is to do with the immune system and cancers. Yes, welcome to the funky world of monoclonal antibodies. The price hasn't been one for monoclonal antibodies. Put a better way of finding the ones that work. So an antibody is something that binds to a protein on the surface of a Sal. And that's how he started drawing the rest of the immune system. Think of them as like missiles fight off by the system, you can make them in the lab, and then they can have a medical role to if you tip them inside patient now, how do you find the right antibody that works, and that's what the prize is being awarded for this way of creating a huge array of antibodies, and then fishing the right ones that hit the target that you want it to hit and then refining that process. So you get a really good match between the antibody and your target James Gallagher vanquished ram, a Christian Krishnan, who's president of the Royal Society, and is himself a Nobel laureate works at the laboratory for molecular. Biology where one of those laureates Greg winter did his research. So you know, him well van key? Yes. I should say I owe him a personal debt because his humanized therapeutic antibodies helped save both my wife's and my brother-in-law's lives because they both had lymphoma and were treated with monoclonal antibodies just brings it home. It's interesting because the loss of the work at your lab is done at the pure end of science. And this is a really interesting example, the work on these monoclonal antibodies really gets into medicine you have to give Greg a lot of credit for that though. Because when he realized the potential of what he was doing. He took active steps to commercialize it. He even set up companies. And of course, now, it's a multibillion dollar business. Six of the top ten selling drugs are monoclonal antibodies against a variety of diseases from arthritis to cancer to all sorts of things, and there it is interesting connection antibodies there the foot soldiers of the immune system, the medicine and physiology prize was about sort of boosting the body's own ability to do this. Yes. But this is one way a sort of Nicole intervention into the sort of supplementing the body's own abilities. If you like. So antibodies are proteins that the immune system naturally makes. And they have the ability to target a molecule and bind to it. And what grade figured out how to make these antibodies and make them in a humanize way. So when you inject them into humans, our body won't think of them as foreign and will accept them. And then he also figured out a way on how to improve the binding of the antibodies to its target, and the Nobel committee makes this important point that this is using eve Lucia Shima lab. Yes, exactly. So you have the target and you produce a whole library these antibodies, and then some of them will bind more tightly to your target. You choose them and then you amplify them. And then you go to the next round and choose the tighter of those. And so after a few rounds, you have an antibody that binds very tightly Tijuana says kind of designer immunity, I wouldn't say it's designer because you didn't assign anything you let the system choose. And that's. In fact, the opposite of design you're letting ever Lucien of selection. Choose what antibody to produce. I challenge the word design because the winner of the other half of the chemistry prize told this program two years ago that eve Lucien is the best designer of all time Francis. Arnold was on science in action actually twice in two thousand sixteen. I when she was the first woman to win the much thought millennium prize for her chemistry using so called directed. Evolution and the second time for experiments using it to incorporate the elephants silicon into living molecules, it's really very simple to direct the evolution of proteins because we can mutate the DNA that encodes a protein we can make thousands of versions of a protein and rapidly search through those to see which ones are better at something that we're interested and this whole idea that evolution can be used rapidly to solve human problems. I think is very. Powerful in especially for inventing, new chemistry. The physics prize like the chemistry. One comes into pass both to do.

The group of three times in the words of Royal Swedish Academy of sciences, a group harnessing the power of evolution with the Washington Post science reporter Bangguo Reno. Hey, ben. How are you? I'm doing fine. How are you today? Very well. Thank you. So what does it mean to harness the power of evolution? And what are these scientists do earned the Nobel prize? Well, that's a really great question. So what they did was they took the the power of evolution. And what that means is for three almost four billion years. Evolution has been tweaking chemicals through random mutations. What they were able to do with to take that that mechanism those new patients put them into the lab in a test tube and speed it up. So what is Arnold did? She's at Caltech, she took enzymes, which are these really helpful Poteen took the genes that express those jumbled up in bacteria and repeated over and over. Again to process that she called directed evolution. And she was able to create these really powerful impressive proteins thousands of times faster than you could do in the wild. Pretty amazing. We mentioned first scientists there. Dr winter also Francis Arnold, and George p Smith also whose at university of Missouri, also advanced here, how how would these advances apply to daily life for you? And I that's a really good question too. So what George Smith and Gregory winter did they were able to create Putin's called peptides and antibodies and what you can do with antibodies. You can use them as biologic drugs, its pharmaceuticals. So one of the ones that folks might be familiar with is to mirrow which the FDA approved in two thousand two for treatment of things like rheumatoid arthritis. So there's the pharmaceutical aspect what what Frances Arnold. Did. She was able to turn your bacteria. In germs things like E coli into into vehicles to produce biofuels or or synthetic ceremonies that might be able to scare away. Bugs that are going after your crops. So it's really a wide range from from pharmaceuticals to to natural industrial products to bio fuels. There are a lot of different applications for this technique. Certainly it sounds like this is a major breakthrough in a lot of ways. And of course, scientists always seemed to build off earlier research with these developments have any natural next steps four chemists going forward. That's a really great question to in terms of what might come next. They're still being applied to look for new avenues to refine the ability to really officially produce bio fuels, and for new pharmaceuticals is well, that's a great article and well worth reading thank you so much for sharing part of that with the spent that is Ben Guarino with the Washington Post, the science reporter there, you could check the story out.
