"Is a worldwide survey Every couple of years of kidney cancer patients and family members who are giving the care to ask about their concerns and another major project is world kidney cancer day martin. Could you tell us a little about those yet. This actually this Survey that indeed is a bi annual Has been discussed today. Among many other things the findings of an i should say because the survey has happened so last year at the end of the year said so now we are discussing the findings and Also discussing what is really the biggest finding and because there is a again this time ocean of information. It's very difficult to determine. What exactly is the biggest one. And unfortunately it's very difficult to throw people as seventy pages reports and just tell them to read it budding. It's it's ready providing a lot of information's and what is most fascinating is to observe and here differences between countries when we ask questions about the time spends to diagnosis. So the time between the first symptoms have occurred something worrisome and then Before the diagnosis was given it's very interesting to see the similarities and also differences between different countries and we already had a number of discussions that sometimes it's also culturally sensitive the way we are Giving back our perspective so in some cultures day to bring complains and to be unhappy about something is more common and in some countries is in some countries is your more agreements with what is happening. So sometimes we ask about your experience whether you understood or whether you are happy with the treatment sometimes we have to take this into consideration at. It's not only about the facts. What is happening on the way you feel. It also is is strongly Rooted in the culture that you're coming from so these surveys are really f- fascinating tool to see how shared experiences can also be have small differences between countries. And i think it's a yeah. It's a great invitation to Have a deep dive into the kidney concert. World overall and It's difficult to give view like five most important findings because they are exactly how this and then as to the world kidney concert day. That is happening in june this year. Topic is Feelings emotions so we have to talk about how do we feel and the wellbeing and the psychosocial status is definitely i think no surprise something incredibly important particularly in times of denic and i think that it's on one hand i would say that's you know this is such a huge mental burden of depends on ink that that the pandemic grubs upon all of us absolutely whether we are patients or not But i think this this year's topic off world kidney concert day is.

"Prevent cancer diets that are high in processed foods smoked foods like hot dogs and bacon although they taste really good are kidneys have to filter all the byproducts of of those highly processed foods and it can be said that those do contribute to a higher risk for for cancer. Scott that's pretty much. The answer i get when i asked about preventing heart disease or other health issues as well colorectal cancer and so a healthy diet is just a good thing all around. It is just a good thing. If there was one thing you can do diet and exercise to help your body and your overall health that is the one thing to do and you just get the bonus that it helps to to prevent cancer not smoking. I suppose which is the other thing that that is good for preventing lots of illnesses. That's right it's never too late. I see patients all the time with cancer. And i always tell them that is never too late. You know doctors. I think a lot of us are can be judgmental about patients who smoke. And it's my job to be really supportive of those patients and to be an advocate for them. I know not. Everybody is going to stop smoking. But i will always put my two cents in and be supportive and caring and loving about stopping smoking because i know how big of a deal it is for helping to stop the spread of cancer in helping to prevent cancer especially lung cancer but also kidney cancer as well. I agree scott..

"Would you use that technique. So that's called kreil ablation. That's the way where we can treat a kidney tumor through the skin and there's multiple different ways of doing it. You can freeze the tumor with kreil. Ablation you can do radiofrequency ablation. I think of it. As burning the tumor. But it's all done through his skin through the skin using a cat scanner again. Just like a biopsy to target and put a probe into the tumor and freeze that area. It's not suitable for all patients It might be that. The tumor is located in an area. That's really close to another organ. Say your liver or your intestines and you don't want that. That ice ball in their freezing the tumor to affect an injure that other organ in those cases. It's it's critical to actually go in and do surgery but tumors located on the backside of the kidney closer to your back. Those are a lot easier for an interventional radiologist to get in there and treated per continuously. The downside of treating it. That way is that there's a chance that it could come back for younger healthier patients who are able to undergo surgery. I will typically recommend surgery for them. Because i think it's a better way to completely cure the kidney but for older patients Patients who have smaller tumors Patients who aren't suitable for surgery. Maybe they have other medical problems diabetes heart failure things like that. You don't want to put them through the risk of taking them to surgery pre continues ablation is is really a great option and one other option that we didn't talk about yet is that not all tumors treated. Actually you know especially in recent years. We've found that really small tumors. That aren't growing very much and i'm talking tumors that are smaller than than about two to three centimeters smaller than an inch. As long as they're not growing very very fast you can watch them and you can watch them especially in older patients who have other risks for for mortality for for for death in a younger patient. You're not gonna do that as much because they've got a longer time left to live a much longer time to potentially have problems from that tumor so we patient you're going to treat them earlier and try to cure them of that when it's more feasible to do a partial effectively in spare as much of the kidney as possible. Gotta go back to something. You said a word. Use twice perky tenuously. Does that mean going through the skin and so does that just mean a radiologist using a smaller hole than you would to do surgery. Yes it's it's done through the skin and actually patients are awake with that that procedure. They might give them kind of twilight anesthesia. Kind of like you would get for a colonoscopy but most patients are awake and they will numb the skin and the muscle and then they they basically use a small needle so when we say per it just means through the skin and they use a small needle and put it through the skin through the muscle and into the kidney again using either ultrasound or or cat scan guidance what are the survival rates for kidney cancers like if you take all comers seventy. Five percent of patients will be.

Nonstick chemicals that stick around and detecting ear infections with smartphones
"Hello. This Welcomes the science podcast for may seventeenth two thousand nineteen. I'm Sarah Crespi this week show Meghan. Cantwell talks with science writer Saratova's about a nonstick chemical that sticks around in groundwater, and I talk with sham. Ota about his science translational medicine paper on using a smartphone. So listen for ear infections. I'm here with Sarah helps who wrote this week's feature to talk about how a small group of citizens in Rockford Michigan uncovered groundwater contamination in their town. And with the greater implications of this discovery are thinks much joining me. Sarah, thanks for having me, Meghan, of course. So could you talk about what prompted these citizens to investigate whether the shoe company factory in their town? Wolverine worldwide had contaminated their water in two thousand and nine wolverine worldwide announced that they would be closing their tannery, which had been inoperational for over a century. And the citizens were requesting the company I do a comprehensive environmental assessment of the property before the demolition. They knew from other tannery closures that Henry's often use hazardous substances when they're transforming rawhide. Hides into leather. And so they wanted to be sure that those same substances had not been sort of left behind on the tannery grounds. They were told that because there was no evidence of contamination on the property, that there was really essentially, no way require that testing be done. Meanwhile, will Verena had said there was no known contamination on the property. They asked the city to assess the site, but they did not want to instead they went and got the help of a scientist and launched their own investigation. What did they find from this, they uncovered helped uncover some of the highest levels of Pecos contamination in drinking water wells anywhere in the country and after many years of trying to get the company to test, the tannery grounds discovered that the tannery grounds are also contaminated with pitas, what exactly is p fasten? How long is this chemical been in production p bosses are a class of chemical? Nls known as per in Pali fluoro- alkyl substances. They were first synthesized by American chemists in the nineteen thirties and forties and their salient chemical feature is that they have a carbon fluorine bond, and that's among the strongest of all chemical bonds. It doesn't degrade naturally an environment that can be very useful for some products at lens durability. And also, these compounds can repel water and oil and stains, and so they're widely used in products, such as firefighting foams, nonstick, coatings, carpets, food, packaging, even dental floss some dental floss, it was discovered recently, there are over four thousand of these compounds. But the two most widely studied are called PF OA sometimes referred to as PICO and PFOS those two are no longer in production in the US. What are the impacts of these? Goes on human health were still looking into that. There was a massive epidemiological study called the seat health project, fat looked at people exposed in West Virginia and Ohio, they were exposed to fella, and their drinking water. And in that project what they found was a probable link to six conditions that included high cholesterol, all sort of colitis by ROY disease, stickler cancer, kidney, cancer, and pregnancy induced, hypertension initially, a lot of the Pecos research, focused on these communities, where there had been this high level of exposure, more recent studies, have started looking at the general population, and I think that that's where this gets really interesting because what they're starting to find is that studies are suggesting that even people exposed to what might be referred to his background levels of p fusses show, negative health effects, most interestingly and may be most concerning laid. Some of these negative effects are on the developing fetus babies. So researchers are saying that it can affect, for example, the immune system and these populations. Is there a standard level for what's considered a dangerous p fast level or is that something that's still also being determined? That is very much being determined and a believe it was two thousand and nine the EPA established a health advisory level of six hundred parts per trillion of PF. Oh. A and PFOS combined drinking water. And then in twenty sixteen. They dropped that level significantly to seventy parts per trillion and that in twenty eighteen a branch of the CDC came out with a new study suggesting Twenty-one parts per trillion for PF away and fourteen parts per trillion for PFOS, and then you have some researchers one at Harvard saying one part petroleum is where that level should be. So there's a lad of conversation around. What is a protective level in drinking water, this investigation in the small town has also prompted other areas to look into what their p Fasces levels are, and what has this unveiled one of the interesting consequences of the concerned, citizens work is that shortly after the state of Michigan launched what I believe is the most comprehensive statewide survey searching for pizzas, and they found is that here in Michigan. Nearly one point four million residents are drinking water from orces, contaminated with pitas. It's also showing up and things like foam, that's on our rivers. And so there have been a number of advisories. Do not eat befo. Don't touch the phone fish advisories, dear advisories. It's really extensive ubiquitous exposure to these compounds. And then other states also. Oh, are just starting to look, but nobody has looked quite as comprehensively as the state of Michigan has right. It interesting that all these investigations are being prompted but this also isn't the first time that p asses have been under investigation happened several decades ago as well. Right. Are you referring to the DuPont trial? Yeah. Sometime around nineteen ninety nine early two thousands a cattle farmer in West Virginia suspected that something was going on. Some of his farm land had been purchased by DuPont and not long after that his cattle died, and he wasn't able to get much help locally. And so he ended up going to a Cincinnati-based Turney who sued the company and in the process of that he was able to obtain a lot of internal documents from DuPont. And what he found in those documents was that both DuPont, and three who. Had been making pieces as well. Head Ben documenting negative health effects from exposure, experienced by humans and animals, and that they hadn't done enough to make this available to the PA, for example. And so the attorneys sent these documents to the EPA, and subsequently DuPont, was fined, and three m was fined believe a year later, was around that time that both companies agreed to voluntarily phase out PF away and PFOS. So when they phased them out, they replace them with a different chemical is this one actually safer persists lessen the environment. Well, that is a matter of conversation. They replaced PF away and PFOS those two compounds are known as long chain pieces. They replace them with shorter chain passes. So molecules with fewer carbons and. What we do know is that those carbons don't bio accumulate the same way as the longer chain compounds. And for that reason, there's an assumption out there that these are safer, but there are studies, just starting this is just starting to be studied suggesting that this might not be the case and the national toxicology program. For example, is in the process of starting study of believe it's one hundred twenty five of these lesser known. Short chain compounds to see if they really are safer than the longer chain compounds after this, this fine that they received were their cleanup efforts, or is there, a way to clean up these P asses from water supplies. What we know is that you can use something called granular activated carbon to filter out in particular longer chain passes, so PF away, and PFOS from drinking water, however. That approach. It has variable success with the shorter chain passes which can sometimes break through the filter and they can break through more quickly. So one of the things that water systems are starting to look at is using perhaps a combination of granular activated. Carbon with reverse osmosis, which is a little bit more effective at filtering out short chain passes. All of this though is very expensive. And so that has really put especially some of these smaller municipalities in a tough spot, and others Superfund cleanup sites that kind of thing is there any sort of fund that these local communities can tap into that ole pay for this remediation, one of the things is that because pizza's is not as needed as a hazardous substance. It doesn't qualify as far as I know for cleanup funds through Superfund now, some states are starting to pass their own legislation. In New York, for example, does designate FOSS as a hazardous substance so you can get funding through there. And then the other thing that states are starting to do is actually sue the manufacturers to try and recuperate some of the costs of updating their drinking water systems. Would you say this whole investigation all across the country is still kind of the first step of finding where these sites are? And then the next step of cleanup is still a little bit murkier. Yes. That's very true. Historically are understanding of pizzas and exposure has really been concentrated in these areas around particular very few limited number of military, bases, and also communities that are near manufacturing facilities, and what we're starting to find now is, especially as we have the tools to detect passes at lower levels were finding that these are in drinking water supplies and places, people would never have suspected. But not everybody is looking. And so that's one of the things that I think different states, and different municipalities will be grappling with for years to come. Thank you so much. Sarah. Yes, thank you. Sarah helps is a freelance, writer and senior editor at undock. You can find a link to her story at signs MAG dot org slash podcasts.

And, one of the things we learned is that. Regular old fashioned chemotherapy really just doesn't work with kidney cancer and we're and yet we're still hearing about people who are being put on standard chemotherapy treatments like you would for breast cancer or things, it does work for other conditions, but it just doesn't work for kidney cancer, but there are a whole bunch of new drugs that have come out in the last ten years. There's a lot of action in this area and that that's a really compelling reason for talking to one of the top experts.
