    FDA approves brigatinib as a second-line therapy for ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer.

    AURORA, Colo. (PRWEB) May 17, 2017

    About 3-5 percent of lung cancers are caused by changes in the gene ALK. In 2011, the FDA granted accelerated approval for the drug crizotinib to target these ALK changes. However, two major problems have remained: Crizotinib does not pass into the brain and so is unable to target ALK-positive lung cancer in the central nervous system, and the genetic diversity of cancer allows the later growth of subpopulations that can resist the drug, leading to renewed growth. In response, researchers have been actively developing next-generation ALK-inhibitors.

    Results of a multi-center, 222-person phase 2 clinical trial of the next-generation ALK inhibitor, brigatinib at 180mg/day, used after failure of crizotinib showed a 54 percent response rate and 12.9 month progression-free survival. (Effects were lower at a lower dose.) Results are published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

    “What brigatinib at this higher dose shows is comparable response rates to other next generation ALK inhibitors post-crizotinib but – and this is important – the duration of this benefit appears to be significantly longer,” says D. Ross Camidge, MD, PhD, Joyce Zeff Chair in Lung Cancer Research at the CU Cancer Center and director of Thoracic Oncology at the CU School of Medicine. Camidge is the paper’s senior author.

    In fact, Camidge points out that at the time of publication, many patients enrolled on this trial continued to experience cancer control and that more recent results presented at academic conferences show that median progression-free survival with brigatinib against ALK-positive lung cancer may be closer to 16 months.

    “Once a cancer resists crizotinib, other next-generation ALK inhibitors control cancer for about 7 months or about 9 months. This publication showing 12.9 month progression-free survival and our updated data showing even longer control suggest that these drugs are not all the same,” Camidge says.

    This study along with data from the phase 1 trial showing comparable activity at the same dose and relatively few side-effects led to the FDA approval of brigatinib as a second-line therapy for ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer on April 28, 2017.

    Crizotinib, along with brigatinib and the other next ALK-inhibitors are members of a class of drugs called “kinase inhibitors” that seek to silence the signaling related to various cancer-causing proteins by restricting their access to energy. In this case, all ALK-inhibitors aim first to prohibit the signaling of a protein that results from the aberrant expression of an ALK fusion gene, which is the root cause of what is called ALK-positive lung cancer. The next generation ALK inhibitors all have better penetration into the brain than does crizotinib and work on a range of different mutations in ALK that emerge as mechanisms of resistance to crizotinib. However, they may not all penetrate the brain to the same extent and they may not all work on the same range of resistance mutations.

    As the response rate from these next generation drugs after crizotinib tends to be similar, Camidge hypothesizes that all of the drugs work on the most common resistance mechanisms. “However, the duration of benefit, which really appears to differ between these newer agents, may be much more determined by their ability to suppress the less common ALK mutations – the second and third mechanisms of resistance that would otherwise emerge next month or the month after that,” Camidge says. “Brigatinib has a broader spectrum of coverage of resistance mechanisms than many of these other next generation drugs, especially at the higher dose. So the broader your spectrum of coverage of resistance mechanisms, the longer you control the disease.”

    Camidge also sees potential promise in the fact that brigatinib’s benefit in the recent study increased with its dose. Because the drug is generally well-tolerated, with few side-effects, the obvious implication is that patients may be able to control their cancer longer with a higher dose. Also, “beyond just 90 and 180mg as in this trial, we may have the potential in the future to explore further intra-patient dose escalation,” Camidge says, meaning that if a cancer progresses after treatment with brigatinib, rather than discontinuing the drug, it may be possible to control the cancer again by increasing the dose even more (though more studies are needed).

    This is in contrast with many other genetic changes that cause lung cancer. For example, “In EGFR lung cancer, resistance shifts sensitivity to targeted treatments by orders of magnitude – just doubling the dose of a drug wouldn’t make a difference. But with ALK, some of these resistance mechanisms are on the cusp of what you can inhibit and upping the dose may push cancer cells past the tipping point.”

    As next-generation ALK-inhibitors offer more activity against ALK-positive lung cancer in the brain and better activity against the genetic changes that can help cancer resist crizotinib new questions arise, for example, “What if we don’t wait for resistance but go on a next-gen ALK inhibitor first?” Camidge asks. “Would that give the patient an advantage over using the drugs sequentially?” Reported by PRWeb 22 hours ago.

    The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) (http://www.dvnf.org) has announced that it has sent a shipment of over $175,000 worth of necessities to assist veterans attending the Aurora Veterans Week in the Chicago area.

    Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 18, 2017

    The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) (http://www.dvnf.org) has announced that it has sent a shipment of over $175,000 worth of necessities to assist veterans attending the Aurora Veterans Week in the Chicago area.

    The Aurora Veterans Week is hosted by the Aurora Veterans Advisory Council (AVAC). Located in Aurora, IL, AVAC was founded in 1998 to address the most pressing issues impacting local veterans. Last year, they instituted the first annual “Vets Week Aurora,” which is an entire week dedicated to raising money for, and increasing awareness of, veterans in need.

    This will be the second year DVNF has supported the event, and like last year, DVNF representatives will be on hand to help give out the shipment sent through its Health & Comfort program.

    Items included in this year’s Health & Comfort shipment include: blankets, Comfort Kits, assorted clothing items, shoes, socks, and other helpful care items like sunscreen and soap.

    These items will be given out on Tuesday, May 23rd for the Vet Week Day of Giving. DVNF and other local and national organizations will provide assistance to the veterans attending. DVNF staff members will represent the organization to hand out supplies to veterans and to help in any other way they can.

    “This event was incredible last year, and we are so honored that AVAC wanted to work with DVNF again,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “Having an entire week dedicated to recognizing, supporting, and honoring veterans truly brings new meaning to what it means to serve our heroes, and DVNF is humbled to aid veterans in need at this event.”

    This year’s Veterans Week will take place from May 20-29th. You can find the full schedule of events, here.

    Some Colorado conservatives are joining President Donald Trump in blaming the press for the daily eye-pop, head-spinning news stories streaming from the White House.

    Leading the charge are local talk radio hosts, but conservative politicians are also mad at journalists.

    Appearing on KOA 850-AM Mandy Connell show yesterday, U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) lamented that the media are “inventing this Russia story.”

    *Buck:* “When George Bush won, he was the dumbest human being alive, even though he’d gone to great schools and gotten great degrees. Every time he stumbled in a speech, it was a story for two or three days. He just wasn’t smart enough to be president “ Buck told Connell. “And then we get Barack Obama, and he’s the smartest person in the world. He’s just a savior. “And then we get Donald Trump. And they’ve got to find something with Donald Trump. He’s a very successful businessman. So obviously he’s not stupid. *So now now we’re inventing this Russia story, and just on and on.”*

    Citing the anonymous sources used by the New York Times in its story about Trump pressuring Comey to not investigate former national security adviser Michael Flynn, KNUS radio host and (former Fox 31 Denver reporter) Julie Hayden said on air May 15.

    *Hayden:* “I have been dismayed ― I mean, as a reporter― at just how they just make it ―. I mean, they really do just make it up, you know!”

    Co-host Chuck Bonniwell jumped in with, “They don’t care. They just don’t care.”

    You can always criticize journalists, and some people will never accept anonymous sources, but that’s why we have professional journalism. To utilize such sources in a responsible way. That’s not making stuff up―or not caring.

    Colorado gubernatorial candidate George Brauchler*, *who gained fame as a prosecutor in the Aurora theater murders, also pointed to bias among reporters covering Trump. On KNUS 710-AM May 15, Brauchler said:

    *Brauchler*:  [Journalists] don’t need Trump’s help. But he gives it to them anyway. That’s the only part that’s a little frustrating, is like, ‘If you, Mr. President, could just pull it back― just a little bit ―* it would expose, I think, how biased that they truly are*.’ Because right now, there’s just enough there that they make mountains out of molehills, and all this other stuff.  But if he can just pull it back, just a little bit.

    To her credit, KOA host Mandy Connell faults Trump for blundering, but then she attacks the “viciousness” of the media and says the “media has picked [his blunders] up, [and] blown up into massive proportion.”

    “Trump keeps giving the media ammunition with which to shoot him,” said Connell on air. “If he would shut his pie hole sometimes and not shoot from the hip, they would not have the ammunition that they currently have.”

    In truth, the media are working sources and exposing serious dangers to us and our democracy. That’s what the fourth estate is supposed to do. Thank you, journalism. Listen to Buck on KOA May 18 here.

    Humans change every environment we inhabit on Earth, building cities, clearing forests, growing crops, and living in even the most remote parts of our world. 

    But now we have evidence that we also affect the vacuum of space around us.

    According to new findings, a type of radio communication actually produces something like a bubble of radiation protection around our planet. The study also includes insights from research into how Cold War-era nuclear tests changed the space environment around Earth.

    “A number of experiments and observations have figured out that, under the right conditions, radio communications signals in the VLF [very low frequency] frequency range can in fact affect the properties of the high-energy radiation environment around the Earth,” Phil Erickson, a co-author of the new study appearing the journal Space Science Reviews, said in a statement.

    Benetech, Inc. has resolved a common problem among bulk-material handlers who work in high-temperature environments: trying to keep the conveyor belt clean with a scraper blade that wears out too soon and causes cumbersome maintenance.

    Aurora, IL (PRWEB) May 24, 2017

    Benetech, Inc. has resolved a common problem among bulk-material handlers who work in high-temperature environments: trying to keep the conveyor belt clean with a scraper blade that wears out too soon and causes cumbersome maintenance.

    Benetech’s ADVANTEDGE hot pink conveyor belt cleaner applies advanced design and technology to perform for longer periods without wearing down. The conveyor scraper withstands 375°F of steady operating temperature with intermittent spikes up to 450°F.

    “Many bulk material handlers find that their conveyor belt scraper blades won’t even last a few weeks between maintenance periods,” said Benetech Director of Strategic Initiatives Andy Waters. “The conditions are too much for the blades, which beyond wearing down also create maintenance hassles such as carryback and belt mistracking. Some operators even start to think they won’t find a conveyor belt scraper that lasts.

    “Just one ADVANTEDGE scraper blade installed as an example in a conveyor system shows operators how much more they can achieve for proper and lasting belt cleaning. The ADVANTEDGE blade can perform for well over six months and still stay strong. That increases production, extends conveyor belt life and decreases costly problems.”

    Benetech’s conveyor belt scraper also is compatible with high-heat clinker belts. Replacement belt cleaner blades can retrofit all major cleaner frames as well.

    Benetech provides complete, performance-based solutions for dust mitigation and bulk material–handling systems. Its products, services and technologies reduce dust, prevent spillage, improve material flow and reinforce compliance. A partner in planning, engineering and operating dust control and material handling, Benetech helps companies assess challenges, establish priorities and achieve the results they require.
