In the study published in Journal Nature Medicine, the group of scientists from Stanford University and National Institute of Health found that a molecule, called “CD22”, could serve as a potent target for the killer cells of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a common childhood cancer.
It came after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved last August a cell-based gene therapy, namely the “CAR T-cell” treatment.
The CAR T-cell is a therapy requires drawing blood from patients and separating out the T cells.
It works by genetically modifying a patient’s own immune cells to seek out and attack leukemia cells that have a molecule called “CD19” on their surface.
Such a therapy relies on the patient’s own T cells a type of immune cell that could become a powerful killing machine.
Stanford oncologist Crystal Mackall and NIH’s pediatric hematologist Terry Fry discovered that a molecule called “CD22” can be a similar target.
Scientists treated 21 patients with treatment-resistant B-cell leukemia who are aged seven to 30 to test the new “CD22-directed method.
17 of them were previously treated with CD19-directed therapy and 15 of them had either relapsed or failed to respond.
They found that at the lowest dose level, one in six patients achieved complete remission after treatment, and with an escalated dose, 11 of 15 patients entered remission.
As we age, our body's ability to produce collagen slows down. With this treatment the ultrasound used stimulates this collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
The non-invasive procedure is U.S. FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, on the eyebrow and under the chin as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. The most common side effects reported in clinical trials were redness, swelling, pain.

Often time I feel that we always chasing a imaginary XYZ. Usually during this time of the year I will hear the same comments on how people are feeling lately, nothing about joy, excitement or looking forward to that big meal filled with lots of gravy goodness. It is usually about the bitter cold weather, gloomy sky, and people look stressed and depressed.
Why is that? Yes, I would have a bunch of negative thought about today is gonna be… I’m moving some heavy furnitures later today in this bitter cold Wisconsin weather. However, I think most people forget to be happy. Life is not worth living if we spend our time focusing on the negative energy. Why going through life with such sadness?
Let’s have a #happythanksgiving challenge, list at least 3-5 things on what we are thankful for in our life. 👉🏼Tag a friend after your list! 🖐🏼
I’m thankful for having such supportive group of friends and family, always (maybe not all the time) be there when I really really needed help. Today, especially thankful for my beloved willing to help me move the furnitures in the cold with me, after a long day of work, love you babe for being the greatest button pusher and want nothing but the best for me! I’m thankful for having a roof, warm bed, warm food, everything that keeps me warm and comfortable in this time of the year. I’m thankful for having more than a running car and have gas in it. Lastly, I’m thankful for YOU - for even have the slightest interest in hearing what I have to say and do want to hear how I am doing and always having such meaningful conversations together. Your smiling face (even though you are here for a facial service) lit up my whole entire day! I’m really happy to hear you are always excited to be here, I’m truly thankful for your love and kindness and your faithfulness in bringing me more blessings than I can ask for. Thank you! Xo💕
