Trends In Primary Cesarean Section Rates Among Women With And Without Perinatal Mood And Anxiety Disorders. Health Affairs, 2021; 40 (10): 1585 DOI: 10.1377/hlthaff.2021.00780

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders have already been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes like low birth weight and preterm birth. And now, a new Michigan Medicine study finds that they may also be linked to significantly higher rates of first time cesarean deliveries among women who were otherwise at low risk of having one.

?Our findings reinforce the importance of better identifying and treating perinatal depression and anxiety disorders in pregnant women,? said senior author Vanessa Dalton, M.D., M.P.H., obstetrician gynecologist at University of Michigan Health Von Voigtlander Women?s Hospital.

?It?s critical to better understand how these mood disorders increase the likelihood of cesarean section deliveries, which we know have both short and long-term health consequences for both expecting moms and their babies.?

Researchers analyzed national data for 360,225 delivery hospitalizations among commercially insured women ages 15-44 during the decade between 2008 and 2017, with 24% including a first-time delivery by cesarean section. The findings appear in Health Affairs.

The study is among the largest to document a link between predated mood and anxiety disorders and first-time c-sections among low-risk pregnant women. Previous research on this relationship is limited, often including patients who had previous cesarean deliveries ? one of the most significant predictors of a repeat c-section ? or who may not have already been diagnosed with a perinatal mood disorder.

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders affect as many as one in five reproductive-age women in the United States, and the prevalence of these disorders more than doubled between 2006 and 2015 among childbearing women in the U.S. The prevalence of suicidal ideation and intentional self-harm in the year before or after a birth also rose during that time period, with suicide being a leading cause of maternal mortality.

?There?s been growing recognition that mental health is really important during the time of pregnancy,? Dalton said. ?Maternal suicide risk is especially high the year following delivery.?

Anxiety and depression have numerous other negative consequences for women and their children, Dalton said, including adverse birth outcomes, higher rates of maternal morbidity, and lost earnings.

Estimated costs of untreated perinatal mood and anxiety disorders also exceed $14 billion in the U.S. from conception through the first five years of a child?s life and may affect the long-term use of health care resources for both women and their children, authors note.

Caesarian section risks

Reducing the rate of first-time cesarean sections is a Healthy People 2030 goal in the U.S. endorsed by numerous public health and professional societies.

Like any major surgery, cesarean deliveries come with several associated risks, including blood clots, hemorrhaging, infection and risks to future pregnancies. Most women who undergo a cesarean section for their first birth will go on to have a repeat cesarean section.

?Cesarean sections are a major contributing factor to maternal morbidity events after a delivery with many adverse downstream effects,? Dalton said. ?We need to understand all factors that may increase a woman?s chance of a c-section delivery so we can avoid any unnecessary risks.?

Authors note that the Healthy People goal is to reduce caesarians by 2.3% ? and that about women with a prenatal diagnosis of anxiety or depression had a predicted probability of having a cesarean section that was about 3.5% higher than women without anxiety or depression.

Women with these disorders were more likely to be older, be White, and reside in a household with income more than 400 percent of poverty compared with those without perinatal mood and anxiety disorders

While reasons for the relationship are speculative, there have been unproven theories, including a notion that prenatal anxiety is sometimes focused on the delivery itself ? which may prompt providers to turn to cesarean to reduce the labor process. Others have theorized that maternal distress may affect placental development, which in turn may impact symptoms of fetal distress during labor that could prompt a caesarian section.

But none of these speculations have been proven and further studies are needed to gain insight on the association, Dalton said.

?We need more research to clarify the relationship between perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and primary cesarean section rates to enhance our understanding of the consequences of these disorders for health outcomes,? she said. ?This could potentially inform efforts to develop and evaluate effective treatments and policy interventions.?

Because of “Hong Kong’s National Security Law, which makes it impossible for human rights organizations to operate freely and without fear of serious reprisals from the government,” Amnesty International will be leaving Hong Kong.

?The recent targeting of local rights groups and unions is a signal of an intensified campaign by the authorities to rid the city of dissent. It is increasingly difficult for us to continue working in such an unstable environment ?, justified, in a statement, the president of the international office of the NGO, Anjhula Mya Singh Bais.

On Tuesday, Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, said the law still guarantees freedom of association. According to her, those who invoke the national security law to end their activities “Cannot prove” that it is because of this that they make this decision.

Over 70 people, many of the city’s most prominent pro-democracy activists, have been indicted under the bill, most of them simply expressing now illegal political views.

In July, the first Hong Kong man tried under the new law was sentenced to nine years in prison for riding a motorbike at a police officer while waving a flag bearing writings considered subversive.

A second defendant was found guilty on Monday October 25 of “secession” for chanting slogans such as: “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our time!” “ Jailed for ten months, the young man, the first person to be sentenced for a non-violent offense against national security, will serve his sentence later. He faces seven years in prison. National Security Law trials take place without a jury and before magistrates specially selected by the government.

You returned to Mladá Boleslav for work after twenty years. How big did the local club record?

When I left, there was a meadow on the site of the athletic oval, the second league was played on the current first training area, instead of the artist there was slag and we went to various places in the city to train. The club has played European cups several times, the sporting shift is huge, as is the one in terms of club infrastructure. It is necessary to appreciate how the club has moved forward in these areas.

Why did you decide in June, shortly after leaving Slavia in Prague, to accept an offer for the head of the academy in a Central Bohemian city?

Based on the management audit, it was concluded that many things are not working as they should. Representatives of the club approached me with an offer of cooperation. We agreed that things needed to be done with greater intensity and also with the necessary efficiency. We have brought new coaches, we have a project to expand the rehabilitation of youth, the background of changing rooms and also the support of women’s football. In secondary schools, we want and need to renew sports classes, which have always belonged to the pride of Mladá Boleslav football. We have prepared a concept of connecting the training program with other sports such as judo, athletics, gymnastics and more. We want to be a natural leader within the region, to have a positive effect on the development of football and education. We organize seminars for coaches from lower competitions, we have open trainings, we prepare tournaments.

Unhappy Boleslav did not call Red for Do?kal, Hlo?ek then saved Sparta

What are your ambitions as the head of the academy?

The first ambition is, of course, to educate complex players who will be able to make a name for our A-team and who will have the necessary parameters for transfers to larger clubs and abroad. We also want to support dual careers so that the boys are able to succeed in life, have the necessary education and perhaps once return to the system in other positions, such as coaches, physiotherapists, analysts or marketers when their football career does not work out. And then, of course, there is the ability to predict the possible development of football and thus be able to direct boys aged ten or twelve and prepare for football, which will be played in five or seven years, when they grow into adult categories.

Marek Suchý from Mladá Boleslav during the match in Sparta.

Vlastimil Vacek, Right

Is it realistic to achieve cooperation with foreign clubs, for example within the group of your main sponsor?

We hope so. We try to take advantage of the fact that ?koda Auto is a multinational company. Therefore, we would like to establish cooperation with Wolfsburg. I think it’s directly offered. I believe that it is possible to achieve internships between coaches or the best players in the youth, to organize joint tournaments. In addition, we are already establishing contacts with interesting foreign clubs today and we also have one interesting idea here, and that is to base our vision of cooperation on the blue-and-white club colors.

Will you be able to experience in Mladá Boleslav from the Slavia Academy in Prague, where you finished at the end of the spring part of the season? Or is the environment so different that it can’t be connected?

It turned out that an interesting project can be created relatively quickly. We have had tangible results in five years and Slavia is already benefiting significantly from it. I am sure that we are able to create a similar project as in Eden and that the same quality academy can be established in Mladá Boleslav. Each environment has its own specifics and we will try to make the most of the benefits offered by our environment for working with talented players, we will want to focus on working with detail, support individuals and also the journey to the league should be faster than this is the case for large clubs. I believe that we will be able to be original in certain areas and yes, I realize that we have a very demanding job ahead of us and we will not get anything for free or it will change from day to day.

Jarolím: I expect more goals from ?koda, young Fila has a killer instinct

Will the plans not be jeopardized by the fact that you also became the sports director of the first team in Mladá Boleslav?

I see it as a great opportunity to combine everything into one functional system. It should not be the case that A is living his life and the youth is cut off. The academy will be a natural support for the activities of the A-team. Yes, every match is important from many points of view, but the concept, vision and our primary goals must be clearly stated in the club. Otherwise, we will always stay in the circle and we will experience such a Czech color over and over again. Therefore, we hire a nutritionist, fitness expert, physiotherapy, launch important projects at the regional level, seek foreign confrontation, establish contacts with experts from around the world, who bring new data and information to set up the right training process and look for progressive methods for player education. etc…

But the current results of the first team do not add much to you.

It is clear that the results are important for the system to be stable. But I repeat, we need to set up a longer-term concept with clear parameters and points of reference. We said where we want to be in three or four years. In addition, I have no doubt about the strength of the ac. It just needs time to play after a series of changes.

Is the direction related to a certain stagnation, when Mladá Boleslav vacated its position in cup Europe or its vicinity?

We want a stable club that will be one of the better in the Czech Republic. Play with offspring, perform attractive football and produce players who will be attractive and able to respond to the demands of the times.

Is it possible to combine both roles? Will the youth project not suffer from your involvement?

My interest in youth and related projects does not shift into the background, on the contrary, it is a great opportunity for all of us to do things in a connected, systematic and with the necessary overlaps. Of course, some individuals in the whole system will get even more responsibility and will need to work even more as a team, but even here it is a clear philosophy, where we need to have coaches in the system, workers who are able to take over and bear the necessary co-responsibility for creating the system. it is important to have and develop creative personalities here. We will divide it so that we do not lose momentum. It is not and cannot be built on one person.

Will it be an effort to apply a unified style from the first team to the last youth team?

It doesn’t have to be a uniform style. The point is to educate players with a profile and character ability to succeed in the biggest of football, so that the boys are able to play more game systems. There is no point in saying that we want to play like Ajax or Barcelona when we know that our role and position are completely different.

During the holidays you almost moved to Prague’s Strahov. You were to become the sports and technical director of the FACR. Why did the cooperation end in the end?

At the beginning of the summer, when the offer appeared, Mladá Boleslav was willing to consider my release. The offer pleased me, it was in a way an appreciation of my work and it deserves to thank Peter Fousek for addressing me, I appreciate it. However, three FACR executive committees took place during the summer, but not once was there a vote to fill the position. In the meantime, the position in Mladá Boleslav changed, there were some personnel changes and I did not want to leave for strength. I believe that the word should be kept and that we should respect the principles of good behavior and mutual respect in society.

Did you feel unwanted at Strahov when none of the three executive committees voted on your cast?

The European Championships were taking place and there were probably other things that were given priority. I didn’t push anywhere, I didn’t offer myself anywhere. I was approached by the union and did not want to be part of the behind-the-scenes pressures. I perceived it as an acceptable person for Czech football. But it is clear that the behind-the-scenes aspects of the occupation or non-occupancy of the position played a role and will always play, unfortunately often to the detriment of the actual development of Czech football.

You returned to Mladá Boleslav for work after twenty years. How big did the local club record?

When I left, there was a meadow on the site of the athletic oval, the second league was played on the current first training area, instead of the artist there was slag and we went to various places in the city to train. The club has played European cups several times, the sporting shift is huge, as is the one in terms of club infrastructure. It is necessary to appreciate how the club has moved forward in these areas.

Why did you decide in June, shortly after leaving Slavia in Prague, to accept an offer for the head of the academy in a Central Bohemian city?

Based on the management audit, it was concluded that many things are not working as they should. Representatives of the club approached me with an offer of cooperation. We agreed that things needed to be done with greater intensity and also with the necessary efficiency. We have brought new coaches, we have a project to expand the rehabilitation of youth, the background of changing rooms and also the support of women’s football. In secondary schools, we want and need to renew sports classes, which have always belonged to the pride of Mladá Boleslav football. We have prepared a concept of connecting the training program with other sports such as judo, athletics, gymnastics and more. We want to be a natural leader within the region, to have a positive effect on the development of football and education. We organize seminars for coaches from lower competitions, we have open trainings, we prepare tournaments.

Unhappy Boleslav did not call Red for Do?kal, Hlo?ek then saved Sparta

What are your ambitions as the head of the academy?

The first ambition is, of course, to educate complex players who will be able to make a name for our A-team and who will have the necessary parameters for transfers to larger clubs and abroad. We also want to support dual careers so that the boys are able to succeed in life, have the necessary education and perhaps once return to the system in other positions, such as coaches, physiotherapists, analysts or marketers when their football career does not work out. And then, of course, there is the ability to predict the possible development of football and thus be able to direct boys aged ten or twelve and prepare for football, which will be played in five or seven years, when they grow into adult categories.

Is it realistic to achieve cooperation with foreign clubs, for example within the group of your main sponsor?

We hope so. We try to take advantage of the fact that ?koda Auto is a multinational company. Therefore, we would like to establish cooperation with Wolfsburg. I think it’s directly offered. I believe that it is possible to achieve internships between coaches or the best players in the youth, to organize joint tournaments. In addition, we are already establishing contacts with interesting foreign clubs today and we also have one interesting idea here, and that is to base our vision of cooperation on the blue-and-white club colors.

Will you be able to experience in Mladá Boleslav from the Slavia Academy in Prague, where you finished at the end of the spring part of the season? Or is the environment so different that it can’t be connected?

It turned out that an interesting project can be created relatively quickly. We have had tangible results in five years and Slavia is already benefiting significantly from it. I am sure that we are able to create a similar project as in Eden and that the same quality academy can be established in Mladá Boleslav. Each environment has its own specifics and we will try to make the most of the benefits offered by our environment for working with talented players, we will want to focus on working with detail, support individuals and also the journey to the league should be faster than this is the case for large clubs. I believe that we will be able to be original in certain areas and yes, I realize that we have a very demanding job ahead of us and we will not get anything for free or it will change from day to day.

Will the plans not be jeopardized by the fact that you also became the sports director of the first team in Mladá Boleslav?

Sudanese Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan speaks at a press conference at the General Command of the Armed Forces in Khartoum on October 26, 2021.

Monday morning, General Al-Bourhane dissolved the transitional authorities. Abdallah Hamdok, the prime minister, many of his ministers, their wives, and all civilian members of the Sovereignty Council, the highest authority in the transition, were arrested by the military.

Mr. Hamdok, whose release is demanded by the international community, “Find me”Al-Bourhane said on Tuesday. “Yes, we arrested ministers and politicians, but not all”, again launched the general in a long press conference where he justified all of his action. Mr. Hamdok, a former United Nations (UN) economist, is ” in good health ” and “Will return home when the crisis is over.”

In the wake of this press conference, the Prime Minister’s office called “The putschists” to free ” at once “ all those arrested, in a statement released by the Ministry of Information.

Since 2019 and the fall of Al-Bashir, power has been shared between the civilian government led by Mr. Hamdok and the sovereignty council responsible for leading the transition, but the coup comes amid heightened tensions between civilians and military.

The leadership of the Sovereignty Council was to be transferred to a civilian figure in the coming months and the military had so far affirmed their willingness to respect the transition process, but the exact date of this handover was not yet known. precisely. In addition, the transitional authorities were struggling to come to an agreement on the surrender of Al-Bashir to the International Criminal Court.

On October 16, army supporters pitched their tents in front of the presidential palace, where the transitional authorities are based. In response, on October 21, supporters of civil power took to the streets of the country by tens of thousands to ” to save “ their “Revolution”. Two days ago, the civilian camp warned against a “Rampant coup”, during a press conference that a small crowd had sought to prevent.

On Tuesday, three Sudanese ambassadors in Europe announced their defection, condemning the military coup of the day before and proclaiming their embassies as those of the “Sudanese people”, announced on Facebook the Ministry of Information. “We fully align ourselves with the heroic opposition followed by the whole world and proclaim the Sudanese embassies in France, Belgium and Switzerland as embassies of the Sudanese people and their revolution”, wrote Omar Béchir Maniss, Abderrahim Ahmed Khalil and Ali Ibn Abi Taleb Abderrahman Al-Gendi.

The international community has also expressed concern. For the troika in maneuver on the Sudanese issue for years, the United States, Great Britain and Norway, “The actions of the military betray the revolution and the transition” post-dictatorship after the fall in 2019 of the autocrat Omar Al-Bashir. In addition, Washington has “Suspended” assistance of 700 million dollars to Sudan as the prospect of the first free elections seems increasingly compromised.

For his part, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for the immediate release of the ministers, deploring the « multiplication » of coups this year around the world. The “Important geopolitical divisions” which prevent “The Security Council to take strong measures”, the pandemic, economic and social difficulties mean that “Military leaders consider that they have total impunity, that they can do what they want because nothing will happen to them”, he said at a press conference. “I call on the great powers to come together for a unity of the Security Council in order to ensure that there is effective deterrence about this epidemic of coups d’état” which the world is witnessing in Asia or Africa, continued Antonio Guterres.

The 15 members of the UN Security Council are to meet urgently behind closed doors on Sudan from 10 p.m. (Paris time), at the request of the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway, from the United States, Estonia and France. Mexico, Kenya, Niger, Tunisia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, non-permanent members of the Council, supported this convocation. According to diplomats, the adoption of a declaration has been under negotiation since Monday, but it was not certain that Russia and China, in particular, will ratify its approval.

The ” general strike “ had won the capital on Tuesday, between employees unable to reach their offices by cut roads and demonstrators determined to block the country. “No to military power”, “The revolution continues”, still chant the demonstrators under a swarm of Sudanese flags, responding to the call of unions spearheading the 2019 revolt.

SINGAPORE – Early last year, when Covid-19 first hit Singapore, there was an urgent need to ramp up virus-testing capacity, which stood at 2,900 tests per day in 2019.

In about three months, a team from across the defence industry came together to develop a novel solution – a mobile laboratory for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests that can be deployed in the field and scaled up when required.

In May last year, the first forward deployed lab (FDL) was set up at the Changi Exhibition Centre, contributing to testing at migrant worker dormitories.

Another one was set up in August last year at the Army Museum in Joo Koon.

Today, four FDLs located on the rooftop of a carpark next to Changi Airport Terminal 4 have the capacity to conduct 10,000 tests a day.

As at Oct 1, the four FDLs have processed more than 160,000 Covid-19 samples. The FDL is currently the only field Covid-19 PCR testing lab licensed by the Ministry of Health.

The team behind the FDL was among the winners of the annual Defence Technology Prize, given to those who have made significant contributions to the defence capabilities of Singapore.

The team comprises staff from DSO National Laboratories, the Defence Science and Technology Agency and the Ministry of Defence (Mindef).

Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony on Tuesday (Oct 26), Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said that Mindef and the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) have responded effectively to the unexpected challenges thrown up in the past year.

“When Mindef and the SAF were called to assist in national efforts, I am proud of the way we did it – fully professional, task-oriented, clear goals and with key deliverables in mind and an attitude which says ‘let’s get to work’,” he said.

Other government agencies and Singaporeans recognise that the SAF has the ability to deal with complex issues like the coronavirus outbreak among migrant workers and the home recovery programme for Covid-19 patients, said Dr Ng.

“This confidence and capabilities that others recognise in us reflect well on our ability to prosecute difficult missions when called upon and it is part of our ethos of the SAF,” he added.

Close to 300 testers were trained to operate the FDLs, and about half of them had no background in biology, said Associate Professor Mahesh Uttamchandani, 41, from DSO, who is the founding lab director.

He believes that teamwork was key to the labs’ success. “This is something that I’m most inspired by. What it took was a team from all walks of life, all backgrounds, to come together as volunteers in order to step up against Covid-19.”

Another Defence Technology Prize recipient was the team that developed the A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport aircraft hangar – the SAF’s first net-positive-energy building – at Changi Air Base (East). This means the facility can generate more electricity than it consumes.

Ms Jolene Chung, 29, who is deputy head of building and infrastructure at DSTA and part of the project team, said the team went beyond operational requirements to deliver the sustainable initiatives for the hangar.

These include a solar energy harvesting system and the recycling of rainwater for non-potable uses such as irrigation of the hangar’s green roof.

This year, the prizes were given to six teams and two individuals.

Head of the Centre of Excellence for guided weapons at ST Engineering Han Meow Kwang, 60, was one of the individual prize winners.

His citation said he was “instrumental in building up Singapore’s strategic capability in rocket motors”, including for use in mine-clearing systems.

He said: “I hope that this award can inspire the younger generation of engineers and technologists to attain greater heights in their field of work, to contribute to the SAF’s defence and technology effectiveness.”

Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony on Tuesday (Oct 26), Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said that Mindef and the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) have responded effectively to the unexpected challenges thrown up in the past year.

“When Mindef and the SAF were called to assist in national efforts, I am proud of the way we did it – fully professional, task-oriented, clear goals and with key deliverables in mind and an attitude which says ‘let’s get to work’,” he said.

Other government agencies and Singaporeans recognise that the SAF has the ability to deal with complex issues like the coronavirus outbreak among migrant workers and the home recovery programme for Covid-19 patients, said Dr Ng.

“This confidence and capabilities that others recognise in us reflect well on our ability to prosecute difficult missions when called upon and it is part of our ethos of the SAF,” he added.

Close to 300 testers were trained to operate the FDLs, and about half of them had no background in biology, said Associate Professor Mahesh Uttamchandani, 41, from DSO, who is the founding lab director.

He believes that teamwork was key to the labs’ success. “This is something that I’m most inspired by. What it took was a team from all walks of life, all backgrounds, to come together as volunteers in order to step up against Covid-19.”

Another Defence Technology Prize recipient was the team that developed the A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport aircraft hangar – the SAF’s first net-positive-energy building – at Changi Air Base (East). This means the facility can generate more electricity than it consumes.

Ms Jolene Chung, 29, who is deputy head of building and infrastructure at DSTA and part of the project team, said the team went beyond operational requirements to deliver the sustainable initiatives for the hangar.

These include a solar energy harvesting system and the recycling of rainwater for non-potable uses such as irrigation of the hangar’s green roof.

This year, the prizes were given to six teams and two individuals.

Head of the Centre of Excellence for guided weapons at ST Engineering Han Meow Kwang, 60, was one of the individual prize winners.

His citation said he was “instrumental in building up Singapore’s strategic capability in rocket motors”, including for use in mine-clearing systems.

He said: “I hope that this award can inspire the younger generation of engineers and technologists to attain greater heights in their field of work, to contribute to the SAF’s defence and technology effectiveness.”

The study examined the effects of a calorically restricted diet and a ketogenic diet in mice with pancreatic tumors. While both of these diets reduce the amount of sugar available to tumors, the researchers found that only the calorically restricted diet reduced the availability of fatty acids, and this was linked to a slowdown in tumor growth.

The findings do not suggest that cancer patients should try to follow either of these diets, the researchers say. Instead, they believe the findings warrant further study to determine how dietary interventions might be combined with existing or emerging drugs to help patients with cancer.

?There?s a lot of evidence that diet can affect how fast your cancer progresses, but this is not a cure,? says Matthew Vander Heiden, director of MIT?s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and the senior author of the study. ?While the findings are provocative, further study is needed, and individual patients should talk to their doctor about the right dietary interventions for their cancer.?

MIT postdoc Evan Lien is the lead author of the paper, which appears today in Nature.

Metabolic mechanism

Vander Heiden, who is also a medical oncologist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, says his patients often ask him about the potential benefits of various diets, but there is not enough scientific evidence available to offer any definitive advice. Many of the dietary questions that patients have focus on either a calorie-restricted diet, which reduces calorie consumption by 25 to 50 percent, or a ketogenic diet, which is low in carbohydrates and high in fat and protein.

Previous studies have suggested that a calorically restricted diet might slow tumor growth in some contexts, and such a diet has been shown to extend lifespan in mice and many other animal species. A smaller number of studies exploring the effects of a ketogenic diet on cancer have produced inconclusive results.

?A lot of the advice or cultural fads that are out there aren?t necessarily always based on very good science,? Lien says. ?It seemed like there was an opportunity, especially with our understanding of cancer metabolism having evolved so much over the past 10 years or so, that we could take some of the biochemical principles that we?ve learned and apply those concepts to understanding this complex question.?

Cancer cells consume a great deal of glucose, so some scientists had hypothesized that either the ketogenic diet or calorie restriction might slow tumor growth by reducing the amount of glucose available. However, the MIT team?s initial experiments in mice with pancreatic tumors showed that calorie restriction has a much greater effect on tumor growth than the ketogenic diet, so the researchers suspected that glucose levels were not playing a major role in the slowdown.

To dig deeper into the mechanism, the researchers analyzed tumor growth and nutrient concentration in mice with pancreatic tumors, which were fed either a normal, ketogenic, or calorie-restricted diet. In both the ketogenic and calorie-restricted mice, glucose levels went down. In the calorie-restricted mice, lipid levels also went down, but in mice on the ketogenic diet, they went up.

Lipid shortages impair tumor growth because cancer cells need lipids to construct their cell membranes. Normally, when lipids aren?t available in a tissue, cells can make their own. As part of this process, they need to maintain the right balance of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, which requires an enzyme called stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD). This enzyme is responsible for converting saturated fatty acids into unsaturated fatty acids.

Both calorie-restricted and ketogenic diets reduce SCD activity, but mice on the ketogenic diet had lipids available to them from their diet, so they didn?t need to use SCD. Mice on the calorie-restricted diet, however, couldn?t get fatty acids from their diet or produce their own. In these mice, tumor growth slowed significantly, compared to mice on the ketogenic diet.

?Not only does caloric restriction starve tumors of lipids, it also impairs the process that allows them to adapt to it. That combination is really contributing to the inhibition of tumor growth,? Lien says.

Dietary effects

In addition to their mouse research, the researchers also looked at some human data. Working with Brian Wolpin, an oncologist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and an author of the paper, the team obtained data from a large cohort study that allowed them to analyze the relationship between dietary patterns and survival times in pancreatic cancer patients. From that study, the researchers found that the type of fat consumed appears to influence how patients on a low-sugar diet fare after a pancreatic cancer diagnosis, although the data are not complete enough to draw any conclusions about the effect of diet, the researchers say.

Although this study showed that calorie restriction has beneficial effects in mice, the researchers say they do not recommend that cancer patients follow a calorie-restricted diet, which is difficult to maintain and can have harmful side effects. However, they believe that cancer cells? dependence on the availability of unsaturated fatty acids could be exploited to develop drugs that might help slow tumor growth.

One possible therapeutic strategy could be inhibition of the SCD enzyme, which would cut off tumor cells? ability to produce unsaturated fatty acids.

?The purpose of these studies isn?t necessarily to recommend a diet, but it?s to really understand the underlying biology,? Lien says. ?They provide some sense of the mechanisms of how these diets work, and that can lead to rational ideas on how we might mimic those situations for cancer therapy.?

The researchers now plan to study how diets with a variety of fat sources ? including plant or animal-based fats with defined differences in saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acid content ? alter tumor fatty acid metabolism and the ratio of unsaturated to saturated fatty acids.

The research was funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Lustgarten Foundation, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Hale Family Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research, Stand Up to Cancer, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, the Noble Effort Fund, the Wexler Family Fund, Promises for Purple, the Bob Parsons Fund, the Emerald Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the MIT Center for Precision Cancer Medicine, and the Ludwig Center at MIT.

It was inaugurated on Saturday 23 October on Park of the Walls, the project of the recovery of the historic walls which is part of a wider project of rediscovery and requalification of the architectural testimonies of the history of Spezzina pre and post Arsenalizia.

The works were financed with resources from the Regional Strategic Fund and municipal resources for a total of 1 million 500 thousand euros .

“The Parco delle Mura is the first piece of the largest mosaic that is Spezia Forte, the recovery of La Spezia history from the fourteenth to the twentieth century so that the people of La Spezia can regain possession of the places in the heart of our city and become an unprecedented tourist flywheel – declares the Mayor della Spezia Pierluigi Peracchini – the Parco delle Mura winds for 4 km and is a path surrounded by nature that connects the city center with the hilly area: today we inaugurate the first section, but we are already working on the second, with a view to finalize the path to reach the Parco della Rimembranza, whose inauguration is scheduled for next spring.

The Parco delle Mura – continues the Mayor – is beauty to be experienced 24 hours a day, from sunrise to sunset: excursions, romantic walks, Sunday outings, in total safety thanks to video surveillance, at the maximum possible inclusion for people with disabilities, night lighting. A dream of the people of La Spezia that becomes reality thanks to the resources of the Liguria Region which from the very beginning strongly believed in this project ».

«As the Liguria region, through the Regional Strategic Fund, we have gladly financed the redevelopment of an area so important for the city of La Spezia – explained the president of the Liguria region Giovanni Toti -. The Parco delle Mura represents an area of ??great value in the city, both from the point of view of urban and historical greenery, an investment that will allow the city to increase its tourist appeal even more, with a splendid path in the green and a dip in history for its citizens “.

The inauguration of the Parco delle Mura is part of the larger historical project “Spezia Forte” which also includes the Parco della Rimembranza, a Museum dedicated to the Cold War, the restoration of the former convent of the Poor Clares, the recovery of the Quintino Sella anti-aircraft gallery each identified with a specific brand, historical explanatory panels in Italian and English complete with information and QR code. The Parco delle Mura will become a new place for La Spezia people and tourists where, immersed in nature, they can take a dip in the past of our city, admire the breathtaking panorama with unprecedented views and also spend an unforgettable evening with the illuminated walls.

The project of “Redevelopment and recovery of the nineteenth-century walls of La Spezia”, ??has included and involved all those works necessary for the recovery and enhancement of the nineteenth-century walls of La Spezia to make the parallel path accessible to them which, together with the existing historical artifact relating to the so-called security belt, is organically inserted in a compendium that runs for about 4 km and is called “Parco delle mura”. This park is spread over the hilly area of ??La Spezia, embracing the historic nucleus of nineteenth-century expansion and develops in an almost continuous arc in an east-west direction starting from the area behind the Cathedral to the Collina di Gaggiola to the west, including exclusively the areas relating to the paths located outside and above the walls.

Finally, a video surveillance system was created to ensure maximum safety and also discourage phenomena of waste abandonment and a lighting system that will guarantee on the one hand the use of the site even in the evening and on the other will allow a very suggestive view of the walls in evening time from the city.

ÖFB-Cup

The start of the round of 16 in the Uniqa-ÖFB-Cup brought a peat festival on Tuesday. The Bundesliga third WAC had to work overtime at the second division Lafnitz, but in the end won 5: 3 (2: 2) after extra time. The decisive goal was scored by Dominik Baumgartner of all people, who had previously also scored in his own goal. The Carinthians turned a deficit twice with well-performing Styrians.

Matthäus Taferner brought the guests into the lead (19th), but Lafnitz turned the game around with Philipp Wendler (23rd) and a header by Baumgartner (26th). Before the break, a goalkeeper mistake led to 2-2 by Dario Vizinger (38th). The goalscorer took the place of goalgetter Tal Baribo after the Israeli was out with a muscle injury in his thigh. According to WAC coach Robin Dutt, Baribo will miss one or two more games.

In the second half, Lafnitz took the lead again through Thomas Schriebl (68th), but Christopher Wernitznig headed Wolfsberger into extra time (78th). In this, Lafnitz goalie Lucas Wabnig defused a shot by Michael Liendl (112th), seconds later Baumgartner put the corner kicked by the WAC director in the goal. Wernitznig (123rd) overcame Wabnig from a distance.

Goal to 3: 5 by Wernitznig (123.Min)

At the end of the day, Wernitznig tied up a double pack with a remarkable long-range shot.

?All’s well that ends well? for WAC

?I was badly positioned at the own goal, but I also know that I’m strong in such a situation,? said WAC defender Baumgartner after the game on ORF. His trainer Dutt spoke of a classic cupfight. ?We didn’t play a good game, our opponents did, so the class difference was evenly balanced. But we have always worked our way back, so the rule is: that ends well, everything is well, ?said the German after the game.

We kept up well, but everything has to fit against a Bundesliga club, ?said Lafnitz striker Wendler. Coach Philipp Semlic took the same line: ?Our goal was to demand everything from our opponents with our game idea. In the end, we succeeded very well, even if the team was not rewarded for the effort. “

Schriebl scores to 3: 2 (68th Min)

A nice attack brings the new lead for Lafnitz.

On Tuesday (2.30 p.m.), the second Carinthian Bundesliga club Austria Klagenfurt will play at the regional division Weiz. The other six round of 16 games will take place on Wednesday and Thursday.

After causing a stir among the Western chancelleries, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan finally gave up his intention to expel ambassadors from ten countries – France, Germany, United States, Canada, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand – accused of interfering in Turkish internal affairs.
