New radioimmunotherapy cancer treatment
A major advance in cancer therapy--high dose radioimmunotherapy--resulted in long-term remission for persons with an often-fatal form of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). Seven of eight patients who received the high-dose RIT had a complete remission, compared to only one of four with low dose. Six of the eight (75%) were still in complete remission, and seven of the eight--or 87% of the high-dose patients--were still living after 42 months. (2002-06-17)

Enlarged spleen key to diving endurance of Indonesian 'sea nomads'
The Bajau, a population of sea nomads in Indonesia, are known for their ability to conduct prolonged and repeated deep dives while holding their breath. A new analysis by University of Copenhagen and UC Berkeley scientists shows that they evolved this ability by enlarging their spleen about 50 percent. A genetic analysis links this to upregulated thyroid hormone. This is a unique adaptation to living in a low-oxygen environment, the researchers say. (2018-04-19)

Findings link disease specific anitbodies to activation of T cells for the first time
Harbor-UCLA Research & Education Institute (REI) announced new findings indicating that antibodies specific to Graves' disease bind to cell surface receptors distinct from thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptors. This interaction leads to activation of key genes and T cell activation. It is believed that antibody/receptor complex initiates a cascade of events culminating in T cell activities and thyroid growth. This research was recently published in The Journal of Immunology, 168:942-950,2002. (2002-01-24)
