The history of human disease is closely related to the times. During the period of “hunger”, “starvation” was everywhere; in the dark ages, cholera, dysentery, and pestis had tortured and devoured many people. Nowadays, humans have entered the modern civilization era for a long time, and the living environment has been significantly improved. Due to the existence of rodents, the pestis has still not been eradicated, and the pestis occurred when there has any carelessly prevention and control. Recently, there was a pestis incident in Inner Mongolia, China. At present, three pestis spots have been found in Inner Mongolia, and 15 close contacts had been medical isolated and observed at home. After the outbreak, Bayannur City (where the diagnosed patient is located) launched Level IV emergency response and Level III prevention and control from July 5th until the end of

Colleen’s Dream Foundation, a Scottsdale-based nonprofit, today announced a $30,000 grant to the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) to research new ways of treating ovarian cancer.
The grant will help fund research that builds on TGen’s discovery that mutations in a gene known as SMARCA4 drive a specific type of extremely aggressive ovarian cancer — Small Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary, Hypercalcemic Type (SCCOHT) — which most often affects girls and young women.
More than 20 years ago, a billboard in China piqued the interest of a chemical biologist. It endorsed an extract from the plant known as the “thunder god vine” as an immunosuppressant.
