Concierge Medicine, the epitome of demand for Personalized Healthcare

From Hippocratic oath to Corporate Medicine and back!. The concept of Concierge Medicine, retainer medicine (also referred to as Direct Primary care), characterizes a liaison between a patient and a physician in which the patient disburses an annual fee or retainer. Within the retailer agreement's membership, doctors generally provide medical care to patients by providing 24/7 admission. They provide access to a cell phone number to communicate with their medical doctor directly, grant same-day appointments and visits that last as long as necessary to address their needs varying other amenities. The Concierge Doctor collects a fee generally averaging $125 — $220 per month in exchange for convenient access to the physician and personal attention.

New Study Offers Possible Immunotherapy Breakthrough For Cancer

For cancer immunotherapy to be most effective, a patient’s immune system must be able to “see” the tumor in question. “Hotspots” on cancer cells’ outer membranes can provide this service. These molecular structures contain mutated peptides called neoantigens that the immune system’s T cells recognize as foreign – the first step in binding to the neoantigens and killing the cancerous cells.

Hey Guys, Who Is Your Favourite Teacher?

Who is your favourite teacher and why? It can be a teacher that you still have or someone you had a long time ago. My biology teacher in middle and high school. She was very serious and strict (think McGonagall) but once you were a bit older she was super intelligent and sarcastic. She was extremely proud of me for wanting to study biology and was one of the few people to be proud of me for doing it. (I got emotional just to remember her cheering when i graduated). My english teacher in Middle and HS. He was a really brave man to be gay in a chatholic repressed school (that didnt fire him because back then not a lot of people could teach english). He was a really good guy that encouraged us to watch movies or listen to music in english. Many made fun of him for being so cheerful (and gay) but he was awesome and didnt let it stop him.

What You Eat Affects Tumors: Diet May Slow Cancer Growth

A new study finds cutting off cells’ supplies of lipids can slow the growth of tumors in mice. In recent years, there has been some evidence that dietary interventions can help to slow the growth of tumors. A new study from MIT, which analyzed two different diets in mice, reveals how those diets affect cancer cells, and offers an explanation for why restricting calories may slow tumor growth.

For this MIT couple, cancer research is the family business

Organic chemistry classes can create all sorts of memories, but few as lasting and meaningful as those of Alfred Singer ’68 and Dinah (Schiffer) Singer ’69. Since meeting while taking 5.41 in 1965—and graduating from MIT with degrees in biology (Dinah) and philosophy with a minor in biology (Al)—they have built an enduring marriage and influential careers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), contributing to major advancements in the understanding and treatment of cancer.
