This is the 1st demonstration that molecular tweezers work in a mammalian animal model, said Gal Bitan, a co-employee professor of neurology at UCLA and the senior author of the scholarly study. Importantly, no symptoms of toxicity were seen in the treated mice. The efficacy and toxicity outcomes support the mechanism of the molecular tweezer and suggest these are promising compounds for developing disease-modifying therapies for Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's and other disorders. Molecular tweezers are complex molecular compounds capable of binding to various other proteins.Without adequate pain control and personal privacy for the family, there is no dignity at the end of life for a cancer individual, says Viccars. In addition, the Society is working to make sure that patients have the proper to choose where they die. Currently, more than 55 per cent of Canadians die in a healthcare facility, although most ill people say they might rather die at home terminally. Because caring for dying family members very often results in emotional and financial burdens, the Canadian Cancer Society is also urging the federal government to make a national strategy that could include compassionate care benefits and a caregiver taxes benefit.
