Bacteria shrink tumors in humans, dogs (AAAS)
For more than a decade, cancer geneticist Bert Vogelstein of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, and colleagues have investigated the soil -dweller Clostridium novyi, a relative of the microbe responsible for botulism. Oxygen is scarce inside tumors, and these bacteria “love areas of low oxygen,” says Saurabh Saha, a cancer researcher at BioMed Valley Discoveries Inc. in Kansas City, Missouri, and a co-author on the new study, which appears online in Science Translational Medicine. “They grow and divide and kill the cancer cells,” Saha says. The researchers hypothesize that the bacteria release enzymes that destroy the tumor cells, and then they feast on the debris.
Saha and colleagues injected C. novyi spores into the tumors of 16 pet dogs whose owners had run out of options for treating them. In six of the dogs, the tumors shrank or disappeared, and the tumors stopped growing in another five animals. Several dogs needed surgery to clear the wounds as the tumors disintegrated.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat.

When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves.

I am not at risk of being…
