Cancer Detection Through Biomarkers


Ovarian cancer is currently the most aggressive cancer of the reproductive system and one of the top five cancers affecting women. As one out of every 75 women will develop ovarian cancer, it is imperative to detect the onset of early manifestation. Original screening methods rely on the presence of symptoms, but a simple blood test may make diagnosis possible for those who have not reached later stages. Developed by a team at the University College London, the test for ovarian cancer monitors any changes in CA125, a biomarker. With higher traces in tumor cells compared to any other part of the body, CA 125 suggests that it could be used for early detection.

Previous efforts involved only checking whether the level of CA125 was above or below a set threshold, which proved highly inaccurate because an increase in CA125 can be caused by many other conditions such as liver…

Bible-Bashing Barbarism

OJB's Blog

When I start writing these blog entries I am usually thinking about what would be a catchy title for them. The title is usually something a little bit quirky but still relevant to the subject under discussion and should occur somewhere in the blog post, preferably at the end.

The subject for this post is religious teaching in schools, a topic which has already featured on several occasions in this blog. My opinion on it has gone in the opposite direction to many other opinions because I have actually become more extreme in my opposition.

The latest chapter in the Bible in schools saga involves a parent by the…

As Lady Liberty weeps


There seems to be a great deal of individuals in this country that do not even remotely understand the concept of liberty and how it pertains to each individual.

How many of you out there are aware that our currency once said “mind your business” on it?
Yes, it actually said that, that was the mindset of the Founders. Not to have religious groups attacking citizens over their books version of what is or is not a civil union.–Which I fully support between two consenting adults, regardless of their sexual identity.

I have never had a gay or transgender person come to my door and try to hand me pamphlets and meet with them on Sunday.

Not once has a gay individual ever told me if I didn’t convert I was going to hell.

I’ve never heard of a homosexual crusade or anything of the sort through the ages.

One man can be seen getting in Paul’s face at the start of the video.

He looks terrified, doesn’t he? Dropped his nuts at the cruicial…
