Klubo-Gwiezdzinska obtained her degrees from Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz and Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, Poland. She received a ThyCa grant to study ‘The part of the translocator proteins in the thyroid malignancy response to treatment.’ Her project will concentrate on the molecular mechanisms underlying thyroid cancer tumor response to radioiodine therapy and the ability to predict which tumors will be resistant to standard treatment. Dr. Klubo-Gwiezdzinska will explore whether expression of the mitochondrial membrane translocator protein correlates with tumor response to radiation in vitro and whether TSPO expression can affect thyroid cancer cell response to radiation in vivo.Here are some queries and answers on the controversy: Q: Does the health care legislation costs promote ‘mercy killing,’ or euthanasia? A: No. Q: After that what’s all the fuss about? A: A provision inside your home bill written by Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., would allow Medicare to pay doctors for voluntary guidance periods that address end-of-life problems. The conversations between doctor and patient would include living wills, making a close relative or a reliable friend your wellbeing care proxy, learning about hospice as a choice for the terminally ill, and information about pain medications for people suffering chronic discomfort. The sessions would be protected every five years, more often if someone is gravely ill. Q: Is anything required? Monsignor Charles Fahey, 76, a Catholic priest who is chairman of the panel of the National Council on Aging, a nonprofit advocacy and program group, says no.
