The current thinking is that cancer is caused by an alteration of the DNA at a cellular level. Dr. Revici concedes that this might indeed play a role, but he feels that it is neither the only nor the most important cause. Oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes control how cells divide, playing an important but not exclusive role in the evolution of cancer. Proto-oncogenes exist in all cells, and may be converted into active oncogenes that promote unregulated cell growth when damaged by free radicals, toxins or viruses. On the other side of the coin, tumor suppressor genes down-regulate cell growth, but are also susceptible to damage by the same influences as the proto-oncogenes, in which case they lose their ability to prevent unregulated cell growth. Thus, a lack of homeostasis at the cellular level, due either to damaged proto-oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes, can set the stage for the unregulated cell growth that characterizes cancer.

Transcription, Translation and Genetic Code

The path of the electrons is shown with the green dotted line. ATP synthetase (red) has two components: a proton channel (allowing diffusion of protons down a concentration gradient, from the intermembrane space to the matrix), and a catalytic component to catalyze the formation of ATP.

The rRNA and tRNA both function in protein synthesis

Introducing nucleic acids into mammalian cells is a crucial step to elucidate biochemicalpathways, and to modify gene expression and cellular development in immortalized cells,primary cells, and stem cells. Current transfection technologies are time consuming and limitedby the size of genetic cargo, the inefficient introduction of test molecules into large populationsof target cells, and the cytotoxicity of the techniques. We have developed a novel method ofintroducing genes and biomolecules into tens of thousands of mammalian cells through an arrayof aligned hollow carbon nanotubes, manufactured by template-based nanofabrication processes,to achieve rapid high efficiency transfer with low cytotoxicity. The utilization of carbonnanotube arrays for gene transfection overcomes molecular weight limits of current technologiesand can be adapted to deliver drugs or proteins in addition to nucleic acids. The template-basednanofabrication processes used to manufacture carbon nanotube-based arrays and recent genetransfection applications will be described, concluding with recent findings suggesting that thelength of the exposed nanotubes has an effect on transfection efficiencies.

Our work with Metabolic Typing puts us in a unique position to observe relationships between particular disease conditions and the different Metabolic Types. A Metabolic Type can be understood as the characteristic way in which an individual produces and processes energy. By addressing the individual at this fundamental level, we are able to match up their metabolism with an appropriate diet that will help to protect the body from the development of the common degenerative diseases. This approach is in line with, and a contemporary restatement of, the traditional naturopathic orientation to healthcare, where the individual as a whole is addressed, rather than just their specific disease condition. The survey that is presented below shows a direct correlation between diabetes and cancer and specific Metabolic Types in our own patient population. It reinforces the concept that different dietary approaches are needed for individuals to regain or maintain optimal health, and provides important pointers as to how to use dietary intervention to prevent such diseases from occurring in the first place. Before we look at the details and implications of our patient survey, we will first set the stage with a general overview of the principles underlying Metabolic Typing.
