Busy with work but still trying to keep updated…

I have been very busy with a translation that was due today, pant pant, so I have had to ignore all the stuff that has been piling up on my desktop in the past few days…studies screaming to be read, blog drafts clamoring to be finished…you get the picture. I have to ignore their pitiful little cries…but I could not ignore this juicy morsel: http://tinyurl.com/ngvc3q

A bell went off in my head…but, since I cannot remember the content of all of my posts (hundreds, by now!), I had to do a quick search of my blog to make sure that I hadn’t already posted about this study, a study on the synergy of curcumin and melphalan and on the ability of curcumin to overcome multidrug resistance. Well, I had. The original study was published in January 2009 in Chinese…in a Chinese journal. I posted about the English-translated abstract on July 2nd, 2009. If you would like to see what I wrote back then (not much, actually), click on http://tinyurl.com/l5j5ch

But this time there is a difference. It would appear, in fact, that the study has been translated into English…yaaay! Therefore, if I am able to get my hands on it AND if it has indeed been translated into a language that I am familiar with, I will write a report about it…sooooon, I hope!

  1. ciao Margaret,
    nice read, especially as I am awaiting my second autologous transplant and I am taking Curcumin, it might have an enhancing effect when I will be given the melphalan. I will have to ask if I need to quit taking C. during my hospital stay.
