本集内容

Promising UK ovarian cancer drug trialled 英国对治疗卵巢癌新药物进行试验

Fish skin used to treat burns in Brazil 巴西医生用罗非鱼皮治疗烧伤

文字稿

The trial run by the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden aimed to test the safety of the new drug known as ONX 0801. It involved just 15 women – all with advanced ovarian cancer. The result – tumours shrank significantly in almost half of the women over the course of five weeks. But the scientists are urging caution, they say it was a very small study and it’s too early to know whether the success could be replicated in a larger group of patients.

英国癌症研究院和英国皇家马斯登医院共同开展了旨在测试新药“ONX 0801”安全性的试验。此次试验的参与者仅为15名患卵巢癌晚期的女性。试验结果显示,有近一半的女性在接受治疗五周后其肿瘤体积大幅度缩小。但科学家们敦促人们应慎重行事,他们说这个研究的规模很小,而且要想得知该试验能否在患者人数更多的情况下取得同样的成功还为时过早。

This Brazilian fisherman’s catch is not only for food, but medicine too! The skin of a tilapia, a common freshwater fish, is cleaned carefully and preserved. This is because tilapia skin is a potent burn remedy. The skin is made into strips and used to dress wounds. The method, though unorthodox, has proved to be both effective and affordable.

这位巴西渔夫捕到的鱼不仅会被人食用,而且还会被当成药物使用。罗非鱼是常见的淡水鱼,工作人员把鱼皮仔细清洗并保存好。这是因为罗非鱼皮是能够有效缓解烧伤的良方。罗非鱼皮被加工成长条状以包扎伤口。虽然这并不属于传统疗法,但实践证明它既有效又平价。
