Smoking Rate Falls to 15 Percent: CDC: TUESDAY.

U .S. Smoking Rate Falls to 15 Percent: CDC: – TUESDAY, Sept. 1, 2015 – – The U.S. Smoking cigarettes rate continues to decline, with just over 15 % of adults reporting they’re current smokers, a fresh government survey reveals. That’s down from nearly 17 % in 2014 and almost 18 % in 2013. The falloff reflects a continuing decline that started in 2010 after a decade of no improvement against smoking, the U.S. Tuesday Centers for Disease Control and Avoidance reported. Higher tobacco taxes, difficult anti-smoking text messages and smoke-free laws that ban smoking from indoor and outdoor areas look like dissuading even hard-core, heavily addicted smokers from ongoing the habit, said Patricia Folan, director of the Center for Tobacco Control at North Shore-LIJ Health System in Great Neck, N.Y.

Stadtmauer, M.D.: Brief Survey: Chimeric Antigen Receptor T Cells against CD19 for Multiple Myeloma Transduction of autologous T cells to express CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptors is a promising immunotherapeutic strategy for the treatment of B-cell cancers. Multiple myeloma is usually a B-lineage cancer that is reported to express CD19 infrequently6; hence, CD19 isn’t generally regarded a valid immunotherapeutic focus on in multiple myeloma.
