OCTOBER 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 5 16-Year-Old Indian Origin Boy Finds a Way to Make a Deadly Form of Breast Cancer More Treatable A 16-year-old boy of Indian origin in the UK, Krtin Nithiyandam claims to have found a way to make a lethal form of breast cancer more treatable. It is called the triple negative breast cancer and it is considered deadly because it does not respond to drugs. It is a kind breast cancer that shows aggressive tumour behavior and poor prognosis. Usually, hormones like oestrogen and progesterone drive many forms of breast cancer. They get attached to the hormone receptors in the cancer cells and contribute to their growth. These receptors are basically proteins found in and on breast cells and they receive messages from hormones telling the cells to grow. When drugs such as tamoxifen are used during treatment, they block those hormones and inhibit growth of the disease. But such drugs are ineffective on triple negative breast cancer because these cancer cells don’t have any receptors. An exhausting combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy is required to eliminate this kind of cancer, which in turn reduce the chances of survival. Krtin, who moved to Surrey from India with his parents, thinks that he might have found a way of making the cancer respond to drugs. Triple negative cancer manifests in two forms, based on which some women respond to medicines while others don’t. One is the differentiated form, which produces healthy cells that are not very aggressive and grow and multiply slowly. The undifferentiated form makes the cells revert to a primitive form to never become recognizable breast tissue. They spread quickly and lead to tumour. “The prognosis for women with undifferentiated cancer isn’t very good so the goal is to turn the cancer back to a state where it can be treated. The ID4 (Inhibitor Of DNA Binding 4) protein actually stops undifferentiated stem cell cancers from differentiating so you have to block ID4 to allow the cancer to differentiate,” Krtin told The Telegraph, adding that he has found a way to silence the genes that produce ID4. He also discovered that chemotherapy is more effective when the activity of a tumour suppressor called Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) is increased. And that a combination of these treatments could be more successful than the traditional cure, which uses several drugs. This therapy treatment idea was shortlisted for The Big Bang Fair programme that recognises various young scientists across the UK for their ground-breaking research. This is not the first time that Krtin is receiving international recognition for his research in the field of medical science. Last year, he won a grand prize at the Google Science Fair for his test that might spot Alzheimer’s 10 years before it is diagnosed. www.indianmonthly.com.au

6 INDIAN MONTHLY | OCTOBER 2016 RMIT Indian Film Festival and Conference The love of Indian Cinema is not confined to any boundaries. Recently to the acknowledge the Indian Cinema, RMIT University did a curtain raiser for its Indian Film Festival starting from 1st December to 4th of December. This year the festival and conference theme is ‘Indian stories Australian screens.’ The university believes that this wide scholarship domain will enable multifarious discovery and debate will provide an engaging range of film and media. At the curtain raiser, latest movie Unindian staring Australian cricketer Brett Lee and Tanistha Chartterjee, directed by Melbourne based Anupam Sharma was screened on the day at Kaleide Theatre. Now a days it is widely seen that production of Indian Cinema in other nations is expanding. This sort of expansion is beneficial for both the producer country and India. In this kind of initiative, for Indians, it means there is an opportunity for them to learn cinematically about other societies and for these nation’s film program makers provides insights into a rich and vibrant culture and opportunities to engage with a rising Indian middle class market eager to experience other cultures in the context of their own popular filmic format. For the Indian diaspora in Australia it can be a way to connect with both. Australian Indian Business Council (AIBC) extended its support to the RMIT Indian Film Festival and Conference that will be starting officially from the 1st – 4th of December in Melbourne. www.indianmonthly.com.au

OCTOBER 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 7 Rashi Bajaj - An Ex-Infoscion Who Revived And Created a Rs.7 Crore Carpet Industry In A Small Town Maharashtra Police recently found bodies of four of the six people murdered in cold blood by a self-confessed medico, Santosh Pol. Satara Superintendent of Police Sandip Patil, who rushed to Wai town with colleagues, said that following the shocking revelations by Pol, police dug his farmhouse premises and found the remains of four bodies at various locations. Charged with kidnapping and murdering an ‘aanganwadi worker’ Mangal Jedhe, Pol admitted to committing a total of six murders, including that of a man, after administering them lethal overdose of some medicines, earning him the sobriquet ‘Dr. Death’. The 41-year-old Pol’s associate, nurse Jyoti Mandre, has also been arrested. Both have been sent to police custody by a court. The case has stunned Maharashtra. “We are trying to find out where the fifth victim’s body was disposed off and also one victim whose body was thrown into a water reservoir,“ Patil told the media on the stunning developments in the case. Among the victims were an orphan woman, Salma Shaikh, who was missing from January this year. Another, Vanita Gaikwad, belonged to a jeweller’s family and went missing in July 2006. A majority of the victims either worked with him or came in contact as patients. Though Patil did not specify the exact motive behind the killings, initial investigation pointed to be cheating his victims of their gold and more. “We shall investigate all the missing persons’ cases in and around Wai since 2003, the hospitals where he worked, question other patients and employees, tackle all possible angles,” Patil asserted. Meanwhile, a police team was busy digging Pol’s sprawling farmhouse land for possibly more bodies. Patil said that skeletal remains found would be sent for forensic analysis to match them with the missing persons. Pol, described as an ‘ElectroHomoeopath’, practiced in some local hospitals and at his farmhouse, 13 km on the outskirts of the quaint Wai town, at the base of the twin hill stations of Mahabaleshwar-Panchgani, around 175 km south of Mumbai. The medico’s alleged crimes came to light after police began to probe the suspicious disappearance of 49-yearold Mangal Jedhe, President of the Maharashtra Purva Prathmik Shikshika Sevika Sangh (MPPSSS), on June 16. “She had left Wai for Pune to attend to her daughter’s delivery but never reached there,” said MPPSSS general secretary Shaukat Pathan. Wai police officer Padmakar Ghanvat said investigations revealed that prior to leaving for Pune, she was in touch with Pol and both had a bitter fight when she threatened to reveal his activities. Pol has confessed that he kidnapped Jedhe from the Wai Bus Depot and eliminated her the following day by administering an overdose of a lethal medicine www.indianmonthly.com.au
