The e-books are now more popular than their earlier printed versions, as unlike the hardcopies the e-books cost much lesser and are convenient for storage at home or while packing for any tour. But the PDF format of e-books may not be compatible with all e-reader devices available in the market now, which is a problem that can be amicably solved by transforming the PDF files into HTML ones while retaining their words and illustrations same to same as their original hardcopies.

PUB HTML5 has got sufficient expertise in publishing online and offline digital reading materials with the help of their own digital publishing software; which include not only e-books and magazines for the interested readers, but also shopping catalogues and brochures of different companies for the shopaholics. But recently they have introduced more advanced HTML5 digital publishing software for catalogs, magazines to benefit all the e-book readers.

This special flip pages digital publishing software has got many benefits for its users:

    This software is perfectly compatible with any mobile devices like Android phones, iPad or iPhone, apart from the usual desktops or laptops; hence all the online readers can download and use it.
    The website of PUB HTML5 offers to download this software adapted for both Windows and Mac; hence everyone can comfortably make the best use of it.
    Free trial version of this software is available so that the customers can test its convenience for them before actually buying it; also a free plan for HTML5 flip pages software is offered to the users where many basic functions can be fulfilled, somewhat like the paid plans where some more facilities are available as well.
    The lively forms of animations in HTML format make the e-books more interesting and attractive for the readers, which is totally absent in PDF form.
    HTML5 flip pages software provides the facility to buy products directly from the catalogues made with it, thus saves the customers from searching for those products in the related commercial sites.

Therefore, any interested authors can now easily download HTML5 flip pages software, available on the official website of PUB HTML5 http://pubhtml5.com/.

Breakthrough Discovery Provides New Hope for Cancer Patients Fighting Infection


Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) July 18, 2014

NFCR supported scientist Laurence Cooper, M.D., Ph.D., and his team at the MD Anderson Cancer Center have engineered a novel treatment for killing fungal infections that are often lethal to cancer patients with weakened immune systems.

“Too many patients die from Aspergillus infections, especially patients who undergo bone marrow transplantation,” said Dr. Cooper. Among bone marrow transplant patients, the estimated survival rate after invasive Aspergillus infection is only 15 to 40 percent. “It is clear that a new approach to this infection is desperately needed.”

Thanks to the work of Dr. Cooper and colleagues at MD Anderson, and with the help of funding from the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR), that new approach may have arrived.

Previous work by Dr. Cooper’s team, supported in part by NFCR, had successfully re-directed T cells (the white blood cells responsible for recognizing and destroying dangerous foreign cells) to treat patients with leukemia and lymphoma.

The technique involves bioengineering “chimeric antigen receptors” (CARs) – special molecules that act as “homing antennas,” which researchers can customize and attach to T cells – to direct T cells’ cell-killing abilities towards specific, pre-selected targets, including on leukemia and lymphoma cells. By taking some of the patient’s own T cells from the blood stream and genetically attaching these tumor-specific CARs, and then infusing engineered T cells back to the patients, Dr. Cooper’s team has helped unleashed the power of human immune cells’ killing machinery to fight these patients’ cancer.

Now Dr. Cooper and his team have successfully applied the same technique to killing Aspergillus cells by engineering human T cells to recognize a sugar molecule on this fungus. This new approach of targeting sugar molecules could be used to target other dangerous pathogens as well.

“We are extremely proud of what Dr. Cooper and his team have been able to achieve, and the benefits of their research are multiplying,” said Franklin Salisbury, Jr., President of the National Foundation for Cancer Research. “Funding from NFCR over the past decade has helped Dr. Cooper to bring this fantastic therapeutic approach to life, with life-saving benefits not only to cancer patients, but to a potentially much larger patient group as well.”

Dr. Laurence Cooper has received NFCR support since 2003. Dr. Cooper’s findings were published in the July 7 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
