Dying polar bear roams iceless land for food in 'soul-crushing' video
News ImageHeartbreaking footage of a starving polar bear desperately searching for food on iceless land highlights the real face of climate change, conservationists say. Photojournalist Paul Nicklen said his team were moved totears as they captured the struggling animals battle to stay aliveon Canadas Baffin Island last summer. The soul-crushing scene, captured by marine conservationists SeaLegacy, shows the emaciated bear searching an abandoned Inuit camp for sustenance. My entire SeaLegacy team waspushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear, explained Mr Nicklen. Its a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. No energy. Its a slow, painful death. Polar bears are listed as vulnerabledue to a loss of sea ice habitat from climate change Credit: AP When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. The simple truth is this - if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. But there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth-our home-first. His colleague Cristina Mittermeier said it was one of the hardest shoots we have ever had to do. Through tears, we were able to capture this footage with the hope of awakening people to the realities of a climate change future, she said. Polar bears are the poster child for climate change Credit: AP SeaLegacy said though it couldnt say with 100 per cent certainty what had caused the bear to starve to death, the group added: We do know that he didnt have any visible wounds and that he was not an old bear. Many of you have asked whether we could have saved this individual bear, but the hard truth is that he was on his last legs and his muscles had atrophied beyond repair. It would also have been illegal to feed him, to approach him, or to do anything to ease his pain. The group warned an increasing number of polar bears are likely to die in this way as a result of our warming climate. As global temperatures rise, the amount of multi-year sea ice in the Arctic shrinks. Polar bears depend on that ice to travel large distances and to hunt for their food. Without sea ice this will become a common scene across the Arctic, they said. The World Wildlife Fund says polar bears are vulnerable due to a loss of sea ice habitat from climate change. A study published last year by University of Washington researchers found that polarbears across the Arctic are facing a shorter sea ice season, a surface they dependon for hunting, travelling and breeding.

Huntingtons breakthrough as early trial shows injection may stop disease
News ImageHuntingtons disease patients have been offered new hope after a trial showed a groundbreaking genetic treatment appears to slow down the illness. Current medications only treat symptoms rather than treating the underlying condition which gradually eats away at the brain, robbing people of movement, speech and dignity. But a small trial of 46 men and women showed that the new drug silences the genetic mutation which causes Huntingtons. Prof Sarah Tabrizi, director of University College Londons Huntingtons Disease Centre who led the phase 1 trial, said the results were beyond what Id ever hoped, and said it eventually may be possible to stop the disease before irreversible damage to the brain had occurred. The results of this trial are of ground-breaking importance for Huntingtons disease patients and families, she said. "For the first time we have the potential, we have the hope, of a therapy that one day may slow or prevent Huntington's disease." The treatment prevents the production of a dangerous protein which kills brain cells Huntingtons is an incurable degenerative disease caused by a single defect in the huntingtin gene which turns a usually helpful protein into a lethal brain cell killer. It affects around 10,000 people in Britain. The drug, called Ionis-HTTRx, works by intercepting a messenger molecule and destroying it before the harmful protein can be made, effectively silencing the effects of the mutant gene. It effectively stops Huntington's in its tracks. Although the trial was too small, and not long enough, to show whether patients clinical symptoms improved, it showed the drug was safe, well tolerated by patients and crucially it reduced the levels of huntingtin in the brain. This is probably the most significant moment in the history of Huntingtons since the gene, added Prof Tabrizi. To deliver the drug to the brain, it has to be injected into the fluid around the spine once a month using a four-inch needle. Thetreatment could potentially be adapted to target other incurable brain disorders such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons. FAQ | Dementia The Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche has paid $45 million for the rights to the drug, and is expected to launch a major trial to test the clinical effectiveness of the drug, while trial data is sue to be published shortly. Charities welcome the results, saying it was of groundbreaking importance to families affected by Huntington's. This is a great day for the Huntington's disease community, said Chief Executive Cath Stanley. This is a big step forward in Huntington's disease research and although there is still someway to go before the overall results are known, this is a big step forward. Prof Roger Barker, Professor of Clinical Neuroscience and Honorary Consultant Neurologist, at the University of Cambridge, said:We were involved in this trial, here in Cambridge with 6 patients. I would say that the results are encouraging as it shows delivering therapeutic agents of this type is feasible and well tolerated and the treatment has done what it said it would- namely drop the relevant protein levels in the CSF. The question is whether this is enough to make a difference to patients and their clinical course and that we will have to wait for bigger trials. However some experts urged caution until the research was published. Prof Tara Spires-Jones, UK Dementia Research Institute Programme Lead and Deputy Director, Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh, said:The details of this study have not been peer-reviewed or published yet, so the scientific community simply does not know yet how robust the findings are. "With that caveat in mind, the approach used in this trial has excellent potential to prevent Huntington's disease, and if the next stage of larger trials live up to their promise, this will be a breakthrough.
