62% is a big percentage. More proof olive oil is a good addition to all of our diets:
I apologize for not posting more here at HWC; I recently traveled to Iowa City to undergo a stem cell transplant at the University of Iowa Cancer Center.
My expertise is blood cancer, specifically multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer). But I follow therapy innovation for other blood cancers, too; often the same drugs–sometimes in a different combination or with a tweak here or there–work for myeloma, too.
The researchers involved call this breakthrough a “game-changer for drug development.” The applications in oncology are countless:
I just heard from a consulting company I’ve worked with in the past. They are offering $100 for anyone that has–or has had–head or neck cancer to take a short survey over the phone.
Good news. $10,000,000 can make a real difference when its focused like this. I can’t think of a more important area to research.
How safe are artificial sweeteners? I read another article on the subject today. So many questions from cancer survivors about it.
Many of us watched with hopeful wonder as 60 Minutes reported on an innovative biologic solid tumor cancer therapy Sunday evening. But is it as good as it seems?
The New York Times continues to be the best and brightest remaining light for good national journalism. I can’t speak to your politics; I’m impressed with the depth and breadth of the medical writing. I don’t see that as political.
I always knew that chemobrain was real. Years of continuous multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer) therapy left my mind clouded and me grasping for words during speech that now seemed just out of reach.
If only it could be this easy: using specially designed nano tubes to help diagnose and battle cancer; a twofer!
Looking for an independent, reliable reference site about cancer nutrition? I like this one:
Late last year I was asked to review a new book, In Your Hands: New Hope for People with Chronic Medical Conditions. I’ve been busy, so I set the lengthy paperback aside. This weekend I discovered it underneath some files. I don’t agree with the author’s premise, but the book is fascinating.
Reading this, I’m reminded of imagining flying cars and jet packs back when I was a kid. How can British scientists arbitrarily pick a date like 2050 for the eradication of cancer?
I’ve been seeing this news all over the internet. I’m concerned that the study size was too small (18), and the model and executions were flawed. Still, the premise makes perfect sense:
Most of you have probably heard about the untimely death of ESPN groundbreaking broadcaster, Stuart Scott. Pattie and I were curious about the type of cancer he had; the media wasn’t focused on that. WNCN in North Carolina ran a clip about it. Turns out he had cancer of the appendix.
The FDA just approved yet another new, late stage melanoma therapy, nivolumab. That makes a record, mind blowing seven new FDA approved drugs since 2011.
Its been almost seven years since I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. I’ve been receiving ongoing treatment ever since.
Easy to follow explanation for why drug prices are so high in United States as compared to other countries. Here are several excerpts from this important Medscape Today article:
As promised, I’ve been researching the safety and efficacy of enyzme supplements for cancer patients. The news is mixed. From what I’ve been reading they seem relatively safe. But do they help? Or maybe the questions should be, “Help what?”
