Report: Hugo Chavez's cancer at 'end stage'
2012-05-30 17:56:00
This reporter has been told that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that has "entered the end stage". The information and the quote come from a highly respected source close to Chavez and who is in a position to know his medical condition and history. This source says the prognosis is dire and that Chavez is now not expected to live "more than a couple of months at most." Chavez is running for re-elec tion in Venezuela but several sources--including the one who revealed the exact kind of cancer-- have told me that they believe it is doubtful the dictator will live to see the results.

Google algorithm proves extremely useful in cancer study
2012-05-21 19:30:00
If you’ve ever had a problem with some of Google’s frivolity, it’ll all be forgiven after hearing this: researchers have used Google’s webpage algorithm to find cancer biomarkers, which can lead to early diagnosis and better treatment. Recently, researchers at Germany’s Dresden University of Technology ranked about 20,000 proteins by genetic relevance to the progression of pancreatic cancer and found seven that can help them diagnose the aggressiveness of each individual case. This leads to more effective and personalized treatment. These biomarkers were found by employing the Google webpage algorithm, which Google uses to decide in which order to present your search results. The algorithm is complex and involves many factors, but one key factor is the amount of interconnectivity a page has. A webpage with no other pages linking to it and no social media interaction seems less important to Google. In that vein, researchers helped narrow their protein...

The Tumor Resector: My April Cancer Peep
2012-04-30 20:32:00
"Dr. Phil" Two jokesters entered my room to remove my three epineurals, which had been inserted to control pain resulting from my cancer surgery. The duo always bantered and this time was no different, as they bet on the size of the gape and number of stitches needed. I loved their jokes, however sadistic, and they relished my reception. Drs. Phil and Whidterschneidmannhaus were orthopedic oncology surgical fellows, working under Dr. M&M, a limb-sparing specialist and pioneer who always wore suits. According to Dr. Phil, he and Whidterschneidmannhaus didn?t have time to read the newspaper or keep up with the Redskins, a sin had they been in any other profession. Dr. Phil was present at my surgical consult and bone biopsy that would lead to a Ewing?s sarcoma diagnosis. He was the first person I spoke to after waking up from surgery. A week later he had to lower my leg from traction, the most painful seconds of my life, and then convince me that twenty milligrams of OxyContin ...

Risk of suicide and fatal heart attack immediately following a cancer diagn
2012-04-05 17:23:00
People who are diagnosed with cancer have a markedly increased risk of suicide and cardiovascular death during the period immediately after being given the diagnosis. This has been shown in a new study from Karolinska Institutet, published in the prestigious scientific journal The New England Journal of Medicine. Being diagnosed and living with a life-threatening illness such as cancer inevitably causes great distress and may result in other health problems in addition to the disease itself. Previous studies have shown that cancer patients are at higher risk of suicide and cardiovascular disease, which, up to now, has mainly been ascribed to the emotional strain of living with the potentially fatal disease and the often physically demanding cancer treatment. Newly published data on patients with prostate cancer suggest, however, that being given the diagnosis may, in itself, be associated with a marked increase in the risk of stress-related disease and death. In this study, pub...

The War Rages: My March Cancer Peep
2012-03-30 21:57:00
Alexander Jack Green I received an email in September from two sisters, Sandful and Sandless. They had gone to high school with JD and knew about my cancer journeys. Sandless? son, Alex, was approaching his two-year cancer-free anniversary of Wilms? tumor, a childhood cancer of the kidneys. The Sand sisters invited me to participate in their special event, ?Alex's 3rd Annual Walk Toward Wellness 2011.? On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in October, I joined the large close-knit Sand family and friends at Burke Lake Park in celebration of Alex. If I hadn?t been told that Alex?s mother was Sandless and his aunt Sandful, I would not have known who shared more genes with him. Their joyous tears and elation revealed a similar love for 7-year-old Alex. I met the anniversary boy. Through a likely combination of not remembering his cancer, not understanding, and not wanting it to define him, he was reserved. I approached him as a football fan instead of a fellow cancer survivor, admiring ...

IsraScience: New weapon against pancreatic and prostate cancer
2012-03-28 15:16:00
IsraScience: New weapon against pancreatic and prostate cancer: This new medical breakthrough shows promise, although it?s still going through the clinical testing rounds. The compound, dubbed TL-118, comes from the labs of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It?s now undergoing its second phase of tests after proving effective against pancreatic tumors first in mice and then in more than 100 humans. Chief operating officer Dan Goldstaub explains that the company?s approach is based on a relatively new understanding of how cancerous tumors grow. Through an abnormal process called angiogenesis, the tumors ?recruit? blood vessels from neighboring tissue. Anti-angiogenic therapy is a revolutionary approach aimed at disrupting this process by blocking the tumor?s blood supply. ?Theoretically, we can treat all solid tumors this way,? Goldstaub tells ISRAEL21c. ?However, some tumors are more susceptible to angiogenesis inhibition, and each tumor uses different mechanisms of angiogenesis....

Moffitt Cancer Center Researchers Link Stigma To Depression Among Lung Canc
2012-03-23 18:17:00
Studying the role of social stigma in depression for lung cancer patients, researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Fla., have found that depression can be heightened by a lung cancer patient?s sense of social rejection, internalized shame and social isolation. These factors may contribute to depression at rates higher than experienced by patients with other kinds of cancer. Their study was published in a recent issue of Psycho-Oncology (21:2012). ?To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to examine the relationship of perceived stigma to depressive symptomology in lung cancer patients,? said study co-author Paul B. Jacobsen, Ph.D., Moffitt?s associate center director for Population Sciences. ?Given its strong association with tobacco use, lung cancer is commonly viewed as a preventable disease. Consequently, patients may blame themselves for developing lung cancer and feel stigmatized. Even lung cancer patients who have never smoked often felt - accurately ...
