Androgen deprivation therapy
 
04:33
https://www.andrologyaustralia.org/reproductive-problems/testosterone/ Androgen deprivation therapy is a treatment for advanced prostate cancer. If the prostate cancer is aggressive and has spread to other parts of the body, the standard treatment is removal of the male hormones which make the tumour grow. This treatment is called androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). ADT doesn't cure the cancer but it may help to keep the unwanted effects of the disease 'in check' for a period of time. The timing of starting ADT is a matter for judgement. Because of the significance of the side effects of ADT, many of which increase over time, and since there is little survival benefit from starting early rather than later, the issue is often balancing the risks of side-effects against the unwanted effects of the disease. What is androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), formerly called hormone therapy? The growth of normal prostate cells and prostate cancer cells relies on male hormones (androgens), the most important of which is testosterone. ADT acts by either stopping testosterone production or by blocking the action of testosterone, and its active form dihydrotestosterone (DHT), on the cells and tissues. What are the side-effects of ADT? Most men having ADT will have reduced libido (a lack of interest in sexual activity) and some trouble with getting or keeping erections. Other common side-effects include: - hot flushes -tiredness and sweating - gradual decrease in body hair - reduced bone substance and muscle strength, which worsen over time - cognitive changes such as changes in how well the memory works and difficulty with doing more than one thing at a time - liver function may be affected if taking tablet forms of ADT - some men gain weight and have some breast development and/or nipple soreness.

Canadian surgical first to remove cancer from the liver performed at LHSC
 
02:03
A new surgical option to remove cancer from the liver has been performed for the first time in Canada at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC). On April 23 Dr. Roberto Hernandez-Alejandro, surgeon, LHSC, completed the first of a two stage surgery to remove cancer from the liver. The second stage of the surgery was completed May 1. Formally called an associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for stage hepatectomy, or ALPPS procedure, the surgical first is that both stages of the hepatectomy, or removal of the liver, are completed in one week to ensure that cancer does not spread to other parts of the liver.

Outsmart Your Cancer
 
04:56
-----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- Some experts believe this treatment may outperform every other cancer treatment that exists! Robert tried it and cured Stage Four stomach cancer Robert was 54 years old when he was diagnosed with Stage Four stomach cancer. The cancer had metastasized, or spread, to his bones, his liver and his lymphatic system. Doctors told him they couldn't cure the cancer but might be able to help him live a little longer. They recommended four aggressive chemotherapy drugs plus radiation, right away. -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- But Robert couldn't stand the idea of spending his last months enduring harsh treatments that would leave him feeling (and looking) worse than he already did. Instead, he wanted an alternative cancer therapy. And when he discovered this treatment was completely free of side effects, he decided to try it. Two months later, Robert returned for a stomach scan. The doctor couldn't believe what he saw: The tumor had shrunk 39 percent. And other tests revealed the cancer in his liver was completely gone! Six months after that, Robert's stomach cancer had vanished. Even the bone and lymphatic cancer disappeared! Amazed, the doctor declared his Stage Four stomach cancer "in remission." More than two years later, Robert is still cancer-free. -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- If you or a loved one ever needs this amazing treatment to cure cancer, it is readily available and surprisingly affordable. What's more, it may be the easiest-to-use cancer treatment on the planet! Cure virtually any cancer with an amazing liquid that you drink! That's right, the cancer treatment that cured Stage Four cancer is nothing more than a liquid that you drink. Instead of dramatically changing your diet or swallowing a bunch of pills, all you do is mix a little non-toxic liquid with water and drink it several times throughout the day. It's that easy. -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- Hundreds of patients have used this amazing liquid to send their cancers into remission. And many of these patients learned the secrets of getting and using this liquid from alternative cancer treatment expert Tanya Harter Pierce. Tanya has spent seven years studying how to properly use this liquid treatment to cure cancer. She is sought after by doctors the world over. She has shared her discoveries with countless cancer patients on the phone and in radio interviews. Now for the very first time, Tanya has revealed how you can get this treatment and use it at home to cure yourself or a loved one in Outsmart Your Cancer. The secrets inside have helped cancer patients use this liquid to cure virtually every kind of cancer: prostate, breast, liver, brain, kidney or colon cancer, even America's deadliest cancer— lung cancer. -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- Arch's lung cancer, tonsil cancer and neck cancer vanish! "I credit Outsmart Your Cancer with what seems to be a cure of my three cancers: lung, tonsil and neck. The section of the book dealing with [this liquid cancer treatment] and a recommendation by a doctor caused me to order and take this material. I was given a 15% chance of living by a panel of oncologists (cancer specialists); to date I have survived for more than three years with no evidence of cancer in repeated CAT-scans." — Arch, cancer survivor Pam's aggressive breast tumor gone! Pam's doctors told her she would die a "horrible death" if she refused their orders to get a mastectomy. But not only did Pam keep her breasts, she got her tumor to disappear at home. -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- "A doctor burst through the door after he read [my ultrasound], and he told me this was the fastest-growing, most aggressive cancer he had ever seen. It had spread all through my breast. Outsmart Your Cancer was what I depended on to get me through this situation and know what to do with [this liquid cancer treatment]... Everything I needed was there and it was a Godsend. The last scans that I had... they couldn't find any cancer." — Pam, cancer survivor -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/----- John's melanoma disappears! John had surgery to remove melanoma from his back. After one of John's lymph nodes tested positive for cancer, his oncologist told him he needed interferon or the cancer would spread. "My oncologist... told me originally that I would have a 35% chance of [melanoma] going to internal organs through my bloodstream, and after the Interferon it would only go down to about 33%. I would be bedridden for up to a year. So I went for [the liquid cancer treatment]. I've been taking that for a year now. My last test did not find any cancer." — John, cancer survivor -----http://fbee3g-1n-1rd2a4dahbz2nsv0.hop.clickbank.net/-----

Broccoli Juice: The cure to cancer Cancer Broccoli contains Vitamin E & glucoraphanin, which with the body processes into the anti-cancer compound sulforaphane. This compound rids the body H. pylori, a bacterium found to highly increase the risk of gastric cancer. Furthermore, broccoli contains indole-3-carbinol, a powerful antioxidant compound and anti-carcinogen found to not only hinder the growth of breast, cervical and prostate cancer, but also boosts liver function. Immune System One cup of broccoli bolsters the immune system with a large dose of beta-carotene. Trace minerals, such as zinc and selenium, further act to strengthen immune defense actions Diet Aid: Broccoli is high in fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating. Furthermore, a cup of broccoli has as much protein as a cup of rice or corn with half the calories. Also it helps to lower blood pressure as well.. I love the stuff!!

Tumor growth and Metastasis in Breast cancer
 
13:09
Tumor growth is the common denominator of all cancer epidemiological functions. It drives them and shape their manifestations. I described it in other presentations I describe now an important and unique study of tumor growth and metastasis by Koscielny and coworkers. It established the relationship between tumor growth and metastasis. Yet their data provide more insight than meets the eye, which I shall now describe. It seems plausible that any tumor observed at diagnosis, is accompanied by hidden metastases. Many evolve extremely slowly and even remain dormant There is a perfect correlation between tumor diameter and metastasis at diagnosis All cumulative curves level off. There is a good correlation between tumor diameter and terminal probability of each level. Conclusion; Tumor and metastases are coordinated and evolve as one system Cancer is more than just a tumor. It is an interaction between organism and tumor. Cancer is a dynamic system in which organism and tumor interact. Tumor growth and metastasis are driven by a virus and controlled by the organism (discussed in other presentations)

Cancer Breakthrough? Liver Nutrient Selectively Kills Cancer Cells
 
04:30
Lithocholic acid (LCA) is a liver bile acid that has the ability to selectively kill cancer cells while not affecting normal cells. It works by causing cancer cell mitochondria to self-destruct. LCA also activates the vitamin D receptor site. It prevents whole tumor growth and slows down the development of metastases. In tests it has been shown to work on brain cancer cells and on breast cancer cells. We clearly need more work to see if this is a good treatment in human beings. Dr. Saputo's Cancer Health Assessment Once you have cancer you want to know what you can do to get rid of it and keep it gone!

Dr. Julie Gralow on Treating Breast Cancer Bone Metastases
 
02:11
Julie R. Gralow, MD, Director, Breast Medical Oncology, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, discusses the recent changes occurring in the anti-osteoclastic targeted therapies used to treat breast cancer bone metastases. The bisphosphonates zoledronic acid (Zometa) and Pamidronate (Aredia) have traditionally been used to treat breast cancer bone metastases. These agents work by blocking the cells that cause bone destruction, which prevents the loss of bone mass. Recently the agent denosumab (Xgeva), a RANK-ligand inhibitor, has become available. In comparison trials, at new diagnosis, between denosumab and bisphosphonates, denosumab proved superior at reducing skeletal-related events and improving other quality of life measures. Gralow advocates for using denosumab in the first-line, when appropriate, or in the second-line after progression on zoledronic acid. Denosumab can be delivered subcutaneously with fewer concerns over serum creatinine levels or first infusion reactions. With the addition of new agents there are now multiple choices for metastatic breast cancer. Trials have now begun to investigate dosing schedules to optimize delivery. The OPTIMIZE-2 trial examined bisphosphonate dosing schedules to determine if they should be given monthly, or every 3 months. Providing therapy every 3 months would reduce many of the adverse events associated with the treatment, such as osteonecrosis of the jaw.

Dr. Rotkowitz Describes Challenges Facing Immunotherapy
 
01:08
Michael Rotkowitz, MD, medical oncologist, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Eastern Regional Medical Center, says that one of the main challenges and a leading goal of immunotherapy research is measuring response to justify the administration. The scrutiny surrounding the immunotherapy sipuleucel-T (Provenge) stems from the fact that there is no tool to monitor response. Despite this scrutiny, other immunotherapies are also being researched for prostate cancer, including ipilimumab, GVAX, and PROSTAVAC. Ipilimumab is being studied in a phase III trial compared to placebo in treatment-resistant metastatic prostate cancer patients. GVAX was examined in a phase III trial comparing it to docetaxel plus prednisone for men with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). The trial showed that the toxicity profile of GVAX was favorable to the combination arm but survival was not significantly improved. The examination of PROSTVAC for asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic CRPC is underway in a phase III trial and uses pox viral vectors to stimulate the immune system.
