Cancer Research Trials | Cancer Research UK
Cancer research trials involve patients in medical research. They help us to understand cancer stages, cancer symptoms and develop drugs and treatments that will eventually enable us to cure cancer. We work with volunteers fighting cancer to test new therapy and make that breakthrough.

The Cancer Story you Haven’t Heard | Michaela Higgins | TEDxUCD
Speaking after her TEDxUCD 2016 talk Professor Michaela Higgins said, “We are seeing an exponential increase in cancer cases in the developing world as we improve the control of infant mortality rates and infectious diseases. 70% of all cancer deaths are occurring in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, yet nearly 90% of the $100 billion currently being used to treat cancers is spent in Europe, USA and Japan.” “As I outlined in my TEDxUCD 2016 talk to reduce this imbalance, and taking into account that most cancers have a lifestyle or environmental cause, we need to stop smoking, eat healthily and vaccinate against common cancer-causing viruses.” Prior to Professor Higgins current appointment, Michaela was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a Consultant Physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. While in Boston, Michaela was involved with the development of a small oncology service over an 18-month period, at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais in Haiti. This was with support from Partners in Health, a not-for-profit corporation working to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need, in Haiti and around the world. She is a member of Cancer Research UK’s Clinical Trials Awards and Advisory Committee and the Mater Hospital Lung Cancer Working Group. She serves on the UCD Clinical Research Centre Executive Committee. Michaela is enthusiastic about teaching the next generation of medical doctors, and is particularly interested in global oncology.

Chemotherapy - Prepping for 1st treatment in Northern Ireland
Dealing with cancer is such a personal journey. One way is not always the best way for someone else. I share my journey as insight for others, but in no way would ever force my decisions or beliefs to anyone. Cancer is a trial for those who have it and for those who help you through it. Every experience is so different and as I have learned inspiring. I hope too that I can inspire those I know and even those I don't know to come to an understanding that life is so much more and it is the way we approach our trials that makes us hopefully stronger and better for it. x

The Revolution in cancer treatment has begun. Targeted therapies and the Oncofocus DNA Cancer Test
http://www.oncologica.com/oncofocus/ Oncofocus Cancer Test and targeted therapies: an interesting discussion with Dr David Fennelly (Oncologist), Dr Joe Gilvarry (General Practitioner), Prof Gareth H Williams (Oncologica® Ltd Medical Director), Dr Marco Loddo (Oncologica® Ltd Scientific Director) and Kitty Williams (Oncologica® Ltd Senior Commercial Manager). Chemotherapy is no longer the only option against cancer, there are now more than 600 targeted therapies available to treat solid tumours. Targeted therapies are the cornerstone of personalized medicine, a form of medicine that uses information about a person’s DNA profile to treat cancer. The Oncofocus test can identify new treatment options in 85% of patients who have supposedly exhausted standard treatments protocols.

Black Salve - Cancer 'Treatment' That Burns Holes in You!
A cottage industry has developed online selling alternative treatments that, unlike the high-street shops, is not bound by the Trade Description or Medicines Act. This has led to a lot of vulnerable people being exposed to some truly insidious products that have the potential to cause a lot of pain and suffering. Perhaps one of the more shocking examples of this is the promotion of a paste called Black Salve (also known as Casema) to people suffering from cancer. Black Salve is an escharotic substance meaning that when applied directly to the skin, it causes the cells to die – creating a thick black dry clump of necrotic tissue called an “eschar”. This often causes scarring and can potentially cause serious injury and disfigurement. The paste itself is made from a mixture of bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) extract and zinc chloride.

Cancer treatment for MS hailed - BBC News
Doctors in Sheffield (UK) say patients with multiple sclerosis are showing "remarkable" improvements after receiving a treatment usually used in cancer. They were given bone marrow transplants using their own stem cells to "reset" or "reboot" their faulty immune system. Some patients have been able to walk again after being paralysed. MS affects around 100,000 people in the UK, most of them diagnosed in their 20s and 30s.

Lung cancer survivor: Advice for cancer patients considering a clinical trial
After a CT scan revealed a 5 cm mass on his lung, lung cancer patient Tom Barber underwent a video-assisted thoracotomy at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in August 2009. He subsequently considered chemotherapy and a clinical trial for follow-up lung cancer treatment. Ultimately, Barber chose to participate in a clinical trial. Although he experienced many side effects as a result of the clinical trial, he encourages other cancer patients to participate in a clinical trial, if there's one that's appropriate for their particular cancer diagnosis. Today, Barber is lung cancer-free.

Ending cancer through innovative cancer treatment and research
The number of cancer cases is expected to continue to rise. But at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, we're focused on eliminating cancer through innovative cancer treatment options, clinical trials and cancer research. We understand that cancer represents more than 100 different diseases, that different types of cancer behave differently and need to be treated differently, and that each patient's cancer requires personalized cancer treatment. We treat more cancers a day than many doctors see in their entire careers. But we don't just treat cancer. Our cancer researchers also are pioneering new cancer therapies, such as immunotherapy, and are identifying new ways to prevent cancer and to find cancer at its earliest stages, when it's easiest to treat. Our employees never forget our focus -- our patients -- and we strive to make sure they receive the compassionate care they deserve each day. This shows in our consistently high patient satisfaction scores. It's not just our doctors, employees, graduate students and trainees who have helped make MD Anderson a global leader in cancer care, cancer research and cancer education. Our cancer patients, cancer survivors, volunteers and donors also play an essential role in our efforts to end cancer. #endcancer Learn more about MD Anderson: http://www.mdanderson.org/about-us/index.html Request an appointment at MD Anderson: https://www4.mdanderson.org/contact/selfreferral/index.cfm

A Mother's Love (Cancer Hoax Documentary) - Real Stories
This disturbing film tells the inside story of a mother, Terri Milbrandt, who pretended her daughter had cancer and appealed to her close- knit community for help to pay the medical bills. Seven-year-old Hannah had her head shaved and was given sleeping pills by her mother. It seems that when she awoke she was told she had had chemotherapy. Her teachers arranged counselling for Hannah to prepare her for her death and when she visited Santa she asked to be spared. But there was no cancer and there were no medical bills. Now that close-knit community wants justice and a jury must decide whether they were the victims of a sadistic fraud. This film talks exclusively to Bob Milbrandt, Hannah's father, who is standing trial for conspiracy to the crimes of theft, child endangerment and felonious assault, and to Hannah's grandmother who is also standing trial for theft. Friends, fundraisers and police investigators reveal how it took nine months to discover the story was false. Want to watch more full-length Documentaries?

Expanding the clinical trial portfolio for lung cancer
Matthew Hatton, MSc, MBChB, MRCP, FRCP, FRCR, Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield, UK, is the chair of the NCRI Lung Clinical Studies Group. The group’s remit is to develop the trial portfolio for lung cancer in order to cover areas that are not particularly well covered by the pharmaceutical industry. Such areas include screening, early diagnosis, radiotherapy, surgery, supportive care, and palliative care. The goal is that, ultimately, clinical trials become an option for all lung cancer patients as part of their disease management and treatment. Recorded at the 2017 meeting of the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG) in Dublin, Ireland.

RTÉ News: Patients with Advanced Melanoma in Cork Clinical Trial
Around 30 patients suffering from advanced melanoma cancer are being enrolled in a clinical trial in Cork, with early results indicating improved survival rates. Copyright: RTE News The trial involves a combination of two existing treatments. Doctors are being encouraged to refer suitable patients for inclusion in the clinical trial, which is being offered by Cork Cancer Research Centre at Cork University Hospital. Scientists believe that delivering an electrical pulse or shock directly to the tumour, along with an immunotherapy drug called IPI and low-dose chemotherapy will improve survival rates for advanced melanoma cancer patients. Doctors involved in the clinical trial believe the new treatment will be widely adopted and have described it as one of the first of its kind in the world. http://www.ccrc.ie http://www.breakthroughcancerresearch.ie

Cancer: Film Hollywood Herceptin - Herceptin in a Hollywood movie
(from wikipedia - Living Proof) Living Proof is a 2008 Lifetime Television movie, directed by Dan Ireland, starring Harry Connick, Jr. The film is based on the true life story of Dr. Dennis Slamon and the book "HER-2: The Making of Herceptin, a Revolutionary Treatment for Breast Cancer" by Robert Bazell. Renée Zellweger is on of the executive producers, together with Neil Meron and Craig Zadan. The film follows the true story of Dr. Dennis Slamon (played by Harry Connick, Jr.), who helped develop the breast cancer drug Herceptin, over the course of 8 years from 1988 to 1996. Dr. Slamon is a research doctor at UCLA Medical Center (Los Angeles), where he has developed the experimental drug Herceptin, which he believes will become a treatment for breast cancer. Prior to the trials, the drug has a "mouse trial", with Nicole (Tammy Blanchard), a young mother with stage 4 cancer, receiving the drug first. Although her mother Elizabeth (Swoosie Kurtz) pleads with Dr. Slamon, Nicole is not included in the subsequent trials as she does not meet the protocols. The women in the trials, particularly the first trial, band together. They handle their disease and drug trial, with humor—Tish (Jennifer Coolidge), or with alternative therapy—Tina (Trudie Styler). The stories of Barbara (Bernadette Peters) and Ellie (Regina King) are followed throughout, as they go through the trials and eventual recovery. Some patients involved in the tests die, but ultimately Slamon's work with the drug changes the course of breast cancer treatment. Tammy Blanchard, Amanda Bynes, Jennifer Coolidge, Angie Harmon, John Benjamin Hickey, Regina King, Swoosie Kurtz, Paula Cale Lisbe, Amy Madigan, Bernadette Peters, and Trudie Styler are featured in the supporting cast.

Precision Cancer Medicine: Jeff's Story | Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center
Jeff was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer that had spread to his brain. His tumor tested positive for the ALK gene translocation so his treatment changed from chemotherapy to a targeted therapy that was more effective and had fewer side effects. Four years later, Jeff is still doing well. Learn how Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center is delivering on the promise of cancer precision medicine. Transcription: Jeff: My name is Jeff. I’ve lived in the greater Boston area my whole life. I’m married, and I have two children. My wife is Tina, my daughter is Sophie, and my son is Noah. For a week or so, a couple people who I had spent a lot of time with noticed that I wasn’t acting quite normally, my wife didn’t think I was acting normally, and my boss didn’t think I was acting normally. I was tired a lot, and in the morning when I would get ready for work—right before I left the house—I’d sit down on a chair or something like that and then—poof!—all of a sudden, it was three hours later, like I would just sleep there and not know it and then frantically show up for work late for a couple days. One Saturday, my wife and I went to a food and wine festival where they give you little cups of wine and some snacks to eat, and it turns out I passed out after two of those little cups of wine. Text: Jeff’s doctor ordered an MRI of his head. Jeff: He showed me the MRI, and I had a big tumor in the top of my head about the size of a lemon, and he told that I needed to go right to the hospital, and it needed to be removed. They did lots of tests and scans to try to figure out exactly what it was and how best to deal with it. They discovered there was actually lung cancer that had spread to my brain. They also found a very small lung tumor, and they had found additional smaller brain tumors. Text: Jeff had surgery to remove the tumor, followed by whole brain radiation. Then he had chemotherapy. Jeff: The following chemo sessions got pretty bad. After the second one, I had to basically lay in bed and sleep for three days, and then after the third one, I slept for five days. It got progressively worse. So, I actually started to get worried about how long I could actually stand chemotherapy, but it was working, so whatever works, I was going to keep doing. My lung tumor was not growing at that point. Then after five chemotherapy sessions, my tumor did start to grow a little bit. My tumor was sent out for genetic testing to see if I had markers or mutations, and it turns out that my tumor does have an ALK translocation. There was a clinical drug that targeted that. It worked wonderfully. I had very few side effects, and I’ve been scanned repeatedly, and everything looks great. Text: Jeff meets monthly with his clinicians at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center. Jeff: The care you receive here has really been excellent. Everybody that I’ve met really seems to me like they're on top of their game. Dr. Jackman was always one step ahead of me, so when he told me he was putting me on chemotherapy to start, he was thinking about what other better things he could move me on. It’s really reassuring knowing that he’s a step ahead of me the whole time. He took a lot of the worry out for me when I figured this out, that he knows where I’m going. He’s got a path for me—I don’t need to worry about it. Text: After 4 years, Jeff continues doing well on his targeted therapies. Jeff: There are two things that I’ve realized coming here. One is that there’s tremendous patient care all the time. But the other is there’s tremendous research going on here. When I think about the targeted therapies, they didn’t change my life—they gave me back my old life, which has really been awesome. I wake up in the morning like a normal person. I get myself ready for work. I feed my kids. I do everything regular people do. I’m a little bit different, but not too different.

Results and impact of TAILORx: Trial Assigning IndividuaLized Options for Treatment (Rx)
At the European Cancer Congress (ECC) 2015, John Crown, MD, MBA, of St Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland, discusses the low-risk registry results from Trial Assigning IndividuaLized Options for Treatment (TAILORx). TAILORx is a prospective phase 3 clinical trial designed to evaluate the role of endocrine therapy and chemoendocrine therapy in patients with oestrogen receptor (ER)-positive, HER2-negative, node-negative breast cancer whose treatment was guided by the Oncotype DX® Breast Cancer Assay Recurrence Score® results. The results showed that adding genomic information provided by the Oncotype DX® Breast Cancer Assay may influence the selection of patients for adjuvant chemotherapy based on standard clinicopathological criteria.

Lung cancer survivor discusses his lung cancer treatment
Before Tom Barber received his lung cancer diagnosis, he had a recurring cough that doctors repeatedly treated with antibiotics. A CT scan later revealed a 4-6 cm tumor in the upper lobe of his lung. For his lung cancer treatment, he underwent a video-assisted thoracotomy (also known as a lobectomy) at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in August 2009. Within three weeks, Barber -- now a 4-year lung cancer survivor -- was back at the gym lifting weights. He has subsequently completed 5K and 10K runs, a half-marathon and two triathlons. Barber says his quality of life after lung cancer treatment is even better than it was before lung cancer.

Lung Cancer Rx Might Outperform Chemo
http://www.dailyrx.com/ A new study found evidence that immunotherapy, which uses the body's own immune system to fight a disease, helped patients with lung cancer live longer than patients treated with chemotherapy. "In the 20 years that I’ve been in practice, I consider this a major milestone,” said lead study author Julie Brahmer, MD, of Johns Hopkins Medicine's Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in Baltimore, in a news release. Dr. Brahmer and team compared traditional chemotherapy treatment to treatment with an immunotherapy medication, nivolumab (sold under the brand name Opdivo). The study involved 272 patients with squamous-cell non-small-cell lung cancer, a common form of lung cancer where cancer cells form in the tissue lining the lungs. These patients had all received initial chemotherapy, but their cancer was still progressing. In chemotherapy, doctors give patients powerful drugs that attack cancer cells. The study patients were split into two groups. In the first group, 135 patients received the immunotherapy drug nivolumab. The second group of 137 patients received docetaxel (sold under the brand name Taxotere), a chemotherapy drug. Overall, Dr. Brahmer and team found better results among the nivolumab group — who had a 41 percent lower relative risk of dying from lung cancer than the chemotherapy group. The immunotherapy patients had a median overall survival of 9.2 months, compared to six months in the chemotherapy group. The immunotherapy patients also had a median of 3.5 months with out any disease progression, compared to 2.8 months in the chemo group. And after one year, 42 percent of the patients taking nivolumab were still alive, compared to only 24 percent of the chemotherapy group — nearly a doubled survival rate among the immunotherapy patients. The patients taking nivolumab also reported fewer and less severe side effects. Only 7 percent of this group reported severe side effects, compared to 55 percent of the chemo patients.

RCSI MiniMed Lecture Series 2014/2015 - ‘Breast Cancer - What Do We Know Now?' - Prof Arnold Hill
This lecture, called ‘Breast Cancer - What Do We Know Now?' was delivered by the Head of the School of Medicine and Professor of Surgery at RCSI Professor Arnold Hill and was recorded in the O'Flanagan Lecture Theatre, RCSI on 26th November 2014. In this talk, Prof Hill will speak about how new breast cancer therapies, and how moving to a more personalised patient approach to managing breast cancer, has changed it from a disease that kills, to one where patients have learned to live and manage it as a chronic illness. The various options to treating and managing the condition will be discussed and Prof Hill will also detail the future challenges in the battle against breast cancer. He will detail the innovations in surgical techniques which are less invasive and have led to vast improvements in breast reconstruction procedures.
