New Cancer Treatment Is Incredibly Effective
Researchers from Stanford University looked into a possible cancer vaccine and through their clinical trials found out it is incredibly effective. Ana Kasparian, Grace Baldridge, and Mark Thompson, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join Read more here: https://www.livescience.com/62161-cancer-vaccine-trial.html "A promising new cancer "vaccine" that cured up to 97 percent of tumors in mice will soon be tested in humans for the first time — but experts say that we're still a long way off from this type of drug being prescribed to cancer patients. Researchers from Stanford University will test the therapy in about 35 people with lymphoma by the end of the year, according to SFGate, a local news outlet in San Francisco. The treatment stimulates the body's immune system to attack cancer cells. In studies in mice with various cancers — including lymphoma, breast cancer and colon cancer — the treatment eliminated cancer tumors in 87 out of 90 mice, even when the tumors had spread to other parts of the body, the researchers said."

Immunotherapy Advances in Small Cell Lung Cancer
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is aggressive and often difficult to treat, but many patients may have new hope. https://www.cancerresearch.org/webinars On August 17, 2018, the FDA approved the first immunotherapy—the checkpoint inhibitor nivolumab (Opdivo®, Bristol-Myers Squibb)—for patients with small cell lung cancer. Since this approval, there has been renewed focus on how to make different immunotherapies work for a disease which typically comprises 10-15% of all lung cancer cases. In this webinar for patients and caregivers, Matthew Hellmann, M.D., of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center discusses the new FDA approval, clinical trials, and potential treatments for patients with small cell lung cancer. Matthew Hellman MSKDr. Matthew Hellmann specializes in the care of patients with lung cancers. He is dedicated to identifying better treatments for people with all stages of disease and to providing compassionate care for patients and their families. His research focuses on developing innovative and effective ways to harness the body’s immune system to fight cancer. He is a member of the Immunotherapeutics Group, which designs and leads early-phase clinical trials of immunotherapies for patients with a variety of different cancers.

Keeping Lung Cancer Under Control: Bob's Immunotherapy Story
When Bob was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), his wife Julia was so devastated that she cried for several months thinking about her life without him. Bob weighed all his options with his oncologist. After trying chemotherapy, Bob found another treatment that would give him hope—immunotherapy. He enrolled in a clinical trial of a treatment that helps T-cells to recognize and attack cancer cells. Six years later, Bob's health is stable and he remains optimistic. Bob and Julia urge others to not give up hope because advances in cancer research are rapidly providing new treatment options.

Clinical trial was the right choice for lung cancer survivor
When Georgia Dominick was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic lung cancer in Aug. 2014, an Alabama oncologist told her she only had a year left to live. But Georgia didn’t accept that prognosis and came to MD Anderson instead. Here, she took part in a clinical trial involving a new immunotherapy drug for people with her exact type of cancer. She is now two years post-diagnosis, and is considered in remission. “If I had the choice of going anywhere else in the world for free, I would stay right here,” she says. MD Anderson offers many clinical trials for all different cancers.

FDA pulls Keytruda from two clinical trials after deaths
Although the FDA approved Keytruda in 2016 to help treat lung cancer, as an "alternative to chemotherapy," they recently put two trials on hold that involved the drug. UPI says that deaths were reported after two clinical trials mixed Keytruda with two other therapies. The trials reportedly investigated whether Keytruda could help people combat multiple myeloma. This use had not previously been approved by the FDA. An FDA spokesperson said that while trials are evaluated for risks, their purpose is to provide further insight into the safety of treatments. They added, "When significant safety issues do arise, we must work quickly to prevent further injury or deaths." https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/09/01/FDA-pulls-Keytruda-from-two-clinical-trials-after-deaths/7941504269174/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

New Treatment for Early Stage Lung Cancer
Learn more about this clinical trial http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00840749 Patients who cannot have surgery for an early stage lung cancer may now benefit from a new radiation therapy technology called stereotactic radiation therapy (STARS). This treatment can typically be given in 3 or 4 days as opposed to the 5 or 6 weeks with conventional radiation therapy. For patients who CAN have surgery, an operation that removes the lobe of the lung containing the cancer and lymph nodes is the current standard of care. Because of the good results seen so far with stereotactic radiation therapy, it is now being considered as an alternative to surgery for patient who are fit enough to have surgery. Jack Roth, M.D., in the thoracic surgery department at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses this clinical trial (STARS) that compares stereotactic radiation therapy with traditional surgery.

For many lung cancer patients, Keytruda is a better initial treatment than chemotherapy, study finds
For many lung cancer patients, Keytruda is a better initial treatment than chemotherapy, study finds lung cancer, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, cancer treatment, clinical trials, medical research, ASCO, American Society of Clinical Oncology https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd4_4MPV20qVj80Rm_cQHOw?sub_confirmation=1 In findings that may allow many lung cancer patients to avoid chemotherapy, a large clinical trial has shown that the immunotherapy drug Keytruda is a more effective initial treatment for two-thirds of patients with the most common type of lung cancer. Compared with advanced small-cell lung cancer patients who got chemotherapy, those treated first with Keytruda had a median survival time that was four to eight months longer. Advertisement The difference was greatest among patients whose cancers harbored high levels of the genetic mutations Keytruda uses to target malignancy. But even patients whose cancers had very low levels of these mutations outlived patients who got chemotherapy by a median of four months. In addition, treating lung cancer patients with Keytruda improved quality of life. Among those who got the immunotherapy drug, only 18% experienced severe side effects, compared with 41% on chemotherapy. The findings, presented this week at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, will probably expand Keytruda’s use as a first-line treatment for advanced small-cell lung cancer, the most common form of the disease. At the same time, it’s sure to raise dilemmas for physicians and insurers struggling to identify when and in which advanced lung cancer patients the use of a very costly new medication makes sense. A year’s therapy with Keytruda can cost as much as $150,000. The cost of the chemotherapy cocktails to which it was compared in the new study is a few thousand dollars. In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration approved the marketing of Keytruda (also known as pembrolizumab) for use in lung cancer patients whose cancers had been genetically tested and were found to have levels of PD-L1 — a mutation that Keytruda targets — of 50% or higher. About one-third of patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer meet this criterion. The new clinical trial, called Keynote-042, tested Keytruda’s effectiveness in newly diagnosed patients whose PD-L1 levels were as low as 1% — a population that represents two-thirds of those with small cell lung cancer. Researchers randomly assigned 1,274 people with advanced disease to receive one of two kinds of chemotherapy — either paclitaxel (marketed as Taxol) plus carboplatin or pemetrexed (marketed as Alimta) plus carboplatin — or Keytruda. Then, researchers followed their cases for a median of 12.8 months. Among patients whose PD-L1 levels were from 1% to 19%, those who got Keytruda lived for a median of 16.7 months after diagnoses while those who got chemotherapy lived a median of 12.8 months. Among patients with PD-L1 levels from 20% to 49%, those who got Keytruda lived a median of 17.7 months compared with 13 months for patients on chemotherapy. Patients whose PD-L1 levels were above 50% — those for whom Keytruda already has the FDA’s blessing — survived a median of 20 months with Keytruda, compared with 12.2 months for chemotherapy. The study has not yet

New Immunotherapy Drugs Offer Even More Treatment Options and Hope for Lung Cancer Patients
New clinical trials here at The James offer even more hope and options for lung cancer patients, thanks to new immunotherapy drugs recently approved for lung cancer treatments. These drugs work with the body’s own immune system, and they maintain lower toxicity, frequent tumor shrinkage and long-lasting responses for patients. And with new clinical trials researching their use in combination with other treatments, with surgery or, in some cases, even as the first treatment response for lung cancer, many patients are experiencing fewer side effects, shorter recovery times, and longer-lasting results.

Cancer Clinical Trials
Sometime in the future, people may look back on today as the golden age in cancer research. "In the old days, we used cytotoxic drugs that kind of worked across the board, just sort of wiped out rapidly growing cells. The newer advances in molecular biology and biochemistry is that they're finding out what are the growth pathways that drive various cancers. And unfortunately it's complex; many cancers have several different pathways so when you block one, you may be able to reverse the cancer for a period of time and then it finds its way to get around it," says Dr. William Harwin, oncologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. As cancer treatment moves toward individual drug therapy, studies are honing in on these cancer pathways and trying to find ways to shut them down. That's where drug trials come into play. "That's what basically produces advances. And that is also a way in which we give the latest cutting edge therapies to patients," says Dr. Harwin. Clinical trials come in four phases. The first involves patients who have exhausted their options. It looks at the safety of a drug. The final phase generally comes after FDA approval. At any given time, people in Southwest Florida are taking part. Each drug has different qualifying characteristics that determine whether someone is eligible. It's the nature of trials that not everyone gets the experimental drug. "It's double-blinded, so there's absolutely no chance for bias or that someone could interfere with the results. So even though I had a patient on the trial, I don't know if they got the treatment drug or they got the placebo drug," says Dr. Harwin. Several drugs, including ones for lung, skin and breast cancer were tested locally, and went on to get FDA approval. "That's really exciting to know that I put a patient here in Fort Myers on a trial that lead to a new drug that's going to improve the treatment of breast cancer," says Dr. Harwin. As researchers attack cancer from the cellular level, it gives cancer doctors more options to fight it in the real world.

New Lung Cancer Study tests effectiveness of genomic therapy
Watch more and discuss: http://norwalk.itsrelevant.com/content/19695/whittingham-changing-lung-cancer-treatment A new drug through a clinical trial at Norwalk Hospital is changing the way doctors are treating lung cancer. "We've now been able to identity a couple of specific genetic changes that can be targeted with drugs. Right now it is standard of care to treat some patients who have a mutation in the gene called EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) with a drug called Tarceva or another drug calledafatinib,"said Dr. Richard Frank, medical oncologist and Director of Cancer Researcha at Norwalk Hospital. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in men and women.According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), each year more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. There are two major types of lung cancer, non-small cell and small cell. Diagnostic testing guides treatment by determining the type and stage of the cancer, as well as genetic mutations in the cancer cells. According to Dr. Richard Frank, the medicine targets a specific gene mutation in patients tumors. "This mutation is more common in people who did not smoke and developed lung cancer. There is a population especialy in young women, that is rising exponentially but we do not know why." With the new drugs, patients now have another treatment option other than traditional chemotherapy. "Now it's gene abnormality - pill. It is a targeted approach, said Dr. Frank. And Dr. Frank says the drugs are yielding promising results. "Not all the cells are killed but patients can enjoy remission of many months or many years in some cases. There has been a phase I trial already done and most of the patients responded so we know this pill is very active. We are now in the expansion trial meaning more people will recieve the drug, and probably as a result of this, the drug will recieve approval [from the FDA].

How does cancer immunotherapy work?
Traditionally, cancer treatment has revolved around chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. But thanks to groundbreaking immune checkpoint blockade research led by Jim Allison, Ph.D., winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, we have a new way to treat cancer: immunotherapy. Rather than treating the cancer directly, immunotherapy trains the immune system to attack cancer. With immunotherapy, MD Anderson is able to effectively treat bladder cancer, head and neck cancers, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, kidney cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and melanoma. And through clinical trials, we’re expanding immunotherapy to treat more types of cancer and exploring more types of immunotherapy every day. Request an appointment at MD Anderson online at https://my.mdanderson.org/RequestAppointmentcmpid=youtube_appointment_immunotherapy or by calling 1-877-632-6789.

Patient to Patient: What You Need to Know About Cancer Immunotherapy
How does a cancer diagnosis interrupt your life? Why choose immunotherapy? Two patients offer two very different perspectives on life with cancer, choosing a clinical trial, and figuring out what's next in life. In this webinar designed for patients and caregivers, T.J. Sharpe and Donna Fernandez share their experiences with cancer immunotherapy as well as share advice for patients currently seeking or receiving immunotherapy treatment. T.J. Sharpe, was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma in 2012, just weeks after the birth of his second child. Not satisfied with the standard of care treatments offered to him, he and his family began exploring immunotherapy. Two clinical trials later, he is living a full life, now on maintenance Keytruda, devoting the bulk of his time to his family and to melanoma advocacy. T.J. writes a blog for philly.com called Patient 1. (The name of his blog was inspired by the first clinical trial he enrolled in at Moffit Cancer Center, in which he was the first patient ever to receive Yervoy and TIL (tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes, a type of adoptive cell transfer).) Donna Fernandez was first diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2012, when she went to the doctor believing she had a thyroid problem. At the time, Donna was working full time and doing dog agility several nights a week and every weekend. Her tumors did not respond to chemotherapy, and when faced with beginning a second chemotherapy regimen, Donna instead enrolled in an immunotherapy trial of nivolumab (Opdivo). Donna responded immediately. Her scans show that the tumors have remained stable. Donna continues training with her two dogs, Cotton and Barney. She says, “Opdivo has let me live my life exactly how I want to. People talk about a “new normal” after cancer, but I don’t have a new normal. I’m still living my old normal.” The "Cancer Immunotherapy and You" webinar series is produced by the Cancer Research Institute and is made possible with generous support from Bristol-Myers Squibb, with additional support from Regeneron, Sanofi Genzyme, and Adaptimmune.

Immunotherapy Clinical Trials: Sue Scott’s Story of Survival
An inside look at a Center for Cancer Research trial with Dr. Christian Hinrichs and his patient, Sue Scott. Dr. Hinrichs conducts basic and clinical research to discover and develop novel T-cell therapies for the treatment of patients with cancer. This work includes a clinical trial of HPV-targeted tumor-infiltrating T cells for patients with HPV+ cancers, which has demonstrated that this treatment can mediate complete regression of cervical cancer in some patients. Dr. Hinrichs' laboratory also has discovered genes for T-cell receptors that target HPV, and his group is testing new gene therapy treatments based on these receptors for patients with advanced HPV+ tumors. The Center for Cancer Research (CCR) is a part of the National Cancer Institute. For more on CCR: https://ccr.cancer.gov/ To search for clinical trials: http://trials.cancer.gov

Investigational cancer treatment study
A new investigational drug designed to stop cancer cells from reproducing may offer hope for patients with advanced solid tumor cancers. Clinical trials of TKM-PLK1 for qualified patients are now open at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare. TKM-PLK-1 targets a protein called polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) that promotes tumor cell reproduction. It prevents the tumor from completing cell division, resulting in death of the cancer cell. The Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare will be among the first in the world to study the treatment in humans. The new drug is being developed as a treatment for patients with advanced solid tumor cancers who are not well served by current therapy. The Phase 1 clinical trial will evaluate the safety, tolerability and how the body metabolizes TKM-PLK1. Laboratory research showed the investigational compound may have effectiveness in treating colorectal, breast, non-small cell lung, and ovarian cancers. These diseases collectively affect more than 500,000 new patients each year in the United States. Individuals seeking information about eligibility to participate in clinical trials at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare may contact the cancer care coordinator at 480-323-1339, toll free at 1-877-273-3713 or via email at clinicaltrials@shc.org.

Zee News - Kusum stage IV lung cancer patient message to support clinical trails in India
It is short interview/ story of Kusum, a patient of stage IV lung cancer metastatic to brain (multiple tumors), to support and raise awareness of clinical trials in India, as taken by Zee news, a Hindi National News Channel in India. 5 yrs back, though being a non-smoker, at the age of 29, Kusum was diagnosed with stage IV. In 2014, when her disease got resistant to all available applicable medicines in India (though they were available in western countries via approval or clinical trials). She almost lost her life to this dreadful disease due to unavailability of any medicine. To get any cancer medicine approved in India, it should go for clinical trials, whether it is already approved in other countries or not. In India, there are only 1.4% of global trails going on, which leads to almost no access of the latest medicines/ treatment options for Indian citizens. Fortunately, after 3 months of battle of survival, Kusum came across a new clinical trial in India and decided to participate. After experiencing how clinical trial saved Kusum’s life and struggle associated to get access to latest medicines and clinical trial, Kusum and her husband Vivek have started to work actively with Patients, NGOs, Industry organizations, Regulators at FDA/ Govt and Doctors on clinical trial awareness and raising support to change the current clinical trial situation in India. So that no Indian patient should die due to unavailability of medicine that is available somewhere in world.

Is the Next Big Step in Cancer Therapy: Personalized Vaccines?
An immunotherapy clinical trial at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health is testing a personalized vaccine using unique cancer mutations to boost an anti-tumor immune response. Tamara Strauss became the first patient to enroll in a first-of-its-kind study after spending more than three years living with stage IV pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer. Ezra Cohen, MD, associate director for translational science at Moores Cancer Center, and Stephen Schoenberger, PhD, professor of immunology at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology, developed a new technology that identifies a patient’s unique targets that can be used to create a vaccine specific to each individual person.
