According to a 2012 report by Environmental Working Group (EWG), non-organic American apples are banned by Europe since most conventional apples in US are filled with toxic chemical diphenylamine, also known as DPA. DPA prevents apples from ‘storage scald’ which is browning or blackening of apples’ skin when they are exposed to cold storage for a long period of time. Read More

Dandelion root is also praised for its anti-cancer potential. It may slow cancer’s growth and prevent it from spreading. Dandelion leaves are rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, therefore very useful for fighting cancer. A study found that dandelion root extract could kill melanoma cells without destroying non-cancerous cells. Another study showed that it had this similar effect on pancreatic cancer cells. Dandelion greens also contain antioxidants such as vitamins A and C, which can help fight cancer. Read More

An investigative radiotracer used to image neuroendocrine cancer patients who have metastatic tumors can successfully locate their previously elusive primary disease and change clinical management, according to a new study presented at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) 2015 Annual Meeting here. Read More

Researchers discovered that the gene NR2F1, when switched on, programs tumor cells to stay dormant. When the gene is switched off, tumor cells divide and multiply as part of abnormal growth, potentially allowing dormant cells to grow into tumors throughout the body (metastasis). Combining the anticancer drugs azacytidine and retinoic acid significantly increased the amount of active NR2F1 in tumor cells.  Read More

Scientists at UCL have made a groundbreaking discovery in understanding how the genetic complexity of tumours can be recognised and exploited by the immune system, even when the disease is at its most advanced stages. Read More

Sunitinib works by inhibiting the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). In tumor cells, this signal inhibits tumor vasculature; however, in healthy cells it is associated with tHTN. Previous studies have shown a risk for hypertension among patients treated with VEGF receptor inhibitors and sunitinib, but because cardiovascular risk factors are common in patients with metastatic RCC, Ivanyi and colleagues wanted to explore the occurrence of this adverse event further. Read More

The new tests pair radioactive materials with a receptor that reacts to a hormone for neuroendocrine tumors or, in the case of prostate cancer, amino acid, which is what fuels the disease. The result is a better view of the cancer. Read More

Tons of Info About PRRT ….a decision from the FDA is expected by early 2017.  Additionally, an Expanded Access Program (EAP) in the United States for the investigational product, Lutathera, is expected to begin in about 2 months at 2-5 institutions. Through the Expanded Access Program Lutathera is being made available to patients with “inoperable, somatostatin receptor positive, midgut carcinoid tumors, progressive under somatostatin analogue therapy.” Read More

T-cell therapy, a form of immunotherapy that uses a patient’s own immune cells to attack their cancer, has been making waves recently. The “living” therapy involves engineering the patient’s T cells in the laboratory to carry new proteins that guide the immune cells directly to tumor cells, allowing the engineered T cells to attack and kill the cancer.Read More
