Pass It On: Links About Cancer

This post is part of a section on my blog called “Pass It On”. It’s a collection of links that I am passing on to you for your reference. I’ll post into this section about once a month. If you find something interesting then…pass it on!

Natural Ways to Fight Cancer

House Republicans Fast-Track Bill to Prevent States from Labeling GMO Foods – It’s Called the DARK Act – Republicans in the U.S. House have swiftly moved to adopt legislation that would prohibit states from adopting laws requiring labels on food containing genetically modified organisms (GMO).

Here’s a List of Alternative Cancer Therapies – Read More

This video is about one of the most important ways to fight disease (including cancer) and that is lifestyle change. Take a look.  🙂


Here’s a video About Peppermint Oil and IBS – Considering that carcinoid cancer often is accompanied by digestive issues you may find this interesting.

General Information

It’s conventional wisdom that there are “good” and “bad” hospitals — and that selecting a good one can protect patients from the kinds of medical errors that injure or kill hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. Read More

CT Scans Causing Cell Damage – After the scans, the research did show an increase in DNA damage in cells, as well as cell death. There was also increased expression of genes involved in the repair or death of cells, the study found. Read More

Medical Information

Current Clinical Trials from Nanets.nethttps://www.nanets.net/content/carcinoid-tumors

New Surgery Technique for Carcinoid Cancer / NET Patients – We hypothesize these potential tumor residuals in mesenteric lymph node dissection beds can be eliminated safely by a local application of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). We describe a novel technique invented by the author to treat these micro and macro residuals. Read More

Editing Genes To Fight Cancer – In another experiment, the researchers used CRISPR to alter a T-cell protein called PD-1, which helps the immune system fight cancer. Scientists hope to tweak T-cells from cancer patients that would keep their disease at bay and perhaps completely kill tumors. Red More

PRRT Summary – There are three radionuclides that are attached to octreotide to create radiopeptides: indium 111 (111In), yttrium 90 (90Y) and lutetium 177 (177Lu).  These radiopeptides differ in the type of radiation they emit as well as the depth of tissue into which they penetrate.  Tissue penetration is an important factor since a certain range of radiation is necessary to kill tumor cells but not damage surrounding, healthy tissues.  Read More

PRRT Summary – In PRRT, a cell-targeting protein (or peptide) called octreotide is combined with a small amount of radioactive material, or radionuclide, creating a special type of radiopharmaceutical called a radiopeptide. When injected into the patient’s bloodstream, this radiopeptide travels to and binds to neuroendocrine tumor cells, delivering a high dose of radiation to the cancer.  Read More

PRRT Results – When you and your doctor are evaluating which treatment modality is right for you, be sure to compare the Time to Progression/Progression Free Survival and Duration of Therapy Response for PRRT to other modalities under consideration. Read More
