Researchers are now launching a new study to determine whether a simple blood test could show early signs of breast cancer.
_____
This pioneering new clinical study -- funded by Cancer Research UK in collaboration with the University of Leicester and Imperial College London -- is about to start in the UK's largest breast screening clinic at Charing Cross Hospital, London.
_____
Researchers will take blood samples from women attending the breast screening clinic and compare the DNA in the blood of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer with those that do not have cancer to see what DNA markers are consistent.
_____
Dr Jacqui Shaw, principal investigator from the University of Leicester, said: "This exciting research means we could one day have a blood test that detects the very early signs of cancer meaning women could have an annual blood test rather than breast screening. This would remove any worry and anxiety for women who are called for further investigations after a mammogram only to find they don't have cancer.

Tailored treatment study aims to improve #prostatecancer care
A study to develop "tailored treatments" for prostate cancer sufferers is being led by researchers at the University of Glasgow.

By selecting drugs best suited to an individual man's #cancer, they hope to significantly extend life expectancy.

They predict it has the potential to extend the lives of 9,000 men every year in the U.K.

Here's a promising way to treat pain in #breastcancer treatment. "Now, research presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium suggests that #acupuncture may reduce drug-related joint pain for these women, and may provide a way for them to continue taking these potentially life-saving medications. The study authors hope their findings will persuade more insurance companies to cover the alternative medicine technique, in addition to traditional breast cancer treatments."

Birth control pills still linked to #breastcancer, study finds. "The study, which followed 1.8 million Danish women for more than a decade, upends widely held assumptions about modern contraceptives for younger generations of women. Many women have believed that newer hormonal contraceptives are much safer than those taken by their mothers or grandmothers, which had higher doses of estrogen.

The new paper estimated that for every 100,000 women, hormone contraceptive use causes an additional 13 breast cancer cases a year. That is, for every 100,000 women using hormonal birth control, there are 68 cases of breast cancer annually, compared with 55 cases a year among nonusers."

An old #drug for #alcoholism finds new life as #cancer treatment "Finding a new use for an approved drug is appealing because the compound has already passed safety testing. However, “big pharma probably won’t be interested” in developing disulfiram for cancer because there’s no patent protection on the drug, Bartek says. Still, if the pending clinical trials provide convincing evidence, Halleday points out, oncologists could go ahead and prescribe it anyway as an inexpensive treatment." #cancernews #cancerdrug #breasttumour #bigpharma #repurposeddrugs

#Sugar industry withheld evidence linking #sucrose to bladder #cancer for five decades. "New research published in PLOS Biology by Cristin Kearns, Dorie Apollonio and Stanton Glantz of the University of California at San Francisco reveals that the sugar industry has been manipulating scientific research on the potentially deadly effects of a diet that includes sucrose for at least five decades. They argue that the industry, primarily through a group known as the Sugar Research Foundation (SRF), prematurely ended studies in the 1960s that linked sucrose to bladder cancer before they could be published."

Do CT Scans Cause Breast #Cancer?
In 2011, there were more than 85 million CT scans performed in American hospitals. In 2010, one in every 10 Americans underwent the procedure.
Developed in the 1970’s, the CT scan was hailed at the time as one of the “most important medical advances of the past century” because it allows physicians to see anomalies that would otherwise not be visible except through surgery.

But recent evidence is pointing to this highly-intensified and widely-used x-ray device as a possible cause of cancer as well.

I’m excited to be part of an organization with such an important mission.”

Epigenetics and breast #cancer: How YOU can influence your cancer risk

The study of #epigenetics looks at the ways environmental factors influence gene expression. If your genetics are your unique “blueprint” for #health, epigenetic factors could be thought of as the architects that bring that blueprint to life.
Some of the conditions that can negatively influence gene expression and even turn off cancer-protective genes could include: -toxins in the air, soil and water -GMO, pesticide-laden and highly-processed “dead food” we eat -stress caused by external circumstances, such as traumatic events or chronic stress -EMFs or electro-pollution emitted by close-range cell phone use, cell towers, SMART meters, Wi-Fi routers and more -stressors within the body such as gut imbalances -inactivity -lack of sleep -negative thoughts and beliefs

Can #cannabinoids be used to treat #cancer?

When cannabinoids activate signaling pathways in cancer cells they can stimulate a cell death mechanism called apoptosis, unleashing a potent anti-tumor effect. Yet cannabinoids, which have also shown strong activity against human #tumor tissue grown in animal models, have undergone minimal testing in patients. Their potential use as #antitumor drugs and/or to boost the effectiveness of conventional cancer therapies is examined in an article published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (JACM).

Doctors and patients haven’t been told the truth about #cancer #drugs for years. Here’s why and what to do… "In other industries, reports of poor regulation or lack of oversight putting lives at risk –deadly exhaust emissions, abuse of vulnerable patients or even falsified sell-by-dates on foods – at least trigger demands that ‘something must be done’, often followed up by hearings and further investigation. The cancer industry seems able to flout the rules with impunity." Read the full article by @jeromeburne8361 on healthinsightuk.org

Gut #bacteria can 'boost' #cancer therapy

Bacteria living in the murky depths of the digestive system seem to influence whether tumours shrink during cancer therapy, say French and US researchers.

One study, at the Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus in Paris, looked at 249 patients with lung or kidney cancer.

They showed those who had taken #antibiotics, such as for dental infection, damaged their microbiome and were more likely to see #tumours grow while on #immunotherapy.

This week on @ukhealthradio: Evidence of progress?

The disturbing news emerged recently that over half of the recent new drugs approved for cancer gave no clinical benefit to patients at all, despite their enormous costs. This brings into question the whole edifice of #EvidenceBasedMedicine (EBM) and whether it is fit for purpose and capable of delivering any meaningful progress. @jeromeburne8361 takes a strong interest in the forces at work in the development of #healthcare, so in the show, we lift the lid on EBM and discuss the future of cancer care.

We are really excited to announce that @drchatterjee from BBC One's Doctor in the House will be making a specially recorded video Q&A focusing on holistic care for our annual conference 'Starting the Conversation - exploring ways in which integrating conventional cancer care and lifestyle medicine can improve outcomes'. Dr Chatterjee believes the way we practise medicine is wrong….well, half wrong at least. It all started when he began to realise that he was genuinely only helping about 20% of his patients in his busy GP surgery. Then, when his six month old son became ill from a preventable vitamin deficiency something snapped. He had to find a whole new way, not just of taking care of his family and patients, but to get to the bottom of what MAKES us ill and KEEPS us healthy.

His new book, The Four Pillar Plan, which will be published in January 2018, is available for pre-order on Amazon.

When cancer strikes young
_____
Every year in Alberta, 200 to 300 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in adolescents and young adults (AYAs) aged 15 to 29.
_____
Neither under the umbrella of pediatrics nor entirely adults, they’re often left in a grey zone, with specific needs unmet in the current health system.
_____
A pilot program is aiming to change that. In May 2017, Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Cancer Foundation officially launched the new AYA Patient Navigator Program — a first for Western Canada.
_____
Jodie Jespersen is a registered nurse and the province’s first AYA patient navigator. She currently works with about 35 young cancer patients who are under the age of 30 at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.
_____
“We need to provide age-appropriate care for these young adults because they are a unique population within oncology,” says Jespersen.
_____
Young adults with cancer often feel distress over social disconnection with peers and experience isolation and questions about an uncertain future that can include career, financial and fertility issues.
_____
What Jespersen provides is individualized psychosocial support. Highly collaborative, the AYA Patient Navigator Program is the opposite of a one-sizefits- all approach. Available at any time on fairly short notice via phone calls, visits to in-patient floors and emails, Jespersen is a constant, familiar face who young patients can talk to about things other than medication side effects.
_____
Even though Hildebrand didn’t have an AYA navigator during her own cancer journey, she’s excited about what this new program will bring for the young people coming into the Cross Cancer Institute now.
_____
“Cancer is not easy. I don’t think anything we can do would make it easy. But it would have lessened the worries and hardship if I had that one person who was like, ‘I’m here for you, if you have any questions, just come to me and I’ll find the answers for you,’ I think that would have made the world of difference to me.”
