Environmental Cancer Causing Agents Act at the DNA Level

Dear Friend,

Recently we marked the annual observance of World Cancer Day, an event that originated in 2000 during the first World Summit against Cancer. Professor Colin Goding, a cancer researcher at Oxford University, took the opportunity to sit down for an interview about the current and future state of cancer treatment.

How researchers study cancer

According to Dr. Goding, the cellular events leading to the development of cancer are relatively complicated. Our bodies have systems to block mutated cells that lead to tumors, so those systems need to break down, allowing the mutations to take hold while accelerator cells push growth into overdrive.

Melanoma, or skin cancer, is one of the more common forms of the disease. It begins in the cells that manufacture melanin, which is a pigment controlling skin, eye and hair color. Dr. Goding cited melanoma as a good model for researchers to follow all stages of development, as opposed to forms like lung cancer that have already progressed by the time symptoms present.

Where does treatment go from here?

Dr. Goding sees the most promise for the future in two methods that are used in our immuno-oncology center. One is the ongoing development of drugs that reactivate the body's immune system to attack cancer cells. The other is a focus on changing the micro-environment, which consists of the elements involved in the growth or regression of tumors.

Our Issels® Caner Immunotherapy Centers have been ahead of the curve in the use of non-toxic therapies that stimulate the immune system and target a tumor's micro-environment. Visit our website to learn more about our personalized treatment protocols today.

Cancer Risks Are Linked to Cell Division

At Rice University they are blowing up cancer cells with nanoparticle "bombs". Like integrative immunotherapy, the new cancer-fighting technique kills cancer cells without harming surrounding healthy cells. Cancer is effected by numerous and complex risk factors, making concepts related to calculating its risk a frequent subject of debate. Adding to this debate is a recent study looking at randomly mutating cells, specifically how they play a predominant role in cancer development. What does this say about your cancer risk?

Scientists Discover Gene 'Anchor' Linked to Spread of Lung Cancer

One of the world's deadliest cancers, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. Its ability to metastasize and quickly spread to other organs in the body is what makes lung cancer so deadly. A new genetic discovery by scientists at the Salk Institute in California may help researchers devise a way to keep lung cancer from spreading and dramatically improve the long-term outcome of this deadly form of cancer.
