I think that many of us will be interested in some new info. This relates to Celebrex, an anti-rheumatic/anti-inflammatory/painkilling drug which is already being used by very many people for arthritis etc. It is known to help prevent the development of Polyps in those with a family history of polyposis. It is now being used with various chemotherapy drugs and trials are ongoing to see how much it might help. The theory seems to be that it interferes with the development of blood supply to the growing tumor.Please see the article on colon cancer at
The interesting thing is towards the end of the article where it says that good results are being obtained by combining celecoxib with radiation (or radioablation). This should be encouraging to those of us with stage 3 and 4. (C and D) I tracked this down a while ago but it is just now that the information is being published and I think there are more trial results pending. It will take a while. Please do understand that we are not talking "cure" here but the development is very interesting and might be of value to at least some of us. Or maybe I should be more optimistic and say that things might turn out well and surprise us all. I'll be interested to hear what your opinions are. Sorry about the long web address but I'm fairly new to all this and I do not know how to shorten it. (Follow the signs to Treatment of Colon Cancer.)Blessings to us all.
