Thanks to John on KIDNEY-ONC for flagging up two recent developments that hold out great hope for truly radical new approaches to tackling cancer (and maybe also heart attacks and stroke). The two links he has given are good summaries - see below. (The Nature article is behind a pay-wall but most of us would find it, like all Nature articles, so high-powered and specialised that we wouldn't understand a word of it anyway unless we were in the relevant field.)

How soon there is a pay-off from these discoveries about hypoxia and its ramifications who knows but they hold out great cause for hope.
