its specific for colorectal, i am getting a scan wednesday and i will see how effective the antibody therapy removab and the chemo embolization has been as well as the light chemo.

the vaccine stuff is documented on my blog.

but steve this science is amazing, a sincere thanks, i imagine everyone reads these fantastic discoveries but few comment.

i diligently bring these discoveries to my onc attention, it kind of says i want to live, if i want the onc to go that extra mile. it cannot hurt and it may help you get the personalised care we all need. just my opinion suggestion.

i have lots of friends and other colorectals and i often put your links on my blog.

thanks heaps steve,

its just fantastic that you keep the research flowing straight into the community here.

hugs,
pete

Pete - where can I find out more about this vaccine? It sounds very interesting if not promising.

If one of the TGF-betas is the active culprit where perhaps resveratrol and vitamin D3 might modulate an imbalance or inhibit an excess TGF-beta, who is in favor of waiting 10-20 years for a $10-20,000 per month treatment that has serious side effects? Not us - already done, with thanks to Life Extension and other therapeutic nutritionists.

Tans, what do you think about bromolean (sp)??

This is a recent review of bromolien Lots of promise that a sporting person may find merit. However, we do believe in multiple prongs of attack, too, rather than depending on standalone functions.

We've used serrapeptase/serrazyme for an anti-inflammatory enzyme. I am not sure about relative quantities for overlapping areas of performance. The hardest for my wife is finding an empty stomach time interval for best absorption without protein interference (protein breakdown) from other food or caps spent by the protease. Probably first thing in the morning is her clearest spot.

as per: eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2012-11/pcc-aso111312.php
(with link to original article)

I used to get LEF mag for free but they stopped sending it.....very well-documented....(health food store that gave it out sometimes ruined due to Sandy,-Sheepshead Bay got hit real bad;never EVER would have thought water would inundate and flood us 1/2 mile away from Bay itself!!!!).....................................

And...........if you go into the "cancer" section of healthcanal.com
you'll find an article:"Hans Clevers:"Every day new research is showing us that many types of cancers are fed by tumour stem cells""

Hello colocan, I have tried to visit the website for information on the above mentioned discovery, no luck. I have tried to find out more information from colleagues at the hospital that I work at, no luck there either. We are only a small hospital and not cancer centric. Is it a German discovery and I would be grateful for any further information you can provide. Cheers. dinkydi8
