They was an article in the NY Post and on Fox News about a cancer blocking miracle drug that was developed at Stanford University. It was a very short article that only said it is a drug that blocks the CD47 protein in the blood. That protein is what keeps the body from destroying the cancerous cells. So far it has only been used on mice, but has destroyed every cancer cell it came into contact with. John

That's very encouraging, let's hope they can finish their testing & get it approved so they can make it available quickly!

I am glad that the Stanford University information was found.

 

The New York Post is a tabloid rag and I am sure with that headline was trying to sell their newspaper.   Their most important section is called Page 6, which is gossip news.

 

Let us all hope that Stanford researchers have the answer to what we have been hoping for, for so many years.

Jim,

  You are the go to guy with things like this. There's a big article on The Huffington Post about clinical trials for the CD-47 blocker. I do not know how to post it. I know you do. Give it a try.Thanks, John

Liz,

  Thanks for asking. Yes I am doing fine. Hope you are doing better as well. Feeling even better after hearing this break thru news. Hope it works out as they say.  It would be the discovery of the century for sure. Yes, I celebrate EASTER, CHRISTMAS and all the holidays. Its really a shame people have to ask if you celebrate certain holidays. I feel the same way as you about asking if people reconize certain holidays. I said MERRY CHRISTMAS to a little kid at the store one day last year and her mother looked at me like I was an ax murderer. Then she said to her little girl, " Let's go see if daddy got the Holiday tree yet". When I was growing up and my kids were growing up we looked forward to celebrating ALL the holidays and still do.  John

John and everyone,

Promising info!  Things keep changing all the time.  Went to a Lymphoma Research Foundation meeting and they said that often they print info only to find that 2 weeks later it's outdated!!  Very very cool!!  Go researchers!

 

Thanks for finding it John!

Hi John,

We finally had some time to check this out.  How encouraging.  We have 2 friends with breast cancer that they can't get a handle on.  We have sent the articles to them and are so encouraged that the latest article March 30 that Jim sent says they have just received a 20 million grant to start clinical trials.  So run don't walk to your oncologist!  It's interesting that with Mantle Cell it is the CD20 protein rather than CD47 and it sounds to us that Bill's rituxan infusion before his chemo and now rit maintenance does the same thing.  He has an onc appt. the end of the month and we will certainly be asking whether this also applies to him.  Thanks so much for sharing.   This could be a real life saver.

Good thoughts to you all, Bill & Becky

Jim,

  That is great news to hear. Makes me wonder if they are doing even more studies on the drug. I would think now that they found some of the ingredients have other properties they would be looking into it more. It may be a money issue too. Can you imagine if they would come out with a cure. The drug companies would suffer. That thought scares me with any results. Remember they had a cure for TB back in the early 50's, but it was never revealed until the mid 60's. The drug companies in the meantime got richer. It is something to think about. Surprised  John

Becky,

  Did you ever stop to think how old you might feel if you weren't taking the metformin. LOL
