New Discoveries in Cancer and Heart Disease

MCED: A newly-discovered mechanism of endothelial cell death 

Using a patented laboratory test, they have discovered a new cell death pathway in endothelial cells which is referred to as Massively Calcified Endosomal Death (MCED). Exploitation of this pathway may afford an effective approach to the treatment of cancer and to the prevention and treatment of atherosclerotic vascular disease, heart attack, and stroke.

Pieces of Kristy - My Journey with Kidney Cancer & Ocular Melanoma

I had been living uninsured (and untreated) with Kidney Cancer since October 2007. In April 2014, after recently obtaining medical coverage, I was diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma of the Choroid (Ocular Melanoma) and my left eye was surgically removed (enucleation). Pieces of Kristy is about me, my journey with Kidney Cancer and Ocular Melanoma and everything in between.

The Cancer Exchange

Type: 
Web site
Description: 
Dear Members,
 
I started a new group called "The Cancer Exchange" back in March of this year. While I truly believe in the goal of the group, I am having difficulty reaching the people I need to. I am asking for your assistance in spreading the word about the group. We hope to connect friends, families, patients and survivors of cancer to one another as a means of curbing the day-to-day costs of cancer care.
 
We hope that by "recycling" resources specific to cancer, we can make a dent in costs and bring a community of help together.
 
Please consider passing our information along to anyone who might be interested.
 
Thank You,
 
Lauren

Smart Patients

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

Smart-patients-logo

Smart Patients is a website where cancer patients and caregivers can learn from each other about treatments, clinical trials, the latest science, and how it all fits into the context of their experience. At Smart Patients, the term “patients” includes family members and friends, patient advocates, and survivors who use the website on behalf of patients. They are all part of the patient community.

It is currently focusing on cancer, because patients with different cancers can learn a lot from each other, especially when they are taking similar drugs, have similar complications, etc. Cancer, treatments and side effects, where to find help, how to cope with disease, clinical trials, research into disease and treatments, prevention, recurrence, end of life, grieving, and related topics are all important topics members can help each other with.

In default of better structure in the CSN, I'm storing here references to earlier threads of particular value. [Perhaps I can organise these a bit later to channel research most effectively.]
