August 2 addition.
I saw this article in the newspaper.
"It's a simplification, but the Awashthi/Singhal research boils down to this: A protein called RLIP76 is a multidrug transporter that shows up in cancerous cells, a sort of molecular cell train. Its presence, kicks off a toxic network of biochemical signals that promotes inflamation and cancer cell growth. Inhibit or deplete RLIP76, and the network of biochemical signals that result in cancer stops. The cancer dies. The patient lives. 'The cancer cells can't survive without RLIP76,' Awasthi says. 'Normal cells don't need RLIP76. I think it's potentially a breakthrough of major significance.'"
Mice are responding to a combination of chemotherapy and RLIP76 inhibitor for colon, lung and melanoma cancers. Unfortunately, there are some cancers that do not respond.
"The findings have been noted extensively in medical publications of LeadDiscovery, the National Institute of Environmental Health Services, the National Institutes of Health, the New England Journal of Medicine, the American Association for Cancer Research and Cancer Research Journal."
This is just a little sniglet of the article.
I thought it sounded promising and may help in a few years.

Thanks Rob.
I knew someone would find a better way to get to the information. Maybe in a few years they will find a way to eliminate(no pun intended) colon cancer. Hope it will be sooner than later.

The speed with which cancer research is progressing seems to get faster and faster. Maybe this will be sooner then a few years and save more of us. All the work with finding out what makes the cancer cells go crazy, is where the research is now and, I think, the best way to finding out the cause and cure. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to treat this disease without the harsh chemos?

Here's another great story, follow the link. I have personally invested in this vaccination. The research has been done on kidney patients who were really at the end of their options. Many of them are still alive today. It's a vaccination that will work on all cancers. In a nutshell, a sample of blood is taken from the patient, mixed with the vaccination, and injected back into the body. Three shots. Lives saved. Good clean simple math! lol Right now, the money was just given for FDA approval, and the first testing in the states is scheduled for September (original testing done in London). The researcher is from Southern Alabama University.

Stacey - I couldn't get that link to open up - but I am really interested in this trial - can you tell me the researcher's name so that I contact them and see if I might be eligible for this trial? Thanks so much.
