can be found (i hope)at: prnewswire.com
once on main page ,look at upper right for search box,type in SIR-spheres,check the "News Release" button and you should get "Largest Comparative Study of Radioembolisation Shows.....",dated march 23

Again,might be worth the trouble to access.......

its funny to think they have been this for years here, in my colorectal group. i took it for granted, must be a few advantages to being an aussie. its nice to know our scientists are helping the world wide colorectal fight.

thanks steve.

hugs,
pete

working on defeating cancer but it seems as if each is focusing on a different aspect,gene,pathway,etc. Almost every week someone,somewhere "discovers" something that may or may not be a new predictor,target,etc....As i mention elsewhere, a protein named Lrig1 which resides in the "intestinal crypt" has been found ,"which may act as a brake on cell growth and proliferation."......

And another researcher's thoughts:

(rather blunt stat in this one for those not into such figures).....

So many genes/proteins/pathways have been indentified in the past year or two that i've read of and there's undoubtedly so much more i haven't heard of.......As we live longer, its been said that one in two men and one in three women in the US will be diagnosed with some variety of cancer.
