Cure: Scientific, Social, and Organizational Requirements for the Specific Cure of Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Dr. Arny Glazier, a cancer researcher, feels that deeply held assumptions, theories and dogmas about cancer are not tenable given the fundamental evolutionary nature of the disease. He has published a book, "Cure: Scientific, Social, and Organizational Requirements for the Specific Cure of Cancer." The book, which was written for both scientists and non-scientists, explains tumor cell evolution and its logical implications.

He feels that cancer is about the properties of evolutionary populations of cells. He believes that the diverse, evolutionary nature of cancer implies that the required target for the consistent and specific cure or control of cancer is "the set of all malignant cells that could evolve."

To him, the consistent and specific cure or control of cancer will require developing a set of drugs, given in combination, targeted to patterns of normal cellular machinery related to proliferation and invasiveness. These requirements define a rational, practical strategy to develop curative therapy for all forms of solid cancer. A sufficient number of independent methods of cell killing must be employed so that it is too improbable for a cancer cell to evolve that can escape death or inactivation. It must examine every cell in the body and must do so for a prolonged period of time.

Although his book may argue against the notion of personalized therapy tailored to the individual's cancer cells, given the current state of the art, in vitro drug sensitivity testing could be of significant clinical value to his premise. If an in vitro drug resistance test can demonstrate the presence of cancer cells that are resistant to a drug combination, then it is rational to use alternative therapy. If an in vitro drug sensitivity test has the ability to demonstrate which drug combinations would be synergistic to cell death in all cancer cells present, then it is rational to use the drugs indicated in the test.

Cell culture assays, using the whole cell profiling method, can assess the activity of a drug upon combined effect of all cellular process, using combined metabolic (cell metabolism) and morphologic (structure) endpoints, at the cell population level, measuring the interaction of the entire genome.

I feel the book is well worth the reading for anyone wanting a better understanding about the fight against cancer. It is available at: http://www.lulu.com/content/276115

Climb Back from Cancer - Introducing The 10 Tools of Triumph for Survivors and Caregivers

Type: 
Book
Description: 

The first book in the proposed "Climb Back from Cancer Collection", this is both a gripping true adventure story and a powerful tool kit for triumph. At the age of 42, international bestselling author and Mt. Everest climber and summiteer, Alan Hobson, beleived scaling the world's tallest peak would be the biggest challenge he would face in his life. Over a decade, he had endured three gruelling expeditions to Everest before finally standing on top of his third attempt. Then he had turned his ambition to becoming the best adventure speaker in the world. But three years after Everest, he came face to face with an even bigger mountain: he was diagnosed with acute leukemia, a cancer of the blood, and given less than a year to live. With the help of his fiancee, Cecilia, he not only survived, but thrived, and the couple emerged all the stronger from their shared trial. Climb Back from Cancer is their inspiring account of commitment, teamwork and triumph. The story offers not only a living example of how to climb back from cancer, but demonstrates how to transform adversity into opportunity. It includes The 10 Tools of Triumph for Survivors and Caregivers - what the couple considers to be the key psychological skills required to survive life-threatening illness and thive beyond it.
