Brought to you by Bill Luke: http://billluke.com A Phoenix high school student heads to Washington to share his story of beating cancer, but he didn't defeat the disease in the United States. That's because the drug he needed wasn't available in this country, so his parents moved to Europe. Now he'll be asking lawmakers to make it easier for sick patients to get their hands on a potentially life-saving treatment not available in the U.S. For nine months, Diego Morris and his family lived in the United Kingdom. He and his brother attended a British school and he saw British doctors. He will be telling lawmakers about his family's decision and how it likely saved his life. Diego was a healthy growing 11-year-old. He played sports and stayed busy, then everything changed. "I started feeling some sharp pain in my knee and it continued for about a week," he said. An x-ray revealed a rare bone cancer, Osteosarcoma, often seen in teenagers. Surgery removed most of the tumor and repaired his leg, but Diego needed more treatment. A drug called Mifamurtide or MPT, showed promise It's been approved in Europe, but not in the U.S. Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Ranking Member Tom Carper (D-Del.) will hold a hearing on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016 to examine the barriers preventing terminally ill patients and those with debilitating diseases from accessing new and potentially life-saving therapies.

The Telomere and Telomerase Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) has shown that it is possible to block the growth of human and murine glioblastoma in mouse models by blocking the TRF1 protein; an essential component of the telomere-protective complex known as shelterin. The study, published in Cancer Cell, describes a new and promising way to combat this type of brain tumour, considered one of the most lethal and difficult to treat, by attacking its ability to regenerate and divide immortally.

Opinion Makers is an exclusive MedPage Today video series, presenting leaders from all areas of medicine, offering their views on current topics in clinical care, research, and policy. In this video, urologic oncologist Derek Raghavan, MD, PhD, questions the feasibility of a “Moon Shots” program to cure cancer, as President Obama called for in his last State of the Union Address. How can we aim for the moon when we can’t solve a most basic problem that has persisted for more than a decade: a chronic shortage of key drugs used to treat a variety of cancers. Transcript: I heard the other day that war has been declared on cancer for the third time in the last 40 years. The first time was when President Richard Nixon declared war in 1971 and it was due to be won 20 years later. Then one of the directors of the National Cancer Institute declared war and that was due to be completed in 2015. We missed by just a little bit. And so now once again we’re on the frontlines in a new war. Let me be clear; I’m delighted that the president has focused interest on cancer and has offered more funding. We definitely need funding for cancer research. However, for some of my colleagues in science to jump on the bandwagon and create moon shots and a challenge to be done by 2020, it’s just ridiculous. It isn’t going to happen. Cancer is a bunch of diseases, the population is aging and changing, there are new threats to us at all the time. And so it’s much more sensible to think about the current presidential challenge to make progress, not put a finite time on it and actually focus our efforts in a more sensible way. One of the big problems with having the situation of a war on cancer due to finish in 2020 is it sets false expectations. It creates a situation where the community is expecting a finite result by a set time and that puts the physicians, who are actually on the line treating cancer, in an impossible situation. The community at large thinks “my doctor can’t be up-to-date if he hasn’t figured out how to cure a cancer. It’s only just a couple of years away.” And so physicians and other clinicians are put in the impossible position where they simply have to offer treatment when it’s really not appropriate. The reality of the situation today is some patients are going to die of their cancers. And if that’s so an educated and responsible clinician feels it’s time to quit, then we should be bringing in palliative medicine and not forcing the patient to have treatment looking for a grail that doesn’t exist. One of the things that really bothers me with the recent political involvement in the war on cancer is I’ve been hearing for 5 to 10 years that the supply of anti-cancer drugs is going to be regularized once and for all. However, as recently as a few days ago, I read a report that pediatric cancer patients were undergoing rationing of agents because of a lack of constancy of supply. I want government to take a more active stance in the cancer battle but as partners. And they have to do the legislative pieces to allow us to be successful and to provide life-saving drugs that keep seeming to run out. The war on cancer is a great idea to focus the community attention on a tough disease. But let’s make it a realistic war without a specific end date and let’s just focus on curing cancer when we’re able to do it. Raghavan is president of Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, N.C. An authority on prostate and other genitourinary cancers, Raghavan previously was director of the Taussig Cancer Center at the Cleveland Clinic and held faculty, administrative, and clinical positions at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, N.Y.

Recurring glioblastoma is one of the deadliest forms of brain cancer. Patients normally survive just 15 months from diagnosis. But California researchers conducted a clinical trial using DNA and RNA sequencing of a patient's tumor to determine treatment for patients in real time. According to UPI, results of the trial showed that several patients with recurring glioblastoma survived more than a year after informed treatment. Glioblastomas surround brain tissue, making it impossible to completely surgically remove all of the tumor in the brain. The other challenge to effective treatment is being able to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, thus buffering the brain from the body's circulatory system. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/10/27/Researchers-use-patients-DNA-to-inform-treatment-decisions/7861509133886/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

All music in this video was written and performed by Keldon Plude Copyright (c) 2011. Rebecca Elizabeth Plude né Kiehl of Davis, CA left this world on October 9, 2007 at Sutter Memorial Hospital after being diagnosed a year before with the rare autoimmune disease Scleroderma. She died of complications due to this and recently diagnosed cancer. Becky was born February 26, 1958 in Cleveland, Ohio. She spent her childhood and youth in Parma, Ohio. As a teen she served as lifeguard and participated in synchronized swimming at the Parma City pools. She also worked as a camp leader for mentally challenged children, instilling in her a lifelong desire to help other people. Her participation in junior high and high school choir would lead to a permanent love of music. She graduated with honors from Parma Senior High School in 1976. Becky attended Cleveland State University, graduating with honors with a degree in physical therapy in 1980. She paid her own way through college, working as many as three jobs at a time. After college, she lived in Michigan and had two children, Phillip Alex (b. 1985) and Keldon Robert (b. 1987) with her first husband. From 1980 through 1989 she held various director positions in acute care, physical therapy facilities and Community Mental Health programs. She moved back to Ohio with her children in 1989. As a single mother, she raised and home-schooled her two sons as a member of the Ohio Home-school Educators Network (OHEN). In addition, she attended seminars at the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (IHAP) in order to optimize the life of her older son who was born with special needs. In 1990 she met her future second husband, Bryan Plude, at West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church in Rocky River, Ohio. Bryan and Rebecca were married on March 21, 1992 and continued to home-school Alex and Keldon. She returned to school to obtain a masters degree in education from Cleveland State University, also receiving a supplementary teaching certificate from the Association Montessori International (AMI). In 1996 Becky's third child, Miakoda Alexandra, was born in their loving home in Cleveland, Ohio. Shortly thereafter the family moved to California where Becky continued to work as a physical therapist. Even with three children, Becky still had much more love in her heart to give; She and Bryan decided to become foster parents. Jeanine Marie (b. 1999) became a Plude when she was adopted in 2001. Becky's love and devotion to all of her family members has been one of her most outstanding qualities throughout her entire life. Rebecca had a deep love for people and for justice, and from those came a strong passion for education, especially for children and young adults who typically fall through the cracks. She has spent much of her life working to realize her vision of an educational paradigm that truly teaches racial and environmental justice, health, and wholeness. A trained Montessori teacher, she worked hard for Yocha-de-he Prep School, carefully crafting an infant toddler program and a preschool program for Native American children. Her latest dream of a paradigm shift for education is a private preschool and elementary school slated to open in August of 2008 in West Sacramento. Having worked countless hours over the last year developing the plans for the Children's Village School, Rebecca most recently held focus groups and recruited and trained the Board of Directors. People were drawn to her the moment she began to weave her beautiful word pictures depicting her image of this school. Overflowing with the promise of her powerful vision, CVS will use Montessori pedagogy in a bilingual setting, offering an exploration of the world's cultures and faiths to children of all ability levels. The realization of this institution will be one of the many marks she leaves on the world. Rebecca's untimely death represents a significant loss for countless children and families who would have continued to benefit from her thirst for equality and justice and dedication to an educational paradigm of wholeness. Becky is survived by her husband Bryan Plude, children Alex, Keldon, Miakoda, and Jeanine, Mother Sandra Kiehl of Dayton, OH, Father Robert Kiehl Sr. of Fort Meyers, FL, siblings and their spouses Robert Jr. and Lyn, Thomas and Jeanette, Michael and Charlene, and Nancy Kiehl and Frank Wylie. The family has requested in lieu of flowers that donations be made to The Scleroderma Foundation at www.sclerodermafoundation.org.

An autologous transplant is a type of procedure that uses the person's own stem cells. They are used to replace stem cells that have been damaged by high doses of chemotherapy, used to treat the person's underlying disease. Dr P V Mahajan speaks about curing cancer with stem cell treatment. In a conference in Ohio State University, US he spoke about the use of stem cell treatment to cure cancer. Being an expert in autologous stem cell research and treatment, Dr P V Mahajan strongly believes that with stem cell’s power cancer can be fought.

AURIC (Auburn University) researchers are pursuing genetic approaches to better understand both the causes of cancer, and ways to treat it using a one-health approach. By working with dogs, which have many of the same cancers as humans, we learn about treating both humans and dogs. In breast cancer, researchers have identified multiple mutations in the dog that mirror mutations in women. These mutations give us an understanding of the pathway that a cell takes when it becomes cancerous. Researchers at Auburn are also using genetics to create new therapies for cancer. In the case of osteosarcoma, they have harnessed a canine virus, engineering it to attack bone cancer cells, in an attempt to treat dogs with this disease. http://www.auriconline.org

Within this framework of personalized health care, OSU Medical Center is focused on achieving and maintaining prominence in six Signature Programs: cancer, critical care, heart, imaging, neurosciences and transplantation. Three programs have been identified as Key Research Programs across all disciplines: behavioral medicine, biomedical informatics and genetics. These initiatives are taking place within OSUs College of Medicine, more than a dozen affiliated research centers and six hospitals, in which more than 50,000 inpatients receive medical care annually. These hospitals are the only ones in central Ohio to be consistently ranked each year among Americas Best by U.S.News & World Report. The hospitals include: University Hospital and University Hospital East, OSU Medical Centers two full-service hospitals; Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital, dedicated to the study, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases; OSU Harding Hospital, an inpatient and outpatient psychiatric hospital; and OSU Rehabilitation Services at Dodd Hall, one of Americas top 10 rehabilitation centers. In addition, the Medical Center includes a unified physician practice, representing more than 700 pre-eminent physicians and a network of community-based primary and subspecialty care facilities that manage more than 900,000 patient visits each year. Adjacent to OSU Medical Center is Ohio States James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, a dedicated cancer hospital and research center with its own governance structure separate from but coordinated with the Medical Center. In the 2010 edition of Americas Best Graduate Schools, U.S. News ranked the College of Medicine 27th among Americas 125 medical schools and 20 schools of osteopathic medicine. Admission to the medical school is competitive, with more than 4,100 student applications for 220 admissions annually. OSU Medical Centers economic impact on the Columbus economy is nearly $1.5 billion annually. With more than 13,000 employees, the Medical Center accounts for more than $31.2 million in state income tax revenue alone. Business First newspaper named OSU Medical Center one of the best places in central Ohio to work in 2009 for the third year in a row.

For Asian Americans or Pacific Islanders and American Indians or Alaska Natives, heart disease is second only to cancer.Heart Disease Scope and Impact Photo Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives than all forms of cancer combined. *Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing nearly 380,000 people annually. In the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. Every 60 seconds, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event. *About 720,000 people in the U.S. suffer heart attacks each year. Of these, 515,000 are a first heart attack and 205,000 happen in people who have already had a heart attack. *In 2011, about 326,200 people experienced out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the United States. Of those treated by emergency medical services, 10.6 percent survived. Of the 19,300 bystander-witnessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the same year, 31.4 percent survived. *Direct and indirect costs of heart disease total more than $320.1 billion. That includes health expenditures and lost productivity. Women & Heart Disease *Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. *While 1 in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 dies of heart disease.Women-and-Heart-Disease-Image Heart disease causes 1 in 3 women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute. *Only 1 in 5 American women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat. *An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease. Ninety percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease. The symptoms of heart disease can be different in women and men, and are often misunderstood. Women and men are not the same when it comes to heart disease. 1.
