Jim Allison, Ph.D., Nobel Prize News Conference
MD Anderson hosted a news conference with Nobel Prize winner Jim Allison, Ph.D. Allison was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for launching an effective new way to attack cancer by treating the immune system rather than the tumor. Allison is the first MD Anderson scientist to receive the world’s most preeminent award for outstanding discoveries in the fields of life sciences and medicine. “I’m honored and humbled to receive this prestigious recognition,” Allison said. “A driving motivation for scientists is simply to push the frontiers of knowledge. I didn’t set out to study cancer, but to understand the biology of T cells, these incredible cells that travel our bodies and work to protect us.” Allison started his career at MD Anderson in 1977, arriving as one of the first employees of a new basic science research center located in Smithville, Texas. He was recruited back to MD Anderson in November 2012 to lead the Immunology Department and to establish an immunotherapy research platform for MD Anderson’s Moon Shots Program. The prize recognizes Allison’s basic science discoveries on the biology of T cells, the adaptive immune system’s soldiers, and his invention of immune checkpoint blockade to treat cancer. Allison’s crucial insight was to block a protein on T cells that acts as a brake on their activation, freeing the T cells to attack cancer. He developed an antibody to block the checkpoint protein CTLA-4 and demonstrated the success of the approach in experimental models. His work led to development of the first immune checkpoint inhibitor drug. Ipilimumab was approved for late-stage melanoma by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011. His drug, known commercially as Yervoy, became the first to extend the survival of patients with late-stage melanoma. Follow-up studies show 20 percent of those treated live for at least three years with many living for 10 years and beyond, unprecedented results. Subsequent research has extended this approach to new immune regulatory targets, most prominently PD-1 and PD-L1, with drugs approved to treat certain types and stages of melanoma, lung, kidney, bladder, gastric, liver, cervical, colorectal, and head and neck cancers and Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Clinical trials are underway in many other cancer types.

HIPEC: New Hope for Children with Cancer
Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) is an innovative treatment for advanced abdominal cancers. With HIPEC, high doses of heated chemotherapy aim to destroy cancer cells that remain in the abdomen after surgery. On September 30th, 2011, the medical team of Miami Children's Hospital performed the first HIPEC or "heated chemotherapy" surgical treatment on a pediatric patient. The hand-picked team was led by Miami Children's Interim Chief of Pediatric Surgery Dr. Cathy Burnweit and HIPEC pioneer Dr. Andrea Hayes-Jordan, Associate Professor and Director of Pediatric Surgical Oncology at The MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital in Houston, Texas. Hayes-Jordan is believed to be the first and only surgeon in the country to perform the adult procedure on children using heated chemotherapy. The patient, 8-year-old Kelly of Miami, who has been in the care of Miami Children's since 2006 and has undergone a series of treatments for a recurrent form of cancer in her abdomen, is doing very well following the treatment. Kelly's hematologist/oncologist Dr. Guillermo De Angulo, of Miami Children's Hospital's Cancer Center, said, "We knew we had exhausted available treatments for Kelly. When Kelly's mother heard Dr. Hayes-Jordan speak at an on-campus lecture for the MCH medical staff, she knew HIPEC was something she wanted to attempt for Kelly. Thanks to this collaboration, we were able to make that dream come true." Dr. Cathy Burnweit, said, "Kelly has exceeded our recovery expectations. Our hopes are high that this intervention will offer her and her family a brighter future." The Florida procedure will also lead to greater access to the HIPEC intervention for other children who meet the criteria for treatment.

Pancreatic Cancer | Dr. Tony Talebi discusses "What is pancreatic cancer?" with Dr Montero
Dr Tony Talebi discusses general concepts of pancreatic cancer with Dr Montero. For further discussion visit http://www.HemOnc101.com Dr. Talebi's practice, Miami Hematology and Oncology Associates is located at 151 NW 11th street, Suite W303. Homestead, Fl 33030. Tel 786-504-3084 Pancreatic cancer Cancer of the pancreas is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States and is second only to colorectal cancer as a cause of digestive cancer-related death. The majority of these tumors are "adenocarcinomas" arising from the ductal lining of the pancreatic epithelial cells. Surgical resection is the only potentially curative treatment. Unfortunately, because of the late presentation of the disease, only 15 to 20 percent of patients are candidates for pancreatectomy. The prognosis of pancreatic cancer is poor even in those with potentially resectable disease. The five-year survival following pancreaticoduodenectomy (Whipple procedure) is only about 25 to 30 percent for node-negative and 10 percent for node-positive tumors. Encasement of the arteries and veins in the vicinity of the pancreas generally make the tumor not resectable although each case has to be reviewed by an experienced surgeon. Here, Dr. Tony Talebi discusses general concepts of pancreatic cancer with Dr. Alberto Montero, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center including symptoms of, diagnosis, staging, surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer.

PARP Inhibitors Improve Outcomes, QOL in Breast Cancer
When given an oral agent such as a PARP inhibitor, patients with metastatic breast cancer reported that they felt more in control of their life, something that Jennifer Litton, MD, of the The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Department of Breast Medical Oncology, called a “game changer.” While these agents improve quality of life, they are also proving to be clinically efficacious, too. Both the EMBRACA trial (studying talazoparib in patients with metastatic breast cancer with a BRCA mutation) and the OLYMPIAD trial (studying olaparib for patients with metastatic breast cancer with a BRCA mutation) are showing that PARP inhibition therapy can improve treatment outcomes compared to standard-of-care chemotherapy in this patient population.

The risk of infection for CLL patients receiving idelalisib
William Wierda, MD, PhD from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX discusses the safety of idelalisib for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Dr Wierda outlines the risk of infection for previously untreated patients and discusses the higher incidences of deaths observed in patients treated with idelalisib in randomized trials comparing idelalisib with chlorambucil. According to Dr Wierda, idelalisib is probably not an appropriate first-line treatment but has a place in salvage therapy. In terms of infections, he discusses the need to give prophylaxis for herpes virus and pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) as well as the need for monitoring for cytomegalovirus (CMV). Recorded at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2016 Annual Meeting held in Chicago, IL.
How to Identify and Correct a Hiatal Hernia: Part 1
Make sure to watch part 2 for self help techniques https://youtu.be/xX0zKB2_-UM And read the article about hiatal hernia at http://www.modernherbalmedicine.com/articles/hiatal-hernia-hidden-cause-of-chronic-illness-2.html. In answer to all the critics who comment on this video, I'd like to make a few points. First, the woman I was doing this to was my fiancé and became my wife. She has already posted comments on this video indicating how much this helped her asthma and improved her health. Second, I am not a doctor, so when I've done this with people I have not charged them for doing it. I've done it for FREE, which means I get no financial gain from helping people with these techniques. The fact is, that these techniques work and if you read through the comments you'll find many people indicating how much this has helped them. I learned this from a naturopath who did it to me and it did more to improve my health than anything I've ever had done for me. He did this with hundreds of people and has taught it to dozens of others who have also helped hundreds of people. This procedure is harmless and non-invasive. If it doesn't work or help, then go to a doctor and have surgery. It doesn't hurt to try things like this first. I'm not opposed to doctors or medicine, I just think that harmless, non-invasive techniques should be tried first when there are non-life-threatening health problems like this. Also, for all of you who want to make rude comments about Elena (the lady in the video) , she and I were married shortly after this, and although we still aren't together, she is a very sweet and wonderful person and we are still good friends. I don't allow rude comments to be posted about her. She responded to some of the naysayers about this clip (which if you scroll down far enough you'll find) in these words: "This technique is very effective. Steven helped me a lot. I suffered from asthma attack and could not breath normally and after applying this technique once a day hiatal hernia stopped bothering me." Also, at the time this video was shot she was using inhalers every day. Now she keeps an emergency inhaler, but she rarely has to use it.

ONCOLOGY MEDFORD OREGON LOW GRADE LYMPHOMA CANCER GUIDE UNDERSTANDING CANCER TREATMENT. The B-cell lymphomas are types of lymphoma affecting B cells. Lymphomas are "blood cancers" in the lymph glands. They develop more frequently in older adults and in immunocompromised individuals. B-cell lymphomas include both Hodgkin's lymphomas and most non-Hodgkins lymphomas. They are often divided into indolent (slow-growing) lymphomas and aggressive lymphomas. Indolent lymphomas respond rapidly to treatment and are kept under control (in remission) with long-term survival of many years, but are not cured. Aggressive lymphomas usually require intensive treatments, but have good prospects for a permanent cure.[1] Prognosis and treatment depends on the specific type of lymphoma as well as the stage and grade. Treatment includes radiation and chemotherapy. Early-stage indolent B-cell lymphomas can often be treated with radiation alone, with long-term non-reoccurrence. Early-stage aggressive disease is treated with chemotherapy and often radiation, with a 70-90% cure rate.[1] Late-stage indolent lymphomas are sometimes left untreated and monitored until they progress. Late-stage aggressive disease is treated with chemotherapy, with cure rates of over 70%.[1] BILL KEEFER, MEDFORD OREGON VIDEOS PRESENTS LYMPHOMA GRADING LOW GRADE CANCER

Novel Analysis Method Organizes Genomic Cancer Data
Multiplicity concepts can organize large amounts of varied genetic data into three-dimensional models. These models can reveal previously unknown relationships among genes involved with different cancers. They make whole-genome data more usable for both clinical and laboratory researchers--opening the door to new clinical trials and helping focus the search for cancer-causing mutations. Full Press Release: SALT LAKE CITY—The technology that allows scientists to profile the entire genome of individual tumors offers new hope for discovering ways to select the best treatment for each patient's particular type of cancer. However, these profiles produce huge amounts of data, and the volume alone creates unique analytical problems. In a study published on-line this week in the journal BMC Medical Genomics, researchers from Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah describe a new analytical approach based on a concept called multiplicity, that can organize large amounts of varied genetic data. The method allows researchers to create three-dimensional models revealing previously unknown relationships among the genes involved with different types of cancer. "This technique shows similar genetic profiles for different types of cancers, which could open the door to trials of already approved drugs for additional cancers," said Lewis Frey, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and an HCI investigator. "It can bring to light previously unknown genetic connections between different cancers, helping focus the search for cancer-causing genetic mutations. It makes whole genome data more usable for both clinical and laboratory researchers." Stephen R. Piccolo, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah, and Mary E. Edgerton, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Pathology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, are co-authors of the article. The study was funded in part by an Incentive Seed Grant from the University of Utah, and a National Library of Medicine training grant.
