Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is seeking volunteers for a clinical trial for patients with human papillomavirus (HPV) positive tonsil or tongue (oropharynx) cancer whose disease has not spread outside of the neck. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and must have never, or almost never, smoked. (For medical professionals: Less than a 10 pack-year smoking history or less than a 10-year history of tobacco product use.) This trial will combine minimally invasive surgical techniques with a less intense radiation therapy and chemotherapy course. The traditional course of treatment after surgery is six weeks of daily radiation therapy and possibly high-dose chemotherapy. This study will treat patients with two weeks of low-dose chemotherapy and twice-daily radiation. The purpose of the study is to find out if reducing treatment time and dosage can control the cancer while decreasing short-term and long-term side effects associated with treatment. For more information, visit http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT01932697 or call 507-538-7623.

http://www.dailyrxnews.com/avocatin-b-fat-molecule-may-target-acute-myeloid-leukemia-stem-cells They can provide healthy vitamins, good fats and fiber — all while getting a party started. But could avocados be used to treat cancer? Avocatin B, a molecule derived from avocado fat, is now being tested in the battle against acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a deadly blood cancer that often affects the elderly. The authors of a recent study on avocatin B found that it may target AML cells without harming normal cells. According to these researchers, that means avocados could hold not only an effective AML treatment, but one that is easier on the body than current treatments. Dr. Paul Spagnuolo, a professor from the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy, led this research. AML happens when undeveloped white blood cells quickly multiply in the bone marrow and blood. Overall, about 25 percent of patients survive AML, according to the University of Rochester in New York State. Along with bone marrow transplants, AML is treated with chemotherapy and radiation, the side effects of which include nausea, fatigue, and fertility problems in both men and women. “We’ve performed many rounds of testing to determine how this new drug works at a molecular level and confirmed that it targets stem cells selectively, leaving healthy cells unharmed,” Dr. Spagnuolo said in a press release. Dr. Spagnuolo and team used high-throughput screening to observe avocatin B interacting with AML cells. High-throughput screening is the process of using lab and data-processing technology to quickly test multiple treatment methods on one disease. “It’s an exciting time for our lab. With the help of [the Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (CCRM)], we are now pursuing commercial partnership that would take avocatin B into clinical trials,” Dr. Spagnuolo said.

Meet one of Nebraska Spine Hospital's founding members and retired staff surgeon, Dr. Woodward. Hear about his background and how he got his start in medicine! [Transcript] I’m Dr. Randy Woodward. I’m a surgeon at the Nebraska Spine Hospital, in fact, I’m the chairman there. I was one of the founding members. I’m a member of the Scoliosis Research Society and have been a member of that for about 25 years. It is the premier spinal deformity society in the country, and in the world, for that matter. I’m also a member of the North American Spine Society since it was started about 25 years ago, as well. I’m also board-certified by the Orthopaedic Society and I’m a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. I’m originally from North Dakota. I grew up in a very small town, and we had a doctor there that was a general practitioner, and he was the man about town. He had the best car, the best girl, the best everything. He was the president of the golf club. I said, “Wow, I’d like to be that.” So I talked to him about it a little. He said, “You just have to really work hard, you don't have to be really smart, but you have to work hard.” So that’s what I did. I went to the university, and I was really naive. I didn't know anything about medicine except if you break a bone, they put it in a cast and you get it fixed. Next thing you know, I was in medical school, and then I went on and I thought I wanted to be a heart surgeon, but I got over at the University of Iowa for my internship and everybody there wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. I thought, “That sounds like a good idea.” I ended up going back to Chicago for my residency in orthopedic surgery, and I just happened to take a little side trip out to Los Angeles for a rotation for pediatric orthopedics. While I was out there, they were doing spine surgery. I thought, “Say this is where I want to be.” So I came back and I eventually went to Rochester, New York, ended a fellowship in spine surgery, particularly in scoliosis or spine deformity. I loved it. So then I had to go and find a job. Being a midlander here, a flatlander, I thought I’d like to be somewhere in between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains. So I wrote a letter to a man, a doctor, a spine surgeon, well-known spine surgeon up in Minneapolis, and he gave me a very good run down. He said, “but I think you should check out Omaha, because I have a friend there, and he could use some help.” So I came, I looked at Omaha. I said, “this is the place for me.” I started practice, and next thing you know, I met a girl. I married her, and then I couldn't leave Nebraska. So I’m stuck here now, and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I think all these things were just happenstance, but I don't believe in coincidences. I think we’re here for a reason.
