Controlling Cancer: How To Boost Your NK Cells
If your doctor puts you on a statin for cholesterol, prepare to be on it for life. If you have high blood pressure, you can be sure you'll be filling that prescription forever. Diabetic? You can look forward to decades of metformin. Big Pharma seems to have a "treatment" for every disease. But they rarely have a "cure." You see, the longer you take their "medicine," the more money they make. And now they're trying to do the same thing with chemotherapy drugs. A group of researchers from Oregon and the U.K. just created a new drug delivery system for cancer. It's called "metronomic dosage regimen." 1 The goal? To never get you off chemo. One of the researchers involved with the new chemo therapy said it would be a "huge leap forward" in cancer treatment. Maybe for profits, but not for your health. Side Effects of Chemo Right now, most cancer patients get the highest dose of chemo possible for as long as the patient can tolerate it. Doctors only stop the treatments when you can't handle the horrible side effects anymore. Side effects like nausea, vomiting, pain, extreme fatigue, blood disorders, mouth and throat sores… Chemotherapy destroys your immune system. And the irony is that a strong and robust immune system is your body's first line of defense against developing cancer in the first place. Your immune system has its own "hit squad" of natural killer (NK) cells. At the first sign o...
Authors: DiCaprio MR, Abousayed MM, Kambam MLR Abstract Melanoma is an aggressive form of skin cancer associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Although commonly seen in dermatologist clinics, orthopaedic surgeons must be aware of these lesions in various ways. The five common musculoskeletal manifestations of melanoma will be discussed as well as the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, staging, treatment, and prognosis of melanoma. With an index of suspicion and awareness of melanoma, a thorough history and detailed physical examination are critical in establishing a diagnosis. An adequately performe...

Authors: Gavrila IL, Badea RI, Jude C, Socaciu MA, Comsa M, Badea AF Abstract Abdominal ultrasound (US) performed as a "primary imaging procedure" is an important diagnostic tool in gastroenterol-ogy. Expanding the routine investigation to the lower thoracic region might sometimes accelerate the diagnosis in inconclusive manifestations such as pulmonary pathology.US is a valuable tool in evaluating patients with breathing difficulties, chest pain, hypoxia, or chest trauma. This paper presents the particular situation of a patient hospitalized in the gastroenterology depart-ment, where the US identified si...
CONCLUSION: Ultrasound and MRI have similar diagnostic performance for detecting parametrial infiltration in women with cervical cancer. This might have relevance from the clinical point of view, since ultrasound is cheaper than MRI. PMID: 32096793 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
