Thoracic surgeon Dr. Marcello Migliore is convinced that adding hyperthermic intrathoracic chemotherapy to aggressive surgery can extend survival significantly for patients with pleural mesothelioma cancer. He wants others to know that, too.

How genetic testing and precision medicine are improving cancer outcomes
Cancer may not bring DNA and genetics to mind, but all cancer is caused by gene damage. Treatments in the past have typically meant surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy — sometimes all three. Now, oncologists have added DNA testing to their treatment tools. There are two major uses for genetic testing in cancer care. One is testing DNA to determine cancer predisposition, which is also referred to as hereditary cancer, and the other is testing the tumor itself to look for DNA changes that can be… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Physician Practices headlines)

Clocks, cancer, and chronochemotherapy
The circadian clock coordinates daily rhythmicity of biochemical, physiologic, and behavioral functions in humans. Gene expression, cell division, and DNA repair are modulated by the clock, which gives rise to the hypothesis that clock dysfunction may predispose individuals to cancer. Although the results of many epidemiologic and animal studies are consistent with there being a role for the clock in the genesis and progression of tumors, available data are insufficient to conclude that clock disruption is generally carcinogenic. Similarly, studies have suggested a circadian time-dependent efficacy of chemotherapy, but cli...
