    Biotech company PharmAust (ASX: PAA) has officially begun recruitment for the phase IIb trial of its lead anti-cancer drug monepantel (MPL) on canine lymphoma and has put a call out for more dogs to participate. The trial will test the effects of MPL upon pet owners’ dogs with treatment-naïve B cell lymphoma – that is, dogs that have not undergone any treatment for this cancer. PharmAust today confirmed “several” dogs have been successfully recruited and have started treatment with MPL tablets. Meanwhile, six other dogs that were not eligible for the trial have commenced treatment with the tablets on a...

    Dr. Brett Parkinson, the medical director of Intermountain Healthcare’s Breast Care Center, reiterated that before the vaccine, enlarged lymph nodes were a red flag. “Whenever we see these on a normal screening mammogram we call those patients back, because it can either mean metastatic breast cancer which has traveled to the lymph nodes, or lymphoma or leukemia,” he told KTSU-TV. “With the Moderna vaccine it’s about 11% after the first dose and 16% after the second dose. We believe it’s comparable for the Pfizer vaccine as well.” Dr. Porpiglia said women who have received the vaccine may be able to...

    The knives were out for me in January 2017 when I arrived in Washington as the White House correspondent for the Las Vegas Review-Journal. You see, I worked for what scolds liked to call Sheldon Adelson's paper -- and that was a no-no. Adelson died Monday night, and I never got a chance to say this. Had he given me marching orders? I heard that question a lot in 2017. In fact, I didn't meet or talk to Adelson until 2018, when I introduced myself at an event ahead of the Jerusalem Embassy opening. The "marching orders" question is one...

The Oncologist does not think now that she will go into remission & may not leave the hospital.

    Dan Bongino confirmed to fans on his radio show that he does, in fact, have cancer.

I’ve received an overwhelming amount of support. Unfortunately, it is cancer. It’s lymphoma – the Hodgkin’s type. But it is treatable.” Bongino told his fans, “I feel like I owe you an update. I’m...

    From Dan Bongino just a few minutes ago: Thank you all for your kind words & well wishes. I’m out of surgery & I feel good. They removed the entire tumor from my neck. The bad news is, it looks like lymphoma. The good news is, there are treatments options. Either way, it’ll be okay. Thank you all for your support 👍

    In early September of this year my wife starting having problems with her feet going numb. Because she had no feeling in her feet she couldn't maintain her balance and it's become harder and harder to walk. The numbness has spread and now she can't feel her legs and even has occasional tightness in her chest. When we have to do any walking outside she now sits in a wheelchair and I push her around. She has been getting a lot of tests done and the doctors believe it is now either Sarcoidosis or Lymphoma. She is going in for...

    An experimental cancer vaccine showed promise in a small clinical trial, according to a study in Nature Medicine. Mount Sinai tested the treatment in 11 patients with lymphoma. The vaccine is used in people who already have cancer. It’s not preventive like the flu shot. experimental cancer “vaccine” showed promising results in a small clinical trial of patients with lymphoma, according to a study published Monday in the journal Nature Medicine. Researchers at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital tested the treatment in 11 patients with lymphoma. Their results were successful enough to warrant another clinical trial in March on lymphoma...

  • Biologists' new peptide could fight many cancers

    MIT biologists have designed a new peptide that can disrupt a key protein that many types of cancers, including some forms of lymphoma, leukemia, and breast cancer, need to survive. The new peptide targets a protein called Mcl-1, which helps cancer cells avoid the cellular suicide that is usually induced by DNA damage. By blocking Mcl-1, the peptide can force cancer cells to undergo programmed cell death. "Some cancer cells are very dependent on Mcl-1, which is the last line of defense keeping the cell from dying. It's a very attractive target," says Amy Keating, an MIT professor of biology...

    A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported. Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on gruelling treatments that failed to stop it. Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments. With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric. The cancer, which has an...

    MELBOURNE, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- A tablet developed in Melbourne that "melts away" cancer cells has been approved for use in the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Tuesday that venetoclax was approved for prescription outside of human trials for patients with chronic lymphotic leukemia (CLL). Venetoclax, which overwhelms the BCL-2 protein that is vital to cancer cell survival, was developed in Melbourne in the 1980s after researchers at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI) discovered the importance of BCL-2. WEHI's head of clinical translation, Professor Andrew Roberts, said that 80...

    Our daughter-in-law just called from Tampa and shared with us that our grandson, Noah, who is exactly 3.5 years today may have lymphoma. They have tested him for Mono and other things and resent some blood for other tests, which they hope to have results tomorrow, but the doctor said it didn't look good. They suspect Lymphoma. They did an ultrasound to check on his glands and they are all swollen, some as big as 3 cm, which is over an inch wide. As an aside, our daughter-in-law is a 'documented immigrant' from Brazil...her whole family came about 15 years...

Berry will undergo further testing at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta to complete the diagnosis. "At this point in time, we don't have a definitive diagnosis," Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said at a news conference Monday afternoon. "But the leading consideration for what he has right now is lymphoma.

    Modified ecstasy could one day have a role to play in fighting some blood cancers, according to scientists. Ecstasy is known to kill some cancer cells, but scientists have increased its effectiveness 100-fold, they said in Investigational New Drugs journal. Their early study showed all leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma cells could be killed in a test tube, but any treatment would be a decade away. A charity said the findings were a "significant step forward". In 2006, a research team at the University of Birmingham showed that ecstasy and anti-depressants such as Prozac had the potential to stop cancers growing....
