Can a Breathalyzer Sample Detect Lung Cancer?

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

A new study presented recently at the American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago concluded that anew brethalyzer using a NaNose nanotech chip  may accurately detect lung cancer and identify the stage of progression. .The breathanalyzer is based upon the knowledge that lung cancer tumors produce chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOC) that easily evapotate into air and produce a discernible scent.  The study included 358 patients who were either diagnosed with or at risk for lung cancer. The device accurately distinguished healthy people from  those with early stage lung cancer 85 percent of the time, and healthy people from those with advanced stage lung cancer 82 percent of the time. The test also accurately distinguished those with early from late stage lung cancer 79 percent of the time. The researchers hope the test will allow lung cancer patients to be diagnosed with a non-invasive procedure and a Boston Based company , Alpha Szenszor, has liscenbced the technology and plans to introduce it to the market within the next few years.

Longest Lung Cancer Survivor Used Vitamin B17 (laetrile) and Other Natural Interventions

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

chelvie4b

Below you will find the video presentation  from the 41st annual convention of the Cancer Control Society a couple weeks ago in which I discuss the natural interventions used when diagnosed with lung cancer 39 years ago. These included such interventions as laetrile, pancreatic enzymes, therapeutic doses of vitamin and minerals, herbs, a vegan type diet, prayer, meditation, affirmations, visualization, serving others, and other holistic interventions. I also discussed the ways I have remain cancer free and healthy over the past 37 years since recovery from cancer, and the value of a holistic approach.

Enjoy.

Can Cancer Virulence Be Predicted”

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Research reported in Science Transitional Medicine concluded that identifying the genes that are abnormally activated in a cancer makes it possible to determine its virulence with great accuracy. Although all cells in the body have the same genes. specialization leads to activation of some and the repression of others. In a cell with cancer the mechanism that allow a cell to activate or repress genes are damaged and there is a sort of identity crisis.  Focusing on genes that are awakened in tumors the researchers found that in almost all cancers, tens of specific genes in the germ line are abhorrently activated. To explore the implications of these aberrant activations the researchers focused on lung cancer. and discovered 26 genes whose activation is associated with particularly aggressive cancers and when these genes are expressed the cancer is very virulent. This allows those cancers that have a high risk of recurrence and a fatal prognosis at diagnosis. Further research should be done on other cancer sites.

Does a History of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer Lead to An Increased Risk of Other Primary Cancers?

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

logo1267406_mdA prospective study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital reported in PLOS Medicine reported on an association between risk of second primary cancer and history of non-melanoma skin cancer in white men and women. They found that people with a history of non-melanoma skin cancer had a modest increase risk of getting cancer in the future, specifically breast and lung cancer in women, and melanoma in both men and women,

Data was analyzed from two cohort studies in the United States and followed over 46,000 men from June, 1986 to June 2008, and over 107,000 women from June, 1984 to June 2008. Over the period there were over 36,000 new cases of non-melanoma skin cancer, and over 29,000 new cases of other primary cancers. A history of non-melanoma skin cancer was significantly associated with a 15% higher risk of other primary cancers in men, and a 26% higher risk of other primary cancers in women.  When melanoma was excluded from the analysis, the rates change=d slightly, with a history if non-melanoma skin cancer associated with 11% higher rates of primary cancer in men, and a 20% higher rate of other primary cancers in women. Using statistical models to correct for multiple comparisons,  looking at individual cancer sites, they found that a history of non-melanoma skin cancer was significantly linked with an increase risk of breast cancer and lung cancer for women, and an increase risk of melanoma ion both men and women. However, because the study was observational the researchers advised caution about the results.

Can a Common Virus be Linked to Lung Cancer?

Friday, April 19th, 2013

logo1267406_md

 

Researchers p[resenting at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting this month concluded that a common virus known to cause cervical and head and neck cancers may also cause some cases of lung cancer. After examining tissue samples from lung cancer patients researchers found that  nearly 6% seemed to have been driven by a strain of human papilloma virus (HPV)  Researchers examined 36 tissue samples from people diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer who had never smoked.  Non-smokers were chosen because because smoking is a major cause of lung cancer but the causes in non-smokers is less well understood. They found that 4 of the 36 samples had signs of infection from two strains of HPV that were known to cause cancer–16 and 18. When looking more closely at the two samples infected by HPV they found that the virus had integrated into the tumor’s DNA–suggesting more strongly that the infection caused the tumor. Further research is needed to confirm the results seen in this sample.

Does Soy Intake Influence Lung Cancer Survival?

Friday, April 5th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published online in the Journal of Clinical Oncology concluded that Chinese women who consumed more soy before being diagnosed with lung cancer lived longer compared with those who consumed less soy. The researchers said “To our knowledge, this is the first study to suggest an association between high soy consumption before lung cancer diagnosis and better overall survival.” “Although the findings are very promising, it’s too early to give any dietary recommendations for the general public on the basis of this single study.”

The cancer incidence of 74,941 women in the Shanghai Women’;s Health Study was tracked and information about usual dietary intake of soy foods (soy milk, tofu, fresh and dry soybeans, soy sprouts, and other soy products) was collected in person at study enrollment and two years later. Using the Chinese Food Composition Table the soy food and isoflavones content of various food products was calculated.  Four hundred forty four women were diagnosed with lung cancer during the study period and the median time between the first dietary assessment and cancer diagnosis was 5.8 years. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to soy food intake prior to lung cancer diagnosis for analysis. The highest and lowest leveks were equivalent to approximately 4 ounces or more and 2 ounces or less of tofu daily. Those with the highest soy food intake had markedly better overall survival compared with those with the lowest intake–60% of patients in the highest intake group and 50% in the lowest intake group were alive at twelve months after diagnosis.

The risk of death decreased with increasing soy intake until the intake reached a level equivalent to 4 ounces of tofu daily. No additional survival benefits were found by a higher intake. Factors such as a higher soy food intake, lower prevalence of cigarette smoking, and postmenopausal hormone replacement in this population may influence the results when the methodology is applied to a different population. Further research is planned.
