How to treat Recurrent Cancer
How to treat Recurrent Cancer Current treatment of recurrent cancer is not optimal since medicine ignores that organism resists the tumor. Host resistance may be weak yet it is significant. Obviously if host resistance is high patient requires less drugs and vice versa. Here is an example of therapy which considers host resistance. A woman leaving mammography with a localized breast tumor is treated and tumor is removed. In most women treatment will leave behind tumor remnants too small to be detected. They will grow and later on present as recurrent tumors. The question is how to treat them optimally? I maintain that breast cancer is driven by a virus to which it responds with a tumor. During an aggressive virus infection tumor grows faster and vice versa. I regard tumor as biomarker of two processes: 1. Severity of virus infection 2. Host resistance. Once cancer recurs it is essentially incurable, and the only therapeutic objective is dormancy induction. Cancer dormancy has two manifestations: 1. Tumor stops growing or grows extremely slowly. 2. Tumor is invisible Dormancy induction requires small drug doses. You start with a small dose. Rise it gradually until dormancy is achieved. The initial small dose depends on the time of tumor recurrence. The later tumor recurs the smaller dose is needed

Ovarian Cancer: Progression and Treatment Options
Dr. Matt McDonald discusses the progression of ovarian cancer and how it is treated. Matt McDonald, MD: Unfortunately in this day and age, the majority of ovarian cancers present at the late stage. Statistically 80% of all ovarian cancers present at an advanced stage either stage 3 or 4. Treatment options for those patients usually requires a combination of a surgery and chemotherapy. New advances in ovarian cancer at this point in time really rely upon what we call adjuvant treatment for ovary cancer and what I mean by that is surgery for ovarian cancer as for several, several decades, its main goal is to what we call surgically remove the cancer and what that means is remove all of the macroscopic or all of the disease that we can see or touch at the time of surgery. Many times we can't remove every single piece of cancer that we can see or feel, but the goal is to leave as little a nodule of cancer behind following surgery and what we strive to do is leave any cancer behind that will be smaller than 1 cm that's the goal and from a surgical standpoint that may require removal of parts of the intestinal tract or urinary tract, etc. The surgery's goal is to remove the large pieces of cancer and leave the smallest amount of residual tumor behind as we can and that's what chemotherapy is for. Chemotherapy works better on small implants of cancer than it does on large implants of cancer. For many patients, we are employing something called intraperitoneal chemotherapy which is when a patient receiving chemotherapy receives a combination of some intravenous chemotherapy which is a standard traditional approach and some patients will receive a combination where they also receive intraperitoneal chemotherapy or a lot of patients consider this a belly wash chemotherapy where there is a port implanted in the abdomen where we infuse chemotherapy directly into the abdominal cavity and in patient that can tolerate and be administered intraperitoneal chemotherapy, it has been shown that these patients actually do better and have a longer survival rate. And so on this day and age that's what most of us strive to do is to have an excellent surgical result followed by a combination intravenous and intraperitoneal chemotherapy. The challenge to the medical environment is to catch ovarian cancer at an earlier stage and there are some new blood tests that are doing a better job with that than we did ten years ago. There are some new screening algorithms or triage algorithms for an ovarian mass that help patients get to a trained professional such as GYN oncologist for their initial operation which in this time still is the most important aspect of a woman's care with ovarian cancer is that her initial diagnosis and initial management is performed by a GYN oncologist. Most notably there are some blood tests. One's called the OVA 1, which is a blood test that screens for five different analytes in a woman's blood to help us dictate whether or not an ovarian mass is cancer or not and that test does do a better job than some of the other more traditional approaches that we use. Again another challenge to women that have been found to have an ovarian mass is to definitely seek out the right physician. The good news is a vast majority of an ovarian mass that is seen on CT scan or ultrasound is benign. It is not a cancer, the vast majority of a time. The challenge for a medical team is to weed out who are those cancers and who is not and certainly seek second opinions, seek out GYN oncologists, if you have an ovarian mass for a second opinion or a surgical consultation, because it's important that you get the best preoperative evaluation in the event that it is a cancer that you are taking care of by the right medical professional.

New Treatments for Ovarian Cancer
It’s one of the most common cancer killers for women. Doctors say while there’s no way to screen for ovarian cancer there are ways to treat it early. Dr. Fadi Abu Shahin, a gynecologic oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Health, says each year 23,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. “The problem with ovarian cancer is a majority of women are diagnosed with advanced stage so the mortality rate of ovarian cancer is much higher.” Doctors say the symptoms are few and many go unnoticed, like bloating, change in appetite, or indigestion. There’s no way to screen for ovarian cancer, but if a patient is predisposed to the cancer there are new early treatments. “One of the new, recent, exciting things that we have in the treatments of ovarian cancer is targeted therapies. So women that we know that carry the mutation are now candidates for targeted therapy for ovarian cancer,” said Dr. Abu Shahin. Targeted therapy focuses on treating the specific mutations in the cells. “This is an exciting step beyond the chemotherapy, which targets all the cells in our body, cancer and normal cells,” said Dr. Abu Shahin. Doctors say targeted therapy is an option for women who are predisposed to ovarian cancer. “Women who have a strong family history of ovarian and breast cancer should be evaluated to find out if they carry genes that predispose to that cancer,” said Dr. Abu Shahin. If a patient is diagnosed with ovarian cancer other treatments are chemotherapy and surgery.

Metastatic Ovarian Cancer
Sylvia De Vries was diagnosed with Stage III-C Ovarian Cancer in October 2003. She had major surgery to remove her cancer-infected reproductive organs and her appendix, followed by 6 rounds of Carboplatin Taxol chemotherapy. She went into remission until December 2009, and commenced Carboplatin Taxol chemotherapy once again for her metastases. After 3 failed treatments, she was put on 6 rounds of Calyx, then Gemzar, which ended up attacking her bone marrow, for which she had a hard time. On August 2, 2010, her Canadian oncologist deemed her terminal and gave her approximately 2 months to live, but she and her husband were not prepared to accept that. Her husband began researching for other alternative cures and was impressed by the Issels Treatment. They also talked to another woman from Windsor, Ontario, who had experienced the treatment. In October 14, 2010 Sylvia came to the Issels Treatment Center in a very frail state, in a wheelchair, and unable to walk. In her own words: "In less than 3 weeks I was able to walk 6 blocks to the ocean from here...The doctors are very caring, they're very aggressive with their treatment, they're very hands-on. You're not a number." Her tumor marker Ca-125 was 141 when she started the Issels Treatment, and in less than 3 weeks it dropped down to 77.9. She feels stronger, more vibrant, and feel alive again. "I know I'm going to be healed. This is the place to be."

I grew up in Boston all my life, and I am a huge Red Sox fan and Patriots fan. In January of 2012, I began nursing school in Nashville, Tennessee. Text: Something didn’t feel right. Carolyn: I began experiencing symptoms of what I thought were a urinary tract infection and was told I needed to go for a CT scan. I came back and received a call from my primary telling me that neither she nor the radiologist were really… They were unsure of what they were looking at. There were masses throughout my abdomen. A couple of days later, after a biopsy, I was told that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. I met my team from Dana-Farber who ultimately performed the surgery, and then I went on to have six rounds of chemotherapy. I spent the next year or so really recovering from chemotherapy and really just tried to put my life back together and go on living normally. I was getting ready to start school in September 2014 when I started experiencing symptoms that just didn’t feel right. I found there was, in fact, a mass on my colon. It was really discouraging to find out that my cancer was back, but I was also really confident in the care that I was receiving. My doctors had always been up front with me that a recurrence was a possibility. Text: Carolyn was offered a clinical trial for women with recurrent ovarian cancer. Carolyn: I was able to take part in using this ACE-inhibitor, which is traditionally for breast cancer patients, but they had found a link between this working for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. So, I am benefitting from the very research that Dana-Farber does here. Dana-Farber is really like a second home to me. It’s weird to say that I look forward to coming here, but I really do. I can’t say enough about the doctors and the nurses that have cared for me. They’re just wonderful people, and I consider them sort of family now. When I was in nursing school, I used to think I knew what kind of nurse I wanted to be, and after being here at Dana-Farber and seeing the care that I’ve received, I really know what a good nurse is now. My hope is to become an oncology nurse. I would really like to work in the field that I’ve been so immersed in for the last three years.
Finding Signs of Ovarian Cancer
From http://www.beetmedicine.tv/2009/04/ovarian-cancer-is-not-silent-cancer-it-whispers.html: Ovarian cancer is rare and usually discovered at a late stage. The signs are symptoms are subtle and not dissimilar from other abdominal or pelvic complaints. The key is that they are persistent. Dr. Poynor describes this not as silent cancer but, a cancer which whispers. Workup includes a pelvic exam, a transvaginal ultrasound and possibly a CAT scan. CA 125 is a blood test which is useful in following women who have been treated for an ovarian cancer to monitor a recurrence. It is not sensitive enough to detect early ovarian cancer nor specific enough because it may be elevated in benign conditions. But, it can be used until better markers become available.

The Ultimate Guide to Ovarian Cancer by Dr. Benedict Benigno
Twenty-five thousand American women will get ovarian cancer this year. No screening test exists for this disease, and the symptoms are often vague and mistaken for other illnesses. This cancer is almost always diagnosed in advanced stages, thus requiring extensive surgery and heavy doses of chemotherapy. The recurrence rate is close to 80%, which means most ovarian cancer patients will need additional chemotherapy and sometimes more surgery. In this breakthrough book, Dr. Benedict B. Benigno offers a compassionate, easy-to-understand in-depth look into standard and out-of-the-box ovarian cancer treatments and a thorough examination of the basic science research that will eventually cause a revolution in the way all cancers will be treated. His own patient experiences are interwoven with the stories of survivors who beat the odds. The evolution of a simple, new diagnostic test is described in detail-a test which may prove to be 100% accurate and which may offer women a way to be screened for ovarian cancer when it is at its earliest stage. The cure rate for a stage one ovarian cancer is over 90%! In this book you will: • Learn what symptoms to look for to help diagnose ovarian cancer earlier. • Get clear facts about current modalities of diagnosis and treatment. • Gain an insight from a board certified gynecologic oncologist into new forms of therapy not yet standard of care for ovarian cancer. • Discover how basic science is the key to new ovarian cancer therapy and why molecular biologists will soon replace oncologists. • Find out how advances in genetic research will eradicate many current forms of cancer treatment. The Ultimate Guide to Ovarian Cancer is the one book you want to read if your life has been even remotely touched by ovarian cancer.

Dynamics of Cancer Recurrence
Dynamics of Cancer Recurrence In 1999 Karrison and co workers published a landmark study "Dormancy of Mammary Carcinoma After Mastectomy " They describe recurrent cancer in 1547 women who underwent radical mastectomy. I discus Karrison’s paper together with a publication of the early breast cancer trialist group (EBCTCG} in cancer recurrence. The main conclusion is that breast cancer treatment is associated with an increased hazard rate. It is particularly dangerous to young women.
