Yep…..it sure is!
There were some earlier posts made regarding cancer being a form of immune deficiency condition.
I did not mean to imply cancer is caused by an immune deficiency. What I meant to imply is there might be an “immune system” oriented approach to
deactivating cancer. There are currently 2 extremely new & extremely different technology approaches to this that I am involved with.
Also a few people asked about treatments announced in the media that seem to disappear.
It’s a horrifically complex area, from all points of view. Speaking from personal experience…..
Some technologies seem to show clinical promise that in the end can’t be proven.
Some technologies just don’t make financial sense in the end because they are so expensive for what they do, it is better to apply the money to
Some technologies don’t make it because the people involved are impossible to work with.
etc..., etc..., etc...
It’s a very, very difficult area from many, many different points of view.
If you are able to and have the time could you answer the following questions for me please for clarification sakes:
I shall try!
1. Is it not true that most media announced 'cancer breakthrough treatments' are just announcements of POTENTIAL treatments that have shown
early lab success but are yet to go through in most cases full animal and definitely human testing to obtain approval for widespread usage.
It’s highly variable. Many announcements are made from a point as you describe above. Many announcements are made much later in the technology
FYI…..all of the technologies I post about are available now & approved by major regulatory authorities, albeit they are extremely new.
2. Is there any evidence in your experience or from the accounts of colleagues that home cures have a place in cancer treatment and success
levels therein. This may be difficult for you to answer as most patients who are at a physicians will generally take their advice. Potentially you
could anecdote those that have tried homecures and then had to seek medical assistance for their condition subsequently.
I truly think it is extremely dangerous for people to spurn proper medical advice & treatment for “home cures”.
3. You talk in terms of nanoknife being a technology that is fda approved is the approval for treatment of specific cancer conditions or is it
a carte blanche approval to treat all and any as a physician may se fit?
The NanoKnife is FDA approved for ”soft tissue general”
applications, excluding the brain & the heart. Therefore it can be used as the
treating interventionalist deems appropriate, within the context of what is authorised by the relevant hospital or clinic management team & ethics
4. Further to my question above can you clarify why you say nanoknife is being focussed on pancreatic cancers. By whom and to what end? As part
of ongoing clinical trials or merely through your contacts attentions.
Pancreatic cancer is being focused upon because there is no other technology that can handle this extremely serious condition.
It also appears not to be a technically difficult application for skilled interventionalists.
5. The new treatment you have been shown but cannot discuss has it been through clinical trials is it now/imminently fda approved? If not how
long to market and if approved again how long to market and will it be considered an expensive cancer treatment? Could you go so far as to say that
the treatment would be surgical in nature or an ingested medicine? (fully understand if you can answer none of these points specifically having been
given a private heads up on the treatment)
The “new” technology I mentioned may be able to be applied in several different ways. It might also be able to be used in a manner that enables
some very significant advances in medical imaging as pertains to diagnosing areas of cancer in the body. In fact, it might even be able to facilitate
the imaging of pre-cancerous cells.
I do not have a time-line in mind for general availability of this new technology.
Thanks in advance for your time and your interesting posts to this thread.
You are very, very welcome!
I’m very pleased you are finding my info of interest.
