Patient Jason Green who was involved with the on such trial, will join Dr Flinn to talks about his courage and determination that led him to get involved with the clinical trials. September is Leukemia & Lymphoma Awareness Month Leading Researcher and Patient Team Up During to Discuss the Importance of Clinical Trials for Finding New Cancer Treatments As the cost of healthcare continues to skyrocket out of control, more and more people are learning how to become pro-active when it comes to their health. We've all heard about the standard things we should be doing like eating more fruits/veggies and less processed foods, exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, and making sure we don't smoke or drink too much alcohol. But what about more alternative ideas--especially if you already have an illness that requires costly hospital and doctor visits--not to mention expensive drugs. One cutting edge option is finding out how to get involve during the "clinical trial" stage of an experimental drug. www.SarahCannonResearch.com This is something to try when you have a more serious disease like cancer.

Diagnosed six years earlier with chronic myelogenous leukemia, a cancer of the blood, Doug, now age 75, was told there was nothing the doctors could do for him. But he found new hope in an experimental treatment that signals the cancerous cells to stop duplicating -- effectively managing, though not curing, the disease. To learn more about CML and other blood disorders, visit ASH's patient information site www.bloodthevitalconnection.org. This clip was excerpted from the documentary film "Blood Detectives."

Chronic myeloid leukemia, or CML, was once considered a death sentence but new treatment options have turned CML into a chronic, yet manageable disease for most patients. Distributed by Tubemogul.
Tasigna® only treatment to surpass Gleevec in slowing disease progression for newly diagnosed CML patients data to be presented at 46th Annual ASCO meeting www.novartis.com www.asco.org Longer-term, 18-month, data from a pivotal study being presented at the 46th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO), shows that Tasigna® (nilotinib) 200 mg capsules continues to demonstrate superiority to the standard of care, Gleevec, as a first-line treatment in patients with Philadelphia chromosome-positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (Ph+ CML). CML is a disease in which the body produces cancerous white blood cells and is responsible for 10 to 15 percent of all adult cases of leukemia. In 2009 alone, there were more than 5000 newly diagnosed cases of CML in the United States. In 2001, Gleevec® (imatinib mesylate) tablets* revolutionized the treatment of Ph+ CML, becoming the gold standard of care by demonstrating the highest overall survival rate observed for people with this type of cancer. The longest-term comparative study of a second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor to date — Tasigna induced more than twice the major molecular response (MMR) rate compared with Gleevec and resulted in significantly lower rates of progression to advanced disease. Findings based on preliminary data, which will need to be confirmed by longer-term follow-up, also indicated that the drug positively impacted patient survival outcomes. Analysis of event-free survival ...
This videos is the second part to my first video about me finding out I have cancer.

A new drug with a similar but more potent mechanism of action as imatinib, commonly known as Gleevec, appears to be more effective for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia, according to research published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Here is some information about chronic myeloid leukemia: • Also known as CML, it is a slow progressing cancer found in the blood and bone marrow • It results in the overgrowth of immature, malfunctioning white blood cells • A major cause of CML is believed to be a genetic mutation that results in the development of an abnormal chromosome called BCR-ABL Researchers from the University of Turin treated nearly 850 patients suffering from CML with either a low dose or a high dose of a new drug known as nilotinib or with Gleevec. The patients were followed up for a year. At the end of the follow-up period, more than twice as many of the patients on nilotinib as on Gleevec experienced a major molecular response to their treatment, meaning the products of BCR-ABL were nearly undetectable in the blood. Similarly, more patients taking nilotinib than Gleevec had a complete cytogenic response, meaning cells containing the BCR-ABL mutation could not be detected in the blood or bone marrow. Those taking nilotinib were also less likely to experience a progression of their disease. We spoke with Dr. Giuseppe Saglio, one of the investigators of this study, who offered some further insight. Today's research suggests that a new, more powerful ...
Welcome to OncoFacts for February, 2010. For this issue of OncoFacts, we are going to focus on some of the most interesting data presented at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting. We will discuss some of the data presented at the ASH Annual Meeting in the areas of multiple myeloma, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Next month, we will look at data from the ASH Annual Meeting regarding chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and lymphomas.
MD Anderson researchers play crucial role in two New England Journal of Medicine studies showing newer drugs for chronic myeloid leukemia work faster and better than imatinib (Gleevec®).

Imatinib (Gleevec) has become a paradigm for targeted cancer therapies. The first part of this lecture will describe the clinical features and the molecular pathogenesis of the disease for which imatinib was developed, chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). This overview will trace the history of the identification of the target of imatinib, BCR-ABL. The preclinical development of the BCR-ABL kinase inhibitor, imatinib and highly successful clinical trials of this agent for patients with CML will be reviewed along with the most up-to-date follow-up on these studies. See more at www.ibioseminars.org
Imatinib (Gleevec) has become a paradigm for targeted cancer therapies. Although the majority of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) respond well to imatinib, a minority of patients have relapsed. This part of the lecture will cover what has been learned about mechanisms of relapse and how this information has been translated into new therapies for patients with imatinib resistance. Although imatinib is a relatively specific inhibitor of the ABL kinase, a couple of other kinases, KIT and the platelet derived growth factor receptor are also inhibited by imatinib. This use of this information to treat successfully treat other malignant diseases driven by these kinases will be reviewed. See more at www.ibioseminars.org
Imatinib has become the paradigm of targeted drug development. The lessons learned from the clinical trials of imatinib treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia will be reviewed in this section. This will include examples of where imatinib has or has not worked, analysis of target expression versus activation and a discussion of how the success of imatinib can be translated to other malignancies. The section concludes with what this means for research to control or cure cancer in the coming decades. See more at www.ibioseminars.org
Fundraising video that i created for my third time participating in the event. For the fourth year in a row, I have participated in the Scott Firefighter Stair Climb in Seattle, WA. A grueling climb up 1311 steps and 69 floors in full firefighter combat gear, but nothing compares to the battle a Leukemia patient and family must go through. The first year I set what I thought was a goal that was not in reach and surpassed it. Last year I again thought my goal was unreachable, yet through your support I went beyond once again. This year I have set my goal slightly higher to make myself go the extra mile in fundraising. Knowing that every dollar raised goes to help with research, patient services, and education of Leukemia patients makes my climb worthwhile. On a personal level the event and the cause is motivating for me. My mother Peggy was diagnosed with Chronic Mylogenous Leukemia that nearly took her life beginning in 1986. Her long battle with the disease, its many side effects, and its treatments slowly worked to weaken her body nearly taking her life several times. Her long battle with CML ended with a miracle when she received a bone marrow transplant in 1990. The unmatched, unrelated bone marrow transplant was the first of its kind at The Ohio State University and was before the James Cancer Institute came to fruition. Without fundraisers such as this stairclimb, money for research, patient support, education, and assistance, her life may not have been saved. Help ...
Our one return visit to a very difficult cache in Palo Duro Canyon, one year and 5 days later. While at the summit of the ascent, but half a mile north of the "Lost Canyon Cache" we placed our own "summit view" Geocache box. It's a hell of a hike to get here, but if you ever had the chance, TAKE IT! It's awsome, an area of the park untouched by most visitors, be one of the few to see it. for more information on our hobbies visit WWW.GEOCACHING.COM
