Southampton scientists in landmark cancer breakthrough

Daily Echo: Southampton scientists in landmark cancer breakthrough Southampton scientists in landmark cancer breakthrough

IT’S a landmark moment in cancer care that could save the lives of patients who previously had little chance of survival.

Doctors in Southampton have become the first in the country to treat liver cancer by isolating the organ from the rest of the body and bathing it in chemotherapy.

The pioneering technique means that doctors can blast the cancerous cells without fear of causing damage to the rest of the body, which has previously limited the effectiveness of treatment.

It is also believed that the breakthrough could be extended to treat a number of other cancers, including colon, breast and melanoma.

The revolutionary procedure, performed by Dr Brian Stedman, a consultant interventional radiologist at Southampton General Hospital, involves using two small balloons to divert blood past the liver for an hour while delivering drugs directly in to the organ.

Known as chemosaturation therapy or percutaneous hepatic perfusion (PHP), the technique allows doctors to administer much larger doses than patients would receive with standard chemotherapy as it does not enter the bloodstream and damage healthy parts of the body.

Once the drug has been delivered, blood from the liver is drained from the patient and processed through a filtration machine to reduce toxicity before being returned to the patient via the jugular vein.

Dr Stedman, who has used the method to treat two patients with liver cancer which has spread from the eye, called the development a “landmark moment” in cancer care.

He said: “To cut off an organ from the body for 60 minutes, soak it in a high dose of drug and then filter the blood almost completely clean before returning is truly groundbreaking.

“Previously, the outlook for patients specifically suffering from cancer which has spread to the liver has been poor because standard chemotherapies effect is limited by the unwanted damage the drug causes to the rest of the body.”

Results of a recent study in the US showed patients who received PHP survived five times longer before the disease – metastatic melanoma – progressed than those who had standard chemotherapy.

That technique sounds very pharmaceutically driven like most western medicine so whilst some poor sufferers & families may be pleased & I would hate to dampen anyone's parade, I struggle to get too excited with anything interlinked to the pharmaceutical industry.

A multi-billion pound industry which seems to prioritise financial profit ahead of life without the best track record on supporting technology which eradicates many pointless placebos, trojan horse chemicals & other costly drugs produced as a maintenance does for patients.

Why hasn't more research gone into expanding Rife's lifetime of pioneering work with highly effective mechanical, resonant frequency techniques which didn't damage tissue or have heavy reliance on costly drugs as pioneered & championed by Royal Raymond Rife in the last century?

I don't know the answers & I truly hope this technique helps which I am sure it will to an extent but I find it strange so many years of studying & so few results. My cynical instincts smell a rat & I don't know to the extent at which Rife's work was revered before being sabatoged but the long article certainly is an interesting & eye opening read...

Bringing new life to failed cancer drugs.

Originally published October 14, 2012

With nanotechnology, researchers in the lab -- which is part of the National Institutes of Health and run by federal contractor SAIC-Frederick -- are harnessing ways to reduce side effects and improve the efficacy of cancer drugs by giving scientists more control in targeting treatments, said Dr. Scott McNeil, lab director.

The gold nanoparticle acts as a tour guide, helping CytImmune's drug get to the tumor by allowing it to pass the liver and spleen undetected. Because tumors are characterized by leaky blood vessels, Tamarkin said, the drug can escape when it reaches the tumor. Once bound to the tumor, the TNF can go to work.

"What we're doing is attacking the tumor and the blood vessels that support the tumor. That eventually starves the tumor and the cancer cells," Tamarkin said.

"We are rescuing this drug with nanotechnology and realizing its full potential."

Gold nanoshells to be tested in lung cancer clinical trial

Nanoshell therapy to be tested in lung cancer clinical trial.

JADE BOYD – NOVEMBER 2, 2012

Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) and Nanospectra Biosciences have planned the first clinical trial for lung cancers of a new therapy that uses gold nanoshells, which were invented at Rice.

Nanospectra’s AuroLase Therapy uses a combination of lasers and nanoparticles to destroy cancer tumors with heat. Because the nanoparticles — balls of silica encased in a thin shell of gold — are absorbed by tumors and not healthy tissue, the technology can destroy tumors with minimal damage to healthy tissues.

Nanospectra said AuroLase technology is also being tested in ongoing human clinical trials for metastatic head and neck tumors and for prostate cancer.

AuroLase Therapy begins with an injection of nanoshell particles into the patient’s bloodstream. After 12-24 hours — enough time for the particles to accumulate inside the tumor — an infrared laser is used to heat the particles and destroy tumor cells.

Video: Gold Nanoparticle Prostate Cancer Treatment Found Safe.

from MU News Bureau PLUS 3 weeks ago.

Currently, large doses of chemotherapy are required when treating certain forms of cancer, resulting in toxic side effects. The chemicals enter the body and work to destroy or shrink the tumor, but also harm vital organs and drastically affect bodily functions. Now, scientists at the University of Missouri have proven that a new form of prostate cancer treatment that uses radioactive gold nanoparticles, and was developed at MU, is safe to use in dogs.

The nanobubbles are short-lived events that expand and burst, thus creating a small hole in the surface and allowing cancer drugs to be injected directly into the cell.

U.S. researchers are developing a promising new approach to the targeting of individual cancer cells. The technique uses light-harvesting nanoparticles to convert laser energy into “plasmonic nanobubbles,” enabling drugs to be injected directly into the cancer cells through small holes created in the surface.

RESEARCHERS CLAIM THAT THE DELIVERY OF CHEMOTHERAPY DRUGS IN THIS WAY IS UP TO 30 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE ON CANCER CELLS THAN TRADITIONAL DRUG TREATMENTS AND REQUIRES LESS THAN ONE-TENTH THE CLINICAL DOSE.

In order to get the nanobubbles inside the target cancer cells, clusters of gold nanoparticles are created within the cells by binding an antibody to individual nanoparticles. These antibodies adhere to the cancer cells before being absorbed to create tiny pockets of nanoparticles just below the cell surface. Then the laser pulse is applied to the plasmon to create a nanobubble.

Originally published October 14, 2012 With nanotechnology, researchers in the lab -- which is part of the National Institutes of Health and run by federal contractor SAIC-Frederick -- are harnessing ways to reduce side effects and improve the efficacy of cancer drugs by giving scientists more control in targeting treatments, said Dr. Scott McNeil, lab director. The gold nanoparticle acts as a tour guide, helping CytImmune's drug get to the tumor by allowing it to pass the liver and spleen undetected. Because tumors are characterized by leaky blood vessels, Tamarkin said, the drug can escape when it reaches the tumor. Once bound to the tumor, the TNF can go to work. "What we're doing is attacking the tumor and the blood vessels that support the tumor. That eventually starves the tumor and the cancer cells," Tamarkin said. "We are rescuing this drug with nanotechnology and realizing its full potential." - http://www.frederick newspost.com/section s/news/display.htm?S toryID=141966#.UKBnr OTZZBk - wishing our Southampton scientists all the best in their endeavours, as well as the US I believe chemosaturation therapy is being tested in Germany, Italy, Ireland and France.[/p][/quote]Gold nanoshells to be tested in lung cancer clinical trial - Nanoshell therapy to be tested in lung cancer clinical trial. JADE BOYD – NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) and Nanospectra Biosciences have planned the first clinical trial for lung cancers of a new therapy that uses gold nanoshells, which were invented at Rice. Nanospectra’s AuroLase Therapy uses a combination of lasers and nanoparticles to destroy cancer tumors with heat. Because the nanoparticles — balls of silica encased in a thin shell of gold — are absorbed by tumors and not healthy tissue, the technology can destroy tumors with minimal damage to healthy tissues. Nanospectra said AuroLase technology is also being tested in ongoing human clinical trials for metastatic head and neck tumors and for prostate cancer. AuroLase Therapy begins with an injection of nanoshell particles into the patient’s bloodstream. After 12-24 hours — enough time for the particles to accumulate inside the tumor — an infrared laser is used to heat the particles and destroy tumor cells. - http://news.rice.edu /2012/11/02/nanoshel l-therapy-to-be-test ed-in-lung-cancer-cl inical-trial/[/p][/quote]Video: Gold Nanoparticle Prostate Cancer Treatment Found Safe.. - Saintsincethe60s says.. very interesting if it really works. This just one of many different Prostate, Lung, Liver, Tumor trials using ( the only shared common denominator ) Gold Nanoparticles , again.. wishing our Southampton scientists all the best in their endeavours. - Video: Gold Nanoparticle Prostate Cancer Treatment Found Safe. from MU News Bureau PLUS 3 weeks ago. Currently, large doses of chemotherapy are required when treating certain forms of cancer, resulting in toxic side effects. The chemicals enter the body and work to destroy or shrink the tumor, but also harm vital organs and drastically affect bodily functions. Now, scientists at the University of Missouri have proven that a new form of prostate cancer treatment that uses radioactive gold nanoparticles, and was developed at MU, is safe to use in dogs. http://vimeo.com/514 53937[/p][/quote]Gold Nanoparticles 30x more effective on cancer cells.. less than one-tenth the clinical dose. - "NANOBUBBLES" ADVANCE USE OF CHEMOTHERAPY DELIVERY TO CANCER CELLS.
