Good News In The Press Today

The Associated Press is reporting some good news coming out of the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.  “New research shows a sharp escalation in the weapons race against cancer, with several high-tech approaches long dreamed of but not possible or successful until now,” the AP report states.  Some of the new tools include “smart drugs” that deliver powerful poisons direct…ly to cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone; a new tool that helps the immune system attack a broad range of cancer types; and treatments aimed at new genes and cancer pathways, plus better tests to predict which patients will benefit from them.  This is why the Roseann Gregory Cancer Foundation exists; to do whatever we can to help scientists, doctors, and researchers develop more successful treatments and to fund and find a cure for cancer.
