Genomic Testing in Breast Cancer: What You Must Know
 
14:37
We teach you about genomic testing and how these sophisticated tests can guide you to personalized therapies for your breast cancer. THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BreastCancerSchoolForPatients/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: *Do I qualify for an Oncotype DX genomic test? *If so, will you order genomic testing for me? *Would you order a genomic test before I see a medical oncologist? *Are there any other genomic tests that apply to me? *What is a genomic assay? These sophisticated tests are performed on a small sample of cancer tissue in appropriate patients with early stage breast cancer. Genomic tests are usually ordered after surgery when the pathology report is finalized. It measures unique aspects of the tumor to determine if a patient will benefit from chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. Such “genomic assays” developed over the last decade are a dramatic advance in breast cancer care. The Oncotype DX assay by Genomic Health Inc. is the most utilized genomic assay of those available in the United States. Who should consider a genomic test? Patients who have small “Estrogen receptor positive” (ER+) and “HER2 receptor negative” (HER2-) tumors and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX assay. The purpose of this test is to better identify people who do and do not benefit from chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist will examine multiple factors to help determine if you will benefit from chemotherapy. The NCCN Guidelines, listed in the website links below, outline in much greater detail recommendations for the use of genomic tests. An Oncotype DX test can be instrumental in this decision for many patients. You may qualify for a Genomic Assay if… You have early stage cancer (Stage I or II) Your tumor is Estrogen receptor positive (ER+) Your tumor is Her2 receptor negative (HER2-) No cancer was found in your lymph nodes You are willing to consider having chemotherapy You are healthy enough to undergo chemotherapy How is chemotherapy tailored to patients? Genomic breast cancer tests are a leap forward in our ability to “look inside” breast cancer cells. Sophisticated breast cancer care is based upon the principle of providing maximal benefit from the least toxic therapy. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients deserve the best information available to decide whether they need chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy?“ (here) to understand the general concepts. Genomics is a promising and rapidly developing field. OTHER GENOMIC TESTS: Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Test This assay of DCIS or “precancerous” breast cells may help identify some women who may not benefit from radiation therapy after a lumpectomy. Genomic Health Inc. is a leading personalized medicine company. More information is about this test is located (here). MammaPrint This genomic test is used for Stage I and II breast cancers to determine prognosis and survival. This test is now included in national guidelines for some with hormone sensitive breast cancers that are found to have a small amount of cancer in a few lymph nodes. It is also a genomic test for some without “node positive” breast cancer. Agendia is a leader in personalized and molecular cancer diagnostics. More information about MammaPrint is located (here). Endopredict EndoPredict is a 2nd generation genomic breast cancer recurrence test to assess for 10-year risk of cancer recurrence. This test also accounts for tumor size in helping determine if chemotherapy may be needed in early stage, favorable breast cancers. Myriad Genetics is global leader in genetic testing and personalized medicine. More information about Endopredict is located (here). Breast Cancer Index (BCI) This test is designed for women with favorable, early stage breast cancer who have been on hormonal therapy for 4 to 5 years. It can help determine if someone will benefit (or can avoid) five additional years of hormonal therapy, such as tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor. This test is not yet approved by the FDA. Medicare and some insurance companies may cover the cost. Biotheranostics is a molecular diagnostics company. More information about BCI is located (here). Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions. For appropriate patients, these tests should be considered only one piece of the many “pieces of the puzzle” in deciding treatment decisions about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.

Breast Cancer: A Man's Survival Story
 
03:08
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time to educate everyone about detection and treatment, encourage fundraising, and celebrate survivors. According to the Susan G. Komen foundation, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States. A Hixson native, Clarence Willingham, wants to spread the message that breast cancer is a people's disease not a female's disease. He is a strong man and a breast cancer survivor sharing his story to encourage other men to go pink. "I felt a lump on my breast and I kind of figured it was a sist," said Willingham. Then that lump got a little bigger and a little bigger. It was March of 2012 and Clarence Willingham was a relatively healthy, working 57-year-old. "I was thinking it was something else, hoping it wasn't breast cancer, but in the back of my mind I was thinking that but I was hoping it wasn't," said Willingham. The urgency about that lump then sky-rocketed. "The next morning it started to bleed profusely," said Willingham. One trip to the emergency room at Memorial hospital in Hixson and Willingham's life changed forever. "The doctor looked at it and the first thing she said was you have breast cancer. Everyone was crying you know and thinking the worst things," said Willingham. Doctors diagnosed Willingham with stage 4 breast cancer. According to the Susan G. Komen foundation this is the poorest prognosis of breast cancer. "I went through the whole 9 yards, chemotherapy, went through radiation..." said Willingham. Through it all, he focused on hope and that he can be beat cancer. "My wife, the love of my life, she kept me going. We gonna fight it

Since 1991, the NBCF has helped over ten thousand women in all 50 states and around the world. “SABRE Red has been steadfast in their support of NBCF’s mission to help women now,” says NBCF Founder and CEO Janelle Hail. “Since 2008, they’ve raised $1 million and helped provide over ten thousand mammograms and early detection services for those in need. We look forward to this year’s campaign because we know their impact will extend to women in all 50 states.” SABRE manufactures a line of pink products, four different pepper sprays and a personal alarm to generate funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. For each pink product sold, SABRE is able to make a donation. This isn’t just an initiative the company takes on during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, it’s a year-round fundraising effort that supports cornerstones of both organizations: empowering women to protect themselves by giving them the necessary tools and education. “We are so thankful for the huge support these products have received,” says Nance. “Giving back to the community has always been a strong goal of the company, and we’re thrilled that the success of these products is allowing us to make a real difference.” To learn more about SABRE’s pink products and the company’s partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, visit http://www.sabrered.com/nbcf/ or follow SABRE on https://www.facebook.com/sabreredpepperspray, https://twitter.com/sabrered and http://instagram.com/SabreSafety.

Body Position In Breast Cancer Therapy Matters
 
01:47
Women who get radiation therapy on stomachs rather than backs, show benefits (COLUMBUS, Ohio) – Doctors are making radiation therapy more effective for breast cancer patients simply by modifying the table a woman lays on, and by turning her onto her stomach during treatment. Traditionally, women who undergo radiation therapy lie on their backs, and while that approach can be very effective, there’s a slight chance of radiation damage to healthy heart and lung tissue. It’s also been associated with long-term problems in the shape of the affected breast. “By turning a woman over onto her stomach we can treat the breast underneath the board and virtually eliminate those concerns,” said Dr. Julia White of The Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. “We’ve developed a modified treatment board that minimizes the exposure of heart and lung tissue and is leading to better outcomes overall,” she said.

I'm Dr. Frita. I'm going to talk to you today about breast cancer signs, symptoms and treatment. I do not promote violence, but today I'm going to teach you how to fight. Whom do I want you to fight, you ask? Breast cancer, because she's nasty, and I'm sick of her. She kills over 40,000 women in the United States each year. She's the second leading cause of cancer death among women. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. If you think you're safe because no one in your entire family has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer, think again, because 85% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history. Oh, she's sneaky. Breast cancer deserves to be beaten. So, join me, peaceful people. Let's fight.

3 Signs You'll Get Breast Cancer - Dr. Russell Blaylock
 
45:21
The World Health Organization has just issued a warning that cancer cases will rise by 70% during the coming years. Over 2.8 million American women currently suffer from breast cancer. In the United States, breast cancer is the most common type of dangerous cancer found in women — and it kills more women than any form of cancer except lung cancer. During the 1970s, about nine out of every 100 women were expected to get breast cancer. Today, that percentage has increased by 45%. Russell Blaylock, M.D., a leading American holistic medical doctor, is so concerned by this explosion of breast cancer, he has created a free informational video presentation revealing the three signs you could develop breast cancer. In Dr. Blaylock’s special video report, you’ll be shocked to see how the cancer treatment industry has artificially “improved” cure rates for breast cancer by including in their statistics one type of cancer that rarely develops into a true cancer — a practice which leads to excessive, unnecessary, and expensive cancer treatment. When you view this video, you’ll discover: Three things you must avoid if you want to prevent the cell damage that leads to cancer . . . Why having mammograms actually increases your risk for breast cancer . . . This one food that makes cancer spread like wildfire, yet is often recommended by oncologists and cancer centers . . . The common link between cancer and other conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, obesity, and many other degenerative diseases . . . What you’re probably doing on a daily basis that could lead not only to breast cancer, but also to liver or kidney disease and even early death . . . Dr. Blaylock notes that most people’s bodies already contain precancerous cells, just waiting for the right conditions to activate them. Since avoiding these cancer-cell triggers is your best defense against cancer, this video reveals his top natural strategies to protect yourself from breast cancer activation.

Internationally renowned cancer expert Dr. Julia White is the new director of breast radiation oncology at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center -- Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC--James). "I'm very excited that Julia is now leading our breast radiation oncology program Ohio State," says Dr. Michael Caligiuri, director of Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center and CEO of the James Cancer Hospital. "She is widely regarded as one of the leading breast radiation oncologists in the world. We are delighted to have such an esteemed cancer leader join the OSU faculty to help us reach our goal of a cancer-free world." White, who also has been named vice-chair of the department of radiation oncology, serves as chair of the national Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) Breast Cancer Group. "As a breast cancer physician and radiation oncologist, my goal is to deliver radiation that is personalized to the specific cancer and the individual woman by using advanced radiation technology that can more precisely treat breast tumors -- and as a result -- improve the overall survival for women with breast cancer," says White, who also is a member of the National Cancer Institute's Breast Cancer Steering Committee. "We now know that breast cancer is not one disease, but that there are many different types of breast cancer and each woman has her own individual needs." In addition, she has served as principal investigator on a number of important clinical studies that have helped establish the current standard of care in the treatment of breast cancer patients. "Julia is considered the international authority in breast cancer as it pertains to radiation oncology," adds Dr. Arnab Chakravarti, chair and professor, department of radiation oncology and co-director, brain tumor program at OSUCCC -- James. "Her clinical research has helped define the field of breast radiation oncology. She will also have an important role in expanding the clinical trials portfolio in breast cancer at the Ohio State." White will see patients primarily at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center, 1145 Olentangy River Rd. The center features a new radiation oncology wing that offers added convenience for patients by providing on-site access to radiation treatments in the same location where they can also receive digital mammography, diagnostic imaging and other breast health services. "The clinical trials I oversee nationally are available at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center and aim to answer how to use the newest radiation technology to most effectively cure breast cancer patients," says White. "My goal is to offer the most up-to-date breast cancer treatment to patients I care for today, and to design clinical trials to cure even more patients in the next generation." White is the co-principal investigator on two major international trials (NSABP B-39/ RTOG 0413 and RTOG 1005) studying the best radiation approach in more than 6,000 women who have undergone a lumpectomy. She holds memberships in almost a dozen professional and honorary societies, including American College of Radiology, American Society of Clinical Oncology and American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, while also serving on several editorial boards including Journal of Clinical Oncology and International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics. White earned her bachelor's degree in biology at Rosemont College in Rosemont, Penn., and her medical degree from Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine. Prior to joining Ohio State, White was a professor in the department of radiation oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. She also served as department chair and medical director for the department of radiation oncology at Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls, Wis. The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center -- Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute strives to create a cancer-free world by integrating scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care, a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. Ohio State is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and one of only seven centers funded by the NCI to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials. The NCI recently rated Ohio State's cancer program as "exceptional," the highest rating given by NCI survey teams.

Right-Wing Campaign Leads Breast Cancer Charity Komen to Drop Planned Parenthood Funding
 
19:43
democracynow.org - The nation's leading breast cancer charity is under intense scrutiny for its decision to cut-off funding for breast cancer screening programs run by Planned Parenthood. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure has confirmed it is withdrawing support for 19 of Planned Parenthood's 83 affiliates, citing a new policy barring funding for any groups under investigation by local, state or federal authorities. Planned Parenthood's finances are currently the subject of a probe led by anti-abortion Republican Rep. Cliff Stearns of Florida. "If you look at all the government reports which have already been done on Planned Parenthood, they're completely cleared of any of the charges that Cliff Stearns claims he's looking for. So, this is a witch hunt," says Jodi Jacobson, is the editor-in-chief of RH Reality Check, who recently wrote the article, "The Cancerous Politics and Ideology of the Susan G. Komen Foundation." We also speak with Patrick Hurd, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia and a recipient of a 2010 grant from Komen, and his wife, Betsi Hurd, who has participated in several Komen fundraising events and is currently battling breast cancer. "This isn't about fund raising," says Patrick Hurd. "This is about making sure that we provide access to women, that we continue to provide education to women, that we continue to serve the women in communities where Planned Parenthoods are located."

These initiatives are implemented through Sisters' affiliate chapters and are generously underwritten through federal funding, corporate partnerships and private contributions. Sisters' national branding campaign, "STOP THE SILENCE®," speaks directly to the nations, African American communities, long-standing history of not discussing cancer and other life-threatening health concerns. The national slogan has been used in Billboard and bumper sticker campaigns. This level of keen understanding of the African-American community mindset continues to allow the organization to effectively educate and heighten breast health awareness and survivorship in the African American community.

10/12/16 - Relationships Between Deities; National Breast Cancer Foundation; 156
 
14:11
This week we discuss the relationship of Deities with each other, as compared to human relationships. The charity of the week is National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. From their website: "The Mission Of NBCF NBCF’s mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival. However, with increased healthcare costs and a rapidly increasing percentage of uninsured women, many simply cannot afford the cost of screening tests. These women are at a significantly higher risk of dying from breast cancer if later diagnosed. That’s why NBCF provides free mammograms to women in all 50 states through our network of hospitals. We are now joining hands with people around the world to provide breast cancer education." http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/

The Future of Cancer Screening: Public Health Approaches
 
01:01:42
Cancer is the second-leading cause of death among Americans and takes a toll on communities across the United States. One of the effective ways to reduce our nation's burden from cancer is to ensure that high quality screening services are available and accessible to all Americans. Screening for cervical, colorectal, and breast cancers is supported by sound scientific evidence, and helps find these diseases early when they are easiest to treat. This session of Grand Rounds explored new ways that public health can increase the rate of evidence-based cancer screening, and decrease disparities in screening rates. Viewers learned about the effectiveness of screening, successful organized cancer screening programs in the United States and abroad, and opportunities with the Affordable Care Act. The session concluded with future directions for CDC and the nation's public health system to improve cancer screening. Comments on this video are allowed in accordance with our comment policy: http://www.cdc.gov/SocialMedia/Tools/CommentPolicy.html This video can also be viewed at http://www.cdc.gov/about/grand-rounds/archives/2013/july2013.htm

And I was scared, and I didn't know where to turn or what to do next. I went to the Weill Cornell Breast Center first and foremost because of a phone call. We had heard of Dr. Anne Moore through a bunch of people, and my husband emailed her, and Anne Moore called. She reassured us. She said, "Don't worry. I've got you," and I knew I was going to be okay. At the Weill Cornell Breast Center, we realized as that patient arrives that every patient is different and every patient is unique. They may all have the diagnosis of breast cancer, but each breast cancer is different, and each patient is different. And we recognize that right from the beginning and work to make the most of that situation. Almost every patient we see at the breast center has a customized program. We are more and more using precision medicine to better characterize the individual tumors. Every tumor that walks through our door, with the patient of course, is genotyped. So that means that we really get down to the nuts and bolts of the tumor, and we really want to understand what caused this tumor to evolve. And that helps us make treatment changes based on the specifics of each woman's breast cancer. We're moving away from the one-size-fits-all therapy to an individualized approach to treatment. We've been, in breast cancer, way ahead of the game as far as personalized medicine. All of our physicians are actively involved in research. We are designing some of the studies that are being given nationwide. There's still a lot of patients out there who have their cancer come back, who are living with Stage 4 breast cancer. And the only way that we are really going to reduce relapse, increase cure is to do clinical trials. If you can be in a clinical trial and get standard of care plus, you may be getting drugs that are not gonna be available to the general population for maybe 10 years. Clinical trials are no longer a last resort. We have clinical trials for every stage of breast cancer.

Blue Moon Hemp : Breast Cancer Awareness Month
 
00:49
In the United States, one out of eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life with over 40,000 lives taken each year by the disease. This puts breast cancer as the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in the United States, and the number one most common cancer affecting women worldwide. With such startling statistics, one cannot help but feel a sense of urgency to do something about this massive problem that plagues women and men all over the globe. The over three million breast cancer survivors in the United States today keep our hope alive for better treatment and prevention methods in the future. That is why here at Blue Moon Hemp we want to bring attention to the cause of breast cancer prevention, treatment, and research. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, for the entire month of October we will be selling special-made Blue Moon Hemp breast cancer awareness shirts and donating $5 from every shirt sold to breast cancer research. With every purchase of a Blue Moon Hemp breast cancer shirt, you will be supporting a noble cause that affects so many lives every day.

Maitake D-Fraction Mushroom Extract and Breast Cancer
 
01:50:14
October 12, 2011 -- One Cell One Light with Dr. Hildegarde Staninger, RIET-1 Guest: Mark J. Kaylor, VP Education and Research - Mushroom Wisdom http://mushroomwisdom.com Often thought of as nothing more than food, the mighty mushroom has actually been used for many years in traditional medicine in the treatment of several diseases. In fact, mushrooms have been a subject of modern medical research since the 1960s, where most modern medical studies concern the use of mushroom extracts, rather than whole mushrooms. Some mushroom extracts have been found to modulate immune system responses and inhibit tumor growth. But recent research has found that maitake mushrooms in particular can be used in treating breast cancer in women. This week, Dr. Staninger's guest will be Mark J. Kaylor, Vice President of Education and Research of Mushroom Wisdom , E. Rutherford, N.J. A former doctoral student, Mark's life took an abrupt turn when a part-time job in a health food store awakened in him a passion for holistic health and healing. His company, Mushroom Wisdom, brings the healthful benefits of medicinal mushrooms, backed by rigorous scientific research, to the daily routines of consumers worldwide. Mushroom Wisdom offers a complete product line, including specific products developed to support the immune system, brain function, blood sugar levels, breast health, prostate health and more. Commonly known to English speakers as Ram's Head or Sheep's Head, maitake mushrooms were introduced to the United States by Mushroom Wisdom in 1991 and is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year. Through the work of researchers in Portugal and Argentina, study of the mushroom has confirmed that its extract has induced apoptosis (cell death) in the cells of breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Encouraging news, to say the least. It would seem that the Super Mario Bros. are no longer the only ones aware of the beneficial powers of mushrooms.

Nebraska Collaborative Lab
 
06:51
A unique collaboration between two of the state's leading health care entities will bring another resource of high-level molecular testing to the Omaha market. This is the first tangible evidence of the Accountable Care Alliance at work since its formation in 2010. The Nebraska Collaborative Laboratory (NCL) will initially perform high-level molecular testing for breast cancer, lung cancer and sarcomas. FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization) testing provides supplemental diagnostic information, based on a patient's tumor DNA, to determine the most effective course of treatment with the least amount of side effects. According to Julia Bridge, M.D., medical director of the NCL and professor at the University Of Nebraska Medical Center, molecular FISH testing improves the quality of patient care while saving time and money. This is achieved by avoiding treatments that will not produce a desired result in an individual patient based on the presence or absence of a gene alteration in their tumor sample. Conducting molecular FISH testing to predict which therapy a patient may or may not respond to reduces unnecessary negative side effects possibly associated with an ineffective treatment plan. "The assessment of gene alterations by molecular approaches, such as FISH, has revolutionized the care of patients with specific types of cancers," Dr. Bridge said. "Increasingly, more cancer treatments are becoming available that are based on the genetic alterations or defects that are believed to cause that cancer to grow. To pinpoint these 'targeted therapies' that interfere with tumor growth and progression, the associated molecular target must first be identified in the patient's tumor sample." This is where the NCL will come into play. For example, the examination for the presence of too many copies of a gene called ERBB2 (HER2) by FISH in the tumor cells of a patient with breast cancer is critical to selecting the appropriate medicine (HER2 targeted therapy) for that patient. "Molecular characterization of many different cancer types by FISH also provides vital diagnostic information that is carefully integrated with traditional pathology for the most precise classification and guidance of treatment recommendations," Dr. Bridge said. An internationally renowned subject expert, Dr. Bridge will oversee lab operations. Joining Dr. Bridge will be a group of experienced medical scientists in the field. The NCL will be located at The Pathology Center -- Schenken Pavilion on the Methodist Hospital Campus. Representatives of Methodist Hospital and The Nebraska Medical Center visited similar labs across the country to determine its feasibility in Omaha. The group determined that by combining resources for efficiency, NCL would provide savings to both organizations through shared expenses. "The NCL is an example of how independent organizations can work together on collaborative projects," said Glenn A. Fosdick, President and CEO, The Nebraska Medical Center. "As changes continue to take hold in the health care industry, we knew there would be price pressures on laboratories to reduce costs. So, we put the idea on the table and created teams of medical laboratory scientists and physicians to research it. Obviously, we found cost savings for the organizations and benefits for our patients." Methodist Hospital and The Nebraska Medical Center administrators expect an enhanced level of service and better turn around times on test results by eliminating the delay of sending such test results out of state. They also expect to realize cost savings through efficiencies created by combining resources and through offering lab services to other health care facilities in the region. The NCL will become not only a regional testing site, but a national resource for this type of testing. Future plans for the NCL will include expansion of sophisticated laboratory platforms while continuing to control costs. Steve Goeser, President and CEO of Methodist Hospital, said the collaboration will generate efficiencies for both organizations. "It did not make sense to take on this expense independently," Goeser said. "Together, through the Accountable Care Alliance, our organizations are improving the availability of these services to patients in Omaha while saving money through bigger discount pricing. Also, by electing to not send some tests out of state and use the combined volume to bring the testing in-house, we become even more efficient." The Accountable Care Alliance builds upon a long-standing, mutually respectful relationship between the physicians of The Nebraska Medical Center and Methodist Health System. The ACA network will make it possible for The Nebraska Medical Center and Methodist Health System providers, collectively, to improve communications, reduce duplication of tests and procedures, and work together to improve the care experience of patients in the community.

James Genomics Testing Leads to Personalized Breast Cancer Treatment
 
01:01
Genomics are giving James doctors blueprints for better breast cancer treatment. James breast oncologists are using genomic data—a kind of “blueprint for how cells function—to develop personalized treatment programs for breast cancer patients. Through genetic testing, our doctors are able to identify markers—like BRCA mutations—that can influence cancer growth and behavior, leading to treatment regimens with components and durations tailored to individual patients. “In the past, we thought of breast cancer, I think, as a cookie cutter. We gave everyone chemotherapy, then an estrogen-positive, anti-estrogen therapy,” The James’ Dr. Nicole Williams says. “Now we’re using genomic testing, for example, in estrogen-positive women, to see if they may or may not benefit from chemotherapy. So, we’re personalizing breast cancer more on an individual basis.”
Sonocine - Sonogram Results for Breast Cancer Detection
 
01:53
SonoCiné, Inc is a privately held medical technology company that has developed an innovative, patented, investigational imaging process, SonoCiné. Early study data suggest that SonoCiné may considerably enhance the physician's ability to diagnose disease and study tissues whose images have been generated by state-of-the-art medical scanners. The physician is thus able to provide patients with more definitive and reliable diagnoses from their imaging examinations. Breast, vascular and orthopedic ultrasound, echocardiography, MRI and CT are among some of the possible applications of SonoCiné. SonoCiné utilizes the most advanced medical imaging scanners, including the Siemens Acuson Sequoia™ and the Philips HDI 5000™, to generate image sequences. These sequences are then reconstructed by SonoCiné's viewing system into both 2D and 3D interactive ciné loops. Kevin M. Kelly, MD, the inventor of SonoCiné, credits Firehand Technologies Corporation and its founder Matthew W. Smith for the computer technology that enabled his invention. At present, the most important investigational use of SonoCiné is computer-guided ultrasound whole-breast cancer detection. The SonoCiné breast cancer detection process collects 2,000 to 5,000 permanent ultrasound images from throughout both breasts and optimally presents these images for later radiologist review on a high-resolution monitor. Although SonoCiné is still undergoing clinical evaluation, data to date suggest that when used with mammography, SonoCiné whole-breast ultrasound may reduce the chance of undetected breast cancer and the necessity of radical or invasive treatment through early detection. SonoCiné, Inc. anticipates that upon FDA approval, there will be significant demand for its products and services, especially for SonoCiné whole-breast ultrasound because breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death and illness in women worldwide.

Shaney Jo Darden Talks Life, Art And Breast Cancer - Presented by Werewolves and Silver Bullets
 
02:20
In 1999 when Shaney jo Darden discovered a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, she set out to make a difference in a way that honored her friend's passion: art. As a result, Keep A Breast was born as a unique art concept developed to showcase the physical and emotional challenges of breast cancer. Shaney enlisted a group of female volunteers, and wrapped their upper torsos in strips of plaster-soaked gauze. Once hardened and removed, these white plaster forms were distributed to Modart artists like Shepard Fairey, to be used as blank canvases. In that moment, Shaney sparked a new conversation about breast cancer; one that was unique, creative, and relevant to young people. It wasn't just how Shaney engaged people, it is what she has engaged them with: prevention. While being deeply invested in finding a cure, she is helping young women make everyday choices that give them the best opportunity to beat cancer. For example, street art all over the world is inspiring young people to join the "Non-Toxic Revolution," a movement what warns against the dangers of toxic chemicals in their environment and food supply—especially those linked to the initiation of breast cancer.

UH Moment: Estrogen Research in Colon and Breast Cancer Treatment and Prevention
 
01:01
Armed with National Cancer Institute funding, Cecilia Williams, an assistant professor in the University of Houston's Biology and Biochemistry Department, is leading single-cell level research aimed at better preventing and treating colon cancer and two types of breast cancer. Williams is studying estrogen hormones and the mechanics of regulatory molecules called nuclear receptors. Williams believes estrogen can help combat inflammation in colon cells and 'turn off' cancer-promoting genes. "Estrogen receptor beta is the one that appears protective against colon cancer," said Williams. "So, if you can activate that one (nuclear receptor), specifically in the colon, then we could prevent or delay colon cancer development." Williams is currently working to better understand exactly how this is able to happen and is testing a hypothesis.

America's Longest War, Against Cancer
 
01:46:42
In 1971, Richard Nixon declared war on cancer. Five decades and billions of dollars later, cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the United States. But promising advances in immunotherapy and other cutting-edge research, plus efforts like Joe Biden's "cancer moonshot," have reinvigorated the battle and raised new hopes. Now the entire way we look at cancer is changing from monolithic condition to a wide range of different diseases requiring different approaches. Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, fighting cancer meant using targeted therapies to attempt to wipe out compromised cells. But today iconoclastic cancer researchers are taking a different approach: What if, they ask, the human body is more like an ecosystem? What if cancer cells are active members within that habitat? Billions of years of evolution have endowed ecosystems with ways of remaining healthy despite predators, exploiters, cheaters, and deadbeats. And if researchers apply predictable ecological management principles to cancer treatment we might reframe the disease in a way that leads to effective new treatments instead of an ever unattainable cure.
