A long-term follow-up study was performed of women who were treated for breast cancer during –50 at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, England.

After 21 years the observed survival curve for the treated patients and the expected survival curve for the normal population became parallel, suggesting a “cure rate” of about 18% for all cases of breast cancer and about 30% for Cited by: Clonally transmissible cancers are tumors or cancerous cells that originally developed in one individual organism but then passed on to different individuals through physical transfer of the cells (transmissibility).There are two well-established instances of clonally transmissible cancers — devil facial tumor disease (DFTD), which occurs in the marsupial Tasmanian devil via biting, and.

Clonally transmissible cancers are somatic cell lineages that are contagious between individuals via the transfer of living cancer cells. Only three transmissible cancers have been observed in nature, and these cause Tasmanian devil facial tumor disease (DFTD), canine transmissible venereal tumor (CTVT), and soft-shell clam disseminated neoplasia, respectively (1, 2).Cited by: What is Cancer.

¥Cancer is a genetic disease: ÐInherited cancer ÐSporadic cancer ¥Cancer typically involves a change in gene expression/function: ÐQualitative change ÐQuantitative change ¥Any cancer causing genetic alteration typically results in loss of cell growth control.

In some species, cancer cells can be directly transmitted between individuals. An analysis in shellfish now shows that some transmissible cancers can even cross the species barrier.

The War on Cancer: An Anatomy of Failure, a Blueprint for the Future is an analysis of the “numerous and complex issues responsible for the stagnation in cancer therapies” since the National Cancer Act of The author, academic hematologist-oncologist Guy Faguet, MD, states in the preface that the book's purpose is to examine the “root causes of three decades of disappointing Author: Randall Hughes, MD.

Cancer is found only in the organ where it started to grow. Regional Cancer has spread to the surrounding tissues or lymph nodes. Distant Cancer has spread to other organs and systems of the body. Staging is an important part of making a good diagnosis. Cancer in situ, cancer of an early stage with no invasion to surrounding tissue.

The non-communicability of a disease in general is hard to prove, as is any negative definition. In this case, it is just meaningless because Mayosi and colleagues report that some of the leading causes of death by cancer are transmissible agents such as human herpesvirus 8 (Kaposi's sarcoma), and human papillomavirus (cervical cancer).Author: Didier Raoult.

Interesting book. Granted, the title can sound a bit audacious, maybe even offensive to some people. Behind the bold words is hiding the message, that cancer is a symptom of an underlying sickness that the body is trying to cure itself off, via cancer. Kind of like getting a fever is a symptom of a flu, and not the cause of it or a disease in itself/5.

"Cancer is not a disease, it's a fighting mechanism" Yeah, for the cancer cell. A cancer cell is nothing more than a normal cell that's been damaged and can no longer take instructions from the body.

Instead of being removed by the immune system, it was left behind, possibly ignored. And it continued to survive on it's own, by using. What is the latency period for cancer. Cancer does not develop immediately follow-ing an exposure to a risk factor.

Cancer la-tency is the length of time between exposure to a cancer-causing agent and detection of the disease. For the majority of cancers the la-tency period can be as long as 15 to 30 years.

This book confronts you with a radically new understanding of cancer - one that outdates the current cancer model. On average, the conventional approaches of killing, cutting or burning cancerous cells offer most patients a remission rate of merely 7%, and the majority of the few survivors are "cured" for just five years or less/5().

What is cancer. Cancer is a disease that has to do with the body's cells. The body is made up of billions of cells. Normal cells grow and divide (split into two).

When they die, they are replaced by new cells. Sometimes, something goes wrong with some cells and they don't die. They divide out of control and may grow into a lump (tumour) called File Size: KB. In the introductory video in his website, Dr.

Lodi says: “I love cancer. The reason I love cancer is because, in the vast majority of people with cancer, it is the most powerful divine tap on the shoulder“. I wonder, if cancer is not a disease and only a tap on the shoulder, there is no disease at all.subsequently as a paperback book.

These authors summarized the scientific literature in order to estimate the proportions of cancer deaths due to avoidable causes in the U.S., based on a complex series of arguments and interpretations of the epidemiologic data. They produced a .cancer; another hereditary syndrome is charac-terized by high susceptibility to cancers of the colon and endometrium, and other inherited conditions are associated with other cancer sites.
