Trial To Match Cancer Treatment To Patients’ Genes

Some patients with advanced lung cancer are set to be included in a trial in which tailor-made treatment will be matched to the specific genetic profile of their disease.

Personalised treatments could later be extended to cover those with other types of cancer.

The pioneering technique has been made possible by a partnership between Cancer Research UK and the pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and Pfizer and the NHS which will give access to 14 medications which target very rare very specific and often rare genetic mutations. This will allow several drugs to be tested at the same time, within a single trial.

It is thought that this could offer new hope for patients who otherwise would have very limited treatment options.

In a statement, Dr Harpal Kumar, Cancer Research UK’s chief executive, says:

“This is a very important step forward in the fight against cancer. This partnership is exciting because we’re trying to achieve something that none of us could manage alone – targeting treatments towards the patients who we know are the most likely to benefit.

“It’s also a programme that can uniquely be carried out in the UK, because of our National Health Service and the network of Centres across the country supported by Cancer Research UK.”

Researchers will examine the genetics of each lung tumour to select a small group of patients who are more likely to benefit from a certain drug. They will then look for signs of improvement, such as increased survival, tumour shrinkage or an alleviation of symptoms.

Medicines that show promise in the small groups of patients may be fast-tracked into larger trials involving more patients with the same genetic changes. Also, new medicines can be added to the existing trial as new experimental treatments filter through from the lab.

The trial will be led by chief investigator Professor Gary Middleton based at the Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Birmingham. Patients will be recruited at hospitals across the UK, through Cancer Research UK’s Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC) network.

In a statement, Professor Middleton says:

“This is one of the largest ever personalised medicine trials in any cancer, one which attempts to match the right treatment to the right patient based on an in-depth understanding of what makes their own cancer cells grow and survive.

“For our patients, it’s a tremendous opportunity to access a wide-range of therapies tailored specifically to their particular type of lung cancer. For people caring for lung cancer patients in the UK, it’s exciting to be able to offer these treatments to patients when they’re still at a very early stage of clinical development.”

Around 42,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK every year, with around 35,000 deaths from the disease.

SARA’s Wyre Forest Rescue Charity Gone #BananasforSARA To Replace Stolen and Vandalised Equipment

BananasForSARASARA’s Wyre Forest Rescue Station was the victim of an unbelievable burglary and vandalism that has seriously damaged two Mountian Rescue Land Rovers, with equipment including the Rapid Deployment Craft (RDC) affectionately known as the banana boat, fuel being stolen from the vehicles and also locked boat sheds, on the 7th April causing at least £4000 worth of damage.

SARA WFRS remains on call for all incidents, but the Team appeals for any information on this crime to be reported immediately to West Mercia Police. SARA need to replace and repair key equipment as a direct result of this and rely completely on public donations to cover running costs.

Two of SARA’s teams have been tasked to three life risk incidents this week alone and this equipment is key to operations.

They have now gone bananas, can you? Please go #BananasForSARA post a picture of you & a banana, text “SARA04 £2″ to 70070 & help us replace our stolen banana boat.

Wyre Forest MP is disgusted by the shocking vandalism of SARA and urges Wyre Forest constituents support the charity

Mark Garnier said

“SARA spent last winter and this Christmas and New Year volunteering to help safe guard people affected by the severe flooding. They save lives and work incredibly hard. It is absolutely despicable that anybody would violate a charity and life saving equipment in this way.”

SARA relies on donations and volunteers to provide the vital support and now need volunteers more than ever. I would urge Wyre Forest constituents to support the charity in any way that they can.

Donations can be made via their website: http://www.sara-rescue.org.uk/stations/wyre-forest/

Cristiano Ronaldo Pays 83,000 Euros For Sick Baby’s Operation

He is officially the world’s best footballer and his critics say he has the ego to match that status.

But multi-millionaire superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has shown a side of himself that few get to see – by donating more than £50,000 from his bulging wallet to pay for a desperately ill 10-month-old baby’s operation.

Erik Ortiz Cruz was born with a neurological disorder that causes him to have up to 30 epileptic fits a day.

Surgery is the only solution to his condition but the boy’s family has been unable to meet massive hospital bills with each test carried out costing around £5,000 (6,000 euros) and surgery likely to run to £50,200 (60,000 euros).

So big-hearted Real Madrid star Ronaldo, touched by the boy’s local community’s attempts to raise the money themselves, stepped in to fund the life changing medical care.

The player was at first asked to donate boots and a shirt to a fund-raising auction but decided to go the extra mile and foot the bill.

Motivation Running Quotes

feet running trainnersDuring your pains and efforts and belabored breaths, remember the pains and belabored breaths of the dying who, at this very second, fight for every last second of life. Then suddenly, the real reason for the race gives you strength.

In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.

Running takes balls. Other sports just play with them.

We are different, in essence, from other men. If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon.

Everything you ever wanted to know about yourself you can learn in 26.2 miles

The miracle isn’t that I finished; it’s that I had the courage to start.
