Re: Scientists perform successful trial of new antibiotic on cancer reoccurrence afte

It may be Zinc more than Calcium although both seem to be involved. I hate to split hairs but I want to be accurate. Both Zinc and Calcium (and the iron in Ferrous sulfate) are divalent (two positive...

Re: Scientists perform successful trial of new antibiotic on cancer reoccurrence afte

Very Interesting.
Ive always believed that the key to fighting cancer will be by using old drugs. Actually Doxycycline is a Tetracycline derivative. It has been known for years if not decades that...

Re: Can aspirin help treat cancer?

The use of Aspirin as a cancer treatment makes sense. One Caveat. Dont self medicate without the doctors knowledge. Asprinin reduced fever. If you are on any drug that lowers
the neutrophil count...

Re: Medical Marajuna Girls

I called Walgreens in Huntington Beach California and asked the price of thirty 25mg Movantik tablets without insurance. It is usually taken once daily. It was cheaper than I thought-four Hundred one...

Re: Medical Marajuna Girls

Cathy

Fast tracking the drug may well be a reason. Im not sure it is the only one. I reasoned pharmacologically that Ibrance could be used in Her2 Neu positive patients. I was t sure. sometimes...

Re: Medical Marajuna Girls

Ibrance is a fairly good drug. Some advances have been made. But the underlying suffering from cancer has not changed much in the fourty years I mentioned.

Its a crap shoot really. Some people...

Re: Medical Marajuna Girls

I agree with you 1000%. I worked as a pharmacist at Sloan Kettering in 1978. That was 40

Re: DS-8201A Trial

I looked up the drug. It is Herceptin conjugated with a Topoisomerase 1 inhibitor. This class of chemo drugs can cause ocular problems. Just a pharmacological guess but it makesd sense. Ask the doc...

Re: ZW25 clinical trial - day one

10mg of Decadron is a lot of steroid. It doesnt sound like much but Decadron is potent. Since 0.75mg of Decadron (Dexamethasone) =5mg Prednisone, 10mg Dexamethasone = about 66mg, almost 70mg of...

Re: Keytruda

Kaytruda stimulates the T cells of the immune system by blocking the PD-1 ligand. Yes you can have severe immune side effects but these are rare. The usual side effects are fatigue,...

Re: Treatment after Kadcyla?

Re: Treatment after Kadcyla?

As far as I know Herceptin use has nothing to do with Xeloda. The closest thing would be the combination of Lapatinib 1250mg daily (Lapatanib= Tykerb) plus Xeloda 1000mg/m2 twice a day....
