Cancerdrugs

Typical cancer drugs are chemotherapic agents (cytostatics), which intend to destroy the malignant cells. Cytostatic agents inhibit cell division and thus cause cell death. Cancer medications can be given to reduce or destroy an existing tumor and to counteract a malignant tumor. Cytostatic agents affect all cells, even the healthy tissue is being hit. However, […]

Traditional cancer treatment

Cancer is the subject of intensive research and new therapies are constantly evolving. In this section, we focus on the traditional ways of treating cancer. If you are interested in complementary and integrative cancer treatments, you can find this information elsewhere on our website. The goal of cancer treatment is to cure the patient and […]

How does cancer develop

HOW DOES CANCER DEVELOP? Cancer is thought to develop as a consequence of genetic damage in normal cells. The damage can be congenital (10-15 percent of cancer cases) or be caused by, for example, external factors. The cell contains genes which in turn contain germ plasma (DNA) that determines how the cell’s proteins are to […]

Coffee is associated with better survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer

The almighty cup of coffee! Coffee has been with us for a long time in cold mornings and dawns. The reasons are several: One of them is to increase our body temperature a bit, which generally does not happen, but it does warm our hands when we drink it from a jug, or when we […]

Bee venom is being studied for breast cancer

The effect of bee venom (Apis mellifera) on breast cancer cells has been studied in Australia. Of particular interest was the effect of a key component of the toxin, melitin. The study found that the venom effectively killed various types of breast cancer. Quite a good effect of the venom was found on the aggressive […]

Cannabis and cancer pain

Cancer is often causing a decline of life quality due to the pain and suffering it is causing. An increasing number of patients are turning to cannabis and cannabinoids for management of their cancer pain and other cancer-related symptoms. Canadians have legalized medical cannabis, which provides a treatment protocol lacking robust clinical evidence.   In […]

What is Cancer?

WHAT IS NORMAL FUNCTION OF CELLS?   Every human body consists of billions of small cells. These form different tissues and organs such as skin, bone, blood, liver and many more. The cells in these organs have a variety of functions, the skin cells provide protection for the body, the blood cells transport nutrients and […]

Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy is usually given to supplement the surgical procedure and to reduce the risk of local spread. In some cancers, radiotherapy without surgery may suffice. Radiation therapy utilizes radioactive radiation that destroys cancer cells and shrinks the tumors by exposing cancer cells to radiation damage. Even healthy tissue is destroyed, but with modern technology healthy […]

Surgical treatment of cancer

One of the most important cancer treatments is that the cancer is surgically removed (surgical treatment). Malignant tumors, such as cancerous growth and sarcoma, are traditionally treated primarily by surgery. This is done to prevent cancer growth. Often, some healthy tissue must also be removed around the cancer. This is done to prevent the spread […]

Nobel-prize winning cancer research

The Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine, awarded annually, is a highly respected science award. For many years, the prize has been awarded to cancer researchers. In 2019, the prize was awarded to British molecular biologist Peter J. Ratcliffe and US physicians Gregg L. Semenza and William Kaelin for examining cellular oxygenation. The ability of […]

Why does cancer thrive in an acidic cellular environment?

Irish researcher Arvind Negi (National University of Galway) asked on the science channel ResearchGate (https://www.researchgate.net/ ) why a cancer cell both develops its own acidity and thrives in an acidic environment. He sparked quite a lively discussion. Here is a summary of the discussion. Greek breast cancer researcher Constantine Kaniklidis knew that acidification of the cellular […]
