Listen to Coronavirus Patient Zero
Over the past 30 years many significant advances have been made in the management of a number of disseminated malignant diseases. The prognosis for diseases such as childhood leukaemia, choriocarcinoma and Hodgkin's disease has gradually been transformed as better anti tumour agents have become available and their clinical use has been refined. During the past 10 years the advent of new agents, particularly cisplatin, bleomycin and the podophyllotoxins, has allowed the cure of disseminated testicular tumours. This degree of success has not, however, been achieved in the case of a number of other common cancers. Ovarian carcinoma is tantalisingly chemo-sensitive and although there are long term survivors from disseminated disease, these are only a small proportion of the total. Breast cancer, although "sensitive" to a multitude of drugs appears to have yielded neither survival benefit, nor cure to the efforts of therapists, while tumours such as those of the colon remain stubbornly unresponsive. Against this backcloth it is apparent that additional more selective treatments are needed if further impact is to be made on the problem of cancer. The development of such agents requires the integration of a multidisciplinary effort encompassing the fields of chemistry, biology and medicine. This symposium provided a forum for clinical and preclinical sCientists, where current aspects of cancer treatment were reviewed and approaches to the development of a new generation of more selective anticancer drugs discussed.
Being in the forest lifts your spirit like nothing else. A walk in the woods always makes you feel better. Here's a special journal dedicated to the special connection we have with things growing in the forest. On the cover is a wonderful close up of an oak tree on an early summer night. And here's your companion journal to record all about your woods walks. Places to note special animal sightings, write down the flowers you see, press a leaf or two between the pages, journal about how good the woods make you feel. 5.5 x 8.5" lightweight enough to easily tuck into your bag the next time you venture out. Splendor!
