Cancer Rant

I had to tell someone I love last night that lemon juice will not cure his cancer. FUCK antiscientific rumours and false hope. They just distract from the best possible medical healthcare and the reality of the situation a person faces. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world are dedicating their lives, wholeheartedly, to a cure. They publish what they discover in books that anyone can read. When they find something that helps, we all know about it, including front line doctors. There is no evil conspiracy to hide the cure, it’s not hidden a test-tube somewhere in a vault. I wish it was, because it wouldn’t take long for someone else to replicate the result anyway. Next time you see some FUCKING BULLSHIT on the Internet, don’t hesitate to stomp it out.

Lorsque l’on parle de l’or, on pense aux mines, à la richesse ou aux nombreux bijoux faits de ce métal noble, mais certainement pas au cancer. Pourtant en chimie analytique, les propriétés optiques de l’or permettent la détection de certains types de cancer dont celui de la prostate et du sein. Cette propriété de l’or de changer de couleur est au centre des recherches du groupe de Jean-François Masson, professeur à l’Université de Montréal.

A bit more time for castration-resistant prostate cancer victims

A study published today in The Lancet by Dr. Fred Saad of the University of Montreal and Dr. Mathew R. Smith of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center reveals that the drug denosumab inhibits the bone metastasis of prostate cancer. The researchers worked with 1432 men suffering from a castration resistant prostate cancer and found that the bone-metastasis-free survival of those receiving the drug increasing by a median of 4·2 months compared to the control group. Overall survival did not differ between groups. Bone metastases are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in men with prostate cancer.

Dr. Fred Saad is available to speak with the media about this study and prostate cancer generally. To set up an interview or to obtain a copy of the study, please contact William Raillant-Clark, University of Montreal, at 514-343-7593 or w.raillant-clark@umontreal.ca
