Cancer Vaccine Program
"The science has evolved to the point where this is really possible. The idea of a therapeutic cancer vaccine isn't just a dream; it finally is something that is potentially within our grasp."
J. Mark Lievonen, President of Aventis Pasteur Limited. New discoveries are daily bringing the prospect of therapeutic cancer vaccines closer to reality. Aventis Pasteur scientists, together with collaborators around the world, are delving into basic science how the immune system works, how cancer cells mutate and grow, how the two interact and creating new worlds of understanding. Aventis Pasteur is currently testing this immunotherapeutic approach with clinical trials initially focusing on two main targets colorectal cancer and melanoma. While there is still much work to be done, the initial results of human clinical trials are promising. Three major types of cells are important in the immune response to cancer. These cells are the antigen-presenting cells, B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes. Other cells, such as natural killer cells and polymorphonuclear cells, may also play a role.

What is lung cancer?
Cancer is a disease in which certain body cells don't function right, divide very fast, and produce too much tissue that forms a tumor. The lungs, a pair of sponge-like, cone-shaped organs, are part of the body's respiratory system. When we breathe in, the lungs take in oxygen, which our cells need to live and carry out their normal functions. When we breathe out, the lungs get rid of carbon dioxide, which is a waste product of the body's cells. Cancers that begin in the lungs are divided into two major types, non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer, depending on how the cells look under a microscope. Each type of lung cancer grows and spreads in different ways and is treated differently.
Why should I be concerned about lung cancer?
Did you know that lung cancer kills more women every year than breast cancer? Researchers continue to study the causes of lung cancer and to search for ways to prevent it. But, about 90% of all lung cancer deaths among women are from smoking. Even though we know its effects are harmful, 1 out of every 5 women in the U.S. still smokes. We already know that the best way to prevent lung cancer is to quit (or never start) smoking. The sooner a person quits smoking the better. Even if you have been smoking for many years, it's never too late to benefit from quitting.

Breast cancer information including early signs and symptoms of breast cancer,myths, early detection, breast cancer research and more from National Breast
This year in America, more than 211,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In addition, 1,600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 400 will die this year. If detected early, the five-year survival rate exceeds 95%. Mammograms are among the best early detection methods, yet 13 million U.S. women 40 years of age or older have never had a mammogram. Support The National Breast Cancer Foundation today and give the gift of hope to those in need.

91. Thyroid Cancer: Diagnosis, Treatment And Prognosis.
An introduction to the different types of cancer, nodules, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.
Updated September 4, 2005 There are about 20,000 new cases of thyroid cancer each year in the United States. Females are more likely to have thyroid cancer at a ratio of three to one. Thyroid cancer can occur in any age group, although it is most common after age 30 and its aggressiveness increases significantly in older patients. The majority of patients present with a nodule on their thyroid which typically does not cause symptoms. Remember, over 99% of thyroid nodules are not cancer! But, when a thyroid cancer does begin to grow within a thyroid gland, it almost always does so within a discrete nodule within the thyroid.
Occasionally, symptoms such as hoarseness, neck pain, and enlarged lymph nodes do occur. Although as much as 75 % of the population will have thyroid nodules, the vast majority are benign. Young people usually don't have thyroid nodules, but as we get older, more and more of us will develop a nodule. By the time we are 80, 90% of us will have at least one nodule. Far less than 1% of all thyroid nodules are malignant. A nodule which is cold on scan (shown in photo outlined in red and yellow) is more likely to be malignant, nevertheless, the majority of these are benign as well. A lot of information about thyroid nodules and the potential of these nodules to be malignant is contained on 3 pages about nodules:
  • Introduction to thyroid nodules The workup of thyroid nodules and the role of Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (FNA) The role of thyroid ultrasound and what it means

  • Types of Thyroid Cancer
