Subject: Theranostics - Combining Imaging & therapy in the next 3 to 5 Years a Video by Dr Phillip Koo at MD Anderson Clinic

Us Too Warriors, It is Important to keep fighting your cancer with diet, spices, anti-oxidant polyphenols from color fruits and food along with anti-inflammatories like curcumin add exercise with health oils like olive oil plus throw in a few off label drugs use of anticancer drugs (I am know using 7 off label drugs) and I hope to be around in 2023 when the FDA approves the theranostic procedures shown in the Video attached below. I hope I will not need to go overseas to have access to the procedures which will be available in Europe and India sooner maybe 2 years.
All the best Peter

Development of artemisinin compounds for cancer treatment.

Author's information - Abstract

Artemisinin contains an endoperoxide moiety that can react with iron to
form cytotoxic free radicals. Cancer cells contain significantly more intracellular
free iron than normal cells and it has been shown that artemisinin and its analogs
selectively cause apoptosis in many cancer cell lines. In addition, artemisinin
compounds have been shown to have anti-angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-metastasis
and growth inhibition effects. These properties make artemisinin compounds attractive
cancer chemotherapeutic drug candidates. However, simple artemisinin analogs are
less potent than traditional cancer chemotherapeutic agents and have short plasma
half-lives, and would require high dosage and frequent administration to be effective
for cancer treatment. More potent and target-selective artemisinin-compounds are being
developed. These include artemisinin dimers and trimers, artemisinin hybrid compounds
and tagging of artemisinin compounds to molecules that are involved in the intracellular
iron-delivery mechanism. These compounds are promising potent anticancer compounds
that produce significantly less side effect than traditional chemotherapeutic agents.

The following video segments were taped during the Us TOO Community Conversation on Prostate Cancer

Education about all aspects of the disease is very important since prostate cancer has no symptoms until it’s advanced. It’s also the
most common cancer among men accounting for nearly 30,000 deaths annually. But with informed decision making, it’s possible to diagnose
prostate cancer early and manage it effectively. The Community Conversation events provide an overview on prostate cancer, physician
presentations, educational materials, survivor stories, and sponsor introductions.

The following video segments were taped during the Us TOO Community Conversation on Prostate Cancer, which was a feature presentation
at the Michigan Institute of Urology’s Sixth Annual Men’s Health Event at Ford Field in Detroit, MI, on Saturday, September 24, 2016.
The same information was discussed in the morning session by Dr. Jason Hafron and again in the afternoon session by Dr. Elisabeth Heath.
The entire event was also broadcast live on the internet.

This is an A to Z learning experience. These short videos will give you the starting points you need to help you make your decisions on this
journey - none of us wish to take. You will fine the time spent here is well worth it.
