The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has been ranked the nation’s top hospital for cancer care, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual “Best Hospitals” survey. MD Anderson has ranked as one of the nation’s top two hospitals for cancer care every year since the survey’s inception in 1990, and ranked first 13 times in the last 16 years.

“To consistently be recognized for the quality and compassionate cancer care we provide patients who come to MD Anderson seeking our innovative approaches, world-renowned expertise and decades of experience is a true honor,” said Marshall Hicks, M.D., president ad interim of MD Anderson. “This ranking recognizes the passion of our 20,000 extraordinary employees and 1,000 volunteers for serving our patients and realizing our mission to end cancer. We are grateful, honored and proud to be the top-ranked cancer center in this national survey.” http://bit.ly/2vIaCLl #cancer #hospital #mdanderson #cancertreatment #cancercare #usnews #endcancer

‘Omics studies and big data will never fully replace the more traditional one gene/one protein studies, says our Dr. John Weinstein, but the two are complementary and can help us learn more about cancer and how it forms.

This knowledge can help us can take further steps toward true precision medicine so we can customize treatments for our cancer patients by using the best therapies for their specific tumor characteristics. #endcancer

When her colorectal cancer spread to her liver and didn't respond to chemotherapy, Elsie Kroeger enrolled in a clinical trial.

The trial, which delivers up to 40 times more radiation than conventional radiation therapy with tiny beads, uses a machine to aim high-energy radiation beams from outside the body into the liver.

“The radiation kills the tumors from within and targets multiple tumors in the liver all at once, while sparing healthy liver tissue,” explains our Dr. Armeen Mahvash. #endcancer
