Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) currently has no cure, but researchers at The University of MD Anderson Cancer Center have made great strides. By using targeted therapy drugs, they’re dramatically improving survival and treatment response rates for MCL patients.

“It’s an exciting time for mantle cell lymphoma patients,” says Michael Wang, M.D., professor of Lymphoma/Myeloma at MD Anderson.

Listen to this podcast to hear Wang and Jorge Romaguera, M.D., deputy chairman of Lymphoma/Myeloma, discuss the latest in mantle cell lymphoma treatment and research: #lymphoma #lymsm #cancerresearch #cancertreatment #podcast #cancer #endcancer

Baby boomers make up close to 30% of the U.S. population. They’re also five times as likely to have hepatitis C. Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have developed a mathematical model using data from more than 30 clinical trials and surveys. Using this model, they were able to predict that a one-time screening of baby boomers could identify 487,000 cases of hepatitis C and lead to treatment that would make hepatitis C a rare disease in the next 22 years.

It’s common for cancer patients to experience stress and anxiety during cancer treatment. One thing that can help ease those cancer treatment symptoms is sleep yoga. Also called yoga nidra, this type of yoga helps patients slow down their minds and relax, says Smitha Mallaiah, a mind/body intervention specialist in Integrative Medicine at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can prevent up to 90% of cervical cancer cases. It also can prevent vulvar cancer and vaginal cancer, and may reduce a person’s chances of developing several types of head and neck cancer. In addition, it can prevent a pre-cancer of the cervix caused by HPV. This pre-cancer results in repeated doctor’s appointments and surgeries, creating stress for patients and a drain on our medical resources. Lois Ramondetta, M.D., professor of Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, calls it “one of the biggest health problems that we have in the United States today.”
Listen to this podcast to hear Ramondetta and Erich Sturgis, M.D., professor of Head and Neck Surgery at MD Anderson, discuss the benefits of the HPV vaccine: #cervicalcancer #HPV #HPVvaccine #vulvarcancer #vaginalcancer #headandneckcancer #cancerprevention #caprev #gyncsm #hnclh #endcancer

Heard of flushing out your colon to improve your health and lower your colon cancer risk? Our experts say there’s no scientific proof to support those claims. The only time you should clean your colon is to prepare for a colonoscopy.

“Colon cleansing is not necessary and, in fact, may harm you,” says John R. Stroehlein, M.D., professor in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Unfortunately, screening tools don’t exists for all cancer types, but researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have developed a set of screening guidelines which recommend that people be screened regularly for certain cancers, including liver cancer.

“There are no national guidelines for liver cancer screening, partly because no clinical trial has been conducted to assess its effectiveness,” says Therese Bevers, M.D., medical director of MD Anderson’s Lyda Hill Cancer Prevention Center. “But emerging evidence suggests there may be benefits to screening populations at high risk.”

Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have discovered a protein that plays a key role in the spread of ovarian cancer. Our researched noticed that metatasizing tumor cells rely on the HER3 protein to hone in on the omentum, a sheath of fatty issues that covers and supports abdominal organs.
“This completely new way of thinking about ovarian cancer metastasis provides new potential avenues to predict and prevent recurrence or spread,” says Anil Sood, M.D., professor of Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine and Cancer Biology at MD Anderson.

Surena Matin, M.D., professor in Urology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, has played an integral role in the institution’s robotics program, which uses robotics and computer imaging to perform minimally invasive or endoscopic surgery. These surgeries have less of an impact on patients, allowing them to recovery more quickly. MD Anderson is using this method to treat prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer and gynecologic cancers.
