The OSUCCC – James Patient Education Department has created a video about nutrition, and how to manage taste changes and a dry or sore mouth. This video is a part of a growing library of recordings designed to enhance patient learning and to encourage patients to take an active role in their care. Our hope is for these videos to provide information to help cancer patients and their loved ones better understand their condition and treatment. → For more information about James patient education videos, call 614-293-5853.

A new collaborative research program pairs oncologists who treat childhood and adult sarcomas with veterinarians who manage the same cancers in canine patients. The ultimate goal, says director Cheryl London, DVM, PhD, is to speed up the pace of translational research discoveries and new treatments for sarcoma, a diverse group of cancerous tumors that occur in soft tissue or bone. http://ow.ly/YG4s3013COK

While no husband or son should have to experience the loss of a wife or mother, Douglas Alsdorf and his son Garrett are committed to ensuring no one else has to experience the tragedy they did. http://ow.ly/y33q302rt44
When they lost their wife and mother to metastatic breast cancer, Douglas Alsdorf and his son Garrett were empowered to remember her, and ensure others didn't have to experience their pain.

New cancer research at The James shows that SPF 30 sunscreens not only protect the skin from sunburns, but can also actually delay the onset of melanoma.

NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center for Prevention, Detection, and Treatment
Introduction

The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute strives to create a cancer-free world by integrating scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care, a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. Ohio State is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and one of only four centers funded by the NCI to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials. The NCI recently rated Ohio State’s cancer program as “exceptional,” the highest rating given by NCI survey teams. As the cancer program’s 306-bed adult patient-care component, The James is a “Top Hospital” as named by the Leapfrog Group and one of the top cancer hospitals in the nation as ranked by U.S.News & World Report.
