Article #1 is very important to men taking chemo or high levels of antibiotics. I am living proof of the need for probiotics. Twice I have taken Taxotere, (Chemo) and both times had a fever that landed me in the hospital. After large quantities of antibiotics for a fever, I left the hospital with major stomach problems and regained the fever. I started taking Yoghurt, (a natural probiotic) and within a couple of days my stomach problems and fever were gone.
Article #2 From the National Cancer Institute deals with a new breakthrough “UroNav” electronically fusing together pictures from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound to create a detailed, three-dimensional view of the prostate, which physicians can then use to guide precision biopsies. Introduction of this commercial product was the result of nearly a decade’s research and development, principally conducted at the National Cancer Institute, whose investigators have no financial stake in UroNav.
1) Breakthrough Study: Probiotics Save Cancer Patients from Deadly Chemo
” You may already know that a healthy gut and plenty of probiotics to support your gastrointestinal health are absolutely critical to boosting your immune system (gut flora may account for 80% of immunity), but a new study coming from the University of Michigan has proven that probiotics may just be the answer to poisonous chemotherapy treatments and the overuse of antibiotics which tend to kill all the good bacteria in our bodies.Chemotherapy as a treatment for cancer, the antibiotics which are often prescribed post-treatment also kill whatever good bacteria are left, thus causing an absolute crisis for the immune system”!
2) National Cancer Institute clinician-scientists at the forefront of new prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment
“”UroNav” electronically fusing together pictures from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound to create a detailed, three-dimensional view of the prostate, Three members of the team—diagnostic radiologist Peter Choyke, M.D.; interventional radiologist Brad Wood, M.D.; and surgeon Peter Pinto, M.D.—recently sat down, along with medical oncologist William Dahut, M.D., clinical director of NCI’s Center for Cancer Research, to discuss the challenges of prostate cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment; benefits of image-guided biopsies; and the future of prostate cancer care.
