Coronary Artery Disease
The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.

Wounds and Injuries
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.

Regional survey of femoral neck fractures. (1/47319)In the South-west Thames Region 2619 patients (2105 women and 514 men) were discharged with a diagnosis of femoral neck fracture in 1974. The equivalent of a 250-bedded hospital was occupied throughout the year. The incidence, average length of stay, and mortality rate rose with increasing age and there were differences in these indices in the five health areas. These results confirm the enormous burden placed on the hospital service by patients with fracture of the femoral neck but suggest that differences in practice in the five areas may contribute to the size of the problem.

Investigation of maturation requirements for Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora larvae. (2/47319)Infection of parasite-free six to eight week old calves with doses of 50,000 mixed Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora larvae varying in age from seven to 42 days did not reveal a significant larval maturation requirement.

Methoxyflurane nephropathy. (3/47319)Investigations of methoxyflurane-induced nephrotoxicity in man have been extensively aided by the use of an animal model. To be of value the animal model must share similar metabolic pathways with man and have the same clinical manifestations of the diseases process. The Fischer 344 rat appears to meet these criteria. The predominant factors in the production of methoxyflurane nephrotoxicity appear to be high methoxyflurane dosage and serum inorganic fluoride concentration. It is likely that secondary factors include: (1) a high rate of methoxyflurane metabolism and sepsitivity of the kidney to inorganic fluoride toxicity: (2) concurrent treatment with other nephrotoxic drugs; (3) preexisting renal disease; (4) surgery of the urogenital tract, aorta, or renal vasculative; (5) repeat administration of methoxyflurane due to accumulation of inorganic fluoride and, perhaps, methoxyflurane induction of its own metabolism: and (6) concurrent treatment with enzyme-inducing drugs such as phenobarbital.

Determination of human body burden baseline date of platinum through autopsy tissue analysis. (4/47319)Results of analysis for platinum in 97 autopsy sets are presented. Analysis was performed by a specially developed emission spectrochemical method. Almost half of the individuals studied were found to have detectable platinum in one or more tissue samples. Platinum was found to be deposited in 13 of 21 tissue types investigated. Surprisingly high values were observed in subcutaneous fat, previously not considered to be a target site for platinum deposition. These data will serve as a human tissue platinum burden baseline in EPA's Catalyst Research Program. (+info)
VEGF is required for growth and survival in neonatal mice. (5/47319)We employed two independent approaches to inactivate the angiogenic protein VEGF in newborn mice: inducible, Cre-loxP- mediated gene targeting, or administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, a soluble VEGF receptor chimeric protein. Partial inhibition of VEGF achieved by inducible gene targeting resulted in increased mortality, stunted body growth and impaired organ development, most notably of the liver. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, which achieves a higher degree of VEGF inhibition, resulted in nearly complete growth arrest and lethality. Ultrastructural analysis documented alterations in endothelial and other cell types. Histological and biochemical changes consistent with liver and renal failure were observed. Endothelial cells isolated from the liver of mFlt(1-3)-IgG-treated neonates demonstrated an increased apoptotic index, indicating that VEGF is required not only for proliferation but also for survival of endothelial cells. However, such treatment resulted in less significant alterations as the animal matured, and the dependence on VEGF was eventually lost some time after the fourth postnatal week. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG to juvenile mice failed to induce apoptosis in liver endothelial cells. Thus, VEGF is essential for growth and survival in early postnatal life. However, in the fully developed animal, VEGF is likely to be involved primarily in active angiogenesis processes such as corpus luteum development. (+info)
Expression of Bcl-2 protein is decreased in colorectal adenocarcinomas with microsatellite instability. (6/47319)Bcl-2 is known to inhibit apoptosis and is thought to play a role in colorectal tumour development. Studies of the promoter region of bcl-2 have indicated the presence of a p53 responsive element which downregulates bcl-2 expression. Since p53 is commonly mutated in colorectal cancers, but rarely in those tumours showing microsatellite instability (MSI), the aim of this study was to examine the relationship of bcl-2 protein expression to MSI, as well as to other clinicopathological and molecular variables, in colorectal adenocarcinomas. Expression of bcl-2 was analysed by immunohistochemistry in 71 colorectal cancers which had been previously assigned to three classes depending upon their levels of MSI. MSI-high tumours demonstrated instability in three or more of six microsatellite markers tested, MSI-low tumours in one or two of six, and MSI-null in none of six. Bcl-2 expression in tumours was quantified independently by two pathologists and assigned to one of five categories, with respect to the number of cells which showed positive staining: 0, up to 5%; 1, 6-25%; 2, 26-50%; 3, 51-75%; and 4, > or =76%. Bcl-2 negative tumours were defined as those with a score of 0. Bcl-2 protein expression was tested for association with clinicopathological stage, differentiation level, tumour site, age, sex, survival, evidence of p53 inactivation and MSI level. A significant association was found between bcl-2 expression and patient survival (P = 0.012, Gehan Wilcoxon test). Further, a significant reciprocal relationship was found between bcl-2 expression and the presence of MSI (P = 0.012, Wilcoxon rank sum test). We conclude that bcl-2 expressing colorectal cancers are more likely to be MSI-null, and to be associated with improved patient survival. (+info)
Accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in mice deficient in the nucleotide excision repair gene XPA. (7/47319)Inheritable mutations in nucleotide excision repair (NER) genes cause cancer-prone human disorders, such as xeroderma pigmentosum, which are also characterized by symptoms of accelerated ageing. To study the impact of NER deficiency on mutation accumulation in vivo, mutant frequencies have been determined in liver and brain of 2-16 month old NER deficient XPA-/-, lacZ hybrid mice. While mutant frequencies in liver of 2-month old XPA-/-, lacZ mice were comparable to XPA+/-, lacZ and the lacZ parental strain animals, by 4 months of age mutant frequencies in the XPA-deficient mice were significantly increased by a factor of two and increased further until the age of 16 months. In brain, mutant frequencies were not found to increase with age. These results show that a deficiency in the NER gene XPA causes an accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in liver but not in brain. This is in keeping with a higher incidence of spontaneous liver tumors reported earlier for XPA-/- mice after about 15 months of age. (+info)
Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (8/47319)OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention. (+info)

Age Gap Rises in Economic Well-Being - ABC News
Illustration Works/Getty Images). The rich arent just getting richer, but wealthy older Americans are noticeably better-off than their counterparts from three decades ago in several areas like income, employment, home ownership and housing values.. It may be no surprise that older Americans are wealthier than younger ones. But a new study from Pew Research Center analyzed the economic well-being of current older and younger adults to those in the past and found that the age-based wealth gap skyrocketed 47:1 in 2009 compared to 10:1 in 1984.. In 2009, the median net worth of households headed by adults aged 65 and older was 42 percent more than the same age group in 1984. In contrast, the net worth of households headed by an adult under 35 in 2009 was 68 percent less than the same age group in 1984.. These age-based gaps widened significantly during the sour economy of recent years, but all key trends are several decades old, indicating that they are also linked to long-term demographic, social ...

Age groups and the measure of population aging
Downloadable! This paper proposes the use of optimal grouping methods for determining the various age groups within a population. The cutoff ages for these groups, such as the age from which an individual is considered to be an older person, are then endogenous variables that depend on the entire population age distribution at any given moment. This method is first applied to the age distribution of the United States and subsequently to a group of 12 industrialized countries. The cutoff ages as well as the main indicators of aging are calculated.

Physician age and outcomes in elderly patients in hospital in the US | Hacker News
Probably because when treating it as continuous they only look for linear regression.. When categorizing in buckets, they probably do an ANOVA. This technique posits that the average does vary per category exactly as measured, and asks the question: If I tell you the category, how much is the variance of your data reduced? If the variance falls a lot (relatively to what it was), it means theres a statistically significant effect between the category and your variable.. And, in their defense, they cant really go fishing for different continuous relationships once they have the data, as thatd reduce their statistical power.. Of interest too is the number of adjustable parameters of the model:. If instead of four age categories you use, say, four hundred, you end up splitting each doctor into one category. The predictive power of that model is greatest, with very good statistical significance, but you have achieved no insight at all.. Similarly when taking age as continuous; if instead of a ...
Survivorship bias in the ICU - Critical Concepts
When a very old patient is admitted to the ICU, we note that age is a risk factor for poor outcomes from virtually every disease. However, reaching an advanced age also says something about the characteristics of the patient, which we may forget.. It is a truism that upon reaching middle age or thereabouts, most patients stop behaving like their calendar age, medically speaking, and start to instead resemble their state of health. There are 50-year-olds who look 100, and 90-year-olds who look 70. We understand this, and when we admit a 60-year-old man with chronic diseases of multiple organs, we acknowledge they have nothing in common with a person of the same age who still runs marathons. Indeed, most of those comorbid individuals do not survive to extreme old age; there are not many 90-year-olds with uncontrolled diabetes, CHF, renal failure, and so on.. Consider the consequences of this. In many ways, very elderly patients (over 85, say-certainly in their 90s and above) are the healthiest ...

Age-specific differences in the relationship between oral contraceptive use and breast cancer. - Oxford Cancer Epidemiology...
BACKGROUND: Nearly all studies have suggested that the use of oral contraceptives (OC) is not associated with the aggregate risk of breast cancer diagnosed in women aged 20-54 years. Because of age-specific differences in the breast cancer-parity relationship and because of age-specific differences in other breast cancer risk factors, the Centers for Disease Control reexamined data from the Cancer and Steroid Hormone Study (CASH) to assess whether OC use has different effects on the risk of breast cancer at different ages of diagnosis. METHODS: This population-based case-control study was designed to examine the relationship between the use of OC and the risk of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer. CASH was conducted in eight geographic areas in the United States during 1980-1982. All participants were interviewed at home with a pretested standardized questionnaire including a calendar of life events and a photograph book of all pills marketed in the United States. RESULTS: We found that the

Frontiers | Age-Based Differences in Strategy Use in Choice Tasks | Neuroscience
We incorporated behavioral and computational modeling techniques to examine age-based differences in strategy use in two four-choice decision-making tasks. Healthy older (aged 60-82 years) and younger adults (aged 18-23 years) performed one of two decision-making tasks that differed in the degree to which rewards for each option depended on the choices made on previous trials. In the choice-independent task rewards for each choice were not affected by the sequence of previous choices that had been made. In contrast, in the choice-dependent task rewards for each option were based on how often each option had been chosen in the past. We compared the fits of a model that assumes the use of a win-stay-lose-shift (WSLS) heuristic to make decisions, to the fits of a reinforcement-learning (RL) model that compared expected reward values for each option to make decisions. Younger adults were best fit by the RL model, while older adults showed significantly more evidence of being best fit by the WSLS heuristic

Age influences inflammatory responses, hemodynamics, and cardiac prote by H. M. Linge, J. Y. Lee et al.
Background: Acute lung injury (ALI) is a significant source of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Age is a major determinant of clinical outcome in ALI. The increased ALI-associated mortality in the older population suggests that there are age-dependent alterations in the responses to pulmonary challenge. The objective of this observational study was to evaluate age-dependent differences in the acute (within 6 hours) immunological and physiological responses of the heart and lung, to pulmonary challenge, that could result in increased severity. Methods: Male C57Bl/6 mice (young: 2-3 months, old: 18-20 months) were challenged intratracheally with cell wall components from Gram-positive bacteria (lipoteichoic acid and peptidoglycan). After 6 hours, both biochemical and physiological consequences of the challenge were assessed. Alveolar infiltration of inflammatory cells and protein, airspace and blood cytokines, cardiac function and myocardial proteasome activity were determined. Results:
Modern trends in mandatory examination of children at specific ages -- Singapores Miss Universe Forum
As said, these ordeal have a long history back to the 1950es. Certain communities or schools around the World seem to be selected to perform them on children and teens, and it all seems to be intertatioally coordinated. The purpose seems to be a thorrough surveillance of all aspects of the health and psychology of kids around the world. I grew up in Norway in Oslo in the 1960es and some schools in Oslo were participating in these ordeal, which I found rather pecular but did not think very much about it before many years later. Then I decided to find out if this still happens, and if it happens around the wurld, by inviting people to tell own stories. Mostly i use standardized polls, but with the opportunity for every respondents to tell with their own words ...
Passive storage versus active processing in working memory: Evidence from age-related variations in performance - Open...
In a passive task participants recall material in the format in which it was presented, whereas in an active task they transform or manipulate the material. Experiment 1 describes an active visuo-spatial task that is vulnerable to the effects of ageing, and Experiment 2 shows that it is more sensitive to the effects of ageing than a passive task carried out concurrently using the same material. In Experiment 3, similar results were obtained using active and passive verbal tasks carried out concurrently using the same material. Finally, these findings were replicated in Experiment 4 using active and passive verbal and visuo-spatial tasks that were carried out in separate experimental conditions. It is concluded that effects of ageing show an earlier onset in tasks requiring active processing than in tasks requiring the passive storage of information.. ...
Relationship of age, gender, hypertension history, and vulnerability perception with physical exercise compliance in elderly |...
Discussion. The results showed that the most hypertension occurred at the age of 60-69 years, followed by elderly aged 70 years with a percentage of 32.4%. This age belongs to the elderly group, and the elderly group is at high risk. The age factor is one of the factors that play an important role in the incidence of hypertension. The older the people, the more changes in physical and biological. Changes that occur are part of the vulnerability, which becomes one of the predisposing factors for health status that becomes worse.8 The findings showed that many elderly people aged 60-69 years do an unbalanced lifestyle and still consume a lot of fat intake such as fried foods. Most of the elderly in the health center area highlighted that consuming fried foods have become a habit that cannot be avoided. Elderly have a habit of consuming excess fat, fast food, fatty foods and high cholesterol.9. Women have the largest proportion with the incidence of hypertension as many as 79 people (73.1%). This ...
Although one person may be diagnosed with more than one tumour, their death is only counted once in these statistics. The ONS rules around coding death certificates are used to determine which tumour is the cause of death in these cases. Some patients with cancer die for reasons not related to their cancer. These are not included in the mortality statistics.. Standardised rates are standardised according to an approximate 2013 European Standard Population. The five year age bands in the ESP are grouped into the age bands published on this tool to make a standard population for these age bands. Data presented are taken from the ONS Mortality Extract provided to the National Cancer Registration Service aligned with DR 2017.. ...
Frontiers | Lifespan Changes in Global and Selective Stopping and Performance Adjustments | Psychology
This study examined stopping and performance adjustments in four age groups (M ages: 8, 12, 21, and 76 years). All participants performed on three tasks, a standard two-choice task and the same task in which stop-signal trials were inserted requiring either the suppression of the response activated by the choice stimulus (global stop task) or the suppression of the response when one stop signal was presented but not when the other stop signal occurred (selective stop task). The results showed that global stopping was faster than selective stopping in all age groups. Global stopping matured more rapidly than selective stopping. The developmental gain in stopping was considerably more pronounced compared to the loss observed during senescence. All age groups slowed the response on trials without a stop signal in the stop task compared to trials in the choice task, the elderly in particular. In addition, all age groups slowed on trials following stop-signal trials, except the elderly who did not slow
Aging and the rate of visual information processing - Strathprints
Multiple methods exist for measuring how age influences the rate of visual information processing. The most advanced methods model the processing dynamics in a task in order to estimate processing rates independently of other factors that might be influenced by age, such as overall performance level and the time at which processing onsets. However, such modeling techniques have produced mixed evidence for age effects. Using a time-accuracy function (TAF) analysis, Kliegl, Mayr, and Krampe (1994) showed clear evidence for age effects on processing rate. In contrast, using the diffusion model to examine the dynamics of decision processes, Ratcliff and colleagues (e.g., Ratcliff, Thapar, & McKoon, 2006) found no evidence for age effects on processing rate across a range of tasks. Examination of these studies suggests that the number of display stimuli might account for the different findings. In three experiments we measured the precision of younger and older adults representations of target ...

The increasing incidence of and interest in hepatitis in the last decade is clearly discernible from the constantly rising volume of literature on the subject. In the past several years we have encountered numerous cases of jaundice in various age groups in which the correct diagnosis became apparent after a brief survey, including various laboratory procedures in conjunction with a short period of clinical observation. In several cases, however, the history and the laboratory studies left the clinical picture sufficiently confused as to necessitate more involved diagnostic procedures, such as cholangiography, liver biopsy and even exploratory laparotomy..

Policy for social survey microdata - Office for National Statistics
The low number of incorrect identifications, combined with the absence of any correct ones probably means that the risk in the dataset is low enough to be considered suitable for open data. However, it might even be deemed too cautious with disclosure control being applied too strictly. The ideal situation is to have a fair number of incorrect identifications and very few (not necessarily nil) correct identifications. For this example it was decided to reattempt intruder testing, but to use eight age bands instead of four age bands; results are shown in Table A5.. The question is then one of risk appetite. The level of risk that one would normally take with an open dataset (and therefore to be publicly available) is usually very low. Always remember that it would be perfectly legal for an intruder or researcher to attempt to identify an individual and to claim to have made a correct identification. It is therefore important for a data provider to have a strategy in place for that instance. ...

The awful cult of the talentless hipster has taken over | MetaFilter
With regard to the generational thing, Im not convinced there are any meaningful boundaries beyond 1965 or so. I mean, look at the graph on this page. It spikes around 1947, then stays high for ten years, then drops down to a low-lying plateau starting at about 1975 or so. From then on, its basically flat. I think this need to categorize people into specific age groups beyond that point is just trying to fit the facts into a preconceived idea of there being distinct generations, which seems unduly influenced by the boomers. If you come from a well-defined age cohort, you might assume there will always be well-defined age cohorts. To me, there are two main groups: boomers and post-boomers. And the only reason I would draw a distinction between those two groups is the outsize role the former has had on the economy, culture, and the media. Which has been frustrating to have to grow up with, but it makes me realize that someday my generation (loosely defined as those born between 1965 and 2000) ...
Meta-analysis can be used to examine differences in treatment effects across trials; however, the fact that randomised trials are included in meta-analyses does not mean that comparisons between trials are also randomised comparisons. Meta-analytic subgroup analyses, like subgroup analyses within trials, are prone to bias and need to be interpreted with caution. A more reliable way of assessing differences in treatment effects is to relate outcome to some underlying patient characteristic on a continuous, or ordered, scale. The underlying level of risk is a key variable which is often related to a given treatment effect, with patients at higher risk receiving more benefit then low risk patients. Individual patient data, rather than published summary statistics, are often required for meaningful subgroup analyses. ...

Puberty - Family Planning Victoria
Young people may want more independence but not want to give up the support of their parents/carers just yet. This can mean sometimes feeling like an adult and sometimes feeling like a child. It may also mean they sometimes act impulsively and take risks. Parents/carers may worry when their child wants to go out on their own and act independently, because they are concerned about their safety and wellbeing. Adults may know first-hand or have heard of situations where young people have been taken advantage of. They are also probably aware of the risks some young people take and may have even taken these same risks themselves when they were growing up. This can lead to arguments between parents/carers who want to keep their child safe and the young person who wants independence. Young people and their parents/carers should try to sit down and work through these issues together. It is important for parents/carers to communicate openly with their child and to make sure their child knows they can ...

Will New gTLDs Render Domain Age Factor Meaningless? - TLdJournal.com
Domain age factor is something which is often taken into consideration whenever a domainer or a business owner decides to buy a particular name. The old is gold concept is very well applied to domain names. An aged domain is favored by SEOs as well as by search engines. This is the reason why aged good domain names sell for a good price in the aftermarket. Very few businesses are out there which are built on new domains - often, the aged domains are first considered for development.. Now, with the introduction of new gTLDs the domain space is going to expand massively. In this scenario, will the domain age factor lose its significance is a question which may be relative to think at this moment.. The new gTLDs will have no age upon their introduction and whoever may build their businesses around it is going to sacrifice the age factor along with many other factors such as dot com, traffic, etc. If this practice succeeds a new trend may emerge in which SEOs and even search engines will start to ...

6105.0 - Australian Labour Market Statistics, Oct 2010
For men working 1-15 hours per week, those aged 15-24 comprised the the largest share, with on average, more than 45%, with a peak of around 59% in May 1990. The distribution of the other employed men working 1-15 hours is spread relatively evenly across the other age groups, and has been relatively constant over the past 32 years (although there was an increase in the share of those aged 55 and over in the last ten years: from around 16% in 2000 to approximately 23% in 2010). Unlike men, for women there is no one particular age group which overwhelmingly contributes to those working 1-15 hours. The largest group are those aged 15-24, which has increased from 23% in February 1978 to 29% in July 2010. The proportion of employed women 55 and over working 1-15 hours per week has shown a similar pattern to men in the same age group, increasing steadily since 1995, from around 9% to approximately 17 ...
GLOBAL AGE DISTRIBUTION OF GRANITIC PEGMATITES | The Canadian Mineralogist | GeoScienceWorld
An updated global compilation of 377 new and previously published ages indicates that granitic pegmatites range in age from Mesoarchean to Neogene and have a semi-periodic age distribution. Undivided granitic pegmatites show twelve age maxima: 2913, 2687, 2501, 1853, 1379, 1174, 988, 525, 483, 391, 319, and 72 Ma. These peaks correspond broadly with various proxy records of supercontinent assembly, including the age distributions of granites, detrital zircon grains, and passive margins. Lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites have a similar age distribution to the undivided granitic pegmatites, with maxima at 2638, 1800, 962, 529, 485, 371, 309, and 274 Ma. Lithium and Ta resources in LCT pegmatites are concentrated in the Archean and Phanerozoic. While there are some Li resources from the Proterozoic, the dominantly bimodal distribution of resources is particularly evident for Ta. This distribution is similar to that of orogenic gold deposits, and has been interpreted to reflect the ...

Targeted therapy is a cancer treatment that works by targeting specific genes or proteins to help stop cancer from growing and spreading. These genes and proteins are found in cancer cells or in cells related to cancer growth, like blood vessels. It may seem simple to use a drug that works specifically to your type of cancer, but targeted therapy is very complex. It is important to remember that a tumor may not always respond to a drug - each person and each tumor is different. Most people may also need surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or hormone therapy. Researchers are always in the process of developing more targeted drugs and West Cancer Center is at the forefront of research, targeted therapies, and clinical trials.. ...
