12 Comments 07 October 2014

This week Leslie Stahl and 60 minutes produced a terrific expose on cancer drug pricing, which can cost $250,000 to $500,000 per year, and how doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering set a huge precedent by standing up to the drug industry and refusing to prescribe a new overpriced drug, that didn't work any better.

This cartoon brilliantly explains the truth about cancer research

43 Comments 25 September 2013

This comic strip perfectly illustrates the fact that despite the industry propaganda claiming "We're one step closer to the cure", many cancer researchers freely admit that there will never be a pharmaceutical cure for cancer. They aren't even close. But they're getting paid to keep looking for one, so they keep looking. Click the post to read the whole thing.

Study: 1/3 of chemo is used off-label without FDA approval

16 Comments 22 February 2013

When a chemotherapy drug is approved for cancer treatment by the FDA, it is approved to treat a specific type of cancer. And some drugs are FDA approved for use on multiple types of cancer.

Researchers spin their results

13 Comments 11 January 2013

The results of breast cancer drug trials are routinely ‘spun’ to make the treatments appear more beneficial than they actually are, doctors claim today.

Study: Are cancer patients’ hopes for chemo too high?

28 Comments 29 October 2012

(Reuters) At least two thirds of people with advanced cancer believed the chemotherapy they were receiving might cure them, even though the treatment was only being given to buy some time or make them comfortable, according to a U.S. survey. Researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that 69 percent of patients who were terminally ill with lung cancer, and 81 percent with fatal colorectal cancer, did not understand that their chemotherapy was not at all likely to eliminate their tumors. "Their expectations are way out of line with reality," said lead researcher Deborah Schrag of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institution in Boston, speaking to Reuters Health...
