Abscopal Effect and Malignant Melanoma

[This one is a rare effect, but if they can just figure out how to trigger it consistently (research is ongoing) this would be a kickass weapon in the war against malignant melanoma and some other cancers.   A more general article on the abscopal effect can be found on Wikipedia, but here’s a quickie from Oncology Nurse Advisor.   –dr steve]

A recent melanoma case featuring the abscopal effect, in which local radiotherapy delivered to a single tumor results in the regression of metastatic cancer at a distance from the irradiated site, may lay the groundwork …

Measles and Multiple Myeloma

[Another interesting idea…if you know someone with refractory multiple myeloma, they may qualify for a clinical trial in vaccine therapy (take THAT, anti-vaxxers!)  –dr steve]

from cnn.com

A woman with an incurable cancer is now in remission, thanks, doctors say, to a highly concentrated dose of the measles virus.

For 10 years, Stacy Erholtz, 49, battled multiple myeloma, a deadly cancer of the blood. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic say she had received every type of chemotherapy drug available for her cancer and had undergone two stem cell transplants, only to relapse time …

Striking Results With T-Cell Immunotherapy in Cervical Cancer

[I used to say we were 100 years away from a more generalized approach to cancer therapy.  In the end, barring some unforeseen breakthrough, cancer “cures” will come from the realm of immunology.  The immune system is perfectly appointed to eradicate cancer cell by cell, molecule by molecule, but it only works if it actually recognizes the cancer as abnormal.  Turning on the immune system to recognize cancer cells as foreign is the purpose of a lot of research right now and this is the outcome of a small pilot study.  This makes me think the time horizon is …

Eat Fiber and Die – 1987

Ok, I recorded this in my little bedroom studio in 1987 with a Korg DSS-1 sampling synthesizer.  I was an idiot.  There was overwhelming response to this being played on my show (none of it positive, mind you) so I thought I’d post it here for your non-enjoyment.  Drive your significant other crazy with it, pretending to like it.

It’s titled “Eat Fiber and DIE” for no other reason than hipsters were (correctly) extolling the virtues of fiber at the time and I was an ass.  If you can’t understand it, the refrain is “Someone roll me a GREAT BIG ‘SPLEEF’, …

Recipe: Cheesy No Grain Breadsticks

I’m going to create a new category of NSNG recipes as I find and test them.   I tried this one SuperBowl Sunday and even my kids thought it was pretty good.  It ends up with a soft, bread-y interior, with a crisp outside crust (made of cheese).  Dip it in marinara or eat it with NSNG chili, as we did.  I’ll be using this basic recipe for pizza crust in the future.

1 large head of cauliflower
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded, divided into 2 parts
1 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1-2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt

You can use more or …
