‘New’ Cancer Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer

by , under Conventional Treatments, Pancreatic Cancer, The Cancer Industry

Once again, we have a report of a ‘new’ treatment for pancreatic cancer. In case you didn’t know, pancreatic cancer is reported to be one of the most deadly cancers that one can contract. It is very difficult to diagnose in the early stages because there are no symptoms, and even when they do appear, they are often mistaken for other health problems. To date, there appears to be no reliable diagnostic test to detect it early. It is claimed that the cause of pancreatic cancer is unknown, but the authorities do readily admit that only a small percentage of cases are the result of heredity. They say that it is rare to catch pancreatic cancer in the early stages.

After reviewing an article on this ‘new’ treatment for pancreatic cancer, I couldn’t help analyzing it. In short, this ‘new’ treatment utilizes a ‘pancreatic cancer-specific radio-labeled antibody combined with low-dose gemcitabine chemotherapy’. In plain English, this means that an antibody that has an affinity for pancreatic cancer has a radioactive nuclide chemically attached to it. The antibody then has a higher tendency to attach to the pancreatic cancer cells, and kill them with the radioactivity. To enhance the effect, the gemcitabine is given in a ‘low-dose’ chemotherapy treatment.

As far as the monoclonal antibodies are concerned, there is always a level of nonspecific binding of antibodies to receptor sites. I haven’t researched the level in this study, but I do know this. This just means that some of the radioactively-labeled antibodies will bind to non-cancerous cells throughout the body.  FYI, there is no known safe level of radiation exposure.

They report that this method has resulted in about 68% of test subjects experiencing a significant reduction in tumor size. They also report that test subjects had a longer survival rates, reduced pain, and better quality-of-life because of a reduction in side effects when compared to other more conventional cancer treatment methods.

I almost lost it because I thought this was a news article, but it is actually a press release from a producer of monoclonal antibodies, a company called Immunomedics Inc. You can probably already sense that I had a problem with the article. It is understandable that this company would seek to promote this therapy because that is how they make money. Their profits are based on the patents for complex molecules. They cannot patent natural molecules, so that precludes them from earning profits on them. Hence, natural treatments are routinely ignored by Big Pharma.

The major problem I have with these substances is that they are poisons. Gemcitabine was the replacement for fluorouracil as a treatment for pancreatic cancer. Fluorouracil is basically a DNA poison. This means that when it is administered to a patient, it inhibits the synthesis of thymidine in DNA, which means that the cell that is trying to replicate will die. Gemcitabine, which is a DNA poison that replaces cytidine in DNA synthesis, replaced fluorouracil as a treatment about 12 years ago. Both of these treatments are termed antimetabolites because they inhibit the use or production of chemicals that are a part of normal cellular metabolism.

The theory is that faster replicating cells (such as cancer cells) will be more affected than healthy body cells. But the reality is that all cells in the body replicate, so it is just a ‘crap shoot’ to see if cancer cells are killed off faster than body cells.  It just doesn’t make sense to me to use poisons as treatments for medical ailments. There HAS to be a better way!

    I usually agree with your article content, but in this case I am sorry to say that I do not share your views.

    That’s ok. We don’t have to agree on everything. But I do know that using poison for medicine is not a long-term strategy for enduring health.

    The bottom line is that each person has to make their own decisions in reference to the medical treatments that they accept. My goal is to give laypeople a perspective that they may not have considered or been exposed to by the Medical Establishment. In the same way that the Democrats and Republicans do not define all possible political orientations (even though it is portrayed as your only two choices), there are other treatment options that exist outside of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

    So I’m not looking for worshipers. I’m just seeking to inform people looking for hope and an alternative to ‘poison as medicine’ that there is another way, even if the Medical Establishment will not acknowledge that alternatives exist. Understand that many people, once they have undergone all the pain and damage that conventional cancer treatments have to offer, have been sent home to ‘get their affairs in order’. A number of these people then find out that there was another way to fight cancer. Unfortunately, most find out too late.

    If one just wants to follow whatever the doctor tells them to do, that’s their choice, and this information is not for them. This information is for the patient that is seeking to make his own informed treatment decision, and is not afraid to go outside the information given by the Medical Establishment.

  3. Blood test for pancreatic cancer

    Pancreatic Cancer is increasing day by day. It is in the fourth position in most prevalant type of cancer. So it is very important to detect it in early stages. For that, scientists have found a new way of blood test which could detect Pancreatic Cancer in early stage. That will be very helpful. Detecting any type of cancer is early stages, helps a lot.

    Not bad article, but I really miss that you didn’t express your opinion, but ok you just have different approach

    It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it’s always possible to find something new. 🙂

    I think that this approach is wrong. It may lead to short-term success, but it will invariably lead to long-term failure. It is still radiation. Radiation is not good for the body. It doesn’t strengthen the body. It is still based on putting poison into the patient. In the same way that ‘there is no right way to do the wrong thing’, there is no lasting benefit to be gained from putting poison into the patient. This is due to an incorrect medical paradigm. Poison is being given to patients because it does not cure the disease, and also leads to side effects that can also be treated with more procedures and pharmaceutical drugs.

    Remember that a patient cured is a customer lost. This may sound cruel, crude and unfeeling, but a corporation only cares about profits, not about the impact on real people. The human implications of the effect of the emphasis on profits is merely seen as a ‘cost of doing business’. This is how the entire Medical Establishment is structured. This is a result of the way the business environment has been built. Profits and shareholder interest are the primary concern. This is why there is blatant rejection of any treatment modality that does not fit with the present medical paradigm. The average person, as well as the average medical professional, has been indoctrinated to embrace and have unquestioned faith and belief in the established medical paradigm. To question it is to invite professional ostracism. I can freely question it because my income is not based on me being beholden to the medical establishment. The average medical professional does not have this freedom of action if he/she wants to keep earning a living in this industry.
