Blog updates for November 2012

Nov 6, 2012. In Biochemical PSA Recurrence we added: Anti-Angiogenesis. As solid tumors require supporting blood vessels to grow many years ago Judah Folkman [papers] proposed that one way to combat cancer might be to prevent the growth of blood vessels. About a dozen drugs having this effect are already on the market for other cancers (breast, lung, colon, brain, and kidney) but none for prostate cancer. See [PMID: 20678204] for a review. In a [TED video] Dr. William Li speculates on the possibility that if applied early enough that simply eating foods known to inhibit angiogenesis might prevent cancer or recurrence. See the list of foods [here].
