First made-in-Taiwan lung cancer drug could become first targeted EGFR therapy
The first made-in-Taiwan targeted drug aimed at treatment for lung cancermight soon be available to patients. The new therapy targets the epidermal growth factor receptor - EGFR - mutations of which cause a type of lung cancer that currently can only be treated with chemotherapy.The Ministry of Science and Technology along with the National Health Research Institutes say the drug could be available within five years.A new targeted oral drug for lung cancer has been unveiled by the Ministry of Science and Technology in conjunction with the National Health Research Institutes. DBPR112 could become a new option for lung cancer patients with EGFR mutations, which previously could only be treated with chemotherapy. The drug is starting its first round of clinical trials, and might be available in as little as five years from now.Hsu Tsu-anNHRI researcherExon-20 mutations comprise about 5% of lung cancer cases. There’s not yet a targeted medicine for this in use. So we hope we can become a focus-center for this kind of drug.Compared to previous generations of targeted drugs, the new DBPR112 is less toxic, and with less severe side effects, is considered safer. It’s also the first anti-lung cancer drug developed in Taiwan.Su Fong-chinDeputy Minister of Science and TechnologyWe’ve arranged for patents in five countries: America, China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan; and the patents have already been approved.If the drug goes on the market in the future, it will be a cheaper alternative for Taiwanese patients than drugs now widely in use around the world. The drug’s creators also believe that it could add US$200 million to the yearly global economy.

Learn about the stages and treatment options for lung cancer
New Delhi, Nov 28 (ANI): Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. There are two major types of lung cancers, Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC). Knowing which type you have is important because it affects your treatment options and your outlook. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, targeted treatments and immunotherapy alone or in combination are used to treat lung cancer patients. Use of individual treatment options would be based on the stage of cancer and symptoms. Surgery: Most stage 1 and stage 2 lung cancer patients are treated with surgery to remove the tumor if the patient is very fit. As most of the lung cancer patients are not very fit and suffer from poor lung and heart condition, up to 10% of patients only can undergo curative lung surgery. Radiation: Patients with early lung cancer, but not suitable for surgery (stage 1& 2), or advanced lung cancer (stage 3) are treated with radiation with the intention to cure. Sometimes both radiation and chemotherapy given together. Chemotherapy: For most advanced cancer patient chemotherapy is used to control the tumor growth. Chemotherapy generally has some side effects and is only given to fit patients. In some situations, chemotherapy is used after surgery to improve the cure rate. Targeted therapy: One of the most exciting developments in oncology field, many of these medicines are oral tablets which can be taken at home with minimum supervision. These medicines tend to have fewer side effects as compared to chemotherapy. Immunotherapy: This has recently emerged as a new treatment option. This class of drug seems to have even less side effects. Immune check point inhibitors (PD-L1) targeted drugs have already shown a promising role, and are likely to emerge as main therapy for lung cancers in future. Newer treatment options particularly targeted therapy and immunotherapy have changed the treatment paradigm in lung cancer and hold great promise. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ☛ Subscribe to our Youtube Channel - https://goo.gl/k1Aee1 ☛ Visit our Official website: https://www.aninews.in/ Enjoy and stay connected with us!! ☛ Like us: https://www.facebook.com/ANINEWS.IN ☛Follow us : https://twitter.com/ANI ☛ Circle us : https://goo.gl/QN5kXy ☛ Contact us : shrawankp@aniin.com

New Drug for Lung Cancer
It's being hailed as a breakthrough medicine; a twice-daily pill that targets the growth of a specific type of lung cancer. The FDA fast-tracked its approval. "I think it was very exciting because it's sort of a proof that these targeted therapies for cancers can be affective," says Dr. Lowell Hart, a hematologist/oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Dr. Lowell Hart has three patients on the drug, now named Xalkori. He saw the drug make a dramatic impact. "It was very impressive to me that these were sick patients who had had their cancer progress through chemotherapy no longer working on chemo, so we would expect them to not do very well and perhaps not live very long but have had very dramatic responses to the drug," says Dr. Hart. The drug only works on the 5-10% of lung cancers which have a specific gene knows as ALK. Many people with it are non-smokers who developed 'small lung cancer'. "All three of my patients that have this mutation are women and non-smokers," says Dr. Hart. The new drug blocks protein produced by the ALK gene. It's a targeted therapy, which researchers believe is the future of controlling or curing cancer. The FDA also approved a screening test. "I am personally checking everybody and I think you know my partners are in general checking everybody and the tests are now commercially available," says Dr. Hart. Xalkori comes with a high price tag, upwards of $100,000 a year, on par with traditional chemo. Drug maker Pfizer is expected to work with insurance companies to limit out of pocket expenses, important in making the drug available to those who need it. "I've seen that very few times in my career of over 25 years. I said this drug is the real thing," says Dr. Hart.

Lung cancer symptoms and treatment | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
What are the risk factors and symptoms of lung cancer? Thoracic oncologist Bruce Johnson, MD, describes warning signs and treatment options, including the role of genetic testing. Learn more about lung cancer treatment: http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Thoracic-Cancer-Treatment-Center.aspx Transcription: It turns out that about eighty-five percent of lung cancers in the United States, now, are related to cigarette smoking. Either in people who are current smokers, or have smoked in the past. The most common one is cough that doesn’t go away. Almost all of us get coughs, once in a while, that we get for a few days, or a week or two, but they typically go away. So, if it persists for longer than several weeks…The other one is shortness of breath. One of the things that lung cancer can do is it can block off airways, it can put fluid in your lungs, and it can make it more difficult for people to breathe. You can also get chest pain. That usually comes from lung cancers that grow up against your chest wall that cause the pain. The other one, and the one that you should seek medical attention for right away is coughing up blood. The most effective treatment for lung cancer, as nearly every other cancer, is being able to catch it early enough where you can do a surgical resection, or removing it with an operation. If it goes into the lymph nodes in the middle of the chest, then you use a different approach, and that is, you typically give chemotherapy drugs, either through the vein, or you take orally, with radiation therapy. Within the last decade, we’ve begun to find the specific genetic changes that cause the lung cancers, and also develop drugs directly aimed at those targets. One of the first ones that was discovered was, in part, discovered by investigators here at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and that’s called a mutation in the epidermal growth factor receptor. Instead of giving them chemotherapy, we can give them what we call a targeted agent (currently, are in the United States) and instead of being able to treat people for the three or four months that I talked about before, the people can go for a year or longer on the therapy. We actually have four different other changes, for which we’re doing investigational therapies to find out if we can match these up. And it’s our goal to expand this to make up about half of lung cancers in the next five to ten years. The most important thing you can do to avoid lung cancer is to never start smoking. And that’s a message we can’t repeat too many times.

What's the difference between non-small cell lung cancer & small cell lung cancer? | Norton Cancer
John T. Hamm, M.D., Medical Director of the Norton Cancer Institute Research Program, answers the question, what is the difference between non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer? One of the important differences in lung cancers, to break it down into two categories: there's what we call non-small cell lung cancer and there's small cell lung cancer and for thirty or forty years we've divided them that way and the reason is because small cell lung cancer grows very fast, divides very fast and surgery even for early disease, is generally not an option. It's already spread by the time the surgeon takes it out or about the time the patient recovers. So, they stopped doing surgery on small cell lung cancer a long time ago. On the other hand, small cell lung cancer responds very well to chemotherapy. It shrinks very quickly and we get dramatic responses. If someone just has a limited a small cell lung cancer we can cure them with the combination chemotherapy and radiation. If they have extensive, meaning it's spread somewhere else (small cell lung cancer) we can't cure it but we can significantly prolong their survival by treatment as well. Non-small cell lung cancer, which is the more common one with eighty percent of lung cancers, is approached for surgically and then with either radiation or chemotherapy or chemotherapy alone. The other thing the past two or three years about non-small cell as we've been able to break it down even smaller groups. There's the adenocarcinomas and the squamous cell carcinomas and the others and some of those have genetic mutations and there are drugs for specific mutations For some of these non-small cell lung cancers, oral drugs you take by mouth at home, very few side effects and work very well to control the disease so it's important if you have a non-small-cell for your tumor to be tested for genetic mutations to see if any of those drugs are applicable for you.

Outsmarting Cancer - Targeted Drugs Fight Lung Cancer in North Shore Patient
When Wilmington resident Joan O'Beirne, 68, started experiencing shortness of breath during her daily activities, she had no idea what could be causing it or that she was about to become part of a pioneering research study. A widow with three grown children, O'Beirne has always been active and healthy, never smoking, playing tennis, and more recently watching her grandchildren every afternoon. When she noticed her shortness of breath, she consulted her primary care doctor who sent her to a lung specialist. Her early tests were inconclusive; she showed no sign of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Seeking an answer, O'Beirne's doctors ordered additional testing for cardiac disease and blood clots as well as a CT scan of her lungs. Finally, the CT showed scar tissue in the upper left lobe of her lung that a radiologist suspected might be a sign of cancer. A PET scan confirmed active cancer cells and she was sent to a lung surgeon for a biopsy to determine the extent of her cancer. After a surgeon advised that her tumor would require a surgical biopsy—a procedure that increased the possibility of spreading the cancer—O'Beirne sought a second opinion. She met with Massachusetts General Hospital and North Shore Medical Center thoracic surgeon and lung specialist, Dean Donahue, M.D. With O'Beirne as an active member of her own care team, she decided to first have Dr. Donahue and the interventional radiologist perform a needle biopsy and send the sample to pathology for staging. "With reassurance from Dr. Donahue, I felt completely comfortable with this approach," said O'Beirne. O'Beirne's biopsy confirmed Stage 2A cancer and Dr. Donahue then performed surgery to remove the upper lobe of her left lung. "After the surgery, I thought I would be fine," said O'Beirne. "I was surprised to learn that chemotherapy decreases the chance that my cancer will return from 50 percent to about 35 to 45 percent. So I opted for the treatment." She had chemotherapy at the Mass General/ North Shore Cancer Center, under the care of medical oncologist Rachel Rosovsky,M.D. In recent years, researchers have been able to pinpoint, with greater accuracy than ever before, the exact genetic abnormalities in certain cancers that turn healthy cells into cancerous ones. In 2004, physician researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center were the first to identify that a mutation in the epidermal growth-factor receptor (EGFR) was responsible for 10 percent of lung cancers —and 50 percent of those in non-smokers. Today, patients at the Mass General/ North Shore Cancer Center have their tumors screened for many types of cancer to determine their genotype, or genetic "fingerprint." This genetic intelligence is then used to match the appropriate "smart drug" that is specifically crafted to interrupt the cancer-causing mechanism, with minimal side effects, to the specific genetic mutation. O'Beirne is one of many patients who is benefitting from the comprehensive care and world-class research provided at the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center. Genotyping revealed that her cancer was caused by the EGFR mutation. She is now enrolled in a clinical research trial evaluating the effectiveness of an existing EGFR-mutation "smart drug" that had previously proven effective in shrinking tumors in patients with advanced metastatic cancer. In O'Beirne's trial, researchers are evaluating whether the drug—Tarceva— can prevent the recurrence of lung cancer in patients at an earlier stage of the disease. "I feel so fortunate to be part of this research. I only have to take one pill every day for two years," said O'Beirne. "I can't believe this little pill might be able to prevent my cancer from coming back." "I'm so grateful for the wonderful care I've received at the Mass General/ North Shore Cancer Center," said O'Beirne. "We're so lucky to have access to such amazing surgeons and cutting-edge treatments and research so close to home."

It's Michigan State University and they are doing incredible work on breast cancer patients and reflexology. This is their second grant and it's really astonishing work. So just research it if you like. Branch Reflexology. Barbara Bower. There's some wonderful people doing that. So it's out there. With cancer, it really depends on the person you're with. If they have cancer, it's really important that you're communicating with them the whole time. If they're undergoing some kind of chemotherapy, they might be really, really sensitive in their feet. So you might want to focus more on relaxation techniques. So we'll start with those. Some of the ones you can use might be the lung press for example. With the lung press you're going to go ahead and make a fist and you're going to with your thumb go ahead and insert it there. And then this hand will support the foot. So this part of the hand will be on the ball of their foot. So we bring it right there and we're just going to support with these fingers. Then to do the lung press we go ahead and press forward and then we kind of wave their foot towards us back. And we go front and back. We're going to do this bilaterally. So it means we're going to be doing it on both feet. We could do it the other direction too. You'll do the other foot as well. Some of the other things you could do could be the metatarsal mover. Just with your thumbs moving the metatarsal heads ever so gently. Again it's really important sometimes the just gentlest of touch for someone who's going through cancer is really, really special. So I encourage you to look into how to be present with your friend or family member and even just holding the feet can be really valuable. You can also work on the foot, in general, as a whole. So you could do all the reflexology techniques. You could do the thumb walking, the finger walking, in particular for the entire body. So we can for instance to the whole arch or belly of the foot. You could do the thumb walking up. You're passing through all of these wonderful vital organ reflexes. Certainly get your maps and look at what you're passing through. You might want to give a little more or less attention to something depending on the kind of cancer your person has. In addition you also can do thumb walking on the heels. You could do it on the ball of the foot. The whole lymphatic system falls through here and across here. So certainly you could do everything, but the relaxation techniques tend to be very popular amongst cancer patients.

Roughly 50% of individuals with NSCLC who've never smoked are found to have this hereditary change. *EGFR T790M is a variety in the EGFR protein. *KRAS changes are included around 25 percent of the time. *ALK/EML4-ALK change is found in around 5 percent of individuals with NSCLC. It has a tendency to include more youthful individuals and nonsmokers, or light smokers with adenocarcinoma. Less basic hereditary transformations related with NSCLC include: BRAF. HER2 (ERBB2). *MEK. *MET. *RET. *ROS1. How do these transformations influence treatment?. There are various medications for NSCLC.

3 dead due to Hanmi Pharmaceutical's lung cancer drug
한미약품 올리타정, 8월에 임상 이미 중단... 사망 3명 As Korean financial authorities look into a possible insider trading scandal involving Korea's Hanmi Pharmaceutical... the drug company was once again in the hotseat today along with the nation's health authorities. Oh Jung-hee has the details. Lawmakers in the National Assembly Friday questioned whether Korea's leading drugmaker Hanmi Pharmaceutical deliberately concealed the side effects of its lung cancer drug,... and whether the health authorities are covering for the company. Hanmi Pharmaceutical had alerted the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety in early April... that all patients participating in clinical trials for the drug Olita had contracted a life-threatening skin condition. In August, the company halted trials. The Health and Welfare Committee pointed out that while the drug safety ministry had said last month that just three people had had such a reaction to the drug and just one person died... it turned out that in fact 3 people had died, and 29 suffered serious side effects. The committee further questioned the drug safety ministry's decision to ease regulations on drugmakers and allow companies to fast-track new medicines with fewer clinical trials. Lawmakers stressed the decision to loosen regulations was regrettable... and that it prioritizes the financial burdens of pharmaceutical companies over the people's health and safety. But experts say... Olita does patients more good than harm,... being a drug especially for lung cancer patients who have a tolerance to other treatments. "These patients have no alternative to these drugs for an effective cure or to prolong their lives. The drugs are completely different from those that general cancer patients would take." The controversy has deepened following a decision earlier this week by Korea's health authorities to keep the drug approved for sale... on the condition that patients are given full explanations about the possible side effects and agree to use it.
