I'm sure they will keep it affordable and make only a reasonable profit. *cough bullshiat cough*

This is about the millionth cancer cure that shows promise in a dish or an animal model.

What if the doctor has only given you 5 days to live?

This is a novel approach, and if the protein being attacked is unique enough, I might be able to die of heart disease instead of pancreatic cancer like all my ancestors before me.

I'm hoping that since this is Cambridge University research it won't be turned into a £500,000 treatment.

it can wipe out the disease in less than six days.

And on the 7th day it rests?

Since it's Cambridge University, patients will probably have to do one of the following:

1. Join Footlights
2. Continue their public school dabbling in homosexuality
3. Spy for Russia

initially they had planned to freeze him until they found out the new iphone wouldn't be able to sustain the below zero temps.

jwa007: Jobs should have had himself frozen after all.


Not to go too far off topic, but I understand Jobs basically killed himself with a moronic diet and then turning to some kind of wholistic treatment instead of modern medicine which had found a way to cure his particular type of pancreatic cancer.

Wouldn't it be nice if they patented it, and agreed to allow genetic to be released for some crazy low amount of like 1% commission per treatment...

After just finding out that I have cancer, but a different type than this story, I'm glad that someone is out there working on this sort of thing instead of being someone shooting their mouth off, trying to be witty and all smart and crap in a open forum like, let's say for example, Fark.

Maybe, like the Monostat varieties, there'll be cheaper versions that just take longer.

Only if we can bring back Satoshi Kon as well.  That man was a genius orders of magnitude better than Miyazaki at both storytelling and animation.

Thanks,

The lump (on my neck) is getting larger, more tests to be done in the next weeks to assess the best course, and hopefully they can get it out before too much damage is done and it spreads over to other things.

My sister died within 3 months of discovering a lump (but again, a different type)... so my wife and family are a bit on edge... and well, of course so am I. Cancer(s) runs a lot in my relatives and (just about always) it's been quite deadly.

Of course, for a reasonable price of only $100,000...

If I had pancreatic cancer, I'd be perfectly happy to let my insurance company pay a butt-load of money to cure me.  $30k for a quick effective cure is a lot less than fighting the disease for 3 years before dying.

Yes, and this is why we have absurdly expensive healthcare in the U.S.

I've had cancer twice now (two different types, first was seminoma, then last year it was kidney)

All I can say is hang in there, keep your mind busy and FIGHT.

(And fark cancer)

They have to screen for a population of hundreds eligible cancer patients, and arrange travel/treatment/legal with them.

ikanreed: Yes, and this is why we have absurdly expensive healthcare in the U.S.


$30k would be cheap for cancer care in total today. A course of IMRT is usually in the $20-30k range all by itself, depending on number of fractions and the payer.

Chemo drugs can be wildly expensive by themselves and if used together with rad therapy will really run the costs up. And we haven't talked about surgery or transplants yet.

So, while $30k sounds like a rip-off for a short course drug therapy that theoretically leaves no residual disease, compared to our current treatment protocols it would be cost effective and have better outcomes.
