A Clever New Strategy for Treating Cancer, Thanks to Darwin


Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

 Fascinating article on a new concept in treating cancer. Doesn't mention brain cancer but the same principle probably applies.

The thing that struck me though is the author danced around the obvious solution. He said there were doctors using the concept on their own patients and suggested that we need randomized controlled to prove it works. He missed the obvious solution - what is needed is that all cancer patients need to be tracked in an always on registry so that these "n of 1" trials are analyzed. If 1,000 doctors each try this on 5 patients and do not share the results, we just wasted 5,000 patients' experiences. If they were tracked in a registry, we would have the answer.
