This 3 minute video outlines our strategic plan to substantially reduce cancer deaths.
We need a strategic plan to substantially reduce cancer deaths.
• To focus our efforts, identify gaps in knowledge.
• Goal is to reduce annual cancer deaths from current 600K to 100K by 2030.
• It might fail – that may be why others have not attempted this, but I think we can make important progress towards this goal.
Two main aspects – prevention, combinations of treatment.
• Prevention: American Code Against Cancer – not controversial, find ways to better promote these activities (see http://www.natpernick.com/AmericanCod… ).
• Combinations of Treatment: New thesis – If we have 20+ partially effective therapies for a specific type of cancer, then some some subset, in combination, should be substantially effective, see: http://www.natpernick.com/Combination...
• Behavior of whole is greater than sum of behavior of parts.
• Target: primary tumor, also microenvironment, systemic networks.
• Compiling a list, see http://natpernick.com/Pancreatic%20Ca…
• Then start clinical trials, or other means of testing (animal models, cell cultures, computer simulations).
