[CR-UK]Potential cancer drug DCA tested in early trials

There are many promising new treatments for cancer currently in development, funded by organisations across the globe – including Cancer Research UK. If anything, these new results show why research is so important in bringing safe and effective treatments to people with cancer – they don’t provide definitive answers, but they support further investigations which may yield benefits for patients in the future.

Since the other News post was so old, found this one which is more recent biggrin.gif
Second Ever News post!

Much better article. Well written, informative and comprehensive.

Cancer is a difficult disease to treat because, as was pointed out in the article and the "other" thread, it is actually a type of disease rather than an individual disease. It is good that some promising treatments are appearing, although of course it will take a while to test and perfect them.

I'm glad that there are a lot of dedicated people and groups, like CR-UK, out there who are looking for a cure. I hope they come up with something of course, and the sooner the better, but to rush in without knowing the full extent of a certain treatment can be disastrous, such as the whole thalidomide debacle.
Possibly offensive and OT rant (Click to show)
I hate what happens with some reporting, and also on OCN from time to time. Of course there is a conspiracy, every scientist involved in cancer research actually doesn't want to complete their life's work and collect that Nobel prize. They just want to keep their meagre funding going forever.

And yes, the drug companies make so much money pushing pills that they don't want to cure anything, so they get the government to cover it all up. This is even true in countries like the UK with nationalized health care where cancer treatment costs the government a fortune every year. They would not be interested in a cure and a huge health-care saving.

Oh, and mass media? Not interested in breaking the story of the decade for some reason and making money from people buying their products (newspapers / TV commercial time etc). Must be a cover up.

That otherwise right thinking and intelligent people can spout this stuff ruins my faith in humanity.
