    Unfortunately, extending progression free survival (or PFS as we call it in my world) is not the same victory as eradicating the disease. It's good news but thus far most developments in this area of medicine haven't led to disease reversal, rather arresting the progression for a short time.

    Cancer is regrettably a smart disease and difficult to treat because it is not one disease, rather a collection of different diseases driven by a variety of mutational cellular strategies to promote survival. The drugs we have seen emerge (many of which my company has tested through phases 2-4) are improvements over former treatment approaches, but still have a long way to go in treating the disease, especially those cases where cancer has metastasized to viscera and bone from primary cellular structures.

    Ill check the links later, but I'm afraid cure and cancer won't be too related for a while. The intricacy of the disease is just to vast, with many people presenting to late in the progression.

    There was am old article that claimed to cure testicular cancer, and it was true. The regimen was used on Lance Armstrong, slightly modified to spare damage to his lungs that bleomycin can cause.

    No cure in the near future. There is to much profit to be made from cancer still.

    Unfortunately, that statement is overwhelmingly true.
