Colon cancer survivors whose diet is heavy in complex sugars and carbohydrate-rich foods are far more likely to have a recurrence of the disease than are patients who eat a better balance of foods, indicates a new study by researchers at Harvard-affiliated Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Colon Club board member Tom Bates celebrates opening of Cancer Survivors Park:
Bates knows the heartache of losing someone to cancer. "For me it was a mother who died when I was 10 of cancer and just recently, 2 years ago, my 29-year-old daughter passed away with colon cancer," he said.

Bates has found a way to always keep his daughter's memory alive through the park.

"At the top of it is a $250,000 dollar naming-right place called 'The Leap of Faith' and I'm honored to say that it will be named after my daughter Lindsey Bates Motley," Bates told 7News.

NCI: Antibody-linked drug shrinks various types of tumors in preclinical study

In a preclinical study, a Center for Cancer Research investigator-designed therapy using a drug attached to an antibody which can target blood vessels, connective tissue and other cells that infiltrate tumors—collectively known as the tumor stroma—led to shrinkage and even eradication of various types of tumors. The findings appeared in the Journal of Clinical Investigation on June 4, 2018.

...

Currently available ADCs typically target proteins found only in a subset of a single tumor type. By contrast, the stroma targeted by m825-MMAE is abundant in many tumor types, especially in pancreatic, colon and breast cancers, where it can comprise up to 90 percent of the tumor mass. Although m825-MMAE still requires testing in humans in clinical trials, the findings suggest it may have the potential to treat a broad swath of cancers.
