Lori Mines was diagnosed with brain cancer two years ago.I didn’t even like want to know anything about it, because I just basically wanted to be focused on trying to get better.Even non-cancerous brain tumors can be deadly.If the interfere with portions of the brain responsible for vital bodily functions,treatment can include surgery, chemotherapy or radiation or a combination of treatments.Glioblastoma czar, the most common form of cancerous brain tumors and the five-year relative survival rate is under six percent.
两年前,Lori Mines被诊断患有脑癌。我甚至不想知道关于脑癌的任何消息,因为我就想努力使自己变得更好。即使非癌性脑瘤也可能夺人性命。如果给负责大脑重要机能的部分以干扰,那么可以采取的治疗方法包括手术、化疗、放射治疗或者不同治疗方案的组合。胶质母细胞瘤是最常见的癌性脑肿瘤,五年相对存活率低于百分之六。
That’s the type of tumor Mines has.I’m hoping that I will be here for longer. But I gloom, it’s like I’m realistic too.It’s glioblastoma, but I just keep fighting.Scientists at Duke Health found they can increase the survival rate for some patients by injecting a modified polio virus directly into the tumor.This is an example of targeted therapy.
Mines脑内就是有这种肿瘤。我希望能在这呆得久一点。我郁郁寡欢,这似乎才应该是现实。这是胶质母细胞瘤,但是我选择继续抗争。杜克健康的科学家们发现,他们可以通过将改良的脊髓灰质炎病毒直接注入肿瘤,来提高患者的生存率。这就是靶向治疗的一个例子。
Other researchers are trying to get the body’s own immune system to attack the tumors.We’re examining novel clinical trials, targeted therapies, immunotherapies, some of which look very promising right now.So there’s a lot of hope for this patient population.
其他研究人员则试图通过人体自身的免疫系统来对抗肿瘤。我们目前正在研究新型临床实验、靶向疗法和免疫疗法,其中一些看起来很有前景。因此,给这个患者群体带来很多希望。
Dr. Arnab Chakravarti led a study at the Ohio State Comprehensive Cancer Center.On the genetic makeup of gliomas, brain tumors that can be cancerous or benign.Mines was one of the participants.The researchers found they could more than double the life expectancy among patients who had a particular biomarker when treated with specific chemotherapy and radiation.It’s very important to personalize care for the individual patient and that’s why biomarkers prognostic and predictive biomarkers are so important.
Arnab Chakravarti博士在俄亥俄州综合癌症中心带领了一项研究。胶质瘤的基因组成,既可以是癌性的也可能是良性的脑肿瘤。Mines就是其中之一。研究人员发现,有些病患寿命可以提高一倍,即他们有特定生物标志物,并且接受特定化学疗法和放射治疗。为病患提供个性化的护理十分重要,这也是预后生物标志物和预测性生物标志物十分重要的原因。
Experts say testing genetic markers will become the standard for patients with malignant brain tumors.They’re also looking at targeted drug therapies as part of individualized treatment.The hope is that one day getting a diagnosis of brain cancer will no longer be a death sentence.
专家表示,测试遗传标记将成为判断病人是否有恶性肿瘤的标准。他们也在寻找针对性的药物疗法,来作为个性化治疗的一部分。希望有一天,诊断出脑癌不是死亡的宣判。
