Cancer Monthly is proud to announce that it now provides treatment results for Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Bladder Cancer. Cancer Monthly is the only centralized source of cancer treatment results. Founded more than seven years ago, Cancer Monthly now provides information on the actual performance for nearly 1,000 different treatments for Bladder, Brain (anaplastic astrocytoma and glioblastoma), Breast, Colon, Kidney, Liver, Lung (non small cell), Melanoma, Mesothelioma, Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Ovarian, Prostate, and Rectal Cancer.
For each individual treatment the data includes: actual survival rates, quality of life indicators, drug information, and more. “The purpose of the Cancer Monthly is to provide patients with better tools to have more effective discussions with their doctors,” explains Michael Horwin the President of Cancer Monthly. Most of the data focuses on cancers in the more advanced stages because in those situations time is at a premium and Cancer Monthly can help patients save research time.
Cancer Monthly has been used by several million patients and doctors over the last seven years. This internet database is free and easy to use. Visitors simply select the kind of cancer they are researching, the types of treatments they are interested in, and where they are located. Treatment types include: Alternative, Biologic therapy, Chemotherapy, Gene Therapy, Hormone, Immunotherapy, Radiation, and Surgery. The database then provides the various treatments that meet these requirements. The data is sorted by the highest survival rate but the user can also sort by hospital, country, date, and toxicity of the treatment. Once a treatment of interest is identified the user can print out an abstract describing the therapy and share it with their doctor. Users can also email the doctor responsible for the therapy if they would like to obtain further details. All of the data comes from the peer reviewed oncology literature – medical articles written by physicians and researchers.
“Cancer Monthly is just one time-saving tool to help patients perform research on cancer treatments,” says Horwin. “Because the data comes from the medical journals it can help patients make more informed treatment decisions with their doctors.”
