When my son developed cancer; Leukemia to be exact, I was devastated. Medical search and research was the norm for the next few years of my life. I needed to find a solution, a cure, a treatment; desperation was always a big part of this search.
This kind of cancer, Leukemia, is a blood disease of sorts and it attacks the bone marrow creating as I understood it, a Philadelphia chromosome. This chromosome seems to dominate the patient’s overall health and depletes energy causing all kinds of complications that a healthy body would never experience.
I constantly read and studied everything I could find out about Leukemia, and Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) and the available treatments. But it was very difficult to understand everything I read. Words like; angiogenesis, apoptosis, dysplasia, metastasis, even malignant all sounded Greek to me.
I never knew about the advent of MOA videos. Had I known about them the rapidity of my understanding would have been tenfold. Even three and four trips a year to the Moffitt Center in Tampa Florida, and speaking with oncologists there did little to increase my understanding.
Watching this video above made me finally understand what was going on in the body and what could have been going on, had a treatment such as Car T-cell therapy been developed and available when he was diagnosed. Unfortunately he didn’t survive past the age of 34, but treatments offered by companies like Novartis, seemed to sustain his life for over 19 years since diagnoses, which means, by cancer research standards, he beat the odds, which according to Cancer research standards, was a 5 year mortality rate.
More videos such as the one above created by Equisolve Studios ( https://equisolve.com/?utm_source=YT_...) could be beneficial not only to Big Pharma, Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies and the investors of drug development or drug development and delivery platforms, ,but also to the patients and their families, to get a clearer understanding of how certain diseases progress and how different treatments affect that progression.
