: Has anybody heard of bioray light technology in treating cancer and if so where can I find more information. My mom was recently diagnosed with small cell lung cancer which has spread to her liver. She is undergoing aggressive chemo. There was recently a news article in the South Florida area about this treatment (wsvn channel 7 news) but i cannot seem to find more info. Any help appreciated. Thanx Robin
a better treatment for small cell would be zd0473 if she's failed a conventional treatment. this compound is a third generation platinum compound. cisplatin and carboplatin which initally work so well on small cell are in this same catagory. this new drug was developed so the cancer dosen't get resistant to it, like it does to the other drugs. its currently in level 2, which means saftey perimeters have already been established. someday if the money continues for the trials, this could replace the other drugs which work for only such a short time.
