Clay Siegall leads pharmaceutical research industry to find cure for cancer

For most of human history, a diagnosis of cancer was generally a death sentence. Although some patients with some types of cancers were able to live for a number of years, in most cases, a cancer diagnosis meant that the patient had little more than a few months to live. Even with the advent of modern surgical techniques, the survival rates for most types of cancers were dismal.

That did not begin to significantly change until the 1930s and 40s, when both radiation and primitive chemotherapies began coming on the market as ways to effectively treat various types of cancer. It was also in this period when surgical excision techniques began to come into their own as truly effective means of curing certain types of non-metastatic cancers in the earliest stages.

However, these treatments came with trade-offs. While some forms of cancer, such as breast cancer, melanoma and certain types of intestinal cancers, saw dramatic improvements in survivability, others were barely touched by the new treatments. In fact, between about 1950 and 1990, the overall improvement and survivability of most types of cancers was modest at best.

But the worst aspect of these treatments was the brutality that most engendered. Many of the surgeries to remove cancerous growths involved large-scale excisions and even amputations. The other treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, often involved bringing the patient to near-death in order to rid the body of fast reproducing cancer cells. The side effects of all these treatments were often horrific, with patients routinely ending up scarred for life and oftentimes having severe disabilities as a result of the treatments.

But one man decided to change all of this. Clay Siegall, co-founder of Seattle Genetics, has developed a new model of cancer treatment. He’s invented a new class of drugs called antibody drug conjugates. Using the body’s own immune response against cancer cells, an antibody drug conjugate is able to bind a highly toxic chemical to an antibody, only releasing the cytotoxin upon contact with the malignant cell.

This has radically transformed cancer treatment and promises to someday deliver a cure.

Dr. Jennifer Walden proves to be among Cosmetic Surgeries greatest

Any sort of individual hoping to break into the medical profession should be defined by one particular characteristic; compassion. The ability to feel the weight of their work on their shoulders, and put all of themselves into their actions is something any doctor should be able claim themselves capable of. Doctor Jennifer Walden, an accomplished cosmetic surgeon, may as well use that description as her calling card. Compassionate, accomplished, and supremely confident, Walden is in a league of her own.

Walden is distinguished in another way entirely as well- she’s one of few women working and succeeding in a male dominated field. While her gender may not seem like much of a boon in her field, further examination proves otherwise. The vast majority of Walden’s patients are women, meaning Walden can approach requests and surgeries with a perceptive a male doctor couldn’t. Walden is able to understand why women who come to see her want the surgery they’re requesting. She understands the tole time can take on a woman’s body, and the mark they can leave on their self worth. Because of this empathy, Walden is approachable and comforting in ways few cosmetic surgeons can hope to be. Walden on YouTube.

As a fully credited private practitioner, Walden has gotten to where she has all on the merit of her work. Walden has practiced for seven and a half years in New York, and continues her practice today in Austin. It’s incredibly telling that even in a place where one would assume there would be less work, business hasn’t slowed a bit for Walden. Quality enjoys company, it would seem.

Dr Jennifer Walden Reviews is an exceptional surgeon, businesswoman, and medical professional, and she does all of that whilst being a single mother in a profession dominated by the opposite sex. Walden is nothing if not distinguished, and a worthy choice for anyone looking for cosmetic surgery.

How Our Jail Uses Securus Technologies to Combat Crime

It might come as a surprise to many that there is serious crimes taking place inside the prison every day. The thing that you have to realize is that these inmates are trapped inside a cell for the entire day, and they have nothing but time on their hands and are always on the hunt for a way to exploit the system. My job as a corrections officer is to try and limit the crimes, and we do that in a number of ways.


To stop the flow of illegal drugs and weapons into the jail, me and my fellow officers set up screening sections at the visitor center to catch anyone trying to get drugs into the prison. If we are able to stop the flow into the jail, then we can lessen the chances of it getting into the inmate’s cells and leading to a number of problems down the road.


We also monitor the calls the inmates are making to try and get the items before they even get into the jail. Securus Technologies installed their latest inmate call system and it has already had incredible results. This company is headed by CEO Richard Smith, and he has made the company objective to make our world a safer place to live. We believe that by stopping the contraband, we do make the jail safer for all.


Our first week after being trained to use the LBS software, we detected chatter from the inmates that pointed us to a number of issues. One call alerted us to an inmate talking about how he hides his drugs outside his cell so it doesn’t get pinned on him. We even listened in to calls about who is bringing drugs to the jail and quickly got in position to make an arrest before anything changed hands.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America: New Technology to Help Patients and Doctors

Cancer Treatment Centers of America consists of 5 national hospitals, and it is based out of Boca Raton in Florida. There are locations in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Georgia. Cancer Treatment Centers of America offers traditional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotheraphy, however, these all come with severe side effects.

The hospital recently teamed up with Allscripts and NantHealth and is implementing a solution for both doctors and patients to get real time data and information regarding cancer treatment options. The operating system is called NantOS and was developed with the input of of hundreds of oncologists. Because the system operates in real time, it is always up to date with the latest research and data, meaning it takes the guesswork out of the equation for the doctors who are devising a treatment plan and may be constantly inundated with new data.
The system develops a plan specific to each patient and is then able to show each patient the market cost, as well as supporting clinical data, comparisons between treatment options, lists possible side effects, and provides them with access to up to date guidelines on each treatment.
This system seeks to improve the patients’ quality of care, as well as offering transparency in treatment options to the patient. NantOS will make cancer treatment options more efficient and understandable for the patient while minimizing risk due to influx of information.
