Tracy Posted July 15, 2004 Share Posted July 15, 2004 Its been a long time since I have posted on this website. Alot has happened since then and I am back in search of wisdom. I recently read an article in a local paper, The Province July 4th/04, referring to a new treatment in Hong Kong. It's a drug called "Gendicine" and is "the world's first officially licensed "gene therapy" ". Clinical trials found it improved the survival rate for those with cancer of the neck and head and now doctors are extending it to people with lung and stomach cancer. Supposedly the drug is injected into the tumour and "it invades itself and commits suicide". My questions to you all are as follows: 1. Has anyone else heard of this and if so have any doctors out there recommended it? 2. How does one go about getting themselves on a list for treatment in a different country? Any advice of this would be great...thanks so much! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
