      New drug therapies may not provide a cure for cancer yet but they do offer hope to patients suffering from the disease. “I tell this to many of my patients, even if we don’t have a cure for them now, we hope to be able to control the growth of the cancer for sometimes months and sometimes many years,” says Dr. Lowell Hart hematologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Dr. Hart is conducting local clinical trials looking for drugs that target the growth of various cancers. Much excitement surrounds ‘personalized therapies’. “Trying to look ahead of time at the patient’s cancer and try to figure out before they go on the drugs if this particular pathway or another pathway is controlling the growth of the cancer so you can kind of hone in on the Achilles’ heel,” says Dr. Hart. Immunotherapy is another promising treatment. It uses the body’s own immune system to fight the cancer. “When you choose the right patient and you give them these drugs you can have phenomenal responses. You can put patients in remission and in many cases you can maintain that remission because now you’re really using the patient’s own immune system to control the disease,” says Dr. Frank Rodriguez oncologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Immunotherapy drugs are approved for breast, prostate and melanoma cancers. Their results are promising. “The body always recognizes cancer cells, however, once a tumor gets beyond a certain point, it finds the way to escape the immune system. These drugs, what they do is basically unmask those tumors, they allow the immune system to find these tumors and to attack it,” says Dr. Rodriguez. Targeted growth therapies are being tested for head and neck cancers along with melanoma, breast, colon and lung cancers. “That’s where the field is moving and over the next decade I’m sure we will get closer and closer to being able to do that for every patient,” says Dr. Hart. Still in their infancy, these drug therapies may someday be the heavy weight in the fight against cancer.

                  Modern medicine is constantly advancing quality care, but there’s something to be said for ancient Chinese practices. The Regional Cancer Center is interested in integrative medicine and hopes to inject some holistic pain relief to their cancer patients. In a building devoted to modern medicine and high tech healing, there is room enough for ancient Chinese practices. “There’s over 300 points in the body and each one has its own use...” Leigh Reynolds puts her needles to work. “The needles are really tiny and most of the time you don’t feel anything, it may feel like a little electrical tingle, but anything you feel is only lasts a split second and then its gone. The needles stay in for about 20 minutes and most people find it pretty relaxing,” says Reynolds, an acupuncturist with Lee Memorial Health System. People who get acupuncture here are far from the typical client. The Regional Cancer Center delivers life-saving treatments every day, but it often comes with a price. Cancer patients can alleviate some of their side effects with a dose of holistic healing. “When patients are having radiation and chemotherapy, they have anxiety, they have stress, nausea, vomiting, they have dry mouth, they have lymphedema, neuropathy, and acupuncture does a fabulous job,” says Reynolds. Neuropathy is a common complaint. It’s the loss of sensation or tingling in parts of the body due to nerve damage. Reynolds inserts needles in the back and between the eyes for stress relief and if the problem is neuropathy, one between every finger and toe. “I’m a last resort. A lot of people will go any other way other than thinking about having needles put in, but once they come in and try it, they realize that it really isn’t that scary,” says Reynolds. East meets West in this building, as advanced treatments rid the body of cancer and age old techniques rid the body of pain.
