Susie's Cause Announces Nationwide Health Festivals
Susie's Cause is excited to announce that our unique Health Festivals will expand this year to Baltimore, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and Indianapolis. This signature event brings lifesaving information to our underserved communities. We are grateful to Lilly Oncology for their tremendous support helping us extend this program across the country. See our Events page for dates and locations.
In a small study of 48 patients with colon and other cancers for whom standard therapies failed, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center say that mistakes in so-called mismatch repair genes, first identified by Johns Hopkins and other scientists two decades ago, may accurately predict who will respond to certain immunotherapy drugs known as PD-1 inhibitors. Such drugs aim to disarm systems developed by cancer cells to evade detection and destruction by immune system cells.
Cologuard is a noninvasive test for colon cancer screening that identifies altered DNA and/or blood in your stool, which is associated with the possibility of colon cancer or precancer. Approved by the FDA in August of 2014, Cologuard was developed by Exact Sciences, in collaboration with researchers at Mayo Clinic. In a study of 10,000 people of average risk for colon cancer, Cologuard found 92% of cancer. Cologuard does produce false-positive results. In the clinical study, 13% of people without cancer or precancer tested positive. Cologuard must be ordered by a physician, and any positive result should be discussed with your doctor and be followed by a diagnostic colonoscopy.
