LLS newsletter I received announced an upcoming documentary based on the renown primer on cancer.
Found a blurb and a PBS link with trailer:
"Siemens proudly supports "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies,” a film based on The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and practicing oncologist Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD. This six-hour, three-part documentary chronicles the 4,000-year effort to understand, treat and ultimately cure cancer."
"The documentary premieres March 30, 31, and April 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET on PBS."
This is a youtube link on how to access PBS on-line for those outside broadcast area :
This is the short article from the newsletter:
"A Cancer Documentary, Promising Therapies and a Focus on Lymphoma
An upcoming PBS documentary, "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies," chronicles the history of all cancer, highlighting key advances in the treatment of blood cancers, many of which were supported by LLS funding over the last 65 years.
A therapy for elderly patients with secondary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is getting a fast-track designation through the federal approval process and a drug that has seen success with some leukemia and lymphoma patients (ibrutinib) is now approved for patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
In this issue, researcher Steven Ansell talks about his work to improve the outcomes for follicular lymphoma patients, and a new partnership -- The Alliance for Resource Collaboration in Hematology -- will make sure people get the information they need to better understand their disease and treatment."
