I've just heard the news that my oncology unit is installing an Ovarian Cancer Modulator.
I looked up the definition on Google and found the following extract:
Ovarian cancer is the number one cause of death from gynecologic malignancy. A defective p53 pathway is a hallmark of ovarian carcinoma. The p53 mutation correlates significantly with resistance to platinum-based chemotherapy, early relapse and shortened overall survival in ovarian cancer patients. PUMA (p53 upregulated modulator of apoptosis), a BH3-only Bcl-2 family protein, was recently identified as a transcriptional target of p53 and a potent apoptosis inducer in various cancer cells.
Looks like we should all be asking exactly what this is and if it's going to help us whether our local units have one of these beasts installed.
