The following are excerpts from an article in our local Sunday paper. It is from the Springfield News-Leader, Springfield, Missouri, Sunday, February 1, 2004 edition. The byline is Tara Parker-Pope.

If anyone finds links to these, I'd really like to see them

I can already think of a dozen of you ladies here that could benefit from these new discoveries, myself included.
Nancy J.
"At the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, several new molecular-imaging machines will allow doctors to find out far sooner whether a particular cancer treatment is working.
......new imaging methods will allow doctors to gauge the efficacy of a particular treatment far sooner by studying changes in the tumor that are evident long before it would typically start to change in size. In patients with a rare form of abdominal cancer, for instance, doctors can use molecular imaging to discern within just 24 hours whether the targeted therapy will be effective.
........As early as March, CellSearch, a new blood test from Johnson and Johnson, will be made available to the research community as the company awaits FDA approval, expected later this year. CellSearch is a simple blood test capable of detecting minuscule amounts of tumor cells circulating in the blood. Knowing whether circulating tumor cells are present helps doctors predict whether they need to offer a more aggressive treatment.
The test has been studied in patients with advanced breast cancer, but its most important use probably will be in women with early stage breast cancer......the test may also ultimately be used to better predict whether cancer has spread in patients with prostate or colorectal cancer."
