Ultrasound opens BBB in humans for first time using Doxorubicin. So if it works with Doxorubicin it should work that much better with Aldoxorubicin.

Some using HIFU advocate just treating the area of the prostate where the cancer is known to be to cut down on side effects, as HIFU can be repeated (though we know from prostatectomy specimens that malignant cells are often found throughout the prostate even if by biopsy/exam they appear limited to one area). Treating only part of the prostate would be very controversial, as you don't resect or seed only half the gland. HIFU by its nature is quite focused (the F) and does not really damage surrounding structures but those within the prostate such as urethra. I will defer to rgerst1 since it sounds like he's a urologist.

stay away from HIFU and cryotherapy for localized prostate cancer-- less side effects with brachytherapy and likely CK. Seen some badness with HIFU and cryo-- technology is better now but no advantage over brachy. higher risk of obstruction and longer need for catheters with hifu and cryo. these are techniques marketed by urologists to keep treatment in their realm without a real advantage. Most urologists don't believe in these types of treatments, however. Again, more about money and marketing than what is truly best care for patient.
HIFU has been discussed on this board before.

The FDA has not approved the use of HIFU for prostate cancer, but that has not prevented otherwise good urologists I know from personally flying pts to Cancun or the Dominican Republic for such treatment for 30K cash, with 8K going to the urologist. Since they would take 3 pts at a time it's not a bad way to spend a weekend in Cancun. It's a disgrace, but it illustrates what I've been trying to say on this board (and how convincing urologists can be to pts - these guys which 30K to spend are not idiots).
Lamb's Law -
Urologists who diagnose prostate cancer will not refer pts for treatment they can't make money from.
This can include IMRT or CK if the urologists own a piece of this! As I've said before, Lamb's Law is a fundamental truth as immutable as the inverse square law.
Surf, besides not being susceptible to fires and explosions what is the difference, both chemically and how they are made, between DR and DRI pellets? Also what process is needed at the Steel plant to transform them into DRI pellets? TIAA, John
Aren't negative interest like if you borrow my money I will pay you interest for as long as you borrow it. Then when you pay me back you can do itn with dollars that are wotrh as much as the one's I lent you. Defies Common Sense, doesn't it? Maybe it is why the banks won't lend.
Most Importantly from the Artcle: [ The Need Is There
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Accuray's CyberKnife addresses a real need within oncology for better radiation systems. Traditional radiation treatment schedules generally require the patient to come to the cancer center every weekday for a month or more, while the SRS/SBRT approach used by the CyberKnife can get the job done in about a week.
Maybe that doesn't sound like a big deal, but I can tell you that it does matter My wife is about to go back in for additional radiation therapy and I can tell you that she, like almost every cancer patient we've met, wants those tumors gone NOW - not in six weeks, but NOW. Along those lines, several presentations at the recent ASTRO industry meeting show better outcomes for SRS/SBRT relative to surgery and also relative to traditional radiation therapy, as well as solid cost effectiveness.]
In a free marketeconomy, I never could figure out why deflation was bad. It is just product seeking its value compared to other product using money as the measuring stick. The problem comes when the markets are not allowed to adjust freely.
"offaclf.....If you take out 5 momentum stocks.. AMZN, GOOG, FB, MSFT and TSLA, S & P is down for 2015 and more damage to stocks coming with rate hikes"
So stock market is not in any bubble, just those high flyers. AMZN, I think, for the first time made a profit last quarter. Those are the stock that should crash not the rest.
I think any Republican elected will cut regualtion and fire most of the regulatore and use that money to rebuild roads and bridges.

Title: First CyberKnife® M6TM and TomoTherapy® Systems in Chile Installed at Fundacion Arturo Lopez Perez Cancer Institute
Date(s): 5-Nov-2015 6:30 AM
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced today that the first CyberKnife® M6TM and TomoTherapy® Systems in Chile are now installed at Fundacion Arturo Lopez Perez (FALP) Cancer Institute in Santiago, Chile. FALP is also the first hospital in Latin America to install both Accuray systems. The devices provide a noninvasive treatment option and are used worldwide for delivering precise radiation therapy while maximizing patients' quality of life during and after treatment. The radiation therapy team at FALP expects to begin treating patients in the first quarter of 2016.
Government officials, including Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, will attend FALP's opening ceremony today in support of the institute's commitment to becoming an international leader in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer. The non-profit institute is dedicated to providing the best treatment possible regardless of a person's economic status and to supporting families with socioeconomic vulnerability.
"Our mission at FALP is to provide each cancer patient with high-quality treatments tailored to his or her individual needs," said Dr. Hugo Marsiglia, radiation oncologist and medical director at FALP Cancer Institute in Santiago. "With the two systems - CyberKnife and TomoTherapy - in one location we truly have the flexibility to treat almost any patient who may benefit from radiation therapy, regardless of the size or location of the tumor(s), and proximity to critical organs."
