1). Please explain why inflammation is an important process which is beneficial to us even though it is painful? If it is beneficial, why is it that we take medicines to stop inflammation?
2). Discuss ethical issues in research (specifically the Stanford Prison Experiment and Milgram Obedience Experiment) Was the research in any of these cases ethical? Why or why not?
umors that are recurrent or progressive despite regular treatment (Excellus). Medicare approves hyperthermia treatment when used with radiation for primary or metastatic cutaneous or subcutaneous superficial malignancies and it is not covered when used alone or with chemotherapy (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services). Although not all treatments are FDA approved, University of California San Francisco uses “multi-modality hyperthermia” meaning that they customize the treatment to each patient’s cancer, including combining chemotherapy and hyperthermia (UCSF). Cost of treatment is something that is very important to cancer treatment, as if something is too expensive, it limits the availability of treatment. Based on research on line, there are no current prices for the cost of hyperthermia treatment, but we can infer from other countries and the past on what the cost might be like now. Back in 1994 a “hyperthermia project” was done at the University of Turin in Italy. When the cost of treatment is converted to USD, the cost per treatment was around $2,676 but that was back in 1994(Gabriele 1994). When accounting for inflation, the cost per treatment would now be $68,038.52. Prognosis When hyperthermia therapy is used in conjunction with radiation therapy, in the treatment of solid surface and subsurface malignant tumors that are not responding well to normal treatment, the response rate is around 70% compared to a response of just 35% for radiation alone (Excellus BCBS). Tumor Treating Field Therapy Another therapy that is not well known is tumor treating field (TTF) therapy. Tumor treating field therapy is the use of electrical fields to disrupt rapidly dividing cancerous cells (Hopkins Medicine). The electric field acts on charged proteins, such as tubulin and septin, in the cells that are important for mitosis, cell division (Novocure). It specifically stops the cell from forming chains that separate genetic material in the cell’s nucleus and the correct positioning of these charged proteins before cell division (Hopkins Medicine). When cells cannot divide normally, t>GET ANSWER
