The CCTG SC28 SEAMLESS study is now open in Canada for anyone who has completed their primary cancer treatment, to learn mindfulness meditation on an app and see if it helps to improve stress and well being.
The purpose of this study is to test if a mindfulness program (Mindfulness Based Cancer Survivorship (MBCS) Journey) delivered through a mobile Am Mindfulness smartphone application can reduce ongoing psychosocial symptoms such as stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and fear of cancer recurrence or progression that are often experienced by survivors. The study involves using the app daily for four weeks and can be done totally remotely from one's own home, anywhere in Canada
Researchers will compare the usual treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma, with a new treatment that takes the standard combination drug treatment replacing one of the drugs with brentuximab vedotin that may be more effective and cause fewer side effects for patients.
A unique, patient focused trial aims to explore if people with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) live longer with a better quality of life if they start treatment earlier.
Dr. Joseph Pater has been recognized for a lifetime of work in cancer research with his appointment as an Officer of the Order of Canada. The honor acknowledges the impact of his dedication to clinical research which has improved the lives of Canadians with cancer.
Late-breaking results for the IND.227 trial were presented at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting. The Phase III international study evaluated the use of the immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab combined with platinum-pemetrexed chemotherapy as a first-line treatment for pleural mesothelioma patients.

Bill is located in Calgary with a microbiologist background and has worked in government, private industry, teaching and later moved to IT spending 30 years in the Kinesiology Faculty at the University of Calgary.
Cancer is not a single disease; it is hundreds. Cancers of the lung, breast, prostate, and colon are the most common forms of the disease, and account for about half of all diagnoses. But less common forms of cancer also account for about half of diagnoses, and these are not as well studied.
