Other Exceptional Opportunities
Cancer Research Ideas - Other Exceptional Opportunities (Archived)
Not sure where to enter your idea? Use this space for other ideas you may have that could provide exceptional opportunity for progress, including ways to improve the cancer research process, encourage collaborations, and achieve other goals important to advancing progress against cancer.
The submission period for Other Exceptional Opportunities ideas ended on July 1. However, we encourage you to sign up for regular e-mail updates about the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative at the Cancer Moonshot Milestones web page.
Imaging genomics/radiogenomics is an emerging field focused on integrating quantitative image features from medical images (e.g. MRI, CT) with molecular data from tissue (e.g. mutations, gene expression, proteomics).
Not knowing who has done what, I submit that we should gather an extensive review of cancer through history - A Cancer Catalog/Encyclopedia
Maybe it would help to connect with the 90+ Study of the oldest old at UC.
To prevent cancer
Use soluble preparation of sulfonamide/dorzolamide.
Daily intake of this drug (1-2 drops in the eye or nose) is safe and would prevent cancer.
Have a forum to discuss top cancer drug targets that discusses the rational for a potentially new therapeutic, including pros and cons. Similarly, have a top"100" set of cancer therapeutics with their pros and cons.
I am a 10 year breast cancer survivor. I was on Tamoxifen for 3 yrs and 5 yrs of Femara. I have suffered from high calcium levels and high PTH levels in my blood. In addition, I developed Osteopenia. More research is needed in this area.
I have a question, rather than an idea.
So, I'm cancer free, have been for 4yrs in November... But my body and my brain have never been 'fixed' or 'repaired'... How can my body and brain be repaired?
There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of KNOWN carcinogens in manufactured products that Americans purchase every day.
Too much focus of the NIH is placed upon direct clinical applications. Most of the major scientific breakthroughs in the last century have come from basic research, including most of our advances in understanding cancer.

It is important to consider the increasingly limited discovery of new drugs for cancer treatment and to realize that biologic treatments may very well be the answer to being able to control cancer and limit its devastating effects, namely metastasis.
I work on a BMT unit and have seen the ravaging effects of GVHD. I was thinking that either breast milk or colostrum could possibly repair or help rebuild flora to match the immune system of the graft?
