I read this book before Christmas and found the message very uplifting. Vincent DeVita pioneered combination chemotherapy. His philosophy – “keep patients going until the next big thing comes along”. “Hang in there!” this doctor would say – and sure enough a lot of the time a new therapy would come along. De Vita states that if your doctor doesn’t have this mind-set  – then get another doctor!

A 30-minute discussion with Dr. Vincent de Vita:

OncLive

The author discusses the over-regulation which is impeding progress in finding cures for the big C. NICE, FDA and the strict adherence to guidelines are stifling innovation and blocking promising avenues for study. Concluding, DeVita  highlights some of the amazing new discoveries, the grounds for optimism and particular progress in Multiple Myeloma and Prostate cancer. Well worth reading, although some of the subjects discussed, by their nature, may upset in the short term….
