2 Module Online Webinar Short Course
Two important aspects of cancer prevention and care are often overlooked. In this live seminar course Dr Lise Alschuler is looking closely at how the immune system protects us against the risk of the millions of cancer cells becoming a tumour. Seminar two is on survivorship. After defeating a tumour, what can we do assist the person who is at high risk of tumour return?
Each session is 90 minutes: 75 minutes presentation + 15 minutes Q&A
WEBINAR ONE – Immunological Control of Cancer
In the first module of this course Dr Alschuler is discussing the effects of immune suppressing factors and also the most useful natural immune support that she recommends for tumour protection.
The concept that the immune system is a defence mechanism against tumours is now 50 years old. There is compelling evidence that a primary function of the immune system is to confer protection against cancer.
For example, people with primary immunodeficiency and organ transplant recipients who are treated with immunosuppressive drugs are much more prone to cancer development.
Also, a high quantity and quality of the immune cell infiltrate found in human tumors are independent prognostic factors for patient survival.
Chemotherapy, biological therapies and radiotherapy for cancer has devastating effects on immune defence.
WEBINAR TWO – Survivorship
Surviving a tumour is a terrific outcome for a cancer patient. However, they now face life with a high risk of tumour return. We have a unique ability to help these people who receive very little if any support after their ordeal.
Lise is a breast cancer survivor. Throughout this course she will share her personal and professional experience so that we can all better support people to take steps to prevent tumour occurrence and reoccurrence.
