Dr. Judah Folkman shares his forty-year quest of a radically new cancer treatment including the development of the drug Endostatin.

Angiogenesis : an integrative approach from science to medicine by William D Figg( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Judah Folkman, father of angiogenesis, (1933-2008) was the Director of the Vascular Biology Program, Andrus Professor of Pediatric Surgery, and Professor of Cell Biology at Harvard University's Boston Children's Hospital. In the 1971 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine, he proposed the theory that tumor growth is angiogenesis dependent. This premise was the basis of this field of research and has become the focus of scientists worldwide. Because of Folkman's discovery and research, the possibilities of antiangiogenic and angiogenic therapy have broadened beyond cancer to many noncancerous diseases. This book represents the first collection in a volume of which Dr. Folkman is co-editor. Dr. Folkman authored nearly 400 original papers and more than 100 book chapters

Thalidomide : a second chance?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Documentary looking at the history of the drug thalidomide. The first part of the programme examines the discovery of the drug in Germany in 1954 and subsequent popularity as 'Distaval', prescribed as a tranquiliser for anxiety and morning sickness during pregnancy. It turned out to be one of the biggest disasters in medical history after women in the early stages of pregnancy, even if they took just one dose of the drug, gave birth to children with shortened arms and legs. The drug was banned in 1962 but three years later was used to successfully treat the skin lesions of ENL (erythema nodosum leprosum), a side effect of leprosy. It has also been used to treat painful ulcers in Behcet's Disease sufferers. It was found that multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer, was brought under control through the use of thalidomide, but there are side effects that can lead to neuropathy. An alternative drug, Revimin, has been developed which appears to hold no risk of birth defects or side effects. Thalidomide caused a revolution in the way scientists think about treatment of cancer and the programme ends by suggesting that because of this, the drug may be 'making amends' for the horrors it was previously responsible for
