Wow. I’m sooo pleased about what I stumbled upon this morning…
First…I’ve written about sea cucumbers before, see http://margaret.healthblogs.org/2010/12/06/more-on-sea-cucumbers/ and http://margaret.healthblogs.org/2009/10/15/sea-cucumbers-and-smoldering-myeloma/ So I knew there was a clinical trial testing TBL 12 on “high risk” asymptomatic myeloma patients. Here’s the link to the first trial: http://goo.gl/UGw7Q Some results were presented at the ASH 2010 meeting (see my “More on sea cucumbers” Dec 2010 post, above link). Mainly, a decrease in M-spike, which is hardly a shabby result, eh? 😉
At any rate, while perusing the clinical trials website for something totally unrelated to sea cucumbers this morning, I was a bit surprised to come across another Phase II clinical trial (New York University School of Medicine). Fantastico!!!
Anyway, since I’m still working on and editing a post (on something that has nothing to do with sea cucumbers…), I figured I’d go ahead and post the link to this second trial, , for those interested: http://goo.gl/iSXeQ Sigh, why don’t any of these interesting trials take place in Italy? …
I just had cucumbers with chicken for lunch… I guess it’s not the same thing. But I have to say, there seem to be more and more hopeful studies appearing and thank you for uncovering them!
Some Australian study thought might be of interest.
