Patient Q&A Section

How does treatment work?

"In summary, patients who were treated with combined modality treatment had longer survival than those who received either surgery or radiotherapy alone, except for patients with stage I and II disease (AJCC 6th edition) from 1975-1979, and those who received no chemotherapy at all.

What causes aging?

"The primary cause of aging is the cumulative damage to aging cells due to prolonged cellular senescence, though external causes such as exposure to free radicals at cellular levels and damage to DNA have also been implicated. Aging cells are constantly in a dormant state, awaiting repair of damage to the DNA or other damage to the cell. If damage occurs to the DNA, the cell enters a state of cellular senescence, a physiologically dormant state of the cell which may contribute to age-related diseases. A number of genes related to oxidative damage to DNA and proteins have been found to be associated with aging phenomena." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can aging be cured?

"While many of the treatments used to improve health look promising, the question of whether or not their use can be curative is unclear. A significant proportion of patients treated for dementia or Alzheimer's disease were still deteriorating after the treatments had been stopped. Thus it is not known if treatment can improve or cure Alzheimer's disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Is treatment typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"Treatment of patients with CVS, especially those without neurological disease, is often used in combination with at least one other treatment, such as mood stabilizers, steroids, and other medications. Further research should focus on the efficacy of treating CVS alone, with other treatments, and the efficacy of combined treatments, particularly for patients with neurologic manifestations." - Anonymous Online Contributor
