This Week on Your Cancer Today; Newly Discovered Cancer Cell Behavior

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 22, 2006 -- Your Cancer Today™ is a 30 minute television talk show, dedicated to inform and educate viewers from both the institutional and patients' perspectives. Its internet web site allows online viewing of past episodes on-demand and is under construction for the provision of further information and investigation of various cancer treatments, alternatives and research being conducted.

A promising and exciting new study just released this week by Duke University suggests that most aggressively malignant cancer cells have a sort of "toggle switch" which can enable them to morph into highly mobile cells that invade body tissues. Our guest is the lead author of the study, Dr. Mariano Garcia-Blanco, a Professor of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at the Duke University Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Dr. Garcia-Blanco's research group has focused on early splicing complexes particularly on the mechanism of splice site pairing, which is at the heart of fidelity and regulation of pre-messenger RNA processing. He expects his work will take them to the details of the interactions that mediate recognition during assembly of the splicing enzyme.

Also, the importance of diet and nutrition in preventing cancer and other diseases is getting more and more attention lately and we discuss that with a cancer education foundation director who has her own very personal story of a battle with cancer.

Your Cancer Today™. Producer Alan Painter is a Director of NanoLife Sciences, Inc. developers of Proton Treatment Centers. "This is a much needed show," Painter says, "and way overdue. Information is the key to fighting cancer and the more we can spread the word, the better it will be for everyone." Donald Baillargeon, executive producer and host of MoneyTV, which has been running since 1996 in 125 million homes globally, is also the host and executive producer of Your Cancer Today™.

Your Cancer Today™ is seen throughout the United States on broadcast, cable and satellite television as well as in Western Europe. A full channel lineup is available at the company web site, http://www.yourcancertoday.com, where the program can also be viewed online, free of charge, on-demand.
