H-II: Stephen Michael Apatow Pushes New Standard Of Care For Cancer Treatment

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Humanitarian Resource Institute) - Cancer as a disease can be summarized as a disruption of the mutational equilibrium or the capacity of the immune system recognize abnormal cell growth (or mutations) and upon recognition, destruction of the challenge.   Cancer treatment that focuses on enhancement of the immune system, represents the most logical, safe and effective treatment approach for all neoplastic disease.  

H-II: Stephen Michael Apatow, Founder of Humanitarian Resource Institute, United Nations Arts Initiative, Director of Research and Development, Humanitarian University Consortium Graduate Studies Center for Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Law is working to engage every level of the international biodefense, veterinary public health and the medical research community into cancer treatment and prevention.  Today, his objective is to establish Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocyte Therapy as a standard of care in conjunction with with advanced diagnostics and treatment:

Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocyte Therapy: A specific type of cell transfer immunotherapy, in which the lymphocytes infused back into the patient are from the patients own tumor.  These lymphocytes are actually infiltrating and trying to destroy the tumor and they are obtained when the tumor is biopsied or excised. The tumor infiltrating lymphocytes contain a large concentration of cytotoxic T lymphocytes specifically targeted against the antigens in the patients own tumor as well as numbers of natural killer lymphocytes that can destroy tumor cells .  The lymphocytes are grown in a laboratory with interleukin-2 to stimulate growth of the lymphocytes and then infused back into the patient to attack and destroy the tumor. -- Neoplastic Disease: An Introduction to Human Disease: Pathology and Pathophysiology Correlations, Leonard V. Crowley.

As a global representative for the Arts and Entertainment industry with humanitarian relief and United Nations programs, he has doubled the intensity of work on priority issues. Six weeks out of surgery and and two weeks into chemotherapy/radiation for tonsillar cancer, Stephen recorded and produced the soundtrack "The American Way," thanks to the extraordinary care of the physicians and staff at the Yale Cancer Center.
