bean bag chair

Bean bags are a great way to be the best Aunt,Uncle, brother, sister, mother, father, or crazy next door neighbor during Christmas time. All children love beanbag chairs and they are not stopping just by having a normal one. You want to be the one that gets them the one that is the biggest and best. This is why you need to get one that is more modern. The modern ones take everything you love about bean bag chairs and makes it extraordinary. The newer ones are bigger, better, and you will never be considered the family member that gets lame gifts ever again.  When we say bigger you might be thinking about the ones from when you were a child. They were just big enough for you to sit comfortably in them, but after a while you ended up needing to find some more beads for it or you would be sitting on the ground. You don’t have to worry about being 20 now and trying to fit in one of these. This is because you can get it in a diameter of six feet! Imagine when you were a kid and you always wanted the coolest stuff that your friends didn’t have. You probably thought your space themed chair was cool but you can get one now in a color that matches your décor, but the impact of being six feet wide. No one will ever oppose to going to your home for movie night. The beads inside is actually foam and you don’t have to worry about it breaking down like the foam beads the old style had the problem with. If you are still not impressed, you can get a foot stool to match. You heard that right. A foot stool for your wicked awesome bean bag chair. You will never want to leave your home.  The bean bag chair has many family members getting labeled “the best ever”.

Study Finds Dosing Schedule Critical for Promising New Mesothelioma Treatment, Reports Surviving Mesothelioma

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) November 15, 2014

Japanese scientists say a combination of the chemotherapy drug pemetrexed (Alimta) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) can shrink mesothelioma tumors up to 80 percent but only if it is administered in the right order. Surviving Mesothelioma has just posted an article on the new research. Click here to read it now.

Doctors at Tokyo Medical University and the Nippon Medical School gave pemetrexed and PDT to mesothelioma cells in the lab and to mice that had been injected with human mesothelioma.

In nude mice treated using a combination of pemetrexed and NPe6 PDT, the tumor volume decreased by 50% but subsequently increased, reaching the pre treatment value after 14 days, writes lead author Dr Sachio Maehara.

According to the report in the International Journal of Oncology, photodynamic therapy given prior to pemetrexed was more effective, but tumors still grew back. It was only when pemetrexed was used as a pretreatment that the combination not only shrunk mesothelioma tumors, but kept them from regrowing.

As any cancer patient knows, shrinking the tumor is only half the battle, says Surviving Mesothelioma Managing Editor Alex Strauss. The most promising treatments, and the ones that are most likely to have a positive impact on mesothelioma survival, are those that can also prevent regrowth, as this treatment appears to do.

To understand how PDT and pemetrexed may work together to fight mesothelioma, see Promising Mesothelioma Therapy Combo Reportedly Shrinks Tumors, Inhibits Regrowth now available on the Surviving Mesothelioma website.
