  •      Dr Robert Andtbacka, MD, surgical oncologist at the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City tells us about a new weapon that comes from a genetically-altered herpes virus and is the first cancer-killing viral therapy ever approved in the US. It is called the T-vec treatment.
  •      Dr George Suarez, MD, a urologist in Miami, is using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to remove prostate cancerwhile preserving a man’s quality of life.
