Above are the two classical types of lung cancers: Non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC, left) and small-cell lung lung cancer (SCLC, right). NSCLC is a less aggressive and more common form of lung cancer (about 80-85% of cases). SCLC, however, is very aggressive and metastasizes (spreads) to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes.

If caught in time, NSCLC has the best outcomes and there exist different therapeutic options, including surgery, often leading to a complete cure. Unfortunately, SCLC are the most aggressive and incurable, with therapies only providing temporary remission at best.

However, in the lab we have been able to manipulate metabolic pathways to stop growth and proliferation of SCLC in 24-48 hours, with cells dying off. If we can do it in the lab, we MUST try it in vivo with animal models (mice). This is why we need your help. 11 million people per year still lose the battle to cancer and the amount keeps growing. Please support our work. 🙏

In our modern society, it is believed skills like math are the most important for children. However, our increasingly sedentary lifestyles are leading to higher rates of obesity and disease – including cancer – and it is actually physical education that is equally, or even more important, for our children’s futures. Additionly, numerous studies have found that physical education improves classroom behaviors and benefits several aspects of academic achievement, especially mathematics-related skills, reading, and composite scores in youth (American Academy of Pediatrics: http://bit.ly/2kavwvg) #physicaleducation #childrenhealth #cancerawareness

From the lab today: working with a breast cancer cell line we have genetically modified to study how different treatments change their metabolism. We are on the right path, but there is so much more to be done. Please help support our work. 🙏 #cancerresearch #cancerfree #cancerfoundation #cancermetabolism

Aerobic exercise has been found to dramatically lower the risk of metastatic cancer. A recent study has shown the amount of glucose consumed by internal organs rises during intense aerobic exercise, which decreases the amount of energy available to tumors. The study, led by two researchers from tell Aviv's TAU's Sackler Faculty of Medicine, found aerobic exercise reduced the risk of metastatic cancer by as much as 72 percent. Researchers, Drs. Carmit Levy and Yftach Gepner, stated: "the general message to the public has been 'be active, be healthy', but now we can also explain how aerobic activity can maximize the prevention of the most aggressive and metastatic types of cancer."

In 2019, Pogačar Cancer Research Foundation co-founder, and Tadej’s personal coach, @inigosanmillan discovered, along with Dr. George Brooks, that lactate– a substance produced by cells as the body turns food into energy (cell metabolism), is an oncometabolite – metabolites whose quantity are greatly elevated in tumors compared with normal cells. Poorly-regulated lactate can control the most important genes involved in a type of breast cancer and is a key element in cancer formation and tumor progression. 

Newly-published research builds on the action of lactate in tumor progression, but has also led to a promising new lead on how tumors metastasize, or spread to other parts of the body. It was found that cancer cells can interrupt a metabolic pathway that breaks down fats and proteins to boost the levels of a by-product called methylmalonic acid (MMA). This causes the cancer cells to become more invasive, consequently driving metastasis.

Thank you everyone who has supported us during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with purchases from Silca's Pink Collection. 🙏

Until the end of October 20% of all sales proceeds are donated by Silca to the foundation to support our research on cancer and metabolism, which we believe is the key winning the battle against breast cancer.

There are more than 200 types of cancer, often requiring different types of treatment. However, metabolic therapy is showing promise as a way to rob all cancer cells of their primary energy source. Cell metabolic therapy targets mitochondria—the energy producers of cancer cells—shutting down their growth and preventing them from spreading. If we remove the energy source that these cells use to power their attack on the body by targeting cancer metabolism, we can effectively treat a multiplicity of cancer types.

By better understanding cancer-specific metabolic processes, we can find new drugs to revolutionize cancer treatment and explore this new alternative to traditional treatments. 

Please help support our work. 🙏

Exercise is important to stay healthy after a breast cancer diagnosis, with studies showing improved quality of life and fewer side effects during follow-up treatment. Exercise also improves overall health and wellness, improving mood, reducing fatigue, and increasing stamina. Studies have also shown that exercise may reduce the risk of a breast cancer recurrence. One our foundation's primary goals is to advance research on the effect of physical activity on cancer treatment and prognosis.
