UNMASKING

BREAST
CANCER

A key to battling cancer is getting one's
immune system to spot and kill rogue
cancer cells. UVA Cancer Center researchers hope to boost a person's own natural
defenses against advanced-stage breast cancer with a unique two-pronged approach.
Patrick Dillon, MD, and David Brenin, MD,
have launched a clinical trial evaluating the
safety and effectiveness of pairing highintensity focused ultrasound with immunotherapy in treating metastatic breast cancer
that has spread to other parts of the body.
Study participants receive the immunotherapy drug Keytruda and have a focused
ultrasound treatment (which concentrates
sound waves inside the body to destroy
unwanted tissue).
"The hope," Dr. Brenin says, "is to
unmask cancer cells normally invisible to
the immune system by leveraging the combination of both treatments that help boost
the body's immune system."

PLAYING WITH
YOUR KIDS

You should embrace your inner child, and while you're at it, why don't you
get that kid's heart pumping, too?
Playing outdoors with your children gets everyone moving, and as an
added benefit, you'll be doing something together.
A 155-pound adult will burn 141 calories in 30 minutes of romping with
the kids at the playground. (Just make sure you actually play; sitting on a
nearby bench doesn't count.)
Here are a few other ideas to consider (all calorie counts based on 30
minutes for a 155-pound adult):
3 Frisbee: Throwing and catching (or in many cases, chasing) the flying object burns 106 calories.
3 Swimming: Swim in the pool or lake with your child, and you'll burn
223 calories.
3 Basketball: A game of basketball churns through 298 calories.

The UVA breast cancer study may
be the first in the world to study
the combination of ultrasound and
immunotherapy in treating breast
cancer. For more about this study,
