"The Emperor of All Maladies" Broadcast

You may remember Greg H's review of the Pulitzer Prize winning book "The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer" by Siddartha Mukherjee. It is truly an epic book tracing the history of cancer from its first documented origins to our current level of understanding/treatments.

PBS will be airing over 3 days a 6-hour documentary based on the book beginning on March 30th at 9pm EST. If you read the book, you won't want to miss this. If you haven't read the book, you won't want to miss this either!

You can view the trailer and some sample shorts at the pbs.org website:

52 yo female, dx 9/08, AA/hypo-MDS, subclinical PNH, ATG/CsA 12/08, partial response. Tried slow cyclosporine taper over 4+ years. Platelets fell, so back on cyclosporine. Trisomy 6 clone in 5% of cells.
