Summary:
Will Endostatin revolutionize cancer treatment?

Imagine cancer as a highly manageable disease. Imagine treatment with few side effects. Imagine a revolution in medicine. Dr. Judah Folkman (Director of the Surgical Research Laboratories at Boston's Children's Hospital) shares his 40-year quest for a radically new cancer treatment, including the development of the much-touted drug, Endostatin.

As a young doctor, Folkman proposed that tumors cannot grow beyond the size of a pinhead without a network of blood vessels to nourish them. He also believed if the blood supply was blocked, the tumor couldn't grow to become life threatening. At first, the medical community scorned this controversial idea.

Now, Dr. Folkman invites cameras into his lab for a first-person look at the groundbreaking clinical research that offers hope to cancer patients. See a medical pioneer in action and hear the personal stories of courageous cancer patients participating in Endostatin and other drug trials.

Special DVD features include: Access to the Cancer Warrior Web site; chapter search; English audiotrack; and subtitles (CC). One one DVD5 disc. Region coding: All regions. Audio: Dolby stereo. Screen format: Widescreen (Anamorphic)
