I would like to see a reputable doctor comment on it. His techniques are intriguing.December 11, 2014 at 4:39 pm #65935goldfidlerParticipant
I did. Very interesting. I sent the link to my case manager at MSMC. It will be interesting to see what she thinks about it.
I liked the lead message which was that cancer research today is 100% different than 5 years ago. There is so much more knowledge and understanding now.December 12, 2014 at 5:30 am #65936kylezParticipant
This article in Forbes was written after the 60 Minutes interview, by a writer who’s been following the Soon-Shiong and NantHealth story for awhile. … While it does some full-on dissecting the interview, the writer concludes that overall, “I looked long and hard at Soon-Shiong’s efforts, and I came away optimistic that something real might come out of them.” http://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2014/12/07/here-is-what-60-minutes-didnt-tell-you-about-the-billionaire-who-is-trying-to-disrupt-cancer-care/ ” class=”bbcode_url”> http://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2014/12/07/here-is-what-60-minutes-didnt-tell-you-about-the-billionaire-who-is-trying-to-disrupt-cancer-care/
The coordinator of my clinical trial told me about Dr. Soon-Shiong, and that he and the Providence Cancer Center (in Portland where I’m seen) are starting a new partnership. “Soon-Shiong will also serve as the health system’s new global director for cancer services and bio-informatics, working with oncologists in the five-state Providence system.” I’m not sure if it’ll be impacting my care anytime soon, but I’m interested for sure.

“Providence will become the first health system to use the machines for clinical purposes, as opposed to just research. A similar machine at Providence Portland will be tied to a collection of faster models primarily located in Southern California, where Soon-Shiong’s company, NantHealth, is based.” In the picture, the research director of Providence, who’s also a melanoma oncologist, is shown standing next to one of the Illumina sequencing machines.

I am very impressed!
