Growth Characteristics
1. Differentiation between male and female
Female grows quickly about two years than male, this is because female reach skeletal maturity faster than male. Boys grow up rapidly around ages 11~14 and girls grow ages 10~12.
2. Period of rapid growth
Normally, there are four periods of growth and two of them are the periods of rapid growth. First stage is from birth to age two where nutrition is the most important thing. Second stage is from adolescence to age 15~16. After two years of adolescence, growth ceases in both male and female because of closed growth plates. Thus, treatment of growth is particularly opportune at the time of school age that is before adolescence.
1. Inborn error
   a. osteodystrophy
   b. chromosome aberration (Down's syndrome or turner syndrome)
   c. IntraUterine Growth Retardation IUGR)
2. Secondary growth delay caused by chronic disease
   Innutrition led by anorexia, diarrhea
   digestive, cardiac, liver and bowel, lung, thyroid disease

4. Familial dwarfism
   Inherited factor that is genetically transmitted from parents to child influences offspring. In this case,
   one or both of parents are dwarfism.

   (Puberty is delayed compared with other children.)
6. Psychosocial dwarfism
   Social isolation, child abuse, break up with parents, lack of affection
Diagnosing growth disorder
   1. Cortisol Binding Globulin (CBG), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR)

In other words, it is Korean medical cancer treatment to make chronic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes cannot worsen and maintain dormancy.         ☯ Cancer treatment and recurrent metastasis   Generally, it’s the norm that getting surgery and anti-cancer or radiation therapy when patient detects cancer, usually below operable tertiary solid cancer. After that, if cancer does not appear through CT or PET-CT etc, patient gets regular tracking observation. In this case, cancer cell is so small that it become invisible through imaging test and over time, it grows, spreads and recurs. Therefore, it is quiet important not to grow remaining cancer cell after treatment.         ☯ Goal of Cancer Dormancy Therapy       Cancer Dormancy Therapy puts goal in suppression the cancer cell to grow and metastasize as shown above.

At East West Cancer Center of Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital, we apply several therapies such as acupuncture, herbal acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine to increase patients’ immune function.   3.

Multipath Targeted Therapy for Cancer 컨텐츠이미지 [ 등록일 : 2013-12-10 , 조회수 : 4,285 ]
  < Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital of Daejeon University>   http://en.djuds.or.kr                                                                               ☯ What is targeted therapy?   Recently, anti-cancer drugs have become targeted therapy. Targeted therapy falls into two primary types, which are oral anti-cancer medicine and injections.   1. Oral anti-cancer medicine     - Chemical substances that block off signal transmission process that is activated in the cancer cell     - Chronic myelogenous leukemia, Leukemia, Gastrointestinal base tumor: Gleevec (imatinib)     - Lung cancer: Iressa(gefitinib), Tarceva(erlotinib)     - Breast cancer: Tykerb(lapatinib)   2. Injections     - Antibody protein that combines with target on the surface of the cancer cell     - Colorectal cancer: Erbitux(cetuximab)     - Breast cancer: Herceptin(Trastuzumab)   Target is used for cancer treatment. Target is also in vascular endothelial cell around cancer or in blood. Avastin (bevacizumab) blocks off the endothelial growth factors in blood and disturbs the angiogenesis, so treats the cancer. In addition, we are all working on developing apoptosis inducing agent that induces cancer cell death and cell cycle inhibitor that cuts off cell division cycle. Also, new multipath targeted therapy for cancer that blocks off the various routes has been developed. For instance, Nexavar(sorafenib) blocks the primary routes for cancer and suppresses the angiogenesis.           ☯ What is ‘Korean Medical multipath targeted therapy for cancer’?   Most Korean medicine anti-cancer drugs fall under   - HangAmPlus     : Main components are Cordyceps militaris and panax notoginseng.     : Suppression the metastasis and recurrence of cancer by blocking off the fibroblast growth factor (FGF)     : Induction of cell death     : Suppression of lung cancer and solid cancer   - MyeonYeokPlus     : Main components are Hericium erinaceum and milk vetch root.     : Suppression of tumor growth by activating dendritic cell, macrophagocyte and natural killer cell.   - Bee-venom acupuncture for removing allergen     : Anti-cancer herbal acupuncture     : Suppression of malignant melanoma, lung cancer, breast cancer etc by inducing cell death.   - HwaChanSu     : Cell division cycle inhibitor that shut off the division cycle of pancreatic cancer, liver cancer and so on.     : Joint research between MD Anderson in USA and Fudan University in China.     : Anti-cancer injections from toad skin.   Multipath targeted therapy for cancer is injected into the body through a number of path and works as multipath targeted anti cancer medicine.         ☯ Advantages of Korean Medical multipath targeted therapy for cancer    Minimization of side effect & potent anticancer efficacy   - HangAmPlus     : Similar level of survival rate compared to the existing anticancer drugs about non-small-cell lung cancer   - HwaChanSu     : Survival rate of pancreatic cancer and liver cancer if patients take HwaChanSu in conjunction with       other anti cancer medicines.   On the contrast, results on toxicity response show that there is only a slight side effect. Therefore, Korean medical multipath anti-cancer therapy is expected to be widely used.   East West Cancer Center at Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital offer various therapies that attack the cancer directly, improve immunity, extend living period and improve the quality of life.         ☯ ‘Korean Medical multipath targeted therapy for cancer’ Program   ° Target     1.
