A ground breaking drug has become available to patients with the blood cancer chronic myeloid leukaemia. Glivec has been so successful in trials that the licensing authorities have made it available for public use in almost record time.
Now more than 6,000 people suffering from Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML) have a real chance of survival. Around 1,000 people a year are diagnosed with the condition and around half are dead within five years.

Researchers at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in America have found that patients in the early stages of the most common form of leukaemia may respond well to taken supplements of a green tea extract.
The chemical, epigallocatechin galeate (EGCG), was found more than two thirds of 42 patients in the trial showed a significant reduction in the number of leukaemia cells in their blood or other signs the cancer was not spreading.
Dr Tait Shanafelt, hematologist and lead author of the study, said: "Although only a comparative phase III trial can determine whether EGCG can delay progression of CLL, the benefits we have seen in most CLL patients who use the chemical suggest that it has modest clinical activity and may be useful for stabilising this form of leukaemia, potentially slowing it down."

My experience so far has been, lets say,a little annoying!. After getting my name wrong on the Welcome pack (used my first name as my Surname!),NOT sending me my requested Wireless Router (Which, by the way TalkTalk,I DID ask for!),Sending me random bills which simply demanded money but contained no explanation as to what for!, and then, when I contacted customer service (an oxymoron if ever there was one!) I spent 35 minutes listening to their BL**DY company jingle before being spoken too briefly by a REAL PERSON to then, after 5 more minutes listening to another annoying jolly tune, being CUT OFF because the call centre closed...brilliant!
Please folks.....take it from someone who has had the (sad) experience of being a customer...don't join this AWFUL,Impersonal and unhelpful service......save your cash,buy a mobile,get wireless broadband...but don't join TALK TALK.....you have been warned !.
Dear TalkTalk. I have a suggestion for you regarding cutting down on the insane amount of time that you expect your "valued" customers to spend listening to your jingle whilst awaiting connection to a member of your staff (honestly, it's like the musical equivalent of Chinese water torture!).
Why don't you allow people to call you.Leave their contact number for your call centre staff to pick up, then they could call the customer back when your staff are free to talk! Not bl**dy rocket science is it?
