Dr. Clay Siegall Talks About DNA Sequencing And Genetic Testing In Cancer

Cancer is a threat to the human life. This is because it has become of the leading causes of endless deaths and disabilities. Cancer is a collective term for numerous diseases, which differ in severity from one person to another. These differences are influenced by genetics, hormones and other biologically- related factors. The most notorious cancer in women and men is breast cancer and prostate cancer respectively. Recently, Dr. Clay Siegall, an expert in the field of cancer therapy, discussed the advances that have been made in the field and their benefits. It has been known that human genes, which have unique DNA codes and sequence, predispose them to the development of specific diseases like cancer.

Genetic testing, which involves the study of DNA code and sequence in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases like cancer, has helped physicians to make faster and accurate diagnoses. This way, they have been able to develop targeted treatment for individual patients. This process has facilitated the quick diagnosis of prostate cancer, which for many years relied on a slower process of blood work, biopsies, and ultrasounds. Clay said that the success in genome sequencing has enabled a Dutch hospital to develop an innovative method of diagnosing prostate cancer within two weeks. With such prompt diagnosis, patients are able to start immediate treatment.

Securus Technologies Helpful in Tracking Down Fugitives

When there is a dangerous fugitive loose in my city, we have a fugitive task force that specializes in taking control of the situation quickly and finding our suspect before he can commit an other crimes. This month, we got the call that a fugitive escaped the inmate transport bus and was loose in our city. The bus had mechanical issues, and while the vehicle was being repaired, this daring fugitive dot out the window and into the woods. As far as we knew, he was still in shackles and his orange prison jumpsuit.


It didn’t take long for the tips to come pouring in, and one took us right to a wooded area where the suspect was though to be hiding. Luckily for him, he was able to get into a hardware store and saw off his cuffs and find a change of clothes, ten slip into the woods. The tips lead us to that location, and the dogs were on the scent from there. We did not think the suspect had any family or friends in the area, so we headed to the local prison for help.


Once at the prison, we discovered they utilized the Securus Technologies call monitoring system to make their location safer. These units are in 2,500 jails around the country, and the CEO says his employees are all dedicated to making our world safer. We plugged the suspect into the LBS software, and we got a hit that day from a distant cousin in our jail telling his family where the suspect was based on news reports and chatter in the jail. This inmate was key in helping us to identify who was going to meet the suspect and give him a ride out of our county. We intercepted both and made the arrest before anyone was hurt.
