Judah Folkman, M.D. (1933-2008)

Judah Folkman, M.D., director of the vascular biology program at Children’s
Hospital Boston and the Andrus professor of pediatric surgery and professor
of cell biology at Harvard Medical School, died suddenly January 14, 2008.
He was 74.



Cancer superstar Judah Folkman dies

Boston Business Journal - by Mark Hollmer



A pioneer in cancer research has died.

Dr. Judah Folkman first theorized and later proved that tumors were
dependent on blood vessels for survival, and that tumors could be prevented
from growing further and even shrunk by cutting off their blood supplies.
The 74-year-old director of vascular biology at Children\'s Hospital Boston
died Monday of an apparent heart attack, according to media reports.

\"The hospital and the world have lost a bright light,\" Children\'s Hospital
president and CEO Dr. James Mandell said of Folkman\'s loss in a memo to
employees, staff and volunteers Tuesday morning.

Quiet by nature and a surgeon by training, Folkman traded the operating
theater for the laboratory in large part to pursue his theory on tumors
and blood supplies.

He would revolutionize cancer research. He published a significant paper
in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1971 that proposed his initial
hypothesis that doctors could fight tumors by cutting off their blood
supply.This later formed the basis of the field known as angiogenesis
research.

Pharmaceutical companies have pursued new anti-cancer drugs based on the
concept known as angiogenesis inhibitors. They\'re approved today in the
U.S. and 27 other countries, according to Children\'s Hospital.

Folkman in his lifetime authored 389 original peer-reviewed papers. He\'s
been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of
Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society and the Institute
of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.

这个要纪念一下。
1971年发的文章,20多年以后才得到广泛认可,比那幽门螺杆菌慢多了。连他自己都说,还是以前好,我做啥都没人跟我竞争。血管新生现在是肿瘤教科书上的基本理论了,老先生要是多活几年,再出来几个疗效好一点的药,说不定有希望拿NB奖的,可惜了。

今天 NPR 的 all things considered 讲了这么一件事:Dr. Folkman 申请基金的时候
去一个NB奖获得者实验室交流,说他申请材料不敢写太详细,怕别人偷他的理论。NB奖
教授看了他的申请书说,你不用担心,慢慢做吧,十年以后也不会有人相信你的理论的。

这NB奖教授确实没有说错,血管新生理论到30年以后才由于纽约时报广泛宣传,不仅得
到肿瘤学术界的认可,而且为公众所了解和期盼。

从1998年进入心内科轮转就知道他的大名,还专门写过一篇关于vegf在心血管疾病中应用的综述。从那以后,一直关注他的科研进展。绝对是当今最伟大的physician scientist之一,我的偶像。每个有志于从事临床科研的人都应该知道他的名字,这就好比做基础研究的人应该知道dna的发现者一样。3个月前刚听过他的讲座,还等着他有更好的发现,想不到就这样走了。值得怀念!!!

真是可惜呀!4年前刚来没多久就听过他的讲座,但是真的联系不起来了,今天同事提到才
知道.
2点感想:无论干什么都要坚持,贵在坚持,认准了方向就要坚持不懈地努力!
身体是革命的本钱,一定要好好珍惜,即使自我感觉良好,也要定期检查,防
患于未然.

致礼默哀!
