From the PBS-Nova archives, this Nova program companion website features "surgeon-turned-researcher Dr. Judah Folkman, who, together with colleagues at Children's Hospital in Boston, has spent over 30 years searching for ways to curb cancer by cutting off blood flow to tumors." The website allows visitors to view the entire _Cancer Warrior_ program (originally aired on February 27, 2001) in eight chapter segments including: Angiogenesis in Action, Preventing Angiogenesis, How Cancer Spreads, Starving Cancer, and more. The site offers a Teacher's Guide which includes a program overview, viewing ideas, classroom activity, ideas from teachers, related resources, and an interactive feature for students. The site also includes interview clips with Dr. Folkman; a microscope video examining cancer growth; a summary of clinical trials of angiogenesis inhibitors, and a feature on accidental medical discoveries such as penicillium mold and quinine.
