Hi Thomas!

First of all thanks for doing this. My mam was diagnosed with Pseduomyoxma Peritonei and unfortunately a trial treatment program had to be stopped (more here).

So anyway her treatment had to be stopped because of a 'nick' on her bowel, risking septicaemia.

Do you know anything else that could be done to prevent her death?

Not a scientist but IIRC from school, a DNA mutation in a cell causes uncontrolled cell division. That's pretty much it as to what it is. Not sure why it's deadly though.
