PHP Full Form – People Helping People
Full Form of PHP stands for People Helping People. It is a late night program broadcasted on CFRB, a clear-channel station based in Toronto. This program is basically about drug addiction recovery (or recovery from any other form of addiction). PHP is hosted by addictions counselor Mark Elliot on Saturday nights from 11 PM to 2 AM. Mark Elliot is himself is an Alcoholic addict and a drug abuser who has recovered successfully. PHP was initially broadcasted on CKLW as a four-hour night show in 1995. Later it was moved to CHUM Radio in the year 1996.
However, CHUM Radio Network canceled the program as it was not able to find any sponsors or advertisers for the program. Following CHUM, CFRB also planned to drop the show. When it announced the cancellation news, people who were listening to the program reacted very strongly. After this overwhelming response for his program, Mark Elliot had taken the broadcasting ownership of PHP and made it an infomercial. He was also able to get some sponsors for the program and relocated the program to Toronto. Now, this program is broadcasted 11 PM on every Saturday on CFRB and Bell Media’s CJAD.

PHP Full Form – Percutaneous Hepatic Perfusion
It is a cancer treatment process currently undergoing clinical testing in the phase III stage. PHP is a minimally invasive procedure which treats various hepatic tumors by isolating liver. After isolation, liver is exposed to high dose chemotherapy. Patients treated by PHP are proved to be tolerating high levels of chemotherapeutic agents without an increase in toxicity levels than their counterparts who are treated with traditional chemotherapy.
Percutaneous Hepatic Perfusion isolates liver from the circulatory system with the help of catheter & filters. Once the liver is isolated, the chemotherapeutic agent is infused directly to the liver through the common hepatic artery. The filtration of the venous effluent is done outside the body and filtered clean blood is then returned into jugular veins. This procedure can be done in a radiology suite or in an operating theater under general anesthesia or local anesthesia.
