 Indulgence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Catholic theology, an indulgence is the remission granted by the Church of the temporal punishment due to sins already forgiven by God.
This was not true, rather the stated length of time actually indicated that the indulgence was equal to the amount of remission the individual would have earned by performing a canonical penance for that period of time.
There are some Protestant traditions which might seem similar to the Catholic practice of indulgences however, such as many televangelists who tell their viewers that their donations to the organization will "multiply" after they have donated to the network or other church sponsored project.

 Thomas Aquinas: Of the Effects of Grace
Therefore the remission of sins ought not to be reckoned among the things required for the justification of the ungodly.
Therefore the remission of sins ought not to be reckoned with the infusion of grace.
Now the remission of sins is the end of the justification of the ungodly; for it is written (Is. 27:9): "This is all the fruit, that the sin thereof should be taken away." Hence the remission of sins ought to be reckoned amongst the things required for justification.

 IONS - Research: Spontaneous Remission - Frequently Asked Questions
The term "spontaneous" as it relates to remission or regression is used when a patient shows a significantly measurable reduction in tumor size, or a reversal in the progression of a disease, and when this improvement cannot be attributed to Western allopathic medical treatment.
While it is often quoted that spontaneous remission occurs in approximately one in 60,000 to 100,000 cases, it is not clear from where this figure is derived.
That psychological and spiritual factors play a role in remission and survival is evident from the stories of people who have experienced unexplained recoveries from cancer and other diseases, but since the role of mind and the spirit is different for each person, it is difficult to generalize their influence.

 REMISSION OF SINS in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE (Bible History Online)
Remission is exemption from the consequences of an offense, forgiveness; pretermission is the suspension of the penalty (Philippi, Ellicott, Trench (Synonyms, XXXIII), Weiss; compare Acts 17:30).
Remission is restricted to the penalty, while forgiveness refers more particularly to the person, although it may be used also of the sin itself.
Remission also is used of offenses against God's law; forgiveness, against either divine or human law.

If patients are diagnosed with stage IV disease or, in spite of treatment, progress to a state of widespread disease, systemic chemotherapy is utilized in a more aggressive fashion.
In addition to the adriamycin-containing regimens, docetaxel and paclitaxel have been found to be effective in inducing remission.
The magnitude of the toxicity of these adjuvant therapies is usually small and many patients receiving chemotherapy on this basis are capable of normal activity during this time.

 Adult Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in remission is defined as a normal peripheral blood cell count and normocellular marrow with less than 5% blasts in the marrow and no signs or symptoms of the disease.
Although individual patients have been reported to have long disease-free survival or cure with a single cycle of chemotherapy, [3] postremission therapy is always indicated in therapy that is planned with curative intent.
The improvement in freedom from relapse using allogeneic bone marrow transplantation as the primary postremission therapy is offset, at least in part, by the increased morbidity and mortality caused by graft-versus-host disease, veno-occlusive disease of the liver, and interstitial pneumonitis.

 Adult acute myeloid leukemia
Adult AML in remission is defined as a normal peripheral blood cell count and normocellular marrow with less than 5% blasts in the marrow, and no signs or symptoms of the disease.
Supportive care during remission induction treatment should routinely include red blood cell and platelet transfusions when appropriate.[13,14] Empiric broad spectrum antimicrobial therapy is an absolute necessity for febrile patients who are profoundly neutropenic.[15,16] Careful instruction in personal hygiene, dental care, and recognition of early signs of infection are appropriate in all patients.
Leukemia-free survival appeared to be superior for patients receiving bone marrow transplants for two groups: patients older than 30 years of age whose first remission was less than one year; and patients younger than 30 years of age whose first remission was longer than one year.

 Treating to Remission
Nearly all antidepressant trials test for response rather than remission, but one company has recently thrown down the gauntlet in using remission as its criteria.

 Spontaneous (natural) remission of cancer
Believing such cancers to be "incurable", sometimes a doctor will reverse his original diagnosis and say the patient never really did have cancer in the first place.
However, it is now accepted that such remissions do occur--probably more often than generally believed.
In his valuable book Victory Over Cancer Cyril Scott quotes surgeon Hastings Gilford stating in 1925: "Though cancer is so commonly regarded as inevitably fatal, many cases are recorded of its 'spontaneous' disappearance--and nothing can be more certain than that these recorded cases are very few in comparison with those which are unrecorded".

 New analysis showed UC patients in clinical remission had higher rates of employment
In addition, of ten patients receiving disability compensation at the start of the trial, 80 percent of those in remission after one year were no longer receiving disability compensation.
The analysis of the ACT 1 and ACT 2 clinical data revealed that, at baseline, 35 percent of the 727 patients (n=257) in the studies were not employed and 7.0 percent (n=51) were receiving disability compensation.
Additionally, in September 2005, REMICADE was approved for reducing signs and symptoms, achieving clinical remission and mucosal healing, and eliminating corticosteroid use in patients with moderately to severely active UC who have had an inadequate response to conventional therapy.

If it is at all possible to grant to any one the remission of all penalties whatsoever, it is certain that this remission can be granted only to the most perfect, that is, to the very fewest.
Nevertheless, the remission and participation [in the blessings of the Church] which are granted by the pope are in no way to be despised, for they are, as I have said, the declaration of divine remission.
For it is clear that for the remission of penalties and of reserved cases, the power of the pope is of itself sufficient.
