For the first time defeated breast cancerNovember 11, 2022
For the first time, molecular biologists from the United States successfully “reprogrammed” immune cells and forced them to destroy a tumor in a woman’s chest and all its metastases. The woman has lived for 22 months after treatment, according to an article published in the journal Nature Medicine.
“We are on the verge of a new big revolution in the fight against cancer – now we have the opportunity to target the immune system to fight against many different mutations. Soon, physicians will be able to deal with those types of cancer that were previously considered incurable because they can easily accumulate new mutations”, commented the discovery of Laslo Radvania, an oncologist at the University of Toronto (Canada).
In recent years, molecular biologists and physicians have begun to pin special hopes on the so-called immunotherapy in the fight against cancer, allergies, diabetes and other not yet curable diseases. It is very simple in its essence – scientists are trying to “incite” human immunity on cancer cells using various antibodies, live microbes and a number of other unusual “baits”.
Today, there are already several types of immunotherapy that have successfully passed clinical trials and have been approved by the regulatory authorities of the United States and several other countries.
