Am I the only one who actually read this amazing world-changing press release that Sooner AJ linked to? Wow! This is absolutely incredible! Follow the link and read the article!!!
This press release changes everything in cancer therapy. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’d guess that Kite and Juno might not have even been been bought out if this was released a year ago. (Perhaps no one would have bothered. They will soon be obsolete).
Thanks so much for sharing this, SoonerAJ. This wasn’t Off Topic at all. Greatly appreciated.
Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Activating T cells in tumors eliminated even distant metastases in mice, Stanford researchers found. Lymphoma patients are being recruited to test the technique in a clinical trial.
The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found. The researchers believe the local application of very small amounts of the agents could serve as a rapid and relatively inexpensive cancer therapy that is unlikely to cause the adverse side effects often seen with bodywide immune stimulation…
The approach worked startlingly well in laboratory mice with transplanted mouse lymphoma tumors in two sites on their bodies. Injecting one tumor site with the two agents caused the regression not just of the treated tumor, but also of the second, untreated tumor. In this way, 87 of 90 mice were cured of the cancer… The researchers saw similar results in mice bearing breast, colon and melanoma tumors…
Human studies are now underway.
