New Cancer Treatment Could Save Millions of Lives
I'M PRAYING OUR CURE HAS FINALLY ARRIVED
When I saw this story this morning, it stopped me in my tracks. Are we finally here? Has a cure actually been found?
Researchers at Stanford recently announced that they have found a new cheap cancer treatment that is completely destroying tumors in mice. They tried the treatment on 90 different mice and 87 of them were cured.
HOW THE TREATMENT WORKS
The treatment involves injecting two immune-boosting agents directly into tumors. Once the two immune boosting agents jumpstart those T-cells again, they keep attacking the tumor until it's completely destroyed. Not only that, when the T- cells re learn whats going on, they start attacking other identical tumors that haven't been injected at all. Once they relearn what they are supposed to be doing, they go to other areas of the body and find other tumors and kill them too.
APPROVAL IS PENDING
One of the immune boosting agents is already approved for use in humans, and the other is in the process of being approved. The study the researchers did was on lymphoma, but they believe it could work possibly on all cancers.
Could it really be we finally have a cure? I'm so hopeful. We've lost so many lives to this terrible disease.
