Amazing research results have recently been published in the scientific journal Nature Immunology. A T-cell line can identify and neutralize different types of cancer cells. The world is eagerly awaiting the outcome of this promising research. Thanks to this discovery, a universal cancer treatment will be soon developed. According to Professor Andrew Sewell: "This opens up the possibility of a 'single' cancer treatment, a single type of T cell that may be able to destroy several types of cancer.”
The solution has been right in front of us from the beginning.
The discovery of these white blood cells was the result of advanced research on the body's natural defense system. According to researchers at Cardiff University, cancer-killing T-cells are an inextricable part of our immune system. They are located in the blood and can scan the entire body. Thanks to their built-in anti-cancer GPS known as TCR, these T-cells are able to detect a very large number of cancer cells. Most importantly, these immune cells are able to eradicate cancer cells without affecting the body's healthy cells. The cancer is beaten and no side effects should be experienced by the patient.
From discovery to treatment of cancer
The method for using these super T-lymphocytes for therapeutic purposes is the one used for CART T-cells. First the T-lymphocytes are removed from the patient's body. Then they are transformed into super T-lymphocytes in laboratories. Once done with it, they are re-injected into the patient's body to initiate hostilities with the cancer cells.
The development of a new cancer treatment is never too late. Until now, all experiments related to this discovery have been done in laboratories on animals. Researchers are now waiting for clinical tests to develop a treatment.
Good things come to those who wait.
Cancer all, concerned!
