Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Immune discovery ‘may treat all cancer’

Though it is still in a very early stage of research, the impact and potential are significant to treat cancers. Researchers in Wales, UK, discovered an immune cell that scans the body, find cancerous cells, and attack them without causing any harm to normal cells. What is remarkable is that this immune cell in people’s blood, called T-cell, and its receptor seem to be able to find and kill a wide range of cancerous cells, including lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer.

How will the new treatment work? First, extract the T-cells from the body and genetically modify them. Then, these T-cells are programmed to create cancer-finding receptors. After growing the receptors in number, they are put back into the patient to do their work. This newly discovered immune system sounds like having a one-fits-all solution for cancer treatment.

Enjoy reading about this potential breakthrough discovery in our own immune system.
