Cancer Cure 2018?
The recent news flow about cancer has inspired me to believe that 2018 could be the year a further glimmer of the cure appears. Some of the products that are moving forward to the clinic or in the clinic are extremely impressive.
For prostate cancer IMRT already appears to be curative for many with advanced illness: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/26/prostate-cancer-treatment-could-cure-men-no-hope/
An amped up version of ACT using CD26 high T-cells helped in melanoma, pancreatic and mesothelioma.
Human CD26high T cells elicit tumor immunity against multiple malignancies via enhanced migration and persistence
I have learned to be careful with the UK tabloids headlines, though this one does seem impressive. They are starting with pancreatic cancer which gives me an indication that they are serious.
Hoping 2018 will be the year that we find the cure.
