Claims of Australian Doctor About the cure of Cancer
An Australian doctor, Ken Micklethwait, worked for a long time along with his team on research to cure cancer. They discovered a new method in which injecting modified immune cells and these called CART cells. As you know, it is complicated to separate the cancer cells from normal cells, but CART cells can solve the problem now.
Dr. Ken said, “We take the immune cells that can’t see cancer. A gene inserts them so that they can see and kill the cancer cells.”
A patient’s report
Well, the new cancer treatment was adopted because there is up to 70 to 80 percent success rate. Well, the procedure was applied after the approval of the Food and Drug Administration.
Many other treatment methods are here to cure cancer such as bone marrow transplant and Chemotherapy. These methods rarely work on teenager patients.
A report was presented in which 19-year-old boy who has blood cancer and recovered after getting the treatment with CART cells method.
CART Cell Therapy and How it works
Here we’ll tell you how this therapy works. First, I’m going to mention the therapy’s steps.
- CART Cells
First immune system T-Cells of patients are removed through the laboratory process. The fighting ability has increased after that. T cells find out and remove abnormal cancer cells because they can identify the cancer cells efficiently. T cells modified and injected into the patient’s blood and then changes observed within a month.
