WHATS IN THIS BLOG: • Tennis ball tumors. • 90 billion cancer-killing cells. • Highly experimental, but…..

I have reported on immunotherapy in treating cancer before (click HERE). After 50 years of research, this technique is beginning to pay off. I think that within 5 years we will see MANY success stories like the one below. And for ALL KINDS of cancer.

The following is excerpted from a STORY by James Gallagher, Health and Science correspondent, BBC News, 4 June 2018.

TENNIS BALL TUMORS. The life of a woman with terminal breast cancer has been saved by a pioneering new therapy, say US researchers.

She had tennis ball-sized tumors in her liver and secondary cancers throughout her body. Judy Perkins had been given three months to live, but two years later there is no sign of cancer in her body.… More “Paradigm shift in cancer therapy”

FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO, WHILE I WAS A GRADUATE STUDENT in Australia, a fellow student told me he was working on immunotherapy. I even remember his name. Herb said the promise was great. However I was in physics studying cosmic rays from the sun and it was a stretch for me to grasp his cellular explanation.

So recently I was surprised to sit up in bed one morning and hear on National Public Radio a scientist being interviewed about promising lab studies. This was on cancers in mice and harnessing the immune system to fight cancer.… More “Cancer: a great leap forward”
