Successful Universal Cancer Vaccine Tested on Rats, Here’s How It Works
Cancer is a common term for malignant cell disease that continues to develop non-stop in the body. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world responsible for 8.8 million patients dying in 2015. Why is this cancer difficult to stop? One cause is because malignant cells come from within themselves and quickly mutate so that the body’s immune system difficult to eradicate it. Studies to improve cancer therapy continue to be done and recent research from Stanford Medicine seems to find a bright spot. Researchers are developing a vaccine for all types of cancer and the good news is successfully tested on mice.
“We used two immune system stimulating agents for this vaccine and we looked at tumor elimination throughout the body,” “senior researcher Ronald Levy said. SciShow host Hank Green explained the vaccine developed by the Stanford Medicine research team to simply make cancer more easily recognizable to the immune system. It’s just how this cancer vaccine works differently than vaccines in general
So the idea is not how to make the immune system learn to recognize something that is in the tumor, but how to make the cells in the tumor send a danger signal, “” Hank said as quoted from SciShow, Monday (12/2/2018)
Cancer cells tend to mutate quickly so that often can make the immune system stop attacking by turning off anything that could be a trigger … At that time the vaccine is in play, “” Hank.Tes showed from 90 mice with various types of cancer, 87 among them managed to recover. These results are considered very promising so that direct researchers continue to hold a small test on 15 patients manusia.Bila successful and the whole process is smooth maybe this vaccine will be the answer to the disease that is still a scourge in the dunia.Read also: Ministry of Health: The Highest Causes of Lung Cancer is Cigarettes !
