My dear husband forwarded an article to me a few days ago, which I almost didn’t see. Thank goodness I did because things like this produce a small sigh of relief in that part of my chest where I keep all those fears of a reoccurance bottled up. (You can’t live in fear, but anyone who’s had cancer and says those fears don’t crouch somewhere and occasionally pop their head up is lying.)
The news? That over 2 years, Australian scientists have had a 100% success rate treating cancerous mice with “Trojan horse” cells. One hundred percent!
Cancer cells pull this clever trick by where they turn on a gene to make proteins which resist cancer drugs. This new therapy injects something that the cancer cells let in unsuspectingly, when then turns taht gene off. Then, chemo drugs can target the cancer cells, and they have no defense. Obviously, I’m a layman of epic proportions, so read the promising news for yourself.
Human trials will be starting soon. I hope to hear more soon, otherwise my fingers will freezed in the fervently crossed position.
