Here's Today's Feel-Good Story:
A new experimental cancer treatment made in Israel is effective for an incurable form of cancer and has achieved remission in 90% of the 74 patience who undertook the experiment.
Hadassah University Medical Center oncologists used the revolutionary Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell Therapy in this experiment, and hope to change the world of cancer treatments by utilizing the patient's own immune system to target and kill cancer tumors.
“We have evidence of a very positive overall response rate with minimal side effects, and they are mild,” Professor Polina Stepensky, head of the department at Hadassah. “These are dramatic results. This is a huge hope for patients with a disease that has not yet had a cure.”
