Cancer affects millions of people, and researchers are constantly working toward developing the best possible treatments. A study published recently in Nature found that one treatment in particular may prove very effective in treating leukaemia.
This article by Jessica Norris, writing for Medical News Today, makes the following points:
- Researchers found that a form of Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell cancer treatment was effective in treating leukaemia, keeping two people’s cancer in remission 10 years later.
- CAR T-cell therapy is a type of immunotherapy treatment that enhances the body’s immune response to fight off cancerous cells.
- The study found that two patients with leukaemia were cancer-free nearly a decade after receiving CAR T-cell therapy.
- More research is necessary to determine how effective CAR T-cell therapy is in treating different types of cancer.
