Ovarian cancer may be cured in an extremely innovative way, as new research shows.
It is well-known that ovarian cancer is so hard to beat. A lot of people suffer from ovarian cancer, though the percentage of death possibility is 22 percent lower in comparison to 1991. From 21,000 women diagnosed with that disease, about 14,000 will die. As there are no specific symptoms, majority of women are not aware of the disease until III or IV stage.
For a very long time doctors couldn’t know what kind of genetic mutations, that causes ovarian cancer, would make your immune system react. But according to the new research in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, scientists created a vaccine that would help your immune system to attack cancer. Study coauthor Pramod Srivastava, MD, PhD, director of the University of Connecticut’s Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center said that firstly two to four weeks are needed to examine patient’s blood and cell. After that doctors would be able to make necessary mutations to have immune system’s response.
The process of creating such drugs may take much time, as it should be made for each woman personally. This vaccine may help millions of people to escape death. Doctors think that a lot of people now have hope to live a long healthy life. In the last statement, Srivastava said:
If we can prolong life by a year or more, that’s huge. This could reshape the way we fight many types of cancer
