Scientists have found an effective remedy against cancer
A new method destroys cancer T-cells without damaging the healthy.
Scientists from Cardiff University have found a way to find and destroy abnormal T-cells, leading to the development of T-cell lymphoma, reports MedicalXpress.
Lymphoma is formed from degenerated immune cells – lymphocytes. There are two types of lymphocytes: B-cells and T-cells. Recent developments have helped find a way to heal a patient from B-cell lymphoma, but T-cell lymphoma remains one of the most aggressive and difficult to treat forms of cancer.
T cells fight disease pathogens using receptors made up of C1 or C2 genes. The human body contains an approximately equal number of T cells, both with the C1 genes and with the C2 genes. If the T-cell is reborn, then all cancer cells will contain only one of these genes.
It is noted that scientists were able to find a way to destroy cancer T-cells without damaging healthy ones. For example, if cancer T cells contain the C1 gene, then only cells with this gene will be destroyed, and the lymphocytes containing C2 will remain unscathed. This method allows a person to keep the immune system.
