Drug shows reduction in tumors related to multiple cancers

Posted on April 2nd, 2012 No Comments

New research has shown that a single drug can help to reduce tumors related to bladder, breast, colon, ovary, liver, prostate and brain cancer after the tumors shrank when it was transplanted into mice.

According to researchers, cancerous cells usually send a signal to the body to not “eat,” but this antibody blocks this signal so that the immune system will destroy the cancer cells.  This drug was produced after researchers at Stanford discovered a protein, CD47, that is very high in Leukemia cells.

Then, it was discovered that this protein is also on healthy cells and it is the marker that tells the immune system to not destroy it. The cancer cells use this blocker to trick the immune system, but the  new antibody may be able to block this. This may be effective in treatin not just blood cancers, but in other multiple types as well.

Bladder cancer can be very aggressive and recently, a type 2 diabetes treatment, Actos, has been tied to the development of this cancer. If this has happened to you or someone you care about, you need representation on your side that is committed to fighting for justice.
