Nanotechnologies will Help Fight Cancer
The human race does not give up in a search for ways to struggle cancer. International task force has developed a product that may become effective for all types of cancers. They managed to create a universal vaccine using nanoparticles. A report about the new development appears on the pages of Nature journal.
Ugur Sakhin, Task force Leader, Director of the Institute of Oncology Studies at Meinz Johann Gutenberg University, the new vaccine will be effective for all types of cancers, as a treatmen, not for prevention.
The vaccine has already passed “promising” tests in mice. It has also been tested in patients with melanoma. However, the final results of treatment of such patients will become available in about a year. Tests on a larger scale will be possible in case of positive results.
If everything goes on as it is planned, the drug will be developed and approved for marketing not earlier than in five years.
