Way to go science! In another study hailed as a breakthrough, doctors announced that some patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma saw their cancer disappear after being treated with a new drug that boost their own immune cells:
Of the 38 patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma who took part in the most recent study, two of the seven who received the highest doses of the drug saw their cancer disappear while five others had reductions in their tumours of more than 50 per cent.
One patient on a lower dose also became cancer free and remains so after more than a year.
The results, published in the journal Science, are encouraging because they suggest that the bigger the dose, the bigger the effect.
