New cancer therapy

by Gene on Jul. 05th, 2008

This seems promising – a cancer therapy that has worked 100% of the time in mice is now being tested on humans for the first time. Doctors at Wake Forest University are taking a certain type of white blood cell from donors and injecting it into patients with advanced forms of cancer. In lab tests on human cancer cells, the white blood cells killed the tumors. The new tests will determine if the procedure also works in a living patient.

(This sounds similar to a study in Seattle reported earlier on Buzz.)
