Get rid of pancreatic cancer with new therapy
Initially, Dr. Balachandran was worried that he couldn’t get a vaccine fast enough to fight an early metastatic cancer like pancreatic cancer.
However, the study found that the vaccine rotation period lasting from 9 to 10 weeks of testing was reasonable, meeting the patient’s treatment needs.
According to Dr. Balachandran, most of the volunteers involved in the trial did not experience serious side effects.
Brigham had flu-like symptoms for a day or two after each treatment. But the symptoms are not as bad as when chemotherapy.
Although still in its early stages, the vaccine is one of the few medical advances that offers hope for the most intractable form of cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is predicted to become the second leading cause of death in countries within the next 10 years.
Its mortality rate is currently ranked above colon cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer.
While the field of treatment for other tumors has improved significantly in recent years, pancreatic cancer mortality rates have remained unchanged.
Dr. Robert Vonderheide, director of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia, said the world needs a major breakthrough in the research and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
The mRNA vaccine is just one of many examples of medical advances in the field of cancer prevention and treatment.
This is also clear evidence that basic studies of cell behavior can be converted and applied to patients flexibly.
Brigham, for his part, is delighted with the results of the treatment, hoping pancreatic cancer patients can benefit from potential therapy.
The scientists used mRNA technology to develop a vaccine to treat pancreatic cancer, the same immune-promoting mechanism as the Covid-19 vaccine.
Barbara Brigham had a bad 2020. Her mother died in January of old age, and her husband died in June from cancer.
By September, she had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, with a five-year survival rate of just 10%.
Brigham initially accepted the fact that she would soon leave the world, saying she had a “absolutely wonderful” life with her happy family.
