Cancer immunotherapy — using the body’s own immune system to fight tumor cells — may be a major part in a cure for cancer, researchers in Britain say.
Bent Jakobsen, the Danish-born chief scientific officer of Immunocore who started to study T-cells 20 years ago while working at the Medical Research Council’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England, says cancer has been largely treated by slicing (surgery), poisoning (chemotherapy) or burning (radiation). All try to spare healthy tissue from irreparable damage while attempting to kill every cancer cell.
“Immunotherapy is radically different,” Jakobsen told The Independent exclusively. “It doesn’t do away with the othercancer treatments by any means, but it adds something to the arsenal that has one unique feature — it may have the potency to actually cure cancer.”
