According to The Independent, researchers may have found that by taking pieces of a cancer's RNA, embedding it in fat nanoparticles, and injecting it all in the bloodstream of cancer-afflicted patients, caused their immune systems to produce T-cells capable of attacking the illness. While promising, researchers are still cautious.
Professor Alan Melcher, of the Institute of Cancer Research, said: “Immunotherapy for cancer is a rapidly evolving and exciting field. This new study, in mice and a small number of patients, shows that an immune response against the antigens within a cancer can be triggered by a new type of cancer vaccine.
“Although the research is very interesting, it is still some way away from being of proven benefit to patients.
