I do hope that in our current society, somebody with the capabilities and heart of someone like Jonas Salk, is not hard to find.

In 50years people will be talking about chemo therapy like we do today about medical practice in the dark ages.

cd47 is ubiquitously expressed, an anti cd47 antibody will cause autoimmune reactions.

Quote:
CD47 is a kind of protein that is found on the surface of many cells in the body. It tells circulating immune cells called macrophages not to eat these cells. The body uses the CD47 protein to protect cells that should be protected and to help dispose of cells that are aged or diseased. For instance, red blood cells start off with a lot of CD47 on their cell surface when young but slowly lose CD47 as they age. At some point, the amount of CD47 on the surface of an aging red blood cells is not enough to stave off the macrophages, and those older cells are devoured and destroyed, making way for new red blood cells. In this way, the supply of fresh blood cells is constantly replenished.

Unfortunately, some cells that should be destroyed are not. Researchers at Stanford have discovered that nearly every kind of cancer cell has a large amount of CD47 on the cell surface. This protein signal protects the cancer against attack by the body's immune system. Stanford investigators have discovered if that they block the CD47 "don't-eat-me" signal through the use of anti-CD47 antibodies, macrophages will consume and destroy cancer cells. Deadly human cancers have been diminished or eliminated in animal models through the use of anti-CD47 antibody.

there is no miracle drug for all types of cancers

most likely different cancers and different people will end up having different drugs and combinations of drugs to treat their cancers.

This was what I was thinking when I read this... It strikes me that blocking CD47 would cause a lot of friendly fire.

I get these emails that someone in far place was able to cure HIV and been tested on x number of people and they don't need drugs anymore or someone managed to cure that disease.
I just hope it's true and wish for the best.
Well there are still lots of other horrible disease to cure so I genuinely hope it works but I doubt it I myself have a family member suffering from Alzheimers disease.
I read a report that people with cancer cells in their bodies had a way lower chance of developing Alzheimers trading one poison for another.

*Shameless folding promotion*:Folding will give us new insights and might lead us to a cure.

Though I strongly agree with the stance that this should not be made a joke out of, regardless of how funny or how well-intentioned it may be. I disagree on simply accepting any given evidence. This field is, or rather can be, incredibly lucrative. Such that if one were to fabricate results they could easily sell them on as a "going concern" if you like, pocketing millions. One such chap did this not too long ago and made of with somewhere in the region of £40million. I shall see if I can dig it up, was a while since I last saw it.
Essentially all I'm trying to say is although we can hope for a miracle cure, we should at least vet it if only for authenticity if not adverse effects.

Immunotherapy can do wonderful things, but it will cause serious side effects.

Works quite well on CTLA-4 and PD-L1 though. But yes it does cause autoimmune reactions.

I hope so, my Dad has cancer, my sister passed away from it, my Grandpa had it as well, so did my Uncle. Hope they do cure it.

I really hope this thing works, WAY too many people getting cancer this days, we need a damn cure already.
post #30 of 70
so how exactly does it tell the difference when cancer cells tend to be the same as normal one?
