Genetic engineered T cells destroy cancerous tumors in leukemia patients Gene Engineering - A Non-Toxic Treatment for Leukemia

Genetic Engineering - A Non-Toxic Treatment for Leukemia

A novel form of genetic engineering produced fantastic results against leukemia in a tiny research study that involved only three patients.

Genetic Engineering - A Non-Toxic Treatment for Cancer

Leukemia is a cancer of the early blood-forming cells. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), a type of cancer of white blood cell called the lymphocyte was studied in this study which resulted in 2 out of the 3 patients experiencing a complete remission of their cancerous leukemia, while the third showed only partial improvement.

Genetically Modified T Cells Obliterate Leukemia Tumors

The researchers used genetically engineered versions of the patients' own T cells to destroy at least two pounds of tumors in each patient in just three weeks. The T cell tumor treatment worked much better than even the researchers had expected, and was amazingly fast acting.

Unfortunately, this novel form of gene engineering is still in the development stages. The long-term health effects of the treatment is still under investigation and are unknown at this point. From a natural health perspective this type of revolutionary treatment method can be considered non-toxic because it didn't involve any use of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery.

The same study was published in two different research journals.
