Killing Cancer With Viruses and Immunotherapy

Wow, really interesting work going on here as scientists research killing cancer with an assortment of genetically altered viruses such as measles, HIV, polio and the common cold virus and it's working very, very well at this stage and could be made available as early as 2016. The viruses are genetically altered to specifically fight cancer with no harm to the patient all without the need for radiation or chemotherapy. My personal experience is that my friends and/or family members have died from the radiation &/or chemotherapy more than the cancer itself. So, this is truly a breakthrough that could potentially lead to a cure for cancer as they are getting around 90% success rates thus far. The viruses could potentially work like a vaccine against cancer in the future.

One will want to watch the full version of the documentary, Killing Cancer, as this link is just a trailer. It was produced by HBO so, please put in a request at Netflix to carry it.

60 Minutes Part 2: Killing Cancer, part two

How the polio virus is being used to fight cancer





Immunotherapy has existed for many years prior to the recent use of viruses mentioned above so, Immunotherapy is not the same as the above but, it can be helpful. I include it here for convenience as Immunotherapy is sometimes needed after an injection of one of the above viruses due to an immune system reaction. Immunotherapy basically boosts your immune system to help fight cancer but, the recent studies above have found that Immunotherapy can also help the body finish the job the viruses started, where as without it, it could be too much a toll on the immune system for some.

We tried to get American hospitals to use this type of treatment for Acharya and it could've saved her but, it wasn't available yet and needed more trials and testing. She was accepted into a trial but was then denied by insurance due to crossing state lines. Standard American cancer treatment still sadly prefers radiation and chemo but, with the promising treatments in the links above maybe that will change soon - too late for us though.

Wow, so billionaire Sean Parker has donated $250 million to immunotherapy after a $600 million endowment from Parker last year. What they're trying to do is simply re-program the T-cells to fight the cancer without the need for any virus like the above, which I'd hope would be a far cheaper treatment over the risks of dealing with viruses and their processes of genetic mutations as that all sounds very costly. So, this is wonderful news for future cancer patients.

Here's a good summary:

Quote:
"...The San Francisco-based Parker Foundation has created the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy with the goal of uniting research efforts in the immunotherapy arena by number of top research facilities including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Stanford University, UCLA, UC San Francisco, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the University of Pennsylvania.

The Parker Foundation billed the effort as creating a first-of-its-kind network of more than 40 laboratories and 300 researchers with a mandate to share research and collaborate. The foundation was created last year with a $600 million endowment from Parker.

The Institute’s “goal is to accelerate the development of breakthrough immune therapies capable of turning cancer into a curable disease by ensuring the coordination and collaboration of the field’s top researchers, and quickly turning their findings into patient treatments,” the foundation said."

Begin with this interview: On Assignment: Hacking Cancer

Quote:
"Innovative treatment approaches that hold the promise to cure disease are oftentimes considered too risky and lack the necessary funding and resources. Yet the disease burden continues to grow, imposing tremendous costs in both lives and money. In particular, the prevalence of autoimmune diseases and allergies is increasing, and five-year cancer survival rates are virtually unchanged from 20 years ago despite an intensive four-decade effort. By 2030, cancer is expected to become the leading cause of death in the United States, surpassing heart disease.

Immunotherapies are one of the most promising developments to treat and cure these diseases, but there are currently significant financial and organizational barriers to their expansion. The Parker Foundation is committed to investing in new models and research in order to accelerate novel immunotherapies and treatment strategies to market that have the potential to improve health outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and save millions of lives per year."

Vice President Joe Biden's Cancer Moonshot:

"The White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force’s mission is to double the rate of progress in cancer research and treatment, striving to accelerate what could be achieved in ten years in just five. The goals of the Cancer Moonshot cannot be achieved by one person, one organization, one discipline, or even one collective approach. Rather, solving the complexities of cancer requires the formation of new alliances to defy the bounds of innovation and accelerate the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and – ultimately – the curing of cancer. If you plan to launch a pioneering collaboration aimed at breaking down a barrier that is impeding progress in cancer research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, or care, I’d like to hear about it. In the coming months, we will be highlighting new, specific, and measurable steps that organizations and communities across the country are taking. Whether you represent industry, government, a health system, non-profit, philanthropy, research institute, professional society, patients, or others, I want to hear from you."
