Three-weeks of intensive chemotherapy and radiation therapy have saved a woman’s life, with the first case of breast cancer being cured with a gene therapy that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.
The woman, a 46-year-old woman, had Stage 4 breast cancer.
After being treated with a combination of two types of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the cancer was completely cured in two weeks.
It was discovered in September.
“I can’t believe it,” she said.
“My life’s changed.
My whole life changed.
I have no memory of that day.”
“It’s a miracle,” said her husband, the father of two.
“It makes me very happy.”
The trial of gene therapy treatment for the disease was conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, the University at Buffalo, and the University Hospital of Grenoble in France.
The therapy, called the CRISPR-Cas9, uses a gene known as the HER2 gene, which is also found in a number of other cancers.
It is designed to target the HER1 gene, and to use the gene’s activity as a genetic marker.
The treatment was developed by a company called Cella Therapeutics, which has made a number.
Dr. Matthew R. Korte, the company’s chief medical officer, said in a press release that the therapy, which could be used in combination with a standard chemotherapy regimen, would be a game changer.
“The CRISPS gene is the best genetic target to target and deliver a therapy to the patients in our clinical trial,” he said.
The trial was announced in April, but only about 10 patients had been treated so far, and most were treated with chemotherapy and not radiation therapy.
However, the results of the study were not announced until October.
Dr Kortes said the trial was an excellent example of the research, patient care and data sharing that Cella does.
“We were so proud of what we had achieved,” he added.
Dr Ravi P. Nair, the head of the division of endocrinology at the hospital, said that after the trial, his team began working on a follow-up study that could determine if the treatment is effective for other patients.
Dr Nair said the results were encouraging, but he did not want to speculate on the effectiveness of the therapy for other people.
“What we want to do is confirm if there are any long-term side effects in terms of increased risk of developing a breast cancer, so that’s what we’re doing now,” he told FourFourSecond.
“So far, the trial is a good outcome for the patients and it’s good to see that the gene therapy has been successful.”
He added that the trial has been conducted in a small number of patients, and he was hopeful that the results would be replicated.
The research, funded by the National Institutes of Health, has been ongoing since March, and Dr Nairs hopes that it will be replicated in a larger number of people in the future.
He added: “I’m really excited about the results, but I also want to be very cautious.
They’re still excited to get it over the line. “
They’re still very excited.
They’re still excited to get it over the line.
We need to wait and see if it’s successful and it may be a miracle.”
It is not clear whether or not the gene therapies that have been tested so far are effective for patients with breast cancer that have a mutated HER2, or whether the gene can be transferred to other patients with the disease.
The gene therapy used to treat breast cancer in the study was approved by a US FDA advisory committee in June, which means it is currently only approved for use in patients with HER2-negative tumors.
“One of the big questions is whether or if the CRASPR-CASP9 gene therapy will be effective in other types of breast cancers that have HER2,” Dr Narms said.
Dr David H. Katz, an associate professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who was not involved in the clinical trial, said the findings are exciting and are likely to be replicated elsewhere.
“This is exciting because it opens the door to other types.
This is a first step, but it’s important to note that the disease will not disappear for years,” Dr Katz told FourFourthSecond.
He said that while the gene was approved to treat HER2 cancer, it may not be safe to use in other cancers as the gene could be passed on to other cells.
Dr Katz said the research was not conclusive.
“That’s a really big question mark,” he continued.
“But I think it will go some way to answering that question.”
In a statement, the US Department of Health and Human Services said it was “delighted” that Cellabox Therape
