En patient med myelomatose helbredt med en indsprøjtning

Overskriften maner heldigvis til forbehold, og artiklen starter da også med det næste forbehold:

Does this mean they cured cancer?

There are many forms of cancer that respond differently to different treatments; this is just one case of one kind of cancer. Even as far as multiple myeloma goes, the treatment is not likely to work in all patients. But this is a promising step forward for myeloma patients, especially those for whom other traditional therapies have failed.

Med til nu kun to patienter kan det jo knap kaldes et forsøg … Men her om bivirkninger og resultat:

Were there any adverse effects from the treatment?

The patient who experienced a full remission suffered from a terrible headache while the vaccine was being administered. “We had to stop the infusion and give her Benadryl, but she soldiered on with it,” Dr. Russell said. “It was quite scary because she was the first person to encounter such a significant side effect.” For a few days following the treatment, she also suffered from fever and chills.

Not a terrible trade-off for complete cancer remission.

Der er nu gennemført med to patienter, og man starter rigtige sammenlignende randomnized forsøg til september (nu)

What’s next?

This study is reason for optimism, but findings from two patients can’t be called definitive. The treatment needs to undergo large randomized controlled trials, the gold standard in research. The Mayo Clinic expects to launch one of these trials by September.

Hvis det er rigtigt, som der står, at Mayo Clinic kommer til at stå bag, så giver det trods alt mere vægt bag denne artikel.

Skal vi have mæslinger?
