Wouldn't it be wonderful to actually be able to beat these cancers(lung in this case) with your own boosted immune system? Indeed, probably most of the non- prescript
ion helps that some tout- if they are actually really helpful- probably do so by helping our immune system in one way or another. But while that approach will never be accepted by many, at least the prescript
ion guys keep trying and are making progress with patentable drugs. Even if they cost $100K, boy would I have loved to have had such an option:/www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/immunotherapy-transforms-lung-cancer-biggest-cancer-killer-n866356
Immune therapy drugs can transform lung cancer treatment, giving patients years of extra life, doctors reported Monday.
They found that pre-treating lung cancer patients with immune therapy drugs before they get surgery can help melt away the tumor and at the same time limit or even stop its spread.
And combinations of immunotherapy drugs have helped other lung cancer patients get off more toxic standard chemotherapy while also extending their lives.....................
