Described as having “spectacular effects” on people with serious forms of melanoma (skin cancer), scientists are calling this cure for cancer “very exciting.” So far, one in six patients who is a victim of skin cancer is already being cured by new drugs and new combinations are being developed to save even more people from this disease. Additionally, the possibility of curing other cancers is a reality.
Patients with advanced melanoma usually die within several months of being diagnosed. But, this new treatment gives hope to hundreds of thousands of patients in Britain who have been told they are terminal. According to Professor Alexander Eggermont of the Institut Gustave Roussy in France, advanced melanoma might become a curable disease in less than 10 years.
This is amazing news for melanoma patients all around the world, and for people with other forms of cancer as well. Hopefully, in our lifetime, we will see cancer eradicated once and for all.
