By chance, British scientists have discovered a new type of immune cell that fights most types of cancer, which could lead to significant advances in the course of treatment.
British newspaper “Telegraph” said that researchers at the University of “Cardiff” were analyzing blood samples and searching for immune cells that can fight bacteria, before they reached a completely new type of “T cell”, which forms a group of lymphocytes present in the blood , And plays an essential role in cellular immunity.
The team of researchers explained that after the new immune cell was subjected to experiments in the laboratory, it was found that it is able to eliminate most types of cancer, including the prostate, breast and lungs.
Professor Andrew Sewell, lead author of the study and expert on T cells, pointed out that “it is not unusual” to find a cell that has enormous potential to fight cancer.
He added, “Our finding raises the possibility of finding a single treatment that suits all types of cancer … This type of T cell could be able to destroy many forms of cancer … Previously, no one believed that this was possible.”
Sewell stressed, “This immune cell may be very rare … or it may be in many people, but for some reason it has not been activated.”
It is reported that the cell was only tested in the laboratory, and the treatment method was not tested on patients to see its efficacy.
In a related context, researchers pointed out that taking aspirin pills, in specific weekly doses, may reduce the risk of death from cancer, especially for those with heavy weights.
