French researchers have found that immunotherapy, which today is considered effective treatment at certain stages of cancer, can be applied already in precancerous stages and therefore before the onset of the disease.
Cancer can be treated already in the precancerous phase of immunotherapy, which is considered to be an effective treatment in certain stages of the development of this disease.
French scientists from the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (Inserm), who conducted a number of experiments, published their findings in a science journal Nature.
"In the precancerous phase, the immune system already begins to sleep with white blood cells that are less capable of recognizing the cells they normally need to destroy," said Jérôme Galon.
As a result, scientists have suggested that if cancer cells are cured early in the disease, which can be defined by careful observation of the intrusion into the immune system, immunotherapy may yield more results. to end the development of the disease. They checked their hypotheses based on lung cancer cases.
Immunotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the immune system to fight and destroy cancer cells as soon as they occur.
