Honestly I believe there already is a cure for cancers, only the government wont release them because they would lose alot of money from people not buying pharmaceudicals or however the hell you spell it. There will never be a cure.


^^^^ There have been cures for a while now but the amount of money they would lose isn't worth a happy population. It's also a very sick form of population control. Government bad.

I mean like, they will have a cure from a few types of cancer in 20 years; but, there will be still undiscovered forms out there. Scientists will have to do extensive testing that can take years. Also, if computers increase in power at the rate they are predicted to increase in power, it's quite possible we can have a cure for at least 1 form of cancer in about 8 years, or even less.

Eh, who knows.

Its just one of those things, but dude there is a cure for fucking everything. Like you can get a medicine for every problem besides cancer (The #1 most thing that needs a cure) . To me I feel like people just don't want to see that it's out of their control.

I think the reason people haven't bothered tackling cancer is that it's really complex. It's not just a single entity, it's of multiple forms and causes. It comes down to laziness, too. A lot of money get's donated to cancer research and shit; but, not much progress gets made in the short term.

I hope people will pull their heads outta their asses and get the cure done soon.

Skin cancer drug pembrolizumab hailed as 'miraculous' new treatment


A pioneering new drug appears to have cured a British man with advanced skin cancer who had been given just months to live.

Doctors cannot be certain it was the treatment that led to the "miraculous" outcome for 64-year-old Warwick Steele, but know of no other explanation.

Results from an early-stage trial of the drug indicate that it may offer a potential "paradigm shift" in cancer therapy, according to Mr Steele's consultant.

The drug, pembrolizumab, is the latest in a new generation of treatments that prevent cancers shielding themselves from the immune system.

It was tested on melanoma - the most dangerous form of skin cancer - because the prospects for patients with advanced forms of this disease are so bleak.

Just under 70 per cent of the 411 patients taking part in the trial were still alive one year after starting on the treatment.

The result is considered remarkable because all had highly advanced melanoma and a very poor prognosis.

Currently one-year survival rates for untreated patients diagnosed with advanced stage four melanoma are just 10% for men and 35% for women.

Mr Steele, a television engineer from Ruislip, west London, had undergone six months of treatment with pembrolizumab, which is injected into the bloodstream.

Doctors were astonished when after just three months his tumours had almost disappeared. Since then they have shown no sign of returning - and in fact have shrunk even further.

His consultant, Dr David Chao, from the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust in London, said: "We cannot say for certain that he's been cured, but he is doing very well. He was aware that without an effective treatment his survival prospects were not good - maybe months.

"Pembrolizumab looks like it has potential to be a paradigm shift for cancer therapy and is firmly helping to establish immunotherapy as one of the most exciting and promising treatment modalities in recent years.

"This is one of several new drugs of this type being produced. What these early trials are showing is that they are fulfilling their promise ridiculously fast.

"Some of these results are really astonishing; almost jaw-dropping. And these drugs may be applicable to many different cancer types, including ones that are hard to treat, such as lung cancer.

"Cancers adapt to treatments, and when they come back they are harder to treat. Can we dream about actually curing some of our patients with very advanced cancer? Once we get the immune system attacking the cancer, can it act independently to keep the cancer under control? We don't have all the answers yet, but that's what we're looking at."

Pembrolizumab is a synthetic antibody that blocks a biological pathway called programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) which cancers activate to suppress the immune system.

In healthy individuals, PD-1 is part of the process that applies a "brake" to the immune system and prevents it running out of control.

Without the brake, there is a risk of a harmful inflammatory reaction - a potential serious side-effect of the new drugs.

Pembrolizumab was generally "well tolerated" by the trial patients, according to Dr Chao, but he said responses varied widely between individuals.

Results from the trial were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago.

Clinicians do not yet know the true extent of how pembrolizumab might affect survival. After 18 months, 62% of patients were still alive and undergoing treatment.

In addition, around 80% of patients responded to the drug - an unusually high proportion.

A total of 72% experienced tumour shrinkage, including 39% whose tumours were more than halved in size, according to one kind of assessment.

Additional data showed that the drug also reduced the size of advanced non-small cell lung cancers by up to 47%.

Pembrolizumab's manufacturer, the pharmaceutical company Merck Sharp & Dohme, is expected to apply for a European licence to market the drug within months.

Each year, around 13,300 people in the UK are diagnosed with melanoma - more than a third of them aged under 55.

Gillian Nuttall, founder of the charity Melanoma UK, said: "Advanced melanoma is a terrible disease with a poor prognosis. Pembrolizumab represents the latest advance in a whole raft of new treatments in advanced melanoma which have come through over the past few years.

"The pembrolizumab results are really exciting and could represent a turning point for patients affected by advanced melanoma, giving them a greater chance of survival.

I thought that too initially, but then they would also make a lot just by virtually everyone buying the new drug.
