Things have been seeming pretty bleak ever since Donald Trump officially entered office, but this amazing piece of news should at least brighten your day!
British doctors are saying they have cured two infants of cancer!!
According to a report in the Science Translational Medicine magazine, both infants had previously undergone chemo and bone marrow transplants, which didn't work.
But using "designer cells" injected into the babies, ages 11 and 16 months at the time, the T-cells attacked the cancerous cells to basically perform a miracle. Over a year later in remission, and the doctors feel confident enough to say they're leukemia-free!
This is so huge, especially as it marks the first time ever that cancer has been treated with genetically engineered immune cells from a donor!
We're no medical professional, but this sounds like a breakthrough.
We can only hope more research put into this treatment will lead to many more successful cases!!
