Researchers claim a major breakthrough in cancer treatment as patients in new drug trial show…

In a limited study conducted at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York on patients that had rectal cancer, an unproven anti-cancer medication had a success rate of one hundred percent as reported by the researchers.

It was stated that an experimental medicine named dostarlimab was given to the 18 volunteers for a period of six months, and at the conclusion of the study, it was discovered that each and every one of their tumors had vanished.

Although there is still a lot that is unknown about the medicine and how the treatment trial was effective, there is a lot of excitement among experts who state that a success rate like this has never been documented in the history of the field.

According to the information provided on the FDA website, the United States Food and Medicine Authority (FDA) had not granted approval for the drug to be tested on humans until early August of the previous year “for at least 300 patients across all tumor types.”

Dostarlimab has shown promising results in early evaluations, and with the completion of ongoing trials in first-line treatment or beyond, its utility in the treatment of advanced-stage uterine cancer will become clearer.

One of the researchers has spoken about the new drug: “This medication belongs to a group of medicines that are known as immune checkpoint inhibitors.

These are immunotherapy drugs, which means that they function not by directly fighting the cancer itself, but rather by really getting a person’s immune system to perform the job instead.”

It is also said that the medicine did not cause any major adverse effects in any of the people who took part in the research.

Though, an additional research that was conducted by Dr. Anthony Markham found that just 10% of the individuals who took part in the experimental trial reported negative side effects that included anemia, nausea, and exhaustion.

Researchers who are actively evaluating the effectiveness of dosterlimab have been heard to express a feeling of optimism on the potential of the therapy.
