Dying man gets cure for cancer

Cancer cure.Can you image the feeling of having five years of losing battle against cancer and later being diagnosed completely clear of cancer cells? That's the true life story of a 53 year old man whom had received genetic therapy - using one's genetically modified versions of their own cells to attack the cancer cells.

The treatment relies on the body’s protective immune system, in this case a type of white blood cell, or lymphocyte, called a T cell. Billions of T cells are created by removing the patients’ cells and modifying them so they developed a certain receptor to help them recognise and kill tumours.
