On the 18th, the secret of the Saint-Road soldier (responsible producer Lee Je-heon / producer Yeon Jong-woo / director Yoo Seong-moon / writer Kim Min-jung, Jung Min-sun) is a special program called 'War on Cancer' to prevent and prevent corona 19 due to the nature of the program covering hospitals.
The survival of cancer patients has increased due to the long-standing research and constant challenges of human conquest, cancer conquest, but limited coverage and side effects remain a challenge to be solved.
Therefore, the secret special of this Saint-Royal soldier focuses on the personalized anti-cancer treatment that changes the paradigm of cancer treatment and immuno-cancer drugs, which are the next-generation cancer treatments that have recently attracted attention from the medical community.
A vivid report on the latest immuno-cancer therapies found at the cutting-edge medicine scene that changes the paradigm of cancer treatment.
Can mankind win the war against cancer?
■ Counter-immune anti-cancer drugs of humanity
Jung Won-seop, who was sentenced to 4 months of lung cancer and has a time limit of 1 month, is still living for 5 years.
Yu Yeon-cheol, who overcame the terminal gastric cancer that was serious enough to give up after 20 minutes of surgery.
What they have in common is that the moment they fell into despair without seeing any effect on the previous anti-cancer treatment, a dramatic response was made with the treatment with an immuno-cancer drug.
Immune anti-cancer drug, the next-generation anti-cancer drug that brought hope to patients with terminal cancer.
This drug, also known as an immune checkpoint inhibitor, works only in 2 out of 10 people.
Research for the remaining eight is being actively conducted around the world.
Find out the various therapies that are being attempted to increase the response rate of immune checkpoint inhibitors.
■ Increase the response rate of immune cancer drugs
Another way to increase the response rate of immunocancer drugs was found on the island of Sardinia, Italy.
There is an intestinal bacterium commonly found in the 100-year-old Sardinia known as Jangsu village.
However, this intestinal bacterium was commonly found in cancer patients with a high response rate to immune checkpoint inhibitors.
Will transplanting these healthy intestinal bacteria to cancer patients increase the effectiveness of immuno-cancer drugs?
We explore the potential with Prof. Park Suk-ryun, who is studying chemotherapy using fecal transplantation.
■ Changing the paradigm of cancer treatment The opening of personalized anti-cancer treatment
Everyone's cancer is different.
Cancer, which is caused by mutation of DNA, is a rare disease of each individual disease.
If so, the best way to treat cancer would be a personalized remedy for one person.
How far can personalized anti-cancer treatments, called the revolution in cancer treatment, be technically possible?
Emily was diagnosed with blood cancer at the age of 5 in 2010.
The new treatment is the first patient to regain life with CAR-T (chimeric antigen receptor T cell) treatment.
CAR-T is a method in which a patient's T cells are taken out, a chimeric antigen receptor that reacts with a specific cancer cell, and then proliferated in large quantities and injected back into the patient's body.
It is a treatment that can achieve complete remission in which cancer disappears completely with a single dose.
Could a 'CAR-T' treatment called 'serial killer' for cancer be a hope for cancer patients?
■ Dreaming of cutting-edge precision medicine and cancer treatment revolution
With the development of genetic analysis technology, personalized treatment for one person has become one step closer.
Personalized anti-cancer vaccine treatment that injects vaccines that activate immune cells by finding new antigens (neoantigens) that exist only in the patient's cancer cells based on cancer gene analysis.
“Tamara Strauss,” who has been diagnosed with “neuroendocrine tumors” that is difficult to treat among pancreatic cancers, is trying to treat a personalized anti-cancer vaccine.
Cancer that has plagued humanity with frequent relapses and metastases.
Can immune chemotherapy really liberate mankind from the fear of cancer?
