Turkish Doctors Found Cancer Vaccine!

Ozlem Tureci and Ugur Sahin, the founders of BioNTech, who, together with Pfizer, saved the lives of millions of people by developing a vaccine as the coronavirus epidemic collapsed into the whole world like a nightmare, once again instilled hope in the whole world. Scientists, who are the source of pride of our country, have achieved a success that will defeat cancer this time…

The experts behind the Pfizer vaccine have completed work on a personalized Pancreatic Cancer treatment that could boost the long-term immune response. The inventors behind Pfizer/BioNTech’s Covid vaccine have used the same technology in the Covid-19 vaccine to stop pancreatic cancer from returning.

Prepared specifically for each patient, the vaccine will be used by the immune system to attack tumor cells and successfully keep the disease at bay. Ozlem Tureci and Ugur Sahin, the names behind the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, met with doctors in New York to talk about the vaccine they developed for pancreatic cancer patients. Phase I results of the clinical trial, the first of its kind, were presented this weekend at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual conference in Chicago.

Because pancreatic cancer is often very indicative of such lethal tumors, the findings herald new hope for other difficult-to-treat cancers.

Pancreatic Cancer

Around 10,500 new cases of pancreatic cancer occur in the UK each year. But only a quarter of patients survive for a year or longer. The researchers say it’s clear that this cutting-edge vaccine could be used in other cancers as well. Health Minister Sajid Javid, who declared a “war on cancer” earlier this year, has pledged to invest in innovative treatments such as cancer vaccines. This new research raises hopes that such vaccines may be available on the NHS in the next decade as part of the government’s 10-year cancer plan. D., principal investigator of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Vinod Balachandran said about the vaccine:

“Unlike some other immunotherapies, these mRNA vaccines seem to have the ability to stimulate immune responses in pancreatic cancer patients. So we’re very excited and the early results suggest that if you have an immune response you may have a better outcome.”
