According to a report published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation today*.

This suggests that adding AKT inhibitors to radiotherapy could possibly be an effective way to take care of many cancers. Study innovator Dr. Ester Hammond, a Cancer Research UK scientist at the University of Oxford, stated, 'this exciting discovery sheds light on the part of oxygen starvation in cancer development and shows that drugs already getting trialled in cancer patients could potentially boost the effectiveness of radiotherapy across a variety of cancers. We wish that this important piece of the jigsaw shall support ongoing efforts to develop medications that enhance radiotherapy, so that even more patients can reap the benefits of this cornerstone of cancer treatment.' Eleanor Barrie, Tumor Research UK's senior science information manager, said, 'developments in how we give radiotherapy and utilize it in combination with other treatments possess the potential to boost survival for a large number of cancer patients.Ben Leedle, president of Healthways, said that increasing healthcare costs were a threat to the economies of all developed nations but solutions that focused on the ill overlooked half of the picture.

Inexpensive cell transfer therapy for cancers An approach made at the Weizmann Institute will make a cancer therapy cheaper and more effectiveOne of the most recent attempts to boost the body’s defenses against cancer is named adoptive cell transfer, where patients receive a therapeutic injection of their own immune cells.
