-- we've got some amazing new developments in the fight against cancer researchers may have discovered.
A miracle drug here to explain as a member of our fox -- -- team -- is it's about fit into Mauritania morning we're talking about a protein that is called has been identified as CD 47.
Hope this city 47 is approaching that normal -- secret you know blood.
And that's one of the reasons why -- immune system leave ourselves alone our defense mechanism understand that these are normal selves.
That casts his cells may have gotten really Smart over the past many years and they are coming -- -- they're always see the 47 and so are immune system can recognize and so how do we treat the cancer cells.
We give them chemotherapy we would do surgeries now the study from Stanford is saying like wait a second we have this new drug.
That can take someone has pulled -- away and tell -- immune system.
Whoa whoa these are cancer cells to use our own immune system to attack the -- sales and that's really fascinating.
We're starting to think of cancer as -- -- remotely true level as a supposed to be these Grossman sections of the surgeries etc.
Big news in the big leap forward in the cancer field yet because apparently a researcher in California was noticing that leukemia cells seem to -- -- toward her generate a lot of this CD 47.
And essentially it was out.
Do not eat this part of the cancer and so he turned it completely around and that could change everything absolutely so -- and you know I'm glad I'm glad you that's a really in depth information you just -- donate to leukemia and lymphoma.
I guess what they also took about ten months and -- and we bladder cancer nine out of ten they were able to cure them from black cancer.
If if this really pans out in the human studies.
We're going to see entirely changed -- the way we treat cancer.
We're using our own immune system to find the Kansas knows and that's a very exciting -- big news in this do all right also speaking of cancer let's talk about prostate cancer there's some new tests that are being developed that once again.
Could change everything.
Look PSA has been around for about almost twenty years and it has done its its its service it has helped us to find and screening.
You need to know how to interpret its other prostate cancer specific.
So things such as -- large cross and inflammation can give false alarm right more biopsies more issues now we have more.
Test genetic tests we have other things such as up call health I want you to look at that these are for proteins is -- of just one.
PSA so that can reduce the number of biopsies we can use our biopsies and find out which one we should operate on which one we should not touch base a genetic studies.
Amazing stuff if you have done this surgery.
Then you want to know who is going to recurrent cancer to come back and who he's not.
So I think in the next few years Steve you're going to see a lot of great studies.
Besides -- and they're gonna complement each other we're gonna help reduce a lot of wives is that I'm not necessary.
And surges in the right people and and this is not theoretical to you this is what you do every day absolutely and we're excited about in the for the prosecutors there aren't that doctor Davis money thank you very much -- it is today and I said Steve thank you sir.
