The new adjuvant anticancer drug works in a unique way. It has been seen that the tumor cells form a kind of envelope around themselves shielding them from the host’s immune system. The new drugs break this layer effectively to make the cancer cells more vulnerable and allow the body’s immune system to fight them. Without the protection, the immune cells recognize the tumor cells as foreign bodies and attack them. The icing on the cake being there are no side effects which is a big advantage over the conventional chemotherapy. Some patients have become completely disease free with no residual cancer cells present in the body and no episode of recurrence. While in others the tumors have shrunk considerably enabling them to enjoy their life. So actually it assists the lung cancer patient’s recovery.
With overwhelmingly positive results of the trial, researchers now focus on improving and standardizing the drug further and looking to combine with existing therapy to make it effective on a larger population without compromising with the results.
