After many experiments on mice have been shown successful in curing lung cancer, scientists have announced that 2016. will be the year they start the trails on human. If everything goes as well as they hope, it would be a big accomplishment helpful even to patients with last stages of metastatic lung cancer. Trials so far have managed to significantly reduce the tumor or completely destroy it.
Next year 56 patients who are diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer will volunteer in trails in the UK. The treatment is done using stem cells from bone marrow, that is genetically modified. Other good news is that the needed stem cells don’t have to be matched to a specific person; already existing bone marrow supplies can be used.
The therapy works by activating the gene named Trail that is also known as the anti-cancer gene, using stem cells from bone marrow. After the connection is made, now modified cells are ready to attack the tumor.
Lung cancer patients are the ones with the least chance of survival among all the cancer patients and only 5% of diagnosed patients live more than 10 years with a disease.

For me, since I got back after my 2 weeks of having my treatment, within 2 days of being home speaking to friends and family around the world, they all noticed the difference in my speaking, cognitively and I was able to listen and integrate with conversations with my family at home.
A wonderful experience, a wonderful care are these very caring people, yes.continue
Everything is done naturally and pleasantly here. Actually I do not feel sick, it is the most important thing – during these 12 days I haven’t felt sick.
I didn’t have the impression that I was treated like a patient. I was treated like a normal person, it is true I take medicines, receive infusions and still have some pain, but I never felt like I was in the hospital.continue
