Who doesn't fear the most dreaded disease- Cancer. You wouldn't want to wish this upon your worst enemy, would you? The unfortunate ones who are afflicted with cancer must undergo rigorous treatments, right from chemotherapy, radiotherapy to surgery. It is a tedious process that only sufferers would understand.
What if I tell you, that cancer can be cured without someone undergoing those tiresome processes. Surprising isn't it? With the discovery of a new cancer drug called Dostarlimab, a cure for cancer looks promising.
The Story Of Newly found Cure For Cancer
In a clinical trial that took place at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center(MSK) located in New York, 18 patients who were suffering from rectal cancer had to be administered the new drug- Dostarlimab every three weeks for six months. After the trial was over, the cancer was completely erased. It was not detectable in all the physical exams like PET scans or MRI scans. Neither the doctors nor the patients were hopeful about the success of this cancer drug. It was nothing but a miracle
Can This Drug Be Trusted In The Long Run?
Even though the clinical trial was successful and the invaders were successfully knocked out but still researchers have very little knowledge about the new cancer drug. With only a little evidence in hand, the drug needs to be studied extensively for some time. So, we need to have a little patience in knowing the success rate of it.
The Side Effects Of Traditional Methods for Cancer Treatment Like Chemotherapy
As if cancer was not enough, the side effects caused by chemotherapy are much more dreadful. It is a nightmare for anyone who goes through it. Hair loss, weight loss, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are some of the serious effects caused by it. It causes severe exhaustion and fatigue. The patients have to undergo long-term effects which in turn cause mental trauma, not only to them but also to their loved ones. The discovery of this new drug is nothing but a divine blessing to the sufferers.
Right now everyone, including doctors and researchers, is astonished by this miraculous drug. It seems like all the pain and suffering that cancer patients have to go through would come to an end. But we need to wait as of now because it needs to be further evaluated for its efficacy. Kudos to the research team for this phenomenal discovery.
