'It’s fantastic to be part of something that could be ground breaking'
Steve Connor Science Editor |
A young British woman has become one of the first cancer patients to be injected with a new vaccine designed to stimulate the immune system so that it destroys tumours wherever they have spread in the body.
Kelly Potter, 35, was diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer in July 2015 and was among the first to be enrolled on a cancer vaccine trial that will run over the next two years involving up to 30 volunteers.
Medical researchers have designed the vaccine to encourage the immune system to react against a part of the cancer cell that allows it to continuously replicate without ever dying.
At the same time, the patients on the trial will be prescribed a chemotherapy drug that should, at low doses, “lift the brakes” on the immune system so that it is no longer prevented from attacking the body’s own cancer cells, scientists said.
Ms Kelly, who lives in Beckenham, Kent, was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer and was eligible for the trial at Guy’s Hospital in London because the disease has unfortunately spread to other sites in her body.
“Although I had excellent treatment at Guy’s where the cancer was stabilised, it had already spread to spots on my liver and lungs. So when I was told that I may be eligible for this trial, I was delighted,” Ms Potter said.
The vaccine contains a small fragment of protein from an enzyme called human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT), which allows cancer cells to divide continuously. It is hoped that by injecting this antigen into the bloodstream, it will stimulate the immune system to make antibodies that attack cancer cells but leave normal, healthy cell untouched, scientists said.

Soros Funded MoveOn Takes Credit for Violence in Chicago
A precursor to activity the organization will engage in as as the election approaches
Kurt Nimmo - March 12, 2016
Ilya Sheyman, a failed Illinois contender for Congress and the executive director of MoveOn Political Action, has taken credit for the violence at a cancelled Trump event last night in Chicago. He promised similar violence and disruption will occur at future Trump political events leading up to the election.
“Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events,” on the George Soros funded MoveOn. “To all of those who took to the streets of Chicago, we say thank you for standing up and saying enough is enough. To Donald Trump, and the GOP, we say, welcome to the general election.”
"In Israel, medicine is so advanced that we cut off a man's testicles, put them on another man, and in 6 weeks, he is looking for work.
The German doctor says: "That' nothing. In Germany, we take part of a brain, put it in another man, and in 4 weeks he is looking for work.”
The Russian doctor says: "Gentlemen, we take half a heart from a man, put it in another's chest, and in 2 weeks he is looking for work.”
The American doctor laughs: "You all are behind us. Seven years ago, we took a Muslim with no brains, no heart and no balls and made him President. Now, the whole country is looking for work!”
This joke actually won an award for the best joke in world competition held in England.
A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate.
Soon the church was empty except for Bill Clinton who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.
So Satan walked up to Bill and said, "Do you know who I am?"
Clinton replied, "Yep, sure do."
"Aren't you afraid of me?" Satan asked.
"Nope, sure ain't." said the calm as a clam Clinton .
"Don't you realize I can kill you with one word?" asked Satan.
"Don't doubt it for a minute," returned Bill, in an even tone.
"Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying AGONY for all eternity?" persisted Satan.
"Yep," was the calm reply.
"And you are still not afraid?" asked Satan.
"Nope," said Bill.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Why aren't you afraid of me?"
Bill Clinton calmly replied,
"Been married to your sister for over 40 years."

Sounds like the kinda president the US needs!!! Go Trump!
I often ask, who would be dumb enough to vote for the corrupt, lying, self serving, opportunistic Wicked B* tch of the West, a woman claiming to support women's causes but who in reality headed up the #$%$ Alert Squad and crushed any woman her husband Bill molested or raped.
It doesn't surprised me Geron that you one of the many people stupid enough to support this low life.
Muslim truck drivers refuse to deliver beer but a Christian baker has to make a cake for a gay wedding. One gets awarded $240,000, while the other gets fined $135,000! Defend this liberals.
side, "Trump does not tell the truth, and flip flops on almost every issue.", point out where he has lied (I can give you at least three lies off the top of my head where Hillary has lied.) Also if Trump has flip flopped on almost every issue, give three examples. That should be easy for you because according to you he has flip flopped on almost every issue and there are lots of issues.
I believe Geron holds the patent on mammalian telomerase.
As far as I know, nobody who has shorted Geron has ever cut off heads or burned people alive or machine gunned their coworkers.
No trail it is not the same. In the Christian world your fundamentalist sister is not commanded to kill the nonbelievers. She believes nonbelievers should die of natural causes and then go to hell. Which I think is hog wash because I am a nonbeliever and as a nonbeliever in a Christian nation I don't fear my Christian neighbors but I sure would fear my Muslin neighbors in an Islamic nation.
What does your erroneous rant have to do with one of the biggest socialist fund raisers supporting mob rule?
You have no idea what my political beliefs are.
My answer to this part of your rant: "It's you who believe in the "marriage" politics and business which produces the policies of the repub party" Hillary Clinton, The Wicked B* tch of the West (TWBotW). She has always been in bed with Wall Street and she refuses to release her Wall Street speech transcripts. Now who is calling the pot black?
You are just another ill informed hysterical loony left ignoramus, who rants before he thinks.
Four Illinois governors are in prison. Three of them are Democrats. That state is toxic.
I remember back in '95 or '96 when Geron thought it had found a cure of aging. It soared to $75 a share. Stayed there for a couple of days and then slid back to around $10 so a 22 cent jump doesn't excite me.
Islam has been and always will be a religion of conquest and slaughter.
Mohamed was a war lord. The Koran commands at least 45 times to kill infidels. Islam has been assaulting the non-Islamic world for over 1000 years. The Turks were at the gates of Vienna in 1759. The Muslims invaded Spain in 711 and stayed there for 700 years.
The battle of Malta in 1565 turned back the Turks and saved Europe form an Islamic invasion. Queen Elizabeth I of England wrote:
“ If the Turks should prevail against the Isle of Malta, it is uncertain what further peril might follow to the rest of Christendom."
I could site many more examples of Islamic conquest, the most brutal was probably its invasion of India in the 11th century which spurred a killing spree that lasted 500 years and cost an estimated 80 million Hindu lives.
Instead of changing the subject and giving me platitudes, how about a point by point rebuttal with real facts to back up your arguments. Please no loony left PC touchy feely BS. I want real facts but I don't expect any from you.
beaver, what is it about "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" that the loony left doesn't understand?
A Canadian female liberal wrote a lot of letters to the Canadian government, complaining about the treatment of captive insurgents (terrorists) being held in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities. She demanded a response to her letter. She received back the following reply:
National Defense Headquarters
M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg., 15 NT
101 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa , ON K1A 0K2
Dear Concerned Citizen
Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces, who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.
Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defense, to be called 'Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers' program, or L.A.R.K. for short.
In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several terrorists and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care.
Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.
Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud is your detainee, and is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations.
Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his 'attitudinal problem' will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counselling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.
Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbors or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him.
Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.
Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually, since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him. You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of 'respecting his culture and religious beliefs', as described in your letter.
You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a counselor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to Canadian culture.
Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.
