This is the T-cell treatment that successfully fights an almost incurable cancer

Apparently Spanish doctors have found a new treatment that successfully fights cancer. It is an experimental therapy called ARI-0002h. This Friday at a press conference the hematologist Carlos Fernández de Larrea announced the total remission of the disease in 18 of 30 patients who participated in the trial.

In accordance with The country, treatment shows that in 60 percent of patients there is remission of the cancer.

One of the patients had multiple myeloma, that is, plasma cell cancer in the bone marrow. Even before the Spanish treatment it was incurable.


ARI-0002h consists of drawing blood from patients, selecting T lymphocytes and redesigning them in the laboratory with genetic engineering in order to increase their ability to recognize cancer cells and eliminate them upon entering the body.

The specialists emphasize that the remission of the cancer is not equal to the cure, but it does mean the disappearance of signs of the disease.

“Although it is an incurable disease, achieving complete remission significantly impacts the prognosis of patients. It is directly related to a greater survival”, Explained the hematologist to The country.

ARI-0002h belongs to a new generation of treatments that are the great hope for many tumors, such as certain lymphomas and leukemias.
