Are there any videos that offer an easy explanation of the success of immunologic therapies?
Yes. See these medical doctors speaking at TEDx Talks. They have no affiliation with ImmunoDigest.com and are included here as they have an easy-to-understand explanation of immunologic therapies and their videos are publicly available on YouTube.
The first video is of Michael Jensen, MD, CAR T Cell Expert, Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research, Seattle Childrens Research Institute. MD earned from the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Jensen shares details on an FDA approved cancer treatment with a 91% cure rate for advanced relapsed leukemia.
The second video is of C. Jimmy Lin, MD, PhD, MHS, Cancer Genomics Pioneer who received his MD from The John Hopkins School of Medicine.
Dr. Lin discusses immunotherapy and these types of cancer: colorectal cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, leukemia and brain cancer (glioblastoma) and the cures that have been seen. Dr. Lin describes the therapy as being like “cancer snipers” since a patient’s modified T-cells are so accurate at targeting specific cancer cells.
