Photoimmunotherapy is a new form of treatment for cancer

Scientists have developed a revolutionary cure for cancer which literally illuminates and destroys tiny cancer cells. This is an important discovery that could allow surgeons to target and destroy the disease in patients much more effectively.

A European team of engineers, physicists, neurosurgeons, biologists and immunologists from the , Poland and joined forces to design the new form of photoimmunotherapy.

Experts believe it is destined to become the fifth major cancer treatment in the world after surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

Light-activated therapy forces cancer cells to glow in the dark, helping surgeons remove more tumors than existing techniques - and then kills the remaining cells within minutes of surgery.

In a world first trial in with glioblastoma, who had one of the most common and aggressive types of brain cancer, the scans revealed that the new treatment illuminated even the tiniest cancer cells to help surgeons remove them, then eradicated whatever was left.

Trials of the new form of photoimmunotherapy, led by the Institute of Cancer Research in London, also showed that the treatment triggered an immune response that could restart the immune system to target cancer cells in the future. , suggesting that it could prevent the recurrence of glioblastoma after surgery.

A special fluorescent dye is used for the treatment with a compound that targets the cancer.

In the test performed on mice, the combination was shown to dramatically improve the visibility of cancer cells during surgery and when a near-infrared light was activated after surgery, it caused anti-tumor .
