Housecall for Health: Using HIV to Treat Cancer
There may be a new treatment for leukemia in the form of a virus. Genetically-modified HIV has helped cure a 7-year-old of the disease.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
A new gene therapy is giving hope of eradicating cancer. Using a disabled version of the HIV virus, University of Pennsylvania scientists altered the T-cells of 7-year-old leukemia patient Emily Whitehead.
The cells were effective in attacking cancer cells, but caused unmanageable flu-like symptoms. Doctors discovered giving her a new rheumatoid arthritis drug was able to save her. They say it’s a huge breakthrough in a possible cure for leukemia.
