New immunotherapy drug gives hope for prostate cancer

Dec 02, 2019 09:46 IST

Patients suffering from terminal prostate cancer could get 'two more years of life' with a new experimental immunotherapy drug tested by researchers at The Institute of Cancer Research, London. 258 patients who had exhausted all treatment options were studied and were administered the IV drug pembrolizumab. 20 patients saw their tumour disappear or shrink. Immunotherapy has worked for cancers such as melanomas.
