New Cancer Drug Is So Effective Against
Tumors, the FDA Approved It Immediately:

"A small but significant new study is blowing experts away after it found that a particular
cancer drug overwhelmingly helped shrink or eradicate tumors in patients whose cancer
had resisted every other form of treatment.

The study, which was published in the journal Science, followed 86 patients who had
advanced cancer of the pancreas, prostate, uterus, or bone. The patients were given
pembrolizumab, which also goes by the brand name Keytruda, and the results were very
promising. Sixty-six patients had tumors that shrank significantly and stabilized; among
them were 18 patients whose tumors disappeared and haven’t returned."

New diabetes treatment teaches rogue immune
cells to behave:

"A treatment targeting wayward immune cells in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes
may help even years later, a new study finds.

For the treatment, researchers take blood from a person with diabetes and separate out
the immune system cells (lymphocytes). They briefly expose those cells to stem cells
from umbilical cord blood from an unrelated infant. Then they return the lymphocytes to
the patient's body.

The researchers have dubbed this treatment "stem cell educator therapy," because when
exposed to the stem cells, the errant lymphocytes seem to re-learn how they should
