Scientists Discover New Blood Cell That Kills Cancer While Ignoring Healthy Cells

British scientists have discovered new type of immune cell which kills most cancers. This finding could make history and set the path for a major breakthrough in cancer treatment progress and development.

Researchers at Cardiff University were analysing blood from a bank in Wales, looking for immune cells that could fight bacteria, when they found an entirely new type of T-cell. 

That new immune cell carries a never-before-seen receptor, which acts like a grappling hook, latching on to most human cancers, while ignoring healthy cells.




In laboratory studies, immune cells equipped with the new receptor were shown to kill lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer.

Professor Andrew Sewell, lead author on the study and an expert in T-cells from Cardiff University’s School of Medicine, said it was “highly unusual” to find a cell that had broad cancer-fighting therapies, and raised the prospect of a universal therapy.
