Microbiome definition[meaning the microorganisms found in a specific environment, that has distinct Physio-Chemical Properties].
A group of Israeli Oncologists have found that changing the Microbiome can reprogram the immune System to attack malignant tumors. This data comes from Clinical Trials at Sheba Medical Center in Israel. Results were published and Peer Reviewed and can be found in-->Journal Science.
This is a first never tried before endeavor, where the researchers fought all types of cancerous tumors, by changing the Gut Microbiome[Tens of Trillions of Microorganisms living in your entire Gut]. Whereby Diet, and other Ingested substances play a role in the make-up of ones Gut Microorganisms. Now currently reported by this writer, and others on HU, Immunology having high hopes for cancer remissions, recessions, and cures--->seems to never work for more than 30-40%, or less, of Test Subjects, across all cancers, which is yet disappointing.
The Israeli Oncologists performed Fecal Microbiota Transplantation, on very terminal ill patients with Metastatic Melanoma who had exhausted all other immunology and other types of treatments.
In the process, the researchers eradicated the patients Microbiome[how this was done was not described]. Then they transplanted Gut Microbiota from Cancer Survivors who also had Melanoma, but who had responded very well to other types of Immunology--->and key here---> these survivors were cancer free for one year. After 2 weeks of the Donor Microbiome was planted by colonoscopy, and the patients has completely absorbed the Donor Microbiota, they resume their varied last Immunology Treatments that were failing.
One patients tumors completely disappeared and has been cancer free for more than 2 years. The others had tumors that shrank more than 50%. In evidence gathering--->the team saw an increase of immune response on a cellular level, as well as in Gene Expression, on the patients that responded well. The clinical Benefit was to see if this type treatment was safe and feasible. The team has moved on to Lung, Breast and Prostate Cancer. As for side effects none were reported.
As I have pressed; all immunology techniques, this one being very unusual, We need to identify the markers[whatever they be], identifying which patients will benefit, from any and all Immunology Modalities. The researchers can see this particular technique combined with other or another Therapy. We seem to be having the same results occurring with all of our immunology methods, as well as BAT, and certain drug combinations. Why do these treatments work for the 30-40%, or less for a group of patients and not others. The answer IMO can be found in the Genome[All the Genes & Non-coding DNA, as well as the Mitochondria & Chloroplast DNA].
Thought you all would enjoy this, as another new technique, but my Fecal Matter is not up for donation, at this time!
